Demote Circy sign now

In the past several years the topic of the need for a petiton for this purpose has arisen several times as a result of Circy's behaviour. Recently a joke petition of a similar nature was created, which has inspired us to write this one: there are a number of us that agreed to sign such a thing months ago.

We feel that Circy's moderatorship is a chaotic and disruptive element on TDC, more than any troll or fake account could ever be.


1. He abuses his power. More than once he has banned users without giving sufficient reason, apparently often as a result of personal grudges, or using matters outside the scope of TDC as his 'reasons'. Due to the size and importance of TDC in the community he is able to use his moderator powers as a weapon outside the site, and does so.

Example:
- (Circy threatens to ban Phizzy for something that happened outside of TDC, and for something Phizzy did not do. Note that Clickzine is NOT a part of TDC, despite Circy's apparent desire to annex it. Source: http://www.create-games.com/forum_post.asp?id=166630&s=90 [not publicly accessible]) http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/7682/circpet2zh6.gif

2. He frequently lies to users in relation to his abuse of power. For example, last time Phizzy was banned (that is, the time before this one), he claimed in a forum post he had nothing to do with the ban. Later when it was revealed that he was a driving force in the ban, the thread was mysteriously deleted.
This sort of thing is not uncommon, as most of us older users have seen.

Example:
- (Circy claims the joke petition was a reason for a ban, despite it not having been created until AFTER the ban. Source: http://www.clickzine.net/?p=71#comments ) http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/5928/circpet1rr6.gif

3. His attitude is unprofessional. Aside from the previously-mentioned abuse of power, his periodic temper tantrums not only cause distuptions for which other users would be warned, but they also signal minefield periods in which users can be banned for disagreeing with him in any way. While we appreciate the pressures he faces as a homosexual, this sort of behaviour is unsuitable for a moderator on a large website.

Unfortunately, as his rants often result in a flamewar, they end up being 'sanitised' by other moderators or Circy himself eventually. TDC Search reveals snippets in [deleted post]s, but intact examples have proved difficult to locate.


We hope the upper TDC administration will take this as a serious request for something that has been necessary for a long time. Short of de-modding it would be preferred that he conduct himself in a mature and responsible fasion, however he has over several years proved himself incapable, and unfortunately discussing this on the TDC forums would result merely in thread deletion.

We belive there is therefore no alternative but for Circy, moderator of The Daily Click, to be stripped of his powers.
