On September 17th, 2013 Zodiark was issued a warning and temporarily banned for breaking Rule 7.

After failing to comply with this warning, Zodiark was permanently banned on September 5th, 2014; after it had been brought to our attention that he indeed had broken Rule 7 numerous times since his first ban.

This is by no means an improvement but your favorite otter William has decided to step down as an active moderator for the time being to pursue his destiny in a very particular niche of the film industry. Just kidding :P

William is very busy with University and "having a life outside of the internet" whatever that means, but he apologizes and sends his warm regards to everyone. Will shall retain his moderator privileges and continue to frequent the forum as his schedule permits but any questions/ concerns/ or needs should be addressed to either Dom, Morgan, or myself henceforth.

Post Note:
Anyone who wishes to remain in contact with William can do so by PM'ing me to obtain his contact info

I decided to do this about a month ago but was too busy, then I forgot. However, since this is a matter of public wellbeing, I'm going to do it now. I claim the right by proconsular imperium.

JAFKJAFK, who had four prior warnings, has been banned permanently for "Bumping, pornography, trolling, ID misbehaviour, reasonably suspected age violation, and now spamming."

Following recent spam activity on the forum, and the reaction to this, the moderators wish to draw attention to the Edict concerning obvious spamming activity, as denoted in the Edicts. Please report these topics instead of commenting on them, as it makes it a lot easier to deal with and clean it up for us.

Thank you.

On November 13th, Hnngh (Matt) was temporarily banned for two weeks following a number of complaints referencing his bullying, flaming, and harassment. Upon investigation, the moderator team found these complaints to be fully substantive, and thus took the aforementioned action.

The moderator team would like to remind all members that bullying and flaming will not be tolerated. Should you feel like this is happening to you at any point, please report your concerns via either the post reporting function or via a PM to a moderator.

I am pleased to report that Hnngh (Matt) has volunteered to have his account deactivated permanently. I hope that this will mark the end of the recent drama.

We regret to inform you that we lost some of your avatars in a tragic excel spreadsheet accident, happy April Fools day? (I'm completely serious) :rip:



We did manage to salvage a numerous amount of previous avatars, which have been changed back. If yours has been lost forever feel free to call me bad names here. We weren't aware that uploading new avatars to your profiles would overwrite them because the paths were user specific. We do apologize for any inconveniences. -Morgan

I shall announce this due to the lies and falsity that is surrounding why 'Adam :D' was banned.

On the 20th April, 'Adam :D' was banned for 80 days. Previously, a significant number of members spoken to me about the pressure they were feeling because of what Adam was saying to them. It is not fair on other members to emotionally compromise themselves because of the psychological state of others. We are not trained therapists and no member on here should feel they are a potential trigger for suicide or depressive thoughts - it is simply not fair. This was a factor as to why he was banned.

The key reason Adam was banned was because of serious threats he made. Threats, I shall say, that had criminal intent. He was absolutely not banned because 'people hate him' or 'he has depression', as has been suggested. Regardless of the situation, personal threats with significant substance will never be tolerated on here. I actually thought I was lenient considering the nature of the threat.

Like always, the situation was discussed in the Staff Area sub-forum and there was no objections to a ban.

Finally, Adam is 100% aware of the reasons why he was banned and I have spoke to him; despite what he is saying to other members. He is doing himself no favours whatsoever lying about the reasoning behind it when he speaks to others and dissenting.

It's that time of year again.

As the human spam bots migrate past the forum board, they like to leave behind a lot of droppings. Here are some things to remember if you come into contact with these pests.

• Do not reply to any spam threads made by bots, it makes removing those threads more of a hassle than it needs to be.

• When sighted, report any and all posts via the reporting functionhighlighted exclamation mark shown below located at the top right of each post.Image

• Give thanks to your Moderating Gods through sacrificial and material offerings. We also accept cash and/or credit.

Anyone looking to change their username, or deactivate their account will have to contact a Moderator to do so. Moderators are users whose names are highlighted, and bolded in blue.

We do not normally allow more than one change to a person's username, so be very sure with your final decision when picking a new name. Moderators are under no obligation to change your username, but will do so at their own discretion after reviewing your request. If you have any questions regarding this post, feel free to private message me.

A quick update on a situation many of you have been talking about on and off for a while.

On December 3rd, with the approval of both Jon and Joe, I went forward and banned both Madasahat, and Artmetica for the use of multiple accounts/catfishing. After weeks of speculative doubt, and accusations were made across the community; the moderating staff had enough reason to confront both users on the matter. I clearly explained to both users what the situation was, and that I required proof of identification or they would be banned in due time. I gave them multiple weeks to prove themselves otherwise.

One user ignored my message completely after the other didn't deny said accusations, and asked for the immediate deactivation of his account. Their bans can still be repealed with the proof of their identity, which I've already clearly explained to them both how they may go about doing so.

If anyone has more questions, comments, or information on this matter please feel free to contact me.

If you have had a run in with someone pretending to be someone they are not on this forum, please report them to a Moderator. Thank you.

As of 20th December 2015, active games threads in Wasteland have been moved to the Games & Competitions subforum. We've done this because games are an easy way for new members to increase their post count and get to know established members. Also, it makes sense based on the name of the subforum itself.

This is part of the changes we've been discussing in The Great GTF Revival threads, and we intend to be making several more over the next few weeks.

Anyone looking to create new forum games can post theirs in Games & Competitions from now on.

Regarding the recent drama involving Ren and AxelVan's shared IP address: Ren has proven her authenticity to me and thus will be allowed to remain a member of the forum.

If you should have any questions regarding my actions or the situation in general then I'd be more than happy to talk with you- just send me a PM.

We are aware of a user signing up to advertise his new forum to a lot of you. This clearly breaches our rules, and he has been banned. If something like this occurs again, remember you can report PMs.

I even made a pink box around it. Snazzy.

Thanks.

Following his persistent breaking of the rules and comments directed towards certain members over the last six months, as well his reaction following recent drama, noface99 has been banned permanently. We are satisfied and in no doubt he was given enough chances.

We wish Phil all the best for the future.

The Bastard Bourbon has been banned after we discovered he exceeds the forum age limit. This was his only offense and he doesn't seem to have been aware of the fact that he was exceeding it.

Due to repeated infringments and after a multitude of warnings from a number of moderators, plus the severity of his comments, jr1999 has been banned from the forum until Christmas Eve 2016.

We hope that Jeff will be able to return to the forum as the poster he was when he first joined and put his recent shenanigans behind him if and when he decides to return.
