This thread is for the after-action reports of moderation action conducted by administrators and moderators. Admins and mods are required to post the formal reports that they respond to, BUT NOT the identity of the person making the report. Individuals who request moderation action can choose to make their doing so public.

April 24th 2013: Due to a series of issues including repeated reports, personal attacks, and unfounded allegations of voter fraud, the third Mod vote was terminated with Chronodekar counted as the winner. No warnings were issued, and the Admin involved (myself) admits to pursuing the matter in an unprofessional manner and has resolved to prevent further such issues.

That said, the issue is closed.

April 25th 2013: Watashiwa posted in a thread against rules twice, edited a post against rules once. A warning has been issued by Watashiwa at Watashiwa for un-Adminship like behavior. Thread maker Schema has forgiven the offense, negating the warning on the negotiated condition Watashiwa post the picture of a cat in some other thread at some other time within the next month.

Please can you delete the "off topic" posts in this thread: http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=10361

I wanted to keep that thread clear of tangents and keep all the comments in one place, so people wouldn't get annoyed with things.

Thanks for your time
Posts were deleted as requested.

Same day: A "No" option was added to polls discussing the possibility of new Digimon and Original Fiction sub-fora and categories.

April 29, 2013: Request from Shirotsume and Ray to do something about the wall of text post by Lord Raine in the thread "So Hawk came back" resolved.

If any other moderator or admin wants to deal with the shitstorm brewing in the talk section, have at it. I'm done for the night.

April 29th, 2013: As the "Hawk Came Back" thread was getting more spam than posts, I closed it and opened a new "Delicious Confections" thread for the purpose of allowing that talk to continue in a place where it would be topical.

April 30, 2013: Edited the poll in a suggestion thread here,

http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=19635

to make it more clear. The OP is aware of the edit and approved it via IRC. Oddly enough, the OP isn't allowed to modify their own polls.

Didn't officially act as a mod, but I think it's fair to note this down: spotted a NSFW link in a post of Seitora's outside the NSFW section after a report, but before I could point that out to him and have him edit it out, he deleted all the links due to broken hotlinking, so I left an unofficial suggestion message from fellow user to fellow user in that topic.

The post in question, which is now NSFW-free, is this:

http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=19584&pid=1162589#pid1162589

The post I made in response is this:

http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=19584&pid=1162602#pid1162602

The rule that came into play is the one concerning no NSFW material outside the Restricted section.

...god, I suck at making official reports. Is this satisfactory? :(

As far as I'm concerned, the point of these reports is to make a public note of when a mod/admin takes action. That way everyone has a general idea of what behavior is permitted and not permitted (apart from ensuring that we don't misuse our powers).

Way I see it, you've explained everything clearly and we can follow up the related threads if we need to, so I think its done well. Or 'satisfactory' as you put it. ;P

May 1st 2013: Moved The Old Republic, DOTA2, and League of Legends related thread to the MMO topic. More likely in the future, will not be reported here.

Ogame forum deleted, threads moved to MMOs.

Also moved "It's just not the same anymore..." to Rants. Should have been there from the start, really.

While TFF doesn't hold itself to the same strict standards as Space Battles, we've still got limits in regards to the general public. Please understand.

Adding [Sailor Moon] to this thread,
http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=12341
(And I UNDID my change above. Just saw that there was already another idea thread in that fandom)

Was planning to do similar tags in the Type Moon section, but can't decide which thread is which. Have asked and waiting for a reply.

In the meantime, I'm going to make that 'notable sticky' thread I discussed with Wata some time ago. Details here,
http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=19635

EDIT: The sticky thread has been created,
http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=19675
I'll spend the next few days populating it.

May 3rd 2013: IP banned user Dark Knight Gafgar, AKA "Yorik" for attempting action that could have led to the closure of TFF. In addition to the above ban-worthy offence he involved other boards in the business of TFF, and tried to drag spork, who has been nothing but a class act, into our shit by sending him a message asking that retributive action be taken against administrators and moderators or the forum as a whole for specious and bad reasons.

Some choice excerpts*:

"The Ero-Sennin" - has now begun causing various problems, including posting softcore anime pornography (bear in mind that post has since been edited - it originally contained more explicit images)
Hawk returned briefly to re-open member registrations, which has apparently angered the administrators of New TFF, as they have continued their harassment and even commissioned spamming attacks
posting pornography (though admittedly that was later - partially - removed) and harassment are against the IcyBoards Terms of Service, and that New TFF is thus in breach of it's agreement with IcyBoards.
I will now be logging out of this account and abandoning it to ensure my own safety.
With this banning, the issue of Dark Knight Gafgar is considered closed. No appeal will be considered. Furthermore, I do not want to see a single post on old or new TFF that could be taken as gloating. I cannot account for the contents of personal messages, but I will be very disappointed in the conduct of my fellow TFFers if you DO compose harassing or unkind messages. If you feel that you cannot tell whether a post or message is gloating or cruel, kindly do not post at all. Warnings and temporary bans will be used to prevent unseemly retributive behavior, as this is not something to celebrate or become enraged by but rather a tragedy--Dark Knight Gafgar has been a member of the forum for a long time, and it is to our detriment that he decided to see the entirety of the nTFF experiment brought to heel.

Alas poor DKG. Why did he think I wouldn't follow up on this once spork asked me who this "Yorik" guy was and why he hated Shiro and Ero so much!?! Damn you for making me do this.

*While these quotes are being taken out of context, and indeed to make the author look as bad as I can, the full text of the PM is available on request to those interested. No line from the message has been edited.
