    Default Deja Vu

    I've recently stumbled upon an anonymous online forum, where new people got power, so they banned fun and everyone hated it.

    TBH, I've been here for quite a few mod changes and have never seen such dismay and user uproar as I have this time.

    If any admins are actually reading this and care to take a point I'm making knowing me to not only be a troll, but someone with some actual insight every here and there, that would be the sentiment to take away from this transition.

    I would ask who got banned for "fun," but discussing bans is against the rules.

    I do think things got out of hand in T&P.

    I remember a time when rule enforcement was considerably stricter than it was until recently.

    So punish everone for lack of moderation. What does moderation mean? Why come here with inexperianced mods and lower the boom. Remember failcake, shaynayney and others. All promised they were going to be good mods, then just failed like all before. In a place where opinions and feelings are dicussed and curant culture, I think a certain amount of leeway needs be availble for it work. Protecting babies who know darn well they are making themselves targets do not help anything nor them.

    Case in point, mods. This kid claims to have graduated from Ivy League colleges and still can't read.

    How do you expect people to leave this kid alone, this kid who can't tell the difference between banning for fun and banning fun.

    Pointing out his dumbiosity can only serve to help him in the real world by either teaching him not to brag about his supposedly superior schooling when he can't comprehend a simple sentence or just to keep his mouth shut and not prove what people are already thinking about him.

    I agree with what this post appears to be saying. I think that mods understand this.

    It's 'cause Nichts is Canadian and I'm Britlander. Though I tried to make up for it with my messings with the rep system.

    On a srs note, this is probably because T&P in particularly has had a big mod change. I've not seen it before where it goes from 3 mods who've been doing T&P forever to having 2 new ones almost immediately. Things were always going to go tits up for a bit.

    People need time to adjust.

    One of the many flaws of being human.

    Issue 1 with the new mod appointments: you should ONLY ever hire modbots. None of this human crap.

    I would like to sign this petition. If everyone donates one pikachu, I believe we could make it happen.
