cos I want something done...and I can't do it myself anymore.
someone got banned or something
twentynine may have been abusing his 'position', and basically was 'trolling' the boards. One very annoying evening in particular, I certainly remember.
And there was definitely a period where either Colin was taking the piss or there was a problem with the code where deleting a single post could end up deleting a whole thread.
I don't agree with deletions really.
If you've posted something, then it's posted. It doesn't matter if it looks stupid or unfunny or doesn't make sense. That's part of the fun of the forum, I think.
It should only be deleted if it's considered truly offensive or upsetting or something.
i was only making a guess
It irks me when the mods decide to be 'funny', though it's normally pretty funny in retrospect so...
it was last week or the week before. It wasn't funny. He was deleting his own threads. And him and yesiama (sorry matt, you know that pissed me off) were posting in a blank thread. Lame. There were other things as well, I just remember posting my own thread saying it was stupid and annoying.
toomanykooks just because he hates The Kooks.
for being racist apparently. the decision was met by a tidal wave of indifference and LOL
toomanykooks got banned. Someone asked why. Fishplums didn't know and hadn't been informed so he 'unmodded' all the mods until he found out. Twentynine admitted to doing it because toomanykooks had apparently been a cunt to a load of people and then being unable to get hold of Jon to tell him about it.
Jon obviously didn't feel like giving back mod privileges to those who weren't involved but then maybe he can't do that?
No one knew who had banned him or for what reason. I believe fishplums removed admin privileges because someone had banned toomanykooks without consultation of the other admins. twentynine had done the banning, but fishplums wasn't aware of his admin status. twentynine then removed his admin status and quit DiS.
I think that's how it goes.
i'd love to be an admin though (hint hint)
how high up is that on your wishlist of things to acheive in life?
wherever it is I gave you £8 to go to yet?
but replacing £8 with £5
i have currently raised just over a grand and need two more!!!
you'll never get that much, i'm amazed you got a grand!
do we have any?
could be ages though...
if you want something that urgently just pm one of 'em. what do you need?
but it really amounted to nowt.
Admins are away.
It's only important that the DiS forum be useable during normal working hours.
It wasn't me who banned toomanykooks.
I never banned anyone from a solo decision either.
that's lame. he was pretty funny, and if i was an admin i'd go banning crazy
give neecho his job back
but i support you
but I'm still around a lot.
I promise not to ban anyone.
He's going to discuss the admin situation with Sean sometime this week. New admins to be appointed by the end of it. K
Battle stations are up. I have delta and zeta squadrons on its way to you sir, with sigma and omega surrounding the ship.
i'll go out in a BANNING RAIN OF GLORY like twentynine
