I am here to officially resign from my position as moderator. It has been a while since I last came here and I do not intend to return. I think it would be better if someone more active were to take my place. Also, I find the politics of this place rather annoying. It's quite infuriating how all that ever happens is we argue and nothing ever gets done.

Bye,
shpeters

shpeters now has the retired  moderator rank.
thanks shpeters for all your help in making the TBGs the success they are now.
we will miss you

Thank you
The TBG moderators And Admins.

Your favourite website, the TBGs needs funds for web hosting! In less than a month's time, we will be receiving an invoice telling us to pay for another year of hosting.

So if possible, please donate to this website by clicking the Support button on the top navbar and then clicking the Donate button. This will help keep the TBGs online for another year.

Even a donation of $5 or less can help. Thanks everyone! smile

Due to unforeseen circumstances, it is recommended that all users change their passwords on this site, as well as on any others where the same password is used. Users' passwords have likely not yet been compromised, but haste is suggested in trying to fix the problem.

Registrations will be temporarily disabled until future notice. We have received extremely high numbers of spam account making, and banning perpetrators has not solved the problem. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Re: Announcements.

6 Aug 2014

The chat/shoutbox has completed trialling and is now available on a separate page. Click the 'Chat' link on the floating navbar to access it.

Breaking the guidelines on the chat is the same as breaking the guidelines on the forum. If you see someone posting something inappropriate, take a screenshot and report it to the mods. You can do this by emailing any member of the TBG Team. We will then look through the chat logs to find the offender either warn him or ban him.

Why not keep the chat on the index of the forums? Two reasons.

1. The index should kept as tidy as possible.
2. The chat was slowing down pageloads of the index.

As long as the chat is used responsibly by the members of this website, it will stay up, barring any technical issues we may have. If the chat is abused, it will be removed immediately.

Thanks,
jji7skyline

Re: Announcements.

The survey has finished, and the new date format for the TBGs have immediately been applied. The new format for dates is 21 Aug 2014, and it applies across the TBGs.

Please note that you can change your personal date settings to display them in nearly any other format you wish.

Thanks,

After hours of hard work, GeonoTron has finally finished the Announcements plugin for the TBGs website! This plugin will allow any administrator to easily post an announcement to the front page along with this a post in this topic. It will really make it easier for the moderation team.

Therefore, we would like to thank GT for his efforts, and if you like you can check out this website at thegt.org. I'm sure he'd appreciate it!

Thanks,
jji7skyline

Re: Announcements.

18 Oct 2016

Due to several users posting things repeatedly in the chat, some new rules have been made for posting things of a specific topic (i.e, fandoms):

1. Keep it appropriate
2. Don't spam
3. Stop when people say "no"

Rule 1 should try to be adhered to as strictly as possible, but accidents happen.
Rule 2 is somewhat ambiguous, but basically don't keep copy-pasting the same message over and over.
Rule 3 is self-explanatory.

These new rules affect anyone for anything, although as long as other users are OK with it, you should be fine.

Re: Announcements.

14 July 2017

The TBG Forums have been online now for over 4 years. Originally we were using a free hosting service along with a free domain. But the website grew. Soon we needed more bandwidth, more storage, and a more reliable domain name for our web address to secure our spot on the internet.

We are now running on a paid hybrid hosting service which guarantees us excellent bandwidth, reliability, uptime and enough storage for the over 300,000 posts that have accumulated over the years. We also rent the top level domain name "tbgforums.com".

Unfortunately, running a website like this costs money. So how do other websites fund themselves? They use things like premium membership, donations, referral links, sponsorships, etc. By far the most common way of monetising a website these days is using Advertising.

Adding advertising to the TBG Forums is the last thing I want to do, however paying out of my own pocket every year to keep this website, can be expensive, especially as the website continues to grow.

What can you do to help? I've posted a new topic which contains all the information you need to contribute some funds to help keep this website alive. The good news is that it may not even cost you anything at all to help out. Interested? Follow the link below to find out more.

Re: Announcements.

10 October 2017
Repeat after me: Announcements! big_smile
Thanks.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

Here are some clarifications of the Community Guidelines Rule 2e: "Any text, images or links you post must be appropriate for all ages."

  1. Fade-to-black scenes are officially deemed as NSFW (Not Safe For Work, the term commonly used for 18+ stuff on the internet) by moderators and the TBG Team.  This term heavily implies that NSFW content is allowed as long as it isn't explicitly shown.  Therefore, because those scenes are not appropriate for all ages, they may not be posted on the TBG Forums.

    Please note that we are not completely banning anything that slightly crosses the "all ages" border.  That, however, will still result in warnings should you post content of the manner.

  2. The use of censored swears is not allowed.  Although it is a much better alternative to the actual swear, it does not do much to solve the issue - the cutting off of single words makes it more likely that another user can make it out easily, which goes against the definition of the all-ages rule.

  • These clarified rules shall take place immediately for any posts made after this announcement; no action shall be taken to users who have made the offense previously before this has been announced.

  • As always, please report any new posts that violate this rule.

Thank you for your cooperation.
On behalf of the TBG Admins,
DGC


+++ PLEASE REPORT CONTENT NOT ABIDING TO COMMUNITY GUIDELINES +++
You guys should know this already.  We may not moderate all the areas on time, but that doesn't give the excuse of not reporting anything and not letting any of us know.
Well, has anyone bothered to report it? If no one reports it, it's more like you guys are letting the problem slide, hmm?       -cheddargirl
