Ask the Staff Anything

In the hopes that this thread will be used as a tool for good, and not evil, we have decided to give it a try.
In this thread you may ask the staff any question you like, assuming its content falls within the forums rules (i.e. no Sex related questions -- you'll just get scary answers, or about what we really think about you -- we LOVE everyone equally!)

This thread we hope, will not only be a good laugh, but also another helpful tool for the members of this great community!

Want to know if your Signature is within its limits, ask us.
Want to know the perks about becoming a Gold member here, ask us.
Want to know the best way to make a Pastrami Sammich, ask me -- I make the best ones ^_^

You get the idea.

No trolling please, or flaming, and if a question isn't answered, we may not answer every question, but we will certanly try our best :)

Don't expect us to attend to EVERY question without fail and without wait, but with luck this resource may be more useful than sending out a barrage of PMs.

So, without further adeau, I declare this mayhem...I mean, thread, open!

-K​

I think we should have a Members Only section. Is there anyway that this could be done?

Anyways, what's the answer to life?
Favorite number?
Favorite candy?
What celebrity do you hate most?
Love the most?
And favorite and least favorite books?

Formally? *high fives* I was agoraphobic for awhile. Not fun. Never been claustrophobic though. And my question for whatever staff member wants to answer is this: What are some things that you really love? And how about really hate while we're at it.

I am elaborating on the Member's Only section request. Member's Only is, like, you know, a section on the forum only members can see. Yeah, pretty self explanatory.

Also, can the regular members have an ask thread too? That would be dazzling. We could take turns and switch whoever gets asked stuff every five days or something.

There is a question i would like to ask.

When you ban someone, do you ban their IP address at the same time, or can they re-sign to the forum under a different name?

Thanks

Can I apply to become a moderator please?

Dani, wouldn't a members only section be what the forum is already? Only members can post and participate in discussions. Or did you mean you want a section where the staff can't get in? In which case...yeah...I dunno bout that.

Okay, question for the staff - do you have a favourite member (who is not part of the staff)? Not asking for any names since I think other members might feel a bit hurt if it's not them, but I was curious whether you guys have a favourite or not?

Oh, btw, I was kidding about the mod position :laugh:

Do you think you have biased opinions when it comes to characters/games/anything in particular?

To all staff:

What is the SINGLE most embarrassing thing you have done to date.
Walking into my friend's house at 2am, drunk, then proceeding to remove my shirt and trousers and fall asleep in his bath tub, to then be woken up in the morning by his mother, stark naked, wanting to shower...

There are two types of ban, there's the standard time delay/perma ban which isn't IP based, but by account and then there's the IP ban.

The IP ban rarely has to be used, it tends to be reserved for people who constantly break the rule of ban evasion by signing up to the forum with a new account.

Personally I have no favourites here, as far as I'm concerned, while some of you I do consider friends, ultimately I'm going to treat all of you the same.

No really, I'm aiming for world domination.

I like to think I try and remain as unbiased as possible when it comes down to fleeting discussion, but then, it's impossible to be entirely unbiased, otherwise I'd have no opinion on anything and I'd be an incredibly boring individual, so yes, I would say I do have biased opinions on quite a few topics, the one exception being the console wars, because I genuinely do not have a favourite there.

No, when I say "Member's Only" I mean a section that only registered members and staff can see. Guests have to sign up to see said section.
