    Default The Questions Thread: ask things, get answers maybe

    Welcome to The Questions Thread!

    What is the Questions Thread? What can I post there? Why does this post by Money902 read like a bonafide Profesco-style dry humor introduction?

    If you're asking these questions, you're in the right place. First, because this is the Questions Thread and it is where all of your questions for specific information should be posted. Second, because all of those questions you're asking have completely obvious answers and this thread has a history of being used by people who for some reason can't work through simple problems on their own.

    Now that I've probably made you feel a bit nervous about asking simple questions, you can start asking your simple questions here in the Questions Thread. If you want advice to a problem, you should use the Advice thread. Yes, some people in the past have not quite gotten the connection between thread title and purpose, but they're forumrats as opposed to teachers, police officers, political leaders, and published authors, so the world is not yet in their incapable hands. Hopefully, the answers they find here will help make them more capable for such future careers.

    Ask away, wonderers!

    First question then.

    Am I going to get my postcount back? It didn't look like too many other people's were dropped.

    Mine dropped too, and no, we probably won't get them back.

    Serebii himself said that the lost posts aren't going to be recovered.

    It wasn't an annoucement, it was a post in the Chat thread.

    Why couldn't you make a thorough opening post?

    You should've elaborated on what would fly here and what wouldn't. Or, since you don't seem to know what would fly and what wouldn't, let someone else do it. I mean, when you have the Rules thread that discourages short and vague OP's and then right under it is a stickied thread consisting of one relevant sentence, it just seem sort of silly.

    ... You mean disscuss rules which Profesco already did? I'll edit it anyway to make it more clear, however.By the way, I'd like to know what you would put in the OP that's more then two sentences. It's a questions thread, pretty self-explanatory.

    Money902, I'm going to edit your opening post so this thread looks a bit more dressed up for company. It really should make as good an impression as the Rules request, like Lbsweet said.

    Thank you for doing Misc a favor, sincerely, but I'd prefer to handle these necessary threads on my own terms. =)

    Ok, that's good. I wasn't really sure what more to add.

    I'm sure don't people want to talk about it anymore, but Ethan gave the Anonymous_Smod password away and people went willy nilly with it.

    He also hacked Joe's account and changed his avatar into a penis.

    That happened, and Ethan try to ban any Mod Level staff, such as Professco and myself.

    You probably can guess that most staff are not pleased with it, even those who don't go in to misc at all.

    Ive never seen you in misc, so I'm guessing you're one.

    Now my question is; Shouldnt Ethan be IP banned and why does he keep coming back?

    IP Bans are possible to get around (and I suspect that he may know how to do it), and I don't have the Ability to sort out IP bans. I can say that I did do a few IP checks on a few members, that I hate Dynamic IP Assignment..

    An IP ban will only temporarily hinder somebody who knows what they're doing. Short of screwing the evader over IRL (like getting his internet service provider on his case by reporting him), they won't stop until they feel like it. Every ban can be evaded.

    And now for the first question that is not related to the destruction of misc:

    What are some good forums? (not the steam forums) I'm bored of only being a member of this one?
