I've been working on some redesign and restructuring for the new year as well as cleaning out the directory for dead links.
For folks who don't have the patience to make an anti-spambot post before they advertise, there's a plugboard in the footer; throw your 88x31 button in there and enjoy.
Now is the time to make suggestions for anything you think is missing or you'd like to see here. I'm working on packaging up some more of my personal modifications and themes into globally-usable formats; on my list is a fork of Topic Descriptions that will work the way IP-variants do out of the box as well as a 2.0.6 (and theoretically 2.1) out-of-the-box supports for Subaccounts and Custom BBCode.
What have you always wanted in a forum, but don't know how to make it do outside of a hosted solution with doHTML? I will try and solve that for you.

With the success of the anti-spam mods I have installed (except for how it makes Elena's life hard -- sorry, Elena!), I've dropped the posts needed to add to the directory to one, the same as the arcade.
Bots are still trying to register and still trying to break the form, but they can't post, so there's no need to have the moderation queue lag time.
So! Just register, say hello, link us, and add all you'd like.

Some of you may have noticed that occasionally the site is inaccessible. This is because for the last little bit there's been a coordinated spambot attack on various forum systems, which the bots find by googling for the uneditable copyright strings that most software packages (MyBB, phpBB, SMF, etc) require in the footer.
I am doing what I can to mitigate the server load caused by the crazy spam hits, but there are times when it's too much for my sad tiny server and Seiryuu has to take a little nap for a while. Please be patient, and everything will be back to normal as soon as possible.
If you notice anything unusual, like the site won't let you in at all or it freaks out about your logins or IP address, please let me know at gtalk caltan or AIM keimyou and I will fix it for you as soon as possible.

So, as I'm sure you can see by the incredibly spammy 'show new posts' display, I have installed approximately eleventy hojillion new games (and still looking for a working version of Castlevania).
Please bear in mind that games in category "Default" have not yet been tested, but otherwise feel free to go forth and conquer your gainful employment gamefully!

I've spent the morning updating the forum to the latest version of SMF. Hopefully everything is functioning properly, but if you see any weirdnesses (especially with things like the topic description, the ad submissions, or addons like the arcade or gallery), please let me know here so that I may fix them!
Thanks so much for your patience while I was away. Now I am raring to go!
