• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

  • I've had it made known to me that for about a week now people haven't been able to finish registering or receive email notifications. I can imagine how frustrating this must have been, particulary for our newest members. Unfortunately our site owner is away at the moment and he most likely won't be able to do anything about it for another week or so. Until then, anyone who wants their account manually verified can contact me via their method of preference and I'll sort it for them myself. Thanks to everyone for their patience regarding this issue. -DoubleThink

  • Emails should hopefully be fixed, please let us know if they're working properly now.

Old topic!

This thread was a failed attempt to unite the forum in a time of despair without an admin. MS was being a stubborn fool, and Kage was mentioned a couple times, mainly for being a troll. This thread has no purpose, since SkyWelse came back and 2 people became admins. Might as well lock it.
..or move it.

Why the Satellite Lounge though? It deserves better than that.

Hahaha yeah, I have no idea what I was thinking. I think I'm pretty much done now trying to appeal to people's sense of reason, all it seems to do is upset them. I guess having things actually improve would've just been an insult :D Well, it was interesting while it lasted. Keep it real d00d.

Well it seemed like the only real option at the time. Though this thread wasn't a failure, we actually managed to create an up-to-date set of rules for the forum from this thread.

...Which still aren't enforced and are still constantly broken on a whim. Not much point in having rules if they're useless :|

I see that this thread was moved back from "The S.P.O.T." where I had moved it earlier. If you all can recover the thread and put it back on topic from what doublethink had originally created the thread for, it can stay, otherwise it needs to be moved back. The thread started out with good intentions, but it's become a giant spam topic ever since.

Not low enough.






Lower still.

Actually the spam was only pretty recent, but if it becomes a problem then I can always lock it.

Though there is a difference between a spam thread and a thread with spam in it.

Well if this thread's to go anywhere now then I'd suggest the last few pages were cleaned of all the images and spam posting, but then everyone would just whinge and create more spam, and then whinge more whenever a suggestion is posted. I don't think it needs to go to S.P.O.T. yet since 90% of it is still pretty good, but whatever, I'd rather see it locked than filled up with this kind of trite. And maybe renamed to "Wishful Thinking" >_>
Actually there's an idea: "Users should stop undermining every single rule-related administrative decision that ever gets made". Seems reasonable enough.

Wait, DT, allow us to dredge up some care from Giveafuck bay before you ask us to do what you've been asking us to do for around five or more pages and what we've intentionally refused to do just because you've been asking us to do so.

Oh my goodness what a surprise I never saw that coming. Knock me down with a feather. Well guys, I guess if that really how all of you feel then I am truly powerless to respond! I suppose I could show some respect and let you speak for yourselves rather that allow a single person to pretend that he speaks for all of you but surely you wouldn't expect this of me? No, no, clearly you are all a single being of a single mind who are not capable of thinking for themselves. I am sorry for ever assuming that you all have differing personalities, interests, likes and dislikes, opinions, or anything else that would set you apart as individuals. I guess I should just up and leave these forums because every single one of you is pathologically obsessed with insulting me every chance they get. Yup yup, truly I am once again outnumbered and deeply, deeply intimidated by your combined and ever so powerful efforts to silence me. Oh, woe...
Joker not included >_>

Don't be silly, you and everybody else where quite clearly just spoken for with their complete consent ^_______________^
Nevermind that it was only a suggestion and that SkyeWelse himself seemed to want my input, nope, my post was quite clearly a direct demand because I am an utterly selfish human being.
...
I can understand if you're upset because I kept on saying "everyone", but history shows that naming names causes the biggest shitstorms of all, so I was trying very hard not to single people out.
Also I wonder when people will realise that Jacob is one of the few people I actually get on well with and stop assuming I dislike him just because they do.

Nothing causes a shitstorm like a good old inflammatory remark from Kage.

Glad to know I'm still on top.
