Back when I would cruise the forums, Lizard Dude would Rick-roll people, and it was funny as heck.  Also, I had no idea about Advice Dog making history before my very eyes.  That was just another fun thread in a sea of many.

I've changed a lot since then, such that I probably won't be accepted here now.
Well?  Bring it on!  I definitely remember you, by the way--but until I saw Luigison's avatar, I had you filed incorrectly.

... So nobody change your avatar!  Also, my avatar is pretty sweet, if I do say so myself.  By the way, Luigison, I still have that epic stylus.  Regular toothpick styli don't even compare.

Setting aside the goods that Lizard Dude has brought to the table, this is an excellent question, and I dig the philosophical implications of its answer.

Ask somebody to write their name in the air using a finger.  There are generally two types of responses:  They either write oriented towards themselves, so that they can read it--or they write oriented towards the viewer.  Some people claim that the latter response indicates a more considerate personality.  I don't buy that, though, because I have known a few really inconsiderate people who readily pass petty tests like these.

On the other hand, if someone uses another person's finger to write, they are probably a psychopath.

I will forever remain torn concerning the world names.  On the one hand, the earlier version's are pretty creative.  On the other hand, suffixing them all with "land" really ties up the game with a nice, Mario ribbon.  The main site has a nice write-up, of course.

Well, I can't say I'm disappointed, as the dream is still clearly alive--unless some of you are holding back secrets.

I think a marriage pact of sorts is long overdue.  If no staff members are married five years from now, we start drawing lots.  I'll even bake the cake from SM64's ending screen.

These forums have held up incredibly well over time.  Many features (like post statistics, for example) offer even more luxury than what you would find in a bloated boat full of JavaScript.  Every page is fast and responsive, too.

You were always here, in my heart.

C'mon, MJ.  Now's not the time to turn off your sarcasm meter!

And the Powerpoint comes after the internet petition (hosted at Geocites).

Yeah, I'm sorry about that... It would've helped to have been more concrete.

The message we send should explain the problem in a straightforward, non-hostile manner--that free speech is being limited on the forums and members are concerned.  (Links could be provided.)  It should not ask the staff whether they are aware of the problem but rather ask for a reply, ideally in this topic, that shows they have acknowledged our message.  Other than that, it'd probably best to sum up the opinions expressed here by various members.  Include a quote or two, or mention that members are leaving in protest if you like--just as long as it's written fairly and expresses the collective views of this topic.

As said, a hostile tone should be avoided, so if you're going to mention members leaving, please don't make it sound like a threat.  Anyway, thank you for offering to write this.  I'd do it myself, but the result would probably be too biased.  Besides, the more people work together, the better.  So, thank you.

EDIT:  ShadowBrain's in.

Reading the thread title suddenly gave me the urge to watch Full House--which is still being broadcast in my neck of the woods... So, I guess I'll try and watch that--unless the urge subsides, then I'll be left with nothing.

I voted for SMRPG and pushed it forward to a huge lead of 66.7%.

Hi again, everyone.

Some new information has surfaced, leading me to wonder if this problem isn't entirely as big as originally perceived.  It seems members who normally maintain contact with Deezer and MEGAߥTE (and other staff) have not seen them since sometime before the creation of this topic.  In light of this, it seems more likely that staff members have simply yet to be made aware of the problem.

As previously mentioned, until we have confirmed key staff members' awareness of the situation, please do not leave the Fungi Forums.  Though it is your freedom to do so, and I will acknowledge and keep track of your absence--please understand that it really does no good at this point.  If, however, we receive word directly from staff that goes against free speech, let us reconsider.

The first step towards awareness is the PM.  MushroomJunkie, have you written it yet?  The task is still up for grabs; if nobody has posted a workable PM within 24 hours, I'll compose one myself and ask for input here.  We can begin rounding up a list of signatures in the meantime.  So... if you stand for free speech, and you trust others who also stand for free speech to accurately communicate your beliefs in the PM we will compose, please say something to that effect now.  We will add your name.  You may, of course, also wait until seeing and agreeing upon the beliefs laid out in the PM once it is finalized.

Glorb, Eclipsed Moon, and Lizard Dude should have their names added as well--not in support of the PM but in recognition of their absence.  If communication with any of these members through alternative outlets can be achieved, we may also add their names to the "in support of" section.

Next, I would like to thank everyone who has contacted me through private messaging or otherwise.  Your information has greatly contributed to the organization of this cause.

And lastly, it would make sense at this point to make a request for the moderator who locked the TMK Votes thread in General Chat to make his or herself known.  Please either reply to this thread or send a PM my way.  In the case of the latter, I will keep our communications under my hat.

Thank you again.

Thanks, MJ.  I knew your custom rank was right when it said you were serious.

Haha, in this topic Chup gets confused because he is a computer.

Or "The police arrested a man! How random!"
But what if that man were arrested for beating people with sausage?
