Oh Dear!

What's with the smilies!?

Oh - I see, used the wrong one in a major case of 'New Forum Disorientation'...

Obviously ACOL being defunct is :thumbsdown: and not a :thumbsup:

Oops!

Check out the Counter Strike thread. I posted a summary there.

I'm not so sure that's true ("ACOL is dead"). There is still life and decent people there.

One of the things I understand (I think, because nobody tells me that much) is that this site is not in the forum wars business.

The way this has been put to me, though, is that it is perhaps a good time to look above the limited horizons of forum wars and mere gaming sites. The world is a bit wider than that as we all know. This seems to be a cool place with some good people, it's a good idea to develop it.

This site is not in the forum wars business. And we should try to avoid getting sucked into it as this site grows and develops.

Hi fellas.... thanks for telling me about this place.

And whom do I piss off in order to get banned. You know, the forum owner. Is it Nav?

As I understand it, Nav is a sort of lackey bought in to salvage the design of the site away from the colourblinds that were there in the first place. I think we should all be grateful that he consented to help.

OW, sorry if this is a non-PC question. Are you "The Mangement"?

Management ? Me ?

Nope. As much as I would like to set something up that would be free, fast and long term... I couldn't afford the time or money right now.

If I could at least handle the money, I would. Because I can always get someone to handle the administration part.

If I ever did get a site... you all would know about it. Because it would be the most consistent and stable one around.

Surely it would suck.

I really thought that OW was the management here. I thought he was a likely candidate.

Bossman is likely but, then again, we are all Bossman. The argument is, eventually circular.

I will still post at ACOL for the reasons that RC suggests. There are great people there.
However I think we should blackball OldWarrior_42 for lying about his age.

I couldn't afford it but if you want you can all pretend it's me and doff your caps and bow when I enter threads, things like that.

Toilet training, CGB?

I'd like to track down the mysterious site owner, because I'm sure it must cost a whack to get a site going, and - in the same way as with Planet ACOL - I'd be perfectly happy to contribute to keep things rolling along. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of restriction or control about this forum, which is just as I like it.

It was a great idea to hide the identity of the owner. Perhaps The Management could set up a place where they could collect money for the forum, like, for example, my place .
