I think we should add some rules, iv'e seen some Unproductive posting and spam, which will eventually make the forums a big mess....

Two men enter, one man leaves!

(oh wait... that's unproductive)

I think that eventually some rules would be a good idea, but I think when you're first getting started you want to encourage discussion, not discourage it. So at least to start, "don't be an asshat" should suffice...

Hum, I haven't seen spam yet. If you do make sure to report it right away (there is a little button on the bottom which will report any post).

Steve, who are the Moderators? The only real authority I've seen is you.

I'm it for now. I keep on top of things here, I read everything (so far) but I don't always post. In time I will make moderators, but only after someone has truly proven themselves to be a constructive member, who has the time, the energy, and who conveys the correct image that I want. To quote Spiderman, "with great power comes great responsibility".

Heh, of course this might just be "yet another gaming web site" but to me it's my gaming web site and I want to make sure that it keeps a certain level of professionalism and that people can always count to come here and have a good discussion on gaming/entertainment/geek culture. So in time as it gets bigger and I have to spread myself out a bit I will create moderators and the like. But keep up the good work...

Can the moderaters have some really great name like the Justice League of Super beings?

hahaha, good one Sync. I didn't think you had any other Steve cause the site was so small, but I thought I would ask so I'd know who else to respect and fear. I don't think it's just your gaming web site anymore, you're starting to grow a community who also cares about it.

Hmm, that's a fascinating concept. Oh, you ironically spelled "wrong" wrong...

In the future, I think everyone else that's active now will have been a moderator at some point except me. And then Leng will take a long break and go to France or something, and when he comes back, he freaks out and deletes half of the forums.

$10 to be paid (by me)  if Leng deletes half the forums before everyone but me is a mod or Leng deletes significantly more or less than one half.

And if I become a mod, why, then I'll use the secret time machine to go back and change this post!

First was Jayce, but if you'll look he hasn't been on in a while, and his moderator rank has been removed if you check his profile. Now brings the Reign of LadyM! Sound the Golden Trumpets!

"We're out of Golden Trumpets."

The Silver Trombones?

"None of those either."

The Bronze Saxaphones?

"Um, funny story there, see my Cousin has a Jazz band that..."

Do we have anything?!

*5 minutes later....

Sound the Platinum Kazoos!
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.
