B&C has some rather draconian mods that have a horrible grasp of english. They enforce BS with an iron fist. I got banned for a post thanking the community and a message of hope during the korean missle crisis.
Not as bad As Dakka dakka mods who lie and encourage abuse and harrasment on anyone who has a negative critique of 40k. Such as not liking 8th edition. They allow harrasment. Nothing is worse then Dakka Dakkas regular forum members who activley abuse anyone that says anything they don't agree with. Just for fun. Mods encourge this. I got banned for proving a mod was Full of crap with evidence to back it. They allow harrasment to flourish then ban the victim if they ask for help.
Both have mods on a power trip. Abuse of power is a regular thing on both sites.
Unlike the mods here who seem stellar and responsable.
I honestly have made mostly good experiences on B&C. I actually prefer it over this forum for most things, if I'm allowed to say so.
If you have a problem with a mod, talk about it with an admin. Mods aren't perfect.
I'm pretty sure you didn't get banned on B&C for just that but as always when the one who got banned talks about it it's just part of the whole story and I have literally NO intention to talk more about it here or anywhere.
On another note, not related to anything you said Knives, one of the best things about B&C is that it simply feels like a big and active flgs with all the events they are doing every year.
Be it a conversion challenge, a kitbash challenge, a fiction writing challenge or the more common painting challenges. Best example would be the ETL where people vow for painting units for the imperial or chaos side and that way collect points to make their side win, so you 'win' even without being the best painter on the forum. As reward you are allowed to put the winner banner in your signature (most events there have such a reward or similar ones).
P.S. enough advertising, that wasn't even my intention anyway. Just making a point that it's a great forum with the occasional exceptions from members or mods like anywhere else on the internet that's not a trash community.
Actually I got perma banned for protesting my post being removed by the mod on BC. And yes that's the only reason. The mods treat you like crap unless agree with 100% everything they do. The mod gave me an ultimatum agree witb him or be banned. I choose to question his ethics on banning someone for not agreeing with a one sided narrative. The mod insisted my post violated the rules and forced me to say unless I was wrong. He would ban me. I tried talking to admins. They say talk to the mods. So yeah. I got banned for just that.
Warrior Fish. I think was the mod. Power tripping loser as far as I'm concerned. Dude gave me ultimatum unless I agreed with him. Needless to say you should never give someone an ultimatum over thanking the community during a global crisis. The mod was rude and lacked basic human respect. I called him on the draconian bs. So yeah. Perma banned for thanking the community. Well more accurately the mod was being a control freak with no respect for basic compassion. I told him off. Naturally. You don't give people ultimatums and treat them like dirt. I could understand if my post was politicle which is what He said violated the rules.
But it wasn't. And he not only would not listen or give basic respect he insisted that I capitulate admitting I was wrong when a basic grasp of english was his mistake. Because barley touching on current events is clearly politics and violates the rules. When the Intent and context of the message was about thanking the community, And had nothing to do with politics. Nor is news politics. I simply mentioned that world leaders are waving nukes at eachother, as a lead in to the
Post that I was grateful to the community for years of playing 40k. Nothing about the intent or contex of the post was anout politics. I double checked it with an english major to be sure. The mod was completely off his rocker. And really disrepectful dissmisve and rude.
I love BC community but sorry to say I don't take abuse from dictators well. Thus the perma ban. I miss BC actually. But I will never let anyone treat me like that.
You should never abuse your power as a mod or dictate an ultimatum to your forum members. And you should never lack basic human respect and compassion.
The rest of forum was okay sometimes great. BC is good just make sure to avoid fish.
