1) General Discussion / Re: Australia in fire, WHERE THE FUCK YOU LIVE SG?
« on: January 08, 2020, 12:26:47 PM »
seems to be the biggest fire of all time.  fires have always happened in california too but those are also worse than ever in recent years.  fires can be a thing that have always happened and yet also getting worse

Yeah it's definitely a bad year. Back-burning is the key.

Its actually a human problem that makes for really bad fires. It's because we go around putting them out. This lets the undergrowth build up to unnaturally high levels then when there's all that fuel and you have a hot dry summer there are bad fires.

The most intense fires are always in areas that haven't burnt in too many years.

As for the worst, how do you measure that? I vividly remember the Ash Wednesday Bushfires. I can still picture the massive wall of smoke I could see riding my bike home from school. It looked like a thunderstorm but it was the wrong color and in the wrong place.

75 people died that day. Choked or burned to death. 12 of the CFA volunteer firefighters who died were from our local fire brigade. They burned. The front changed so fast they had nowhere to go. Some of them were in the open, a couple of them tried to shelter under their truck. They would have known they were dead, but I guess it's just instinct to try to get away. There was only charred remains left.

I was 12 years old. They will always stick in my memory as being pretty bad, but if you are going by human lives then the Black Saturday Fires were worse. 173 people died that day, including probably the most well known TV news anchor in Victoria who burned in his home. That was pretty bad.

Are the current fires worse? I certainly hope not. They are a part of life here, but they are horrible, horrible things. Certainly they are now much better publicised. All of a sudden the whole world wants to use them to push their own agendas or ghoulishly fantasize about the ridiculously color-enhanced satellite images, but really they should all send donations to the Country Fire Authority or just fuck off and push their barrows elsewhere :blank:

1851 Black Thursday Bushfires


It looks like you are in some insane denial

Looked up the ash wednesday fire on wikipedia.  Across the whole fire season:
5,200 km2 (1,284,948 acres) burnt throughout the 1982/83 season.

Current fire:
Over 10,700,000 hectares (26,000,000 acres)

this is over 20x bigger dude.  and it's not over

I muted you only when you were posting insane stuff about admins burning Van's neighbor's field and pouring gasoline on your yard, and how God says War2 is evil, etc., because you seemed to be legitimately in crisis mentally.  Not to mention your elaborate conspiracy theory about me which was completely invented but again seemed like a scary sign regarding your well-being

This rule is adopted.

They made the poll but they never officially put the rule into place, and the way the screenshot was reported does not go by procedure. There is no SS on ss.war2.ru with /ping showing van[z] in the game so this ban should have never happened.

Okay that is true.

It was only for 24 hours thou and van is now unbanned. I would say from now on users must /ping to show everyone in the game in order to report a transgressions.

@tk[as] @Certified MENSA Genius Brain (smart) do you agree?

Makes sense

People get so offended over stupid s***.

Tk really is the PC principle from south park

Best of PC principal - YouTube

Van has made so many people cry from being the master of s*** talk that they have to make up rules that go against everything this game and forum stood for. Take the fucking Grunt in the top corner down now because this place no longer represents The Occult forums.

@Certified MENSA Genius Brain (smart)

Blid had no problem sharing this picture in the past with blatant van racism jokes. Now blid is the joke.

That picture rules.  I never said I have any problems handling Van's dumb comments, but the world has moved on from that sort of 90s shit talk and the community has had it with some of the things he says.  It was time for the rules to move on as well based on the responses we got.

Greetings friends.

There is a rule against abusive behavior on the server.  The rule was put to the community and approved by a vote.  Therefore the temp ban on Van was justified.  Warbux, I don't see how you could have missed all the discussion and voting on the subject! 

Agreed Chops. If we're going to do something, do it right.

That's how we're doing it

Rule has been proposed to the community, and will close tomorrow: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,5378.0.html
Then the new rule will be announced and policed.  If Van behaves halfway decent after that, he'll suffer no punishment.

I agree with EQ!
If it repeats, permanent ban.
I don't care of any trash talking, but you can't speak of wife, children, handicap, mother and bla bla bla!
yes, i agree with the distinction here between "you suck newb fuck off" type thing and talking about sick children or race or religion etc

11) Server.War2.ru / Re: Mousetopher Quit Warcraft 2? BAD NEWS IF SO!
« on: November 06, 2019, 12:50:14 PM »
I saw Mouse post "thats it, im quitting" in one of Burnt's meltdown threads but didn't realize it was going to be a full and final "quit."  It's looking that way, with iL now having to look at options for transferring hosting of this very forum, website, and so on.  A definite loss for the community. Mousetopher was a smart and level-headed voice, and gave a lot to this game.  :(

we can make a thread like, does the community support the following rule

"Civil behavior is expected from players on this server.  We will not hand down punishment lightly, but repeated complaints against a user can result in a temporary or permanent ban at the discretion of our administrators."

give it a few days, make voting public, it's a rule if it gets majority support, and as you can see it gives you broad latitude to handle things as you deem appropriate.  you then move forward from there and punish van the next time you get a complaint that shows something you consider inappropriately abusive

i think that's the best way to do it.  im not going to tell you what you CAN do, since youre the one thats in the server and not me.  if you want to just add the rule you want to the topic channel, and then boot van when you see him run afoul of it, you can do that too.  i just think the best way is to put the rule on the books first

I'm done with this shit. Next time van is seen using racial attacks towards others or just down right attacking/harassing others unprovoked I'm issuing a 3 day ban.

If anyone has issues they can discuss it with iL
I still think we should post a thread about it first and get community approval, and then write down how we're going to handle it, but if that's what you're going to do please make sure to change the main channel topic with an announcement of the policy, so everyone gets the message and is informed.

Please remind me of the opposite, but since TK became admin it has only become more n more negative words spreaded in the community.

It seems to be personal, first Burnt n now VAN.

ding ding ding we have a winner!

It's because van was witness of Blid logging in after the 00Jordanus game is why he is the target now. They never did answer to why they unfairly muted me when I broke no server rules. Oh ya because I caught the admin/his buddy abusing his own ladder.
I didn't log on right after that game and I have nothing to do with any of that bullshit.  I've proved it.  And you were not unfairly muted.  You were muted to try to help you remove yourself from a situation that was causing you extreme confusion and distress.  I unmuted you after I got a plea from ilyich who convinced me it was more helpful to let you continue than try to force any sort of mental health vacation.
