Lord Butterslip: Thanks for your contribution. The whining used to annoy me too. If you have an issue with anyone's posting, please feel free to use the post report function under their names in the offending item, and one of the moderators will have a closer look. TCN is not a place where complaining loudly enough gets you what you want. A reasonable and polite PM will do far more than throwing a hissy fit across the forum.
sNarah: So do I. And like I said, it's in Sys for a very good reason.
Fago!: TCN is not a social forum like After Hours. It harks back to a time when each forum wasn't such an isolated xenophobic island suspicious of strangers or newbies. Right now I can't think of a better way to explain it than I did in post #5 (which is slightly paraphrased from something community manager Dav said, actually):
TCN is not a regular forum. There's a reason it was created as part of the Sys category instead of, say, Rec. It's alt.stupid for Boards.ie (look that up if you don't know what it was/is). TCN is part of boards as an entity, as opposed to a discussion forum offered by Boards.ie the service. It's a subtle but very important distinction.
