Posts are now getting locked because members are bumping their posts 'HOURS' too early. Shades of gunsnet ..... I'm a firm believer of rules, but I think ' hours' is a little crazy.

No, it wasn't my post either. Just a general observation of locked posts this morning.
Am I being too sensitive?

That is a troubling thought.


Maybe there is a technological solution. If so, it would be better than the spreading of these animosities.


this is just bad practice

So now we have to wait exactly 72 hours minimum instead of just 3 days on the calendar... Wow. That is some nit-picky shit there. I have seen some blatant bumping and some guys that sell 6 things and make 6 different posts for them, but locking a thread for a 71 hour bump is BS in my not so humble opinion.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 8:31:25 AM EDT
Are these being locked by the same moderator? Maybe a new moderator?

yes, I just don't get it. Hell, I just look at the days like Rob mentioned. I don't look at the hours at all.

This needs to be addressed NOW.

I was going to finally pony up some cash and get a membership but I think I'll wait and see how this plays out first.

Seems like Raptor22 is the mod doing most of the locking. Here is my question, is that 72 hrs from MY last post or the last post in the thread?

I don't know for sure, but I think they assigned a couple of new moderators and it has gone to one of the guys head. Next thing you know he will be locking threads down for being a minute off.

The same thing happened here on the AK side a year of two ago when some guy from the AR side wanted to be a moderator and he came over and locked every thread of the AK forum that did not deal with technical questions.

We need AK guys to moderate AK stuff and yeah IBTL

The EE mods and staff have NOTHING to do with activation of the team memberships.

Only one person controls that: Goatboy.

Where's the link? If the lock is only for being bumped at 71 hours, that's bullshit.

Its like the gun gestapo came aboard all of a sudden........most of it is trivial crap they should be to busy to mess with. What happened....did the AR faction take over....you know they have no sense of humor at all. Lets have our own AK EE moded by AK guys.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 9:25:08 AM EDT
I see the same infractions in the AR and Optics sections and I don't see them cracking down as much there, WTF?

Anyone else notice the ratio of mods on the AK EE to the number on the AR EE?I think they're fu%$ing with us. We Need Our Own Guys To Moderate THe AK EE!

I agree with you John, great info, easy going members, top notch mods who are AK guys first and mods second.

I can understand the AR side needing this. Their part of the EE is much busier than ours. Hell, 72 hours and a rifle is still on the first page. Bumping that a few hours early doesn't move anyone off of the front page.

Hello SHIVAN,I never see you posting on the AK side.What brings you over here now?

You mean there's an AR side of this board?
Go mention another gun platform on the 1911 board, talk about power tripping immaturity.

If a seller responds to an important question or ommision or inaccuracy in his post, he should NOT have to wait 72 hours. New viewers of his/her post have a right to the new info or corrections.

Edit the original post. There is no reason to carry on a conversation within your EE thread. That kind of banter is better kept in IM. The thing that bothers me is that there is a lot of posts being locked right now and I would hate to see the EE run by "BTT nazis". I am not saying that we are at that point yet, but I would hate to see this place turn into a facsimile of Goonsnet.

What's funny is I am all about supporting them about the 12 hour thing...

What I'm not about is just making shit up, like blaming EE mods for team membership upgrades being "late".

However, I'm sure it's all a grand conspiracy and I am really just here to further the plan by the "Man".

10,000% agreed. The 60 hour lock is BS, but I'm sure this could be handled better than calling out team members and mods....

Right?
