Fined trigun for hijacking FS post. (in Public Record)


AdminShade January 29 2006 11:10 AM EST

In this thread he advertises for someone else's FS thread which is considered hijacking.

Fined the usual $25k

Shade, Tyra was "Searching for CoI , AG's, MCM".
Special J was selling these things. Trigun was being helpful, not hijacking.

I have to agree with Mael. Maybe trigun could have been a little more specific in his post but it looked to me like he was merely trying to be helpful to Tyra and not hijack the thread.

Shade,

I tend to agree, Trigun was trying to show Tyra where he could buy a COI and AG.

I think the fine was a bit harsh.

I agree ...it was helpful to me.

bad shade.... bad....

QBPixel Sage January 29 2006 12:14 PM EST

Sorry Shade, but I do agree with the above.

wouldn't this be, umm not hijacking...more like using the forums to buy and SELL?

This is perhaps the most retarded fine I've ever seen, Central Bank would have dinero rolling out the doors (more than usual at least) if this "rule" of your was enforced across the board. I see this kind of helpful direction by others on a daily basis.

I'm now going to look through all of your past posts Shade, if find one with you doing the same, I would expect you to fine yourself unless you're just feeling like a hypocrite today.

AdminShade January 29 2006 1:57 PM EST

Tezmac, instead of making a fool out of me and go on a witch hunt, why not contact me 'personally' to correct the mistake I made?

After all even I am, only human.

I will refund Tezmac the money he sent to trigun from my admin character because this was a mistake of me as I didn't see that Tyra was wanting to buy items as well.

Tezmac January 29 2006 1:58 PM EST

Well I couldn't find anything except for Shade's spamming of his RoE rental service when people are explicitly asking to buy an RoE, such as here.
Does this constitute a hijack as well being that you are trying to offer something of yours which someone else doesn't desire in a thread you didn't pay for?

AdminShade January 29 2006 2:00 PM EST

Tezmac, lay it off, that reply was providing a service just in case the person wasn't able to buy one in the meanwhile.

So let me know since when that is spam and I will search out the forum for hundreds of similar posts.

Play nice, girls.

Maelstrom January 29 2006 2:18 PM EST

Shade, I didn't intend my comment as criticism of your actions. I was sure that you simply didn't realize why trigun posted in that thread, and I was just pointing it out to you.

Tezmac, 25k isn't a big deal, don't get too worked up about it.

Godpanda January 29 2006 3:20 PM EST

Tezmac im sending u 25k so lay off will ya?

NSFY January 29 2006 4:14 PM EST

HA! So this is why so many people call me a jerk - there is some kind of jerk bounty!

QBPixel Sage January 29 2006 4:51 PM EST

Tezmac: I know you find what Shade did as a stupid mistake, but there's no need to be pissed off about it. I'm sure if you gave time for Shade to come back to this thread and realize he made a mistake (yes, even admins and subadmins aren't perfect), he would have fixed it.

I vote for the closing of this thread.

trigun January 29 2006 6:14 PM EST

woah..to wake up to this is weird..thanks to those who knew my intentions..especially tezmac..good to see old clan ties run deep..hehe =P

and no worries shade..we all make mistakes..^_^

sssimmo January 29 2006 7:19 PM EST
