    Re: What do you think about the forum staff ?

    If it makes a difference, I got a warning for calling LaRoza a doodie head...

    No really, I'm serious.

    I do start to think admins are being over-hired, and have started spreading out the discipline.

    Since you seem to disagree with the warning, I'm moving it to the Res Center (note: this post bumped a long-dead thread about opinions of forum staff).

    Nice useless extrataneous post. I've already talked to matthew and he refused to remove it.

    This is what happens when you expand the bureaucracy, too many buereus are created; while some are overactively slamming the guilty-by-mistake, others are slow to react and provide poor aid.

    And happy day, you got to use that fancy split topic button.

    Well, another admin will review the situation soon. In the meantime, the waaahmbulance has been called and will arrive in due course.

    No comment, this serves as proof of the flaky high-horsed "admins" that "admin" this forum.

    It's weird, somebody gives you admin and you think you have to right to even suggest that you earned a thank you from the community. A bit chauvinistic in my opinion.

    As to the post above, you have admins that overdo their jobs, start watching everyones p's and q's, and those that don't do anything but use those extra abilities every so often because they can.

    Calm down, Frak. It isn't as bad as you might think. We're mods by the way.

    Admins?

    Interesting claim. It is true, I have done things (although I am a mod, you seem to apply "admin" to all staff") because I can, like edit my thread titles, or lock my own threads (see my programming challenges, I lock them during grading), or very occassionly fix typos in other thread titles (that is rare).

    You are using a logical fallacy, inappropriate generalisation, and even that doesn't really apply. You are using one example, of a warning you received for something that under certain circumstances could deserve it, to generalise to all "admins". We have less admins than we did before and none of them are "new".

    As for why we can be "flaky" and "high horsed", how would you be if you had to deal with the things we deal with? Of course, most of the snippier things I have said are to spammers (and they can't check their PM's anyway, so it doesn't matter). We, in general, are normal users doing what we like to do with the added responsibility of being staff. We are used to things like this: http://linsux.org/index.php?topic=310.0

    Found this: (I am flattered)http://linsux.org/index.php?topic=348.0

    I am a very sensitive person to criticism but even I find those things funny, beneath my notice.

    Frak as you think the staff here are so bad I suggest a time out from the Forums. To assist you with that I have issued you a 10 point infraction that expires in one month

    For what it is worth, I was never approached with this request, not by PM nor by email. I can't refuse a request I never received. It's a trivial side note, but since you mentioned me specifically by name, I decided to let the facts be made clear.
