    Hello hows it going ask us stuff about the forums and we'll (probably) try to answer it. STAY ON TOPIC thaaaanks.


    Stuff to read before you post:
    Gold Membership is 5 years and 100 posts
    Only way to get GM is through Boostar
    Btw I removed the old promotion way of getting gold. The only way now is to boostar.
    Does the forum appear all messed up? Clear your cache, Ctrl-F5.
    New avatar not displaying?? CLEAR YOUR CACHE, Ctrl-F5.
    Can you see the gold forum (but no posts within) and you're a blue member? That's normal so don't ask why
    Yes, Rockpapershotgun news bot is gone and flagdog is gone (no more flags under posts)
    Yes, flagdog is down. It's gone! Don't ask why
    Yes, searching for blue members is disabled due to traffic issues. Don't know if it's permanent, if you can't wait then buy yourself gold membership. Now stop asking us about this.
    Subforums are not gone, look harder!
    The viewing count turns
    RED when 300 or more people are viewing. Stop asking about it.
    Buying a title or gold member from Boostar requires manual approval by Garry. It doesn't take that long - Stop asking.
    Clicking on embedded videos won't take you to the URL unless it's the end of the video. Blame youtube, garry hasn't changed anything.

    Locking all of the big threads was pretty fucking silly. Was there a specific reason, or just a fresh start?

    Edited:

    How do we view private messages and replies that we've sent?
    If you go into your general settings bit in your control panel, there's a tickbox to save messages into your sent items bit. It will only start saving your messages after you tick this, so you won't be able to view any old messages.

    What are the actual requirements for a thread being locked at the beginning of the month? I thought Garry said 3,000 posts but I've seen quite a lot that were significantly under that.

    I'm not entirely sure but I thought I saw a mod or garry say that there's a new thread every month for megathreads (like LMAO pics and a lot of others that were locked). If I can find the post(s) ill post them here.

    For some reason I can't see any embedded videos. They just appear blank with "Advertisement" at what would usually be the top of the video.

    Doesn't want important info in those threads to be buried under thousands of posts instead it seems making new threads every month makes new content available better

    If a thread is closed, is there anything similar to "reply" where you can see the bbcode and everything, in order to, say, recreate the OP? Or do I just have to do it all manually?
