View Full Version : New admistration?

03-30-2003, 07:18 AM
I notices all these new forum rules,

1. No criticizing?

Doesnt that cut a persons freedom of speech down 50%??

Sounds like the new order has come along and taken over this forum..

03-30-2003, 07:29 AM
It doesn't say "No critisizing," it says "No flaming." There is a difference.


The rules aren't new,either. They've been around for a long time.

03-30-2003, 07:33 AM
Whos the judge? ALso, whats the differnece? Same thing but ones just in a nice polite package?? Sounds alittle fuzzy to me =)

03-30-2003, 07:36 AM
Also, i got totally dissed... The administrators in another room tottaly ignored the "flamming" towards me and just focused on what i put in..I didnt notice " Rules do not apply if you are good with the staff" at the bottom of the rules folder =)

No Critacizing means not giving help on something.

If something is done by someone and you think it could be better, you could critacise them.

No Flaming means none of this sort of thing (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=95848)

See, there is a huge differance.

The rules just basically sum up to 'BE NICE' so try and stick to that rule instead of trying to find hidden meanings in others.

Edit - I think there is a no Double Posting rule, dont know if its written but its there.

Remember, there is an EDIT button.

The judges are the moderating and administrating staff. It's a group effort. ;)

The difference between critisizing and flaming is like this:

Critisizing- "Hmm, it needs work," or "It seems unfinished. Is it done?"

Flaming- "God, it's stupid! You're stupid! DIE!"

Gonkraider, you've been warned :) cool it. We're very laid back people. As much as I enjoy a good swear or taunt, this is a family place, and will remain a family place. We need to not just rip into eachother because the other person said something less intelligent.

Please refrain from abusing other forum goers :)

And have a nice day.

kneels down-

As you wish :vadar:

Well gonk, -the admin- Look like my old name was banned because i pointed out a double standard.. I guess its ok to flame if you were flamed first.. the man acdc didnt evne respond back.. he just unintelligently banned me with out backing up his position.

And to think at one time I used to respect him.. nice to see theres a good old boys club here

03-30-2003, 08:13 AM
you were banned for your "virginity" thread comments.... not this thread...

03-30-2003, 08:14 AM
Mind you that was made before i was warnned... So, is that justifyed to do a double jepordy?

MR.GR who did you used to be?, I'm fed up of you trolls. If you honestly had no reason to be banned then fine welcome back. But I doubt ACDC would have banned anyone for no reason.

I dont think It's right to flame someone if they flame you, but I suppose at least you have a reason.

If this continues I'm off to EB. Sorry guys, but gonk-raider has made me forget about how good my life seems to be getting.

Time for me to celebrate :cool:

STOP BANNING ME..Your banning me for something i posted before i was warned.. henced i understood not to behave in such a manner... Im a decent person. .try talking to me insted of constantly banning.. I've already halted such behavior.. LEAsson learned.. i was talked to for my behavior.

Your hardly an enemy, just a nuisance. Or as they are called here, a Troll.

When you're banned Is there a time limit? If there is then wait until it is up before returning, it doesnt mean you are supposed to make a new profile.

Stop trying to annoy everyone and just try and get along. I know the swamp has changed since you came her all those months ago but try and appriciate the changes.

03-30-2003, 08:34 AM
Sir, you've offended me.. I've been calleda troll.. isnt that flamming??? Police .. police!!!?.. funny, no ones warning you.. =\ IM simply trying to use my rights that this forum has given me. I was appreciating it untill iwas banned for something i've alreayd been warned about. READ THE TIME LOGS

03-30-2003, 08:37 AM
He most probably got an account ban, not an IP-ban.

Troll isn't flamming! :p

I'm a Troll in disguise. ;)

03-30-2003, 08:41 AM
Once again, good old boys club.. Really? its not... well then You're a troll in the sense that you call me names then hide behind a system that obviously doesnt work.

So far.. i;ve been called names and banned for something i was already warrned about.

03-30-2003, 08:41 AM
Stop coming back. You've been banned for 24 hours. Come back in a day or so and we'll unban your gonkraider name. Until then, stay off the forums, or we'll keep banning. And you were warned.

03-30-2003, 08:43 AM
Wow. Now i see you'll defend your position to avoid ridicule.

Sir, You've banned me for misbehaviing.. I told you i would stop, read the time stamps. AFter i was warnned i didnt say anything to deserve this.

Who's pushing this railroading.. Show your self puppet master!!

Shut up and leave or at least say something helpful.

You've been here all afternoon annoying me and others no doubt. So please just go and do something that makes other people happy.

*waits for corny reply*

03-30-2003, 08:56 AM
Final word, Now.. im about to call this flamming..

:rolleyes: I know you'll all say its not.. but to give him amnisty is to give me a free past too.. fore my original thread that warrned me was no better then this young mans comment right here.

Im sad that you all seem to be so willing to see me gone that you'll push the rules aside so people can get their pot shots in so i'll say something to make my situation worse.

I Suppose im done for now.. though i dont know if i'll return in 24 hours with such obvious favoritism.

:rolleyes: x100

KONGREDIAD Er... I mean Gonk-Raider, why do you continue to come back? Whats your purpose here? What are you trying to accomplish?

03-30-2003, 12:34 PM
oi.... :rolleyes:

Calling someone a troll isn't flaming. A troll means coming back and making fun of everyone, or spamming. The admins don't consider this an insult or flame.

Just IP ban KONGREDIAD, and close the thread. Not trying to tell you guys how to do your job, but it would work. :p

03-30-2003, 12:38 PM
Actually a troll is someone who lives under a bridge. :D

Don't IP ban KONG, just ban him for a day or so, lucasforums isnt that strict. And when I got banned I deserved it.

Gonk raider, stop coming back after being banned, or we will go IP. I know you're probably gonna want to come back under a DIFFERENT name and have a hissy fit. If you do, we WILL go for an IP ban.

Please cease.

Thank you.
