Well it is what it is, it is an open forum with all to reply. So this is no closed club where you can do what you want, use Whatsapp for that. I think the rules are clear and ok. There are shitty threads, there are gems, there is help and advice when asked. Most of the treads do seem to go off topic a lot. The community is big so there will be al kinds of people hanging around, good and bad, ones you like ones you dislike, pro's and newbies. As long as we go around fine with each other and show respect you will be fine. You can discuss and disagree, you can have an opinion. As a newbie myself in the scene, I had a lot of great answers that showed me the right way. Some treads you feel welcome, some not....just my opinion.
BTW, I hope Centerflank will come back soon, as he is a Tron Fan and will help you out anytime! Great value for the community.
