Look forward to your race report m8, we'll be able to discuss it there, i'm off for some r&r, good night gentlemen
I'm going bed but I'm saying one thing, I banned Jake it wasn't a permanent ban but that was to be discussed.I thought i would just clear up some things that totally seem to be missed from both POV's.
First of all I would say that this discussion doesn't really fit into an open room such as here, but I am certain someone has started a personal chat to discuss it further. Looking at the whole case from the beginning, Jake was banned for saying some stupid things about the mods on twitter. Now, the supporters of Jake have said that this was photoshopped in order to make him look worse than JD, who may have said something(?). Simply due to this whole discussion being words against words, the discussion can't be kept going like this, as no one really knows what has actually happened, even though it seems unlikely that someone would spend time photoshopping Jake's comments.
But you, mods, should, instead of threatening everyone who goes against you, look at what actually happened and clarify it for Jake, who saw this just an hour before the actual race; a race I know he practiced more than 10 hours for. Due to the late break of the news, Jake and his friends obviously got frustrated and still had their adrenaline pumping when the lobby was created, simply due to the late break. So I don't see any reasons to start giving bans to whoever who tries to go against you, even though this is just as frustrating for you as it is for them. In addition to this, it is quite over the limit to start saying that Kieron deserves a ban for inviting people to the lobby. It was, obviously, not a good thing to invite Jake, but as I said; his adrenaline was pumping. Cause I know how much Kieron wants to help, and until now he has actually helped the COD by inviting people, hence his behavior today.
It is extremely important to listen to the drivers as well. They may sometimes have another version than the version you know.
My post just wanted to show the case from both sides. A ban was not inappropriate in any way, the circumstances were, however, discussable, but you couldn't predict the reaction, as you didn't know what they(Jake, Kieron) thought of the posts.I'm going bed but I'm saying one thing, I banned Jake it wasn't a permanent ban but that was to be discussed.
However the ban was for saying "the majority of mods are c&#ts on aor" on Twitter to Limitless and whoever else was watching, that I'm sorry is not acceptable.
Would it have been a different case if he'd simply named to mod who's annoyed I dunno, but that stuff doesn't slide and it shouldn't be accepted as the norm. I don't know what Jakes beaf is but he should have had enough about him to bring it up properly or at least contact someone else.
All the people that help run the league's do is try to run a well organised league to follow on from the ARL brand which brought everyone together initially, nobody is a dictator and every steward enquiry is looked at on its own merit.
If this has happened over a stewards enquiry all I can say is that they are discussed at length in some cases as the majority call is the end decision because opinions can be divided.
I'm hoping for a onesie and a massive roast dinner mate hahaAfter just 4 hours sleep and an airport pickup this morning i'm not in the best of shape, copious amounts of coffee don't help either, but i would like to say something to end my conversation to everyone here in F1.
Sometimes you can base your opinions and actions upon a situations when you're not privy to the full facts or completely fully understand the situation as a whole, All I ask is that you trust the team here we're certainly not ogres and we always have your best interests at heart, We'll always help and assist you the best way we possibly can either individually or as a group. From time to time there are situations that arise which need dealing with that are outside of the norm and have to be dealt with accordingly, I apologize we are not always in a position to fully explain these in details openly within a timely manner to everyone, but that said, we also don't want to air dirty laundry in public either, and sometimes a tough unpopular decision is made but necessary as an outcome but is fair to say not one person is makes any of these kinds of decisions and none of these are taken lightly.
I think its fair to say racing of any kind brings out true passion and you guys certainly have that in abundance , Over the course of the xmas break there may be a few changes to the way your lobbies are run in the future but this will just be inline with the way the other leagues operate so were all running to the "standard procedure" as it were. If you have any questions your first point of contact is always your league coordinator and normally the best man to ask as he's the guy on the front line as it we're. Being a league coordinator can be stressful at times especially with another 15 people in a lobby relying on him to get it right 100% of the time please be patient as your a new merged league and things take time to resettle after a turbulent time Just remember guys to listen to his instructions to help things run along smoothly but if there's anything that you feel you need to bring up with the team we're always here and just a pm away.
Hope you guys have a good christmas break and your on Santa's "nice list" and receive what your really hoping for as gifts on christmas day.
It is somewhere, the pic, but he said some things about the mods on twitter^^:depressed::depressed::wacky::wacky::wacky::wacky::wacky:Could someone link me to the detailed description of why Jake was banned? If there isn't one, then I think we all deserve a full comprehensive report of why Jake was banned with evidence and an explanation of why this deserves a ban and what rules were broken. Thanks.
You don't have to be given a detailed explanation, that's between Jake and the mod section.Could someone link me to the detailed description of why Jake was banned? If there isn't one, then I think we all deserve a full comprehensive report of why Jake was banned with evidence and an explanation of why this deserves a ban and what rules were broken. Thanks.
Have you got twitter mate?Could someone link me to the detailed description of why Jake was banned? If there isn't one, then I think we all deserve a full comprehensive report of why Jake was banned with evidence and an explanation of why this deserves a ban and what rules were broken. Thanks.
DoneFollow me @KieronBradleyy I'll Dm you
Alright thanks. I just thought that when a member gets banned the mods would release a statement or something. I'm new here so that's obviously not how things work around here.You don't have to be given a detailed explanation, that's between Jake and the mod section.
Ad for what he said, I've quoted him word for word above.
