« on: 28 September 2006, 21:09:52 »

I see people are starting useless topics just to expedite their post count.

I think that's bloomin' terrible, cos i would never do such a thing.  ::)

I bet you're tempted to delete half the rubbish we post.  ;)

I see Dave is about to read the riot act in the General Help section for off-topic posts.  ::)

We certainly need to keep the 'help' bit cleaner, as a lot of off topic banter that should be in 'chat' has ended up in there...

Of course i'm not referring to you ST.  ;)

It's that dude who keeps complaining about his EML light, instead of just changing the cam sensor like AA suggested.   ::)

TD or something he's called, reckons he's a God too.  ;D

* EDIT * Just kidding TD, you the man, you're in the TradeClub now.  ;)

Agreed. When someone has a problem with their car, it can be a worrying time and you need to be able to get to the relevant bit of the forum quickly. You are really not in the mood for banter, you just want valid opinions.
However, in the general chat section, I cant see any harm in posting till your arm drops off. I'm sure that people who reach god status that way are fully aware that they're not going to be doing any water/wine tricks any time soon.

Is that a 50/50 mix?

Also is the red wine better, is it long life stuff and can it be mixed with other coolants?  ::)

Can we not drop really ancient posts in the chat section without affecting counts?

Not easily. I could probably write a script to do it, but I'd be crapping my pants the first time I ran it....

Also, remember, we are not 3 months old yet....
