Wow, this is probably the most drama I've ever seen on this forum.

@CannonCreator,

After this whole event I'd bet you'll be a better-behaved forum member than most around here... lol.
What's there to say that hasn't already been said? Your apology definitely seems sincere, if only slightly grammatically assraped.

You've done a good job of staying on-topic, not kicking up year-old threads, not starting arguments over pointless crap, not flaming, etc... your only "forum crimes" have been posting about things you have no clue about, and asking questions that could have been solved with a simple search. Neither of these are "forum felonies", or grounds for a ban in my opinion... Just don't repeat them and everyone's happy, man :) you worry too much.

@ everyone else,

I'm impressed with the level of maturity on this forum sometimes, despite the occasional bickering/flaming, and overall lack of spelling/grammar. As much as I may b!tch sometimes, this is a pretty awesome forum and I'm glad to help moderate it.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

Red coat is a self cock. Dont listen to him. Im a noob to but im in more sh*t than i can swim in. Mr Crowley is all over me like a nun sandwhich.
So do you mind if i quote/steal some lines from your apology. Mabey i can have stuff fixed up as well.

By the way, any one who votes someone out of spudfiles is a pine tart!


Haha didn't see this post before, I'm just doin' my job ma'am :wink:

Saboo, that's exactly the type of post that will get you thrown out, banned, and IP blocked if you persist.

We are not nasty people, but provoking anyone is the first step on a road that you really don't want to be on.
At the moment, you may have been roasted for not using the search function, but many many people get that grilling.
Don't feel that we are being harsh, but you asked questions that many of us are fed up of answering and which the briefest search could have found an answer to, so you won't get the warmest response.

Now, most people take the telling off they get for what you've done, and get on with things. You, on the other hand seem to think everyone has a personal vendetta against you because of this.

Unfortunately, the forum has the wrong attitude towards newbs. It seems that we start out with a slightly negative attitude towards them all in general, and then let them build up some reputation.
-For some this is good news - if a newb turns up with an awesome cannon, jaws hit the floor, because no-one expected it. Classification: Newb
-For others, they get on fine with it, and never really experience negatives because they don't get into arguments deliberately. Newb
-For a very few, they start arguments, make inflammatory posts, and insult the regulars and mods. This is a pure n00b.

n00bs get banned, newbies get accepted.

Saboo, I'm not sure taking lines from Cannon Creator's apology is that honest. He is sincerely sorry here, while it looks like you still think you're a victim of many awful crimes and being brutally abused. You're not being abused, you're being disciplined. I'm truly sorry if my assumption is wrong, but that is what it looks like.
I'd suggest you take note of Cannon Creator's revelation while you're here. After toning down his aggressive posting, and raising his productive research and meaningful posts, he's now a valued member of spudfiles. Perhaps you could learn something from this... :wink:
Now I'm not trying to be a douche bag here, I'm just trying to help the Spudfiles community, including you. I think banning people is wrong too (although I must say I've never heard the term "pine tart" before) but being counter productive isn't right either.

noob, I read that and wondered myself what a pine tart was. I just thought I was the only one who didn't know.
