'New' rules regarding agression - discussion

[Discussion started in this post] -moderator


'you're gay' is not necessarily an insult! It can be true, and be used as a mere statment! so ha! ><

I'd like to know why Lightwing is able to decide upon new rules for the entire forum when he is only a moderator of the fan fic section.

Has this been official rules yet or is it just a motion?

I find it strange cause only 2 of 5 mod/adm/keppforumcleanguy have been speaking about it.

I would just like to add i disagree with these rule//motion (that does not mean im gonna be a rebal or whatever) since almost everyone is breaking this rule all the time.

Yes, this is on my mind too.

Lightwing simply made a suggestion to do something, I agreed with it and I'm carrying it out. Simple as that.
As for the other mods, I'm currently the only active supermod and Darkflame agrees with the rules as well.

These rules will be enforced, no rule breaking.

I personally don't think this is the strangest thing to ask from members here.

I have a question, what if someone is being gay?
Am I allowed to reveal to the public that the person is being homosexual?


Anyway, I hope everyone is aware that we would not have these annoying new rules if it weren't for obras' stupid whining.

His ruining of this place is now complete, congratulations.

(i know atre and lighwing thought of this independtly, but like atre herself said, she did it because "certain members" were complaning)

The fact that we are protesting benevolence towards one anothers shows just how valuable these rules are.

I have spent 7 years on the LBA forums and I know what aggression can do when it gets out of control.

Why not? Gay people are fun
Besides that, I think "you're gay" is a totaly irrelevant insult and should actually be responded to with mockery than with a !warned!.

I haven't done this persé because of Obras, although I think the degrading attitude of the forum has been caused (in)directly by his whining.
I just hope there is some way to bring the forum back on its track and since the previous requests for less swearing were ignored all together, I have to put force behind it.

Normally I'd prefer to remind people that the forum is what the members do with it, but I noticed there are too many immature people who haven't grasped the concept of responsebility yet, thus, I'm giving friendly, yet demanding hand.

It all comes down to normal civilised behavior. An occasional 'idiot' should be normally acceptable but I fear even that falls under these rules.
I hope to loosen these rules quickly since this also gives me more to do, but for now we'll just have to see.

If someone IS gay, then there's no problem in revealing it. But there's a problem in doing, what you were continuously doing - saying that I'm gay, although I'm not. Revealing the truth is good, revealing something that isn't true is not good. That's all.

Btw this thread is so gay. Does that fall into the "Not every form of cussing will be banned. Non-attacking swearings are still fine." or shall I get banned? Just making clear, because these rules can be abused either ><

Insulting threads is not included in these rules, so you will suffer no consequences for that. ^_^

Whilst I believe that the rules did not need a revision - I feel these additions are fair and not too heavy handed. We should all have no problems abiding by these rules, and as such we should also leave the policing of the forum to the mods once again. Hopefully this will mean a change for the better for the MBN

imo it's so sad that you have to make a sticky tread about this. People SHOULD be able to think that way themself. But well, as far as I can see, they aren't. That makes me sad

The feeling is NOT mutual. I would nearly break these rules to express my dislike of this reply. The word "hypocrit" comes up in my mind.

Don't sweat, that's just fine. I'm not going to randomly ban people because of simple swearings or stating an opinion with a swearing. Personal attacks IMO can be a problem.

Yeah, I agree with you. We have to make the MBN good again.

Obras I get the feeling the replies you get to that post ^^^ won't be too good. Personally I don't mind the new rules, as long as I can still swear when I do then tis ok by me.

a) I just like to confirm I agree 100% with what Atresica said at the top.

b) Calling things gay is sooo 1999, you bunch of straights!

Even if these rules aren't well recognized by all members, I am happy that the disciplines here have taken a good stand. Although I can't predict what will happen next, I believe that we can get along better than before... hopefully...

They may add how many negative posts they wish to OBrasilo, he doesn't mind them right now.

Actually, these rules have existed on the forum for quite some time. We've just placed a higher penalty for breaking them.

You misunderstood me, I don't care a bit what Obras wanted, I merely saw that the forum had become a lot more agressive, partial caused by Obras whining.

Yes, but you still encourage him to whine, by doing this.
