Don's gone? Neutral Don's banned? Shocked

I was talking to him the other day and he didn't seem off at all. Well, I remember an editing request (involving him) being abit difficult but in a fun way. I asked for one thing but then changed my mind and asked for something different - Don did the first edit but on the second said:
DonSolo wrote:
Nope, sorry, you asked for my help and that's what you got. Wink


I didn't think he was being horrible - I assumed it was the classic FBTB "One Request Only" policy. To think that the big teddy bear would turn into a monster goes against everything I know of the man. I can only think of a few things that would see him get booted.

1. Nasty talk about Mods or members via PMs to another FBTB user.
2. Illegal forum activity.
3. Multiple Accounts.

I will keep my thoughts on the matter open because I don't judge anyone on here who appears to be a friend of mine. If he isn't coming back though (and this isn't the FBTB 2008 Halloween prank), then I will forever be puzzled as to why DonSolo would act so badly that he needed to be banned. Neutral

Question Question Question

I guess I should go draw up a list of who I think should replace him. Sad

Actually I have problems with believing all this. Next week's Halloween...
But if it is really true, we have to accept Ry's decision, I will miss Don nonetheless.

Wow... DonSolo's gone... Can't really say I'll miss him too much either. I've dealt with him a couple of times, and he always seemed overly serious or even slightly abrasive to me. I felt a few times it was my own fault, but it seems it might just have been his fault all along.

I have to say Andrew's suggestions for new mods are excellent: both Andi and Jake have proven to be consequently upstanding and outstanding members. But of course I have no idea if they evan want to be available for the position!

Ok, that makes it sound as though Aaron got banned as well, which again, is just silly.

Master, you better be on the case of this.

Can't say I've ever had a huge problem with Don. He'll be missed on my end.

Although I do think it's rather lame that the staff is being all hush-hush. Give us the truth once in a while.

My two cents.

Not trying to be an patootie here, just saying that it's a forum, and when a veteran/mod is banned maybe we should be given a reason?

I would be honored to get a Mod in this great forums.
But I would feel bad if it would be as replacement for Don.

First, I've gotta say thanks for the votes of confidence. Like Andi, I wouldn't say no, it'd be great to put something back into this community... Smile

If you knew him like I did, you wouldn't be as shocked. I can't think of one reason why he should become a MOD again, let alone be allowed to return as a member.

Being given responsibility like this recently in my WoW guild, I know what a tough choice it is for the current mods. However, as I only check the forums occasionally, and post to what I think could use my opinion, right or wrong, I sadly don't know anyone well enough to throw a vote in. For whoever gets the position though, congratulations.

I'm not sure a post announcing Don had been fired and banned and then telling everyone not to discuss it was such a good idea but I'd happily throw my support behind Jake, he's one of the nicest guys on the forums and he's from my mother land. Make the best of out of this opportunity eh?

Ha ha! Yes, investigating the mysteries of FBTB is my hobby. Cool I've found many secrets in the past and seen alot of strange things - including members pretending to be other people. With reference to what Andi said, next week is Halloween so perhaps Don will come back as a zombie? Neutral

I dunno. These days, you can't make a decision on what's real here. It's abit like The Matrix. Laughing Someone gets "banned" or some mysterious member appears and causes confusion by editing posts. Rolling Eyes

Oh look it's Austin...

And another thing, Don still has the [MOD] tag next to his name. It's neither gone, nor been replaced with the [VET] tag.
What's up with that?

I didnt remove the Mod title because I'm lazy. :p

Also, I made the post announcing his banning because people would have started to ask where he was, and the flickr pictures are out anyways.
We are not obligated to tell you the specifics behind this terrible turn of events. If I could, I would. I'm sorry if curiosity is killing you, but this is where we stand.

After what I've heard, read and seen - I assume Don is going to be taken to court? Hmm, sounds serious. Well, this is either a very horrible private dispute or the annual FBTB Prank.

I just got off the phone with Collin, and I want to go on record publicly as saying that when (if?) the proceedings are underway, I'm more than willing to provide character witness for Don. I already e-mailed him this along with my home phone, cell phone and home address, but I think it's important that I make it publicly known that I'm siding with Don on this issue.

Sorry, Ry-bear. We're good friends and all, but... Confused

This has to be a joke... right? Can someone fill me in with just the basics, as you have to see this is very strange to me. Perhaps I'm simply out of the loop?

If we are being serious here, than I would have to nominate Clashy, Jake or KungFused. Great, honest members, the lot of 'em.

Allright that's it. I've been convinced that Don hasn't been given a fair shake. We're going to trial. Details forthcoming.

Don has been unbanned, but will no longer be a mod pending a ruling in the trial.
