Is it time to dust off the old mop?
I know that it is a great work behind this site (and all credits to you!) but cant we do something to seperate (or clear) the Message Board. You can find old threads from early 2004 (or even older?)
Why, I remember how pseudo-Silmarils first existed. Someone asked Grondy if they could have a shiny bauble for getting their answer right. And the next person didn't want to be outdone. So Grondy started giving out pseudo-Silmarils. You remember, Amarie?
I wish I had found this community longer ago...this is the greatest website I've ever been a part of, and ever will be. Someday soon, I'm going to read through those old messages! I will gain much knowledge ;) No, Grep has no point in deleating them! They should LIVE!!! Someday, they could even be brought back
I do, and I remember the cuddly badgers Plastic gave out. Ahhh the memories...
Oh, I really recomend that everybody takes a look at the threads where all the past Post Of the Week (as it was called back then) are posted. If you don't have time to look at old thread (very few do), at least look at the POWs. You won't regret it!
I didnt mean anything offensive when I wrote this. You have a point... maybe I should take a look around. The reasonwhy I wrote this was because I tried to join a role-play and I think it was Vee who wrote that the role-play was down... That made me wonder if it was time to "update" the board.
We have quite a few current RPGs and some have been going for some time. Unfortunately we also have a few that have fallen into oblivion because the players have disappeared. It would probably be a good idea to 'lock' those threads and just keep the current ones running. Locked threads can always be unlocked again if necessary.
HINT: It might be a little smarter for the newbies to wander around with their eyes and ears open for a few days and maybe write a hundred posts or so, rather than right off opening their mouths asking for a revamp of the forum because our format isn't what they're used to. Else someone may rudely suggest that if they don't like it, they may leave. As rudeness amongst our members is frowned upon, please try not to upset the inmates and stay out of range of the gorilla cage. :elfbiggrin:
