Default Foo'bar banned

Dear community,

when I wanted to see today in the early morning after the news in the official 1C forum, I had to find out that I have been banned for the next two months. One takes amiss of it me that I had dared the day before to leave a melancholy comment in an already older thread.

What is no big thing under normal circumstances, seems to have provided in view of the at the moment ruling excitement for a considerable mess among the forum visitors and prompted my highly respected mod collegues to hectic actionism. Obviously my contribution has provided for so a lot of confusion and restlessness under blind and unreflective after the hotly desired patch craving leisure pilots that one felt exciting to have to lock out even a honorable and long-standing Additional 3D Developer from Cliffs of Dover about for a long time from this forum.

Now, I take the affair with humor and will use my suddenly gotten spare time to create high-class railroad and building models also furthermore, for public good here in the Il-2 community, even for those which had demanded so energetically my distance from the 1C forum.

In the end, we want everything only one thing: the best combat flight simulator.

And now, mods, feel free to ban even this second account for having multiple ones. This will be my first and last post with Mexxoft identity.

See you in two months. I have to work. For you. Check for regularly updates at Foo'blog.

Foo'bar aka Mexxoft aka Peter F. Schaller
Additional 3D Developer for Il-2 Sturmovik Series.

PS: Please excuse this rather bad translation, it would be easier to me to express myself in my native language.

PSPS: If somebody has downloaded an old patch because of me, has installed and has destroyed his well-oiled CloD installation with it, then I'm honestly sorry. This wasn't my intention - although some new habitants of my increased ignore list seem to know exactly what my intentions were.

Foo, Mexx - not sure how many accounts I have but some got banned in the kil- eh moderation spree. Since you need an account to view attachments you should always have a new one ready though.

Now that we have moderators who promote ignore lists and actually use them themselves (not sure how they're able to moderate using ignore lists...) it makes me wonder what the staff defines as "moderate" and "moderation" anyways. But I guess there's just no one better around willing to do the job.

The irony is that there's simply no real "care" taking place. I mentioned a long time ago that tons of useless threads are pinned. Much of the confusion, which obviously even resulted in bannings, could've been avoided by actually cleaning old stickies, adjusting thread names properly and only sticking the IMPORTANT and NEW posts. And gathering up rules and infraction info and ignore list how-to's and other "important" messages in in one simple sticky post.

Only time will tell if we will ever see a forum index that doesn't require a monitor in portrait mode to actually see the threads and not just stickies...

Like I posted here:


I'm not in favor of you being banned as one of the few here that actually has participated in making CloD the stepping stone for future children that will get a better birth than their mother!

S! /Mazex

P.S But it was a bit childish - and you know it Me and most of the regular forum members here have done a lot more childish stuff here though

Moderators, Foo'bar developed the train models and some of the buildings modelled in CoD.
Please lift the ban. It's important we don't lose the developers of this game!

Foo'bar - We'll wake you in 2 months

It's unfortunate that you chose to bring back an old thread like that when it would have been more appropriate to create a new thread stating the same fact.

It wasn't what you said it was that you brought back an old thread at a time when everyone is on edge about a pending beta.

I am disppointed that I had to ban you but it was appropriate, if it were anyone else they would have been equally treated, especially since the intent was taken as malicious whether intended or not, the damage was done to innocent users installations. You used very poor judgement and must pay the price.

I appreciate what youve done for the il2 community but this was not a minor infraction and we all need to be kept to the standard we want to maintain regardless of our position in the community.

In sincerity all the best in your projects until you return, and we look forward to your return with better judgement on what passes as humor in the future.
"I need a Figgy Duff"... yep that just about sums it up!
