Forum:Jediadam4 Deleting Forum Topics
I'll keep it real simple. I'm not going to suggest what you should punish Jedi with, or whether you should punish him at all. I just thought that this needs to be known by the community.
Recently there has been a wee bit of a scuffle between Jediadam4 and the rest of the CC folks because Jedi apparently likes kicking people for no reason. (Forum:De-rank Whyhavealife)
So I guess when he gets angry that he's de-ranked because of power abuse, he decides to go on the forums and delete several large topics (On the forums, as far as I know, there is no way to replace deleted topics.)

Now, most of the topics were dead and virtually done for, (not that that at all justifies the unnecessary deletions) but two of them were rule threads and one was still very often used.
Like I said, I am not going to suggest what his punishment should or shouldn't be, I just thought that you guys needed to know this.
Comment - I see that Dtm has removed his forum admin rights. I totally agree with this, and I believe Jedi should remain stripped of all user rights. He has showed incredible immaturity and complete disregard for the wiki. --Aburnett (Talk) 19:24, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
I've removed his forumadmin rights as an emergency measure. He seems to be "defacing the wiki as much as [he] can", as a certain former sysop described their actions. He has quit RuneScape, expressed desire to leave, and has no intentions of using the tools properly. If there is consensus to do so, I will restore his forumadminship.

Support permanent removal of rights - This is just completely unacceptable. If I or another sysop decided to randomly delete pages for no reason, we'd be desysopped for sure. The same thing applies here. --LiquidTalk 19:42, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
Comment - I found that he also banned a number of forum users including Aburnett, Dtm142, Liquidhelium, Scimitar77, Sentra246, Stelercus, and Stinkowing. I'll unban those listed, as well as any others who I may have missed. Dtm143 19:48, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
- And here I was thinking the forums were down... --Aburnett (Talk) 21:37, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
Comment and Incredibly Strong Support - He blocked ME? WTF did *I* ever do to him?! EDIT: Oh, and I propose we block him. I'll let you guys decide how long that would be if we do that. --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 20:06, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
- I thought he already was blocked? bad_fetustalk 20:14, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
Support, although I am delighted that he deleted Three Word Story. Flavius47 20:24, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
Support - Per all.21:02, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
Support - Per above. I find it amusing that he banned me from the forums as means of taking out anger.00:13, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
Support de-fadmin - The blocking of people just proved what he was doing was just power abuse and him having tools seems to only be doing harm to the forums and not doing any good.06:54, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
Support - Complete abuse of power. No intent to use them correctly for now, clearly. Also, of those banned, all bar Dtm and Stinkowing supported his deranking13:56, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
Support - By quoting others: He just got angry or so and blocked Liquid just because of his name, as he hasn't even used the forum for time. Deleting topics for self-interest is also unacceptable. Rewlf2 17:26, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
- What? He doesn't like my name? And I haven't just not used the forums for a long time, I've never used them ever. --LiquidTalk 00:01, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
- "Hello, my name is 2He (L)!" 00:04, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

Closing Although it has only been open for a couple of days the facts are clear and Arin/Jedi has offered nothing in the way of defense or an apology to our community. He will remain without forum admin rights as DTM has already removed them.--Degenret01 06:47, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
