i got back online today after some time out. got an IT job recently and have more time on the computer. remembered how great a forum this use to be and helped me out loads in my student days. I pay for my sky now because I earn more than enough.

I don't want no downloads or my post count to go up. Not interested but find it disgusting that my post were removed for no apparent reason. The minimum courtesy should be to let the user know why they are removed.

I made just 3 posts

1 was to just say I am glad to be back. That was truly the case as finding this site again brought back some great memories...wiiman..mickie..rat..kniner..Ian..the dentist and many more.

2nd was to post a uber code in the freebies section which gives many that don't know about it a free lunch.

3rd was a simple suggestion for a careers section. It took me 6 years to break into an IT job. since then I have got 2 people in just through my recommendation. Unfortunately that's how it is now a days its not about who you are but who you know.

On realizing my posts are all deleted and slightly annoyed I thought let me just contact Rat and express my frustrations. "you cannot pm because you have 0 posts!

Is this really how returning/new users are treated? wow times have changed.

Regards
mwf

Thanks mate

@5 years ago thats true. I am 28 and used the forums a lot when the wii came out and virgin cable days. I then began the working life where I didn't have as much free time.

Now I do support at a Media firm and have plenty of spare time on my desk thats why I decided to log in again.

Just remember a good forum is never left to long it becomes an addiction. You have not posted for 5 years? No excuses are necessary about you have been busy. Most people on here may stray for a while but they don't leave it for 5 years. Welcome back and best wishes to you and I sincerely hope that DigitalWorldz can be of some use to your Media firm. I thank you.

its subjective to the person... I am not making excuses nor care that I have been away for 5 years. I know why that is the case. anyway thanks for the welcome I am more here for the chill to be honest. :)
