Oh you are not the first one to see this, and in fact this is not my first time to reply to this question. Actually I stopped counting.  wink

Let me quote myself instead about that.:

More time than he already spends here with banning and unbanning idiots, deleting spam, and fixing bugs and errors in the database. In short, why should it be changed? It is just a link to an episode thread and a poll about it. Something regulars, like you want to be, can easily look over and ignore.

To summarize it... it has been that way since years, and it won't change.  smile

So, it is sort of a tradition, like the mistake in General Disscussion?

What do you mean with "starting to ruin"?

PEEL did fine with that over 5 and a half years, of course people have been complaining about these names before, but still it never was a problem.

Just because your brother doesn't get the name he wants doesn't ruin the message board. It's not that important, or is your brother?  wink

Like suggested, alternate the name he wanted. Or be a little creative, can't be that hard to do. You managed it as well.  smile

well, you are not the first to have asked for that, like I already said:

ok, just wondering, are "lurkers" people who are reading posts but not signed in or people that arent even members? might be a dumb question but it just crossed my mind.

It could be counted as either. I lurked here for a while before I joined, and looked around even more after.

The lurkers are people who are not regestered on PEEL and (I think) people who are regestered but don't have the remember me for a year cookie enabled and haven't posted yet in this 'intenet session'. This may be false. On another forum it's like this a bit.

Generally, if you are perusing a message board without being logged in, you are lurking. Ergo, you are a lurker.

Lurkers browse, but don't post until they see something worth logging in for. They are among the wisest of folks, and I have some respect for their restraint.

I reload the main page over and over again and it has the red PE logo on each section, though it should show the blue if I reload the page.

Ok, just a quick question that has probably been answered before but I couldn't find it anywhere.  Just by looking at the sheer number of locked threads in this list I was thinking is there any that you can keep certain people from posting NEW topics.  Like, they have to be a starship captain or something before they can start new topics, they could still post on existing threads but not start new topics.  I've enjoyed posting here on peel and i think iv'e only started two topics total, if my memory serves me right, and I wouldn't mind not being able to start new topics, there are topics for basically everything you can think of already so i think it would help keep some people, i wont name any names...from starting stupid topics that will get locked and mess up the board anyway.

We do take you seriously, but you don't want to agree with this message board's policy and rules.

Let me try to explain it once more:

This message board - PEELified.com - and its older members have laid down rules about how to behave here and what to do, so that we all can get along well with each other. These rules need to be followed, since this message board had, and somehow still has problems concerning bandwidth and usage of space.
There fore members agreed on cutting down redundancies in threads and general spamming. That means for you that you shouldn't open new threads if there is obviously an old one existing.
So please search everytime you got an idea for a new thread before you even click the link for a new pool or thread.

As long as you don't follow that, every attempt you make will be closed. I even predict that not long to go you will get some official warning to a ban - which will exclude you from this forum.

Believe me, it is easier for you to stretch to these rules than the whole message board stretching just for you. Rules have worked for years now and they will go on doing so, until someone in charge lays down new ones.

To remind you: we are only bullying those guys that won't even understand us after the 10th time we told them how to behave here.

And to give you another chance, go take a look at our guidebook: The PEELers' FAQ.

@DeltaP42: We have talked about it last year, and from what I know it is a topic that comes up at least once a year. The problem is that most newbs just come in to ask one question (prefered is "Will it come back?" ) wait for a reply and either start to bitch about it, or leave again. Restricting new members from starting threads at all would prevents them on doing so of course, but that also means that we won't have new members anymore.
It would perhaps be easier if there would be the option of a "sticked thread" for newbs, but as we all know that isn't possible

Its not bullying, its how PEEL is, people tell it like it is and u need to get to know people so u can understand why it is. Dr.Thunder was just saying what he says to everyone.
