So my dog got run over

 

But there is some blood on his fur and some minor wounds. Would posting said pictures be against forum rules?

I have a question - since in science and other science-related fields, there are direct opposites, can the forum have "anti-moderators?" :D

I think those would be the people breaking rules. These quickly react with the moderators, releasing lock, warn, or ban particles depending on the energy of the reaction. Because they are so reactive, we don't see many of them free-floating.

They're what we call spambots. While most moderators have been here for a while, spambots are quickly and unceremoniously banned.

@Dman979: See what happens when I'm not supervised by a moderator? No telling what ideas I will bring to the forum! :D

Well, I can queue you for off-topic, if you'd like more supervision.

I want to make a thread about my spy mission on the Flat Earther society. But is this legal on this forum? I wont insult any specific people, its just "this is what they believe and here is why its not true and implausible".

If you will delete the last part it would be, perhaps , a bit, possible? 

But overall, discussing conspiracy theories is banned in this forum.

As an a bit of psychologist, I would attempt showing it like a reality show, something both stupid and a bit laughable, yet not offensive, or abusive.

There actually was an entire thread based around discussing conspiracy theories. I dont know if the thread is locked yet or the forum rule was inter grated afterwards. Still have to check.

Ok, after my check, i realized that the thread is still up. Checking the rules now.

It's not a good idea. The subject tends to bring up arguments, and everyone on a space game forum can agree that we don't agree with those people without turning it into a gang-hating/mocking session.

It's how many posts you have. Looking forward to directing some flights soon.

I have a question about tables in the forum:

Is there a way to set a maximal width of a table?

Like in HTML with 

style="max-width:750px;"

When i want a table to have a certain size it will look good in a normal browser but will look really bad when the side is viewed from a smartphone where one would have to scroll horizontally.

PS: i already tried to copy & past a table from another html side into a post but the max width attribute does not have an effect here.

Hello! 

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but is it possible to make a copy of the "How to Get Support" thread pinned to the Add-on Releases forum? Lots of people who have bugs with modded installs will post in the release thread for the mod in question (and rightly so) but a new player might not yet have stumbled upon the support thread yet. 

If the thread (even just a locked thread with the OP copied would do Nickey) was pinned on the Add-on Releases forum, it would make it a bit easier to refer to, and possibly increase visibility for newer forum users.

^ that would be very helpful.

Also, I have a question about the way you moderators see reports and reported posts. When a report first shows up, do you see the report comment and the flagged post at the same time or just the report comment?

I have asked NathanKell to copy his post there, so he gets the credit and likes he deserves for having made the announcement in the first place. 

 

And, done. Thanks for the suggestion.

Don't know any "official" answer, but if I had to guess, it might be this one:

...currently 35K posts, or a bit over 1% of the total of all posts in all KSP forums ever.

Wouldn't be surprised if there might be some "Forum Games" threads that get super-long, but Forum Games posts don't count towards folks' post count anyway and the signal-to-noise ratio is pretty low there, so I'm deliberately ignoring that one.  :)
