    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    how is this subsection organized? do u guys have to get setups approved before signups?

    there should be a split subforum for this sub to organize signups in and another for game threads

    Start using proper English and punctuation or you're not going to last.

    It's a site requirement. Proper capitalization is also appreciated. If you have questions about the mafia subforum, feel free to pm me.

    Understandable. As long as it's clear that you're trying, you should be fine.

    Bloody hell dude. The point is that if you are capable of using proper English, then effing use proper English. Making a sincere effort in that arena is a site requirement.

    You just admitted you're capable of it, so make an effort.

    I feel bad for encouraging you. /shame

    ...

    You are on a site primarily devoted to writing. If it's too painful to put a bit of effort into your posts, then you're in the wrong place.

    Last I checked Mafia is still part of the forums as a whole.

    I will stick purely to discussion and mafia. See how easy it is? Now be a dear and use proper punctuation. Not doing so annoys almost everyone.

    Once upon a time there was a man, who wandered from place to place. Upon arriving in a new town, he walked the streets and every person that he met, he raised his middle finger to. When angrily challenged about this slight, the man simply replied that this was merely his custom and convention.

    He was taken to the great hickory stump, where lived the elder of the town, who politely explained that this was not a seemly action in this place and might cause offense.

    'No,' protested the newcomer, repeating the gesture. 'This is how I have always behaved. I shall continue to do so.'

    The elder considered this for a moment, and nodded thoughtfully. Having decided upon a solution, he bade the man place his hands upon the great hickory stump. The moment that he did so, the elder took up his great axe and sliced through the man's arms at the wrist.

    Problem solved.

    Let me be as clear as possible.

    Fix your shit and adhere to the customs of the forum or leave. I won't ban you but there are other Moderators and Admins who wouldn't hesitate considering you aren't willing to even attempt to follow the rules.

    since we're making outrageous comparisons, is this situation not similar to thehomophobia that everyone hates?

    a person's different, won't change, gets ganged up on by the majority

    yeah, attempting to make that comparison would definitely get me de-repped and laughed at.

    im not trying to be antagonistic to any1 here in any way

    if my behavior is really so unacceptable that the higher ups will show me to the door, then i will respect their decision and leave
