    Why exactly are these forums in existence if whenever somebody offers a counter-opinion to the Mod's liking, they go out of their way to find some reason to lock the thread and or ban the poster because they just can't accept the fact that somebody is arguing against their beliefs. This is the most ridiculously moderated forum I've ever seen...it is censored beyond belief and does not even allow people to openly talk about scripting, something that has been in UO for at least 6-7 years now. Seriously people, grow up already this is 2010 not 1984.

    IBTL or the move to rants, whichever comes first!


    Good luck on your quest.

    The UHall front page is full of scripting discussions, how can you say we don't allow you to openly discuss it? I assume you had a post removed because you went too far and mentioned a script name or accused someone?
     
  4. Gosh, maybe you should start your own forum so you can moderate it as you wish?:)

    Seriously, you can talk just about anything you want as long as you don't' mention program names or discuss the technique on how to do something that isn't allowed by the TOS. You also agreed to abide by those rules, which you should have read, when you signed up for the Stratics boards.

    What exactly and what more are you looking for?

    The post i made was in the "My Idea to Deal With Cheaters" thread and was locked because apparently I was "promoting the use of 3rd party programs". Not once did I mention a 3rd party program anywhere in my post.

    I agree sometimes.

    They seem to randomly delete posts that aren't even that bad.. but let a lot of other stuff go. But, this is the only option for UO, so.. What ya gonna do?
     
  9. You weren't the only poster in that thread. Besides, Magdalene's message was very clear to me why it was locked.

    I hope you realize 1984 was a reference to a novel...anyway Old Man Of UO, the reason it is clear to you that it was locked is due to the fact it goes against what you believe. We all know your against <insert one of a thousand "cheating" options here,> the point is I am entitled to my opinion and threads should not simply be locked because the mod does not agree. There was absolutely no reason to lock that thread.

    funny thing is just last nite i was thinking about making a thread asking if anyone knows of a forum i can go to, to be able to post and read post from others that IS NOT MODERATED so we can all get a none biased and fair opinions of others and speak our minds with out fair of a BAN or post deletion.

    imo stratics is the "care bear" of forums they seek to protect the UO team and in doing so leads to bad decisions from the team which leads to lost of players.

    thank for your help

    The real reason UO is dying is because trammy mods have the power to regulate what the devs do and do not hear with regard to public opinion. It is quite pathetic.

    Now you're talking! The movies were good, but the music was better!
     
  16. I just Role Play an anti-cheater in UO. In Real Life, you and I would be best of buds. I like to steal cookies from Girl Scouts, fudge my taxes, trip little old ladies crossing the street, and I drink straight from the milk carton.

    Want a hug, Bud? :grouphug:

    Double Bonus: You have directly questioned the mods multiple times in this thread, which is itself against the rules. Enjoy your ban, I guess.
     
  18. There are several forums like that. One just must look outside the box.
     


  19. LOL. This ^^^
