Newgrounds Moderation Sucks. Dec. 17th, 2009 @ 12:09 AM

Wtf is up with this commie site? If you have a negative opinion that's different then anyone elses and you make a thread about it it's deleted?? Why can't I say Kurt Kobain was a loser drug addict or Michael Jackson was a child rapist? It's because NG mods like eyelovepoozy and Malachy are biased and delete threads they don't like for no reason!!

We're totally fine with you voicing your opinion, be it a positive one or a negative one. But if you post it in such a way that it attracts flame bait, then the thread will be locked or deleted. A secret to a successful debate thread is not to completely insult the person's lifestyle you're arguing against, limit the amount of slang and curse words you use, and actually engage the other forum members on their opinions. If you simply say "this guy SUCKS," well there's nothing there for anyone else to relate with and discuss about. Such a post would do better on your blog.

Because then you made a thread without using the search bar.

Maybe you are.
As a regular user of Newgrounds, I can tell you I've been banned for just about nothing. And there's no way for me to contest a bullshit ban because mods have absolute power on this site, even though the users are what drive the site.

Because kids who've just realized that you can get a rise out of people by forming a negative opinion against something popular and taking it to the extreme deserve to get molested by hobos. And not the lovable tramp with a heart of gold and a pleasing cockney accent type hobo. I'm talking 'bout the filthy, two-toothed, pissing in his pants that haven't been changed in three years while he builds up resentment for a world that he can never fit into hobo.

And while we're fucking at it, I created a club to promote the use of Psychedelic drugs, and it was deleted by a mod within hours. While the stoners club remains up.
If that's not bias, I don't know what the fuck is. They're all illegal, so why is one forbidden just because some ignorant mod has a stick up his ass?

Yes, for once, I do. A moderator has banned me repeatedly before for little to no reason, so I complained to the staff.

He also loves deleting locking my threads, which are for genuine rule-bound reasons, but still, I'm sure he/she gets a kick out of it.

I do realize the problem of certain moderators handing out bans excessively, and the only real thing a user can do about it is report the problem to Wade in a polite manner via the PM system. If the mod signs his ban, you're always free to PM him and talk it out. Again, such a process MUST be done politely, as no one is going to want to deal with a user who is insulting. Also, the General forum has always been grounds for a higher percentage in being banned than the other sub forums the site offers, thus nearly everyone gets banned. Looking at my own ban list from earlier years, I was banned for a lot of "posting in spam topic" blah blah blah, and I came to accept that after a while.

You're probably mistaken in the mod's decision to delete it. While the world of drugs is indeed a deep one incorporating many different drug users, the NG forums isn't primarily a "drug forum" so to say. The mod probably felt that although the stoners club relates to only weed users, occasionally a user who uses different types of drugs would pop in and say "hey, has anyone done this? Let us discuss it." The mod just wanted to keep discussion on the matter of drugs in one location.

Though if you asked me why we have an anime club, as well as naruto and bleach clubs, I have no idea :S

You have to concede though that some bans have little to no real basis. In fact one of the times I was banned for an NSFW image, I was pretty pissed. In what community that preaches "Everything by Everyone" is only a select few given the 'privelige' to post whatever image they want.

I mean Stamper has an entire topic about posting unicorns with fucking cocks for horns. Not only that but he asks people to post with him. Why is Stamper or Tom or Johnny U allowed to post these images but not me. I didn't really think a site that would let me say Thundercuntfuckingcocklickingmotherrapin gshitfucker wouldn't let me post a pic of Luigi shitting on Toad, which I found morbidly hilarious.

I guess the mods disagree though.

Some of us are in different standings when it comes to certain material being posted. Some simply delete, some ban for it, others just let it slide. In terms of Stamper, he posted his work in the Art Forum, where nudity is allowed as long as it's an art form. Though that argument of where the boarderline between porn and artistic nudity exists is quite a complicated one so I won't really get into it.

I'm not saying that I dislike Stamper or Johnny U or Tom Fulp. I think they are great for this site. I'm just saying that other than Tom I don't feel anyone should be getting special treatment.

Please don't ban me again :(

I didn't see it the Art Forum. I've never even been in the Art Forum and I came upon the topic (pun intended). I might be wrong, it's just that I'm fairly certain I found it here on General.

I guess some mods really are assholes while others are a little bit more generous.

Again, please don't ban me :(

Well, it was actually a psychonaut club. A psychonaut is one who explores the human mind using psychedelic drugs. It wasn't about "Hey, lets do some acid and see some crazy shit!" it was about using Psychedelics responsibly and sparingly to gain new insight on situations, expand your perception of the world, and improve your life overall. It also had a ton of other details to it. But whatever. :)

It's fair to say that some of the admins can be hypocritical, in that they don't necessarily always follow the rules that are laid out. But the cold hearted truth is, they ARE the exceptions, and we must regard them as such. To be honest I have no real thought behind the matter, since I've always just seen people like Stamper or JU as users who, while offensive, are at least successful in being humorous. For those users who don't find their antics funny, they have the option of just not reading their posted material, and that's that.

I've already been banned maybe 4 times for reasons I wasn't completely sure of. Though the last time I was banned it was for that Mario picture, and i did that for a rise. It was funny to see the reason for ban read

I think we've had enough of Luigi expelling his bowels

Sometimes the Mods come off as dictators, but you and Stem dispel the idea that mods just do it because banning is fun. Which I'm sure it is.

Please don't ban me :(

I guess such a club could be legit. If you PM me the whole thread, I can look through it and give permission for the thread to stay open, and for any of the other C&C forum mods to contact me with their opinions before locking it again.
