: It's not fair old chap
: atp 07 September, 2012, 02:30:34 PM
Ok I understand that as a newbie I have to earn my right of passage, but I think that it seems a tad hard to be excluded from making a comment or releasing some feelings in the FILM DISCUSSION section, as the Dredd movie is the biggest thing to happen with regards to 2000Ad etc at the moment.
Just for my information and for the benefit of other new members, how long do we wait for increased permissions, or how many posts should we make etc. Thanks in advance for any info that may be forthcoming.

Just upgraded you so I guess that answers your question! ;) Sorry for the "harshness"of it, can't be helped!

Er, can I ask exactly the same question? I'm happy to post in other threads but I'm not a regular reader of the prog these days and I'm sure I can only talk for so long about what I last watched/read/heard/ate etc...

I'm really not that interesting! Not compared to a 3D action movie anyway  ;)

Sorry guys, there was some awful trolling, especially in the film thread, by one twerp in particular. He'd get banned then just sign up under a different name. He was effectively killing the board so drastic measures had to be taken.

Welcome to you both, I can't wait to see what you thought of the film!
: Re: It's not fair old chap
: QuickQuag 07 September, 2012, 09:44:47 PM
Cheers Mr Wells

It's still a wee way* before the movie gets down to NZ, so hopefully I can be approved by then!

(*4/10/2012 according to my theatre of choice, Peter Jackson's Roxy cinema in Miramar Wellington)

Can an administrator bot give me member status please so I can post on the film board please? Least I think that's the issue - I've got no REPLY function on the majority of the boards, but the thing is I can't even get into my profile now and I definately did have access before cos I have an avatar. Any help would be muchos appreciated.

It's a very wise precaution.  The troll he's referring-to killed the alt.comics.2000ad newsgroup, and we don't want this forum to go the same way.

Thanks for the upgrade, I feel like a cyber man so I’m off to delete something on the way to the FILM DISCUSSION section to throw in my two pennies worth.

I have no idea how one can kill a forum. However, please, please don't tell me! I am well aware that mentioning his name here is rather like mentioning the name of the Scottish Play in a theatre...
: Re: It's not fair old chap
: revis84 13 September, 2012, 04:00:36 PM
Any chance I can be upgraded, I know my only previous Dredd experience was the 95 movie and LOTF but I have learned the error of my ways  :D

Plus I really wanna comment in the movie threads!
: Re: It's not fair old chap

Hi chaps, I just got directed to this thread by Dark Jimbo. I was wondering if you could give me either full access to the forums or even just to the Spoiler/Prog forum please. Wanted to start reviewing. Thanks in advance  ;)

So, it's one of those "one bad apple spoiled the bunch" sort of situations.
Don'tcha just hate that crap?

It's so screwed up when one guy goes around and screws things up for the good guys.

So, yeah.  I'm super-new. I think this is like my 6th (ish) post. 

So, how long do I need to wait, or how many posts should I make, or how politely do I need to ask to be allowed access to the rest of the forum?

I'm American, and my access to 2000 AD progs is severely limited, so the amount of topics I can jump on is limited, as well.

I hope I can become a helpful, enjoyable, contributing member of these forums, regardless.

My home computer has been blocked from reading the forum as apparently I'm a stealth spammer.  It's not a shared IP so not sure how this could happen.  Unless you consider occasional witterings to be spam?

How can I get it unblocked?
