I'm unfamiliar with the Nick saga, so maybe that plays a part in why I don't quite understand what makes dupe accounts some unforgivable sin that automatically renders a user permabanned while (at least, I'd think) more harmful bannable offenses such as flaming and disruptive behavior aren't.

You don’t have to be familiar with Nick, because dupe accounts have consistently been treated as a banable offence since then.

It doesn’t matter if you’re just a bit of a prick and get told to take a week off or do something that warrants a six month ban. If you create a dupe account? You’re proving that you have no respect for the rules of the community. 

 

Combine that with the potential for cheating in contests and fantasy manipulation that dupes have? It being an instant ban makes a lot of sense. 

 

Anyway I’m not just talking to you here, but everyone who questions the “dupe accounts equals a ban” rule; 

We are open to changing the way we do things in many ways. Hell, the current standards and methods we use as moderators is largely influenced by a deluge of userbase suggestions and complaints over the last five-eight years. 

 

That said? The “dupe account equals instant ban” rule is not going anywhere and is not up for negotiation.

Long eight years have gone by since I joined this forum. I was wondering. Can we request deletion of our oldest posts and topics? I feel so ashamed of some of them.

Just do what I did and edit them all.

What's with the influx of spam accounts creating calendar events? Think we got a dozen or so last night alone.

Didn't even see that was happening. Thanks for the heads up! We'll try to keep a closer eye on that in the future.

Can we please get the "stadiums/arenas that need a renovation" thread restored to the Goldmine? It's been long enough since the events of the thread, and it kind of blows that such a fascinating board moment is inaccessible.

On this note, as a fairly new member of this board, thank you mods for adding all this new goodness to the Goldmine. It’s been truly enjoyable to read.

What’s going on with all the spambot accounts and threads? I thought I accidentally changed my language setting for the site to Chinese for a second.

So how do I request a name change? Cause years ago I did the poll thing and geesh that was a  disaster concept I feel. I’ve been a member for over ten years and I’d say I’m in good standing.

There used to be an option to request with the board operations team (Chris and someone else I think) but it got too convoluted.

 

I like you have been a member for more than 10 (prob more than 15) and not really an Astros fan anymore like i was back in high school, but ive learned to embrace this moniker here and everyone recognizes it.

Oh Duh... just found it.

 

It's kind of burried in there - it's the last of the pinned topics, and is never bolded.  I think it's easy to overlook... but maybe that's just me.

Sadly, I’m not aware of how to rearrange the pinned topics, otherwise that would be at the top of the list.

I unpinned a few old ones.  That should make it more obvious.
