Not sure, it's a new thing that was added during the downtime on Thursday - and a big part of why you're seeing less spam now because, believe it or not, there's actually more than ever at the moment.

My trivial grumble is Entrails and Flayed Disciple clashing at FOAD. There was a whole bunch of sludge bands on the second stage that could've been put on at the same time as Entrails so it was a tad annoying to have 2 death metal bands on at the same time.

Opportunities aside, I really do not see myself ever moving to Birmingham. Massively impersonal, alienating place. Walking through the crowded Bullring on the way back to New Street I was like "fuck this".

Can't say I disagree with that. I've only been there a couple of times but the place looks and feels like it could suck the soul right out of you in a very short space of time.

One thing I've noticed about Birmingham City Centre is the lack of decent boozers.


I managed to find a couple of really nice ones...although I did have rather a lot of help from The Good Beer Guide and The Good Pub Guide apps.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Would that also be why young Miss Boneduster's new account didn't last long?
Great idea though, can see why it'd be annoying for people like Jeemz but it saves you guys having to go through and banhammering all the spam, I take it?

I couldn't possibly comment on Boneduster's account ;)

The spam still needs to be got rid of, it just means it doesn't get posted 'visibly' to you first and it's quicker to get rid of everything in one fell swoop through the Moderator control panel than having to open up loads of tabs and delete each spam post individually.

They still appear in the spam queue, don't you worry about that!

TG: Bought a talapia, having not seen one before, and thought it looked a decent size. Turns out it gives less meat than a sodding ray.
If it sounds good, listen to it

Ahhhh so that's why the post moderation thing is there.

Do hope it's not too many posts needed before it stops though.

Due to new account Ive gone back to a lowly peon :(


EDIT: THIS POST DIDN'T QUE :yes:
