As I understand it master code collector "WarChild" has been hit with a 30 day ban (so it's obviously not his first run in with the mod team) for a rule infringement I personally didn't even notice when I read and replied to said post the other day, a post I found to be rather good to be honest

 

Now I'm not saying that just because he actually contributes something useful around here he should get preferential treatment but seeing what passes under the radar of the ever vigilant mod team here ..... well, expressing my honest opinion of the mod team would most likely earn me a ban too (and I have had a run in with them and know from personal experience what they are like) so I won't but you can use your imagination and I'll leave it that

Maybe you should have joined the Union mate, they couldn't have touched you if you had

 

 

Hang in there mate, those of us who read the post in question will most likely agree that a 30 day ban for something nobody even noticed is just silly and to the mod team, here's what I think of your work around here .....

Can you tell us what the post was about w/o getting yourself in trouble? Want to make sure I don't make the same mistakes.

be careful Dr. , i think this might be flagged as questioning staff actions and may get a sanction in itself.

I don't know what the post was, but definitely be very careful with sarcasm as some moderators will take things quite literal.  Highly suggest highlighting anything that is sarcastic with a "/sarcasm" or whatever.

Fellas, WarChild appreciates the sentiments and tells me not to worry about the Codes.  He's entrusted me with the responsibilities during his vacation.  DrWho, you need to edit your OP here ASAP as I'm POSITIVE it will not be received well by those who review these things.

Very much so THIS.  Please edit your OP and just leave it as an appreciation thread.

 

Again, if WarChild were here, he'd be very thankful for your post (I see he is reading it below - Hi WarChild!)

I read the post before it was removed, and can not remember anything that warrant a ban. But I did read through it quickly, and might of missed something.

BTW - You can't see what WarChild wrote, but this was the thread: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/609823-rage-postcongrats-mm-has-effectively-killed-my-will/

 

If you want to read what WarChild wrote and his feelings toward the Forum Moderators, you'll need to look to Reddit for that.  ;)

Yes but his post has been deleted so there's not much you can gain from reading it really

You can see my reply to him and my thoughts on what he posted in the link above but what actually got him banned .... no idea

I've had run ins with the mod teams in the past, if the decide to give me a ban for this I'll at least have done some thing to earn it this time unlike before

I'm really surprised to hear this.  I have never seen him say anything derogatory or demeaning towards anyone.  In fact, just the opposite.

It was apparently in a response to my post...see it a bit down the General Discussion list, starting with the title ‘(rage post)...’...and fyi, I don’t know what the issue was.

 

By the way, I support free speech and expression, with censorship only appropriate under egregious circumstances.  One guy’s opinion :)

This was a sincere question, but tyvm for the heads up. :)

It was not derogatory, however, he did use the name of a well known political figure (not even negatively, just the name) and that is likely what caught the attention of the reviewer.  FYI - if you search Reddit for "Wargaming Forum Moderators", you can see everything you would want to know.

 

WarChild's previous infractions involved jokes about teamkilling that were taken too literally (twice) - even though they were clearly sarcastic.   Apparently, forum posters aren't the only ones with personal issues.

Ah ok.  That'll do it.  I got my strikes for the same type of things.

Sorry WarChild to hear of your troubles. I hate censorship...As one of my heroes Billy Hayes once exhorted "May it pass quickly"....As my Mom used to say "If you can say something nice, say it louder!" ok She really said it as "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything" but that's not as much fun. May it pass quickly.
