Just to let you know, I've changed the purge rate so that now topics in certain forums close faster than in others.

The time in months is as follows:

Site Help and Suggestions - 6
General - 6
Fandom - 6
Fan Fiction - 6
Fan Art - 6
Non-Spyro - 6
Idle Chatter - 2
Video Gaming - 6
Stuff and Nonsense - 1
Role Play - 4
Forum Games - 4
The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night - 6
The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon - 5
Spyro the Dragon - 12
Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer / Ripto's Rage - 12
Spyro: Year of the Dragon - 12
Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly - 12
Spyro: A Hero's Tail - 12
The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning - 12
Spyro: Season of Ice - 12
Spyro 2: Season of Flame - 12
Spyro: Adventure / Attack of the Rhynocs - 12
Spyro: Fusion / Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy - 12
Spyro: Shadow Legacy - 12
Spyro - Mobile - 12
Spyro: Ripto Quest - Mobile - 12
Spyro the Dragon - Mobile - 12
The Legend of Spyro 3D - 6

Any boards not mentioned do not have a purge rate.

This should help a bit with the problem of people posting in topics that are dead. Please remember that it is of no real concern for somebody to post in an old topic on a board where there are very few topics.

Those rates do seem much within reason, thanks.

Is it okay that, if a Role Play I create is not much apreciated, that I close it?

I don't get it... It will close 1-12 months after LAST POST or CREATION?

I really don't quite understand it myself... but what if you never finish a topic (example a fan fic.). If it was a fan fic, and i wrote chapter 5 and put in "It edged closer, closer still and then... to be continued" what do i do if it closes?

Bump it really quick and it won't go anywhere.

Here have some mild action.

Like I said/referenced, the admin will automatically get rid of the ghost thread, like Pacman eating the ghost.

Now if only we could do something about user names that STRRRRRRRRETCH the page because they're too long (I know we have a 15 character limit, but it's not enough). <.<;

20 letter limit would be good...

No, no, make it lower! You've got one of those page-stretching names! Make it 10 or something. And give a limit to the number of capital letters. @.@

my one still is, my name is basically xSPYROTHEDRAGONx and I use it EVERYWHERE but here... because of this 15 letter limit
but I cant understand where the problem is... some months ago, shortly after I joined the whole forum page was stretched because of my name and people were annoyed by it so I contacted Dark and he changed the CSS so just my box got stretched now.

I'd prefer if there would be no limitbut I can understand and respect that there's one...

maybe a 16 letter limit?

would fit perfectly x3 but for me it's enough if the name would be displayed a little bit smaller when the length goes over the 15 letter limit

#23 GamingMaster_76 23:41:57 26/01/2010

mine is exactly 15 letters smilie

MAYBE THERE COULD BE A REDUCED TEXT SIZE SMALL ENOUGH FOR 20 LETTERS.

oops, i didnt mean to put that in capitals!

Well, the problem is the pixls on the computer screen sometimes get scrambled as a result of page stretching. xSTDx, you're unfortunately the biggest problem because your user name has 14 capital letters. <.<;

But a smaller font COULD solve the problem. @.@

I've contacted Dark because of that asking if he could maybe decrease the text size of my name... I got no answer yet but I'll wait a little longer cause it could be that he's working on the CSS and I dont want to put any stress on him..

Smaller font for longer/more capitalized members... If thou have problem reading it, just click questbook...

Got an answer from dark today, thought some of you would like to know...

Sorry, the limit isn't going to be changed and username changes aren't allowed either.

And in regard to your other PM about changing font sizes for larger names; the next size down that meaningfully changes the width is practically unreadable, so that's not really an option.
