If you have any requests or comments for the moderators of the Electronic Devices forum, please post here.  We’re here to make this forum as informative as possible, so as such we cull some of the nonsense as we see fit.  At the same time, this is your forum, so we’d like to entertain your ideas on how best to improve it here.  Tnx!

Yes! I have a suggestion, start deleating the posts of the people who go through every string making pointless comments just to boost the rating that they get!! I also would like to see this same thread for the other forums. I have a suggestion for explosives.

Well sadly, I don’t have the time to weed through every individual post, the garbage just keeps flowing in.  And it doesn’t even have the effect you’d think it does… even if I delete 50 of your posts, you still get credit for them, I’m not sure why the board is set up that way (perhaps it can’t be set up any other way, it’s 3rd pary software).

OK, to bad! Then how about setting up a dumb ass  of the week thread to shame and embaress them into knocking it off?

Zambosan, i usualy have loads of time to weed through, but after a while it gets boring, i do my best, but when i get tired i start getting people banned. I think that prehaps when some1s post is deleted, it minuses the equivilent posts from them.

Actually, I asked xpl0siv about this, and he said the credit does not go down when your post is deleted.  However, if it’s warranted, he can reset someone’s standing.  Of course, if it’s warranted, you might as well be banning them… 🙂

What Johnny99 said about people who go through and post useless stuff just to boost ratings..  I see stuff i like sometimes, and i don’t always have something really insightful to say to them.. but if i see someone has posted something that i find funny or a good idea..  i like to tell them so. Personally i don’t care about my rating.. i am just here because i like the page..  sometimes people get a little harsh..  but i understand why..  it is stupid to post threads that are already there and obvious.

stephenericorse i agree with you, but zombasons a little fuck off bet couse he can’t under stand we i’am comeing from. I am guess he reads the internet(meth..) and then qutos them has is. So when some one has done a test or experiment he say its bull shit.

*Sigh*… if he only had a brain…
No, I intentionally keep my mouth shut when I’m not 99% sure I know what I’m talking about.  Most posts I make are from personal experience.  I work on extremely complex systems embedded in a single piece of silicon for a living, comprising analog & digital hardware, as well as embedded software applications.  As far as explosives go, well, let just say I’m not going to incriminate myself.  It’s been a long running hobby, and I enjoy helping other people out & pointing them in the right direction.  To that end, one of the most important things to do is to alert people when they’re being fed bullshit.  Bullshit advice relating to energetic compounds like explosives can be deadly.  Bullshit relating to electronics, computers, etc. is just IRRITATING.  Having worked with a wide range of systems, software, languages, materials, etc. I have a pretty good built-in “bullshit detector”.  When it goes off, I let you know.  Most people that come here to posture and look knowledgeable stop posting crap when I call their bluff.  Sometimes they go away, more often they shut their mouth, open their ears, and the next time they post it’s something worthwhile or a *good* question.  That’s what I’m shooting for here.  You, on the other hand, just confound me.  You must like the negative attention, being unable to garner any other kind.

Just like all your other posts, I can’t understand half of what the HELL you’re writing!!! It has nothing to do with my not being able to understand where you’re “coming from”, it has to do with my inability to understand words like: qutos, relie, meth.., recon…
If english is not your first language, I can partially understand… but you should still get a better command of the language, especially if you’re going to try to engage in a battle of wits.  If it *is*, then take some remedial classes!!! :angry:
