The future of #omnimaga
« on: November 18, 2009, 08:15:34 pm »
As many of you noticed, #omnimaga was invite-only for the past hour or so, with the possibility of it remaining this way for good. The reason for this decision was due to a recurrent problem with an unusual amount of people causing trouble from mid-November to mid-March. this happens every year since the channel exists. The only difference with this year is that instead of some users from other channels causing trouble, it was our own ones. I will not name anyone, but some people might actually be aware of who. This this becomes out of control everytime of this year and during most of the winter, making the channel management and moderation impossible, this have made me wonder about the future of this #omnimaga.

Due to requests, I am not going to let the channel closed for now. However, until April 2010, anyone causing trouble in the channel, such as breaking our rules or attempt at starting fights, even if it involves just bringning private convos into public on purpose, will lead to an instant ban if the person was previously warned or banned about it. No more warnings if you were, before. November to April seems like a troll season, but unlike the 4 previous years the #omnimaga channel existed, we are no longer tolerating this. One year, it leaded to Omnimaga demise (if anyone remembers what happened to the old forums) and the year prior that, it also went pretty close. We will not tolerate any of that anymore and we will take earlier precautions before it goes out of hand.

Unless things won't go back to normal this Spring, our rules enforcements will be done this way afterward too. Our rules will be applied like usual on the forums, since we tend to not have as many problems over here. However, if we started to have any, we will do the same as on IRC. If things were to go from bad to worse, we could also go as far as making #omnimaga invite-only until April as well as disabling registrations completly on the forums (which we done, before). On top of that, if things were to get worse enough and not stop, we will resort to just letting #omnimaga open from April 1st to October 31st every year. Outside that period, we always seems to end up with more problems than anything else.

Also, on a less on-topic note, we would like to remind visitors that registering multiple accounts to yourself is against our forum rules and that bumping old threads for no reason can be considered as spam.

Sorry for the inconveniences this might have caused, and thanks for understanding and cooperating.

Hmmm, this I think is better then a total close down of the channel. I was wondering...how would I get invited if I was on my iPod because I can't do any of the/ commands unless I use mibbit, which really fails...

if i set someone +e, it remains this way until I remove that -e manually. basically the person will be able to join whenever he wants until his IP changes

Sweet :D
yeah, I've been getting into more arguement with my rents then normal...and I talk Tony gf everyday, and of course she takes priority over irc. Also my irc client for my iPod is really annoying and limiting...and production time for my play is coming up in a few weeks. I've also got wrestling every Monday, Wednesday, and most Fridays.

What is the episode about? Because first, I don't watch South Park much, since I don't have cable TV, and secondly, the website says it is restricted from viewing in my country due to copyrights restriction

Just go to www.southparkstudios.com and that site will redirect you to your countries site, then go to the episode guide > season 13> W.T.F.

It's about wrestling (they think it's gay) and about this: http://www.wwe.com/
