It is a new year, a new decade in fact. So this is a great time to bring in a few changes on how the forum will function.

The first news is that the ban list has been cleared. As long as previous offenders follow the forum rules, then they will enjoy a nice and fruitful posting career.

Second, post approval has been disabled for the UO Atlantic forum. Anyone can have their posts instantly show up once again. Of course this means that there will be a lot more carelessness towards the rules so..............

Third, there is now an official moderation team for the forums. At the moment there are three people; Ngraskel-, Tanis, and Chucko. I will be teaching them to handle the forum moderation as I always have. So there shouldn't be much changes in the way of enforcement. However, with more eyes on the forum it means post reports and other moderation issues will be dealt with much more swiftly.

If you have any questions regarding forum moderation or general issues, you should private message them. If you are concerned with how they handled a situation then you should message me. However, I am not someone to complain to about you getting punished for breaking the rules. If you message me and I find the moderator acted appropriately, then you are likely to be in more trouble.

Happy New Year!

Opps, I disabled the wrong setting. Now you can post without needing approval in the UO Atlantic forum.

I think you forfeit your chance when you quit HOT.

Seriously though, there are plenty of people in HOT who would like to moderate the forum. I'm not taking any applications.

I was actually going to ask that, but I can understand if you want an all-HOT team. Obviously.

Not that I'd even be considered, but hey!
