    *edit* Okay. I'm sorry for over reacting about my -rep and spamming the Off-Topic section. I have seen the error of my ways. (thanks to Wolverabid) I'll remember not to spam my useless dribble ever again. No, no one is paying me to say this, I'm serious. And I'm also here to apologies to the Moderators of the Hive for my rude comments. I'll keep my thoughts to myself from now on. *gulps some sake* I have to give a big "thank you" to Wolverabid and Rui for showing me the error of my ways and how to fix them. ^_^ peace from Pandaria.

    I believe if you read the news you would have seen that operator had become a moderator. . .


    Then why did you make a question such as the burning question? That has almost NOTHING to do with the Hive and wc3. I do understand that it IS in the off-topic forum but still. . .

    I also believe Mecheon has reasons for the actions he did and can defend them quite well.

    It's just rep. It's not like you've been banned. Rep is just a comment system.

    Alright, if you've gotten it off your chest and feel better now, lets head over to the New Smilies? thread and see if we can't do something productive that might perhaps reverse the neg rep situation.

    You can have fun, but dont be stupid since thats just rude to everyone who came here and made the site and supported it for more mature things than spam, simple as that.

    and rep is rep, not the end of the world if you get red, but you should be aware why rep is in the system and what it really means.

    I know plenty of forums where those types of threads lead to warnings, amongst other things. I know plenty of other forums where they lead to worse

    Yes, you are. It looks like you have only been negged once recently, is that such a big deal? Now if you had gotten negged more than once recently then you would be in deeper trouble, right now you are only starting to enter the wrong path:p

    Being an emo and saying stuff like that gets you negative reputation. Rules are ment to be obeyd. Imo this topic is pure spam even if its in the offtopic section. I'd neg rep you again but I'll have to spread my rep more first.

    And on further notice, stop getting things off your chest. We (I) dont care about it, you will only be breaking a rule, spamming, and that will result in more negative reputation.

    It's not, look at infuzions.

    And anyway, saying you "HATE" forum mod's really makes us more sympathetic.

    If mods and admins are going to deal out bad rep, please contact us with a pm saying why. Right now I have -4 and I have no idea how I got it. I am an administrator on another forum, and we do not do such things without notifying the person/offender.

    Sorry for the late reply. That threat was from wc3sear.ch and was moved over during the merger, so thats basically the wc3sear.ch rules you were reading. I have no idea if any of those rules carried over during the merger.

    I only Recently Recieved a reply from VG, and the rules were revised AFTER I made my original post.

    Okay Panda, forum mods do not abuse their power, its like saying police officers are abusing their power when they arrest someone for shooting someone else. There are rules and they have to be enforced, and moderators and admins have the job of enforcing these rules. What you posted was considered spam (beyond even the realm of off topic-ness) so you got negative reputation for what you did. Double posting is a stupid, stupid thing to do, because most of the time people just do it when their post hasen't been answered yet and they want someone to. Most of the time you get off with a warning, however this is up to the moderator to decide. If you accidently double posted, then i'm sure you can talk it over with a moderator, and the admins offer a policy that gets rid of your negative rep if you appeal to them and argue your case. All of these mods, such as deck and operator, have been at the hive A LOT longer then you, and they have earned the right to become moderators as they have proven themselves to be talented, responsible, mature individuals who can directly benefit the community by serving whichever part of the forums that they are assigned to. Myself and Deckboy, for example, do the resource section, along with others. We both volunteered for the position when Ralle asked, and we proved to him that our judgement in accepting/denying maps is the way it should be. As well, other moderators, like Operator, Chriz, Camels_Hump, etc have been signed on recently and in large numbers because of the amount the Hive has grown. Since the merger the Hive is a much busier place, and with more members you need more moderators to watch over the place. All of these individuals are quite talented at what they do, and they were chosen by the admins for said talents, and they have not let us down. Unless you are an anti-authoritarian (in which case you should leave and never return, because this place will only bring you misery) you need to learn to respect the rules and see the reason why you were punished for whatever it was that you did. If you cannot see this reason, even from negative rep comments etc, then by all means PM an admin and they will sort it out with you.

    You know you can delete your own post if you 'accidently' double post.

    Precisely, so if you are to lazy and/or retarded to find out how to do that, well then you deserve the negative rep anyway.

    Lunatechnick, if I am not wrong, was banned at -6 while certain members are below -10. How you mods determine when to ban an user?
