    I signed in this morning and PM'd him. Hopefully he gets it. I've played cards with him a few times in Chicago and he is a fun dude to hang out with at the table.

    I can relate to your chips too ..
    I conceived and had J5 working on my CPC Boardwalk Card Clubs, before the now "unmentionable" name import chip group buy of the ACBW chips name was chosen.
    I was literally in the process waiting for a J5 proof to post the pic & name ( I had already posted spots & color threads), when the GB settled on the name ( I believe my proof went up within days or a week after, but the AC threads are now deleted so don't hold me to that exactly ..) . I was also in in that AC GB, & remember posting name suggestions trying to get them on a different name, since the patterned chips were for one of the Only AC casinos NOT on or near the Boardwalk ....
    At the time , I did not want to mention or ask they use a different name due to my chips, since I didn't yet have my proof posted , certainly felt I wouldn't have had the clout anyway, wasn't sure it was even an appropriate thing to ask, & didn't want to ruffle any feathers ... ( perhaps I should have.)
    I will mention that no one organizing or in that GB ever asked me if I thought it was OK, after seeing my proofs & knowing the timelines ...
    It's no big deal now, but I was also bummed at the time, as you are now .

    Which closed or deleted thread would you have him post these in?

    Which leads to the question - is that what PCF is to you? A place to insult and belittle people? Nothing wrong on posting on this site, nothing hidden here, nobody in fear of what they might post, unlike the other site.

    Maybe you can ask your caregiver about this whole situation. They tend to be compassionate, caring people and maybe they can explain the concepts of empathy and understanding to you.

    Mackd, don't take this post personal. Pltrydik is obviously a noob, so cut him some slack in this regard.

    to be fair, there are a lot of shared mods across both sites. deletion or thread closing is very possible, its just that the site owner is absentee so i can for sure say its not his direct order giving out the commands

    I appreciate you posting this. I'm already starting to get past it just on the principle that life is to short to worry about something like this. I was torn about if I was being ridiculous for even being upset about it, even as I type this I'm kind of laughing at myself for letting it upset me but I have to admit I was pretty pissed off.

    Did I get booted off PCF? or is it routine maintenance?

    Should be the same in both sites. You’d get a banned message when you try to log on if you were banned.

    For the record, @Jeff is the only person who is a mod on both sites. I have discussed taking specific threads offline with Greg (the site owner).

    The chips are some of the worse looking chips around. I for one am not going to buy any for any price.

    I've started posting passive aggressive haikus now for entertainment sake.

    This is my protest.

    Couldn't have said it better @krickets. I have watched as he belittles one person after another. Now I'm just another name in a long line of inferiors that has felt his self righteous wrath.

    The dice chip tributes with PCF branded logo? Agreed.

    Yeah, I was all excited originally, but really don't dig the design. At all. Missed out on a pretty killer opportunity

    Someone really should propose to all the vendors to advertise on a new FB page for free. That could provide them a safe haven and attract traffic to other groups i.e. design and poker strategy etc.

    Just saying...start the chip rEvolution!

    p.s. I know very little about FB nor have I ever been a member but I would for poker chips
