    Does this forum have mods? Seems to be that this place is getting a bunch of useless threads or threads in wrong forum. Just wondering if they exist and if they don't I would suggest recruiting some people.

    :) nice. I have to agree though. Maybe 2 more mods in addition to arn would be nice.

    I disagree. The OP is providing feedback on the site and therefore here is fine. There is an increase in useless posts, spamming posts, and posts in incorrect threads. I do get the sense that things are slowly getting out of hand..

    Hey Guys,

    Moderators are coming. Some have been invited already. Do not apply to be a moderator, we pick you.

    Things have gotten a bit out of control. A few rules to help keep the forums tidy. Violating most of these will result in a ban:

    - No asking for promo codes unsolicited
    - Keep threads on topic
    - Fake release threads will result in a ban
    - Do not spam your blog or review site.
    - You have to be 13 years or older to participate in these forums

    When you say ban do you mean a permanent ban from the site?

    Thanks for the update, glad to see things are getting done.
     
  13. Arn, when I first came to these forums I went straight to the iPhone games section not knowing anything about the rules because there is nothing there telling us of them.
    And if we close a thread or worse, ban somebody, they may not know why.
    So I suggest a sticky should be put in all the sections, especially the iPhone and Touch games section, explaining the rules. This way there are no excuses. See what I mean?

    I agree with all of them except the 2nd one. To an extent. Maybe not let a topic about Rolando go to other platformers, but instead allow something informative to drift to questions and deeper conversation. But the others make great sense, and then some.
