I'm not bored

and if I wanted to post here, I would have. I'm fully aware of it's existence being as I started it. I was thanking dude for honoring my request and asked for clarification as to what he posted, which requred a new thread. I'm sure this will be locked and that's really fine, but you locked the other one before dude even had a chance to respond so now there's one more. The rules don't say anything about how useful a thread must be or how many can be posted. Is there some sort of thread limit placed by whatever company hosts the boards? Seriously. Help me understand the rationale. Thanks.

Chupa my foo.

I don't think it's an actual written rule on this board (yet), but threads must have a valid topic.

What was invalid about thanking someone and asking them a question?

Nothing about that was. But most of the threads themselves have no topic. Usually it's better to do this kind of stuff in the Test section.

Oh yeah, MZ6 could still respond to your thread, he has the power to unlock it and do so, but he most likely won't.

One more comment: it's amazing that you've managed to get something locked in the lounge, it's so lenient here, and yet you've managed to get what? 5 threads locked in a day. Amazing.

Want to talk about anything else? Post here!

I wanted to talk about being off topic. I wanted to talk about excessing moderating. I wanted to make notice of my attempted conformity and talk about it as warranted. I wanted to test something out (I guess it should've been in the test section - didn't think about it). I wanted to talk to MZ6ZoomZoom and thank him for honoring my request.

Yeah, but I asked for one of em...literally haha

BBCode goes hard, btw.

There already was one thread about excessive moderating:
here
PM's work rather well if you want to thank somebody . Especially if they locked your thread .

I'm suprised I wasn't linked to it. Guess that would've just proved the point, though. haha

PM's...hmmm haha

I just provided the link. Guess I was in the middle of editing my reply when you quoted me.
And I guess I'm being stupid, but what point would it have proved?

Changing the title of a thread regarding excessive moderating and locking a thread regarding excessive moderating, while linking to another one about excessive moderating seems evidence of excessive moderating. Heaven forbid something is discussed in more than one place in different manners or the conversation ventures...off-topic.

I'm off-topic? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

hahahahaha. good point. However, you can bet that if I was a mod this thread would be locked. Why? b/c it's too much. You've already got a thread about nothing, there's no reason to have another one.

Do you have an AIM sn? If you want to discuss things like this, it's usually better to question one of the members in person. You can get mine from my profile, but you have to be on my buddy list for you to see that I'm online-which means I need your screen name first.
