    Some people just should never be allowed to be a forum admin. To protect the identity of the biased and ban-happy,I will not disclose any details of said admin nor the forum that admin dominates.

    To the Forum Mods: I know you will probably lock/delete this thread...but would you just leave it up a couple of days? Also fyi...this is about a sad little off-site forum and does not reflect my feelings toward any Admin nor Mod in any area of Stratics.

    :) The Admin and Mods here know how to hold up the forum rules fairly...unlike some others.

    With this specific admin,you don't need to know how to break any rules. All you have to do is to ask for clarification on the rules to earn this admins wrath.

    Maybe. Don't really care. I really do think my thread title sums it up nicely though. The usual clique thing is happening there from what I have read.

    I've heard the same statement ("power corrupts") about guild masters. Some people don't seem to understand that doing such jobs has nothing to do with power. It is hard work, time consuming, often annoying, and it is a volontariy commitment to contribute to the community. Wherein lies the power in the first place? You don't get paid for it, and mostly you don't even get appreciation.

    The power lies in the ability to silence voices in the community for "circumventing" the rules while others break the same rules and nothing is done. Its not what rules are broken,its who breaks them(or doesn't break them really and gets banned anyway),is what matters to this off-site admin.

    I'll try and rephrase it to make it (hopefully) a little easier to understand.

    Arrrgh! The power be to silence the tongues of those who speak out against the Captain or attempt to mutiny.

    Hope that be of help to ye!

    Ok the short version. In that forum,if you are a good friend of the the admin,rules don't seem to apply. If you're not,the rules are whatever is convienant at the time.

    Yeah but the thing is,the only "mutiny attempt" was in the mind of the "captain".


    Example:
    [Crew Member]: "What are the rules for this ship?"​
    [Captain]: "Thar be a mutionous Traitor here! I'll keel haul ye! Arrr!"​

    I'd rather you kept the names of both the board and the parties involved off the board please. To allow it on here could be misconstrued.
