Please, stop letting guests post in here. The only guests we ever get are spam advertisers.

You think it's annoying, try being the one who has to delete them all.

Personally, I'm all for trying to find a way to send a nasty lil virus or shock back across the internet to the computer of the jerks that do this crap. I suppose that's a little far-fetched, but a man can dream though. *sighs*

They register? I didn't know that was possible with spam-bots.

Some of them are downright sickening. No, I don't wanna see cum shot and big dicks. Nor do I want to here about your lewd encounters with some guy your not even married to.

My thoughts exactly Quirrith. Part of me wonders what in the world would draw them to put such adds in AO, then I realize that they are spam threads and don't really operate under any modes of reason that would be recognizable outside of a Lovecraft novel.

Right. I wouldn't be as ticked if they were just the occasional "Buy ___!", but kids view this forum and they may go home to their moms saying "Hey! Guess what I saw today!"

And no, I don't consider myself a kid even though I'm only 14. tongue.gif

Hey, as far as I am concerned, maturity is what matters the most. Somebody can be 14 and be a lot more mature than most of the people my age have been there whole lives. It's all in how you handle yourself. smile.gif

well, um, my nookz0rz wil pwn ur matturitie.


Yes, I definately think that guests should not be able to post. And I'm still wondering how they got away posting (typed) pornography without being legally bound to put a warning.

And, something which has nothing to do with this:

How many posts do I need to make my own member title?

I think the posts you need are somewhere around 200 or so. That's about how many I had before I changed to what I currently use.

As for the guests getting away with the spam, I think the main reason might have something to do with them being spam-bots. I'd be suprised if there was ever an actual person behind those annoying adds.

Also, I didn't mean the maturity remark to be a put-down on you, I was actually trying to compliment you on how you handled yourself. That is unless you were joking, it's kind of hard for me to tell the subtext of people when they leave messages online.

One last note though, a question really: What made you want to create a nation that is past-tech? Is it a love of history or just for fun?

That was a joke too. As in omg i pwn ur maturittie n00bzorz.

And the smiley faces on Every. Single. Ad. probably has something to do with it being a bot too.

Well, at first it was gonna be medeval, then I thought that was way to cliched. I like the Rococo architecture, so I made a nation that is in the Age of Enlightenment and German\Belgian. That eventually contained Dutch too. I wanted to make a German British Empire pretty much, where people still cared for honour more than winning, and where Aristocracy still ruled. Then my culture eventually became Dunmer, but without slaves or being elvish. Xenophobic, distrusting, but...very nice to friends. It's a very complicated culture that would take an enormous post to explain fully, so just know that were xenophobic (Well, we're not afraid of foreigners, we just dislike them), but nice if we know you. And we would rather lose a duel and die than lose a duel and live.
