Did a board disappear?
« on: March 01, 2008, 05:39:49 AM »

Hi.  It looks like the bottom board, the Ministry of Putting Off, is gone.  (Ironically, the very board that was intended for threads like this.)

Since Thad and I are moderators, I assume that if it'd been made into some sort of secret board, we'd still be able to see it.  So it looks like it's been just plain deleted.

My first reaction on seeing this is that one of the two admins, both of whom happen to be severely allergic to talk about Pyoko, decided that if that's all we were going to talk about there, the whole thing should go.

And since the whole thing occurred without any sort of announcement that I can find, I can only assume that this is the sort of admin wankery that got Kayumi and Ted Belmont banned for ill-explained reasons as well.

Considering how anti-censorship the board's founder is, I'm a little fucking perplexed.


THIS WAS ALL A SILLY JOKE

I see.

Then, it disappeared for just me.

Which is actually a lot more insulting.

Clearly, my influence is poisonous here.  And since the admin responsible hasn't so much as fired off a PM in my direction, this looks an awful fucking lot like the sort of passive-aggressive bullshit I thought we were escaping from.

I don't know what the fuck I did to deserve this kind of abuse, but my new theory is that they want to see if I'll actually ever make good on my old threats to leave forever.

I would prefer not to assume that, because if it did disappear as a(n undeserved?) punishment, then it's removal for me will no doubt follow shortly. It could have something to do with your recent mod status. Which means it will probably be fixed shortly.

Okay, what's going on here?  Seriously?  I heard I'm a global mod now, I guess.  Which first of all means I don't need my name on the other two boards.  But I also can't see that particular announcement because I can't see that board.

I think I may have gone paranoid or something.

My gut's telling me that's just technical errors, but I dunno, man.  After the events of the past month, I certainly wouldn't blame you for having a massive, throbbing paranoia gland; I have unwavering faith in proven traitors at the worst of times, and even I'm starting to second-guess everything from weather patterns to the availability of clean socks.

EDIT: Here's the announcement, anyway.

In unrelated news, Kazz and Thad are promoted to global moderators. I'm not entirely sure that it equates to admin status, but I can't quite be bothered to give a hemorrhaging fuck. Meanwhile, they'll likely cancel each other out like antiparticles, which is probably futile, but at least fun to watch.

I wouldn't mind Big Brother watching me if I could watch him back.

I'm guessing it's a mistake in the permissions by a mis-placed keystroke. If it is your mod-status, it's also Thad's mod-status. Presumably.

Anyhow, it's time for me to get to bed. It's hard to derp without adequate sleep.

You (and Thad) should be able to see the board now, as the Global Moderators were unchecked for that board (HURR?). I'll move this thread over if you can see it now. I also checked all the post rank groups, which were also unchecked (not that this would make a difference).

Never ascribe to malice that which can be adequately explained by incompetence.

End thread.

Well, I've basically spent the week being victimized by a forum admin, so I'm sorry for jumping to conclusions.  Thanks.

Well, okay, sometimes it's a little of both.

It'd shock you how little of interest goes on in the secret forum.

If it's anything like all the other secret boards I've seen, it's full of crickets chirping.
