GameSpot Moderations?

[QUOTE="julian_jr"] Yup, you never know when the mods may be watching.:o

Most times I think they just check on reported stuff, and only catch stuff on their own when they are lucky enough to stumble accrossed it

I doubt many people report in unions and such though.

Not as many as in OT trying to be Mods and reported every little thing

I'm not sure if they are trying to be good and act like mods or are just doing it to be mean.

Both probably, some probably think it's funny

Why would they think it funny to report someone? That's just wrong, and being a jerk.

There are a few threads in GS that you are not allowed to make or have, since they can be considered spam or innappropriate.

You can always read in boards like Off-Topic what the posting rules are in one of the stickies. That and in the union advertisement board they have the main union rules up.

Phh overachiever. JK :P

Na the only time I really have to post is during school, and I try to pay at least a little bit of attention to my teachers. I've been away from my computer the last couple weekends, but this upcoming one I should be free.

It's always best to read the rules before posting. You learn what to watch out for, and sometimes end up finding some interesting things.

In OT if you asked that they would answer "Welcome to OT, that is how we roll" :lol:

Why do you say that? Who doesn't like the OCC?
#179 Posted by double_decker (145821 posts) -
[QUOTE="julian_jr"] Why do you say that? Who doesn't like the OCC?

Some people don't, but I got rid of them a while back by putting their username in the announcement at the top saying they weren't welcome to to post there, so if they did then it'd be a GS ToU violation 8)

I remember some person was one time not allowed to post there, but right now I don't see anyone in that announcements page.

Didn't he get banned in like two weeks? I remember that he made Maul really mad and made him leave S7

[QUOTE="julian_jr"] Didn't he get banned in like two weeks? I remember that he made Maul really mad and made him leave S7

Yeah, he was a ban dodger and a dumb one too because he admitted it in OT RC and I think JustPlainLucas when he was still a Mod got him on it

Why would he admit that? That's the dumbest thing you can do if you are one.
#185 Posted by double_decker (145821 posts) -

It sure is, but I have known a few others who have admitted it too :lol:

Why would you ban-dodge and then admit it in one of the boards like OT?
#187 Posted by double_decker (145821 posts) -

Because they don't care probably, if they are going to ban dodge once they can just do it again

But what's the point in doing it to begin with? I don't get it since you just get banned and always have to start over. It's better to just use customer service and try to get unbanned instead.
#189 Posted by jediknight52501 (69715 posts) -
i am glad i am banned on a certain website, if i was un-banned, i would be worse then i was before.

I'd go through Customer Service, but there are a few that have gotten away with it, but mainly because they don't open their mouths about it

Which is why they usually don't overturn bans, there is usually a good reason for it :P

The mods have been quite hard on people this year. A lot of good users have been banned.

They are bound to get caught eventually if they post in the wrong board though.
