So what exactly does the name "allynfolksjr" mean?
Answer:
That's quite a complicated story, actually. Back a long time ago, when AOL was starting to spread, my family decided to start exploring the large network of tubes called the internet. This was in 1996. So we had to think of a main account name, and allynfolks seemed like a good idea, because we live in Allyn. So after about six months, I decided to get my own screenname, and I decided that since I was the child, adding "jr" would be a good idea and make sense. Well, it stuck, and I've been using it ever since, approaching ten years. And We dumped AOL in 2000, but still use the name for most of my IM and forum accounts. I use the nick "Nikky" on short nick IRC networks and "allynfolksjr" on long nick networks.

Wow, I have a bunch of free time on my hands, can I be an Administrator?
Answer:
Short answer: no. We're not looking for one, and if we were, we would either ask you if you wanted the job, or we would have an open position and post about it on the main page. However, that being said, if you do have suggestions for content or such, by all means contact one of the Staff directly or send an email here and they'll take your idea into suggestion. If you submit an article or news, of course you will receive all proper credit, and if you have enough good work, you may just become a Content Manager.

I found a glaring bug, regression, or other error in the site supporting code, what's up?
Answer:
Actually, it is your fault it isn't working correctly, and if it was a coding error, be sure to blame someone like Z. Because I never make mistakes and then forget where I put the backups, ever.
*Snap*
I mean...You most likely have encountered an error on my part, I tend to make those from time to time. If the forum starts sending random files to you on an odd port, or if it appears that some kind of black helicopters are flying over your house, that may be my mistake. So yes, I may be an idiot sometimes, but the stuff I do *generally* works.

I found some sort of error on the site, but it isn't there now, and I can't recreate it, what is it?
Answer:
That would be a "Removable Discontinuity." Ignore it, because it was probably a figment of your overactive imagination

I see that you have some sites hosted here, can I be hosted too?
Answer:
Well, if your site is calculator related, you could ask in the 'Site' section of the forum if you could please be hosted.

Are the various "companies," "corporations," and "industries" at this site really calculator-game companies?
Answer:
No, it is just that it looks cool to some people. Namely, the people who provide themselves such silly names.

Do I have to pay for calculator games?
Answer:
Of course not! TI charges money for some of their math applications, but 99.9% of all other programs are free to download.
