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.
