I love the Pit, I really do. I'm here almost every day, I try not to make any enemies (if I have any, I'm sorry), and I like making friends. I always try to contribute to any threads I post in. I even use correct punctuation, spelling, and grammar.

However, there's one problem I've been seeing with the Pit: mods (only some, not all) routinely abuse their powers. They close threads with no warning and no reasoning. Just a few people talking, completely innocent, not breaking any rules, and BOOM, thread closed. No post by the mod, no explanation, just a closed thread left to wither in the depths of the Pit.

I've even seen a mod close a thread because, and I quote, "this thread is boring."

Now, I'm not saying that mods shouldn't close threads. I'm not even demanding anything. I just believe mods should show some courtesy and give a reason why they close a thread.

Please?

Ban-hammer coming your way!


You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine

No I agree. At least a message by the mods before they close threads would be nice.

Be sure it's something "funny".

Just could they try to be like "Oh, [stuff] is wrong with this thread, it's closed."?

I've seen them do it before, explain their reasoning.

Just now, a few of us were talking about how DragonForce was getting better live, having an honest discussion, and out of nowhere, thread closed. We weren't breaking any rules...

If I left reasons for half the drivel I have to close here then I'd never have time to close it all would I?

Not if it's obvious why, but sometimes it seems to almost get out of hand.

This thread is gonna get closed into yesterday.

Although I agree. The_Hurt_Within banned me for "being a smartass". (Yes, I am still bitter THW )
Someone posted goatse and I said:
Yo' gon' get yo ass banned, muthafucka

I got banned. Damn, I can't make this complaint without sounding like a whiny bitch, can I?

Oh well. UG is a dictatorship. Deal with it. If you don't like it, leave.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I fully support the pit mods actions. This forum needs to be harsh.

That's not the point, there aren't even explainations.

No, the mods are great. The thought of the terrible things that would be here without them is enough to keep me up at night.

I'm just asking for a little bit of common ground?

I don't ask you not to close, I ask you to tell us why first...

Those 'faggot kids' are the ones we like. The ones we ban are moronic spammers who think people helping the modding staff is bad.

Exactly. Is it too hard to pay attention to the rules of a forum?

I don't see how there is an inherent need to post pointless rubbish on a forum. You either comply with the rules, or you're out. Simple as that.
