Posted:For those who didn't get into the intros today.

http://www.nuskoolbreaks.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=55647&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0




If anyone has any issues on Monday (though I suspect not) please let me or another mod know.

UCOF and Ravehead were specifically targetted...just as a warning.

Other measures have been taken against these wankers, but I think everyone here should be made known that these people were planning to fill the bb with not-nice stupidity.

If they still do, don't fall for it.

On page 9 and 10 of the thread you will find a list of all the newbs from there...just for reference point.

(and on page 12 you'll find Jo and my responses to them! lol)

It was alot of fun for me too...no really...it was.



firenice spank glad you could enjoy it though.



Seriously though, I have to say it sucks. A couple of them have put some pretty interesting posts up but it isn't worth any issues it might cause, ya know?



And I can't take all the credit, I was handed a mysterious tip by a tall, dark and cloaked one. I was looking at all of it with curiousity, the tip kicked me into detective and then spanking mode. So thank you tall, dark and cloaked. wink

Posted:Hmmmmmm, the rather large amount of unimaginative names, most of which included 'poi' in them seemed unusual (poi_up_the_channel being the most obvious)

Never actually encounted the idea of 'Trolling' before... Just slightly beyond comprehension!

First I felt a bit of an idiot for being duped and leaping to their defence. But it did highlight the subject of how we treat the Newbies...(unless the whole 'Noobies Suck!' thing was after they were discovered?)

It is sad that this has kind of tainted the way we will approach a newbie now - with suspicion instead of open arms. But genuine newbies will STILL make the same mistakes so we should be careful not to immediate attack them because they don't know how to use the thread! By all means point them in the right direction but don't use the whole 'NOT AGAIN!!!!' tone of writing. Hell, even established members make the same mistakes! (Now THEY deserve a flogging with a donkey)

If we treat every newbie with suspicion, then they've succeeded in 'Disrupting the Community' as said in the wiki article you've put up rave...

Good work Pele...

Posted:NS..I've actually had that issue today. I've had alot of email complaints and such and most are from "noobs" so I am stuck debating who is who and I feel badly.



About that Noobies Suck thing, my understanding is that it was started by one of them as a diversionary tactic.



My whole thought is that we all ban together and keep them at bay and it will make our community stronger, and not suspicious in the long run. wink *hopefully*



And you are correct about our tones when dealing with noobs we have to try to remember that they skim the rules like the rest of us. wink



Ooooo.....one just called me a moderator of steel. That is MINE!!!!!!! I love it. biggrin

Posted:LOL...I had help but thanks Jo. Funny about the messenger. I thought the thing that was most suspicious was actually that there were so many from the same place and that they didn't know any of you...or each other! THAT is what was odd to me and got me looking into it initially. I live in a fairly medium sized city and know a good share of the spinners here. When they do stuff they tend to do it together. So it was strange to me that they didn't know you, or each other but all signed up at once.

B_J...we actually were. Follow the link at the top of the thread and you will see the "grand plan" which was foiled today before much could be made of it.

Posted:They swear a lot don't they? But i suppose lack of PC boundaries coupled with childish demeanors will do that to a board.

I like how they were all going back to their board and saying how nice and pleasant everyone is smile And saying how it hadn't turned nasty or resorted to a swearing/slanging match.

*shrug*



Some of them are attempting to make amends. They are being watched carefully.



In the end though it is going to be up to all of the Mods and Admins on whether or not to ban them.



I've been waiting for the others to wake up, since they are on the dark side of the globe. wink



Geez Cantus, calm down a bit. We wouldn't want anyone to think you are anything less than a lovin' hippy, now would we? wink

i am botherd at the fact that a group of people would do this, and purposly try to sab this community but i do have to admit (most likely because i got here for the aftermath and not during the 'raid') i have never laughed so much in my life!

but what strickes me the most after reading the initial raid, their site and then the aftermath here is that, how much the members of hop have stuck up and defended themselves and mostly EACHOTHER ubblove
and also that we seem to have converted some bb's to hop wink they have been apolagising and everyones getting along again!

i hope nothing like this happens again for the sake of trust and genuine newbies, but its an event like this that goes to show how strong this community is biggrin


i may see some of you guys in brighton because ill be there looking out for you eek................

and visiting some of my favourite lovely hoppers ubblove

That depends how you define 'them'



I won't deny that I have used the word hippy on here, but I wasn't being derogatory. (Well not intentionally)
