[QUOTE=WeekendWarrior;41298801]Which is why they should lurk for more than 10 minutes on the forum. Actually go to different subforums and such. It's not a difficult concept.[/QUOTE] The thing is, they trusted these experienced older members for advice. Either way these guys wouldn't be getting refunds if they was getting tricked by older members. It's the source of the problem. Just stop fucking with the new guys, it's not a difficult concept.
If you're trusting a random person on the internet then I'd be concerned.
[QUOTE=wickedplayer494;41298842]It's a test of gullibility. The greedy fall for it. The non-greedy don't. [editline]3rd July 2013[/editline] And again, idiot cull. It cleans the problem up before they even become a problem.[/QUOTE] It's not a test, it's just older members fucking around with newbies for laughs, stop pretending it is anything other then trolling.
I think this is stupid. I want the mods to be getting free money for their efforts.
[QUOTE=Iago;41298902]It's not a test, it's just older members fucking around with newbies for laughs, stop pretending it is anything other then trolling.[/QUOTE] The people getting tricked are the ones that would be likely to cause problems in the future for mods anyways. Less energy is spent on a single perma instead of several shitpost bans leading up to an eventual perma.
why would you spend $10 on a forum you're probably only going to make roughly 10 posts on
Maybe they should bring back the ol' Respected group.

[QUOTE=Rangergxi;41298956]The mods get money[/QUOTE] And Garry too

[QUOTE=Iago;41298971]I doubt you was the perfect facepunch user when you first join.[/QUOTE] At least I wasn't an idiot and did some stupid thing that would've resulted in a perma.
[QUOTE=FlubberNugget;41298948]why would you spend $10 on a forum you're probably only going to make roughly 10 posts on[/QUOTE] It's their money bro, no need to worry what they spend it on.
[QUOTE=Iago;41298971]I doubt you was the perfect facepunch user when you first join.[/QUOTE] The difference is that he had common sense.
[QUOTE=Iago;41298999]It's their money bro, no need to worry what they spend it on.[/QUOTE] its still stupid either way i also doubt it's their money
[QUOTE=wickedplayer494;41298982]At least I wasn't an idiot and did some stupid thing that would've resulted in a perma.[/QUOTE] No need for name calling, I don't see how my ban history BEFORE Garry's birthday has to do with this argument. [editline]3rd July 2013[/editline] [QUOTE=WeekendWarrior;41299005]The difference is that he had common sense.[/QUOTE] Just give them time, people learn from their mistakes and become better posters.
[QUOTE=Iago;41299038]No need for name calling, I don't see how my ban history BEFORE Garry's birthday has to do with this argument.[/QUOTE] By "idiot", I was referring to those that fell for posting that cat and got perma'd.
[QUOTE=wickedplayer494;41299085]By "idiot", I was referring to those that fell for posting that cat and got perma'd.[/QUOTE] Oh, sorry for the accusation sir.
Apparently Garry made a post about the whole thing somewhere, not sure where though.
[QUOTE=Tsyolin;41299153]Apparently Garry made a post about the whole thing somewhere, not sure where though.[/QUOTE] In the GMF? that would be funny and also not
[QUOTE=The_J_Hat;41296667]Maybe Garry went back to the good old "stay on for two years and have 2000+ posts" deal.[/QUOTE] I'd like this Maybe this time I wouldn't get fucked in the ass out of gold literally one month and I could've gotten gold thanks garry

[QUOTE=mattmanlex;41299158]In the GMF? that would be funny and also not[/QUOTE] Found it under his account, actually you guys are all correct. There were too many people buying gold and expecting a rust key so he temp removed the feature.
[QUOTE=garry;41296057]I stopped people buying gold membership - because too many were buying and expecting keys - and I don't want to loose them down. I'll try to give as many keys as possible out here though - so the people that bought gold get fed.[/QUOTE] [highlight](User was banned for this post ("Rule 3" - postal))[/highlight]
Ugh, what about the members that don't give a fuck about the Rust thing and actually do want to buy gold for themselves? Not saying that this is ridiculous, but a group of fucktards shouldn't ruin it for the majority.
I'm still curious about the GMF, what is it like? Is it like GD except golds only?

I don't spend much time in there anyways to be honest.
