Welcome back, Derpcrawler Derpcrawler . You are now my new child in order to replace brap. This is non-negotiable.
Who is Brap? From what I gather from this thread, he was banned for shitposting? I rarely did shitpost on Gaf, although on old forum engine I had custom tag from one of my few shitpost. I wasn't even tag fishing, which was a huge thing back then, since not many people had custom tags.

New engine/skin looks nice though, I think old one was vBulletin, this one looks like xenForo or something modern like that.

So it was him. He once banned me for a month or two for a post in Dark Souls thread, for "redtards" which was a common name for invading PvP tryhards in the community. When I reached him on twitter, he admitted he thought I called someone a "retard", but didn't lift the ban anyway, saying some bullshit about using "ableist rhetoric".

Edit: I found the exact post!

Well you in particular don't want anyone around who doesn't look/culture exactly like you, so you're not all that great. Unless I'm wrong?
Really hope he received a warning as well for this.

All I did was tell the truth about ridiculous slander/disingenuous posting.

I would really hate to think that ‘bad words’ hold more weight than bad intentions.

Checking that, it looks like he did, so... what’s the problem guys? Your own moderator on the action admits that V Vicetrailia ’s comment was out of line.

I agree. I don’t have powers to make shit comments go away, though, just the ability to confront them.

You say to attack the argument, not the poster. Well... is there an argument here?

Well you in particular don't want anyone around who doesn't look/culture exactly like you, so you're not all that great. Unless I'm wrong?
Or a historically rotten poster, derailing a thread with slander?

What am I supposed to attack but character, when someone is displaying nothing but bad character?

V Vicetrailia should've just linked to what he was referring to, because I know what it is and if he had it would at least make sense why he said that and might've avoided a derail.

As is, he was obviously gonna be called out on it and continued to be called out until he backed up what he said.

I dont think -Arcadia- -Arcadia- deserved a warning for that interaction since the poster she was replying to basically refused to provide context to his post when confronted.

This. If he had reason to accuse JordanN JordanN of that, my entire tone would have changed. Which is why I asked for examples.

When he failed to provide them, and started smarting off, he, and my general sense of him, came across as the kind of person to smear somebody on false pretenses, rather than address what they’re saying.

Which is a really common, irritating trend on the internet these days, and one that I have no patience for. I won’t stand by and watch a poster get dragged through the mud by another like a one-man Resetera act. Here or anywhere.

-Arcadia- -Arcadia- : The mod who warned you didn’t intend to issue you a three point, and has since adjusted it to expire in a week. He was mainly looking to deescalate the situation and keep things civil. I don’t think attacking JordanN was called for either, I’m with you there, but the thread turned messy with all the resultant interpersonal conflict.

We won’t hold it against you, at any rate.

Thank you. I again appreciate that I can even ask questions about mod issues like this. That is really cool, when every other forum on the internet is basically North Korea.

So why? Because of one thread that apparently was "digusting" you take away my thread making abilities?
People make pos next gen threads and ssd threads every god damn day and that's okay, but one chubby appreciation thread, oh no that's off limits, that's "disgusting".
Am I criminal or something? I don't provoke other members, don't make troll threads and I do my best not to shitpost that much.
You could've warned me about the chubby threads. You could've said, hey you Croatian cunt, don't make those anymore, and I'd listen. I did listen about poop threads, didn't I?
Why go straight to cutting off my thread making abilities? Jesus Christ, I ain't unreasonable.
Not being able to make threads is like watching porn but you're not allowed to touch yourself. Then what's the point of even watching that?
It's your damn forum, but Jesus, you're being unreasonable with these draconian measures. I may be an idiot but god damn I ain't unreasonable. I am willing to listen.

I feel like as this is the second time this has happened to you, you should have gotten the point by now.

I've had one or two threads locked before and they were harmless itself but I guess they were too low brow? Maybe it was too specific or they thought it was more of an ironic thread?

Was your chubby thread similar to the big butts thread?

As in it's just a thread of people posting pictures of chubby women?

I think CameFromNearFuture CameFromNearFuture 's ban was not warranted THIS time. The guy didn't do anything worse than Tommy Fisher (who got a pass or a slap in the wrist every single fucking time he would post another one of his 'facts'). Especially considering the fact that the post he was banned for was quite possibly a joke, mimicking Sony's own words.

I think it's unfair, and I don't even like the guy.
I really appreciate your kindness and support.

IIRC he posted a photo of a naked woman with her tits and vag barely covered. And she was in the extreme upper limits of what I’d call “chubby”. It was a photo I could have done without seeing.

So glorifying morbidly obese women and having the picture reaching almost complete nudity.

Better lock this the fuck down as well then right, no it's OK because they are not fat. I'm willing to bet you'd not even looked at that topic.

Same thing as glorifying anorexics. People on either end of the weight spectrum have alot of health issues and shouldn't be encouraged to be that way. Just because being that way can cause them to die young.

Nothing wrong with a little bit either way but there are limits to what the human body can handle.

@Mod of War can you un-ban my first Gaf account. It was back in 2009, and I was banned after only 12 posts.
Here is the post that got me banned.


"The texutre work in KZ was pretty ordinary, but it wasnt the textures that made it look good. Just like in Uncharted it was the textures and animations that made it look good. We can just keep it on the PS3 for risk of making it look like a console war. Uncharteds spanks KZ2 in textures, while KZ2's lighting looks better. Both are good games, yet different art direction. Ask one person he says KZ's better, another says Uncharted looks better. Both are top of the chain games by quality developers. MW2 is also top of the food chain."


I think you would agree that it was an overzealous ban. While it was over 9 years ago, I feel justice should never be denied.
Also, which mod banned me for that?
Hey Rightisright. Yeah, that ban is BS, lifted it and merged your accounts for you, so you'll have merged post histories and your original join date back. Let me know if you want your original username back too. As for who banned you:

Literally the most offensive post I have ever read on Gaf.

Thanks to Bish for keeping us all safe.

Listen i understand that mods, and possibly Evilore, are getting a bit tired of the console warring in the gaming section, but to give me 4 points for posting a picture of Phil Spencer laughing in that Crytec 'dev' thread, well its a little unfair to say the least. I know you are trying to clamp down but at least give one warning first time lol.

I got the same thing. Looks like they knee jerked and went overboard.
Im willing to bet there was more green warnings than blue. Just a wild guess going off previous actions.

Yep ridiculous. They should of done a thread, outlying how they want to move forward, THEN issue warnings after. I mean saying 'i broke NeoGaf rules', since when is posting pictures, gifs, or memes against NeoGaf ruiles?.
Please guys, dont turn us back into old Gaf.

My post was me saying that the idea of high clocks and low CUs was better than mote CUs at a lower speed would indicate the Xbox One S was more likely to hit is peak easier than than the PS4. Hardly console waring.

No vag or nips were visible. But thanks, snake.

Haha, yeah I was pretty blown away that it got me banned. I was only on GAF for 12 posts so I have no idea what went wrong with the forum back then.
Sometimes people who have achieved nothing in life and are stink ordinary, find a place where they have some power, and so they use it. Some found their way onto a forum as a mod, and thats what you get.
What ever happened to that mod?
