Todd has been promoted to global moderator!

Hello folks, I'd like to introduce you to your new moderator: @Todd. You may recognize him most from the GD downloads section but in the background he has been active in our team discussions. Due to his consistent activities we decided we should give him full moderator powers. He has been a media mod since May of 2015. Congrats to being more orange buddy!

Merged Movies, TV & Books with General and re-organized content

We've merged the 'Movies, TV, & Books' subforum with General Chat. Looking at how active both subforums were, we agreed it made sense to merge the two into 'General' since the topics fit together and one wasn't getting way more traffic than the other. We also reorganized the subforums a tiny bit: Renamed "Interests" category to 'General', and placed General Chat, Clubs, and Other Artists under that, and placed Welcome to Paradise, Advice and Brink of your Vision under 'Community'. We originally started splitting up subforums years ago when content was quickly lost because there was so much going on. Now that sites are slower, I'll be regularly seeing what kinds of changes make sense so that the community isn't too splintered.

Total Rep Given: 10,178 Hello folks. Lone here with your November stats. Last month was a total sweep for Green Day as far as the top 10 topics goes. We saw an increase of active members (+6%) and total visitors (+7%) from the month of October as well. To slightly recap: we celebrated the release of 'God's Favorite Band' with a new music video and Green Day concluded their Revolution Radio tour in South America. What's next for our boys? If you're looking for a place to voice your thoughts, we have a poll for that!  P.S. Apologies for not keeping up but I've posted the stats from April-September 2017 so if you're interested, check them out here!

The end of March/beginning of April marks the end of the first leg of the North American tour but they will be back at the end of summer! For you new folks who went to a show, go on over and say hi in the show threads. We had an increase of total visitors (+31%), total posts (+2%), and total reputation given (+1%). We'd like to welcome @Paola17 to the top five active members of the month, joined by four others who made an appearance the last month. That's it for now. Toodle-loo!

Total Rep Given: 13,032 Happy March Greenheads! Last month Billie celebrated his 33rd birthday (for the 13th time) and "revealed" the true American Idiot, Green Day concluded their first European leg of the tour at the O2 Arena, and Trump hangs onto the most popular topic for the second month in a row. We had a decrease in all the stats this month with a loss of 538 active members (-36%), 3256 total visitors (-15%), and 4129 total posts (-32%). However, the boys have kicked off their North American tour this past Wednesday so we'll see an increase in stats this month. Looking forward to chatting and hearing about your experiences at the shows in the tour threads!

Hermione has been promoted to Admin

I'm so excited to announce that @Hermione has been promoted to Admin. I've only been asking her for several years.   She will join Lone and I in helping to run the forum and make decisions about the team and any changes we're looking into.  Hermione has always been very kind and incredibly thoughtful and fair when it came to disagreements either on the team or when discussing issues around the forum. She'll be a wonderful addition to the admins and I'm very excited to have her helping in this new role. Thanks for accepting the offer, Hermione!

Keep an eye out for that! You can tell the tour started up again when some of the tour threads made its way into the top 10 topics! We also had an increase of 17% total visitors, 168% increase in new members, and 112% increase in active members. That's all for now. Hope you enjoyed the first 1/12th of 2017!

New rule added to Guidelines - Don't share PM's

The mod team has agreed to the following addition to our forum guidelines.    We're making this change because it's been a recurring issue lately. People start arguing with each other, someone takes it to PM (which is the best place for it, instead of a back and forth in a topic or elsewhere in the forum), then someone screenshots that and posts it publicly in hopes to embarrass or ridicule the user. It's not only very unhelpful, it's further escalating an issue that will require the mod team to step in.  If you have differences with someone, take it to PM. If they're not interested in talking, just ignore the user. If someone messages you and you find the comments rude or unwelcome, use the Report button. A mod will check the situation out and deal with it. This falls in to line with another guideline People seem to forget that rule, then get upset when they get a warning or a suspension.  The mod team really tries to avoid becoming a ref in these situations. But we want everyone here to feel like they have the space to comment and reply to anything else here without being ridiculed or harassed. When that happens, please just report the comment and let us know when things are getting out of hand. It does no one any good to let issues escalate to the point where people are just bitching at each other and throwing personal insults.    That's all. Have fun. Good night.

New Chat System

The company that makes the forum software, Invision, recently announced that they were no longer going to develop their own chat system. The chat system hasn't had any real updates in quite a long time and they decided they'd be better off putting those resources into making the forums themselves better.  As a result, we've removed the old chat room and have added in a new chat system that you'll find on the bottom right of the window when browsing the forum. Yes, it's meant to be very similar to Facebook chat since that's a system many are already familiar with.   The new chat allows you to chat one on one with your friends Or join the Chat Room with other members   If you want the chat to stay open when you browse around the forum, you can either click the "pop out" arrow on the top right so the chat opens in its own window. Or click the 'gear' for settings and enable "Keep Room Open".    To close a chat window either click on the title bar of the chat window, or click the chat buttons on the chat bar itself.  If you're in the chat and want to report someone just hover over their name and you'll see the following options. Select "Report Spam/Abuse" and chat mods and admins will get a report and be able to look back at that point in the chat. You'll also see that mods/admins can "Silence" a user (a temporary timeout for up to 5 minutes), or kick the user from the chat entirely.   That's the gist of the new system. We hope to see you guys in there and we can find ways to improve this functionality. So far, I honestly think this setup will be much better than the old entirely separate chat system.

Changes to warning system and more!

A couple weeks ago we asked you guys to provide feedback on the forum and the way things were going. Thanks to everyone who sent your feedback. We read them over and talked as a team about the changes we want to make going forward. A suggestion we saw multiple times was that the tour section was a bit unwieldy. We all agreed, and decided to move past tour dates from the RevRad tour into their own subforum. That way when you visit the tour section, you're greeted by the next show that's coming up. We've also decided to change the warning system so that "verbal warns" are now an actual warning point. This will help avoid situations where someone posts something after a warning is given and not knowing about it, and will also help make it clear when a mod is asking a user to stop doing something. These changes are outlined below. Each warning point is active on your profile for 15 days. If you get another warning within that period, your warning point will go up by 1 and include further restrictions each time until you're banned. 1st Warning: No suspension. No restrictions on posting. 2nd Warning: 1 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day. 3rd Warning: 2 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day. 4th Warning: 3 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day. 5th Warning: Banned. When you're warned you'll get a notification with the reason and have to acknowledge it before you can post again. Upon returning from each suspension, there will still be a 10 posts/day limit for 15 days. While a user has a warning point they will not have access to “Clubs”. Duplicate accounts created to get around a suspension will result in another warning point. Thanks again to those of you who sent in your feedback. If you have suggestions or concerns, please reach out to us so we can help find a solution.
