I think we've all noticed that there's been a rash of non-coolness going around the board lately. So I thought I would step in to remind everyone: Be Cool. This forum is meant to be a place that people enjoy coming to. Fortunately we haven't had THAT many horrible difficulties (by my calculation. Short of obvious spammers, we've banned less than a dozen members in a year in a half, despite how much we've grown). Hell, even the shipping debates have been pretty tame compared to a lot of fandoms. But there are still some things we can do better with, yes?

-Spammers. Wooster just addressed this in another topic, but I'll say it again: if you find a topic you believe to be spam, report it using the little exclamation mark at the bottom of the post. This alerts the post to the entire mod team, so it can be delt with quickly. Please do not respond to or provoke spammers.

-Assholes. If you believe a poster to be an asshole, please just report them. There are a lot of people on this forum with sharp and sarcastic senses of humor, and I urge you not to take things too seriously. But to those people who enjoy baiting and teasing others, I also urge you to tone it down. It's not as funny as you think it is, seriously. Please think of my PM box. :payne:

-Noobs. I know it's not easy sometimes to tell a noob from a spammer. Please don't try to make that determination on your own. It's one thing to point out to someone, "I think this is in the wrong section" or "I don't think this topic is appropriate" and to discourage rampant topic making, etc. But please don't try to "dicipline" noob behavior through flaming and teasing. We've had young kids join this forum, and while none of us want to read through "Phoenix Wright Anime: Thread #242142151262" bitching the little guys out doesn't really make anyone feel better in the end.

I know sometimes we're pretty lenient on these kinds of behaviors, but I think most of the people who have complained about that have benefitted from getting a second chance at some point. It's not that the mods aren't paying attention or aren't taking your report seriously. I'm on the forum several times a day, and I try to respond to everything brought to my attention. But just because someone doesn't get banned right away for some comment or behavior doesn't mean it's not adding up.

And this may seem like a random addition, but I might as well say it now: Do not dare me to ban you. If the words "Go ahead and ban me" appear on my screen, my next three clicks will be going towards removing you from this forum. Maybe it's just a peeve of mine, but I can't stand that! It's happened before and it'll happen again, I'm sure.

We all just want to have fun here. I WANT you to have fun here. So let's all Be Cool and do that, okay?

And speaking of being cool and having fun, Wooster and I are working on a Secret Event to take place for the America release of T&T come October. That's a long way away, but if our ideas pan out it should be a lot of fun that everyone can participate in, with prizes to be had! I hope you'll look forward to it.

Thank you all. <3

I just want to say this so people know (since some don't...)

A Newb and a n00b are different!

A Newb is a new person. (hence the new in newb)

A n00b is an annoying person. (usually with bad grammar and such, but not always...)

A spammer just spams for the heck of it.


I hope this clears things up. ^__^

I think most variations of "n00b" are a bit derogatory... We were all new at some point, and there's no reason to get xenophobic when someone else comes along and decides to join.

...That's just something I can't stand. >_<

Anyway, Croik, I appreciate the message. I thought CR could use a little toning down on "t3h drama."

There's no need for threads like tinyosi, thelawerman, Post in this topic. I know it's incredibly tough to ignore n00bs/trolls/assholes, but for the good of the forum, we gotta try!

Hmm... I like 'Be Cool'. I might use it as my new slogan soon....

Why doesn't CR have a board specifically for spamming/flaming?

We had something like that, but Kenji locked it.

Because it was nothing but spam.

EDIT- Why would you want to flame people, anyway?

The word Newb is used for putting people down. .__. I'm sorry if that's what it sounded like.

I believe flaming is for pyromatics, thank you.

Thanks for the message Croik. I thought CR lost all of the heart it once had until that.

Jibo will now behave... *bows*

Allow me to expand on that.

Newb = A new member who respects longer-standing board members, behaves in an appropriate manner, abides by the rules, and is willing to learn from their mistakes to act in a mature manner. Many of them aim to please and be constructive.

Noob = A new member who does not respect longer-standing board members, behaves in an inappropriate manner - trolling, spamming, flaming, baiting, etc. -, does not abide by the rules, and is not willing to learn from their mistakes. Many of them aim to harass, degrade, and just act like flat-out uppity assclowns with no regard to the wellfare of anyone save their own.

Spammer = A member whose sole purpose is to post repeatedly or create multiple topics about nothing in particular. These types of members do not act in a constructive manner and have almost to substance to their posts.

Hope this helps.

According to what Macbeth has written, I fall into the category of 'newb'. Or at least, I was a newb when I was...new. Heh.

Yup, anybody who wants to flame can go to gamefaqs, because there's plenty of that going on over there, and always will be. :redd:

Just something I'd like to add: I'm not just saying this, but I've always found court records to be the most friendly forum with the most friendly group of people I've ever been on. Let's hope it stays that way, guys.

Here's a new one that seems important to add:

If a member sends you a PM that is blatant trolling/spammig/or just really offensive, please keep it in your inbox so that when you report the person, I can just sign into your account and see it for myself. I need proof to punish someone for their lameness. :shoe:

All the admins have the ability to reset your password, change your user name, or any of the other information in your profile. It's how we get in to remove offensive or rule breaking sigs, etc.

Of course, I would never condone an admin altering anything in your profile without you having asked for it. I would only ever sign into someone else's account if the person asked me to do it, to verify some kind of misconduct. I haven't had to do so as of yet, because people have been very cooperative. But if I'm going to ban someone because of a PM they sent you, unless the person admits to it, I want to be able to see the message itself, not a cut & paste or a screenshot.

It is, however, the entire source of social connection for about 95% of the people on this forum.

Also the thing about getting into your accounts--do you really think we care enough to pretend to be you or something? It's bad enough I have to take time out of my life to delete your stupid signatures because you can't follow rules; I don't want to 'be you' any longer than I have to.

Although I did once accidentally change someone's name cause I clicked the wrong button. Hilarity ensued.

Sounds like I joined at the right time then.

I must admit if I get any offensive PMs I just delete them. Always have. Life's too short.
