Still lots of the same members and lots of the old mods so games will be played to try and find an excuse to boot me. BUT it will be me showing I can be a good boy :mrgreen: at the moment they are fishing around to see if they can use this forum as an excuse to ban me. We will see.

I wonder if Mr P of I own AoS, respect me, fame has also been invited to register with the new Wigwam. If he does it will be amusing.

All bans are off, anyone can join. DQ is posting at the moment, anymore of you want to join in the fun. Just join and feel the warmth :lol: :lol: :lol:

But laughing aside I admire what the new owners are doing, it is a fresh start from them that is for sure. The only problem is some if not most of the moderators disaggree with it and will be the big problem the owners have, not us. There will also be lots of biased moderation going on that we all need to observe and comment on as some of the mods will try to reapply the status quo. One of them is commenting on the banned members thread about what a bad decision he thinks it is for us to be let back.

Isn't that a bit like making a "Remain" campaigner the next Prime Minister? Oh...wait... :lol:

C'mon you lot, join up fun is a brewing. Not instigated by me, but I am sure I will be the focus of a lot of it, and I will just watch it as I am there as trade, NVA not Dr Bunsen Honeydew the fun loving Muppet :mrgreen: I want to instigate a loan scheme there which is in the process of being passed to the owners for approval, as this is looking like a proper professional site to instigate it on now, with a members base to make it really worth while. I am going through the mods but there may be some games played there so I may have to bypass them, but at the moment I am in limbo. Made a couple of posts in the intro, which one of the mods tried to make as an excuse to bin me - refering to this forum as the reason - it seems it didn't work as I am still there, but under instruction not to post until my trade status is granted.

All new trade applicants are being held in limbo until our "contract" offers are sorted. Also trade members will only be allowed to post in their trade area in the future. A pity as I would really like to contribute information and experience (not about nva). It is frustrating to see something posted that is blatantly wrong or information requested that I could give. It would be nice if there was a way to have two memberships one as part of the slurping trade members (which I am now part of :mrgreen: ) and one as an individual with no mention of nva, but I am sure they wouldn't allow it.

That does seem a rather blinkered view. I know there is always the problem of shilling and spamming to be taken into account but you'd think they would welcome the knowledge of people who actually understand the technical 'nuts and bolts" of the hobby. I suppose it would have to be come-one-come-all though, and there are far more trade account holders who are not of a technical bent who would just spend their days thread crapping and trying to flog their bling. Shame though.
