I think the admins should report things they don't like that other users are doing in a more discree and carefull way. I think when a user does something against the rules you have set for this forum (or something that you don't like), this should be reported to this user (In a way that doesen't make him feel blamed ) at once, using personal messenger or something like that. Post like this might make new users scared to post, and people might be unsure what is allowed to do or not allowed to do (And that's not what we want, or what?)!
Also, i think we should have a chat room so users that wants to speak together in a faster more direct way can do this in that room instead of posting rapidly in the forum...
Im just trying to help (So nothing is meant as an offence against you admins or anyone else in this forum)

There is a chat room on chat.planetz.net if I'm not wrong,
though, an on-forum chat would be nice

The number of posts certainly seems to have nosedived
Am I contributing now? I don't know. What I do know is that I've been back several times today & re-read Mohamed's warning & as a new user who doesn't have that much relavant to say (my newest Casio is an fx-7000ga & can't do half the stuff your new calcs can) I found it quite intimidating.
However I did enjoy inserting my twopenneth every now & then (e.g. Duke Nukem Forever on Atari 2600, anyone?).
I guess perhaps this forum isn't for me ...

I think the point is to have quality posts over quantity posts... meaning if you want to thank someone or the like include it with more stuff when possible... or when someone asks you for ideas (or something) list as many as you can think of in a single post rather than in a succesion of posts over a few days... also use the edit button if you have something new and not much time has passed since you first posted.
in short dont outright spam and you will be fine, if an admin thinks your doing something wrong talk with them about it, there resonable guys (most of them ), and none of us want to lose members (unless someone has a personal vendetta aginst you ).
even if you feel intemidated by the stuff in the main forum you can participate in the Free Discusion forum and this forum... plus sometimes its a person who has no clue about the what can and can't be done in games is who has the best ideas, I routinely ask my friends (all clueless TI users) what I should make a game about or what I should have in a game and they always say something like "Sim Copter would be cool" at which point I blanch then shake my head and get to work trying to do what I think is imposible... and to my suprise, sometimes I succede.
plus, Brazzucko was over the line, I looked on the "Todays Top 10 Posters" and he had over 40 in just one day... I thought it was just a glitch at the time but now...

Also a CFX is a great calc to learn to program on, after a while you start cherishing every bite of memory and hating yourself for using to much.
but sure, I'd be happy to help you.

The warning was just to set the rules and make it known to everyone.
Users who only come here and share something every now and then are totally welcome.
If anyone feels doubty about anything then tell us, admins have big hearts and good ears.
Considering warning members in a non-harmful way, this is what we do, I usually e-mail or PM members.
Several co-incidences of this type happened before and no other members knew of it. So don't worry.
A final word, this thread is a great example of how things get off-topic. <_<
Please, going off-topic is bad, don't do it.
I would have prefered that the last few posts between Crimson and Bob Vila were exchanged in the messenger or something. They were awfully off-topic.
I won't close this topic so if anyone would like to contribute to it.

( please don't hurt us! )
I was kinda suprised you guys didn't get peeved by my Stress Relief post, but then simon went and posted in it... hmm, mabey this will set the standard for firiviolus posts.
also, I dont know about you guys not being dictators... thats what all dictators say.
also, did someone delete the Brazzucko post? did you want to have my list?
