Just to clear some stuff up...


Recommended Posts

How does not only the first item occur, but the second as well?

1. The Writers' Thread, a perfectly legitimate, harmless thread, is deleted.

2. A thread by that thread's creator asking what happened is deleted.

What the hell is going on in OCR tonight?

I wanted to set this straight: the second thread that I made was NOT deleted, it was moved to the mod forum. I have spoken with zircon on aim, and he is looking into the deletion of the Writers' Thread.

My previous thread was never intended to be a fight with the mods, I merely wanted to understand the recent occurrences. There are many people on here tonight who have been expressing a great deal of unnecessary modhate. Just because you don't understand doesn't mean that the mods are evil, or that they should be ridiculed. I believe we're all keeping them plenty busy as-is, without all of this whining and complaining.

As with every major issue in this forum's history, this will eventually settle down, and until then I suggest we try to understand each other instead of slinging insults. I suspect this thread will get locked, but I wanted to express these things anyway. I also wanted to express gratitude for the general good work of the mods in keeping these forums clean and (mostly) bot-free. They may still make mistakes, but that doesn't mean they aren't good mods.

I'm sorry you guys, really I am... explanations are great and all, but if you read the description for this forum you'll notice it is specifically for oc remixes, games, music, anime and similar topics... and unless you're explaining how Rikku can see shit through spiral irises, I'm afraid this just won't fly here.

Locked.

There was nothing unmod did good that can't be done in a moderated forum, such as offtopic. Sex-ed, aimms, what have you. The rest was either total shit or pornhentaistuffs that really don't belong on a site that's focused on videogame remixes. When you need that stuff, there's always _chan.

As for the new forums, I'm a total whore for features but it is a bit cluttered. Nothing I can't get used to, though.

I guess the bannings are a bit unfortunate, though.

Are you slow or something?

:(

UnMod meant a lot to those guys. Their livelyhood has just been shattered into a million pieces. That's more than "unfortunate"

And, as I said, there's nothing Unmod did well that can't be done just as well in the moderated forums. Seriously, what are we really going to lose other than the name? "lol I just posted tubgirl in this thread bask in my hilarity"?

And besides, who is really that dependent on Unmod for entertainment/advice anyway? That's just disturbing.

Er, actually, the description says ocremix, not oc remixes. Certainly seems like the place for discussing ocremix's forum for me, unless that sort of thing is banned altogether. Maybe that's why this thread isn't actually locked.

I just realized that the writing comps thread is gone.

OH NOES!

Seriously though, I'm with G_D, theres a lot going on with the forums right now, so I'll let the mods sort this out and not engage in needless mod hate.

EDIT: Wait, I don't actually think its completely gone... just the last half of it. When you click on the banner in my sig nothing comes up, but the link from G_D's sig has a thread with only 3 pages in it... last time I checked the thread had 7 pages. Hmm.

It's best to let djp win. Even if he bans all of the UnModders, he still would have destroyed most of the site's activity.

unmod was the only reason i came back after a year hiatus. this place kinda sucks, but the say what you feel attitude of the unmodders is what made this place worthwhile.

That would be because G_D never updated the link (as a matter of fact, I'm not sure if I did either...). His link is going to the old thread on the php forum. The php forum still exists, so his link works. Your link, on the other hand, doesn't work because it went to the thread on this forum, which was deleted. Still haven't heard a reason why.
