Loads of words I'm surprised are not blocked when I type them, a UK forum mod would be harsh I reckon, maybe it's better we post in the mostly US modded forums?


Maybe a Canadian?

They are kind of like Americans but with less of the Woohoo attitude and just as unaware of our unique insults?

Lol, reminded me of being in a bar in Cambodia with an Australian, New Zealander, German, Austrian, Canadian and US citizen....we all know who felt subservient to the other, even without me stating it. lol


That sounded like a Bernard Manning joke for a moment.

Was a shame there was no punchline...

Didn't need one.
ATS doesn't give a toss about Europe, the lack of staff involvement in this thread sums it up...oh, nobody noticed the topic?!
Lol, no, they ignored it lol

Nope, was looking to see what it would take for them to turn up.

They won't turn up, the Euro forum ain't happening, staff just haven't got the balls to come out and admit it lol.

*edit*
Pets forum FFS lol, it really was a finger to those who wanted a Euro forum.
Such is life though, first world problems lol

I've grown to like the idea of a Euro forum and will mention it to the bosses.

The language isn't an issue because anyone can check anything out in the urban dictionary. T&Cs and moderation aren't a problem either because when someone is being a tool, it's usually obvious. The toughest thing about off-topics is identifying ebb and flow conversation from the mindless/deliberate off-topic that causes thread drift.

This ^^^ is the kind of comment that puts anyone off listening to requests, right? On one hand, you're asking for a UK forum and on the other you insult the site and the staff. Have you ever got anything in life by insulting someone and then asking for something off them? Pet's forum had zero, zilch and less than FA to do with a Euro forum. It came about because of lots of PMs to the bosses and widespread support - exactly what the Euro forum hasn't had.

Luckily, I like the idea regardless of whether someone's being a dick about it or not.

...and attitude like that will surely help you get your wishes fulfilled, won't it?

The European Forum is a great idea, and I'll second Kandinsky's push.

Cheers!

Lol, just saying it as I see it, people have been asking for years and the same tired old conversation happens, ending with it being ignored.
I guess when it gets ignored this time you can blame me and my attitude.

And this is why I think the forum would be fun.

Where else would a supermod call a member a dick?

And where else would the member laugh?

I also suggest making the new forum a 'no stars' place like this one, it forces comments and conversation.
Can you imagine how many stars Kandinsky would have got for the dick line?! The screen would be awash with them by now!

But with no stars how would the little gangs be able bully members that do not agree with their views?

It would also eliminate us from the All star rankings.

Maybe they could introduce a new system, replace the flags for cups of tea and the stars for biscuits?

I would love to read a post and then "well said mate, have a custard cream for that..."

I'll be the first to admit I'm a complete dick at times, you were just saying it as you see it, and quite accurately I must add!

No good fella, if the new forum is to be 'Euro' something then it would have to be tea and croissants or such like replacing stars n flags, to reflect the diversity of course.

What a shame you're wrong, isn't it?

Do you honestly think this hasn't been discussed before? Seriously?

But OK, if it doesn't happen, we'll just blame your attitude if that'll make you happy. 'cause we're all about happiness.

I hope I am wrong to be honest.

Perhaps you misread my post, I stated "people have been asking for years and the same tired old conversation happens, ending with it being ignored" so yes, I know it has been discussed many times, and then ignored.


But OK, if it doesn't happen, we'll just blame your attitude if that'll make you happy. 'cause we're all about happiness.

Blame whatever you like, I was teasing more than anything, I'm well chilled with my cat on my lap, and if the 'Euro' forum ever happens I shall be pleasantly surprised.
I won't hold my breath though lol
