A special thank you to everyone who has contributed their thoughts and suggestions on recent forum events, it really makes a big difference to myself and the community and you can continue to do so at any time.
I would like to inform you that @Leo_Historias has now been blocked from this forum. This means he can no longer make or reply to topics. Exactly how long that block remains will be reviewed at a later date.
A lot of you have supplied input on some specific rules you think would be valuable, but these are not yet ready to be enacted. A better list of rules will be formalized soon and further public discussion will be done.
In the meantime, I have decided on some temporary rules of threads/posts that are not desired:
- Leo jokes
This was already taken too far and most certainly is not appropriate now.
- Begging threads for newer versions of Messenger, features, etc.
I assume this will be somewhat diminished with Leo’s departure, but please, no more of them.
- Insults to others
Just a reminder that this will not be tolerated.
Please continue to flag any of these I miss and any other threads or posts that do meet the guidelines of “civil conversation”. I know a lot of you are quite witty, and of course humour is still allowed, but please be sure to use the R&R category.
Over the past few weeks, I have been finalizing an upgrade to the newer version of discourse, and this will also make it possible to better stay up-to-date with the latest versions going forward. Among some other features that have been added, this means theme support, including a built-in dark theme. If you are at all interested in making a theme, please let me know.
Also, I am on the lookout for good moderators, but please don’t ask to be one.
A final thank you all for being here and contributing your time, creativity, good humour and love of Messenger. I never expected this forum would balloon into such a vibrant community and I appreciate your help in transforming it into a better place for everyone.
