    Thanks to lord Jim of Rossignol for adding the Tribes subforum. Much appreciated from the Shazboters around here!

    ...now how the hell do we use this?

    No idea if this has been discussed in the past, but could we get user profiles to not be indexed by search engines? I.E., RPS forum profiles wouldn't show up in search results. This may be a major change for some users (ideally vbulletin would allow it as a per-user configurable setting, but oh well), but I for one would greatly prefer it. Linked below, a quick discussion of doing this with vbulletin.

    What's up with not being able to make a thread?

    You need to make a certain number of posts (10, I think) before you'll be allowed to start a new thread. Nothing personal, but there have been some problems- to put it lightly- with spammers in the past.
    I take photos of space and talk about it sometimes: http://ofspaceandthings.tumblr.com Also, I am making a game for which there is a development log: http://elegythegame.tumblr.com/

    Personally, I'd err on the side of inclusion and let folks shill, because ignoring one thread a day is far less destructive than scaring off potential new posters.
    Hi, I'm new and joined to talk about a specific game but I can't start the thread to do it and I didn't notice anything telling me that there was a post limit, I just assumed. Hoping this will count towards my total and I can one day add something new.

    Well, that's my secret until I can gather enough posts to start a thread on it :p

    BTW, this is totally not spam or anything, but does anybody want to buy some cheap Viagra? Guaranteed legit!*

    So to combat spam you encourage people to spam first before they can talk about what they want to talk about. Interesting.

    Yeah well, it is better then your topic being drowned out by the 50+ spam topics that take up the first two pages.

    I guessed as much but there could be something up in the Main Rules fora that would say something to this effect, maybe? Otherwise it is just a bit confusing, because nothing indicates what actually needs to be done. :)

    Also, quite possibly there could be a generic sticky topic in the Tech Area for small questions that are not meant to develop into a full discussion but rather should have a short answer? Seems like it could stop a number of "small" topics coming up probably every now and then (say is A better than B if I have x to spend).

    Or, y'know, they expect fans of computer games to have interests in things beyond the sole item they want to post a new thread about.

    Unfortunately I find that the majority of my favourite games are not well represented here (SOASE and TW series)...

    You can easily get 10 posts in a few minutes arguing about RPGs with us. Try it. We like new blood.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    The ten post thing is really annoying, I think. But I don't have ten posts yet.

    We just like blood. If you want to keep people happy never say that a game is an RPG, just say it has RPG-like elements. And then downplay it.

    ... Is Borderlands well known for having RPG-like elements (in the random gun loot dropper)?

    Ho ho ho ha ha ha RPG-as-rocket-propelled-grenade pun!

    I've been wondering, are the old RPS forums still accessible? The first time I came here I could still view the contents, in the other Feedback thread someone mentioned http://rockpapershotgun.com/rpsforum/, but this generates a 404 error now... Are they gone for good? Or viewable somewhere else?

    I'm not really looking for something specific, it's just the "Internet history, must be archived... cannot be lost!" kind of feel... ;-)
