So guys, any discussion on the possibility on custom text colour for top posters? The figures TF provided indeed sound like it won't be too hard a task...
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand Binary, and those who don't. Now 1/4th a Computer Scientist (or Computer Science Engineer, depending on my mood), i can safely say i fall into the first category.

300. D:

So far I haven't even gotten 3 valid posts, reason given i'm not contributing anything to the topic.

Eg. Forum: Where do you live?
Me: Ireland!
Message disapproved.

:( I don't mind the five posts rule but just let me make them. ;-;

Usually when we disapprove a post on those grounds it's because while your response is relevant to the topic, what you said doesn't really add anything to it.

To use your example, the topic is about where you life and you live in Ireland. That's on topic alright, but it doesn't really contribute anything to it. Tell us a bit about Ireland - I know most people on the forum have never been there and might like to know something about it. Do you like it there, or would you rather be somewhere else?

That is an interesting idea.
Our main opposition to giving special colours out has always been that we want to make it easy for newcommers to know who the staff members are. If people have problems, we want them to know easily who they should contact. The custom title for 1000+ posts is our way of rewarding the top posters, though I'll admit that it's a little disappointing not to have any further rewards or accolades beyond that point. While I doubt we'll start changing colors, we might think of something interesting to give our top posters.

I completely agree that it is crap considering that I have never read the books and I really want to.

If you're creative with it you can easily get the required amount of posts, so I don't really mind the restriction. I am just glad the content isn't paywalled. As for harsh moderation, this is pretty mild, I've been on a site where you could post on the forums to increase your daily dowbloads through points, their moderators were very keen on keeping the rules. Nearly every post up there was red because of a point deduction message. It also helped a lot in the way of quality control.

<Yeah, its a shame we don't have some kind of list of the best places to post your first 5 to ten posts on here somewhere.>
<If we did we would have to put it somewhere that newcomers could find it easily.>
<Oh I know! Lets put it right where newcomers come to introduce themselves to the group!>

<Oh, yeah. That's right. We do have something EXACTLY LIKE THAT!!!>

I've banned eight or nine users, and the other staff have their own share of bannings under their belts (although if someone could let me know my official killcount, I'd appreciate it. ;) ). Why did this happen? Because they kept trying to spam the board with advertisements. So we disapproved their posts, banned them, and no one ever knew they existed.

Short of that, we'll pretty much put up with just about anything here.

Wait, he said they'll put up with pretty much anything?
Well, I guess that answers my question about language which is probably now buried in all of my other posts from today.
Animorphs: The Abridged Series. Post there so I'm not lonely.

So just shut your face and take a seat, 'cause after all, we're just talking meat. And music?

Well, it's just entertainment, folks.
