Personally, I think unless you have something to post about the Episode itself, or a tangent thereof, you should be skipping this thread.
If the original thread had stayed on topic, there would be no need for this one. Clearly, this one was created to continue off-topic discussions.

Have you considered how unfriendly you come across to many members?
I challenge you to find a time when I attacked someone that did not first offend either me or someone else first. I have never said a cross word to anyone that didn't ask for it. I have never made fun of someone for simply grammatical errors. I have never given anyone crap for 'spamming' or asking silly questions. I may be blatantly offensive to those who deserve it, but that is nothing compared to how subtly offensive other members are to people who don't.

And aw, poor Kelandon. I dropped his name and now he has to go back to making personal attacks. Predictable much?

Then leave.
Unfortunately, my love of Jeff's games outweighs my hatred for the people here. This is the only place I can come to talk about Geneforge. The fact that you, a mod, are telling my to leave it because this community has offended me and others and I have called them out on it is, frankly, disgraceful. I wish you mods took your job more seriously. You're supposed to keep this community friendly, not tell people to leave when they realize it isn't.

Can the same not be said for me? Yet I am the only one that get scolded and punished for the offenses. Is it because Thuryl has a lower member number than me, or is it because he taunts people with higher member numbers than I do?

Drew: Older members make sarcastic and offensive statement all the time, and then they are praised for their wisdom. Yet now you say that you agree with me, but that my message is undermined by my delivery. Why is it that the rules only apply to me? And why is it that everyone chooses to attack me while agreeing with me? Are they not undermining the message just as much as I am by doing so?

M: That would be fine if what you were saying was true. All too many times I have seen people ask legitimate questions about the games in the game forums only to have their questions mocked by someone like Thuryl and left unanswered. As a consumer of the games, I like to come here to talk about them, and am constantly confronted with a hostile community, more concerned with personal attacks than with discussing the games, in the game forums! My point is that you are hostile towards customers, and that is the problem I have with this community.

S: I was told specifically that I was banned for spamming the picture. Unfortunately, I did not keep that message. How convenient for you.

Less clear-cut than your ban for hateful pictures,
Woah, woah, let me make this clear: I was never banned for 'hateful pictures' as you put it. If you are referring to my cleverly edited picture of Italian immigrants to look like oppressed RW Cult members, I was specifically told I was banned for spamming that picture (banned for spamming the RWG forum, can you imagine?), not because of the picture's nature. That's the second time someone claimed to know something about why I was banned and was completely wrong.

Did you not read what I just wrote? Or is Kelandon in fact not an oldbie?

Nioca:
You were banned for directly insulting aforementioned administrator
You speak as if you know what you are talking about, as if you know what the administrator was thinking. Perhaps you are not as in touch with the higher powers as you think. I have, in my mailbox, a message from Stareye stating that my comments directed at him played no part in my banning. Straight from the horses mouth. I was banned for 'arrogance.' When I asked Stareye to explain what the hell that meant, he said he felt no need to explain himself further.
quote:
Generic Mod:
"Doofus" is a word people use when they're being friendly.
You get to interpret what words mean for everyone else? My mental dictionary attaches negative connotations to that word, not friendly ones. Even if what you are saying was true, Kelandon is not my friend, so I took offense to his comment. I was being serious in that debate, and he resorted to name calling. I did not sink to his level, however, and instead choose to mock his argument, rather than him personally. I was punished accordingly.

And if I was being so unreasonable in that debate, why did no one tell me what I was doing wrong? People were being rude to me, so I was being rude right back. What the hell kind of warning is "your arrogance annoys us, cut it out" anyway? It wasn't even a real warning, it was just another insult from an older member directed at a new one. You'd think the people running these boards, at least, would use some tact when informing newer members of proper behavior.

Would you consider Kelandon an oldbie? In the thread that got my my very first banning (a tread called "Shapers Keeping Secrets", a Geneforge debate thread), he called me a doofus. I responded (without any name-calling) and Stareye, in his infinite wisdom, somehow gathered that my response was, quote, 'arrogant' and gave me my first ban. I did not break the CoC, I was banned for responding to a direct insult from someone whom I think we can all agree is an oldbie. This was acceptable to other members because I was new at the time. I can go on if you wish.

So I think the double standard is gone, as far as CoC violations are concerned.
This is simply not true. When I first came here and participated in Geneforge debates, I was told all the time that my opinions were stupid and so was I. I'd back them up with evidence from the games, but older members seemed more bent on insulting me personally that when I finally attacked back, I was the one that got banned. I can give you direct quotes and examples if you require more convincing. The double standard is alive and well, and I don't even have to count Alec among my evidence to prove it.

Why do you keep pretending to know me and/or what you're talking about, Salmon? What does any of that towards the end of your post even mean? I'm calling the admins to task? Why would I do that? They don't listen. Why do you think I'm trying to change things? I already made it clear that the only members that stay are stubborn ones, bent on keeping a backwards caste system in hopes that they will one day reach its pinnacle. No, I'm not trying to change things, just point out the shortcomings and hopefully diminish the pride you all seem to have invested in this nonsense.

Nalyd: Poor Nayld, brainwashed into self-hatred. I mourn for you. You should change your signature to "Mourn for us, mortals."

Generic Mod: Useful members are allowed to break the CoC? How is that fair? All that accomplishes is a reinforced elitist system that scares off outsiders. And who decides what is useful? I could name a lot of members that have not posted anything 'useful' since I got here yet they seem to be on this unwritten list of 'tolerated.'

And another thing, why is it that I am the only one that is regularly banned? I post on the games forums all the time, I have debates with Jeff himself, he's said on at least one occasion that I make cool threads. Yet I am constantly punished for even the slightest infractions why? Because I choose to attack the offensive oldbies rather than the offensive newbies?

I disagree and await the votes of other players. If the consensus is that this RP should indeed be ended, I demand to draft the conclusion myself. It's only right, seeing as I seem to be the only interested player.

Alorael:
More posts and having been around longer means you've had more of a chance to build up that perceived identity that allows you to get away with things.
So you are now agreeing with my earlier assertion that people are judged by numbers here rather than content? You just said the opposite a few posts ago, why the flip-flop?
quote:
Nioca, Nalyd, and you, ET, were given hard times because you posted in such a way that you were perceived as legitimate targtes of ribbing, both good-natured and not so good-natured
This is a direct violation of the code of conduct. There are no "legitimate" targets of "not so good-natured" attacks. Some mod you are.
quote:
Just because you find the need to be inoffensive itself offensive to your sensibilities doesn't mean Spiderweb should conform to your idea of acceptance of all, no matter how grating they may be.
This is not the problem at all. I would never preach the acceptance of all members. I believe in giving new members a chance to prove themselves before dismissing them after only a few misguided posts (something this community does not do) and I also believe repeated offenses by senior members should not be so readily forgiven (another thing this community does not do). You punish people before they know what's going on, and you tolerate people that should know better. You all seem to have things completely ass backwards. It defies logic!

Damn it Nioca and Nayld! You bastards never have my back! After all I've done for you! We registered at the same time, I considered you my forum brothers, I would always stick up for you when no one else would. You can consider that time over! You're on their side now. A dream come true for you both, I'm sure.

Hmm, further proof of my earlier theory that the Spiderweb community drives away all but the most stubborn and annoying potential members. You clearly have no business being here, Diki.

Drakefyre and Alorael don't post garbage. You, on the other hand, have made more than your fair share of suspect posts and threads. I could name others, but I really hope your all not seriously that oblivious.

Well, that's the biggest pile of crap I've heard on here in a while. I haven't forgotten how you all treated me when I was a new member, and I'm sure Nioca and Nalyd haven't forgotten how miserably you treated them. On the flip side, I can name multiple low numbered members that post total garbage whenever they are around, yet they are not given nearly as hard a time as newer members who post legitimately (except by me, of course). How can you say people are judged by their content when these are the conditions this board is living under?
