Leaving

The problem we have is some members post well, but then begin to take liberties and think they can ignore the rules just because they've made ten topics today.

Yes of course we love having all the members we do, and having ones that love being here and posting is great and really lucky on our part. All we ask is that you dont make a mess of the forums. Posting porn, swearing, unneccessary comments or bumping ancient topics. That pretty much covers it.

Yes the bumping rule is the least bad of those, and yes it may seem a bit petty to you, but if we let people reply to topics that were years old, often with useless replies, we'd just end up with a big mess.

You were warned several times about this, and a few days ago I warned you again. You had obviously ignored what we'd told you to do (if you didn't understand you would have asked). In line with our moderation guidelines I gave you a three-day suspension, which should have given you the time to read the email I sent reminding you of the rule you have repeatedly broken.

You only have a 60% warning, next time you bump it will be a two-month suspension, the time after that it will be a permenant ban. That is how these forums work, and you have known that for a long time.

One thing leads to another. If we'd let you continue, other members would think they could get away with bumping, and breaking other rules and ignoring the staff. We can't let that happen.

If you don't wish to abide by our rules then you should leave, as you have chosen to do. Of course we'd prefer you to stay and post, but if you just keep on breaking the rules and ignoring us then there's nothing we can do. We don't want you to leave, but equally we don't want you to ignore us.

Have I broke the rules? Indeed. Too much. Have I ignored staff? No. Never. Its all because I dont watch post dates (all my bad) and I think its not quite fun to be afraid of getting banned everytime you post. The forum I joined doesn't have any time limits of posting and they dont make a huge mess up here either. Well anyways have fun. Ill be visiting you by times. I had fun here. Cya!

In my book, breaking the rules more than once is ignoring staff. It doesn't take a second to realise that going back to page 3 of a subforum and posting in a topic there isn't going to be an active one.

If you had a problem with it, say so, thats what we're here for. If you think the rule is a big tight, say so, only we can do something about it.

We are currently in the process of reviewing all our rules and moderation guidelines. It has been suggested that old topics (more than a month or so) should be locked, and bumping is not allowed in them unless that topic is ######. That way there is a clear distinction between topics that are useful to bump and those that are not. Any suggestions people?

And besides you have to come back to check your leaving topic don't you? ;)

Indeed

Gerard. Youre right. The topics that are old really should be locked so it wouldn't be no trouble of bumping topics. I think thats a major idea. Yeah maybe being lousy is ignoring the staff but who knows. Cya ( until you post here again =P )

Doing what told not to do = ignoring :P

Yeah the only reason we haven't locked all old topics is because you never know somebody could post something useful in them. But if it's that useful, then a new topic would be fine. I think only some ###### p|nned topics should be left open for public posting. Staff are currently discussing this amendment.

Word. The staff run the site and make the decisions. The rules are being amended to make them easier to understand for new members and changing the ways that bumps are dealt with.

We don't want a topic from over a year ago in which a member asks why the characters in Vice City don't have sex. There is no need to reply to this ancient topic, especially not with something such as "j00 are t3h n00b cause tere 1s n0 s3x in vice cIty!"
