The lights are on
In the world of spam...money talks.
Oh no. Didn't ban that guy. Talking about other users in general. I checked his other comments and this seems like a harmless plug to promote his channel. Anything else and we will handle him.
I've had Epilepsy-related issues so I've been lying low and just reviewing when possible. That and banning spam, handling trolls, and trying to compensate; my laptop was dead for a while and I just got a new one. I lurk mainly now.

Harmless plug you say.
Here's is something I worked on for a funny or die contest. Here's to hoping I win :)

This is off topic, so you're technically clear. As long as you're contributing to conversations and aren't posting links to blogs about Lego Star Wars in an article about Bioware - this actually happened - you shouldn't get any warnings. We used to have bloggers trying to get famous who'd spam their articles on the blog feed or bump old ones up to the front page numerous times. Had to ban one guy who wouldn't stop spamming random articles in the guides section.
EDIT: I LOVED that video. Great job!
Speaking of which, the spam that's starting to build back up is becoming annoying. Isn't there a way to make it harder for adbots to create threads?
Also, where's the March Social Thread, and why does no one sticky social threads anymore? (and why is the Pictures of your Life thread sticky not making it stay at the top of the page?)

IT's constantly working on ways to combat spam. It's not a simple process, and changes to the site will naturally come with unexpected consequences, hence the latest few glitches GIO has been experiencing. Oh, and trust; the spam you do see is miniscule in comparison to the spam I used to see everyday before the site purge. Moderating literally was like a part time job for me. Just stay vigilant and remember to report any spammers or suspicious posts to a moderator- the actual report button doesn't and hasn't ever worked. Mike Futter is also very active up here as well.
As for the forums, they've been broken for a long time since the time they nerfed them when the site changed its format. I'm guessing some old threads - Chf's for example - are getting bumped somehow, pushing down the other threads. I just unstickied it. There also used to be more threads posted per page. Otherwise, Meta usually's the one that does us the honor of creating the monthly ones, so check with them first. If they haven't yet, by all means start it yourself and I'll sticky it.
Well, I started it. But no one's responded yet. Probably because it got bumped down by spam.
Provide a link?
I Have found and stickied said thread...as a lurker zombie its kind of a skill set. Lol
Kill'em with kindness, it's a slow painful death.

So Lunar finally rises from her long slumber...
I have been on hiatus from the world...baby mama drama raised its ugly head just as im preparing for a massive overhall at work coupled with the good news that im going to have to go through multiple rounds of hospital visits for my blood disorder. Its been a few months since ive felt human. lol
Glad to see you again, Star, but sorry for the drama and health issues. I hope things improve soon and that you and your family are happy. ; )

I'm in the middle of moving so I haven't had any time to play anything as of late. You never realize how much stuff you actually have until you buy a certain amount of boxes and find out you aren't even close in the number of boxes you needed.
Hopefully soon my life will come back to normal and I can have a date with my video game collection!
I am much better I am healing pretty well, and the best part is i wont have to deal with most of the problems that ive delt with my entire life.
My brothers ex actually admitted that one of their children wasnt his..after they got married. Their getting married was mostly due to her having had his child...this led him to question the other kid...and shes not his either...so hes in a hard place. He wants nothing to do with his ex, but hes been taking care of my niece and nephew for four years and he considers himself their father...its led to a lot of court time.
And the new position has me running left and right trying to keep my head above water, but im getting a lot of help from people that are higher up...and ive been scouted by a mentor as a future store manager so everything i do now is a step towards that...not bad for a part-time job til i could find something better...
I have been neglecting my systems for too long, but Thief and i had some qulity time today. :)
Sounds like things are finally looking up for you! I think Arkham Knight might convince me to buy an Xbone earlier than I intended.
