Hello Slendernation, how is your evening? Great and fine and dandy, I'm sure, judging by all the recent posts.
It seems everyone sensible has started packing up and saying their farewells, but some maybe still on the fence about this whole thing (either due to bias or who may not yet be convinced that Doc taking over is a terrible thing)
To those of you still on the fence I'd like you to consider a few things. I'm not even going to dredge up anything from when Doc was booted originally, only point out things he has done since his return:
First and foremost he has already flat out lied. See post here
where he states that he has done nothing but edit his name out of posts. That's partially true in that he edited his name out of at least one post that I've seen, but he has edited other posts
(of course there could be more but who fucking knows at this point)
He has locked any threads that have even vaguely spoken out against him (I'm not even going to link any I'm sure everyone has seen this just go through flamewars) and he has deleted quite a few members just for stating the facts and stating their opinions (I am posting on behalf of some of said members as they are deleted now and wanted these things to be pointed out)
He's planning on promoting modship to creators who may or may not even be qualified to be moderators just for the fact that they are ~Creators~. For someone who is supposedly trying to to create a sense of elitism on this forum this is pretty damn counterproductive.
This whole this is supposedly not a personal vendetta and yet the first thing he posts when he gets back is about revenge
and he does it in the most absolutely childish manner that could be managed.
He has already ignored blatant spam and double posts from people simply for speaking in favor of him.
That's all that I have gathered and doesn't even take into consideration the reason he was booted in the first place (The thread zander posted that got deleted). He has taken over the forum and stated it was justified because "he owned it". Well, the mods who have worked here since the time he left put a lot of hard work into this place. It was actually decent and there was no drama for a very long time (TILL NOW IN FACT). Who's to say they are less entitled to ownership of this place? They certainly seem to deserve it more merely for the effort that went into it (and not to mention actually being decent fucking people
). But I suppose this end bit is more of a matter of opinion than anything. Whatever.
I'm not going to get personal on this post myself. I already said my farewell in another thread that Im too lazy to link here and I doubt anyone that's left cares much. I don't have any personal words for Doc as he is, quite frankly, not worth my time.
If you want to hang around, fine, but know that your new admin is not a good person nor deserving of his position.
