Chappy

The Full Story

Recommended Posts

well,due to my 'singular affliction' I am forced to be inside when the sun shines,so I spend my days here on the computer. I am learning html and how to build websites.When I get tired, I go to the boards. They are,literally,my main contact with other people.So you can understand why I have been so disheartened over what has happened to TechTv and the boards.

Anyone needs help.I try to offer what little knowledge I have. I'll be here,and still be there too....as long as Pete C and Sultan, ProDriver,and a few others stay.

Chappy,

Thanks for doing your best to notify people of the truth of G4's evil plans. :thumbsup:

Gave people time to say goodbye, and to send friends messages or post links to other boards. Pete's thread allowing people to post their new board homes was helpful too. And he specifically mentioned Besttechie, as did others. :thumbsup:

I have spent two or three hours over there reading threads pertaining to this latest G4 shipwreck, after seeing B's thread here welcoming new members. I thought what's up with that, then went over to see for myself.

I hadn't been over there for months until last night to check for my PMs, and didn't look at my main page Tech Support board long enough to see anything going on (if it was hitting the fan even as early as 7:45 PDT), and so today was utterly amazed at the chaos. But trusted you and Pete and mlegg (sp?) as always, and never have trusted that weird Faye person.

And what is up with G4 relaxing the rules to turn it into even more of a garbage pit, even allowing porn etc? To bad they can't be sued for contributing to the delinquincy of a minor, since their stated target is male minors? Looks like only thing they will go after is the trolls. And that's probably only because it eats up their server bandwidth. Ha! :rolleyes:

I did wonder at what Leoville's 'Wayne in Akron's sly hints of knowing more than anybody else were about...so Leo must have pulled a CFH show deal or something?? :unsure: And the tech support board changing to Call For Help??? And someone said there is now a Tech Sector on G4 list???

I think something is extremely fishy, as in rotten carcass fish with G4 PTB. If they are bringing back the CFH show and board, why drive away those very tech support board people who would have happily thrived with it back??? G4 must be doping or something to be so dumb as to dis the tech board helpers and the ones who would watch and support a CFH show...but then they never have shown brains or even common sense about anything as far as I can tell. So now alot of the G4 posters who made big macho noise, are back peddle groveling to get back in good graces with the new wolf pack leader Faye. Hypocrites! :angry::angry2::wacko:

I'm thankful for this wonderful board of Besttechie's, and hope and pray it stays friendly, safe, decent, clean, peaceful, and always a good board family respecting each other and caring about each other. We are unique in the special community of members I think, with a great bunch of people and I pray it stays as good as it has always been.

P.S. Welcome to all the newcomers. I hope you enjoy being at the best board anywhere around... Stop in at the cafe for a cup of coffee and gab with us.

God bless everyone.

Hey, new here, from G4-ums. One thing I was wondering about Chappy, on the list that said 'being deleted or consolidated', could they have meant the teh help was being consolidated into the cal for help thread they were making? They are bringing call for help to G4 Tv, so it seems to make sense. Anyway, I'm having issues with other things G4 has done with the other sections of their forum, so thanks for the link to here Chappy, it's nice to see some people I know here as well.

G4 never made me a Mod for all the countless hours I have spent over many months

cruising the forums and reporting Posts that went beyond the rules and helping New MODS that were sitting around watching their TV's when they should have been doing their (Have to agree with this one) *Payless Jobs*..

Yes for all that do not know, a MOD does not get Paid for their time & efforts.. It's Voluntary..

Got maybe one or two *Thanks* from a couple of the Long Timers...

Most of the Threads They *Locked* I would have *Deleted* because the *Content/Links were Still Left In* and should not have been seen by younger members or the links were of questionable things that should not be *Posted* because of *Legal Reasons*..

Oh well, such is life..

Rock on!!..

He has you fooled.

read his threads, all the help he gives is coded so as to help you fix your problem all the while you are altering your machine so Dave will have total control over the "net.

Oh thought I was talking about mac. Sorry.

In all seriousness Dave you need not say anything here. We know you.

I would not expect anthing less from *4.

Porn ok

Spam ok

Flaming ok

trolls ok

Friends helping friends BAD BAD BAD!

No, not the way the list was released, thats why most of us think that this Tech Support renamed as CFH, is just backpeddaling to save face by G4 Admin, and make me look like a fool.

This is a snip from that release, see for yourself where it says "Ditto" right after one thats "redundant - killed"

Going or being consolidated:

Anime Unleashed becomes part of Barbed Wire Biscuit (we will break out shows as needed if they become popular)

Arena (will be added to the new G4/Tech TV classics board)

Fastlane (being consolidated with Street Fury into The Whip Set board)

Filterater nominations

Players (classics)

Robot Wars (classics)

Sweat (classics)

Video Game Vixens (classics)

G4 Promos (dead)

G4 Photo galleries (hidden)

Gaming and Tech news (people already talk about this stuff in other boards, redundant, killed)

Tech Support (ditto)

Pretty self-explanatory...

Indeed, I don't know why G4 admins are so power hungry.

"OMG no more mods even though we need them".

By the way this post shows up as RESULT 4 in a Google search for "Miss Fae"

All I can say is what I have always said. G4 has and will always be a joke period. I left that hell hole back in May of 2004 and never looked back. Whenever I did swing by G4 was only to cheek my PM's and say a quick hello to a few people and left.

Who cares about G4 anyhow ? may they burn in hell. Seems to me, all they have ever wanted was a free for all anyways. Let em promote porn, spam, etc. I always said all they ever wanted was some 12 year old to be the mods their. Well guess I was right all this time. They don't want law & order.

I wouldn't sweat it Chappy.

Just my own opinion, but the only reason I ever heard of g4 was due to the Laporte/ TTV meltdown.

I checked g4 out for awhile and tried to keep a straight face. It was hard.

Somehow trying to compensate for the loss of technical forums geared towards greater understanding of computers, hardware, software, etc. with g4 just didn't cut it.

There's only so much that you can learn from a network led by and for the most part populated by 14 year olds with a joystick for a brain.
