Moderation Discussion Thread

Post by MysticJhn » Fri Feb 20, 2009 9:05 am

Use this thread to discuss any warnings/bans/deletions myself or another mod/admin has done.
I'll try and answer questions and concerns on a timely basis.
This is to be an open dialog to not only keep my PM box from overflowing,
but to keep the users on the same wavelength as I am.

Rule #1: Do not come in here to just yell at me about things.
Please leave all discussion in a civil manner.

Rule #2: Do not jump into conversations with other users if it does not concern you.

Rule #3: Do not report threads or ask for locks/deletions/edits/bans here.
In this thread they will be ignored.
There is a report post function, use it.

Rule #4: You may however use this thread to request things to be stickied or unstickied.
If you make such a request, make sure it's something important.
Don't request things just because it is your thread.

Rule #5: Do not spam or chat in this thread.
Spam and chatter that it off-topic (despite the folder's name) will be deleted.

Rule #6: To keep everyone on the same page and so everyone can publicly see how I am moderating, do not PM me about any moderatory action. PMs to me will no longer be answered if they are complaints about actions taken in a moderatory fashion.

Hopefully if any users feel there is issues or unfair moderation going on, it can be discussed civily in this thread and happy feelings will be restored.

Yeah I made a post in Chi-Town's Kaiba so-called "Maybe it's goodbye" thread and it got deleted. While it may have been a tad harsh it needed to be said and he needs to understand that making multiple copies of the same thread on this forum is considered spam and shouldn't be tolerated.

It was looking for an argument, it wasn't needed.

So, is it me, or have we had lots more advertisers to ban since the upgrade?

Nah, it's not just you.

I must have banned 3 or 4 this week alone.

Two of them for handbags... not quite sure how we attract handbags.

I thought you were the only Mod since Alex left a while ago... Well, there's AirknightP, but I've never seen him post.

I'm really not sure how to say this, but could you temporarily sticky my Poll thread in Deck Advice? I don't like having to repeatedly bump it, and no one has really commented. If not, I'll just keep bumping.

YCG Admin is rather active, so I'm considering him.
And if there is another mod in the future (not saying I know of such a plan) then this topic would be here for them to discuss their actions as well, as they would be doing things independently of myself and I would not be able to give specifics on their train of thought.

So this topic is in itself preparation for any need of future generations of moderators.

If noone has really commented on it, then I'm not going to assume it's needing of being stickied.

I looked at the thread itself and it is a regular deck advise thread.

If I stickied yours, I'd have to sticky everyone's deck.
Which leaves us with a page of stickied decks.
And that wouldn't be beneficial to anyone.

Sticky threads should be things important to everyone or a vast majority or threads that are helpful.

This is why I told you to take it to PM.

I am not Da Jackal and cannot answer on his behalf.
And you asking him here is chatter.

Please discuss this private matter with him in PM.
All further discussion of this in this thread by you, Jackal, or anyone else will be deleted.
