Just to be clear, I wasn't asking to make it like the garbage other forums with 8000 different sections that are terrible to navigate. I was just suggesting it mostly as the dank memes section has now become news/politics and not so dank. I want a politics section so I can mute it.

A couple of thoughts regarding the discord, both from my time there and from being banned.

There is truly an excellent community there at times, willing to help when needed. Now...the bad. Sporadically enforced, poorly or simply *un*defined rules, excessive ****posting in every single channel, blatant antisemitism by at least one member.... it frankly does not present an amazing image overall. One member said it best when someone asked if there are server rules: "There are, but only when convenient for the mods". I was banned for in jest pinging a moderator 5 times across two channels over the span of 2 hours, which apparently constitutes "repeated harassment" - of note is that at least one of these pings was a serious inquiry as to the price of an item, and another was a genuine request for moderation/clarification. There was not truly clear warning given, nor was a full reason given: in fact, as far as I was aware it was merely the normal joking interaction as is so common on that server. In contrast, other users have previously without repercussion: doxed admins (end result of that interaction for those curious: admin demoted from position, user allowed to stay after <1 day ban), posted anti-semitic content, posted actual pornography in general, etc, etc. If the intent is to have a server with no rules, then that goal has certainly been reached. I've said my piece, take it as you will.

Admittedly I don't hang out on the Discord server hardly at all, but I've never seen antisemitism or poorly enforced rules. Discord is kinda by nature unstructured. If you want structured volvo stuff, that's what the forum is for.

If you've got screenshots of antisemitism, post them, that should never be tolerated.

Maybe it's just me, but these jokes seemed in *extremely* poor taste at best - same user had made similar remarks a few times in the past as well.

Yuh. Discord is the suk.


I'm old and discord feels like walking into an elementary school where they feed the kids crack.

I am not sure the meaning of this, it is rare that there is a need for a moderator to take action on anything. The server is pretty self-regulating with the regulars calling stuff out as they see fit.

You were both asked to stop pinging them AND kicked a couple of times before the ban. Yet you came back to do it again.

I am not sure exactly what happened specifically during that altercation, as the demoted person purged all the evidence, but you know that the two involved knew each other in person and constantly have beef for some reason.

In regards to the "demote," we have gotten DOZENS of complaints over a long period of time about the person. They have had an habit of harassing members and bringing other people to the server with the specific intent of harassing members and starting drama.

1.) As stated, To have "no rules," WAS the original intent of the server. But if people really need "Do not harass people" or "stop means stop" to be spelled out on a bold and flashing sign, we can oblige. The rules that have been available on turbobricks for 20 years are a good start: https://forums.turbobricks.com/misc.php?do=showrules

2.) I will have to agree, but mostly in regards to the ****posting. It is extremely irritating when one asks a question and the choice ****posters just respond with nonsense, derailing the attemped discussion. It is a REALLY bad look when the asker is new to the group. Though, the forum is the better place for direct, on-topic discussion. c'est la vie.

1.) As stated, To have "no rules," WAS the original intent of the server.

The rules that have been available on turbobricks for 20 years are a good start: https://forums.turbobricks.com/misc.php?do=showrules
So the argument is both that there are no rules and that there are rules? Fair enough then, see again the quote about "only when convenient for the mods". To be blunt, the issue is less if there are or are not rules, but the fact that there seem to be very different standards depending on the user and time: more than one person messaged me afterwards noting their surprise as they had personally done worse without issue. As for being kicked beforehand....the moderator in question had previously kicked me as a joke more than once: it came across as, again, merely the normal level of joking inherent in the server. They have kicked others in jest as well in the past, as well as generally used moderator powers to goof around with users in various ways. I'm sorry I misinterpreted it, however the distinction between what was a joke and what was an actual moderator activity was not made clear. As I had previously said in DMs to the moderator in question, if razzing is too much just let me know to cut it out and I would - I'm aiming for gentle shop-talk level hard time similar to the rest of the server, absolutely not actual harassment. A simple DM of "Yo dude, knock it off" and I would have immediately stopped. As is, the actions were at best nebulous. Sorry to have misinterpreted.

As for this, perhaps you should ask the moderator in question about their repeated submissions to the photo contest in the other volvo discord, particularly concerning a certain pizza.... I may have made jokes aplenty, not denying that - but I tried to keep them within the realm of what seemed to be reasonably accepted within the server in terms of what is safe to post or not. What I posted fell *far* short of some content I regularly saw on the server, including from the moderators themselves. As for my activities elsewhere, that's a matter for other servers and other times and not relevant to current discussion.

Fair enough - I seem to have missed the part where they apologized. My bad on that.
