    I once mistakenly joined a programming forum, as I needed a bit of help to solve an algorithm I was working on.
    So I signed up, then realised, I wasn;t allowed to post for 24 hours whilst they "approved" my application (to a free forum :roll: ) and even then I would have to reply to 20 posts before I could ask a question.
    And they were also Yanks.

    What the hell happened to the mods of forums like that fo them to think such a thing is a good idea?

    obviously for pure banter and laughs, nothing beats the old crudder :lol:

    OK dropped a clanger, but I suppose in a way it does work as in Were is a past form of the verb to be. We're is a contraction of we are.

    To be fair, this IS the crudcatcher. Where you get ostracised for being in possesion of Knowledge.
    And I mean, take Pudsey up there, with his bizarre ramblings. Would you honestly trust any advice from that man? :lol:

    They have some nice manufacturer specific forums on there and I needed some advice on GT stuff and they have a few people who know a lot about them. Was asked to post photos of my problematic pivots, but I couldn't until I had enough posts :(. Couldn't post links either.

    I don't know if it's to filter out the idiot first time posters, to boost ego or is some elitist thing. Problem is you then end up getting people posting mindless drivel just to get their post count up so they can have more access.

    Just imagine people posting mindless drivel here! ;)
