500,000 Posts!

There's nothing more satisfying than waking up to see Richard's Animorphs Forum crossing another milestone. This time, RAF Forum (thank to the RAF Party to celebrate this day) passed the 1/2 million (500,000) posts mark.

For reference, our 400,000 posts milestone was passed on May 7, 2010; over six months ago. Interestingly, for the past year, RAF has gained 200,000 posts.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our members; both dormant and active for participating in the Ultimate Animorphs Forum!

Here's to the next 500,000!

RAF Party: 1/2 Million Edition

So tomorrow we are expected to break the 500,000 posts mark on RAF. To celebrate, the 13th of November will be the first RAF Party held in months.

So what is RAF Party:

Both Richard and I (Russell) had the idea that it would be fun to let the bored board count toward your post count one day of out the month. This would be a monthly day for everyone to come and post on RAF, go in RAF chat, break RAF records, and become a forum personality. New comers to the forum are encouraged to make themselves known and old personalities are welcome to post in the Animorphs section for a change.

Perks for posting on RAF Party days:

1. Bored Board counts towards post count.
2. +2 Karma for creating a new thread.

The party will begin on 12:01 am Saturday and end on 12:00 am Sunday November 13-14 EST

Thanks to Myitt for her 4th donation!

Myitt ties to become #1 donor!
This is a big one guys: Myitt has donated for the fourth time today, and as a result ties Adam  for the number one spot of biggest RAF donor.

Interestingly enough, Adam has donated seven times and has been #1 since May 2009.

In addition to getting that warm feeling inside when you donate to RAF; Myitt now places 9th on the most karma'd RAFian list thanks to her +50 karma points received.

Thanks again Myitt and congratulations for being tied as RAF's biggest donor!

Appeal to Smiters!

This is a simple plea to everyone who uses our Karma system (applauding and smiting users):

I'm appealing to anyone who disagrees with a post of another to consider whether the post is worthy of being reported to the staff. I say this because I have seen instances where persons are smiting others because they are being rude/offensive or insensitive.

Consider this, if you simply smite the user, he/she will continue to offend or degrade. If the post is reported to a moderator/staff (by simply clicking the Report to Moderator link on each post), the matter can be dealt with more comprehensively. In other words an official complaint is lodged.

In addition, beginning today the administrators will be reviewing each and every smite issued; and the reason why the person was smited. This is being done to ensure persons are not being unfairly reprimanded by other members and to determine whether action should be taken against the person smited.

Thanks guys! Any problem or issue, please feel free to contact the staff.

DYK 83: Did You Know?
