I've noticed that too. I've also seen "Unknown Action" before. Actually, I remember seeing your status as "Unknown Action" just yesterday.

So I was being nosy and seeing who was online, and I saw this:



What the heck does that mean?  "Nothing you can see?"  Might as well insert a :suffer:!!
It could be the private staff board. :suffer:

...though doon should be able to see that. Maybe there's a super-private board? :P

Any Super Private Board would be for Administrators. There's a private Staff board, a Private PR board, and that's all I know right now. If there's anything else, I don't have security clearance for it. Yes, I said security clearance XD

Actually, I've never been able to see that board. I forgot to mention that in the email thread.

Really? Talk to an admin and they should be able to put you in the staff group. I'd do it myself, but a Global Mod doesn't have that kind of power sadly...

Mine?  That's weird.  I don't remember traveling to any other dimensions yesterday.  Maybe I was in the Twilight thread. :P

It could be the private staff board. :suffer:
There's a private staff board?  Aw man, you blew the secret, Snabbott!  Now it's not a secret anymore!

I don't really think it's much of a secret. I mean, most forums have them. Back in the day when I had my own forum, I had a private staff only section. I imagine most forums in existence have them.

This is why the internet gets so confusing. You can never tell seriousness from non-seriousness.

That's why there needs to be a sarcasm font! :yes: Every time you're not being serious, you use that font.  That way there's no confusion and people don't misinterpret what you mean.

Or, you know, a Sarcasm Mark. Speaking of which...

I ask the same question about the interrobang. If there is a secret order for the Interrobang, I'm SO joining it. The interrobang is like the best thing to ever happen to the english language. Unfortunately, no one teaches it, and it's not easy to make on a computer. Basically, it's used in exclamatory questions, along the lines of, "She did what?!". But instead of using "?!" you would combine the two punctuation marks to make the interrobang. Why it's been erased from the english language I'll never know. I'm almost tempted to slip a reference to it TSL if I can convince the team do that... But it's probably not going to happen, as much as I'd like it to...

The interrobang is funny, but not especially useful. A sarcasm mark would be nice, but it would also take a great deal of subtlety out of language.

Meh. I couldn't care less. It's old news to me anyway. XD :rofl:

In all seriousness though, I am totally excited for the game to go public! I think everyone will be pleased with it!

I missed all the hype.  Ah, well, it was for a good cause.  Besides, I was at work at 3:00 anyway.  I remember staring at the clock (I was changing a diaper at the time :P) and going, "It's available now!  And I'm wrist deep in poop!"  ::)
