Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Thanks! I guess they flag for a lesser event on Jan 14th, then.

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Yes.

January 14 - საქართველოს სახელმწიფო დროშის დღე (sak'art'velos sakhelmts'ip'o droshis dghe, "Day of the State Flag of Georgia"), (2004).[

But since it was introduced in 2004, I think it is for the new flag, also introduced in 2004.

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Where do we ask for a flag update on the board? And the introduction of new flags, like South Sudan for example.

They've had no less than three women World Champions, two of which were champions for a really long time - Nona Gaprindashvili and Maya Chiburdanidze. Together these two ruled from 1962 to 1991. That is no small feat for a small nation.

Btw, I felt I should mention here that THE thread has been closed after a brief visit from its founder and his friend. This time all their new posts were simply deleted. So guys - if you're reading - nothing I can do for that one. But it was nice to see both of you again
I thought THE Thread was the best topic Dylan came up with, but maybe by shutting down his threads that will help him to stop coming back! I've heard he has an ISP (I believe it is called) that can be changed. That is why the Mods are having so much trouble with him!

No, the next one in Jan 26th. Australia. Comes at the right time, we'll have paid attention to Australia then for almost two weeks.

I do understand his reasons behind coming back. It was an unfair ban, like they somehow decided "Let's ban this guy. It will be fun."

I don't think you know the whole story behind Dylan or you wouldn't think the ban was unfair!

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Well, do tell it than. I'm curious to know the inside story. From the surface story seems like he didn't do anything...

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Dylan turned into Freak3yman! He was trolling all over the place and admitted he was doing it deliberately. You couldn't believe a word he said because he admitted telling lies as part of his trolling! He started stupid threads and got mad at those of us that told him to behave and act like he did when he first came on the Forum when we all liked him. So then he started saying bad things about us! It got really wild and each time he makes a comeback it gets even wilder! It took me a while to see your post so that is why I didn't answer right away.

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

^Thanks Mae.

Maybe he was trying to fit in somehow but couldn't and then decided to just have some fun, and again hit a wall, after which it was simply a matter of time for him.

Trying to come back may be a way for him to continue having fun, and that's the thing. This place lacks his kind of fun which is certainly present on many forums without being considered extreme trolling. On the other side, I know a forum where if you ask a question without reading about it on the internet first, you get extreme flaming.
