you think we should get rid of outdated posts?
specific ones atleast like older versions of things and posts that just make no sense now(mostly stuff in the lounge about the election)
maybe just lock them
i dont know, just a suggestion
i agree im new to this site but unless you search nothing is really relevant. makes this site harder to browse thru
i disagree for the most part after anwsering so many questions the search button is not used for the most part and the same things get posted again and again, i do agree some incorrect posts should be deleted or atleast edited but its not the type of thing i really see a point in
like the stuck topic "you need a mod chip for backups" vs a topic that says "you need a modchip for a flawless run of most/all backups" then go into details about how the backup loader is a crap program, that will never work perfectly or even close to a modchip but thats more confusing to me than just saying you cant, because i dont think playing 2 hours of a back up can be considered "playing" a backup
sorry that was the best example i could think of for a out dated post, but in reality no one searchs, they just ask, and if they dont, there are PLENTY of newer topics with the anwser to make it matter
your a very blunt person arent you? lol
Me being blunt - i have read almost every forum topic on this site non stop since midnight last night... over 9 hours of reading.... (its the last day of my vacation what can i say...) and you are a very informative person but for as much as you are positive you are very negative. I see ppl give you thanks after insulting them. Its almost a joke in some topics.
Me being helpful - Most of the users on this site are in their teens. (I am not) and just like any other consoles site or any forum for anything related to mods. NO ONE USES THE SEARCH FEATURE. I do but there is no reason to rag on someone with a problem in finding information they need. You being a new mod are in a customer service position... but your like the cashier at walmart that just points to the back of the store when someone says where can i find this? saying its over there might get old but its your job and refering to the search everytime might not explain something in better detail. of course ppl are going to ask you the same thing over and over again. If you wanted to make things easier you would go through this site and compact the information that is correct into one post and sticky it and delete the ones that dont apply anymore. Instead of keeping two lengthy post that go on and on about something as simple as playing backups could cut the crap out for a lot of new ppl. List options not excuses. Example - List one Sticky for explaining how to do backups with a modchip. Another for current ways to do it without. Advantages and disadvantages of both. I could of saved 5 hours of reading everyones stupid crap comments for valuable info if this would have been done.
End of Rant.
Admiral has every right to blunt with the amount of stupidity on this site. As do I, people ask the same thing over and over again on this site. Leaving the older posts give something for people to look at instead of asking the same thing over and over again. I am 16 years of age, almost 17 and I see what Admiral means. You will not go around calling people rude because you do not agree with them. He has a point, and he has been around for awhile. I have been around longer then him, and I have seen more and more stupidity on this site. Please just consider what us Mods have to deal with, before you go off at the mouth.

-rolls eyes- i do so little
lets forget the HUGE faq i wrote with most of the really common questions, about firmware, games, homebrew, and chips where i mention how to fix games like animal crossing and need for speed, mention which discs are useful and how to make others better you know that 10,000 or so character post yeah...
lets forget that when 3.4 came out, atleast 18 people posted in the next 2 days about accidently updating and needing help to downgrade/get HBC
lets forget just about everyone says "i searched but..."
if you read everyone of my posts, i usually give the anwser or help till i get insulted, or i get tired of this crap
mod isnt about customer service, its about helping people, at no point of helping someone is being nice required, the number of people who are active, doesnt make being nice, 100% related to activity.
every time i tell someone to search its part of a thing to do this
i can tell you how to fix/do everything and you can be like brambles and have 40 thank yous given, or you can search and learn to get your own food, and not need help for everything
going back, there was a wad topic about someone who couldnt get it to work, in post 3 i gave him a reply nice and simple, he ignored it, upon 3 or so posts later he posts pictures with what was wrong, which it turned out my reply in post 3 was correct, if you cant read info in your own thread, i am free to say what i wish, because thats above all uncalled for
