Donkey Kong Jr on the Nintendo Game & Watch

This is something I have to share with you all. This was the first ever handheld I owned, I think circa 1984 maybe? I played it so much it fell to pieces, literally. That was a sad, sad day when it was thrown away. I hope you enjoy this fabulous piece of nostalgia as much as me ❤

Forum police are out in force

Seriously, they’re still around? Jumped up Simmers dictating what we can and can’t post? I know that the moderators and gurus seem to disappear to la-la land over weekends but honestly, are you self appointed forum police traffic wardens in real life?

After my little rant about SimGuruPopTwat’s typo yesterday, I decided to be a bit mischievous and start a thread over on the forum:

Obviously heavily dripping in sarcasm but pointing out that someone working for EA really should know better and at least proofread what they have written. Most sane people seem to have understood my tongue in cheek approach to admonishing a guru but no, apparently some have no sense of humour or have their heads so far up EA’s arse they are incapable of seeing both sides of the coin.

All I could think of to respond was this:

So for those of you who seem to be having a problem with understanding my thread, let me simplify it for you:

  • I couldn’t give a toss whether a guru is able to string a sentence together or not.
  • did you not notice the sly dig at EA’s apparent direction for The Sims – “Because the game is really being pushed towards children and teenagers now”
  • a blatant dig at how so many threads are moved to Ideas & Feedback for no apparent reason, yet others aren’t when they damn well should be – “Sorry, should have posted this in Ideas & Feedback instead of General Discussion. I’m fully expecting it to be moved there at the earliest opportunity”
  • another blatant dig at how inept the moderators and gurus are on the forums, especially at weekends – “thank the moderators for being so diligent in taking care of erroneous threads”

I mean, how much clearer do I have to make it?
