What happened to the Mods? did they actually go on vacation or are they just taking a break from the forums? are they ignoring everything or what? Just someone give me a straightforward answer instead of spamming me about useless **** or acting like a 'super mature 12 year old' and doing dumb stuff like saying I'm a child and should take a vacation cause I asked a simple question and spoke against the oppressor and stuff blah blah yadda yadda just answer me and go.

Its summer. Most of them are likely on vacation.

They're at Hawaii sitting on beaches taking in the sunset. Others have gone to the carribean or Florida. Also many of them are adults with their own families and kids.

Vacation time.

They're older with real responsabilities, Krang doesn't care enough to come either for the same reason to get to know users and be able to name new mods who can actually do the job that an active forum requires so all hell breaks lose in one section.


I'm surprised knowing this that it hasn't spread to other sections, now that would be really bad. if it spread into other sections because there is no one to stop it so let's hope it just doesn't spread into the other sections into the forum and make this the wild west since there is nothing anyone can do.

Is it really that bad? For the most part it's just folks goofing off. Any fights happen, then resolve... Why do we need mods right now? Nothing too crazy has happened, aside from some fun **** posting. We're okay, we're grown ups, we're fine.

All the TMNT sections have fairly good posts except the Platinum Dunes section. I don't see any bad threads posted in the general, Nick, 4kids, or comic sections at all.

Likewise the TV, current events, videogame, comic, everything else etc. are all fine too.

Where are you guys seeing bad threads outside of you-know-where?

But that's ALL it is. Goofing off occassionaly is perfectly fine (y'know, if it's actually funny) but some of the cob nobblers here make it their mission to turn every thread into a cuhrazzy wacky joke time.

Then you have the ultra serious political threads where fights are breaking out constantly. It sours the mood when you start to hear everyones dumb opinions in one thread and in the next wondering if Will Smith should be in TMNT 3. Papenbrook needs to be f*cking banned too. Just thought I'd say that.


I'd go as far to say that this place is pretty much unfixable. Krang isn't going to come back and take the time to elect new mods, or atleast I don't think he will.

I'm not excluding myself from the problem. I've gone a little too far in some places, and I admit that. I think you can too, especially with the BvS thread. Some of the sh*t throwing (over capesh*t) in there was uncalled for, and you know it.

I've looked through a lot of older threads here from the 2001-2010 years and they're a lot different. Everyone seemed to be a lot less cynical and only poked fun at each other. Everyone seemed like they were friends for the most part. Maybe I'm wrong, and maybe it's always been the way it is now, but that's the vibe I got.

Everyone tries so hard these days, trying to carve an internet personality instead of just chilling and hanging out (Mew, Mewtwo, and Etsy). I don't know if what I wrote made any sense, but it's just the way I feel, and attempting to write out those feelings.

EDIT- Cubed has a point. My post is generally directed at the non-tmnt parts of the forum, but I guess it can apply

Most of them are 30 year old adults now. In the early 2000's, well...that was 16 years ago. Many of them were teenagers then and then were 20 year olds and so on and so forth. I was one of those people but I'm still around.

Makes sense. The kids from the 80's and 90's of the original TMNT fad then came online as teenagers in the early 2000's, and then from 2000-2010 or so became adults and moved on with their lives.

That's why you look at the ages of all the original fans they're around 25-30+ year olds now.

Times a bitch. I can't believe 2006 was really 10 years ago. I can't even look at the original star wars cast today without tearing up. Can you believe in a few years time we'll have no WW2 vets? Crazy. If I could, I'd live from 2001-2011 and just repeat those years over. Goddamnit Cubed you're actually making me cry.

You'll find that was the case on most corners of the web.

The world, & internet, has changed a lot since then, the youth especially.

You've got those in your age group who just discovered 4chan, all in a race to see who can be the most like Filthy Frank, not realizing that cancer ass personality exists to mock & profit off idiots like them, not encourage similar behavior. Others of my generation are on that polar opposite Tumblr SJW ish, so you wind up drowning in a sea of extremes, which sucks. Normal ass geek types aren't so common these days, folks always feel compelled to align themselves with a vocal outfit of doofs. Nobody is pushing the envelope or crushing oppression, they're just making society worse. :tlol: The only other third party with decent numbers is that of the average dope, who asks obvious/stupid/easily Googled questions or states opinions as facts, then gets huffy when called out for it. Back then, it was mostly reclusive types who turned to the web for interaction. Lonely nerds looking for like-minded individuals. When you're in need of friends, you've got every reason to keep it mellow. Now, everyone's on their phones all the time, so you get many different kinds of people interacting online, bringing about certain tensions (but also sometimes adding diversity, which can be welcome).

+ you find a lot of outright mentally unstable people who are either lacking in self awareness, outwardly hostile, really creepy, or all of the above. It can be hard to tell who has legitimate issues or is just a troll at times.

I couldn't agree more. I'm pretty happy none of the reddit/youtube "dank meme culture" reached my small, tightly knit school. In a couple months I'm going to high school and to be completely honest, I'm f*cking worried. I thought that sh*t was funny 2 years ago, and suddenly NOW it's big?

There's really no good content. Every non-gaming based channel talks about "creating content" yet all they do is talk about youtube drama. It's dumb.

The only channels that I watch and look forward to are Redlettermedia, Ashens, Cinemassacre, and Jontron. Besides those guys that's about it. Sure there's the occassional tutorial/educational video, documentaries, and music but I don't think those would count as "channels".

Are you me? :tlol: Same, all the way. I have a bunch of other subs, of course, but none of them are on that same level, really. Little bits & bobs of music, beta/glitch material, etc. YT "personalities" are mostly a total cancer.

Great minds think alike dude.

I've been thinking of starting a youtube channel, but not until I have a good idea of what I'd be doing. I think if I had good cameras, sets, and put work into writing scripts I can do something pretty cool.

A good example of youtube being used to it's full potential is Jesse Ridgeway (aka mcjuggernuggets). He staged for nearly 5 years an entire story that revolved around him and his family. 1-2 one hour videos a day, all planned, all plotted, with character developement and foreshadowing and everything. The quality of his series only went up as he got more popular. His final video came out a couple weeks ago (so I can't say I look forward to watching him), where "he" as a character had a final showdown witth his father. It was creative and nothing matched or matches up to it. If you're bored, and have a day to kill, look up his channel and click on the "Psycho Series Playlist", which has all the important episodes.

So, you're not even in high school yet?

You read a lot older, but maybe that's why you're suggesting the forum needs the moderation.

I guess, if we're being really honest, I'm sick of the policing this generation wants so badly. My generation fought against a police state, and feared the potential of a 1984; y'all are clamoring for it, which is baffling (no not all, but there's a frighteningly loud percentage).

Yeah, I go off, but who hasn't? I fought in the BVS thread, not so much because he liked a thing, and I didn't, but because he's argumentative and so am I, and we happened to hold opposing views. It happened. So what? No one is getting hurt, really. He'll come back at some point, or he won't. The movie looked stupid, he didn't agree, the movie opened, He was wrong, the end. 27% is, well, 27%.
It's a movie, though, ya? I'm sure he'll get over it, if he hasn't already. He's still a funny guy with razor sharp wit. I'm still an overtired SOB. He still has an account.

If you're not keen on political debates, cool, that's alright, but the thing is, everyone here, who lives in the US, will or will someday have a vote. It's way more important, to know what's happening in you country, than what's happening to Bayturtles, Paul Feig, or at Comic-con. You can say the system's rigged, and to an extent it is, or that it doesn't really change anything, and maybe some feel that way, but the truth is, The world you're looking at today, compared to 16 years ago, is different, primarily because of the politics, of the last 16 years. The snark is just a symptom of a diseased culture.

We joke about Brexit, about Google searches the following day primarily being "What does it mean to leave the E.U." We're not that different. Cops are shooting innocent folks in the street, and half the world is playing Pokemon.
That really happened.

We're not nice, anymore. We're mean bullies, angry and malcontent. Mods won't "fix" that, other than to just silence non-conformists. No ones's going around posting hate speech or porn, or anything truly disturbing (okay maybe the Bugs bunny gif...definitely yeah...) but honestly, with so little TMNT to talk about, what's left to talk about?

We've all talked it to death, which if I had a guess, would be the most likely reason the old members are gone.

The only channels that I watch and look forward to are Redlettermedia, Ashens, Cinemassacre, and Jontron.

I used to be really excited about new JonTrons, but my interest in him has deflated slowly but surely... I suffered through that Star Wars series he did, and was excited to see him return to his core show, except now his budget is way higher than it was before, and it's gotten to his head.
So instead of a goofball and his bird sitting in a chair, making commentary, it's now huge skits where's he's dragging live animals around and bringing in other actors... it's not as stupidly simple as it used to be.

It's funny how most of the YT channels I pay attention to are video game-related, even though I really don't play video games at all. PBG, Eggbusters, etc. Their commentary is always really funny though.

As for the quality of the Technodrome - I don't think it'll ever recover. We've grown way too used to sh!tposting in recent years - especially in the PD section - and when the whole community is ready and willing to partake in that, I think all hope is lost. Sometimes we're pretty good about moderating when a joke or trend has gone too far, but sometimes we aren't.
Like the "Should ___ be in TMNT 3" threads. The first few were pretty funny, and it should have ended there. But then it turned into a Reddit situation where everyone (myself included) tried to cash in on the meme/trend and be Mr. Funny for a day. That shouldn't happen.

Oh, absolutely. I think the mods are mostly needed to keep Youtube/download links squelched, ban Goku's reincarnations, take care of crap like when Megashredder went on his little nerd rampage of "viruses" and whatnot, and step in to ban members who post death threats and whatever.

None of that happens very often, so other than that, self-policing. Which honestly sounds like the current situation already.

Netkeeper, take a breather, man. Put Mew on Ignore and relax if you're able. The kid's seriously not worth the trouble.
Unfortunately today I have an abundance of energy with a horrible mood on top of it and no amount of expression of that anger has gotten me to the exhaustion point.

Not for the lack of trying, mind you. I've been screaming my ass off all day and not a passout in sight.

Netkeeper, if he bothers you put him on your block list so you dont have to read his post. That way you coexist and you cam ignore him. If one of you gets in trouble it will not be because of irritating one another. There are people on here who intentionally bait and cause havoc here. The PDgate we have gone through shows that. What about the people who intentionally do things? Do they get bannwd for a short term? Mew wants to fit in and is quite ignorant in general not just his age in comparison to us in college and beyond. Please, you two just ignore each other.

Really liking how from somewhere on Page 2 up to now, a majority of the discussion has been focused on Mew. It really is quite... something.

And the fact that he's apparently made 80+ many of which I bet were ridiculous posts within his time back? Good freaking gravy.

https://s32.postimg.org/helwssxw5/MEW.png It really is a nice option to have.

Well, there's probably no point in saying this now, but I'm sure the Mods have their reasons for whatever it is they're not doing. I'm guessing currently it's just them staring at their screens for a bit, wondering if they should even bother. Eventually they might realize they already had a rough enough day, and figure that what they chose to do may not be enough to satisfy our needs. Only until the largest problem has been made clear over the majority of the forums, will something possibly be done. Until then, everything else is petty nonsense.

Of course, I don't exactly know ^that^, so I may be wrong.

The thing is with trolls is the more you respond to them the more they will troll. If you ignore them they will get bored and stop or move on to anther forum. Just some food for thought.

I joined in early 2009. At the time, Cyber stuck to the TMNT sections iirc. And people only criticised him for constantly reminding everyone that a couple of FW episodes were yet to be released on DVD. And also criticised him for making threads where he answered his own questions. But no one accused him of trolling or hated his guts. He stood out but just as a stubborn guy. It was not until the Michael Bay films coming along that he began posting about real life issues and such.

Cyber was once a full blown heel, the biggest one on these boards, but his heel work was getting so amusing that now he's basically a face.

If only you could be reprimanded and change, yourself. Go look in the Disintegrator Unit, it's littered with your godawful threads and sh*t posts. You're not here to talk TMNT, but to push your agenda. That makes you worse than CyberCubed or shredder orokusaki in my book.

So yeah, I would have respect for you if you weren't a troll. Also, you probably lost everyone's respect with your very own drama queen act when you "quit".

Hey, it's never too late to fix that.

And? What does this have to do with the situation at hand?

If you are trying to use the "backseat modding" argument, it's not going to work. I'm not trying to be a mod. I'm just calling you out on your unexplained behavior.

Ghostbusters thread, you and snake in there about a month ago. I'll gladly include a link to it. A few Nick threads, you call out name-calling for whatever reason. Need I go on? Sorry Papen, but it's the same song and dance with you: you go into one of your older threads or wherever has the most attention, you call out the bad act, then you either can't argue or simply report it. Then in the meantime, you make another redundant Nick thread or an issue that doesn't need to be discussed, which either gets ignored, disintegrated, or something along those line.

I understand if it gets out of hand, but based on what you do, it's rather obvious you're trying to back seat mod. Your post history can easily show that. :ohwell:


I don't care that you don't like me. I just want basic respect.

Very subjective, but if you want respect, contribute worthwhile discussion. No SJW talk, no calling out "inappropriate" language, etc. I'm unsure of a majority of reputations' here, but you aren't winning the Noble Prize with your behavior.

No. Not until you get reprimanded for your actions, will you start to change.

As mentioned already, this is hypocrisy. Maybe not in terms of actions, but at least Nines does acknowledge what he does as far as I'm aware. If it bothers you so bad on posts, then put them on ignore instead of being the parent, I can fight my battles for certain and so can everyone here. Enough making a mountain out of a mole hill. :ohwell:

I swear this thread is going to get locked if this keeps up.

This is unbelievable. It really is.

At this point, this will be my last post on this thread. I am tired of arguing with people, because I know it will be pointless in the end. Oh well. Here it goes.

ToTheNines, I feel sorry for you. I really do.

GoldMutant, your argument doesn't make any sense.

You said that I can't call people out on their behavior, or express my beliefs. However, you also said that people should debate, which is what I am doing right now. (Unless that was your intention all along.)

Most of the threads that were locked/disintegrated were without my involvement. I think I was only directly involved in about three/four threads. Out of a hundred of those threads.

Any way, I am done with this thread.

Don't worry, when BayTurtles 3 gets confirmation it'll be back in action. :lol:

In all seriousness, considering the PD section went down south with several threads locked/disintegrated, that's clean. Mew, Esty and Goku are gone, with the latter two possibly up to a scheme (Mew I don't feel is involved) against the drome. Really, the only threads as far I'm aware still active with heated discussion are the Ghostbusters remake and the DCEU threads. Most of the others are down in disintegration, so no.

At this point, this will be my last post on this thread.

I'm sorry Papen, but it's by your obligation to view these threads for your perspective or create rather annoying threads.

I am tired of arguing with people, because I know it will be pointless in the end.

I get how you feel, but when it's a post I can see flaws in, I'm going to find the truth and/or attempt to argue against that point. I may get out of hand at times though, that I acknowledge, it's happened recently with a good friend of mine. :) We made up either way, but I know I can be wrong at points. Now then, let's get into this so we can stop this nonsense (because I guarantee a lock is coming):

ToTheNines, I feel sorry for you. I really do.

He's done absolutely nothing wrong, it's you making a big deal out of nothing again. Only thing TTN's does that can be overzealous is his war against Cube, otherwise he's the same guy, passionate on what he likes while offering the occasional sarcastic remark. Besides TTN's arguments with Cube, what has he done warranting sympathy when he's pretty much chill?

GoldMutant, your argument doesn't make any sense.
Then let me correct myself as I tend to over-analyze:

You said that I can't call people out on their behavior, or express my beliefs. However, you also said that people should debate, which is what I am doing right now. (Unless that was your intention all along.)

My issue, as well as many I'd presume, with you Papen is repeating the same song and dance. Look at plastron; she's a SJW but doesn't go that crazy (off the top of my head), hell if I don't agree with her, I still see her points and even get a chuckle out of some her stuff. I personally encourage debate, but if it stems from "He was mean," then you honestly don't have a reasonable argument. You on the other hand don't, in fact:

Most of the threads that were locked/disintegrated were without my involvement. I think I was only directly involved in about three/four threads. Out of a hundred of those threads.

Most of these threads you sparked were irrelevant and/or completely oblivious. For threads merely locked, there's your goodbye thread, your body type thread and that's it. For disintegration... ooh boy, "Who was Driven off the Forums?", "Masculinity Favored Over Feminism," the bathroom thread (it's been retitled), "Choo-Choo!," and Nick TMNT being sexist. In addition, you made several irrelevant Nick threads, the fat-shaming thread, the body type thread and repeating threads previously made. You've made a few decent threads, but primarily the average to awful outweighs it.

Obviously, some spiraled into mayhem, but considering some of it stems from you... you get the idea. :ohwell:

You are the same age as me I'd think, or around there (I don't know), but my point is you don't get the hint. Unless it's an easy topic to discuss such as Nick's version of Mutagen Man, you don't comprehend that your views are calling for venom to be struck. We're going to fight on here at points, either accept that and put people on ignore or just take a break. I'm done discussing this.

Just so you know though, I admire your heart and have wanted to legitimately talk to the person behind this account, but you ignore it unless you PM me or others apologizing. Please Papen, just get the idea; I'd presume others have said to knock off the agenda as it won't be discussed here, but I'm saying this as a person who wants to be a friend: adapt or perish/leave. If you don't do either and continue what you do, don't say I (or others for that matter) didn't warn you. With that:

Any way, I am done with this thread.

(deep breath) I feel better now; if there's no further issues, let's hopefully get back on topic for a future update; if not, cue the lock.

You say this every single time one of your points is refuted, you know. It's only "getting worse" when you're proven to be one of our sites more contentious members. You know damn well by now that your shtick is counterproductive to its alleged cause, but you persist, & that makes you look like a troll.

I don't know if Papen truly sees trouble on the 'Drome or if she enjoys stirring it up herself (as Powder says, the last two pages are a result of her words).

She has contacted me once, maybe twice out of the blue asking me to stop bullying her (I may have been hard on her but I don't think I've harassed her or anything). I just went, 'yeah, whatever', but I almost think that she was trying to instigate me.

Okay, enough's enough...


I want this 'Papenbrook vs the world' battle to stop right now. I've said my piece to her, and now I want you guys to back up and give it a rest. As someone mentioned, there's been far too many threads being derailed and ending up in the Disintegrator Unit.


As for mew/etsy/goku/whomever else, this is a sticky situation right now that we're trying to deal with. They've got a bunch of extra accounts, and the mods and I are slowly going through new and low number counts and cleaning out the accounts.


Thunderman612, I will give you this one warning.

Goku, Etsy and Mew all got banned because of their behavior and trolling the forums. Also for harassing members on the forums and being a general nuisance. That is why you received the harsh response from many members in this thread. It started with 'relaying information' for banned members. Next thing we know, they're causing problems All over the forums, and they get warned and then banned. I have closed at LEAST 30 accounts between the three of them, and will continue to do so tonight and in the future until we finally settle the IP Ban issue.

I sincerely hope that if you are NOT them, you will give up on relaying their information and getting yourself into a bad spotlight.

If you ARE one of them...
