An interesting email from the VO forums.

Due to my frequent bannings on viridianocean.com, i've only been able to visually see what is going on on that board for about fourty minutes in the last few months. In saying that, i also have no soapbox to tart about what i do infact have access to. So this'll make due.

 
The following is an email sent to you by an administrator of "Viridian Ocean Forums". If this message is spam, contains abusive or other comments you find offensive please contact the webmaster of the board at the following address:

hunterocean.com@hunterocean.com

Include this full email (particularly the headers).

Message sent to you follows:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well maybe they only love your wallet.

http://www.hunterocean.com
http://www.yppsucks.com

Please, the websites above will be removed forever if the Ringers decide to not steal money and items from entire flags (or even a single person).

Arigatou.

V


Last i checked, both of these websites are/were owned by Subliminal. So this is a message to any admins on VO that care to get involved. Why is it that you continue to support an administrator with such a heavy hand? He says he is leaving, but never does. He bans some of the top contributors for petty reasons.

Did it ever occur to you that perhaps our random outbursts are fueled, and shaped, around the fact that some of us aren't willing to be leashed and dragged around? Ultimately, conforming to a set of rules that are completely ad hominem purely to allow a certain bittered, out-dated admin to sleep better at night?

Call it what you will but i moderated that forum fairly for eight months, and always stuck to the jurisdiction of my task. To be a banned member and see this blatant attempt of moral recruitment and hatrid towards what should be a personal, customer service leveled agenda -- it makes me sick.

Either unban me, Antix, and whoever else, and control the provoking medium or get out of my email inbox. Every time a foolish move is made, VO forums become more of an offspring and less dignified to the efforts that Caesarae made to establish a quality forum.

Call me remenescent, but at one point VO forums was similar to a raw, political, disgruntled family. This included Subliminal. I used to enjoy having somebody to spar with. But you can't spar with somebody who has the power to ban you, throw you to the curb, change passwords, lock topics, remove moderators, and tear apart any form of structure that an environment such as a forum once had.

Re: An interesting email from the VO forums.

I apologise for not acting sooner. The problem has been solved as best I can at the moment.

Again I apologise to everyone who was removed from access to those forums, if you'd like to regain it, please PM me HERE as I'm not going to go through the thousands of members we have individually and correct the problem one by one that way.

Re: An interesting email from the VO forums.

I really see no purpose for the continuation of the maintenance of those forums. They used to be frequented by a much larger portion of the Viridian population, and new topics were hot and debated fervently. This is no longer the case; it is a rare sight to see even a new thread, and the ocassional entertaining verbal sparring seems to have migrated over here. Simply said, they had their heydey, but all good things must come to an end.

Re: An interesting email from the VO forums.

I think I would have to agree what is the point of those forums now anyway? We have our own parley forum here, so we should just use these ones so everyone knows what is going on. I personally don't go on VO forums because I feel that there is no point in using them.

They went downhill fast, right around the time when Sub would ban people who insulted him.

Aye, I rarely venture over there as well. Quality of content has dropped dramatically over the last few months...

Re: An interesting email from the VO forums.

i got that email as well.

eh.. i think VO forums would be a good place to go if we want to be a little more graphic in what we say on there. I enjoy going on those forums actually when we actually have a fun topic or something stupid going on.

but maybe that is just my personality i don't take things so seriously and i goof around. Basically that site is good for fast information and quick in making friends... this site is not so quick when you want to find something related to just viridian.

VO forums is on a more personal level and SOMETIMES a little more laid back. Its whatever "atmoshpere" you prefer.

Re: An interesting email from the VO forums.

I won't be back to VO forums for various reasons - including barrelstoppery by said person who triggered this thread in the first place. I advise anyone with half a brain to do the same, as Des said - what's the point anymore?

EDIT: Language.

You are back as admin and I deleted my account there. Have fun.

Oh and Twiggy. You are a disgusting person.

Be glad. I agree, it's dead, dead, dead. And the fact that he tells people not to have vanity threads but then posts one in Announcements and justifies it by saying he's an admin is......whatever.

Anyways, I lost official respect when he told me to remove my "Out of Office"message from Outlook on my work email because it could trigger me to be categorized as spam. I get approximately 60 emails a day, 84 on one record day. If I didn't tell people I was out, hell would break loose. Every person on the planet uses an out-of-office message. Well, everyone who has an office.

It had nothing to do with you. It had nothing to do with Kristi, or Brock, or anybody but the person i was "disgusting" to.

Re: An interesting email from the VO forums.

(laughs hysterically)

remember boys and girls..."absolute power corrupts absolutely"...I wondered how long it would take for this to hit the forum...I was gonna post the day i got the email but refrained.

I've had a lot of posts yanked...for what reason....some because "they didn't fit the post format" and some for other various lame reasons.

Sub has the power...let him have it.People don't post there anymore anyway....it's a ghostown.

<edit> Just checked and both websites have been taken down.....wonder why?
