I didn't see anything in the UCP or MCP to do this. PM me with the details and I will try and find someone to help.

EDIT:
Did some reading on the phpbb docs and it appears we do not have the "Delete My Account" mod installed in the UCP. All it would do though is delete your name from the member list and place "deleted user" as the user name on all your old posts. Is that what you wanted to accomplish?

If there is anything I can help with, or any concerns you have regarding this forum I would be happy to go to bat for you. Send me a PM if you don't wish to discuss this in the open forum.

But please, make sure you don't delete posts when deleting users. There are already many topics, which are hard to understand, because one member's posts were deleted with his account.

Why is censorship ok for some people and not others? That doesn't sound very egalitarian, modern, UNIXy etc. ;)

Sorry, bluecode.

I am not here very often, especially the last week due to illness. Getting to your PM now.

You keep on using these fancy words. Now I have to go look up reactionism :lol:

Nekochan Vandalized

bluecode apparently felt that nekochan.net's policy of not allowing members to buy/sell/trade commercial software was an affront to his right to do as he pleased.

While we do prohibit commercial software sales, we otherwise allowed bluecode pretty much free rein in the content of his posts - so much so that we even allowed him to censor himself. He elected to open each of the posts he'd made and remove the original content, then use the empty space to vandalize the threads those posts were in.

If his desire was to force the removal of his posts, he got his wish. I've deleted all of his historical posts to remove the graffiti he left behind.

Wow, that was... childish...

Many other forums have the same rules for the same reasons - if you're seen as facilitating a breach of copyright by allowing the sale/trade of unlicensed software the forum owner gets the nasty-grams from lawyers, some of which can be rather expensive even if you act in good faith.

Oh well..

I went to some length to explain that to him in PM's. Unfortunately, what we see here is now the result of his quixotic quest to fight the powah.

Not to be contrapuntal but in my opinion Bluecode did not violate forum rules. Asking about the availability of software is not the same as asking to buy commercial software from someone/something who is/are not authorized by the software's copyright holder to sell it. Which, by the way, is how the forum rule should be worded...

Don't think anybody said bluecode violated the no-commercial-software rule, though I did mention that he apparently wasn't too happy with it.

If you're talking about the same thread that seemed to have set bluecode off, considering that the OP there posted in the "Hardware Wanted" forum:
Hi there, looking for a C++ Compiler for IRIX 5.3. If possible with a permanent license.
I think his intent was fairly transparent - the OP in that thread wanted / was asking for a C++ Compiler for IRIX 5.3 with a permanent license.

You're obviously free to make that demand of your/our host, but please respect the fact that he's equally free to do what he thinks is in the best interests of nekochan.net.

I think he was upset because in your answer you asked him to respect forum rules, none of which he had broken.

Well that's one way to interpret it, I was going to point the OP to a vendor from whom a compiler could be purchased, but you had already locked the thread. It wasn't a completely eggregious violation of the rule or you would have either edited the post or deleted the thread, right?

Actually I was just being facetious; the rule is perfectly clear as it is... 8-)

I actually didn't delete the thread *because* of jan-jaap and bluecode's responses - in particular bluecode's query of "Is this explained anywhere?" Some newer users seem not to understand the reasoning behind the no-commercial-software rule and might not have seen previous explanations. Not deleting the thread allowed me to answer bluecode's question *and* offer the explanation anyone else not already familiar.


vishnu wrote:I think he was upset because in your answer you asked him to respect forum rules, none of which he had broken.
My request to please respect the forum rules was intended for bluecode and *anyone* who might also read it:
recondas wrote:One final note on the subject. Most of the nekochan moderators will edit (or delete) the first post made that doesn't comply with the commercial software rule. That's usually been more than sufficient to get the attention and willing cooperation of the offending poster. It'd be nice if that was always the case, but we recently had a member who reincarnated his deleted request for warez. As a result he's now permanently banned. Please respect the forum rules.
If bluecode found that request offensive he could have publicly voiced his concerns in another thread or even by PM. Which is pretty much what you've just done, without having been "censored by nekochan".
