Re: List of the self-deleted

It's very unusual that I disagree with Castro, so methinks this is not what he wants but may have been dictated to him from "above"?

Don't shoot the messenger peeps.

At least that's what I hope

Instant bans must be based on email addresses... Not too sure you could accurately insta-ban on any other criteria. Time to get a new email address ?

Re: List of the self-deleted

So you are confirming that this current presedence has been set and decided on by the mods rather than by the Admin and The Local. Correct?

Re: List of the self-deleted

There is a difference between reregistering as a new user and reinstating a deleted account.

I guess that the mods don't want to get into a long list of reconstructing deleted accounts just because people had a bit of a flounce.

If there has been a genuine error, such as Summerain, I am sure there is a way round it.

If someone created a new account with a new name after deleting their original one, and follows EF guidelines, I doubt if they would be in trouble.

Just a polite note, if you self-delete you should consider that a permenant move and any attempt to re-join EF will be met with an instant ban. The reason the self-delete option is there is to signal your non-agreement with the new T&C, therefore its a one way street.
But perhaps someone might be perfectly happy to accept the new T&Cs going forward, but unwilling to have them applied retrospectively to one's previous material/contributions/etc.

Which - to me, at least - actually sounds like a perfectly reasonable, rational thing for someone to want to do. And to not be able so to do, could very easily be (mis?)interpreted as a rather immature "corporate flounce" on the part of EF/The_Local "management".


TBH, the whole thing seems to have been one big ill-conceived, ill-considered, ill-communicated, ill-executed, b*llsup by The Local "management". Will this be different in future? I very much doubt it. Am I that bothered by that? No, not really; I've seen enough incompetent "management" in enough places over the years to just laugh, shrug and go off for a coffee. Will I flounce? No, but I will probably just wander off and spend a lot more time in other fora where there's hugely less dicking around by the "management"...

Re: List of the self-deleted

I think what most of us here are saying is that we do not disagree with the T&A or T&C or whatever they are ( I still havent seen it ) but the manner in which they were presented was a piece of sh*te.

no pre-notice ( ok, yes yes I know.. private company, yada yada )
and when the "tick box" was noticed and brought to attention it was dismissed more or less as nothing and we'll be informed about it at some point.

bad show chaps.

Seems to me that it is an interpretation of some mods really.
I'm putting my neck out here to defend the mods based on zero evidence.

My guess is that before the mails went out, one of them asked EB (or whoever) if members were allowed to re-register and were given a quick reply of "no", without really thinking about the EF flouncability factor.

Once that indication has been given then the mods have no choice until given the go-ahead to change by whoever it was that made the decision.

If it takes a day or so to sort out, then it's not the end of the world.



If it is just the mods being tight, then this might be the second time in my life that I've been wrong.


E.T.A.

Re: List of the self-deleted

That's what I would have thought but reading some comments from Mods here, they seem to be very set on deleting any new account applied for from same computer/whatever. I.e. they would never have the possibility to follow EF guidelines because they would be banned before they were even allowed to enter.

Fair enough, but you have until the 27th October before the new terms take effect, so why delete yourself and then re-join under the current/old terms ?

Re: List of the self-deleted

The silver lining to this cloud is that all new accounts will be heavily scrutinized to see whether they are duplicates - this will mean far fewer spam/troll accounts - probably.

because we've been told that we can't rejoin after deleting

are you now saying we can? will ED. Bob support that?

Re: List of the self-deleted

That's a non-issue, no? Since you have already told us you (the mods?) have made a precedence and no re-joining is allowed.

If he is aware of his postings, he can do it predate. He is still not violating anything.
If any problem, then ban him until after the 27th
