i dont see why you have to take that as a personal challenge to make the rp forums completely un-fun

so congratulations on being the most persistent and probably most successful troll in recent history here.

Its not just the RP forums i crap on people in DOM too.

Domination is avoidable and you aren’t forced to see your **** unless you are in a bracket with you.

there’s only one RP active topics list

Inconnu Posted:

Currently players do voice their complaints, but I don’t see Flamebate getting better, whereas the opposite approach hasn’t yet been tested. The less people spend their typing skills on whining, the more quality and funny heron threads we have.

Thanks for the subtle reference. I’m a Permanoob who is afraid of herons. I made a thread about herons and I laughed at what happened there. I made other 2 post about herons in active threads where it was semi-relevant. I didn’t spam the last 2 pages of 2007 threads with herons, I didn’t interrump other people in what they were doing.

If you didn’t like the heron thread you just avoided it. It’s really annoying to have ALL the active topics be 2007 threads with nothing new added to them.

Whatever is the choice half of the users will be upset and the other half will rejoice.

A poll was made, votes have been cast.

People have their own opinions and some will just have to put up with being bumhurt.

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

So someone reminded me about this:

rules Posted:

It is at the discretion of any moderator/administrator to ban a user temporarily or permanently. Don’t make them want to.

the rule in question ITT already exists. not in the extent or context this initiative is pushing for, but it is there as a backbone for us saying “what you’re doing is bull****, i would like you to take a break and cool off.”

mods have been fairly lax in exercising this divine priviledge and i for one have pretty much forgotten about it and become afraid to use it.

basically what i figure will happen no matter is that flamebate bans will be implemented and that’ll at least give me the excuse to throw bans at the one or two morons who pop up every so often and deserve to be booted off the forums for short then progressively longer cooldowns.

as it’s been stated before, that sort of discriminatory ban wouldn’t happen on a regular basis.

*************************************************************


If discriminatory bans are such a huge deal, how come noone caught on and was outraged that I banned Sancdar for two days without breaking any rules for this thread in RP last week?

I don’t want to risk a ban for emptyquoting in CD, but I really can’t extrapolate on this further. Tubs is absolutely right, the mods just need the server-side corrections to make this idea work. I know it’s not top priority, but can we get this fasttracked please?

Also I don’t think Sancdar cared that much because he rarely posts.

Only if you’re unfunny and annoying to the point of distraction. Nowhere does it say we have to be welcoming/tolerant to ****ty posters.

How are you not getting it?

If i were to go around banning everyone for one off **** posts i would be demodded.

the point is that the ultraminority who go out of their way to crap on the community are going to be given bans to remind them to cool off and cut it out.

i’m actually dumbfounded because this entire thread has been saying that exact thing.

Hobart Bliggity Posted:

I wouldn’t say ****ty posters. lots of people here are ****ty but they don’t flood the forums making them unuseable with garbage. it’s the extremely small minority who spam to the point of absurdity who aren’t welcome

I just want to add after reading Tubsweetie’s above post.

I might be able to consider supporting this if only one mod had this privilege.

I can not trust this freedom with all the moderators.

Can I ask why? The rule has been around for as long as I’ve been here (joined, not modded). It very, very rarely gets used and even then it’s generally only used when there’s some consensus or the extremely senior mod (and the one it should be limited to, bumuming limiting is even a good idea) decides it’s worth it.

I take that back. The community should work to get rid of the undesirables.

I can’t see how giving you guys more power will be beneficial.
