What happened to Unmod?

Recommended Posts

Stop assuming what every one else fucking thinks.

I will say nothing more, per zircon's request.

From what I've seen, he came here naive, and then unmodders did a number on him...so it's not surprising that he hates what unmod was.

The fake suicidal alt account he used to generate a conversation piece in ppr isn't an offense?

Smoke told me it was.

yeah but you called him an idiot on irc once

ban plz :]

also jimmy once again proves he is a good dude!

Good only because I defended his ass. And look what good that brought

Yeah, basically some users were out of hand, and so part of the solution was to delete it and erect Offtopic, and make the forum rules more well-defined & enforced. Before, it was almost impossible to do something without users going into an uproar over it, no matter how trivial.

Coop's history is biased. Where's the journalistic integrity? He's a slave to his corporate masters.

Nice article, Coop.

In retrospect, I think the deletion of UnMod ended up punishing the innocent, and just making the guilty very angry. OffTopic's, erm..."erecting" process could probably have been achieved just as easily by renaming the forum, stating the rules, and banning anyone who broke them afterwards.

Ironically, the mass bans and the culmination of UnMods deletion resulted in probably the worst backlash in site history, and alienated 90% of the community that was here (regardless of their contributions or lack thereof, they were still community members). I agree with Dhsu that a "phase-in" grace period would've been a MUCH better way to do it, and wouldn't have left nearly as bad of a taste in peoples' mouths. Never mind what the staff themselves had to say about the whole debacle, and of course the glorifying the entire event (as seen above from Radiowar). It's all old hat by now, though. The forums are boring, and that's okay.
