    Read The Rules

    There seems to be a certain number of members and some newbies that think the forum is the Howard Stern show lately. I'm not going to mention names because everyone knows who they are, but it has got to stop. i'm on here to talk about cars,i don't even mind a heated debate on cars, but i did notcome on here to hear personal insults and mud throwing between members. we just got a link on this old honda, what do you think they think about us now? what about the guests? do you think they want to become members when they hear someone cussing someone else out in the forum? if you want to cuss someone out use your pm function. that will keep the rest of us from hearing it. also try to keep some of the cuss words down, you know that causes content filters to block us. for those members who are guilty read the forum rules. moderators the rest of us won't complain if you lock some of those threads. now everyone else lets enjoy talking about three geez.

    you should also read the rules. the rules EXPLICITLY STATE that there is to be UNDER NO CIRCUMSTACES any POSTWHORING, something which you seem to be taking part of A LOT since you rejoined. you have resurrected threads that have been resolved for YEARS, and you seem to complain about it when someone corrects you. while this isn't a written rule, it is a little piece of etiquette you should follow.

    so, to recap:

    don't be a postwhore
    don't bring up threads from 2002 that were resolved in 2002
    quite being a hypocrite

    i brought back some technical threads because i had some new input for them, yes i admit sometimes i brink back a thread because i don't see the date. but it's not inten. there are a few issues which don't hurt to bring up once in a while. i brought back the lights thread because i'm going to start working on them again very soon. if i brink back something technical it's because i have something to add. what i was talking about in this post is members cussing each other out on the thread, we all work hard on our cars and when somene does that it makes us all look like a bunch of little kids. someone said something about the thread on the oil pressure gauge, i brought that back for the new members who don't know about this stuff yet. remember some of those older tech articles were on here before some of the other people were. the tech itself doesn't change. i've actually been on here since 2002 i believe, still trying to get my join date fixed. i've spent a lot of time under the hood of my car and if anything i know helps someone else thats what it's all about. I have a suggestion, how about the dates on the posts be made a litle bigger for those who can't see as well as others? or even change the colors of the dates? that would help keep some of the old posts from accidenly being brought up. i'm not complaining about someone saying something about the old posts by the way, sorry if it seemed like i was.

    there have been several instances lately not going to mention the guilty parties, i don't mind a good old fashioned debate on things mechanical, but when people start running each other down because of who posted what about who in the thread and it has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic at hand,.......if i wanted to hear who did what to who i would watch springer. it's annoying when you start to read a thread about somethin interesting and all the sudden it degenerates into a fight between two members. the majority of the time it doesn't happen but lately it's been cropping up

    oh i had a good idea, what about on a thread where there hasn't been a post for a while something to mark it so that instantly you know it's a dead thread? sometimes i'll look at who's online and see an interesting sounding thread, then i'll get to reading it and forget it's an old thread. sometimes it's hard for me to see my monitor clearly, especially the last few weeks, been working with a lot of tap magic and the fumes really bother my eyes.

    Not to be a b*tch, but the date? If it looks recent then its not dead, if its from 3 years ago its dead

    what i meant is if you link to it from somewhere else sometimes you don't notice the date, if something would come up to tell you it's a dead thread, kind of like a friendly reminder. on my screen the date kind of blends in too, plus having trouble with my eyes lately. i guess i could change to high contrast.
