Apparently something went down yesterday regarding nickname changes and people changing their nicknames.

I'm not 100% sure what really happened, though Mammy was attempting to explain it to me.

I took a moment to talk with Helios, we're going to allow free nickname changes for the next 24 hours or so. You should take this time period to change your name to what it you want it to be. Please do not abuse this freedom! We're trying to be nice here.

I'm not entirely sure what Mammy did in regards to the Shop and the Shop item. I'll have to speak with him at a later date about that.

However the Shop system will be scrapped during the SMF 2.0 upgrade, as it would take a lot of effort to rebuild an addon that serves no real purpose for ZFGC. All SMF addon's will have to be rebuilt for the most part anyway, so if we do find a purpose for the shop in one way or another, aspects of it will probably be added back in.

Have fun and sorry about the lack of consistency and continuity regarding the subject of Nickname Changes.

How do we change our name? (Stupid question, maybe?)

Grimace is the demiurge, the creator. From him all things in McDonaldland have sprung. He is not a sin, he's not a menu item, he's just Grimace. He exists. He rolls his lidless eyes and flaps his lipless mouth, formless and terrible, a protean idiot thing from the depths of pre-history.

So give me you're code and add mine:
Code: 4296-2644-3642

Sorry guys.  I just don't have the time anymore for the CP.  Working two jobs and just having a couple hours to play my Wii and continue learning programming just is not leaving me free time to focus on the CP.  I feel that it's my obligation to step aside as Level Director.  It's just a time issue.  Since I am also a global mod that also takes some of my focus from the CP.  So, it's nothing against anybody or what not, I'm just out of time anymore it seems.  Sorry again.
wtf, i remember posts that used to have content explaining reasons rather than ways to get rises out of users with a youtube video and no reason as to why!


How to post maturely:
epic intolerance, I caught aids from the stupidity in your post

why not issue everyone 5 opinion tokens for each year, if they voice their opinion without presenting a token- they can be legally murdered
Make sure every post you make is mature like these two (and there's many more). You just can't beat ZFGC's friendliness and maturity!

SMF 2.0 has a lot of nice features regarding board access, post counts and member groups.. check them out. :)

I believe mods/admins want to make a name changing policy.

If you want to see SMF 2.0 in action, just head over to The Void, register an account, and talk with us.  We now use SMF 2.0, so no shop and its all a tad different from this.  Its nice though(especially the administration and moderation centers).

At our forums, we found that the shop was unnecesary and it wasnt that big of a deal.

Stop advertising here >_>


Anyways so how are we going to work around that? I know some people here don't even want to view the spam boards and they don't want spam posts in the recent posts box.

I believe smf 2.0 has an ignore boards feature built in, we'd probably have spam set as being ignored by default and you can unignore it yourself.
