Dessy has decided to stepdown as a Moderator (hence why we appointed Kaspar recently). I think we can all agree Des has been a fine Moderator. Thank you for your time and efforts, Des!

We are very happy with Discord activity & the way guests have fitted in to the community by following the link on the homepage. We must remember though, that is the forum's chat.

Therefore, we are creating a rule that guests have 7 days to sign up & create an introduction thread on the forum. They should not be immediately pressured, but if a guest has stuck around on the Discord for a few days - encourage them to sign up. If not, they will be removed after the 7 days.

Thanks.

KrisCross has decided to step down as a Moderator due to time commitments. Whilst not that active the last couple of months, Kris has been an amazing Moderator, and I hope we see him back either as staff or as a member in the future.

Freakism has also been removed as a Community Ambassador due to time commitments.

We are making it easier to send in complaints about users on the Discord, and they may be anonymous. I've not set it up just yet, but there will be a link on the #gayteenforum channel in which you can detail the complaint and provide screenshots.

After discussion among Moderators, it has been decided to give George a one month ban for the following reasons.
-Inappropriate behaviour as a staff member.
-Continuous patterns of disruptive behaviour.
-Evidence of inaccurate manipulation of facts among multiple members in an attempt to cause feuds and drama.

Am delighted to announce Cobalt is back as a Moderator :) Although he hasn't been tremendously active over the last 12 months and ultimately stepped down, JT does have 20,000 posts and has assured me that he is looking forward to getting back into the community and meeting the newer members :keke: He's an experienced head and I'm looking forward to him helping out with the Year Cup and having him back around again :awesome:

As JT previously won a confirmation poll and was told when he was moved to Emeriti that he is welcome back if he feels he has the necessary time - no confirmation poll is necessary :)

The administrators and moderators have made a unanimous decision to permanently ban Ethan / Unseasoned Chicken / Dua Lipa.

He has previously had no fewer than 8 warnings and 2 temporary bans of escalating duration (most recently for more than 2 months), for reasons including, but not limited to:
  • The use of racist and aggressive slurs;
  • Persistent harassment;
  • Searching for and publishing private or identifying information about other members;
  • Intentionally triggering people with mental health problems;
  • Unusually cruel bullying, especially of people with mental health problems. In particular, people who have (or who he thinks appear to have) autism-spectrum conditions appear to be his favourite victims.

Earlier today, the following interaction was reported to us independently by multiple very concerned members:

Also of note is the following:

Apparently, even this is the nice, caring version that he's faking until New Year, after which things will go back to being even worse.

This guy has no shame. He seems to completely lack self-awareness. He appears to be a sadist.

I will not allow anyone to turn GTF into a hostile environment for vulnerable teenagers.

I am all for second chances, and Ethan has had many. He just doesn't seem to care at all, and 8 warnings and 2 bans of escalating duration have made no difference in his behaviour, except for a slight, calculated, temporary improvement after which he knows he will get banned again when he dials it back up. On purpose. :shake:

Ironically, Ethan is probably suffering from some serious mental health problems himself. I hope he eventually gets the professional help that he needs, and that no one will make fun of him.

I understand some people are still unclear about the reasons for Ethan / Unseasoned Chicken / Dua Lipa's ban.

Full details are in the post above, but crucially, I would like to stress:

Ethan openly admitted that he planned to get banned after New Year.

Anyone who's sad that he's gone, take note: he didn't intend to stay here with us in the first place.

Kyler (Example) has decided to step down as a mod. He plans to continue being active as a regular member and assisting staff with graphics, which we very much appreciate! We love you Kyler, and thank you for your hard work as a member of the mod team. :keke: :heart:

Our favorite Aussie, Tim, has decided to step down as a moderator. We hope he sticks around, he is an absolute sweetheart and he will be sorely missed by the rest of the mod team. His level head, maturity and critical thinking have been an asset to us for a long time. Thanks so much for all your hard work, Tim. :wtc: :heart:

I'm stepping down as a moderator, taking either a very long break or going for good. I really enjoyed my job for the first 7/8 months but not recently, which is not a surprise. I was mildly considering just leaving for more than a month now but constantly found some reason to stay, especially since there are only 3 mods right now and despite what some people tell you, no it's not always enough - now being even less than that. I've been long tired of the constant drama shitstorms, especially on the personal level, to deal with on here that most of the time left me either pissed, upset or a mixture of both, changed GTF from being enjoyable and fun like before to being a dull, stressful chore.
That's all on my part, great thanks for the ability to help out with the site for so long :heart:
