I just realised that out those left in this thing, I'm one of the oldest at it despite technically being retired by force of ban early on. If you took everyone left other than "Lunatic", I am one of the most ancoent of those left and who still throws himself into the arena. In fact my main rival for this title is Zaradi at this point.

Virtuoso basically said he is too, he didn't shut me down whatsoever but believe what you want. You are never going to be among the most ancient online debaters Dr. Franklin since you basically aim to spam and laugh.

6 here. If I'm not mistaken you're only like 1 or 2 older than that, and then there are users who got started on DDO pretty much when it first started around 2007 and who still pop up from time to time (e.g. buddamoose, danielle, sitaramusica, etc).

Is there going to be a change in the tags as in a certain limit?

I think there is going to be a point where there is multiple different tags which essentially mean the same thing. It is better to do something now then fix a problem when it is a problem.

You can have a public vote or whatever and then decide on selected tags. I think it would be best to pick ones that transcend forum sections and some exclusive to each forum.

Example: Important to be used in all.
Mafia to be used in the games section.

Lunatic is just a contrarian who on occasion makes a casual fool of himself... not really much of a debater.

I was never an amazing debater nor would I claim to be. But in spite of arguing the contrary now, I don't think I am a contrarian either. Just because we've had disagreements in the past doesn't mean I am out looking for an argument, most of the time I see something posted I don't agree with I roll my eyes and keep it to myself.

Anyways happy new years, and you should try making a fool out of yourself sometimes, makes life a little less dull.
