  1. Do we need a Negativity Sub Forum?

    Sounds like a plan to me! There's enough negativity in real life as it is. I've got no desire in having it here too. So I'd love to have a forum for that, which I can then happily ignore.
  2. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Excellent choice of words. That would be this boat then: Good boat to be in! Good one!
  3. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Oh, those actually include the specials? Brilliant! I've been wondering about that because the information on the internet tends to be a bit mum on the contents of the boxes. Thank you very much.
  4. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    Don't worry. With all the Porg-related marketing, the aporgalypse was inevitable!
  5. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Does anyone have the faintest clue if there will be an "all in one" box set containing seasons 1-10 plus specials for the new series? I've been trying to figure out which exact discs to buy to get it all, but it's very nearly rocket science to figure that out for some reason.
  6. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    Maybe my post isn't funny. But yours most certainly is! Classic first class comedy; I'm impressed.
  7. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    At least I keep it below the surface. No change from me. I'm considering option #3, but that might be overkill. The way I figure it: Changing display name should be acceptable, in certain rare circumstances if there happens to be a good reason for it.
  8. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    It is more that, as a long-time forum Admin myself, I know only too well the reasons why it isn't a good idea to allow this. On the other hand, it is massively entertaining (in totally the wrong way) to see how certain people here REALLY want to be able to do it. For no apparent reason, other than some measure of perceived "fun". Silly stuff like this (and the bizarre occasional apparent "flame wars") are major contributing factors on why I'm not around all that often. It does tend to chase people away. But the only reason why I bother arguing at all is because I have hope for a better future for JWFan. But really, I don't care all that much.

    An infinite number of other (and probably better) ways to have fun remain, even when you can't change username. Or is "changing username every three months" the only light in the darkness and the only thing that keeps you going?
  10. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    As someone who doesn't bother hiding, I still don't mind if people use fake names on the internet. I honestly don't know why someone would think everyone must use their real name. That's a personal choice. Whatever floats your boat, right? But repeatedly and deliberately changing username is just weird. That's hilarious! But isn't the whole point of an "ID" that it serves as a unique identifier? Even here, all members have a unique ID number so that the forum software at least knows who's who. Of course that doesn't really help the real people here, because who is going to look at and remember those numbers?
  11. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    Changing names is very similar to making multiple accounts. On my other forum, that is very specifically against forum rules. Necessary clause to help avoid trolling. This is JWFan. Can we spend our time talking about John Williams? And film music? And movies? And have friendly fun while doing it? That's all I'd want from this place.
  12. Should JWfan be a bit better behaved?

    Couldn't ask for more than that.
  13. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    Indeed maybe not. We switched to Xenforo a good many years ago. Anyway, I'm just trying to understand the desire for changing user names, along with alternate ways to fulfill the same desire while maintaining a fixed username at the same time. I always like "win-win" scenarios wherever possible.

    Have a look here: http://piratesahoy.net/threads/build-14-beta-4-1-wip-last-update-31-august-2017.27122/ I mean the coloured markers that say "Staff Member", "Administrator", "Storm Modder" and "Hearts of Oak Donator" for my account there.
