View Full Version : I'm getting singled out and I don't like it.

For the third time my signature, along with all of the text that went along with it, has been deleted. It gets replaced with the "Keep it under 40k" text as you can see on the bottom of the post.

Now, this wouldn't be a problem if everyone else had to abide by the 40k rule, but after getting stripped for the third time I did some investigating. More than half the people with sig pictures have them at over 40k, some by a great deal more. Am I getting singled out because I'm a bills fan? Looks like someone has it in for me.

I realize this isn't dolphin related, but it's site related, and it's not too fair. I'm not trying to stir up trouble. I am a member of this site just like anyone else is and I expect to be treated like so.

well this might be off topic but your Avatar is annoying as hell, and if your sig was like that i would ban you basically because you are speaking ill-will against the site...say what you want about people...but if your an avid member of the site and a poster..you dont need to have anything like that

Why are you worried about everyone else? You should read the TOS and worry about yourself.

We do the best we can and dont see everything, and we dont get around to everyone. And yes, we do take care of some phin fans' sigs when they get out of line. Of course you cant see that because they have already picked out another sig...you can only see and comment on the current violators. However, most of them do not continue to keep violating the TOS by putting sigs over 40k, like you are doing, which really just ticks us off.

On top of that, you are a bills fan. While there are other bills fans on this site, you stick out like a sore thumb amongst all of these dolphins fans. We are more likely to pick out TOS violators among Bills fans then dolphins fans. Sorry, but thats just how it seems to happen.

We are not "singling you out"....all you have to do is follow the rules, we are doing the same thing to you that we would do to anyone else, bills or dolphins fan. We just dont get to all of the violators.

Its his thing and he can do whatever he wants as long as it goes along with the TOS. Its his oppinion and he could post stuff, although i personally dont like it, that shows the dolphins in a negative way. But he should be able to put whatever he wants but try to keep it under 40 k bro.

BTW Byroan i love ur sig!!! I wish u could make one like that for me :D

That sounds fine and all, but it doesn't seem too hard to find violators if you are steadily looking for them, in my opinion. I know a mod has more to do than look at sigs all day, but it only takes one second, they are pretty easy to spot initially. I've opened up countless threads and have seen, like I said, a lot more than have of the pics to be over 40k.

If you stand by your statement of you "just don't get all the violators" then do you need extra help? I'd be more than willing to focus primarily on that if the mods are having trouble keeping up with it.

His opinion answered your question of why your sig kept getting deleted. If you keep going against the TOS of course the mods will be watching you like a hawk. You're not the only one it happens to and if you stop using sigs over 40k the mods might just stop deleting it.

No you are wrong. Most of us are Dolphin fans. This is a Dolphins sight.
Youre avatar ridicules this sight. Youre sig while I will admit whoever did it it is a work of art, But on a Dolphins sight it sticks out like a terd in a punchbowl.
Would I get away with a simular avatar and sig on a Bill's sight? I don't think so.
Many fans from other teams post here and are welcomed,But you are in someone elses house.

Also, not only was the pic that violated the size terms removed, all of the text that accompanied it was also removed. Seems to me like an "I'll show him" type of thing.

We're just fine thanks...we'll be looking to add eventually. However you could have 25 mods and they still would overlook stuff. That aside, there is still no excuse for you to be told multiple times to abide by our sig policy, only for you to disobey it. Heck, why violate again when you are being watched? Didn't you learn anything from Rafael Palmeiro?

We'll do our job, just worry about yourself and respect the house rules.

Do you admit that this is about the third or forth time you've broken the sig TOS?? If so, I fail to see the leg your standing on.

I know that you think we're unfair, that we have it out for you. But to quote my favorite movie, "You are not special. You are not a beautiful snowflake". There are many Dolfans on this site who've had their signature privileges permanently revoked. You're about to become the next.

I can't speak for other mods. But like the mod in your case, I really don't care about what's in the sig when I edit it. It's all code in a little box. And I just blow it out of there and move on. We don't purposefully go out looking for sig violations. It's just something you see or you don't see.

If we had it out for you, we would have permanently banned you, your sig and your avatar a long time ago. We wouldn't have put up with your antagonistic ways in the main forum and banished you forever.

Now, you tell me which of us is being fair and which of us is just being an *******.

I think the av is hilarious, and since it hasn't been an issue to the mods, it obviously doesn't violate the house rules.

But the childish petulance about the sig is of the sort that I see come up here once in a while; why does anyone feel that they should be above the rules? I don't get that.

Look at your Bills' fan brethren like Clumpy and Circling Wagons - they are respected and appreciated in this community because of their contribution in making the site better with their prescence, and because - like 98% of the other members here, they appreciate what we have here and follow the rules.

Bottom line, you can be one of the good guys, or you can be gone. Your choice. Given your participation to this point, I can say that we wouldn't miss you at all if you left.

Your choice.

The deal is that your full of it. You're sig was in violation (again), somebody caught it, and now we're "picking on you". :rolleyes:

80%?? Whatever bro. Obviously people put up violating sigs every day. Otherwise there'd be no need for a policy. But to insinuate that 8 of every 10 sigs are in violation.....and we purposely don't do anything bout it....is just pure BS. Grow up already.
