Why do I get the feeling that you're rather familiar...?

Because I used to be on the Simple Machines community forum before I deleted my account.
Yeah, the Simple Machines team gave me a hard time, so I just... kinda left their community.

You might want to watch yourself then, because I'm actually a team member over there, the customisation team leader at that.

Lets just say that over there, you lasted a lot longer because it's actually not down to a single person if a member is banned, which I have reason to think that you were.

Many over there are a lot more forgiving than I am, when you factor in that bans are actually decided by me alone.

Besides, this forum only exists now for integration sake and not much else.

By the way, I have an unofficial support forum, not affiliated with SMF, but I guess you won't be interested in the link. There isn't an "SMF Site Showcase" board on this forum, so...

Given that this is not a forum about supporting SMF, and is in fact about the Bongo Comics Group, of course there wouldn't be a showcase.

That'd be rather obvious.

Since it feels like I hijacked this topic, I may as well lock it without the help of an administrator.

This topic was locked because it felt like they were hijacking it a little.

I can bypass locks, so that's redundant.

Besides, straying into a different area of discussion in a topic when it happens is not a bad thing.

You know, if I was allowed to, I'd show you the link to my profile and it have the link to my unofficial forum there...but, it still counts as giving links, and you probably already know what my profile number is, so... :P

Edit: Wait, I think I see your IP address.

I had a quick look over there, and it's bleh.

Unofficial support forums don't do very well for reasons that should be rather obvious.



As for showing links to profiles and knowing ID numbers, I know my way around SMF and the theme I developed that this forum is using. Your website link is displayed next to your posts.

Well, at least it's a community. Besides, you could be a team member there if I allowed you to it :)

Edit: By the way, I'm "roleplaying" as someone from this movie called Suicide Squad.

I think I'll stick to what I have at the official community which is more then what you can ever achieve with the unofficial one.

Wow... I guess I'm the animal and you're the hunter, eh? (metaphorically)
I pleaded for mercy, and you shot me.

Well, lets just go with the fact that you're not really able to compete with the fact that I'm the Leader of the SMF Customisation team and have been for a total of five years, and have been on the team as whole for 11 years. Combined with being a member of the company board of directors for five years.

So I've been around a long time, and seen practically every unofficial support forum fail. Many don't see the need for unofficial support forums when the official one is superior for reasons that generally, that's where the people who know what they're talking about are going to be, and that isn't exclusive to SMF either.

Illori's had a successful unofficial support forum.
You're just hating mine because you don't want it to be popular enough.

Her's hasn't had a post on it in months nor would I consider ~750 posts total all that successful especially since it's been around since 2012.
