View Full Version : Poll: The forums - How much do you miss your avatar text?

Some weeks ago, the UBI admins decided that some people with severe intellectual disabilities could think that users with labels like 'sexperten', 'hey yo!' or 'shaggy baggy plop' may be considered moderators and administrators.

To avoid this, they erased the avatar titles of those they could see active at the moment.

Now that the ******ed ones have carefully noted down the name of moderators so they can find them and PM ******ed things to them, it may be time for asking respectfully our titles back.

But, maybe you don't want that to happen.

They didn't get mine, how many still have one?
So I guess I can't realy participate in you poll. Maybe I still have one cause they like me more, or like me less and forgot about me..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Don't really believe the "Everyone's a Mod" reason since virtually everyone in the community had text anyway, and the Mods has their titles clearly indicated within their texts.

The texts added personality to the forums, methinks. Bring em back, Doods! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

They were mostly removed due to complaints of elitism as people thought it was un fair that some had them and some did not.
Many mods fought to keep them but to know avail.

now THIS is really really strange..


I had an avatar text that made sense and was of USE, as it read what name I am known under when I fly (a.k.a F19_Klunk) which Ivan gave me to avoid confusion.

Then some of you admins remove this one, but restore pointless ones such as "Sexperten" , "Wheels on the bus go round and round" and stuff??

Go and figure.... this place gets weirder and weirder....

Your text was full of sense. This is, your text was booooooring. Something so serious can be easily mistaken for a charge in UBI, or in the Government. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

BTW, my text isn't pointless. It actually makes a point. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

And still miss the 'Translater extraordinaire" part that I EARNED, guess what, translating things from Spanish for you guys.

But, hey, you're right, your text was given to you for good reason, and it should be restored.

As for new guys feeling pwned because of not having them, well, at least it is based on being a loyal user of the forums, and not just in spam numbers, like lots of forums which have 'ranks' based in post numbers.

I was wondering what happened to those little writings. They were quite funny. Although I wouldn`t want a title unless it said `artist` and that was it... maybe piss artist as many have called me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I find people who whine in secret to Mods very annoying. They can`t fight the battle in the open so it`s creep up to Mr. giant Moderater or Admin and get things happening that way.

The majority don`t know until suddenly it`s happened. Just like I didn`t know until just now!

I do miss things that gave this forum a personality.

They removed the scripts just when I figured it all out and made myself a great reply table( red with Porsche Carrera 996).Instead of a rank I had 'Willywhiner'. That was cool.

My avatar text wasn`t something special, though I admit it was elitist.A bit malicious cuz " I have never been an ace" is misleading.After all, I belong to the strict forum elite `round here and part of a group of the best Luftwaffe pilots on HL.

They should not have given them to us in the first place.

ok they're gone now, quite sad considering the added character they gave each of us, and the happiness i remember when i first gained mine, made me feel unique and wanted...

i say as a protest we all delete our sigs and have simple names and thats all...to signify our anger!

Maybe even stop posting here. Surely we can't all just let this happen. I know i'm not around much anymore but man things can't keep going this way!
