    You may have noticed that the board was offline last night. This was due to someone (who shall not be named unless they'd like to fess up) cmnd-clicking or ctrl-clicking (or possibly not clicking at all) an option in the AdminCP when they should have simply been clicking, in trying to close the VR. As a result, some (read: all) threads were moved to the Red Room. Thanks to Nick's timely intervention, all threads started prior to 2/22/16 have been moved back to their respective rooms, and I spent about 2.5 hours trying to clean up the rest. However, that was about midnight to 2 AM last night, so no doubt some have slipped through the cracks (particularly those started from mid-April through late October, but any date since 2/22 is possible). If you find as thread of yours started somewhere other than the Red Room has gone missing, please post here (or if I missed a Blue Room thread, PM a staff member) the title, original room, and rough ballpark start date, and we'll move it back.

    Now you've got us all wondering whose guilt is potentially going to be kept in hiding. :lol:

    There was a thread in which @Anna , @tafkats and @Tuckerfan were discussing @gturner and whether or not he should be unbanned. I demand you release that thread back into the Red Room!

    It'll be released into Shelter Thread releases when we're done with it. Definitely not into the Red Room.

    I brought order to chaos.

    Or Nick did. I just cleaned up the splatter.

    Also, this is particularly relevant for the TK Sanctuary forum. Other than the one sticky post, I have literally 0 idea what threads were in there.

    Eh. Since TK is back online, it's probably been time to collapse that anyway. :shrug:

    It happens. When you feel bad, just remember that when I was first upgrading the board, it crashed, and took 3 days and @The Exception's help to get things rolling again.

    I am glad to see you are back again. For a moment I though castle and Turner went all Columbine on your asses and then I remembered that would involve them not shooting each other by accident. Well, I did have another which involved chup in a skirt and blue and yellow warpaint shouting freedom as he cleaved his way through a server room in Canada. I am not sure why Canada was involved.

    Hmm... considering the usual consequences for sharing Blue Room information outside the Blue Room... Moving the entire contents of the Blue Room to the Red Room is several orders of magnitude more severe. How should this be punished?

    I vote spankings. Lots and lots of spankings. Thousands of spankings.

    This is clearly a conspiracy to silence dissenting opinions.

    What if it's clearly dissent to silence a conspiracy of opinions?

    Nick should have to post a picture of himself in effeminate shoes stomping on a burning book.

    Well, you, at least, can admit when you fuck up which is more than I can say for John or Gul.
