I might be in the minority, but I like them.
Word, looks like that genius who made that well thought out petition may have done some good in revitalizing the Arts/Culture movement
Watch it, Carousel, or you'll find yourself attacked by the former petitioners...
By the way, thanks for fixing the quotation marks. Much easier to read now.
Can't someone be at least content in his own mind?
And former petitioners!? I think we have more work to do, the forum isn't created yet.
Yes, you can be content in your own mind, but remember the old saying - children should be seen and not heard, ya newbie.
And yes, yet is the operative word there.

One problem though. I think that the use of 9 different colors is by far too few. Please use the recommended 12-15 next time.
Yep, good update. Although I'm not fussed about the 'Ampitheatre', it's good to know the AC does something...
Hey, we're just getting past the titles DRAMA, we don't need to re-open the Stars DRAMA can all over again.
Internet_Drama: Hello, friends...
The Stars DRAMA was infinitely more entertaining than the Title DRAMA. Besides, we deserve stars, for one day. Is that too much to ask?
Do you want to see Padme Bra just curl up in the corner in the fetal posistion?
OK, a stupid question... what is all this about the stars? I seem to be out of it....
The stars were around a while ago (located next to your username when you post), and were automatically given when you reached a certain amount of posts (eg, 1 star=50 posts, 2 stars=250 posts etc).
Many people wore the stars as a badge of honour, and took great pride in having more stars.
This ideology, of course, led to great spamming of the boards in order to increase post count and get more stars.
The stars were eventually removed, but those that took most pride in the stars really didnt like this. There was more than a bit of unhappiness on the boards. There are still some that want their stars back.
Thats about it really. Just the usual DRAMA.
Oh, you mean THOSE stars... I was wondering what it was about...
I don't want the stars back, I just want to see the cute little guys next to my name for one day. I'll do anything.
Bah, you just hit 5,000 posts...you just want another ego boost
But I still don't understand - the stars are still there, in the "Who's watching you" list. They used to be somewhere else, too? ? I can't seem to remember...
Damn right. When the stars were taken away I had three. I have lived my life in constant anticipation that one day I may see more stars residing beside my name.
Mar, you talking about when they used to be next to your name?
Even when they removed the stars initially, they used to actually still be there, just not visible...but now they are only in WU lists.
Ah, so they used to be next to your name? Like the icon?
Sorta...but it would be next to the name, instead of underneath....sorta near where the "Date Pposted" writing is.
"Nothing is more obnoxious," states Padme Bra, "than when someone states a fact or even an opinion and someone replies with simply, 'PPOR'
The thing is, I see all the time people saying stuff that may well have been pulled from their hineys and stating it as fact. If it's an opinion, and it's clearly stated as such, no problem. If somebody's trying to pass something off as fact, they should be able to back it up.
Just keepin' people honest.
I added a note about the "Welcome New Users" forum being renamed "Welcome Jedi Younglings".
No problem, Nathan.
Do we dare mention the "rename" the Mod Squad proposals?
