Re: Ask MTF Mods

So, you're telling me that moderators have never changed a rule when they deemed it to be inconsistent with the rest or add something to the set of rules to be able to hande certain situations better?
Every change is made by the forum owner and only by him?

I have been on MTF long enough to not believe that but maybe I misunderstood what you're trying to say here.

I'm just saying some things are open to interpretation, others aren't. The confidentiality rule is crystal clear. As to why it was put there in the first place I do not know.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

What I said then. Mods have made up their minds about it, discussion closed.

It looks like your mind is the one that is already made up.

Really? I don't think so. For example Jo Willy, that account is his original one and he is banned atm and the reason they state is because of multiple account while his fake account which is Slice of Life is not mentioned in the list at all.

What are the rules for usernames i.e how long they have to be, if they require you to have letters (so ***** couldn't be a username?)

Usernames can be between 2 and 16 characters long, and they don't necessarily need to contain any letters - signs are fine as well

If you get banned for other reasons, you will see your original username appear on that list so that's no longer between the MTF poster and the mods by the looks of it.

I honestly don't understand why people who create double accounts get this much protection vs other MTF posters who break forum rules but it's pretty much a closed debate since mods have made up their minds about it.
I think you got your response to this and understand now, but just to clarify- all infractions are treated the same with regards to how much information is given out. So with multiple accounts violations, the users main account will be displayed under the public banned users list, with the reason for the ban (multiple accounts) and the length of time. No further details. This is the same with all other infractions. So if a user gets banned for discriminatory remarks for example, they'll be placed on the public banned users list with the reason and length of time, but no further details regarding the post/PM/rep etc that broke the rules.

If you consider this practice a form of protection, then all rule breakers are being protected, not just multiple accounts violators. Just wanted to make that clear.
