From the Admin

► Due to inactivity, the specific German and Scandinavian forums have been removed.

► For the same reason, the ACH forum has been removed. Its posts are now found in the EE forum.

► The special ranks have been removed. The system of awarding these ranks hadn't really been working for quite some time, so in effect most of the ranks had become unattainable, which went directly against their intended purpose.

Due to hosting issues, I have had to trim the forum down. All posts older than 5 years have been removed, as well as several game threads.
We will also be looking to institute post pruning and/or a server move in the future, to avoid further downtime.

As a follow up, the 'Everything Else' forum has now been set to auto-prune. Anything inactive for over a year will be automatically deleted. (Except for announcements and stickies.)

This will hopefully be the only forum that needs to be set to auto-prune.

From the Admin

► The Other Languages forum has been removed due to inactivity and other reasons.

► We now have a new forum: Language Learning & Non-English, where the focus is on learning, practicing and discussing in languages other than English. The goal is to incorporate the spirit of the Other Languages forum into the main section of the board, and to encourage the use and the sharing of other languages.

You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.
