Not an official announcement, just a head's up

Not an official announcement, just a head's up
As most of you know, the staff was working on a bunch of overhauls based on feedback from the community. So far, the most obvious of these has been the addition of serious threads and the thread title rule. The next step in this journey is meant to be staff-side. You'll notice, and we will announce, a much more streamlined set of rules on the rules page. This is to prevent further confusion over the rules here. What you won't notice are shiny new mod guidelines that will make actions and offenses clear as crystal. There will be detailed records of each offense and action as well. The result of this should be consistency in punishments for rule-breaking.

The staff agrees that over the years, the rules have become convoluted as we've added to them to deal with new situations that arise. However, it might be a little while before you see the sleeker rules (none of which have changed other than those announced. They've just been made much simpler.) They're complete, but Tibs and I are dealing with some personal and very time-consuming issues here at home. As Tibs is the guy who handles the rules page, it might be a bit before they get up there, but I wanted to let you know they exist, and that you can look forward to them soonish.

Thanks for your patience as the forum has some growing pains. Those of you who advocated for them, please make use of the serious threads. I really want to see how they work out.

You guys take care of things. We can do rules things in a bit.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

What he said. ^^^
Nay_Sayer: “Nothing is impossible if you dream big enough, or in this case, nothing is impossible if you use a barrel of KY Jelly and a miniature horse.”

Wiser words were never spoken.

Your things IRL take president. Hoping for the best.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick

I think he started it. He’s just taking his time for reasons. I didn’t want everyone think we just forgot. I have a spreadsheet for that other shit, so if you start voting on it, hit me up.

While we're at it, I just quickly installed a feature I saw at another forum which I thought would go nicely here. By typing @ while writing a post, a drop-down box should appear allowing you to tag users. By default it displays users who have been recently active in the thread.

It also integrates with the Alerts system, so people will know you have tagged them.

It's a great feature and I'm sure your users will love it! It integrates nicely with the notification system as well. Smile

Sounds like a plan. There will be something extra in your pay envelope this week.

I want Hillbilly banned for participating in our side bet in the Pick em thread. I lost a side bet, and I don't want sing a horrible country song. It is cruelty.

I know, I know, I can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first.
