Rants
Rant. Bitch. Moan. Vent. Fairly uncensored posting.
Moderated by: Administrators and Super Moderators

No where does the description of this forum say you can spam. Lately that's what this forum has turned into. That worst part is, it's mainly the staff doing the spamming, myself included.

What bugs me though, is the fact that some newb makes a thread in an attempt to try and get on members' good sides. Then when he doesn't, the trusty staff comes in and flames him for no reason. (You know who you are - BabyBoy.) Instead of closing/or having the thread closed, they decided they should flame the guy for like 15 posts.

Flash thought that threads weren't closed here. Which is mostly true. But if people are just going to spam ridiculously(sp?) here, why not treat it like all the other forums?

Shut the fuck up. We come to have fun, and until you start doing what you supposedly are saying, then I will follow, but until the real admin says something, I'm not going to to stop flaming in the almost uncensored forum.

There's spam in every forum, not just this one. This one always had it's fair share of spam anyway, because post counts aren't in effect in Rants.
And I was under the impression that unless the thread is extreeeeemely bad, we don't lock threads or anything in Rants.

Nah I agree, I know where he is coming from.
This place isn't respected enough, nor is it ran properly.
I have no problem with any of the staff who run this place but I think they need to do it a little more seriously.

I like coming on here and talking to all you guys and posting in the Wrestling threads and all the others, but I think this place is a little too immature. I know I have done it, so have a lot of people, but I think we need to smarten up a little.

I know people have their fun or whatever, but seriously sometimes it gets a little over the top.

So would you like us to become real mature and professional? That means whenever ANYONE spams, they get warned. And if they do it again repeatedly, they get banned. All the fun and light-heartedness would be gone. It'd be ran like a prison or something. We'd hardly have any visitors because it'd be ran so tightly. No one would post or anything.

Like Lee said, a forum needs spam and off-topic posts to work. If you want, we could crack down and be real hard with spamming. We'll delete all spammy and off-topic posts, and you can see how active the board looks. I can probably guarantee you the forums would be dead if we did that.

I didn't say I wanted you to do any of that Cody, geez...
and I wasn't targeting you either, I was just stating that it's good to be easy going and stuff, but sometimes it goes a little overboard.

I mean for people like Red & Yellow Hogan and Backfire that's an exception, because they don't listen.
lol.

But if you ran it like a prison you would lose people, but also if it was ran really sloppy you'd lose people also. I was just saying what I thought. :argh:

I agree with what OZ said, at least to an extent. The staff should be encouraging members to post (admittedly not spam). This isn't meant to be a personal attack, and unless I've misunderstood the whole thing, I don't understand the little BB/RZ dispute, spat, whatever it is and neither do I think it's really appropriate.

I think certain members of staff need to remember that they don't own this forum or the people who post here, they just help it run a bit smoother. New members who see staff picking on regular members will think that it's okay, and then the problem spirals.

I also agree with what Cody and Lee have said about off-topic posts and spam, but as with everything there are lines and stuff. Oh, I've started sounding all serious now, which isn't what I meant to do. I'll just stop.

It's no use, Flash. You can't win. No matter what someone says here, someone else has to disagree. No offense to him, but if Cody doesn't see what he likes, he goes into fuckin' robot mode posting.

And BB, I'm not one to make idle threats, but if you value you're mod spots you'll stop with the smart-ass comments to everyone. You're worst than GP now.

People don't get post counts, then why should slight spamming matter?

The only reasons why a thread should be closed in Rants is for something very bad like Racism. Thats why it has no mods, meaning people are allowed to go off-topic, they're allowed to argue and they're allowed to bitch.

Duh!

First, I am not worse than GP. I still do my job. I do what an admin says, but in this case, you weren't setting an example, you just come out one day and post this thread, so why follow if no example is given. kkk?

Ever heard of sarcasm? And what part of "...you'll stop with the smart-ass comments to everyone." didn't you comprehend?
