Not only do I think they delete whatever threads they feel like deleting and then make up reasons for the Deletion. But sometimes the deleting of the thread is VERY VERY VERY OBSURD. **There are no “Written” rules about posting here…NOR is there a specific line to cross that would make any questions/threads “undelete-able”.

Admins and mods…when you become: “Retards” with moody-decision making, it is a BAD THING.

Private message sent to me:@Reedbeta

Hi eb_NY,
Your forum post ‘Recruiting for team members…’ has been deleted because it does not comply with forum policies. We do not allow recruitment posts on DevMaster.
Thanks,
DevMaster Staff

I replied:
Thank you for the information.
However…I am unable to find this rule “WRITTEN” anywhere in the site.

…could you point me to that page plz.
OR is this an unwritten rule ?
(It is your site, run it as badly as you want.)

On a another approach:
DID I NOT post it in the section that states, “a place to chat about anything you feel like” ?
…well, I felt like chatting about “recruiting” and there is NOT a written rule that states “No Recruiting”…so how am I to know that I should not make recruiting posts ?..ESPECIALLY IN A SECTION CALLED “CHAT ABOUT ANYTHING YOU FEEL LIKE!!!”

once again….
It is your site, run it as badly as you want.
//================

This site should have been closed down in 2005…it is stagnant and it smells of idiot.

And your crossposting of your topic and your insults are actually helping this forum because…?

This will help to reach more people before they ban me….

This site is piss-poor on many levels.
no new tutorials, bad forum mods/unwritten rules, the deleting of posts from people who just want a little help(but their post is not “good” enough to be “liked and answered”

….this site has turned into shit and I would like to point it out to the admins.

@eb_NY

Then make a decent post based on facts, not containing random insults and personal opinions about the moderators.

This site is piss-poor on many levels.

If that were the case, don’t you think we (the regular visitors) would have gone away already?

no new tutorials

I don’t see you contributing anything.

bad forum mods

I tend to disagree

unwritten rules

If that is true this probably is an error. If you point that out in a friendly manner, I’m sure they will update the FAQ

the deleting of posts from people who just want a little help(but their post is not “good” enough to be “liked and answered”

Nonsense, read the discussions regarding this problem.

….this site has turned into shit and I would like to point it out to the admins.

Then e-mail them if you want to point that out to THEM.

All you are doing now is letting everybody see you’re just another frustrating idiot. I’m not saying that you are but that’s how you’re presenting yourself at the moment :)

Your points are horrid.
I did use FACTS.
I used to come here a little over a year ago, under another name.

You seem to be under the impression that this site is Amazing.
—- I will pray for you.

If you are going to comment anything else….please make it valid and worthwhile.

@other post …. I will ask for a FULL refund :)

So now you have stooped to my level and began using insults as well…does this make you a “frustrated idiot” just like me ?

Sorry to the forumers…about triple posts.

I just want to inform you now that I am leaving and I will not post any more replies.

Thanks for reading the thread.

Hehe, nice to see you have a sense of humour. Seriously though, you know that posting a rant like that is never going to have any effect. Obviously you feel that this site could be better and you want to have some input, but there are better ways of doing this. I don’t know if you would be willing to contribute directly to improving the site (maybe that’s more time and effort than you’re willing to spare), but offering criticism in a way that is civil is more likely to influence the people who can make those changes.

[/ends of sermon] :lol:

A while ago, due to recruitment requests clogging up the forum, we made it policy to delete them and provide a forum for non-commercial announcements. I’m sorry that this policy is poorly documented, but we have every reason and right to enforce it.

Having a thread deleted is not such a big deal that you have to scream and moan all over the forum. We too are more than aware that more content is needed. That comes from people donating their knowledge and time, not posting swear words.

@eb_NY

at oisyn:

Yes, if I include something like “1+1=2” in my post I also use facts. The point is that you have to make the right conclusions using those facts. I can’t really say you’re an idiot because 1+1=2, now can I? :)

Your facts:
- a closed thread
- a private message from one of the moderators
- the fact that that particular rule wasn’t written

Your conclusion:
- the admins are horrid and this forum smells of idiots

I’m sorry but I don’t see how these points relate to each other.

—- I will pray for you.

Are you a religious man?

So now you have stooped to my level and began using insults as well…does this make you a “frustrated idiot” just like me ?

Maybe you should read more carefully, as I never said you were a frustrating idiot. In fact, I even said that I was not saying that.

?

@.oisyn

The point is that you have to make the right conclusions using those facts.

Now, I’m not saying I agree with what he/she wrote, but I think its fair that people are allowed to come up with their own conclusions, even if you… we do not agree with them. And come on.. using “slight of hand” with your words does not keep you from insulting someone lol.

In essence, yes. In practice, no, there’s also such a thing as good discussion etiquette and trolling or flaming, and the topicstart is more of the latter category. Well in my opinion at least. You can disagree with the rules or a specific action a moderator took, but just saying we all stink doesn’t get you anywhere ;)

using “slight of hand” with your words does not keep you from insulting someone lol.

Then again anyone can take insults, no matter the words or the intent. My intent surely wasn’t to insult him, I was giving him advice on how to make decent complaints (and personally, I am offended if someone says “you’re an idiot”, but not if someone says “you’re behaving like an idiot because of [reason]”. Of course, it would be an error of judgement on my part if I expected that others react in the same manner, which is kind of what I did) :)

Hi eb_NY,

This was not an arbitrary decision by any means. All recruitment posts here are deleted and their posters are PM’d with the same message you received. You’re the only one who has reacted in such a way. (Hmm, what do you think that says about you…?)

I’m not going to ban you, as I don’t think you are a real troll, you just needed to get your anger out (though I’ll suggest to you that in future you limit yourself to ONE rant thread, and as .oisyn has mentioned, I’d suggest also a less childish presentation).
