  1. Judas has the solution Bill. The software we uses regularly gets updates, but us tenants have no influence on what the coders are working on.
  2. Well, there's no cartoony feel about these illustrations, they look great!
  3. You're not the one. With a temp ban one is restricted from logging in (for a month). Following one or two warning points one is restricted from posting, but not from logging in (for a day or a week).
  4. My mistake, forgot that person, so my statement was incorrect. Concerning the "secrecy", I'm not sure whether it is useful or unuseful, but my thinking is that publicly stating that a member has gotten a warning (or in the case we're talking about a temp ban) does not neccesarily reduce tempers.
  5. Maybe not the most constructive post klecser. Sounds a lot like a baiting rant looking for a triggered response...
  6. I think "keep it civil" is probably as good a rule we can get, and it's heeded by the overwelming majority of our members. Making clear guidelines for moderation is no easy task. This is a RPG site, so real world politics and religion really have no place here. Everyone is welcome here whether they think Hillary is a goddess or Trump is the second coming of Christ, whether they are mens rights activists or opponents of the oppressive patriarchy, or hold any other polarized opinion, but dicussions and comments about which of those viewpoints are right should preferably be taken elsewhere, as this is a roleplaying game site. Self-moderation is key. So far, only spammers have been permanently banned and only a single member have received a temporary ban. It's a last resort if warning points with 24 hr and 7 days posting restrictions and 30 day temporary banning does not alter behaviour. There is a moderator control panel where the global moderators receive reports about posts and can comment/discuss them. We aim to still keep it moderation-light.
  7. My comment was not directed at you Qizilibashwoman, but the earlier Trump and Islam comments in this thread.
  8. Please leave politics and earthly religions at the door.
  9. For all those with problems accessing the cult of chaos subforum, who are cult of chaos members and have received the password: - Make sure you are logged in with your user account on the forum (using your regular password) - Don't follow a link, but manually browse to the cult of chaos subforum. When you attempt to access it, you will be promoted for a password. Enter the cult of chaos password that you have been provided. Now you're good to go to access the chaos library with the floatsom files. - The forum will remember your password until cookies are cleared. Then you will have to enter it again. Following links to the cult of chaos subforum and subforum within that forum is only possible as long as cookies remembering that you have entered the password are present.
  10. Pinning posts isn't possible, only threads. The thread starter could edit his first post to include any new tips appearing later in the thread, but that does take some effort. Maybe a 24 on the 1-100 dung beetle herding scale.
  11. BRP Central I running on a managed stock forum softwareso no custom coding possible I'm afraid. You can go to a members profile and see their last contributions but not specific to a single thread I'm afraid.
  12. Hi folk! I've recently played Gods War for the first time and enjoyed it much more than I expected. Some rule questions came up though: 1) Permission to leave Hell: Yelm starts the game in Hell. It is stated that he needs permission from a unit with higher combat rating to leave Hell. Can he get the permission from a couple of trolls (combat rating 1 x2), or must it be a single unit from an opponent with a combat rating of 2 or more? The wording on the rules on leaving hell would suggest the latter, but other text suggest the first. 2) Temples and zigguraths add routes and kills, but do they have any defenses when they stand alone, or can a unit walk in and take over withtout a fight if no defender units are present? 3) The chaos empire seems like an integral part of play. Do somebody needs to play chaos everytime you play, or can f.ex. four non-chaos empire play against each other without chaos present? Cheers, Sverre.
  13. I think/hope we'll not have to use it that often that we need a public thread for deterrent/marking the boundaries.
  14. WARNING! Warnings are coming to BRP Central. A new and feared weapon have been delivered into the hands of the moderators to control the wild masses! 1 warning point = 24 hrs restriction on posting! ☚ī¸ 2 warning points = 7 days restriction on posting!! đŸ˜Ļ 3 warning points = 30 day ban!!! 😨 Points can accumulate, but are removed after 30 days. But isn't this cruel and unusual punishment you ask? Yes, yes it is. 🐙
  15. And with that I'll take the advice I just got and move along by locking this topic...
  16. Two of the worst posts in my opinion (now hidden) were written before by initial moderation, so I'm not buying that I played a significant part in setting things off. Sure, as I've allready stated, I should not have used those terms, and I might not "twig" the situation since I'm not used to this destructive debate form. Being from Norway I politically lean far to the left of the average american, but I do not think that aggressively debating the rightousness of your views and the moral fallacy of your opponents' is constructive in any way. Inclusivity loses its meaning if it only refers to those who share your opinions. I've done more moderation the last three days than I've done the last three years before that and I would like that trend to stop. My post to midwinter specifically and the rest of the keyboard warriors in general was overt moderation if you did not notice that. midwinter heeded it and dragoner was the first to blatantly ignore it. His post was hidden and another post with overt moderation was posted in response, and he was only banned for a week after he continued to be disagreeable after that. Could I suggest that you state your opinion, and then yes, actually move along? The silence is not complicit as you imply, but there are better things to do in life than propogating unpleasant arguments with strangers on the internet. And if that is your thing, then there are better forums for it than here.
  17. That might not have been what you meant, but that was how I read it and it certainly continued the debate in the same aggressive manner after midwinter agreed to withdraw. You also seem quite eager to continue it now which I have no wish to see. Take 7 days off to cool down.
  18. Just had to hide another post with racist accusations. This better stop too.
  19. @midwinter I would appreciate if you would leave the topic for now. You have stated your views and are unmoved by the arguments against it, which fair enough, but the last pages show signs of trolling. The debate has gone on long enough and is as I've stated before utterly pointless. So I'm asking you - and the rest of the keyboard warriors of high emotion here - please drop the topic. @Cultist of Sooty I can only talk for myself, but my views on the topic pretty much align with what @Sumath has written in this thread. I probably react more to foul language and reductio ad hitlerum than baiting rants, which might show itself in the few instances of moderation there has been.
  20. Just don't read this thread and report if it blows up anywhere else. We'll quarantine it here.
