Pic related, it's the thread where OP also cried abuse and got told by the users of the board he tried to claim. Capped because of the slide attempts that will no doubt follow this post.>>7227>Wow, still no Admin reply. Great site you got here, guys! Just ignore users calling you out for self-admitted admin abuse. Your cuckolded users will defend you, anyway!
I had work to do, so I didn't have time to compose a reply. When I replied to >>7200
I didn't have work to do and took the opportunity to check /operate/, so I did have time to compose a reply. Between those two points I was assigned work that I had to do because I have a job and am attempting to improve myself through higher education, as dubious as that may be in the current year. This website is operated by amateurs in their spare time, and they have existing real life engagements that prevent them from spending their lives F5ing a Mongolian powerpoint discussion forum.>Fuck off, I didn't do anything out of spite, I made a few OBVIOUS jokes.>spam shitty wordfilters and replace the existing board assets with ones expertly chosen to shit on /ggrevolt/>"'tis but a prank">Goddamn, Apparently endchan is even more no fun than 8chan.
/sp/ would disagree>By "Abuse" you mean that you just got asshurt over a fucking joke, and you think that gives the Admins the right to break their own rules.
My dude, I've tried coming up with imageboard rules that can be applied absolutely without requiring wiggle room to catch line-toeing tools abusing the letter of the rules to violate the spirit of the rules. It would make the BOs' lives easier, it would my life easier, and it would be insurance against hotpocketry for everyone involved. It doesn't work. Human nature means that someone will come along to abuse the loopholes (by, say, constantly refreshing boards.js and sending a claim email the millisecond the a dead board says "claimable" so you can fuck it up because someone who posted on there at some point rustled your jimmies) and then go quote shit out of context to tar the admins when they get caught out. The best I figure you can do is use rules to lay out where the boundaries are for users and what the users can expect from you in 90+% of cases, then when an exception comes along operate from the simple ethic of the community comes first.
Because boards exist for the community that posts on them, not
the other way around and certainly not at the whim of one autist, be he user or BO.
You fucked the community without even taking the time to buy them dinner first and the community voiced their disapproval. I placed the wishes of the posters over the whim of one autist who obviously wasn't even there before the board became claimable and put the BO they wanted back. (If you had waited a couple days before blowing your load I probably would have given you the benefit of the doubt and made an /operate/ thread to let the community discuss whether or not to revert the claim. By doing it immediately you made your intent obvious and went down like that furry who tried to turn /tech/ into his personal hugbox back in 2015.)
Oh, and you forgot to mention the massive webm thread full of good content that you deleted and then cried "spam" like fucking imkampfy when people noticed.
