It was a play on my previous online alias, which I used since I was about 16.

Do you need any mods? What are the requirements?

Do you mean moderators or phpbb modifications?

Moderators are picked by admins based on deemed suitability for the role. In general I look out for experience at moderating, helpfulness, friendliness, temperament, age, activity, how much I know about them, etc. Community Managers are democratically elected as long as they meet some requirements. Admins have to be seasoned moderators and good/trusted friends. At the moment there is little need for any more staff though....

phpBB3 MODs are picked based on compatibility, usefulness and ease of installation. This is done sparingly because it complicates updates and installations of other features.

Most users ever online was 67 on 27 Sep 2015 05:25


I've been very curious about that number, is that a bug or did that really happen? That's more than the number of registered members, could have been a lot of guests at the same time :[shock]

It was caused mostly by a bunch of Xovibots, which have been user-agent blocked since.

I would like to ask you, for how long have you been identifying yourself as an asexual? Also, how have you discovered asexuality?(if it's too personal, then ignore me) :[:)]

I found out AVEN when I was about 18 or 19 and not long from then I realised I was asexual. It was after an ex-friend mentioned it.

Something about you seems really familiar. So I have a few questions. 1. What aliases did you have on AVEN? 2. Were you involved on the aromantic thread there? 3. What other forums did you frequent before?

1. I can't remember all that I may have used, but my first was Drazo and I've used "The D" and "DeAreEiSaidOh" or something like that.

2. I started the first "The aromantic thread" ages ago before there was a forum for it and kinda helped campaign for aromantics to be included and for a sub-forum at least.

3. A few no longer existing forums, Aroplane and the rest I can't remember. If you want to know more PM me it, or if you found something let me know and I'll confirm it....or delete it. :SB>:D
