    I can't speak for all mod's but as far as I am concerned you kids can go off do whatever you like - just don't bring your playground tantrums back to the classroom.;)

    I like banter but I can't do Facebook. However, I feel this entire heated thread was worth it just so I could get to see you write the word modmins :)

    That is a great idea but .................. some would misuse it and it could become abusive by people saying "I'm only joking".

    If it's not too late please reconsider if not for your sake but for the sake of your friend who you ask questions for.;);)

    As stated in an earlier post on this thread I have restarted the " What are you doing now and humourus banter " thread in the general chatter section. I felt this forum needed something like this.
    This thread is open to all and could do with a few new contributors.
    Yep the moderators watch the thread as they do all threads on this forum. So far they have not been too heavy handed.

    @mountaintom you could leave, but maybe get your friend to join up in your place? We liked him ;)

    So how about a thread entitled 'T1 life'? - similar to the T2 life one? I just feel that T1s would benefit from a chat thread of their own, maybe some newbies would stay around the forum after they have gotten themselves on track if there was something specifically for them to chat on and build relationships with other T1s. Some of you T1 guys are great, but I feel we do need more regular T1 posters.

    DCUKMod is our ultimate reference point. If you are still not happy with what we do the next step is writing to the site administrators.
