    The problem with requiring so much activity on the forums is that it completely throws the concept of "quality over quantity" out the window.

    I've been noticing a lot of that with the posting by staff here, who are just trying to keep up with these requirements, but end up making almost every thread go totally off topic.

    Indeed it is Anna! It's amazing to think that just a few months ago POR just was starting out! And now instead of being a normal player, we're the one's hosting the events! It's amazing to see how much everyone can accomplish when working together here! :D !
