    I know it's not new that people are asking "when does it get dumped" but it sort of took a little extreme in the last days.
    so my suggestion is, how about you give the kids their own corner?
    sort of like a "controlled" testing area. Posts don't get count and threads get deleted (or closed) once the game in question has been dumped.
    that being said, i know that it could be a problem because these kind of threads sort of condone asking for ROMS.

    Yeah those threads get really annoying real quick don't they.

    I don't think they need a special location, I just agree, when the game arrives, just delete the thread, and let the contributors figure it out where their post count went.

    As for condoning piracy, come on get real, this forum commits no crimes, but the whole damn lot of us have no problem with using downloads, and anyone looking will see that.

    They are stupid threads. I mean, for God's sake, WHY DON'T YOU TRY USING GOOGLE??? I didn't find out how to use roms and emulators by writing on forums. I was smart enough to figure it out for myself and using a search engine. IF THE GAME IS OUT IT WILL BE ON THE FRONT PAGE LIST! [​IMG]

    User should receive a 3 day suspension.

    Too harsh if you ask me, but a 10% increase in warning might do the trick [​IMG]

    They won't even notice it.

    EDIT: One day suspension would probably be more reasonable and sufficient to deter the activity.

    The only way it can be improved is by increasing the amount the warn increases on each offense.
