1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.

  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

    It is known that the import process from SMF caused various kinds of issues in old messages. There is currently a project to fix these, for which it is required that the admins know as much as possible about what exactly became corrupted.

    Hereunder, kindly report any issues with corruption in old posts that you see, with links to the posts in question. The important thing is a given type of corruption, not specific examples, and thus if a post shows only some problem already listed here there's no need to report it again. However, if you are unsure, it's better to err on the side of reporting than not.

    Already known issues:

    • ' ' HTML entities scattered throughout posts (fixed in running forum)
    • Link-attributed quotes not parsing, shown as raw BBcode (fixed in running forum)
    • [list] tag not parsing, shown as raw BBcode

    Your help in reporting is greatly appreciated.
