Doesn't it strike everyone as odd?
This was just so necessary.
I don't care, at all, so I'm not accusing anyone of doing anything.. but if anyone were indeed pretending to be banned, I would guess they are doing it for attention. You know how to defeat that? Don't even look in their direction.
I don't understand what compels people to want to discuss this, it's only getting people wrapped up in the drama they claim to hate so much.
What? What have I missed?
Like I said, plain odd.
Thanks for taking the time to discuss this with me, even though you cant understand why people would want to.
Good riddance tbh.
One less person constantly moaning instead of doing something constructive is only a bonus.
Just waiting for the next outburst on vB, I'm gonna guess IPB is gonna be the Next Divine Software according to him.
Couldn''t agree more. There is always some drama with that guy wherever he goes. He has no one but himself to blame if he got banned.
....Whoa. They took the ban thing waaaaaaaaaaaayy too far if that's a moderator's action.... Name and shame by a moderator? Waaaaay too far.
I dunno if that's pretending... I wouldn't put my avatar as "Banned" and then "Drama Queen" as my status, or even put "SCAM by xf" either.
He isn't banned lol
*points at Mr. Kicks* How would you know?
Considering that post just got deleted, I'll assume he's fakin' it.
He admitted he put the avatar up himself, I think he just went into moderation(which probably should of been done along time ago lol ) and he see's moderation as being banned so he "refuses to visit the site"
Because he's lying.
Wait, Mark.B not contributing anything and whining? Say it ain't so...
Mark.b deletes his posts here when he gets his snout smacked or he loses an argument
Threads discussing actions that have been taken against users are not encouraged.
However on this occasion I will explain.
Mark B isn't banned. He was placed into moderation for reasons I think everyone who has followed his recent posts could understand.
Given his recent involvement with VB5 (an alpha tester I am informed), his constant posting in the pre-sales forum posting comments to discourage potential customers and agressive nature to other users were no longer welcomed.
We have no issue informing people that development is on hold, however posting comments to potential customers that "XenForo is dead" is simply unacceptable, and given his constant flip-flopping of allegiance from one company to another, we could only view it as a further attempt to engraciate himself with vBulletin and take customers away from XenForo.
Anyways, what he did after however was to limit who could view his profile, and changed his avatar to one which was light grey and had the word banned in it.
Jake and myself do not have the ability to ban users from the forum. For that we have to pass it upto KAM, and we have not done that with Mark at this time. *ammendium* Lawrences post below suggest adding an excessive number of warning points infact bans a user rather than simply moderating them... in which case I stand corrected. I will have to confirm that but was previously unaware if this was the case */ammendium*
Since then he has gone around and edited or deleted serveral of his posts... again... showing he was not banned and was simply placed in moderation.
Otherwise we consider the matter closed.
Sorry to reply to a closed thread. I had enough of Mark B, I gave him enough warning points to ban him and set it for 12months.
For any one who knows me, this is out of character, and I apologize to the community and our staff for doing so. Enough is enough.
