    Besides, with the demographic of this forum, how many memberships do you expect to get? Everyone is either still in high school without a job, or in college/university with no money to spare, or a cheap skate, like myself.

    Also premium membership should make you immune to AIDS.

    You know you can just say you don't like me and not insult me, right?

    Wut? What makes you think I'll not grant modship to Jubeh or Hammie here as well? The only reason they're not mods here right now is because Jubeh declined stating that he wanted to stick to the other forum and Hammie was still thinking it over.

    The problem with the old site and forum is that it's separate. As much as possible, I would like to keep the community together with one log in for all areas as much as possible. Yes, polls are funny sometimes. The rest of the time, they're not. Including the one's I've been making.

    Regarding membership - I have never expected to make money out of it at all. I know the demographic and it is as you say. My aim with the site change was actually to get lots of free members on board and entice lurkers and old members to sign up which, so far, seems to be working.

    I'll make you immune to AIDS without premium membership - but I don't think you'll like what needs to be done.

    If you end up closing the old forum - and I hope you don't - will the word filter be disabled? A lot of DnD - and I'm sure other people's writings - will become unreadable nonsense when nearly every other word is reduced to "Silly Goose" and if we can't log in to the forum then there's no way we can simply disable it.

    Um, I don't even think I have to say it. But if you're going to be a prissy little bitch about it, then sure.
    Don't like you, mate. Big deal, you'll live. Still going to insult you, though.

    Oh, no no. I was just saying. It would still be funny as hell, though.

    Okay, yeah, fair enough. Thanks for the clarification.

    That's because so many people aren't funny.

    Yeah, fair enough. Twas just a suspicion.

    Does it involve sex?

    I voted "keep," not cause I'm against this forum changing...but I'm just concerned with some of the writers over on the other forum. I know what it's like to lose a lot of hard work, and it's really not possible to remember everything you've written to do it over, once it's lost. So I guess my vote is just whatever's best for both communities.

    As for me, I don't really care if this one upgrades to vBulletin or not...I don't know what it is, but I'll learn quick enough. It's always good to learn new things.

    I'll disable the word filter once I close it down. It's fair as you all did so much hard work.

    Yeah, it changed again. Hopefully everyone will be happy with this version. Personally, I'm glad to see the "View First Unread Message" again! It just makes things sooooo much easier!
