[MOD post]  
As you may or may not be aware, fm_alchemist has had IP logging turned on for several months now, but we have still allowed anonymous commenting. Now, thanks to a fellow user who decided to abuse the anon commenting and log out to flame someone, and due to the ridiculous wankfest that happened in that icon post the past few days, anon commenting has been turned off indefinitely. It may or may not be returned once the mods consult each other about what to do about it.

On the subject of that icon post, I would like to say now that anyone caught perpetuating wank caused by a troll from now on will also be issued warnings and possibly bannings, depending on the severity of the flaming going on on both sides. The only reason this didn't happen this time was because many of the mods were gone or busy this weekend and only saw the post after the fact. Any individual warnings issued would be reactionary rather than proactive. This is us being proactive right now: Please do not make yourselves into asshats just to get back at an asshat. Contact a mod, it's as simple as that. We can log IPs and track and ban users. If you choose to not let a mod handle it, then there will be consequences. All flaming will be dealt with accordingly by the mods.

Think before you post, you guys.


mikkeneko had this to say:

"Anonymous posting is (or was until recently) a way to allow nonregistered users to participate in this community. It is not intended to be a vehicle for registered comm members to act provocatively without fear of retaliation from other users. The mods can and do track IP addresses and if we see that the anon commenting feature is being abused in this manner, we will take steps.

"Furthermore, just as anon commenting is not a license to act rudely, an anonymous or trolling post does not excuse any of the other comm members from adhering to the expected standards of civility. You are expected to be responsible and civil on the comm at all times, not merely when you feel like it. Flaming and troll-baiting, whether anonymous or signed, are not acceptable ways of dealing with a provocative statement -- contact a mod. 'Don't feed the trolls' isn't just a piece of advice; it's a rule and will be enforced as such."

uwa! ur so fast to catch these things! *glomp* good though, i think its safer to let the community just have member posts.

just my opinion, but everyont thinks differently. im sure some anon posters wont like it, but meh they asked for it *shrug*

Ah, the sweet mods always looking out for us. 8D Thank you!

It's a good idea. :) Since LJ is free and it takes almost no effort to sign up for an account, there's not really a real need for anon commenting anyway.

Good job!. Anonymous posting isn't necessary anyways. If someone has something they want to say they can just join.

I will retain my comments about this whole thing. >_>

Actually, you haven't been wanking at all lately. *Eyes you* Are they putting something in the water where you are, or have you found a hither-to undiscovered stack of Hughes-centric doujinshi to distract you? :D

I learned very quickly that anonymous posting leads to trouble...
I'm glad that you've removed it from this community, hopefully elricest will do the same.

Bwee? Did we have problems with anon on the elricest com?

Thank you! Maybe now we can stay off of Fandom Wank for more than a few weeks at a time...

Hee, actually up until that icon wank, this comm (not the fandom, just this comm) hadn't had any wankery since the mod wank. ^_^

Go fm_alchemist!!

You guys need a medal for super moderating or something, because you're awesome. <3<3<3

Woohoo! *claps*

Wank kills my neurons, so I'm definitely with you guys on this one. It's just plain stupid to fight over something as silly as a fandom. We're all just here to have a good time and obsess over FMA like everyone else. :D

So, basically...thanks. XD


Where is the love, where is the loooove?
