So what do you really expect us to do when flames like these start? Pat people in the back and encourage them to continue?

Ah the classic problem-with-authority poster. If you don't like how the forums are moderated then just don't visit/post there. Why do people feel the need to educate the moderators on the way the forums are moderated even though it's not going to make a difference?

Seeing the reactions from all the other people commenting after Jonatan's post it should be pretty obvious that Jonatan's post was not seen as pestering at all, thus this is not "okay" pestering, but no pestering. In case you disagree with that, fine with me, I just ask you to abstain from trying to start some annoying flamewar because of this.

Anyway as someone put it nicely:

I just can agree.

IMHO Jonatan's post was no pestering (and not only IMHO as you can see from the other posts on this topic, also from non-moderators), your post was just a lame attempt to flame Jonatan, because you dislike his attitude, so if you just wanted the moderators to say "Stop it Jonatan." then it's really a childish way to do so.

Anyway I'm sick of this discussion, if you dislike my opinion, fine. Just dislike it, but don't except that this way your behavior in this forum will be ignored by the moderators.

And after all if you think I'm talking total bullshit, I have no problem with it. I'm having a problem with all that childish flaming of users, because they think some other users break the rules and the moderators do not take any action. If you think something goes wrong I'm having no problem with a nice and friendly discussion about this. But I do have a major problem in just flaming the others by doing, what you think they are doing wrong, yourself.

IMHO that's not even an acceptable way of "proofing" that the moderators are biased. After all that lame flame attempt will make several people pissed (including yourself after the inevitable answers from the others).



So long text made short:

If you think we as moderators are biased, fine with me. I do no think this is the case btw..

If you think you need to show the world, that the world (or in this case this forum) is no real fair place by starting some flamewar, then I'm not fine with it and I ask you to abstain from doing so.

I know politics are a forbidden subject here, but there's a good political maxim that has sprung to mind for some reason: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

Or am I being too sly?

I'd like to add a little piece of wisdom myself. It's:

CHILL!

Oh, c'mon, so Jonatan was interested if there's any new stuff, the mule threw a bit of sarcasm into the mix, and now all this? It's not like asking about the status of the project pisses me off, since I'm doing this for free and I feel that people are taking this for granted (which I don't think). Please, ignore all the posts that came after Jonatan's questions (except for his posters), and add my answer:

Sure, I've done plenty of new posters, but I'm keeping them all for myself, and don't let you guys know about them, so that I can cover my whole apartment with them and laugh maniacally, while dancing around a burning pile of more newly made posters, playing the bongos.

They are... uhm... strap-on bongos. Which doesn't mean, that they're suitable for any sexual activities... I... think.

Getting rid of the halftone pattern - not so hard. Keeping the sharpness - bit more work. But yes, working on it;) Just been really sick and have to get through some real work first:P

I took the liberty to take on the Neverhood poster (just a quick clean-up though).
