I tried clicking on that link, but it just said "You are not authorised to read this forum." Also "authorized" is misspelled.
That's because the link I gave you is a direct link to the mod lounge. Only moderators can access it though. I kinda wish it was a relaxing place like a bar where the mods could go and just chill, but its just work and systems in place that help us

Sweet. I'll look into removing it. I had no idea either, but might as well do some house cleaning.

Yes! It actually will. See the forums operate on activity, and series of codes and programming that I don't really understand, but you get my point. Activity is what drives a forum forward. Activity is based on people who are present and if the content/conversation is good. We could have some 30 people on at a time, but unless something good is going on, they aren't going to post.
So how can your posting help? Well, it generates that activity and can directly or indirectly cause that content to be made. You may have noticed this, or will notice this, but most people join for the comics but they don't stay for the comics, but the people they meet and the other stuff that happens here that causes them to stay at Snafu. My theory and one of the driving points that I like to ride around on, is that the activity of the members of the site is what is causes it to grow and to stay healthy. The other point involves telling other people about Snafu and getting them to join as well, but activity is the key.
Questions are totally fine and encouraged.

Ehh... I've gotten quite a few in the last couple of days.

Actually, yes. But for a completely different reason and it would be only for me.
