Just thought I would point it out. A thread on bad adds on TPU is just bad.
well everything else looks good in the forum, only avoiding general nonsense area, so far rules were post girls pic no nude and stuff, then posted my daughters pic (of course with clothes) and got removed (lol I wouldn't even mind posting our marriage certificate and my daughters birth certificate as proof just in case he thinks I'm messing around also add in family pic ^_^), don't know what logic was used there, even pm'ed a mod and ask and still no reply until now, but so far on the other section mods are doing a fantastic job.
General nonsense is a separate website. You can PM me there or here and link me to what you are talking about.
he posted his avatar pic of his daughter in the hot girls thread.
it was deemed rather inappropriate.
I find that hilarious
I think the mods are far to slack on idiots. I want them to put their asskicking shoes on and go to town on idiots.
I am of course and idiot too.
how interesting both sides of the same coin can be
You know... doing something like that can get you into a lot of serious trouble in the US if someone decided to call CPS (Child Protective Services), especially with the new CISPA bill that is about to pass that'll allow Big Brother and Uncle Sam to access all of your digital data?
Plaintiff (law enforcement): Sir, did you knowingly upload a picture of your under aged daughter, without consent, to a "hot girls" discussion located on an internet forum, of which the assumed majority demographic is middle-aged males?
Defendant (Cotton_Cup): BUT IT WAS JUST A JOKE!
Judge: SILENCE! I am placing your child under government custody until an appropriate foster home is located. I am also issuing a restraint warrant against you from being within 50 miles of your daughter. You will be awaiting further sentence with a bail of $50,000.
Let's keep this thread on topic please, it would be much appreciated.
You know what's wrong with our forum moderator staff? They try to keep this thread on topic.
That's actually my only complaint, if you could call it that, about the moderation here. Always so anal about that on topic stuff. I like to ramble.
I do too, in fact to be honest many do.... thats why we have GN
With regards to avatars, it would most likely be a sound policy for TPU to ban pictures of known minors completely to avoid legal issues.
Someone should indicate, posting of one's family maybe unsafe.
If this is off topic, as to what moderator staffs responsibilities should include, then please remove my comments.
Ramble all you want !! Just ramble about the topic
Come on, people, you know that we let you ramble a lot. It's usually only when a thread is getting completely derailed (like what happens in this thread constantly) that we attempt to steer it back on track.
That is really unnecessary
But this is our drama thread Ever since the title change there is much less drama, my popcorn is getting cold :'(
well nuke it in the microwave then
I do not think this thread should have been closed.
Nothing in that thread said go pirate games. It was the start of a good discussion on what Game Companies are doing. How they perceive the market and how the market perceives them. Just because a post contains the word "pirate" does not make it PRO or ANTI, just a discussion.
At the root of all this we have Politics, Copy Right Laws, and Government. All VALID topics. Especially on a Tech site that is related to Hardware AND Software.
These are all topics that can be found in other threads. I don't find this particular thread helpful or otherwise in any way. From what I can see it's an unintelligent ranting/excuse thread as to why or why not on the subject. If any other moderator/administrator wants to overrule my decision, it doesn't matter to me. But the way I see it, it closely relates to post #2 within that thread and isn't needed here. Of course, you could of PM'd me.. But I would of told you the same thing.
Uh, that the second thread on the same subject.
I think TPU's choice of mods is great! Very responsible people!
My bad if i was supposed to PM you. I guess I noticed how quickly all the mods jumped on that thread and it bothered me that the stance was so strict.
I think it was jumbled and odd reading because OP was using a translator.
Don't want to see every thread that questions the integrity of the software industry to get stamped out because someone mentioned piracy.
If that isn't the case and it was just because of redundant threads, then that's cool.
I didn't see the other one. I don't spend all day on here reading every post (which is why I shouldn't have said anything without looking a little harder).. Don't you have a review to write or something.
Don't worry ZZZ, we don't stomp on threads that discuss gaming industry politics, etc.
That particular thread was a rehash of what was already being discussed.
BTW ... since you mentioned "piracy" in your post we're going have to close this thread now.
I do it for the lulz. And that is a lulz post.
This was typed in the quick reply box.
