I'm new to this forum. ;)

Why do I get the feeling that you're rather familiar...?

Because I used to be on the Simple Machines community forum before I deleted my account.
Yeah, the Simple Machines team gave me a hard time, so I just... kinda left their community.

You might want to watch yourself then, because I'm actually a team member over there, the customisation team leader at that.

Okay, I guess.

Lets just say that over there, you lasted a lot longer because it's actually not down to a single person if a member is banned, which I have reason to think that you were.

Many over there are a lot more forgiving than I am, when you factor in that bans are actually decided by me alone.

Besides, this forum only exists now for integration sake and not much else.

By the way, I have an unofficial support forum, not affiliated with SMF, but I guess you won't be interested in the link. There isn't an "SMF Site Showcase" board on this forum, so...

Given that this is not a forum about supporting SMF, and is in fact about the Bongo Comics Group, of course there wouldn't be a showcase.

That'd be rather obvious.

Since it feels like I hijacked this topic, I may as well lock it without the help of an administrator.

This topic was locked because it felt like they were hijacking it a little.

I can bypass locks, so that's redundant.

Besides, straying into a different area of discussion in a topic when it happens is not a bad thing.

I'm also more relaxed than most.

You know, if I was allowed to, I'd show you the link to my profile and it have the link to my unofficial forum there...but, it still counts as giving links, and you probably already know what my profile number is, so... :P

Edit: Wait, I think I see your IP address.
Title: Re: Hey Bongo Fan Forum.
Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 01:52:41 AM
I had a quick look over there, and it's bleh.

Unofficial support forums don't do very well for reasons that should be rather obvious.



As for showing links to profiles and knowing ID numbers, I know my way around SMF and the theme I developed that this forum is using. Your website link is displayed next to your posts.

Well, at least it's a community. Besides, you could be a team member there if I allowed you to it :)

Edit: By the way, I'm "roleplaying" as someone from this movie called Suicide Squad.

I think I'll stick to what I have at the official community which is more then what you can ever achieve with the unofficial one.

Wow... I guess I'm the animal and you're the hunter, eh? (metaphorically)
I pleaded for mercy, and you shot me.

Well, lets just go with the fact that you're not really able to compete with the fact that I'm the Leader of the SMF Customisation team and have been for a total of five years, and have been on the team as whole for 11 years. Combined with being a member of the company board of directors for five years.

So I've been around a long time, and seen practically every unofficial support forum fail. Many don't see the need for unofficial support forums when the official one is superior for reasons that generally, that's where the people who know what they're talking about are going to be, and that isn't exclusive to SMF either.

Illori's had a successful unofficial support forum.
You're just hating mine because you don't want it to be popular enough.

Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 02:09:35 AM
Her's hasn't had a post on it in months nor would I consider ~750 posts total all that successful especially since it's been around since 2012.

Maybe you could invite others. Just a suggestion.

I may as well have been unharmed by the official community's team if they hadn't been such mean people to me. You weren't involved, so I'd say we're reasonably friends.
Title: Re: Hey Bongo Fan Forum.
Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 02:17:49 AM
I have no involvement or interest in Illori's unofficial forum. The only interaction she and I have is exclusively on the official one.

Given what you posted on there, I'd say their actions were justified. There were discussions in the team boards on what to do about your behaviour.

They could have given me a break from being so upset. But they didn't, and it only managed to make my anger worse.

Why should we have given you a break? We're doing our jobs in moderating the forums, and ensuring a safe, spam-free experiences for everybody, which will mean that bans or warnings are necessary.

You posted a rather consistent amount of worthless posts, that it annoyed many.

Worthless posts---! When are they gonna learn that I didn't post uselessly, and they just thought so and falsely warned me?
Title: Re: Hey Bongo Fan Forum.
Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 02:41:25 AM
While what you were posting was tame in comparison to some I've dealt with on MT2, it was rather worthless and the warnings were actually valid and weren't false. 

/me also participated in the team discussions I mentioned previously.

Remember we (the team) are the moderators, we decide what is best for our forum. You can disagree with the decisions all you want, it wont change much.

I'm just telling the truth.
Maybe you can convince them to let me return to Simple Machines Forum and become a better member there. Just a suggestion.

That's rather subjective. A lot of what you posted (and deleted) were random rants about post counts or services that SM has no control over and there was also a spurt of PM spam too.

No, I'm not going to be doing that.

Then how am I gonna return?
Title: Re: Hey Bongo Fan Forum.
Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 03:05:30 AM
That depends:

If you were banned: then you can't
If not: nothing is stopping you.

I don't know if I was banned. I remember that I deleted my account before they had the chance to ban me though.

Accounts of your nature given that you're not a spambot, don't get deleted anymore (with exceptions based on case by case), you'd have to get experimental and simply try logging in.

I was called a spambot a lot of times on vbgamer45's communities, but he's known very little that I'm a human.

I don't know much about that, so I can't say anything about it.

Welp, can you and the team at the official SMF forum discuss whether or not to let me return?
Title: Re: Hey Bongo Fan Forum.
Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 03:17:40 AM
No.

If you want in that badly, try to login, but if it reports back that you're banned, I'm not going to do anything about it.

It'll require me to recreate my account, won't it?
Title: Re: Hey Bongo Fan Forum.
Post by: Gary on September 16, 2017, 03:20:03 AM
No. Like I said, it was never deleted.

I've been thinking of reactivating it, but if I did, they'd probably ban me...
I can't make up my mind.

If you don't behave like you did before, you should be fine.

That's not exactly my decision to make. I'm not going to encourage either way.

I'm going to stick to neutrality.

Welp, I have rejoined the forum of supporting software.

I think I may have reactivated myself straight into heck.
