Are People Being Forum Banned Because of Me?

Posted by Merch Gwyar , 25 May 2012 · 1,390 views

I've only just seen this, but it doesn't provide a great deal of background.  Is anyone able to bring me up to date?

forum mods going power crazy again?
like with the release of squeel world trading

seems like the most viable option

I've found the thread now and I'm still none the wiser. :(

Your theory is a strong possibility.  I do fret on people getting in trouble on my behalf though.

I think they should force new mods to watch "das experiment" completely before they are allowed to get any power

bunch of idiots...
Ooh I remember doing Zimbardo in psychology. Very interesting.

Das Experiment sounds good!

*googles Zimbardo*  Oh!  That was to Egg. <3
Wish I knew more about this. But at the same time I'll never understand how some people become/stay a mod. Plus, forum mods are just an odd breed all to themselves. =P

It might make more sense if we knew what was in the posts that had been removed.

It looks like a site full of adverts to botting and other cheats.  Why would we want to find out more about it?

It's stuff like this which ruins the game for everyone.

I am seriously late to this one, and I apologize deeply for that.  I was witness to the events that happened there.  The video doesn't show the whole truth in what Tufftypower was doing there.

The thread is gone now, and I do not have any screen shots to share, so I will try my best to reveal what I know with as much truth that I can remember.

One of my friends had posted questions regarding Merch's visit, and wanted to know if she could post the article on the RSOF.  I had responded that I could attempt to 'paraphrase' her article, but didn't feel it was my place to do so.  I also went on to tell him that the 'article' that Merch had been invited to Jagex for, was not an appropriate topic for the RSOF.

At that point, Slushypants came along talking in detail about a player that he had suspected for years was being abusive in RuneScape, in very inappropriate ways.  His posts were negative, detailed and clearly not appropriate.  For the most part, he was trolling and disputing Jagex's efforts to help protect the RS Community, and Tuffty was the Moderator that came along to deal with him.

The following posts hidden was his arguments with Tuffty, and I can say that they were rather nasty in nature.  Tuffty was kind to give him the chance to behave better before he smacked him with the Banhammer.

In no way did Merch do anything to encourage this player, he earned his ban, and Tuffty was doing the right thing.

Canting Away Rules

It is permissable to kick:

1, Anyone spamming repeatedly, by which I mean '@@@@@@@@@@' or 'plz plz plz plz' or any unacceptable repetition of someone's name. Anything which renders conversation impossible, because the eight lines are being filled with one person posting such things. Discretion should be used. Mid-quest, it's quite feasible that someone will post 'omg!', followed by a second line of 'omg!' before calming enough to flesh out the detail.

2, Anyone being racist, homophobic, sexist, attacking individuals solely on their creed, culture, religion, disabilities or special needs, combat and skills level, mode of playing (f2p or p2p) or economics.

3, Anyone asking for personal information.

Otherwise, I see no need to kick anyone. No kicking should happen without clear and understood warnings; no kickings should happen whilst I am in the room, as, if it's needful, then I'm quite capable of doing it myself.
