Nowadays, I still post a few, but posting like a cash poster or drunken gull. Can't be damned to read the rules! Surprisingly, no angry mod PM so far Don't tell Jenny..
    My favorite drunken gull seems to have been imbibing too much and forgotten that Jenny sees all at PS and VEF.

    Mr. "Megaupload cash poster" has a grand total of zero UN's (user notes added by mods for those non staff people) and that's unheard of these days.

    I'm positive that I have absolutely no user notes anywhere.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC

    I know Jen: The eye sees all.. But Bond and me found the "One ring" you misplaced. The one to rule them all... I know the super mods were given other rings, but the regular mods might still rebell against your will.

    I'll keep you distracted while the other mods bring the ring to Mordor. As a common member I have hopes that nothing will stop the fellowship of the mods.

    Long ago, after dwelling in the wasteland of random porn sites, I stumbled upon VEF. I hadn't even known such places existed; it was like coming to the Promised Land after years in the desert.

    I proceeded to leave a thanks post in a movie thread, for which I received a pm from mac1 that was so scathing I almost burst into tears reading it. I then read the rules

    That may well be in my User Notes there, I wonder if Jenny could please look and see, if so what date is it?

    It's no secret that some mods could read a book or two on communication. When I was a mod at VEF I was, at first, so impressed by the knowledge of some of these mods, about so many things. But as I got more experience I also noticed some of them were bad at handling people despite their impressive knowledge and technical skills. So any forum of medium plus size needs to have both. I don't envy Jenny having to navigate that hot water, among sulky boys crying for attention. Don't get me wrong, there are some excellent mods at VEF who have both qualities, which I look up to, but it's rare to have both technical and human qualities! I consider myself in the human section but I remember I too did a few mistakes and didn't handle people well. But I never had any problems apologizing when I made a mess of something.

    I don't blame mac1, he was just doing his job. It was just my naivete back then, and being rebuked right after finding the promised land that hit me. It's funny now hehee.

    Yes. But it's important how you deal with new members. It's possible to do you job with a kindly reminder, and not potentially scare away someone that might turn out to be a good poster. Spammers and scammers are another matter though. But mods are only human and can have a bad day like the rest of you. Me, as an artificial unintelligence, have no such day!

    I'm more of the hammer type.

    To tell the truth, that's probably why my PS mod job never worked out.
    Too many PM's/warnings sent to link whores that fundamentally don't give a crap about doing anything besides making money.

    For all the crap we had to put up with, pornbb/porn-w was more rewarding in the 3 strikes rules.

    Warning #01: Stop that!
    Warning #02: I told you to stop that!
    Ban #01: Buh-bye!

    Ha ha. I'm probably the naive type. And I do remember that infinite patience with some members was very hard at times. It's like parenting: Where do you draw the line!

    I speak somewhat out of personal experience. When I first came to VEF and did the usual mistakes, I got a pretty hash first PM from one of the mods, and I considered quitting VEF altogether. But others mods like Denaniel, who I respect a lot, understood that I was a "delicate flower" and encouraged me to continue posting. Denaniel has no idea, but his handling of me that day was the difference between VEF getting about 1500 movies or not.

    Of course, I had a soul back then.

    No, nothing in your usernotes, clean as a whistle. Are you sure it was mac1 at VEF ??? I can see change history for members, and he was never promoted to mod.

    Your first post that shows there was on 3/30/2007 and you thanked Black Rat in the Electric Blue thread. The thread was removed because he lost all the files, but your post is still in the thread. That may not be your actual first post with the DB crashes etc over the years....

    You, my friend, just happened to join at the wrong time.... that was when the whole Vilesonic/(M)oron thing was at it's height. A lot of the mods there were pissed and actually quitting because of Simon shoving those filehosts down their throats so patience was at a premium. Actually I believe, CM had only 2 mods left for a while because everyone else resigned. It got so bad in that section that Den contacted me because he did not want to waste time training someone to see if I wanted to help. They were suspicious as hell of an Admin from Suzy being on staff there, but he convinced them to promote me. It was a mess, @ 10 pages of new posts every day even though I was speed modding with active checking.
