Agreed. I still think the forum needs a hook to get more people over here. Some official reviews of AV products would be good. Something similar to what AVForum does over in the UK would be a good format. A nice writeup, with a shorter but still informative video.

How about you start a thread where you post reviews of the many projectors that you test. I'm thinking " Dylan's Corner " has a nice ring to it ! Use all the self censored swear words you want !  ;D

If I were to do something like this it would have to be professional.  Reviews should be about objective truths, not based on the reviewer's subjective take on how it performs. I mean, yes, there would be a little write up on that too,  but not everyone is going to want to read a tirade on how I personally don't like something because it may not bother that person as much as it does me. So my criticisms would be briefly talked about and if possible a photo or some other evidence of the issue would be presented, but I would probably leave it at that and let the reader make their own mind up about it. Or they could ask me in a PM or on the forum in another thread.

I wasnt banned today but I got two stupid childish warnings - one was because I disagreed with an EX MOD and they warned me for 'ignoring staff rules' - you cant even dispute it. Anyway - ive been there 16yrs and get treated like crap so i hit google and found you guys (although I thought you were one and the same).

Mr. Tibbs, is that you?  Kidding, because I have no idea who you are.  What was your screen name over at the other site?

I'd be very willing to be a reviewer if allowed

Actually it was that I said "Fix the f*cking lens" in that exact way. If you look at my last post you'll see it was edited by a moderator and removed the bad language. I assume he's the one who banned me for life. Out of all the arguments I've gotten into there, ironically it's my potty mouth that gets me permanently banned and not  one of the arguments. Seems like a harsh punishment for an already censored swear word.

They probably just used that as an excuse.  I'm really not sure what's going on over there...

Who knows? I may have pissed off a forum sponsor who wants to sell a lot of Sony 4Ks this year. To be fair though I never started any of the conversations revolving around the known issues. I simply answered questions and corrected falsehoods about the problems being presented. Either way, none of these issues look good especially when a lot of dealers are hoping to sell a lot of projectors this fall. This is just my guess. I've said many worse things on the forum before and the punishment has never been this bad. Usually just a warning or a thread being locked. Apparently self censoring the F-word is crossing the line?

I just got banned for life too. Seegs108 at AVSForum is no more. Agreed with your sentiment. Apparently by complaining Sony uses software to fix the hardware issues is too much for the mods to handle:



That sucks. Would love to get more of the old group over here and then it would help draw more people.

Arguments get heated sometimes. Infractions are often given when things get personal and don't remain on topic. Though this time there was no argument. I'm not sure how and why a lifetime ban was necessary from my post? Without being able to log into my account I don't even have the option to PM a moderator to ask about all of this and why a lifetime ban was an appropriate response. I mean, wouldn't something like a 30 day ban be more appropriate? No one person was harmed or attacked with my last post.

As long as they have enough active accounts, they can ban whoever they want without hurting their business.
