In the 'browse sections' sidebar, I see a 'new document' button which I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to see. Clicking it brings up an invalid permissions page.

EDIT: Good job with the forum FAQ pages and this page. The help pages do need a boost in visibility.

Feel like the slight rename of the forum and addition of the faq sticky is a nice idea

I still don't think that a lot of users are gonna go read the FAQ page, they'll just make a thread with their question because they're too lazy.
But good idea, i'm definitely gonna check that page out whenever i'm having a problem or want to ask a question.

The system doesn't work like that. A sticky is just special type of forum post.

You'll have to send a message to the developer of whatever game you're talking about.

Yeeeessss...about the Geometry Dash section...
I have found a flaw somehow...and here is what it is.
I'm not scouted. However, I upload audio. I'm able to use two songs for Geometry Dash: GabeN Song (unoriginal) and Pulsar (original). I have recently uploaded Pulsar V2 (original) and SKisM - Rave Review (ak9) (unoriginal). Can't use them. O_O
Can you help me out?

1) You're not scouted, therefore your submissions will NOT work with GD.

2) Do not upload music you did not create.

Uploading music to the Audio Portal is TAKING TOO LONG!! Because of the darn WiFi thing. And this keeps happening today!! So HELP!


When it comes to coolness, it's all about good looks and acts, not being interested in judging others by appearance and personality, and being vicious. Click the sig below.

"Honestly, don't even bother. By the time you are banned from the forums for a long time, every mod and admin knows about your behaviors and nobody is going to take pity on you."

This is unnecessarily harsh, and there have been cases in the past where an account has been hacked and powers abused by the person that stole it. I don't think you should consider an unfair ban impossible to happen. Even without hacking, it can happen.

If someone was simply hacked, we'd probably know it.This addresses long time abusive users usually from day one.

Still, the response could be less misled and harsh. It seems to be an unusually unfriendly tone compared to the rest of the site.

Sounds like a digital version of putting an account's lifeless, severed head up on a pike, as a warning to others. When does a conflict of personality become a form of censorship?

Okay, yeah, I talked to Chronamut lately... but there are younger members still here who should've (almost) been perma-banned like that from the get-go, and saved us all the grief that follows us into today. Is it because younger members can be more easily persuaded into acting correctly? Just curious as to your take on things...

Hold up.

Chronamut's behaviour is as shitty as his personality. Before he was locked out he was urging a user to commit suicide and using the PM system to advertise his chat - despite being told repeatedly to use his newspost and sig only.

This also has nothing to do with the FAQ.

Most of the emphasis I had heard, was placed on the PM's he sent, didn't know about the suicide talk

Fair enough, just wanted an idea of what it takes to get bounced out of here with such finality... a not so frequently asked question, by someone who knows there are some lines you shouldn't cross.
