Mods are normally sanctionned like any kind of user for breaking any major forum rules... Sanctionning mods is simply not an habit
Wait a minute. How can you say this and then say
And when the system was brought to the boards ... well, of course you can't warn/moderate/mute an admin. Admins can remove these sanctions at will.
Can admins be sanctioned or not? Obviously "a firm scolding" isn't enough to stop abuse of power.
of course you can't warn/moderate/mute an admin. Admins can remove these sanctions at will.
Well then how about making It so that admins/mods can be warned/moderated/muted and once an admin/mod receives an infraction they can't remove infractions? At least from themselves?
I saw that, and made a pretty pissed off topic in the admin section about it. The main answer I got from the admins who took a shot at the users didn't sound very repentant though, although Hakumen at least apologized for his bad mood on that day. (I guess I can transmit these apologies to the users ? If not, well, my bad, that was an unintentionnal "leak".)
Yes, you did handle that situation better than the others and actually did something about the suggestion presented. I commend you for that.
well, that's a pretty stupid reason to sanction people indeed.
I personnally exposed my opinion on the matter and stated that the warning for a "spammy" word was a bit harsh, since a simple edit would have sufficed.
But SW blew it out of proportion and started using report abuses too, so well ...
Well It's nice to see that we agree about something.
If you really need to add something to your post and want EVERYONE to be notified about it, there's the simple trick or copying the first info, deleting thepost, and posting a new post with both the first and second info. Takes a few seconds and is quite better for the lisibility.
Fair enough. I guess that works too.
You can't upload viruses in BV.
Well technically all you need to say is that the Brawlvault is only for hacks. Since there's been a few times where custom stages (as in Stage Builder stages) have been uploaded, there are some people that didn't quite get that immediately. So stating that It's only for hacks will get that message across to those people as well as covering the Captain Obvious "no viruses" rules at the same time. Not that there ever have been viruses uploaded to the vault. Well, as far as I know anyway.
You can't put submissions in the Vault that let you earn money from it.
Then something should be done about this guy.
He put a donation link in the description for his hacks, possibly because he needs money as motivation to hack. This was already discussed apparently, but you did just say you aren't allowed to earn money from hacks.
I've been warned before, so has Oizen and stickman.
admins could be warned last year. not this year.
So flaming someone in the form of a stage is okay?
I am a firm believer that hackers can make whatever they want. However, for the sake of a less hostile atmosphere on the forums, people should refrain from uploading hacks that insult other hackers into the vault. Also, considering the kind of person Oizen is (I don't really need to illustrate what I mean by that do I?), the fact that the hack was deleted and any information of what It was was removed, It really seemed like the hack was removed because Oizen couldn't handle being insulted. The fact that he didn't want people talking about Kitty Leaks adds to this.
Now I wonder what was in the DL link.
Then I'll PM you the download link so you can see for yourself.
