Title speaks for itself. Have a question to an admin/mod? Feel free to ask.

haha thanks a lot!! that was fast ;)

So me and some other VIPs were wondering about the "usergroups" thingy.
We didnt really understand how it works... Does it mean we choose our groups, or that mods and admins do that?

You mean for people that donated? There will be a special usergroup, but at this time we haven't finalized it yet.

Not yet, but it's on its way.

We'll try to find a modification for it, but since the forum software is different from IPB there might not be any (hopefully there is, though).

Is there going to be some kind of like/dislike system?

Not yet, but once the forum grows there will be.

We don't plan on adding this since we want to encourage people to come out and discuss rather than just pressing buttons with a post they agree with.

If we were to add this, there certainly wouldn't be a dislike function.

See my post above, as of yet we have no moderator.

The owners are Sunflower and me (& some important people behind the scenes :) )

Tbh there are benefits to a like system, but also negatives.
I agree with the whole adding to conversation idea rather then just liking what someone said. Also sometimes likes can go to peoples heads (Such as I've seen on the AKP forums)
That's just my say on the matter ^,^

Are you guys gonna add stuff like awards and won (doesn't have to be that but you get the gist of it)?

It's not on our radar at the moment, and I don't think it's even possible with the current forum software. Maybe if we switch to Invision one day.

So once this forum really kicks up, and people do donate will we be doing projects, etc.? Or think of teaming up with K-vips for projects with money?

We haven't really thought about this yet since is such a distant future goal, right now it's just not realistic nor do we have any experience with it. But if it is possible, expect us to do projects yes.

Another question, the fanart/fanfic section. This also includes graphic/other creative art right? Seeing as not everyone does 'fanart'

Is there anyway there could be a more general name for this subsection?
