Shout out to the forum moderators!

It ain't easy keeping the official boards clear of useless clutter, trash, and spam threads. You are multiple appendages of the "man" be it his ear to listen to the community, his mouth to communicate information, or even his rear for which trolls can kiss. It's a thankless job requiring a level of self-restraint many couldn't possibly fathom and you all do it with amazing grace and ease. So I just wanted to say thank you for doing the job I would not want in a thousand years and keep up the good work.

    Great job guys and gals! Enjoy the upcoming holidays as well :).
  • Aye, thank you for allowing some satire on this forum in what is likely an exhausting job.

  • Thank you for the really hard work. Many appreciate it. :)
  • Yes thank you for finally starting to shut these stupid and annoying Natelordofthebanned & fairymen posts down.
  • Should skalds at least say when they are going to SOS ?

  • Merry Christmas.
  • I've seen many unnecessary posts get ninja removed. Good job mods. Keep the vigilance and Happy Holidays!
  • Totally agreed with Beetleguisse. Awesome job mods. Have a wonderful holidays!!!!
  • Have to agree. I don't envy their job.

    On a side note.. .are there processes in place to protect mods, like a "Three Strikes and your Out" rule? I know that isnt the case, but wondered if there is a habitual offender rule that is underwritten somewhere? That would make your jobs a lot easier.

    I can only imagine how irritating it is to warn someone repeatedly about the same thing.
  • The mods have been amazing and deserve any and all praise, so ty all for giving that to them! :)

  • Yes. Good job. I see they have banned a horrendous repeat offender. Hopefully permanently and in game as well.

    Most biased MF'rs here are the mods. Same rules don't apply to everyone its hypocrisy at its best.

    just to clarify this isn't bashing its just friendly game banter.

    Well it's fair to disagree with certain rules or it's implication, however your comment is a fine example of "bashing". Note: If I decide to call a chair a desk, it doesn't make it a desk. Like that is not a friendly game banter just because you call it that. :)

    Oh, before you ask what, lets not act like none knows what "MF'rs" stand for. Rest of it is fine. :)

    It would be really hilarious when people get banned for posting on a forum but all the cheaters that affect in game play run rampant. Its also funny we have people who are admining this forum but cant get any CSR's in the actual game. #priorities

    Mods are volunteers. CSRs are not unless I'm mistaken.

    If they are volunteers they should have no way to affect an in game account period. Nor should they have any right to admin the official forum.

    there is to much focus on the little small words people use that effects bans, or the way they say it

    when at the end of the day everyone is being just the same rude to each other as the other, if your not gonna let 1 person be rude don't let anyone, you have to stop picking and choosing who is allowed to talk **** and be rude all day freely, and who cannot, when besides 1-2 lil words they are doing the exact same thing...and the refusal of staff to treat everyone the same is grossly unprofessional and disgusting

    like nate, he makes a post about his group having fun in rvr, then people come and make fun of him and he says somethin to get banned, now would nate say those things is those people didn't come to EVERY single thread EVERY single day EVERY single time he makes one harassing him first ?

    you have to stop punishing the people your not fond of and let others do the same thing over and over with no punishment, or step down from your positions out of respect for those of us who still love and care about this game

    need to take away the volunteer babysitters and let people realise they are on the internet with grown adults, if your stupid enough to let someone hurt your feelings on the internet go read a book or something

    its a video game, ban cheaters and let the rest play out ;\ if someone is that out of line you can throw a random perma ban and end it, but this everyday lil monitoring **** is a joke, we aren't 5 year olds grow up

    its just a game on the internet, 1 that happens to be about the dark ages and war and battle and chaos, what do you expect people who come post pictures of flowers and say good job for beat me ? -_-

    Nate baits and people bite. I agree that those who fuel the fire are part of the problem; however, that does not dismiss his trolling behavior. The best course of action has been and always will be: don't feed the troll(s).

    On a side note, his YouTube account is closed. Unclear of the reason but it came shortly after bashing a player live streaming his Relic shenanigans.

    Regardless, I think the mods are doing a good job keeping people in check. This includes the unnecessary responses to Nate's baiting.

    Choices have consequences. There are pretty clear lines that, if crossed, yield consequences. Why should someone that elects to cross those lines not suffer the punishment they risk? I too would find issue if everyone was being equally vile yet only certain people were punished, however that is not the case and to claim otherwise is to ignore reality.

    ive been banned for sayin idio** or retar*** once to someone, but everyone else can go post 7k nate in every single thread he makes every single day and that's ok ? to me 7k says the same as "lol your the worst **** person ive ever seen and I cant stop laughing at how terrible you are everyday"

    that's how I take it, and that's how the people sayin it are meaning it to be

    but that's ok right ? someone says something dumb and I say "are you an idiot lol?" and Im instantly banned ?
    but someone calls someone the **** worst noob they ever seen every single day for months and nothin, but if the person reponds they are the ones banned for personal attack ? lol


    they let brutal rudeness go by dependin who is sayin it, and ban for way less for others, the way things are being ran by the leadership here is just atrocious, and unfortunetly for people who care about daoc, deeply sad

    Banter vs. direct attacks has already been addressed in a previous thread. I'm not sure how you're interpreting 7k nate as a personal attack when it all it does is reflect his RP earnings. This is comparable to saying "you suck" which has been cleared by the mods.

    It's not a personal attack, it would be classified as baiting/trolling.

    shrugs all of the adults I know don't get upset and start whining and crying and throwing fits when someone they are playing a game with starts busting their chops about losing

    only children do that
  • This discussion appears to be a bit off track. The original post was a shout-out to the moderators on this forum in recognition of the difficulty in trying to balance banter and attacks. The job isn't easy. Everyone's threshold is different and subject to interpretation. Trust me my threshold is much lower than Huehuaehue's threshold <smile>

I understand your friend got banned and you are upset and trying to defend him in anyways you can, but at this point there's no more ways for him. if you care about your friend and love this game, really find something else to read for while.its my advice to you as a game mate :)

    It very well may be. Only the mods can make that call. If the player base isn't happy with how posts are regulated, then they should send in feedback and/or move to another forum whose mods align with their views.

    The people being constantly banned are yourself and nate, I'd say the mods have got it spot on, I got a mild warning for baiting and trolling, but I have not been banned, I do not use bad language on the official forums and I do not bring real life targeted comments either. Stick within the rules and you'll be fine, you're not as bad as Nate, he gets bans back to back, I find it weird people get banned multiple times, learn from the warning and act accordingly.

    I have received a warning myself and endeavored to avoid the same manner of comments that earned me that warning. Seems to me that those repeatedly banned appear to be the saltiest in regards to the mods. But I agree, this thread was started with the purpose of giving the forum mods a nod. I would encourage you to start a separate thread for forum mod critique, though you do so at your own risk.

    In your opinion others are being more rude. I have a feeling others would disagree. Nevertheless, mods exist to make that judgement and Carol has oversight and the ability to correct any judgement she disagrees with. There exists sufficient oversight, in my opinion, to guard against unjust bans. I do not feel abuse of power has occurred in this instance.
