There were 8 posts about Burn Norman's characters name clogging up the episode 4 review page, they were snipped for being off-topic.

Question, Don. When do we post here, when we delete multiple comments and move/edit threads, or each time we delete/edit a single comment? Because in that case, I should say I deleted a few chat comments yesterday,

I think this was a case of too much again, Donal. And I entirely disagree that it was off topic.

Anyway, oddly enough I thought that this was in the Moderator forum. So I was responding under the impression that this notification was done on that forum. So at the very least, the whole part about being transparent is not as much of an issue as I said it was.

Mass-deleted some comments in the "Review the episode in 10 words or less" thread. Sorry Ry, Yvy & BaS, 10 words or no, it was still veering off-topic. Plenty of other threads for ass comparison.

Lol. Okay Japie. I deleted my post because it was more appropriate for chat, since it was gossipy. It didn't need to be saved for all time in our threads. But thanks for looking out for me, Ser Rygar.

Then where should I post my questions if there is an update yet on the mobile issue if not in the "forumissues" topic? Should I just PM you? My comment that was deleted was quite on topic.

Deleted 3 out of 4 separate jokes threads that linked to the same site. Advertising is ok, but this was pushing it a bit.

I deleted a post I found directed at the originator of the "Making Artyfacts" thread that I found particularly hostile but claiming to speak on behalf of members of the forum.  I consulted with the other moderators after the fact and they have agreed with my decision.

When I told the originator of the post that I did this, and explained why, which I did in private to save ourselves from having another incident of online posting drama, what I was told included "Fuck you. " I am not personally taking action but have asked another moderator to look into it. 

Any active community member who wishes to know the text of either the deleted post or my response to that user can message me, but saving the details from being published on a public page. 

DNA Note: The ban is for 24 hours.

Hi all! I will be taking an online fast starting this Wednesday, in honor of the Christian season of Lent, and will not be online (except perhaps on Sunday afternoon, mostly to check messages) until past Easter. If you all need me ask the forum leader to email me.

Mr. Storm! Your will does you credit. I'd be cheating at first opportunity. I'd hoped to read you as the season starts, but it will be for the end then. Not to worry, GoT first episodes will be shitty. I saw it in Mel's fires ;)

wicgeeks.com needs to redirect. Or else we lose all our google juice.

Yup, what Cary said. Can't we keep it open for a while, redirecting here, like we did the first time?
Oh and the name of the page (when you bookmark it) still reads Winter Is Coming Fan Forum, or is it just me?

Yes, please redirect the old page if at all possible! At least until we build up this name a bit. And what Macha said, we need to change the name of the page as well.

I checked if we can use our old wicgeeks as a redirect, their response:

"I'll double check, but I'm fairly certain the old domain will not
function after switching since we do not currently support having
multiple domains on a forum (though from what the development team tells
me this will be an option in the future)."

I think it's absurd for them not to have an option that allows redirects from domain to domain, especially since it's in their interest too that we don't lose visitors.

Interesting that our old link - winteriscomingfans.activeboard.com/ redirects here to fleabottom. Can we use that somehow?

Edit: actually scratch that, that's just the non-paid version which is identical, I doubt we can do something similar with wicgeeks.

Changed the forum name, lemme know if it still says "Winter is coming" for anyone.
And our current forum icon is a bowl o'brown but if you find anything better, we can change it.

I did a bit of spring cleaning in the Game Of Thrones: The HBO Television Series forum.

To keep things tidy, there are now two categories for S4:

General dicussion - where everybody can create a topic

and Reviews (reply only), where everybody can reply, but only Don or approved users can create topics. This was done to encourage discussion in one place, because last year it was all a bit messy with two separate threads for each episode, plus individual user reviews etc.smile 

If we want to repeat last year's "Review the episode in 10 words or less" (which was pretty cool!), let's just add them to the S4: general discussion category.

Hope everybody's ok with this. We have one *NO spoiler* topic for each episode, and one general Book to Screen topic for the entire season.

It should be a great improvement from last season, which was still quite good IMO.

Re: The Movie clips thread.

No "serious" forum allows embedding of videos, because it's just terrible for people with slower internet connections. BaS and I were in favor of linking to videos, Al and Don liked the idea of hiding them under the spoiler tag, and others kept on simply embedding them. There was no general consensus, but I thought it was common sense we should choose one of those two options. My bad. I personally edited some of the posts, thinking that maybe they were posted from a phone and I was doing them a favor by helping. My bad, again. Lesson learned.
If you need a disclaimer in writing, that's great - just pick whatever suits you best and we'll implement it in all video threads (including "Currently listening"). There's no need for jumping at each others throats over such little details. Asking nicely usually does the trick. Thanks.

I deleted a comment from the Movie Clips thread.
Asking everyone to behave themselves minutes *after* I just did so is pretty tiresome. Please sort out your issues in private, or if you have a problem you think it best to be talked about, please contact me or Don with your issue.
And this goes for everyone.
Thank you.

User Al Swaeregen was banned from the site for 24 hours for profanity aimed at a Moderator in chat.
The moderator in question will fill in this post with the details of the conversation that caused the altercation.

 

---

"I deleted a comment in chat that I felt in context was spoilerish. Considering the other comments that were surrounding it, it was certainly close. Al said it wasn't spoilerish but pervy. I responded, that even if it wasn't spoilerish, it was paedophilic (this was in jest, as there have been similar comments such as that in chat that haven't been deleted).  

"Al continued to complain about how we are just as bad as Winter is Coming. He was relentless. Half the time I ignored him, conversing with other people on the chat room. At one point Al said "Fuck You". I ignored this, because I admit to being somewhat aloof to his concerns.  I left the channel.  Another user had come on to the channel in the meantime and wasn't helpful with his remarks; 

"After I returned, Al had not let it go, and continued to antagonize me. I alternately ignored him or made snarky asides. Probably best I should have completely ignored him. When I finally told the channel I was ignoring him, he used a highly disparaging antigay slur that has since been put on the banned words list.

"Also, just for the record, I did not endorse banning Al at that point. The situation was highly charged. But by the time it was discussed, Al had deleted his account. "

- Cary Storm

I'm on a retreat between today and next Wednesday the 7th. I don't believe I will have internet access. It's just Don and Macha for that time! Have fun!

P.S.: I really like Al and hope he gets over whatever it is that's got his goat by then.
