    I am serious. You've offered to help, we need help with 3 things:
    1. Writing content articles.
    2. Posting news items.
    3. Coding (PHP, SQL)

    Now given the overwhelming majority of your posts are in Politics and GD, with only a miserable 20 posts in News & Content, it's a legitimate question.

    ... or how do you envision yourself helping? As I've said, Infinitron can set you up with news posting access.

    I have one question, though:
    How will any of this help with the law related problem in Australia?

    I can't help with coding much but news and content I could theoretically do. Depends entirely on what form that content should take. You must be aware I don't exactly see eye to eye with Infinitron and the news he posts.

    What makes me suspicious is the fact your team refused content in the form of user reviews before, specifically those that happened to be less than positive. Smells like a setup to me.

    That said, none of this is relevant to the issue of censorship and the sites legality.

    On the posting news items, I have another question:
    Back when Roqua was still posting here, he used to complain that we didn't have news articles on the "good" rpgs(aka rpgmaker clones) he liked. Knowing that, what is to avoid someone to post rpgmaker clones on front page? Infi will gatekeep what is posted there?
    On the other hand, if Infinitron, or someone else, gatekeep what is being posted there, people will just give up since they think they are wasting time writing news articles that are not going to be posted.
    If you really want help on that I think it's fair to explain what is going to be allowed and what is not. I also consider those dev diary quite annoying when you post every single one of them(back in PoE 1 and 2 it was fucking annoying), might as well just post a resume of the last few and the links for people to look it if they want.
    It's sad when you go to the front page and there is only articles on the same game, but it also sucks that no one wants to help so that we have more interesting games being mentioned. Front page do help some devs since they don't need to look around the forum to see if their indie game is being talked here, so they get expositions, they post here and we learn more about their game.

    Short of spending thousands on legal advice, and even then, that can only be resolved by a court of law. Facebook is an American website, owned by an American company, with mostly American employees.

    None of that stopped the Australian High Court.

    The internet is still the wild west when it comes to legislation. Historically I wouldn't have given a shit about our little RPG hobbyist website. But it's all fun and games until the Police rock up on your doorstep and start asking questions about the Codex.

    If it gives you peace of mind, make a fundraiser to pay for legal advice. It's not strictly time sensitive so you can figure out an estimated sum and let it go on for as long as needed.

    You can't be the only site owner with concerns, surely there is some group that has already done some legwork on the nitty gritty law bullshit that's inevitable.

    just tell the bastard to transfer ownership to a kwanzanian shell corp or one of the kwanzanians on the forum

    does this forum even generate any money I doubt it bahahahahah half the users are fucking Eastern Europeans and Brazilians who make $20 a day or something retarded like that

    maybe he could have transferred it to you if you weren’t such a transparently jewish worm unworthy of trust

    Wait, so what happens to you if you're an American citizen living in America and you get convicted by an Australian court for Internet memes? How can they enforce their decision?

    Can people stop wasting their time trying to give advice to DU? What he is going to do is ignore everyone, delete GD, install draconian anti-"hatespeech" RULEZZZ, probably add some diversity to the mod team, and preside over the rotting corpse of this forum while patting himself on the back for being so smart and getting a heart-attack every time a police car drives by.

    That can't be right, it would be too bizarre. I can't imagine the Kwan government extraditing its own citizen to some other country because he didn't delete memes about negros on his website or some shit.

    Just because they go down that route doesn't mean they will succeed. If the US government is sane, it will laugh in their face, tell them to stop wasting time and fuck off. Of course, we have Biden leading the US government, so the "sane" part of the equation is rather in doubt.

    Reminder that I am Jewish and willing to give the goyim a firm, but fair hand. :M
    Anonymous incorporation would probably solve the extradition issue.

    It all depends on how much effort they're willing to go through to end a website with 150 computer nerds on it. I'm guessing not much. Sending officers to oppress locals is something they do all the time. But the people who handle international stuff are usually busier with more important things than trying to track down the owner of some rando company in Wyoming to stop RPG NEETs from saying n'wah.

    edit:
    If he doesn't want to hire a lawyer, incorporating in Wyoming costs around $300 (if you include the extras most sites provide) and can be done in as little as 24 hours. IncFile, Doola etc can help with this, and with setting up a registered agent, a US bank account and all the tax info that goes along with that.

    I can only assume that the reason he doesn't do this is because, as an Australian, he prefers to live dangerously. :M
