I see the Trash Can subforum has been created, so I guess the administration is on board with this? I've created an account called FleexBot for the bot to eventually use; I'm open to other names if people don't like that one. Though I did notice when registering that new accounts have to be activat...

Unfortunately we can't make a hidden subforum (as far as I can tell) with this version of phpBB. However, we can make a locked Trash subforum that suspected spam can be moved to. Since the inboxes are so limited on the forum as well I am a little concerned about it getting filled up and losing the a...

We don't take kindly to threats here.

I'd suggest taking the next month to cool down and cultivate positive relationships because you won't be posting here.

Huh, we have word filters now? We've had them for a long time, the list has just been expanded a bit this week. I demand the word "honky" be filtered. I do not feel that this demand is an unreasonable one. You can demand all you want. Honky isn't censored because it forms an integral part of the te...

All derogatory terms are censored as foob so that they aren't easily identifiable. There was one exception, but it has been brought in line. The idea is that when all these terms are replaced by the same word, they lose their power.

Are you saying we should censor the word foob?
That was outrageous. She says she dislikes the use of sexual insults so you use one?

Don't do that again.

I was planning on having it only lock (or just log, if it doesn't have moderator privileges) spam topics at first. We could also create a "trash can" subforum that doesn't appear to normal users and then have the bot move spam topics into that. (It would appear to normal users that the topics had b...

I feel like they've talked about it before and that it only went as far as a basic parallax-scrolling engine. I could be completely wrong, though.

Sorry, Keening_Product. I thought you knew about the "moderate this forum" button :(

Fleexy's idea is interesting, though is it possible to do with our limited access?

Thanks everyone! :) I can't believe how much money was raised during the stream and how many people stopped by to support it! People can really be great.

My body will hate me for it, but perhaps I will do a 2nd Annual Charity Stream next year.

Gaming for Charity

Some of you may know that I regularly stream on Twitch for GOG.com . While I'm not their most popular streamer, I do have a bit of an audience. Every year I donate to the ALS Society of Alberta , a local non-profit that gave a lot of help to my family when my mother was diagnosed with the disease. I...

The weirdest idea I've ever had is for my perpetually-on-the-back-burner mod, Commander Keen in Bad Carma(ck) [http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/Bad_Carma(ck)].

I did post about this a few hours before you (https://pckf.rigeltechnical.com/viewtopic.php?t=2969&start=60) but it's still worth talking about. :D Definitely one of the rarest copies of Keen, but certainly not worth the price it's going for, I'd say.
