Title: Er guys......
Post by: 08micsta on 19 September 2007, 18:13
I hate to be a serious spoilsport.......
But I spend a lot of time on this forum and unfortunatly I only use my school account to access the forum. Unfortunatly our school has very strict rules and regulations with regards to its internet access and I am getting worried that this site will become blocked on our network due to the VDub Babes thread that is doing the rounds at the moment in the Nonsense section. Now I dont mean to ruin the fun. But as a 16 year old in my school i am not allowed to look at those images on the network. (Though i have no problems with the images :drool:)

Should our administrator run a check on this site he most certainly will block it. I there a way around this? i dont want you to moderate the thread and remove the images. But at the same time I dont want the site to be classified as restricted due to a few guys having fun  :evil:

What can we do about this guys?
Thanks in advance

i think the only way would be to not look at that topic, then it wouldnt show up on your history at school.

sorry dude

maybe an over 18's section is needed?

seconded...

Post by: vw-bob on 19 September 2007, 18:27
but how could that be controlled? some sort of password, or would it just be a case of "content not safe for under 18's" and then its at their disgression to be viewed?
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: Neaty on 19 September 2007, 18:32
well everyone has put their date of birth in when they registered so if they are under 18 then it will not let them enter.

or you could just do what you said bob and say "content not safe for under 18's" and then its at their disgression to be viewed?

Deleting all temporary internet files and browser history everytime you're finished forum browsing should help. If you use firefox you can have set it to do that automatically every time you close the browser.

Sorry guys but we won't be having an 18+ section, we already discussed that some time ago.

rubbish. for what? the odd rude word or photo? it clearly says not safe for work so if anyone is bothered they shouldn't look at it...

as for the school i'm not sure i understand how the school will know there are rude pictures on here? i'm no internet expert but unless they go scouting through it looking for it how will it be found?
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: Neaty on 19 September 2007, 18:49
i am not saying there should be one, it was just a suggestion as for a way to keep things of that nature in one place. not that it bothers me i was just making that point for arguments sake.

if the school look through the temp internet files it will just say the name of the website and not specifically what you have been looking it. I dont think many people at the school would expect you to go on a golf forum to look at naked ladies. but if you think they would then just delete them after each visit. i used to do that at work.

Would have thought that the NSFW part of the title would warn you off.  :rolleyes:
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: 08micsta on 20 September 2007, 08:12
I didnt mean to create an argument of sorts. :rolleyes:
We dont have access to our browser history etc on our school accounts and the program the school uses is called Surfcontrol or something like that and basically it scans the sites and if it finds anything the network administrator does not like it pops him a message and he checks it out and then bans the site.

VwVortex has been banned because of a picture that surfcontrol picked up and I dont want this forum banned. I guess I will go speak to him and tell him that i dont look at it.  :embarassed:

Thanks though anyway.

Some guys having fun! I'm insulted! Do you know how hard it is too find decent pics of girls with vw's! It's flippin' hard work :wink:

I used to have similar issues at school, but you either have to realise that you have twice the IQ of the admin guy & probably know alot more about PC's or you just stay clear of NSFW threads & hope the scan don't pick anything up.

As for an over 18's thread, that wouldn't chance the content of the website so can't see it helping. Sorry dude?! :undecided:
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: richandhazel on 20 September 2007, 15:24
Everyone on here is pretty good at warnings, i.e. NSFW or adult content etc. Steer clear of them and you should be fine.........that's what I do at work. I then check it out when I get home :smiley:
If you look at it whilst at work or school, despite the warnings, then frankly that is down to you I'm afraid.
Title: Re: Er guys......

I think we may appreciate we're 08micsta is coming from and no one would want this site banning from school/work etc, but I think if that thread gets locked or deleted now people will be hunting you down ! :grin:

Toph will know the answer to this, but I thought surf control type software blocked sites according to the meta tags of each websites and you can specify websites directly if required, as for if they are clever enough to search through threads and content of a website, specifically forums, then I don't know.

Post by: DaveGTiMK on 21 September 2007, 13:36
not to be a stick in the mud, but this is a car forum, for owners and enthusiasts of VW cars, the key there is OWNERS, so surely most people that visit the site will be 17+ as they own/drive a VW.

I didn't come on here to meet kids, I joined to discuss my interest of owning and enjoying my VW with like minded inderviduals. OK yeah there will always be silly threads on any forum, thats why the nonesense section is there so peeps can chat.

Any 16 year old surely is just browsing? Especially with a thread like the babes one, unrestricted girly pictures, I'd of given me right arm (actually maybe my left one) at 16 to have access like this.

As adults we should apply a certain level of decoram and conduct ourselves in a respectfull manner so a 18+ aduly only VW section should not be needed.

I think Len touched on this on one of the threads that got chopped due to people not acting in this way.

But anyway my point is this is an adult forum due to the topic its about.

I think Dave just about sums it up there.

Post by: richandhazel on 21 September 2007, 13:50
Having said that, I think its a good thing that our younger generation have an interest in VW's and certainly not something to be discouraged.

would never wish to discourage interest in VW's as I have always had an interest in cars of all sorts since I was but a wee lad. On sites like this there is a wealth of usable information for students or up and coming drivers to sink there teeth into. Maybe a safe for Skool section is needed an area that has to be clean in every sense?
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: 08micsta on 21 September 2007, 15:14
In my own defense to DaveGTIMK:

I am 16 years old going on 17 in less then a months time. And no. I dont own a GTI. No. I may not be as accomplished as you are (Or ARE you?).
The reason I am on this site is because I have an interest in Golf GTI's. My mother owns one and therefore I feel I have a reason to be on here. The whole reason for starting this thread was becasue I didnt want this site blocked and was wondering if there was a way around it.

I find this site has tons of extremely useful info for students and I find everything interesting. However I dont need a single thread about naked girls to end it all.

Thank you
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: DaveGTiMK on 21 September 2007, 15:47
08micsta I agree with you in the genral sense but it is an adult orinetated website at the end of the day.
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: AlanD on 21 September 2007, 15:51
Very true Dave.

Surley if 08micsta doesnt go into the thread with the ladies (which is quite possibly one of the best threads on here) then his school wont have a problem with it?

In all honest 08micsta, I think you might over reacting a little.
Title: Re: Er guys......
Post by: DaveGTiMK on 21 September 2007, 15:53
one final point, why aren't you learning while at school instead of looking at naked ladies, I should tell your teacher!!!  :grin:

Is that reqeust for me? It depends. What is a Aluminium fuel filler neck?  :lipsrsealed: :undecided:

Thats exactly what they come off..
basically what it says on the tin darl..an aluminiun pipe for where you put your fuel..
Not sure if the citigolf dimensions change compared to the mk1 cabs over here but if you get one of them daddies on, your not going to have the whole "ive got rust in my fuel" problem..
If your ever passing a dealers, would you just mind asking please? and possibly see if they hav a diagram etc? Im thinkin one may have to be adapted to fit..

As someone who works in sysadmin :wink: you dont have time to trapse thru logs to see what people have been looking at so don't worry.

Just use an anonymouse proxy (like www.slope.ws, etc). This should mask your web surfing habits from any pervert admins ;) If slope.ws is blocked I have a blacklist with them all on which you could try :lipsrsealed:

The part for the CitiGolf does fit the MK1 perfectly without being adapted and sells for R312 incl. VAT.
Let me know if you need more info. In your money R312 must be like peanuts.......

mk1 tintop and mk1 cabby filler necks are different sizes. They are about £30 from ECP for the tintop and something like £90 for the cabby when I bought one for my old cab. Apparently you can make the tintop fit the cab, but it needs some tinkering using more pipe and a clip or something like that.

Im going to have a word with my friend who has a citigolf as bloke no longer has his.
I have a feeling thought that the citi one will probs be the same as tin top golf one..
but rather than paying 90 for a cabbie one over here, ill see what works involved in tweaking a tin top one and may actually end up with a tintop, so might be in touch with you as citis are aluminium ay?

Will let you know darl thanks x
