Title: Question for Forum Staff!!!
Post by: The Dark Enforcer on August 05, 2009, 06:04:48 AM
Now I know that over at ClassicNickShows.Info that All staff members can issue Bans. But what about here? I'm already painfully aware of Phantom's ability to Ban members. But can Ed and RP ban Members as well? Please inform me, Forum Staff!

Also, along those lines, could Ed ban RP?

All members of the staff thoughtfully discuss bans before they are put into effect, but only Bryan can actually make them happen. So while Renegade and I don't have the ability to ban members, perse, we still play a part in the process.

Oh, okay Ed. Thanks for explaining that to me. I was under the Impression that the post that You posted a while back that said:

One question. What's the difference between a mod & a super mod (well, besides one rank )? I always wondered that.
Ah, that is a good question. There isn't actually a difference except for the rank name. Although, I could bully around RP if I wanted.  I suppose you could see super mods as "mods of mods."


Implied that:
A. You had the Ability to Ban Members
B. That you could Ban RP if you really wanted to. (Which you don't)

P.S. Entering quotes from scratch gives me a headache. (The Topic that the quote above With Olmec and Ed in it is locked, so I couldn't simply copy and paste)

In the early days of Phantom's temple we had a third mod.

Ed served as a supervisor mod.

Traditionally only admins can issue bans at any forum.

I think was Ed was implying in that old quote, though, was simply that there's basically a chain of command and he's second only to Phantom, with RP being third in line.

Correct.

Ed's higher level comes from the fact that he helped get Phantom's Temple off the ground by advertising from The King's Storeroom. (Again, I don't think I thank you enough, you've been good to me Ed)

As far as the banning process goes. We leave it up to a 3 way vote, and even still, if one of us is undecided about a ban, we hear it out.

The only time we decide on a temp-ban or full-ban is when all three of us agree that it is for the best.

:shock: I never knew that we had a Third Mod!!! He was a Temple Guard ranked Mod, Right? And also, why was he De-Moded?

Yes, The Silver Snake was a Temple Guard in the first few months of our Legends forum. He helped judge the first contest as well.

Somewhere near the end of 2006 or the start of 2007, he mentioned that he did not have enough time to contribute to the forum anymore and politely stepped down from his position as a Temple Guard.

I have not heard from him in quite some time......

But the fact is, Ed's position remains where it is due to his large contributions to the forum and helping us get to where we are today.

I appreciate having both Ed and Renegade as mods, together they both show two different view points for the issues we discuss.

I have to say that I might have partaken into what led to T_E asking about bans. A while back, he found out that I wanted a CNS account, so he PM me to help me out, but eventually I was banned to have an account over there. So I was so confused about it and I just said, "Screw it." It was all because I could download episodes of GUTS to help TBF with his website.

Here, we tend to suspend members only if they directly disobey a warning that we give, so it's not like you guys should be worrying about this too much. Besides, we haven't had to suspend or ban a non-spambot in the last twenty-three months. *knock on wood*

Post by: Toltendo on August 11, 2009, 12:10:08 AM
Well I have to say that this community of members seems to be sincere and have a little-knit group that understand what we're saying without the use of tone of voice with exception of the Jesters Court, but at least we're happy enough to know.

Classic Nick Shows isn't the best website. It seems like tons of people get banned there, and the people don't look too friendly either. :roll:

But that's off topic lol. I believe Kamehameha was the only one on the forums that got banned??

Post by: Toltendo on August 11, 2009, 12:15:18 AM
Well I have read some of the threads at CNS and I have to say that they seem to not be as responsible and have the authoritative to control the system and sometimes its members. It could the lack of relationship between the mod/admin and the member. It could be the reason why we mostly get along together.

I wonder why Bob got banned there tho. Let's go to our referee Moira Quirk to find out. Mo!

Post by: Toltendo on August 11, 2009, 12:27:25 AM
so here is what T_E said about me apparently being banned on CNS on Private Message. I have to say this, but I understand what the problem is at CNS, but I rather not contact the mods/admin over there.

Quote
Look, Toltendo, I'll put it straight and clear! If you're banned on CNS, unless the Mods or Admins said that your ban is for a predetermined length of time, then you're banned for good!

Also, if you're already banned, then why not inform me of this point before I went off and made myself look stupid to 2 of the Mods, including Site Owner Johnny!!! If you've been banned and try to register again, it's called a Ban Evasion, and that'll earn you a Permaban, dude!

First off, Toltendo! I asked BOTH an Admin and the Site Owner if they could make you an account. When they both said no, I responded to you with deep regrets, because I hate to get people's hopes up and then crash them down. When you responded to my messages about being turned down about an account, you were noted as saying:

Quote from: ""Toltendo""
Is there another reason why I was rejected other than former members trying to re-register again who have been banned before?

Thats why I responded so angrily in my last PM to you. Because you made me look bad to Both people whom I had asked to create you an account there.

Wait a minute, Ed! Was I the last non-spambot to have been banned? Also, has it REALLY been that long since I got banned for violating Forum Rule #2?

Quote from: ""Asian Legends Fan""
But that's off topic lol. I believe Kamehameha was the only one on the forums that got banned??

There were 2 more members of this forum who got banned. Jon Pleszewski of the now defunct Shrine of the Silver Monkey fansite, and Aaron Ford from the "Aaron's the Choices Are Yours" fansite that I co-own. Now, IIRC, both Jon and Aaron got banned for habitually violating Forum Rule #2 when they went off and picked a flame war with RP, and for violating an old provision of Forum Rule #4 when they would constantly advertise their websites in new topics on this forum.

Now, Forum Staff, can you Please confirm if I am remembering correctly here?

(Sorry for the Language on this part, but it's warranted)

I have no Fucking clue as to why they banned me! All I know is when I go to their forum, I'm met by this message:

Quote from: ""CNS Forums""
You are banned from this forum. The administrator or moderator that banned you left the following message:

Stay the fuck out

Please direct any inquiries to the forum administrator at [email:j01ed20n]johnnie@classicnickshows.info[/email:j01ed20n].

I've tried to contact Site Owner Johnnie at the Email address above, but the Inbox is broken, and won't accept Incoming emails. I've also tried Contacting a number of CNS Forum Admins and Mods, but to no avail. I want to know which god damn staff member over there banned me, and why the hell they did it.

Also, when I asked our Notundercovercop327 to ask the staff members why I was banned, they went and banned him for a made-up bullshit reason. Their reason was that his account was a dupe account of a Banned member named "Ginger" (Which I don't think fucking exists, BTW)

ALF, Please check your PM inbox for a message from me!!!

Look, Toltendo! By the Second quote from you in this post, I was led to believe that you had already been banned from CNS Forums before I asked you about making an account there. Now, if that isn't the case, then I'm sorry for snapping at you.

Post by: Toltendo on August 11, 2009, 01:17:46 AM
Yeah, I never got banned from CNS nor I was a member over there before they shut down registration due to banned members re-registering. So no worries there T_E.

Whoa, whoa. I have no idea what is going on, here, but this post will be the last one in this thread since it is getting cosmically off-track. I don't think either of you mean any harm here, so calm down. If you really must discuss this other website, do so in the Dark Forest.

That's not all true. If you really want the official breakdown of who's been gone from the site, PM me. Otherwise, this is a really unhealthy topic for the forum's well-being since it dwindles on our lowest points.

Just for the record, Jon was never banned, Aaron was.
(someone PM and correct me if I'm completly wrong about this.)
