The contact form, that explains it then. Only the admins get that, us mods don’t get anything sent through the contact form. That would be why none of the mods came to help.

As for users on the forum, sad to say the population is declining, but still a fair amount. If we made a thread about unfair image removals and suspensions, I’m pretty sure the mods would keep a close eye on it.

Er, you did? I don’t recall getting any PMs or wall posts. Maybe I just overlooked it accidentally.

We have had a set of guidelines up for a while in the forums, my plan was to make a separate thread specifically explaining GG, so there’s no confusion

As I said, we’ve made major fuck ups, but we’re honestly trying. Ask us directly when this happens. We always give reasons with suspensions, which are emailed to users, so check that for our reasoning. If you want more detail, ask us directly, making comments here won’t help because chance are we won’t see it. And I gave as for a clear set of guidelines, we’re working on it, we should hopefully have a thread set up to clear any concerns.

And as a side note, I hate to say that you might be reading to much into the whole “your previous justifications sound like you’re offended this article exists” thing, because I am entirely fine with this entry existing. It’s a monumental event in gaming history, of course we have to document that.

Done and done, just be sure to use the thread before you make any major changes, and everything should be cool

Yeah, what can I say, we’re far from perfect. You make good points (and as one of the people who actually took part in the raid, I apologize profusely. My guilt over that is the reason I started to talk to Doh more, and get more tolerant). Other than that, all I can say is I’m sorry for all the stupid shit we did, and we’ll try to improve communication from now on. And hey, if we don’t stick to this, you have my permission to insult us to your hearts content, because if we go back on this, we’ll deserve it.

Pretty much what I’m trying to say is, we screwed up big time in how we handled things until now, and for that I apologize. All I ask is that you trust us and be friendlier with us, tell us if you’re confused about why an image was taken down, coming here and making things more hostile than they need to be doesn’t benefit anyone. I hope you understand now, just ask if you want clarification on anything, or you need help with something, I’m sure we’ll be happy to help, as long as you give us some respect.

Another thing we handled kinda poorly was the image gallery system. Basically, what we’re looking for is images of direct relevance. Not kinda relevant, or on something similar. We are a documentation site at heart, we want images that show a fair and balanced representation of the events. We aren’t an image storing site. I know some of you guys don’t like that, but well, them’s the rules, if you use our site you’re agreeing to follow them. The way our banning system works is you get a warning when you make an offence. 3 warnings, you get a suspension, get 3 of those and you’re banned. If you find an image has been removed, check your emails, you’ve likely got a warning over it. If not, come and ask us. Make a thread in the forum, I’m sure between us we can come up with an answer. And hey, we might even agree that you were treated unfairly. Coming in the comment section and just saying “my image was taken down” and then calling us shills doesn’t help anyone’s situation.

And also the idea that we’re focusing our effort entirely against Pro-GG is wrong. I know a lot of us mods are forums and IRC goers, but we decided recently that we need to stop them coming here and being so hostile with you guys. We can’t really blame you for getting angry when the flamebait is right there. We want the site to be friendly for everyone, not just for The forum goers.

Well this is awkward, guess I better explain myself a little. You see, I know you guys don’t really trust us mods much, with the bannings and warnings and all that, but truth be told, recently, we’ve actually trying to just cure hostilities between us, the comments and the forums. Sure, the way we’ve handled it thus far has been pretty bad, I won’t lie, but it’s the truth. Let me try and explain.

Firstly about the earlier lock. I know it seemed a bit sudden and harsh, but all we were trying to do was make sure you got the message. Comments have a tendency to be buried and forgotten about, the reason we had the temp lock was to make sure the comment stayed at the top of the pile, we weren’t going to make the lock permanent. Despite what you may think, we’re against completely banning GG from the site, that wouldn’t be fair.

I mean ask directly in a thread or something instead of complaining here. I don’t know what image it was, I can’t help

Huh? There’s a VGX this year? I thought all we were getting was the game awards the other day

Super Paper Mario is underrated as hell, but TTYD is a fucking masterpiece, my favorite game ever.

Not much of a cartoon guy, anime is really the only thing I watch. Even things like TV and Movies just aren’t my style. As for who Chrom married, I always paired him up with my male Robin, so in the end he had to go with generic maiden since I never paired him up with anyone. Robin/Chrom OTP anyway
