Having known Weekly for longer than most people have even been on this site I am very confident that this was just a joking exaggeration. Again no one is going to actually bribe people over something this trivial and Weekly has never attempted to bribe someone in regards to revisions that he was far more personally invested. I think a year ban is a huge overreaction, especially given how dedicated Weekly has been. I do think there have been many situations he could have handled far better though, and understand where some complaints have come from. But this bribing thing is just silly in my opinion.
We took that into consideration. If he had really tried to bribe Bambu with undeniable proof and everything, that would have earned him an infinite ban. The one year is only because of a slim chance that he was not being literal. Bribe aside, desperately asking a calc mod to ignore stuff to skew with calcs and offering anything in return for that (even if not actual money) is still unacceptable behavior.

We also took into consideration that Weekly's behavior lately has been very bad. He straight up lied about getting demoted, making a thread acting like he retired on his own. Lying about Wokistan agreeing with him in DMs to get a CRT accepted, to which Wokistan had to come and expose the lie. It's not simply one issue, plenty other things had been accumulating from a long time. Staying away from the site is the best decision taking his mental health into consideration too.

Honestly it does seems like a joke. I doubt anyone will actually be willing to bribe someone for something trivial like that.
To be honest. It's possibly a joke and I don't see why anyone would bribe for fictional debates makes no sense and he was once a staff so It would have been better to forgive and overlook everything.

I am 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% Weekly has been warned for a lot of shit in the past. Probably a long time coming.

But again, the situation is done, people. We don't need to keep talking about it, it's clogging my notifications with unnecessary drivel.

Damn, this topic should've never been brought up here like that. It's currently a mess with a lot of members saying that it was and wasn't a joke. It doesn't matter what we think, guys, let the staff do their job. Let's chill.

You guys should've just said that he was banned and that's all, it's easy to find out the reason: Weekly doing Weekly things.

Hey, I was at work when the fireworks were happening, I'm not asking for a response to this since the situation has been closed but I feel my perspective is warranted given Weekly's ban revolved around me somewhat.

I didn't take it as a joke. When I said I was mortified he asked, I meant that. It was one of the most shocking, brazen things the man had ever done, in a long line of shocking and brazen things. So, from my point of view, it wasn't a joke. I truly believe he thought he could pay me off. I do support the possibility of an appeal. Hopefully this will make the man see the error of his ways.

Ain't got much else to add. Thanks all for handling it, saves me some work.

I do think some of people who makes edits are new and not aware how things work here so either make the profiles closed so no one cannot make an edit without permission or send a message to those guys to know what they should do

I know I'm late to the decision and it was agreed to stop being talked about. I do agree that the bribery incident was extremely unruly and uncalled for; ban worthy even. And I do agree with both sides regarding the joke example; seriousness would honestly make it a permaban worthy offense while at the same time, "Being a joke" has never been a good excuse for such extreme levels of it. Especially if the individual is uncomfortable with jokes like that. Also, I think Weekly is more so the type who misunderstands things rather than intentionally lies, so I agree with what Ryukama did say on other situations.

People who've known Weekly for years can vouch that he is or at least used to be a really nice person who tries to work hard on everything he is passionate about, and it's no secret that the excessive borderline cyberbullying and harassment he got from a lot of users in the past, including but not limited to a certain former Admin who's been permabanned from the wiki since early 2018 which was also continued by his numerous follows, has done some long term damage to his phycology. Now is he at fault? There is truth that he is obviously more sensitive than necessary, and also tends to exaggerate when other staff members and regular users are mistreating him especially as of late. He did not deserve to be demonized they way he seems to get from the community as of late. Though that still does not excuse his numerous actions. So while he's clearly not innocent by any means, and nothing excuses some of those recent events, he isn't entirely without merits. Though his attempt to defend himself was weak and he didn't apologize for the confusions if he was joking. And given Bambu was the one being bribed, it's his interpretation was important and he did not consider it a joke.

Ryukama may have a point that a year might be excessive, 3 to 6 months might have been a bit more reasonable. But a temporary ban is indeed justified. Anyway, I apologize for going back to that topic, but I just wanted to give my thoughts on the situation.

that is nice and all, but considering how Weekly's conduct in VSBW was universally described to me by people working with him as a lier, a fraud, someone who litterally refuses to bring evidence and hides it from other people in CTR servers, who makes exaggerated and outlandish claims about every other day, and also not to talk of how he's egocentric enough to have a gravity field and has always been very provocative to other people, and all in all generally a huge pain to deal with ...

Not to be rude to you Dark, but that there seems like a fabriation to make him look better than he really is

And out of all the years I've seen of Weekly and all he's done in regards to VS, I can attest to the complete opposite. But what you say is why it's hard to pin him down, and why it's been this difficult to ban him until now.

I've spoken to the dude, both in chat and on voice. He's fine. A literal normal dude. But, ONLY when it's not focusing on VS.

He's been purposefully misleading, outright lying on revisions. Aggressive, a consistent annoyance, stubborn as a rock. And now this.

He's done and out. I know we get accused of staff bias a lot, and a lot of it is bull. But this is one consistent and reliable example. It is fact that we've been too lenient. Well that, and Weekly's been conducting most of this shit off site so it's hard to track it.

I'd honestly say a 1 year ban is completely warranted. That's my two cents.

One year ban, some of the things I've seen him say leading up to this leads me to really believe he and the wiki would be better off without each other, until he can change his attitude for the better. Something I don't think he'd get from continuing to stay here given whats quite literally been said above me here.

Not really report-worthy, but it is without a doubt unnecessary. Maybe like, the tiniest of warnings is warranted, idk.

I think that it was just one of his friends here who was upset about that Weekly did this to himself, given that they asked him for his Discord identity.

That may be the case, but I do believe maybe just letting them know not to beat a dead horse would be warranted. There's no real punishment here.

People have been doing more lengthy and severe beratings of Weekly in this thread than just calling him a dummy who fucked up.

Shit happens, people fuck up, other people say stupid shit. Things happen, Ant. And people get aggressive. This isn't a punishment. Weekly is already banned, no point in beating a dead horse and commenting on his profile meaninglessly.

Yes, but it isn't warning worthy for a friend of his to express disappointment.

It isn't a warning. It's literally a friendly reminder. Just don't do meaningless stuff, it's not strict, it's not even a warning. People should spend their time more meaningfully, and not comment on a banned guy's profile.

I am not commenting on the matter again, mostly because I could be doing literally anything else. But just a friendly note: Spend your time wisely. Don't talk to someone who can't hear you or respond. You can be doing other stuff, and that stuff is probably more important than meaningless drivel.

Take my advice to heart, and have a good night everyone.
