Rules are fine, controls are fine. BUT WHEN YOU HAVS MODS WITH SIGS LIKE THESE, IT IS INCREDIBLY IDIOTIC AND STUPID! It just demonstrates the fact that moderators enjoy abusing their power.


better watch out, better not cry... i'm gonna ban you, and you wont know why....

THIS IS SPY1's signature. It makes me so mad.

Ha. Actions precede words. Spy's sig does NOT demonstrate the 'fact' that mods abuse their power.

CRY DAMMIT!

oh wait... yes, I told you to cry, BAD dictator mod...

See... it is just made into one big joke. You employ rules yet you have individuals who ABUSE the power that comes in enforcing them.

Bud, it's just a signature. You're whining over a signature. :rolleyes:

Do you honestly think someone would get banned without a good reason?

This forum is far from a dictatorship. His sig is a joke, you know... JOKE.

Smood
04-10-2003, 07:06 PM
Well I apologize then. I did take it as a joke, but I also thought it was a reflection of his power. The fact he enjoys being able to talk to anyone without them being able to talk back. As they say power corrupts, but who am I to say such things?

The reason I may not have humor is because MODERATORS ARE STRICT about their rules not flexible, SO IN TURN, I'm strict with what I see, what I think.

If you want to do things by the book, then expect order, and no humor. If you are willing to relax and be flexible, then I can laugh at a joke.

Simple as that.

I'me extremely sorry moderators enforce board rules yet allow people to joke. This shall be rectified immediately.

Keep going, I might eventually laugh.

Looks to me like you are a casual fan with a very flimsy respect for STAR WARS with your Yoda smoking avatar.

look guy...

I am a SWAMPIE, first and last, and everywhere inbetween...

being a MOD..SUPERMOD...ADMIN doesn't strip one's sence of humor...

we're not "STRICT" (well, sometimes) but we've SEEN it before, and know how to deal with people.

what exactly do you have to offer for example of STRICTNESS? i'd be glad to explain.

one counter example comes to mind, a JEDI_SPY or somesuch jerk came along, and stole my name (SPY)

he treated me like a total ass, and if I had given in, he'd have been banned right there.

I didn't.

I banned him for a worse offence, later that week.

abuse? how?

No, not really. I love star wars. I don't see how me having a smoking Yoda avatar has anything to do with how much of a fan I am or how much respect I have for the franchise. Sounds to me like you're just trolling now.

Smood

Although I admire this act of restraint, you even considering banning him is ludicrous. Unless he flamed you DIRECTLY FOR NO REASON, then I don't see any reason why he would even have been considered for banning.

I think you might have to do a little research into the rules, Smood; members can be banned for many reasons aside from flaming. Moderators and Super Moderators are picked because the admins feel that they will do their job well and carry out the rules of the forum in a suitable manner. Are you telling me this suitable manner involves not being allowed to have a joke? SPY is a good moderator, a very good one, I will tell you that now. I look up to him, as I do with some other members of the staff, as a figure of importance and experience in these forums. I don't think you're in a position to judge how the mods do their job: the admins judged his ability and potential when they modded him.

Ok, I'm probably 1 of the biggest Star Wars fan (EU area ;) ) and I see nothing wrong with his avy. I think it's hilarious!

LMAO :lol:

There are many rules beside not flaming. And I have not yet seen one mod abuse their power yet. In fact, I find SPY pretty funny. It's that thing called "humor." You should try and get to know it sometime.

Oh my god, what a fruit..... :p
Oh my God! Spy is trying to lighten up the mood. Lets kill him. :rolleyes:

So, your saying Rhett does not respect Star Wars because he made an avatar of Yoda smoking? oh no! Kill that guy because he has Luke in his name. :rolleyes:

Man, what are you, a 50 year old guy who stays on his computer and tells everyone that they are using their sence of humor for evil? :rolleyes:

It seems like you are, because your calling a website a dictaorship. :disaprove: :rolleyes:

I suppose this is no longer a serious discussion, so what can I say?

Just to be clear I DID NOT CALL the website a dictatorship. For those who say I need a sense of humor read my earlier post.

Well, not yet anyway...

:p;)

Well Smood, it is no longer a serious discussion because the subject is about something so trivial; it's just a signature, and does not represent SPY's true intentions. Like I said, he's a great moderator, and we know he's only joking.

Sounds like you need to get to know people round here a bit more. Why don't you post in some other threads in the Swamp here, you have as much right as anyone else...just like SPY has as much right as anyone else to make a joke in his sig;):)

Oh......well, okay then. So.........right........


I think the mods DO abuse their power!!! I mean, I got banned yesterday for 3 minutes because I gave SPY a dirty look......that was harsh........okay, i made up that story......crap......umm.....

Hey Smood,


I have a problem with your signature.

Its says your a member of the jk2.net staff.

Change it, it is false advertising.


and btw. you DID call this forum a dictatorship. Just look at the title of the thread. Calling moderators dictators is in essence calling this web site a dictatorship.


So just cool it, please.

i just to drop by for my ten cent contribution.
as im here from july i know most ppl very well and i can assure you these mods are doing evrything they can to make this a nice place. it wouldnt be the same without them (can you say troll). and ive never seen anyone abuse their power.

and second, i see you are around since marche'02 but havent made much posts. it tells me you are not around that often and thus i feel you dont have right to judge someone just because of a quote in his sig. and still, as someone says, writes something, it doesnt want to say he means it. when you look at my sig and see the "when will all men learn..." quote, it doesnt mean i think mankind sucks and robots rock. no, it just means im a huge fan off bender.

so to conclude, dont judge anyone before you actually know the fella ;)
and more important, let the mods do their job with a little dignity as they deserve it for doing it day after day
