Greetings, Citizens.

Effective immediately, I am placing NerfHaven in a state of martial law. No longer will the administration sit idly by while terrorists plot to destroy our community. As Minister of Torture and head of the radical NerfHaven militia wing, Vacc will henceforth be in charge of all cruel and unusual punishment.

New user registration has ended. If you don't have an account now, you're not likely to have one until Karma is done and fully tested. If you think you are particularly deserving of an account, send a one page essay to vacc@nerfhaven.com detailing why he should let you join The Haven. Include references in the form of links to your wonderful posts elsewhere.

I will be largely absent while working on Karma, a few interesting new mods, and your mom.

As usual, when all else fails...

Nerf on or fuck off.

Heh I'm very glad to see this come into effect finally, and although I personally wish it had been done earlier, it will be interesting to see how people's posts change with the Karma system implemented.

AA

EDIT (directed to no one in particular): It's also ironic to see the semi-morons of the forum be happy and excited that you are implementing this. (Which I may be a part of, then again, not sure.)

I'm still quasi-alive! I'll be back helping VACC out in about 2 weeks, which is when exams will be over. Then, THRIST will have lost his opportunity to gain his spot back, and I'll be back being active on the community.

I understand that you want to filter out the n00bs coming to this forum, but don't you think that the extra effort for registering on this forum might discourage some great potential users? This would make it so only the people that really, really want to get in instead of other people that don't want to spend the extra time writing a one page essay.

That's a good point. Although I'd be happy to get rid of unwanted users, we are not an isolated elitist society, and although we aren't newb-friendly, we accept users that have something useful to say. So maybe, you should keep user registration open, but make it so that for 2 months the new users start with an extremely low karma so that they are forced to keep their posts clean and valuable. Just an idea.

AA

EDIT: off topic, but I'd thought I'd take the time to note and congratulate ompa on his 1000th post. Yes, 1000th.

This is true, but then again, do we want a ton of people that are half-heartedly into nerf and just do it to kill time, no, we want the kind of people that would strangle someone for an x-bow or drive three hours just to get a maverick or risk looking like a moron by pushing a cart full of NFs through the kids section in target and all that other crazy shit that we do.

Dang, sorry to repeat AA, i posted at the same time.

I think it would be a good idea to asigh one member of NerfHaven to check the NHQ boards and if they spot a user that would be good to have here, send them an invite to join NerfHaven. That of course goes along with the new essay rule.

just do it to kill time

I thought that was what nerf is for. I do it just to kill time.

I think you guys must have missed that part. Registration will be opened once Karma is done. Seems like a sensible solution to me.

I am glad you guys are finally working to keep the moron population down, but dont you think this is kind of extreme? We want more people to join nerf, dont we? I think We should do a mixture of airapache and 1/2 newb 1/2 nerfer's ideas, we should designate people as scouts to check other sights and read other forums, then have them send inviations to those who may be worthy, but I think closing down registration altogether is too harsh.Maybe another good Idea would be to add a few things to the registration form, such as nerfing experience, mods done, stuff like that. Just suggestions, of course!

Thanks, but I did forget about the part where he will reopen registration after implementation (I think) of Karma.

No offence but scouting is the dumbest idea I've ever heard. If someone is a shining star of nerfhq but hasn't joined nerfhaven, then there's probably a reason. I can see someone wanting to remain at nerfhq where it tends to be more laid back.

For those of you who don't know what Karma is(and you are probably the very idiots karma is being made to stop):

I'm sure there are more threads but I can't find them.

A few of you lack an understanding of the role NH plays in the world of Nerf related forum sites. We're not discouraging people from joining a Nerf forum, we're discouraging them from joining this Nerf forum.

It's an important distinction because, frankly, we don't give a shit. The Haven was created to escape from the idiotic masses, now they're all here. I hope Vacc deletes a few people while registration is turned off.

Hey guys...

This is a Nerf forum for information exchange.

Not a social club.

Invitations? No thanks.

I'm joining VACC's militia of unusual torture. I have to go look for used Milli Vanilli CD's. Or Britney Spears.

Not necessarily. A few of them just don't have any stimulus to do so yet. An invataion might. And no, it's not a social club, nor anything else. But the more educated and non-idiotic people on the forums, the better. This also complies with Cx's statement of how NH is a haven from the idiots.

And Cx, the idiotic masses suprisingly aren't that bad, at least not compared to some places like NHQ. however, I do see where you're annoyance comes in.

I for one am very happy this is happening. I've been here for over a year, which is not a long time compared to so people, and it amazes me how fast some people accumulate posts. I may not have that many, but that's because it kind of bugs me when people respond to posts with "I agree” or spend two posts bashing some new guy. Simple solution, no new guys. I'm no god of nerf, but the stupidity here sometimes is incredible.

Well... but... Damnit.

I was just wondering though, is there any particular reason for closing the doors? Other than just to give some breathing room?

And I wish you luck Cx, hope you finish Karma soon.
