|The New Poster Boy for AL-infamity makes himself known.

It was never enough that the former ClanNation mod, Mobius should go and delete the entire ClanNation forum after getting pissed off at his fellow staff members (Coincidently enough he did it some five hours after Delve refused to make him a signature). Clearly not happy enough at this attempt to destroy the work of 100s of other people, he has now made a site for his wonderful little rants - the first being squarely against animeleague.
That's right, guys! No longer do you have to hear the rantings of that old character Mobius through being passed AIM logs of the crap he sprouts - now you can go straight to the source!
Mobius Rant - Why I hate you so much..
Most of it is the stereotypical bitter nonsense that amounts to simple opinions, rather than accounts or proof. However, I figured I should post a few of the accounts he did write, and fill in the gaps between his fantasy and what is actually reality.
Did I forget to mention how indecisive they are? One of the morons(moderator) had the nerve to report to a head moderator about a topic some member made as titled:
"You're all noobs! Give me your credits!"
After a little rant about how moronic the staff are (alongside the BlackMage love-in), he concludes with the revelation that the topic was locked. Well, what do you expect? People who replied to the topic took it wrongly, others replied baiting them (if I recall correctly), and the topic was locked before it got worse. The entire thread was an open invitation for baiting to occur in it's tone in the ACTUAL post.
A topic title does not make it's original post or it's replies.
Never mind the fact he condones this, but launches a campaign on 'removing the cynicism that is in AL from the newer people."
Actually, the clan of Anglo-Revolution is firstly not a campaign. Secondly, it's intention is to improve the atmosphere amongst the members and encourage less cynicism across everyone, not newer members alone. Holmes needs to do his homework, he's just making himself look like an uninformed fool.
Well, I say that every time I search their forum and look through their unorganized thread placement.
Notice an opinion here, but nothing to substantiate it. Reason? Well, he can't. The threads are organised perfectly fine. He does this quite a lot in this rather pathetic rant.
The system itself isn't even elaborated on. The judges JUDGE you based off of their personal belief. There is no score system, nothing to determine why, when, and where. They round you off with a number, and 'style,' is apparently a legitimate category. This is all based on the assumption that they are 'qualified,' to review someone else's work.
Actually, there is a score system, and it's largely assessed by Matt Nada. I am sure he'd be more than happy to show him the system he uses and explain how it all works in depth - he might even learn something (perish the thought, supreme sparrer)! ^_^
As an aside, I found this a rather amusing mistake. I wonder if it's a deliberate error to convey some feeble attempt at irony - somehow I doubt it. Being the nice guy I am, I've gone and fixed his mistake.
and to actually believe some of these
literate illiterate twats get ranked 8 is a mystery to me.
Back on track -
Seriously. There is nothing else to do but do these 'schemes,' to keep your clan alive.
Ah yes, his rant about schemes being used in clans, along with activity checks and so forth. Well, last time I checked schemes were not the only thing for clans to do. In fact, a clan can opt NOT to do a scheme at all. A clan picks to do -
One of: Organisation or Guild activities (Schemes and RPing respectively).
One of: Tournament or Sponsoring activities.
There is a group called 'Anime league empire,' inside of Clan Nation. The sole purpose of this group is to have old members that are well known among themselves come in Clan Nation, and lord their seniority over you. You have to be 'cool,' enough to be in this group. This is a load of hypocrisy on so many levels, and it isn't beside the fact they contribute nothing productive with a 'scheme,' like that.
Gee, he's a bit out of it. Animeleague Empire was removed over a month ago now. And no, it was never a good idea in the first place, and we are working on deterring these kind of clans being formed. Unfortunately, it will take time to ensure that more useful clans are made over these ones that are, to put it nicely, fads and jokes at best.
Then we come to cover Animeleague rewards. Let's not forget that Freesayian, the administrator, is rewarded almost every reward in Animeleague. Effectively showing how bias this site is, and how self-adsorb Freesayian is. This is as bad as him getting rated a 10 in Role player's Realm. Remove the cynicism? You remove the hypocrisy.
Really? Hmmm, last time I checked I was given a level 9 in Roleplayer's Realm, as it happens, not a 10. I guess you counted on no one answering your ridicolous distortions of the facts.
As for awards? Well, last AL Awards I won (which aren't even that important, they are intended as a bit of fun, not something to be so jealous over) -
Most Famous (Makes sense given I am the owner and just everyone has heard of me)
Most Dedicated (I'm on all day - if you wanna accuse me of not having much of a life, you have me there!)
Most Perverted (I didn't even want this one, but thanks O.o This isn't really much of an award, more neutral, has good and bad to it)
Most Valuable Forum Member (Nice to win, but let's face it, if I left it'd hurt AL more than anyone else leaving - not being egotistical, but I do put a LOT into this place)
That's four awards out of some 35 awards. Seems quite justified to me. I think Mobius is just jealous that I own a major message board, and he's well... banned from one and is even now losing what's left of his reputation. He lost his mind, fucked up, and is now trying to justify why he did it, when it was all his own fucking fault.
Never mind the fact that I proudly deleted all of Clan Nation's topics and Archive because of poor supervisor management(my bosses suck), but my rules for the sub-forum was accepted until a few trolling members caused a mess
It must have hurt him to have known that I back the boards up every day. Restoring the topics he deleted was done within the hour. A lot of CNers didn't even know he did it. It was beautiful - he showed us his true colours, and we lost precisely nothing at the end of the day.
Poor supervisor management? Short of going to his house and breaking his hands, there was little we could have done to stop him going fucking insane over his fellow mod not making a signature for him.
Ironically enough, my rules are still in effect. However, they had some dumb Mobius-wannabe(Delve) try to come with a different draft. This effectively made a reworded version of the very rules and concepts I came up with. You know, why not just accept that fact that I make a better moderator and keep me on the job. Instead of playing grab-ass and finding little ways of getting rid of me, because I did nothing 'constructive.' Well, ain't that a bitch because I see MY rules being used NOW.
I hate Animeleague.
<3 I enjoy this part the most. You can actually visualise the sheer bitterness dripping in every word of that paragraph. Man, this guy needs to attend some anger-management classes or something. I feel sorry for his gf who has to listen to this shit.
The most amusing aspect is this from the main page:
I would also love to give credit to Maddox, who's work inspired me to do this. Am I ripping his idea off? Yes. However, my circumstance is that I don't feel like venting my RAGE on my girlfriend. So, she is going to read it instead of hearing it come from my mouth.
1. If I were Maddox I'd want to fly an aeroplane into his house right about now just to shut him up.
2. HIS RAGE? RAGE? RAGGGEEE!!! We have an Incredible Hulk wannabe!
3. Cos your girlfriend will MUCH prefer you going around AIMing major members of animeleague with links to your rant. It looks SO much better on her that way. God. You're a fucking moron. Haven't you done enough to try and sabotage her position on staff simply by association with you already?
Take him away in the straitjacket, folks. He's gone.
