I don't care so long as no one abuses their power.
One thing I want to say is stop publicly warning people within threads (I'm looking at you, ssj12). If you're going to warn someone, send them a pm, there's no need to derail threads (that PS3/GC thread is ruined now).
Crucial definitely had at least one thng right, there is absolutely NO NEED to warn people by posting a public message in a thread, there is a pm system especially for that.
that wasnt even the full warning, I went into more detail with my message, but thats besides the point. Public warnings can be a way to display whats wrong and should be used as a sign to fix the situation, not derail a thread. Plus many people here have called for reasons for bans/warnings. You are probably right, many people get nervious and testy when they are made public. The main purpose is still the same. it was meant to calm people down and talk like civilized men and women. Just like in politics there always has to be to form of visible sign that the mods actually do something more then ban people and shy away from trying to get things running smoothly without using much of our power. We prefer to use our power when direly needed and not spamming it around the forums like priest spams his message during Sunday mass.
