Cygan wants to come back I think and I don't the other person
I have yet to learn of a confrontation between Cygan and "the staff" in which she didn't at the very least have a good point to make.
She'll be missed. :/
With apology for a lack of knowledge surrounding the context, seconding. :/
Damn. That's a pity. —sigh—
I guess that means this is the first time someone got banned who I legitimately liked. Well, second, I guess, but I don't count the first one anymore.
Well I am pretty fucking pissed right now.
I am not now nor have I ever been in the "Tvtropes is a cesspit" camp, but this is pretty indicative of some problems. I can understand prior bans (Anne had an attitude problem, as a for instance), but this is just arbitrary. I have literally never seen Cygan Angel post something that was not civil, well-worded, and at least attempting to make a point. Which is more than I can say for a good 95% of this forum, myself included.
The day when politely voicing your concerns counts as "attacking the staff" is the day myself and about two dozen other people at the very least get the hammer. Two moderators included. Is that really such a great idea?
Any time someone is banned for something like "being too critical" it only proves the paranoid and the detractors right. Do you honestly want to become what they think you are?
I have seen her post things that were uncivil. She frequently let her emotions get the better of her. I don't want to defame her or anything, but there probably was a stack of straws. I would like specific examples, because I didn't notice any of her posts thumped, and I went back to check.
If she ever did it was not any worse than what gets thrown at the staff all the damn time. And certainly no worse than what gets thrown by tropers at each other.
I still can't find any thumped posts in the appeal thread. I'm using post search.
Unless FE was referring to previous thumped posts, which there probably were indeed a lot of.
I'm guessing posts like these are what caused the result?
Just for context. Which is always good.

I'll miss ya.
Madrugada: So I take it the Cygan Angel ban has been more or less reported accurately?
I didn't think so.
So is he still going to be Yack Fest's herald?

Bad bans don't bug me half as much as ragequits.
Cygan's been trying to get banned for weeks, but Bobby G wouldn't let her. So I'm not to ruffled about this.

She has? Really? I didn't know that. What has she been doing? And why?
Basically she was trying to make annebeeche's style work for her. Because she asked Bobby to just ban her and he wouldn't.
...that's...tragic, I guess. At least we know the full story now.—sigh— I'm going to go to bed all restless and everything.
I hope she's happy then, at least. If she wanted to be banned, maybe she is happier now.

I question whether Cygan wanted to get banned or not. Couldn't say for sure, with her, though. Insofar as I can tell, she is a mystery a lot of the time. Figuring out what she means and why she does things is like a wonderfully mindfuck-filled puzzle. And probably shouldn't be, but I'm fail like that.
As for Blixty, whoa, didn't expect that at all...
He got rather emotional at times but I was not expecting that.
