Default So who owns this shindig anyway?

Me and some other highly prestiged members were talking and realized we have no idea who's the head of this forum. Can anyone shed light on the owner?

Yes please!

I know MT isn't the owner anymore and for awhile it seemed like it was in limbo but now I seriously have no idea who owns it.

Last I checked, some suits who are using the main website (without the /forums) for marketing and such, but keep the forum open. Back when we had some serious forum issues I helped try and contact them, because they had been working with me on some design work.

They seem to listen when we need things done though, so that's a thing. In return, we provide them scores of Google traffic. :P

Allie, do you think if the forum as a whole got a list of requests figured out and sent it to them they would be open?

Things like maybe some new/active mods, quick reply back etc.

I like that quick reply is gone. Cuts down on the drama

I'm in contact with the admins frequently. I'll ask about the quick reply again. It's an anti-spam device, but we sort of have that handled by auto-moderating all new users, so it may be redundant.

What a ridiculous question, I can't believe you would ask that. Who are these highly "prestiged" members? Define prestiged please, I don't think it means what you think it means. Shed some light on the owner?...how dare you. Pfft.

I think the questions and lack of quick reply are made redundant by the ten post rule. It cuts down on drama but slows to forum to a crawl. If there's a problem with moderating, couldn't there be more mods made?

Lack of quick reply may have cut down on drama, but it also cut down on people talking on Chaz at all.

This.

Part of the reason why I don't post here as often is because of the questions. It's a pain in the butt to do.
