You... don't understand where the sub-defaults are coming from, do you? It's not the site admins. You have to annoy a lot of people for your posts to end up where yours are.

And, there is no "censorship" involved here. That word implies that you have a right to expression here in the first place. You don't.

Corny what exactly is your problem? The admins aren't trolling you - you are trolling the forum. Just about every post you have written has gone sub-default because of the CONTENT, not because anyone has a vendetta against you personally. I mean, no one here even really knows you. We know you from your posts, and your posts are completely under your own control.

My advice? Take a few steps back, a few days off from posting, and then come back when you have some positive things to contribute to the discussions. Now don't take that to mean you have to post positive THINGS about the game (lord knows I don't), just contribute in a positive way to the discussion. Your ratings will improve as your attitude does. That's the order, not the other way around. You can't just make demands and expect that people will respect you as a contributing member of the community.

And quit ******* about the admins, before Kaolian comes in here and yells at ALL of us lol. You obviously haven't come across his radar yet - keep it that way because he WILL ban first and not ask questions later.

If you can pull off writing multiple posts without insulting, insinuating or demonstrating a lack of understanding of what people have written, then you will find life on the Zam forums much less traumatic. However, this requires the ability to not constantly jump to the wrong conclusions. It doesn't work out very well when someone has to spell out how to connect the dots correctly one step at a time each time they need to make a point. Most people aren't going to hand-hold their thinking processes.

By the way, complaining about karma is a one-way trip to sub-default, not that you haven't already been told multiple times already.

Go get 'em, 'Boob! Don't let the, uh, man get you down with their steady flow of "propaganda!" It must just be some conspiracy against you, for certain, because I can't find a soul on these boards who would rate any of your posts down themselves. Indeed, the world is simply not ready for the brilliance you have to offer it: like that time you posted in the wrong thread, saying that FFXIV sucks, or... that other time you did the same thing...

Hmm, where was I going with this? Oh, yeah! Keep up the online fuming, 'Boob, because I like reading foppish drama support your great cause!

I have bigger things to worry about than the colour of my username or the rating on my posts. If you are getting this upset about ratings perhaps you shouldn't be on a message board. I am not here to butter people up, and if people have problems with what I say that's their own issue. Stop being offended by how people "rate" you.

If you were actually karma camped, an admin can fix that. Of course, if you weren't, and it was just the sum total of a lot of people rating you, then you're stuck.

People can just create a new username and start fresh, if they really care and want a second chance. Admins don't seem to mind that as long as you don't use one account as a sock or rate-bot. The people who don't change end up right where they were anyway, but I'm sure some manage to turn over a new leaf and not repeat their earlier mistakes.

The thing about being human is that we all instinctively want to blame somebody else for our own faults. You are often sub-defaulted because your arguments lack logic, tact, basic grammatical structure and consideration for the other forum posters - or all of the above, all at once.

The admins are not rating you down - we are.

This is our collective reaction to your posts - they often contain sub-default information. Apparently we are not collectively that interested in what you have to say. You can try changing your point of view or you can try changing how you present it or you can continue on your merry way like the unique snowflake you are, convinced that it's Somebody Else's Fault.

It's your choice, buddy.

Corny,

People with Sage, Scholar, and guru are not moderators or Admins. They are just people that have contributed posts to the website that other people enjoyed reading.

I can only speak for myself. I do rate down any post I see talking about ratings unless they are explaining them.

The score next to your post isn't determined by an Admin unless you have a negative one. (Do they do that anymore?) It is based on what other forum posters think of you. They have changed it in that you need to be at least a scholar to rate now. (I think. I haven't read the rules on karma in a long time.)

If you think you have been unfairly targeted by an Admin take it to Kaolin or Mistress Darqflame. Check the forum rules to get the information.

Edit on
Here is a link to the rules
http://www.zam.com/wiki/Forum_Rules
Section 15 is the appeals process. I really don't think an Admin is targeting you though

I can't belive I wasted my 1000 post on this. Oh well

Obviously you don't realize that anyone with a colored forum name can rate you. And it isn't trolling if most people in the forum are rating you down, it's just saying that most people either don't like what you said or severely disagree with you.

Ok, there may be a bit of trolling from members on the forum there. Not just admins, I know on occasion I've gotten annoyed by someone constantly being stupid with their posts and just rate them down. I shouldn't do that, try not to anymore. But it happens.

Of course, it could also just be that people just don't like what you say in your subsequent posts.

Yeouch. That sounds like something even almanique or gabji couldn't even dream of reaching. Maybe varusword75 though. <_<;

It would've been slightly higher if I had scholar status, but oh well, I gotta earn that privilege heh.

I do admit I am constantly amazed by the admins strength of fortitude to resist into ban rage against even the most annoying and accusatory of posters though. If it had been on BG forums, corny would either have become another troll on the general forums like lief, or more likely, been smashed by the banGrammarhammar of Doom after one post.




(That's assuming he hasn't been already.)

I'm surprised it's that low. That's less than 2 aggregate rate downs for every post. Judging by the discussion these threads have generated, surely more than 2 people are irked.

Alright, I just took a look at your posts, the administrator action on said posts, and your interaction with the community. All I can say is you really need to tone down your rhetoric if you want people to quit rating you down, and you need to immidiatly cease your trolling attempts if you wish to retain your posting ability. Trust me, if an admin starts rating your posts down in ernest, you will know. On average 40-50 users are rateing you down when you make posts like that.

Blaming the administrative staff is not conducive to your long term posting prospects...

idk but as for me it only takes 1 ratedown for me to go sub-d.. i assume thats the lowest you can go.. there used to be a avg but i cant find it anymore.. it was a score of 1-5 i guess 1 being sub d and 5 being excellent and my avg was 2.03 last i checked.. but i havent been able to find that avg in over a year now

What I'm wondering is how many rate-downs does it take to automatically become sub-default.

Is it even possible?


It's possible, there is a guy who trolls the asylum who has to make new accounts periodically because he eventually gets rated down so much that he's naturally sub-default.

If you've noticed, he hasn't posted anything, nor replied for a day or so now.
Maybe he is taking the advice that was offered to him in earnest in the other thread named "Are you Serious?"

I still think he's a deep-cover liberal who says the things he does to secretly discredit the conservative movement.

It was honest, helpful advice, and I stick by it for anyone else who thinks they're being rate camped.

Slow or stop posting for a day or three (lurk if you want) and then pick back up and be nice. If you keep getting rated down, then go to an admin.

Mikhalia: and FWIW, my posts are 95% helpful, informative, or funny.
Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.
#50mpjj, Posted: Dec 02 2010 at 12:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Was this post really necessary? It seems to me that this is an example of an admin that is doing more to help stir the pot than actually moderate the forum content. I don't like trolling, ranting, QQ anymore than the next guy but this type of behavior from an Admin irks me as well. I know you were simply stating fact but there is no way you didn't know that it would add fuel to the fire.

Again, I couldn't agree more with Mikhalia's advice.
I saw another one of his posts today in another thread and he really does seem to be trying hard to do things right. I encouraged him a bit for his attempt.
