I've now banned the following users:

Snoopy55, who was also known as RockyNarrowGauge, brandon and Woodstock.

vzbob, who was also known as Bunit.

I'll take a closer look if these guys had even more alter egos. If you suspect any user, please let me know and I'll check it out.

It seems Wolfwood found the small leak and chose to sink the ship.

Here is one more question which is of interest to me. Why haven't I, or anyone else that is involved in instigating and provoking the continuation of these arguements, been banned?

I take it that they can still view this forums?

I don't think so if the IP address was banned,Unless they use a proxy server, or don't have a static IP number.

Using multiple accounts is forbidden and that is the main cause of these bans. The fact that these people also used the multiple accounts to instigate other people is the second reason.

There are many of you who have used bad language and descriptions in your messages. I could ban the worst cases for a few days, or just give you guys some warnings. However, in many cases, this bad language was "caused" by the behaviour and posts of the already banned members, so I'm not really certain I should punish all of you - some of you merely reacted the way you did because there was no active moderator here (for which I apologise) and it was the only way you could vent your feelings.

(you see why it is bad to have done psychology studies? - you start to try to understand everyone's reasons for their behaviour)

However, I will shift through some of the discussion threads here and make my opinions known of the punishments as I come up with them on individual basis. If I find more members with multiple accounts, they'll be banned immediately.

However, the closing of this forum is still not off the agenda.

I see your reasoning and it looks good so I'll let you continue what you are doing without question.

Since these users were banned, can any posts from them also be removed? There seem to be a few of them lingering around here and not all of them make sense and quoting from posts that don't have the content etc...

One of the problems is that people have been fighting on these forums and have edited their posts afterward to hide the evidence of their misbehaviour or angering remarks. Of course, it is good that people practice self-censorship, but I'd hope that they'd do so _before_ they post their remarks and cause more bad blood between the members.

But, I hope this is all in the past now and everyone is happily playing the game again.

Since Atani was with us from the beginning and knows what is reverent and what does not make sense any more, why don't we ask him to do it.
He could be given the authority of moderator, and I hope he will stay around because we could use his technical knowledge.
The forum is still very much alive, there are new members popping up all the time and maps are being downloaded.
Think about it...!!!???

I don't mind helping clean up the remnants of the nearly constant fighting and will be around but I have not been playing or working on any of my tools for this game in a while.

This is not exactly a Rocket Science (Tho some of us think so!), you have handled it before just fine. All you would need is Management's OK, and the means to give you a free hand.

I am pretty sure that Falc has more or less decided to close the forums since I have not heard/seen anything further on the subject of closing or appointing a moderator. If someone arranges the permissions I have no problem starting to clean this forum up.
