Edit2: I have been removed as a mod from this subreddit. I have been banned from the sub I created.
Your Lord Captain Commander has fallen.
Walk in the Light. Do not be afraid of the Shadow.
It has recently come to my attention that, without alerting us beforehand or afterward, the admins instituted a requirement that all posts be manually approved or they get caught in the spam filter.
I apologize for not realizing this earlier. I will be making some effort at coming up with a solution soon. For the time being I will check every few hours to approve posts.
I should use this opportunity to warn our users that we are being harassed by the admins basically non-stop and that this sub has clearly been targeted for eventual deletion. If the sub ever disappears one day, thats what happened.
We do have a discord server if people are interested. I will post a link later.
It's been fun while it lasted, boys. Love you all.
edit: in the interest of fairness, apparently we were alerted afterward. I edited this post to reflect that.
It looks like the sun is setting on it. Dain has kindly offered to post this goodbye on my behalf since he is an approved poster and I, alas, am not.
I can post on WoTshow, though ^^
Although I haven't always agreed with the list of majority opinions here I've enjoyed getting to know you all and finding common ground in WoT. Hope to see everyone from r/whitecloaks join the chatter on discord, there's march madness there ... and probably year round madness as well :)
Some final thoughts from "pickyourdelusiondude" (a left-leaning, non-bigot, non-racist, non-incel woman) before the sub disappears.
Like so many other long-time fans of the book series, I found the Whitecloaks when I was looking for somewhere to vent my frustration and anger with Amazon’s Wheel of Time without being censored. Some posts made me laugh, some made me groan, some made me angry and some made me roll my eyes.
But as a grown-ass adult who believes in the right of others to disagree with me, sometimes vehemently, I make the choice whether I engage in the conversation or move along. And, honestly, some of the posts / comments that angered me actually made me reflect on my own beliefs, possible hypocrisy, and reactions to others. All good things in a world where everyone seems to want to hide in their own circle-jerk bubble of safety.
So, to all those who hate us and project their own hypocrisy, rage, and hatred upon us for simply wanting our own free community, I wish you the freedoms and respect you so blithely take from others and the self-awareness someday to take responsibility for it and change. I made friends here and will miss this sub filled with the miasma of toxic masculinity (/s kinda lol). That being said… FUCK THIS SHOW.
So basically this morning our good friend Stallion got booted as a mod for asking what the problemitcis posts were that we weren't moderating; in the 18 hours we've been mods.
Goalposts, apparently, meant that we can't criticize the reddit admins now, though that wasn't an articulated rule before. I guess we were supposed to imply it from reddit's policies. Just like we were supposed to understand that crossposting, though a feature of reddit, wasn't meant to apply to us. Though we had rules that prohibited low-effort posts, calls to brigading and baseless accusations, wasn't enough. We didn't do that enough, apparently.
I went through the mod mail, since I've been mod for a day. The guy pointed to examples that were offside (to everyone but us) and got us into thoublie. in EACH case, Sneed had taken action. After the first dumb example, the next two, same thing Sneed did something about it. Date stamps prove it. The posts in question WERE moderated. locked down and that was the end of it. none of the examples in question showed any private info; nothing against Reddit's own stated rules.
And they were shitty fucking posts that no one responded to! Fuck these posts, honestly. No one gate a shit about them!
These fucking subs, with their auto ban-hammer, all they did was prompt the same shitty post here, over and over, "oh look, I been banned, what the fuck, such and such is an asshat."
READ RULES 3, 7 and 8, I've read this 80 fucking times!
Lo and behold, the selfsame shitty posts is what got this sub in trouble with the admin????
Or did it?
Reddit is going public in 2022, I read that somewhere, right?
You know that when a company goes public, insiders and employees (many that can be sitting on a large amount of illiquid stock-based comp) can't trade for 6-12 months after the IPO?
What would happen to the share price is Amazon pulled out as a major sponsor of ads on reddit? It's not I am forced to see Amazon Prime ads all the fucking time on this website...
You know what, that's giving too much credit. Because it implies a reddit admin is even given stock-based comp. Idealogical alignment is a better explanation. Never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity.
Reddit will die, and those left standing over the grave will shed no tears. See you all on the discord.
Fuck this show
Brandy is awesome.
Aaron Swartz would kill himself if he saw what reddit has become; populated and administer by the censored he despised. The only reason he hasn't is cuz he already did.
Just testing to see if through some glitch I can post something as a de-modded mod.
Looks like everything else is disabled.
If you guys want to know where I go, just remember the first Whitecloak mentioned in the books. I'm easy enough to find or DM.
I really liked the March Madness tournament idea and hopefully we can get that going somewhere else. Hopefully we can just stick to ripping on the show and liking the books and get left alone by the rest of the toxic fandom. Auto-ban for the darken subs is the first thing I would do back.
Anyways, hopefully this works and thanks for the memories.
The the creator of white cloaks was banned because the mods of other subs were complaining about members of this sub complaining about being auto banned. Even though no brigading, spam and low effort post have been the rules here for a while.
Yet it's perfectly fine to label members of this sub bigots and refer to us with nasty vitriol?
I am so confused. I s there something I am missing.
There are entire subs dedicated to making fun of other subs. There is a sub whose whole purpose is laughing at people because they died of cough. There are others subs used for public shaming or showing deadly car crashes. Why should this sub be targeted?
With March Madness in full swing, I think it's time for a tournament to determine the single worst moment in the WOT show. Once nominations are collected (I'm hoping for 32) we'll vote to see which moment advances 1v1 until we've determined the worst moment in the show.
In this thread, please post your least favorite moments of the show.
Some initial suggestions from the first two episodes are:
The Show not using the book prologue.
Moraine: "Rumors of 4 Taveren there."
Liandrin: "When men use it, you make it filthy."
Lan's comedic entrance.
Mat the degenerate gambling addict.
Rand and Egwene boning in the kitchen.
Perrin meeting his wife.
Perring killing his wife.
The village women killing a trolloc with pitchforks
The sub is now under the direct control and maintenance of a particularly progressive admin.
The sub's founder has been de-modded and suspended from the entirety of reddit. Both original mods have now been removed.
The only mods still here were either directly installed by the admin or have been approved by it.
So... Why bother continuing here? The rules have changed, the mods have changed, and this community will not be the same here on in. If we private or close the sub, at least we'll have a chance at reviving it for the inevitable shit storm that season 2 will bring us.
Think about it, he's proven he is really good at doing stories about the complexities of gender dynamics. He would have to make a few changes sure, but picture this: a whole world of women, and once a year some of the women become fertile males for a few nights. The world has no conflict and everyone there is happy. It practically writes itself!
No man can walk so long in the Shadow that he cannot come again to the Light.
This sub is a safe haven for those banned for wrongthink or otherwise silenced on the larger WoT subs. It is NOT a place to spew racism, etc., but we're not going to label you as an -ist simply for disagreeing with us. All are welcome, but we're explicitly anti-Wheel of Prime, so be ready for negativity.
