i think its a valid thing to ask mate it just seems to be a wast of time and server space to me all the mods are going to be doing is removing posts and banning members if you ask me with the way this is set up right now i think the dw staff need to let us in on the why its been opend again

its been opened to discuss things related to cable But not to post anything related to hacking any form of it its quite simple to follow there are rules in place or is this the reason most members come here for a fix when the keys roll?

how can you say we come for a fix ive got loads of posts on this forum just like a lot of the members and id like to point out that its the members that make the forum not the staff if you have no members you have no forum i dont need a fix in any way for boxs or modems i came to this forum to help and to be helped and i like the way we have all worked together on the forum over the years it seems to me that you the staff are now at the point that its don,t question us or els to me as i say the members make the forum and i feel we have the right to ask or question the staff if we feel its right to do so is this not true ???

when a potential prison sentence is a menace, the owners of this board can do what ever they need to do to stay the right side of the law imho

why are you going to get banned????

you asked a question and i answered it

just because i mod dont give me the right to just ban you

banning is a democratic process between admin and moderators

theres more to discuss about this subject then just getting fix for this card fix for that card etc..etc..
if someone post they have a problem with the stb you might have had the same problem and resolved it and then can post the info on to sort out the problem for example

I think it's great that the section is open again.

I would never expect the admin or mods to risk their freedom, I also came here to help and while it maybe in a slightly different format I would prefer this to no section at all.

As has been said this isn't other sites and bannings are rarely arbitary and unlike many sites you get a short ban as a warning on the 1st attempt unless you have done something really out of order.

Have Fun

yes i get that mate but as you pay ****** media for this service get them out to fix it if you have a problem as you pay them for the service so its down to them to fix it not you if you ask me

It was a good question well answered in my view. I can see both points but its more important that admin keep themselves and their members out of the clink. So its best for the mod team to err on the side of caution imv.
