Sorry Aetherfox  :oops: I know I used 3 rotfl emoticons.

About quoting, it is essential since this board isnt threaded. And I do agree in general excessive use of any function(including moderating  :lol:) must be avoided  :bounce:.

I.
1.Agreed.
2.Agreed.
3.Agreed.
4.I believe my post that was a pure emoticon message was funny. =P
5.I think signatures can have a little spam, like mine Wink... and we can occassionally post our website in a thread if it's related to the topic.
6.Agreed. However, this one's gonna get flamed by a lots of people (especially the DAMNED... err,i mean, BANNED)
7.Agreed.
8.Agreed fully.

II.
1.Agreed.
2.Agreed.
3.Agreed.

III.
1.Agreed, but be nice to us guys with slow servers Wink.
2.Agreed.
3.Agreed.

IV.
1.Agreed. But please inform people when they have a TEMP ban. I've had quite a few scares because I was malinformed Wink
2.Agreed. HOWEVER, please don't confuse "arguing" with "questioning respectfully".
3.Oh, yeah. Agreed.
4.Agreed. But should say "includes, but is not limited to". And that last sentence can be added to the list of the previous sentence.
5.Kinda harsh, I think. Maybe a permanent ban would suffice. Should depend on the situation. Try talking sense into those kids first. They're usually just misinformed/stupid.
6.Oh, right. Agreed.

EDIT sorry aetherfox, didn't think. also didnt see your message above Wink

You do that just to annoy me?

Admins...I hope you see what I mean.
That was an unnessary waste of space.

BTW seph, I change my mind about you being a mod Tongue

on quoting, there isnt a technical definition, but you can tell the difference between a quote to comment on and picking apart a lengthy message sentence by sentence to tell a person how wrong you think they are.  Quote-fests will probably be acted on, quotes will not.

TBBQ: General section of the forum I think it was...seph created a topic.

Admins:FYO, that was 803 words of wildcard's, or 4,272 characters.  Now thats about 4.2 kb.  I am currently downloading something, so this page took me about 30 seconds to load.  And it's not even a popular thread.

It's just a picky point, but one I think has serious implications.

Okay, id just like to add that i think the whole idea of banning someone and then having thier profile say "ive been banned" not a good idea. If theve been banned fine, but not everyone needs to know that, just ban them and leave the sub name text/rank alone, it doenst need changing.

That and animated avatars are cool the only problem with avatars is people with massive avatars (cough tbbq and the guy with the lemon who takes half a fricken page for his avatar). I dont see why their is a  need to stop animates avatars, as one only needs to press stop to stop the animation.

I think the rules are way too restrictive. Is this becoming a jail or something like that? Sorry for the tone, but I got a little (a lot!) pissed off when my text was censored without any proper reason some hours ago.

Anyhow, I'll obey them.

I see people (cough ahem) didn't get my point.
Whitetiger...the guy posted above you...why quote?  TBBQ you quoted a guy quoting you i think...its absolutely uneccessary.

Seph I appreciate you're sensitiveness.

Nate, agree with you, but I think this forum is getting a little out of hand...some measures have to be taken, and i KNOW you agree with me.  However, yes, some of the rules make me feel like I'd rather not post for fear of not being able to return again :|
