I've had enough of doing this now. Anyone else want the job?

Thanks for all the work you have done in the past though!

As our resident moderator is so fed up with dealing with the same few people over and over then I can moderate (if people are happy for it), however it would be done the same way I ran Bloodbowl, total Dictatorship.

First warning comes with a 24 hour ban from the forums
Second comes with a 72 hour ban
Third comes with permanent ban.

I don't care how badly it screws your organising of games or anything else. If someone reports your post, I would read it and make a judgement. If that judgement went against you, obviously you couldn't immediately complain as you would banned for 24 hours. However if you came back and complained about it then say bye bye for another 72, complain again then find a different forum.

Forum Rule (There would be only one) is simply, Don't be an ==Expletive Deleted==, and its me that decides if you are being an ==Expletive Deleted==

As a secondary I would nominate bigmaddrongo to rule on things that I reported, obviously following the same rules.

If no one eles is willing to stand then I would put my name forward to compete against captain compassionate.

I am similar in many ways to the man, however if we were to be following those rules i'd already be banned and out of the league by now.

I would allow warnings to drop off after 6 months. ;) you might get back on the forums at some point :P

Being honest I like Lee's viewpoint. Deep down we are all aware of what constitutes being an *** when we post and if someone doesn't then they learn the hard way. It shouldn't be that a mod has to debate the rules with an offender.

As far as I can see, I've activate this by pointing out an incorrect move of one of my topics by helios. Am I right in thinking that pointing out moderators errors or actively defending yourself with an explanation isn't allowed? My post was not rude and I can totally understand why she thought it should be in bloodbowl by the initial posts.

Some people on here tend to take things the wrong way or to heart, which can leave discussing or debating anything near impossible.

I see 3-4 posts in this thread as reportable. Even the suggestion of a swear word is reportable in my eyes.

It is no single event that has brought about Helios wanting to stand down as moderator.

The point is that some people are posting for their own amusement rather than for open discussion. This weekend alone I flat deleted two posts by two different people that rated little above base trolling.

Posted from my phone. Please excuse my bad spelling.

No, your request for it to be moved back wasn't, and I did so with no quibble or fuss, and certainly didn't take that to heart.

However, you then came back with a completely irrelevant and unnecessary comment in your next post which I felt insinuated that the moderation on this forum is not good enough. While you may have intended it as a 'joke', I didn't take it that way, I was upset and hurt.

first of all its nice to see my agony aunt page back where it was intended, no apology for the mistake though but that's the way it is round here.


On other occasions you have outright berated me for my moderation decisions and suggested that I am unfair. This has had me in a furious state as I was simply trying to do my job of upholding the rules without prejudice or bias.
No amount of claims that you were joking are going to mean that everyone magically reacts to you in the same way. Seriously, do you expect everyone else to change how they read into things and feel about situations just to accommodate your apparent lack of consideration for anyone's feelings?
Things can be read into everything people say on here, correctly or incorrectly, and therefore everyone needs to take care when posting.

And to answer your question: yes, it states in the rules currently that arguing with moderation decisions is not allowed.
