I still stand by not wanting posts deleted but I guess the other point would need a place before my stance is heard too much.
FFR isn't a democracy

but maybe it ought to take some hints from it

Asking people who got banned for their actions whether or not those actions should be bannable seems like it will get some great objective results.

I'm giving feedback and I've never been banned...?

I say this as someone who's never had disciplinary action from a mod in anywhere really, except when I spammed my sig in the stepmania discord a few years ago.

I know this is a forum about dance games, but can we stop dancing around points when convenient

But, that's not really productive. It's not the correct course of action, because if I had actually broken the rules, I'm well past the point where I deserve any warnings. I know I broke no actual rules with those posts.
I am a moderator of one subforum on the entire site. In what universe would I have the power to add global forum word filters....? Like use your common sense for a second.

I told you you could repost the exact thread word for word, with only the slurs being removed. You chose not to do that and instead chose to post ANOTHER rule breaking thread. Which I was forced to delete, because it broke the rules!

Slurs are not allowed in TGB. That's the actual rule you broke with those posts. The same rule I quoted when I warned you about it both times.

This. Please go ahead and post rules (or parts of) word for word that you wish to debate. Nobody will accept someone getting a warning for that (at least in non-tgb context I would be pretty certain)

That first statement is just false. The rule you're pointing to says

"6. Do not harass moderators over their moderation decisions"

It doesn't say "You aren't allowed to raise issues with the rules" or "You aren't allowed to talk about the rules" it says "When a mod does something, don't harass them in public about it."

Nor do the rules state any risk of banning arbitrarily or without warning. In fact, they explicitly state "If you are found to be in violation of these rules, you will be given a verbal warning privately. After your second verbal warning, a repeat offense will result in removal from TGB."

Now, if you just go ahead and commit flat-out site-bannable rules while breaking the TGB rules, mods outside Raeko's control or purview may apply site penalties, but the TGB rules include warnings, and only oppose public harassment over particular decisions, not general discussion of the rules. The problem is the people who go from "I don't like these rules" to "Lets post a thread calling the mods morons who should be stripped of rank because nobody should be so stupid as to think these are good rules, you idiot" which is not quite the same thing.

To be honest it might be better to post about tgb rules in tgb just because it's kind of an isolated community, maybe make a separate thread there about it

but what even is your definition of harass??? its not rigidly defined, which means raeko theoretically has the power to ban someone for saying something negative about the rules

that might have been why i decided to pm. i definitely thought making a thread there was unsafe

devonin you're typing to fast for me lol

a private warning does nothing when you regularly tread on a line you can't see. which is probably why people are salty about their bans from tgb

I know that's not what you actually took from that.

YOU CAN BY ASKING AN ADMIN. THAT IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO. IT'S WHAT I DID.

IT'S. NOT. DIFFICULT.


EQUALLY, YOU COULD HAVE SIMPLY EDITED MY POST. I KNOW WHAT POWERS YOU HAVE.

Let me say this very cleanly.

I think your rule is completely stupid. You are telling me that in the precise context of that post, I am "inciting violence against women" which is not at all the correct context of that post even remotely.

You are one of the types of people who disregards context in pursuit of their own ideals. People like you scare people like me into ever attempting to talk to people because all that's going to happen is my ass is going to get charged just like count dankula from youtube.

THAT is the environment you're making with your shitty, horribly written, completely unneeded rules.

Get off the fucking internet until you actually possess the ability to think for yourself.

People like you, who think like you, fuck up everything. You make this a worse place than I ever did, and I've done and said some evil fucking shit, and not even felt slightly bad about it.

I don't give a fuck that it's you in particular, I give a fuck that you're making the world a shittier place to inhabit, especially a place I give a fuck about.

Oddly I can express the entire range of human emotion about things that happen, including anger, rage, frustration, etc and I can manage to do it without using any slurs. I don't need to use slurs but hide behind 'but the context' I don't need to use slurs and then argue against people who were upset/offended/hurt by those slurs that their feeling that way is their fault for giving the slur power.

You can just...-not use them- really and honestly you can.

I used to use them. You can probably find old posts on this forum where I used them. Then I learned better, and I stopped.

@XelNya clearly you're not helping resolving any issue here at all. I don't know if you're finding your posts funny right now with the use of big text like Elena- pointed out but pretty sure it's unnecessary. You're showing a lot of animosity and emotions for a subforum literally called "The Garbage Bin". Either you're enjoying the drama you're causing (or being a part of), or you just don't want / can't argue the rules properly.

I mean sure. But I still don't think a mod should be posting like that. If you have a position of power you should try to be above that.

this is hardly disqualifying (and this isn't even meant to be a jab at staff)

because realistically those same conversations just occur behind the scenes every time an actual ban is considered

every mod's got an angle
