    I fully support this. If TAP wins the election, I will push for this to be implemented.

    Actually, I think Mikstzu was the original inspiration for the drunk tank, however it was never actually used on him. Get it right, newbie.

    Well if it was never used on him, how would any non-staffer have known about it then?

    Fine, it was first publicly used and thus part of staff policy because of HOOTERS. It's always about HOOTERS, to some degree.

    Sorry, but the drunk tank is nothing we want to encourage.

    REALLY??

    Nah I'm kidding Raistlin you're alright. That word just always looks so weird. Like non-congressmaner or non-presidenter.

    At least he doesn't capitalize the S in staff.

    Why would anyone do that? Unless they're talking about the specific forum, in which case it would be capitalized (like "General Chat" or "Lounge").

    Oh, I know. I was being facetious based on my boring stint there.

    I was taking a stab at Loony BoB who does capitalize the S in the word staff, but now that I ran a search on him it seems he's quit doing it. I.. I don't know what to say end of an era.

    The drunk tank did used to have a title but we took it away so it wouldn't encourage people

    I doubt it would really encourage anyone. Though seeing that title on someone might well spark a thousand questions from curious members just about someone who is drunktanked for a night, so in that sense I understand the lack of a usergroup title.

    I still do it sometimes! I'm sure I do. Probably in chat and stuff. I capitalise a fair few things, mind you. I am, after all, a capitalist.
