I like a lot about this forum, especially the size and most of you people, however this forum is just too poorly modded. There are more forums than there are posts. Mods edit peoples' posts without hesitation, for stupid things like grammar or, even worse, to change the content. Certain topics (religion) are off limits. I say I don't like my title, and instead of a change, I'm argued with. Having to deal with this shit is just too much. Moderators should let a forum go naturally, only wielding their authority to prevent trolling and to keep things running smoothly. Instead, Mage and Ed take every opportunity they get to brandish their mod sticks. Well done, you ruined a good thing.


Seems pretty stable to me!

I honestly think we're a little too generous most of the time. I almost never ban people and Ed usually reserves it for genuinely problematic people (ex. Roman Cilicia). I think we could ban more people but I'm usually lenient because there are not a ton of posts anyway so I feel like we can let a lot slide. I'm not saying that I actually want to ban more people but I think it's a stretch to say that we're abusing our power, never mind the fact that moderating a small forum with less than 20 regulars is not exactly what I'd call "power".

also, notice that no one who got banned gives a shit but you do

I used to get upset over unjust bans, but now I like to think of them as a sort of weather condition. It'll happen no matter how much I pray to Zeus and sooner or later my house is going to get struck by lightning.

e: I know houses don't get struck by lightning. Deal with it.

This, I think, is the crux of it. We all went into it eyes open and fully aware of the consequences of an absurd derail over privilege in a thread about the atmospheric conditions in your corner of the world. If the probations had happened during a thread expressly created for exploring the concept and consequences of oppression then there would be cause for complaint but as it stands there is absolutely no reason to be so irrationally upset over something that does not matter.

Ed thinks she is acting irrationally because she is a woman.

If it had been just this thread. But it's not. It has been not even possible to post in the top trumps thread recently because you threatened to ban (probate) people. Given the last months there was no way to know how serious or not it was.

Look at the thread with the ban times. Always getting higher and higher. That's what I mean.

I'm not really sure what your motivation is here.
You hold up this 'injustice'. People simply don't agree. You've done this multiple times.
I just don't understand what your goal is.

Is the PG-13 rule here serious? Cuz we've all seen plenty of R-rated SMBCs, and I've seen plenty of R-or-worse-rated reactions to SMBCs in these forums.

The rule says "Keep it PG-13, Fuckers".

So it's safe to say it's a guideline at best. Just don't go overboard.

EDIT: hahaha we still have the "Do not bypass a mod" rule
