Hello,

Could someone please unlock my post in...

Oddly enough that was my first post. Usually it bans you if you post a lot or try and change a post. This one closed my post and banned me on my first post in a couple weeks. Someone needs to tweak the ban algorithm.


that said, thanks

Going offtopic is against the rules and might cause the deletion of some of your posts. There are times moderators make mistakes by closing a thread instead of another or by locking and linking a thread to another that has nothing to do with it.

Of course I'll be pleased if you come up to show me where I have made a mistake, but when it's done inside that particular thread it becomes a hot mess. Offtopics can't be tolerated, so I myself must be cautioned.

So if you have complaints about anything you don't find good or you think there are errors that need to be corrected, use this thread to get in touch with me, Otherwise send me an e-mail and I'll fix the problem as soon as I can.

my e-mail is michelin89mod@ymail.com 

As the titile suggests a new function has been added to this thread, so for any notice and to legitimate your thread, please post the link here and I'll guarantee for you.
there should be an Avenue whr u can see names of those who like ur post or comment

It depends on the person who includes the pictures. Nairaland has a picture insertion feature using the link to the image and it has to be inserted properly for the picture to display properly. If it is not, the picture will not reflect properly.

I want to piece of advise if taken though on the banning of people on any of the platform here on nairaland. I was reading through @LordAdam7 view on him being banned for five months. However, considering a germane point he raised on the identity he use on this platform for so many transaction,which might hurt his connection. Based on this do I suggest, instead of outright banning, which may lead some people to exit this platform. I am even looking at some people who perhaps were pioneer members that had LEFT for good because of being banned. Irrespective of the age, people can be passionate about a view held so strong and can go off track, doesn't mean a negative thinker today cannot be a positive thinker, another day. So, I will advise to punish anyone in a milder way to have more and sustained followers . For instance, you can tell such personality to tender an online apology to the forum as well as to the offended in such a way that there is a compile lists of the offended,whom apology are tendered towards . God bless you on your effort.

Thank you for the mention.

Personally, if I knew a mod would view my submissions as an ethnic insult I wouldn't have bothered replying in the thread.

Anyone can read that thread to see the intellectual discussions that have been made that wouldn't have occurred if someone with valuable input had just skipped the thread.

For the record, I know I've skipped many threads for the simple reason that I didn't want a mod to take my reply out of context and deliver a harsh ban.

It's killing the quality of discussions that happen on NL, and I'm not sure Seun cares as much about the quality of discussions on NL as he wants us to believe. Else he'll reign in on the bots he employed as Moderators, who no offense, have displayed as much intelligence as three-month old toddlers.

The majority of NLs may be content viewing memes and epic clap backs and populating populist threads. And if I'm in Seun's shoes, I'd obviously focus more on this demography. But there is a significant percentage of NLs that are here to learn a lot more than whether Adaeze Yobo is exercising or if Davido's sister is pregnant.

These people need an insulated environment where their intellectual views are protected from the rancor of mindless moderation.

And if Seun can't cater to this small segment of people who enrich NL in their little way and improve the diversity of an 11 yr old NIGERIAN (not pan-Yoruba or pan-Progressives or pan-whatever) forum, then Seun should be bold enough to say so. And let people like me know I'm only coming here to check out the currency thread. And if I want to join communities where intellect is protected and promoted, I head elsewhere.

What can I say?
There was a time anything I posted earned me a ban. I decided to leave Nairaland at that time, enough was enough. Even when I received an email message from the Mod I made up my mind to concentrate on twitter. Can't remember the topic that brought me back but since coming back, I stopped using my other username.
Seriously, Nairaland is now populated by 2go kids, no more robust debates, quality of Frontpage news have suffered in the process. I sure hope Nairaland don't end up like myspace, I've been here too long to pray for its demise. Something needs to be done urgently.

Everyone has his/her own tale it appears.

But you can see how much regard the Administration has concerning this issue that has been bandied about for a long time by numerous NLs.

Zero! To three replies.

In their defense, maybe they're cooking up a valid response. But then, if it took less than 5 minutes for my main account to be sent to 5 months ban because of a false positive, then when a complaint is raised I expect their reaction to be just as swift.

Because I know if it was an advertiser raising a complaint here, the advertiser will get a quick response + an apology for the short delay. When it comes to profiting from the platform it's a priority, but when it comes to sustaining the quality of the forum, it can wait for another day, week, month, year, decade, who bloody knows!

Maybe, they're waiting for a person to become a neo-activist who'd go around threads calling out people who felt they've been unfairly banned during their stay on NL to come share their experience here. I guarantee Seun, this thread will literally be a mile long when the replies start flowing. And then they'd have to do damage control.

I don't think it's worth it tho'. Y'd I want to do that when the same Administration has shown crass disregard for the forum.

I've learned a lot and met a lot of nice people who have impacted me positively on NL. So, it's sad watching a forum with so much potential fall through the seams without any stop-gap measure. Very sad!

LordAdam7 i agree with you. I get banned unfairly for soo many trivial things which some others don't get banned for.
I later got to realise (from a friend I made online who happens to be a friend of a "powerful" MOD ) that he has ppl who he no dey think twice to ban if they flout the rules.
At a time I got banned for speaking French, while the lady with whom I conversed walked freely.
That's how button happy the MODs are to ban those not in their good books.
As mentioned already, I'm primarily here to get informed , however I have encountered one or two wonderful persons. So for me, its win win. Forget about an uprising, no one would give a hoot if a thousand users bail out on NL, for the admin, they have a million, so a thousand makes no difference.

Just about now, some silly mod deleted two of my posts on two different threads.

The naijalander guy that was posting relevant Yoruba history had his non-offensive post deleted.

Whether it is some bot or some ban-happy mod, I'm unsure.

But it's important to spread awareness, and let them know we aren't oblivious to what is happening.

I'll be more of a spectator henceforth. NL is not worth it.

PREAMBLE: African Beauty and Brain Pageant (ABBP) is a beauty pageant model initiative aimed at discovering young beautiful damsels in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. In the entertainment world, we see pageantry as the “BIBLE” of the industry because of it uniqueness in bringing out the very best from any young ambitions damsel who is passionate about being a beauty queen.
Let’s consider the compositions of an African Beauty, the dark Skin, Shot Virgin hair, big flat nose, smooth lips, full figure, big hips and backside.
Sincerely speaking, there is no beauty like Africa beauty, our skin tone, the richness of our figure are distinct in all of the world.
In this rich culture background heritage a young woman can only achieve this with a sense of humor (the brain).
In the quest of searching for ABBP’s AMBASSADOR, character, attitude, power of creativity and positive thinking capacity as well as intellect are needed to be seen in the life of whosoever that shall emerges as overall winner of Miss African Beauty and Brain Pageantry 2013 and beyond.
PRIMARY AIM: First we need to accept that a person can be beautiful but has no capacity for thinking, planning and executing any project. Therefore in a programme of this hue we intend to
Discover young people specifically “Females” who are beautiful enough with brains to sustain what they have to Impact to others, with age bracket 18 – 28 years and 5.7ft.
To give hope to the hopeless, because we know quite well that most of the beautiful young girls with brains are children from very poor backgrounds where they enjoy little or no social advantage.
To use this platform to enlighten our young African sisters to shun immoral practices/pageants organized essentially for profit not necessarily to give the right exposure, rather this initiative will thus help the participants to embrace decent life style that can easily portray them as role model for the younger ones to emulate.
To bring young women of African ancestry under one umbrella, to create a platform for them to address issues affecting their lives, communities, religion countries and African as a whole.
IT also aims at highlighting the rich cultural background heritage of various participating countries while placing great emphasis on Africa’s attributes and lifestyle in those countries.

Our Current Miss African beauty & brain Queen
Osabo Maureen graduated from Nasarawa state university, Keffi. B.sc accountancy!

WE ALSO GROOM YOUNG WOMEN AND ASSIST THEM IN ACHIEVING THERE CAREERS AS PROFFESIONAL MODELS!!

Who banned my LordAdam7, LordAdam8, and LordAdam10 monikers?

This was my first post with LordAdam7 moniker. It shows that my LordAdam main account ban was an oversight by an overzealous mod:

LordAdam7:
Because the Yoruba people are AFONJAS.

Abi r u not reading the history with open eyes? Can't u see the many flagrant instances of treachery by fellow Yoruba people on their comrades after being coerced by their former slaves turned masters?

Is it any surprise that Tinubu after repackaging Buhari is receiving the same treachery from his fellow Yoruba comrades coerced by the same people that came begging caps in hands? Or even that Tinubu revolted against Southern interests for his purely selfish agenda of becoming the sole power in the region, only to be hackneyed by the same monster he created?

It is the same thing that happened between Akintola and Awolowo.

Yorubas are AFONJAS. They're back-stabbers, treacherous, and treasonous. Of course, it is immodest to generalize, but the trait is undeniably strong especially amongst the elites, and even more so amongst the hoi polloi.

How I wish the Obas in Benin during this period were not so vile, wicked, and lacking sufficient ambition. Bini would have successfully routed many Yoruba towns, especially Eko and Ikoyi, because the Yorubas would not have been able to put up a united front, seeing as they alternated between fighting themselves and becoming fodder to the rampaging Fulani cavalry.

These were interesting times indeed, and it is indeed entertaining to ponder on the number of death proportional to the population that occurred weekly during the raids, battles, massacres, and carnage. Many innocents falling due to the ego or stupidity of their lords.

Makes you value the fact you weren't born in those times, but now that we have Geneva conventions, and war crime parlance pervading the polity of the modern world.

Who is the very STUPI.D and UNINTELLIGENT moderator who banned my account (https://www.nairaland.com/lordadam) because of the reply above the line on a history thread.

Let the BAST.ARD come here and maintain an intelligent discussion let NLs settle the scores.

I dare you FOO.L.

I'm talking about a trait that was well elucidated by Samuel Jackson and even revealed in modern times and the cry baby who cannot stomach criticism dare to ban my account for 5 months. What temerity?

Outside of NL can you police opinions because they are not favorable to you. In fact, who are you?

I was about to reply naijalander's civil reply with an explanation, and I discovered what the ethnic coward had done.

Yorubas are educated, brilliant, and proud people, but they are also treacherous. Every tribe has that one bad trait. The Igbos may be intelligent, formidable, and astute businessmen, but they are cunny. The Fulanis may be efficient organizers and very patient, but they are utterly vindictive.

If I cannot critique an historical piece about one of the big 3 tribes in Nigeria on the largest NIGERIAN forum, where can I do so without boundaries?

What has NairaLand turned into?

Seun, Lalasticlala, I need answers. How dare you guys hand over the baton of policing intellectual topics to a bunch of unintelligent, quack neophytes with irresponsible ethnic bias.

I'm livid is an understatement. This is not the politics section, it is the culture section for crying out loud!

I need my main account to be unbanned, I could care less what happened in 18th century Yorubaland, I use that account to conduct trades on this platform.

-Lord

And even after I posted my complaint on the complaint thread, no mod or Admin responded; but clearly they recognized the fault line and didn't axe my account.
