    TBH we all tried the chat room... that did not last long for a number of reasons.

    Can I suggest that is OT is for OT CarPC Posts ( which TBH is on topic ) that a seprate 'chat' forum is introduced - this means that all chat would be on topic therefore solving your moderator dilema.... how ever I also have to agree with Rusty if it was not for MT I would also not have made as many Friends ( yes I do have some ) both this side and the other side and further of the Atlantic.... if any thing it re enforces my view that this site is an international community and not just a shop with a forum.... but thats for another day.

    Thanks for the feedback and input, guys. We mods have discussed whether a 'My Thread' is a good idea or not but haven't gotten any input from the site admins. I think rather than assert that our opinion is the one that counts, I'll let them make the decision.

    I'll post up a specific request in the Mod/Admin section and ask them to refer to this thread and give us their opinion.

    I'll also ask them to give us more specific guidance about signatures. Either confirm no external links or clarify under what circumstances they are allowed. I know CCSNet, among others, is upset with me about it and, in the end, it's really not my call.

    Don't know how long it will take to get an answer, but I'll get back to you all.

    Not directly... I think the is a massive diffrence in moderation tactics round here where the rules can be interprited in what ever way some one feels at the time.

    I'm upset about getting a clear kicking in this area by Ziplock when clearly I am not the only one ( as reported today ) including mods. You either enforce what it says your you dont...

    Double standards where they are applied, badly written and enforced rules, conflict of intrest ( ala shop ) and massive attitude issue from some areas especially with newbies.

    As I said to one mod - I have been here for a number of years contributing activley and helping where possible and I belive that gives others like my self the cudos not to be called spamers or anarcists as our posts ( to where ever ) have a genuine reason.

    Again - I have made several suggestions on how to over come a number of these problems to those willing to listen ( key point ) and hence why with my last thred I even asked for it to be closed for the moment to allow those that did listen to put the point accross.

    How ever - here is another - how about a select number inc my self, rusty, scouse, E who have a level head and can speak to others get invited to an offline room to discuss this directly with the mods / admin staff and get these issues aired - heck we may even be able to assist in some techincal solution ?

    HEY, THAT'S CENSORSHIP!!!! JK

    well, it seems there is a common theme with all of the answers.....


    friendship..... & general bs'ing ....., in the end I guess that's what it boils down to..., does this site want to accept & allow, & graciously host this or not I guess...

    how about an mp3car cafe'... only visable to members.... that would be really cool...

    up until now, I am really thankful to mp3car for hosting pictures & threads, & basically being what it is..., it's a part of my daily routine, as I'm sure it is for others...., can't you see we love it here? no one wants to feel like they've been "kicked out"....

    We've already got a bull****ter's cafe - it's over the on the Jedi side (we call this one over here the 'dark side' )
    I don't see the point of having two My Threads to be honest. I've always visited both forums and there's useful information to be had from both. I also don't see the harm in people putting links on one forum to the other, but then that's just me

    So may I ask why do Red still have a direct link to that other forum in her sig? Why hasn't the link been removed just like you removed the links on everyone else's sigs?? I know you guys are discussing this but why is it ok for here to keep the link while their isn't a definitive answer? Why are we having double standards here? Is she allowed to have such links because she is a Mod? Does she have higher/special rights that ordinarly members don't?
