    Default Lets just call this the dead & duck

    2 votes cast in 2 polls, not a single new thread or a reply from 4am to noon the following day, how sad is that?

    come on guys (and gals)

    Trouble is there are loads of other sections to post in, If its funny it has to go in jokes and bitching, if its stupid it gets hossed, anything technical goes in one of the other sections. Even the picture threads got there own section now.

    If there was a politics section the D&D would be nearly dead.

    Why do threads get hossed from here if you are allowed to post any bo||ox?

    thats a good point, but sometimes its because they could be deemed offensive (like cams room), sometimes its because they are a little too adult (like cj's "painters are in" theread) but mostly its because they are not just bollox, but complete and utter total bollox (like Lee Elwoods posts when he gets in pissed as a twat at the weekend) doesnt mean thay aren't funny or that people wont respond to them, i'd guess it just depends on the particular mods mood at the time.

    I must admit, i've hos'd very few threads from the d&d (most seem to come from the console forums or spammers in buy,sell & trade or swapshop)

    Hope that helps a bit

    cant understand your problems m8, the forum is running smoothly (except the df$ bit), good to see you followed flips advice and posted it in the bug reports, hopefully someone will look at it for you, dumb though this sounds have you tried logging out (at the top) then going into your cookies folder and deleting your df cookies then come back and log in again (make sure that you have someones email addy just in case)

    i've heared that sometimes that works as the cookies can get buggy sometimes, also try coming out of hidden mode, dont think it should make any difference but it might, look for the trainers thread as that allows multiple voting

    cos flip was banned for going over the top on the bs side then n0k1a joined and carried on where flip left offto the extent that flip could n0k1a could have been one of 2 people kingdong or flip a quick ip check shows :

    EDIT : ip's removed as promised below.

    now how likely is it that someone has the same ip, joins just after another gets banned and posts in a similar way?

    anyway that should answer both you questions, and n0k1a wont be banned as long as he behaves and doesnt give us a repeat of his previous incarnations little episode.

    Clear enough?

    ABCMan

    once you've both responded i'll remove the ip's

    But the IP thing says it all.

    he went offline shortly after this was posted, i dont know who changed his status, but its accurate

    but it has been suspected for a while, but no one bothered to check it up untill today (4me2 checked it out and got the ip's).

    As i said, we dont object as long as we dont get a rerun of the previous episode that got him banned, after all it wasnt exactly a serious breach of the rules that got him banned, its those who commit a serious breach of the rules who we keep out (or at least do our best to).
