While reading the forum faq thread i noticed a startling discover about the rules set in place by the mods:
1. Some people don’t listen to them and do as they please

yes and those people should be taken out and shot.


& 2. Their mods, they have more advantages than us average cr users and could wind up with a terrible case of god-envy

what advantages? they have to WORK to be here? they have to take the responsibility and kick spam bots and nuke bad accounts? they have to attempt to keep sanity in the forums and on the chats? yeah... 'cause those things are what creates "god envy"


So in the sprit of good nature I have decided to use my experience of being stepped on by other members and mods to help out those that have done everything the faq ask for and have obtained no result.
So while hoping this thread does not get locked,

IMO, it should, because your giving terrible advice to people. This being said as a user of CR, and as an adult.


WELCOME TO DJ_CATMIX'S TIP TO SURVIVING CR
tip 1. The most important tip is AVOID CONTACT WITH A MOD!!! These people are the gods to this site and one wrong step could leave you packing.

Yes, let's avoid the people who help keep sanity in this place, let's not listen to them and do whatever the fuck we want to.. 'cause THAT would be a good thing. They are VOLUNTEERS, they do not HAVE to do this. They do it because they want to HELP CR.. not because they have a vendetta against anyone, not because they want to have "god-like" powers. i mean, shit, this is a website... not life..


tip 2. When choosing out an avatar keep in mind that this is not a place to show off soft-core porn (not really sure why anyone click on it... god damnit)

Maybe soft core is their personality? ever think of that? when it goes beyond pg-13 then it's a problem, but if people want to have sexy avatars or show sexy pics on their profile, they are simply trying to show their personality, which is kind of the point of profiles and avatars. (see my avatar for a GRAND example.)


tip 3. There are other people on the site too, don’t make their lives miserable with a prank like this
http://www.crunchyroll.com/search?q=mauz&o=f

You don't even understand what that was all about. Mauz Banned a user, and the user was a moron and decided to spam the hell out of the forums. Which was actually a glitch that the user had discovered, and exploited. (this glitch has been fixed fyi)
It's called a spammer, and EVERYONE dislikes spammers, that's the WHOLE POINT OF HAVING MODS. it's their jobs to deal with that, if you recall, that night, the mods jumped on the spammer, and took care of the massive amounts of spam threads in about ten minutes. THEY did their jobs.


tip 4. When you have the ability to post make sure you’re not posting something that would arouse negative attention unless you’re into that sort of thing
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-95793/MILF.html?pg=0(this one seems familiar)
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-72747/Should-Women-Get-Back-In-The-Kitchen-.html

Perhaps the person is wanting to see the views of others, there actually ARE some racist and sexist people in the world, sadly.
Granted it would be nice to not have to see these types of threads, but in the view of equality, they have a right to post their thoughts the same as we do.


tip 5. Keep in mind that there are probably minors (if you yourself is also one) and others that may not find that your comment about “your favorite sexual position” very enlightening

This is actually (IMO) the IDEAL place for kids to ask questions about sex. If they ask me, i will not lie to them. I will be open and honest. The internet is a great place for anonyminity. They can ask the questions that they want answered about sex, or drugs or anything they don't feel comfortable asking to teachers or parents. Granted, with certain people they would get a biased view, but that's the same with life.


tip 6. Your typing does not have to be perfect (but some demand it) but it has to be legible enough for people to understand what you’re trying to say.

As long as it can be understood, i don't have a problem with it. when it's the funky: tYpInG lYk ThIs - that annoys the fuck out of me. it's difficult to look at, and it makes me wonder if the typist has some sort of obsessive complex that they feel the need to hit the shift button every two seconds.


Tip 7. READ!!!! Lots of people make the same mistake over and over again of misplacing topics and it’s up to the mods to put them in their place, this equals more work for the mods and more misery, and you know the saying, “misery loves company” THAT COMPANY IS GONNA BE US!!!

Yes it is rather annoying when people don't read at least the first few posts.
General guideline that seems to work: Read the first three posts, then the last three posts, and then you have a general idea where the thread is going.


Tip 8. The search engine is a load of ballics, seeing as how a different wording of an item does not show up (movie-film, book-novel, and drink-beverage-refreshment-fluid-hydration) soon some members are able to use it to report things, but for the most part your going to have to search them one at a time.

i've never had any problems finding things with the search feature. I just look up various words that could mean the same thing. People misspell things all the "tyme" perhaps english is not their first language, so when looking for a thread, sound it out as well.


Finally tip 9. Don’t use the blame game, blaming your cousin or other members for posting ignorant hate messages, just grab yourself up and take the mangled mess up English they throw at you.

People do that? i've never... oh wait.. yes i have.. NM, i agree with you on this one. Take responsibility for your own actions.
I'll admit, i've flamed, i've posted porn, (yaoi to be exact) and i've posted things that weren't pg-13 on purpose.
Sometimes under this name, sometimes not. I swear alot, i say things i shouldn't, but you know what? I did it.
see? am i getting in trouble for what i've said? no, this is the internet, who cares?

Don't post too much craps , and read the rules before posting a comment/topic and etc. Don't use vulgur . It will get you banned .

HOW THE HELL YOU DO THAT????
any way on a couple of tips i gave out you misunderstood(i think)
for the tip about not making other's lives miserible, i was refering to the spammer not the mod, since he made my life miserible when i had to search through all those FREAKIN PAGES looking for whatever the hell i was looking for back then.
for the avatar tip i ment to say dont follow the members who advertise porn on the site.
as for your bashing of me hating on the precious mods that do thier work, yeah i think i went a little overboard on that since with past sites i didnt have much respect for the admins after they decided to write over everyone's title to "COCK LOVING P***K" or "A*S HAT" and everyone that complained got thier avatar changed to a two girls one cup pic(scared the hell outta me).i think it was at an old ragnarok forum. but yeah the admins here are better and seem to be human.
by the way i really didnt expect anyone to write out lengthy summaries of how they feel about my tips

What? Interhect using the quotes properly? If that's what you're asking then it's simple BBC code. After you get to where you want to insert your comment, you type [ / q u o t e ] (lose the spaces fyi) and type what you want then when you're done typing your interjection, you simply type in [ q u o t e ]

Yes, i understand that, i was hoping you were meaning the spammer, but just in case you weren't i thought i woudl correct you, so that others wouldn't misunderstand.


for the avatar tip i ment to say dont follow the members who advertise porn on the site.

You SHOULD follow those avatars, and REPORT them!!! Help keep the site PG-13!
