Club PA 2.0 has arrived! If you'd like to access some extra PA content and help support the forums, check it out at
The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
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!

I think this is unacceptable.

    Ignoring the cross-forum bullshit that got started in here....

    If Bogey felt this was an alt screenname of someone trying to be stupid, then he should have locked it and banned the main screenname.

    If Bogey felt this was someone from another forum trying to stir up shit, then he should have locked it and gotten in touch with said forum's owners (through the proper channels).

    If Bogey felt this was a legitimate first time poster, who was misguided, then he should have locked it and PM'ed him the rules, perhaps with a temporary suspension to make sure they got read.

    In none of these scenarios is the thread unlocked with a comment that people are encouraged to "yell" at the new poster.

    If anything, if you wanted this thread to be made an example of, you should have said that in your locking post, and MOVED IT. From my understanding, administrative moves are done in the Monkey's Den, and I think mocking posters falls under administrative moves in a morbid way.

    I'm with ShimSham on this one. If I were not from around these parts, and saw that thread, I would have turned and left this place, never looking back.

    It would be classy to transfer the thread to G&T. But a more important question remains: Why did the poster put up that thread in SE?

    God, you guys are drama queens. This stuff is fine in SE. Quit yer bitchin'

    And to the jackasses who brought up the cross-forum bullshit out of absolutely nowhere, will you kindly get over the fact that G&T is now a proper on topic forum? Just get therapy or something :x

    Well, clearly, that was wholly inappropriate behavior from a democratically elected member of the government. Clearly, we should immediately initiate impeachment proceedings, in order to remove him from office.

    Oh, wait, this isn't the government, it's an internet forum. The off-topic portion thereof, actually. And that was a fucking stupid post. If people don't want to be mocked, they shouldn't make fucking stupid posts. Especially in SE++.
