This is a notice of another zero tolerance crackdown on users being hateful to members around them for no real reason. This is not okay. If you are to be a member here - you are to abide by the rules and treat everyone around you with respect. Anything short of that could result in an infraction or a ban - either temporary or permanent. It will not be tolerated. Especially not if seen by me.
Please remember to report users who are in need of an adjustment by using the "report post" button. Mods can't be everywhere and do not see everything. We will be adding more moderators in the coming weeks.

Rebuilt post count of users after making "Forum Games" our first "does not add to post count" forum. You may notice a slightly less post count on your profile.
Removed ability to put images in signature, dropped PM inbox down to 50 (the few that were over will need to delete or download PMs to continue to send/recieve), and altered a few other things. This is in preparation of the upcoming premium member usergroup - which will be explained in more detail Monday.
The mistreatment of fellow members around here needs to stop. People come here for help, not to be ridiculed by snobby regulars. Members are encouraged to report posts/threads when you see this happening. Mods are to start dishing out infractions and bans accordingly.
FAQ forum is finally open! Still under construction, feel free to contribute faq or questions you would like see answered them! You can't post threads there, but you can reply to the posts with suggestions and shoes will handle it.

Finished doing cleanup of the forums to move posts where they belong. This initial cleanup did not use redirects - so you will need to check you post stats from within your profile to find where your threads have been moved. Sorry for the inconvenience. In the future please make your posts in the appropriate forums. Thanks!
Created various sub-forums that seemed to be needed.
Increased max images per post to 10. Please use with care, spoiler if in best interest.
Added the popular spoiler bbcode, increased file size limit for uploads, and max PMs. Click for details.
