    This reminds me of spike’s comment & chip’s sentiment, “... I mean, they don’t call those creeps decepticons for nothing.” From one of those rude awakening videos...

    As to what actually happened with the thread mergings, I think it might’ve had something to do with new moderators they added a while back... so on one hand I’m thinking they want to be sensitive to balancing the needs of the newly volunteered help they were looking to get (and likely needed due to volume of demands/needs to maintain the website) and satisfying the needs/wants of us (and other) users, so we too should be sensitive to steps they’ll try to take to remedy the issue(s). I mean, you don’t want to chew out people that offered their time freely to help as a mod. In any case, glad to see that a mod is going to look to get us clarification in the next few days.

    But what if the "new mod" hated having to regulate umpteen threads of ko offerings, and just decided to pull a thanos?

    Can you slap thanos' hand? Can you reverse the "Snap" as it was? We're not allowed to question Thanos, whomever was wearing the gauntlet to cause this crap-merge.

    I want free access to the fuzzy area for this.

    I can.

    Just please have a bit more patience. Things are moving faster than I expected behind the scenes. I'll be happy to address things via PM if you're not satisfied once we're done.

    Thanks.

    clearly what we need is a group of mods to go back in time to various points, find the old threads, return to the present, and reopen them.

    hopefully without anyone sacrificing themselves for one the threads or encountering their past self that was still loyal to past thanos mod who switches places with them with the intent on destroying the current KO thread.

    I’m sorry but this line works way to well with the thanos comparison and your icon being Batman. :D

    'Obscurion' was my pick for a "sounds ridiculous but also sort of cool" name as well. :lol

    Be careful what you ask for!!!!!

    This got upgraded too.

    Thanks, I am so glad to hear that you all are working so hard!! If DEED and my team can help in anyway, let us know. While he's a little chaotic, his heart is good, and obviously we have some serious KO love.

    Speaking of:

    Deed is still having Internet connectivity issues, so he emailed this and told me to post it here. I HAVE NO IDEA DON'T ASK ME. I assume since it's explicitly referencing this thread it's legal here.

    "HI KnOkers!

    Thanks for the naming suggestions. Here's what's now immortalized on the Docket!

    YOUR TEAM: The KnOkers.
    GESTALT NAME: Obscurion CLUSTERFUCTICON

    15 Member Team.

    Your Subordinates:
    Team: The Troop Builders: Gestalt Name: Scramble Genericon (16 Member Team Plus Clone Army)

    DEED"


    So, yeah, there's that. Like I said, ask him when he gets back. Sounds like Combiner teams...I guess. Not sure why Board People's names are on there.

    Could you be more specific why "It sucks"? What's wrong with it?

    It's just really flimsy and fragile, mine is full of stress marks and I've only taken it apart twice. I could probably pulverize it with my bar hands.

    I don't know what all that necessarily means... but cool! (?)

    SMOG was the name of my old Transformers MUSH original character, so that works for me. Hope he's a jet. :lol

    Just a bit of miscommunication, not really going to go into it more than that.
