Nyrax account
« on: March 12, 2010, 11:28:44 pm »
Just so you know, Nyrax account was deleted, as it is against our rules to have duplicate ones. His former account, Radical_Pi, was renamed to Nyrax, e-mail updated, password reset, and post count merged.

To post again on Omnimaga, he will have to use his old account.

Quote
3: Only one account per person is allowed. Registering new accounts to evade anyone's ignored user list or to evade any ban will lead to the deletion of every account from that person and a permanent ban.

Considering he did it to fool people into thinking he's someone else, not due to a lost password, and that at the moment he did it he was aware of the rules about duplicate accounts, he is lucky to get off with a just a warning and a few minutes ban, cuz if you look at what that rule says...

Anyway welcome back Radical Pi but I kinda wish the return was done within the rules x.x

I seriously hope we don't get another Nerd83+/SuperGeek83+/Ideasfactory83+/UltaDick/SuperGoodDick invasion this summer...

I know you said no essay necessary on IM, but I think this situation is deserving of at last more than a simple "I'm sorry guys."

I am Radical Pi. I was once active in the community, quite a few years ago. I don't see many old faces around, but a few of you I do vaguely recognize. You probably don't want to hear my life story, so I'll just give the important parts. Once upon a time I was an Omnimaga staff member, with a featured project or two. But like so many people back then, I was plagued by ambition and overhype. Ultimately, I left the community in pursuit of other ambitions (which also ended up failing, but nevermind that).

Last Saturday, DJ Omni contacted me over AIM and told me about how the community (both Omnimaga and the TI programming community at large) were thriving. New projects that were actually finishing, the Nspire being hacked, even a new language for the 83+ series. I was intrigued, but still ashamed of my old non-committed self. So, I hatched a plan to come back, but under a new name: Nyrax.

When making this account I did see the board rule about there being only one account per person. But, since the rule mentioned that it was to prevent ban/ignore-list dodging, I figured I could take the risk in coming back this way. Obviously I was wrong to so blatantly disrespect this rule, but I was too thrilled by the fact that I was actually coming back to the first forum I ever really called my home forum. I tried to be as productive a new member as I could be, not only to inspire others, but myself as well.

And then I was found out. You can guess what happened between then and now.

By explaining myself above, I'm not looking for justification. I'm not looking for redemption. Not even sympathy. Just understanding, so you can judge my actions for yourselves.

I sincerely apologize for my misconduct. In retrospect, this really was a terrible idea from the beginning. At the very least, now I'm back and I've learned a valuable lesson from all this. Hopefully people will learn from my example, that disregarding the rules, even if you think it won't cause any harm, should never be done.

I had no idea that Omnimaga had recently been through a wave of incidents like this. Of course that one-account rule must have been there for a reason, but I never thought about what that reason might be.

I know that I was wrong to do this, and I'm glad I'm being offered this second chance. I swear, I won't mess it up.

The moral of the story? Obey the rules, never assume that you'll be the exception, deception is bad, all of the above; take your pick.
One of these days I'll get a sig I'm really proud of.

I think my rule 3 is written poorly x.x, cuz it really means duplicate accounts cannot be created at all. ban evading/ignore evade was more of an example (Nerd83 being one). One of these days I really need to rewrite some. x.x

Im glad you understand, though and thanks for apologizing.

Okay, I've heard of Radical Pi. :) Welcome back to Omnimaga. :D

Though what you did was wrong, I'm glad that it's behind us now and we can look forward to a new era of Nyrax projects. ;D
