I've found out that the tread Bring Back Irma was closed. I would understand that not many fans belive that she would come back as human, but in this tread there's has been a rain of insults and hate. Shouldn't this forum had a respect policy or something?

Some people just can't handle the awesomeness that is Kraang Sub-Prime.

People kept arguing about Irma and if she was going to come back or not. Naturally, the thread had to be closed down. Sorry.

There, I made it.

Are you guys saying that anyone can lock the treads?

No, it's done by Mods. Probably when they get sick of the back-and-forth, or somebody starts threatening to bash in somebody's skull with a crowbar. (Yeah, it happened. The threat, I mean, not the actual violence...)

The only ones who can lock threads are the Leader or Mod of the forums, but also you can ask him if you want a thread to be closed, including your own. In fact, Krang is the only one who can help with this. He helped me with a request to close my own thread after people were bullying me, even a Mod was making fun of me at the beginning, then himself, suggested me to ask Krang for help.

My problem was solved. No more bullies. Thank you, Krang.

Yep, Mods and Admins can close threads down. And it makes sense Cubed would come in here and try to be mod. He does that sometimes.

Well, he's definitely got the nostrils for it. Besides...

He might really be Krang. :teek:

I still want to know why Amaranthus was banned. My thread asking why was locked before I was given an answer.

I have a hunch, I was going to PM you about it because I don't necessarily think it's appropriate to speculate publicly, but apparently you've got that feature turned off.
On that topic though, you should just PM a mod if you're so curious.

Amaranthus was banned? Really?

What's he done lately?

Not sure what Amaranthus did nor do I care. He was banned for breaking the rules. It happens.

Yeah, it was turned off at one point for whatever reason. Don't remember doing it. I think it's turned on now, so go right ahead.

I'm a little curious too, since he was PMing me a few days ago. Feel free to PM me with the details, I'd like to know.

Amaranthus was a bully. I was trying once to be nice to her ( Amaranthus is a girl) but she was really impossible to talk. She deserved and some of her comments were making fun of another's person learning disability, for example. She is gone for good. This forum doesn't need bullies.

Umm.....what? Amaranthus is a male. It clearly states that on his profile.

Really? He never told me that and never noticed his profile... Surprise! Well, doesn't matter now; he is gone for good. Then he was an inmature little boy, not a man.

Given that he was all of 16 years old, calling him a man would indeed be something of a stretch.

Some 16 years old teens are mature beyond their years. Have you heard of the teen activist Malala from Pakistan? She is mature beyond her years.

Amaranthus is definitely a dude, & I'm sure they'll be back. While he would say some pretty not-cool things, "bully" isn't the word I'd use. You call everyone a bully. :tlol:

Am's ban is probably only temporary, but he definitely could be an a**hole at times like so many others.

Even if it's not, he'll just create another account and come back as someone else.

If a new guy starts threatening to bash in Leo656's head with a crowbar or put his foot up somebody's ass, we'll know who it is. :tlol:

How hard is it to simply not get banned? I've been here for 11 years since 2004 and I haven't been banned once in all the time I've been here.

You say that like people are getting banned left & right, which is hardly the case.

Not yet. But it starts with a few.

When they took away SuperGoku, I said nothing.
When they took away Davetello, I said nothing.
When they took away Amaratheus, I said nothing.
And when they came to take me away, there was nobody left to stop them.

Actually, I've labelled a few of you guys as my "Ban Barometers." As long as you're still allowed to post, I know I'm safe. :tlol: :trazz: :twink:

I think Goku is actually Genysis from Cyberdyne... or maybe the consciousness of the Borg Collective.

To be fair, the things he said that piss people off seem to come from a place of ignorance and not knowing any better, not malice or ill will.

He can be funny at times like when he was raging about Hun being Asian. I got a kick out of that.
