As Matt Foley once said, "It's time to get back on the right track."
For the next week or two and until we can get caught back up after having experienced our 'down-time', we've decided to remove the reputation system altogether and put a 'Flame Forum' in place. Reputation is not lost, nor reset, just simply 'turned off'.
The flame forum is by join request only. Such a request can be made from here or by heading to your 'User Options' and then by clicking on 'Group Memberships'. The same process can be used to 'unjoin' this group. Once this group is joined, an additional forum can be found under 'General Chat' and appropriately titled, 'The Public Beating of Your Inner Child'.
Posts made in this particular forum are not added your count. Posts made in this forum are not indexed by the board and are therefore not search-able. Polls have been disabled in this particular forum.
All flaming is to be contained in this forum, period. Should flaming bleed into other parts of the board, the offender's membership to the flaming forum will be canceled and their account warned. (Or simply warned, should they not already be membered to and freshly stinking from the smell of the PBOYIC forum.)
After this warning, additional offenses will result in an Opiophile.org membership cancellation (kind of like a banning, but with better verbiage.) This pertains to all members, including those having donated.
Please be sure to read the rules of this particular forum carefully. This forum is not moderated.
