    I think RobotChicken and Creaminess are the only ones that have been banned since Moderators came into play.
    No, the new mods were definitely here, at least whith JoeB and Tak. PYB was, however, before their time.

    Ok, but why does that matter? Those guys were flagrantly breaking the rules and the final decision rests with the FA on permanent bans.

    Or are you saying Tak was a victim?

    Kittens.

    Also, RC was spamming in PM, creating threads about Tak, necromancing 4 year old threads, as well as aiding banned members in circumventing their bans and bumping their posts and threads. He was given several chances, I think the final count is: 4 private warnings - two directly from me, and two temp bans, a 2 day and a 15 day, which I let him off of early.
    The only changes to his behavior that he made were to find new ways to be disruptive, so he has to face the consequences.

    Lastly, the assumption that we are making an example is wrong. As stated, to make an example of someone, you have to tell people about the example. And that is precisely why none of you heard about it, until now.

    I would like to move this thread to the "Questions," as it largely pertains to Moderation. Any objections before I do that?

    JB banned about 7/5
    PYB banned about 8/17
    Tak/GF banned about 8/4
    Mods started on or around 8/1

    So, JB was before. GF was about the same time. And PYB was definitely after. It seems your memory is faulty.

    Ok...either way, 3/4 were after the 3rd Re...I mean, the Mods came on board so, yeah, I was way off.

    Nope...not saying anyone is a victim. What I'm saying is it's a little harsh to permaban any of those members, including JoeB and PYB and, trust me, I am no friend of theirs.

    I also thought that PYB left on his own accord before the ban...or "taking a break" as he called it.

    Weren't you the one who gave Tak his infraction? As a Mod? After voting, in the poll, against having mods at all?

    He did, then he came back, then he got the hammer.

    Ah ok. I never even realized he came back...must have been a swift drop of the hammer for him then.
