Stringently. Wink We're saving those types of details for a little bit later.

What this means is that every post will be pre-moderated, like on the LEGO.com forums, right?

Would I be close in saying that there will be much more severe punishments, and multiple offenses would result in total bannination? That's what I'd guess.

Perhaps when you register, after the "I am over 13" page, it gives you a page with the CoC on it, and you have to agree to it before entering in the user name and such. Confused

Yeah, because people TOTALLY read all the disclaimers and crud when it comes before an "I agree to the terms and conditions" check box that they absolutely have to check before registering.

Oh, wait. No they don't. Razz

I'll let a little detail slip... there's going to be a phone number on the registration page, to Ry's cell phone, and everyone who wants in is going to have to call him personally. He will then quiz you on the rules: if you pass, you're in and Ry approves the account; if you get one wrong, you're permanently banned from the site. I talked to Ace about it and he thinks its the only way to be thorough. Ry missed that part of the meeting though. That's how he got volunteered.

Would people who have already established an understanding of the rules here (i.e. most of our veterans, people who have been here for like 3, 4+ years (obviously for 4+ not here, but other past FBTBs) also have to call Ry?


This is assuming that that wasn't a joke.

Actually, under the new policy, already established members have to call me. I'll shout stupid internet catch-phrases at you, and if you don't immediately respond/laugh awkwardly you're banned.

I think we should leave the forum closed until the move to 3.0, where we have many more security options available to us. What say ye, FBTB?

Fine by me...

And does this imply that the upgrade is forthcoming quite soon? It'd be unfair to cut off registration for too long, methinks...

How about we follow Mafia rules for now? Ie: it takes a member to recruit others into forum.

Maybe open it back up for a final day or two, just to give those last few people a chance to join before its closed for a month or more. Just so there aren't too many unhappy people, and if you do get spam registrations, it wont be to many.

You'd be surprised how many spam members get through in a short time. Given that they're not people, they're just bots, there's no limit to them. From a staff point of view (and one who, luckily enough, doesn't have to process registrations), it's just frustrating to handle. I'm fairly certain the entire staff wants to keep them closed, just so we can spend our time working on the new forum instead of cleaning crap off the doorstep of the old one.

And as for mafia rules... I don't know... we've gotten some of our best members just off random google searches. And some bad ones, like me!

Yeah. It's not exactly best way, but good for new term, which is a little bit better than nothing?

Oh, that's what it meant. I thought it meant that it had a small chance of being allowed, but if it was allowed, it would not be recommended. I guess I was wrong. Smile

What I Said On the Main Page wrote:
I'd like to take this opportunity to say that although there has been talk here about the modifying or complete removal of the RTB policy in the New FBTB, we will *never* condone the posting of confidential information or images on this site.


I guess I have to repeat it because I wasn't clear enough? We've been talking about modifying or completely removing the RTB policy from FBTB. However, images that are clearly confidential will never be posted to the main page or be linked to on the forum, no matter what our RTB policy is -or lack thereof.

I like RTB actually. It's just silly to check out sets that may or may be same or even released, with crappy shots and stuff.

Mike - I get it now.

Iare - I must agree. I can remember back in 2006 when people posted the preliminary images of the Sail Barge and the Star Destroyer. Both looked OK, but it looked out of place. Once the official images came, we all fell in love with them.

It took more than just a minute, but we now have a useful link directly to the chat at the top of the forum, right next to the FAQ button. Big thanks to Jettrooper for his help!

Whoah. So, I look down at the who's online, and I see "Zombie Solo" in yellow. Does this mean Don's an ADMIN?

EDIT: I'm kinda having forum issues. Stuff keeps coming up that says "phpbb error" when I try and enter a thread. It usually takes me two tries. I'm sure glad we're about to move.
