I don't understand why this has grown into such a big deal, actually. I see nothing wrong with the post from Elvis above. I wish the change whatever it is going to be would just get done and the whole thing be over with. Seems logical and simple enough, of course always easier said than done. Regardless, I feel for Sicy..... what an ordeal, one I am sure she too would like to see over and done with!

For the record, there WILL be a couple threads here and there that I feel should stay where they are. For instance chat threads in PLEBAns will not be moved, the sing a long game in EYKIW can probably stay there, but the majority of the game threads are going to be moved to the game forum.

Shouldn't the "I've Never" thread be moved into Out Of Control?

I don't believe so as it is usually of a mature nature which is the reason why it is in Mr. P's (which hardly gets any action at all so I don;t see how it bothers anyone)

Well I just got through saying that there will be a few threads that will stay where they are. For forums where the overload of game threads is not a problem, I think that the threads can stay.

The main issues here seem to be in LS, and Zoo Station. I think there is ONE game thread in EYKIW right now excluding the sing along and one or two in B&C. For now I'm leaving them.

Elvis, Sicy, Neutral,

Can I suggest again, removing the post count on the the games forum? The feature which adds posts in there to post counts, I mean.
-The threads have been deemed by majority to not be included as part of the main forums as their content is often redundant and irrelevant. They're games, nothing more.
-They attract high post turnovers, held back only by the excellent 45 second flood control which Sicy was harrassed into lessening from one minute.
-The absence of merit in posting in there will have a marked effect on the number of threads and replies. Certainly not everyone is in those threads to up their count or to merely postwhore, however, the unnecessary nature of these threads has an effect on this entire board. It's a busy addition, yes? I dont look at stats anymore, but I assume there is a steady flow in there. This is not a suggestion for punishment, but more to acknowledge that the threads are welcome in their new home for people to have mindless fun, but the posts are not something to use to gain from. Like journals not counting as posts and comments not adding up either. I know removing the post count wont mean those posts aren't then added to the board's stats, but not having them add to individual's stats might mean you get less pointless waste by posting for the sake of it - an anti clogging effect, if you will.

Years ago Elvis did a server changeover and my 'account' got stuck (if my memory serves me correctly). The default registration on many vBs is either December 31 1969 or January 1 1970, depending on your timezone (I believe, as some people see different dates and the only difference I can see is people's timezones ) I see my date registration as Jan 1970, for example. I think America sees it as 69.
I think it's quite cool
