leave it in the past lol
Dam too late i read it LOL. Does make for interesting reading, but each to their own. As many mentioned in there and in this thread just enjoy it, plus the recent CC win I think shows what can be done when we all do come together as a group.

On the merge i'm for it, but either way I honestly believe i'm still going to keep moving forward and the help i've gotten so far from a lot of you won't change either way. That help has come from both sides of the fence and is hugely appreciated. Also i now recall that back in '07-08 i moved to i4 for some reason when i first got my Q6600 and some nice corsair memory, although i never stuck with at the time. Then honestly I think i came back here due to the size/community but a lot of people are cross forums anyway.

Just hoping for work to calm down a bit soon, so i can play some more, as i've been a bit slack the last few weeks.

Well this is dragging on sooooo id say most people want this but no ones doing much about it probably because of the shitfight last time and no one wants that BS to happen again.


Make it happen people if you want it

We'll never agree on a team name ocau/i4mem or i4mem/ocau sooooo a team name every ozzy can be proud of just name the team Australia or Australian OC I know crazy right.

That way its a fresh start both old teams can think back and stand proud of their achievements and lets get on with it.

I'm guessing we'll still call OCAU our home forum for team thread and general trash talk yeh?

Now on with how to make this happen.

1. create new team I kinda like Australian OC for a name.
2. Get massman to move everyone ( dino or Pro can sort that )
3. Most people stay a few don't
4. New team created with a nice team rank boost other teams go WTF we just lost a place.
5. Other unhappy Hwbot team crying about how we just sandbagged the shit outa them
5. Happy days get on with it.

agree on the forced move for every member.. best way of combining points, sorts the issue of losing the many non-actives points.
any non-active who comes back and is like "wtf im on a new team" obviously has the choice to manually change teams, otherwise its business as usual under a new team name.

going from FB (didnt actually remember this myself, havnt found the post confirming either) last time around eva was pretty adamant that i4memory still be in the name somewhere, however.
which is why id like to hear from him this time before moving forward.


im personally not worried about naming, its just worth mentioning this might be whats on offer again this time around, in the interest of everyone making an informed decision.

and yeah we'd all still keep posting in a forum on here most likely

AuOC, AustOC, etc.
Even i4OCAU.

I assume massman is able to move us all together, without it being a manual thing for each member?

i4memory/OCAU with snappy and eva as captains (if they wish to be) would be ideal I think.

Pretty sure that was the case last time and +1 matt for a totally new name to see in a new era of ozzy OC

A new name is essential some people will wish to stay with the ocau team which is totally fine and then you get left with 2 ozzy teams with ocau in it . Just gets confusing imo.

Brand new team name for a new era makes sense to me.

Matt floated a couple of names as have I, come up with a few others and have a vote on the name.

I'm more a fan of Robbo and his merrymen. Something to really set in that you're the team and we're just here for the ride.

Given the push into sexying up overclocking, currently lead by 8 Pack, I feel we need a more fitting name.

Thunder from Down Under?

Why regret it t8y? It's applicable, suitable and personable. Nothing really wrong with that. And for what it's worth, my alias I have used since I was 14. *shrugs* Not a big deal. Everyone's nickname has a story, at least your nick isn't something boring and excessively overused like a mainstream game character (hello the thousands of solid snake, liquid snake, etc. users) or other equally tripe aliases. Own it bro!
