Running List of Changes on QJ
Hey guys the name is Daniel and I will be helping Jon "Sinbad" to get things smoothed out here on the forum part of QJ in my spare time. I eat, breath, and sleep vbulletin which is the software used here on forum. We really want to help QJ be what it is meant to be and I think we can get things smoothed out fast if we all work together. I sleep with a BlackBerry and love forums.
32 years old and live in Houston with wife and 3 year old son.
Jon asked me to give you guys a running list of some of the changes we have done to clean up the forum. I will update as time goes on.
1. Combine Forum Supervisor and Moderator into one Usergroup called QJ MODERATORS. Currently (5) active moderators.
2. Create New section for Admins and Moderators to discuss stuff. Archive old stuff. Fresh start on where to take community.
3. QJ.NET Bloggers & Console Sections archived. Newest post was over 1-1/2" Years ago.
4. Translators Usergroup removed because it has zero members in vbulletin.
5. QJ.Net Helpers Usergroup removed because it has zero members in vbulletin.
5a. Vip Helpers section archived since there have been zero post in 11 months. Helper Usergroup no longer exist.
6. Spiders Usergroup removed because it has zero members in vbulletin.

1. QJ-BOT Modifications - Ok QJ-Bot thing is Done. You only see that QJ-Bot stuff now if you are not logged in. If you are logged in then you will not even ever see any post by QJ-Bot. If you are registered and logged in and try to look at QJ-Bots other post you will see absolutly zero. Try logging out and you will see the "Gaming News and Reviews" section with all the QJ-Bot post pop back up.
2. "QJ Gamers" usergroup created by the combination of "Premium Members" and "Retired Moderators" usergroups together.
There currently 701 users on QJ that are now part of the "Qj Gamers" usergroup. All new members must have minimum 500 post and be active within the QJ Forums to be added into this group in the future. This group has a Private section not visible to members not part of this "QJ Gamers" group.
3. Retired Moderators usergroup discontinued. See Above
4. Premium Members usergroup discontinued. See Above
5. QJ Bloggers usergroup discontinued. Only had 3 members and they were added to "QJ Gamers" usergroup for thier hard work on QJ.

7. PAID Premium Memberships not available any longer for purchase. As the new owner of QJ Jon "Sinbad" felt that member activity is much more important.
8. Credit system removed from QJ - No one was ever going to get the TV that was like 3 million points. QJ-Bot had more point then anyone and even then it was not enough to purchase a game. System removed.
