Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Topic Graveyard -> Landfill and I plan on actually using it now. Although instead of being a home for all locked topics, it'll be for topics that really should never have existed and are cluttering up the rest of the forums.

How do you differ Landfill, Off-topic and Spam?

Landfill is for topics that shouldn't have ever existed. They have 0 discussion value, and are absolutely worthless even for a joke.

Off-Topic is for things that aren't related to the game or forums, and don't fit in any of the more specific categories. You could call it "General" if that helps.

If by spam you mean the posts that get warned for spam, those are just low-effort posts or posts that add nothing to the discussion. I'm usually pretty laid back on this though. But if your post is complete irrelevant trash or is actively taking away from the discussion then I start handing out warnings.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

New warning type Garbage that's essentially Spam (Major). Because apparently you guys think that the existence of Landfill means you guys need to fill it. It'll be handed out in response to topics that are clearly shooting for the landfill. It's a 3 point warning, so it's enough to immediately tick you up to the next tier of ban lengths from wherever you currently are. It sticks around for 6 months so if you try to pull the same thing when you're unbanned, that'll be another tier it kicks up.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

Considering it's a warning you literally have to make an effort to achieve, I disagree. Put the tiniest amount of effort into anything and you'd never see it.

Why are some warnings longer or shorter than the formula: points * 2 = length in months

at no point has that formula been used

Purposefully aiming for the Landfill is the qualifying thing for the Garbage warning.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

They were promoted to admins so the forums wouldn't be left adminless while I was going through some stuff. Then I decided they were kinda handy as admins so they stayed there. Then hummerz left.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

Even if a topic in Landfill is unlocked, normal users don't have the permissions needed to post in there. It's not necessarily for locked topic but every topic that's trash enough to get put there is going to be locked.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

Time to update those spam filters before Baba Ji takes over the forums.

Perhaps posts hidden by the anti-raid should have their titles hidden too.

EDIT: Reminder that once a raid alert is started, other people need to flag the posts as a raid for the user to get banned.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

Added Tomahawk as a new mod for the moment. We'll see how that goes and after he's settled in I'll most likely start looking for someone else.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

This is an objectively fitted nominalisation.

I think Tomahawk will do great and I am happy for them.

I dreamt that Xenolamb shut down EE and EEU development because of community hate, and Diff locked Game Business and then closed Forum Business because there was no point continuing to develop the forum and he was leaving too.

Then he told me to message him on Skype so I could take over admin of a dying forum.

Dang, I have no life in my dreams.

But also a bit scared about this prophecy.

I'll try to moderate like a second Diff, with maybe more in-thread guidance.
