Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ever since I have returned Alot has happened in such a small period of time
Phobos Vs Blood God - Round 1
Through agressive moderating to the point of breaking rules to upkeep the order of LO. I would like to publically set things strait. I was warned for 2 things that were questionable in nature as to weather I should be warned or not. Seemed to me as an abuse of power (which alot of members sayed you were like) and in a way it was. But in defence of Phobos I truely believe that an agressive moding is what this forum needs. Phobos Passion for the site was in the right place, just not the words he used sometimes. I felt disrespected and through pm conversations towards Phobos My temper as well as Phobos's showed. Now as a Moderator Phobos should have kept his cool and told me that if I wished to contend the warnings to contact a administrator. But he didnt. Why? Because like the rest of the human population he isnt perfect and anger can cloud our minds and escalate situations beyond managable reasoning. I myself is quite guilty of letting my anger cloud my judgement and so why should I accuse someone else of a fault I have myself.
Things that could have gone better
Phobos: No namecalling and insults, give a little slack if somenes asking nice and sets himself apart from the expected behaviour of spammers/flaming idiots
Blood God: Not being such a stuborn A$$ and been more diplomatic
If these things were done the issue would have probably gone differently
Blood God vs Phobos - Round 2
A friend of mine brought to my attention a post that deaply insulted him that Phobos's negative input was unnessassary as well as could be classified as provoking in nature. Insults of his intelligence were thrown by Phobos. So I informed a Admin and notified him of these insults as well as examples of other unnessasary insults tossed to members. The links I provided didnt work and the admin told me that I was to hit the report button on the posts in question. And so as requested I did.
Things that Happened
Phobos Quit as a Mod
BloodGods thoughts on Phobos
Well in honesty I dont like him alot. I would be lieng if I said I did. but through the whole time I have been here I have seent he things he does to better LO. I have seen the constructive posts as well as the good ideas he has implimented in LO and I have come to respect that aspect of him quite a bit. He has done some great things. As A moderator hes a bit over the top with language and insults. But hes got alot of pressure on his shoulders as well which could very well contest to why he acts in that manner. Doesnt make it right, but If a reason for an action can be found then a change can be implemented to assist in future occurences and better improve oneself
Well in my mind Phobos is an asset to LO and to actually loose him would be quite unfortunant.
Phobos, this is for you
Quite frankly I wanted to see actions taken for you to quit insulting members. But as for your Modship I had no intrest in you loosing it and find it unfortunant that you have quit the position. You were a good mod, just an A$$ sometimes. But hey who isnt sometimes. All I wanted was to see you keep a cool head man.
This is Blood Gods Rant
And in a way an apology to phobos for expecting perfection in an unperfect world.
Eh, he's gonna stay you know. Go back to his stories and all that. I haven't seen any of those, I'm not very old
For ***** sake whats happened to everyone? Have you all lost your balls and started growing breasts? Men, we’r all acting like a bunch of paranoid, hysterical, over-reactive women (and I’m not just on about Blood God here, this comment goes to everyone)! Slap out of it (me too). Its just a friggen site, alight! Sure we all can say that this place means more than just any other site, we’ve made friends here, and good friends too, we have a whole load of laughs and this is where many of us come to ‘chill’ after a hard day or even a regular day. But lets all quit with the belly acheing and stop taking things too seriously, aye?
And btw Blood God, if Phoboss insulted Infrazeal so badly then I’m sure Infrazeal can defend himself (that’s apparently who you were defending according to your post in Phoboss Mod retirement thread)! Same goes to all of us! Sure go ahead and support those you’ve feel have been treated unjustly, but its there business not yours, they are the ones who should take action over it and not you. Anyone seen doing otherwise will be viewed as trying to stir up trouble.
Could someone please tell me the point in this topic? I view it as spam, and inflammatory.
