It has come to my attention that we are playing host to quite a few people that could be classified as...undesirable. The epitome of n00bishness, which was established here in a thread a loooong time ago:
A person that is willfully ignorant and revels in being irritating for irritations sake.
Hence, because of these people, this is a quickstop guide for all members new and old.
1) We are a dictatorship, not a democracy.
A lot of members seem to have this idea that we are at their beck and call. *snigger*. Put simply, read the rules and follow, or dont, and get kicked. Suggestions can be made so long as they are in a polite format. People who post mod-bashing threads (see 5.) are beaten with LARTs, and ridiculed, as are people who commit the sin of wilfull ignorance of the rules, not least because there is a link to them IN EVERY SINGLE POST made by EVERY SINGLE MEMBER.
For the love of god please show this, or right away the mods in general and I in particular will look upon you as the scum on the bottom of our shoe. This means accepting punishments with good grace and learning from your mistakes; not trying to writhe and slip out of them like a possessed cat.
This also extends to the obvious things we're going to get as a forum for a hobby aimed at in particular teenage males; girl troubles since we all have them, the usual stuff about getting a job, etc. Women are to be treated with respect as for the most part they are the fairer sex; this means no bombarding them with PMs asking for their picture or the like.
As far as we are concerned, it doesnt exist here. Any threads will be locked immediately and if deemed neccessary, permanently deleted beyond the Trash Can.
Make sure your post has at least a semblance of an intellect behind it, asking people to post what they think is the best XYZ for abc army or against it, or whatever are simply asking for trouble.
5) Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
I've heard this many many times from people who in their eyes have done nothing wrong, although albeit at times a little indistinctly.
This site is run by one man. Not a corporation. As such, that makes you guests in his house, as it were, and you will abide by his rules or you will be thrown out, just like at that house party when you made drunken advances towards the hosts significant other.
The mods are members who have shown themselves to be the Paragon of the site; the most helpful, knowledgeable, most experienced, etc. We are helpful, have at least some wisdom arrived at by lack of experience, and if asked we will help you, so long as you dont hack us off in the meantime.
Dont hack us off. Follow the rules.
"...And the multitudes didst whoop and holler righteously, for it is written, the Lambs of Blackhat will chase down the iniquitous and go to town on them as they bleat for mercy and crap themselves without measure..."
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
Well put Phobos, however can I add one thing.
6) Post counts mean didley-squat. I dont care if you have 1 post, or 1,000 you will still follow the rules.
By the same count, a member who has 1 post has just as much right to comment on something as a member with 1,000 posts.
Mods are always right! :blush:
Nice to see some new modships going around. Thanks guys!
