    First off, what's with all the locked threads? Especially the ones that as far as I can see have been locked for no reason. I'm a n00b and want to read and reply to old threads. :(

    Do the New Topics in here have to be specifically about Scotland and if they're not is there a decent chance of people replying to them?

    Is there some way the Scotland forums can be excempt from the No-Swearing/Flaming rule!? It's not as funny as it should be as that's all part of our sense of humour. The only rules that should really stand are the no-bigotry/racism/porn/homophobia ones. PLEASE!!

    Anyway, AWRIGHT! Robb, here, from Maryhill. Here's a wee Star Wars questionnare.

    that. dear Idle, is because us Scots do not spend the fudging weekend sitting in darkened rooms playing with our PCs....

    however, during 'working' hours, you may find it busier........ though whether enthusiasm can me ignited for yet another questionnaire, I do not know.

    as for swearing, that is a battle we have now been fighting for four or five years, and sometimes the mods are tolerant people, and sometimes they are american christian fundamentalists, and we just have to take our fudging chances ...

    It was either surf the net or watch Rainjurz win the shoite-cup.

    I stand by my choices. :)

    the only football competition that currently matters is between Partick Thistle and the oblivion of the second division :(

    As mentioned above, after a set period of time threads automatically lock. If you want any thread re-opened just PM Yoshee (your official local mod - link in the header), or me (your non-official mod from other parts).

    Regards swearing :- it's totally forbidden in these parts. The entire site is owned by two guys and they set the policy regards these sorts of things. We respect their decisions because they provide this place free of charge.

    That being said, I typically ignore anything subtle I see around these parts, and leave the moderation to Yoshee.

    yes, listen to malkie you should...... subtlety, you must learn subtlety !

    and bear in mind, too, that traditional scottish greetings like 'bawbag', 'plamff', 'choob', 'walloper', ''fud', 'keech' and indeed 'faanneeeeeee' are all much nicer words to use anyway :)

    'bawbag' is one of my personal favourites.

    Until recently you could use the word ****** as the American management didn't know what it meant. Sadly that word has crossed the pond as is now banned.

    (oh, the word is rhyming slang for "Sherman Tank")

    Indeed, if there is a thread that you want unlocked, just ask. As long as it wasn't locked for a specific reason. But most of the ones you can see locked are a result of automatic pruning, which happens due to lack of posting activity.

    lack of posting ?!?

    shurely you can't be referring to us ?

    why, only last week, I counted three whole new posts, only one of which was a tourist snap of some Dundee landmark or other.

    This place is a veritable hotbed of activity !

    Only thing that could possibly make it any busier would be if we posted that photo of Yoshee's girlfriend again...........
