This is why I recommended to them that they have an individual th. Example: If I start an OP and don't want some goofball trolling it, I simply ban him from the thread.


That is currently unavailable with this software. I'm looking into it, though, believe me.

Yes, free forum software often doesn't have a lot of the bells and whistles that something like vbulletin has, which needs to keep coming up with new functionality to make it worth the cost of the licence. In a forum like phpbb you sometimes need a blunter instrument to achieve your goal.

This forum software works pretty well in my opinion. We need committed members who spend time posting here and which doesn't require abandoning their other sites.

I don't have another site and see many buttons and options here which I think is a good thing. I'm exploring how to link it to my other activities on my facebook and twitter so I can share more when I'm not too overloaded. I've been in discussions with people in the comments sections on different news articles I've entered but it becomes hard to follow due to the amount of comments or the people in the replies get very angry and it becomes so awful and mean spirited that I just leave the convo. I haven't seen so many options like the menus here on this site and all the smileys at the bottom are cute. I've never seen so many types and this even beats my phone.

Hello! I'm glad you're making yourself at home. At some point in the future, we hope to see this board be not so quite left-leaning, but for now? MAN we've got a wonderful group of posters.

If some moderates show up, we'll be happy to welcome them aboard. We just have no tolerance for insanity, and that's pretty much the right-wing in a nutshell.
