    We have consolidated the rules for the forum above and made a couple changes. Lets keep all silliness in general discussion and out of the other sub forums. The vender forums (expat, etc) are up to the venders for allowing or not allowing our usual silliness. They will moderate their individual forum.

    Professionalism... If your post wouldnt be allowed to be shown/explained to kids then pass on posting it.

    @DYSPHORIC JOY has some great ideas and we will be implementing them soon. You all will love it!

    Really..? This is a children’s forum now? I completely grasp the “we’re not babysitters so act like adults” thing and the no name-calling but man.. we already have all curse words ***’d out I figured that would suffice.

    Idk I’m just some lowly idiot that makes 2 pieces of metal into one for a living. Don’t mind me.

    What happened? Back when this forum was pretty high speed and had a ton of active members it was wide open. Now it is pretty boring most of the time with few active members. Did something happen to predicate these changes that I missed?

    It gets tighter and tighter so less people participate.

    Are we implementing group buys again?

    We need an orange cleaver with zombie green scales.

    I feel like if people are letting their kids run free on the internet, that’s on them to have that talk. Policing the rest of the population isn’t going to do anything but give the kids a false sense of how things work.

    Sounds to me like someone has their kid on the forum now and wants to keep it PG for them..

    If anyone is interested in starting a 100% kid-friendly forum I know @Bcamos could probably build it.

    This is why there are so many “offended” people in the world now.

    This post seems pretty political to me. Lock it up

    The kid comment was an example. So far as i know there are no kids on this forum for obvious reasons.

    Act like adults. You got it.

    On a side note, it would be cool if you wouldnt mind doing a welding thread. Id like to learn more about it to be honest.

    Yeah but like...what kind of adults? Are we the kind of adults that draw our name in the snow with pee or are we the kind that wear suits and write with fancy pens?

    Maybe wear jeans and write your name in the snow with a fancy pen?
