Lightning.. what the hell? In Recommend a Nintendo game you write "Metroid Prime for GameCube" when the first post states:
3DOKid wrote:
1 - Nothing to be posted on games like: Zelda, Mario or any top 20 Ninetndo game. Uncommon games only. If in doubt, ask. i.e. PM 3DOkid.

Lightning doesn't read posts before responding, or read rules for that matter and he posts things like starting "Your zombie apocalypse forum", "What would your epic final battle be like?" and "Post your schedule".

He has 65 posts and the majority of them, like the threads he starts, are not 3DO related. He annoys the hell out of people while others find his seemingly retardedness cute. So shall he be kicked (not banned) out?

No. He may post odd topics, and he seems to know little of 3DO, but he is doing no harm.

He hasn't posted isos. He hasn't dropped f-bombs. He hasn't begged for rare imports. He hasn't asked for prices only to flip goods on Ebay. He hasn't said Cyberdillo or Primal Rage are good. :lol:

Let him stay. Who knows, he may come around. And if not, maybe someone will finally get more ban requests than me (although I have a feeling the fact that I voted no may result in yet another) :wink:

I voted yes. He's young and irritating and likes twinkly vampires. The prosecution rests.

I answered No, because I don't understand what are you talking about =)

If he don't intrench forum rules, then he may stay. If you don't like him, then just ignore him.

I am in two minds - will he be educated by being kicked out or do we try to at least toilet train him.
Sadly I think he may be beyond re education

He's done nothing wrong except be different. Id like to know on what grounds one would think it is correct to ban in this situation. I'm just not seeing it.

What would our epic final battle be like to save Lightning from being kicked out? :wink:

If BryWI, Lemmi, & myself were forced to fight 3DOKid, 3DOExp (and others) in an epic final battle to save Lightning from a banning , how would we do it? I would be on the CD-i forum and drop an anonymous tip to Bas & Devin. After a long, fierce battle, it would look like Lightning would be banned and there would be a a lul in the fighting and 3DOKid & 3DOExp would say "let's face it, we are stronger than you!" and BryWI, Lemmi, and myself would say "yeah, well we're smarter" and the other half of the 3DO Zone mods would appear. 8)

I'm changing my mind. But he does irritate the hell out of me. And come the first rainy night, who will you want to be taking him out for walk? Muggins that's who. And he'll probably ruin the sofa, and no doubt ruin your shoes. Look, if I am putting him a black plastic bag and going off to the canal just after Christmas -- don't come running to me.

What are we, the "cool kids club" trying to keep exclusive?

He's harmless. A bit dumb, but harmless.

Okay, so i don't think were going to ban him - for a lot of the reasons mentioned.

However, this is supposed to be a 3DO forum, about the 3DO games console and its games, and its bits and bobs, all 3DO related.

Lightnings contribution so far has been:

- Girl Gamers.
- A forum for girl gamers.
- No idea who Trip Hawkins was.
- A political message about 9/11
- An "it's my birthday" post.

...and so on.

He seems confused between this forum and facebook. Now, I appreciate that quite a lot of posts aren't 3DO related, a lot (huge amount) from me too i know, but seriously...? He seems unapologetic too. Rather than dealing with a person, he gives me the feeling he is an asinine posting machine.

Okay so it's video games. What if this was a Ford forum, and he turned up asking what Ford was, looking for female members, not knowing who Henry T Ford was? Perhaps, if we all go off on to the Suffragette forums looking for men, and asking what a Suf-FRAG-ETTEY was, talking about Twilight, and then create a Asian-American against the War in Afghanistan thread?

My opinion is that there has to be a degree of quality control. That's why 3DO Experience is admin (...the crap I sprout, how I'm not banned I don't know :) )

I think this sums up however, how I feel. I like fun posts, I like stupid list posts, I love rants, I like different opinions, but there is a line. And that line is he clearly has no interest or understanding or desire to learn the subject at hand. And his ignorance towards all aspects just infuriates me.

I did the poll as kind of a joke after this:

Metroid hardly qualifies. :wink:

3DOKid wrote:
Yeah do it - but we run the risk of upsetting Lemmi. WHAT TO DO?

A vote?

Like an old movie, where we all stand round the gallows passing judgement.

Let's start a poll :)

I was just planning on sitting back and laughing and figured if there were a lot of votes against kicking him he'd be spared. Hence kicking him as opposed to banning him. I figure he might get the drift by getting kicked and he'd either straighten up or not come back. He has been told to make relevant posts by other members and he even said he would, but failed.

The thread is getting funny but I expected him to start posting in it making it even more fun.

Provided this forum software supports it, you could try simply kicking him out of the General forum. Then his only choice would be to talk about 3DO related items.. (Or--gasp!--the Jaguar ;)).

OMFG! Look at what Lightning just posted! He gets on, doesn't read anything, starts a thread about WINTER and leaves!!!!
He doesn't even notice the announcement that he might be booted out of here! The vote is currently 8 to 4!

I want to strangle this kid!!! I don't think he's 18, he can't be more than 11!

yeah I was going to actually mention getting him out of the general forum or closing it down for a week to see if he would break a rule then. If he annoys you though, dont read his posts in general forum or just dont read general forum at all.

General Forum says non 3do chat, so that leaves it a wide open discussion forum. But also I had some lulz when I saw his post for today. ha. I can see how he can be annoying to some. I just look the other way. I think he might be going for a ban at this point, but I still dont think it would be fair. But then again, not my decision.

Also, since there is a poll for the subject, doesn't that kind of admit that a banning/kicking/deleting might not be right. Kinda like an inner conscience asking, "Is this ok?". Just a thought. No harm intended on the thought.

Is this a joke? Really? Are my fellow members just pushing my buttons with a fake account to see how much I can take before I ban someone for non-bannable offenses? Did he really miss an announcement that was also a poll AND had his name on it?

I started the poll as a joke, but he's really getting to me and the vote is 2to1.

bitrate, matty, someone crack a joke before I hit that button!
