Fixing HC so that
Undesirable language is
Censored from the forum looks like it might finally
Kill the site.
I don't understand. How will censoring undesirable fuking language kill the site? We can still talk about fuking guitars and shite, right? Or has that been banned too?

They want kids on their forum. Even though most forums would love to see the back of them.

Instead of worrying about attracting newer and younger forumites, it might be good to start listening to the feedback of those who made this place a successful forum in the first place. The number one mistake any business can make is to completely disregard customer feedback and make changes in a management bubble. (Sadly, that is apparently what has been going on here now for quite some time.) If anyone in management really wants to know what would make these boards more appealing, it really isn't difficult to find out. Just tack up some polls or even a few open-ended question posts and then look for general trends in the responses.

I used to be able to say ****, now the cunts won't let me.
SHITE, ARSE and BOLLOCKS still seems to be OK though.
Seriously though, back in 2006/2007 I wasted so many many many hours at work posting on HC, whether that was serious discussions about guitars and modding in HCEG, or random bollocks over in Guitar Jam. Unfortunately, the people who made the place so interesting just aren't here any more.
I don't know what will bring them back, but I really don't think more corporate advertising and telling (mostly) adults not to **** swear is going to **** bastard help. The **** swearing filter isn't even pissing consistent! SHITE NOB FANNYFLAPS PISSARSEFUCKCUNTDICKDICKDICKWILLYPOOPOO.
PS: the new smilies are shite as well. :cry:

People should boycott having to swear that they're 18 just to get into the OT forums, but internet/forum addiction being what it is, I doubt that will happen. I am not going to do so. Bugger that.

Who or what is a Dendy? I can't believe someone with that name would have the power to run this site into the ground.Was he picked on as a child, bullied perhaps? Is this his "revenge" in a twisted sort of way?
Whatever the case this site has sucked since the changeover and while I do miss the old site I rarely have a reason to even lurk here anymore.
On a positive note, since the deals thread and spam threads are deader than I ever remember them, this site has cured me from GAS probably permanently which is bad news for GC/MF/M123 etc.

Dave, I appreciate the sentiment of this thread. However, I'm fairly certain the current HCEG Administration do not care about the old guard. I think they'd prefer to wipe the slate completely clean and start fresh. For the most part, I've obliged them and gone away.
Anybody reading this, if you remember me, feel free to PM me here. You can leave outside contact if you want. Or just leave a note. I'll check back here every few months to collect messages and we can reconnect.
This place is like an old friend who has died. I've mourned the loss and now I accept it.
I have a lot of fond memories of HCEG past. Perhaps, my biggest contribution was the 'CSM Raffle.' RIP HCEG.
