    Default No Fair

    i was just reading this thread

    http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=70628

    thanks pctek for wrecking it! i had so much "useful" information to add to it

    i think that PC World Chat needs to seperate catagories
    1. Those seeking help and expecting an answer
    2. Those seeking help but cant use google and expect only ridicule and laughing out loud good times

    dont ban me for making this point please, life would be lonely

    Why would you do that? It was back in 2006. The guy might have either failed his paper or passed it and no one would care.
    Meh....

    i stumbled across it readin another thread and it just made me think how much fun the chat forum can be and that its kinda sad that new members dont see that

    obviously this site is intended for useful purposes but we're also all people, not robots. a bit of personallity is good is all im tryin to say

    I understand where you're coming from, but once you enter/post in this forum then you have to be a good boy and follow all the rules

    I think you need to move on from that thread - it was nearly 2.5 years ago now. It did turn into a free-for-all, so you can hardly pin the blame on pctek. You are also overlooking the fact that others did go out of their way to help the original poster.

    Why do you say a bit of personality is required? I thought you were initially implying there was too much *personality* in that thread?

    Also, online humour either sinks or swims. If you try it on a brand new member, it tends to sink.

    i wasnt tryin to bring back memories or anything and im not tryin to annoy anyone, i just think that some people need to relax a bit, after all this forum is just one person helping another, no one owes anyone anything

    by addin the odd smart coments we're also helpin break the "nerds arent fun" stereotype

    wasnt pinning blame on pctek either (should of smiled there)

    btw jen what is your avatar of? its has me stumped

    I liked the way you asked everyone to play nice as it was getting tiring having to step in, how did that work out for you?

    There are a few legendary threads lurking in the forum archives of members letting their hair down and having a play (without endangering newbies).

    Turn your monitor upside down to work out my avatar.
