Moderation Update

I'll be brief.

Based on lots of feedback and my general desire to quickly work toward enforcing better behavior throughout the site I have made a couple decisions.

1.) @SincerelyFranny is no longer going to be held back by me. She has been wanting to kill a lot of the nonsense behavior for a long time and I have now authorized and encouraged her to ban, restrict, silence, at her discretion at any time for any reason she deems appropriate for that moment. She can and will ban for hours, days, months and even years. Lifetime bans will remain my final decision, but if she ever wants to execute one I will likely support her decision.

Be warned, she may just temp ban or restrict a few people right after I post this because things have been a bit out of hand lately. I strongly suggest that the nonsense across the site stops immediately. She does not have my kind of patience.

If you get hammered by her for whatever reason, do not come to me for relief, it will accomplish nothing. I don't care if you think that what she did to you is fair or not fair, consistent with something else or not consistent with something else. To address an administrative action by her taken against you, you will need to discuss the matter with her and get her to remove whatever it is that she decided to do.

2.) @JJT_Defender is on now on restriction. He can submit, he can vote, but he can not post. He has received this restriction for repeatedly ignoring @SincerelyFranny 's direct answers to his questions and instead coming to me over and over again and asking the same questions he asked her. It is quite disrespectful to her and deliberately rude. He is also receiving the restriction due to the continuous reporting of unnecessary screenshot-spam posting he does in adjudication threads and other areas of the site despite repeated direct requests from the vast majority of community members not do so.

@JJT_Defender will be fully reinstated when he convinces @SincerelyFranny that he has genuine intention of improving his social behavior and being a better community participant.

Some of you may like the decisions I've made on this, some of you won't. It will change nothing. The reputation of portions of the community behavior at TG is poor, and we are going to do what it takes to put an end to it. Deliberate troublemakers will be dealt with swiftly and harshly from now on.

I'm sorry it has to be this way for the foreseeable future, but it is what it is.

Thank you.

    Jace, when you said "If you get hammered by her" perhaps a hammer icon should appear instead of the user's avatar for the duration of the ban...or over-printed on top of it.

    I'd suggest a hammer looking like Thor's but even Mjlonir for all its powers can't institute a ban...so something unique to Franny :)

    I too welcome our lovely and kind new overlordess. May she reign long and wisely. Oh, did i mention she's really smart and funny to? Not to mention eloquent, graceful, and charming? A true blessing that Mrs Franny is.

    Deleted my blog and taking the high road. I'm done fighting people that only want to cause problems and now I'll just report their horrible behavior any time I see them insult another member. That's all that needs to be done anyways... no more reactive replies to bullies as my reactions just keep them going.


    I'll be in the submission queue playing games and helping members. Games are what brought me here and games are what will keep me here. Please do your best and make your best judgements, Franny. We all know you're the real backbone of this site, we have all said it multiple times.

    I'm going the Dwight Schrute approach here and won't kiss ass. Merely Congratulate her and the decision by Jace to clean things up a bit. There is a lot of constructive critisim on here that comes from a good place, and with that comes emotion and sarcastic remarks. There is also deliberate attacks. I hope if one gets banned, they are at least informed of it what it is they are being banned for and have the opportunity to explain it to TG through PM at least. After all, it's very clear that one thing said CAN be misinterpreted by someone else.

    This is a good thing, long overdue.

    You should be kissing her ass. She's helped more behind the scenes than you'll ever know.

    excellent move kyle. ass-kissing is for weaklings, totally unbecoming to one as brave and wise as you. thank for your example. you make this site a better place and i dont thank you enough for that. Might i add your game boy skills are impeccable and your comments are always spot on.

    Do y'all notice that when Jace speaks everyone thinks he has a hidden agenda in everything he does but when Franny speaks we just love her and immediately listen and agree.


    Franny for TG custodian 2020.

    No doubt she deserves the promotion, if you will. And she has definitely done more up front than any TG staffer I have seen. The Errors thread alone proves that. No offense to the other staffers who are behind the scenes that we don't know. She has earned it.

    They usually don't animate here when they're over 1MB in size.
