    MOD SQUAD UPDATE


    Of Things Once Banned

    • You can still say "wtf" without getting banned. You still CAN'T say "****", "*******", "****", "*** *****" or "holy ****** ****damn ****".

    • We're reviewing the current title policy and considering allowing once again titles for non-VIPs. Expect an announcement soon.

    • Also, to celebrate National Pancake Week, the infamous Pancakes & Waffles forum is back! Rejoice!


    Of Absent Friends

    • jedimasterbac is stepping down from Classic Trilogy and joining the Force... or that weird tree from Avatar, whatever. halibut will be replacing him and ShaneP will be joining hal to mod the Saga forum.

    • Dingo has moved to some Australian place (probably very dangerous) and will be away from the boards for the time being. Wish him good luck.


    Of Returned Friends

    • Commander-DWH is back from vacation. We expect her to work a double shift. No, make that triple.


    Of Technical Stuff

    • The Lit guys have been fuming about the autolocker making the Authors & Artists forum a pain. We feel sorry for them. You should too.

    • Have you been receiving spam on your private email addresses? Drop us a line, please!

    • We're working on new sparky banners for LACWAC, Gamez, JCC and more! Cool stuff, brah!


    Of Problem Users

    • They were discussed.

    I question the Broccoli theme, and DEMAND it is retracted in place of the vastly superior Cabbage.

    I'm a bit confused: I can't recall anyone having the ability to have a title (not that I would care if that happens) if they weren't some sort of a VIP.

    Several years back, a number of users did have titles without VIPship. The administration at that time decided to end the practice of allowing non-VIP users to have titles. We're discussing changing it back to allow users to have titles without VIPship, as they did years ago.

    FanForce has had non-VIP users with titles for years.

    Oh.................how the hell did I not notice that?:p Well, if this happens, can I change my title to something a bit quirky (and would that be an option for everyone?)? :p But, in a bit of semi-seriousness, the MS really should be discussing giving colors to everyone. Yeah, it would mean promoting everyone as a VIP, and it probably will never happen anyway (even if the user base dwindles down to 3 people), but I think that would something much, much better than giving titles to everyone.

    We're not discussing giving titles to everyone - just using it as another level of recognition, such as for regular icon makers (the most prominent of those who had non-VIP titles prior to the change).

    And style of titles will likely remain as they are.

    I remember when non-VIPs had titles. I don't think changing it back could hurt any.

    No new word on the TOR forum?

    Another quick update: I've stepped down from Fan Design as well, and I'm not a Manager Emeritus.
