That might give it away though.

Here's a hint though: Its not Raavi, Kirsty or WBaker. Not anyone in this thread actually.

Just say who it is. I doubt they are going to ban you because you dont like a person.

 

For example me and Girish aren't exactly friends  I dont hate the guy, but I dont like him either.

I don't know why anyone would have anything against moonshield and Sivispacem unless criminal level stupidity is their crime. As a matter of fact I can't say I've seen either of them out of turn in their moderating duties at all, they seem pretty lenient comparatively.

Ok, I'm kinda pissed at Moonshield because he gave me a warning a couple of days ago but sivispacem?

Everybody has different personalities and we aren't all going to like each other at times. Just human nature.

Oh, and now i suddenly see i have a 4* going on with my profile. Am i guessing that this thread has something to do with it? Can't imagine how as i've been polite and not resorted to petty name calling or random insults


The stars are a rating that members set. More stars is a good thing.

 

My star rating dropped from 4 stars to 2 because I said to some guy that I thought his belief that f*cking kids was okay was not cool, so I wouldn't go as far as to say that is necessarily the case.

 

Who was you talking to? Jimmy Saville ? hahaha

 

I don't remember and wouldn't like to guess in case it was the wrong guy.

 

hahaha probably best, bud

If one of the admins has an aneurysm or decides to have one really messed up April Fool's joke and I find myself with moderating powers, I will genuinely give you people something to complain about.

 

No bannings, but boy oh boy your accounts will never be the same again.

I still stand by what i said about certain mods and their way of dealing with things. It's only really one two, but not gonna name and shame. Rather them than me being a mod as it's hard enough keeping things civil around here. Spoken to a few over PM's and they've always been helpful with what i asked

 

Still, maybe those i'm talking about should chill out slightly and not try winding people up any more with the way they close threads. It's not the locking or removing of the threads that's the issue, it's the way they choose to do it

Moonshield not trigger happy? from an expired warning I got from him "Say this kind of sh*t again and you're gone. Only warning."

to a thread that was deleted out. Well thanks a lot buddy here is my finger to you too. No explanation, no way for me to even see the post I supposed to have made that was so offensive. When I moderate on my other boards and I have to give a warning I copy the post so that when I delete it they have a way to defend themselves if they think they think I am wrong. Never curse at the person either.

 

The only other warning I have ever got was from Spuds. He did it the right way. " This is a group reminder about flaming/antagonizing members-- don't do it...

Now the post I made at the time I was being silly. The thread turned into a flame fest later so I got burned with the rest. No big deal.

This is what got locked.
 

....i constantly get voted out of lobbies because ppl can literally not kill me.
 
Next person end the sentence, and so on.
 
Seriously though, it's so sad, I got kicked from the lobby by a level 1000 because he couldn't handle me.  What a joke.  LoL.


You made a thread to write you can't be killed and someone kicked you. There isn't much to discuss.

 

Not against you OP, I got problems as well but that topic you posted isn't really great. I've seen similar.

  
Now talking about closing threads. why don't moderators lock these "appreciation" topics for every vehicle or people when asking "which vehicle should i select?".

It's similar to "show-off your vehicles"

Lock this thread why?? 

People are having a civil discussion which isn't turning into random insults being thrown about. Kinda makes a change, don't you think?

This pretty much sums up what i've been saying. There's a right way to do things and a wrong way. Both those examples show that very clearly, and not sure i would have kept quiet if i had received the first of your messages.

The staff has been discussing the appreciation threads recently but no plan of action, if any, has yet been finalized.

As far as the "which vehicle" threads I never really thought of them as a problem.

You have a grudge against me because I asked you to remove a three megabyte gif image from your signature? Which you still haven't done, by the way. Its okay, done it now.

You are aware that hiding it in spoiler tags means it's still rendered by the browser?

I've asker before, I'll ask again. Get it under a meg and then I might let you keep it. Maximum 3G data charges in the UK are 40p per megabyte, how about we start invoicing you £1.20 every time we see one of your posts?
