hahahahahahaha less sticky ke$ha, i like that. and dude it's starred out, im not even evading the censor. people post worse crap in this thread every day :U
as for the dummy acct, i could do that but there's a few problems:
1) when it's in a thread, i can see 20 (or more/less depending on how many posts per page) requests at once. if it's a pm, i have to click back and forth out of the pm. that may not sound like that big of a problem but for this month i have about 300 changes to do, and when it's that many it gets to be a pain
2) people change their mind throughout the month. theres several posts where ive looked at the edit history bc i was bored and saw they changed it like 4 times. if we had an account to pm they couldnt go back and be like NO JUST KIDDING I WANT TO KEEP MY NAME and i would have potentially wasted my time changing twice
3) pm space is finite. i could set it up so the account has more space than a typical user but the max amount of pm's is 65000 so if a few dedicated people really wanted to **** with the system they could send it so many pm's that no more could be accepted. with a thread it doesnt matter how many times someone spams, you can still post more.
still i am trying to think of something to do to at least improve the situation for next time. i have considered soft-deleting the thread so only mods can see it after the month is up but whoever made the dummy accounts this time did it on october 30th so it wouldnt help that
