of coarse i'm still here, i'm glad to see all of you still reading, and replying to my posts, now, the post the phenlapt(i cba to check spelling) is refering too, is still number 1 on the list, meaning? well it's not going to die, for some time, proving my point, that some posts are better to be bumped, and if they die, they die, and of coarse, i will always be here, to just enjoy my stay, as i'm sure, all of you will

Assumptions are not a good idea. You will be here as long as the admins want you to be.

If you have a static IP they could block all access for it.

now, what use would i have for a static ip?, where as, most, isp internet packages, come with a standard, dynamic ip, and you have to pay extra for a dynamic ip, or you have to buy another package, such as higher internet speeds, to get a static ip address

His name isn't Neo.........if you are going to talk to the admins show them the respect they deserve and use their full nick, which is NeoThermic.

As for making your own game....Oh how often we've heard that and oh how often it comes to nothing. Best of luck mind you, but we wont hold our collective breaths.

You don't need to keep repeating that you're making a game. We got the point the first time you said it.

There, I fixed it for you. If you look at the below (which is the same block of text, but without color), you will realize that it is much, much easier to read, and makes you sound a lot smarter than you really are:

That being said, I don't see how anything you have said makes any sense. The fact that a post is first on the list does not imply that it needs to be bumped. There are several reasons not to bump topics, many of which have been discussed already. However, everyone has missed out on one of the more important ones: often, people bump topics in order to ask a question. Either they get an answer, or they don't. However, most of those people are one post wonders -- they ask their question, then leave (either with an answer or not). If you bump a four year old post, the only person who cares about it (i.e. the person that asked the question) is long gone.

Also, I would suggest that you do not taunt the admins. No one here is going to miss you when you are banned. If you really don't care if you get banned, maybe you should do the polite thing, and leave right now, rather than aggravating people for no reason. But, hey, I don't think that is going to happen. Clearly, you suffer from some form of brain damage, and manners are not your forte.

I also didn't understand it. I put it down to his typing being so crap I couldn't decide if it was a typo or an acronym.

Seems likely, because that definitely applies to him.
