The Mandalorian : 'MikeLuv80 / JSteven / ForceGhostRecon & Many Other Socks' edit

This topic has been locked by a moderator.

Mod Edit: It has come to the moderators attention that JSteven is also previously banned members ForceGhostRecon & Mikeluv80 - and many, many other socks - to which FGR has himself admitted.

He made homophobic slurs - in a personal attack vs another member in 2016 - for which he was banned at the time - yet has repeated more homophobic slurs of late in his other sock accounts.

Do NOT ask for links to any of his projects on the OriginalTrilogy•com - thank you.

 

Edit: Obviously… MikeLovullo/FGR/JSteven and his many continuing socks just cannot stay away from here (despite being repeatedly banned, informed such actions are viewed as harassment - and the authorities being informed) - yet still returns to make more sock accounts and bizarre posts. This, despite many members knowing his real life identity - from before he deleted his various social media platforms - and started charging $20 on his site to ‘cover costs’.

 


 

JSteven posted:

I have a new feature-length fanedit of The Mandalorian. The runtime is about 120 minutes and once a few things were moved around, it plays out surprisingly complete! This edit turned the first 3 (and part of 4) episodes into a cohesive story about the meeting and unlikely bond formed between a hardened Mandalorian bountyhunter and a unexpected ‘baby’ bounty.

The following contains spoilers from The Mandalorian…

  • Color corrected - saturated color a bit
  • Rearranged intro logos - added Mando score
  • Added Mando score to a few spots
  • Most of EP1 intact
  • Rearranged the trek across the desert, getting attacked by other boutyhunters along the way
  • Cut Jawas
  • Cut Nick Nolte’s character helping Mando get back to his ship - now he just treks across the desert to get back to his ship
  • added sunset transition footage and color corrected to match next scene
  • the two end up walking up and over a ridge and end up in a plain surrounded by mountains - the Mando decides (albeit reluctantly) to check out a cave in one of the mountains (possible shortcut to the other side?) and encounters the rhino monster on the way
  • Cut Nick Nolte’s character from the desert planet take-off
  • Once they take off, baby yoda plays with the lever knob and then the Mando puts him back in his basket, only to have him come out again when he’s not looking and start playing with buttons (edited 2 scenes together to make one) - really works perfectly and sets up the payoff at the end
  • Mando returns baby for bounty (exhibiting a suppressed concern for it’s fate)
  • Mando upgrades armor and in the process, remembers his own childhood as other Mandalorians engage him about their code and past. Subsequently, he has a growing concern for the child bounty he just delivered
  • Mando is about to leave the planet and sees the lever and decides to rescue baby
  • Mando rescues baby
  • Mando shoots his way off the planet
  • Climax of the movie is the Mando support squad that shows up for the big shootout
  • Ends with Mando giving baby Yoda the lever knob
  • The two ride off into the sunset… ehem space

I have this edit complete and ready for anyone interested in checking it out, PM me for link.

New cuts based on feedback:

  1. cut ‘evacuate thorax’ line
  2. cut heavy artillery mando jetpack salute
  3. added new ending score featuring mando theme with incorporated star wars cues… it’s amazing.

Sooo I’m guessing JSteven was forceghostrecon?

This guys has been one of the best editors out there. I wish this could be worked out.

The time for him to work it out was before he created a sock account in direct violation of the forum rules…and definitely before he did that multiple times over (his ForceGhostRecon account was a sock to circumvent a ban).

a trolling bantha

@oojason How did you know JSteven was ForceGhostRecon all along?

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

It would seem he did not know until recently.

If you are asking how the moderators may be able to identify socks on here, surely you cannot expect him to tell us?

Tighten Up and then turn it all the way up to 11!

Soooo, question. If you do something that got you banned, is there any sort of appeals process to maybe get you unbanned?

What Biggs said. We had our suspicions, yet we gave JSteven the benefit of the doubt - we do like to be sure when it comes to banning members, and it is not something taken lightly.

Anyone can make a case as to why they believe they should not be banned (or that we’ve made a mistake etc) - and the moderators will consider it.

Though as mentioned above, the mods do not take banning anyone on here lightly.

To get banned from this place does take some doing…
 

Usually you have to be troll, spammer, returning banned member (sock), or break one of the Site Rules - 6, 7 & 8 or Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ to get banned quickly on here.

Members have to usually display a pattern of behaviour to earn themselves a ban. The mods will customarily have a quiet word with a member if there is an issue (or a public one if it merits it), if it continues then it’ll likely be a warning, followed by more, and then eventually a temporary ban. Sometimes, depending on the situation (the severity of it - or number of previous temp bans etc) it can also result in a permanent ban.

Some bans may be for content or behaviour in PMs - which obviously does not show up in someone’s post history. Which is likely why some bans may well appear harsh to members - yet they may well be unaware of the multiple requests / attempts by mods over time to remedy an issue or problem - or events unseen / in the background in general.
 

Hope that helps mate.

No. Because everyone is working with the same information and can draw their own conclusions.
It’s not my place or my job to tattle on a user I suspect has been banned.

Just to emphasize / clarify, as FGR has been in contact to say how unfairly he has been treated etc - and there was ‘NEVER displayed a “pattern” of behavior’ by him to earn him a ban…

Breaking Rules 6, 7 or 8 of the Site Rules - including making socks - will get anyone a quick ban on here…

Jay said:

Breaking the following rules may result in an immediate and permanent ban with no prior warning:

  1. Do not harass other members, either publicly or via PM. Any unwanted contact after a request to stay away will be considered harassment.
  2. Personal attacks and slurs based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, etc. aren’t tolerated under any circumstances.
  3. Socks (fake accounts where you pretend to be someone else) and team accounts (accounts used by more than one person) aren’t permitted. If we find you using a sock, we’ll ban both the sock and your primary account as well as any related accounts, and possibly IP addresses.

 

So in FGR’s case, Rules 7 & 8 were broken - each on more than one occasion.

The rules are applied to everyone - it doesn’t matter if you are ‘a professional adult with a family’, or ‘a POSITIVE force for the community’ or ‘there are many who would like to see me back on the site’ - or not.

Also, lying to - and attempting to deceive the mods - and then accusing them of ‘bullshit’ and ‘tarnishing their good name’ - is not a good move either.

Not ‘suspect’ - ‘knew’; as in ‘We all knew it was him’.

FGR was a new account after he forgot his password for an old account back before 2016. Subsequently, he was banned years later in 2019 for having multiple accounts.

Since then, countless new accounts created have been accused of being him.

Pass on what you have learned.

You didn’t forget your password in 2016, FGR - you were banned for making homophobic slurs (as part of a personal attack on another member here) - as Mikeluv80.

And yes, you have created several sock accounts on here - in 2016 and onwards.

Me? I’m EA3000.

As far as your false account of events, member MikeLuv80 made no ’slur‘ and furthermore, has nothing to do with FGR.

FGR did nothing.

This is witch hunt and everyone knows it.

Hey man,
First off, this is ForceGhostRecon and please take into account, I have access to countless IPs and Servers (I’m sure you’re catching on to that fact), so I could just as well stay incognito here BUT I’d really like to address something with you directly. As a man. And most importantly, respectfully.

ForceGhostRecon said:

As far as MikeLuv80, here is the actual history (and I think this can be proven if you can go back far enough into records/comments):
MikeLuv80 was a casual account from before I was a faneditor, when I really just browsed and gave opinions.

and for your comments made as Mikeluv80 which earnt you a ban back in 2016…

It appears you were banned on FE for creating sock accounts on there too - and also made homophobic slurs on there as well - just earlier this year.

Bravo! The truth wins out.

It amazes me so many continue to lie so much when they are caught out, it is like they dig their own grave.

Maybe other sites will accept the homophobic comments and socks made by JSteven / ForceGhostRecon / Mikeluv80 / EA3000 and more? Though, this is doubtful. I am glad this community does not!

Geez. I didn’t remember the homophobic comments…

I’ve got nothing but respect and admiration for the work of JSteven/FGR. Bullshit to continue banning one of the most talented and creative editors here over some shit he said years ago.

I would, personally, argue that those who run this site are entitled to set their own rules and are under no obligation to provide a platform to anyone who chooses not to follow them. Making good content isn’t carte blanche to do whatever. ForceGhostRecon does seem to have their own site for their edits, judging from a cursory search. I don’t care to dig more so for all I know, it is defunct, but I fail to see how that would become the problem of the mods here.

Perhaps if this person wishes the mods here to provide him a platform to share his edits with everyone else, it would be smarter to take responsibility for some shit he said years ago that got him initially banned and move on, yes? I can’t imagine it’d be hard to express regret and ask what needs to be done to be able to return, if it’s really so minor and if the content making matters more than spouting slurs. I’d imagine that it’s doing the exact opposite to double down, claim that was never said and deny the alts are his, all while going behind the scenes and not only admitting to it, but also all but promising to keep doing it.

It seems pretty silly to never even resolve the initial issue, to keep breaking the rules and then to try to call the mods out for not getting over it. But that’s just me.

I think this is some of the silliest stuff I’ve seen in a long time. FGR is one of the best contributors to this site. He made an off color comment 4 years ago. Christ, We’re all adults… nobody was attacked or hurt or bullied. Just call him an idiot and move on, or just ignore it. Nothing he did, unless I’m missing something, deserved being cut off from contributing here and banned.
