    abbynormal: Yeah, and xxplosiv has a high post count, neither are good for the site IMHO.

    They contribute nothing. They don't feed the queue, looks at phail's post count and then look at the number of submissions he's made.

    At least TBS is capable of making posts that can add value to a discussion. All Phil and Half do is lie and insult people.

    I don't see why just posting a lot means they add anything to the site, they don't. I'd be interested to see how many people have them on ignore.


    True, but the same is likely true of other users too. There's a few I can point at who enjoy nothing better than poking the conservative trolls just to make my life suck.

    I don't see why you bother unstriking them. It's not like they are paying you to use the site.

    Maybe you should change the appeal process so it requires multiple votes before a request gets sent to you.

    I wish I could, but for some reason I have a high enough nancy score so I can't vote or strike.

    Not sure why.

    abbynormal: I don't see why you bother unstriking them. It's not like they are paying you to use the site.

    That's part of the problem - we are taking money from them. If a user is paying for bN then we need to have a clear reason why they can't use the site at a point in time.

    Visa aren't going to contact you for an explanation of a chargeback, they are going to contact me, then I have to explain why they've been stfu'd. So I have to have a clear reason that I can give them.

    The fact that the community just decided to not let them play doesn't really fly.

    It was my understanding that giving money to bN is a donation, not a payment in return for services.

    So "It's my site and my decision" isn't a good enough reason for them?

    Maybe you should add a disclaimer informing people that no refunds will be given if you happen to get an stfu. I don't see why you should anyway.

    You put way more effort in to this than it deserves to begin with. Why should you spend ANY time catering to people who just want to cause problems?

    Maybe get rid of the appeal option at all. Perhaps if people know they can't just piss all over everyone, then run crying to you when people get fed up with their antics.

    So far I haven't see a lot of strike abuse. People don't strike TBS when he's acting human.

    Perhaps people might think twice about being jerks if they knew they'd have to serve their time with no chance of appeal.

    It's unclear how visa would characterize that. Generally since you are paying money for something of value you would have a right to that thing of value. It's never really been tested, but I don't think it's really a donation if we're a for profit company

    You could autorefund anybody who gets STFU'd multiple times and make them ineligible for masterbN.

    Easy solution, just extend their masterbN by the same length of time as their STFU. They don't lose anything technically.

    I thought about that, too, but if the possibility of losing masterbN forever because of poor behavior acts as a deterrent, that could be a good thing.

    You are really excited about this, aren't you?

    Here are other ways we can make this place an even more specialer echo chamber!

    First, whenever grahams is not around, the other characters have to say "where's Grahams."

    Second, Oreo needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine.

    Ultra Magnus arrived today.



    I didn't really like him in G1, so i don't mind that he's just a white re-paint of Optimus. The cool thing about him though, is that one of his detachable hand parts is actually two hands in a sort of manly handshake position. One white and one blue, and you're supposed to attach one side to Ultra Magnus and the other to Optimus Prime.

    I kind of wish that i didn't play as hard as a kid. I went through a crate of my old toys not so long ago and found a Galvatron with his head detached (Starscream got his revenge in my personal continuity). Anyway, i think i'm going to buy all of the upcoming Age of Extinction tie-in toys.

    grahams: The fact that the community just decided to not let them play doesn't really fly.

    Well, they paid to participate in a community moderated forum. That's kinda bN's main schtick. Well, that and funny headlines on real news articles. =)

    Complaining about the community moderation shutting you up is like paying to enter a chess tournament and being upset when you get knocked out.

    Put it another way, comment spam is basically a low-tech DNS attack. I don't really know the laws around that, but IMHO bN services have been denied to me if I can't easily read the beer garden because it's clogged with xxpolsive spam. The courts do seem happy to call low-tech attacks violations of hacking laws, so you might have that working for you.

    Most of us at least have jobs. Gotta keep myself in Cheetos to eat in my parents basement.
