Older members will remember "The Noose." This is the same basic concept, but with less meanness.
For you new guys, the idea here is simple. Whenever a member gets banned, there will be a post made here with the members name, a link to the offending post, and when they will be unbanned. When that persons ban expires, the post in here gets deleted.
This way, whenever someone gets sent away, you guys can just check here instead of wondering why X person was banned.
Just some general disclaimers:
- Unlike the original Noose, the idea here is not to add one more layer to a persons punishment. This is not a "Wall of Shame." This thread is only here for informational purposes. Once your ban has expired, the post about your ban will be deleted.
- Permanent bans will be displayed here for a bit longer, but they too will go away after a while.
- If you notice that a persons account shows as banned, but the duration of the ban has passed, please let us know. The forum software is supposed to unban people automatically, but it acts funny sometimes and doesn't do it, so we don't always notice.
- As always, if you feel you have been banned unjustly, you're welcome to email the mod who banned you and make your case. Our emails are in the stickied Rules thread.
If you have any questions or complaints, feel free to send me a PM.

The Rules: Follow Them or Die
#1: Common Decency is the basic law of the land. This means no excessive flaming, carrying on petty vendettas, cross-forum/website drama, trolling, or any other childish behavior Exactly what constitutes a violation will be judged on a case-by-case basis, but if "Common Decency" is a tough concept for you to grasp, you aren't welcome here.
#2: "Official" threads can only be created by moderators / admins, unless prior permission is granted. Any unauthorized "Official" threads will be locked and/or deleted.
#3: No homework threads / posts. We're not going to do your research for you.
#4: Do not necro dead threads. A thread is considered dead when it has not had a reply for more than 14 days. The exception to this rule is if you're posting an update to the original post.
#5: If something is NSFW, CLEARLY MARK IT AS SUCH. There is no such thing as too much warning. If something is excessively NSFW, ask a mod before posting.
#6: Threads with the "DEBATE" tag will be held to stricter standards of conduct than normal threads. If you can't debate like a grownup, take your ball and go home. (Hell Fury will be adding the specific rules shortly)
#7: The Moderators Are Not Your Personal Army. Threatening to report someone / involve the mods in some way will bring our wrath upon you. We are spiteful beings. If someone is breaking the rules, just use the report button; the report system is VASTLY improved over the old forums.
#8: Game / list threads are allowed now; however, games that revolve around post counts / who posts next / last / etc are forbidden. "The last person to post wins!", "The person below me is ___", etc are examples of bad games.
#9: Rape jokes can act as a trauma trigger for individuals sensitive to the matter. Rape jokes are allowed but must be placed within spoiler tags and a warning must be given because a user cannot know if spoiler tags are blocking a rape joke or a spoiler without a content warning. Below is an example of correct usage of the spoiler tag for a rape joke (minus the rape joke). [rule added by Hell Fury]
Warning: Rape joke ahead.
Warning: Rape joke ahead. [spoiler]hello![/spoiler]
Contacting a Mod / Ban Appeals
If you feel that you've been banned unfairly or as a result of a misunderstanding, you're welcome to appeal your ban via e-mail (making a second account is not the answer). If you're appealing a ban, please be sure to include your username and a link to the post / thread that you were banned for.
If you have any other questions and for whatever reason you can't PM a mod, e-mail is your friend.
Our emails are:
- Hell Fury: [email protected]
- Golden Helmet: [email protected]
- Angelsea: [email protected]

Lots of people have been asking questions about builds or problems they're having in my build a computer thread. Rather than keep that going (because not everyone will see the questions there), I'm going to open this thread. It's an official thread so after a couple of days I will sticky it. I'm leaving it unstuck for now so people see it.
Ask anything you want from build advice to troubleshooting. This is not the thread for new discoveries or talking about random networking/programming theory, though. If it's "which is better" or "I'm having X problem" it's okay. Otherwise make your own thread.

This is now the official All Things Avatar thread. All other threads with Korra in the title were locked.
To start things off, I think we should all talk about what our favorite bending styles are and who our favorite benders are. Explain your reasons if possible (bending style, technique, etc).
My favorite style is Earth bending. Fire bending is just cliche since even other fantasy stories use fire abilities. Water is okay and can be pretty cool with blood and ice bending but is overall a more healing and passive style. Air is a close, close second to Earth bending just because I think it's scary as shit that you can't actually see the air as its being bent.
Toph is my favorite bender. Why? Because Toph.
Edit: Forgot to say why I actually liked Earth bending. I like them because they have the most varied styles. They have Earth, Sand, Metal, and Lava. They're strong, they're steadfast, and I like their bending art the most. Except for Bolin's. I think he is very clunky with his bending.
