even though you didn't mean to be pushy, you are coming off as pushy by constantly asking. be patient and the next batch will be released soon and then you'll find out if you made it or not. asking them isn't going to get you an answer or win you any points. not to lash out or anything, just informing you.

Not saying anything one way or another, but posts definitely have nothing to do with it...And kicker knows there's an..."issue"...regaurding his post count anyways...

Haha, not sure if "fishy" is the best way to describe it. But I know his post-count has been the subject of more than a couple of discussions about post-whoring.

There should not be an "issue" about my post count, if there's any issue about anything it should be about the content of my posts. And you guys have problems if you think I post too much, because 40 posts per day now is nothing compared to 250-400 posts per day like it used to be.

And no scott, I shouldn't be made jack shit because I have a high post count, that's the last thing in the world that I should be made anything for. I'm also not saying that I should be a mod or anything, I don't care either way, the reason why I'm here is not to become a mod.

That's what I was referring to. That some members on the site have concerns that your count is so high because of a bunch "less-than-helpful" posts. I personally don't know either way. I don't think we tend to frequent the same forums very often. The only time I can remember you having posted often where I hang out, was back in the day when things were still purehonda.com. I THINK, if my memory serves me right, that you and I both spent a lot of time in the audio section. But since coming to AF, I don't think I've had more than 25 posts in the audio section. So yea, those are the only times I remember seeing many posts by you and once again, if memory serves me right, a lot of your posts were quite helpful:) I guess things have changed since then, I dunno. Just telling him that post count has nothing to do with becoming a moderator.

They're right, that's exactly how my post count got so high, thousands of meaningless posts. My post count has been this high forever and hasn't been growing much lately since PH left AF. Ya know why it hasn't been growing much? Because most of those "less-than-helpful" posts left when PH did. I would whore it up with all of my old PH friends when they were here, now they're gone so I don't whore here anymore. If I want to make crappy posts I head over to IF where the rest of those guys are at. So if people have a problem with my post count being so high because I made a ton of meaningless posts a long time then they have problems. I can guarantee that almost all of my posts are on topic with the threads and are a lot more than just a one post smilie. My posts may be rude, crude, and socially unnacceptable but they're not whoring.

Self
01-30-2003, 07:09 PM
Hey, ya got me. I don't think I made more than 10 post in the Honda offtopic section the whole time I've been here. I don't really enjoy the whole offtopic thing. Just started going in the AF offtopic a few days ago. And yea, IF is an interesting place. That's where all the ph oldtimers hang out, I've realized. Ok, I guess we're done here, now...

Generalizing such as this does you no good. For me it is not personal. I have moderated other forums. I have always been as strict and fair to everyone, even CLOSE personal mates in R/L who used them.

No forum user is or should be above the law ( forum rules ). I tend to stay out of discussion such as this even though this has now went way off topic. What I see are two users causing more than enough undue issues and dramas for these boards. While these two seem it funny to make light of requests to tone it down they continue to push the envelope but as they step over that fine line their posting rights will go the way of the dodo.

Remember everyone here is human with real life issues and dramas. We all have personal lives outside the forums which directly influence or effect they way we may view a certain issue. It would be nice to see everyone get along but on a forums this size with the sheer volumne of users anyone can get it wrong.

What seperates a top forum user from the "other users" is we can also carry on with our duties as outlaid by the forum administrator, and moderators even though we may step on someone's toes. Forum users are less likely to become "targets" as suggested or hinted if they just play by the rules. Even if you feel you have been hard done by, it will always be towards your benifit in the long run to be nice. If your nice and someone is not nice then you have a legit reason to feel brassed off. Plea your case to a moderator and if you have an issues with a moderator then plea it to the Admin. If you still don't get any satisfaction then you have two avenues to go down.

1. Stay clear of that particular person. Don't give them a reason or excuse to even give you a second look.

2. Leave. Leave the forums and go somewhere else.

Getting defensive or offensive will only cause not only the moderator of that particular area to scrutinize any posts you make much closer and stricter, but also other moderators in different areas. You will become a legistical target. The louder you get the worse it will get. It can get to the point in which you may not get banned, at least right away but anything you post that can be even remotely viewed as out of line over the line, offensive, or uncontructive will be nuked. It never needs to come to that. Only the forum user will push it that far.

Remember we as moderators also have guide lines to follow. Getting all pissy at anyone of us for following those guide lines set fourth will not do the user(s) any good.

Peace
:)
