Okay, I understand the basics of the economic realities of running an internet site. I do not say that there should be no pop-ups.

But is it necessary that every single time I click on a link in this new Heaven that I get a pop-up advertisement. Each time I must stop my Heaven task and close the infernal pop-up for if I do not I soon have 7 or 8 of them floating around and I can not navigate without bumping into one.

Just exactly why so many pop-ups? It seems ultimately counter productive to me. I spend more time with the pop-ups than I do with Heaven.

I'm sure the OD forum is not a place GreatWizard would visit on his own account .

After all, the OD is where all "puny" discussions goes...? *tries to look majestically wise*

LOL.

You are correct sir. I just followed the link (and got a pop-up on the way) and found myself in a place where I had never been.

But I am now back (and got hit with another pop-up on the way back in).

I have some more question but I will take them to that other place.

Thanks again.

The OD forum has quite a reputation - as we discovered the hard way when people banned there came here to make fun of us and there was no regular staff about to send them away.

It's pretty vicious, but of late I've taken to posting there. A lot of people with (to put it lightly) odd posts, there.

I don't think I'll ever post in the OD - looking at the Account Modification forum, seems like most of the people banned came from OD...

Adamant: You're right. They make up just about all. The exceptions are mostly people who request a banning, like sishir or Ornlu. the remainder (about 5%) are for other reasons.

There are forums a lot more sick than OD. I would mention one, but it's a bit taboo at HG. I hate it, it's full of sickos.

I see.

This may destroy my reputation utterly, but I think I'll joing the forums. Some of the topics are pretty interesting. Heh.

I suppose you guys can't act too horrified-I saw posts by a couple people there.

Nothing to be horrified about and nope it won't destroy your reputation. AoEH is just a tiny place in the whole of HG. HG Main is where everyone from HG gathers together, sort of a meeting place to bring people from different Heavens together.

Anyway, after registering an account on the other database, you might soon find other forums like the Library and the History Forums to be more intellectual. OD is more like a place to get wild, nothing very smart about it there.

It's also a bit more lenient on the CoC.

True, in some aspects only, like the language used, etc. However, the moderators are actually more lenient here (I believe, in most other Heavens too) and give second chances to forumers who break the CoC.

The problem is not about leninacy, it's just the type of forummer. Most people in AoEH are of the very civilised and controlled type. Most people who want to loose themselves on the forums would not remain here for 6 years. They move on to post on busier forums.

Due to our age, the remaining forummers here are usually the friendliest ones.
