Make sure to use your searchbutton or be willing to go back a few pages to see if something has alreadybeen posted so that the information isn't repeated time and time again! Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it. Also, feel free to refer back to the forum descriptionsabove when posting topics. If you aren’t sure where to post, come back here andre-read the info. Choose the forum that MOST relates to your topic. 3. Member Relationships: A lot of people here have become good friends. Some peopleare on here every day and have relationships outside of the boards. Do notexpect to make friends over night. Don’t be afraid of posting or askingquestions. We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contactthe board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make thismessage board a great place for all fans to hang out. If you stick aroundthough, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. **That said, please be extra cautious giving out anypersonal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Mostlikely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if youare unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/modthat closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts. If thereare certain members causing trouble in a particular thread, make sure youinclude their usernames and why you think they should be reported. **To report a post, use the Report button on the bottom-lefthand side of each post. If you can’t find it and still want to report thethread, copy the thread link and send it in a message to the boardadmin/mods.** 8. Signature Guidelines: For more information on signature guidelines, click here. 9. Spelling and Grammar: When posting, please make sure to double check your spelling.Additionally, please refrain from using text/AIM speak such as, "i wnt 2tlk b4 tmrrw" or "idk y u r tlking lyke that". It's ok to usesome terms like "lol", "bff" or other common abbreviations,but please don't compose a whole post like that. We appreciate your input andwant to make sure that everyone can read it. Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as yourdefault posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make yourposts difficult for members to read. 10. FileTrading/ Bootlegs: Discussion of how and where to obtain bootleg (illegallyrecorded) audios or videos is not allowed. Direct links to such files will beremoved promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keepsuch discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11. Becoming a Board Mod: If you are interested in applying for a board mod position (or suggesting another member), please PM the board Admin for more information. You can also email your application to tinamcrofficial@gmail.com with the following info: 1. how do you think you can contribute to the MCRmy community 2. what qualities do you posess that will make a good mod 3. do you have any mod experience? 4. other fun facts about yourself Only the board Admin has the ability to add new mods. Any threads about mods (ie suggestingmembers, bashing mods, etc) will be deleted. If you have concerns about theboards, either post them in the Help section or address it with anotheradmin/mod. 12. Respect BoardMods and Administrators Mods and Admins are only doing their jobs to enforce rules.They are volunteers that are passionate about the community and help it to run. Disrespect towards mods will not be tolerated. However, if you feel they haveacted harshly, please contact me privately and i will pass evaluate the issue.The mods are very nice people and if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact them.

      Haha what was it for? Something in Manchester?

    footwear - wellies. or a different pair of canvas shoes or trainers for each day cos they'll be annhilated after a day of mud. even when it's sunny - there's mud. shorts and tees. again - disposable. bin bags - big dustbin ones ... useful as flooring, storage, rain protection. best advice for toilets - obviously yes to hand sanitiser and wet wipes, but for bog roll itself ..... have it on striing or rope around the neck like a necklace cos in the toilet cubicle there's nowhere to put the roll down and hands are often in use holding everything out of the way of the messy interior. so much easier to tear a piece off the roll as it dangles under your chin. and read the festival forums for answers to common queries. R&L has one - I'm guessing most fests do.

    shout it out and i'm sure we'll all be in agreement that it's the most brilliant idea you've had since the last most brilliant idea cos you are brilliant with ideas!!
  4. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    oh my lord. am i on drugs? that was completely weird! flash frames n all just about right for the odd day i've had i need to sleep!!!
  5. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    i'm ancient!! but that's externally! inside i'm just as screwed up and confused as the rest of you. I kind of get the notion of there being generational conflict but I also think it comes down to personality. There's plenty of reasons why older generations might be disparaging of the younger ones, and in a sense that's really how it should be. Just cos often younger generations have seemingly easier lives than the ones that went before them, and older generations, increasingly aware of their mortality, begrudge that because they maybe struggled a little more. But there's also many aspects of younger peoples lives that are harder. so really, it's swings and roundabouts. But there are older people who don't judge, or rant about the 'yoof'. maybe they can see in the younger generations, the same behaviour they themselves exhibited as youngsters and understand that's how things work. and rather than begrudge them their youth or envy their freedom, they try to provide wise counsel by virtue of the wealth of experience they have. I hope I end up as one of the cool old people! Me and one of my best mates have decided when our kids leave home and are settled, we're spending a summer going to all the music festivals and generally behaving appallingly - just because we can hahahaha. leave our jobs, no mortgages to worry about - just have some well deserved fun
  6. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    hahaha. I have no idea as to the origins - but basically it's when everything goes wrong, plans fall apart ... it goes pear-shaped! why pears? don't know! what's wrong with being pear-shaped? nothing! it's a mystery, but it's a polite (and very British!!) way of describing a situation that isn't going to plan.
  7. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    Universal, with the whole family. on the basis that as it's your 21st you could (possibly) hope that they'll all make a bit of a thing of it and of you. and maybe your mum is kind of expecting you to do something to include everyone, rather than just for you (though it is your day so you should be able to do things for you not for everyone else!!) If you went with just her, would it be a bit strained? I seem to recall that in the past you've had occasions where your family haven't really gone to town on birthdays, and that you don't always see eye to eye. Would being just the two of you get a little tiresome and fractious? If the whole family went, would it be worse than just two of you? it's tough cos if you all go it maybe won't feel like it's being done for you as a treat, but as a family thing. But I guess if you go into it expecting it to not be a celebration for you - if it becomes that then it's a pleasant surprise. ask her what she wants to do. not in a 'you decide for me' kind of way, but in a way that shows you're considering the whole family and being mature and reasonable. Not that you aren't anyway but it never hurts to reinforce that notion to family/parents as they might sometimes still think of you as being younger/childish/immature etc. Voice it as "mum, I've been thinking that it would be fairer to everybody if we all had a treat for my birthday, instead of me being selfish and doing things just for myself. what do you think?" just an idea but if it all goes pear shaped, come to visit us on here and we'll do our best to celebrate in a virtual way

    ^^ yep. it sure is legit. and we need the word to spread far and wide ... so fly, my minion, do your work ... tell them "come one, come all, to this MAGIC affair" in all seriousness, yes, it's a definite thing, so hang around and join in the fun
  9. feels odd when you get a notification that someone is following you on twitter, yet when you check ... they've unfollowed you, like they decided i'm just not worthy :P

      I had two!! just cos i was tweeting G and wormy and jj stratford. she's replied a few times - then followed me briefly before realising the error of her ways. but at least i saw her momentarily on my followers list. the other was tommy tadeo - but he was superfast in removing himself. briefly, i was in with the in crowd ... then out again!!

      Ah it's okay, they don't know what they're missing. They'll refollow.


    4. StarSurfer


      hahahahaha. much chuckling.

      in all things - always quality over quantity

  10. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    Brinn ... I chuckled a number of times - just because I can fully identify with some of the things you said ... your reactions to things were excellent (including telling Gerard 'thanks for having the show' ... stylish!). I've been grinning a very wide smile whilst reading it. Soooooooooooooooo glad you got to meet him and delivered the book to him. Bet you felt really really good when he took it And so pleased you've shared the experience with us.
  11. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    have a FANTASTIC time! hope you get to meet him afterwards
  12. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    well thank you for asking ... and yes!! B. U. S. Y. I am so ready for a day of nothingness, but it's unlikely to happen any time soon. and my week seems to be coloured with an abundance of Gerard-ness! Like .... he's EVERYWHERE!!!!! It's a good thing ... but when you follow so many MCR fan accounts on twitter and facebook, everything gets retweeted/reposted/shared that the effect is magnified a hundred-fold. (And you know it's gone too far when someone refers to him as BAE!!! No. just NO.) How's your week been? aside from cat-a-licious?
  13. Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

    I think for a lot of people, they don't end up using their academic qualifications - they often end up working in other careers. But having those qualifications isn't just about what you've learned - it shows prospective employers that you were prepared to make a commitment to learning, and it also helps you with other life skills, like organising your time, budgetting etc. But employers also understand that not everyone is cut out for the academic route - no path is better than the other, either one could make things easier or harder! And most people don't really know what they want to do! You go to college/uni and study stuff you enjoy or you're good at - doesn't mean you'll end up working in that field. You often end up jumping into a job cos you need funds - if you're lucky it will be something you enjoy. The secret is to find what you enjoy and get someone to pay you to do it. Other than that, it's often a case of work to live. That isn't meant to sound gloomy - we all need money and it's a trade off between having a job you enjoy and paying the bills. Lots of people earn loads doing jobs they really don't enjoy - but it gives them more choices in their lifestyle. Most of us do a job on little more than minimum wage, but hopefully have other things that make us happy. But whatever you do, as you get older and maybe have a better idea of what you'd like to do - you can always re-train. Or you just accept things as they are and roll with it. Or engage in philosophical debate about the meaning of life

    I left school eons ago .... and I'm still trying to work it out!!

    Well the move is good news As the move date is quite close to your anniversary date, could you not go for something symbolic - like key to the door/key to my heart kind of thing? Or is that too slushy?
