Plus, Pimmin completely failed at making names for people - Double-J does it much better, and he's more appropriate as he's an older member and thus has a better knowledge on this forum's members.

He agreed to start a new one. She gave him almost a week to respond. He didn't, so she opened one on her own. Seems fine to me.
Also why did you vote in this wrestlefest's thread if you don't recognize it?



Also Teary Eyed Jack (I know you don't like people messing with the Jack bit), didn't you call Pimmin "Pimmy" pretty much from the moment she joined the forum?

you already spoiled one wrestlefest battler, now you've come to spoil another one?
No, I'm actually trying to prevent Wrestlefest 2k13 from being spoiled.

Edit: And I wonder if anyone ever provided any verifiable evidence that my friends wouldn't have voted for me had I not asked them. Because fact is, they would have anyway. And then I would have been blamed for "ruining the Wrestlefest" without having done anything. And honestly, the whole situation about me back then was a powder keg. It would have exploded sooner or later, even without the Wrestlefest.
Also, I remember at least one Wrestlefest (2k6) after the "spoilt" 2k6 one that went on perfectly fine, without being spoilt by me in any way. And I doubt there was any problem regarding me in the 2k4 Wreslefest either. Interesting that you judge a person's handling of something based on one single bad instance.

Edit #2: To break down:
1. What happened was: I asked my friends to vote for the same people I voted for, they did.
2. Fact: They would have done that anyway even had I not asked them.
3. Fact: They were all known members of this forum, they didn't register for the sole purpose of voting on that Wrestlefest.
4. Neither of the two actions are forbidden by the Wrestlefest rules.
5. Neither of the two actions caused noticable swaying of votes.
6. Thefore, neither of the two actions had any effect on the Wrestlefest, really.
7. Mostly everyone involved in any Wrestlefest always campagined for votes, to gather votes is the whole point of the Wrestlefest after all.
8. Therefore, the conclusion is: people got butthurt that anyone dared vote for me.
9. I still took responsibility for the actions, even though I saw nothing wrong with what I had done, and requested a 30 day Ban for it.
10. I got the Ban and served it without causing trouble.
11. At least one subsequent Wrestlefest (2k6) took place without any problem from me or my friends.
12. Therefore, why is the 2k5 Wrestlefest still so much of a big deal?

Yes, he agreed to start a new one, but she gave him almost a week to respond? Sorry, I didn't know she was his boss. I think the appropriate thing to do would have been to wait for a response from him, rather than unilaterally imposing a time limit to his response.
Also, I voted because it's not like it will make a difference anyway.

She should have waited for his response? Sorry, I didn't know he was her boss. I think the appropriate thing to do was to wait a reasonable amount of time and just open a thread, rather than waiting for an undefined amount of time for our whimsical god to give his permission. It's not like the wrestlefest is a franchise Double-J owns.

Wait a second, but when I did the same back in 2005, and opened my Wrestlefest 2k5 without waiting for Double-J to open his, I was bombarded with attacks about how I had right to do it. So when I do it, it's the worst sin ever, but when Pimmin does it, it's OK? Sorry, but I just can't see the logic here.
And sorry, we don't know if Double-J will even agree with this or not. Also, the Wrestlefests usually took place in the summer, not in April, so there was still time for him to respond.

Look, Battler, fucking relax ok.

We can make another wrestlefest if JJ wants to in the summer, and call it "MBN Summer Wrestlefest 2013", happy now?
Now quit whinning in EVERY GODDAMN THREAD, and let's have FUN, okay.

Reading that I kind of want to see Battler - the movie, where it is all explained in fine detail with the appropriate drama. I'd write the soundtrack for it

battler you make really long posts which no one reads, because they're boring as shit. just fyi.

also what's this "sticking up for double-j" business, nobody did anything wrong to him so there can be no question of "sticking up for him".
but i'm curious, where is this fanatic loyalty to DJ coming from?
i mean the guy probably busts your balls even more than i do.

Sure, he does. But at least he does it tactfully. That, and he actually made a thread calling for everyone to cut the crap and be nice to everyone. He admitted he has gone too far and it has to stop. You and your female counterpart haven't.

And anyway, the Wrestlefest is Double-J's creation, and as such he might not like Pimmin's initiative. It's not that Pimmin did a bad thing - in fact, she did a good thing. But Double-J might just want to start the Wrestlefest himself. Just that.

i don't see what's so tactful about calling you a pedophile a bunch of times, but hopefully from now on you'll behave and stop derailing every thread you post in.

As far as I understand it, Pimmin did actually ask Double-J about the wrestlefest before opening it, so I don't think there is an issue. If Double-J has a problem with the wrestlefest as it stands, he can PM me or another mod.
