well the admins have to go check your history and if they accept you your a mod, but there should be a written contract sent to you

Dec 17, 2009 at 06:54PM EST

desu? i know what that means, i also saw something on the troll pictures that had desu on it.

Dec 17, 2009 at 06:56PM EST

Written contract? That’s a little overkill.
If they do choose to make you a mod, unless it’s a huge site, it’s normally just a message/email sent to you asking if you will accept.

@Real Genius:
Desu, Cloverbeatme, etc…

@ real does this have a story or something?(getting off topic lol)

Dec 17, 2009 at 06:59PM EST

about this desu thing christmas mentioned a troller and people are whatever?is there a story?(im getting off topic)

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:01PM EST

Nothing huge. Just another troll. We get trolls from time to time.

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:02PM EST

ok,im going to be anti-troll
logging off for now!! bye

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:03PM EST

A user named desudesu4lyfedesu was trolling a little bit ago. He was banned, but we were suspicious that he might make an alternate account. That’s why I asked you the stormtrooper question.
But you’re not that guy.

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:04PM EST

Well desu kept embedding all those stormtrooper videos.
I just favorited them and said nothing.

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:05PM EST

But wait…

But that could just be a coincidence.

And if not, he seems to have learned his lesson.

Edit: wow, that picture sucks.

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:21PM EST

I had the exact same thought.
Jamie tells me he’s making alts right now as well.

Dec 17, 2009 at 07:30PM EST

I’m not surprised Jamie knows this.

Pictured below: Jamie Dubs

Wow, you guys are so untrusting. Remember, be kind and courteous to everyone you meet (hopefully, trolls will get bored of you once you act nicely to them and they’ll leave the site).

@ Santa

I know I’m a bit late for this but…

Like Griff said earlier on, if you have any questions, feel free to ask them to any of the admins and/or users on this site. We’ll be sure to come around and help you out with any trouble you’re having.

Dec 17, 2009 at 08:01PM EST

it’s just that the evidence is piling up against him, and there has been two new accounts opened RIGHT AFTER desu got b&, and the All Knowing Jamie even told that the three (two?) accounts have the same ip

Dec 17, 2009 at 08:05PM EST

@ Skankin

See what I mean? Untrusting. You guys rage too easily. Though, I’ve been told about the whole ordeal you guys had to go through earlier during the day so I kind of understand why you’re all tense and stuff. But still, it’s always best to be kind and courteous (this has always been my rule of thumb for everything if you haven’t figured it out by now) even to those who piss you off really badly. BUT, if an obvious troll is/becomes obvious, that’s the opportune time when you start barging in and flaming the bastard like the bunch of lunatics I know you guys really are!

For now though, this person seems legit and you should treat him/her with some respect.

Dec 17, 2009 at 08:20PM EST

My suspicion is renewed. I never noticed the Sephiroth image before.
Sorry, routine checks. If you aren’t this guy, we apologize.

Dec 17, 2009 at 08:21PM EST

Normally I’d agree, but this just seems really suspicious. We’re not raging, either, we’re just on edge due to recent events.
If he isn’t the guy, sorry, nothing personal, just routine procedure.

Dec 17, 2009 at 08:25PM EST

i think he was done trolling and decided to be nice. Chris can you check the IP to make sure?

Dec 17, 2009 at 10:39PM EST

Assume good faith! As people learn about a community’s social norms, they adapt to its customs.

I think the presence of “trolling” is often more a failure on our part to to make our community’s norms known & understandable, rather than a failure on someone else’s part to understand them..

Dec 17, 2009 at 10:54PM EST

Hmm? How so? If we wrongly accuse someone of trolling because we are not accustomed to their patterns of communication, we have failed. If they purposely make terrible contributions which negatively impact the community as a whole, they have failed, in which case the classification of “troll” is entirely justifiable.
I believe that if someone really wants to join our community, it would be a fairly simple and straightforward process. It’s not like we make it hard to fit in, nor are we hostile. We meet this new user with a fair amount of suspicion, but in my mind, it’s quite logical to do such a thing considering the circumstances.

Dec 18, 2009 at 11:21AM EST

Dec 18, 2009 at 04:22PM EST

Oh,and sorry bout the welcome of anger.
There was a troll that kept spamming,and made tons of accounts,and as soon as his last one as banned,you came.

Dec 18, 2009 at 04:23PM EST
