I'm not quite sure, i'm search through his posts and I can't see anything that breaks that rules.

I suppose it's because he tends to be a bit, lets say, critical towards people sometimes.

I don't see anything that warrants a ban unless it was deleted. I hope he gets to come back, I like his posts.

He is a total jerk and has insulted most of us more than once uncalled for. I am genuinely surprised when he is nice. He contributes to fandom so he will get a short leave and be back and act as usual with the temp ban not changing the poster for the better. Its happened a couple of times with long-time members here in the last year.

Kinda surprised, as well. I see nothing in his recent posts that warrants this, but that might mean it's been deleted for clean-up purposes.

He probably did something that caused him to get temp banned. He'll be back, and hopefully he won't do anything to warrant this again, though I haven't seen anything recently that would warrant this. Yes, he can be harsh at times, but most of the time, he's a pretty cool guy. I hope he does come back because his art is awesome.

Mayhem
04-20-2014, 05:47 PM
I was only asking because, like others have said, I couldn't see anything in his recent posts that would have justified any sort of ban. Unless whatever it was got deleted. Hence the question.

Yeah, Trick could sometimes be harsh, but then again, there were a lot of people being harsh in the Movie Thread with the whole positive and negative thing. That just got out of control over there.

Whoa, really? That sucks. I know the tone on the movie threads got pretty... intense, but I didn't notice anything particularly ban-worthy from Powder, myself. And there was plenty of rudeness and obnoxious behaviour from some of the pro-movie posters, so if Powder was banned over that situation then I sure hope some of them were too.

I hope the ban's short-lived, though. He's a good dude and contributes a lot. Especially his awesome art projects. Those'll be missed.

TrickorTreater got into it with some posters, but it was hardly one-sided, and he at least backed up his points/arguments pretty well. More than I can say for some of the people he was arguing with. Again - there were plenty of rude, insulting comments from the pro-movie crowd, so if Powder and TrickorTreater are being singled out, that doesn't seem fair.

But it was just a pretty bad situation all around, honestly. Hopefully everyone can cool off and the bans will be lifted.

I saw this coming, he could be very passionate on his topics. powder being banned I could see that happening as well. Not afraid to speak his mind.
His art was awesome, he single handedly kept the art forum from dying at time :lol:

hopefully they both are only a temp ban.

Well, I do find the whole thing strange.

So someone can call you names (like being called a Dastard but with a B...did that so I'm not cursing and don't want to get banned) or disregard your opinions on a movie by going 'why are you complaining about a kid's film? Don't you know people are dying in Afghanistan and yet you can't stop harping on an upcoming kid's film'... and then bring up their brother dying over there...(and I'm not mentioning the folks who did that, cause I'm not trying to start trouble). But they don't get banned or even warned...

And yet some of these other people get banned? (and I did get a warning, and all I did was either defend myself or debate about a film without putting anyone down...which I thought was the point of a forum). But hey, it's their website not mine. I'm just easing off/away from it.

Now I am not even sure to post anywhere, wondering if somehow that will get myself banned/warned/etc...and Powder always seemed cool with me. Same with Trickortreater, when others did much worse and yet nothing happened. Again, am NOT trying to start things. Just stating MY OPINION on the matter.

To give further clarification to the situation:

Powder was one of several people that has been warned and/or given a two week ban due to the fighting in the movie section. Yes, a ton of cleanup has taken place... all parties on both sides are being looked at for their participation, no matter what their side was in the fighting.

These bans are only supposed to be limited to the movie section. Due to technical limitations, the bans were only able to be issued as forum-wide. Krang will assist in adjusting these and future two-week bans so that the parties whom have been on full bans will be reduced to sectional bans.


Nobody should be afraid to post in that section, or Any section. The staff here is not trigger-happy when it comes to bans. These two week bans are last-resort efforts to get users to abide by the forum rules. If we can avoid banning people, we won't ban them. We WANT people to be able to post where they want without worry of someone attacking them for their opinion.

Are the bans/warnings done? No... cleanup is still taking place, and the staff is still discussing things. Should people be nervous? Of course not... Everyone who's been warned or given a two week ban are always welcomed back to post in the forums, we just ask them to think about what they post a little more so we can avoid situations like this again.

This whole debacle in the movie section has been very difficult, personally. I haven't had to deal with so much fighting and issuing bans since the dark Leo nonsense from the 2003 series... I do not like banning people, period. But this situation in the Movie section forced our hand, so to speak.


And please, don't get into a pro/anti Powder quibble on here. We've had enough fighting here on the forums..

They're talking about when Leo went all angsty in season 4 of the 2K3 series. Apparently there was a fight about it. Wish I had been around then. I think I was lurking, but I don't really remember it. I agree thought that the fighting in the movie forum was out of control with how people were reacting. I'm glad it got cleaned up and hopefully things will settle down. This place should be where everyone is allowed to post their opinions without getting attacked for it.

Well said, Bubbly and Machi. I can honestly say I like everyone on these forums, and wish more energy would be devoted to having civilized conversations when differences of opinion crop up from time to time. Doesn't matter who you are, your opinion deserves to be heard, as well as respected. All the insults and name calling in the world aren't going to change the other person's mind. Why not listen to each other, for a change? We might learn something. Might actually make a few new friends too.

Powder was a menace on this site. So condescending and full of himself. It was a well deserved ban and a long time coming. He must have been warned a lot though cause leading up to the ban he really toned down his snarky behavior. trickortreater I understand as well but that's a little iffy. He is just very opinionated. He could sometimes come off as rude, but it wasn't blatant like powder. Where he would go into threads just to say something condescending. Either way I like the direction in which this site is going. It should be a fun place where people can openly discuss the turtles and not have to worry about being patronized. And might I add Jester has been nothing but class since getting his role as a mod. I must commend him for that.

EDIT: Reading through this I realize its only a two week ban. The fact that it is a two week ban should be considered nothing short of a miracle for him. I will welcome back trickortreater he's a nice dude just very opinionated like I said. I hope powder gets some help and comes back an actual nice person, and contributes to the forum in kind, helpful, and genuinely intrigued manner.

wut. Powder almost always contributes to the forum in a kind, helpful and intrigued manner. You're the guy who made all the 'boycott Nick' threads. And I hardly ever go in the movie sub-forum, so I have no idea who it is, but from what I can gather, he insulted more people than Powder.

Even before then, whenever something official or unofficial about the movie was released, it seemed everyone would start an argument about it. Both supporters and non-supporters. Some arguments, especially after the trailer was released, were quite entertaining. But some people ragged on other people's opinions and even insulted them (both pro-movie and non-pro-movie people). It would happen all the time, it seemed like, and that's why they ended up basically temporarily shutting down the movie thread and, I guess, temporarily banning people.

A two-week vacation will probably help cool their jets and they'll be a bit more understanding and will probably evade more direct levels of snark and bait from those that ticked them off. We have ignore list functions

That said, I wish the ignore list didnt come with the option to still read what the blocked person is saying. The temptation is always there to get riled up

Not a big fan of Powder but he does a rep here and I'd hate to see him lose good standing with people over a movie that is, to be quite frank, way out of our desiganted age range

Wow, that's a bit much... Seems to me you've got a stick up your ass about something he's said and all you can see is faults in everything be posts... Now I have seen you try to bait him in the past and overspill discussions from one thread to another in an attempt to get a rise out of him. And now this personal attack seems like you've got a vendetta against him. Think you need to read back what you said about Powder and look in the mirror.

I promised myself I wouldn't get involved, but when I see people like Powder who actually contribute to the fandom on a temp ban and guys like him above spewing out what he does as consistently as he does, I can't hold my tongue.

Powder is probably reading this thread right now and you can contact him over at deviantart. You people act as if he's fallen off the face of the Earth or something. Two weeks will fly by.

Powder contributed art for Andrew's Mirage/Image comics and he brought the awareness of the term casuals to the fandom, so he has contributed more to this fandom than about 70% of the people here.
