The blink 182 general discussion topic

Recommended Posts

lol so your argument is, because im not letting people troll we arent aimed at dedicated fans? Whoa!

also, yes when a site or business has an owner and a group of people they trust we all make decisions on how to handle certain things. The person in the end of has the final say...wait for it, shit you guessed it. The mother fucker who pays the bills.

I don't think it was trolling. More along the lines of trying to be funny. Remember when blink tried to be funny? Sometimes successful, sometimes not?

I didn't frequent this forum for a long time due to inactivity.

Activity is what "we" need. (Blink fans)

I think the problem is you decided to put the hammer down on his post. He at least had a joke with a video to back it up. If you think misleading title threads should be locked, that's fine and I actually agree with that. But there's been real trolls the last month posting threads like this, some of them genuine members, maliciously phishing to fool people. Therefore, I could see why he's insulted with the announcement you made of not tolerating trolls and lumping him with them after nothing had been said before when they did it.

? We posted about it being against the rules. The hammer has been put down on all of them


Also hate to quote urban dictionary but

redhot's intent was obviously not to mislead, it was a joke -- what he does around here. i understand the perspective of rules are rules, but guy's been a member for a while now. and as he said, there were a trillion troll threads back in the day. and does anyone think there's going to be an official video for brohemian rhapsody? lol

why do people think that because someone has been a member for a while now it matters?

because it does. if aria came in there with a joke thread, would your first instinct as a mod be to ban him for a day (though... i don't think that capability is available, as he's an admin, but my point stands)? what about kyle or any of the other well-regarded members here that have posted for years and never done anything wrong. i understand banning/locking a thead created by ilovemarkhoppus69 or tom_come_back44, but this was a thread worthy of discussion, albeit with a somewhat misleading title. i get it, you have a job to do, but it does seem like overreaction

Also because consistent posters who have stuck around for a while are what make this website and keep it alive - not mods catering to people looking for blink news who will be gone a week after the album drops.

And, if I took anything personal, it's that the title of the thread was altered. Just delete it if it's that big of an issue - you really don't have to baby-proof it for these skittish new members you're so concerned with.

Well, it would be silly for Aria to come in and make a thread when we had agreed to lock these threads. Whilst i wouldnt lock it id be asking him why he is making rules irrelevant as then i would expect backlash. Kyle is also a moderator and yes i would lock the thread. I would not lock an Admin thread (honestly im not sure if i even can)

I have been here since 2003..if i do something against the rules then the ramifications are on my head.

Power trip...okie dokie mate.

 

Warnings are greater than locked threads? I agree. He didn't get a warning. A warning on here puts a strike against your name and then the option to limit your activity

What is done is done, if another mod or admin disagree's so be it, ill have a discussion with them. A joke is fine, this was deliberately getting people to click on a link thinking something had been released..

I won't lie when i saw who had posted it, i thought it would be real as he is a good poster and I like his posts they are usually quite witty. I'm pretty sure I have done the majority of topic locking in the blink subforum. Only issue i have had so far is that this one was done to a member who is generally well regarded. Status should make no difference when it does then thats when the forum is fucked. To people not remember the old regime when admins and shit acted like they owned this place and held that above people? I think this is proof that because someone is well regarded it means jack.

My favourite members on here that aren't mods are my fellow aussies and most of the brits (nothing against the US'ers but the time difference usually means we dont chat offline) If any of them did the same thing i'd lock it the same way.

Lets end this discussion. The mods/admins can have a chat to review the rule and if we go the other way ill be the first to unlock the topic. But I wont apologise for doing something we agreed was against the rules.

Yeah that's also part of it. This is what Oliver posted a month ago:

I debated making this topic as it would give the trolling more attention, but I also didn't want newer members or others to get fed up and leave.The spamming is not a normal occurrence here. A solution is being worked and we hope to have it taken care of soon. Please be patient. In the meantime please do not reply to any of the topics. We will continue to delete them/ban the offender. Thanks.

This seemed like a pretty direct response to that crazy dude who kept making fake accounts and going apeshit everywhere. Doesn't really seem to say legit members can't post threads like the one I did.

This addendum from Dildo didn't show up until directly after my thread was edited/ locked:

Also adding that from now any fake links or troll threads will be locked and the user denied access for one day.

I just don't come here for my shit to be censored, and I don't think I became a blink because I'm big on strict anti-fun rules enforced with no discretion.

I added the bit to the official mod post today yes, but we mentioned it in the GD a few times when it was first decided. There is a thread for it in the mod section. I added it today as i realised it wasnt made obvious enough for us to follow through and ban someone for a day. We actually decided this rule prior to us being barraged with the same douchebag.

Last thing ill say on the matter. There is no discussion about the podcast mark was on today where he details teh majority of the songs yet is there? Wasnt before all this started

Last thing I'll say: College Humor released a video and song called "Brohemian Rhapsody" a few years ago. The intent of my thread was for people to sigh when they saw it wasn't a new blink video, and then watch the hilarious/ relevant link I posted and discuss it. I still recommend checking out that video; it's pretty funny.

Besides Speedo's posts probably not. 

Don't bring me into this! I haven't done shit lately ... I've been a good boy, don't make me change that!
