I eventually got over it, but then other people started posting new ideas for SC mods, and they received similar treatment. Instead of discouraging them, encourage them. I heard a saying once "Even Einstein was a kid once". This could be translated to "[Insert modder here] was a noob once" I try to provide as much praise to noobs as possible, hoping to conquer the crap they get for having a good idea.
Constructive criticism, take it as you want it... Start out small work larger, most noobs arrive with a massive idea and no clue how to mod and fail; we're only trying to help.

I love Clone Wars and would have posted in that thread, but OH NO somebody didn't like it so they closed it, denying other people the pleasure of discussing it.
I love the fact you quickly jump up in arms, despite the fact you haven't looked very far... there is an open Clone Wars thread. Two were closed (one of which was a fake trailer thread) and one left open, and a request for all Clone Wars related posts to go there.

Observe; here he then further posted Clone Wars threads here and here

The threads were closed as one was a prank, which wasn't funny, and because of the prank, I also closed one other thread and requested discussion of the series to remain in one thread. It really didn't need this drama... Indeed your reaction, to me at least makes me think that your the one taking all this far to seriously... It's only an internet forum.

Keep it up and you'll be squashing brilliant people into the ground. I've considered leaving here many times, but because of my mod I haven't.
Someone posted a question in a thread that I could help him with. So I began to help him. I noticed that it was beginning to drift off topic, so I told him to continue the conversation in PM's. The mods picked that post to infract, saying that it was spam. It is not very wise to post your opinion on anything here because you'll probably get infracted. Oh no, you better not double post even you having something relative to say because you'll be infracted.
Where? If you mean Holowan, it is a technical forum, if you want to discuss ethics, or a TV series, then post in the appropriate forums; Holowan is held kept in check, to make it easier for modders to see relevant posts to their threads.

You do realise that Lucas Forums is a Star Wars internet site, so I'm unsure how this is relevant. If you wish to leave that is entirely your prerogative; however I am sorry if you do want to leave.

Perhaps not revealing your age, would be a good start, and then also a consideration that if you are treated a certain way, it maybe because of how you come across?

And a thought about being banned for posting this, but this needs to be addressed, and if you ban me or edit this post to your own means, you live up to everything I just criticized.
You signed upto certain terms and conditions when you registered for the forums; part of that is obeying forum rules, and remembering things are at the discretion of the Moderators.
