That doesn't seem like the kind of sense of humor that the mods appreciate...
but alas you are back...and so I must change my perspective on those here.

As someone pointed out this will do no good.
Scott says he's back so he's back.
Even if Captian was banned a million times he has the support of the head mod and therefore rules do not apply to captain anymore.

You may see it that way but it was evidently 'retaliation'.

Had that been the case, I wouldn't have been banned in the first place. Please rethink your logic.

Re: Captain Cornflake - WTF?

I don't think too many have a problem with him being back. Some people just don't like that he was given a slight bit of power without it being brought up.

That's not how it works. First of all, Scott, while being awesome, knows where to draw the line. He wouldn't knowingly let things get out of control.

Second, Scott is extremely respected, not a god.

I was just using a hyperbole

But it does seem unfair that on top of being brought back he was given powers (even though they are terribly minimal). This just seems to take the unfairness further.

Have many other banned people been brought back?
I mean anyone less 'known' than the captain here

Re: Captain Cornflake - WTF?

Mess was banned once. I did it myself. I also suggested his unbanning 4 or 5 months later. He is, at the moment, a reasonably respected veteran member. I can't think of any other specific examples off the top of my head, but it's not unusual for people to be unbanned. People change. People also makes mistakes or rethink prior decisions - and the mods are people.

Does Captain currently hurt the forum? No. Does he provide laughs? Yes. Is he a bit irritating? Perhaps, but not to a point where he's not worth keeping around. Ultimately, people are banned when we think they have a negative effect on the community here, and aren't likely to change for a time. Captain is not having a negative effect on the community, and therefore he is allowed to remain.

It is as simple as that, and I don't see why this is even an issue. It's not like it hurts any of you to have him around.

Re: Captain Cornflake - WTF?

As I said, it's just his notoriety and, I suppose, abrasiveness.

You should have switched 'perhaps' and 'yes' around.
Does her provide laughs? -> perhaps (if you have no sense of humor) jk captain
Is he a bit irritating? -> yes (lol conceit is one of my pet peeves)

Well how do we know that everyone banned at this point wouldn't come back and make positive contributions? Why was captain given 'special' treatment?

No your right it doesn't bother me 'persay' that he's here or even that he's 'back'.
It just all seemed a little to suspicious and with regards to his history here at ZU he just doesn't seem like the most likely candidate to have been brought back....and given 'powers'.

That isn't what you stated before.

For the last time, my "powers" are nothing even remotely close to staff powers. It is for a contest held at another site. About all I can do is pin a new topic about a contest update. It doesn't put me in any sort of 'high and mighty' position. (At least, none that I already havn't placed myself in. )

Lets consider for a moment that the contest (which I was running for nearly a year behind the ban) has only brought benefit to the community. So, really now, who is this "unfair" to?

Quite a few. This includes the only person here who wins more internets than me.

Re: Captain Cornflake - WTF?

Dozens of members have been brought back after being banned and have gone on to be kickbutt members of the community. :3

Mr. Shatner, however, is a disgrace to this entire forum and should throw himself off of the nearest cliff that has a large collection of pointy rocks below it.

Every time I read his posts, I imagine Cato the Elder with that crappy B-actor's voice... it makes me want to puncture my ear drums, honestly. ;_;

Ah, did the fiancee rejoin the mod team? Is she gonna cry her mod-team wail?

Seriously, Cato was the badassest mother ****er of all the Roman state. Second only to Sulla, for getting there first.

To reiterate, again: It doesn't matter, since the mod team needs to be destroyed anyway.

Screw Sulla or Cato - Lucius Junius Brutus was where it's at, nigra. :O

And Mystery, I'm obviously being sarcastic about this whole thing. I doubt I'd be engaged to a guy as poor as him if I really thought he should kill himself... :3

I liked Cap'n well before he was banned. And I definitely had power at that time.


I am inclined in every case to grant amnesty, assuming a person promises (and does) shape up/not repeat offenses that caused bans. It is not unique to Cap'n.

As for his mod power, what he stated is true, and he is not on staff.

He can't delete posts in this forum.

What, exactly, is wrong with letting him run a competition that he founded and runs?
