If you are in anyway offended by what is said in the latter part of this post…
I don't really care.

To complainers of the server: WAH WAH WAH WAH. Cry me a fucking river
please because I seriously won't be bothered with what you have to say. Do you
run this site? No. Do you moderate this site? No. I'm fine with suggestions
and all, but when you complain about a site that is so generously letting you
leech off of it when you get to a small level of 10, you sir/miss, are an ass.
This site is not on any type of professional server, this is basically run by
a group of friends who try and keep it alive. So every time you complain with
'Oh it's so sloooow', 'why does it take so long to looooaaaddd?' why don't you
look how many people are hitting this site a day. Our average is around
350-400 USERS A DAY-- CONSTANT. And WELL over 330,000 individual impressions a day. That's why it's slow, that's why it takes so long.
And what are most of them doing? LEECHING. Take a look at the bottom of the
gallery page and compare the users viewing that to the amount of viewers
utilizing the forums-- it's at least twice the amount. And if you're sooo
worried about it being so slow because your connection is so uber, DONATE! We
just upgraded the server not two months ago, and because of that we've
obtained more members than we had expected. So to get the site going faster MT
needs money. But do we charge you for the awesome walls? The awesome scans?
And the awesome works of art by talented artists? No, we don't. We charge you
zilch, nada-- because we're nice (for the most part). So basically you're
getting one of, if not THE, biggest gallery of original and high quality works
of art. We're not saying you HAVE to pay, but it's nice to get a few bucks for
a server that is way overloaded. And if you don't like the slow speed, LEAVE.
To complainers of the mods: SHUT UP. The mods are what keep the place
sane when you think of it. Wouldn't you be pissed off if your scan was in the
gallery three billion times and you couldn't do anything about it? This is our
job, and we get over 200 reports a day, so we can't exactly pick and chose our
favorites to keep, it's just not the way it works. We see which scan is bigger
and has better quality and delete the lesser, and if you can't deal with that
LEAVE. And to those who say we're mean and give no one a chance, just
seriously shut up. When people basically challenge a mod to ban them, what
should a mod do? Ban them. If we weren't hard on you guys I guarantee the
gallery would be overrun by people trying to take advantage of our kindness--
so the mix of mean/nice mods comes into play. And frankly, speaking for the
"meaner" mods, we really don't care if you don't like us. It's not our fault
you can't cope with people having better scans than you that you most likely
didn't even scan yourself. And you say we close your threads? Well when we've
had fourteen of the same thread, we REALLY don't need another one. It's not
that hard to search the forums for a thread to see if it's already there...
especially if it's a common thread.
Do you seriously think your the first to come up with the "Sub/Dub war?"
"Favorite Car?" "Favorite Anime/Manga/Game?" "Most Anticipated Game?" You're
not! MT has been around for a bit over 3/4's of a year, so I guarantee you
we've already had the thread that your genius brain is conjuring.
To the rippers: GET.A.LIFE. Seriously, are you so stupid to think we
won't figure out that we've already had this wall? Especially when you rip the
most favored wall IN MT. Come on, we're not stupid. And would you PLEASE read
the rules? It's right there in it, it says: No ripping. And there is no such
thing as an "Exception to ripping". Ripping is ripping no matter how you look
at it. You take someone else’s wall that you didn't make-- ripping. You take a
wall from a site that has gone MIA-- ripping. You take a wall of a well-known
member/moderator of MT-- ripping AND banning. And it servers you right if you
get banned, you ripping prick. It takes, on average, for a good wall to be put
out at least 4 hours. That's four hours we could be spending elsewhere and
doing something else. NO we spend our time making beautiful walls for the
members and public of MT. But no, you think "OMFG TIHS WLAL IS TEH
KEWLEST!11!! LEME POUST IT ON DIS STIE RITE HUR CUZ I DUOBT TEH MKAER SOHWS
HIZ WURK HUR!!!!!11!!!" Yeah, once again...get a life. Just the IDEA of
ripping a wall should get your fingers slowly sawed off with a dulled knife
and then force-fed up your ass.
To the spammers: How thick can one's skull get? Did you really think
that spamming the gallery and the forum with the SAME message was a good way
to get levels? Did you think we weren't going to see 28 pages of spam in a
guestbook? Did you really think having your friends were going to make you
'cooler'? Do you really think posting the SAME gallery comment in like 14
different people's gallery was smart? Do you even HAVE a life? I mean, what
goes through your head when you spam? 'Hmm... well I'm too lazy to type while
I sit on my fat ass and look at screen with a Redbull and cheez-its, so I'll
just copy/paste this message over and over and over and...over...and over...
and over and fucking over.' In what community is that EVER acceptable? Are you
a n00b to the internet? Seriously, it's common sense not to be an idiot on a
forum of a thousands of people. You just make yourself look like an ass and an
idiot to everyone else on the site. And if you were thinking we do laugh and
crack jokes at you after your stupid ass was banned... the answer is most
definitely...yes.
To the leechers: I have one word for you: Bandwidth. MT's average
monthly output is OVER 1000GB's.
Seriously, you could at least leave a nice comment on the scan that you
download. Whenever I look at scan's download:comment ratio, it's SO sad
because people don't even give credit to the others who actually scanned the
scan (which is rare `cause most high-level scanners are bitches and just rip
from other sites and paste 'imgboard' at the bottom because they're bitch and
bitchy bitches at that) and took their time to give you a quality high-res
scan. And what's even worse is that most people who download the scans use it
so their right hand can talk to their dick. Out of all the gallery's I've ever
seen of scans, MT's is the most laden with just scans of badly placed women in
scantly clad clothing. Now, I don't mind that, but at least make the scan
useable. If they're missing more that 50% of their body then it's NOT USABLE.
I'd say maybe 1 out of every 100 scans actually gets used for walling. And the
scan to other-art ratio is WAY too low. Scans are submitted every 5 seconds,
while it could take HOURS for another art piece of to be submitted. And that's
because all of the leechers care more about hot anime chicks and not awesome
art.
To the non-english speaking members: Do you see the most common
language on MT? What is it? Anglais? Engirish? Engels? Englisch? Inglese?
Bei-go? Inglés? YES! ENGLISH! I don't really feel like translating something
that I can't read. Why not just do us all a favor and use babelfish,
freetranslation, or any other translating site. I'd rather read poorly
translated English that fucking Spanish. And all of these
spanish/hispanic/latio/what-the-fuck-ever-you-are who submit gallery items
that are rips, screenshots, and other stupid things, open up that god damn
translator and put the rules in there and put it in your language. No one
cares if you're from another country and it's hard to speak English. This is
why we have online translators readily available, to make it easier for us to
communicate with each other. Your Spanish means little to nothing to most of
the members on MT. So seriously, just freakin' speak English. It would greatly
increase the communication and lessen the amount of stupid rippers on MT.

Thank you, and have a wonderful day, here...on MT. =)

To Jinzhou - I normally am a fence-sitter in these kind of cases, because I normally would like to hear both sides, but what you pretty much stated right then and there hammered the final nail towards the pitiful coffin of society today.

Wonderful explanation - though I oppose cuss words. Meh - lol - I can sense your big deal of frustration.

**Chomps on an apple**

I agree with two things completely:

To The Spammers: I see the same comments posted over and over again as well too. I normally would report them and I just had one person do the same thing to me over the guestbook again and again, and I just got sick and tired of the complaining, so I stopped reporting because it would have been tougher on many of the peers here on MT. Good thing this new member who spammed multiple guestbooks was banned. Good for you, mods.

To The Leechers: Scantily clad anime girls, ne? Gosh - I wonder how many people would go view a scan without posting a thank you comment after downloading it. I'm like one of the only few who actually leaves a nice comment behind and appreciates the distribution of the scan, rather than trying desparately hard to find those scans on a different website, tyvm. Of course, probably doesn't make much of a difference, ne? lol

In all cases - thanks for making MT a good site and making it free for many of the people online. I have nothing against it - and I would have gladly donated if I had the chance. More people should respect the mods for what they do around here. Even without 20 of em, you still can't handle a big community like this one all the time, in the first place. ^^ End of story. lol

looks like jin beat me to the punch.

i want to strongly emphasize on those who complain due to scan deletion and comes to "suggestion and complaint" forum to post their woes. while it's true that yes, it is a forum for complaining, but everyone should agree with me when i say that there's way too much of them. futhurmore, about 9/10 of those cases end up in our favor, in which our decision was perfectly correct. because some people do not seem to understand, let me reiterate it all for you guys the fact that i clearly want to get past some of you:
all the staff members have been wallers for over two years. i think we know the difference between low quality scan and high quality scans, more so than a normal person would. if the scan is considered unusuable in a wallpaper, it'll be deleted.

im also very sick of some of those users who feel the necessity to retaliate even more by saying "well, someone and someone posted bad scans! i guess you're going to have to delete 80% of MT now! lol!!!" as much as i want to ban these people down to the bottom of my heart, i must follow the moderator rule of conduct that ive set for myself and pity those idiots who think by saying this, their action is justified. i hope everyone has heard of the famous quotation "two wrongs do not make a right," and i think that phrase works out nicely here. furthurmore, with MT's members increasing by day and night comes a substantial increase in rippers and those who submit duplicates. due to this very simple fact, we cannot possibly cover every submission, and that's why we have the option "Report" on every gallery item, so you can report them and get them taken care of. you all should consider it part of your fault that there are bad quality scans on MT because you do not help us report all of them, and some of you guys are the very ones who upload them.
please dont test the moderators tempers. we do bite, and we have every right to ban someone for being an ass. it's our site after all.

that's all i really want to talk to you about. jin pretty much hit the spot with everything else i wished to discuss.

You wouldn't happen to be a UNIX system admin in hiding, would you? ^^; You've said so much that, with just a touch of modification, I would so like to say to over half my user base (and probably will, when I find a better place to shorten my life and eye sight).

I must admit that I'm a touch guilty - I probably don't leave as much feedback as I should, and I will try to correct that. At the same time, I'm trying not to be one of those who simply says "cool wall!" - there are walls I like, look decent on the desktop, and then there are the outstanding ones - and it's the latter I usually comment on.

I shudder to think what your monthly costs are...just shudder...that's an incredible amount of bandwidth.

All and all, the only people who are going to have a problem with this thread are the people who really should have a problem with it. And that, as the lady in jail would say, is a Good Thing.

This comment brings tears to my eyes.

First I wanna say this, it takes guts to say what so many moderators anywhere want to say. Its about time too because being a moderator is very similar to being a scapegoat.

i cannot stress enough how this should be put into the FAQ, hell this should be shown before people actually sign up for the forum. Gives them not only a good idea of what NOT to do, but gets its point across and prevent any future confrontation.

Anyways I wanted to add my little tid bit (basically what Jin has stated, only just my deal of it) This won't take long......but you know me..

Server Issue: Alright, I really can't stress much cause mostly people are just concerned of the server slowing down. Course its understandable since it was just upgraded but MT is a growing community. I bet Sheqel can't believe (well if he does believe, the I'm speechless, no one ever predicts their success) how big this place has become. Of course that means issues with the server. I wanna say that things are being taken care of. Only people I've seen talk about the server is just stating that it feels like its slowing down, not bitching about it or anything else.

To be honest compared to the last place I worked at, this loadtime is a godsent. Its simply amazing and even now it blows me away. I still wanna donate heaps of money towards the mods (just for doing their job) and Sheqel (obvious reasons) but me being broke right now doesn't help, so I can only thank them for their work right now. This load time isn't that bad. Imangine this : Waiting close to half an hour for a page to load. Got it? Thats what I use to do at the peak of the membership, keep in mind this was with cable at the time(my old community, 3 yrs ago)....yes it is possible to get a page to take that long to load.... When you think of that and how long it takes MT to load, theres really nothing to think about.

Mods: You see this bullshit everywhere. Everyone wants to be a mod, but when you are one....you have NO idea of how much work you'll be putting in. Depending on the community your work load can range from light, to a living hell. Of course thats not counting the possible emails from members, or death threats because you deleted their precious scan/wall. Look, things are reported by members (sometimes spotted by mods as well) and deleted for a reason. If someone reported something that shouldn't of been, then talk to someone about it. Don't complain that your scan was deleted and you don't know why. You know the rules, so what the hell are you talking about? There is reason behind everything, just a matter of taking in the possiblities of why it happened. The sad part is its over alot of stupid shit most of the time. You gotta understand that just cause you found the wall doesn't mean you can submit it as one. If the scan is already in the gallery and the one you wanna submit is better, talk to the person that submitted it! This are very simple facts that I would of considered to be common sense to people. Mods have a tough life. Try putting yourself in their shoes before you deside to unlease a verbal assult.

Rippers: What can I say..... I don't know if you don't consider it as a crime....but try this... Consider you made something, lets say you wrote a novel. Well what if someone happens to stumble upon it and decides to sell it elsewhere with a different title as their own. Sound fair? No. The sad part is the majority of rippers don't even read the damn rules before they submit. Honestly, if thats the case put the rules out so they have a chance to read them before they sign up. So if it does happen, boom. No excuse for stealing someone elses work. Common I know you can do something on your own. Don't take credit for whats not yours, theres no excuse for it, not even for levels. I consider it just plain theft and let me tell you if anyone ever stole anything of mine, you'd be damn sure to never hear the end of it from me. Be legit and make your own.

Spammers : An ever growing problem with the community growing larger. Once again this is because people are NOT familar with the rules and don't realize that your not suppose to have a casual conversation in the forums. No one wants to help you gain levels, stop putting up stupid topics portaining to that, I'll admit, I have some stupid topics myself. I regret doing them and I regret not thinking before posting, but some people continue to do it.

1. Don't post if you have nothing to add to the comment/topic. Your just wasting time and not helping the person out at all. Its considered spam doing so.

2. I'm starting to see this alot. Don't bring politics or Religion here. I can't stress this enough and I bet some people are wondering "Thats stupid Cy, why not?" Simple. There are two things people take very personally. Those are the two. We all hold our beliefs dear and the last thing needed is offending someone else. Most likely this will still be done....but the majority of crap comes from things that branch off of that (Once again, I know I made a topic called 'Heaven or Hell or Neither' ) try to stay away from those.....

3. Think before you post Wow..... This seems to be a problem... Topics are fun yes......but I'm gonna use something Kast said awhile ago. MT's topics are really.....well rather....stupid to be blunt. Don't post something idiotic, if its a fun game then share it. This also implies looking for topics before posting..... which, even with the search option, people are still failing to do. Common....


4. Don't casual talk Thats spam. Plain and simple, you wanna do that? PM the person or talk to them via Instant message program. Don't go into a topic and start talking with someone. I'm starting to see this more and more on here and its irritating..... It can be understandable if its related to the topic......or even if you comment back on the topic....but if you don't..... don't post. Please.


5. Be original. Its really simple, it doesn't take much to think of something different to type, and its not that hard to think of something to add for comments anywhere. I see people complaining about the 60 char limit. Are you freggin' serious? I bet you could easily shell out a full page on something your interested in. B.S, say what you like about it. Seriously, I really can't understand whats so difficult about forcing out 60 chars. Another feature on this is posting the same thing in the gallery (people I'm sure are familar with the member that pulled this little stunt). One question comes to my mind.... Why?

I won't comment on leechers since Jin really said all I wanted to say.


Non-English speaking members Why are you joining an English community when you can't speak the language.....I really don't get it. Cause you know I try to stay away from things I can't understand simply out of the fact that its kinda stupid to try and understand something I don't..... This is where the majority of the spam comes from. Which is really sad. I'm sure alot of the leeching is comming from here too. Seriously, if you don't know English, try to learn some before you join. It makes things easier for you and for the community, don't look like a moron and end up getting banned instantly.

Thats about all I can really say, once again, thanks Jin.
