    Take it to OT this is a games forum, and this is too far off the topic.

    But we're unlikely to start a huge debate over LD's dental issues that will probably just devolve into an argument that the mods will have to lock anyway.

    Modding is one thing but when you start playing God and thinking you have an insight on what others will do and say before they actually do it then you have let your modding responsibility go way too far beyond your lil delusional head IMHO.

    Re: OT: pulled 4 wisdoms a few hrs ago

    I wasn't the one that touched your thread, and probably would've let it go a bit further myself, but that's not the point. Somebody else obviously didn't feel like the headache of moderating an OT thread, and I support them in their decision.

    I believe we'll let this one slide because its presence won't create additional work for us. If it starts to, it will either be locked, or the problem posts will be removed if they exist for no other purpose than to complain.

    Or maybe I'm just winging it, and know nothing about the other mods motivations.

    Re: OT: pulled 4 wisdoms a few hrs ago

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't mentioned anything about a thread being locked, that is against ROC. Are you perhaps playing God and trying to forsee my intentions and motives without me actually commiting the crime? Shame on you! Besides, I wasn't even aware that a thread was locked. What thread? Where?

    I never mentioned a thread that was locked.

    Stop trying to foresee my intentions and motives.

    Post about this again and I'll move this branch of conversation to its own thread, where it can be discussed on its own merits.

    It wasn't a threat, it was a statement. You posted, I moved. No harm, no foul.

    I was just saying that if you're gonna dance around words, dance around the correct words. I hadn't mentioned a locked thread, so you can't get technical about the locked thread I mentioned.

    Just for my own knowledge, what do you hope to accomplish from this line of discussion?

    You mean the conversation where you quoted the same thing I said three times in a row?

    I've changed the title. Does it now earn the Cheapy Stamp of Approval?

    Also, you did start this ridiculous thread. It just wasn't created in this thread.

    Umm... don't the mods work on a volunteer basis and therefore are not paid out of your $13/mos and therefore not subject to your paid whims? I hope that that was sarcasm... but either way... it made me laugh.

    I'd tip my hat to a mod making up a quote and changing the thread to make it seem as if a poster had said it, but it's bad manners to wear a hat indoors.
     
  24. Honesty is always a great example.

    *shrugs* I guess I just don't see an issue with the Mods. Some people are acting like their right to free speech is being trampled. I guess I'm just not a factor enough to lace my posts with explicatives and personal attacks.

    Nothing said here is of the utmost importance that if it disappears into the ether that the world is going to end.

    If you honestly thought that I perfectly matched Cheapie's posting style with my thread title, then I just don't know what to tell you. Except that maybe you should watch some Jeff Dunham to recognize the phrase.

    Also, look up the meaning of the word "Renamed".

    Oddly enough, it doesn't mean "To leave the title as intended by the original poster".

    Stratics has always been a bad forum. The rules are enforced textbook. One time I was perma-banned 2 years after receiving my 3 day penalty for a rule I broke. I assume someone felt inferior IRL and had to have a powertrip.

    Kelmo also has it out for me. I've received 5 or so infractions in the 3-4 month period that I played here last time. All of which were pretty much undeserved by any reasonable standards.

    It's too bad everyone can't migrate to a forum that doesn't suck.

    Probably my fifth stratics account.

    Saying that will probably get me another perma though, no?

    Naw. We all decided after the big Stratics crash we would take (almost) all folks back and let the new system sort 'em out.

    It's when he's just doing the stand-up portion of his act without any characters. The same bit where his daughter fills up for gas the first time.

    He makes the texting motion with his hands pretending to be his daughter, "My parents are soooo stupid, ell oh ell, etc."
     
  34. Sweeney

    Honestly the title doesn't match your posting style either, and oddly enough the title doesn't say "Renamed by Wulf2k." Ask any viewer of this forum before you started this post renaming game, most of us assume only the OP edits the title.

    QZ may have been joking but she pointed out the problem. You're putting a quote into someone's mouth that was never said. No mod has done this before and it's a bit worrying. Yes you admitted it, but not until many posts further down, and the broken train of threads due to the move makes it hard to follow.

    Cheapy may have had some tenuous claims, but he never once resorted to childish behavior such as name-calling against the mods or moving a Wulf thread and renaming the title to some kindergarten insult, making it seem as if Wulf wrote it. Even if he had the power to do so I doubt he would have.

    It's one thing to move threads or lock threads, but you're crossing the line when you put words in people's mouths.

    If you don't see anything wrong with that, then I don't know what to tell you.

    Oh? Well not knowing what your expectations are, I am equally ignorant in how I failed to meet them. However, since there are potentially as many expectations as there are human beings in the world, if I claimed to be able to meet them all, I'd be in politics, and I administer networks. :D

    Speaking of which, if you are unhappy with comments I have made on the tech forum recently...then be a little more specific preferably over on that forum, and perhaps someone else will have more insight, and I am always learning new things myself.

    so was everyone assuming cheapy created a thread and thought it would be funny to call it "Re: Renamed/moved..."? or which part of Re, renamed and/or moved is that insanely hard to understand?
     
  37. Sweeney

    Sweeney Guest

    I don't have a problem with the renaming, but what it was renamed to. It's a petty thing to do. We shouldn't have to memorize posting styles in order to know who said what. We should be able to take things on face value, that if a thread with Cheapy as the OP says X, then Cheapy named it X unless the title says otherwise.

    Giving the thread a childish title is jumping the shark in the debate, makes it look as if Cheapy is only making gradeschool insults (he wasn't), and weakens Cheapy's argument.

    Wulf could have done much better by keeping the higher ground, instead he went lower than Cheapy.

    You keep speaking of a debate. Up to the point that I moved it, had anything been stimulating you on an intellectual level?

    This could have been an interesting debate, but wasn't followed up on.

    Had the seeds of a possible debate, but was shrouded in the gradeschool insults he wasn't making.

    Here he's just randomly clutching at the technicality that he hasn't mentioned a locked thread. Good for him. I hadn't technically mentioned a locked thread either.

    In conclusion, you got your chocolate in my peanut butter.

    And you still resorted to making him look childish. You would have been fine letting himself do that.

    You've only justified the move, not the fact that anyone who glances at page one sees that Cheapy called the mods stupid, as if that's the only point of argument he had. In fact he never made that point, and you as a mod are making things up to support your view.

    The renaming did nothing in line with the role of a moderator, and appears quite personal.

    Fair enough.

    I had to give it a new name, I made something up. I didn't expect anybody to believe those were Cheapie's words with the way I phrased it, but I'll be more explicit in the future.

    All i'm going to say, these are forums guys, come on. One of probably 10 different forums I check on a regular basis. There are far more important things in life than arguing what can/can not be done, or what should/should not be done in these or any forums.

    I know people ***** about stratics having Nazi moderators, but it's almost as if we have Nazi posters. If you don't like something, suck it up and move on.
