dssripper you are putting personal things forward, because you say you spend 99% of the time in the general forum, you think everyone does? I hardly am in the general forum anymore, first thing I check is the mod forum...


At another forum that I am at, there are plenty of moderators/admin around, and if they spot anything wrong [for example flaming] they will put that person in a thread called detention. Then they cannot enter any other part of the forum till they are out. They have 3 strikes, first is 24hrs, etc, etc.... But also the sign up process is limited now, rather than straight forward like xbox scene [think you got to pay for it now].

I am not implying that everyone spends their time
in the general forum. I am saying that ALOT of
members hang out here because their xbox is
not their peak interest at the moment.
I am trying to say that general chat is
a very popular place because people who
have joined the site have other interests
besides the xbox. If people don't like
the general forum then don't visit. It's a personal
choice.

I agree that everyone is not here to view
the "silly antics" of the general forum.
But, I have to wonder if they closed
the general forum down, what would
you do Mage? Your post count is 62%
in the General Forum. The xbox is
what gave us our common interest.
If 2 people become friends because
they share 1 interest, they wont stay
friends unless other interests and ideas are discussed.
Does that make sense? I am saying
if you close off all other subjects other
than xbox, no matter how great that subject is,
people are going to lose interest.

Yep, that percentage has been going down over the last few months, as I post more in other forums compared to general chat.

The difference is I wouldn't mind if general chat is gone, I am not that partial to it.
Not to mention many threads that have existed in general chat were indeed about the xbox, so you cannot try simple logic of 62% in general chat is equal to 62% not about xbox.

Well i havent even been here a month and well... yea a little, less people come in because of several wars... recentally regarding one with a Very Very well known member....

But people just have to stick tough times out, either not come on, or just shutup and listen... Theres flames in almost ever thread.. although some will break into wars most dont...

I think the site is getting better and better now that ALL people are taking action and watching themselves... personally i dont know if they did the house clean yet or not.. but if they did then for all the people still here should know what im talking about and should probally agree with me...

But yet no matter how bad this site gets... Theres some of us (me) that will always be here and work for a better place... For those who took the time to read this are most likely the *behaved* ones and for those who get in trouble here dont take any of this offensively...

So cheers beerchug.gif and have a happy 4th

the General Chat forum = complete crap.

dude, this is the only forum I ever visit, and I love it. There's a little bit of everything, even if there is the 'occasional' flame and stupid people. It's still a kick ass forum.

Yeah, I can't believe the number of people that voted no. If you really meant that you would not be around anymore
