  • The test of macs managerial qualities starts from today.....

    Lets see how he starts coping without his prem loan players, hes done ok upto now asin points and getting the playersto play for him, but we are still 14th after a very good run & obviously we are going to have bad runs aswell as good, but cant help but think he`ll be propewr struggling without these loans in being injured etc, will be interesting to see how the other players come in and perform after mac showing hardly any confidence in them, even though alot was saying how great he is with the youngsters.

At that time you was chasing me around threads trying youre hardest to get a bite off me so you could ban me, as i made a admin aware of at the time of this happening, so i made sure i didnt take the bait apart from saying jokingly stan likes a edit and bang that was it banned lol
    Just had an opportunity to go back and have a look since you asked. A long time has passed now, but it looks like I actually replied to the post you now refer to, which obviously would show what you had posted. I honestly can’t recall if I had to un-delete it in order to reply, or if the act of replying may have automatically un-deleted it.

    Page 2 of the thread is below :

    What you may also notice is an offer for me to forget about it and move on. Misjudged that, didn’t I ?

    I'm not ignoring the thread and currently tied up with work, we're short staff due to holidays and I'm too shattered to do anything at the moment, so please forgive me.

    I'm going to lock this thread right now, however I've really had enough of being Mr nice guy and biting my lip. This has nothing to do with Pinkie, it goes back a very long time. I've kept things to myself, I wasn't happy and it's about time it comes to an end.

    I have a day off Friday, there is too much to find as I'm not someone who sits and collects things. It will take a bit of time but I will post, then hopefully we can all move on as we were.

    Thanks.

    I imagine he'd drop a key participant in the, er, debate and send him out on loan to Wycombe.....

    It was me that undeleted an earlier post mate. Pinkie and the entire admin team have known about this from the start though. It was just another sly dig at another admin. He is simply using that as a line of attack now as his other claim about editing a link is dead in the water. I know it is, because it never happened.

    What Pinkie seems to have missed when reproducing MYU’s message was the use of the term “should be”. It was never actually anything that we were instructed not to do.

    Sorry, I just replied to the very first post, I didn't read the whole thread.

    I'm not going to go into too much detail on the open forum, I will however explain the Pinkie situation and why I believe the ban to be wrong.

    Mod/Admin can edit posts, providing it's to remove something that breaks the site rules. When we make an edit, it wouldn't display it on the main forum, that has now been changed so you'll see who made an edit and at what time. This should solve any future edits. It was like that due to me editing my own posts hundreds of times.

    There was an edit to one of Pinkies post,but as explained I couldn't tell what was edited or why?

    When I questioned the admin, he couldn't remember so we move on.

    We upgraded the site and whilst moving our database, we seemed to have lost quite a bit of data, not only on the forum, but things behind the seen as well.

    I can't remember but I think Pinkie logged in a day or two later, not aware that the site was having issues, he made a post and said “He likes an edit” to one of the Admin. One of the members then corrected Pinkie and said that threads/posts are going missing due to our move. Pinkie then deleted his post, which we admin can still see.

    Another admin then undeleted Pinkies post and used that to get him banned.

    Number one rule for us admins should be that we don't undelete members posts, not unless they request us to do so. The fact here is as a team we abused our power by undeleting this post. The other thing here is Pinkie realised he made a mistake and quickly deleted the post he made. To me that was the right thing to do, he policed himself and that was good to see. If he hadn't of deleted it, I would've asked him nicely to remove the post, had he refused then I have a right to do something about it, and it didn't come to that.

    I know I wouldn't like to be treated like that as a member, and I won't do that to anyone else.

    If members can see Pinkie has got the wrong end of the stick, why is the admin team getting so personal?

    Pinkies 'User title' was then changed, so it didn't show 'Banned' under his username. It looked like he was still a member. That is totally misleading.

    We hardly ban anyone, if they get banned it's for good reason. I changed it back to show that he was banned and questioned it the change, no one knew anything about it?

    Again, someone went behind my back knowing I didn't want that changed and it was changed it back to show he is not banned again. I'm not happy about and it's totally disrespecting me, the members and the site.

    This site was built with the help of you members, and I thought the team had the sites best interest at heart, so I stopped doing what I was doing and started listening to my team. This is when the problems started, it's been going on for a few years and I know exactly what the problem is. Before this change the site was growing year on year.

    I needed a break and time to think, was not expecting to take so long, however I needed the time out. Before I returned, I spoke to my Tech guy and asked for an update, he explained a few things that we shouldn't be doing and other members account had been played with too, and as I result decided to go back to when the site was running at it's best. Members were happy, our team was happy and we had so many people online. The site was fun to read, it's not anymore.

    As a result of my finding and on my return, I decided to make all the admin back to moderators again, one or two asked to leave and I did as they requested.

    This is a football forum, members police themselves. There's not much do do other than move a thread and edit some things that shouldn't be there. It really is that simple.
    For awin and anyone else who missed this.

    Important to say this first as I may not have all the details.- I wasn't involved in a lot of the conversation around this matter as I think much of it happened on the whatsapp group that I'm not part of.

    1) Stan (I think) gave Pinkie a temporary ban for perceived trolling. I think this should have been a group vote and that no mod should ban someone on their own (unless it was a really serious matter that needed to be dealt with urgently)
    2) I don't believe there was any malicious intent from Brighton or Stan to get try goad Pinkie. The link edit was a broken link, simple as that. It happens, I know myself from copy and pasting. The idea that Stan or Brighton went in and edited the link is ridiculous and if MYU or anyone else has any proof then lets see it. No more nonsense about advance log files.
    3) Pinkie, I liked you as a poster but now you have a massive chip on your shoulder and just want to argue with people. Shame as you were a good laugh IMO before all this.
    4) MYU, you are good at asking for advice but never put anything you are told into action. The new design is crap, simple as. The key to increasing traffic on this forum doesn't mean a return to 2010. The internet has moved on as you will see in time.
    5) It's an insult to every posters intelligence on here to suggest that all of those accounts were not Pinkies. It's just daft. Please stop.
    6) Stan and Brighton deserve a lot more respect for the work they have put into this forum over the years.

    well, that's how I see it. Sorry, if it offends anyone but just being honest.
    Brian, for someone who wasn’t involved in as much detail as the rest of us, you’ve shown a remarkably good understanding of the facts.

    Point 4 is very interesting. When changes of any sort are made, it’s often a little bit troublesome to start with. It soon became apparent however, that the new version was a bit of a dogs dinner.

    Those involved, would know how many times we pointed out the stuff that wasn’t working. Be it difficulty in adding links, images or video, lack of commas, quotation marks etc., threads not updating, time not being displayed correctly. The list goes on.

    I am truly amazed that we were expected to have to enter the control panel and clear cache, in order for some of the site to update in some way. This was supposed to be an upgrade. And MYU had to bloody pay for it.

    It saddens me that after all this time since it was introduced, osme of these issues still remain unsolved, possibly even ignored judging by the length of time they have been going on.

    If only some time had been devoted to things like that, which would have made things easier for everyone who uses the site. Instead, we get to hear yesterday about the fabled, all seeing, advanced log files. Fantastic.
