You may hate me, you may like, and to let you know, I don't care. But what is this forum coming to when you can't even speak a few random sentences without catching some flak from people who think you're "ruining the forum's reputation".

I thought this was a democracy when I joined and everyone's voice could be heard not those with higher "rep". I didn't think I'd get yelled at when I enjoyed some banter with my fellow members, but guess what apparently I was wrong, apparently if you go off topic for about 3 or 4 sentences you get nailed to a cross and burned.

I don't care if you disagree or agree, just prove your point, don't give me some shit-answer like you're ruining the site, because guess what? I'm not the first one to do this and I joined.

Well, leme put it this way, there two types of spamming: 1: Spamming thats loosly based off the subject (Look at WH40k thread for example). 2: And then theres spamming where it's just plane off subject, and that does get quiet annoying after a while, expecially when it's a designated subject like "Best Tank?" or "IG Vehical Cap Is Killing Me!". Also it's annoying when you scream out random stuff that is'nt funny at all like "NIPPLEZZZ!!!"

I never said that nor do I even know why that is my signature (only reason is Zekie and Eclipse). But do you really think it's fair for someone to root you out of the conversation because you got side-tracked? Is it fair for someone who doesn't have a sense of humor to ruin everyone else's good time? Half of the time these things are jokes (not always good ones, but jokes) and people treat them too seriously.

It's okay to joke around, but leme put this into example: Let's say Zeik123 made a thread and needed advice about his ED. We go about 10 posts suggesting him on what he could do, then we change subjects to, let's say, legos, but zeike123 still needs help, and more and more people take it off subject, and when we want it back on subject, it's extreamly difficult because one post is about the subject and the other is not and it goes back and forth and back and forth till we get ourselves a war and next thing we know, a thread like this comes up.

A little bit of joking around and getting off topic is fine from time to time, as long as it doesn't become a trend throughout the entire forum. If you feel you aren't being treated fairly in regards to how others are responding to you, please contact either the moderator of the forum or a supermod, we're here to help.

Brother Ron is speaking how many of us feel. I know i get off topic, but it isn't negative and it's all in good humor. But then we get the serious people who feel that this forum has a reputation and they must uphold it with godlike authority and people like us who are trying to have a little fun get busted down. It's not like we purposely destroy threads, the only ones we really post in are threads that should be long dead or threads that have no material left to sustain them. (thus being long dead.)

Also it's annoying when you scream out random stuff that is'nt funny at all like "NIPPLEZZZ!!!"

I have never done that. The only time I've actually made reference to nipples is when me and zekie got off topic on a should-be dead thread.

I never said that nor do I even know why that is my signature (only reason is Zekie and Eclipse).

It's our little inside joke. If people have a problem with it, well, I'm not gonna get into detail, but as zekie would say, it involves newborns and spleens. Lots and lots of spleens.

Is this confined the the DoW forums, or are you talking about the forums as a whole?

As a side note, your signature is too large. Maximum size is 800x160 pixels including text. You could always have the text adjacent to the image. ;)

I'm talking about the DoW section, people here are way too uptight. And thanks about the advice for my sig. I'll fix it right away.
