Post Deleting

#1 Post by rev » Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:52 pm

I don't know if this is a serious forum anymore or a place for certain people with big egos to stroke those egos and make them selves feel good.
A regular serious forum, when posts get deleted by staff, members whose posts are subject to being deleted, receive a notification. You know, giving a reason why.
Of course, having such removes the possibility of staff abuse because there is some level of transparency.

I made a post in the Dominator thread, after Nort's "apology" post, and before TimTams sad face post.
Basically saying an early render would be good, and I'd imagine given the name it could look like a giant dildo, or something capable of causing destruction.
Comments about what you imagine a building might resemble get removed, despite similar comments being made by others about the light poles in Rundle Mall.

So you want this to be a serious forum about construction, development and planning, but want to talk about buildings looking like giant dildos and "causing destruction".

I'm not sure those two things go together.

If similar words were used in previous topics, then they should be reviewed as well.

Don't think I said I think that.
We all know what this is really about, and it certainly isn't about a building being described as a dildo.
If it was, the comments about the light poles in Rundle Mall by others would have been removed back then as well. But they weren't.

So this leads to the suggestion I've made, to create transparency.

Perfect example.

If you're not abusing Scooter, you are abusing people for having an opinion.

I think it's important to realise that being a forum where development is the passion, different people will display their passion in a variety of ways and have a bit of fun learning and being random along the way as long as its moderated appropriately (which it is).
In saying that, Rev, I think you're right in some ways. The line is crossed when people take other's concerns and varied opinions overly aggressively as "anti-development" and deliberately put them down or take someone's opinion way too personally. A prime example with Shuz. He's a bully and someone should ban him (again).

What drugs are you on? You make the most random absurd posts which aren't even remotely funny.

I've been part of other forums and hobby sites and you always get people disagreeing. This site though, I don't know why it is, has the highest ratio of people calling for others to be banned because they're apparently trolls. This "trolling" comes from strongly opposing a particular development or mucking around. Such accusations on other users are damaging to any online community.

Everyone is allowed their own opinion and although you might disagree with someone about a building, it's moronic to suggest they should leave. Same when someone makes a dumb post. Isn't it easier to just ignore it if you don't like it? Strictly policing a forum to be on topic 100% of the time, or serious 100% of the time is again, damaging for an online community.

This is a good site and these concerns are sour points rather than some massive infection. Overall I like being here and I'd like everyone to feel that way.

Surely you should know by now that banning people is highly ineffective. People would just make another profile.

I love how you're quick to single me out, but are blind to your own hypocrisy. Look in the mirror first and change your own behaviours before singling others out over "bullying".

I agree to a point in what Sir Noit is saying however when somebody goes from disagreeing to blatantly putting another down (ie. Shuz to rev) that’s unacceptable. Shuz does it all the time and somebody needs to act on it.

Banning people is a way of enforcing what is and isn’t acceptable. Nothing wrong with that.

By the way, I just looked in a mirror and saw a devilishly handsome young man with a genuine integrity who has never bullied anyone in my entire life. I’m not the hero people want, but I am the hero people deserve mate. Stop putting people down and get used to it.
