Soooo....it's now been an extremely long time...are the mods letting the people who were banned back or not? This is a message board, not a court of law, I don't see why this decision should take so long. Hell, by this point I'd rather just know for sure that they AREN'T coming back.

Dude, it's a message board. You sound like you're some government agent with that last comment. And anyway, I was told I'd be allowed to know what happens.

It hasn't been a month yet and we told you we would revisit it after a month. Should be plenty of time for you to come up with yet another paranoid conspiracy theory.

That's a ridiculous amount of time in my opinion, and you never gave me an amount of time.

Also, why is it the same amount of time for everyone? I don't think they were all on exactly the same level as far as rule violations go.

It's not the same amount of time for everyone. Just seemed like a nice round number. Last time, Bipolar knew after a couple weeks when he would be allowed back. But hey, after all, this isn't a court of law.

Bipolar Bear and I had been talking and he has already been made aware of when to contact the moderators again. He seems completely fine with our decision, so I don't see why it's an issue to you.

No it's not a court of law. So we can pretty much do whatever we want with regards to enforcing the rules. And it's not like a ban is particularly painful. Especially a temporary one. Maybe you know, if he respected the rules like everyone else does we might care more.

No. No. No.

No I do not see seriousness becoming a problem. If fact, I find it to be as joyful as watching Phelps win his 8th medal, or eating a bowl of Cap'n Crunch in the morning.

I'm perfectly happy that that group of people wore out their welcome and am hoping that bighead grows some balls and tries something to get himself banned.

Up the punx.

I dunno, I think having stupid porn and feces pictures and anti-authority clichés in every thread was pretty repetitive in its own right.

If you want to avoid this, you should probably not go to a punk rock band's web forum.

I'd rather let the band decide what that solution is. And they already did.


....just bring them baaaaaaaaaaaaaack....!!!!

Very compelling argument.

Suggestion: keep in touch with them via IM/e-mail/etc.

No one here wants to board to be nothing but serious, but there is a line that needs to be drawn between fun and taking it too far to the point where a board becomes out of control. I think the board has a lot of weird, funny threads. If the board were as strict as you said, I would not have been able to make a thread about sex toys earlier today.

And yes, message boards can get out of control. The original Green Day board got shut down by the band's management because the moderator stopped doing his job and the board turned into nothing but people posting goatse or shemales in every thread that they didn't like.

when that person makes plenty of stupid emo threads everyone dislikes....and when all the other threads are about your fav this or that/general chat...and when there is no news and when there are always 6 persons on at the same time and when only two of them actually post something and when you find out that those two persons are actually mods......then it is a little tragedy....

Shanna, you don't like those threads. You don't speak for everyone.

I'd like to see more posting on the forums too but I don't think we're going to see more until there's more touring going on. And that certainly has nothing to do with any of the new members.

A matter of taste that you apparently lack. Sad.

I've never listened to that band.

Stupidity irritates me. Bigheads posts are usually riddled with it. There is being funny and being stupid. JohnnyNem, Jakebert, That_guy 91, Endy, etc are all funny. Bipolar, Bighead, 6661, and Cock Joke are all lame attempts at humor.

Aggressive discussion? You've missed out on the Russia threads in Politics then. And saying that there are no jobs for mods? Please. Shoe salesmen love this place.

No, Shanna. It's fine to wish the world was more to your personal liking, but it's totally another thing to expect that other people should want to kowtow to that view.

It's not okay to make someone feel like they're the second coming of the third Reich for liking a band. Period.

Taste is irrelevant. We have a set of rules that are very easy to follow. I mean all you got to do is not post pictures of shit and pornography. I know it's tempting. I fight the urge every second. Sometimes I need to go to my balcony and have a cigarette because of the stress of not posting shit and feces, but I get through it. Day by day. Unfortunately Bipolar and Cock joke cracked under the pressure, and well it wasn't the first time they broke the rules.

Or the second.

Or the third.

In fact I would be willing to bet it wasn't even the 4th or 5th time.

You mean two threads. Two. One of them everyone liked, actually.

Also, what JN said is something to take to heart.

I think it's pretty safe to say that that isn't the best place to post something if you're going to act like everyone should know about that message.

JohnnyNemesis
08-26-2008, 11:13 AM
That's true, but the point is that you were making antagonistic and sarcastic comments without knowing what you were talking about, so maybe it's a good idea to stop acting like such a know-it-all? I mean, whether you should have known or not, you were still wrong.

You don't have to tell me that. I figured that out when you asked me if I eat lead paint for not knowing it.

So what's going on with the rest of the banned guys? It was my understanding that the mods would "revisit the case" after a month. Is this happening, and if so, when exactly?

wheelchairman
08-28-2008, 11:30 AM
We rolled dices. One dice per mod. If the majority of dices were even numbers they would be unbanned, if they were odd they would have to wait 3 more months until winter.

I'm afraid the results don't look too good. :/

But we're just trying to be fair here. This was the most unbiased way we could think of. So let it be known that we are not the cruel and oppressive dictators you think of us. We're much cooler dictators, like those guys in China, not like those guys in North Korea. Think of us as your trusted Politburo.

I think the only one bitter as it relates to the "intellectual community" is you.

Seriously, it's like you've created some sort of intellectual boogie monster (I picture a shadowy figure with a monacle and The Communist Manifesto in his hand) that you've allowed to control your emotions, and it's really sad to watch.

wheelchairman

How is that current events? They've been communist since before you were born.... o.O

Well I mean you'd know that if you read a book once in a while, or an newspaper...or even the evening news. Hell if you glanced at the headlines on newspaper stands as you walked by you might notice.

How do you not know this?

Anyways it's not bitterness so much (why would I be bitter? I'm not the one banned) I'd call it mild irritation. You're just kinda annoying. We don't constantly discuss Bipolar bear because there isn't that much to discuss, contrary to what you might believe.

Endymion
08-31-2008, 02:21 AM
what bighead meant was are you informed of it every time you get a strike against you which could lead to a banning. clearly a warning implies notification, but a strike on your record does not. no need to get on his case about it.

Whatever. You didn't PM me about that like you were supposed to, and it was the most ridiculous warning ever. I was just being honest about what I was occasionally guilty of, instead of being pathetic and lying to myself about it like the baiting, flaming, trolling, "1337".

Come to think of it, that WASN'T the most ridiculous warning ever. The time when I got warned for jokingly "threatening" another member was. How anyone can sit there and actually think that the administrator had that in mind when that rule was created is beyond me. To be honest, if I feel like it, I might message the administrator about that one, because it was so goddamn petty and ridiculous. But you're just "doing your job", much like a cop is just "doing his job" by giving someone a ticket for going 1 mph over the speed limit.

You know it's true, but try to talk your way out of it.

bighead384
08-31-2008, 01:27 PM
Keep trolling me. Do it. I dare you.

If we're going to completely ignore context and intent like you had to do to warn me for jokingly "threatening" another member, shouldn't this get you a warning for trolling? According to wikipedia's definition for trolling, I think it should.
