    You'll now get 30 posts BUT to reduce the suspense, I'll approve you as soon as I find that you're not a dumbass or being an assclown for no reason.

    Also if I happen to see you in other communities I visit and you appear to be decent, I will take that into consideration, possibly resulting in an even speedier approval. If you are being an idiot at other places... well I'll try to overlook it provided you don't fuck up here.

    Those who manage to hit their 30th post will receive further instructions to explicitly request approval, in case I missed you by accident.

    All pending approvals have been put back in trial phase with postcount reset. Here's your second chance. PA dodgers are allowed to come back if they still wish, but other banned folks aren't.

    Does this mean people like SGR and BobXP get a second chance?

    Becoming a priest, perhaps?
    I would assume so.

    I pray to god that bobxp doesn't return here. It's been so peaceful here without his obsessive whining. In fact, I'll be surprised if he does come back. I'm pretty sure he knows that quite a few people hate him.

    Do the pending approvals actually know that they are back in trial member mode? Do they each receive an e-mail about it or is it up to them to find out?

    Oh boy... here comes the wave of postiness. I just hope this new system isn't too lenient.

    Sorry, it doesn't apply to those who got approved, then demoted to Trial, then got stuck in PA. This is only for those who didn't ever make it.

    There's no email notification. If they still come here on a regular basis (like some do), they'd know.

    Wow, so I've been approved.. Thanks a lot, Simon ! =3
     
  11. Out of curiousity, what made you decide to make this change in rules, Simon? I mean, was there any special event that prompted you to, or did you just feel it was time for a change?

    EDIT: And... does this mean that people like DannyAndShadowTails and Black Squirrel have another thirty trial posts? :ph34r:

    I believe it does <shudder>

    Won't some of these PA to trial members finding themselves in the gallery of dumbasses be a bit of a shock though? They think that they will be hated and have no chance from the off.
     
  13. Ohh... good point. Now that I think about it, the sheer comedic value makes it all worth it. :evil:

    Most of the PA people who have appeared in the Gallery were stupid from the start. Danny as you can see, was a bonafide idiot from beginning to the end. Besides, I don't think Danny or any other PA people came here after they were denied approval, seeing as how they weren't allowed post. The only way they'll know about this is if they decide to pay the site a visit or if they're informed about it.

    Ah, yes. Syren was a PA dodger too. Two examples of times where they got better (even though Syren was approved ANYWAYS).

    1. That information is classified!
    2. Yes. Of course, nothing says I can't use the "ban" button when needed (e.g. spam).
    They'll just have to deal with the damaged reputation resulted from their own stupidity.
    "Wrong" is such a relative and subjective term. :P Tweaker/supershadow342 is an exception to the norm. Don't expect similar treatment for future PA dodgers.

    There was a funny story to this actually. Me and Q planned to do this to prove that the Trial Member system was slightly flawed. We figured I was home free once I got approved. I soon figured out otherwise of course. :P

    Beware of Simon Wai. He knows all, and has the massive penius. All are at his mercy when registering here. =P

    Obviously all systems have flaws. I'm aware of the flaws of the Trial Member system, and I find them to be acceptable.

    Those who don't like to go through it can just go somewhere else. Although there's virtually no difference when posting as a Trial Member or as a Member... it's all in your head. Let's face it, there's no guarantee one wouldn't be put back to Trial, or even banned, say, a week later. I find it funny and silly when people get so worked up over it.

    Me too, but that's looking back in retrospect. When I (as Soil) saw that I was a full member to these forums last may, I was relieved. I don't know why I was relieved to such an extent, but it made my day. Also, when I got put back into Trial Membership again (By the way, am I the only one who's been put back there and actually got re-verified?) I was bricking it. It's stupid, but I don't know why it's like this. Maybe it's the thought of missing out on all of you awesome crazy people. ;)
