With the support of the above disc members, the ban has been enacted.

The following PM has been sent to the user:

Noting that they've returned to the forums with backseat modding, and vehemence:

I reckon you shorten down some words as your "text" is currently 52 words over. It may seems little and merely extravagant to point out but people can be real bitches here. […]

I've admin-posted.

As well as a spam comment:

Ok lol

Best of luck to you, McB. It's been real.

DrDapperDrDapper and Professor PufferProfessor Puffer were recently brought to staff attention following an incident of malicious downvoting on the articles of FishishFishish.

Upon noticing this action, the users in question were called out via PMs, which resulted in the users rescinding most of the malicious downvotes.

As a result of the initial malicious downvoting, a short ban of one week has been implemented on the users in question, with me, aismallardaismallard, and LilyFlowerLilyFlower supporting.

Users were notified of the ban as follows:

Since they have not changed since their revoke, I am supporting a 48-hour ban.

Edit: I am also comfortable with a week long ban.

Based on the persistent disregard for feedback and the examples of others, it's time to escalate action to make clear the point which failed to land in December.

I would suggest a 1 week ban.

It's been a pleasure working alongside of you and getting to know you a bit over the years. You're gonna do great things, and I hope you still check in from time to time.

By my count, this user coldposted the same vodka bottle concept at least 4 times. They have one greenlight thread here, three people responded, didn't bother to respond further:

Coldposted it again.

At what point do we perform an action to signify ''stop coldposting this concept please?''

Even though not all of these are the same concept, this bumps up the total amount of coldposts to 8 times in a little over a month.

Take care and thank you for all that you've done! Wishing you a happy and bright future!

But the time flies, irretrievable.

Take care, and best of luck with IRL! Thank you so much for all you've done!

Godspeed, McB

It's been a pleasure, old friend. One day, we'll have more adventures of Ganymede and Ieva to write about.

Take care and good luck on your studies.

As some of you are already aware, I have a kinda super fucked IRL work/sleep schedule and am now back to taking classes at university now that in-person learning is available. The unfortunate result of this is that I simply do not have the time left to perform my usual staff duties to a level that I am comfortable with. As such, I'm stepping back and moving myself to reserve status. I honestly should have done this a few weeks ago, but that IRL do be kinda busy, ya know?

As for my positions:

  • I am leaving my Community Outreach VC position open for Whiteguard to fill or leave available as they see fit.
  • I am similarly leaving my MAST VC position open.
  • UncertaintyCrossing will become the sole Section Head of the Guide Update subteam of MAST.

On a more personal level, it has been an absolute pleasure to work alongside each and every one of you. I'll still hang in the discords and if the urge ever strikes me, I will probably write for the site again as well. Thank you for all the good times, friends. It's truly been an honor.

I would change the URL to be clickable, and possibly pointing directly to the "save a URL" page (

Ultimately it would just be a PM going along the following lines
