board administrator. tyler is being compulsively annoying. he is locking posts and not giving us links. he is getting into flame wars and being snippy. he is constantly making fun of people in a very suttle way. please just go through the american coaster section and take a look at the obsurdly stupid things that he is doing. he dealeated a post that i made because i made a good point about putting links in. he said oh please and acted like an all around jerk.
<BR>thanks for reading

Hi Arlok, are we seeing the same Tyler? I know that he's had a couple of posts that might be somewhat borderline, but then haven't we all? Taken as a whole, I haven't seen that kind of behavior or post as typical of him at all.
<BR>Except maybe in response to being provoked by repeated new posts without searches, mod flaming, and other sarcastic comments directed his way.
<BR>And I'm not trying to pick on you, but you have set yourself up several times for a moderator to have to respond to you. Guess it's just Tyler's luck to be the one most of the time, maybe.

I admit some of Tyler's posts are a bit off topic too. He started talking physics and stuff in the middle of the strand about the death on Goliath. This went on for several replies. That shouldnt of been placed there. At least that is my opinion. But he's never done anything to or against me so I have nothing against him personally.

When someone <em>else</em> brings the physics in, I will reply to it...

06-08-2001, 08:02 AM
My apologies Tyler, I just thought that the physics conversation that took place should have been made into a new forum room is all. That was what I was implying. Don't get offensive. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif">

I completely agree with arlok2. Tyler you need to take a deep breath and calm down. You constantly get into flame wars with other guest. I am tired of this, and I think that we all are. It's time you sit down and think about what you've done.

06-08-2001, 04:04 PM
alright someone agress lets gather up the annoying links. sadly whenever i try to tell him to stop deleating post telling him to post a link when he locks. (sry thats kinda confusing) he dealets it and gives me a big digital sneer. i will find some of his lock no links and Abusive relplies. Bull waste is not accepable for a mod to say to someone in my oppinion.

I just plain 'strongly dislike' him because he blocked one of my topics because I accidently used the caps.

Look, I enforce the rules. I didn't make them, I just follow them, and help you, when you don't.

06-09-2001, 09:05 AM
I think Tyler is quite cool, but he is only following the rules and the instructions he was given as a Moderator so really he's done a lot of things right.

I'd have to say that Tyler is doing pretty good. I personally havn't seen anything yet that would make me think he's not.

06-10-2001, 07:47 PM
Finally people agree with me. Tyler:
<BR>I know you run a bunch of sites and you are good at what you do, however, that is no excuse to give smartass answers to people who know less than you. Maybe we aren't gifted with the knowledge of everything scientific. It seems that you are developing a pretty strong antiTyler fanbase and I suggest you cool some of your smart remarks. I have not had a problem with ANY other moderator and I love this site. To be talked down upon by a kid who thinks he is god of the boards makes me very upset. I dont know how you got this position being under 25 and all but I would wish you would do your job professionally. And no, professionalism is not using big science words to hide your obviously biased opinions.

06-10-2001, 09:55 PM
I do believe there are times when Tyler lets his emotions cloud his better judgment, but who hasn't had that problem?

The Beast

"I do believe there are times" Yes, yes there are MANY times. Tyler just can't seem to control himself.

06-11-2001, 08:54 PM
I haven't seen Tyler cross the line that much, but then again I don't think I go to the posts that he may have replied too (wierd coincidence, huh?) but I think overall Tyler is doing a good job.

06-11-2001, 09:46 PM
He is just doing his job. He can go a bit overboard, but we all make mistakes...

Got those links yet? I'm still waiting to see what I missed? <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

Everyone makes mistakes, nobody's perfect. LET IT GO!!!!!

If you dont like Tyler as a mod then mabye you should not be in the fourm.
<BR>Tyler is just doing his job.

Tyler is a fine moderater.
<BR>I don't mean to be cliche, but how would any of you react if I posted a topic saying that I didn't think that you were a good member, that you were posting off-topic and annoying things and should be told to stop? What would you do if ten or fifteen people posted replies agreeing with me? Would you think, "Hmmm, I guess I should change my evil ways and be a better person and not post useless things"? Or would you get angry and post defensively, perhaps even offensively? I think that Tyler has handled (undeserved) opposition quite well.
<BR>"Bull waste is not an acceptable thing for a mod to say." Would you prefer the alternative?
<BR>Really, I would like to see links to some bad posts that Tyler has made. The only thing I recall that he did wrong was getting into a sort of war with The Beast, where The Beast was attacking Knoebel's and The Phoenix and Tyler was attacking PKI and The Beast. That was more than a month ago, though, and I don't remember anything else that Tyler ever did to deserve being called "cumpulsively annoying".

06-16-2001, 03:39 AM
he is doing his job. look at it this way...
<BR>a criminal would complain about the way a police officer does his job, you are complianing about how a mod does his job. it is a volanuter(sp?)thing, so he does it in his own time, so let him go; it is better to have him and one that follows the rules than one who doesn't.
<BR>peace and be merry

Yes, Tyler has gotten into the occasional flame war, but its hard to avoid them, especially if you have strong feelings about the topic. And what is wrong with physics? I'm not going to give a science lecture here, but all the companies whos creations we so highly honor, (B&M, Arrow, Intamin, CCI, Morgan, Vekoma, S&S...)use physics every day. Coasters, or any other ride, wouldn't be possible without these scientific priciples. I know a lot of people don't want to see physics when debating whether S:TE is a coaster (personally, I don't either <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif"> ), but a little science isn't SUCH a bad thing, is it?<BR><BR><font size=-1>[ This Message was edited by: CedarFairMaster on 2001-06-30 22:21 ]</font>

I have no problems at all with him saying formulas. It's not like he's making them up!

y'know, this is getting ridiculous, and irritating to see the "let's bash Tyler every chance we get and in every forum" campaign. Stop it already!
<BR>If you must discuss it, do it on the following thread.
