Exclamation another Bear post. Troll 101

LOL yes yes i am back again ... well i never really left folks i wish that everyone would realize this ... the mods dont always interact and sometimes we try to keep things behind the sceens with a PM or two .... occasionally we will remind folks to report a trashy post or a suspected troll ..... but sometimes....... oh just sometimes members forget and start making rude replies back to the trouble maker.... sometimes they miss the obvious little hints that one is really trying to make you respond... sometimes a person is just too weak and lets this mystical troll take over and have power.....

so i will take this time to have a little Troll 101 class.... there will be explanations.....the occasional picture to assist in your learning pleasure and the most important part is - I want member participation!!! Yes folks, YOU will help ME teach the class ... here are the rules:

1. you must give an example and explanation of troll like behavior
2. you must give at least 1 example of how NOT to handle the troll
3. you must give 2 correct methods to handle the troll
4 you may NOT AT ANY TIME use a real member as an example (NO NAMES) you may always call your troll Baby Bear (aww my child LOL)
5. you must make this fun and not a hate thread...

so class in a little bit i will post more on this topic. until then feel free to explore old threads and get ideas.... look at some of my other "Troll School" threads...

oh and one other thing.... do not bring up recent trolls who are no longer with our wonderful site.

ok class here is segment #1

Babby Bear writes: hey i wanna know what goes good with my fish? bar-b-q or just salt and peper?

now the usual responce is something like this
person x: oh thats awful you are a troll
personxx: hey stop being mean you make me sick
personxxx: i wish i could ban you....

etc etc etc..
thats all wrong the best way to handle this is
think to yourself...

op_is_a_troll_trollcat.jpg

then hit the very handy report button on the left side of the post

now the moderating team can go in and ban the person with out all the need to remove your hard thought provoking posts.....

also lets be honest if a cat is out side and you feed it it returns every day... same for trolls....

Baby bear: My friend the 'breeder' says I can keep 3 bettas in a quart jar with a monthly pellet and a water change once a year.
Inappropriate response: OH MY GOD! GET THOSE BETTAS OUT OF THAT JAR! YOU ARE BEING CRUEL!!!!!!!!
Correct way #1: Say nothing. Nothing! Nothing! and report!
Correct way#2: Sometimes you can hijack the thread for your own fun? That's what I would do but Bear might give me a ruler whack for that. Something like, I like pizza! Who likes pizza!? :P

Resist this urge...

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

ok so here we have a good example of what has happened recently here and you make a good point... once some info is offered and the person is obviously not taking good advice or are really making post just to get a rise out of you yeah report it and go off topic is IMHO a good way to avoid feeding and thy often leave on there own (as seen in the example this came from)

hehehe... I'm guilty of feeding trolls

anywho BabyBear example: My betta fish bit its tail and looked ugly so I let my cat eat it.... Now I want another betta in my 1/2 gallon tank, which one is better? *posts two pictures of beautiful aquabid fish*

typical response1 : You horrible person! D:< How dare you do that?! Do you call yourself a human?
Typical response 2: That was horrible, and you really need to know more about bettas. They require a heater and a minimum of 2 gallon tanks *insert more betta care basics*

Best response: PM a mod, or click the alert button that looks like this [!] .... or just ignore the thread completely~

BearWithFish, I love that cat picture!

1 Hamster

Baby Bear: I have my male and female bettas in a 2 gallon bowl. The female is on the bottom not moving and she has horizontal stripes so I know she's ready to breed.Why won't my male build a bubblenest and why is my female on the bottom? The petstore dude said they could live together. "
Bad response: "What are you, STUPID??? Any moron knows that males and females can't live together! Only a dumb (you know what) would keep their bettas in a 2 gallon bowl with no heater!! Bettas are tropical fish and NEED a temperature of 78-82 degrees! Do some more research before getting a betta!!!"
Proper response: Males and females shouldn't be housed together except for breeding purposes only. The male is probably harrassing the female and she's probably stressed. Horizontal stripes mean that your female is stressed. I would suggest that you separate them and give them each their own home.I'm sure they would be much happier. Good luck with your fish! "
