I know that this has been going on for a while, but it's time to draw the line, as a couple recent posts have made me realize that my forgiving attitude was apparently a mistake.

If you cannot resist the urge to post personal attacks or bring off-site drama onto the board, you will be banned. I am also disabling all sockpuppet/duplicate accounts, and if I see that more are being created, they will be banned as I see them.

In general, if you can't post with even a modicum of decency, you will be given a warning and eventually banned. You are adults, so act like it. VJA has been devolving into a bit of a shitpile for a while now, and it's time to clean up the mess. If you absolutely must post something stupid, do it in Free Style. I'll also be moving threads/posts over there a little bit more as well.

Well TWG just got a whole lot less interesting. Also, I liked posting as Dr Girlfriend more than as Kraken but who am I to argue with draconian moderation policies? mellow.gif

I guarantee you that I am, even now, a hell of a lot more lenient than Remy would be.

I look forward to this, as it would nice for VJA to be like it was a couple years ago. This is a good wakeup call for everyone. There are forums elsewhere for the kind of posting some of the people here enjoy. (I'm not saying I didn't do some stupid posting myself, we're all guilty to an extent!)

Well as rmz said in the OP it's more of the personal attacks and bringing in stupidness from other forums (even just to comment on its stupidness here) that has brought this about than silly and/or off-topic posts/threads

..I don't see the harm in keeping puppet accounts around, though

yeah take it over to AIJ

they seem to welcome stupid posting

But in all seriousness I'm glad something is being done. Is the same going to apply for irc?

Just as a reminder for everyone, a banning from the forums has traditionally included a nuking and/or jailing of your VJA/PNN accounts.

Shitting up this thread is a really great way to prove the point rmz was making.

rmz said personal attacks and off-site drama were forbidden (which is fair enough). If you're extending that to "making any kind of joke, regardless of how inoffensive" then that's also fair enough since it's your site, but this may not be the forum for me anymore.

Seriously, did that Billy Joel reference I made offend you? I'm honestly sorry if so, I thought anyone who knew the original song (albeit not many people I guess) would just get a chuckle out of it. I wasn't aiming to piss anyone off and I apologise if I did, but like I said that's just how I am.

Well jokes offend people and stir up forum drama. Kind of like innocuous sockpuppet accounts and threads about anthropomorphised IIDX songs. They have no place on VJArmy IMO.

Because it's spam and wastes bandwidth, posts, and in some people's cases, their time.

Free Style isn't even worth clicking on anymore.

The point is that there are places where its less than appropriate to post whatever the hell you want, regardless of whether or not it has anything to do with the topic at hand. Posting random goofy stuff in a thread called "Decency" about how there needs to be a change in attitude and posting habits is less than decent. It says "Hi, I'm not taking this seriously at all. I don't give a crap that you want this place to be nicer. I'm part of the problem." The great majority of this forum its fine to post good natured jokes. The prevailing "I'm going to do whatever I want wherever I want" is more of a problem, as I see it...
