    I'm appalled, this thread is seriously lacking in drama.


    DDH (or some random admin, I don't care who) go ban someone in Games for no apparent reason, say it was for the integrity of the forums.

    Dan, start a huge thread demanding the return of the banned Games poster. Complain that the admin had it out for that poster that they have ties to some underground forum started by some other random admin to ban that specific person. Toss around accusations of conspiracies, coverups and so forth. If you need help getting in there to find incriminating evidence, find darthpsychotic and ask for help from him.

    With your help, we can bring back the required daily dosage of internet drama that has been lacking from this update.

    We now return you to the thread already in progress.

    Sounds like a damn good plan to me. Unfortunately 90% of Games posters are usually banned. ;)

    [Caesar] Nice, nice. Not thrilling but nice.[/Caesar]

    Glad you are keeping Kads board hidden, and not letting people take a look around.

    Any ideas running through Kads head are most probably pretty twisted. Its a good idea to keep everyone away from his ideas :p

    Actually, I am sorta intruiged about what ideas could be better than sticky topics.

    ReaperFett - That's purely coincidental. I was just fixing up a little thing that I forgot when we wrote this, so you can blame Gandy for the bad grammar.

    THX is used to test mainly system styles and it is also being used to test this new option so that we can have multiple versions to look at at the one time. Test Subject is there so that I could do the original testing without destroying anything, and now so that other managers can familiarise themselves with the tools we have without worrying about breaking anything.

    As for the other forum accessable via the "/" option, I really can't remember. The only thing that I think it could be is the Books forum that we had for a short time. That one has been there in my profile for a while.

    Edit: As for the talk of how useful it is, hopefully it will remove the pressing need we have at the moment for sticky topics, and give us some options that we could really use. Once we get it settled and organised for the forums we'll get it out there straight away.

    Yeah, Kadue. I can't wait until each page here plays a Midi of the "Emperor's March" or "Cantina Theme" upon opening. Bring it on!

    Coolness.

    I'm wondering if it's an Announcement Thread that stays at the top :p

    Now I'm assuming that the latest title feature came with a bundle of other manager options? Cool. I hope they're finger-lickin good!

    Nope, Kadue just figured out how to use the options he had.


    The 'teh' was intentional.

    So for how many months all the managers have been sitting around with all these niftrific options and they never once looked at them and said "I wonder what this does!". I thought that all people immediatly explored all powers they got obtained as soon as they got them!

    You people are weird :p

    Nice update, but not as interesting without the Drama. I don't have to even watch TV anymore.

    I think this lack of DRAMA is actually DRAMA in itself. Absence of TEH DRAMA must be explored.
