    When can we start?

    People seem to forget this forum went unmoderated for a few years in the beginning. It'll be a breeze.

    That's it then, we're all set to go. Moderators if you'd like to sign out and we'll get started.

    It's not as simple as that, they've got to all get into the crystal chamber and strip their powers away. Logistical nightmare.

    We don't need to sign out, we just need to stop doing any moderating.

    It has begun. And I've already cum in your conch (What's a conch?)

    Man this thread sucks >>>>>>~~~ее
    Go here for a weird old tip on
    Fashion Tiffany Bangles, Good Prices!
    @@@/// Get a big cock in 2 weeks, no BS!

    Go back to an adjacent country you person of foreign origin.

    Your mother sucks cocks in hell.

    You might be gay. Some people find that lifestyle choice unpleasant.

    /titters like a giddy schoolgirlk

    Edit: of course others consider being gay not a lifestyle choice but more of a genetic thing. It would be unfair to discount that theory without proper evidence. So you may or may not be gay for deterministic reasons. But still, you know, ha ha. Get you.

    /Mods why didn't you stop me! I'm a monster without boundaries.

    @THFourteen Man that sounds like a gay porno. Bet you are Lord of the unzipped flies.

    /knew what a conch was all along but pretended not to for comedic effect with limited success.

    Make sure they just contain the word 'Link' and then the link to whichever news story you happen to be reading.

    No mods for three days? Sounds good as generally the interesting threads get locked.

    Fine, Pepsipop.

    If you want to have, like last night, a flood of threads with massive Bioshock Infinite spoilers in the thread titles and the same spoilers posted in all the most recent threads on the forum, you can have them.

    If you like, I'll ruin the game for you now with the massive spoilers, so you can have a sense of how annoying some aspects of visiting the forum would be without moderation.

    For what it's worth, I don't think a spell of no moderation would be a disaster, it's just the internet after all. A fair slice of EG is self-policing, as this thread was sort of discussing yesterday.

    I'm actually in favour of the three days off thing. I'm pretty sure this place would be fine. Mostly.

    Lets do it then. We'd also need a disclaimer that anything that happened during the testing period could not be used as evidence for bans after said test period is over.

    To be fair, most of the things you have to do is less moderation, more cleaning up after the half arsed sign up policy.

    If new accounts had a probation period and couldnt be signed up for with a mailinator account, you would have virtually nothing to do of an evening.

    People who talk about themselves in third person have invariably gone mad with power.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Stop changing the bloody thread title! I don'thave it open the whole day and each time I think "what's this new thread then?" only to end up back in this clusterfuck.

    Oh whilst we're complaining about pedo jokes. The "Zom is a psycho" jokes got old about 3 years back as well.
    The guy can't show his face in the match.com thread or someone will pop in just to shout "...is this after you killed her/wore her skin/..."

    It's fucking annoying and if it was directed at me I'd do my head in. He seems to shrug it off admirably well but I'm sure it's far from funny.
    If he doesn't rise to the bait, so you'd think that makes people stop after a while. Just carrying on that same old "joke" is getting on my tits by now, so surely he must be sick of it already.
    When was the last time anyone said anything to him? It must be months?
    About 6 months ago, which is around the last time I said much in there (not entirely coincidentally). I don't take it personally or get offended by it, but even several years after all the "incidents" (for want of a better word) I pretty much can't say anything in that thread without it happening. I don't mind being the subject of a few jokes, and I'm aware I mostly brought it on myself, but it is really tedious now, it's just the same lines over and over again. If I land myself in another spectacular mess and give everyone cause for some new material, then knock yourselves out, but the old stuff just isn't funny anymore.

    Absolutely, most of it is just cleaning up after this kind of stuff, and is just pressing the 'ignore' button on behalf of the forum for the spam and idiot-registrations. It's almost the opposite of the 'moderation', which as I mentioned yesterday is hardly ever done with that button, it's in PMs, or just not done at all because the mods don't do anything apart from locking the fun threads, etc. etc.

    Spam and crap could certainly be sorted with different sign-up mechanics, but given that it isn't, having people to get rid of it does help to keep the place generally a less annoying place to visit.
