    So while I leave you guys to take my Sprogling to bed, I implore you all to go to the homepage and go see all the tags right at the bottom because they are FUNNY. And I super-question who put them there.

    We came to the conclusion that it's literally the new forum owners because the mods can't even edit them. Like when you click on them they link to Google searches.

    It's a search engine feature that basically lists what search engine terms are used which result in the site appearing and then users being led here.

    As a basic level admin, as far as I can find/am aware I can't edit that feature as its built into the site structure. Forum Foundry are aware and looking into it. There is likely a filtering method to help control it or a means to hide it. Rest assured we are aware of it

    The new owners want more traffic so they are inviting perverts to come here. It's....working?

    Getting an 'lol' response is probably worse that getting left on read.

    Forum Foundry needs to be made aware of the lack of Goat emojis on TFF!

    Forum Foundry is perfectly happy making whatever meager ad revenues they are making from TFF and doesn't care about whether or not we are goat-less or sleep-less in Seattle

    Why would you bother to make extra work for yourself for the sake of about 10 people? I'm honestly surprised they still keep paying for TFF.

    I just got done saying that they don't :p

    I can't imagine operating a forum is expensive, especially when you operate many of them.

    True, but a cost is still a cost. I'd be surprised if it lasted another year or two though with it's currently population.
