Forums: Index > Village Dump > I wish to complain about the recent issues with the BENSON forum.
Note: This topic has been unedited for 3439 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

First the admins kept moving crap topics into BENSON's sacred lands. No matter how much I and the other followers complained, the admins would not cease. I even suggested a compromise: Two seperate forums, one for BENSON, one for crap. And when I tried politely asking Famine to stop moving topics, I got nailed with the banstick. And now... all I can honestly say is what the fuck just happened. No admins seem to read our topics of complaint in BENSON's forum, so I'm putting this rant in the VD so the amdins who so cruelly wreck our lands can read it, along with the proles, blissfully unaware of the atrocities committed by their admins. That means don't move this to the BENSON forum, I want everyone to see this topic! --User:Nintendorulez 19:17, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Umm... I'm not sure if you've realized this yet, but uhh... Benson is lucky to even have forum at all, Benson is lucky he isn't indefinitely banned from the site. When you start making stupid demands like "keep the crap out of the Benson forum" you deserved to get banned.

I not making demands, I'm complaining, and requesting that the situation be fixed. The admins just keep antagonizing us BENSON followers, and this... this... name change was the last straw. --User:Nintendorulez 21:33, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Aww, you actually sound genuinely upset. I'm not quite sure I understand why though, and it does seem at the moment that Benson's "followers" are far more upset (or at least, more vocal about being upset) about all this crap than Benson himself. But yeah, I don't get why some admin hasn't just perma-banned him and put a stop to all this, cos it's just a bit boring now. I mean, I know it wouldn't be "fair", strictly speaking, but that's not really what uncyclopedia's about is it? --Sir Jam 22:14, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Because people like him, and he hasn't vandalized articles or actually done anything ban-worthy. --User:Nintendorulez 00:29, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
I thought Tompkins actually was a member of the League of BENSON himself. It says he is. And frankly BENSON has done some good here. Seriously, he has! He wrote a decent article and makes good pics. And he doesn't vandalize. To mention permabanning BENSON would be a great loss to Uncyclopedia. And I'm not saying that as a Bensonian, I'm saying that as an Uncyc contributor. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 02:35, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Doesn't it say right at the top of BENSON's forum that crap should go there? Also, what would the League of BENSON talk about if there was no crap for BENSON to be better than? --The Acceptable Thinking cap small Cainad Sacred Chao (Fnord) 00:53, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

We, the residents of the BENSON forum want that changed. The admins who never use it shouldn't dictate what does and doesn't go there. We want the crap placed elsewhere. And the crap can be elsewhere, and BENSON will still be better than it. --User:Nintendorulez 01:08, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
How do you figure that the administrators of the site should not determine what content is appropriate for the site and where it should go? The Benson forum is not a protected zone, nor is it even a right - it is a privilege, and it is tolerated. We are under no obligation to even provide Benson and his acolytes with a sounding board, remember that. I do see the funny side of the whole Benson thing, sure, but if you're going to attempt to turn this into another pointless Euroipods style crusade, I'm not going to debate it with you. I'm too busy, I spend too much time maintaining this site as it is, and if you make extra work for me I'll just take the simplest course of action. I don't speak for Famine or the other admins here, but I feel fairly sure that they feel pretty much the same way. Clear? -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 12:07, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

I'm just interested in the reason for the name change. BHOP is kinda cool i guess... --Uncyclon - Do we still link to BENSON? 07:56, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Who's BENSON? That guy that invented those lab burner things? I put a frog in one of those Benson burners one time. The heat made it swell up and bubble and get all huge and angry like The Inedible Hulk, and then it jumped on me and whupped my ass like a bad meringue. It was odd because it was a plastic frog and not a live one. Anyway, memes generally peak and then fade. That's the thing. That's the real message of Chuck Norris, Vietnam, existentialism, and marshmallow peeps. Relax, take some deep breaths, forget Benson, and write a good solid article for Uncyc.----OEJ 16:33, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Maybe if people didn't create cruft forum topics to begin with, this wouldn't be an issue. If it bothers you so much, Nin, nom the cruft forum articls for VFD. I don't see why forum articles should somehow be free from the deletion process if they really have no reason to exist. --Hrodulf 17:45, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Why do I get this nasty feeling that some admin somewhere in a funny mood is ready to seperate the entire forum into Crap and Benson in order to, wait for it and, kick Benson into the crap forum itself ? --Vosnul 18:19, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Now that is a great idea. Vosnul, you're a genius. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 18:34, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

If it weren't for the fact that all the forum pages and templates and stuff are protected, I could easily make a seperate forum for them myself. The wikiML isn't too complex. Hell, I already have made a seperate forum, hidden in my userpage, but it can't be linked to form other forums since they're protected. It's not much effort to code, so why not make another forum? Famine and such would be happy as the crap still wouldn't in the VD, and we BENSON followers would be happy as the crap wouldn't in the BENSON forum. I can't see why this proposal keeps being shot down, as it hurts no one. --User:Nintendorulez 16:08, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

I like my idea better. Why should we create a place for "crap." "Crap" shouldn't be here at all! Think about VFD or QVFD as a toilet that we should use to get rid of crap. Problem solved. --Hrodulf 18:22, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
How about a compromise with a link to your BENSON-exclusive forum from the top of [what is now called] BHOP? I've always thought it would be more suitable at User:Benson/forum, so it can actually be situated on Benson's hallowed userspace grounds, but it doesn't really matter where it is.

BENSON is "down" with "that" "G". Somebody do it for BENSON. Benson 19:10, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
Hypothetically, if I had created a new BENSON forum, I would move it to your userspace as you suggest. But such a thing clearly doesn't exist, as it we be something the cabal would silence if they found out about. So... let us never speak of this hidden underground ubar-secret BENSON forum 2.0 again. --User:Nintendorulez 21:21, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
On the contrary, I suppouse the cabal will be pleased to have it burried deep underground as you suggested. I was about to suggest you move it to a whole different wiki, but I guess a userspace sounds far enough.---Asteroid B612B612 (aka Rataube) - Ñ 23:34, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
Move what to a different wiki? Like I said, no such forum exists. --User:Nintendorulez 01:41, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
Indeed, better in his userspace than where the entire world has to see it. Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 23:40, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

I am sorry, but Benson only handles quality crap. Please to be inventing a new forum for poor quality crap called Poopoo Caca, or Trivial Shit Nobody Cares About, or the UnToliet, or I can't believe it's not Benson! --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 00:42, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Things are fine the way they are

"Benson's House of Pancakes" sounds really good, and Todd even made a nice, pro-BENSON image that BENSON Hhimself liked. I also appreciate Nin's efforts to create a new, all-BENSON, all the time forum in his userspace (and he's amazing with his ALL CAPS tricks). I think with these things, things will work out fine so long as we can continue to worship BENSON in both the BHOP forum AND Nin's forum. Although I would like to see Category:BENSON returned. And I even made an image for us to remember the good old days. Frankly, "what's in a name?" I say. It may be under a new name, but we can still praise Him in His glory the way we always have done. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 05:06, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

I think it may have been Famine who said it, or Codeine, or some other admin. They are all the same =P But the BENSON forum is a privledge and I don't think we should abuse it. The crap topics that do flood into the BENSON forum have never really bothered me. They just get pushed down to the bottom anyways. Plus powershot moving into the BENSON forum created an interesting war complete with death threats from all. And BHOP is a cool name. --Uncyclon - Do we still link to BENSON? 06:03, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah. I think this is over anyway. Us Bensonians have a new enemy, one that's actually fun to fight. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 16:11, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
I vote Fox Mulder for new Uncyclopedia meme. Fight the future! --Hrodulf 16:19, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
I think you should put this forum in the Benson/BENSON/BeNsoN/bEnSoN/bensoN forum. BENSON! It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 22:59, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Vote for new Meme

Fox Mulder

Score: 1
  • Nom and For I personally can't stand the X-Files, but he would be a good meme and we could have him run around trying to find the Cabal and complaining that euroipods is a conspiracy and such. --Hrodulf 16:19, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Against I would rather see a forum named UnToliet than Fox Mulder. All of the UnTurds can be flushed via the UnToilet. Not have Fox Mulder handle the UnTurds instead. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 03:36, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment I wasn't voting him for forum, I was voting him for meme. Fight the future! --Hrodulf 04:22, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
But it needs constant scrubbing, and NOBODY has cleaned the edit tab for months, it's disgusting.--Witt, Union leader of Union member UNion Entertain me* 05:13, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment The above comment was obviously misplaced here and should be in the UnToilet section below. It is polluting Mulder's holy lands. I will not fix it however, because Mulder would cry if he knew I messed with another user's comments on uncyclopedia. That and probably sneeze out something that could eat through pig iron. --Hrodulf 08:13, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
  • for Stupid show, great meme, nes par? Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 22:46, 3 December 2006 (UTC)


Score: +1
  • Nom and For Flush all of the UnTurds in the UnToliet and leave Benson handle the good quality crap. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 03:38, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
