Still.

Nameless wasn't banned. Ever.

I'll say the same thing from that time back when you wanted to bann Roblore forever:

Ignore tool exists. If you don't like someone, ignore him, and his posts won't exist for you.

It's pretty easy, and keeps with our theme of speech freedom, which seems to be slowly dying.

Moderators can't nor should use the ignore feature. I mean i was gonna just make a thread "should we do the nameless treatment on this guy" but hey if its a 3 day ban its fine. It did wonders to Roblore. He's now a great member to this forum and it makes me happy to see him being a all new man tbh.

Nameless wasn't banned because we had no mods at the time. Or else he would have been booted the second he started the alt topic. And the alt was banned anyway.

Also none of you have freedom, you're only allowed to think you have freedom ya!

I think this forum is pretty relaxed when it comes to its use of the ban-hammer. I've been banned from other forums for much, much less, and in a much shorter time.

I don't think the dude needs a perma-ban unless he's a repeat offender. Doesn't matter to me if I don't ever agree with him, but calling someone's opinion "idiotic" doesn't constitute a mature, valid argument.

Which only makes me think we didn't need the current amount of mods.

Mods should follow rules for modding, and for that we need pretty specific rules.

That, or Warlock should have the final word on everything.

I just don't want SoL to lost its touch. We ain't losing anything right now, but it's only the beginning, and later we won't be able to go back if we start heading towards a direction.

It's not like we really do that much other than kill spambots and look pretty.

I think, from previous experiences, that the best thing for a mod is a good text of rules, and that he should use his powers when rules say it, like it or not.

That helps at keeping opinion away, and offenders would have to blame the rules and not the mods.

Of course, What's-his-name was blatantly bitching about the double post rule.

Being a forum mod is a pain, and having a group of them is not a bad thing. If the mods are discussing the matter in a private forum, we're fine. It keeps us from having a situation where one moderator has a personal axe to grind and doesn't have anyone else to keep him in check.

Plus having multiple moderators increases the amount of folks we have to catch spammers or deal with a really bad runaway troll situation.

Asking Warlock to do it all by himself is a bad idea.

Hey! I bitched about it only because we don't have a good working multi-quote feature.

Wait... did you mean the other what's-his-name?

Summarizing what I'm saying:

Each time a mod uses his power, he should add:

-Because of rule 1337 (or whatever number the rule has) you get assed.

That would leave things clear and avoid "that mod hates me" shit.

Each subforum has a copy of "Rules and Regs" thread. If people can't be bothered to read it it's their own damn fault.

It shouldn't be about some list of rules, it should be about people being together in a civil manner. The rules don't need to be serviced because they can't be satisfied or angry.

We have been attacked.

Bringing back to the active topics 10 good dead threads.

Is there still hope? D:

Not bigger because I can't.

Seriously, this just demands making the rules be easier to see or something. What if you mods added a link to this thread at your signatures?

Sarcasm doesn't translate well over the internetz, does it?

But yeah, I think you guys caught the bot. Haven't seen anything from him in a bit.

Hows the insult rule moving on? Can you just add the obvious "racism isnt tolerated" and stuff like that? I know we haven't had people going racist pricks lately but better be safe then sorry, right?

With no objections to what we've been discussing so far, it'll likely happen by the end of the evening Sunday. If there are...we'll get back to you on that.

We need new rules about complete derailments and spamming.

Examples for both of them:

Complete derailment:

We're speaking about A, and then someone pops up speaking about neither B or C, but of Z. Something which has remotelly nothing to do with anything in that thread; or even the forum -_-.

Linear progressions that makes the thread change the topic is one thing, and just popping up with nonsense is another. At least, the one derailing should try to give it a sense regarding the main topic, just to link both topics.

Spamming:

When someone just needs to answer to everything in the forum. Ok, no problem... unless your messages are all of them less of 10 letters, or just make no sense, or are stupid, or are just Mr. Obvious crap.

Short comments just to give the forum a good atmosphere are always welcome, but there's a point between some and too much.

I assume these are in response to Rolandius? His habits have been annoying pretty much everyone lately.

Again, we're working on it, but things like this take time. The very last thing we want to do around here is restrict conversation to the point it's no longer fun to discuss anything because the minute you stray into grey territory you're hit by an infraction/assing.
