Should this topic be made into a sticky since we use this to ask you mods questions?

I know. You're do difficult to read! :x Is it as hard to guess your intentions in person?

First, that's *too ;)


And, second, not really. You just have to know it enough to get it. =p

Ben bugged us about adding them, so I tried, and then bugged Bren to do them.. they were added 10 days ago. :)

Can you wish people happy birthday on Birthday Threads even if they don't have a account on SS? :?:

NO! :x

JK ;)

In all seriousness, I think that is pointless since they won't see it and is just spam since we don't know who that person is.

Probably. I just thought it might be cool.

Not that it really maters... but it might be good to delete some of the members that haven't gotten on. I've sent PM's, greeting some of the new member and they haven't looked at them. They haven't gotten on since they signed in. Just a thought. ;)

Have there been any thoughts on purging old topics? There are a bunch of spam topics in all the forums, especially The Front Counter, Character Discussion and General Discussion. Could make it look a lot more neat if it were cleared out a little. And honestly who's gonna miss more than 4/5ths of the topics?

What spam topics? I think most of the topics considered "spam" were already added to the Archives. I don't know of any spam topics in the Odyssey forums, anyway.

Yeah, please give specifics? I do often clear out general discussion, actually.

Goodness. I put the list in this Google Doc because there are so many. O.o

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EcC ... pBpdE0lsvI

That's my list of topics I would remove. Totally subjective. But I think Soda Shop could use a little cleaning up.

There are plenty of topics that could be merged and other things like that. It's become quite disorganized. At least to me it is and I know my way around SS. For a new user the multitude of topics could be quite daunting.

Why is the header still Christmas themed?
If McDonald's got rid of their holiday pies already, then you should remove the header. ;)

Because McDonald's is in charge of holiday timing for everything... ;)

It is like this at the request of our beloved Jacob. It keeps it uniform with the winter theme on the main site.

Why are mass PMs about personal projects to all registered users allowed? It's at the same level as mass junk mailings for the sake of advertising.
