Ok, This post has succeeded in doing something to me that has rarely happened. I am mad. I am an extreamly diplomatic person, but I feel the need to say something people may not like.
First off, let me point out something special, a little friend, the small "X" box at the top of the window. He will come into play later on in this post. I am a reletivly new mod (as well as being fairly young), and I dont always feel I have the seniority to put my opinion in these types of posts. I would like to tonight, because some people I consider friends are hurt over this issue. What would happen if mods couldn't do diddly squat? Anarchy would soon follow, and Terra forums would fall into the abyiss of a certain unnamed forum in the prime of its life. Do we want that? NO. Personally, life with no forums would suck majorly.
Does this show a good impression of this forum to people who were banned, and would love nothing better than for something like this to happpen, or to new members who base this as their first impression?! NO. So why, anytime someone does something (not pointing out any starters of this thread, I consider you all an important part of the forums, and I hold most of you in high esteem) happen and a mod corrects it, trying to be helpful, cause an uproar? If you felt you were wronged, take it up with the mod you have a problem with, PRIVATELY. Which brings us to another sorely missed friend, the PM ability. Most of the mods are open minded, big people who will admit to and fix our mistakes. Why drag them through the mud when pointing out these mistakes?? BUT if you were rightfully corrected and have issues with it or us, deal with it or go to our first friend, the "X" box and CLICK IT. Do it now in fact, because I am going to suggest a new rule be made that you won't like. This "rule" has been an unspoken guideline for CENTURIES. This rule should not have to be made, it should go without saying. This rule is the very same, "Be nice", rule. Every generation someone bends this rule; lets take hitler for example. Not everyone liked what the allies HAD to stop him, but just as with the mods, you should see that it is somehow for the best. If you can't, click my good old "X" friend.
Things like this WILL make this forum unfun. Most mods feel the need to help this fourm BE THE MOST FUN IT CAN BE. The minute that it becomes unfun, Phil has my vote to pull the plug. We will all go our separate ways, and not give it a second thought. Please just be nice, you don't have to be right everytime, that's why Phil made mods. Just let the mods do their jobs.
