While I personally tend towards the subtle, I wouldn't have registered here if I wasn't willing to put up with the heat in the kitchen, so to speak. And tgdmb *is* pretty well-known for being a seat of innovation in TTRPG circles, primarily thanks to Frank and a couple of migrants from the old-school wizards.com CharOp boards (where I used to post under a different, but similar, name).

Anyhow, I agree with Prak that as long as you don't start spam advertising us, asking for criticism of your system is not a problem at all.

Be forewarned: No regular poster will think twice before telling you what they think of your system and how it reflects on you personally.

I very much appreciate your response, and if I didn't want honest feedback, I wouldn't bother asking for it. More to the point here, though, I'm cognizant enough to understand that feedback is probably going to be delivered in tgdmb's particular idiom, and I'm not terribly likely to be offended by that.

Just to clarify:

Invisible post bug thread locked due to spamminess or is abusing that bug a rulesy issue?

The bug doesn't bother me, though we should probably add it to the fix-it list.

The spamminess of the thread was the issue.

So, I notice we have a new word filter. This raises a few questions:

1. What words are filtered? I'd rather not make a test post just to figure it out.
2. Do we get in trouble if we exceed a certain amount of words filtered per post or anything like that?
3. What brought this on, anyways?

Naturally, I can't list the words directly, so here we go:

  • Col. Stinkmeaner's (The Boondocks) favorite racial epithet. Only he pronounces it "Nee-yig-uh" and uses it on everybody, or sometimes just as an exclamation on its own. Or rather he did. He's dead now.

  • Clint Eastwood's (Gran Torino) euphemism for "Asian".

  • The American equivalent of the British "fanny"

    Those have been in there since the beginning.

    Recently, at the request of a few posters, I've added "British cigarette" and most of its iterations. No great loss, as PR is the only one that uses with anything approaching regularity.

    As far as #2, I'm way more concerned with filter dodging than words per post or anything like that. If it becomes a problem, I'll let you know.

    I think that one might have been my fault. But I'm not sure. After all, there was that one guy who kept flipping out over Frank's "If you are not joking about the paladin spellcasting I will murder your family" line.

    It was ages ago, anyway.

    Fanny: in America that means the bottom. In England and Australia it refers to the vagina. So the word is... well there's this nice little place in England called Scunthorpe. You'll find the word there. Literally.

    As for the Asian euphemism, IIRC it was the term used in... the Korean war?
    I have only seen it twice on the forums here. First because a bunch of nonsense was described as gobbelty-[EDITED], and the second the result of a typo of "goop" (goop of course being ooze or similar crap).

    Yeah, I remember that little shit. It's too bad, cause I've made some vivid threats....

    Had to deal with one of the local crazies, and I promised my boss I wouldn't tell her I was going to pin her down, take out my knife and scrape all the meat off the bones of her face, but if she behaved properly I'd kill her before I started.

    Are custom titles, upon request, permitted? What are the different titles, and their associated post-counts?

    I know you thought this day would never come, but I want to add a rule. Can we make failing to fix your tags after you have become aware that they are broken a bannable offense?

    I mean, it is basically just deliberately sabotaging the board. I'm fine with just putting Darwinism's new account on ignore if I have to, but if he isn't going to fix his tags, I'm not sure I can justify allowing him to continue posting.

    I can prove he now knows about them and hasn't yet fixed them. EDIT: and now never will, since you have.

    I don't mean to ban him right now. But if we are going to have SA trolls, they should be required to not leave their tags broken.

    I am more concerned about deterrence than punishment. If he fixes them now, I don't care.

    Completely independent of the Darwinism issue, that's probably a good rule to add. Intentionally leaving broken tags everywhere is shit.

    there are some common BBCode closing tags you could just spam at the end of a post if you dont preview the post to make sure it doesnt kill the page, and everyone can see their post after posting to be able to tell that the post broke the page.

    if someone is doing it VERY OFTEN, they might be doing it on purpose or need a refresher course in phpBB tags.

    EDIT: just checked. adding extra close quote tags, cause page malfunction, AFTER seen in preview when added to the rest of the page. confused confused

    What is the forum's policy towards thread proliferation?

    Specifically, I'm kicking off a PbP Ars Magica game, and it is the custom with Ars Magica PbP to run many threads in parallel, gradually letting each one peter out rather than keeping the game in one thread. However, I realise that this may get in everybody else's way, and wanted to clear it with the board residents before I went in and did it.

    Usually forum games here use two threads, one IC, one OOC. I'm not sure what AM would need more than that for.

    It's because Ars Magica games often run with parallel overlapping scenes to get around the slow pace of PbP but to take advantage of its nonlinearity compared to tabletop. For example, there's a game on the Atlas Games forums in which the covenant is preparing to host a Tribunal (and thus busy building showy magitech stuff to host a load of magi) when they're not exploring, enduring raids from monsters, or RPing day to say covenant life. Keeping each in its own thread allows players to jump back and forth between them while keeping each plotline straightforward in its own thread. Trying to do all of that in a single IC thread would get horribly confusing.

    Edit to say: I understand that having each season of adventure in its own thread is only possible in games which have dedicated subforums. Bearing this in mind and wanting to be a good forum member, if I was asked how many threads would be reasonable, bearing in mind that other people use that forum too, I'd say four: OOC, IC Adventuring, semi-IC Lab, and IC Covenant Improvement / At-Home RP.

    However, because I'm still new to the forum, I'm happy to comply with your norms.
