Re: New forum - issues and complaints

It will be good to get the Off Topic section back and a 'no politics/religion' policy is obviously needed here now. I suppose dealing with a PLC has just added to the pressures of running the mag, let alone running and moderating a forum. Still, hopefully within a few weeks we will all be happily ta...

Re: Are US subscriptions now being shipped from within the US? Shipping speed VERY slow. Packaging flimsy.

No response in this thread from anyone to do with FUTURE publishing. Surely the export market is a HUGE part of the mags growth - hence the fact you guys n gals stop us getting a Christmas cover! There should be some form of comfort from a Future employee to publicly state something is being done ab...

Re: whats your jobbie?

Isn't it funny that we can talk about SH!T but not talk politics with the threat of a ban if we do so.

My time here may be close to the end.

Have you got permission to post this then? It contravenes part 5 of the AUP - " No Commercial Use".
Well, quite.

Re: If You Could Choose One System

Tough choice between the C64, Amiga and PC

So putting my sensible head on...

But sometimes its hard to work out whether you are trying to make a serious contribution as you spend...

Re: Forum AUP - what is/is not allowed

His tongue in cheek post needed moderating and maybe a PM to suggest a not so naughty post be made - banning, even for a week is completely over the top and unnecessary.

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Re: Forum AUP - what is/is not allowed

Ah! Spector has been banned. Completely unreasonable to do so. The post was obviously tongue in cheek - a warning would have been simple enough and an edit of deletion of the post. Again, pandering to people overreacting to something. I seem to be turning into the Anti-moderator after so many years ...

Forum AUP - what is/is not allowed
