Default "searching" and the overall negativity here.....

sponsored links

 
looks like the moderator is really busy with his "please search" routine. is this fun for you, and, is it necessary?
PLEASE CHANGE THE NAME OF THIS "Forum" to "ARCHIVE" because clearly you are not promoting any discussion
thanks for letting me vent, as this is really starting to get to me. what happened to this forum because it used to be really good -- especially about a year ago!?

*sigh* OK to save a mod from posten this [B]i'll[/B] say it...
as you know the forum has gotten drasticaly slower then it was [B]about a year ago[/B] this is because there have been roughly 10[B]+[/B] posts on each topic, which we [B]could[/B] have had in [B]one[/B] Thread, now this has resulted in massive bandwidth problems, now to keep the forum [B]descently[/B] fast, we have to get people using the search feature, as if they just post a topic, on a question that has already been answered, numerous times, it's just wasting [B]more[/B] bandwidth (resulting in it getting even [B]more[/B] slow, now, if you would search, you would find the answer you are after [B]faster[/B] as usualy questions aren't answered for a few hours, so why [B]not[/B] search? it seems far more logical and far more considerate to the forum, now yes, alot of questions have not been answered, and yes, alot of times it's hard to find a topic that is [B]simular[/B] to your question, but for that you can simply re-bring up an older (slightly simular) topic, you can make a post on it, and someone will help then (rather then creating an entrely new thread), now there is also the [B]FAQ[/B] Folder (Frequently Asked Questions) that will have the answer for atleast half of the questions posted on this forum,
there, this is the reasonlol

Well said Konga. We basically see most of the same questions everyday, so the mod is trying to get everyone to use the search.

Yes, 4 example this thred ***********.cdrom-guide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=187317

Was just posted but when tekken 4 was 1st relesed (jap ver) there where like 10 posts all 5 pages long about both if them. If some 1 would have just [b]searched[/b] then they could have found the following:

***********.cdrom-guide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=74111&highlight=tekken+ virtua

***********.cdrom-guide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=74020&highlight=tekken+ virtua

You might want to watch what you say around here, especialally to the mods, just some advice since you seem to be replying with some rude comments.
