Edited by ShadowLunaCat (106208) on 2009-02-21 15:08:12 maybe something relevant? May we consider all particulars...??
^^ I don't think that's enough.


I guess I'm not alone in this: BigQ, you seem to have known quite a bit.. even though you've only put up some 23 comments onto this board.. is there something you.. um, aren't telling the Mods?


BigQ Comments: 23,


I just can't seem how intriguing that you have all this guff to say, and yet.. you have only posted 23 times... How interesting.


Also, I'm quite sure that the Mods are held to a very strict code when it comes to behavior on the site. They receive quite a bit of training, and, they do NOT just ban for any reason at all; they only ban when the TOS is violated, and the TOS is available, under EVERY SINGLE reply that each and every member makes on the board.

Additionally, I would think that if any of those members who were banned have any issue with this, I would think they'd bring it to the attention of the Owner of this Board, that would seem to be the logical thing to do.

In addition, I would think that the Mods would declare in what ways Dance.net was in "error", and then, try to clarify the truth of what's going on.

Thus, to be honest, I really don't see what your role is in all of this... nor what you are trying to say ... except to make already bad things worse.

I must admit, *I'M* starting to get a bad feeling about you.. and I don't even know you.. and I feel that I'm one of the more easy-going people on this board!


I believe that this link might clear up any mis-information:

www.dance.net . . .


And, additionally,


www.dance.net . . .


And,

"Rules
This is a basic overview of the rules at Dance.net; you can find more information at SITE RULES: A Definitive Guide to DDN by BalletGurl.

1. Please do not type in netspeak. What is netspeak? tHiS iS nEtSpEaK. How r u iz netspeak. Please do not use it in posts, replies, chat, anywhere. Dance.net is an international site, many people on here do not speak English as their first language. By typing in netspeak, you’re being lazy and rude towards those that don’t understand it.
2. Karma for photos is not allowed.
3. Do not use profanity at DDN. Please do not even use it if it is partially censored (using an asterisk instead of a letter or a symbol instead of a letter is still considered cursing.)
4. Do not advertise in the general forums.
5. Posting in all capital letters is considering shouting. Please be considerate and do not shout.
6. Sharing accounts is not permitted.****
7. Keep netiquette in mind. Do not call people names, don’t insult people, don’t threaten people, etc.
8. Please do not hijack threads. If you have something off-topic to say to someone, PM them.
9. Use descriptive titles.
10. Do not starfarm.
11. Don’t bump your thread up by saying “bump.” If people have something to say, they will say it. Give other people’s post time to be on the first page as well.
12. Do not contact members for personal information."

hi nicola

i do understand why some of these members have been banned, i also believe though that some did a very good job of hanging themselves over the last few weeks on certain posts and unfortunately dragging their schools name down :(

but the two im not sure about is the teachers, alot of people know fionaQ + maggieQ (and what they look like for the salute purposes) and i dont think any teacher would of let someone impersonate them on here for however long these accounts have been active so we must know surely that these two accounts are who they say they are??

i know im probabally missing something, but its been playing on my mind since i read this post :)

Duh. You're not a moderator, you don't know what they know, etc. etc. etc. dead horse.

I'm not going to lie: I really can't understand why people are arming themselves for battle over the banning of two members who, by your own admissions, haven't been active on DDN in some time lately anyway.

Chill already.

But when the other accounts link through them through IP addresses and other information we have we don't know who is using what account. How do we know if the other accounts are real people...what if it was a teacher making multiple accounts to hide behind? We aren't saying that is the story, but to clear EVERYTHING up then we needed all the related accounts we found to salute. If there is nothing to hide and someone wanted to be a member then why not salute to keep your account? We gave the teachers and owner the option to salute privately to moderators only, it wouldn't be posted etc. They chose not to do that. Most members would have done that to keep their accounts if they were interested in being members here.

I think the biggest problem is that access to a studio public computer has been abused many times and has hurt the credibility of the school and some of the people that attend there. We have banned other accounts previously for trolling that aren't mentioned here. This has been an on going problem. I can name 6 other accounts we have banned in the past that related to some of these that were recently banned. It finally became an issue that we needed to address.

That is what I thought.
Maybe the teachers are unaware of the misuse of the computer and may not even know they were requested to salute.

BTW I have my DD's dance studio passwords for their website and email even the teachers own hotmail. I set it all up for them as they do not have a computer at the studio. If I wanted to I could create havoc, lol.
Not that I'm saying this is the case in this school.

^I think the teachers have known about this in the past since in 2006 we almost did the same thing. They did know about having to salute prior to the bannings.

I can't imagine our studio computer being used by any of our students especially to access things on the internet. When so many trolling accounts come from one IP address and the logins and log offs aren't making sense we have to investigate it to keep order and protect the site.

Um because we have had this happen previously with a few of the accounts on here that we have banned. In fact one account we banned here has had 4 others at one time or another that we banned back in 2007.

^She thinks she does because someone told her another story and she believes that. We apparently don't really know how to do our jobs and after 10 years of running the site neither does the owner. We have absolutely no experience in fraudulent accounts therefore we should just believe the stories members make up. That will be a much better way of running the site (until a fraudulent account is attacking you personally...they I guess we are supposed to do something about it.)

I'm visualizing a computer at a dance studio.... and it's in the main office away from dancers. And each staff member who uses the computer must sign on individually to the system and also sign on individually to their OWN ddn account. I've never understood account sharing at all. Why does anyone even need to? Besides, who is mucking around on ddn at a dance studio - shouldn't you be DANCING or TEACHING at the dance studio? My studio is the ONLY place that I'm never on ddn. Outside of the studio, well, I'm on all the time! :)

Trust me - POT can NOT understand plain English. As a small child, she was kidnapped by Russian terrorists. When she was five, they moved her to Indonesia where she made a living by mending fishing nets and selling her body to Chinese sailors for a quarter. After a few years, she escaped to Vancouver, but by then, she had developed quite a meth habit. By the time she turned 15, she had 7 children - each with a different father. That's when I met her. That's when I made her my child bride. And I loved her 7 bastard children as if they were my own. I did. We had many more children over the years... Qui-qui, Ziti, Fellaysha... Puddin', Rolex, and Escalade... I loved all the childrens I had with POT. But she never did understand plain English.
