Why can't we keep our titles when we loose our ratings? We did earn them before things went south.

any way for us to modify which color our names appear when posting besides changing the site skin? I've always wanted a red name, but I didn't care about lolkarma enough to try and get sage before the FFXI skin got changed and the sage/guru colors reversed, and now I care about lolkarma even less. FFXI's skin is the only skin that gets all my regular forums and doesn't make my eyes bleed. Smiley: glare

Kao, how did you first fall in love with Wombats and why do you think that they're the perfect minions for your grand plans of world domination?

And for DF, you've said at some point (last year's thread?) that you run your potential avatars by Kao to see if they're OK for the forum. How often does he have to say no? And how often do you not even bother to check because it'd be an awesome avatar but too much for the forums/your position as administratix?


Edit: to tag a question on to this: are normal users allowed more, less or the same as far as avatars go?

Yup, get hired on as an admin. Other than that, karma or nope.

I've thought wombats were awsome since I first saw one on TV when I was 6. They are cute, fuzzy and large enough to field a backpack mounted pulse laser. People wouldn't want to resist a cute and fuzzy wombat invasion. Plus, they work for toast!

And for DF, you've said at some point (last year's thread?) that you run your potential avatars by Kao to see if they're OK for the forum. How often does he have to say no?

Theres been 3 or 4 of them over the years. and the rules are the same for us or regular users. for examples, see "Nipple Bunny"

Some of the changes already went live. A few of the other ones are still pending developer availability, but most of them are there. The more major ones were targetted at newer accounts.

"I" never even got the damned magazine. That was officially the worst promotion ever, and it wasn't entirely our fault as the magazine company was ran by idiots.

Either Tim Pierce, or Kaolian Drachensborn, depending on if you want the real one or the site moniker.

Blue

African or European? also, are we talking a laden or an unladen swallow? An unladen european swallow of average size for example travels at approximatly 10 meters per second under no wind conditions.

I dunno, we should do that soon

I'll buy you a 2 day premium, hows that?

We get enough spammers that I could feed it one of those a day forever and never run out. Though i'd have to watch the chinese spammers. too many of those and the dragon would just be hungry an hour later.

Sure, but no pickles.

We could, but that would get boring quickly.

well, maybe. The short answer is "yes" but, about a year ago the avatar folder location changed, so if it was under the old system, you can still technically get to them, sort of, but they have to be transferred over. Everything is still there regardless, but getting to the ones in the old system can be a pain.

Thank you good sir. I am contemplating whether or not to irritate one of you with said request to try.

Ok, I'll jump in for a question.

This is to all mods/admins.

The Zam Network has grown fairly steadily in the years I've been on, and many staff have been on for quite a long time themselves.

So how about some memorable moments or achievements for you? Any major update or perhaps a Pumpkin contest? Or perhaps an in game event or interview that particularly stuck with you?

Lets see, for me there have been memorable forum events over the years, but limiting it to just Admin related ones, there are a few that stand out in particular. Getting admin in the first place was awsome of course, especially since it was not something I applied for per say. Allakhazam E-mailed me, said "hey, we need a forum admin, you're it" and the rest is, as they say, history. Then there are the usual other firsts. You never forget your first ban. Mine was an everquest II Plat spammer. Then there are the various backchannel things that go on, everything from law enforcement involvement in certain poster ineractions, to marriage counseling for a couple ****** off SWG players... Some have been sad memories, the first time we lost a foum poster to an automobile accident, the ones you just don't know about and wonder years later about. The Godraiden saga. Maybe the first time someone in game recognized me and said "hey, you're that jerk admin from Allakhazam right?"

There have been many memorable events. Some infamous, some inevitable. Seeing the forum reel after 9/11. The polerization when the site was sold. The server outage years. Allanois and meeting posters. It's been quite the ride, thats for sure.
