It doesn't say anywhere in here anything about being against Caspa 2.0's, until that post.

Hello everyone. I am back.

If a thread goes too far off topic, it will be pruned.

If it's a live thread with some bad off-topicness, then I agree.
However, if a thread is dead anyway, and it turns into a somewhat funny or interesting converstation, I'd say leave it be.

Nope. If it goes too far off topic, it will be pruned, regardless of content. If it's nonsensical gibberish (see most of medalmonkeys posts for an example), then those posts will be deleted. If the posts are entertaining or useful, they'll be split to a new thread, keeping the original thread open for its intended use.

His job is to keep the central forums such as this one, Open Topic, etc. clean and friendly.

Rather ironic, considering he was one of those who used to fill it up with junk.

And yet, hypocritically, I won't tolerate anyone trying to be the next Caspa. That's the last thing the board needs right now, and being fully honest, it shouldn't have been tolerated back when it was my time.

One.


Or possibly we could have tryouts! Have a bunch of people who might be good as the new Caspa try out, and we decide which should be.

Go ahead and do it. Considering I've already made my position on dealing with anyone attempting to be the "new Caspa" very clear, it'll give me something to do.

Two.

Read the whole topic before posting.

Don't lie, you're just making it worse.

You can't possibly read a whole topic, fully, and say that 'you didn't notice'. Don't give us that bullshit, we aren't stupid.

Congratz, Caspa, I never knew it'd ever happen.

I'm serious, I just didn't catch those parts. If I noticed them, then I wouldn't have posted that.

Stop the bickering or I'll slap everyone involved with a warn.

What do warns do, anyway? Is it just that, or does it actually mean something besides you're on a short string?

Every warn is worth 33 percent towards a ban. After a while of showing improvement, or just not doing the bad deed, they'll take it off. I've gotten one before in the Better Picture War for flipping BTG off with a hilarious picture of a guy flipping something off and it says 'I flip my wife off when she's not looking!' Search on Google Images flip off and you'll probably find it.

Hello everyone. I am back.

Actually, you can be warned 100% and not banned. I think they do go away after a while, though. Not altogether sure, having never really used the option.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.

No, it means exactly that. Generally, you will receive a permanent or temporary ban if you reach 100% but unfortunately it wasn't always enforced.

As DLotS said, they're simply that. What he forgot to mention is that along with a warn, we can opt to suspend your posting or even your entire account for as long as needed.

Actually, you can be warned 100% and not banned. I think they do go away after a while, though. Not altogether sure, having never really used the option.

They tend to go away after we've watched the behaviour of those on a warn improve :dry:

(Ready for it to be deleted...)

Nobody could accurately immitate Caspa's way of harassing new people. He used words sure to baffle the average (are there actually any here?) to lesser minds and good grammar. He also never used strange ways of communicating.
I'm creeping, not gone.
