I know you’re not online on the weekends, but I just wanted to say something. Some people and I have noticed you seem to be... a bit biased towards certain users? I’m not going to drop names out of respect and because I can’t exactly pin down who, but you seem to be biased towards a lot of the younger/newer forumers, and it feels like us older forumers aren’t being given a lot of slack. It’s mildly annoying to see a new forumer not even get a punishment for breaking a rule when us older forumers would get long bans for doing something small (ie: referring to an outside website once or twice).

 

I don’t want to tell you how to do your job, because I don’t know how to and it’d be disrespectful because I’m a kid and you’re an adult. However, I have talked to some other people about this issue and they very much agree with me on it; you’re being a bit biased and it’s slightly irksome. I don’t mean to be blunt, either— ineivatably, this is going to come off as blunt or otherwise impolite, and people will likely say that you’re not being biased. I can understand the reasons why people wouldn’t think you’re being biased. I’m just offering some constructive criticism/feedback based off what other people like me (aka older forumers) have said, that’s all.

 

Since I want this criticism to be constructive, I think a good way to judge when it’s good to favor a certain user or not is looking at the context of the situation. Say Person A and Person B get into an argument, and you like Person A. Person A is lashing out at people and, as a direct result, Person B tried to calm them down but got mad at Person A. You shouldn’t just pin the blame on Person B and say they were attacking Person A; Person A is at fault, too, and they should receive a talking-to as well. Both of them should get a warning, not just one of them. Telling them how they could improve and giving some suggestions (ie: taking a break from the forums) is also advised. After that, see if they respond to what you said; if they respond positively, good, the argument is probably defused. But if they respond negatively and continue to be mad/lash out, I think giving them at least a 24 hour ban is a good idea. But since this is all constructive criticism, and I’m definitely younger than you, you don’t have to take this to heart.

*Raises hand* the newer forumers are, well, new (*face palms*), so they aren’t as wise about this forum per say? As in, not as well-versed in the rules or what should or shouldn’t be brought up on the forums. So, I think if we could help them, come alongside them as mentors because we’ve been on here a bit longer, instead of..er, reacting negatively? (I’M NOT SAYING PEOPLE ARE DOING THAT, I just meant to avoid doing that), it could really help?

 

Because some of them might’ve broken a rule by accident, and they didn’t know because nobody ever told/helped them?

 

if that makes any sense?

 

just, the older forumers coming alongside the newer/younger ones to help and guide them, instead of automatically assuming that the newer/younger forumers know how to act on here? (Again, not saying they do, just to avoid doing that).

 

does that make any sense? I just wanted to help out and offer some advice, that’s all...

@Angel there are some forumers that have been repeatedly breaking rules that you see on the top every time you make a new post. Some continue to break the same rule even after being given a warning by other forumers and mods.

Yeah, Angel, that makes sense. But some of the newer forumers have repeatedly broken rules and then ignored Becky B. warning them because bans are seldom given out. If they were given more bans, they’d be able to understand “hey, maybe we shouldn’t break this rule”. Nonetheless your criticism to my criticism is appreciated.

@Alphawolf and @Stormbringer:

 

What I mean is — before the newer forumers, aka your forum generation, rolled around, us (the older forumers) would get harsher punishments for breaking the same rules newer forumers often get little to no punishment for. Example- typically, forumers just get their post removed when they state their username or someone else’s from an outside website; older forumers would get bans, sometimes lasting a week long. This, in a way, still happens; some other people and I feel as if Becky B. favors a lot of the newer forumers over the older ones. That doesn’t mean the people she favors are inherently bad; it’s just bothering some people and being biased isn’t a good way to help run a website.

I'd assume that older forumers are expected to know the rules, which could be why the punishment is more severe for them.

@Necro, no no, I completely agree! I was just stating that if we could also somehow help the newer forumers in a way as well (the ones that want/accept the help), and stuff.

the older and younger thing is a bit confusing. i'll try to give my 2 cents on it.

 

let's say i'm new. i accidentally ask for stars, or what we call "star farming." people calmly tell me that it's possible i'll get banned for it. i understand and stop doing it. that wouldn't exactly be cause for ban, because i was ignorant of the laws. however, if i continued, then a warning from the mods or a short ban might be in order. if i continued after, a 24 hour or longer ban, depending on how i acted, if i banned for minimal reason, ect. however, if people we're being rude about it, despite it being my first time, either the people being rude abut it or both sides (depending on how "I" acted) would be warned, banned, or would be acted on accordingly. cat angel is sort of an example of a disciplinable forumer.

 

now, let's say an oldie asked for stars/ star farmed. they clearly (unless oldie means over a week old) would know about star farming. if the issue is resolved quickly and calmly, it might not warrant further action. however, if they continued to act out, the short ban would be instituted much quicker, since they should already know the consequence. if acting out, both sides are more likely to be punished.

 

 

i'm not saying that the tightening on oldies is necessarily right, or that it's necessarily wrong, either. i will admit, not being able to reference outside games is very annoying (it's there to protect us, i understand that), but rules are rules. what i think, is that some matters should be looked at by mods, and some parts are somewhat debateable. obviously, if a new player has been warned, but they continue, they should get punished in similar matters as an oldie or other player would. i just wanted to try defending the mods and filter, but push certain things against it as well.

 

also, sorry i changed "forumers" to "players" mid post.

@Platinum: yes, but thing is— a lot of newer forumers have been reminded of those rules, yet constantly break them with virtually no punishment. we should all be held to the same standard when it comes to the rules.

@Stormbringer: This isn’t targeted at you or anyone specifically; I just said ‘the newer forumers’ because that’s the majority of who Becky B is favoring. Could she favor some older forumers? Possibly. But it does seem she’s more inclined to give the newer forumers more slack than the older ones.

@Platinum that shouldn’t be an excuse for continuing to coddle them. A few forumers continued to talk about shipping one another even after the rule was put in place and were reminded not to, some continued to display personal information after repeated warnings, and still others have done or said controversial things multiple times with little to no repercussions. 

I understand the need for a learning curve but there are more forumers taking advantage of Becky’s kindness than benefiting from it.

I understand and I agree with you guys, it's unfair. I'm just trying to think of reasons for why this could be happening. Maybe there are rules that she has to follow that prohibit her from being too harsh on newer people? Kind of farfetched, but possible.

if becky really is biased, shouldn't there be evidence of her banning older forumers for doing the same thing that newer forumers have done multiple times? becky is a fairly new mod, to my knowledge, and most of this post seems based on that older forumers have gotten harsher bans in the past, which is not really becky's fault.

 

ofc i'm not particularly qualified to talk about this but that's my take on it

@rubylav:

 

lemme give you a popular example. dynasty and lily got into a fight once. lily provoked dynasty, and iirc put “dynasty is my enemy” in her siggy and adamantly refused to take it out when prompted by dynasty and others. she only did so near the end of the argument. dynasty got mad, and received a six day ban. do i think dynasty is completely in the right here? no. but do i think it was fair to only punish dynasty and let lily off the hook? i don’t think that’s fair. becky b was around when this happened, too, i think. but if someone has a better memory than me and can say otherwise, please, speak up.

Guys, I can tell you that she is definitely a newer mod. I actually watched Sarah leave on her trip and watched Becky B step up right around the time I started reading into this place. She's only, like, a bit less than a year newer than me? Less than that?

 

What I'm saying is, she's new as well. And I will say, I think Platinum's onto something. If you guys have been here longer, then you should know the rules better. Heck, I still triple-read my posts and water them down because I'm paranoid about something I do being against the rules! But remember, she wasn't giving the punishments when a lot of you aged-forumers were new. I'm not saying I know what it's like to be Mod Becky (who I personally think is awesome) but I will say that I think she'd have a bit of trouble with her job if she was biased. You made very, very strong points, however, and worded it very well. It's clear that you're not trying to be mean. :)
