For anyone that's not sure, log off the forums and browse for a thread you've posted in, or google for a thread you've posted in. If you can't find yourself, you're toast.

God I wish it was just a list like feature we could just throw people into whenever we felt like it.

No, the mods here don't have the ability to do that. George probably does, but the amount of work to do it would be something he'd look at and go "**** that, too much work".

What I want to know is, was that the only time this feature was used here? Or have some of of us at some time been in there for a week and just didn't pick up on it? You know like a little trip to the hole in jail for some indiscretion, only here you don't know it!

AFAIK, it has only been one person, and it happened only once, when 3DR went down. Because the feature requires a database rewrite or something, so when the server has hammered or whatever, and the database was having trouble, it wasn't much of a problem to do it then.

Just think, who was annoying in other gaming, but you haven't seen him post in a year.

I was convinced something like this happened to me awhile back. I know I made a lot of folks' personal ban list back in the day, as a result from my mind-numbingly retarded posts.

Anyway... Is this person even well known in the 3DR community?
Otherwise, there's no point in guessing.

What is interesting though is what the feature does. It's essentially a "global ignore". If someone is put in this feature, they can post and post and post all they want, and nobody sees their posts except themselves and the admins/moderators. Even the admin/mods don't see the full post unless they manually override. Admins are presented with a message that says "The Admin has decided that so and so will be quiet for awhile". You guys as regular users would never see that, but that's what admins/mods see when a person in Tachy posts something.

Anyway, the reason for me posting about all this is...

When I walked out the door at 3DR just about a year ago, there was one long standing user who was notorious for causing problems and posting abusive (but not exactly banworthy either) messages. I put that user in Tachy in May of 2009, and surprisingly enough they've NEVER figured out that not a single person has replied to any of their posts in a year, as nobody else has seen them. They still post here. I wonder if they have any idea who they are.

I mean, wouldn't you figure out in a year that not a single person has ever replied to you?
i seem to get a lot of replies, but are you saying this stops anyone from seeing their posts? what is the difference between that and just banning someone?

LOL, that is something. And in no posts does the user say.... 'why don't people reply to my posts?'

still confused on how you can throw someone in a category where no one will see their posts, and not just ban them, don't know the difference. But oh well........


idk maybe i'm in there, and there is some other guy who I can't see, and everyone is replying to him and he just happens to be saying almost the exact same thing as me so I think it's me they are replying to. Same exact posts, same exact topics, and I keep replying hahahaha
