Normally as a website get bigger the quality of conversation goes down quickly. This happened a little bit with the geek.

But lately the quality of dialouge seems to be going up! Or am I just less crabby than a few months ago?

Or are we just out of the post Christmas new user phase?

Or the redesign chased off the trolls?

Good Job Geeks, keep on surprising me!

I actually think the posting volume has been a down for the past few weeks. I haven't noticed an increase in discussion quality, but I haven't been around as much myself, so I wouldn't have noticed... Boy, I hope that isn't the correlation right there! surprise

We're still getting about 1000-2000 messages posted per day. I think that more discussion has moved to the actual game pages, which was our intent with the redesign.

Oh, and we have the best moderators who squash all trolls with a huge rock.

All the trolls? How do they get close enough to the trolls with laser eyes to smash them with rocks?

A catapult and a trebuchet are not the same.

If it's one thing that Games Workshop can teach you, other than how to overprice bits 'o metal, it is this:

A trebuchet throws big heavy things that smash troops in indifference to their armor.

A catapult throws screaming enchanted skulls that cause opposing troops to piss themselves and run away.

Keep an eye out for a new VW commercial that features a trebuchet. It tosses the car a disappointingly short distance, though. Its more of a fancy way to smash a car into the ground than a proper trebuchet.
