    I'm talking about Afghan as a nationality

    Many Pakistan Pashtuns want nothing to do with Afghanistan and detest it

    They just said we have a policy where you can't promote other forums.

    It was only a few months id been on a forum so I guess they didn't make it a big deal

    Some interesting posts in this thread.

    I was receiving emails from Merc to sign up & I did...but hardly contributed. It’s only in the last 2-3yrs that I became a frequent poster.

    I also have fond memories of PCZ @chandtara.
    I thought that forum was great.

    Mine's been an interesting journey:

    Joined PakPassion in early 2009 after lurking around as a guest for year or two, volunteered for their designing team in mid/late 2009, made banners stuff for them till 2012. Among all, the most memorable work was the photoshop task of Azhar Ali's butt-clapping debut cap handing pics. Anyway, in 2013-14 I got slow with their designing stuff as I was working for a local event and Pak Cricket was almost dead back then (Its still surviving on its last breath I believe). I only did 1-2 banners/bg in year or more. This lead to impromptu kicking out of me from the design team.

    Then they banned me for gossiping about conspiracies and team members.

    Created another account, got banned for feminism debate having opposite view to their team (No abuse from my side, still).

    Tried another time, created another account. This time I got banned for mentioning that I was there from 2009.

    They almost seem like they're working for BCCI. They advertise the wrong set of players, talk about wrong strategies to divert community's mind. Every Pakistani knew that Pakistan is going to lose a great bowling stock in 2010's ban. But they were acting 'we are doodh kay dhulay and they are pure evil so ban them'. Even mentioning that Indian hand was involved in that would lead to deleted post or ban, let alone planning to counter it.

    So after so many bans, said enough is enough. Left it for good. Won't be joining them ever again. Its time to break their monopoly by promoting rivals. Its time to tell them that only because they pay the hosting bills doesn't mean that they own the community. It is powered by free users, and that power can be snatched away if they kept their pathetic ways of enslaving the users there. (Okay, stopping :p)

    Someone (I think it was MiG but I don't remember exact) mailed me (in a group email) to join Cricistan few years back. I couldn't understand why. Everything was looking relatively smooth there. But now I do. So here am I.

    One thing that appeared strange here was sign-up approval from Admin. Its soo PPish. Users should be free to register once they pass through email verification on their own. Waiting for approval just kills the tempo for new users.

    I had no clue about cricistan for a long time, until i became a mod on PP for simming its Cricket League. Funny enough reference came from MIG and Saj who kept chatting about "Mercistan". Another mod at the time called King_Rizzy clarified to me that it was a slang for rival site called Cricistan.

    Yes, I've been mod of many apps forums, no one treated their mods like slaves. Run around like hungry wolves, search for any slightly unconvincing post, delete if their master gives a call.

    Pretty much that all Saj , he was angry at me because it started asking for the gift that he owed me for winning competition. He did initially try to to get out of it by making childish excuses. Eventually he agreed to send to me Pakistan's jersey , more than one year on i guess its still in mail , :D.
