Bike forums unprotected!

Does anyone notice a lack of purple stars in this screen shot....maybe this explains why the "omg desktop" thread is still alive with all its scantily clad women. I figured it would be shot down after the first post.

Not sure what you mean by "scantily clad", I see more skin walking down the street than that!

Often the mods only check out threads if there is a complaint about them.

I'd like to lodge a complaint against this thread, please. There's not nearly enough red stars in that screenshot....

What he said. I know there are at least 3 mods who very often, if not always, run in invisable mode. Play nice and you don't have to worry.

I guess he's talking about my BMX XXX desktop.

That was the same ad that showed up in gaming magazines...and as far as I've known no complaints were lobbied with the magazines over it....the game itself had some complaints, but from my understanding the majority of those were "this game bites monkey genitals".

Seriously, everyone I knew who did play that game were pretty dissapointed....abut as badly as I was with "Juiced".....don't buy that game...Juiced was utter garbage.

Something I think many folks overlook is the fact that, many of our decisions to keep or not, are based on the reports we get. I know for myself, if there was a thread/post that did not directly violate forum guidelines, but offended people enough to start reporting it, i would delete it. But if the same post did not bother anybody, and did not really violate forum guidelines, i would probably let it be.

Oh no ... there are no mods online.

Hang on, I'm a mod. I think I'm here.
