Yesterday I made a post that I didn't see as flaming. Yet an admin thought so. I've asked people, and many of them share my opinion. Who is able to decide what's going on inside of somebody's mind? It might look like flaming, but perhaps if you read closer and stop being narrow-minded and try not to decide in advance, you might notice that it's actually just constructive critisism. Or whatever.[/b]
That, precisely, is why the forum is a dictatorship. Your post did contain flame, and your multitude of reports filed to the mods of this forum is worth a warn increase just for wasting their time.
Or do you want me to quote their content, so that everyone can see what is your opinion of mods here? Given that a report is sent to every mod of the given forum, you have spammed and attacked all of them, not just Danny.

So finally you're showing your true side. Congrats, Puffin. *clap* *clap*

I have _never_ allowed _anyone_ to access my accounts on _any_ forum. Implying I might have done that is at the very least insulting.

On other hand, Sebatianos has used Rainwife's account several times, plus Rainwife has openly announced she was leaving the forum. Therefore, the probability that it is Sebastianos circumventing his restrictions again is much higher than this actually being Rainwife returning to the forum.

The thing is as far as I can see, that if it's a problem between two people they should try to solve it between themselves, there's E-mail, instant messaging and whatever, before creating "incidental" topics.
Although such topics are interesting to read. *grabs popcorn*

I sent that mod several times because I wanted something done about it.

I'm showing my true side? The hell do you think you know about me? And stop calling me Puffin, Ponyman. It's not my name.

Okay, good for you I haven't, either. Are you going to report me for asking this?

It's also possible that he decided not to do those mistakes again. And that he and rainwife were talking about this and she decided to return to participate in this discussion. And you accusing him of using her account without having proofs could be looked at as flaming and insulting, right? Sorry, I'm trying to figure out what people here consider flaming. I must be awfully wrong. It's just that most other forums I've ever been to are fairer than this one

Unless you've seen around 12 internet dramas already... <_<

On topic (although it's probably fairly pointless, at this stage):

Disclaimer: Having modded a couple of "difficult" boards myself, I tend to side with admins and mods on these issues.

Polling people for thread locking, bannings, assorted administravia doesn't work. Saw one board try it, it's closed. Saw another board try be "democratic" by allowing moderator elections: closed. If people are determined to complain about a board incessantly, they usually do, regardless of what they're given.
Whilst boards that operate somehwhere between dictatorship and representative oligarchy (like this one) just deal with these people and keep going.
That said, locking a thread doesn't need to be the be all and end all of it's existence. You can have the mod/admin whatever who's online lock a questionable thread, and then discuss it (and possibly re-open it) with the other staff members, so all points of view within the board administration are accounted for.

Nine reports. Su-ure. PM function was too difficult to use to ask why no action was taken or something?

You say you wanted something done about it. That is why one of your reports said "You evil son of a bitch" as the reason for report, correct? There were also two others - one where you told the mods that they suck and should die, and second where you told them to *meep* themselves.

Not a particularly good idea for grabbing a mods' attention, if that really was your intention. The staff are not particularly interested that your name is George, even if you send it to them through a report form.

Did you report me for asking "Rainwife" about this? Do unto others like you would have them do unto yourself.

The likeliness of that being the case is marginal.

Accusing or asking to which one I am talking to? In the past Sebatianos admitted to using Rainwife's account to post on the forums multiple times after being confined to Dissidents forum. Rainwife said she was leaving for good. No posts were made from her account until now, and that particular post is trolling on the admins. This isn't matching to Rainwife's posting habits and patterns, but completely to those of Seb.
Therefore I wanted to know who was I actually replying to.

Look at the top of this post. I already did that.

Really? I always thought it was quite a girly sport. Well, a handy excuse for girls to beat up each other during PE, anyway.

I'm an admin at my countrie's biggest forum. There have been attempts to find out how many regulars there are, but as far as I know nothing came out of that.
Since I joined that forum some years ago, I've noticed less than 10 threads that I can remember being locked. We're talking about a forum with over 100.000 users. When something comes up, replies are cencored (with a PM sent to the poster, explaining why). Admins arent' shy in sending private messages and warning people, and in the admin forum there are discussions about everything that's not going as it should. If people break the rules repetedly, they get banned.
Users discuss matters. If people are unhappy with an admin, its discussed both between normal users and admins. And it's solved.

Somebody tell me why there have to be more closed threads on this forum than on that?

You say you saw less then ten threads bein locked. Very well, how many were deleted?

These are two different forums, governed by two different crews who operate in their own methods which do not have to be identical.

If you cannot accept that, remember that being a member of Abandonia's community is not obligatory. You don't have to stay here, if you do not want to.
