Dare I ask WHAT is Penguin Battlefortress?
Barebones, a bunch of dudes with penguin avatars used the (now disabled) ability to move threads in order to create a series of threads as a flying battlefortress and then drop it into other boards like a bunch of penguiny corsairs.

Yeah, he's a banned spammer. Normally we'd delete this thread too, but people were having too much fun with it by the time we got here.
Bay 12 Blood Bowl I apparently host now.

Well, that sounds like fun for the first seven minutes or so.
How long did that last?

That's... pretty awesome actually, although, the potential for abuse is pretty obvious even by you just sharing the concept.

Don't let my sign up date fool you into thinking I haven't been around here for a while. Thats just when I became active.

First wandered here properly in 2014 I think, certainly downloaded 40.14 and maybe even older versions (Though only 40.x and later) and looked at some of the community forts.

Mobile penguin battlefortress sounds like a laugh, and something you would expect to find in something like RA2.

PTW, dinosaurs are !!FUN!!

I've been lurking for a year or two before joining the forums in 2014, I've been mostly active in FG&RP (though my activity had somewhat declined this year). I'm one of the people responsible for the mess that was Doomforests, and that was the only community fortress I took part in. Haven't really contributed to the forums besides that.

snip

That's mostly right except people are still allowed to move threads between forums. I'm not sure why people keep saying otherwise, especially since it's a pretty regular occurence for new people to post DF questions in this forum and we always tell them to move the thread. Just go to the bottom of any of your topics and there'll be a little move button next to the lock button.

I dunno. I can't move my game threads.

Just tried it, and yes it seems to work.
Not sure about any of the factors though.

I think if someone founds a new floating meme fortress, the banlist may grow slightly.
