    Why do the moderators of Barrysworld/Freddyshouse have a policy of locking/deleting any posts with matter of a sexual nature yet we have access to sex, and even rape, smileys?

    :wij:

    I understand the smileys are in good humour, but so are most the posts.

    I wasn't aware that there was a policy of deleting anything with matter of a sexual nature - I distinctly remember the "Music to love girls by" thread.

    If, however, you are referring to matter of a pornographic nature, I worry about you if you cannot spot the huge gap between cartoon anal sex and explicit sexual photographs.

    I'm not refering to pornography, which I agree has no place on these forums. I should also make clear that I'm refering to the DAoC forums. :)

    It was in the creative forum if I recall, and since there are no roleplay forums, where else can we go?

    If only what you had to say was worth the bandwith a post takes up.

    Fair enough. Unknown territory for me so I'll remove myself from this discussion.

    I don't know the specific thread you are referring to, but what I can say with some certainty is that a large majority of the threads or posts which have been removed in the DAOC areas have not been removed for their content so much as their lack of it. You have been asked by the mods there to refrain from posting stuff which would be better placed in IRC or other chat channels. Threads with a 1 minute turn around time and witty 1 liners, clearly aimed at improving the post counts you seem to damned obsessed with there will be edited or removed.

    I am 99% sure this was the reason for the removal rather than the 'sexual nature' of the thread.

    How ironic coming from you.

    Well you might not know what specific thread I am refering to because it has been deleted. If you cannot answer my question please do not attempt to.

    You know why the DAoCers are hated so much?

    Levels of gratitude shown by Loxley. Real nice way to treat someone that's trying to help and understand your situation.

    Scum.

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    Jupitus isn't trying to help me nor does he understand my situation. It's a long story and one I don't feel like going into.

    It was my suppostition based on a very good knowledge of the current situation surrounding the DAOC areas and OT in particular. You, Loxley, are probably one of the worst post count whores amongst them and frankly are pissing me off now. :twak:
     
  15. Loxleyhood

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    Splendid. But spamming in DAoC forums doesn't actually have anything to do with my question, does it?
     
  16. Jupitus

    Jupitus Old and short, no wonder I'm grumpy! Staff member Moderator

    No - you don't feel like going into it because that would require you to write a sensible post with more than one line and taking up more than just a couple of seconds to create... this in turn would seriously 'nerf' your ability to farm for more posts.

    Come on... let's have some sensible discussion. Please explain to the general forum users exactly what your situation is and why you think I was not trying to help....
     
  17. Loxleyhood

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    Because you dislike me (as yourself have already stated, thanks for that) and are more concerned with attacking me than you are actually being a mod.

    And I don't post farm. If I post it's because I have something to say. If what I have to say goes against idiots or the mods then I don't mind doing so.
     
  18. Jupitus

    Jupitus Old and short, no wonder I'm grumpy! Staff member Moderator

    Yes it does... the level of spamming from you and your post count buddies in the DAOC areas is what leads me to believe the thread was removed for it's spammy nature rather than any sexual content. You are trying to be provocative and clever and only one of them suits you.

    You asked a question. He gave you the best answer he could give you.

    This is CLEARLY trying to help, you really need to sort your definition of helping someone else.
     
  20. Loxleyhood

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    His answer was basically, "You're a spammer. Then entire DAoC forums are nothing but spam. That's why it was deleted, not because of the reason you suggested. Not that I actually saw the thread we're talking about though."
     
  21. Loxleyhood

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    Well, you're wrong. Plain and simple. Mind boggling, isn't it?

    Heh. And as for provocative. I've just asked a simple question. You're the one that has provoked this into a flame thread.

    Why?
     
  23. fatbusinessman

    fatbusinessman Fledgling Freddie

    Jupitus kinda has a point... no-one can even make a decent attempt at helping unless you actually give details of what the situation is.
     
  24. Loxleyhood

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    Because the thread was removed for sexual content rather than spam.

    Loxleyhood Fledgling Freddie

    Situation; sexual content is removed from DAoC Freddyshouse always. Freddyshouse has smileys of a sexual nature. I don't understand how these two different stances can coexist.
     
  27. Jupitus

    Jupitus Old and short, no wonder I'm grumpy! Staff member Moderator

    I didn't say the entire DAOC forums are nothing but spam, as I know there is some useful and meaningful discussion going on there in parallel with the 'race to the next forum title and bait the mods along the way' you seem to be enjoying. The rest is pretty accurate, though, and I stand by it. You do spam / post farm, I think it was because of the spam nature that the thread was probably deleted and I didn't see the thread so I was making an educated guess so that your question wouldn't go unanswered.

    I answered the question, now I am closing this thread.

    Adding further clarification:

    Moderating on FreddysHouse forums (this is not Barrysworld any more, Loxley, please try to take that on board) is done purely with the Code of Conduct in mind. We do not have a policy of removing items of a sexual nature provided it falls within the bounds of what we consider reasonable.

    Each and every mod is different, and sometimes decisions will not be completely consistent from different mods. Get over it. The mods don't have time to consult on each and every decision to be made.
