For what it is worth, I can perfectly admit that I have myself a problem with a single point of the FAQ, which is
"Q: Isn't all this subjective?
A: Yes. The Mods do their best to be fair, but inevitably, this is a subjective standard. Another thing for you to Deal With."
And that I shall try to improve, as shown in the recent katacombed posts where after a certain bad personal experience with some of the mods, and a certain delusion and loss of trust, was not expecting anything anymore and got shown wrong. Well, it's sobering up, for sure.
As for Havohej, I have to echo Lyn's statements. You made an exceedingly clear statement against the use of HTFU on this forum, and yet you've decided to use it yourself. Poor show, man. Very poor show. We don't need you to make any apologies or take back anything you said, but you do need to know where your words have put you. Those four letters should be off limits to you.It was said tongue in cheek, much like the beginning of my last post. Grow up, learn to recognize a jest and get over it.
What the ?
Apparently you are the only one to recognize it, and worse, using that as such a lame excuse is beyond words. Was it just a jest since the beginning then, when you told people with admin comments that HTFU is not an option ?
So I suppose that's why you spend your time arbitrarily modding the shit out of everything that displeases you ? :/Read the Rules and FAQ. Modding the shit out of everything that displeases us (individually) is pretty much the only thing that keeps this place running.
Now, in all seriousness, I am not Morwen. I will have no qualms about nitpicking your every post until you've got enough warnings piled up against you for a p. ban to be supported by the entire team (as differentiated from the p. ban of Andreus Ixiris - for trolling the mod who just rightly modded him with his last ban on record being a 30-day, mind you - which was not supported by the entire team). Do not attempt to start a petty little shitfit war with me like the one you attempted to wage against Morwen for over a year.
Is that a threat ? As a mod, no, an admin, you should know better than that. I am not trying to start any war, the same way it was for Morwen, who is someone that is very nice and decent and somehow with whom I do not have had anymore issues with mod wise for a good chunk of time now since he changed a lot of his modding/posting habits in there.
You know, before that shitstorm about slaves on the summit and all, where I still consider to have been treated and talked to like utter shit, again and again, without much happening, yes, something has broken between me and the moderation team. Especially since I have always been one of its strongest proponents over the years, and still am concerning its rules. Maybe a bit too much, right. But before that, I was a very happy, discreet and productive member that went along with almost everyone nicely. Now I have been collecting countless private messages from disgusted members, either people that deserved it, or either people that just never got katacombed ever and just left because of :mods and cliques:.
You on the other hand, and am certainly not the only user to consider so, consider you as a troll admin, nothing more, nothing less. Correct me if I am wrong, but you seem to mod as you like without consenting with other mods. You say it yourself in your own answer. vOv
I was always told by Silver and other mods that they were actually to discuss mod actions before doing anything, and definitely not doing it on a whim alone, especially to avoid the dreaded claims of bias and subjective moderation, you know.
So yes, in any case, that forum was a lot more sane in the past. It has slowly started to drown into an obnoxious atmosphere where gaps between different schools of RP and OOC ideas poison everything. Maybe i'm doing it wrong, but I have always been crusading against that, because it's not pretty, and overall makes the place stinks like Chatsubo could have been in the past. I don't think people come here to read that their opinions are shit and be japed to constantly when people are emotionally unable to control themselves and keep civil. And then when pointed out for doing so just answering "Oh ? U not happy ? I don't care, i'm free of expression and can say anything I like ! Deal with it." If admins start to do that to, i'm not really sure where we are going.
So well, your little "Modding the shit out of everything that displeases us (individually) is pretty much the only thing that keeps this place running.", you know what you can do with it since I am not sure anymore that you actually know how this place has been running before you came back.
