Apologies to those who can use the forums

by chiv30   May 10, 2014  

Unfortunately the admin still haven't had the decency to inform me , either publicly or privately as to why when I post a comment it cannot be seen.

I appreciate some of you have tried to get me an answer .
I have proven that it is nothing to do with my isp,cache,cookies,browser or hardware by creating and using a pseudonym which you have seen .

This leads me to the conclusion that the admin of these forums has muted both myself and northstar without warning or an explanation and therefore until a reason is forthcoming I will ,unfortunately , continue to bump old threads as it seems the admin do not want to address this issue

A simple resolution would be for the admin to contact me and explain why

Cheers Confused

Mate, i dont think thats the answer as its just going to pee off other users having to scroll through all the old posts.

Just use your new account and carry on as normal.

Chiv30, this is a bit annoying.

Anyway, hope you get your posting sorted, but this isn't necessary.

I don't think it's the answer either, using one account to post on the forum and one for the game is inconvenient for me so I'm just trying to give ppl an idea of how annoying things can get in that situation.

Unfortunately, the admin of this site don't have the common decency to explain why I have had my original account muted.

I have two choices post multiple times asking the same thing or bump old posts to try and get a response either one will affect the normal users on this forum Thinking

Yes it is , the only person even slightly affiliated to the site that bothered responding was gkam but as he said he can't control the forum and was going to contact Dave to try to get an answer , Dave nor Dr has responded to my original post or pms .....so in my situation , ie muted without warning , reason , or response to why, what would you be doing ?

Write him directly from your email address to his, dave@road.cc, or call him at the office... You might need a more personal approach than the anonymity of the forums... I think he might respond to a more familiar approach than discussing this on such a public forum... Who knows? I'd be frustrated, too but I think I'd write him a more personal email... It must be frustrating but if you want answers I think you should try to get them straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak... I can't imagine this is the kind of conversation he would want to have here on the forum, if he even wants to have it... Thinking

He has my email , I've pmd him , I've asked on the forum ....I'll go with ur final comment and say I don't think he does want this conversation as he has no legitimate reason for muting my original account . However I'll mail him and see what response I get (if any)

I haven't commented because of late I've been making a concerted effort to avoid the forums because every time I've visited them lately I've ended up frustrated and pissed off so haven't really been on.

Anyway, I have even fewer permissions than Gkam in the game and none whatsoever in the forums so I haven't got a clue what's going but I was enjoying the peace and quiet.

As far as I'm concerned the forums are better for the pair of you not being around as much and if only we could loose enrique the atmosphere would markedly improve.

Clearly those are my opinions and nothing to do with road.cc but the lot of you are pushing me towards either abandoning the forums entirely like Wig_billy or quitting the game altogether.

Well I have to say I appreciate your honesty.
I do have a question for you though , is it the fact that i have an opinion that you disagreed with that makes you believe the forum is better off without me?

If so doesn't that defeat the whole point of being part of a forum , a difference in opinion is what makes a forum tick.

If you have no control over the forum btw then you could have quite easily stated as much when you first noticed the post .

Again appreciate your honesty but this has nothing to do with Enrique . However as you bought him into this I have to point out , yes at times he can be over enthusiastic but he only ever seems to have the site/game/ forums interests at heart ,so your comments on him are uncalled for .

Yes we all know he has been a but silly with pseudonyms but that's all .

Now to be blunt , wig left the forum because he didn't like the fact ppl were annoyed over the blatant cheating that he and others undertook .

If you really want to leave the forum go ahead , it would be sad to see you go , but that's your prerogative

Dan, Dan, Dan... Big Grin What can I do to please you? Thinking You must be a great guy, and so must Gkam, for that matter... I mean, you're friends with Dave, you have his trust...But the truth is, I too, have thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the 'peace and quiet' here, especially (!) because you've (!) been avoiding the forums (!) Big Grin How ironic! Smile I enjoy chiv, I laugh at northie's occurences... This is not (!) a bad place! I love (!) it (!), with (!) or without (!) you (!) Big Grin

I wish you had spoken up earlier in this mess... Sometimes I don't think you realize how 'official' you and Gkam are perceived by me, and maybe others (!), and I think it would have been good for you to have spoken up about this earlier... The man (chiv) is clearly in distress about this situation and you speaking up about it would have been better for all, in my (!) opinion. You're clearly gifted and educated. I do (!) think highly of you. You are (!) a spreadsheet master and obviously someone very dedicated to this game, but, sh*t (!), sometimes you aggravate me with what I see as a 'holier than thou' attitude. If you ask me, TER is the most human, and I hate to say this, but, the most 'professional'of all the admins here. Always professional, always 'even keeled'. I think he does a mighty fine job here, is the consumate professional and never 'loses his cool' Big Grin

All in all, I'm happy here Big Grin And chiv must like it here too (!) to be that (!) upset that he's been marginalized, for lack of a better word... We're all human... By the way, watch how you use 'loose'... I think you meant 'lose'...

I'll say this, Wig Billy isn't around on the forums anymore, but he's damn (!) sure still playing... I bet you yourself (!) couldn't stop playing bar some unforeseen tragedy in your life (!) I couldn't (!) And we all have Dave to thank for that (!) Big Grin And as far as Gkam and his drama about leaving? Waiting Are you kidding? Big Grin With the amount of posting he does here I can't even see how he ever manages to fix a bike (!) Just kidding, of course Big Grin I love you, Dan. Let's hug it out like a family! Smile

Of course I enjoy it here , there's decent banter plus the game is fun .
As for distressed, not really, just think it's common courtesy to explain why I can no longer post on my original account

Btw ...I didn't want to get all grammar Nazi and point out loose vs lose so thanks for that Rolling On The Floor
