Yep, no joke, between this thread and others I think I was up and logged in for at least 36 hours. There was an explosion of ATS existentialism and a little identity crisis flowing through ATS yesterday and this thread was a welcome release valve.

There were so many mods here and on Mods vs Super Mods that creationists, survivalists, and GFL groupies ran amok and into each other. Funny and disturbing like the speedo guy.

Actually, I think, that the mods might have gotten in a bit of a pickle because if it.
They are being conspicuously snippy and "letter of the lawish" today. As if to compensate for their petulance. God help you if your avatar is a couple of pixels bigger than the T&C requirements. I haven't been here that long but that was the first avatar "raid" I was a part of. Nobody wins with Fascism but the road makers.

Yet the kindness of the mods was apparent. The tone was like "listen, you know I don't care about the size of your avatar but I got to do my job, help me out".

It surely was a great day at ATS. It was a pleasure being a small small part of it.

Anyway, back to bama v. cain. Yikes!

Why is it that on page one of this thread there are a few Mods posting one-liners without them being told not to issue one-liners? Isn't that a violation of the T&C? Don't the same rules that apply to me, apply to you and other mods? Do Mods have "executive license" to post what they want? Even if it violates the T&C?


If I may field this one...

One line warnings and conduct per the T&C are considered with context heavy in mind.

That is to say, if a member posted a one line answer to a posted question, and that answer was succinct and to the point, there would no breach of T&C.

The one line rule is aimed toward the "Atta Boy" and "I (dis)agree" posts, posts that do not add any information to the conversation and as such only serve to be an added 'bump' to the conversation.

Also, there are threads from time to time that are humorous in nature that we Mods do participate in. We are human and we as well like to have a good time. I also think that it is important to show our lighter side every now and again to show that we are indeed members like everyone else.

These types of threads, feel free to participate in kind..

Yes, I agree.



Just kidding. We're people too, why don't we get more love


see, now it's not a one line post.

actually it still is, but I'm just making a point.

whats my point? Oh yeah, that adding the line "this isn't a one line post" doesn't stop a one line post from being a one line post.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Earlier someone asked about pet peeves, the OP I think. Mine isn't a big one, it's more along the lines of how you sometimes marvel at other drivers doing something dumb going down the highway'

Why would anybody start their post ..."I know this is off topic, but........" ? If you took time to write that, you could have stopped.

Is it go through Sdog's profile day?

I will tell you the same thing I tell Mrs. Sdog: You're right, I'm sorry, it's my fault.
Can we move on now?

Anyway "I'm new here so I'm not sure where to post this . . ."

Well, after pages of reading, I can add "what they said."

Oh, and add one more Canadian (currently residing un the USA) here.

Thanks for stopping by Zed, it truly is an honor to have a Site Admin. piping in. I really don't know all that much about you... if you have time fill me in. If you don't have time, that's cool, just know that it's nice meeting you.

I see this thread is starting to fizzle about both on the member side as well as the mod side of the equation. I know I say thank you too much as it is, but.... I'd like to take the time to say a special thank you to everyone that made this thread what it is, both informative and fun. I, for one, will be watching every step I make on ATS, and not because of the mod boogeymen that might be out to get me if I make a mistake. I'll be watching my step because I have an astronomical amount of respect for the mods for coming and goofing off like everyone does from time to time. What I'm saying is... I'll continuously behave myself out of respect for the mods as opposed to toeing the line because of the threat of negative consequences.

The down side of this of course, is that fact that now the mods know who I am, my name will stick out when they are reading a thread I have posted in. It's kinda like knowing the principal in high school. It can certainly be a double edged sword. In the end though this has been an amazing thread, and I'm glad I took the risk and slapped together the original post.

Thank you.

So in summation you really dislike oversize avatars. I can certainly understand that, I have been annoyed by quite a few during the past year. Thanks for contributing..... it looks like this thread is just about dead at this point. Anyhow, rock on.
