BATTLE FOR THE FUTURE OF SPAM

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

Yes, period for nominating names is done.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

and as long as the forum's DESCRIPTION remains in tact

Something like:
This is the offopic discussion forum, also previously known as Spam. Different rules apply here. (Title may vary)


Penisland.

www.penisland.net

You dirty bastard.

Then BR gets admin and wants to flip the whole damn place on it's head for no reason.

How does "for poops and giggles" grab you?

Not exactly my reason but whatevs.

Also I agree on the changing the name every month or whatever. I had that idea too. It'll be like giving us something to change other than the talk thread.

That's because you're not a moderator, and haven't seen what we've done to user permissions aside from this display of what you think is just elitism, despite our constant effort to convey that it's supposed to be a reward system to encourage community growth.

And I'm not overhauling this place for no reason. Did you not see the global announcement thread where we disabled registration? That means NO NEW USERS.

You guys should enable a custom CAPTCHA question. Change it once a week or twice a week, just so the botters can't adjust their settings to answer your question. If users can't answer the question (which would be sad), then at least they had the opportunity to join, as opposed to not being able to join at all.

I just realized that this is in fact not a native part of phpBB 2. There are some "enhancement" options you can use to make the CAPTCHA more difficult to read. Are their "Anti Spam" settings in your Admin Control Panel?

There something I feel like I need to say here: this thread is going around in a circle, having Spam as the most votes. Why try to have egg, bacon, spam, and sausage without the spam in it when the polls has got a lot of spam in it? EUGH.

Ridicule me if you want, and seriously, If you still wanted more names and steer away from all this trouble, why not just call this fucking place "The Holy Grail" or fucking "Spamarama"? Oh, and Spamarama comes in a variety of flavors and can be sweet, bitter, sour, salty, etc. PANDEMONIOUS!

It's too bad you've already stopped coming up with names, and I'm just saying that the point is, this isn't going to make any sense even if we've got a name anyway because like the Scarlet Spider, there are some themes you can't really resist sticking to. Maybe "The Flying Circus" could have worked too.

I apologize for sounding mean here; I thought that having Spam as the most votes here might potentially be a big problem here If you're trying to make this forum more positive to non-spam and spam people alike, and I sincerely respect how much you guys care about the forums, and I have faith in your efforts, especially for this jolly place. It just doesn't make any sense if it's something you can't stay away from.

This poll is amazing it's like you guys didn't understand the point at all. Congratulations.

Snark aside: I genuinely think changing the name of the forum would be a low effort and easy change but go a long way to making this place more approachable. I'm not even telling you to change the style of your posting, but you have to admit that more often than not, people not familiar with the forum are going to avoid a section called "Spam".

The name isn't something you really have to stick up for.

I thought the forum name could even rotate on a regular basis. Spam is more lax than most other forums.
