A lot of Forums have a "Junk Thread", a dump for all the useless posts. All posts moved here do not count towards your "stars".  Can we implement something like this?

Exactly the point, when they find their posts wasting away in there & learn to stop.

A board will be created for meaningless discussions and the posts there WILL NOT COUNT towards your post total. All other meaningless posts from the forums will be deleted.

Thanks Eli, it was getting out of hand.
(Dully Thanked & Applauded)

No, what I said was that the posts get moved there by the mods.

Why do people think that they are somehow more 'important' because they have simply wasted more of their time making useless posts resulting in a higher post count?

Yitzter I think E created this for you ;D
Don't blame this all on me. I like to chat and what other forum as active member at 4AM, I already told you to make a shmoozing thread. I don't care about the posts.

It's all in the stars, they demand respect where ever you go.

Why do you think the mods start with 5 stars, and not just "yellow" stars but blue-ish stars. Because people will know they are important, like mods for example!

Why did you need to make 3 seperate posts to say the same thing?

Because I will write something, and then a minute later think of something else. It's too much of a hassle to go and modify my post every single time so I just write another post.

Dan, i think some topics are becoming chat-rooms, can we get a dansdeals.com/chatroom or maybe have it all on one page.

That actually sounds like a pretty cool idea, except that it takes a lot of work to set up and moniter.

I like forums, it's fine for me.

I know some of you are just dying to hear what the maskana was with my phone. To get you up to speed, I threw my phone at the wall and it only showed a white screen from then on. I bought a new one as a replacement until Cingular XBM replaces mine. The replacement was the BlackJack II and I hated it. I called Cingular XBM today and they said that my phone is out of warranty and they would not replace it. Not only that, but even if they were willing to replace it (which in the end they were), they didn't have the Cingular 3125 in stock anymore. They told me I'm about the only person in the world who owns this phone. Ok, I told them, but now I'm SOL and I need a phone. She politely transferred me to Business Customer Care to see what they can do. I spoke to a very nice women who understood my predicament and basically offered me any phone they sell as a replacement. I told her I want MY PHONE - the Cingular 3125 and nothing else. I asked her if she would be willing to give me a service credit for me to buy a new phone. She asked me to do research on how much a new phone goes for. Interestingly enough, there's 1, that's right - ONE place in the country that sells this phone BNIB (everyone else sold it used) and he charges $269.99 - the original retail price of the phone 2 years ago! It just so happened to be a frum guy in Flatbush. Anyway, I told the lady I found one for $269 and she said "I'm sorry, I can only give you a credit for up to $250. I politely told her that that would be wonderful. 2 minutes later I'm researching $50 refurbished phones on eBay to see which one I should get, when I decided to call a friend who recommended that the LCD cable probably got disconnected from the phone, and the phone was not busted after all. I confirmed this by plugging my phone into my laptop and running a ver cool freeware program called MyMobiler which allowed me to look at the screen of my phone on my desktop, and guess what...the phone was in perfect working order. I headed out to Sears and picked up a tiny flathead which allowed me to unscrew the phillips and torx screws on my phone. I found a wire that was slightly disconnected, re-connected it, popped in the battery...and poof! I'm $250 richer and using my good old phone.

Thank god!

See picture below. The top right cable was loose. I'm a very happy man.
