A letter to Danny, to be viewed by anyone who wishes.
I'm not flaming, I'm viewing my opinions. And I expect this not to be closed or deleted or moved to your nice little trash can.



Dear Danny. I don't like you. As a mod, you've broken the trust I'm supposed to have in you. You're not a good role model like a moderator should be. As far as I know, you got your position by kissing asses, while at heart you really are the little bigmouthed spammer. My personal opinion is that you have way too much powers, and you abuse them.

I reported a post. I got no vital signs after that, I didn't get a private message telling me there was no reason to do anything about it, and of course nothing was done about it. Not untill I had contacted an admin who did it. I am going to share my ideal process of reports.
1) A user reports a post.
2) Moderator reads it, takes actions
~ a) Does something himself
~ b) Gets help from an admin, if he can't do it himself.
~ c) Contacts the user who reported the post, with an explanation why nothing will be done about it.

Now I'm pretty sure most people agree with this being a nice procedure. But totally neglecting it, that's rather... rough. How was I to know that I didn't push "cancel" istead of "submit"? How was I to know that it didn't get lost on the way? With no reply or reactions at all, I send another report. Et cetera.

In an ideal world, an ideal forum, a good forum with good moderators, the source of reports aren't given up in public. But Daniel, I've had that happening twice with you. How does that incourage people to report posts they believe don't fit on a civilisized forum? It's like rowing up a bunch of suspects and forget to put the glass between the vitness and make him point. Not nice, is it?


I don't care if you don't like me. I don't like you, so it's great. But as a moderator, you shouldn't let that affect you when it comes to matters that have to do with the forums. That's just something kids do.

Are you just a kid, Danny boy?

This is provocative but by far not pointless.

You can tell quite easily that you didn't press 'cancel' by mistake, because after successfully submitting a report, you should be taken to a screen which reads something like "Thanks, your report has been submitted. Please wait, etc."

That's not really the point, Raffels. The point I'm trying to make is that I don't think Danny's not a decent moderator, and I should be able to air it without it getting deleted. And my name's not Puffin, it's Moli.

Oh, btw, "Your english sucks" isn't really a good line when making arguements. Especially when arguing with a person who has english as third language.

Expectation denied, and here is why:

You have publically decided to attack a crew-member who is just doing his job, saying that he is abusing his powers because he has a grudge against you. Every single action that Danny has ever performed is neatly listed in the mod forum (and in the forum's mod logs). As far as I can see, not one of those actions have been done maliciously.

If you have a problem with a crewmember, then inform an admin about it. The admin will then look into the matter, and if nessecary take the issue to Kosta. Do not try to bring personal problems out on the forum for everyone to see - especially when all you do is flame another member on this board.

This is a direct attack against Danny, and you do not supply any proof to back up these statements.

This is not proof that Danny has actually done anything wrong.

1. When you report a post, there is no cancel button, only a single submit button - so your second paragraph falls away in its entirety. Something you would've known if you tried to report a post, before making this public attack.

2. Your report is sent to an anonymous and random moderator of that forum. In 3xBlah, the mods are Danny, Havell and Swiss. How can you be so sure that Danny is the one who recieved your reports and chose not to act on it? I'll answer that for you. You can't. So there is no reason to attack Danny by name, is there?


As a result, this topic is completely useless, and only serves to openly flame a crew-member that you don't like. Something you do without any reasons to do so.

However, I will inform the mods to be more careful to let our members know that a report is being processed, as that is clearly a problem. And, that seems to be the thing that brings you the most frustration, but I can not overlook that you have broken our rules several times with this topic.

1. You have openly flamed another member.
2. You did not send this post as a PM to an admin to review the case, but went public with your personal problems regarding a crew-member.

As such, you have recieved a warn, and this topic is now closed.
