Fine, be seclusive and secretive about your little rules... :P
   Actually, keeping the rules secret would be bad, since we want you all to know them. The controls behind them, however, need not be public.

hey, i wasnt added to any of your lists. ::)
is there, uh, something you might want to share with me Makenshi? ;)

It's a new list, hence you are not on it.

Although if you feel left out I'm sure I can ask Rasmus what he thinks would be fair starting points for you...

although i wont deny that the implication was never there...

oh yeah, i feel left out. i love attention to the extent where getting my name on a stickied thread is a crowning achievment for me. ::)
Well, good bye guys. It's been great here. Thanks for everything.

You know Tubsy, I see you making good posts, and I see you making bad posts.
You've got a custom title for flaming others on this forum. You can lose that by good behaviour.
If you refrain from posting spam, refrain from flaming, and make posts that contribute constructively you'll do fine.

If the mods call you down for something, there is usually a reason for it. Accept and improve and you will do well.
Like I said, I've seen you make good, helpful posts. It's only a minor change on your part to get along nicely with the mods I should think.

Bravo, nicely put.

Although I haven't seen Tubsy's good posts but that's because they're on other Boards.

In all honesty I think it's the Tavern that gets to you Tubsy, heck, it gets to me, I just beat up inatimate objects instead of flaming people.

good posts exist in other boards such as the 40k related ones where i actually feel the need to help people with constructive comments.
and no, its not the tavern that bugs me, its just the jerks who inhabit this board who feel that because its an OT board they can go around and bully people, me included.
i think of myself as a hero or some crap like that. i stick up for myself and some people who dont like modly attention. i get thanks from them and PMs from the admins. i think its worth it.
(yeah im insane. watcha gonna do about it?)

   1. If you want to make a difference then let us do our job. Use "report to moderator" instead of breaking the rules and flaming left and right. It is just the wrong way to go about it.
   2. You get PMs because you break the rules. You know that.
   3. What we will do? Simple. If you don't follow the rules you will be banned. Good enough answer for you? Now you have to think this over a bit; can you swallow your pride and follow the rules, or would that hurt your ego too much? If it does then you should leave before we make you, since you are never going to be a constructive member of this Community. Harsh but true.

ok im just defending myself here.

1. well its kind of hard to report to moderators when it happen to be the mods who do the bullying but i get the idea.
2. yes i know i get PMs for breaking the rules. sometime i get multiple PMs concerning the same incident.
3. well i didnt actually ask you TO do it but yeah i get the message.

it wouldnt hurt my ego to swallow my pride. god knows some people have already crushed it all for me.
i can stay; watch me.

as for moderators being bad-guys: That is why there are more than one mod watching. Gloibals and admins. Or take it up with Raine. He has the final word. It is not an excuse.

when did i say that they were bad guys?
i simply stated that they tend to be cranky, and not even on this board.

That seems to imply that they are bad guys.

Also if you don't say which Mods we can only assume you mean the ones here.

This is the point where I point out you're double posting again but it makes no real difference because mods are always right and you will just complain and say we've already had this discussion so I'm just going to leave it at that and you will probably delete this post anyway but I don't mind.......bye ;)

That's right folks, ectoplasm, the force which keeps the sun orbiting around me. Learn it well.

No, as an announcement, the moderator (and poster) is allowed to post updates, so that the "new"-flag appears. I usually do this by modifying the last post, but this limited bump is acceptable as well. Makenshi and I talked this over before. Just chill. Everything is still under control.

I know, I was just making a point for the sake of being pointless. I know it's fine for you do do that and so on but I felt like complaining all the same :P

Basically, anyone who clicks on the link adds to your personal score, adn we have had some trouble with people posting links saying "Hey, check this out!" or "new carnifex!" and then the link leads to the KoC. Those guys got in trouble really quickly too.
