    Take the payment aspect out.

    What's wrong with allowing someone their own room if they are bringing people? We did it with Starscape and no problems.

    For the record, that's probably not a thing you should announceon the board. Preferrably you shouldn't have anyone on ignore as owner. There was a big dust up on that with Anc re: garamet , which was why Gul and shootER decided to neuter Fleshy's rep when he was sending them 200 negs a day.

    If Gul, shootER and I could suffer gtardo, you can suffer Tererun ;) :nyer:

    That out the way...sure, if she's got people who are looney enough to give this place a shot, let her have it, I guess. Can't be any worse than the Neutered Zone retards that wonder here every six months. :P

    While I think Zombie has a valid point, I don't think it's terribly different from Reddit making moderators of subreddit creators.

    Hmm, if it's like a NeoWastes forum that Lonaf had, and a Starscape lounge here, I'm down with this.
    @shootER, what say you?

    I'd be willing to give it a try, with the caveat that Terrerun's mod privileges only work in that forum.

    The difference is that Reddit controls all of reddit. The subreddit's belong to Reddit and it could at anytime remove any moderators or users of a sub no matter how pissed off the users get.

    In Wordforge's case the owners would be allowing an outside business entity to use Wordforge. If something goes wrong the owners of Wordforge, who have no ability to tell Tererun how to conduct business, could face legal liability issues. What happens when one of Tererun's customers step out of line and Wordforge says they gotta go but Tererun says no? You guys are really setting yourself up for problems down the road.

    This isn't the same as Starscape where the people of Starscape were allowed to post here because their board died. Starscape wasn't a business. Starscape was just another board.

    Tererun is attempting to start a business which brings in income. Are the board owners willing to sign a contract? What about taxes? Whose going to deal with that? What happens if someone hacks something? Or if someone accuses someone on this board of sexual harassment through the PM system?

    Wordforge should not be part of any business unless that business is owned 100% by the owners of Wordforge.

    • Warned for off-topic trolling.
    Because Tererun the "master troll" doesn't need his own room to jack off. He(she) just needs a free hand. Or finger...

    I've known people who tried this before and I just don't see his Alpaca business being all that lucrative.

    This is not open mic night at the comedy club. The purpose of this forum is to allow members a chance to read and add their input to staff discussions. Looks like productive discussion has come to an end here.
