What's the reasoning behind the inception post ban? It doesn't add a huge amount of context, sure, but it gave me a good laugh.

Would it have been an acceptable post with a british equivilant? Is there one - maybe you could wangle something out of a Tardis.

Or maybe it's the format - top and bottom text. Does that really consitute a bending of britfa.gs unwritten rule? It's recognisable sure, but it says little about the quality of its content - If you'd argue that it does indicate quality regardless of content, wouldn't that mean you're be more interested in the appearance of culture rather than the culture itself?

General pop culture reference? - I'm glad we're not bombarded by them, don't get me wrong, but a single reference here and there is less than you'd hear down the pub.

What the fuck can i read to actually understand what i'm trying to talk about, here? I've no outlet for this shit.

Reaction images used to be acceptable in the past, but now they're not. You've just got to sort of hope you're not caught out by the mods changing their minds without telling anyone.

One of the many pains of starting to post here is you (or I certainly did) learn by convention.

The reason I prefer this to the other place is because memes generally can't be the tacky kind pulled off of 9Gag, reddit, or the other place.

I saw it, thought it looked like something somebody who doesn't usually post here would post and wasn't surprised to see it banned. I don't know the rules, but you just get a feeling.

It's not worth getting upset about anyway, people get angry at the mods keeping this going and running but it's never really more than a quick telling off anyway that has 0 effect on you. Even if it is just reset your router.

I can only imagine that purps has been angrily berating the mods to increase the flagging post count and one of the lazy fuckers had the bright idea that another /shed/ debate about an overzealous ban would temporarily boost the numbers.

We respond to reports, not necessarily the posts themselves. I've said this so many times at this point, but you moderate yourselves. Bad grammar and punctuation will earn you a ban from me, it always will. I usually let spelling slide, but otherwise I'll only delete/ban stuff that is illegal, nsfw or a 4chan crosspost.

Also, purps has fucked off to Thailand or something on a sex holiday and forgot to unwall Ukraine and as a result I keep getting teary messages from a Ukrainian on Discord who WANTS to post and bump our user count, but can't and he's not arsed. Your perception of how purps runs .gs is hilariously skewed.

This actually speaks to my biggest concern with modding here, when it becomes, 'stop liking what I don't like', and regularly I find whatever reason given that seems to be the real reason.

My shitty spelling can slip by unabated for months, but god help me if I am on the wrong side of an argument from a mod. Then Mongo has to go back in the box.

If I had that kind of power, do you think I'd be complaining about Ukrainians spamming my DMs?

The problem with Eastern Europe in general though is they try and hack the site and post CP, not just apologise for bad English on /zoo/ while posting MIGs.

I've never banned someone for disagreeing with me and I don't think there has been a single ban message in the log that implies someone else did.

What is more likely is that the lad who keeps reporting people who disagree with him (you know who you are, lad) managed to get a ban approved while one of us wasn't really paying attention/drunk. We also post here, why would we want to create an environment where people couldn't articulate their views? Articulate being the operative word. Swivel-eyed loonery isn't a protected form of expression here.

I understood that it was hyperbole, I was mostly using it as an excuse to bait purps into replying to my modboard posts in between lady boy massages.

Some lads seem to be new though, so it was worth saying regardless.

Your motives certainly seem pure, but abusing power is why people become mods, and what a lot of people assume it is about, even those with good intentions.

I manage an online community of about 16 people (so about 4 times the size of britfa.gs) and the ideas people have about my power, control and how I should handle issues seem bloody insane. Maybe being anonymous and an open community changes the rules but I certainly wouldn't dream of handing out bans for protocol reasons that this place does.

Maybe it's a question of perception. Anything less than a permanent IP and/or range ban is just like shouting "Oy!" at a dog that's put a test paw on a sofa it knows it's not allowed on.

There are multiple tools for community management and a ban with no explanation is one of the least helpful in terms of getting people to understand.

I don't want to be too critical or backseat mod. I like here. I just think stating the reasons behind bans and 'voices of God' posts are better tools for teaching.

I also got told to not do that and mod with a little m, so I’ve rarely used it unless warning people about topics which are legally grey, like drug hook ups.

If purp says it’s fine, then I’ll change up how I mod but it’ll probably just start more cunt offs and people saying the mods are flexing. You literally can’t win. Being faceless heathen hedonists is more mysterious.

Also, why can’t I marple text but indigo can?

You might be on to something, but it's worth noting that you don't get modded here by asking - purps (or whichever poor admin is looking after the site now that purps is neck deep in ladycock) asks you. It's foisted upon those deemed suitable. When I got modded it was, I believe, basically because I'd been here so long and never asked for it.

As said, this place largely moderates itself and maintains a certain posting style without much intervention. Most shite grammar or 4channy posts are complained at by posters before mods ever have a chance to ban them. The red text merely underlines the point.

Typing in red or modposting seems unnecessary on such a small board and far too authoritarian. I'd much rather just bitch at you in normal user mode if you make a shit post (that doesn't warrant a ban but is borderline) than start telling you to calm down with a mod post/red text. That feels pretty reddit to me. I'm just here to quietly delete the youtube links to child pageants.

Indigo can type in indigo text, but it turns out indigo looks a lot like marple in coloured text. Soz.

I've never understood how this works, given that we are, of course, Anonymous, and as has been mentioned drug hookups are banned, which from what I surmise is the social event of choice of the various degenerates that inhabit this place. purps supposedly gets to know you by inviting you for a pint, but if I wanted to be 'known' to the extent the admins can look up my telephone number I'd post somewhere else, and purps isn't exactly a hacker on toast. How did he find out who you are?

I think it mostly means you need to be in the IRC clique (now discord) (so not actually just an anonymous poster) once there was a party actually organised on the boards that was many moons ago I'm lead to believe from the photos after posted on here purps1 has a foot fetish.

No poster is anonymous to the admin though. Picture purps hunched over his shed, monitoring posts by IP, awarding or removing points on his clipboard for weeks, months even, until finally he deems someone worthy. Then he tells you to get on IRC and gives you the private ceremony.

I think that's how it went.

Yeah I remember purps taking a picture of my shoe, doesn't mean he could use it to track me down and offer me mod privileges. I'm also on the discord from /e/ but the vast majority of it is just being regaled with tales from a lad in the merchant navy.

The whole mod recruitment process just seems very esoteric to me.

The whole clique thing is a lie told by a mentalist who asked to be a mod and was told no.

The discord chat is alright, because even if you’re not online when someone messages you can still catch up with what’s going on.

As for being modded, right place wrong time. “Oi, we need a mod m8 here is a gram of coke go delete this CP spam.” The rest is history.
