  2. Good seeing this back on the right side. Looked odd down at the bottom of the page.

      GC: Agreed. Now all they have to do is put back the NYCT Forums home portal card above in proper place.

      I mean it was inconvenient to scroll all the way to the bottom, but if this area was going to be left blank, then the other forums could've been stretched out to fill this space. That dead space just looked odd. Anyways great news seeing this section back where it belongs.

      @Cait: So many of us had this problem. I did, too.

  3. Will probably head to the rockaways to get my bus shuttle and h train rides before full a service resumes. Likely on a tuesday or monday. If anyone's interested send me a pm. Busy right now, so details to come like this friday.

      Get the Orion V CNGs, they're out during rush hour.

  4. Yes I am back. To everyone that was wondering: I guess it was some glitch with fios that prevented me from being able to just get onto this site. So basically with help from realizm and brett, I've finally gotten back and want to thank everyone for their help and concern.

  5. Harry or Brett, can either of you unlock my download failed thread? It seems like the problem was not resolved after the iPad iOS update.

      Alright, although we can't provide much iOS help here as it is. Did you try the Apple forums??

      Understood Brett, just saying the iPad problem still persists despite the update, mainly applies to YouTube linked posts. Harry, thanks!

  6. If certain topic starters have topics that gets locked up within the day, is there a reason why they are still allowed to post? Why not just ban them before they waste most people's time with a thread that will end up locked anyway?

      If you think that what you see is annoying, the number of threads that depot recreates that don't get approved are uncountable.

      peacemaker: attention and the need to state the obvious/pile on to the fire are the main reasons. brett: yeah all the posts i see dates back to only november.

      Gee, I wonder who the new could be..... jk

      Truly I meant no harm, I just tend to be direct.

      No worries, sometimes I can't tell if people are reading too much to what I said or whatever. I just wanted to clarify just to be sure I wasn't being too serious about this matter.

    4. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      Tim92 and subwayfan12 proved my point, both of them haven't posted anything useful.

  8. Threxx, dunno why you locked your status, but to add on to what you said about the random thoughts stuff, it seems a few people have been posting separate threads on the main forum instead of the random thoughts threads. To me it's no better than spam to see a question that could've been posted in the random thoughts thread instead.

      @GC and B35

       

      I think he was upset about something but didn't want to bring it out in the status updates because of Harry's rules. But I'm sure everything is fine now.

      ^^Cracked the case...

       

      Also, PM's were attempted to be sent, but failed...

      b35, 2nd part was not directed at you, sorry for the confusion. I agree about people being active and some new ppl skirting a huge thread.

      rollover: ok.

      threxx: alright then. I'll close this at the end of the day since i said what i wanted and got my answers.

  9. Anyone having problems with the latest version of Itunes? I downloaded the update, but now I can't open up the program. 'can't read because it is a newer version' wtf? Also the layout when I first saw it was confusing as hell. So till then, do not update itunes.

      Damn... I was thinking of updating too... They'll release a new update soon hopefully...

    3. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      I hope so. It's a pita to dust off the old laptop to use just for itunes. I mean the old one is an insprion 8600 from 2004 and though it still works, it's slow as hell.

       

    4. Grand Concourse

      Update, after a few days [lol, apple stock hitting a current low at $500~ per share], Itunes is working again and I'm getting a handle on the new format.

  10. It's not my problem I call out 'ideas' as unworkable. I call it as I see it. Has nothing to do with the person, but sometimes the ideas become so far out it's gotta be shot down asap.

    1. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      You made it a big deal when you said 'you need to read more carefully'. I understood what you wrote. Perhaps it is you that needs to calm down anytime people don't agree with your ideas. If you made the claims, you should be prepared to handle the criticism. Why do you think other people don't like you? You make outrageous statements and when people call you out on it, you think it's an attack on you. That's my point. I don't care about attacking you as a person. I...

      @QJ: What is this.... I don't even....

    3. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      Ok,that settled, this is over. (to finish that other post: I only disagree with the ideas. I don't dis people because I dunno them, they dunno me. I do not agree with personal attacks.)

  11. NovaCSW8030, I like that avatar. Assassins creed 3 commercials have been pretty sweet, still not sure if i'm gonna commit to buying the game though.

      Nah, I don't have the time to invest like 60 hrs in a game. I've got my eyes set on GTA 5 next spring.

  12. So an M101 SBS is 'out of the question', but a 'boat bus' to replace the SI Ferry is an option? http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/topic/38107-what-lines-will-benefit-from-well-these/ :smh:

      LOL... Oh the humanity!!

  13. Lol, I'm glad that improve the lex lines thread is closed. It is also funny how the same person that calls another idea delusional is the same person with endless 'ideas'. Nuff said

  14. lol, I'd love to see the day xxlilgijoexx and chargerdodge meets in person...

      Yes... I know how passionate people get in this hobby... so not too far, sadly...

    3. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      I support being passionate for any hobby but when people fight each other over it, it's time they found something else to do.

      well seems like he's been given a time out for a week, so there's some relief for now.

  15. Guys: you don't need to post in every single thread if all you are doing is restating what someone else says, state the obvious, or post 1 line statements. You only make your posts pointless and nothing more than post inflation. Post something more than just 1 liners or what was already stated. It's a privilige to post, don't abuse it. end of rant.

      Well, at least you are learning about certain folks. This gives you a reason to back off from them. Besides, the spamming and all that, doesn't really apply to this forum. Every forum out there, you will get some sort of thing. This isn't much new to me anyways.

      cuz it's true. I call it as I see it. :)

  16. Oh lord.. what is with people and all the 'where should the R62As go to" crap? I've never seen some people with a hard on over where the cars go like they have to get the last and only word in as if they think they speak the truth. The truth is, your life must be that boring if that is the only thing you must really care about....smh, that's all you can do at this point. end of rant

      Indeed. It's like a never ending loop of bad grammar and false info.

      Yeah, it's just waiting for Lance to clean up that thread and a matter of time till the cycle repeats again...

    4. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      Yeah...

       

      It's entertaining but it does get tiring very quickly.

  17. It's pouring outside. Damn and it was sunny just an hour ago...

  18. "what a surprise" another vtrain topic that gets the lock... proves my point.

    1. Threxx

      Threxx

      He just asks questions that he should KNOW we don't have any good answers for...

  19. just saw the new spiderman movie. It was pretty good. The origin story was actually better than the first movie and the HS segments were pretty good. The movie overall was nicely done, though I still like spiderman 2 the most of the 4 films.

    1. Threxx

      Threxx

      No spoilers, I'm going to see it in a couple hours...

       

    2. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      i will say that the subway scene was just so funny. and overall the fights with other ppl were just great. so for the down to earth stuff, this movie was great

  20. Rather than to just lock threads by vtrain, why not just lock his account? it's pretty much the same thing at this point. We all know he posts useless (boarder line harassing) stuff.

      It doesn't matter how many times he's done it. As long as he's within the rules of this board and isn't posting any inflammatory spam, he can post whatever he wants. The last topic he posted was within the rules.

    3. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      @IRT, lol! @RTS, but he always ignores the existing threads to keep asking: 'when does (whatever) open' or 'when does (that) return'? It's annoying and just spam at this point. Enough already!

    4. Threxx

      Threxx

      You can't just lock accounts, or so I thought, until a certain someone locked his OWN account...

  21. :sigh: can someone tell vtrain to get off his ass and go look at the new entrance of Bleecker St instead of harassing us to 'post pics' for him..

      and such a broken record. i fear they'll need a hazmat unit when the connection is open. good god, never seen anyone so obsessed with a damn station...

    3. IRT Bronx Express

      IRT Bronx Express

      Obsessed & impatient. He really needs to get a life and not worry about the R160 sign readings and the Bleecker St station.

  22. Speaking of annoying posters, why is it vtrain reposting old issues or demanding pics of stuff? And please someone tell wally to knock it off already about the damn C via Culver express.

    1. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      it's been commented to death in the past and such threads usually ends up turning into 'send the C to Lefferts'. that's why it should be locked.

       

    2. IRT Bronx Express

      IRT Bronx Express

      Someone please lock that topic! Next thing you'll hear is a reroute of one of the 6 Av lines via Lefferts Blvd.

      Grand Concourse

      If anyone were to hit report, it'd be for every post x 20 for everyone against him.

      Not sure how happy the mods would be.

      IRT Bronx Express

      I don't bother QJtransit______ anymore, I just let him be.

  24. Agreed. I dunno who he gets his info from, but nothing is credible. Your word will always be better than some self proclaimed know it all.

  25. I'm so glad you joined in on the R188 thread. I dunno where that guy came from or what his 'sources' are, but never have I seen anyone repeating the same lies over and over despite the facts refuting his 'claims'. On top of that, it's a miracle anyone can understand him with how badly he types. I think he's nothing but a troll. The R188 thing is the only 'issue' he keeps going back to.
