Then, this entire situation could have been avoided, and Eclipse would still have his board mod. At least in theory. We don't know for sure, since it didn't happen.

In this scenario, he has a very good reason for being ticked off. People went and shit-posted the entire forum. This entire "Tony topic" thing, would not have been okay in the game, so why would you post it here? And as for the other mods that ignored it? They didn't encourage people to shitpost. Eclipse actually went into the game, and global announced like 3 times, ACTIVELY encouraging people to shitpost. It wasn't even subtle. When Tony asked if he could post his swiftxlatoma slashfic (yes, these were his exact words, slashfic, thus having its intention be clear). Eclipse blatantly told him to go for it.


1) To quote Jem:

I wasn't yet aware of Swift's 2 forum rules to enforce.


Stupidy or not, it was within rules at that point in time. If we were to strip people based on stupidity, you should have never had TM, Chico should have never had RM to begin with, Zeo should have never had TM, Celtic should have never had TM, and I can continue that list for another page.

Do I 100% agree with what Eclipse did? No. Was it within the rules at that time? Yes. Did he do anything he deserves to be stripped for? No.

2) Did you even read the last 4 posts before posting yours? Emotions are rarely ever a justification for using verbs. Him being ticked off doesn't justify anything. If I would be in power, and you were on the lower end of the staff food chain, would be it justifiable to agree for me to strip you if you did something what I do not agree with?

3)

Now when has that ever worked? Jem tried to reason in on the case with Chico's ban. Did it work?

@Laza

eclipse you had board mod to deal with this, and what you should have done was delete those threads, not add onto it. that's why your board mod was taken away


Read above.

My last remark will be this: eclipse exactly knew what he was doing. He also knew the consequences. He just didn't think swift would actually take actions against him. Now if he wants to pull a chico and uses swifts' words against himself, then that's his choice.

Well if Swift isn't going to take action in one circumstance, he shouldn't decide to in another. You either enforce the rules universally or don't have them at all.

Also:

-Posting pornography/borderline pornographic material
-Spamming
-Going out of his way to post personal information

You obviously haven't read this. By the standards given here (with Tony being one of the board's most active posters) and with Chico's forum ban being removed on this basis, then Eclipse did what he was supposed to do in not penalizing Tony for his post and, in addition to that, encouraging people to be more active posters posting what Swift claims he has no issue seeing on these forums.

Swift was biased as f*** in this situation and needs to get off his high horse, not fire people he has personal vendetta's against (coming from a guy who still to this day never understood why Eclipse was hired to begin with), fire people who don't actually contribute to this community (Sarah off the top of my head), and not hire people that anyone in this community will tell you aren't qualified for the job. Dyson Slinky's ok as a guy I suppose (don't know him too well), but I've seen him act without thinking things through first and I'm pretty sure he isn't even that active on these forums to begin with. What qualifies him to moderate them?

I'm done posting at this point outside of to respond to replies to this post. I've wasted enough time in this thread and clearly what we're all saying is going nowhere, especially since people who have no idea what actually happened keep trying to justify Swift's actions for whatever reason they deem prudent and Swift is just going to laugh off anything anyone says here.
