Whats the deal with "some people" going lock happy on peoples topics. Maybe we want to hear other peoples opinions on certain topics. Who declares what gets locked and what does not.Just because "some people" may not like the topic they lock it. Let me lock your topic if I don't like it..<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>

As a moderator, I can tell you that alot of things get locked because it has either nothing to with the forum it's posted in, or it's been answered a million times before. Also, people sometime cross post the same things in multiple forums. Another issue is that a topic will be started, and before you know..it has gone WAY off track. So posts will either be deleted, locked, or moved. We don't do it to be pricks...we do it to keep things in order.

Topic moved...... If you're gonna go off because something to this matter...please keep it in the flame forum. Thanx......

That post was closed because I'd given all the information needed to cover the topic, and its been covered NUMEROUS times on every Hyundai forum in existance.

I'll move it to the flame forum. <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

I locked that topic cause it has been discussed before and answered. It no longer needed to be discussed due to the fact that it can not be done without ungodly amounts of money. So much money that no one would probably ever do it. You might as well just buy a Tib V6 cause you would come out alot cheaper in the long run.

As far as you do not like us locking the topics, <b>TOUGH SH!T!!!</b> Sorry to say it like that but it is our job. What else would you suggest not having mods at all????

We are here to make things run smoothly and sometimes we need to make a judgement call. Not everyone is going to like it but believe me we are not trying to be prics. I hope this answered your question. Thankyou and have a nice day<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

Rob,

Do you think it has been covered on EVERY Hyundai board in existence? that would be a lot of boards<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

I don't think it's racing that I'm addicted to, it must be the adrenaline rush.

sklo and autobot hit the nail on the head. we can't let all these posts that are going nowhere, run rampant it would be chaos. we only close posts when they need to be closed, not for our personal enjoyment so we can say "muahaha we closed that topic so he can't get his question answered for the 15th time" <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I beg to differ... one of my topics was locked by Autobot, when there was nothing "wrong" in the posting... not that I'm complaining what does it matter to me, I'll just start another topic... as I already did... but there are topics that are locked for little or no reason... I won't mention the topic for the reason that I personally don't give a sh*t, but don't be too quick to excuse yourselves when, even though it may be rare, it does happen. Sorry guys, had to say it.


I agree with the topic in question being locked because hell, I can't get away from the previous ones... but I understand that everyone wants to have pipe dreams, and they all have different maps plotted on how to get there, so it's a reasonable action, (to start a topic), but that reason is the reason why we have search capabilities, and moderators.



Just my two cents...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

are you racing you mom's car?

Sometimes it is not a matter of their being something wrong with the posts but sometimes it also gets locked due to the replies. Since you have decided not to let us know what topic it was I can not give you a reason that the topic was locked.
If I ever do lock a topic and you do not agree with it then ask me why I locked it. Maybe I will reconsider and unlock it. I am very easy to get in touch with, both my AIM and my e-mail addy are on my profiles. Just drop me a line.

Thanks Lantra<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
We try to please.

You can only make some of the people happy some of the time but you can never make all of the people happy all of the time<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>


You guys just need to be aware that all the mods and admins do this in their free time. We do not do this for money cause we do not get paid. We do this cause we want to help people with similar interests out.

We must be doing something right cause we just hit member 2000 so lets celebrate instead<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Im my opinion i think the mods here do an exelent job. and i think it was said before. sometimes the topic might not get locked because of ur question but because of someones answer. Keep up the good work mods.

Quit sucking the cocks of the people who run this site. I have had only one topice locked, but I notice some other peoples topics getting locked. Yes, some questions have been asked over and over but like you said theres alot of "new members" they have not seen the topics yet and maybe want to just trow out some questions. As far as dreams, I have not mentioned any unrealistic topics, I have every mod in question.In my opnion I used to read this site everyday, but lately it's become boring. Everyone talks about a 2003 tiburon thats not even out. the thing that pissed me off is my topic of car and driver went to a hyundai convention and were told it would have 171hp. You said thats wrong and locked it. How do you know! maybe it's wrong maybe it's true we'll all find out eventually. so why don't you locked some of these 2003 t ib questions since no one in the U.S. have the true correct answers! <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>

good point on the 2k3 topics, there is alot fo them, but that is b/c alot of people are curious and some of us know the answers. rob went to SEMA and talked to hyundai motor corp and got the numbers from them. that is how we know how much power it will be putting out. as for the new member statement, yes there is a lot of new members and yes we encourage them to use the search feature but we don't force it on them by closing topics, we will answer the question and if it gets too out of hand or dragged out it gets locked. and don't talk down on every other topic locked, if you won't give examples so we can fix the problem if there indeed is a problem. maybe it is all personal opinion on what you think is absolutely important and is in need of answers, but sometimes those topics can't be drug out the back door and shot 5 times, it's a waste of ammo, therefore it is just locked in the cage. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Feel free to ask me ANYTHING you'd like to know about the 2003 Tib. I will have 100% correct answers for most of your questions and if I don't I'll say so.

Believe me, I've got as much correct information on the 2003 Tib as I do on the 1997 Tib.

I was going to be nice but then you had to go get rude you little fvcking prick<img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>
Can't other people express their opinions without being called suck ups? So far you are the only one crying and acting like a little baby. Everyone else (and it has been few) that did not like the fact that I have locked a topic either e-mailed me or IMed me like an adult.

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>I have had only one topice locked,<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

So WTF are you whining about then? Are you just looking for something to b!tch about?

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>
but I notice some other peoples topics getting locked. <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

Let other people worry about it if their topics get locked. You are not their savior.

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>
Yes, some questions have been asked over and over but like you said theres alot of "new members" they have not seen the topics yet and maybe want to just trow out some questions. <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

And we always answer the question and then sometimes lock the Topic

Did it ever occur to you thats the reason we lock topics so the site does not become boring?

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>Everyone talks about a 2003 tiburon thats not even out.<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

This is because everyone wants to talk about it. You bitch cause we lock topics but then bitch about topics that don't get locked.

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>the thing that pissed me off is my topic of car and driver went to a hyundai convention and were told it would have 171hp.<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

Make up your mind do you or do you not want to talk about the 2003 Tib?


<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>You said thats wrong and locked it. <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

Because it had been discussed over and over again. We locked it to try to stop the site from getting boring and also to try to stop false information.

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>How do you know!<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

We know cause several members on this site have seen the new Tib along with the Owner of the site has talked to the people at Hyundai motor Corp himself.

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>maybe it's wrong maybe it's true we'll all find out eventually. so why don't you locked some of these 2003 t ib questions since no one in the U.S. have the true correct answers! <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

Well we have posted the correct answers numerous times but since you read these forums soooooooooooooooooo much I guess you already knew that.<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

If you would whipe the tears from your eyes you would see how much you contridict yourself in your last post. You are the only one b!tching so piss off.
