The forum can't be the same without our friends.

The debate board has been removed.
Whether that is temporary or permanent depends on you guys.
Having a debate board is  PRIVILEGE I had to FIGHT for for this community.
It is a lot of work for the staff, and many did not want it.
Rahkshi was even against it at first.

I enjoy debates, and think they are a good intellectual exorcise, so I pushed for it, and he helped.
We enjoyed several years of relatively trauma free debates.

Lately, however, there has been name calling, trolling, flaming and such in the debate forum.

In addition several members have insisted that a debate be closed because they think they won.
Two have become abusive of the staff.

This will NOT be tolerated.

In addition, I was told that posts had been missed that contained trolling and such, but the people telling me that were not willing to send a link as instructed.
You must assist the staff if you expect all infractions to be taken care of . None of us has the time or the inclination to read every post on this forum.

Finally, when ANY staff member upholds the rules, and then is attacked for it, it is a sad day for this community.
The staff is here to keep the forum safe, among other things.
The rules were not invented by the staff.. they were a community effort, long before most of the current offenders were even members here.
To attack a staff member for upholding the rules in inexcusable, and quite frankly you should be ashamed of yourselves.

The debate forum will remain closed until such time as the administration is satisfied that these things will no longer happen.

One more thing..
If ANY attacks or arguments ensue because of the closing, the offenders will be dealt with in the strongest way possible.

The dream is free.. the work to achieve it is sold separately.

MLNO.  The only forum I know where expressions like the one above are commonplace. Tongue
Everyone is frustrating in their own special way.

A fresh start for the signature, aside for the libraries.

Blade is laughing ominously RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!
The forum is a girl? 0_o
I imagine new people coming to the forum expecting to see discussion about LEGO, only to see RPGs full of deranged characters and insane people talking about cheese and brains.
I'm beet. I don't think I'll do homework tonight.
So, you're a vegetable? Tongue
