How come The scottish guy is still visting the general chat if he's been BUSTED/banned? Wouldn't your access to the homepage be cutailed if you're banned? In another forum I were in, you'll get a message saying

"Sorry, the moderators have banned you from visiting this site

Date the ban will be lifted: Never."

So what's the deal here? Could someone enlighten me on this? Thanks.

My guess is that he has the General Chat forum bookmarked, so he goes directly to this sub-forum even if he's banned, but this is everything. He can't move onwards, he's stuck to his bookmarked URL. You're right, that's the message he's most probably seeing. He can't access this sub-forum and see it like you or me do, but he still appears like he's actually watching the section, even if what he's actually seeing is the banned-alike message you posted above. It's hard to explain, it's like he's seen from the forum like he's actually watching the section, but in fact he sees nothing but the banned message. Hope you do understand though.

Sometimes when I'm watching a video on YouTube, it might get half way through the video and it will freeze and make a loud buzzing sound, almost like something out of the Transformers, and my computer is literally frozen for about 5 minutes until it starts playing again. I'm wondering if it has something to do with a plug-in or flash player or something else. Anyone else had this problem or knows how to stop it freezing on nearly every video I watch.

Just quoting a previous problem I posted in here a few weeks ago.

Also had this pop up message when a video froze, I have no idea what it means and it's a little faded as I could only get a printscreen on it as it was disappearing.

Don't know how to solve it.

(If nothing in here is helpful you might have more luck in this question topic in the tech/PC section.)

Here's Microsoft's support page for that issue. Seems like you probably have an outdated video card driver.

I don't know about the former but I once had the latter problem, and tried some of the methods suggested here and it seemed to work.

support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946

Method 3 worked for me. Apparently I had multiple tabs open, and it turned out to be the root cause of the problem.

@zoo3891 & rudy.:

Cheers guys, checked for updates and it said the video card driver was up to date but there were some updates that needed to be installed and the problem hasn't persisted. Hopefully it won't again. icon14.gif

You'll get a message saying:

GTAForums: You have been banned.

The following reason was given for the ban and the reason will be listed.

You won't be able to do anything, you can't even log out unless you clear your cookies then you can atleast lurk the forums as a guest. If someone views a banned members profile and he sees this screen, his/her profile would just say Viewing Board Index.

Why was Scottish guy banned anyway?

Edit: Another question, miro what if a banned member like erm lets say Slamman maybe.... bookmarks a famous topic like "The Funny Picture Topic" or "Grumpy old forumers" he'll be able to view the topic right? So if a banned member creates a new account does not post(so that he does not attract attention) and keeps bookmarking all the topics(I know it's not possible but just saying) and logs out and logs back again into his banned account, he can see a ton lot of threads right?

I believe you're misunderstanding the meaning of bookmarking here. Simply put, the topics he bookmarks will appear normally on the new account, but will appear with the error message on the banned one, so no, the banned account won't be able to watch the topic, only on the new clean account. What I'm meaning with bookmarking is the browser remembering a certain topic. Slamman is most probably watching this place using some account we do not know about, without posting.

As to why he was banned, I imaging trolling/flaming would be the reason on the notificatoon. It's a shame really as I sent him a PM offering to bury the hatchet and bring our feud to an end about 20 seconds before he got nuked.

He probably thinks it was some sort of piss take now and that you knew of his impending fate. Ironically, he probably hates you more now than ever.

Star Wars hands down. The prequels are not that good though. But the original trio was awesome.

Do you actually believe that or do you think that's just what people will want to hear? I'm not digging you out, the reason i bring it up is because most younger people like the new ones and not the old ones, and most older more hardcore fans love the originals and hate the new ones.

Not saying this is a dead set rule, but this is usually how it works out.

You've probably seen it, but if you haven't you should definitely see Blade Runner. It's about a bounty hunter who has to track down androids that impersonate humans.

Total Recall, made by the same director who directed Robocop, is also pretty good. It's about some guy who goes to memory implanters to have a memory of being a secret agent on mars, but during the process something goes wrong and he thinks he's actually a secret agent. Or maybe he was a secret agent the whole time, and the false memory reminded him of his past of being a secret agent, etc. It's based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (just like Blade Runner is), so it's very thought-provoking. E: Just remembered that there are two Total Recalls now. I haven't seen the remake, but it looked pretty cool, lots of action and futuristic stuff, but also lots of dubstep.

If you want something a little more exciting there's videodrome, which is kind of like a horror/science-fiction film with lots of body horror and gorn. It was directed/written by David Cronenberg who's famous for a lot of movies like that.

I believe you're taking about this topic it does seem Girish is getting somewhat fed up with milestone topics, probably because they tend to dish out unnecessary spam as a few has lately. Girish said in that particular one that it is pointless so i presume that's the reason

Nah. The story of the original trio is much better IMO, the prequels weren't that good.

I agree, Yeah I am a hardcore fan, but i've shown Star Wars to many friends and everyone prefers the new ones just for the action scenes, which are f*cking awesome! But the old ones have a much better script and storyline and aren't as cheesy.
I wish the prequels could have had all the great action, with a better storyline.

@Lzw3. I'm going to say yes, but it kinda depends on what specific low contrasting your talking about, obviously at a certain point your going to not be able to see, and it depends on different people and their eye-sight.

I don't think it really matters at all though.

Name changes aren't possible just yet, because the Admin CP is broken. It will be possible again with the next forum update, known as GTANet V1.5, according to what some staff members stated and it seems that it will arrive before the release of GTAV, if everything's fine. However, if you want to change your name now, you will have to sent a private message to a global mod to ask for a ban for your current account and tell the username of your new account. It depends on how patient you are.
