What happens where not a teen anymore? Will we just have to leave?
Members who joined as teens are allowed to stay as long as they want c: most do end up leaving because they don't feel connected to the younger userbase but we don't kick them out

Hmm while on the topic of age what do/would you do with someone who joins at an older age?
I'm merely curious X3

Sorry you get noob mod for this one.

It essentially depends on the situation. If the member who joined has already established themselves amongst the forum then we usually let them stay considering they have probably made friends or are understanding and considerate of the rules.
Of course, we check on every member of the site before they get access just to go over the basics and have an understanding of who we are allowing on the site.
There technically isn't a rule disallowing older aged members. However we tend to be more lenient with younger members because the older you are the more responsible you should be.

Did the insert quote button ever work? or is it just decoration?
I've seen that button on other forums that look like FT and it's broken on those too.

I've never gotten it to work myself. Unfortunately that's a bug in SMF itself so we don't have much control over it nor the ability to fix it

Are you talking about the Quote button on peoples' posts?

If so, yes it actually used to work, and it was magical. Also one of the things we never appreciated until it was gone.

Is every ban on this site a permanent one?
Can admins see who's hidden?

It depends
Everything is done on a case by case basis, so it really depends on the offence but we like to give second chances with temporary bans when possible but we utilize permanent bans when necessary

Does stateing ones own opinion on a subject count as sympathy for something may or may not have something to with the subject, and who gets to make the judgement on weather or not they were sympathizing?

Yes we can, mods can't but admins can. We rarely pay attention to it though so it's not a big deal :fox-:P:

I'm not entirely understanding what your asking but I'll do my best to answer. Im assuming your referring to our one strike policy? In which case a lot of things depend on context but saying things like "I like or support x hate group" does typically count as sympathizing/believing/supporting etc as why would  someone like/support a group like the westbro baptist church for example and want to vocalize their fondness of them if they don't believe in it?
As for who makes these decisions, it's a discussion between all staff members. We have a series of staff-only boards where we hold in depth conversations and make our decisions

Also, even permanent bans may have the option to appeal in the future. We do understand people change and realize what they did wrong (and yes, people HAVE been unbanned from a permaban before, though I wouldn't say its common)

And sometimes you have to appeal more than once to actually get your point across RIP.

Its not about "getting your point across". Also, there's no magical number of appeals. If we let someone back, its once we believe they've changed and matured enough. Appealing multiple times to try and " explain" things without actual changes does nothing.

Please don't spread misinformation.

Is there a way to delete your account? I'm not planning on it I'm just curious because somebody seems to have just completely disappeared.

Not as a standard user, but it is within an Admin's power to do so. That being said, we've never actually deleted accounts as it messes with post counts and the like.

What does it mean when a member or staff is doing an "unknown action"?
I've had a lot of people ask me this but I never know what to tell them

Not sure exactly, but if I had to guess it's probably doing something in the staff sections of the site.
