I mean you get only one shot with it, there are no refills, and it's short range.

Account Suspension Notification

Spider,
Your member account at NerfHaven has been temporarily suspended. You obviously don't have a solid understanding of the key message in the Code of Conduct - "Think Before You Post."

I really tried to help you, but I can't keep up with your 15 posts per hour rate of fuckup. Please use the time this suspension affords you to read the forums and think about how you can contribute once you become active again.

Your account will not be functional until Sep 4 2032, 02:48 PM (depending on your timezone). This is an automated process and you do not need to do anything to expediate the unsuspension process.

That's a bullshit suspension. Suspend me next. The kid doesn't mean any harm, he's just asking a valid question about why an oversized gun is so heralded in our community when it has one shot, is cumbersome, and is not terribly practical if you're trying to reload it quickly.

Suspend me next. Ban me. Next time anyone asks a harmless question, ban them to. I hope this kid's suspension doesn't become the precedent for future suspensions.

Was this kid warned before his suspension?

That's not really how things work here. NH has always had a steep learning curve and is pretty elitest. He was also insulting people if you read his post history. Actually not only was he insulting people, he was just calling them names. Not only was he ignoring the COC, he was also doing so quite lamely.

Needless to say everything has been going super smooth around here. Not too much off topic, so if losing one guy means that we keep our relative peace, then so be it. It was a good call.

Did you give him a stern warning about his post count or a PM? Something that might make him think twice?

Oh and Spider, if you are reading this, you're welcome at NERF HQ anytime. We like people with enthusiasm.

Probably not, but since when did we become someones mother? If you want to wipe the nubs asses, by all means, go ahead. However, here at Nerf Haven, we like our members to keep there shit out of our site. If you don't like it, don't read or comment, you're just doing it to cause problems.

Well, I'm reposting because of my school's piece of shit firewall, here goes...

Anyway. I see two sides to this.

On the one hand, I can see why Cx banned Spider: insulting members in the first day of posting is pretty stupid. And, obviously Cx made relatively decent effort to help him out, because rarely does Cx state so openly that he made a real effort to help someone. However, while NH has a steep learning curve and is elitist, I'm not sure that a psuedo-permanent banning was the greatest call either. I mean seriously, one day? If everyone were banned in their first day for a mistake, bulletin boards wouldn't exist. Granted, it was a foolhardy mistake, but I think a week suspension would have been more fitting.

Just my two cents. Please don't take it personal or "flamingly" if that's a word, but I wanted to put that out there.

Dearest Evil,

I warned him really nicely here to take a break from posting for a couple of days and read the CoC and newb sticky. That was 5 posts into his 15 posts per hour first day on the site. I run The Haven as a refuge from that shit - if you don't like my policies, go hang out on your site.

If you ask me again for a suspension don't think I'll hesitate for even a second.

Love,

C

I'll stay here at NH and NHQ, thanks.

I'm not here to "cause a problem", I'm here to note the fact that the kid did nothing hurtful with this post and I don't see why he was banned because of this one in particular. The question is legitimate and it seems as though this was an excuse rather than a reason.

There was no excuse stated or implied.

I attached the suspension notification to this thread because it happened to be the most recent thread he started after I told him to cool his jets 10 posts ago. Surely you can see now that it has nothing to do with this thread in particular and you can take your ACLU ass elsewhere to fight for the imagined rights of the NH newb?

And don't compare me to the ACLU, I listed them as a hate-group in my last mid-term. ^_^

No joke.

Interpretation, for those who aspire to imitate Spider...

cxwq OWNS the site. He pays the bills to keep the site running.

What he says, goes. If he says we all have to have pink bunnies as avatars to use the site, that's what we do. But he's not asking for much more beyond this. Is that too much to ask of the users?

If it's too difficult, NHQ is the place to be. Or even Nerf Evolved, though I'm not even a member there. There are no fences holding any of us in here. We're free to leave if we're not satisfied.

To those who thought it unfair to suspend the account of idiots without due process...

Code of Conduct

Your Posting Privileges

If you break any of the above rules, the NerfHaven staff can, and very likely will, delete your account with little or no warning.



Settled.


I don't know what's so hard about trying to keep an orderly forum by everyone following some simple rules. Hasn't been a problem for me these last 2 years or so.

Perhaps everyone, at log on, should have to read the COC one more time before gaining access to the forums?

I understand its Newb HQ, but we don't need hyperactive 9 year-olds.

Anyways, it's Cxwq's site. This is no demorcracy, this is no place of this word you call "fairness." It's tyranny, and that's the way its gonna stay.

Long live King Cxwq the 23rd!

You know Piney, after every post of yours that I read, I gain more respect for you. I don't think you've ever failed to show reason in situations like this. This reminds me of why I thought you were such desirable mod material during my tenure at NHQ.

In regards to Spider, he was warned. I even sent him a PM to cool it. I guess he didn't want to listen. It's an unfortunate case considering his intial enthusiasm. I wish nothing but the best for him at NHQ, where he will remain until 2032.

Everyone hug. There we go. We can all relax and shoot someone with a foam dart. It may or may not cheer you up. I'm not going to repeat anything that was already said because I'm not some fucking yes-man, but I couldn't resist.

Nooooooo! For all that is holy, don't sell out the HQ!
I understand its Newb HQ, but we don't need hyperactive 9 year-olds.

1. He can join the HQ if he wants.
2. We dont need people who make 2 accounts, twice, because you didnt want such a high post count. Because you post whored. Because yor a whore. Twice.

It seems Spider's mom didn't care for my abusive language.

Spider/Kris,

I'll assume you're referring to the word "fuckup".

I can certainly think of other, more generally acceptable, words to
describe your experience on my forums but thought you might appreciate
me speaking in your vernacular.

You used the word "fucking" as an adjective in this post:

"I had a BBB as a 7 year old. It was so fucking fun, me and my uncle
would shoot targets with it outside."

I thought it would be equally acceptable to you in noun form, but I
appear to have been mistaken. Would you have preferred I integrate
some of the other words (like "shit" and "idiot") or phrases (like
"DAMMIT TO BLOOD SPEWING GUT LADEN HELL!!!") that you managed to use
in your one-hour tenure on NerfHaven?

Cheers,
Cxwq
