I was hanging out in another forum for a long time..
and without judging the mods here, i guess it's kinda normal they have their dictatirship times, always hated it too. But as i tried ti fight it, they just kicked me out of the forum for a while. so theirs no chance to argue i guess. power is always gonna be missused :D

To these posts, I agree. Think about it like this -- the band, their families, people who work with them, they can all view the forums if they like, and does it really help make this community a better place to have an entire thread filled with page after page of "They're too fat" "They're old" "Dexter is totes balding"? I understand not having much else to talk about, but we need to try and keep this place a little more positive. Of course everyone is free to criticise the band. But let's not open it up into a major bitchfest.

Ever consider people are telling them to be extra harsh right now because the album is coming out?

The board's traffic is getting much, much heavier now that we're close to the album and it's getting heavier all the time. This means, apparently, more trolls, more disruptive behavior, and more work for the moderators. But we do it because we want this place to be awesome. I think a lot of people just got used to it being a sleepy little place where not a whole lot happened so everyone just pretty much did whatever the hell they wanted with little fear of repercussions. Things are a bit different now.

As i'm in the team that owns Russian The Offspring Portal i should tell you that after we had more than 1,000 people registered in our forum it's a great job to clean all the shit that lamers do and it's totally hard to stop the offtops and flood in forums, so CLOSing is right decision even sometimes it may be rude.

Only thing I can add, is that I prefer closing topics over deleting them (except when they are like: download rafrag here and there). Because if you delete them then the next day a person that wasn't here goes "hey I found something new which isn't posted yet" and the shit starts over.

Once I was surprised to see my postcount decreased by 10 posts. Guess they were all wiped off the face of the forum.

wow we're still talking about this?

What difference does it make if she closed it or not? It was deemed necessary to close and thats sort of it. There has been a lot of bitching going on that has actually been let go so don't start up with the we can only say cheery stuff.. you want to argue that they're sometimes harsh fine, but you've all made your comments the mods have responded why are we repeating ourselves? Get over it.

One of the issues that the moderators as a whole have to deal with is that we're being pulled at by two different constituencies. On one hand, this is owned and operated by the band and its management. On the other, this is a place for its fans. And within the fans, there is the individual that wishes to do whatever he or she wants, whatever he or she feels like, and then there is the broader community that has to put up with his or her bullshit. We attempt to straddle the line between those two desires, knowing that, sometimes, pleasing one means pissing off the other (and that, of our options, it's probably best to err on the side of not pissing off the band).

Though I may joke about it, I'm quite relieved to have a quiet forum in which to reign, as it greatly cuts down on the tough decisions I have to make. I personally don't think I could deal with overseeing a forum of this size with only one other person and balancing it out with living a life. I'm not going to personally vouch for all the decisions that Tijs and LM'65 make as I don't hang around the forum enough to be familiar with every last one of them, but I can certainly vouch for their wisdom and good temperaments, especially under a high workload and often hostile working conditions. They might not always - in fact, given the two different groups they're trying to please, they will not always - make decisions that leave everyone happy, but that does not mean that anything about the way the board operates is changing, or that we're all aboard a slow boat to fascism.

What it can lead to, however, is more people attempting to test the limits once they discover them, more people that get themselves riled up and want to see how far they go, which in turn leads to the limits (flaming, NSFW pictures, pointless necroposting, etc.) become more and more relevant. Yes, big shock, you can "go too far" on this forum, especially if you try so hard, but the edges of acceptability aren't an issue, generally, unless you're trying to find them. And decisions made are neither final nor indicators of sweeping new policies - if you have a problem, sending a PM to a moderator or attempting to reason with them/us is just as likely to work - hell, perhaps even more so - than reacting with shock, outrage or anger, not to mention better on your blood pressure. Yes Virginia, this is a dictatorship, but it's a pretty damned benevolent one. No point in getting all irate and needlessly activist just for activisms sake and making us go all Tiananmen Square on your asses (just so we're clear, I only have a couple people in mind when I say this).

Standard disclaimer - the words and views expressed in this post are not necessarily those of the band, the forum or the moderators as a whole. Terms and conditions apply.


MB, you can have it. Shall I move it?Nah, I just like whining. I know my forum is a bit of a death sentence for a relevant thread, and since this does apparently deal with modding issues regarding discussing the band itself, it's probably better off here. If anything gets too off-topic, however, you know where to send it.

I made a post here and it got deleted (it talked about how little miss would influence the other mods to maybe become like her (aka evil))
Then I made a post here highlighting the fact that my other post got deleted, and that this bbs was becoming like a communist regime where the ruling force decided what was viewed and what wasn't. This post also got deleted.

I'm making this post to simply inform you of these two deleted posts. I don't know if this post will be deleted too, but I assume it will. To those who manage to read it, good job. (There really isn't any reason for this to be deleted considering some people even called the mods "whores" and their posts weren't deleted (which wasn't necessarily a bad thing but kind of unfair that all my posts get deleted nowadays). I hope you feel guilt when you delete this, mods!

No, just the people who feel personally slighted for whatever immature reason. I think moderating all the stuff that goes on here is ridiculously hard and whether I agree with the decision or not you have to respect that they're voluntarily doing a job. I think they're doing a damned fine one at that


noooo...they should kill us....

you're not making any sense any more...A lot of people have had threads closed or deleted and you should think of it this way, at least you're being allowed to continually bash the mods because you feel personally slighted... so don't make it seem like all we can say is oh we love so and so...

and finally - we should all read MotaBoy's post and try not to pick it apart but look at it objectively

I understand not having much else to talk about, but we need to try and keep this place a little more positive.

for reals. the album is out in 12 days (at least for me), and I have noticed there being nothing to talk about, so just go away from the forums for a few days, come back when the album is out, and there will be somthing to talk about.

and if you decide to stay, just talk about something productive. it doesnt even have to be about the offspring, try general chat.

Little mrs seems like a good person, we've had some fun discussions back in the day (when she was starting to lose one she made a post with a bunch of comebacks then said "let sleeping arguments lie" or something, I found that kind of cute). Personally, I'd do her, she's making the forum more interesting with all this controversy, plus she has a cool tattoo.

I support sneedo though, he isn't an idiot, if you've seen any of his posts you'd know that he's a really awesome person, and smart too. He's right about a lot of things, and he dislikes authority, which isn't very surprising (offspring is a punk band, remember?). I'd say about 20% of the forum members here share this anti-authoritarian mentality, me included, sneedo just had the most balls out of any of us with his direct remark.

If I remember right, he's older than me and still has the tru-punx "let's fuck the system by inconveniencing people in a volunteer position put in place to keep the peace" mentality of a 14 year old. No offense to any 14 year olds here.

I don't see the relevance of your statement. Obviously, most 14 year olds
don't have such an opinion, and secondly there's no age to be punk. A lot of things in our system aren't working out, and we are basically still the same as we've always been. As a race, we're doing nothing to improve our overall behavior, instead focusing on improving our knowledge. Instead of watching gladiator matches, we now watch boxing matches on television or people fighting on youtube. We think of ourselves as more refined when we really aren't. We seriously need to reconsider our whole priorities and values in this society where we'd rather ignore all the wars and problems around the globe as long as we can continue living cozily in our homes. Ignorance is bliss after all.

Conclusion: Punk is not something for 14 year olds, in fact it's quite the contrary, 14 year olds such as yourself fail to understand its true meaning and only look at the superficial elements of punk mentality.

According to this (http://www.nothingboard.com/index.php?topic=1184.0), you do this all because you hate being censored, not because she's overstepping her boundaries as a moderator.

It's not, and it's not like having someone delete your post is the same as a totalitarian government taking control of the airwaves.

This is silly. The Mods have been doing a good job as long as I've been here. If you don't like it, go start your own forum and do as you like. No one's stopping you.

Thread about what you dislike about The Offspring is made.
Thread above is closed.
This thread is made, discussing why above thread is closed.
This thread turns into a major bitchfest featuring bashing of mods and anarchy.
Everyone yells at everyone.
