    I don't see the problem. Copy-pasting his thread so a current staff has it under their name is kinda unproductive and takes credit away from him.

    I mean it's not really an "issue" issue, but it can be done.

    I actually agree. We typically change out authors to current staff, this would qualify, imo.

    It's been done with every other pinned thread created by a banned member. Not sure why staff did this in the first place if they weren't gonna be consistent :confused:

    Good. He's permabanned. Why does he deserve credit?

    I originally felt the same way, but After I talked to a few people I changed my opinion. Guilty created the thread, Cared enough to make it, We shouldn't discredit him. He deserves the credit regardless of his current status in the community.

    Again, I actually sat there and felt the same way, Just would be wrong to completely discredit him, At the least say something at the bottom thanking him

    He can be credited in the end.
    I feel like all important threads should be posted by the owner so it stays there.

    Otherwise all the other hard working former now perma'd boys shouldn't have had their threads deleted :mad:

    @Haruka Suenaga @Kinky Elvis You want to express your thoughts as to why you say its dumb when its clearly been done time and time again before especially when the user that made the thread is banned?

    My only reason is that well its a very important thread and It would look better if the person wasnt a pedo banned. Like i said u can credit the person at the end or the beginning or both times if you feel like it.

    Let me express my 2 cent here. It's severely misguided to delete posts made by banned users. You may do this as a last-ditch effort change history in the eyes of new players, but that in and of itself is misguided. I'm not sure why it's productive to delete their posts and claim their credit when they are banned. You may say that "oh but they mention their names at the end, so it's the same"- it's not. If you are doing so to allow players to pm only staff members when they have questions about the thread, then you can add that as a disclaimer in the thread itself. Olympics has a very bad problem of Athletes doping. However, they do not reassign the medals after the athletes have been caught of doping, they strip them of it. If you want a last-ditch effort to look good in new player's eyes (let's just leave the argument how ineffective reclaiming a thread is for doing so right now), you should assert that even though the person has made this much effort to the community, they were regardless banned because the circumstances and non-discrimination. You shouldn't just say oh hey, whatever you do it won't count if you get banned. It's a bad idea to follow what other admins have done just for the sake of following what they have done. You shouldn't try to change history in the history books just because you have the power of doing so.

    Well for starters the banned user has done a very terrible thing and was banned for it. And secondly it looks stupid that the thread explaining the Application to become a staff member is banned, especially since it looks counter intuitive for a person who broke the rules explaining the process.

    I'm upset that @Opalium posted the end round songs in the tips and tricks thread and robbed me of a bunch of positive ratings. Luckily I have something like 6k positives over him. Go me.

    At the end of the day, he is perma banned so he can't really edit the thread now anyways, I think it should be re-made because new users may think it doesn't apply because the user who made the thread is permabanned. Just gives some contradicting vibes that's all.

    I also don't understand the "credit" argument. That thread guilty posted was made 3+ years ago. One of the posts on the thread was edited last Wednesday.

    Throughout 3 years, it has been edited and reformated by several other admins. Hell, the original post probably wasn't even all written up by Guilty. He likely had some help and/or was just the person to post it

    This isn't an issue. Not only is credit retarded since it's practically a collaboration of several staff's efforts, but it's been consistent that banned players' pinned threads are reposted by a current member of staff. Not sure why Guilty should get a pass

    Just doesnt set the best example and leads to questions that people dont need or want to know the answer to.
    "Oh this person that was in a high spot in this community wonder why they are banned." "Oh its because they did this really illegal thing, but hey they were a great (staff member)"

    I hold deeply the values of respecting the posts of individuals who have contributed valuable content to this community; in other words, keeping credit where credit is due.

    However, in considering the nature of the members actions, defamed status, and permanent removal from this community, removing the threads relationship from the player in question would not -under this criteria- be inappropriate.
