TeamDBT Leaving - The Squirrel Got Him

Okay.... before the rumors start flying and we start hearing stories about TeamDBT (logan) getting mauled by a squirrel and having to be hostitalized, I am going to post the right story (as best I gather it.)

So it goes....... TeamDBT had been warned on a couple occationas for not being friendly / helpful to some members in a few forums. We, the moderators, are dedicated to not only having fun on the forums, but also to helping players... new and old. TeamDBT wasn't helping noobs in a positive manner so we warned him.

Then.... today TeamDBT deleted several posts posts by players in the lounge and gamers thread. Of course mass deletion this was not something we wanted... and since he had been warned earlier we (rather I) decided to put him on probation for a week. He is still a registered member, just not a mod for a week.

After telling TeamDBT he was on probation he told me he would rather no longer be a moderator.

I would like to say that we will miss logan on the forums and he was a great mod 95% of the time, but the incidents just started adding up and well things didn't work out.

Please feel free to post your comments to either Logan or I here regarding this matter.

Logan is on 1 week probation period, although I don't think he will be coming back... but if he does want to come bac k to his mod spot... it is open.

Hope this clears everything up.

Mark

Ifin a squirrel did get him I would assume it would have to be a three foot tall squirrel with somekind of laser blaster attached to its head.

Re: TeamDBT Leaving - The Squirrel Got Him

Cobra, id just like to commend you for doing such a great job at what you do. Im not saying that its a good thing that DBT is on probation I just that think its cool that you look out for your members and when you see someone being direspectfull to the new players you act on it and when a mod isnt doing his job the way he is wanted to, they dont get special treatment. Well just wanted to say good job on making a tough decision because DBT was well liked.

You guys do realize there wasn't a squirrel right?

And thanks Cj for the support on the matter. It was a very tough decision... but I weighted it out pretty well I think.

alotta people know his AIM, (me) but i doubt he wants a ton of people Iming him.
Im sorry to see him go, as you said cobra: helpful 95% of the time.
I assume he made this decision last night, and i was talkin to him on aim at the time. He was really cynical and *****y, he told me it was cuase he was mad at his mom. I think its stupid for him to make a decision while pissed. I think if he cools off, he may come back

Is it just me, or has there been alot of turmoil at PBF lately?

Sorry to hear about logan. When he first became a lounge mod, he really cleaned it up, but I do agree with deleting those games. You should make a sub-forum in the lounge just for those games, but make it so post count doesn't increase. Then, everyone will be happy.

Also, is his spot being filled with a new mod, or are people just going to shift the currents around?

I used to like Team DBT i even flamed a great member cause he almost forced him to loose his job. But it really made me upset that he deleted those games, he had no right. Andrew if you read this I am sorry, I shouldn't have flamed you like that. You were right in the first place.

Apology accepted.

And for future reference- I used to make a lot of paintball-related posts when I first joined, but I have been slowly drifting away from paintball, and plus the same things are posted over and over nowadays. Also, TeamDBT wouldn't have lost his job, it's up to the administration to decide that, and would have overruled me anyway. We had a personal issue that has since been resolved.

Re: TeamDBT Leaving - The Squirrel Got Him

Ok, to hear my side of the story...

First, I never deleted any "gamer threads". I deleted those forum games that in my oppinion were spam. All they did was increase post count. Yes, I participated in the first one in a while when I was bored, but seriously. People had like 50 posts on them. It was all spam. I don't think I have ever deleted a thread in the gamers forum by the way. Also I don't think its called mass deletion when I deleted about 7 threads that were all spam threads/closed threads.

Second, I was never told it was because I told some newbs "stupid kids, flatlines are only made for cockers and tippmans" about a month ago. Yes, Cobra did talk to me about it, but this time I was never told it was because of it.

He told me that it was because I told people to shorten their sigs(also the "threadocide"). In the mod forum I had menace bump a thread specifically saying that sigs could only have one pic in them. Responded to by cobra himself.

Thats my side of the story if any one wants to listen.
TeamDBT

P.S.-Also, if an admin takes away moderator powers from me for deleting spam and following a direct rule he stated to me then I don't want my moderator powers back. He also consulted the mod who is known as the "snitch" and he shouldn't of been trusted on these matters. I'm fine with the other mod he talked to about this. The point is he only asked one trusty mod and not even asking for my side of the story. Thats where it comes in where cobra said "gamer threads", which you can tell he didn't know the whole story if he doesn't even know what threads they were.

This whole situation sucks, i can sympathize with both of you.

For Cobra, i know the hard ship's of being an administrator, i have done this stuff before. I have had to make some decision's i didn't want to(i don't know if this is how you feel), i have had to revoke power's for bad decisions, even though the mod is great. Being an Admin is not an easy position.

For TeamDBT, although i am new, i have read your post's and enjoyed them. I thought you did a great job, it's to bad it all had to come down like this.

So did I loose like 20 posts because DBT deleted those gameing threads? Just wondering because I just noticed that and rembered this situation. Not that I am complaining or getting mad about it, Im just checking to see if thats it.
