I’m sorry what ? Playful banter in the proper thread isn’t bullying . You complain about bullying as you insinuate I’m in a closet ( bullying me so to speak) quit playing mod. Your in no position to say anything as you willingly engage in lots of the banter
You are most certainly a bully. You and frotho bully me all the time.

A joke my uncle sent me

Friends please put on a mask. It saves lives. Yesterday a friend of mine went out with his girlfriend and on the way passed by his wife and she did not recognize him. The mask really saved his life

So a little housekeeping this morning. Going forward please refrain from any posts relating to sexual orientation. This should be pretty obvious but based on some post yesterday I wanted to give everyone a reminder. The first offense after this post will be a 24 hour ban if the behavior continues it'll then be a 30 day ban and if after that it continues you will no longer be a member here.

Additionally as winter approaches moderation will tighten up in the main weather thread. Obviously we generally relax the rules during the slow months but we wanted to get this reminder out there before things pick up. New for 2021 will be weenie/troll tags. If you receive them you will be relegated to the whamby thread for 7 days but you will continue to wear the tag through the remainder of the season. If you have any questions regarding what is/is not allowed please feel free to PM me or reply here.

We have the whamby thread and ignore features for a reason so please use them appropriately.

Thank you.

Not a fan of this part.

Reminds me of how mods at American did things, and some did it just because they didn't like certain posters.

I second that , relegating a repeat offender to whamby is okish but tags ? That’s absurd . Doesn’t matter though , this forum will only be good as long as mods remain fair and posters aren’t too crazy . I mean it’s funny but it does just sound like something that could be abused .

Full transparency any banning/tagging decisions are voted on by staff as a whole and tags can only be applied by admins. Chances are maybe 1 or 2 people receive it all year and members will receive a PM warning before action is taken. It's not like we are just going to be scrolling through saying weenie post apply tag, troll post apply tag. It's mainly to mitigate repeat offenders, as long as everyone stays within reason there should be no issues. Let's not be dramatic guys

Honestly though I see no issues on the forum other than main threads cluttered by non weather discussion banterish posts . That’s really it. Everyone is guilty of that though , it’s honestly something that can’t be solved entirely and just something that kind of needs to be constantly warned of .

You are over thinking this and applying your expectations from other places here. We've done a good job through 3-4 years of not being like other boards. Nothing is going to really change other than a couple of people get relegated to posting in whamby when they weenie out or go full troll mode during winter.

That's exactly right. The only people who have a problem with any of this are the people who can't understand how to post normally. And there aren't more that a few.

What if majority of mods don’t like you!? Asking for a friend!🤔

I was thinking we could be more professional and rotate mods around like new ones and old ones. Like companies do. It helps prevent favoritism and issues
