    Changes and Friendly Reminders

    First and foremost, I want to apologize for the lack of updates this site has had over the past few months. Myself, as well as some of the other staff, got caught up in the "real world", which left little time for us to really focus on the site. In recent weeks, we have finally been able to get back in the swing things so you'll see more updates coming soon, especially in the new year.

    We hope that you guys have enjoyed the recent additions to our Award Badges. I plan on adding just a few more to the list in the next few days, but after that we're going to hold off on any major additions. There is still quite a lot of badges that are pretty easy that haven't been earned or have a low amount of members that have earned them. I want to see that list get a little bit more full before any more requests of "MOAR BADGES!" are fulfilled.

    Links: We have been pretty lenient on them since we opened. That's going to change now, and without going into a huge speech; starting today, any links to personal site will be deleted.

    Language: I don't know how many times I have to remind you all, but after today, we're going to bring down the ban hammer. We consider ourselves a very light PG-13 board. We know sometimes that using a few choice words helps emphasize your emotions on a forum (ass, bitch). I'm talking of the F-bombs and other words. Rule of thumb, if it's ***'d out, don't use it. Here's how it's going to work. First offense, warning. Second offense, 3 day ban. Pretty cut and dry, and I hope all of you can respect that.

    2012 is a big year for Orlando United. It's techinically our "First" anniversary on Feb 29th, so we plan on doing something big. More details to come later.

    Also, the main site. It's going to change, and many of you are going to very happy. ;)

    I hope everyone has a happy holiday, and a fantastic new year. Happy Posting!

    Can you please define personal sites? Many sometimes post a link to corporate or related theme park sites to offer credit to a rumor or report. Others put links to their image galleries. What is the limit?

    Say you, Mr. Teebin, own "Teebin's Site of Facts & Fun" and you want to post it on the forums. That won't be allowed.

    If you see a rumor on Screamscape, and think it's worth sharing, then you're golden.

    I'm still a little bitter over Hop...

    That said, I'm looking forward to whatever's in store.

Orlando United is a website founded upon the desires of all Orlando theme park fans. We at Orlando United believe fans should be united in their discussions, ideas, reviews, questions, or any other related activities without having to feel intimidated or unwelcome in their searches. Orlando United was made to bring together fans of the Universal Orlando resort and allow them to discuss without strict rules, unruly opposition, or any other difficulties. We believe that while our initial mission has been a success, we plan to grow each day and add to the intellectual, sophisticated discussion that occurs hourly on our message boards. We intend to be the friendliest of websites, welcoming all members to join us in helping the mission become a successful one. We intend to keep this promise to our members, and to our casual guests because Orlando United is a one-of-a-kind website experience. Our initiative began February 2nd, 2008 and continues to this day. One day, we hope all current and future members can rejoice on our site and let the world know, we are United.
