Demigod is owned by Gas Powered Games and not Stardock who is just the Publisher.
Huh???? And? The forums for DG are apart of the greater forum structure of the Stardock forums. Stardock own the Demigod forums.
GPG has nothing to do with users rights on the forums. And SD are somewhat more than just the publisher....
Your point please?
They should be notified if it happens though.
Why? Brad owns these forums..there is no free speech or right to anything as has been pointed out ad nauseam.
If a user who has been subjected to some form of restriction on the forums and can't figure out the what and the why as to what has happened then that is their problem, not Stardocks.
Would you give someone being rude in your house reasons as to why you want them to leave?
Interesting thread. A point the Op may wish to know and pass on is that the Demigod forums are linked to around 12 other forums that are all under the Stardock banner. I'm posting from galciv2.com for an example. So what may be acceptable or unacceptable on one forum structure may well not be the case in another part of the network. Without knowing your friends post that caused his demotion i could no offer much of an example, he may have posted in the OT section on Demigod.com thinking his post was suited as such, but it would then be available to 12 different site, all with their own idea of what is accepted, as set by Brad and the mods. Nevertheless, he...you..i are not entitled to, by any rights or laws anything on the forums.
Posting is a privilege and the manner that we conduct ourselves is held to the standard of the private owner of the forums. If he doesn't like what we have to say....off we go.
If we don't like that, then we can choose not to post.
