An example of frustration with reporting[sometimes backstage discussion runs long]

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 12:56:31 GMT

Over in the Mod's view of reporting thread, Random Nerd said this as part of his post: ---Quote--- For instance, reporting posts multiple times a week for something that isn't against the rules. Being rude, for example. "Personal attacks" against fictional characters. Stuff like this. If it...

[Probable Layer 1 Error] Missing Delete Thread option

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 04:16:08 GMT

I attempted to delete a thread I had made within the hour, but I appear to be missing the option. I'm sure this is human error.

Contesting mod actions

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 13:41:23 GMT

If a mod does something as a mod that I disagree with, but it isn't a formal mod action like a ban or other infraction, what (if anything) is the correct way to challenge this? I've just seen something that I think is deeply unreasonable, but I don't know how to approach it. Thanks, nd

Suggestion re: Threadbans

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 08:32:02 GMT

Suggestion regarding Threadbans: Instead of automatically defaulting to permabanning members from certain threads, which might be reconsidered for long threads or semi-permanent threads, it might be better to temp ban them from the thread in some cases. For instance, temp bans for threads...

Status of discussing US Immigration Issues in other threads?

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 07:09:30 GMT

Just a brief question with regards to the discussion of US-based immigration issues - both undocumented and legal - now that the US Immigration Politics thread has been closed; given that DACA, Dreamers, TPS, the status of legal immigrants and the like are highly politically relevant (and indeed...

Cannibal Smiley avatar weirdness

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 19:13:40 GMT

I don't even know where to report this, for true. But just now I was catching up on TT threads, and saw this as Cannibal Smiley's avatar did its animation. Image: Image: Wat do?

New BB Code Tag for Users: OOC tag

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 22:21:20 GMT

It was brought to my attention somewhere on this board that an OOC tag, for speaking OOC within a PBP thread, might be handy. So, I went and created one - well, hacked it together out of Ru's code, basically. Mengtzu was also a big help in getting me around some common CSS design mistakes, like...

Closing of the "Discussing RPGnet" thread

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 05:00:48 GMT

Having been a member of for a shocking decade and a half, I was pleased to see a thread asking for feedback. And then I see it end in: "Thread closed. Do not expect any threads like this for a long, long time. And don’t expect to see us leaving threads open in Trouble Tickets – this has...

A suggestion for mods acting as regular users

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 22:13:36 GMT

I was going to wait for the whiteboard thread on this topic, but judging from the redtext, I don't think that's going to happen. So, I'm posting this before I forget. The problem: Some posters are feeling apprehensive about arguing with mods in normal threads, or at least keeping the mod status...

A question about the TT culture and communication thread

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 19:45:12 GMT

Am I threadbanned from this thread? A recent moderator post responded to something I said that they were reluctant to thread ban someone from the thread, then continued "but" without making it clear if this was a threadban for me or not. I've read it several times and am unsure if it was...


Sat, 17 Feb 2018 01:42:00 GMT

I'm a little concerned with the new 'positivity' push in OM. A user recently expressed dislike of a popular comicbook character, I prompted them to be more specific because the complaint was kind of nebulous, and the character is a popular one that I've seldom heard dislike expressed about;...

Completed Possible Thread Title Update Request

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 22:11:59 GMT

My five-year-old thread about the novel Altered Carbon ( just got necro'd, with a comment about an event that I don't remember happening in the book (though that might just be my terrible memory), leading me to think that the...

Suggested new rule: Don't name the killers in mass shootings.

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 21:14:46 GMT

Hi, I would like the mods to consider adding a rule prohibiting the naming of killers in mass shootings. I have some links below as to why this would be a good rule to have in general: ...
