Right, I've already emailed you about this and there seems to have been no reply. So I'll post it here.

Moderators need the ability to ban, or at least suspend users. The sheer volume of idiots and the amount of time it takes to review each one means that we're not able to deal with them effectively. Give us the right to ban by collective consent or at least to suspend, please.

Thanks.

I agree with this. Maybe not a complete ban, but a suspension, and the admin can decide wether or not to ban the suspended person. We, the board, needs something like this with all of these damn troll accounts.

There has been an influx of bothersome members lately, while still not as bad as the "attacks" by Green Day fans and that one group I don't care about the name of, I still agree with this idea. We need to keep the characters away from the board while you decide whether or not they should be banned.

This should have been done long ago. This idea NEEDS to come into action. Spam is all I see, half the time here. This board needs improving and this idea could most definately improve it. Nice one, TUNB.

nah, i don't want banning. right now i leave things pretty much laisser faire: only edit reported pictures and *really* bad spam. if the admin wants to give us carte blanche to really clean up the board and remove crap... shit, if we wanted to have an even remotely intelligent general chat section it *could* happen, but at least 2/3rds of the topics would have to be deleted.

but i'd rather stick with the laisser faire thing. i'd leave porn and the like too, but people like to bitch about it. that and i guess it's not "legal" or something as the offspring appeal to children.

While I'm sure it's very satisfying to ban people, I don't think it'll solve anything. We don't IP ban, so if users want to be annoying, banning will most likely only encourage them as it'll give them some sort of attention-whoring vindication. Spammers usually lose interest after only a few days anyway.

simple ip banning doesn't do shit anyway. look at that 'who's more intelligent' post, it's got lodat's logins from that other board. rather wildly differing ips and he wasn't even trying, it's just the way that his ISP works. or if he was trying it was a rather pathetic attempt, as they all immediately resolve to AOL domains...

anyway, banning would be a short term solution to mass spamming, it does nothing to solve general idiocy.

I am with you totally on that one.

Mods should also be able to IP ban / suspend troll accounts too as a lot come from the same people. Their regular account should also be banned / suspended becasue they don't deserve to use the forum at all if they can't use it properly by spamming it with shit.

The question is, how old are you? (I have another ones if you want to answer)
how nerd are you?
why do you come to this forum?...
i'm 21.
i'm *very* nerdy. to get an idea: i use linux as my primary operating system, i'm majoring in physics and computer science, but it looks like i'll get a math degree too. i was voted by my high school's teachers as "science student of the year" my senior year. i've fixed my tv using just duct tape.
i come to this forum mostly due to history. i liked the offspring a long, long time ago, though i do not anymore. in fact, i can't stand the offspring. but i've got history with a lot of the people on the board, so i stick around.

I disagree. Mods should not have the power to ban OR suspend. Check out some of their posts where they are slagging other users. If they had the power to ban or suspend, they would do so to all posters they do not like, and that isn't the way The Offspring BBS ever was run or ever should be run.
I still feel there are several people who are mods who shouldn't be because of their attitudes towards some other posters. These mods are NOT keeping an objective attitude about ALL posters. Want names?

Linda - Wether they choose to or not, all mods will be biased. They're human. Nonobjectivity is a serious(and possibly the only) possible down side of having moderators, but we're still better off with them.

I stick to my original opinion. The boards should have mods who haven't posted here for years on end. New blood, so to speak. They would be more
unbiased than.

TheUnholyNightbringer

All people have prejudices as soon as they hit the board. It takes 7 seconds to get a first impression of somebody.

And as for your "mods do not have an objective viewpoint about everyone".. only today, I closed one of Justin's threads for it's content. And also, if you'll look closely, I said banning by COLLECTIVE consent. As in a certain number of mods would have to agree, severely reducing the bias.

He called to his dad, "Hey Dad, what are you doing?" The dad answered, "Playing Cards". Little Johnny asked, "Whose your partner?" The dad answered, " Your mom".

Little Johnny then passed by his older sister's room. Again, he noticed the covers bouncing. He called to his sister, "Hey Sis, what are you doing?" The sister answered, "Playing Cards." Little Johnny asked, "Whose your partner?" She answered, "My boyfriend."

A little later, the Dad got up and went to the bathroom. As he passed Little Johnny's room, he noticed the covers bouncing. He called to his son, "what are you doing?"

No it didn't, Linda. They might want to ban you, and they might be justified (because you're a disgusting paedo predator and this isn't NAMBLA.com), but nobodies going to. Stop with the delusions of persecution already, the delusions of grandiour (lolz, or delusions of adequacy) should be more than enough for you to deal with.

I thought moderators already had the power to ban people. I support this idea, but, moderators, please don't ban me if you get the chance.

You're too small and insignificant to warrant a ban.

Answer the question you fat, disgusting slob. When did any mod abuse their power over you, and how can you think they'll just suddenly do so out of the blue if they're given power to ban?


Also, prove that your post was too complicated for me by explaining the finer points that I just couldn't grasp. Show everyone how smarter you are than me.

probably more idiots will whine about our nazism & lack of anarchy, if we get more poweurz.

I'm all for temporary suspension, though.

I agree. That way we can still get them out of the way, while the Admin decides if they should get banned.

Also, people should stop saying we're supposed to be the "nicest" people on here. We didn't get our votes for being nice. If we did, we'd be accused of being chosen because our friends voted for us. And if we were nice all the time we wouldn't really make good mods "Hmm...this looks like spam//porn//whatever...but I like this person, so I'd better not delete it." That wouldn't really work either.

Banning powers, if moderators get them, should be totally strict. If moderators abuse their BANNING powers, then there should be some sort of "severe" punishment from the Administrator. (loss of modship, maybe even loss of membership, etc.)

Also, there should be a warning then banning system. Informal warnings don't count, but after three formal warnings, a temporary banning takes place or something.

Seems reasonable to me.

i kinda agree that mods need more power but im not really for one person deciding who should and shouldn't be banned. maybe a system where all the mods would have to vote or agree or whatever to ban someone, then no one person can abuse their power and no one can really complain or whine about it.

There could be some sort of voting system when it comes to banning. Like a member can only be banned if two or three moderators have voted for it. That way it doesn't depend on one person but more, and therefore can't be abused that easily.

well...now I'm serious!

BBS should be happy that we have at least moderators!

Spammers are irritated by this f'd up thread!We have already maybe 10 threads like ADMIN:Please read!

This thread should be unsticked/closed/deleted because it looks like ADMIN has no interest about it! and it's only irritation for spammers!

I wanna see ADMIN's opinion as soon as possible,if not it should be unsticked/closed/deleted as soon as possible!

The best way to reduce spammers is to ignore them!

I can't believe that intelligent people like TheUnholyBush, LittleJohnnyNemesis.....are demanding the power from ADMIN!

Maybe its me but I don't see it that bad.

You can add them on your ignore list!

I believe a lot of spammers became because of our BBS dictators (Sin Studly,the_GoDdEsS)
In this world are intelligent & dumb people,people with character mistakes & people with less of character mistakes......
They are not responsible that they are dumb!
Sin Studly is giving them "school" and they become angry! and because they can't make a defense on the Sin Studly's level they will make troll acounts and become spammers!They are little babies with a lot of time and they are pain in the ass! but I don't have problem with them...
He is not good example for people here.A lot of people are racist but he should keep it for yourself (ok...I hate gypsies but they are not killed with AK47 in my avatar)....
although he is funny & intelligent he should change his mind....and Sim too!She should forbid him racist avatar! ;)
They should use their intelligence to figure out what to do!They are very influential and well known persons and they should use own powers to change this situation...

What should we do?
1.Ignore them.
2.Sensitive attitude to newbies,dumb people....etc
3.Using ignore list.
4.Moderators should make their own work.Nothing less, nothing more!

Delete all their posts (every single one) instead of just locking some of their threads. If you erase everything they type, they'll stop out of frustration.

Banning is totally unnecessary if people do their jobs. It's a can of worms best left closed.

I tried this with the "ADMIN: please read post" last night, but he kept making new a new one, so I thought if I'd just lock them for now, maybe he'd just leave it at one, if it was still there. Apparantly not.

Right, I've already emailed you about this and there seems to have been no reply. So I'll post it here.

Moderators need the ability to ban, or at least suspend users. The sheer volume of idiots and the amount of time it takes to review each one means that we're not able to deal with them effectively. Give us the right to ban by collective consent or at least to suspend, please.

Thanks.

there are some problems with the ideas people are coming up with--the collective banning, the suspend a user, etc.

to the best of my knowledge operations like that are NOT supported by this bbs software and coding it, if it's even possible to modify vbulletin like that (i do not know in what form the software is distributed), is highly non-trivial.
