How about instead of creating a thread that.. quite frankly doesn't need to be here, you PM the mod/admin who warned you?
Hey Polish Trucker. How about instead of making an irrelevant comment that... quite frankly is a little idiotic, you actually read what was posted? The moderator in question said and I quote, "Please use the network support forum."
Reading things before making comments on them is a magical skill.
I would also like to voice some concerns.
I received the exact same warning for this:
Just to add to what Lazy said, I don't believe that gang members should be led bys. Look at the latest exchange of words. Instead of being objective and saying, "Damned shut up. DDZN shut up," the moderator in question added his two cents in favour of his gang. Not a very good system we have here. Meh, can't help but feel that the multiplayer scene is dying around here. Just a quiet, peaceful death.
I wasn't hostile, I didn't break any rules, I didn't insult anyone. All I did was make an honest criticism. Is free speech banned here? Is this a police state? It certainly seems like it now.
Anyway I'd like to bring into question the integrity of a system where a member of a gang can have power within the gang section. Am I allowed to name names or will that get me another warning? Whatever, the two led bys in question are AndyGanteks and docrikowski.
Now with AndyGanteks, he will delete almost every post by a Damned member in the Yardies' topic. At times, I admit, it's an appropriate action. However, many times there is no logical reason as to why a post was deleted. No explanation is ever given. In one instance I made a post in the Yardies' topic complimenting one of their members on his member title. I haven't been banned from posting there. There was nothing questionable about the post. It was just a genuine friendly gesture. The post was deleted within 2 minutes. This was not the first time that this has happened, in fact, I have a good number of screenshots of legitimate posts that were later deleted by AndyGanteks. I was so sure that they would be deleted (out of spite, purely) that I took screenshots so that I could bring the issue up at a later date if I wished. As I suspected many of the comments were deleted. If you would like to see these screenshots I will happily upload them.
Now while our posts are deleted in their Topic, Yardies are seemingly free to post whatever they want in ours. I recall one occasion where Yardies' members swarmed into our topic and posted 1+ page of spam. Were these posts deleted? No, they were not.
This is one example of a led by using his power in a biased manner.
The issue with docrikowski happened just a few days ago. My complaint here is that instead of doing what a good moderator should do and be objective as he nips the trouble in the bud, he chose to add his two cents as a DDZN member which did nothing but further incite us to continue making comments about them. If a moderator is not going to set the example and, instead, get involved in the petty spat, what does that say to us regular members? I admit that it was a comment by my gang that started the exchange of words, but that's not the point. A moderator should end the exchange of words rather than contribute to it.
This is another example of questionable behaviour by a led by who is also a member of a gang.
My suggestion is this: If you're not going to make one member from every gang a led by, don't make any gang member a led by. Allow moderators from the other sub-forums to control the peace in the gang forum, they're more likely to be impartial. If you're really impressed by a gang member and want to give him a position of authority, do so in another sub-forum. The GTAO sub-forum, the GTA V sub-forum, whatever. It takes a very brave man to stand up to his friends. The current led bys in the gang section don't have what it takes.
