This is where postcount-keeping shows its nasty face.

No forum has ever benefitted from displaying postcount and having ranks related to postcount, it just encourages spam.

If I were a mod now since 2/3 of those topics have been locked, I'd remove postcounts and take away ranks based on number of posts alone.

If I were a mod, I'd only be there to delete spam, give out necro post warnings, and lock old topics. But I would never mess with someone's profile, invade their privacy, change their post count, and/or anything above the rules or fairness. In my opinion, those should be the qualities of a moderator.

And, if Kayin granted me the power to ban, I might or might not take advantage of it. Depending on how some of you act.

i think that after 3 warnings, a permaban is fair
because they come back, and theyre pissed off, and they get more warnings... and everybody hates them, and makes fun of them... and then they freak out and spam the fuck out of this nice n' tidy place, and then they get banned after hours of spamming whilst the admins are offline... fuck it, if they screw up 3 times just permaban the fuckhats and save us all some time

Clearly the two of you are overreacting. >_<

Kelly simply said that, after 3 warnings, you simply risk getting permabanned.  That doesn't mean you'll actually get one.
Title: Re: IF you were a mod...
Post by: DraconicDescendant on February 11, 2009, 10:51:19 pm
Yes...But perhaps overreacting is the best thing to do. But who has the official say in this oligarchy? The mods and Kayin. I consider myself to be the peoples' voice, along with Yule and Despy and Rag and whoever else I cannot think of right now.

Title: Re: IF you were a mod...
Post by: Dagnarok on February 11, 2009, 10:59:11 pm
I know.  But don't go thinking you'd get permabanned because of one warning that was over a year old.
Title: Re: IF you were a mod...
Post by: ybbald on February 11, 2009, 11:02:37 pm
I got a couple warnings from when I didn't know necroing was encouraged. The other forums I frequent encourages necroing to making new threads on the same topic. Because it allows all the discussion to be in one place which makes it easy for someone wanting to read up on it.

How old is this forum? A few months over a year old? Six months is a long time compared to how long this forum has been around. Remove one warning if they go six months with no warning. They go 5 months and get warning, it is reset and they have to wait 6 months not one.
Title: Re: IF you were a mod...
Post by: Lion on February 11, 2009, 11:07:00 pm
Also, I got my warnings because I didn't know the rules! They don't mention the rules when you sign up!
They don't even have a simple topic mentioning the rules!
That, to me is bullshit!

Remove one warning if they go six months with no warning. They go 5 months and get warning, it is reset and they have to wait 6 months not one.


This.

Honestly, do you seriously expect dsk, Kayin, Kitty, and myself to be THAT "by the rules"?

@JCM:  Same question.  Besides, does that really matter?

Last time I proposed the 6 month thing, Dsk was all like "Oh, no, they're PERMANENT. Rule breakers must be PUNISHED"

So I'm trying to emphasize that it would only take place if the person had shown a real long lasting change of attitude.

And you, Kayin, and Cat are fine. But Dsk is basically a robot about the rules >_>

This is our distress, too much fluctuating in rule interpretation.
Sometimes interpretation is too harsh and other times the situation is
overlooked.  Some rules need revisions, such as the derail blanket rule.

Rules are meant to guide, not dictate; merely a suggestion of what is right and what is wrong.  Of course there's going to be fluctuation in interpretation; unless you want 2 paragraphs explicitly stating what can and cannot be done regarding a certain rule, then you're stuck with the vague explanation.

So I'm trying to emphasize that it would only take place if the person had shown a real long lasting change of attitude.

Well there isn't too much anyone but the person in question can do about that; if you're not going to change, neither will the result.  There... isn't much else I can say about that.

And why would you find the rules of the forum in either of those boards JCM?  "General Discussion" I can understand, but I repeat, does that really matter?  If you WANT to know the rules, you'd go and FIND them regardless, wouldn't you?

Personally, I think yours should be gone now. >_>  Draco's should likely be gone too, seeing that neither one of you has been a bad Samaritans for ages now.

Draco was here after the rules were posted, so I COULD argue that he should've known better.  But since I don't recall being the one who gave him (or you) a warning, I can't exactly argue for another person's actions.
Title: Re: IF you were a mod...
Post by: DraconicDescendant on February 11, 2009, 11:52:09 pm
It was one tiny thing, we got warned for telling some guy that everybody hates that we hated him. If I get warned for that, then why weren't people warned for lynching penisdude? You could argue that that was before Dsk got serious about the derails, but I think that if it's okay for penisdude, it's okay for sodra.

I don't figure that the warnings should fade over time, but I could see an appeal process if you think you got warned for no good reason. You'd have to take it to a different mod in PM's, IMO.

I also like the somewhat flexible implementation of rules: it means that people who try to find 'loopholes' and such can still get banned. I mean, Sodra didn't really break any posted rules if I remember properly, he was just a little tool who got the firm facepunch of authority delivered. If the rules start being 100% rigid and the mods turn to robots, you get people annoying working by them. This way: owned.

That's my two cents on it.

@Dsk

Okay...

First, you seem to immediately take sides on the matter of new forum members that get on your bad side early. I can't entirely blame you, due to the stream of retards pouring in here, though.

I thought you went a little crazy with the warnings for derail, perhaps more serious multiple offenses would issue the grounds for a warning.

Now, it seems awkward talking to you just because you scare me a little. I don't know how you can fix that, it's just you.

*sign*  I was waiting for Evan to post, but seeing as I can't wait any longer, I'll respond now.

3 Things:

1) You two are just full of yourselves; why are you trying to tell Cat, dsk, and myself how to do our jobs?

2) In the thread in question, I see 5 counts against you and 4 counts against Draco.  Why?  Because you played "Follow the Leader", where the leader de-railed the thread and the two of you blindly followed along as far as I'm concerned.

Telling sodra that he's gonna get banned (which I can almost guarantee got both of you warned for de-rail) and demanded WE DO ban him are not valid points.  Neither is stating that he acts his age.

Calling sodra a retard doesn't put you above him; if anything, it puts you on the same level. There is no reason for that kind of behavior, absolutely none. Glad to see the honesty, but if you're so good at putting your head to use, you certainly didn't do it then.

Oh wait... maybe I should go around and give everyone who made the slightest off-topic comment a warning... just so you'd get what you want and you'd FEEL BETTER!?

3) This happened almost a month ago; if it didn't bother at the time you got warned, why is it bothering you now?  Here's some logic for you:

Draco and Yule are good and honorable people 95% of the time.  They're enjoyable to have around, and they both make the forum that much more interesting.  Now, answer this for me; where is the ever-looming threat that these two are seemingly so afraid of?

I seriously have no idea why both of you decided it was okay for worry over your own hides when there was clearly no reason for there to be any.  Stop the overreacting and put your brains to use, because enough is enough.

And JCM,

DUPHWAH!? I never start off-topicness! I just go along with what everyone else is talking about!

Consider point 2 a heads-up for you; not paying attention to what you're doing WILL hurt you... and I'm not talking about just on here either.  Personal experience and all that.

Show me how I crossed the line of constructive criticism to diminishing you guy's authority. Hell, we want
you to have more authority.

2) In the thread in question, I see 5 counts against you and 4 counts against Draco.  Why?  Because you played "Follow the Leader", where the leader de-railed the thread and the two of you blindly followed along as far as I'm concerned.  2 mods posted in the thread and did not stop the off-topic behavior, what message does that send?  You cannot derail what has already been derailed, ergo it should be the op of the derails fault.

Telling sodra that he's gonna get banned (which I can almost guarantee got both of you warned for de-rail) and demanded WE DO ban him are not valid points.  Neither is stating that he acts his age. <---what the thread was about?

I seriously have no idea why both of you decided it was okay for worry over your own hides when there was clearly no reason for there to be any.  Stop the overreacting and put your brains to use, because enough is enough. There was a settlement made a long time ago to end this.  But you really do not know anything about me and Draco as people; you know our personalities.  This rubbed us the wrong way, and we are worrisome people by nature and that isn't a recipe for letting things go.  But because of the settlement this is pointless.

It's because you told him we should give him a warning because we apparently ignored him completely.  And on that note,

This has gone on too far, ban this preteen noob.
If that is the stance you take, then how in the hell did Evan not get a warning!?
What are you looking at? How was I "screaming", I was presenting valid points.
Evan just said GTFO!
That is intentional oversight!


Any response, nobody can disagree with this.

THIS is telling us what to do, not constructive criticism.

The 1st quote clearly states that we should've already acted and are not living up to your standards.  The 2nd quote (bolded area) tells me that we're taking sides and therefore "bullying" you or "playing favorites".  The not-bolded area of the 2nd quote simply reinforces that you want Evan to get a warning, and suggests that you would have given him one in that scenario.

There is no reason for any of us on here to have more authority simply because of the existence of idiots.  If you can't handle being around them, well then do I have a surprise for you....  Besides, Cat already has the power to ban people, and that is plenty enough as it is.  If you have a problem with how much power we have, you'll have to talk to Kayin about that (consulting that he's the only one who can give/take away our power) because I can assure you, the three of us won't.

The topic was about how old a person was, not about how to act a certain age; how old a person is and how they behave are two separate things.  A minor difference, I'll admit that, but  I am certain that you weren't warned for any one post; it was the whole sha-bang.

No; you can't de-rail what's already been de-railed.  But you CAN join the de-rail train.  *HINT HINT*

Again, you continue to ask me to justify the actions of another person.  Umm... how?  I'm not dsk, nor am I Kitty.  The best I can do is respond as to how I would've handled the situation, and I can guarantee you won't get what you're looking for.  And that's ignoring the time lapse.

Your personality is part of what makes you a person, so therefore, I DO know you guys to some extent, unless you're saying that you've been lying to us this whole time.  And if you seriously believe I don't worry for any person on this forum, you're sadly mistaken.

Then again, if it's so pointless, why respond?
Title: Re: IF you were a mod...

  • Okay, so, by what I see, you can get warned here for expressing opinions, BULLSHIT! Just like Youtube. That is one thing I'd change.
Please, to tell me when this happened.
  • As I already said, I would loosen the warning system a little bit.
The warning system is for stupid people. You know how not to get warned, you don't break the rules, everyone sleeps happy.
  • Have only people whom start the derail warned.
Following your logic, I can kill os steal as long as I want provided that someone started? No. Someone started, you continued.
  • And tons of other things that I can't think of as of now.

If I were a mod I'd stop annoying necroposting and shameless begging to be a mod.

Please Rag, I know you're here you beautiful beautiful man. I've been looking to be a mod my whole life, please please. Please. Please. I'll be a good one and won't cause any trouble unlike that rotten Ryan from down the street who called us all horrible names that time. Please, you can trust me!


Irony, anyone?
