Good question, I think they'd need him now.   laff

Welcome to Peel E.bg.Tfan!

Please don't expect this thread to last long.
It has nothing to do with you in person, but it seems that this thread is pretty "spammy". (It doesn't make that much sense to me)

Please take this picture as a friendly advice from me   smile

This for example was spam!

Posting, without adding anything to the discussion.
Or posting just for the sake of it (Putting your post count up).

urban-dictionary.com has a nice explanation for it:

spam stands for:
Stupid
Pointless
Annoying
Messages

Though that is not the original meaning as far as I know.

And now: Please leave this thread for a mod to decide what should happen.
Perhaps he, or VelourFog thinks that it shall live   wink

SPAM doesn't stand for anything. It originated from a Monty Python (UK Comedy) episode.

I really just wanted to reiterate that the thread was about to be locked. And it should be.

or that. Those were totally unnecessary posts, and it's ultimately up to the mods to decide whether or not it should be closed. Don't spam about spam and don't do things like "In before the lock!" Just to knock your post count up a notch (BAM!)

I don't see how the second was spam at all. I was just trying to explain the actions from the first post. I wasn't really expecting anyone to care about some off-hand comment in the first post since I thought it would have been locked in a few minutes anyway. If I really wanted to go into anal mode, I could say that your's and the majority of posts in this thread are off-topic.

And this pointless, assinign, thread should be locked anyway.

ShortRound: The second one was SPAM because you're not supposed to tell the mods how to do their jobs. It's in the FAQ, somewhere, I believe.

1. Posting in a doomed thread is a waste of bandwidth.  That's why pointless threads are locked in the first place: to keep people from posting in them.  The mods don't want you posting in such threads before they're locked anymore than they want you posting in them after they're locked.

2. You are not a mod.  It's not up to you whether or not a thread should be locked.  If the mods decide that a thread should be locked they will lock it.  If they decide that the thread is okay, they'll leave it open.  Either way, they don't need you to tell them how to do their jobs.

I see, feedback isn't appreciated, got ya.

I was really just adding my 2 cents about the fact that it should be locked, I wasn't trying to demand anything from the staff here.

Bubblegum Tate wouldn't be on Earth's (not U.S.) side, He'd be on the Globe-Trotter side, which might not have been playing when we saw them playing, which I don't remember, I need to watch again.

Hey McFly, you know you walk by putting one foot in front of the other, right?  I'm not telling you how to walk, I'm just giving feedback on how you should do it.
