And you're without a doubt the right person, with no personal bias whatsoever, to make that assessment. :rolleyes:

And a quick trip through your post history says otherwise, but that, like this discussion, is irrelevant to the thread at hand.

Jes you might as well ask decay out, because this is like the 2nd topic you guys have been buttin' heads against each other personally more than the actual discussion
But on topic: I like ivan's idea, especially since it usually takes about 9 seconds for a legitamate topic to turn into a retarded arguement with name-calling and stuff like that in that channel

LOL!
He's too young for me. I'm, what, 7 years older?

Anyway yes, Ivan's idea is sound - I've seen it in use on several other websites, and it seems to work well there.

Jes, aren't there pedophiles flocking to Zandronum to scrounge through its user base?

Yeah. Figured.

You might then consider acting your age and stop starting/responding to useless provokations, just saying.

As for the pedophiles, I'll be more than happy to ban them.

All in good fun.

And yes, pedophiles aren't cool at all.

Goes to show how this whole place runs on a fucked up double-standard heh
I believe you missed the point completely

save this ire for either:
1) another topic, voicing your concerns and explaining why you are concerned, with possibly evidence

2) or IRC. I know you've admitted you are incapable of ignoring drama, but you should try.
personally, I would really love to see a topic from you explaining all these "double-standards" you are seeing, as well as some solid evidence

all of this leads to my assertion that this is the sort of thing that is the problem. everyone wants educated discussion in #zandronum. fine. bring it there! the ops in that channel will never ban civilized discussion. as an op there, I encourage it! what WILL be banned is massive stupidity, racism, and other similar things

Hey, you can believe all you want. All I know, though, is that your lame ass missed the joke completely.

I must agree though that the average IQ of Zandronum seems to be actively progressing towards the minus infinity. Acting like five year olds may be fine on IRC, but not here, damnit. *looks up with disapproval*

[quote=Dynamo]and it just gives #zandronum a bad name overall[/quote]

Find me an IRC channel with a userbase equal or higher of that of #Zandronum which does NOT have trash talk about once per day. I goddamn dare you.

I actually agree with Zupoman for the most part. It would definitely help if that specific fella stopped imagining himself as some sort of troll paladin of light or something, but he DOES get the general idea right. If you would get your minds out of the box and think wider, stop hooking your thoughts to the word "troll" in about an instant after you see it, and care enough to understand the reason behind the words, you would actually see.

Particulary to Dynamo - you suggest that people move their trash talk to other channels. Definitely a good idea there! Definitely not something that should be forced, too. Forcing people to move their discussion to other channel is like telling "shut the fuck up nobody cares" - how much better that is than doing the so-called "trolling"? Do note that not only you tell that to the participants of the conversation - you also tell the observers that "you do not care about this, move along".

There is also the issue with participants of the conversation refusing to move in the other channel. And they are goddamn right to do so. Nobody has the right to enforce somebody to hear their conversation, trash or not. But everybody has the right to be heard. Trash or not.

There is also that issue where about half of #zandronum not only does not know how to create a channel, but how to even join them. But eh, I guess that's irrelevant.

Glad to see you finally caught on! Welcome to Zanzan, by the way!

If a mod is telling you to move your shitty conversations that contribute nothing to Zanzan, do yourself and others a favor and move your ass. Especially if your conversations revolve about things like "Would you have sex on a firetruck?" or some other dumb shit that I've seen and questions as to why its being asked...on #zandronum.

If they don't know, then show them. Help #zandronum out, we're trying to create a community for a old but great game where people can hold intelligent discussions of...well, uh... Zanzan.

There's a reason why a lot of people who actually contribute a lot of things refuse to go to #zandronum. It's like #zandronum is breeding an army of the internet's biggest retards rather than pushing Zanzan for the better.

Gotta agree with goliath; If you want to talk about "Would you have sex on a firetruck?" make a channel for it, if you wanna talk about furry stuff go to #furry, if you wanna talk about anything but zandronum, in #ZANDRONUM, go somewhere else with it

I haven't been around #z lately so I could be wrong, but I don't think z&/doom is big enough to make that a reality. A lot of times I bring up zandronum stuff, but just get directed somewhere rather than directions or discussion. Rename it to #port if it's just going to be used as a communal directory.

but lets get to the important topic, what makes a firetruck any less a venue

no, clearly the missing detail is "who"
I mean would you want to have sex with someone who's basically a human sphere
