    Members grievance thread

    Right

    In light of the in-fighting and issues we have been having lately, im creating this thread for ALL members to say what they wanna say or what they are unhappy about regarding PSU, us as staff, anything.

    Please do not turn this into a staff bashing thread, but DONT be afraid to say what you want. There will be no infractions handed out for posting here unless you break a rule. (Similar to the punching bag thread)

    If this doesn't work, then can any staffer please close it.

    We welcome you ALL to come and speak,

    Go.

    I want to start with one question.

    Why was Dave banned again? Seriously? Was it justified this time?

    I will soon get into my other huge rant on certain things. But lets start with something easy.

    Well, I have been distraught for years. I am still waiting for forum theme choices. Not a day doesn't go by that I wish I could switch over to a fuchsia, with a comic san serif font. And we need more hot chicks posting here.

    He was let back from a perma-ban, and those members are told they will be banned again at first sign of their previous behavior. Dave kept harassing and insulting a certain member, so we banned him.

    The same thing happened to Snowhawk and Spider. As far as I know, Kwesnoth and Soldier are the only members who were able to come back without relapsing.

    Dave is something this community needs, a little injection of life. In my opinion he was banned again based on personal issues towards him which are unjustified, and downright uncalled for.

    Again, you're just being skeptical. That's our policy on perma-banned members who are given a second chance, and he didn't follow it. Cuguy told him straight up what the situation was.

    If it were personal issues, I would not have lifted his ban to begin with!

    Just as Ix said, that is how it works. Soldier and Kwes are the only two previously banned members so far who have rebounded and learned from their past mistakes.

    It was the same for me. One rule break, and back out the door I go.

    Yup, I make it clear with every one of them that coming back is a one shot deal.

    I found his ban which was created, but there is no link to the source of the reasoning. Care to provide? I have come across a few posts in the past few days which are filled with lies about Dave, and it is very unprofessional. I have been here since 2005 and know him on a personal level, and was here for his rise as CM, and now his ultimate demise. His beginning of PSUni, eventual sale, and the list goes on. I am tired of those speaking out about him as if they have known him for years and had backyard BBQ's with the guy. Please stop speaking on issues you know nothing about.


    There was a mass un-banning done some time ago. To me this came off as a way to try and re-generate this place with activity, which is a good idea. However, in the end it is quite sad that it would come to something like that.

    The name change is mildly irksome to me. Select Member Council makes no sense. It'd be similar to a group being called the Jump Members Group, or the Run Members Group. 'Select Members Council' implies, logically, that it's a group that selects members rather than being a group of the selected. It should be Selected Members Council.

    It's very slightly saddening that no one ever seems to remember me.

    So do I cyber.. and just about daily, I check into these things to see if I can speed any of it up. Believe me man, all of the stuff you brought up (most of it actually) I put in myself into the tracker database. It is just a matter of when it will be handled.

    What I will figure out a way to do, is pull a report from our tracking software to show what HAS been done and what is on the books waiting, so members can see what is and isn't getting accomplished.

    This is something that should not happen. The staff member that deleted a post should either PM the member or make a post in the thread explaining why posts were deleted, which usually happens when many posts need to be purged.

    'Select' can be used as an adjective as well. You're just thinking of the verb.



    Simply put, the name explains that the SMC are chosen for being the best members for the job.

    There was a mass un-banning done some time ago. To me this came off as a way to try and re-generate this place with activity, which is a good idea. However, in the end it is quite sad that it would come to something like that.

    I wouldn't call 4 users a mass unbanning

    Ya know what, no.. I do not know Dave personally. Honestly, while SMC here, Dave was a huge ass even to me. It was widely accepted at PSU and among the staff at that time that Dave was not approachable in anyway. He never helped me once as a new staffer. Not once. All of the backstory that has been posted about him, came from people above me handing down info about what happened. However, that backstory has nothing at all to do with his recent unbanning and rebanning. Nothing. It may all well be misinformation, I accept that I was probably lied to at this point. Does it matter? That is 4 yrs+ old information and not even relevant. I already said, if this was in any way personal, do you think I would have pulled Dave's ban? No.

    He gave me a compelling discussion in email, then squandered his chance away.

    Exactly.. if you see posts go missing, let myself or another staffer know and we can see who deleted the post and ask why.

    I always hear that a lot of things were improved and some bugs fixed but all of my issues still persist and persist and persist...

    It would be cool if a report of fixed and improved things would be displayed to regular members.

    That is something I am actively working on in my spare time. It was suggested by our new SMC, Soldier. Issue is, I have to find a way to get a usable report out of the software.

    Man, believe me when I say that I do check on this stuff. Let me see what I can do about getting some public updates!
