    I don't know which one is responsible for the shenanigans a few hours ago because I was never PM'd before having 2 threads locked down/deleted within an hour. That's got to be some kind of record!

    I found an old 'F*** You 3' and posted something about Gary Vee trying to restart the speculator market for trading cards... seemed like a good conversation starter amongst collectors. Minutes later the thread was locked and not long after deleted from existence (the thread had other content which may/may not have been worthwhile to keep around from other members that had previously posted in it last year.) Seemed like a harmless topic to bring up but I guess one of the mods is a big Gary Vee fan? Did that really warrant deleting an entire thread?

    Started up another thread (The "It's Yucky & I Don't Like It" Thread.. figured someone had their panties in a know about the F-word) and was in the middle of a conversation with @IronPaw about some pretty serious and relevant stuff that he's going through at the moment and that thread was locked down within an hour.

    What is going on with the mods around here? Is it time for a refresh because these current guys are starting to act like the CCP or something with all of this unnecessary censorship.

    Looks like the lockdown and lack of box days has bred a bunch of fascist "sofubi collector" moderators who don't really collect sofubi anyway.. except for @animator he still collects toys at least so he's cool in my book. Can we get mods who aren't posers? Gimme a hell yeah

    I have a complaint I would like to put somewhere, so I guess I will leave it here (even though it doesn’t rly make sense to). People on eBay keep buying my toys and reselling them. It’s frustrating because they hit me up to ask for deals and then they make money off of my kindness/stupidity. I’ve already raised my eBay prices once to try and deter this from happening. I sold user toysfordayz a Guiron for 45 bux and he immediately relisted it for 149.99. Kind of a dick move, but whatever. What really pisses me off is he used my fucking pictures! I politely asked him to take down my pictures, which I hope he does. Either way, I have a lot more toys I’m going to get rid of so I guess I gotta stick to maybe only giving people here slick deals and stick to flipper prices on eBay.

    Water finds a way, of course, but we figured it would be clear that a locked down FU thread meant that, for the time being, we weren't interested in having an FU thread up and running around here. Not a good enough indication for some, I guess, or at least one...

    Bears mentioning, I think, that a good part of the reason that the last official one has remained closed is because its creator wrote us to request that we keep it that way, permanent style. Be cool of him to mention that here, but whatcha gonna do?

    Rather than call you out it public again, Glenn, we decided that moving your cries for attention to another part of the board - again, for the time being - was the best middle-of-the-night-in-America solution for what we saw as another potential grandstand and attack situation, given that most of us mods were sleeping at the time... but, of course, we realized that this would very probably just lead to another case of you grandstanding and attacking - see above - but whatcha gonna do?

    Water found a way. Again.

    To the collective you - you're always welcome to write to one of us orangecoats if you have a problem with something around here. That includes everyone in the collective, even those that presuppose.

    Happy Sunday, all!

    Eyyyy my bad Toothy (hope we’re still frenemies)! That was totally not intentional. Y’all, Toothy is correct. Myself, as well as the majority of the moderators thought that thread should be left 2 die as it had become exponentially negative/toxic. It was my hope that something slightly more positive would b born out of its wake. Perhaps a place we could all express what ails us without attacking each other. Hope this makes sense. Let’s put the unity back in community! Er whatever, some dumb shit

    Not sure how a thread titled 'Fuck you' could become more negative, but sure. As for toxic, i dont remember much of that. The occasional spat, perhaps.

    I miss the FU thread personally, I think we all need a place to vent during these shitty times. The fugly toys thread is awfully popular now that we have nowhere else to complain about things :lol:

    The only place I like to take my feelings is out on my property, mowing my lawn and drinking an icy cold beer. You don't need to create drama on a TOY COLLECTING forum of all places. Someone shut off the internet, please. Humanity doesn't need it.

    The only snowflake I see around around here is the one what started this thread, heh - keep your hate speech and defamatory put-downs to yourself, dear boardies, but lob as many conjugations of the ol' F-bomb as you feel necessary.

    Miss Maddie - by all means, start your own venting thread if you like! We'll see how it goes.

    "The only snowflake I see around around here is the one what started this thread, heh"
    immediately followed by
    "keep your hate speech and defamatory put-downs to yourself, dear boardies"

    That's my problem with this fucking place lately - and with you specifically David. For a moderator you sure do act like a precious **** sometimes. We need new mods - it's clear that @toothaction is and has been on a power-trip for some time now. He has had several conflicts with boards members in public and private and clearly doesn't understand the #1 rule that mods should be neutral. Even stooping to the lows of banning members (myself included) to protect his buddies. The guy has a happy trigger finger for sure with the countless number of threads being locked down. And now he has taken things to a new level of deleting entire threads from Skullbrain history. This guy is a problem. If anything David is a snowflake on a power-trip.. bad combo for sure.

    In all seriousness, it's time for the community to nominate some responsible and most importantly neutral mods for the boards. These guys have been at it for around 5 years? I can vaguely remember when the new group came into it. Some are doing a fair job but it's time to pass the torch.

    Nothing at all against Maddie - but this is a clear example of your skewed views and actions as a mod. I make a 'venting thread' (pure snowflake terminology there - didn't know Yucky was offensive in 2020) yesterday and it gets locked for no reason. Today not 24 hours later and there's an open invite for another member to create an identical thread. And "we'll see how it goes"... thanks Dad.

    Heavy handed and/or biased moderation has been an issue. No argument there.

    Now if this thread gets locked down or deleted out of sight (a new trend here) - it's further evidence of that. All it is now is a discussion of current problems the community has with how the board is run. Responsible mods would acknowledge that things could be better around here and work with the community to improve everybody's use of the forum.

    I mean, this could easily be like the KR boards and be totally non-existent!

    Maybe to balance things here, Glenn should just be appointed a mod, then we can have a 2 party mod system.

    Hey at least people would have way more freedom around here and would pretty much have to post a snuff film (Bemons excluded) to be banned that's for sure. But no I would not want any part of that.. Joe you're level-headed enough for the job. But I imagine you're in the same boat as not wanting any responsibility around this place.

    Actually I guess it takes a certain type of person to be a mod - and I imagine the choices are quite slim around here so for better or worse, we may be stuck with what we have. True OG mods like Brian and Josh are way too busy and more than likely got the shits with this place years ago but I know those guys would be way more level-headed and fair.

    So you want the mods to be just like you, always looking to pick a fight or *insert Micheal Jackson eating popcorn* sit back and laugh? I honestly enjoy the stuff you say, whether wrong or right. But this isn’t the Wild West or whatever would be the equivalent to when they tossed the prisoners onto pre-Australia, that would make sense to you. David is trying to be a mod on a board that although doesn’t reach reddit levels of trash, can still get heated. So for you to be constantly picking a fight with someone across the world, someone that does this on his own time, is petty. If you want drama, look out your window and do something else with your anger/snark.

    I feel that everything on here is self serving. Bringing me up in the initial post to prop an “important” conversation we were having on your thread but never bothering to follow up or check my thread about being harassed by the local police, reminds me of the people that post a pic of themselves doing nothing and hashtaging blm or something similar just to bring attention to themselves.

    Yep, you are right. I want no part of mod responsibilities.

    I was fully aware of your thread and even though I didn't PM you about it I was and have always been concerned about what you've been going through these past few weeks. This isn't about me - but as a result of the shoddy moderating going on around here I have become an example. The subject here are the mods and their heavy-handedness.

    There's a sofubi forum on Reddit. If anyone is frustrated with Skullbrain you should just go there and plant your flag: https://www.reddit.com/r/sofubi

    Ok then let’s keep it on them. If you were saying some of this stuff in person, people would probably tell you to piss off. At least here we can have a chat. But when it comes crashing down someone has to step in. David is doing the best he can with what extra time he has. To a certain degree things are allowed, but is it really worth pushing all of this just so someone who enjoys toys as well can come on here to get shit talked while also donating his time to help with the board?

    Nothing in this world works perfectly, this is as good as it gets and your not even paying for it.
