As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Infractions and You

Apparently some people are under the impression that there is a grey area here, so I am going to be explicit.
If you or someone you love is infracted, and you have a problem with that infraction (or would like to express your glee), you are to PM myself or the moderator who gave you the infraction, whichever is appropriate. If you don't want to talk to us, you may PM the forum admin, who I'm sure would be delighted to hear from you. This goes for any other moderator action as well.
An on-topic thread is never an appropriate place to discuss or even mention moderation or moderator action, and doing so will get you infracted 100% of the time. You are not special, your case is not exceptional, and you do not have a good reason this time, nor does it matter how long you've "been here". This is standing policy for all of the PA forums and certainly not unique to H/A. It is also completely, totally, 100% non-negotiable in perpetuity throughout the universe.
The avalanche has already started; it is too late for the pebbles to vote.
