    Do people that report a lot of things that don't lead to an infraction, will they get one themselves?

    If you get tempban and you have more than 150 PMs do the PMs disappear?

    200 is the limit, isn't it?

    That said, from personal experience, no. It just won't let you receive anymore.

    That said, why does that rule even exist? Its like its there just to be annoying. Not that there's a problem with bans being annoying, but this particular restriction seems a bit pointless. I personally don't look through past PMs very often anyways, so its basically just inconveinience of having to hit "Delete" but still. I don't see a real purpose.

    I always thought it was just an overlook and nobody ever really thought to change it.

    The PMs remain, you simply don't have the space to send/receive any, so you have to delete some to free up space.

    What's been happening within the past hour (5:00 pm EDT - 5:55pm EDT) that's causing the "server is too busy" message. It's certainly not the backups happening since it's happening outside of those hours?

    Why did they change civfanatics.net being where they posted messages about site maintenance and down servers?

    In a previous server move it became impractical to keep the .net server because it could no longer be considered reliable.

    What is up with the server? If it goes on much longer, they may not be able to stop that all important first goal.

    I wanted to rename an old thread of mine. But when I tried to rename it it only renamed the OP. Why?

    (I sent a report post for a moderator to do that.)

    You only have a relatively short time during which you can rename your thread. (5 minutes? days?) After that, you have to ask a moderator.

    Yes so I reported the thread and asked a mod to change the title.

    You don't have to use this thread as a diary Aimee.
