Long story short, I left Ubuntu because I was getting sick and tired of it and I left Ubuntu Forums because the discussion was always lame and childish and went to Arch Linux. The distribution was great, the forums were fine, and I found my place on the wiki contributing time and knowledge whenever I got the chance. I even made a bug report. A moderator banned me from the wiki and forums because I didn't like how he abused his authority to vandalize people's edits by reverting them and protecting pages he felt were his property and I reported him on the forums. Even though I never wanted to come back, this is the only place that I can come back to.

Just because you use these forums doesn't mean you have to use Ubuntu :) there's plenty of Arch users
around here.

That said, I don't know if you have stopped using arch, your post made it sound that way though. Regardless, happy return! :p

That's a sad story.

I haven't looked, though I expect that there is a path for complaint built into the Arch administration system which may help you come to a more equitable resolution.

There should be more than just one mod/admin' making such decisions as you outlined in your post, I think.

- Arch Linux Reject, Forcibly Returned to Ubuntu I hope you end up feeling welcomed back. I understand your experience with weird mods/admins; I left a forum for a similar event that actually happened to many of the members. There is nearly no activity there anymore. Currently, I'm a global mod in another forum; it's the one all us members migrated to and all the staff and members couldn't get along better. There's no quicker way for a forum staff member to fail the community than by abusing their power and being power drunk. :popcorn:

With all the recent arch fuss around here, I decided to try my hand at it just to see if i had the tech-savyness to install it. I was able to install it and get a gui going (gnome to be exact). I was satisfied with that. I didn't spend a week manually configuring text files and the like, I spent less than a day on it. Truth be told I installed it on a testing partition on my hard drive, I use something else for my main OS. I am not anti-arch or even less anti-ubuntu, or anti-any distribution when it domes down to it...but some people are seriously misguiding others when they say arch is 'easy to install and configure' and that a 'noob' could do it. I could tell you that if I were to go back to my noobiest of linux days, back when i first installed ubuntu (the first distro i installed in fact), I could not for my life have installed arch, even using all of the helpful wiki guides and such...

I also was banned from the wiki. I went by manolo/gog.

I also called him out on his inability to read the guidelines posted in the Arch wiki. He didn't like that.

He seems to not enjoy people that contribute to the wiki in a greater degree than he does. Very immature. Not only that, he completely deleted every proof of this happening.

I had over 1000 edits and improved many pages...

Anyways, I'm now using http://sta.li instead of Arch.

Edit:

He wanted me to revert 100+ articles because the categories (2 lines of source code) were placed in the bottom (as the guidelines stated), instead of the top of the article, where he wanted them to be. The articles had wrong categories and I fixed them by hand, instead of using a bot.

1. He rages about Category edits: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/User:Manolo

2. His user page, which used (he deleted it) to contain my replies and explanation for such edits: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Misfit138&action=edit&redlink=1

3. The ArchWiki guidelines that say that categories should go on the bottom: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=ArchWiki_Tutorial_(English)&oldid=83795#Adding_a_new_page

4. A website admin that admitted Misfit138's mistake: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/User_talk:Thayer

Then I called him out on not reading the Arch Wiki guidelines (keep in mind that this dude is an admin), too bad I can't post the forum thread since he deleted it.

The guy, Misfit138, is a child. And he's slowly killing the Arch community with his stupidity...

Arch mods can be a scream. They've got a KDE developer that doesn't actually use KDE so can't test his own packages. He released some package, libjpeg I think it was, that had some major bugs and the forums lit up with complaints, some people wouldn't let it go and got banned. The guy was unrepentant and all the other mods & devs rallied round to support him, closing ranks. It was a scream. :D

I like gentoo a lot better than arch. A lot of arch feels hacked together by kids IMO. Their glorious rc.conf isn't actually what it should be for example. Arch just feels like it's own world instead of a linux distro. It's hard to explain though if you've used it (more than just installing) and aren't a fanboy you get it.

Yeah, rc.conf is a very dumb thing in Arch. Why don't ALSA, HAL and CUPS don't add themselves to the daemon list when I install their packages using pacman? How this gives me more control than just installing/removing the packages? I still think Arch is a great distro.

I run Arch on a "testing" computer, but I'm not really involved in the Arch community since it's mostly just a server now. I haven't really noticed Arch elitism on the BBS - most of the people I was involved with were quite nice - though it's quite apparent in the IRC logs I've read.

I suppose mostly the conflicts appear when you get high up enough that you start conflicting with the other people that are "up there" and have their preferred way of doing things. It could be manifested more in Arch because it's a lot more "do it yourself" as opposed to following particular policies, and that attitude could carry over into the community.

Pacman's flippin' brilliant, though. It's pretty much everything I want in a package manager, especially since after the upgrade to Karmic dpkg takes a really long time to read the database.

Because that isn't the Arch Way. Seriously do people not get the point of Arch. And rc.conf is a fantastic file, makes life a lot easier. And it's less complicated then if you tried to do something similar in Ubuntu. And Arch is different for once, a distro that came up with something original. Instead of the 8000 Distros based on Debian and/or Ubuntu, that don't really have any different feel at all.

Which part?

Not this:

Arch Linux targets and accommodates competent GNU/Linux users by giving them complete control and responsibility over the system.
because adding "hal" to the daemons list gives the user the same control and responsibility as "pacman -S hal"

Why do you think there are ~8000 distro's based on Debian ?

Because it's a mature, reliable, well maintained distribution with a productive release path that can provide any type of Linux experience you could want.

Arch didn't appear as if by magic you know, it was based on LFS. Perhaps the thing that sets Arch apart is the evangelical nature of its users.

From the Arch vs others: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Compared_To_Other_Distributions#Slackware


Arch typically applies patching only to avoid severe breakage and preserve functionality, if absolutely necessary. Both use BSD-style init scripts.

Hmm, how are sysvinit modifications vanilla? Isn't it runlevel based by design? Moreover, why aren't installed daemons enabled automatically (like someone else pointed out in this thread)? Gee, if I installed a program then it's a safe assumption I want to use it. Any other point of view is entertaining something that's far from logical.


For someone taking the ubuntu, as opposed to the allegedly elitist arch side, you are having quite high requirements for what should be considered Linux 101.

You seem to be overlooking the fact that he is a developer. And I'm also purposedly using that etilist sounding "Linux 101" remark to highlight that the distribution is not what it's cut out to be; i.e., for advanced users. Advanced users would know that would render a system unbootable.

Did you even bother to read the post that you were referencing to? Who in gods name would consider that a practical and meaningful guide?! The moderator was fully justified in what he/she said and responded appropriately.

I wouldn't quite call it evangelical (if I had to guess what you were referring to, a better religious analogy would be "radical fundamentalist"). And you can't really make broad judgements about the community as a whole based on a few flamers - most of the people I've dealt with on the Arch BBS were nice and helpful. It seems like most of the problems people have with Arch users come from the people who think using Arch makes them ultra-l33t and that all other distro users are n00bs who need to use a real system (and make crude jokes on IRC).

Yes, Arch evangelism to Ubuntu is what Gentoo evangelism was to Mandrake users in '02. It doesn't matter, and the user will ultimately decide what OS they want to run.

I personally enjoy people being excited about FS and OS software and figuring out what's best for them.

On Ubuntu users compared to Arch's: I've never seen Ubuntu users preaching at the Arch forums. Is it coincidental that the reverse is true?

This hardly qualifies as proof, but still.

...?

I'm not fighting with you. I was intending for the image to be playful. I'm tired though, so if it's fire you want:

Arch users are more knowledgeable than Ubuntu users.

G'night.

Heavens, it seems that this thread has been making the rounds.

Misfist138, ArchWiki admin, is reading the thread. He recently deleted a guide I made for improvements for the wiki. Including improvements for screen reader users; in other words, blind users.

Deletion: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=User:Manolo&action=edit&redlink=1

Seems like he doesn't care about improving the community, only about who does it. I guess his grudge trumps over those with accessibility problems.

I think it's a bit sad that people take personally the preference of one OS over another. Isn't that like Toyota owners randomly fighting Honda owners?
