It may have come to your attention that Edward Kenway is no longer a member of the news group, and has in fact been banned.

 

I will not go into detail as to the actual reason he was banned, as we respect the privacy of our members, but I will say that his ban was because he broke a rule. He had previous examples of what would happen when he did what he did, and had been warned along with all members of the staff that doing it would result in not only a demotion but a ban as well.

 

I want to be absolutely clear that his ban has nothing to do with any personal disagreements he has had with the moderating team, other staff members, or even forum members. He was banned because he broke a rule.

 

He likely has his justifications, as everyone who does something wrong does, but some things cannot be forgiven or simply warned away. Edward Kenway's ban is as permanent as permanent bans go. He will no longer be allowed to have a profile on the site, so if you wish to continue to communicate with him you will have to do so elsewhere. 

 

Let this example be a lesson to future and present staff members. Edward Kenway has done a lot for this site, but even he was not above reproach for violating the rules. 

 

In regards to the now vacant News Team position, we are looking for new candidates to fill this gap. However, don't call us. We'll call you. A guaranteed way NOT to get on the News Team is to pester me or other moderators with hints that you'd like to be considered or even flat out asking for the position.

It's unfortunate, but sets an example to the rest of the community that we don't play favourites with members within the Staff and Moderator ranks.

If you break the rules, regardless of who you are, the punishment will be set accordingly. If you play by the rules, we're more than happy to have you around.

And this is why I party by myself. No-one gets offended that way.

Shame, this saddens me losing any member is quite sad.

 

But, rules are rules after all. Maybe people can learn from his mistake to refrain making one themselves.

Well this is quite a shock to hear about, however rules are rules. Even if he did bring us news for a long time, and was an active member, rules are rules. They are set up as guidelines, and newer members usually look up to the older staff members, staff and mods.

 

Thanks for the update TD.

Sad. I go away and come back to this. Well, I respect the forum rules, and if people break the rules, consequences have to follow.

That's a good way of handling it, though. I've been apart of multiple sites where staff members receive special protections and are allowed to do things that other members may get penalized for. Like, an Admin can insult and shout at a normal user, but if the user says anything back, he/she gets banned. That's more common than you think. I'm glad to see this forum doesn't have that nonsense, you treat all members with equal expectations and that's how it should be. There should be zero tolerance for double standards.


As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain, I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain. But that's just perfect for an Amish like me, you know I shun fancy things like electricity. At 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cows Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows... fool. And I've been milkin' and plowin' so long that even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone. I'm a man of the land, I'm into discipline. Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin. But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine, then tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699


We been spending most our lives, living in an Amish paradise! I've churned butter once or twice, living in an Amish paradise! It's hard work and sacrifice, living in an Amish paradise! We sell quilts at discount price, living in an Amish paradise!

In all honesty, I think rules were meant to be broken. (No offense)

Wow, that's low, you just took the Pepsi logo from my profile. I'M THE PEPSI GUY, NOT YOU! (jk, jk)

 

But on a serious note, rules exist to maintain order. If they were meant to be broken, why would anyone try to incorporate them? Kinda obvious.

It's an absolute shame to see him go, but I wish him the best in the future. His offense is shameful but it can be redeemed through hard work and dedication. This flourishing community will sorely miss him, in game nights, in its news section, and in the liveliest times of shoutboxing, but I hope this time away helps him regale his actions and recover his reputation.
