You don't seem to understand the PURPOSE of this forum, OZ.

I truly want it to be UNCENSORED, but I don't want to SAY that because people would say shit like "I'll kill you" or maybe start the "I'll kill al you faggots" shit like The Mean did. Thus, meaning completely uncensored would mean we couldn't (or shouldn't) do anything to such users. Having the words "Fairly uncensored" means that users SHOULD understand the forum is still moderated, but not as much.

Spamming is NOT a problem, and threads should NOT be locked without great reasons. (Maybe massive spam, such as 3 repeated threads or more) I mean, you do understand that the thread WILL die out, don't you? No thread lasts forever. Locking such threads will stop people from moaning or debating, and that is why this is here. So what if they have many pages of spam? Can you show me how the USERS benefit from such shit? Users don't. The forum, however, does. If you disagree maybe you should try looking at it from a 'business' perspective. If that doesn't clear it up, maybe you should just stop being staff. Sure, the board isn't a business (to anyone but Amish), but it should be ran to benefit the boards, too.

As for staff. Sure, many staff members are disrespectful. You think I'm not aware? Well, I am. I've noticed which ones are disrespectful to members and other staff. Let's see. BabyBoy comes to mind. Adam comes to mind. I come to mind. YOU (OZ) come to mind. I don't see your point. A LOT of the members understand as they speak with staff on MSN or AIM. Just because you're not part of the loop (same with you, Flash), doesn't mean the members are offended. I'm not even sure about some of the 'feuds' but I think members should be able to defend themselves. Any member unrightfully banned can come to me and explain the situation. I can't recall denying someone the chance to explain, unless I banned them.

Anyway, you can't threaten BBs position, OZ. That's not right. This forum ALLOWS staff to be insulted. Like I've said before, the "respect staff" rule is BULLSHIT if staff doesn't respect members. Besides that, why respect staff? We run the forums, but some may think we do a poor job (see christopheR.). (And please GP, don't go saying you should be a mod from the above aparagraph. You did this way worse than BB...to members, too.)

And just because you're admin does not mean you can throw your power around. I admit at first when I was admin I did NOT do that because Adam (Tardy) was the one who made all the decisions, even though he picked me as admin. I didn't want to do anything stupid or something he'd disagree with. But he told me to take over the forums, and I did. Maybe then I pushed my power around, but I firmly believe I haven't done that in a long time. Probably like a year or so.

Bye.

EDIT: Also, I want to know what you mean about Cody being robotic. Is that NOT what you wanted staff to do? Be more serious? Robots NEVER joke or show emotions, do they? So wouldn't you be wanting Cody to be that way? (Even though I have no clue what you're talking about)

Also, you mentioned the place shouldn't be like a prison. Well, prisons are serious places. You wouldn't joke with a murderer in prison, would you? No. Being loose on the forums allows for more posting and a better 'bond' between users and staff, even if it is insults.

Like I've said before, if you WANT me to "order" the other staff to stop joking around and to be serious, I'll do it for a few days. The board would be dead, almost all threads locked, and no one making new threads as they've been done before (and if they've ben done before, why talk about them again? and if you revive the old thread, would it not be a violation of the rules?). Really, I'll be very serious and act robotic, if you want. It wouldn't last, though. But if you want to give the "go ahead" I won't deny trying it.

What do you mean there, about me and loops? Sorry, I'm not being difficult, I just don't understand.

^ It just means we don't crave the attention of our online peers.


As for the forum, okay. I see your point. I was talking about the fact that Backfire posted and all the responses he got were along the lines of "stfu" and "fuck you". But, I was wrong. I admit that.
BB's mod spot? You know as well as I know, that I'd never demod BB. Have I done anything without consulting you yet? (In terms of adminning) No. Would I? No. I for one am just sick of the 'attitude' contained in BB's posts. I can't warn him. I can't threaten him. So I had to tell him straight out then. I thought as an admin it was my right to be able to tell someone to stop with all the smart-ass remarks. I was wrong.
And for abusing my power? Where? I haven't once abused my power yet? At least not seriously. I've joked with RZ by banning him, but I of course unbanned him. Maybe I missed something...
And for Cody's robot posting. How do I explain it? Take the Amish thread for example. The guy posts, and Cody comes along with some drawn out, serious, one-sided post. It's not the first time, I've noticed it a lot lately. I didn't say they're bad, they're hard to argue though.

I was wrong in the eye of the forums. Sorry for that forums. My bad. I just think the staff should be a little more considerate of the members. AT LEAST to the members. If they want to bash other staff, then so be it. That's my view. But it's most likely wrong.

Things are fine as they are, really.

Sure we mess around sometimes and argue sometimes but thats just life. If BB is irritating you you should maybe be a bit more mature than letting him get to you. His sarcasm or whatever doesn't break any rules so let him be..

As an admin, you did the right thing by saying it, but when it is directed to just me, when everyone else is doing it, that's where I won't listen to you. If you are setting the example, yea, I will follow. If I am the only one acting like that, again, I will follow what you say. Also, Lee was online at the time I banned RZ, so I just figured he'd run to Lee and ask to be unbanned. I guess he didn't. But, I'll be a robot too now. O shat, can't use the smilies.
