No it's some guy named Cheat. To be honest, he doesn't have much of a reputation (in other words not many people have seen him around on B.old). He seems pretty competent though, the site looks amazing.
I go by Cheatlancer everywhere but here (since Cheat's always taken). I've been a part of Bnet since...well, since Halo 3 was released. I never got famous but I was decently active.

That's not going to happen. I am strongly considering giving veteran members an exclusive nameplate, but that'll be later on.

News / We need Mods
« on: July 27, 2014, 08:04:30 PM »
I had no idea that this forum would be such a hit. I am mildly overwhelmed and am in need of some mods to keep the peace. I realize that we don't really have a formal 'rules' thread up yet, but that's next on my very long list.

Now, I wasn't really around much in the other offsite forum. I mostly lurked near the end of its life. But I do understand that there was some sort of horrible shit that went down with the mods and a few members. I don't give a shit about that. I care about the here and now and what goes on in this forum.

So I think the fairest way to do this is to nominate members for mod status. Right now we only need about two of them, but that may change down the road. So please either comment here with someone's name or send me a PM. Later on tonight I'll set up a poll and you can vote on it.

Is that cool with you guys?

EDIT: nevermind, I just saw the thread that was created. Go here and nominate:

I also think we should be able to like/dislike posts.
This. This is the first new feature that Cheatlancer should work on. But no rush. It's a fucking hassle to code an entirely new website. I would offer to help, but I have no coding experience at all, haha
Should be pretty simple, actually. I'll put it on my list of things I need to do.

I'd like it if the forum were bigger and didn't leave so much space on the sides.
Eh, I disagree. The slimmer style is better for mobile.
It's responsive, so it'll adjust to whatever device you're using. Try it for yourself and shrink your window.
Maybe these rules aside from religion, politics, and a few other

And add a forum dedicated towards the discussion of politics and religion so it doesn't clutter The Flood forum
This will probably happen as well.

News / Signatures are live for testing
« on: July 27, 2014, 06:54:24 PM »
I just finished coding the signatures; you may find them familiar ;). To see them, click on a user's name or that snazzy arrow to the left of it. To close the sig, click the arrow or the name again.

To add/edit a signature, go to your profile >> forum profile >> edit signature. Bold, italic, strikethrough, underline, and urls are allowed. Everything else isn't. That means no images.

Remember, this is still very much fresh code and there may be bugs. Please report them here or in the support forum. Thanks very much.

The Flood / The second offsite forum got taken down

I'm laughing on the inside right now. The second offsite flood forum the community set up just got shredded by proboards. Check it out:

The Flood / What do you want out of this?
« on: July 27, 2014, 06:46:35 PM »
I think this is a pretty good way to kick off the pre-pre-release of the forums, so I'm asking you: What do you want out of this forum?

What kinds of different forums do you want? Are the ones we have enough? What about the sort of rules you want to abide by? We're not bound down by Proboards' own rules, so we could do pretty much anything.

Post here and let us know. I'm not saying everything will get added or updated -- this isn't anarchists anonymous -- but it's a damn good way to get your ideas heard.

Check it again. If it doesn't work, do a hard refresh. Let me know if it is still happening.

EDIT: You know what, I just checked your profile out and it may have been the test nameplate you selected. I'll look into this.

The Flood forum comes up as a notification as missing or off limits. Logged out and could see it. Logged back in and still get the notification
Could you screenshot it for me? I'm not seeing this on my end.

The Flood / Re: Should we tell people about this?

Please do, so long as it's explained that we're still in alpha and are probably a bit buggy.

You may embed now.

We'll need mods soon if this place doesn't tank, so keep a look out.

Also, thanks for joining up! ;)

Does that one still have the hammer of dawn (I think that's what it's called)?

I loved that in the first game.

Are you paying for this site to be hosted? And does it have ads on it to support the server costs? If so, I will disable my adblock for this whole site.
I'm a web designer by trade, so I already pay for hosting. There aren't any ads up yet, but if this takes off I might need to put one up to help the server load.

Since the trailer for season 5 of The Walking Dead just came out and lead me to this song, I feel the need to share it. I am in love with it at the moment.

By the way, is there to have videos embedded in your posts? I see the icon for embedding an image, but not a video.
I'll put that on the to do list. ;)

Septagon / Re: Match the background with the forum bar
« on: July 27, 2014, 04:16:46 PM »
Would it be possible to match the background color with the color of the forum? Like right now its purple on the bar and the background is blue. Could you make it so that it is purple on the background as well?

Is that possible?
That's possible, but I'm not sure how well it would work. Red is pretty harsh in large quantities.

You should make admins have gold text.
We're considering it, for sure. The hard part is picking colors that don't kill your eyes.
are mods still orange? And are they called ninjas?
Yes. And yes. :)

Gaming / Anyone here play Pokemon?
« on: July 27, 2014, 03:18:32 PM »
I just recently bought a 3DS and got Pokemon Y, and man is it sort of addicting. The newer games aren't nearly as difficult to play through as the previous gens (1 through 4, I mean), but the online trading and battling is way better than on the DS games.

So I suppose if you'd like to trade or battle, post your friend code on here. I'll put mine up later when I have time.

I've posted there and left a comment on Bungie, so hopefully we can get a respectable member pool here.

Hover over your name in the nav bar, go to forum profile, then select whatever avatar option you'd like.

I'll look into it. It's not showing up in Firefox; what browser are you using?

The forum is very close to being complete, but we know it's still a bit unstable. That's what you're here for!

So register, take a look around, poke and prod at everything. You can report bugs here or in the support forum as its own thread. Both are fine.

Also, since we're in the early stages of the forum's life cycle, there isn't a set rulebook yet. That'll be added in later, so for now I suggest that you use your best judgement when creating a thread. I haven't tested out these cool ban powers yet, but I'd be willing to give it a try if bad shit goes down. ;)

Edit: signatures are currently disabled, but will soon be activated and moved to the familiar text-only, dropdown sigs from the old Bnet.
