I saw that Vipul joined yesterday, and someone else should be joining today if I am not mistaken. I would love to be a mod if I ever get to that point. I would take the position with open arms. I just wish there were more regular posters, but a lot of people come on with a question or two to ask, and then they are gone. I have a feeling if my forum ever gets busy, that will happen the same way over there. We are here to answer questions, and not everybody who has a question is very computer saavy and is even interested in continuing to participate in such a forum. BTW, my forum is now phpBB 3, and it has a lot of neat new features in it, like temporary bans, temporary stickies, report posts, etc., a lot of stuff that phpBB 2 didn't have. But I don't see the value in buying vBulletin. I get a majority of the functionality in phpbb 3.

Don't worry about the joke, Brookfield, we still like ya!!!

Glad you got it sorted, I wasn't worried, I put 'lol' I think, I'm not a somber person really, there's too much in life to enjoy, to be truthful, my other side only comes out when I'm on CF, I don't experience hassle in my private life, I have many friends, but unfortunately I'm very short on relatives these days!!.

The DB errors drives me away too. This website is a fast website. It loads up 10,000 x faster than any other forums I've ever been on, even when I'm downloading stuff I shouldn't be. That's why I keep coming on here. It's fast when things are right.

But you'll make it to a thousand posts fairly easily. Just don't think about it and post what's on your mind, boom, next thing you know, 800 posts and counting.

Yes, it is, I just hope it wasn't spoilt for him, some of you guys just don't understand, [not you] being a mod can be hard, you have to strike a fine balance between keeping the peace & being caring, some misunderstand if you joke about, what they have to realise is that I was a member, & being made up to mod doesn't alter you as a person, In the RAF, I was promoted to Corporal, Police Corporal that is, it's amazing how many friends you lose when that happens, no violence because they daren't, I'd have had to arrest them & I didn't want to do that, three of them stuck by me & when I hit civvy street, we wrote to each other regularly for years, you are what you are, & nobody can change that, thank goodness!
