Just out of curiosity, do the military medics carry these white pathes with the red cross in combat/war time? they look like if they could give possition away the position of the soldier...

Being seen was the idea.  Corpsmen were supposed to be 'exempt' from enemy fire.

Would that be effective, though? If I were a commander, I would try to shoot all the specialists first (medics included) before engaging the riflemen and stuff
Afaik, the Geneva Convention forbids to attack any medical unit, as well as impersonate medical personnel. However, in combat, I doubt the enemy would worry about differentiating between a regular soldier and another one with a medical patch in the arm...

I remember reading that the Geneva Convention forbids that, along with impersonating enemy soldiers and the like. While it looks good in theory, it doesn't work good in practice. I mean, have we ever had a "fair" war since the Geneva Convention took affect?

Put it this way, the Geneva convention can do it's best, but you'd have to be a damn fool or a patriot (Not a hell of a difference in some cases) to run around in front of an enemy shooting at you hoping they'll either:
A) See your white patch.
B) See the white patch and choose to leave you alone.

Has that even happened historically? As in the enemy leaving medics and the like be during battles? I might be wrong though, seeing as my knowledge of modern battles is rather limited.

It was a nice 'Idea' but didn't get anywhere. Snipers used the wounded to attract others. And, it wasn't unheard of to use ambulances to rearm, transport, and equip troops in the field.

Is it only women that find babies cute? Seriously, girls obsess over how cute babies are all the time, but when I look at a baby, to me they all look like little red weird things, I mean some of them are a little cute, but not so much so that you squeal "omg that is so cute" when really it looks like every other baby out there.

Little kids can be cute, but bald alien looking newborns are not, is it just a girl thing to think every baby is cute?

I honestly think most babies are cute. But I'm a weird person. It depends on the person I assume because I know some girls who absolutely hate babies.

 

Is it normal to still feel high after smoking a couple days later? I've been smoking lately because of some personal problems, and I noticed that some days after, I still feel high/everything is dreamlike or surreal.

I'm sick of seeing ugly babies. I find most babies to be ugly, I find very few of them cute. Loads of girls that were in my year at school seem to be popping them out like they're upside down pez's at the minute. Ugly f*cking babies are all over my FB feed, with stupid captions that go with them. 

 

I was out the other night, and there were 4 girls who I knew from school that I saw and they were out together. It's like they're organising into lame motherhood clubs or something. They were all talking about their stupid ugly babies, and I had to listen to each and every one of them bang on about Archie or Ella, and how they're the most perfect thing in the world. One of them had recently been ditched by their baby's father, I can't blame him, and she kept going on about how she hates men now.

 

Goddamn babies. I hate them. Especially the ugly ones, which is like 95% of them.

Any reason why my Roster and my Application table are not centered, even though I always set it to do so each time I edit the post?

I know it's a noob question since the forum update, but why did the staff removed the ability to view banned members? I'm looking for their posts that made them banned here in the forums.

You can still see their posts, just not their profiles. Chances are though that if it was a post bad enough to get them banned in the first place it will have been deleted when they were banned anyway.

Quite concrete explanation but sometimes their last post history could also be the drive towards their banning, even if the topic or their post was deleted, for example tracking the post history of Slamman; I can definitely see in his current post history that's he's becoming a troll and there you can see the full development to his banning in the forums. Anyway thanks for the tips.

It is possible to view posts IF you know banned user ID.

http://gtaforums.com/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&search_app=forums&mid=<User ID here>&sid=e06b745e6a6075e6529498f3b8efdb23&search_app_filters[forums][searchInKey]=&userMode=content

Replace "<User ID here>" with the users ID.

You can find it on their user profile link.
Mine one is "755035"
Yours is "680694"

Here is a working example (Shayan Shaffey's posts, he was banned before the forum change)
http://gtaforums.com...rch_app_filters[forums][searchInKey]=&userMode=content

 

The last part won't get linked, but it still works

 

 

 

 

 

Now I have a question. What is GTA-King's ID?

That's part of why. People tend to make complaints and use links to the "last" posts. Except, the real "last" post is usually in the bin, where it's only seen by moderators anyways.

You don't have to use their ID. You can just enter their username into the search function and get the exact same result, I just tried.

Now I have a question. What is GTA-King's ID?

If you want to use that method anyway, it's 165609 ;) I just feel it's a bit more fiddly is all.

How does a PS3 Bluray disc-based game perform if installed on a SSD?

 

I know games downloaded through the PS store and stored on a SSD load up like lightning. But, how about those installed from a Bluray disk and installed on a SSD?

Verbal Commendations that you received on the old boards carried over to the new forums. They are listed as warnings just like verbal warnings, temp-bans, etc., but you can still distinguish the differences. If you are reading your warn log, and look at the verbal commendation(s) you received prior the forum update, it still says "The following reason was given for this commendation" in the message.

No changes have been done to logs so far, as you know. You have to assume that the warning system on the old forum was heavily modified. On stock IPB 1.3, there are only warnings and bans listed in the log, no commendations whatsoever. The same goes for the current version of the board. As for medals, they disappeared completely, not even the log entries are on the new boards. I have no idea if this is subject to change.
