    Default Backroom Truce: 24th Dec - 1st Jan

    In Backroom tradition, starting on the 24th of December, the Backroom will be closed until after the New Year has started.

    Whatever plans, celebrations or shenanigans you are up to over this period, we the staff team wish you well and hope to see you return in the new years with all the exciting updates and news over the week.

    Plenty of time to brush up on those skills.

    Obligatory protest against it.

    Rude to force a break on everyone just because a part of Christianity celebrate holidays during that part of the year. It's an international forum, with atheists, jews, muslims, hindus, orthodox christians and other faiths, denominations and beliefs.

    This is the .Org's version of stamping on civil liberties.

    And as the aforementioned Hindu, I feel that this truce is more in the spirit of the values that Christmas represents rather than having anything to do with religion.
    And that is something everyone can appreciate.

    You're not helping my case. Just pretend you're oppressed.

    Hay! I am open. How about the 27th? If you are too drunk on 31 or 1 Jan to post, NBD.

    I would be in favor of only keeping the Drunkards tavern open.

    I think it's because the mods will be too busy to moderate this forum during the holidays.
    I suggest having more mods of other religions, such as a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, etc. to work as substitutes.
    Wooooo!!!

    I heard something that in the early days, there were a few topics which "ruined Christmas" for some people too, and due to the busy season-time, the mods were not around to moderate it...

    Though, the thread is in anniversary of the unofficial truce of World War 1, not Christmas itself.

    Only if they are as chill as Beskar and Hooahguy.

    Seriously, we lucked out with our mods, last thing we need is to give a zealot the ban button.

    Don't worry. You're only annoying and clueless. You can't get banned for that.
