    > I just figured it wasn't beyond the pale to shitpost in what was effectively a shitpost thread, despite its origins.

    Granted.  Though some people were at various points trying to have a real conversation in that thread.

    And the rest of the shitposting was, in large part, users who (one of them, at least) wanted to filibuster the thread with their shitposts in order to prevent the original topic from coming up.  So while you aren't at fault for "malicious" shitposting, I'd say it wasn't a great idea to encourage it.

    But then why did you post 

  • Because I didn't know it was that bad at the time. :<

    What hitler thing?
  • Because you never know what you might see.
    The Hitler imagespam, presumably?

    The thread wherein I torture people by posting horrible porn featuring Hitler and people keep coming back to watch some reason. Sort of like a liveblog, only much less witty, and with Hitler porn.

    ^Yeah, that.
  • Edited for extra emphasis on the "wonderpost with restraint" parts. Wonderposting should be a way to facilitate the normal evolution of conversations in a thread, not as a way to impose a change of topic.

    Also, I haven't added this to the rule, but help make threads readable. Posting dozens of screen-sized images makes it very hard to follow the thread, so please link to high-resolution images. Horizontal scrolling in particular is a pain in the ass, so don't do it either with images or with unbroken text.

    I resized all of my posts to 480x640 to help prevent this. Is this referring to me too?
  • To you and everyone in general. You happened to have an image on this very page that horizontally scrolled, which I turned into a link, but what I'm more concerned about are the shitpost threads where everybody posts huge images, making the thread annoying to scroll through.
  • Glaives are better.
    This is kind of a retarded question, but is it acceptable to post a (polite) IJBM about getting banned on TV Tropes itself? I realize there's a lot of traffic between the two sites, and I don't want to antagonize anyone on either of them by kvetching about something that won't be changed.

    I just sort of want to say what happened and how I felt about it. If that's not alright, then I'm cool with that.

    Sorry for the trouble.
  • We've had several such threads already, so it should be fine.
  • Glaives are better.
    Oh, okay. Thanks, Dyre. :)
  • If you must eat a phoenix, boil it, do not roast it. This only encourages their mischievous habits.
    Note: I am not a mod, so... yeah. But this will probably be a good idea to follow regardless.

    Probably shouldn't need saying, but try not to use personal attacks against other members of the forum.

    And do not, under any circumstances, fill up an entire page- or more- with personal attacks.

    Attacking arguments are fine. But try not to attack other human beings, okay?

    Except none of these people are even WORTH being called human beings...so...does it count as a personal attack still?

    I think the nickname of this forum should be "an experiment in which angry people try to get along with each other".
  • I'm not angry, I just like telling people they're wrong.
  • If you must eat a phoenix, boil it, do not roast it. This only encourages their mischievous habits.
    I'm not angry, I'm just insane.
  • When in Turkey, ROCK THE FUCK OUT
    I'm not an angry person; I just play one on TV. 
  • ☭Unstoppable Sex Goddess☭
    I'm not angry, I am just a snide piece of hypocritical shit that feigns intelligence to use sarcasm and pseudowit, and disregard my own points to cover my ass and use irony to ego-stroke myself.
