There have been a couple of accounts stolen via compromised passwords this week, we will continue trying to fix them as they happen but I would suggest everyone change any basic passwords and check if they've been caught in a data breach, in case it affects any other websites with more sensitive personal information that they may also be on
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."?
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?
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.
