    Dam I've been absent for a while; been studying for exams and all that.

    Not that anyone cares but maybe one of you has a level of courtesy or whatever to give me some quick bullet points of what happened in these forums ever since like the MyBrute thing started getting popular and MathBoy lost his admin powers.

    Like why did Xiao_Caity write an FAQ and why do lots of posters have their magic colour in their sigs and etc.


    Tell ya guys what: if someone does this for me I'll go away again for another while.

    I wrote a FAQ because one was becoming increasing necessary, especially because several noobs came in and committed EPIC gravedigs in a very short time. I snapped and asked the dudes in charge if I could write one, and they said yes.

    As for the magic thing... I honestly have no idea how it spread so quickly. Or who started it.

    Good job; grave digging is just confusing and annoying.

    How are the noobs now? Any banned; any feed; any successfully mingled with the community?

    Quite a few have stayed around. A few have fled, and I think one or two have been banhammered. Oh yes, and I hit a couple with the business end of their gravedig shovels.

    I honestly can't see the problem with gravedigging, I always liked to see an old favorite thread come back. Not gonna argue about it, of course, those are just the rules.

    And I'm new here, so hello, GarmGarf.

    As far as noobs go, soviet's had a couple more accounts banned I think. I don't know, check the Site Feedback forum to see what went down. It's just funny to watch how the guy tries to justify everything he does to make it look like nothing's ever his fault.

    As for the magic thing. I noticed it on dark elf's sig and copied it. but I'm not sure who really started it or spread it.

    He got two of his accounts, (soviet and JLT) banned. He has still two accounts alive.

    I still reckon we ought to just cut the problem off at the source, if you follow me.

    Nuking the fuck out of Russia is gonna take a lot of firepower. It's quite a big village, you know.

    Yuki.

    Why don't you just check the threads active since you were gone?

    Xz, the assumption is that he's Russian due to his referencing Russia's "We don't care if you steal other people's shit" policy.

    Actually, I was suggesting we contract a couple of good assassins and watch the fun.

    Well, that could work too. Especially if there would be a ninja camera operator among them to film the whole thing.

    Hire assassins, tell them to start on one side of Russia, and keep killing 'till he quits posting, and give'em $1 a person?*




    *and then we cut up the bodies and sell'em for parts. >__>
