Lemon Demon forum
The Lemon Demon forum uses version 1.3 of the PunBB forum software and has more than three thousand members. Since its creation, it has changed hosts several times, undergone a few major glitches, and gone offline for more than a month. The Illemonati Backup Forums (later renamed Internet Stonehenge) were created by LÆB to counteract this.
On October 5th 2007, the title of the forum was changed to “the Lemon Demon foreman”. This prank was reverted the next day.
Neil Cicierega and Alora Lanzillotta are the administrators of the forum, and Psyne, LÆB, FaeryKore, Ming, Emmy and mattgcn are moderators. Chloe, Natalia and Juttman used to be mods but the former two were demoted due to inactivity and the latter left the forum. Chad was a mod at one point, but only as a prank.
When it was first created, LDF only had an announcements forum, a Lemon Demon discussion forum, a forum for help in purchasing Lemon Demon albums, and Pastamania. When it became more popular (within the next day or two), an off-topic forum and a games forum were added.
On January 20, 2008, the descriptions of all the forums were changed, and the LDF’s tagline was changed from “Lemon Demon discussion and hobnobbing” to “Lemon Demon fun in fine forum form”.
The Lemon Demon forum has always had at least one category designated for an unusual, whimsical, narrow purpose; originally Pastamania, but it has since been closed and others added. The transition from Pastamania to the Happy Days fanfiction forum was brief and mournful.
- the Pastamania forum (February 1, 2006 – January 20, 2008): “This forum has one rule: You are only allowed to post pastamania.jpg.”
- the Happy Days fanfiction forum (January 20, 2008 – August 14, 2009): “The forum has only one rule: You are only allowed to post short works of Happy Days fanfiction.”
- Mirror Universe (August 14, 2009 – present): “In this forum up is down, black is white, everybody hates Lemon Demon, and Alora has a goatee.”
- Tank Engine Role Play (April 26, 2011 – present): “This forum is for Thomas the Tank Engine role playing. You must never break character or continuity.”
