Staff vs. Members - Point proven!

Rate this Entry
Ok first of all I shall note if I see any random replies posted on this blog post, go have your fun elsewhere. I'm highly disappointed and offended by the actions that occured not long ago.

So basically, my mind came across with an idea and I decided to carry it out. Thus, I created [url=http://www.equestriaforever.com/showthread.php/9822-If-the-user-above-passed-away-I-would]this thread.[/url] So ok what have we here? A regular topic with a simple request in it to follow the OP, but then what? 2 moderators come in and act like they didn't care one BIT. I know they're moderators, and they usually are kind of random, but is it so difficult to follow the OP?

Then I recalled a thread @The Joker posted some time ago and then realized that the point was strengthened again today. [url=http://www.equestriaforever.com/showthread.php/9596-Staff-vs-Members][The original thread.][/url]

P.S. I do have a sense of humour, but the thread wasn't even posted in Forum Humour. I cannot believe how this slipped off of the hands like this.

    It had a lay out like a forum game, like 'The next poster'.
    Of course people will have some fun in it.
    I'm sorry but I think you're highly exaggerating.

    I agree with the overreaction, but I do agree the mods were going out of line a little.

    Well, I couldn't post it in the Forum Games either since Twilight has noted me every time I had an idea for one that there are enough of them even if the idea was good. Then I also wonder why the "Suggest a game by PM blah blah" still stands there?

    Oh, and how come you didn't take the mods' misbehaviour into account at all? Are you just defending them or am I simply not respected by anyone here at all?

    I deny most forum game suggestions because:

    a) There's already an overabundance of forum games

    b) 95% of the suggested games are just a clone of a game already there with the noun/object in question swapped out.

    In other news, if you guys were looking for an example of how members expect the staff to never enjoy themselves on the site, here you go. Would you be reacting the same way if their names weren't blue?

    Not actually. Being moderators they should behave (at least that's what I suppose, being granted the moderator privileges and all) but if a regular user would come in, I wouldn't be surprised. I'm not disrespecting them at this point at all, but like the newbies who made their posts on some of my threads not relative to the OP/OP's idea at all.

    They posted gifs?
    How could they!

    You know that I respect you, I just think perhaps you didn't specify the seriousness of the thread well enough.
    They saw it as a forum game, and thus treated it as such.
    I don't think they did anything wrong, and no I'm not just saying that because they're on the team.
    There are regular members who responded in the same manner, why are you directing your rage against staff only?

    Well you know, their replies could've had a completely different approach than going off-topic/in a non-idealistic way.

    Just so you know you basicly make a thread where if we follow your rules the only correct answer is something like cry or whine about the person passing away. It ws a dumb thread with the lay-out of a forum game as mentioned by Lyra and that's all there is to it. Also you're not really truthfull, nobody would really cry over someone they don't know passing away or at least I wouldn't. We're all people who have never talked to each other irl with the exception of a few. My advice is to think better next time before creating a thread/blog or to specify the meaning better.

    Oh great, you finally noticed the war going on here.

    In all seriousness though, why do you care I posted a thread like that? I too, like some others, do have strong emotions. And you're saying I'm a liar? Well thanks for this flawless experience of joy I just received (not).

    I feel I should state what my intentions were, seeing as a simple joke between two friends has turned into something a lot more drastic.
    Me and @Shining Armor saw the thread, and I joked with him that if he died I would do a little celebratory dance. As he found this funny, I told him that if he posted in the thread I would reply to him with that exact reaction, which he agreed with.
    I have already apologized once for offending you, however it was NEVER the intention of me or Shining to upset or offend you. We were simply trying to inject some humour into what would have been a generally somber thread.

    I do believe you didn't mean to offend me, BUT, going at another way like that isn't a good way to show others a good sample.

    Like already stated elsewhere, your replies could've had a completely different approach. A moderator should always be as clear and as constructive as possible to regular members, so that the point would get passed on.

    This has nothing to do with what I said in my Staff vs Members thread.

    In any case, I'm already done with this case.
