    Adding to what Lennie and Brawler said, here's a link to the Trail subforum if you wanted to see what it's like for yourself.

    This question may have no practical use, but it is something I have wondered since I came to the Forums: while the comic was started in June of 2008, when was the forum first started?

    Roughly the same day. We were using old forum software(e-Blah) which quickly showed itself to be extremely outdated within a few years, hence why we're using vBulletin.

    I know we've got a few veteran users who're more aware of the specifics here(I did join on day 2 after all), but I'm pretty sure this is right.

    Re: The Basic Question Thread

    Another 2 questions alot like my previous:
    1. How did the Moderators become Moderators? Was there some sort of sign up in the first week, or were you handpicked, or what? Don't worry, I have no intention of ever becoming one or anything of that sort, and am also pretty sure that's impossible, just curiosity.

    2.How/Why was jranm promoted to an administrator? Was there an opening that had to be filled, or was he voted to become one, or what?

    1. Merit. That's really it in a nutshell.

    2. Confidential information.

    If you were expecting responses with more clarity, that's not for public eyes to see. Sorry.

    Re: The Basic Question Thread

    Whenever the team needed another mod, the current mods picked a member to give the position to. There aren't any applications or anything.

    We pick new mods from the veterans, since the qualities we look for in mods overlap a lot with qualities that we look for in vets.

    Re: The Basic Question Thread

    Before I post in Canvas about video games that I've developed, I need to know one thing: Does it violate Rule 3 against illegal activities to talk about using a freely licensed emulator to run freely licensed homebrew ROMs? For example, is it an infraction to talk about using N[redacted], an emulator distributed under the GPL, to run T[redacted], an NES game distributed under the GPL? Is it an infraction to mention the name of a web site that lists freely distributable games compatible with emulators?

    That should be fine, as long as the sites don't also provide downloads for ROMs that are illegal.

    Re: The Basic Question Thread

    Thanks for the answers, guys. This will (probably) be last question for now, and it is also the first practical question:

    What does it mean if someone "ninjas" their post?

    It means that someone responded before you posted a response, and you didn't see it until you posted it because that's when the page updates.

    It's when someone else beats you to respond-

    I accidentally submitted a not quite finished thread by mi&&&&ting the 'Post Thread' button instead of the 'Preview Thread' button. When I edit it, it doesn't give me a deletion option. Is there any way I can delete it, or would I have to contact a moderator?
    your life will never amount to anything. you are not unique. you are not special. you will never be special. while you live, you will never achieve anything you set out for. and when you're dead, no one will remember you. no one will even mourn your passing. you will go through life a failure, and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Is there any reason you can't just edit it later? What thread could this be?

    I can delete it if you could, if you'd like, but it sounds like all you want to do is "finish" this thread, so I can also hide it if you want to wait until it's actually done.

    Re: The Basic Question Thread

    Maybe hiding it would be a better option. The problem itself is that I hadn't added most of the content I wanted to show, since most of it is in other computers or archives or sites and stuff.
    The thread is this one: link. If it is not much of a problem, I would like you to hide it, please.

    Give me the full details of what you want to add later(via PM), and I'll see to it and have it unhidden.

    A couple times I have sent VMs to people, but they said that they weren't given a notification.

    And yes, I pressed View Conversation.

    There are a few ways I can think of why that could be happening, the top one being that they checked their profile as soon as the VM arrived but didn't notice it. What I'm more interested in here is if they DID receive the VM or not?

    If there's grounds to, yes, but why do you ask?

    TYPICALLY Alt accounts are highly frowned upon, so unless there's reasonable justification on why you're sharing the same exact computer I'd have to ask why bother asking this in the first place?

    Yeah, Eltro, they did get it.
    This problem seems to have stopped.
    And if you're wondering when, I sent a VM to Ultrakirby and that's when it happened.
