Hey,

There have been a large number of people unable to log in to the site after the recent password resets. If you've been affected, please email the mods at askmtfmods@gmail.com

Let us know the name of your user account and if possible confirm the email associated with it. If you're unable to remember it, don't worry, we'll update it for you first. Just inform us of your preferred email address.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

New rules regarding good behavior and permanent bans

Starting with June 24 2016, the following rules will be added to the MTF forum wide rules. They are meant to stimulate the increase of quality in poster's messages, as well as the encouragement of constructive contribution to the forum. They are not in any way meant to bring back or maintain horrible posters, just to give some of them a second chance by encouraging them to post in a good manner for a lengthy period of time.

Good Behavior

A user who has:
  1. not made any new infractions in 3 years, may appeal for good behavior (through appeal procedures described in Forum Wide rules) in order to have all minor infractions lifted.
  2. not made any new medium infractions (Discriminatory remarks, Wishing injury, Uttering Threats) or major infractions (Wishing Death, Harassment, Violation of Privacy, Multiple Accounts) in 6 years, may appeal for good behavior (through appeal procedures described in Forum Wide rules) in order to have all medium infractions lifted.
  3. made major infractions (Wishing Death, Harassment, Violation of Privacy, Multiple Accounts) may not appeal to have them lifted.


Returning on Probation

Users who have made a successful appeal to return from a permanent ban as per rules described below in appeal procedures in Forum Wide rules, will be on a probation period until rules for Good Behavior are applied to them. During this period any infraction leads to:

a warning that they are now on the path towards a new permanent ban. Subsequent to receiving this warning, upon getting a new infraction, the user will receive a new permanent ban.


Additions to what can be appealed:
  • Good behavior - remove all minor infractions if user has not gotten ANY infraction in 3 years.
  • Good behavior - remove all medium infractions (Discriminatory remarks, Wishing injury, Uttering Threats) if user has not gotten any medium or major (Wishing Death, Harassment, Violation of Privacy, Multiple Accounts) infraction in 6 years.
  • Permanent bans - users are only allowed to submit an appeal ONCE per year starting with the date of ban (except the first year)


Additions to who can appeal:
  • No appeals for Permanent ban lift will be accepted from Double Accounts or users permanently banned after multiple major infractions

Modifications to the possible outcomes of an appeal:
  1. After having considered the appeal moderator's request for lifting of a ban/infraction/warning, if two of the moderators agree with the appeal moderator, the warning/infraction/ban will be overturned.
  2. After having considered the appeal moderator's request for good behavior, if four of the moderators agree with the appeal moderator, the user's appeal will be successful.
  3. After having considered the appeal moderator's request for permanent ban lift, if half of the board's Super Moderators and Administrators agrees with the appeal moderator, the user's appeal will be successful.
