Some facts....

BOTH individuals that have done this will soon realize they've been caught red handed.

It is VERY easy for me to see who rates threads, what threads, etc.

I am the ONLY one that can see who rates threads, for now.

IF this happens again, regardless of if it's the same people or not, it will be a serious consideration for being banned from site.



My comments...

To have two long standing members of this forum act like childish trolls is completely embarrassing, to them. I'm sure they'll appreciate that for now Sicy and I have decided not to 'out' them in public.... despite the fact that they completely deserve whatever harassment they'd get from the PLEBAn's.

I'm very disappointed.

Joel

That kind of stuff with thread rating has happened in here plenty of times before, granted not to that extent but it has.

I think the ratings should just be eliminated, clearly some people feel compelled to be childish and annoying about it.

The abusers will go before the ratings go. I don't give in to forum 'terrorists'

If they are compelled to be childish, they must also be compelled to get kicked outta here... and I'll make sure that happens.

In certain forums this is way more hurtful than others. For example, some people work really hard on things such as wallpapers and icons and yes, though I know some people think it silly, Fan fiction... in cases like that, it feels very much like a personal attack. I feel the need to mention it because the people who are rating threads low with no comment are just being mean. there are no two ways around that. They are demeaning something someone has done to express themselves without having the courage or respect to even say why.

I think that in order to rate a thread you should have to be able to explain your reasoning, at least.


And I wanted to say thank you for not simply blowing this off, as well, to Elvis and Sicy and the others who have spoken up

I've removed thread ratings in PLEBA until I have time to clean-up their handy work.

Ok, well I will confess to being the "terrorist." It was I who orchestrated the whole thing, so you can put all the blame on me. Annnnnnnyway, I think some people are making a bigger deal out of it than it really is. I mean they are just pictures of stars next to threads, if you're biggest concern is pictures of stars next to threads then you have a pretty good life.

First, this was not a personal attack against anyone as it was done to evvvvvery thread. So if you feel personally attacked, please don't.

Second, this was not really even an attack against PLEBA. I have nothing against PLEBA, sure I roll my eyes every now and then, but I understand band drooling has its place. So I'm fine with PLEBA.

So then why do it you ask? Don't you love rating threads and have your rating be the one that makes the stars appear? It's exciting. Anyway, yes I was bored last night and couldn't sleep, so I thought, hey let's go rate some threads and see what pops up. Did I get a little out of hand, sure, but that's what boredom does to a person.

Like I said, it was not intended to offend anyone, and if it did, then I apologize. It's just cool to see a whole page of threads rated with stars, that was the main reason for it. Who doesn't like a night sky full of stars? It's beautiful.

Anyway you can yell at me now if you wish.

Oh, as if we hadn't guessed that

Now, if you want to provide us with some new information, you'll tell us who your partner in crime was.

You do realise that abuse of thread ratings is an offense punishable by castration don't you? It's in the rules (they used invisible type because they didn't want to scare all the guys away, but it's still there).

Soooo...when are you going in for your "emergency testosterone reduction surgery?"
