The fort90forum lives and breathes again! First off, a big thank you is in order to both Jon Beilin (aka dongle) and Dave Mauro (aka dmauro, obviously) for helping to make it all happen.

I'm the master of sniffing out batshit insanity on the internet, or so I've been told, but when it comes to understanding the ones and zeroes behind it all, I'm a total retard. So thank God both fine fellows offered to step up to the plate and deal with not just the software related headaches but help make things pretty like. This new place is still a work in progress, so expect further refinements in the near future. Maybe. At the very least, isn't that banner at the top super cool?

As noted numerous times, and in many places, when the first iteration of the board went belly up over at dhex.org a month ago, I basically went "well that sucks... fun while it lasted" and assumed that was it. But surprisingly, I began hearing from all sorts of people that they really missed it and wanted it back. Despite the fact that there was only six or so active posters at most, you also had a fuckton of lurkers.

So here we are. Maybe it'll be the same old song, or maybe some new folks will finally join, especially since it's been proven that everyone around here is (for the most part) quite friendly and chill. Though I'm hoping for the latter, at least to justify all the time and energy spent towards the new digs. Speaking of, a bunch of people have asked what happen to the old content... and there was a ton of awesome topics, like the epic random images and random video threads. They might be coming back, albeit in an archived format, provided that dongle is able to recover the seemingly corrupted back-up file. Others have tried, but failed. And even if the past is lost forever, we will build it, bigger and stronger than ever.

Okay, what the hell am I talking about? What's with the speech? Anyway, once again, listen to the law...

1. First and foremost, don't be a douchebag. Since this place is meant to be an escape from the retardation that plagues most other message boards, if you get on anyone's nerves, or just mine, from obnoxious or all around asshole-ish behavior, you won't last long.

2. That being said, don't be a pussy either. Most of the regulars around here have tough skin, so it's practically a pre-requisite. Again, personal attacks will not be tolerated, but if you're the kind of person who gets easily offended by grandiose statements like "holy shit, you have to be a total jerk-off to enjoy X movie/television show/band/video game/whatever" either step up to the plate and offer a counterpoint or just don't get so worked up over stuff said on the internet in the first place.

3. Ultimately, be smart. Please try to keep things relatively nice and clean across (most of) the boards. For the down and dirty stuff, throw all that goodness into the Secret Chamber. Since the outside world can't look in, feel free to be as freaky as you want, but even then, be kind and label anything that's NSFW as such. Also no absolutely nothing illegal, like kiddie porn or whatever that could potentially land me in jail.

4. Also be mindful of the fact that myself and the rest of the moderators are a kind, benevolent lot, but we also rule with a firm and steady iron first. For the last time, don't do anything stupid and you will surely enjoy your stay here!


... I really wish I could remember what the rules of conduct was last time. I don't recall me being so verbose/long-winded/aggressive. Oh well.
