Animation Source news
News Regarding Drama

Written by SkulShurtugalTCG :


This is a message from the mods.

Recently,  there has been a lot of flaiming of members in the shout boxes, through comments, and on the forums. In particular, the members are Brown wolf, MightyBalto1925, Skulblaka_Shur'tugal, Kelsey the Zombie and JerseyCaptain. As of right now, anyone caught doing this again will be given an instant month-long ban. Consider it a rule for now.

To elaborate: don't talk about them even if you talk about the situation without mentioning names. It's obvious who you talk about. And we also don't care if you talk about it either civilized or politely. With Brown wolf, who was recently demodded, DO NOT talk about the situation in public, no matter what side you take. It is not necessary to talk about it, and it creates drama. As for flaming Skul, JC, Kelsey, or Mighty--no matter the reason--just flat-out don't try it. That includes those same people; if you see THEM starting anything, report it and the mods will decide how to handle it. 

This isn't to say you aren't allowed to talk about it. Just don't do it on the shoutboxes, in comments, or on the forums. Animation Source is a fansite dedicated to films, NOT bashing other members. You can easily talk with others about these situations through PMs, Skype, or MSN. ANYWHERE but in public on this website.

Once again, no exceptions, not even those listed. If anyone discusses the current situation about Brown wolf, or writes messages that could be interpreted as flaming JC, Mighty, Skul, or Kelsey, you will receive a one-month-long ban. And again, that INCLUDES those listed; if they are caught doing so, they will be banned. No exceptions, no second chances, so don't even bother.


This is a message from Skul, to help this news not end so dreary-like.

Live long and prosper.

OK guys thank you for help me, so sorry for saying that, and i think this is a great idea to keep that Drama out of the site and avoid VERY IMPORTANT MEMBERS to leave it, that's awful.

This post was wise. This situation was going out of control.

Moss, thanks for the answer. It doesn't seem like a very reliable system, it's sort of "well maybe a mod will do something about it and maybe they won't", but at least it's an answer. Again, I only ask because there is a history here of mods abusing their mod privileges and deleting reports about them. In the past there has been no accountability, and that has lead to severe breaches of site policy with zero repercussions. I'm trying to find out if that has been fixed or not. Your answer hasn't convinced me it has been, but then again it's a whole new mod crew now and it may not be an issue.

Also regarding the shout box, if "report and ignore" worked, you wouldn't have to post news articles telling people they're going to be banned. I'm just saying, certain people are being flamed for a reason, and it's not going to stop until the root cause of the issue is recognized and dealt with. Or until there are no members left because they've all been banned. One or the other. :P

Moss -- "If you have a problem with a mod, PM that mod and try to resolve the situation" had been put into practice by anyone who has a problem with a mod, this whole situation with flaming probably could have been avoided.

Xaqtly- Mods can be reported, and when that happens, usually whichever mod handles the report, it is their choice on how to deal with it. Hopefully they send a PM to the mod so they know what and why they were reported.
Also, what exactly is your /real/ question, because all of your questions seem rhetorical. Any flaming in the shoutbox isn't allowed, even if the other member provokes it, they should report and ignore. Simple.

The question I asked is this one: "From my experience if you report a mod's bad behavior to the mods, the complaint gets deleted and nothing happens. Has something significant changed?" I understand now that the bad mods seem to be de-modded and that's good, but the question still stands specifically because it was such a blatant abuse of power that none of the mods, including you, seemed to be interested in handling at the time. Has that changed? Can we actually report mods now without having those reports systematically deleted and ignored?

It doesn't mean I want to report any mods by the way, I'm asking solely because it has already been a very serious issue here, and it would be nice to see some confirmation that mods are actually taking their jobs seriously. Now, as to this part: "This news is specifically about those people because in recent weeks if not months, they have been the subject of much flaming and it had to stop."

Are those people being flamed for absolutely no reason? Or are they doing things to provoke it? I certainly hope you're putting more effort into finding the root cause of this particular problem than just telling people to stop flaming them, because given who those people are, it's doubtful that this flaming is just happening spontaneously and without cause. Right? Who's really at fault when it's always the same people being flamed?

Do your part to make the site better and it won't be necessary for anybody to flame or complain. Continue to ignore the source of the issues that people are having, and you will continue to have to threaten the users of this site like a king trying to intimidate his subjects into silence from his balcony. It's up to you.

I believe it HAS been answered. If those people aren't mods, there's no reason to worry about it. This news is specifically about those people because in recent weeks if not months, they have been the subject of much flaming and it had to stop.

I think, bringing it up with a mod, could work. It just needs to be put into practice.

ArcticGx- Nah, I didn't take it the wrong way, I'm not gonna flip out over it, but it does annoy me that people seem to just target each other for personal reasons, when we're supposed to be a community, but as you said, people definitely don't take a care sometimes about what they post to other users, and some people are pretty just down right hypocritical.

Unfortunately, I think the whole point of AS has been forgotten.
