Forum:Have to bitch about this someplace
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
This is one of the best things about having two sites. We can go to the other one and complain about something on the other site and not get banned. We can complain about SPIKE all we want on the other site, at least in moderation except for a couple of times and not get in trouble here. That is very cool of SPIKE, it really is.
Which brings me to something I'm mad about and have to vent, and started doing it on the April Fool's page, so I'll vent here. Consider this a rant.
PuppyOnTheRadio won PotatoChopper of the Year here and on the other site. He won it fair and square. And then an admin, who shall remain both nameless and wants to eat my brain, apparently out-dicked SPIKE by taking away Puppy's win!!! He won it, I nommed him for it because nobody else was nommed and he deserved a Lifetime Achievement Award for tatochopping, and we don't have that here or there, and he won. Yay Puppy! He is our present Potatochopper of the Year (and earned it). But on the other site one admin out of all of them (I guess they all agree) pulled out an ancient rule that says each award winner has to get five votes. The rule was voted on, apparently, on a forum which wasn't named anything to do with the rule - the rule came up in discussion and was voted on - so it was an aside vote on a forum not related to it. But it was used to take away a yearly award. I didn't like it then and don't now, but was admonished by said admin not to be a troll, so I couldn't say any more there without being banned. But unless that admin is a bigger dick than Spike, he won't ban me for venting here. Phew. I needed that. Thanks for letting me rant folks. On ATS we have a rant forum, I've only used it twice I think. We're having Jesse Ventura in for a q and a tomorrow, maybe we should ask some famous comedians to do an "Ask Me Anything" forum here and on or with the other site, we can take turns hosting them.

- While I feel for Puppy, who is an excellent contributor with or without awards, and while I appreciate your frustration with the admin in question I'd really rather we didn't transform the forums into an "us and them" venting area. While we edit separate wikis the people on the fork can still edit here and can still read our content. I still get on perfectly amicably with a lot of them and would rather not end up with arguments between us over us allowing comments that would lead to bans on uncyc.co. I am locking this forum topic, Aleister has had his rant. I have sounded reasonable. It's a tremendous forum topic. -- 18:12, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
