Come in to work feeling  :smiley:, it's a beautiful fall day.

CT: DMZ teacher, Mr. Kim's father passed away yesterday. ㅠㅠ

ME: That's too bad. I remember he mentioned that his father wasn't doing well.

CT: Yes, and tonight all the teachers will visit his house. Can you come?

Me: (I have no other plans. How long could this take, right?) Sure. Where is it?

CT: Good, we will take Ms. Jo's car. His house is in Gyeongju. (We're in Ulsan ~ 1hour away)

Me: (arghhhhhh) OK...

New mood:  >:( >:( >:(

Guess the mods don't want us voicing our dissatisfaction about the change anymore. Will doing so here in the ranting thread be met with warnings/mutes?

haha, yeah, really.

again, they probably didn't close it to try and aggrevate everyone, but stuff like that would make me even less inclined to pay

Would you like to be more specific as to who you are referring to?

Ok while a mod is here. Please, instead of policing and muting, can you head on over to the thread "I want to pay-but how". Seriously before you lose a whole lot more of us.

I literally cannot access my own content anymore because of the new paywall issue. I uploaded content more than a year ago (the Where's Wally game) and, because I changed schools, I no longer have it on my computer (I thought I did though). Now, I have to pay to access my own content! I don't have money on my Paypal account so I literally can't pay right now (not that I should pay to access my own things o.O).

Did a google search and found an old thread.  He doesn't appear to be banned?  Profile looks normal.

Maximmm is over at the Spam site now.  He said he can no longer access waygook because his ip addresses have been banned.

I'm not sure what a banned profile looks like. According to "Jejujohn77-not-weigookin74" weigookin74 was blocked (banned?) and his profile looks the same as maximmm's...

Hmm.  I guess I thought it would resemble a deleted account where the name would be bolded but unable to be clicked on?  Perhaps the IP addresses have been banned like HabsFanInKorea said.

Pretty sure he's talking about Davey closing the complaining thread. Is a bit frustrating when earlier in the day he said we were waiting on Arsalan but that the conversation could continue.

Sure, I'll be as specific as I can be: Whichever mods have locked every thread about the paywall.

I've always thought the over modding is done by that mod.

maximmm was banned, fyi. Banned accounts look the same as active ones. The user just can't log in.

Sorry but I will try my best to help.

Oh I guess the thread got too repetitive in a negative way. There seemed to be less discourse and more flaming at that point if I were to guess his reasons.

Well you mentioned users getting warned/muted for expressing their dissatisfaction. So I was thinking more along the lines of that. You may not see the post they were warned for, because if it was really insulting or profane, it was most likely removed. It's okay to be angry or upset and express that, but flaming is still unacceptable.

I wasn't really talking about anyone specific having already been warned or muted, I was more wondering whether that was something that could happen.

There have been at least two threads about the subject that were locked, one of which wasn't nearly as long as the more recent one. One thread being locked ostensibly "for flaming" can perhaps be excused, but two threads about the same topic being locked seemed to suggest that the topic was off-limits.

I'm generally of the mind that it's better to remove/warn inflammatory posts than to lock threads entirely, so conversation can be allowed to continue. When a topic is locked down not once but twice, it starts to look like inflammatory posts weren't the problem.
