Policy 1: Avatars are now limited to 80x80, scaled on upload. I know that gigantic avatars can be fun, but I think this is a pretty sensible limit.

Policy 2: Avatars are only displayed next to comments or blog/forum posts. This will avoid collision with the complex scenario page template, and clutter on the "utility" nodes of graphics and scripts.

Also, I have just realized that in adding avatars to the forum, I have wreaked monstrous havoc on the front page by placing avatars there too - including Nikki's, in all its full-page glory. I'll have to cut down those sizes somehow, and probably remove them from the front page to improve load times.

You are using a space in your file name. I spent all evening yesterday trying to work around it, then I tried to run a bulk rename on the site that removed them, but when neither worked, I gave it up. Take out the space and you get an avatar.

Nice agenda there, but what is the word starting with 'Q'?

Also, I sense that Diprosopus is merely trying to be protective, but has not realized that this comes across as condescending. I wouldn't hold it against him.

"Parsing error in eval'd code" errors always mean that I made a typo while entering code in a dynamic template, that I noticed it a few moments later, but you had the misfortune of loading the page in the two minutes before it was fixed. :)

Although the forum is almost assured to remain empty forever, at least it now looks a bit like a forum and less like a blog trying to dress itself up as a forum. Many thanks to Michelle for the advanced_forum module.

Unless Piperbot has problems with updating posts that have been edited, the first post contains only one picture, and it does not run counter to the family-friendly policy of this board. At that, from the description (I cannot see the picture currently) it does not identify the person photographed, as it shows only a hand. (May be wrong).

In summary, I don't see anything objectionable here. Once more, thunder rolls ominously as I agree with Salmon. :P

It's a perfectly valid, ordinary means of communication, whose relation to a banned former member I don't honestly understand. I have around 50 Spiderwebbers in my Thunderbird address book, with nearly of whom I've exchanged messages in the past. There are real persons behind our member numbers, you know. It's not hard to enter a network of trust that pretty much pre-empts any risks of you having to delete emails from Ed Seymour or his kind.

Done. This page lets you assign groups to certain users, and nobody will be able to edit anything until you assign the contributor group to their account.

Also, I hardly play the games anymore either. I still try out BoA scenarios from time to time, as well as put slight touches on my own eternal work-in-progress, but beyond that I've pretty much outgrown computer gaming.

The votes have been cast, and the site is to be named Sucia Archives, reachable on barred.ermarian.net.

Slarty and Diki will be the official maintainers of SA*; questions to webmaster at barred.ermarian.net will reach all three of us.

A block on anonymous editing has served EE well in maintaining accountability, so the same will be on SA. Account registration is open anyway.

*That's the SA on the Ermarian Network, not to be confused with the less well-known site Something Awful. :P

Why I came originally is a piece of trivia I'm not going to spew out for the tenth time. I stayed because I liked this place and the people in it. Despite appearances (I am increasingly becoming a gnarly oldbie, and behaving all cynical and world-weary and moderatorially heavy-handed) I really like all of you. You're funny, spontaneous, on average about as weird as I am, and while the younguns over in the GF forums aren't all master spellers or great thinkers, we all started out some time. The obnoxious, illiterate newbie of today may become the obnoxious, sarcastic oldbie of tomorrow - look at me.
