talk about your all-time backfires...
what did I just miss?
I think he has done a good job he got us a training log and only modded shit that was getting stupid.
i'm just curious what people think of having a mod.
what has happened to trigger the creation of this thread?
I think we got the wrong mod
avatar = hillarity
arbitrary rule enforcement FOR THE FUCKING LOSE.
hey intheworks. lighten up your hand. we seriously don't need the kind of modding you're doing with this service provider bullshit. we have several dudes here who give us hookups on gear. if you don't like it, seriously, get the fuck out of our forum.
that may or may not have been what I was getting at
I'm meh about it.
I could really care less but I think it is over moderated. We needed a mod for stickies and thats about it.
Is he seriously mad I/others have openly said we could hook people up and then said the name of our business?
I could understand if some of the sponsors are direct competitors but facts are, they're not. And I'm just giving the homie hookup.
if this is not what this thread is about, I apologize for getting out of bed and seeing mini-drama and getting upset.
I see little other problem besides the occasional overzealous controlfreaking when our hotheads get to pissing at each other.
I don't even consider myself a big regular/contributor and I'm pretty sure the wrong mod was chosen.
Look at how F&N did it.
Timberwolf and PurEvl.
Two guys who know lifting, fitness, nutrition in & out, who we all like/value their opinion.
It should be the same in here.
I would've thought it would've gone to Chechen, personally.
He's the most rational, least affected by bullshit and shit talking, and most connected to the forums main comers while maintaining his more mature attitude.
I didn't even see the comedy option
Now it's 8...
except then hillary would have to wear a burqua to post
I doubt anyone is complaining about our little subforum. It would more than likely go unnoticed if InTheWorks didn't say shit too us.
ding ding ding
I SERIOUSLY doubt we are on his radar with our gear homies. This was clearly a case of arbitrary modding when NOBODY is affected but US. and we are affected by LOSING OUT ON OUR gear hookups.
honestly I'd like to hear from intheworks on this. why NOW did he decide that we can't have threads from our gear vendors? is there a competing advertiser on OT who they are taking money from? did the order come from on high?
He's a moderator, it's his job of enforce the forum rules.
If guys want to make threads explicitly advertising a service, they're going to have to pay to be service providers.
He hasn't given loco any shit at all, despite him pimping TU all the time. I think there's a lot to be learned from that, in terms of how to do it acceptably.
