Maybe he was braking some rules, like constantly referring those who are leery of the new movie as "whiny little bitches", or maybe he was a duplicate account.

I don't know anything about that member or what happened...but we have good mods here. If a mod banned that member, I'm sure they had a good reason for doing so.

Nah, just think a lot of you guy's are irrational, and short sighted. Oh, and in specific cases, such as RamboRaph, Candy Kappa, Leo656, electric_sheep. Delusional as well. You guys make moutains out of mole hills over the stupidest reasons, can't see the forrest through the trees.

^^^^Nope, it definitely wasn't anything to do with this post:P

Although i do confess, I was one of the people who reported him, so...

No, he (Alpha) called other people that. Read my post properly, I never called him, nor said you should cal him that.

A mod would never do that. If someone broke the rules several times (which I'm assuming the guy did), they're gonna get banned. Simple as that.

can we change the MODS to other members that are more responsible maybe Samsteel or Pudinpop or heck make me one at least

No, that's a terrible idea.

I really like the Mods here. They seem like very nice people, and also get serious when they need to. I bet alot of people here will agree with me.

The mods can stay.

all i am saying is its just mean to ban someone thats new and i think we should change MODS every 2 years to make it fair for other member to have the chance to be a mod.

I don't think you understand how the whole mod/banning thing works. A member constantly breaks the rules after being told not to...they get banned. It's not that hard to comprehend. It has nothing to do with being new to the forums, either. You can be a person who's been here for years and still get banned if the mods have a good reason. I've been here for about two years now and have never gotten banned. Why? Because I follow the rules.

I really don't see what's so hard to understand about the whole thing.

Is this gonna be a thing anytime someone gets banned? Someone else asking why?

Also, Powder, f*ck you, that last gif got me, hahahaha.

Just to add, usually the best mods don't ask to be mods, they are asked to be mods.

Aww, I was mentioned. Nifty.

Dude seemed kind of annoying. I think I had maybe one interaction with him, so either he's over-sensitive or I made a big first impression. :roll:

Seemed like a ton of his posts were getting deleted along the way as it was. Can't say I'm surprised. Also, being bad at mixed metaphors is a bannable offense by itself.

The user was banned because he/she broke the rules. It's that simple. Follow the rules and you won't get banned. Not that hard to comprehend, but some people obviously don't get it. And I think the mods here are doing a great job and should stay on.

Yeah, and plus the mods will give you at least 3 chances. He flunked them.

Not exactly a good comparison there.

Just saying that the bad tumblrs are the ones that post 8 gifs in the same post where just one would suffice.

(Sorry to get this thread back on topic :P)
Why does someone need to whine about the mods HERE? I came from another site where the mods are awful, terrible, and act like the whole site is a dictatorship and they're the dictators. If someone says ANYTHING that could in ANY way be misinterpreted as "rude" or some crap like that, poof! They're gone! If someone tries to give them constructive criticism on how awful they're doing with no rudeness at all, poof! They're gone!

The mods on here are amazing. Quit complaining when I had to deal with mods who didn't even know what the f**k they're talking about. Also, no offense, tmntmikey, but you would make a terrible mod. I'm just saying that right now, it's the ugly truth. AlphaAF was most likely banned for being a d-bag, as he has been lately.

Anyway, there's my little rant. I just really needed to vent about that.

tmntmikey, I understand that you're upset that your friend is gone, but as someone who's been a long-time reader of these forums: the mods do a great job. They give up a lot of their personal time to ensure that we all have a community where everybody can come to discuss all things Turtle-related.

The only thing that the mods ask is that people follow the rules - that posters don't name-call and they don't specifically attack other members. It has zero to do with being a new member - temporary sectional bans were issued to many long-time members not that long ago. The mods here are exceptionally tolerant, and posters on this board get a much free-er reign than on other boards, trust me.

People aren't being banned because they're positive about the new movie, or because of who they're friends with - bans and warnings are issued if someone repeatedly ignores the rules. These forums are for everyone, and if a poster continually breaks the rules, it spoils that for the rest of the members.

I don't want to see the entire movie section get locked down again - I know that we all have really strong feelings about this movie and that's great, but speaking for myself, when I feel myself getting angry/frustrated about something on here, I go and cool off and think before I post. Sometimes other members say things that I don't agree with, or that I find offensive - in that case, I just don't post a response to what they've said. We don't have to take on every internet battle.

Nobody has EVER changed someone else's mind by arguing with them on the internet - everybody here has their opinions and they're not going to be changed by anything that anyone else here says. I think the sooner that we accept that, the better off we'll be.

We should all just try to stick to the golden rule, IMO:

I have to say, I've enjoyed this thread just for the gifs... :lol: The reason AlphaAF was banned was because it was a duplicate account of a member here on the forums. Duplicate accounts are very much against the rules... It has Nothing to to do with someone being new or old, anti or pro movie, hardcore or newbie.

Thanks for the votes of confidence, everyone... it's really appreciated. :) I don't want any troubles to pop up in this thread, so I'm just going to close it, now that you have your answer:
