    Oh, I have plenty of "prestigious titles". And I was not the one that was complaining.

    I get the concern. The decision will shape the purpose of the Royal Lounge. Is it a place for long time players to avoid trolling or is a place for people who tossed some cash at the site? Is it a cool kids club? Maybe the answer is to have multiple lounges. I'm assuming once the hurdle has been cleared to set up the first one, it will be easy to set up another? If so then maybe try a few options to see where people want to go?

    The point of the Royal lounge is to reward those who have contributed to this community by what they would most likely want to see from this website - the freedom to do and say what they want.

    The "cool kids" have private rooms for their cliques.

    I thought it was being put in place as way to discuss in game mechanics away from prying eyes. Not just another drama subforum. I guess I was mistaken.

    It's both really, while the overall philosophy or intent of the forum is what I said above, it will hopefully have many different forms of content

    The OP states what I stated. It does not state it will be just another drama subforum. That is why we have the 19 subforum.

    It'll end up being whatever people make of it, with the exception of spam as long as it won't get the website in trouble with the wrong people, or attract the wrong kind of attention it's pretty much hands off for the administration.

    You might even find staff members participating in banter or other forms of content.

    So an FFA section?
    I sure hope you all know what you are getting yourself into considering the maturity level of some of this site's membership.
    Remember, maturity does not necessarily equate to age.

    This shall be something very very interesting to observe to see how some people conduct themselves unabated. Interesting indeed...

    You can derive what one can reasonably expect from such a forum based on what the stated use would likely be. In no way did he imply its sole purpose would be for game mechanics discussion. Stop selectively reading.

    This is important to me, people should keep in mind the original forum was only for donors, now it will be accessible threw a number of options, that way we are not forcing people to pay for freedom of speech, there are numerous other ways to gain access.

    I've put careful thought into it, I've been around the block and have seen the best and the worst this community has to offer. It'll be interesting indeed.

    Not only will it spur new activity, and give the users more content to enjoy, but it will also be a great source of income for the website. We have not spent a penny of the website donations, we've been saving it up, however the past two months of activity have not been great when it comes to the revenue we generate. I'd prefer to keep saving money for the website so we can eventually do something great with it, rather than chipping away at our savings so we can keep the website online.

    This is a win/win situation for everyone, while some may disagree on some of the specifics, I believe the majority of users will enjoy it regardless.

    That is what I was stating. XPoff is expanding a feature that was formerly a pay only feature. Expanding it to members that have not paid, the administration has kindly given some of the membership privileges to the feature without paying.
    And people are still unhappy. This just proves that you can't make everyone happy all the time.
    Everyone should remember, the added feature can just as easily be removed as it can be addded.

    The SPE was a grand study of psychological effects. It is part of psych 101 at the Marines officer Academy.

    How can you possibly "hate" someone you don't know?

    I know you.

    You're a middle-aged man who spend time stroking your ego by argueing with people on this Forum. However you'll never concede, even if you clearly know you're wrong. You won't move your mindset.

    In short, you're ignorant.

    And to add to that, you're clearly Christian or Catholic.
