I can understand the closure. But certainly not the way it is done. I hope an explanation will follow.

And I believe that it was me who last commented a new guy on his crappy language on the forum thursday :-)

if people don't take the effort to verify what they write down, why should we take the effort to read what they write.
either way, no matter what the reason, the way Garnaal is handling this is quite childish and immature

@Geoffrey: once upon a time (<2001) it's hardware & software forum was the best out there, with the nicest people, with give away contests held by Calantak, hardware overclocking meetings, drinks, howto, FAQs (current HWFaq at madshrimps was born on that forum), with large group of friendly people, not acting childish or egocentric; totally different atmosphere than TN Games forums now;

ever since we started Madshrimps though we have frequented these forums more for HW&SW ; so Shrimpcity's helpdesk for HW problems was mostly left abandoned, the reason why it's closed down is because people in their spamforum were going overboard

Google cache proved otherwise, the person he was referring to came to the forum for help because his content was being drowned by bad content spammers. He wasn't listened to by the site owners and in the end stopped providing content for the site, BUT continued to come on the forum. In fact, he was online on the day the forums closed down...
So that part was a lie from g's side at least.

Telenet.games is immature and overmoderated on occasions, the level of the community on the other forum was higher, altho not very noob friendly. And the community is smaller. But it's always best to lurk a bit before posting on an unknown forum, it just held true on that forum a bit more than on others.

Even the moderators act immature.. I do visit it though (webdesign/programming/buy&sell).



I did like A51 forum the last month(s). Sure, sometimes childish, but often funny ****. Reminded me of the old (and even older) days JMke is talking about.
