Has been suggested several times lately: a read-only section with, uh, legendary, epic topics. Focus probably on humor/drama.

We need at least five topics to start one. I have in mind, so far:

* The 10,000 NGBC Drama Slots of MUGEN  [the world versus DJ-Van's mp3-plugin that wasn't his]
* The Coliseum [the single longest-running argument between two users]
* The New Guild poll topic [from August last year after the forum changes]
* Way To Go, MUGEN DEV Forum! >:( [snapshot of the confusion caused by the release of the WinMUGEN hack]
* The Dangers of MUGEN [it is not safe to bring MUGEN to other countries!!!!!!!]

[insert links later.] More suggestions?

Reasons against such a section: might incite some users to purposefully try to make topics and post in a manner they think will secure them a spot in the boards of legends [more often than not, they will fail and make Bad Topics/Posts instead].

There is risk of it becoming a "mock people" section.

Yes!

"If you think the move does too much damage JUST BLOCK IT" would be there as well, if it had happened on Guild. Aww.

Well. We'd try to choose only topics of a certain level. They would need to be comical from most perspectives. That most of these topics become funny because of accidents or because one or several persons blunder is just how it goes. Mmh.

Like QOTD but longer and better.

Not all topics have to be humorous, legendary useful topics could also be saved. I can't think on a single one, though. Like the topics in which permission to use snk-capcom sprites was attained.

Just block was SMF. ;)  Depends on what you mean by "Just Block" because CCMario used it for a good two years at least. :P

We now have a Hall of Fame. Name and description ok?

Did I set the permissions for the board correctly? It should be read-only for normal users.

If you find any more suitable topics please post them here.

[E], you meant the original one? Umm. Dunno whether it even survived. Should we leave Messatsu's topic in place or remove it until anyone finds the original?

Would be fine by me.

Turn-ons is still there (never read it)... what happened to the How often do you masturbate topic? Can anyone find it? I only find a bunch of disconnected deleted replies.
