  How To Deal with Trolls (and other nuisances) [WIP]
Posted by: badatnames - 05-30-2015, 03:31 AM - Forum: News and Updates - Replies (10)

This is the thread for ideas to handle a troll or some other annoyance. Feel free to give your own ideas, and I hope it helps you all.

Rule 1 - DON'T FEED THE TROLLS
We all know the golden rule of fighting trolls is to never feed them. Trolls live off anger, and letting them die off is the best course of action. The best way to prevent feeding a troll is to remember that everything they say about you is just to annoy you, and most likely not true. Keeping this in your head will help you stop from getting angered.

Rule 2 - Leave It to the Mods and Report the Troll
Mods are the best people for dealing with the trolls. You may be a master at debating, but the mods are the only ones who can actually get rid of them. If you truly think they are trolling and a mod hasn't stopped them yet, you can always report them.

Rule 3 - Don't Troll Back
(thanks, sowsow12345)
It's not a good idea to rage at trolls, but don't do the opposite of that either. This will only get you both in trouble. Also, don't be a troll in the first place. Trolling is never good, okay?

It's not a long list, but this is still a work in progress.

Big thanks to SoosUnknown and Arson Sasport for helping me with this.

Hey there!

Welcome to the team, MysterySeeker and SoosUnknown!
I'm sure both of you will do a great job at keeping the forum a fun
place for everyone to be in :)

  Where do I begin?
Posted by: Feyrah - 03-02-2015, 10:20 PM - Forum: News and Updates - Replies (33)

First off, I am very sorry for my long absense.

Most of you probably know how life gets sometimes, and lots of things happened that distracted me from the boards. I finished school, had to find a job, and now that I have a job I work full time from mondays to fridays and I cannot be online on weekends very much due to real life reasons.

As the time of absense became longer and longer, so did my "fear" of coming back to find you guys angry at me for leaving - but as I can see, FloatingEyeball has been taking VERY good care of you guys when I couldn't. Thank you for that!

Since I have been gone for quite a while, I am currently taking some time to get used to the forum interface again. As of now, I managed to fix a few broken images, changed the forum background color a little and added a fixed maximum signature size of 700x300 pixels. I am serry if you had a big signature that will now be cut off in posts, but the pixel limit was established in the forum rules from the very start - signatures that are too big can hinder everyones reading experience and make the board very cluttered very soon. I hope you'll all find nice new siganures that fit the size limit!
Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am looking into finding more people to help moderating the forums because I still won't be able to become fully active again, but don't want to leave you guys deserted.

We'll figure things out! Thank you for reading this.

As DreamDemon has pointed out, we've been having a few threads with repeated topics lately, so I'm going to be merging the posts in the newer/shorter ones with the others.

For threads with polls on them that were made to continue something, such as the new moderator and shack award threads, I will not move those, but any polls after that should be posted in the original thread instead, and the votes PMed or posted in there. (it also allows you to have more options)

This is for newcomers who are unaware of this forum's culture. Basically, people say stuff, and I add it to a giant forum metalist. Everything is in the first post. Wanna add? Then post ur stuff.

I don't really know where they're coming from, but I told DesertFOX to
look into it. We thought the safety question and capcha code would
do the trick, but somehow they've found a way to get through these.

Just keep reporting any of them as soon as you see them and please,
don't reply to them. They don't read it anyway since they're not real
people. ;)

Also, I am really sorry for my absence lately. I check for PMs and reported
things every day, but I can't really post a lot. I am just out of my exams and
I have taken on a summer job and have to work early/late and nightshifts, alongside
job applications and my college's final design exhibition.
Please keep reporting any threads or posts that you think should be moved,deleted
or corrected, signatures or profile images that are too large... really anything you
stumble upon that you think isn't in order.
Thank you!

Best regards,
Feyrah

This forum was founded by Feyrah and me on a warm Tuesday evening, August 21st, while sitting in a little restaurant in Stuttgart, Germany. After doing some basic setup and testing, it went public the following weekend.

Today, after 7 short weeks, this forum just reached the number of 300 registered users!

Thank you guys all so much for being here Lub !!!

Hey guys, I just finished setting up a new mail server for this forum.

So - if you want, you can now get @mystery-shack.com email addresses. The webmailer is kinda basic, but it works and you can also make use of POP3, IMAP and SMTP protocols for your own favorite mail client.

http://mail.mystery-shack.com:

So if you'd like an address, send me a pm with your request and I will set it up. You will be given an initial password which you can always change yourself using the webmailer preferences.

Have fun, DesertFOX
