What happened to Unmod?


Recommended Posts

I don't understand what you mean when you say "spilled over into GenDisc".

I personally know many people who stayed out of GenDisc for a reason. I have no idea where you got this from. There may have been a few people that used both GenDisc and UnMod, but they posted to fit the criteria of each forum. Any spilling was an exception, not something that was common in any way/shape/or form.

p.s. please read Coop and Syl's posts on the previous page, I do not want to steal their fire

Why don't you go chase after Ginger some more? I'm not going to take my shirt off, so you can go ahead and leave this thread. :D

This is probably the first time i've actually heard someone attempt to insult me using Ginger in a very long time. People actually got the fuck over it in the few years since any of that bullshit happened.

I did make a small remark about your personal life; so i can't say that was entirely unexpected. Still, I was harshly telling you too not use over generalizations of the unmods; you did nothing but prove my point by attempting to insult me using a particular topic that has long since been dead and buried.

But how is that the fault of anyone in UnMod? If you look around the Web, the notion of having a bigger post count to fit in is not an UnMod or OCR trait. It's everywhere. Every site forum at some point has had someone make a sarcastic remark regarding a person's post count, and how it wasn't big enough to make that poster be taken seriously.

I never said it was the fault of anyone in UnMod, and I certainly didn't have that intent when I posted my perceptions of what went on. I know it goes on everywhere- of course. Perhaps I am completely off on my thoughts about what could have caused the abuse (i.e. postcount, popularity contests, etc). I am willing to accept that, no problem! I obviously didn't spend as much time there as you all, so I only know what a few people have expressed to me behind the scenes.

The point is, there was abuse, and that abuse is what eventually made OffTopic our best possible compromise. That's all I was trying to clarify. I am mostly in agreement with you, Coop, about your vision of OffTopic. I meant that essay post as an attempt to explain my perceptions, so that people might have better insight as to why UnMod was deleted. My perceptions are mine alone, and I don't necessarily speak for the rest of the staff. Just trying to help, honestly.

Oh god get over yourself, you're not fucking good looking at all ok. Fuck. You make a personal attack on my boy Syl, and nothing happens to you, therefore me saying this, should lead to no repercussions, unless of course the mods are fucking biased.

Nice work on being a mature, diplomatic example of a representative of this website. You are certainly above the level of any of UnMod regular. Bravo to you.

Touched a nerve there, huh?

I'm some noob. An UnModder noob. Who are you?

I am Eulogic.

Anyway, it is no secret that they had been planning to delete UnMod for a long time now, so I don't see why it's such a big deal that it was deleted swiftly. Sure, some warning might have been nice, but it's not AHHHH RIOT IN THE STREETS.

Also, last time I checked, pixie does not have admin access. She already admitted that she does not know the innermost workings of UnMod, and she was merely guessing as to what caused the events that led to the deletion of UnMod. But hey, you're going to flame her no matter what she says, even if it is a joke about Syl that any one of you might have made.

The person who did delete UnMod, djpretzel, has already said his part in this thread, and it was generally well-received. This thread hasn't really had a purpose since then, and we can only hope that it will soon wither and die.

Honestly, I would prefer the OCR staff to act on the level of an UnMod regular rather than above it, if it's just the same to you.

I hope you know that being a complete bitch is doing little to help substantiate any of your claims about the state of unmod prior to its deletion or to convince anybody that any of this didn't have any other source of motivation. GG.

Really. Comments like that just seem to reinforce the "us vs. them" mentality that's already rampant enough.

Honestly, I think it was a joke in an attempt to reconcile "us" and "them," as she already said was her intention for Off-Topic.

Let's try to keep thing a bit more civil here people. I don't want this thread to get deleted like the other ones.

Could somebody clear up something for me? The word "abuse" has been thrown around a lot lately. I'm just a lowly lurker, so I might not be familiar with the "abuse" going on all over the place. I am familiar with the comments in response to the sidebar, but that situation was dealt with many moons ago. From my browsing of the forums, I have not seen anything that could warrant the deletion of an entire forum. I know that the mods would have dealt with this abuse and that they could probably cite specific examples to clarify what this abuse is like. I feel that the community would be more understanding if they could see that exact reason why their beloved forum was deleted.

Right now, "abuse" just seems like a term coined to be an excuse for deletion. Kinda like the term "weapons of mass destruction."

I was wondering the same thing (Sir, our intelligence says that there are weapons of mass destruction in this forum... ;))- I am curious to see a few specifics on what the abuse in question was. I'm not questioning if it existed, I'm just curious to see it.

In a PM with pixie...

[01/10 02:49] (Eulogic): you could always respond with "Why don't you go chase after Ginger some more. I'm not going to take my shirt off, so you can go ahead and leave this thread."

[01/10 02:49] (Eulogic): Question mark instead of period after the first sentence.

[01/10 02:49] (pixietricks): because that would fan the flames :P

[01/10 02:49] (Eulogic): Honestly, I'm not sure it would.

[01/10 02:50] (pixietricks): well, then you can say it, lol

[01/10 02:50] (pixietricks): i'm not gonna take the risk

[01/10 02:50] (Eulogic): but it's funnier coming from you

[01/10 02:50] (Eulogic): and I think it will actually ingratiate you with the UnModders a little

Meanwhile, in another neck of the woods...

[01/10 03:19] (LEGENDARY POSTER): i'm gonna post just to call pixie a bitch

dance puppets dance

Anyway, I think this thread is pretty much over.
