Default My blog

I ask the moderator, who has deprived me of the opportunity to edit the content of my blog, to return my previous access settings and not break my blog in the future.

Of course, I appreciate your humor, but even more I appreciate the adequacy and play within the rules.

Thank you.

Blog is not for rewriting history, nor for putting in other people's mouths what they didn't say, nor similarly rewriting past messages.

MersenneForum is a forum.
If you want to blog - don't confuse MersenneForum with OpenPress or Wix.

That is exactly what has been done. Your previous access settings "were returned". No one on the forum edits their 3-month old postings "to make it so that they were always right from the very beginning".

Those who know what they are doing are very comfortable with unexpected attacks from everywhere.

This is the new normal. It actually becomes boring after a while...

It's a bit like a Star Wars movie (lots of lasers going off, people spinning around, etc).

Only, different.

And, for those who know what they're doing, a bit boring.

Do you feel stifled by draconian forum editing regulations?

Do you feel unappreciated by the unwashed masses because your message is lost in a sea of noise?

Do you yearn for the creative license to elucidate eager readers about your ideas?

Well, we have the product for you, and best of all, it is free!

You can find this nest of hot activity within the "Extra Stuff" part of the forum.

You too can be a part! Just request, via PM, and we will set you up with your own personal cubbyhole in the vast mersenneforum.org universe!

You will be the moderator of your own forum!

Do you want to edit a post? Sure!
Do you want to edit it three years later? Hey, you own it so do it!
Do you want to delete it all in fit of rage? That power lies at your fingertips! (Note: We cannot restore deleted stuff!)

If you have any questions, please ask!

The forum creator suggested exactly that in his post. Maybe you just haven't read about it?

I believe that the role of a moderator and absurd tyranny are incompatible things.

You lost editing powers because you edited the posts of others. You're closer to getting banned from posting at all than you are to having any such powers returned. Continuing to argue makes you more of an annoyance to the moderators, and it's easier for us to simply silence you than put up with your whining.

If you don't like what moderators do around here, don't post here. We don't like how you behave, and the collective moderator-pool actions are designed for what we view as the good of the forum. Your trolling and arguing aren't good for the forum. You can change behavior, or you can be gone.

Correction: Moderators (even Supermods) couldn't change the "access settings" of a blogger even if they wanted to.

Your blogger privileges were a Gift from God (Admins). And you grossly and willfully abused this gift. And so, the gift was withdrawn from you. God giveth, and God taketh away.

Count your blessings, and be thankful for God's infinite mercy. Remember - you are not banned (your privilege to post is not currently suspended). And remember also - God has refrained from taking away the gift of your user account.

We are confused. Then why are you fighting to become one?

Just write whatever you want to write in your blogorrhea. If anything, the default editing rules instill the good writing skills. A good writer doesn't get to go and tear a page from their book and paste something entirely different, after a year. Think a little more before you post. Use external editor. These are not frivolous suggestions - good people do exactly that.

1. You might need you irony-meter serviced. Its needle seems to get stuck to the floor.

2. Where in that message does it say that your can edit other users posts? you do that -- and you lose that granted privilege.

3. The invitation for the blog doesn't imply that you will get it granted. You may ask for it. But you can't always get what you want. ... if you try -- sometimes you just might find you get what you need.

There are reasons that some have to edit posts that are years old. For example kriesel is maintaining manuals and documentation. It is useful to edit those posts. I maintain the thread for strategic double checks and needed triple checks. This is much more useful to have in a single maintained thread than those one-offs that were around before. As noted you have become a vexatious poster. That does not make it likely that you will get more privileges. Some 'blogs' are granted so the person can "go play over there while the adults talk over here". Some are granted for folks to vent OT things without actually cluttering the main forum areas. And then there are things like what kriesel is doing.

Yeah. That's simply not done. At least, not by anyone who takes power seriously.

Terry Pratchett might have summed it up best with his Discworld thinking.

There are many other examples, of course.
