Movie Trailers: A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III - Trailer

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III - Trailer

Quite possibly the best thing Charlie Sheen has done since leaving Two and a Half Men.

Why was DVS BSTrD suspended for his response to this thread? Seems like a moderator is abusing their privileges (again). Seriously, what is with the moderators and banning people for doing NOTHING wrong? If there's one reason people hate the escapist, it's the moderators on the forums who seem to think any post that they dislike is a report worthy post.

And to post something that actually contributes to the topic, the movie looks very Charlie Sheen-esque. It reminds me of Austin Powers almost.

Quoted from the Moderation Team user group:

Because the post had nothing to do with the topic. It was not about the trailer, the movie, film in general or anyone involved in its production. It would be borderline low-content if it was talking about a game, but when talking about a movie it is completely unrelated to the topic at-hand.
It's a suspension because that's the minimum that can be dished out given the user's health bar.

It'd be nice if, in future, you asked a Mod directly, instead of posting slander about it in the thread. Thanks!

why does it remind me of sucker punch? only this time with dudes.

I read his response as excitement for the film. You can pre-order films. I too am excited. Seeing Sheen with actors I actually respect... it's an odd thing to think he'd still be able to make it into a film with someone like Bill.

Kinda awesome.
So is being excited for the content considered "off-topic"? Should I even ask? Does this break the rules? I'm terribly unsure of myself and making posts, now. And this isn't sarcasm.

If that's true, hopefully he'll use the appeal system and get his ban cleared. I'm afraid I wasn't the Mod who handled it, so I don't know much about it.

Being excited for the content isn't off-topic at all, just make sure you say why you're excited as well!

Also thank you for responding nicely (or at least neutrally). =]

You could make it right at least.

Sadly I can't. Since I wasn't the Mod who applied the ban, I can't remove it. He'll have to go through the Appeals System. :/

Wow, so if the mod who did it just decides to be a dick nothing will be done about it? I find the lack of accountability here disturbing.

Noooo no no. You're misunderstanding me here. I thought you meant me making it right personally (sorry).

All basic Mods can't remove anything higher than a warning, that's left to the Staff. That's why we tell people to use the appeals system, since that sends messages directly to the Staffs email.

I'll post about this in the Mod Team user group, to see if that speeds things along.

Ahh alright! That makes more sense, thanks!

FelixG:

Okay, the response is:

You can't currently pre-order that film, if we really want to go down this road.
And it still doesn't stop it from being borederline low content. And considering he can't actually pre-order it (and hasn't, despite the claim), that means that the only remaining part of the post is "Day one purchase," which, alone, is low-content in any thread if that's all that's there.

Again, he can still use the Appeals system if he has proof, but otherwise there's nothing we can do about it.

Maybe he reserved a copy rather than actually pre-ordering it, as people often refer to that as pre-ordering as well.
A suspension for borderline low content and suspicion of telling a trivial lie seems overly harsh.

Find a place where it can currently be reserved, and your first point might be valid.

The suspension is because his health bar would not allow for anything lower than the suspension. That is why it wasn't just a warning; there was no way to actually give just a warning.

It's head-scratching. I followed the suspension link from another thread and figured it was a low-content pun or something (he is known for that sort of thing). But that? Come on guys. You can admit you screw up sometimes, that's understandable. Don't bullishly stick to it, though.

When you consider DvS's sense of humor, his post actually fit pretty well. This wasn't anywhere near the caliber of non-sequitur of "I thought this thread would cure my acne!" that one of my threads got a long time ago.

Well, this thread was derailed hard.

rhizhim:

Is there a point to Sucker Punch without gratuitous T&A and CG porn?

Still, Bill Murray. I will watch anything with Bill Murray in it. Well, maybe not if he dresses in one of the outfits from Sucker Punch and dances, but....Definitely giving this a shot.

I came here expecting bad puns about Charlie Sheen, instead I find attacks on mods for something they shouldn't even be attacked for.

This discussion is bi-FAILING! It fails here and it fails there. Now what?
See, that is how you post in a Charlie Sheen related thread.
