    With all due respect, and knowing this might sound like sucking up, I think you're a little out of line.

    The thread was derailed when droideka came in. She, being a mod, decided to, in a very nice way, give you all some guidance. It doesn't matter whether she mods the YJCC or the Games forum, she's a mod, who by the way is very active in this forum it seems to me, and no matter what forum she's in, she's allowed to whip out the ban stick, click on the edit button, and/or give users a little perspective.

    If somebody posted a porn link in here, do you think she should look the other way and wait for Sapes, Raven, or KK to lock/delete/edit the thread/post just because she doesn't mod the forum? no. Her duty as a mod would dictate that she should mod the post.

    In the same way, she saw a few users overstepping their bounds slightly and felt that it was her duty to put them in their place.

    About the sniping: that's extreme and probably wrong. I'm sure all she was trying to do was read the thread as *gasp* mods do that sometimes. Then, she saw what was going on and decided to interject. I oculd be wrong, but I seriously doubt she goes through threads in a forum she doesn't moderate looking for problems.

    And about her comment not being constructive, that's simply not true. She was guiding certain users. Yes, her post was off topic, but it was on topic of the derailed thread, and since she was moderating, she doesn't have to be on topic anyway.

    Sorry, just felt I had to speak out on that one.

    A fair and simple "take this pissing contest to pm" for both of them would have done.

    But they are in a way... I mean, I'm waiting for KW & KK to jump in with thier super soakers (but KK will probably lock the thread for going so far OT).

    "Do you have reason to believe there are many other users who are bothered by posts that don't contribute to a thread?"

    DLM: No but if my current petition is accepted there'll be a FOcus Group on it very soon. With expert planning and execution, concrete evidence should be returned for the administrations consideration in around 3 to 6 months. :)

    "And if so, who's to decide what is a useful reply and what is spam?"

    DLM: Yeah, that'd be the mods. But probably not the ones guilty of it themselves ;)

    "A fair and simple "take this pissing contest to pm" for both of them would have done/"

    Gabe: Excellent point. In gratitude for your grounded common sense, please take the RotS pics I'm PMing you and distribute them to your friends :)

    Dark_Depiction: tl, dr.

    I think the appropriate question is who hasn't banned you. :p

    Hmm, this thread will work as well as any of the others about titles.

    What is a "Supreme Chancellor of the SWC Galactic Senate", and why do they get colors?

    All I know is that it's for this thread and he has them for a week. I don't know anything about the game.

    Shouldn't it say "Game Winner" or something in there?

    What's up with all the mod/vip titles lately? Did the policy on a titles being used for informational uses only change or did the Admins just get more lax around here?

    we never stopped using, let's say, "spiced up" titles, even after the huge thread here in Comms, so I don't think it ever was policy (at least since then)


    and if I may venture my very personal opinion, if there is anything that needs fewer and more useful titles, it's FanForce. I will go mad when I see a "ex-Co-CR" somewhere...
    but that's just me

    This was explained in detail starting here, and has been in effect since February 3, 2003. It was done with the approval of the Head Admin.

    No kidding FanForce is the worst abuser of using joke titles around. I fully agree with you. Eh...if Sape said it's ok then it' ok in my book.

    They're doing it cautiously.

    Hoping not to have anymore problems.

    Well, I say down with 'em!

    Viva la revolution!

    This is an image of this thread.

    Note: there is a mod in the mid-ground, contemplating urination or suicide.


    When will we be able to inform people of our deeds of derring-do in our titles? Personally, I want something about my rescue of a clutch of nuns somewhere in the jungles of a Peruvian supermarket.

    No, yours should either be "the Modharaji" or the "Modssiah". :p
