Older members will remember "The Noose." This is the same basic concept, but with less meanness.
For you new guys, the idea here is simple. Whenever a member gets banned, there will be a post made here with the members name, a link to the offending post, and when they will be unbanned. When that persons ban expires, the post in here gets deleted.
This way, whenever someone gets sent away, you guys can just check here instead of wondering why X person was banned.
Just some general disclaimers:
- Unlike the original Noose, the idea here is not to add one more layer to a persons punishment. This is not a "Wall of Shame." This thread is only here for informational purposes. Once your ban has expired, the post about your ban will be deleted.
- Permanent bans will be displayed here for a bit longer, but they too will go away after a while.
- If you notice that a persons account shows as banned, but the duration of the ban has passed, please let us know. The forum software is supposed to unban people automatically, but it acts funny sometimes and doesn't do it, so we don't always notice.
- As always, if you feel you have been banned unjustly, you're welcome to email the mod who banned you and make your case. Our emails are in the stickied Rules thread.
If you have any questions or complaints, feel free to send me a PM.

The Rules: Follow Them or Die
#1: Common Decency is the basic law of the land. This means no excessive flaming, carrying on petty vendettas, cross-forum/website drama, trolling, or any other childish behavior Exactly what constitutes a violation will be judged on a case-by-case basis, but if "Common Decency" is a tough concept for you to grasp, you aren't welcome here.
#2: "Official" threads can only be created by moderators / admins, unless prior permission is granted. Any unauthorized "Official" threads will be locked and/or deleted.
#3: No homework threads / posts. We're not going to do your research for you.
#4: Do not necro dead threads. A thread is considered dead when it has not had a reply for more than 14 days. The exception to this rule is if you're posting an update to the original post.
#5: If something is NSFW, CLEARLY MARK IT AS SUCH. There is no such thing as too much warning. If something is excessively NSFW, ask a mod before posting.
#6: Threads with the "DEBATE" tag will be held to stricter standards of conduct than normal threads. If you can't debate like a grownup, take your ball and go home. (Hell Fury will be adding the specific rules shortly)
#7: The Moderators Are Not Your Personal Army. Threatening to report someone / involve the mods in some way will bring our wrath upon you. We are spiteful beings. If someone is breaking the rules, just use the report button; the report system is VASTLY improved over the old forums.
#8: Game / list threads are allowed now; however, games that revolve around post counts / who posts next / last / etc are forbidden. "The last person to post wins!", "The person below me is ___", etc are examples of bad games.
#9: Rape jokes can act as a trauma trigger for individuals sensitive to the matter. Rape jokes are allowed but must be placed within spoiler tags and a warning must be given because a user cannot know if spoiler tags are blocking a rape joke or a spoiler without a content warning. Below is an example of correct usage of the spoiler tag for a rape joke (minus the rape joke). [rule added by Hell Fury]
Warning: Rape joke ahead.
Warning: Rape joke ahead. [spoiler]hello![/spoiler]
Contacting a Mod / Ban Appeals
If you feel that you've been banned unfairly or as a result of a misunderstanding, you're welcome to appeal your ban via e-mail (making a second account is not the answer). If you're appealing a ban, please be sure to include your username and a link to the post / thread that you were banned for.
If you have any other questions and for whatever reason you can't PM a mod, e-mail is your friend.
Our emails are:
- Hell Fury: [email protected]
- Golden Helmet: [email protected]
- Angelsea: [email protected]

Lots of people have been asking questions about builds or problems they're having in my build a computer thread. Rather than keep that going (because not everyone will see the questions there), I'm going to open this thread. It's an official thread so after a couple of days I will sticky it. I'm leaving it unstuck for now so people see it.
Ask anything you want from build advice to troubleshooting. This is not the thread for new discoveries or talking about random networking/programming theory, though. If it's "which is better" or "I'm having X problem" it's okay. Otherwise make your own thread.

This might be a bad idea. We have a ton of chat threads already, but they all seem to kind of lose track (somehow). I know there's a large group of you who think I just want attention, or don't even like me. I thought this could probably work out though, because I know I'm not the only one on here that suffers from depression. Think of this like the insane hangout thread, but not for complete madness. Think of it like a thread for when you're feeling down, or fucked up, and just need to rant, or vent, or would like someone to talk to for a bit, get your mind off what's bothering you.
It might also be a bad idea because, well, do we really need a thread dedicated to negativity and depression?
Anyways, some of you may know that I suffer from depression. I get hit with an episode about once a month. Sometimes it's worse than others. Sometimes it's just sort of blase. I've been working out and editing my book lately, which has really kept me up beat. Even took up some light reading to get some leisurely time that isn't electronic. But for the past few days, I don't want to do any of that. I'm just in a haze, waiting for my brain to kick back into gear.
Some of you have pointed out my behavior recently. I figured it would be best to shine some light on the subject. I'm not trying to be nasty, or start fights. I'm not begging for attention. I'm just having an episode, and this is one of the few communities where I have people I can talk to. So I vent here; just not in a very constructive way.
So for those of you that do sometimes get a bit down, no need to go to the happy/angry/sad thread, or jump into the chaos of the insane hangout thread, or hope to start a convo in the chatter thread. If you got a problem, or just need to put your thoughts down, feel free to come here and speak your mind, if only to rant and get distracted for a bit.
This isn't a strategy guide. It's just a water cooler for getting stuff off your chest.
I guess I'll start.
I have no job.
I'm in over $20k debt and counting.
Debt collectors have started calling me.
For the past week I've been to several interviews, and I'm not sure if any of them are going to work out, though so far, really hoping for one of them.
I have no friends, aside from those of you I talk to on here, or offline, and a chick I know from another community.
I stumbled a bit with a girl I liked, and well, I don't even want to get into it.
I know these problems may not seem like much. My lady friend (not from here) is in a bad spot too. In comparison, aside from my financial woes, she has it worse. But when it comes to personal problems, it's kind of hard not to put your own on a different scale, because they affect you personally.

And it's causing me no end of some serious health troubles... Doc says it'll resolve itself in another 4 months, though.

It's been a long time since I've been active on here (I was an '05 kid, now I have no post count). What happened? What's up?
