Heavy weapons should obviously go to Urouge.
If I was an admin, I would make an e-harmony profile and link it in my sig so all the members can find out how they sync up with me based on thousands of compatibility quotients!
--- Update From New Post Merge ---
In case my totally wacky responses have not indicated anything, I have actually paid a lot of attention to this thread and given it quite a bit of thought and examination. I will not write a large, overbearing post on the subject. I only have one blunt response that sums up my thoughts in relation to this entire topic:
They banter all over the damn place. They always have! Did when they were regular posters, still do now. Hell, some of them are bantering in this very thread! There's no need for a "transparent place" because this isn't China, goddamn.
You act like the moment a mod appears s/he's there to trample over your little Precious Moments tea party.
They're in here trying to figure out what you want but "no suh, no siriee, i'ma jus go march up onto dat execution platform n' put my head under dat dere guillotine. For the cause. );" Now folks are feeling adversarial when they never did and your purpose of creating a problem out of what could have been a very helpful discussion has been served. Grats.
Every post you go "they're gonna ban me for speaking, they're gonna ban me, the cruel One Piece forum mod proletariat North Korean regime!" like you're trying to make a non-issue into a self-fulfilling prophecy. You're hurling insults and making off-the-wall conjecture to earnest, sincere answers and ignoring everything that does not agree with your drive - which has been, from the start, to vaguely disagree with how the mods run things. You introduce the notion of "they'll ban me if I say too much...!" as if it were clever, as if it were subtle, and then mention it in every subsequent post despite it not even being on the table. Right: they'll ban you for using the suggestions subforum for suggestions.
It's the furthest thing from the truth.
If they banned you, it'd be for trolling.
May cooler heads prevail for the remainder of this thread? I'd like something good to come of this.
Can we get some people in here willing to have a big boys discussion about things they might like to see?
wait, there's ice cream.... where?
WARNING (Explicit Dialog)!!
Or, it could have been due to the fact that the profiles for the mods were all made up
maybe next time, the creator could try interviewing the mods/admins Oh, I forgot about the wall
WARNING (Explicit Dialog)!!
I've tried reading this thread a few times over and I'm sorry but I still don't really get what's being proposed here. My initial thoughts were an open feedback thread, which makes some sense and all, but it seems to have spiraled into something ridiculous. I don't get why this is even argued when all it takes to get to know an admin or mod is as simple as getting to know a regular member. Drop a PM or a VM! Ask them how they've been or how they are. Even the most quiet of mods are easy enough to talk to. I mean, I randomly struck up a conversation with Windrays when he was still mod and it was just like talking to a regular member. And I'm terrible at talking to people, so if I can do it, anybody can!
I mean Kitsune has to be worried about being turned into a coat, and he stilll pulls it off.
For me personally I'm always fairly active in manga/anime and super active in VG for games I like.
I think, in my omnipotent fashion, that you should express yourself through tangible examples rather than vague concepts.People being silenced and media being moderated to the extent that the people cannot express themselves at all, nor feel safe doing so. Yeah that comparison is nothing like north koreas mindset.
Though please do indulge us as to one you think is more fitting, though I'm not sure you would know any more from that throne of yours.
You know what, I'm not even going to bother responding to all these random lies and accusations. Also, a forum is not a government and the two really can't be compared. So just stop.
Why? Just post one. That's enough to start with.I haven't been vague nor not given examples of this threads usage. But as you would like them delivered to you directly I'll make another list of issues that would fall under this thread and reasons why they can't be done via the other options i have mentioned several times already. I'm also currently pooling in issues from various members to add to this as the next few days goes on so don't expect it all on a silver platter at once as this is a slow and delicate process.
So basically, you can't stomach the entire point of this thread in the first place. You want a place where you can post this stuff, but you still won't.I'm not mentioning names and not mentioning specific situations as im not going to exacerbate it even more. Something that has also been requested to me by those involved due to them being to afraid to discuss it without a backlash.
Those are only visible to you and the staff, and while they act as a warning and deterrent, they also act as a record for us. It's not like we're blind and can't see the dates and look at the posts if we ever have to make a decision concerning them. I don't understand why you ever even look at them.It is also here to discuss infractions you have got that are unfair. Or the possibility of having them removed after a set amount of time, or even just after the person has made significant changes after that event occurred. Permanent infractions are ridiculous and should have an expiration date that doesn't go into years.
Bans are not up for debate. Period.It should be used for the spoiler section only and nothing else. Something i think we should be able to discuss here as well. Not just this option but other rules at your disposal that we might not think fair or misused.
You know what's the problem with these kind of threads, threads where we discuss about the forum or about forummembers. It's that they always end up in what I call "gossip-threads".
Gossip can be fun and is entertaining but it mostly only leads to drama and problems. I don't think that, that's the purpose of this site. Let's discuss manga, anime and the latest news.
And about the mods, everybody knows that there is just one evil mod out there. I don't want to get into a name-calling situation but coughrobbycoughbedfartcough.
Seeking infinity, with all my affinities.
Finding truth, like a falling fruit, my ultimate finality.
Inside my being, the outside, all things; the finite leads the way.
