Im getting complaints ok so i did 1 or 2 things wrong but hey you learn by doing some things wrong
BUT WHY DO I GET HATED BY MOST FORUMS?
01-10-2002, 03:31 AM
I've sent you a PM about thinking and reading before posting a reply. I don't hate you at all, why should I?

Because i post to much and made a few errors why bother this has happened to me on about 8+ forums...
01-10-2002, 03:47 AM
ok im staying ive come to the conclusion why i get banned by most forums why? because i post to much ( i think :( )
i guess the only reason i post to much is because i always wanted to be a moderator but i guess that's never going to happen unless i own a forum which i think im going to have to if i ever want to be a moderator or a adminstrator...
after all i think we all want to be a mod but i guess we all are to greedy and get banned from forums! trying to become mods/admins

We will not complain if you post a lot, only if the posts are not relevant or if you are repeating other replies because you didn't take the time to read the complete thread.

Its at times like these that your age (13 I think) really shines through. If you get upset, leave the computer alone, go and do something else. Theres far more to life than getting upset at a forum on the internet.

Actually, I'd have to disagree there T-Bag. You don't have to own a board to become a moderator or admin.
But you do have to be able to MODERATE your behavior and your words. And at 13, you (personally) are still inclined to temper tantrums and have no level of professionalism in your actions or words. We have other members of this forum that just about your same age that carry themselves with alot more maturity.
So rather than complaining and whining about how we are sensoring you or that we won't give you what you want, why not try to integrate yourself into this forum and be a productive member, eh? We have some experts and gurus around here that have been contributing for quite a while, and I guarentee you that they are in line for Moderator or Admin way ahead of you.
It takes most people a few posts to get a feel for how this place works and what is OK to post and what is not. I suggest you start by looking over our Posting Guidelines, and then follow a few simple rules:
1) Be mature and professional
2) Keep your temper and watch your language
3) Be respectful to others and don't annoy others
This could be sent via Private Message, however there are others on this board that will benefit from what has been said.
So, I hope you decide to stay and contribute... but if you refuse to adhere to our rules and culture, you will be made gone, as has happened on other boards with you ("why i get banned by most forums").
This is our playground. Bullies and troublemakers are escorted away. If you will play nice, you are welcome. Kick us in the shins, and you'll have to find another.

T-Bag, the admins and moderators here have been part of the community for a while. They are people that I trust. I didn't add them as admins or moderators because of the amount of posts they made. If you look at the mod list you'll see some with small amounts of posts. I added them because of the way they interact with people and the way they remained cool in heated threads. This forum couldn't run without them. I have other ventures that keep me from being here all the time and if this board went unmoderated it would turn out to be what many other forums are. The moderators and admins show me that they are dedicated to maintaining a high standard.
What could you do to be added as a mod in the future?
Show that you can remain calm no matter what happens.
If someone corrects a mistake in one of your posts don't be argumentative, but, instead accept what they said and learn from it.
Give it time. Some of the moderators like Paul and Mill were here when I first took over the forum 2 years ago.
The admins and mods do watch what is going on here and if they believe a user would be a good mod chances are that user will become one.
Enjoy the forum for a while. Share your knowledge and learn from the others. You never know what might happen down the road.
