    Well, still glad to see you as owner instead of Eric.

    As I said in the announcement:
    Yes, the reputation system will be back.

    Regarding the name change, we're way ahead of you. ;)

    See this thread.

    Zoltar: We will be getting a new, professional skin in the near future. Points..I'm not sure..but I assume we'll look into hacks again when things are more settled. We removed all hacks for the time being.

    -edit

    Damn, max beat me. I suck at life ;(! :p

    Believe it or not this place has allot of potential, especially with someone who is dedicated to it. Well I myself do not know you Max, but if your willing to go the distance, and don't limit staff and help them than I am sure your new ownership of the site will work out very well, and the site will go far.

    Are you serious with this ****?

    Way to alienate most of our memberbase by not listening. But then again, according to Eric this new guy "has more experience and power than anyone on BF".

    Shove that in your ass and smoke it son, cause unless he's posted on these forums for years like a good portion of the current members have (or should I say the members that were current, before the week + long shutdown, which I told people was going to happen) he doesn't know **** about the forums.

    He's gonna come in here, gut it, rework it, hope that something comes of it and when it doesn't, he'll either close it down or sell it off, likely for less than he paid for it. He'll take his loses and move on.

    Admins have always come and gone, but the members? We're what makes the site worth comming to anymore.

    edit - also, lemme get my username back in Black.

    The Asylum is gone, for reasons which were stated earlier (the first time it was removed). Secondly, postcount was recounted after the forum changes. Because some posts were removed, many peoples post-counts were affected.
