GOLD TOKEN Iron fisted moderation.  "Dear Leader" management.  The most prominent feature of GoldToken is its maniacal control over its discussion forums.  If you type "omg", for example, the omg turns red and the Send button grays out.  Conversations that develop an off color tenor are instantly expunged and replaced with stern warnings of "further action".  Gold Token once attempted an "anything goes" forum.  No topic was to be off limits.  The new forum was online for about ten minutes, as I recall, before being permanently dismantled.  Discussion of the short lived forum was then curtailed. OMG!

GoldToken enjoys a large, very sociable membership that doesn't seem to mind the Orwellian atmosphere.  Exchange cake recipes, discuss your critical ailments, and receive electronic sympathy cards.  GoldToken has a large number of abstract games, a great many of which are minor variants of Checkers. 

GoldToken has a remarkable scarcity of good players, considering its large membership.  It has now formed affiliations with professional game associations in an effort to turn around its sappy image, but it's got a long road ahead of it.  The master plan is to create a hub for world class players who are well mannered and compliant - all five of them.
