The "Mean Team"





hack_man_
I noticed that some of the Mods have not got "Part of the Mean Team" in their sigs. Is there a regime here? I have noticed a few more bannings since those appeared.

Just curious.

As in political parties, you have severall oppinions. some use it, some don't. But you can't use it untill you get someone banned.

That's because you're distracted. there have always been banned people. they just weren't tagged before.

Be Well Cool

(btw.. the first part of this message was (obviously) a joke.)

There aren't more people getting banned than usually.
hack_man_
I suppose the same number of bans is still the same, but it seems to look a lot more public now. Like actual posts at the end of the offending topic that everyone can see, as opposed to a more subtle approach. I prefer this new tactic, name and shame!
Bockman
It's not name and shame...

It's simply to allow other members to know that that user is no longer with us (avoids unnecessary pm's and waiting for answers that won't come).

The other "feature", very helpfull for us admins/mods and very important to all other members, to reflect uppon before crossing the line:

"You cross, the line, we cut the line. Easy, painless and clean."

As long as it seems to get apparent that we don't mind banning people when they cross the line, I see that the mean team concept is having a good effect.
Reaper
This new style of showing who has been banned is quite nice, shows people that mods are not above banning people. Though what people seem to forget when they see mods banning people is that mods can be demoted/ banned just like everyone else here.
Assiez
I agree, the new public way of banning is much more effective and perhaps entertaining in some small way.

Definitely, the mods can be demoted/banned if they do commit blunders. However, the mod-appointing process we have here generally takes care of those issues. We've rarely had an instance where we've had to ban/demote a mod before.

Anyway, yes, the Mods (and Admins) don't mind getting people banned or banning them. We like to have our forums nice and clean. Smile

Unfortunately they don't allow me to be part of their "Mean Team". I'm apparantly way too soft. Imagine ...

Well, also, we're not mean to everyone... we're just "mean" to the rule-breakers and the spammers Wink

But our dear Boss is too soft... lets everyone off the hook, almost. If not for the mean team, no one would get banned.

PS : I may or may not be exagerrating slightly Wink

Feel free to complain Blaster....it was all meant in fun.

I tried to see that picture of that girl/woman, Blaster, but it showed me this instead:

Now, I'm beginning to wonder... where do your loyalties lie, Blaster? With Frihost or with Tripod? Wink

But I'll take your word for it. If you say she's hot, she must be. Razz
Blaster
tripod ftw!!!!

Here you go tidrug here she is whith some of her friends. Take your pick
Sunny
Blaster, It seems you know a LOT about her, I wonder why....

That's because she's Blaster's close friend.
And well, talking of friends,

Now, it doesn't take a genius to put 2 and 2 together.
Blaster, we know who you are now.

No the person giving me mouth to mouth is this hot person

Hmm.. so you get girl-on-girl mouth-to-mouth... that can happen if girl A's life is in serious danger, and girl B is the only girl who knows mouth-to-mouth...

Now, in my previous post, we've already established you're a girl... er... woman to be exact. Now, we also know that Pamela Anderson knows m-t-m (judging by Baywatch Razz)... so I'm guessing it's not totally impossible that she'd have given you mouth-to-mouth at some point of time.
Blaster
No i'm 100 % a guy the last time i checked. But i believe your a shim Razz And i was on an episiod of baywatch and got mouth to mouth by pam anderson. So haha

I'd love to believe you, but now you're beginning to sound delusional too... kids these days have too much chocolate... it messes with their brains... then they go out and buy airsoft guns and pretend to be hotshots Razz
Blaster
Well at least we know someone is reading my blog. Razz You know i'm way cooler then you will ever be tidruG. Face it everyting from my blog to just me is cooler then you.

I've decided that I'm now a part of the Extreme Team to compete with the Mean Team. Who's with me ? Wink

Extreme? I think I might fit into an 'extreme' category.... Shocked

How will your extreme team compete? Remember, you're competeing with mods banning people. I think a competition to see who could get the closest to getting banned without actually being banned would be a good start... Wink
izcool
I'm not exactly sure. Razz I just thought the name sounded cool enough to put in my signature. It sounds catchy though doesn't it ?

I smell a forum fad...
Vrythramax
I think your all a bit off. The "mean team" is for staff members who have banned users, and since I am not a member I'll simply lock the topic.

Thats mean team material! Twisted Evil
Bockman
I thought We should give you guys a heads up on one simple matter.

First, Ban criteria is not that strict for you guys to be sure you can "walk the line" without crossing it. If Bondings (nice team looks at it he may not even consider a ban, while gurdiT may have some questions wether to ban or not. On the same issue, I may look at it and have no doubts whatsoever and just hit the ban button. You may not have crossed the line for some, but others may feel different.

Second, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!! S3nd K3ys is a trained forum professional and has (to some extent) successfully used this technique in some cases. He is witty and mature enough to step on the line sometimes and get away with it. YOU may not be so lucky.
(btw, even professionals sometimes make mistakes. and we're watching...)
