    First of all, Ride-or-Die is trying to take credit for the Quick Reply
    feature. I invented Quick Reply, and only an extremely evil person
    would try to steal my thunder (or wind. Sunshine?)...

    Second. Your idea sucks, -Ken-. Kermi hates me and has already
    given me hundreds of warnings. I swear she's out to get me.
    She'd ban me the first chance she got... I know she's trying to
    gain the other mods' support to gang-up against me. If only I
    knew what lies she was telling about me over at the mod board...

    Third. We all know this board gained its popularity because of
    me. This board was a memberless, GD boardless, ugly, buggy
    internet nothing before I came. After news hit that 'static' (my
    old name) had joined the board, membership increased by
    1000%. My presence here still brings in new members. My point?
    I'm great.

    Ah, Memories. Boy, have things changed. I can still remember
    when nvoigt had a name that I could actually pronounce. Not
    any more. It's been more than a year that I've had to refer to
    him as "In Voy Get." Oh, and LightatDawn. That poor, misguided
    soul. I knew it would happen. I knew he'd let Cprog Mod Fame go
    to his head. It's really sad. After all the years I've been a member
    here, I'm the only one who hasn't been corrupted by the evils
    of vBullet version 2.2.7..

    1 person can warn you up to 33% depending on how long you talked and if you swore during the conversation.

    The higher your warning percent, the lower the amount of messages you can send in a given amount of time. When you get to 100% you can't sign on AIM again for about a day.

Depending on how many points you have you can do things like creating a custom title or avatar. What's good about that is it makes spamming to increase your postcount rather pointless.
    Yes, the store mod rules! But it's really not neccessary for a place like cprog... when the phpBB version is available I may try it out

    I think the forum is great as it is.
    I enjoy this forum more than any other forum, especially because it's not a new one, and there are a good number of members, and almost all the questions are answered.
    none...

    Why not make a seperate forum section called "Program Releases/Beta's" , this would rlly clean up the c++ and game forum sections.

    I didn't "suggest" it. I "invented" it.

    And no, you're wrong. The only time you've ever used the phrase
    "Quick Reply" was in this thread. I looked it up... Boo-Ya!

    I don't hate you ethnic *whips a paper off dartboard*. I don't hate anyone . And I masculin!, would never gang the mods against someone. But does anyone know why the heck my button for the hole in the floor to the boiler isn't working?"

    Now for the suggestions...I don't like it. I think we have a better system here. I mean, what's a "warnable" offense, I mean one-liners, code tages, homework? We'd chase off 1/2 of new users, not to mention all old users would be gone due to the one-liners :-p. Right now our system is based on mod judgement and communitcation. It works very well and the mods talk a lot. Flexability.

    How would banning accomplish anything on a forum where guests are allowed to post?

    I'm guessing by banning by IP, not name

    In extreme cases the person is IP Banned, there have only been two people that I can recall who have been. No I won't name them.

    >Would democratic power be retained

    What ? Democratic Power ? Revolution ! Blasphemy ! To Arms !

    There is no democratic power. The webmaster rules and we are his evil henchmen



    >I can still remember when nvoigt had a name that I could actually pronounce.

    It has been (nv) in the past, but then the new board came and ()s were forbidden in usernames and names had to be at least 4 letters. It's still nv, just with a little bit more v than before *g* As it is just the short form for Niels Voigt ( "kneels" "foght" ) it basically stayed the same. Pronounciation would be "Enn-Foght". The i normally is pronounced like ee in German which would make it sound like void with a ght instead of d, just not in my name, it's simply left out ( don't you just love this language ? ).

    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I think we should do what Blizzhackers does, you know where it says Member, Senior Member, ect, The mods there have the power to give someone the 'idiot' or 'gives links to trojans' tag.
    Signature is optional, I didnt opt for one.
