What is this for?
And where did the other hidden forums go?

That was for the 8th Blades of Avernum Contest, and it was private for the duration of judging. When the contest was over, *i tried to turn it back into a public forum, so everyone could see the deliberations (which made sense). However, UBB deleted all the topics after it was made public (which made no sense).

I don't know about the other forums.

When a new forum was created (I believe it was the one for Avernum 4), the secret forums were deleted and the BoA Editor forum was semi-merged with the Blades of Avernum forum. It was brought to Jeff's attention that the BoA Editor Forum had disappeared, and he unmerged it. At least, I think that's how it happened.

The invisible forums (the old Geneforge and Geneforge 2 Forums) were deleted when the Geneforge 4 Forum was created, not the Avernum 4 Forum, but other than that, Dikiyoba thinks that's accurate.

Yes, we wanted to develop a cult that dwelled in the hidden forums, but they were discontinued. They weren't linked to, but you could type in the addresses.

For a while there was a thread that mentioned the hidden forums and provided links to them. They got removed and the links no longer work.

It provided a secret place to build up post counts without being seen.

Exactly. All very simple. Now, please look directly at the light.

Close. He saw that the BoA forums had been merged, went librarian-poo and made Drakey put it back the way it was. :P

It's from Discworld, in which an orangutan is a librarian. Do the math.

I don't know Pratchett either. I searched Wikipedia for "librarian poo" to find that.

I read this as "libertarian poo" at first, which is an eerily accurate description of much of Wikipedia.

Ooh! And I make another stupid comment before I quote; in this case Thuryl said it.

That's a rather interesting interpretation. I've failed to see the connection though.

democrat : (n) an adherent or advocate of democracy, esp. one who believes in or practices social equality.

I would be proud to call myself a democrat. Less so inclined to call myself a Democrat. Is there some subtle difference in pronunciation?

Unless you're a speaker of Greek, I don't know of any exceptions to the American pronunciation.

Libertarianism is a political philosophy maintaining that all persons are the absolute owners of their own lives, and should be free to do whatever they wish with their persons or property, provided they allow others the same liberty and avoid abusing their liberty.
Freedom!

Libertarianism is the best concept that sprouted from the Enlightenment. In this case, Libertarianism is strongly influenced by John Locke's Social Contract Theory .
