    Agree.
    But what's wrong with arguing? a lot of the "fun" people are either banned or lost interest in this forum. I wonder why?

    Arguments can be fun because if spice up the forum. But not when it becomes personal.

    My sincere apologies if my recent spat with another member has caused some discomfort. I have been in this forum almost 15 years now since the days of Greenbug, Han2 and whatever nicks.... it is a pit-stop for me between working on the PC and a therapy to post comments... my person is known and in fact many members know me and my mobile number. I have met many over the years at Teh Tarek Sessions when I used to dish out free fruit cakes from Silver Bird.... and quite a few have visited me in Penang to jalan-jalan cari makan and some have ventured into some business activities with me in Indonesia for some side-incomes to prepare for retirement nests...

    Lately I have been having this problem of one single forumer bugging me and trying to irritate me and posting personal details insinuating things which are not true... and still trying to get me banned forever...

    I have been banned... and 90% of my being banned has been because I engage this particular forumer... and another one who used to run a restaurant... I am not offering excuses... but I'll refrain... if I could...

    Again, I apologize...

    Isn't that the FUN part ? Just like a Masquerade ball

    No kidding! hahaha. The fun disappeared when the moderator decided to dump the game threads to a Godforsaken corner. Soon they were forgotten and people started to leave. Those threads actually gave the forum a great sense of fun and delight. They provided everyone a chance to chill, sit back, relax, crack a joke or two, solve some fun puzzles, play some word games and more.

    Let me try to create a new game thread..maybe revive one when I have the time...maybe next week. Let's see if we can bring back the magic of yore. Watch this space, dude!

    Some clarification
    The games were not "dumped to some corner"
    I just moved it to its own sub-forum so that we can have a site for all gamers like yourself
    It wasn't meant to discourage ... in fact I was also actively participating, if you remember?

    there were several reasons for my decision back then...
    • the games threads were "clogging" up the general Forum because at one time there were too many threads that kept pushing the general discussion down the list due to the high activity of the game threads
    • active gamers were generating a huge hit-number by constantly pushing one liner comments as the games progressed
    • the Forum hence started to change to an online game site

    The game forum did not disappear and it is still active
    Please go to Games and Puzzles and continue to play
    And of course, QuietStorm is welcome to start new threads there... (I will move game threads over to that site if they appear elsewhere..but I hope you folks comply by keeping it in the right place)
    I will look into making an active link from the USJ frontpage if it helps
    PM me if you have further suggestions
    Thanks

    Chang,i think you need to reformat the forum to make it more "lively and attractive" .Since nowadays the spat between some ppl,i think you should put everything that forummers input it ,just anything,no need to separate them.

    It is not easy for administrator. Everyone needs to contribute to make it interesting. There are still gold nuggets in this forum.

    It is all about housekeeping
    The ONLY reason to extract the arguments is just to maintain a continuous flow of the RELEVANT discussions in the original thread, uninterrupted by side-tracks. All spats are put into the "Moderation Issues" subforum.

    Anyone wishing to get "entertained" with the arguments, simply go to the Moderation sub-forum. As you are well aware, arguments were never removed.

    All the spats should remain in the original place for one and all to see... how some people can get so petty and vindictive and keep reincarnating and come back to create more mayhem... forumers are old enough to judge for themselves....

    This forum is fun when everybody contributes and quarrel and argue a little.... not when people get personal... that is usually when I too will not be able to hold back and reply...
