    due to community feedback, we are considering putting any plans for interface modules on temporary hiatus, and keeping any moderation duties limited to mars, phobos, and deimos.

    the governance node was always intended to be used by inhabitants to propose policy changes, discuss the governance of gV, and to scrutinise administrative actions. however, due to its location in 'admin', it was largely seen as an announcement node. with the aim of remedying this we have relinquished the governance node to the community. the governance node is not a flame-ground. to avoid the inevitable, all mcp threads within the governance node are marked read-only. if desired, one may post a new thread to address any issues raised within those threads.
    'feedback' has been renamed to better reflect its intended purpose, technical issues relating to gV.
    threads have been relocated between both forums.

    faced with the task of issuing multiple infractions for destroying the 'order' thread, the mcp has instead made it read-only. due to inhabitants' oft-demonstrated inability to stay on-topic and resist fighting amongst themselves, we are making a move away from posting news threads. if there is something to report we will likely communicate it via the .plan file.

    standby for maintenance.
    expect the cache to be dumped and the styles to be rebuilt within minutes. (this is what is happening when gV pages go blank for a couple minutes).
    it may be a good idea to paste comments into a txt document prior to submission until this maintenance is complete.

    in an effort to address recent comments along the lines of 'sometimes i am not aware of the node i am replying to', a graphic is now displayed in the three major editor locations:

    we hope that this will be of assistance.

    the developments within the thread Earth to gotVirtual... are not only disappointing, they are disgusting. the thread is well beyond redemption and, as a result, has been marked read-only.
    we were hoping to phase in the infraction system after governance had gained traction and the community had an opportunity to provide input. sadly, this will not be the case.

    consider this due notice. the infraction system is now live. those that accumulate too many infraction notices within too short a time will experience the consequences of their actions.

    today is a big update day for gV.
    expect the cache to be dumped and the styles to be rebuilt multiple times over the coming hours (this is what is happening when gV pages go blank for a couple minutes).
    this update will include underlying software (linux, apache, mysql, php, assorted libraries and dependencies, etc), as well as a core update to 1.01, numerous ancillary updates to xf, and much template work.
    it may be a good idea to paste comments into a txt document prior to submission until this maintenance is complete.

    please note that use of 'bot accounts' are not smiled upon. any account that we believe to be a bot account will be permanently disabled.
    we must admit we are not very comfortable with the idea of using alt accounts to post inflammatory commentary full stop.
    an alt account used in a good-natured way is one thing. using one to engage in flamewars, personal attacks, incendiary discussion or the like is another matter altogether.
    the concerned account has been disabled until such time the community can reach a consensus on an applicable standard for alt accounts. earth will initiate this thread soon, provided that inhabitants have not already posted an appropriate thread within the governance node.

    it has also been suggested that we should extend 'username amnesty' to those that tested out the username function.
    although inhabitants were clearly warned of the 180 day cooldown, we will be happy to revert them to their initial username if they make their desire known.

    updated the community standards to reflect the defacto alt policy, as well as to update pornography policy to include all nsfw nodes.

    account 226 has been removed as it is the alt of a 'banned' user.

    inhabitant 229 has been removed due to violation of the Community Standards.
    they have a primary and a months old alt. they were given a lot of leeway with their prior alt, but due to recent developments and the change to the community standards we cannot allow inhabitant 229 to be used this way.
    inhabitant 229 is welcome to use either of their previous accounts as they are both in good standing.
    alt abuse - it is not permitted to use a secondary account (alt) to flame or to stalk, harass, bully, or otherwise violate the community standards.

    i hope this clears something up: yes, alts are detected rather well.

    in addition to the uninteresting work, profiles have been altered to display ban information.
