Title: Get a fair admin..
Post by: §ôµÏG®ïñD on November 29, 2003, 12:55:15 AM
how bout getting a fair admin, that doesn\'t close threads when he gets owned because he posts something thats old etc.
Other members do the same thing and have to take it.  ;) and from admins too. I also bet this certain admin will close or delete this thread.. typical...

Oh yea - and I agree. It\'s \'bout time I got promoted.

Yeah Titan, you take over, then we can all give you grief.

Whatever the forum, the admin is bound to get stick from time to time, it\'s all part and parcel of being in the position.

What\'s the fasincation with being a moderation? I was here years before I ever became one and I never asked to be one. It\'s no big deal.

As for there being open spots , well, there isn\'t. At one time, I would agree, due to the fact a lot of the mods we have don\'t actually come here anymore, but also remember that this board is extremely slow right now and hell, we could cut down to one per forum (\'cept for OFF-TOPIC) and it wouldn\'t hurt anything.

And when was Vapor a m0d? Did I miss something?

Or until ddaryl returns from his 6 month absence. I know he posted like four weeks ago, but he only posted twice and they were brief.

I don\'t care anymore anyways you bastards.

Closed.

Errrr...

One of us current mods will be considered before you...

:fro:

By the way, I find it funny that you\'re asking this when I was just going over the old threads in the Wall of Shame and I happened to read your thread about you leaving this place. You were complaining about Ryu picking on you and resetting your post count, etc.

Funny you would be asking for a mod position from the board you got sick of...
Title: Get a fair admin..
Post by: Living-In-Clip on January 27, 2004, 09:45:45 PM
Here\'s how it goes.

There are Admin\'s....Ryu, MM and Vid.

There are elite m0ds...Sam, Ash, Me, Bobo, ooSeven and No-ONE...

Then there are those m0ds we don\'t even consider m0ds because their forum sections sucks..Hurriacne, Kimihrai or however you spell it..They\'re the wanna be\'s. :D

Then there are the m0ds we never see...Ddaryl, Unknown (not sure why he is a mod), Luckee and a few others.

Finally, there is the gay moderator, who is Luke. He is there so we can be a equal right\'s forum! We support homosexuals also.

:D
.Stll, do we need to have more people moderate? No. Becomes a point where there are too many m0ds and not enough people to pick on... And we all know the mods love picking on people.

-goes to delete (e) and Swif\' random posts-

;)
Title: Get a fair admin..
Post by: Ashford on January 27, 2004, 10:07:45 PM
Me and Bobo shouldn\'t even be considered "elite" since we hardly ever get to do anything...

On that note - why not just give all mods equal access? That way if per say, someone starts posting warez links in PC forum and PC forum mods aren\'t online, the mod online could handle it.
Bah!

Damn. Some serious ownage goin\' on there. Though, I would not call Titan "another Spudz". He is not near as bad as Spudz, infact, Titan really doesn\'t do anything wrong . I consider it more your counter-part, a goody-two shoe\'s.

Post by: SwifDi on January 28, 2004, 07:14:14 PM
Thing with Titan, and I didn\'t want it to have to come to this but apparently he doesn\'t like me very much so I think its appropriate, he literally doesn\'t do anything, period. He\'s one of those guys that bring nothing to the table, and the majority of his posts either regurgitate the obvious or are simply plain to say the least.

For example he has nearly 7000 posts and I can\'t remember one of them being significant or him creating a good thread, etc. He\'s just one of those token members at all forums that just posts a lot of unspecial crap, and nobody would even notice if he suddenly never posted again.

AND HE THINKS SPUDZ IS FUNNY.

I rest my case, any guy who wanted to change his name to TITan is a tool. Even FreeStylah had more balls than that.

So, what you are saying, in not so many words is, you have your place on this board. You fill a void, the virgin, christain void that we lack. The upper-class teen also. Is that what you\'re saying?

As for not remembering one single post by Titan, I think the only reason anyone remembers your posts is because you spilled your guts out in your "Ugh, I\'m pissed" threads.. Much like the only reason anyone notices Racer is due to the shower story. So, yes I agree, Titan has not found his niche. He may be the token member, but is that a problem? I would rather him not have a niche, then be another Spudz, who is only noticed because he is extremely annoying.
 ;)

We\'re all tools. Just some of us don\'t know it \'till it\'s to late.

Post by: SwifDi on January 28, 2004, 07:51:26 PM
To an extent, you\'re right. However Spudz is on a different level as Titan, because he\'s the guy that basically nobody really likes. My point is different members have various posting styles, and make points differently, and just provide some character to these boards. Its not necessarily about filling the available voids, its just about having some personality. Those "Ugh I\'m pissed" threads and Racer\'s shower ordeal is what makes these boards great.

As much as I hate to say this.....


Agree\'d.

At this point I\'m more concerned with what you would classify my "posting style" as...

Let me guess, \'snobbish, elite bastard\'?
;)

As for posting style and you wanting to be a moderator, I get a kick out of this post..

Quote
I\'m outta here. This place is definately at an all-time low. Everyone is conforming to this whole new bullshit approach and OT, the only place worth posting at before, is now as lame as the Suggestions forum. I mean upon my return I\'m looking through thread after thread and they\'re all just boring conversations with the same two or three people repeating the obvious.
 
 Good luck with this new approach. Quite frankly from some people I talk to they think its lame as well and that all it does is axe the fun factor. Some mods are so sensitive to spam its frightening. You guys really haven\'t been to other gaming boards have you? Because if so, then you would realize that even the days when OT is at its spammiest, its pretty damn clean in comparison to other places. Its f*cking ridiculous how serious you take spam, and it seems like its always the same small selected few that complain about it. I bet if we actually had a majority vote of the regular members, and not the ALL-POWERFUL mods then it would show that no one gives a shit about the small and petty accounts of spam.
 
 If you want serious discussions so god damn much go to someplacesomewhere.com or some shit. These are PS2 boards! A magnet for horny teenagers, men that can\'t get laid, and geeks of all various types! Hello?!?! What the f*** do you expect?
 
 The only thing that really hurts about leaving is having to pull out of the Madden league, I had alot of fun with that, but I doubt I\'ll be able to continue seeing that I\'m starting to absolutly despise these boards and alot of people that run it.
 
 Actually... I don\'t really hate anyone here. Everyone brings their own unique deck of cards to the table and thats what made OT so special. This week I\'ve been gone has made everyone blur in together so really you didn\'t know who was who anymore unless you read the username and noted the avatar. OT was about fun, and spam is so incredibly overrated.
 
 Ryu has definately been the thorn in my side since day one. The very first thing I posted, he was there to make things hell, all the way to my final post I\'m sure. He places himself upon his almighty pedestal all the time, and talks down to everybody. Apparently its his way or the highway, this place has no sense of democracy whatsoever. In fact thats one of the biggest flaws here at these boards. The other boards I post at, and probably will remain at from here on out, have a bustling suggestions forum where there are live discussions on changes and adjustments to the forums, this way all members have say in it.
 
 I personally like Ryu\'s final blow to reseting my post count and then permanently altering my title. "Never funny"... according to you, your majesty. Most people did find me funny and did enjoy my posts. But its all up to the king right? I guess so.
 
 Its too late to give any shoutouts, the cool people know who they are and I\'ll always be on AIM (FearTheRedHead).
 


:D

Who would of guessed? A former spammer, like Gman and Titan turning to the other side. Now encourages posts that make people noticable and memorable.. Ah, yes, you\'ve been converted my tool...errr.. son .

I remember how overjoyed I felt when I read that post, SwifDi, and I must say, it makes me laugh now more than anything else.  It\'s just proof that superfluous features don\'t make a member great -- it\'s the posts and how they contribute to the forum that makes them memorable and likeable.

Take your new self for example, basically how LiC described you above and I must say, this new you is much more fun and likeable then the old you.  It\'s true that I\'m not much on religion or people running their lives based on it, but hey, that\'s a choice we all have to make one day and it\'s clear you made yours and I hope you\'re perfectly happy with that decision.  I\'m just glad it\'s changed you for the better rather then into some evangelist prick.  :)

And seriously I know we have some kind of archives forum of the sort, I bet there is tons of good stuff in there. Particularly all the "Ugh.. I\'m pissed" threads.

Well since this is the suggestions forum...

I suggest that we do what a majority of the other forums do and open the archive forum to the public... Of course the forum itself is closed and there is no further discussion, just so that we can read them for a little bit of nostalgia. :)

There actually is no archives forum, but there are forum topics that are achived -- namely those that are game specific which serve no purpose then to discuss a particular game.  After that, all the old threads, up to the last forum crash, for off-topic and the main forum are readily available through the search.  There\'s no old-ass forum topic out there somewhere other then the wall o\' shame which is where certain topics end up that turn inanely stupid from noobies who were banned outright.  Not worth reading, just a log of who has been here before and why they were banned.
