Regarding moderators warning user.

Nobody has it out for you and everyone else was warned for posting in that spam topic. As you've said, you've been here for a year now. You've had ample time to learn the rules and should know better that we do not tolerate spam around here.

Well well, even though i know there will be always someone protecting mods and trying to asslick. 

So some of the moderators apparently don't know how to warn people. Even i can do a better job as a moderator, in fact I'm one my self in other websites.
The problem is, I'm not always posting gifs or pics, just 1 or 2 everyday you can check my posts...I'm a serious member, sometimes having fun with stupid topics, that's normal. There are probably more users posting gifs/pics and even youtube videos, hey let's warn them all?

I don't care about post counts, I just like to read topics, that's why i join here for gta discussion.

And I know, posting a topic just because of warning might sound stupid but this is the 2nd time in just 1 week. 1 for posting a gif and this time posting a pic. You can see it on my profile.

 

I know warnings expire and you can also be auto temp-banned or perma banned from the forums.

For now I'm gonna try to avoid posting any meme or gifs, since I'm not allowed to post.

 

Heck it will be funny if i get a warning for posting this topic, apart from jokes. Let's be serious here.

 

Thank you for reading my topic.

Sorry everyone, I correct myself, it's just a reminder. well without points but still it's like a warning.

Indeed, I know this. But i wanted to tell people if they are curious and want to check the pic i posted and got warned for.

Thanks for the reply.

Try to reduce your spam image posting from once or twice a day to once or twice a month, please. Aint nobody got time for that.

Most forums don't allow spammy replies such as gifs or vacuous one word posts.  Most are willing to overlook it, but if you overdo it, they'll call you on it. At least they only warned you.

Well, if it's one thing I hate, it's hearing a member of our fine forums is being bullied by staff. I tell you this friends and neighbors, I simply will not put up with any of that going on. Oh I sure won't.

 

I did some deep research into your fine posts and came up with these replies.

 

"Haters gonna hate"

 

"hipster"

 

"free-roam...Free-roam..Umad?"

 

I grabbed those randomly from page three of your posts. Before your last infractions. You know? The ones that sounded unfair to you.

 

Now here comes honesty time. Many of your posts are spam/crap/waste of time/horrible/ I can go on...

 

Either contribute to a topic or don't post. You are proof the staff are not ZERO tolerance around here. You fully deserved your warnings and if you don't shape up now, more will follow.

Funny i stopped posting gifs, now another one warned me for replying to a topic. A guy posted "solo RP..." youtube video, I replied and told him to stop posting as we already seen many. AND i reported that topic, after some minutes i received a warning, guess who? The one above gnad1992 ^

 

What's next? Another warning for posting this reply too? Smh. I just don't get it.

 

 

Edit: http://gtaforums.com...w-dlc-march-23/

 

Go ahead Vanzant, warn them all. Did you warn them all? They replied to spam topic.

You were warned for posting in a spam topic which isn't necessary. Just report it and move on. 

 

And FYI, they were all warned as well.

Instead of asking us for an explanation, how about you give us an explanation for why you think the below post (what you got warned for) is in any way contributory to these forums?
 

batman is better than you.

ot, it's useless posting. It gets locked soon.


You got warned alongside everyone else who replied when they didn't have to. Spamming is against our rules, it is very simple to click Report, but it takes effort to Reply with a comment therefore you are doing it purposely after being warned in the past. You should know better.

I gotta be honest, if the majority of your posts consisted of something worthwhile then you'd probably be let off for posting somewhat 'spammy' posts once in a while, but when the majority of your posts are one sentence nothings without anything to say on the topic, then I can understand why a moderator would be more willing to hit that bright red flashy warn button.

Everyone should remember this. I do it everyday. I don't need to be the one telling the op their thread is pointless or spam. Unless they make me a led-by. :miranda:

 

And as I was a moderator on other boards before, this forum is very lenient on gifs, meme, and videos.

Ryan, I understand you have to protect your moderators friends.

I couldn't resist i tried to tell OP to stop posting the same topics about same "solo RP 4500"... I reported as well and that's for helping the forums to be clean. I received a medal.. 

Yes a warning, wow awesome, really cool.

 

I'm gonna take a break, I've been here nearly 1 year and suddenly moderators show up and ruin everything starting to warn all the time. Received 3 warnings in just 3 weeks now, I stopped posting gifs.

Hate me all you want, I'm telling the truth some of don't know how to warn. Be happy now mods..

Good boy, +1 cookie for you. Come here if you receive a warning in the future for no reason.

I think some mods just need to ease up a little. Maybe have sex with their girlfriend/boyfriend more often or something. 

But I do hate the ones that pretend they're Captain Hindsight and lock a thread because they don't think it will lead to a discussion that satisfies them.

Yes me too.  I have come across a few members who are ever such good friends with certain MODS and they think they also rule the forums.

Mods do a good job but to be honest I dont feel like contributing half of the time incase it gets locked or deleted without notice.

The whole some members are more special than others blatently has to stop.

I agree, ass-licking a mod works wonders for some.
