    I can't reliably commit to being a moderator, but if I see unsavory nonsense being posted I will gladly report it.

    I don't think most of us can commit to the point where we will be able to be available 24/7, but the goal is to have one moderator per section. Each moderator has global mod powers though, so if you're on and another mod isn't, and there is trouble in their section, you could still take action and vise-versa. Plus, I'll probably be around the most and be able to take care of a lot of things when others aren't around.

    If you're even mildly interested in being a mod, apply and we can further discuss accommodations etc. And if the forum gets bigger, it'll probably end up being 2 mods to each section... but that's obviously only if we get a good amount of members.

    No problem... Eph, Jim, AA, Kelmourne and a few others joined and have been posting already, so feel free to if you'd like. And there's an application for a mod position as well :)

    So would I :(

    Still, I have to say I really appreciate the effort, Liv. If we can't save TFF, at least we have a chance to save (a part of) the community thanks to your forum! :)

    You guys are all really important to me. I've been on this site since I was 13... I'll be 26 this year so literally half of my life. I'd do anything to keep the community going. If I had $2k lying around I'd buy the forum outright without a doubt

    I signed up. Somehow I never imagined the idea that this place would get sold again.

    You can post too, people are already posting a bit :)

    I never imagined it either, but honestly it isn't that surprising. CB neglects TFF a lot unfortunately.

    Well, I'm digging Liv's new forum. So much stuff there to fiddle with! I'll try not to break anything. :D

    Life goes on, the double edged sword that it is.

    hehe I'm sure you won't! JIM probably will though! :p

    Adj Suitable
    suited to the purpose or occasion; appropriate: an apt metaphor; a few apt remarks on world peace.

    I can commit to napping.

    On a more serious note, if someone within actually wants to buy out the forum we could always help that person out financially via a fund me page, or something like that. Just a thought. You would be surprised how fast it adds up if there are actually people who want things to happen.

    I wouldn't know the first thing about running a forum but I can help someone else who is passionate about it.
