The rules threads, what have you. I'm just noting it in case anyone didn't read the link in Siriel's post. If there's something from the old forums you really liked or want to hold onto, 14 days to grab it.

.. man that's a lot of John Stewart bashing via song I need to grab up.

Okay yeah, sorry. Wow, this all happened over a thread I never even heard of. Unfortunate people had such a creepy response to a review.

I sort of figured that would be so, hence making this thread for emphasis as far as "y'all might want to go grab your stuff".

I've seen some but they usually got banned REALLY quickly as soon as they got rapey. This must have gone seriously RL to be a major factor in warranting a complete wipe.

Now we all know the pain DC characters must of felt having to experience things like "Infinite Crisis" etc. first hand. One day you wake up and..oh everything has been reset. Are we starting to finally understand what it feels like to be Superboy Prime?! Has anyone had the urge to eat uranium? Oh Prime, have we wronged you all these years?

They do.

In fact, since there will be less threads that need to be maintained at the top of the page, I'm thinking of creating a stickied thread for it.

Interesting, and since I'm not in any current RPG's the more pressing concern personally.

Still, I hope the rules won't nix those here in Rumbles either.

The weird thing for me was that I had read about the article (and I suppose the beginning of the crazy movement against the article writer) on a different site a few days ago after running across the "## Days Since DC Did Something Stupid" clock and reading that the artist whose cover was being criticized had a bunch of people frothing on his twitter. I hadn't realized it was going to turn into, well, this.

That said, the Community board has a pair of threads for appreciation/disappreciation of the board reset that might be more appropriate for posting any discussion of such in that doesn't have to do with saving stuff from the old boards. (He said, having just posted a paragraph having nothing to do with saving stuff from the old boards.)

Siriel
04-30-2014, 04:26 PM
Siriel, Well that would be nice. Thank you for that.

I should be thanking you guys; I enjoy them too.

Still, I hope the rules won't nix those here in Rumbles either.

I would rather we wait a little before talking about RPGs. Let things settle down while administration evaluates the result of the change.

The League is safe because it's perfectly on-topic for Rumbles.


So, why exactly can't we have a discussion thread? Is it that other threads weren't properly managed in other areas we have to be punished as well?

Part of the new policy by administration is that all general chat goes in the community forum. I'm not entirely aware of how the decision was reached.


Did we lose Sharp? or he just hasn't been on yet?

I suspect he's just at work, since he told me he would be returning.

That is correct.

If you have a question regarding Rumbles' future in particular, I'll answer it as much as I can but please take the general chat there.

Siriel
04-30-2014, 04:29 PM
And I'm serious on this: ALL of you who haven't, go read the new rules for posting on CBR.

Because a zero tolerance policy is in effect, and it would be an incredible shame to lose members of the community because they thought they knew the rules.

Siriel

All general chat is in the community section. Things like Downtown Khazan, for example.

On-topic chat, which discussing the rules and organization of the League is, can still be on Rumbles. Otherwise it would be madness because we couldn't even debate since that is technically "chatting", not to mention all the other boards about discussing comics.

No, the league is on topic for the forum, as it consists of rumbles match. Khazan threads have always been off-topic.

Oh.

I'd missed the "t" in "there". That makes much more sense.

I think you should be able to. It wouldn't actually be exclusive to people who hang out on Rumbles, but there should be no issue with Downtown Khazan there. (If there is, then I'm not currently aware of it.)

I blame Marvel/DC as a whole. They keep rebooting their movies/comics so much that it caused a ripple effect that resulted in us rebooting.
