The Lounge - Exasperated

Post subject: Exasperated
I've never posted in this section but there's a need for reaction now.

I think it is past time to warn or ban *Robi* from the forum. These past months, he's been doing nothing but than swearing over and over again, ruining all of the trends he's been posting in, and above all, using scatologic expressions.

It is unbearable but also of no interest.
For instance, who cares about translating what's discussing on a spanish forum?
Why can't everybody behave like grown-up people instead of complaining with rude words?

Being moderator myself on another jarre forum, I suggest the moderators should -perhaps- be carefull at some kind of exasperation (to not say anger) I may not be the only one to feel if they want their forum to keep its dignity and its main function.

Kanta - Fri Apr 11, 2014 11:39 am

JB, I am in agreement with you. I have edited some of the language used in Robi's posts. He has been warned before but this was a very long time ago. Another warning will be placed and if ignored he will be banned.

The mods should take care of some users…
Just ban them…

No bans are going to take place?

So I assume this guy won't be banned?

Not good. This sounds NOT like the RMI.

What a bullshit.

Why are fans so stupid peoplel, who believe everething?

Maybe low on educatien.

Fans are mostely low educated and ugly people.

Nobody here have a good and attractive charisma. Most of the Jarre fans looks stupid and ugly. Typical for Jarre his fans.

I have managed for the most of the fans to track there down. And believe me, this forum is filled with the most ugly people ever,...

Sorry again for my negativity. But face it, it is the reality.


Jarre did it again, old fashion music. Nobody likes it.

Dr_Jones - Sat Feb 20, 2016 11:39 am

people have been banned for less.
Dr_Jones - Mon Feb 22, 2016 10:17 am

And? Is something going to be done about it?

I have requested to admin for flux to be removed/banned.

Dr_Jones - Thu Feb 25, 2016 11:17 am

the admins must be busy and haven't got time to ban the guy yet.

I'm sorry, but the admins on this site appear to be rather worthless (note, admins, not Kanta who should already own the site anyway). Sure, banning a ween with the creativity of a 4-year-old isn't actually worth anyone's time, but it's something that must be done (especially since I remember this site having rules of conduct) and the banning (of this one and whatever alternate nicks he has registered) would take like 0.5 seconds.

Kanta - Mon Apr 25, 2016 11:36 am

I will get in touch with admin for a ban.
Finaero - Sun Jul 17, 2016 11:08 am

So to recap:

Kubrick returns as funkygreenalien in November 2015, engaging in behaviour that would have got him banned from this forum due to breaking the rules. He is merely added to the "Reprimanded users" list: http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/warnings.php

funkygreenalien returns as flux, does the same thing, doesn't get banned until April 2016. No clue if he's actually banned, but he appears "disallow posting" on the aforementioned page. Yet he's able to log in just fine (which can't be done if you're actually banned).

Meanwhile, funkygreenalien actually has been unbanned the whole time. http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?p=198239

In other words, the administration of this forum (except for Kanta, who should have been the owner for 8 years already) is non-existent and ineffective. Even the poorest of subreddits have better control than this.

Dr_Jones - Thu Nov 17, 2016 12:30 am

Just ban him, then we're rid of that vermin.
Finaero - Thu Nov 17, 2016 7:16 am

It actually would have been faster to create a whole new Jarre forum in this time. :P
Adam - Thu Nov 17, 2016 1:46 pm

Why not give Kanta the ability to ban members ?
I run a forum using phpBB & all my moderators can ban people and have the option to remove all their posts in one go.
If this forum had at least 2 admins and 4 moderators who can ban members, which a forum of this size should have, then all new members could be subject to admin approval & people like this can be banned quickly.
Also they should consider upgrading to phpBB3, this forum uses version 2 which is obsolete, version 3 has some very good anti-bot plugins & the ability to report posts and members at the click of a button, and there is also a games arcade add-on with hundreds of free games !

Dr_Jones - Thu Nov 17, 2016 7:13 pm

I really haven't got a clue why there's still this outdated software on this server and why no-one ever thought of giving admin powers to more capable people.
Finaero - Fri Dec 02, 2016 10:04 am

Yeah, especially since our pest is back again:
http://www.zoolook.nl/for...p=199486#199486

Agreed with Dr_Jones: the forum software is so outdated that upgrading to a newer version of PHPBB would destroy the previous content (not that one should use PHPBB anymore to begin with), and the admin situation isn't going to change on this site (as seen in the past 12 months).

So the most obvious option would be to start a new forum, but who would really want to take all that effort (forum software, server upkeep etc.) for a new JMJ forum? After all, this site seems to require 0% attention from the admins, otherwise they'd actually be active, and that it doesn't appear to be a financial burden since otherwise they'd have pulled the plug years ago.

It is possible to upgrade from phpBB 2 to 3
https://www.phpbb.com/sup...g/upgradeguide/
Then if you wanted to upgrade to 3.1 you would have to first upgrade to 3.0

The only downside is the theme won't work & a new theme would have to be created from scratch which is very time consuming.
It can also be done offline using software called Wamp Server then if anything goes wrong the actual forum is not affected which is what I do when doing a major update then once everything is working as it should I upload the files & database to the server.

And now we have a paid shill/spambot :x

Seriously, Where are GeeJee and the other admins when you need them? And why is Kanta still not one of them?

Dominc - Tue Jan 03, 2017 4:23 am

Well GeeJee & Nico have been MIA over here for ages, they've probably forgot about this place.
Dr_Jones - Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:37 am

The domain and hosting for this site is still being paid though.

Well phpBB 3.2 has just been launched. https://www.phpbb.com/com...?f=14&t=2398141
This forum is like an old uncontrolled satellite that is drifting around in cyberspace ready to be knocked out by space junk.
It's incredible that it still works as good as it does. :)

Jote - Sat Jan 07, 2017 3:47 pm

So far it's being paid but when it suddenly stops... We have an incredible wealth of information here, it would be a damn shame if it would go to waste this way.
Dr_Jones - Mon Feb 06, 2017 7:52 am

OH COME ON! Christ on a bike, there's spammers again!
