    Honestly, I did laugh when you put it, but then again if it was a member who had said it it would have resulted in a infraction/ban.

    I and I know many other think the same about this, but it does seem like the Staff do not have rules and can say what they like and get away with it, I think maybe if they do say something that would get a member a infraction they should get one and maybe a short ban from being a staff member.

    The staff are suppose to be the most mature people on the site, granted a few are but a few can be dicks and use there power to insult other and pick on people they dislike by giving out infraction for stuff they would give a infraction to another member for.

    Fair enough. They should still get some sort of punishment tho, we get banned for limited times, why shouldn't they?

    We also get banned if we accumulate the amount of points that merit the ban (I.E 30 points for a day ban).

    If they get up to the required Infraction points, they do get banned though. I had this conversation with Seasn Ages ago. If a mod breaks the rules a Super Mod infracts them. If they get to say 30 infraction points, they get banned for a day. etc etc.

    1. If you act like a cuntflap, be prepared to be labelled one.
    2. I have been infracted a fair few times while being a moderator, as well have other mods, and we can still get banned.
    3. I hate everyone, thus, infract everyone the same.

    While I understand your problem, as having just been infracted, your anger might be slightly misplaced, as while you are upset at the nature of your infraction, if you hadn't done something to deserve that infraction, then you would have had no exposure to the word 'cuntflap'.

    Has a member of staff ever been banned?

    If you remember Kris stole someones work, if that was a member there would have been a ban/perma ban. Granted Kris did stay away from the site for a while but I bet he didn't get anything for it?

    I think they can be Danny, i just dont think that they let their points build up often enough to result in a ban. And if we were without a few mods because of a ban who would keep the site running properly?
    Off topic i know but how come everybody ignores me?

    Quick question. Did Redders get an infraction when he infracted me for being a 'super 'tard'? Curious.

    No we wouldnt off, that is stupid.. Kris was ridiculed for ages.. If we stole someone else work, it would be taken down and thread closed. End of matter.

    But if I'd have said what I said then followed it by my last post on that thread I wouldn't have got the infraction. The only reason I got it was due to me not saying what I said in one post.

    Seems unfair.

  16. Man the fuck up people that are whining, its an infraction that will expire, you arent banned so just live with it, life goes on...

    How is it unfair?

    If someone posted two posts, one saying:

    lol
    and one, about a hour later, saying:

    I just signed Barry Hayles for Man United
    Would that negate the pointless/one word post?

    No.

    So suck it up.

    As far as I'm aware, a Staff Member hasn't been banned, but I think that's mostly down to the fact that when they get an infraction they think "Fuck, I need to sort it out and not break the rules again" as they have more to lose than a regular member.

    To my recollection, no (Though I have no idea about that infraction, there are a lot given out) but that's because 1. The 'reason' for infraction just needs to be filled and so sometimes we attempt to be creative. 2. They're in jest and so his 'super-tard' thing wasn't serious (As far as I know).

    Okay then, just seems a wee bit unfair.I called it him as a drawback to that infraction, seems he took it more serious.

    So, by staying on-topic which is a rule I got a infraction?

    I gave both negative and constructive criticism.

    Do you understand the concept of rules?

    By abiding by one, doesn't negate the fact that you broke another.

    TBH If you have a query about Redders infraction you, you should either PM him or Sean. As Redders is a admin. He is above Alfie. So alfie really cant comment on the Infractions redders hands out.

    I think people need to chill out more when they get an infraction.
    People take it so personally if a mod calls them a dick.
    If a mod calls you a dick, just think were you acting like a dick beforehand.
    99% percent of the time the mods are right.
    Fair enough sometimes they over react but that rarely occurs.
    Face the concequences like men,guys

    Aha, I dern't not. I reported a post by Redders, he seen it and sent me the original infraction. Same thing would probably occur.

    People do this on a daily basis, yes I bet they don't get a infraction.

    Good point, people also need to stop sucking up to them, as it gets you nowhere

  29. I remember when I got my first infraction, it was like "wth?!". Rechecked the forum rules, then it was like "duh!". Deserved. Haven't made the same mistake since.

    I got a 15 point infraction from Sean for calling Scott a cunt. Mods get infractions all the time, you lot just dont get to see them.

    Only Jake and Kris cry about them

    I've probably had more infraction then anyone on this site, and I don't recall arguing with one, bar one time when I got a ban. Only to find out I had points that should have expired.

    But I really do feel some infractions/mods are unfair.

    Yes, in that comment I did give negative criticism. But people say worse then this on a daily basis and I bet they don't get punished for it.

    However, if you look further down I did give some positive comments.

    Each post is treated separately as far as i can tell... And how do you know people dont get infracted.

  38. Does it take a while to "write out" an infraction on somebody?

    Because although i understand the size of this site, and no way can be totally monitored all the time, but i have seen occasions where things have been let go, that others get massively stung for with mods in attendance. And that is also taking into account warnings before hand.

    I was thinking is it like a paper work issue, "can i be arsed"... you know UK Police mentality sort of thing

    But your origional comment caused someone to react, and get banned for a week.

    Think before you post next time, if you have more to say, then say it.

    Also, I would love to hear where you get your information about infractions? I am pretty sure we infract most, if not all, posts worthy of infractions.

    Mainly because the QQ PM's are just so much gosh darn fun.

    Doesn't take long, and everytime we infract someone, we get some man points, so it's all good.

    Sometimes we even have a race to see who can give out the infraction first.

    *Sigh* I can tell I'm not going to win this, as I feel many of you are missing the point.

    I never argue with a infraction, as I always do get on with stuff, but I seriously do feel some are unfair and not needed.

    It takes barely any time, the Staff of this site never - as far as I know - think 'I can't be asked to infract this guy' and move on as it doesn't take much effort. In fact, I think the majority enjoy giving them out

    Also, about your 2nd paragraph... How do you know things have been 'let go'? Only Staff can see when a post has been infracted.

    The real man points are given out to those who say something in attempt to get someone else infracted.

    Have to say pretty much agree with you on that one as I noticed earlier. Helped a few people out elsewhere. But I've been on this site a while now, and I've seen a few brown-nosers lol. Like yourself I have no qualms in helpin people out whatsoever. Okay I've made a few hiccups along the way, but I tried lol. Never been accused though. (touching wood)

  48. So, being a Mod is a fun 'job' Dunc ?

    Fair enough... and ye by the looks of this thread it does seem an enjoyable task to infract people

    And i guess i don't really touche i suppose i didn't take into account when individuals get banned for something someone else doesn't, they may have wracked up points before hand... ill get my coat.
