    From IGN headquarters, "TheForce.net boards will be down for maintenance tonight around 9PM Pacific time, this will only last approximately two hours."

    Ridiculous.

    This is proof that the Administration here is useless. Why wasn't the Advisory Council informed of this? Yet again, we were left completely out of the loop. Typical. A rogue Admin/Staffer or two are taking it upon themselves to set policy and maintenance schedules for everyone else.

    When will this end? When you've run every decent member out of this place and you're left only with barry's and YOTS's socks? That's exactly the direction this place is headed if someone doesn't step up to the plate and bring things under control.

    AYBABTU?

    So how many hours until this happens?

    Time zones are not my friend.

    EDIT: And more importantly, why does DimensionX think he's Sarcasm? [face_shocked]

    Whew. 9PM Pacific. I'll be asleep by then :).

    Oh, and that's a bit less than 6 hours from now.

    DA, I highly doubt Carter set this up. It was probably more like IGN informing TFN staff of the scheduled downtime. Does this warrant indepth discussion when it's beyond our powers?

    Darth_AYBABTU, this has nothing to do with the AC. You don't need to be notified of this. It came directly from IGN and it's something no one has any control over except for IGN.

    Capiche?

    Thank you for correcting me KnightWriter. You would make an excellent Grammar instructer.

    I'm not quite sure if the admins are being sarcastic about sarcasm or if understanding Internet humor and obvious sarcasm are obviously not prerequisites for the job. :p

    But omg I don't know if I'll make it through the downtime!!1 Thanks for letting us know though. :)

    Guys, lighten up. He was obviously joking, even though it wasn't exactly all that funny.

    Obviously, the Administration has learned nothing from the recent sig debacle. They continue to impose their will on the "regular" users like we were all simple house pets.

    Does Aldera still have a forum? I'm going there.

    AYBABTU?

    With all the drama here the past few days, it wasn't funny.

    If I wasn't funny, the mod response sure was. I'm still laughing so hard that I can hardly type.

    AYBABTU?
