I like how this thread went NOWHERE. Seriously, a few people took the conversation off track and it just kept going into oblivion. I don't like to complain much about the forums, in fact most of the time I hate it when people do, and when I do I usually make some excuse for the forums so it's not so bad. I won't complain about mod issues, lets be honest, how much does one or too spam-posts that remain undeleted for a few hours bother you (obviously I'm not talking to the mods here), or server speed (ok maybe I will complain about this from time to time). But what's up with the people here recently? It seemed like when I joined, conversations were either intelligent or witty and funny, but now everything's been shot to hell, half the stuff is spam or useless trash, and no one can post anything without half of the replies turning into pleas for modship.

Joe's post pretty much sums up my ideas, too. You all fail miserably! :D

It was inevitable. I think the only way to get things done now is to PM a mod about starting a new thread, and having them moderate and support it. If you leave a thread open for 2 days, people start having side conversations. :?

YEAH! You're all pathetic!

Which is why _I_ should be a mod!


No, I'm just kidding, but it's amazing how much spambots can destroy the whole atmosphere of a forum, by just... causing work.

Could someone maybe put Triton's ideas into motion, then? Please?

As for the lack of intelligent posts, Forum 43 would certainly help. Consider it, will ya guys?

Also, could a mod lock this before I suffer any more? :lol:

Sky, kudos on cleaning up the stickies.
Hey, sup?
