    What's the whole appeal behind having your account deleted? Last time I remember this happening (RIP JakeXanth), it resulted in a lot of discussions suddenly looking weird due to a lack of context. If you lose interest in having this account then, well, we're sorry to see you go, but there's no need to delete your legacy.

    Ah, I guess you're right. Probably would mess things up a bit up anyways.
    This would have been unthinkable back in 2012, but believe it or not, it's been almost a year now since the last time a user got banned (and that's counting tempbans). Given how significantly more quiet things are these days, and given that drama and rule breaking is very infrequent, how has this impacted your thought process on whether or not to infract a user when you notice a minor offense? For example, within the last few months, whenever you've seen a rapid double post, or a necrobump in bad taste, do you tend to be more lenient, since there isn't an overwhelming amount of chaos that needs to be quickly quelled? Or does the quietness make it easier to focus and give more attention to these minor offenses, thereby making it more likely than before that someone who breaks these rules will receive a warning? Or is it pretty much the same thought process as before, there just aren't as many cases to adjudicate? Do you ever find yourself thinking "well, if this forum was more active, maybe I'd give him a warning for this, but at this point it doesn't really matter, so I'm just gonna let it slide."?

    Honestly the biggest change was probably when we moved to XenForo, it made it so much easier to merge posts that I don't throw out infractions for that as frequently anymore. I'm a bit more lenient on thread bumps too, with how old the forum's getting sometimes I'd rather keep the chance for the discussion to pick up again. Otherwise it's mostly the same with not as much of it to do.
    Out of curiosity, is it helpful for me to use the "report" feature when I notice a spambot, or is it redundant and does it just give you surplus notifications to review when you log in?

    I usually find them/get told about them pretty quickly but all the reports clear up when I remove them anyway so it's nbd
    It's almost surreal seeing you being still active in here. Especially considering I'm almost as old as you.

    X-Calibar still seems to log in but hasn't posted anything in the last 4 months. I tend to pop up occasionally to either bemoan how inactive I am or update the forum software.

    ok so Andy, DT, y'all need to update the forums to add back trophy points
    I could have sworn that just earlier today, there was some thread someone posted about how they were waiting to buy CS+ on Steam, and wanted to know how they could play the English freeware version in the meantime, and that I responded to that thread. Did you delete that thread? Did the thread poster request it, was it a spambot cleverly copying the body of a post, or something else?

    Of course it just had to be a bot.

    There was no way someone would not be aware of how to download the freeware version, and the English patch from downloads page while simultaneously having a CSTSF account.

    You'd be surprised how many real people have done that, tho.

    Then they seriously need to do their research.
    Hi :DD
    Can you please change my username to "massivebox"? I know about the login stuff.
    Thank you a lot :debug:
    Since you're online, can I have my name changed to Lethrys? (And yes, I know this will change the username I log in with.)
    Hey DT, do you know what happened with all of those photos that Andwhy was hosting on Bugsite Guardian? That's where he stored a bunch of photos from these forums in the summer of 2017 when Photobucket pulled a fast one on all of us. I would ask Andy directly, but it looks like he hasn't been online since September.

    I just tried something, let me know if you can see those images now. Also if you need to quickly get in touch with me you can ping me or DM me from every CS discord that ever was.

    Yep, it's all back, thanks.

    legit the only link I could find to it lmfao i had it saved in an old microsoft word doc. I just tried to test it by downloading it & scanning it for viruses and it was safe for me so hope it works for you, but if you'd like to download it yourself be wary of the link as it's like a decade old. should work tho
