Thanks Worm for locking my thread on the Forzamotorsport.net forums, seems like most threads that out Turn 10 for releasing a piss-poor game get your lock instead of reprimanding the culprits that cause the problems. New threads will keep on being started if you keep on locking threads raising genuine concerns. Oh, and not all FM.net posters are 15 yr old school kids, some of us have our own 15 yr old school kids to contend with as well as the over zealous moderators on FM.net!

A lot of the people that posted in that thread haven't raced in an organised league have they?

That thread was well written and presented. And it wasn't purely flaming T10 & was just simply looking for answers. It's a shame it got locked.

The problem, as far as I could see, was with the post by PTG Coops. As soon as someone starts asking direct questions and wants direct answers then threads are going to get locked on there.

Turn 10 are a large company who make controlled information releases through their own media stream (Week in Review etc.). If you let those sort of posts through the forum's net once they will keep reoccurring and before you know it half the forums are full of exactly the same sort of posts for every aspect of the game's content.

If the thread had stayed on topic - people talking about how they had shared content within the community (and outside of it too) then I'm sure it would have stayed open but the conversation strayed and the padlock arrived.

So the OP suffers for the stupidity of other posters? Hence my statement saying "seems like most threads that out Turn 10 for releasing a piss-poor game get your lock instead of reprimanding the culprits that cause the problems".

You know, if Turn 10 actually bothered to speak to the community properly, and not just randomly came up with statements like "we hear what you are saying" (wtf does that actually mean then, you hear us and so what? You hear us and tough? You hear us and there's eff all we can do, sorry?), then a load of threads like mine won't even be required, but no. Turn 10 don't bother answering anyone. I know that they can't reply to everyone individually, that would be impossible, but they do have a weekly column in which they could announce their future plans to make changes. The fact that they haven't done any of that, and have never made large changes to the "structure" of a Forza Motorsport game before, makes me think that they are, or at least were, happy with what they released and it wasn't until league racers started questioning why so many community aspects had been removed that the proverbial "light-bulb moment" struck them.
I honestly don't think that they even realised that their wholesale cull of the community aspects would cause so much discontent let alone the disquiet about the repetitive career mode with only 14 tracks to choose from. It sort of shows just how far out of touch the developers of the game really are with the whole gamut of players that a Forza game encompasses. Not everyone is a "fly-by-night have a few races then do something else" type of gamer. There are those who put a huge amount of effort into actually racing, actually driving a car for hundreds off laps perfecting a tune and perfecting their racing lines. These people tend, in the most part, to belong to communities like TORA and these dedicated racers are the people who have been screwed over the most.
Turn 10 have not yet answered any aspect of this, they will bleat on about how they have changed the economy, and state that they are "listening to the community", but have never answered critics about the league racing community and how they are to supposed to continue like they did with Forza 4; not once.
This whole situation is only compounded by the comments of forzamotorsport.net moderators who seem to delight in coming up with ever more ways to piss off the posters with their insipid and sarcastic comments to people who express their dislike of or contempt for Turn 10 and their lack of support for the real racing community.

Over competitive gamers are the only thing that make me go on rants.

Yeah, you play a game, for having fun. I would like if gaming companies could just make a system where you actually go against people who are in it for the same reason you are, BUT NO! They feel the need to throw you with the people who troll leaderboards day in day out 24h a day, 365 days a year, for their whole life. Stop playing so you can make yourself at the top of leaderboards, it isn't funny, it just shows had sad a person you are to do nothing other than sitting on your a-hole doing nothing put pressing buttons on a controller, want to troll people? Do it with people who want to troll you! Not the people who just want to have a good time and enjoy the game, which was the reason it was intended for! If you cannot do that, then in my opinion, your life must suck so bad that you live of a gaming machine that does nothing other than display a picture and link to a plastic box somewhere around your house. Rant over.

I hate games where you play online and you don't have a chance because you get put in a lobby full of pros who have the best stuff i.e guns.

Opposite sides of the world. Same situation.

My parents tried to push me towards a career in finance, forced me get work experience at a bank, always mentioned the lucrative rewards such a career brings. Sat in an office wearing a suit is my idea of hell. What a waste of life that is (in my opinion). They weren't happy when I told them I'm going to join the Army, actually was the first time they said they were disappointed with me. Even then they tried to push me towards the Royal Air Force because it's 'safer'.

I know they like to think they know best, but I'm 18 now. It's a job I've wanted to do for a few years, I'm not going to settle for a mundane, pedestrian job to keep them happy or so they won't worry Rolling Eyes

Edit: Please no one '+1' me. I'm on 69 Rep Razz

Flappy Birds. Every so often one of this [Censored] mobile games come out, & nearly everyone jumps on the bandwagon, they screenshot their highscore & parade about as if it's a real achievement. I hate when the morons who play this refer to themselves as gamers. No, you are not a gamer.

I've participated in a 24 hour endurance race, driving for near 2 hours straight with my only break being a 30 second pitstop, I spent months painting, tuning & practising for the race which was live streamed. I am a gamer. They are not.

I really don't understand these games. Nobody had ever played it and then suddenly everyone is playing it. I guarantee you in a month or so Flappy Bird will be a thing of the past.

Greater Manchester Police Salford: "POLICE NOTICE

If you are being 'Harassed' on facebook please follow these instructions:

1. Close your facebook account"

So you can't be bothered to deal with the scumbags harassing, bullying and threatening people trying to enjoy social networking so you encourage the victims to change themselves instead?!

I'm not saying I agree with the Polices stance on Facebook bullying, but if you were being harassed on Facebook surely you could just block the people dishing out the abuse.

That's what I do, but this is more referring to the type of harassment where people will create multiple fake accounts, bombard you with messages to cause maximum stress.

I know I'm American, but I'm sure you guys can relate:

When it snows with minimal warning. We were told that today (Thursday) would be fine, a little cold, but most of the snow would start tonight. I wake up at 7:30 to the guys on the radio saying how hard getting to the studio was today. I sit up, look out the window, and everything's white.

Why can't weathermen be correct? Or at least somewhat accurate?

it's the same over hear
'severe thunderstorms on tuesday, I advise staying indoors if you can'
*cancels all plans for tuesday*
*tuesday arrives* Sunny all day

and vise versa
or, there's the extreme and this did happen, because in Australia, the rainy season AND the fire season are at the same time...
so itd be **large clouds are gathering over Goondawindy at the present (about 4hours drive west of me) and are expected to bring large downfalls again and possible flash flooding
wake up, grass is dry except Stradbroke Island (biggest island in my area) is half on fire...
