i dunno what forums you refer to - maybe SOCNET? we all know that even if hood doesnt know it, some mp.net mods get off on being mods on SOCNET lite. Its a good thing the infraction system has reeled them in.
There has been no mandate from hood that I am aware of reeling anyone in. The infraction system which was created with our input is just a "shot across the bow" warning system. All of the previous ban powers are still in place. I can prove it to you if you'd like. I hope that clears it up for you.
They appear "more tolerant" because ofthe new "infraction" system.
read between the lines - Hood has taken away their instant ban-powers because some of them abused those powers and can't be trusted.
actually.... that's not quite true. We can still instantly ban if the situation warrants it.... and it had nothing to do with limiting our powers. Hood is fine with the job we are doing.... the infraction system came about because of mod suggestions.
After reading his posts I think he really knew what was going on here for a long time and had something very personal against DW58. Now he's gone. For good. Don't really know what did he want to achieve?
