    I know, especially whilst darting between this and the "questionable avatar" thread; I got seriously confused!

    I'm so dissapointed the avatar thread got closed, honestly this is like being on a forum full of kids rather than a forum full of adults.

    And by that I mean we are treated as children, what shite.


    This is what made me leave before, sorely tempted to leave again now I know the forum is still a load of BS.

    I find it completely kills the atmosphere here for me : /

    Like ruins the whole "forum" thing we're supposed to have going on.


    I really look down on closing threads that arnt trolls/spam bots, to me it's like burning books.

    Ah well bugger it, I'll take the help I may need when setting up new rig and then piss off again, it's only a few people that keep me here as I enjoy talking to them, the rest is just dissapointing to an extreme.

    My name is not on the list... :confused:... :shadedshu... :banghead:... :mad:... ADD ME!!!

    LOL, first time finding this thread and I don't entirely understand what is going on, although I have pretty much found that I'm supposed to post the town I live in.

    I live Canning Town which isn't exactly what I would say is a good area at all, but I've lived there long enough to be used to the area and thanks to the snow no crap should be happening anytime soon with the minus temperatures and everything else that comes with it.

    That's why I keep coming back to TPU. There are some f'ing awesome people here (the majority being in this club) and a lot of people in that have authority that really, really shouldn't have.

    If it wasn't for the decent members and their decent threads or input, then I'd have given up years ago. Before I joined TPU I read these forums for years & I've seen people come and go. If I really hated it I'd leave but instead I take it on the chin so that I can get to the good stuff.

    No steam or gaming for me for another week maybe : [

    But I'll be back to gaming with a x6 cpu when i do :D

    Got all the bits I need for £350 aswell,£300 of which was from selling the bits of my rig that didn't actually die + some new bits : ]

    In terms of specs £350 got me.

    1055t x6
    dual pci-e slot board (x16x4) by Asrock 770 chipset ( risky! yeah!)
    Modular generic psu ( SUPER RISKY, EXCITING!)
    9600gt
    Kingston hyperx 2x2gb 1600mhz
    500gb 7200 16 HDD


    @ IC, I'm not very good at taking it on the chin when I have the option to not take it on the chin with no repercussions XD (spellings
    ????)

    But I see your point, shouldn't let the bells ruin the good people here.

    Ive read the avatar/sig thread and the way i see it, its crying over spilt milk. if they dont like peoples 'explicit' avatars or sigs then just turn them off - theres nothing wrong with a bit of tits n ass in moderation so long as its not too revealing and if the person refuses to turn the option off himself then the problem lies not with the forum but with him, himself whose trying to force people into sharing the same views.

    like Wizz said - if he thinks the avatar/sig is breaking the rules then report it and let the mods deal with it. Wizz even supports that idea so why are people still crying about it?? its not as if members copy, paste pictures and link every single post to nude ladies so whats the major problem??

    fine, if you have kids and are genuinely concerned about what they watch or see online or on this forums then wait until their at school, or asleep before you visit here why force people to bend because of your selfishness??

    its simple - if you DONT want your kids to see women in bikini's and thongs in bad quality avatars - either turn them off in user CP or only log on when your kids are not around. why make such a big fuss about it?? if anyone thought there was anything seriously wrong with it - one of the mods would have picked it up - like how Krej pm'd me about having the word 'motherfucker' in my avatar and asked me to change it up a little.

    admins/mods are doing their job constantly. if they all think its alright - then it must be all right, stop trying to blow up the matter and make it sound like its worser then it is.

    and im not saying that because here in the UK we have the highest number of teenage pregnancies so we have a more laid back view when it comes to anything of a sexual nature.

    and the responces to that thread really amazes me. because at first nobody said anything about it then all it took was one person to stand up n say he'd had enough and everyone came crawling out of the wood work to look over his shoulder and agree.

    I found my dads porno stash when i was 11 - we gotta learn about the birds n the bee's sometime, and better early so they know not to potentially fuck up their life by getting preggers when their in their early teens

    I know what you mean. Hence Alex leaving and my lack of participation recently. Some people really do ruin it for the rest.

    By the way ND, how much for that 520 HX? lol ( it is modular right?) if it's same price as what I paid for my psu on the way now I may just return it and buy yours.

    Shame to see other people agree with me to be honest, I was hoping I was just fussy or what ever.
