Leah,
thank-you so  much for creating such an amazing community. I have just kind of realized how long I have been going on this site, wow time flys. Craftster has really helped to shape who I have become.

Leah, although I don't really know you, it's sad to see you go. I love this place so much, and I'm so grateful to you for it. I hope you're happy and successful in whatever you do Smiley

Wade, welcome! Aside from the pointy stick threats, we're all very nice Wink


P.S. Asian Porn Man? Would someone please clue me in on that? Lol.

Who wants to tell it?! Cheesy

All I can say is that A LOT of changes have happened to Craftster's policies since the extremely and unbelievably well-endowed NAM (naked asian man) paid us a visit a few years ago.

For example, did you know that at one point someone could just sign up for Craftster and send out gajillions of Private Messages to anyone they want without any restrictions?

And did you know you used to be able embed a picture of whatever you want in a Private Message?

And did you know that entire Private Message itself (including any images in it) used to be emailed to the recipient rather than just the "You have a private message! Click here to see it." email you get now?

So, um, yeah the reason why none of the above is allowed anymore is that one day looooooooots of Craftster members woke up to a very surprising email containing a picture of very surprising naked man in their inbox. And then this spammer moved on to signing up for various usernames and posting this one lovely picture all over the forums too. And every time we found a way to stop him, he found a new way to get through. (This is also why now require people to post 10 times before being allowed to post pics.)

So, thank you NAM, for tightening up our security around here! Cheesy And for enlightening us with the existance what is most certainly a, um, record-breaking-ly large appendage. Cheesy

Batgirl made an awesome NAM valentine for everyone one year. I wonder if I can find that? Batty, are you reading the thread? Can you post it?

Here it is! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152591.msg1516378#msg1516378

Luckily, batgirl has it going on with photoshop. There is no way that guitar alone was going to cover this guy's goodies.  Cheesy
