    I've been on here for many years and I feel its going, if not already gone a direction I don't agree with anymore. it used to be fun being on here all the time helping out but I feel its just not the same.

    It might just be me, but I feel this forum is a more a high school drama tech sight. Most threads I see that get replied to, or threads I reply to usually follow with sarcasm and trolling not more helpful information. Someone may state the same thing, it used to be where this was okay, you were backing up the previous post by agreeing, now, you better get your flame suite on. Sure its the internet, so don't get butt hurt but it used to be a friendly community with lots of helpful information, it's just not the same anymore.

    Farewell tpu'ers

    p.s

    Thanks for everything wizzard, you always talked to me when I messaged you and you have always done an awesome job keeping this site up-to-date with the latest information. Running a site this large is a massive task and you did this quite well. So thank you for everything.

    I'm sorry to see you go Freaksavior. You've been a great addition to the site, and are an incredibly knowledgable and helpful person. I hope that at some point you reconsider and come back.

    Although I'm new to TPU(only a few days ago I registered)this doesn't mean TPU wasn't in my bookmark!
    I've been hangin here for the last three years but I never took the courage to sign up just for the reasons u mentioned but let me tell u this:
    IT IS THE INTERNET AND EVERYTHING,but in all this trolling and shit TPU is still "heaven on the web"
    Sorry to lose u mate but while leaving think about this: +1 for trolls -1 tech community.....

    if you leave it will just worsen the situation you are describing, we need members like you to stay for that exact reason. senior members if you will.

    I'll be sad to see you go, and I sincerely hope you reconsider and come back.

    a bientôt j’espère mon ami :toast: merci pour tous

    This always happens when something grows massive, it just doesn't feel like home anymore because you have to share it with so many people and then the rudeness and carelessness comes into play as consequences.

    Damn, sorry to see you go freaky. :( :(

    You're one of TPU's best members. Perhaps instead of leaving altogether, you could just take a little break?

    Communities of any kind inevitably do change unfortunately, it's just part of life.

    Hope to see you back here soon. :)

    I tend to agree with freaksavior. When I come across some threads, the OP will ask for an opinion about this or that and then people will end up arguing to one another not helping the OP out at all. They'll say they dont see the point of something completely bypassing what the OP is asking. If there is one thing I CANNOT stand is trolling. It literally makes me want to beat the hell out of the person doing it. And that term, "trolling", gets thrown around so much anymore its completely lost its meaning.

    Why cant someone just ask a question and get it answered without a bunch of crap being thrown into a thread/discussion?

    Probably, I haven't been nearly as active as I was over the past year since I got my car and I started browsing Audi forums a lot, but TPU just isn't the same.

    He's been here a while (3 years) but his response could have been much 'nicer' and a lot less 'trolling'

    I think I still have you on instant messenger, i'm on now if you want to talk.

    Possible, but since i got a infraction for 'insulting a member' it's all good, it was worth it.

    I will probably still post in the club house section but the main areas for 'help' no thanks, I don't feel like getting flamed for information I try to contribute.

    erm what?

    MM flipped your OP round and reposted it. It's all back to front in every way imaginable: horizontal, vertical, rotated and even the characters are backwards once the words are right.

    Why he did that only he knows. :wtf:
