Re: Is there bullying/steamrolling on this forum?

Well like so,eone said, if you do something and people report it and you get told to stop doing it, then people do it to you but you don't like reporting it, then of course it looks one sided. I think thats more down to the individuals than the mods. Again, no worms meant but members have been bann...

Spam is scum. That's why RP is currently locked to new sign ups. It's a chore as well.

Re: The thread of happiness and delight

I don't think there has been any negativity on here, just discussions. Now if you'll excuse me I'll do what you would expect

Re: Is there bullying/steamrolling on this forum?

skulking about asking other members to report I don't think this happens. As spambuster, I can see reports, its usually the same one or two people who do it and its very unusual for a post to be reported by more than one person. Usually the reporters are reporting posts that have been directly aime...

Re: The Roms

I feel old as anything knowing the Vectrex (and speccy) came out in 1982. 33 years ago now, seems like yesterday. But THIRTY THREE years ? Damn Old? Shmold. I feel both lucky and privileged to be part of the actual gaming revolution right through till now ..... currently the best time of gaming of ...

Re: Is there bullying/steamrolling on this forum?

It's just not my game of cricket I'm afraid (and maybe that's the problem all along?). I'm not a whiny little man child (just an accurate description IMO of reporting members in general on any forum) and even if I were? I don't believe for a second that a single report (especially by me) would be an...

I personally love vector graphics so i like most of these games. Playing the Vectrex app on my iCade is great
They were MORE expensive then? How much new?

Re: The Roms

No, it's definitely trash, and overpriced at that.

I must say that I had never even heard of one (or seen/played one) until I got into retro, the first I saw/played was at The Retro Ball (I think). Maybe if I'd had played one back in the day? It would have blown my balls off.

Re: Is the moderating team on RG fair and effective?

Is that relevant to my thread? I have been banned and accepted that ban, I haven't mentioned my reason for being banned and am only discussing the forum. Again, if I have broken any rules, point them out. Embarassing? For who? certainly not me. edit: I think it's embarrassing for the forum, it shows...

Re: Are there double standards on this forum

Only a problem in as far as 9 people think there are double standards. Not a problem with the two separate figures quoted. It would be nice if we could resolve things so at least most of those 9 are satisfied. I might add another option on my latest poll, I hadn't considered members that are happy ...

Re: Snooker/pool games

Steve Davis Snooker. What's the best version then and was it a hit back in the day? Was it banned or anything? I have no real knowledge about it but I want that to change. Only played the Speccy one. Good in its day, but very simplistic and dated now. Things have moved on, so it would be hard to re...

The Vectrex is overrated rubbish (IMO) so I don't really care. Very good info though, thanks.

Re: Is there bullying/steamrolling on this forum?

Have you reported the offending posts? No report = mods assuming everyone is being grown up and not getting upset by anything here, since none of it is (imo) offensive or of significant detriment to the thread. No, definitely not. I put as much in the threads too, it didn't seem it would help eithe...
