I just find it strange someone makes an account, but never uses it to share anything, even just a few hellos now and then.

They probably sign up deciding to lurk for a while and use the account to see the new threads.

One way or the other, I'm not sure that they're hurting anything by having a stale account. I know that Mojoeme was stale for years before he popped in and dropped a galaxy guide on us. Such an example would make me hesitant to purge, but 1) it's just a single anecdote out of scores of accounts, and 2) it's not even my call anyway. Smile

OK, but we don't delete accounts just for being strange.

Everyone, please take a moment to read the updated forum descriptions on The Rancor Pit Forums Index. You will find tweaks and clarifications, no major changes.

Please also note the Miniature Games forums section section has been renamed General and there are three forums there. Please check out the three new announcement posts for a little more detail than in the index page descriptions. I think I have addressed everyone's concerns for this area of the site.

Please let me know any questions you have. Thanks.


EDIT: Fixed link.

The remodel looks clean, easy to understand, and meets with my approval (for what that's worth). Kudos.

It'll take some getting used to, but overall, I think it's an improvement.

Thanks for taking the time to reorganize every post.

Your approval and kudos is worth something! Thanks.

You're welcome.

Thanks. I think so too. This forum was created a certain way in 2003 and until now had mostly only built upon the original creation. I appreciate that this will take some getting used to. This forum has existed with very little revision for over 14 years. I am confident you'll get used to the revision, in time.

For the old "The Rancor Pit" forum that used to be near the top of the forums, you're not kidding. The original stated purpose of that forum was to discuss the original Rancor Pit site (archived here). In practice it became a general off-topic forum. It had over 200 threads to go through and relocate, which took me the greater part of my day yesterday. Most of the existing threads in two of the three General forums (General Star Wars and Miscellanea) came from that one misused and abused forum.

That was a useful site. My go-to site for WEG Star Wars, in fact. Can it be restored?

That is unknown at this time. It would be nice because a lot of the links don't work in the archive. I'll let you know when I can.

I, for one, used the dice roller app frequently.

It was fun seeing Loc's crew's longtime characters and ships and such, but didn't really find much use for them.

Been away for a while...

Any chance with the remodel that we can get the ability to post pics directly off our devices (rather than using a host site)?
