Yes. We are reviewing whether to make it permanent.

And yes, we need a measure of chaos, and have had such to good degree before the arrival of Face.

lor... I'm not opposed to face's ban in the slightest (for reasons which, at the time he was banned, nobody but myself even knew)... but why wasn't there more "open" discussion during the buildup that ogion and you mentioned? This forum wouldn't have really tolerated secrecy when it was smaller... and the way it turned out (from any of our POVs) makes it look very, very INTPc-like. ...and nobody wants us to be very INTPc-like

Yes, I agree.

And that is a saddening thing.

Partially because we have reached a size where not all the members feel connected to one another, and partially from being simply fed up, the decision was made in secrecy. That is, we (mods and admins) discussed it.

To not air our personal opinions re. Face on the forum was, perhaps, not the best way to handle it. But are other members interested in hearing us bitch about someone who is causing a headache for the whole forum?

Perhaps indeed it would have been more helpful to just open up an open slather Face bashing thread? I mean that seriously. I wonder now if that gives other members a better sense of being connected and defending their forum from trolls.

I also think that to do have done so would have created more attention for Face, stolen more attention from worthwhile debates and wasted a lot of peoples time.

So, pros and cons on both sides.

We haven't had to deal with anyone like Face here before, who feeds from the negativity they create on such a forum-wide scale in such a manipulative manner. Much of the evidence is out here on the forum, not at all hidden. I think anyone examining Face's behaviour both here and in the irc channel would recognise them as a troll. A very clever troll, sailing just close enough to the wind to avoid out and out retaliation.

I don't want to see our place here go the way of so many internet hang outs, and am happy to hear anything and everything being questioned.

Keeping a great atmosphere here for participation is really important, thanks for pointing out the concern. I see it is legitimate.

As we find our way forward through trollish waters and whatever else awaits, I hope we can keep the integrity of INTPforum .

It would be interesting to see Face's take on this, do you think he/she would behave themselves if they knew that all further demeanor could potentially result in expulsion?
Perhaps Face is someone who has trouble forming relationships and resorts to attention getting tactics to overcome this...

Y'know, Ermine has 1,500+ posts, and she doesn't have a user title. Should this not be remedied?

@-Ermine
Is there anything your particularly proud of? Do you consider yourself strange in any way?
Loaded questions I know, but characterization requires some distinctive features.

...now there's a thread idea, do people characterize themselves to make socialising easier?

While we're on the topic, I would feel better if the community 'branded' me with an appropriate title... Whatever, that means(?)

EDIT: Hmmm The Destroyer has 50 more posts than I do, I feel ...?

Do you have any suggestions?
Would you like a title that would account for you faith? (Which is unique and fascinating for an INTP, btw.)
We may need your input to formulate an appropriate one.

I do not know what's appropriate, it should be accurate enough to give the new people some idea of my POV (fair Warning?),

However, you either love me or hate me I have gotten quite a range of PMs in that regard

Seducer of the Homeless suggested that the word YODIAC would be a fitting adjective...

I do not know which of the Tarot archetypes fits me...

I could be the Creator of Faith to counter balance Cog. but that is even beyond my conceit...

Whatever, someone comes up with, I just do not feel right in 'naming myself....

Actually after reading a thread on the history of this forum, I realized what was bothering me about this user title thing...

WHAT ROLE(S) HAVE I PLAYED?
WHAT ROLE DOES THE FORUM WISH ME TO PLAY?

No, I am a Counselor, I decided I did not want to spend anymore Time amongst the insane, handing out meds. It is much more rewarding to be a Rent-a-Friend, who simply tweaks a client that might have one (or two ) small problems that keeps them from living fulfilling, contented lives...

I prefer the phrase Rent-a-Friend.

Unless the protests are overwhelmingly convincing otherwise, you shall probably be designated such.

Ok - Cog can still refer to me, by the other.

Hmmm the challenge of being overwhelmingly convincing...
Nah! I'll save that ability for something important..

RENT-A-FRIEND it is then!

We have a new user title, "Resident Member" that kicks in at 1000 posts.

If you'd like something special then pm me with your desired custom title. (Or ask me to invent one. No promises. :p)

Better yet, invent ones for each other. What a thoughtful gift.
Do I have to of reached 1000 posts to have a custom title?

EDIT: wow, my post count is pathetic here. I really need to spend more time here.

I think, though it is most rude of me to break with tradition, that dear Cog has elected to, for a short while at least , undergo the joys of being like Melkor..How batty he is!

*hugs vengence* its okay man

except you didnt spell vengence right
I know, and neither did you. It is vengeance.

When I 1st wanted that user name the name was taken so I had to compromise, and come up with a unique spelling of the word. Plus if you look at the letters that make up the word there are several patterns in there.

For example

1) 3 consonants to a vowel: a consonant(its the 1st part of the word, so for it to fit the pattern the 2 before it would be cut off) a vowel, 3 consonants, a vowel, 3 consonants, a vowel.

2) Even N dispersion: 2 noon Ns 2 Ns, 2 non Ns, 2 Ns 2 non Ns 2 Ns

3) Ryme: each letter when said individually aside from the Ns ends in a long E sound. as 2 points out the Ns evenly distribute the sounds throughout the word.

That is probably much more then you ever needed to know about my name.

Now all you lowly mortals need do is sacrifice some virgins to me.

Be sure to cut their livers out whilst they live. I want their last moment of consciousness to see this eviceration. Any other procedure will displease me.

Cool title IB.

Hey lor can you change mine to something that is more focused upon supporting my own belief/ideas/schemes and less upon attacking the beliefs of others?

e.g.
Something about Transhumanism or the Singularity?
I trust you can come up with something good, "Destroyer of Faith" was great.
