vanishing topics and posts

Post by kinwa » 13 Mar 2009, 01:35

i wonder bout the method of the moderators here. seems, some posts and threads are just without any statement been deleted or hidden, even if there was no obvious reason for it. why's that?

A lot of posts have been deleted for a lot of reasons lately. Give a specific example and the person who deleted it will explain you why it was deleted.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

Are you talking about the post where lamb kept calling meway a brown noser? They told you those were deleted because those posts were insulting.

Yes indeed, the truth can be overwhelming and insulting. Sometimes the truth hurts.

If you talk offtopic in the developmental sections, your posts will be cleaned up to keep the development forums clean. I'm especially strict about the gfx section.

The case to which you're referring to:

First it started out as pixel art in gfx, then it became conceptual talk about the usage of the unfinished piece without any further pixel development in sight -> moved to general development and finally it became mudflinging without any purpose at all and nothing was achieved, so it was just simply swept under the carpet.

If you constantly get moderated on the development sections: consider staying out of them.
This message used to be meaningful.

i understand you until this point. if i were a moderator, i would move the topic to the section player talk or off topic. for me, the topic made sense until its last post. sure, not for development, but for community.

That's why you are not a moderator. Cyber bullying should not be tolerated on forums.themanaworld.org.

You make yourself and the whole TMW community look bad in the eyes of bystanders.
