Ok... I guess I should say something about this mess eh?

Ok... first of all, I have no intention of banning Ravage, removing anonymous access, or getting rid of the silly anon name thing, so don't even bother asking. The systems all worked perfectly fine until tonight when suddenly all hell broke loose.

Without being here for it, its kinda hard to say exactly what happened, even though I've gotten a fairly good depiction built together by about four sources, its just not the same as actually watching it happen. At any rate, apparently a joke post was made, but nobody got the joke. Well, shit happens. Until I actually knew about it from an inside source, after first reading it, I didn't get it either. However it certainly doesn't justify all this nonsense.

As far as I can tell, a dispute broke out between SM and MM about the whole thing, which is really my fault. I forget that I'm dealing with relative newbies here and not my irc friends who all have years of experience as Opers/Moderators, so I forgot to go over a few things that I should have. I do note that nothing was deleted which is a good sign, but the apparent dispute was over just who has the right to do what, which I didn't make very clear to them. So I take blame for it.

I don't really know what is going to come of it so far as those two goes, I hope they can work it out between them. I do know that the whole thing started with just a large odd set of circumstances that managed to turn into this, and by themselves were all pretty much harmless.

So I dunno, I'm kinda stuck right now. I could rearrange the user rights, the anonymous access, the power structure, everything, and I don't honsetly think it'd do a damn thing, since thats not the problem. What I will do is make sure that in the future I don't forget to go over things like this, and hopefully a strange set of circumstances that causes a fight like this doesn't arise again.

But it happens to every community sooner or later, so lets just try to get through it as best we can.

-Hmm, I could swear I saw some posts deleted... also, why ban Ravage!? He didn't do anything wrong. - RStefan01 - 2000-04-01 00:00:00
--I said I wasn't banning him. - Tridus - 2000-04-01 00:00:00
---But why even consider banning him? - RStefan01 - 2000-04-01 00:00:00
----I didn't. And after checking, looks like 1 post was deleted. - Tridus - 2000-04-01 00:00:00
----I considered it, because... - SM_007 - 2000-04-01 00:00:00
