    This was a silly thought that spawned from lot's of people who "forget" to read the rules and dive straight into the "OMG WHERE IS TEH ROMZ?" question. Why not create a link at the top that says ROMS/MP3/WAREZ and the people who actually click on it get's confronted with a stupid picture with a message along the lines of, "WE DON'T HAVE ROMS, DIDN'T YOU READ THE RULES"? Sorry if this was a waste of time.

    Actually, that's a pretty amusing idea - especially if combined with that avatar of yours [​IMG]

    may be an idea... but... it might create the image we have if people just see this link... but might be a try though. let's hear the mods opinion about this one.

    It would be amusing, but I don't see it working. There are going to be people who click on it, see the image, and still ask for roms. Yes guys, there are people stupid enough to still ask.

    whatever we do people will still ask for roms
    it's the same with any "warez" infomation site/forum on the web
    people read the rules but either ignore them or are too stupid to understand them

    Even if clicking it redirects the user to the part of the rules where it says "no ROMs etc etc"?

    Probably...

    i think its a good ideia and it would decrease the rom requests number, not all, but it would decrease some...

    LOL, Myke you should still do the image [​IMG]

    But I agree with the staffers on this, it won't stop the lazy bastards that don't read the rules anyway. It's not like we'd be able to see people reactions to it either so while the ideas funny, there's no pay off...

    Good idea just not practical...

    Well I don't think it would work but wouldn't it be great if we made a page on the forum which links you to a flas basically dissing the hell out of them
    We can all do it, just like the staff do when the post pics when closing topics.

    I think it should happen just to see a sickening drawing by Myke to scare the f**k outta n00bies lol.

    I like the idea, but as others have said its not practical.

    Lol that's the best and funniest idea I've ever heard.
    I may get tempted to click on the link to see your picture though.
    That'd give this site a bad reputation though.........

    Mu suggestion is in the the biggest writing possible we place a message in our sigs saying "We Don't Supply Roms!!!"
