Who thinks TeamCyclops should check their cards for defects
Do you think if TeamCyclops check their evolutions before shipping?
Yes, because i dont want to be disappointed! 43 79.63%
No 9 16.67%
It doesnt matter, i just want the card. 2 3.70%
Voters: 54. You have already voted on this poll

I'll try to remember to clean this up tomorrow, but for now this should do.

I also have the last page saved, but it got deleted while I writing a reply.

Their software kicks giant cyclops ass. No doubt about it. They rock at features and all that good stuff but their hardware can't be explained in words how crappy it is.

I don't have any experience in their forums myself but judging by your post and the other guy here who said got his thread deleted, they act like jerks. Although, I don't have any knowledge of the team itself so I will refrain from saying anything except my opinion.

Anyways, that type of behavior from the team, or any sorts of moderators really... is unacceptable. Simply shameful. Free speech FTW!


By the way, I removed my post above as a joke

"This has taken a turn... for the interesting!"

I'm sure they are trying to eliminate errors with their cards, but sometimes issues are unavoidable (the problem comes from the thickness of the card - and there is nothing they can do to change that at the moment)

Lol. I was seriously about to comment on that.

I was going to say:

"Did a mod just get modded? Wow. 0_o"

Lol.

Someone from Team Cyclops should be a member here like DSX Guru and G6 Team. Don't you think? Then it will be REALLY interesting. They wouldn't have the power to delete any post they didn't like.

Actually it is pretty sad that so many forums feel the need the edit, delete, and/or other wise so many posts and threads. I guess that's why I prefer the forums that the worst thing that can happen to a thread is that it gets dumped into a thread dumping ground, but no thread is EVER edited, deleted or otherwise modified by mods...

No one is bann... well, er just before the last revolution there was someone who started playing around with banning people for very short amounts of times, and others indefinitely, but we're back to no banning again now... (Traditionally, it's also a ban free forum, the best that you can aspire to is a special tag.)

How is this for fkd up.
The company that ships for cyclops had their owner arrested for continuing to sell DS cards.
They have pulled all DS flash cards from their website.
They always pull through....but good luck to anyone waiting from a replacement from them.

Are you permanently banned now? What'd you do this time?

[EDIT]
They've not banned me yet, although the thread deletion concerns especially when it concerns a problem which they appear to be trying to sweep under the rug, as it were. IF they had been smart, they would've put in a post about what QA they do do, and what they're doing to reduce the number of defective units, and a new policy for handling DOAs then locked the thread.

Deletion without comment makes me queasy... esp. simce I've got a DOA...

No I am not banned but I have logged out and probably won't bother posting much anymore; although I will keep reading, as I cannot speak my mind without getting another ban

Here is a screenshot from cached google search, earlier results than yours.

You're probably being banned by spen. That dude is a straight up child. If you have anything negative to say about the CyloDS, he starts to whine. He's a huge Cyclo fanboy. So I'm willing to be it's him who's messing with you.

It seems like Sorak and Spen83 are pretty young. I mean, take a look at that one comment by Spen in the new raids in France thread...

Anyways, defect rate seems to be pegged at c. 30% no matter how many people vote, in the new defect thread... pretty sad...

A poll on the Team Cyclops support forums is naturally going to be very skewed, though, since the most likely reason someone would come to the support forums is for support when there's something wrong with their card.

I've also seen at least two people on those forums say that they sent their cards into Team Cyclops for replacement when the problems they described don't sound anything like a defective kit, so I wonder how many perfectly working cards Team Cyclops is having returned.


...word is bondage...
