If you want to discuss it, you can send a PM and you know I will discuss it. I always do.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

What's MTF's policy on gay slurs? Also, what's MTF's policy on harrassing other posters?

i know but no point in it, really . you were familiar with all those facts and still decided like you have decided. I can't say anything new, the same like you can't admit you were wrong


just one thing, imagine how you would feel if person who was banned twice due to personal attacks against you now deciding about your future...

Yeah, like I sent you two PMs about you banning a poster upon his own request when he didn't want it? Never saw a reply from you. It took Andreas to be involved to fix the issue How is that always then?

A poster with infractions/bans becoming a mod? Ridiculous. It should be somebody with a clean sheet. World is coming to an end on MTF.

Awaiting my infraction for mod bashing any minute now because I dared to speak my mind

Re: Ask MTF Mods

I am a bit confused about what posters can or cannot do/discuss regarding the banning of any particular user.

I noticed some posters such as GSMnadal & Motorhead were banned in the last couple of days. Were they banned because they protested against the banning of topspindoctor in an inappropriate way?

How many posters were banned as a result of their posts about TSD's ban?

I can't see the thread asking for the unbanning of TSD anymore. Was it deleted? If so why?

Are such threads commenting on a poster's ban not allowed anymore?

Re: Ask MTF Mods

when will the Banned User thread finally be updated? There were zillions of bannings after the ban of T-Doc, but they aren't still in the thread.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

I'm curious as to why everything needs to be discussed over PM. There are loads of people with the same question. Wouldn't it take way less time to just answer them right away in a thread like this? Now it just feels like people have something to hide.

Threads commenting on a poster's ban are not allowed, no. I don't think they ever were, at least not during my time on the forum. I don't recall other threads being allowed, other than the one about Corey Feldman's permanent ban.

It will be updated when an admin finds the time. We all work full-time jobs, and have a lot of things going on with getting the new moderators started, not to mention all the administrative work on the forum as well.

I don't really see much to answer here. We decided that the poster in question would make a good moderator, and that is pretty much the end of it. Nowhere does it state that previously banned or infracted users can't become moderators, obviously there is some sort of limit, but we take the user's recent behaviour into consideration as well and believe that people can change for the better. In fact, there are more than 1 moderator with a card to his name, and we have experienced no problems regarding that.

It makes me a bit sad that people here are so quick to judge, and I hope that the 6 new moderators will all be given a fair chance.

I see, but you have the time to send numerous pms to people asking about controversial new mods. I think it takes more time to answer a pm than to update the Banned User thread.

Nope, it doesn't actually.

He is busy at this time, but we are expecting him back at a later date. We have more information than you do about activity, so it may be true that he hasn't posted since May 5th, but he has been here since and communicated it with us.
