    I mean, it might be a good idea to at least secure the name. Subreddits can't be renamed and so far Wordforge and Wordforge United are still available.

    I don't worry that Dayton will know how to use the site but we can certain ban Castle if he tries any bullshit.

    The one thing I would be concerned with is when the inevitable new blood trickles in and they see "free speech" they'll think it's an invitation to spew the same shit they do at r/incels and r/redpill. If we want to move forward, that's something we'd *have* to be clear about or face the entire subreddit getting shut down if someone wants to report us for hate speech.

    Just something to consider before moving forward.

    My Reddit account doesn't have enough karma to secure them.

    To have a backup in case of board outages, you mean?

    If you need someone with sufficient karma, I could secure Wordforge on Reddit.

    Somebody snagged Wordforge already, must have been one of you folks, but I registered Wordforge United.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/wordforge_united/

    If you're on Reddit, toss me a PM with your names so I can put you guys in the Mods and Admins list.
