The Random Crap Thread

Recommended Posts

There has been some posts about thread derailment over the last few days, so I thought I would start this thread where people can just post what they want, within the forum rules. There is no subject, so it cant get derailed.

Lets see just how messed up this thread gets over the next few days.

Edit: Think of this thread working like Facebook updates or Twitter where you can post random stuff that most people dont really care about

Does this also work for quoting posts from other threads?

If you feel that your post in the other thread would start to derail it and want to post it hear instead, carry on.

Fair enough Doro.... I thought it was a reference to the hiding weapons in my post prior. :)

Edit: I have read that story you linked

 

You might get a laugh out of this... but... WARNING LADIES!!! Don't you dare laugh... men only please.

Deputy PM of the Turkeys... ummm Turkish... government. How is trying to join the EU goin' for ya Erdogan?

I don't think the Turks will be joining the EU any time soon with the muppets they've got running the place.

I went off topic in the Israel/Gaza thread with this reference to Turkey...

 

I hope there is no EU in their immediate future LV... sheesh they are in a very strategic location or I'd bet NATO would drop them as well after they tried to draw them into a war with Syria this year.

 

And Turkey was on a so much better course before Erdogan came along

Oh well, I think my next graphics card will be an Nvidia one unless AMD sort out their moronic driver coding. There is still a fucking flickering issues with web browsers from 13.12 that hasn't been resolved in 14.7 RC1.

I've had to debrick my card today after I flashed the bios with an update that was supposed to fix that. Wasn't fun. Back to 13.11betav9.5 Catalyst in the mean time.

 

This is an issue on lots of Radeon cards atm, as well, so you'd think the fucking morons would get off their arses and look at what's different.

Turkey would be far better off without his influence. I have been there recently and have witnessed some of the protests live, nasty stuff. Apparently, he pulls country backwards, but many people seem to be content with it. Discontent has risen as well though. It would be good for them, if Erdogan is not elected as a President, because then it will get hard to get rid of him at all

I'm still getting an annoying buzzing from my AMD card, whenever I move the mouse across the screen. Recently broke my headphones, so I can't even use them to block it out.

Darmokk, I'm sure it's a noble idea, but it's nowhere in the Forum Rules that we are required to do so. You need to go to MueR and see if this is a change he wants for his forums.

P.S. It's Sadat and Begin in '78, not Arafat and Begin.

Ah, you see that's where he shows his true colours. It's not in the forum rules... however, trolling is. Which means Darpience is forced to twist a post to make it trolling, so that he can remove posts he disagrees with. It's like an all-encompassing excuse.

I think this debate has already been settled.....

/derail on

 

A couple of years back, an Iranian FARS News outlet  picked up an article from Onion, thinking it was fact, published it as fact   lol.   something about USA rural white people would vote for Iranian president Ahmadinejad over USA President.

 

Onion released a statement stating that FARS News agency is a subsidary of Onion, they share content with FARS and commend the journalists at FARS for their supurb reporting.

 

(On knees praying "please please please let the Palastinians see this and think it true ...  pleeeaasee!")

 

 

/derail off

EDIT: my memory was not too bad:
 
 
but FARS did apologise:
 
 
Statement from the above article:
 
"Although it does not justify our mistake, we do believe that if a free opinion poll is conducted in the US, a majority of Americans would prefer anyone outside the US political system to President Barack Obama and American statesmen," the Fars story quoted the unnamed editor as saying.
 
Ummmmm ... Mr Iranian dude, a sort of free opinion poll was conducted, Obama got in.
 
What is not too sure though, is how John Kerry, US secretary of State, got in.

Wait.. what? We've been derailing threads for the last 3 years? Is thread derailment not aloud anymore? Is Sapience going to have so little to do now at Extra Life that he has started  working here part time as well?

Yes, if Darpience arbitrarily decides he doesn't like a specific post or direction a discussion heads (regardless of the actual rules), he will hide the posts, threaten people and give them 'warnings' for trolling. It's like the closer we get to Sapience leaving, the closer Darmokk gets to becoming his replacement.

Did he delete even more posts from this thread? The thread that's supposed to be all about random stuff which means it can't go off topic?

When I was a mod on some other forums, those forums had a split function. we could split off off topic stuff to it's own thread. Maybe this should be looked into before deleting. Deleting should be a very, very last resort for extreme circumstances, imho.

Nope, nothing deleted here. And the problem is you can't see what's been hidden either, so fuck knows how much has actually gone missing with no explanation or reason given. I once had a picture of a tall horse hidden... not sure why.

Ah, I get it.. you were quoting Dal from another thread.

Yeah, this shit will get confusing pretty quickly. But it's necessary to placate someone who can abuse mod powers on a whim!

Darmokk is volunteering as a mod - and I don't think anything he has done is really worth debating (for me at least). A few edits to one or two threads are not that important. He does a pretty good job - even if his cleaning up of threads (which almost never happens) could be annoying.

 

I do notice that the more extreme, graphic, and vulgar or porn-filled, a post is, the more chance it will be removed (maybe because someone asked Darmokk to remove it). It might be annoying some times, but the moderation here is not that bad.

 

I can't see Darmokk as having an agenda or censoring topics - it just doesn't happen. He mainly wants to keep some threads on topic - and his mod actions are rare.

 

EDIT: to be fair I don't know all the posts that were deleted, and if anyone was given a PM about a ban. I hope not. Just saying I don't have the whole story and Darmokk could be DrEvil behind the scenes (just kidding).
