Yeah, things got out of hand again. None of that sort of nonsense. Next time it happens I'm slapping down some warnings.

It was actually 6 threads. I don't know if anyone saw, but I actually replied and said I was okay with it when there were only 3 threads, which seemed pretty reasonable to me. When I came back a few hours later and saw 6, I figured it was time to clean up.

We're gonna get warned for following the rules that YOU wrote?
Har har har. To be fair, I wrote those rules a long time before I became a mod (or admin).

Amusingly enough, I also wrote much of the current real rules (although that was more of a team effort in the mod board).

For those who might have doubts, here are the six topics I deleted resting in Sanctuary, along with my original post that said I was okay with the three:



Wasn't trying to be a dick. I was actually curious
I wasn't offended or anything, just trying to lay out a timeline for you guys. You have to keep in mind that the forum was a very different place when I wrote those rules and everyone understood before I wrote the joke rules how far they could take things. I wrote the rules to make fun of that sort of thing (and also just for general humor).

Since the userbase of the forum has changed so much, that knowledge of how much is enough isn't really there, since no one on this forum has any common sense (which is also how it was in the old days).

Yeah, things got out of hand again. None of that sort of nonsense. Next time it happens I'm slapping down some warnings.
How does 3/4 spin-off threads constitute 'out of hand'? Don't promote spin-off threads in the rules and joke about them, if somehow they're actually against the rules? Is it just that it's okay when you do it Venser but as soon as other people start having fun, well we cant have that now can we?

The only person who moaned was REBAG, who himself created alts and multiple threads the other day arguing and swearing and even admitted it. But he didn't receive any sort of punishment? I'm not saying he should have I'm just saying none of this makes any sense; if you wanna threaten warnings for stuff at least make your own rules consistent first.
I created a single alt (Waffles,why not) that I will probably delete and 1 thread for the sake of having a nice place for alt's yeah it got out of hand but I didn't mean for that to happen

EDIT: THERE! I deleted my fucking alt are you happy now?
