Wow this section is my home I guess now...
I seem to be the only one to post here. I guess that's a good thing, you guys don't have anything to really "rant" about, which is good. You're a better person than I am.
Anyway, I have spent a lot of my time on forums, most of my summer was spent on one forum that I have grown to enjoy. But I am planning on leaving the site if a few things don't change.
Keep in mind I have been a moderator on this site and I was voted the "Best Moderator" back in August.
Now I have personally figured out how fucked up this site has become. The owner cares more about the money he makes, and less about the community which is slowly dying.
This leads to people abusing this system.
Apparently this site is what I would like to call a "Pay 2 win". You usually pay for ranks to get more rep, username changes, etc. But did you know you can actually for a position of moderator?
Yes for $50 dollars you can pay for a moderator rank on a site of users who usually have to work hard and "prove themselves"
but it gets better.
For a measly $100 you can get "Head Moderator" Guess what they can do????? View the Post IP's of every single user.
every. single. one.
Yes you can get the IP addresses of users on a site based around ddosing / doxing.
You guys do understand how fucking stupid of an idea this is. This user then proceeded to start releasing info of members, which is where the 1 good admin finally stood up.
All good, right? Well now there are suspicions of this member being a new fucking Administrator by paying $500 dollars and there is some proof to show it.
This just baffles me that this shit can be pulled...
