Well made a new topic here, since it wasn't a suggestion after all, rather a debate. Seth had to poke his nose once again, and lock a "sensitive" topic.

Seth, I am addressing you here directly. Unless you wanna justify, debate on the side of the mods, please keep out of the argument. People are just talking here, and locking and throwing away a topic and taking away an option for people to respond to posts is undemocratic and infringes on a persons right to express himself. There are no unnecessary threads and it is not for you to deem what is necessary and what isn't. Every thread that people are interested in commenting is necessary for the forums.

Yes, most people do not like the way the forums are being modded. Yes most of your mods dont show common sense while modding. Yes, the way me and duo and others want the forum modded will actually keep the forums active.

That said, I do agree that mods need some time to warm up to their jobs. I do agree that they make mistakes and it is natural and I am willing to give them time to correct any of their inconsistencies.

Discuss guys. And dont call each other anything that might show up as CENSORED lol.

7/28/11 10:34 PM
so, sorry if you dont like my decision, but its a contest not a democracy
7/28/11 10:34 PM

Max 7/28/11 10:36 PM

Yeah am gonna double post cuz I had to reply"

Regarding mfreak's million times more mature comment, maybe, MAYBE there are some cases in which that is true. But, then again, that is what organization is for, and if youre really hooked about the theme, you can do so in the appropiate place, where you will find that most, if not near all of the ppl that enter it will sit down and speak just about that theme, because that is what they came for. But if you come to the Earth4 on the War and Diplomacy section, hoping to know and/or comment about this huge war, and then find that topic's last 2 or 3 pages are flodded with the Teletubbies, it definitely dissapoints.


In cases where people ASK for a mod to intervene to get the topic back on topic, its alright. However I have seen topics go smoothly for 10 pages when suddenly a mod comes in and starts throwing warnings around. Which I am against.

Quote:
And, nothing wrong with addresing him right there eather -but that, unfortunately, isnt so effective: if he actually overmodded, its because he thought he was right, and he most probably wont change that determination just because you call him out. But being scolded by a boss definitely straightens you up. One way or the other.


No one is no ones boss here on BD. Mods dont get paid. They do it because they wanna be involved. If I was a mod and my "boss" scolded me, Id give him my finger LOL. Telling them right then and there is effective. I told off Jake a couple of times and then he pinged me on chat to find out what the issue was. I haven't said anything about his modding since then, I have seen him mature more as a mod, which is a good thing. I am willing to give people the time but I am not willing to accept that the current way of modding is right.

Quote:
And its sad that you dont have the time or care enough to help the BD community and staff in however way you can.


Uh, Yeah. I dont really care about improving community issues, because with the current system it wont. Change your rules and regulations, change modding methods and this forum will be a much better place. I am not willing to go on a wild goose chase. I however do speak to Ilona etc about suggestions to changes in game mechanics etc which ultimately helps players. I hope. lol.

There is no reason for this thread. If you have a problem with the moderators, then take it up with me. I will address it. Do not post threads where you ask that I allow you to attack my moderators in plain site. If there is a matter needing handled, I will handle it.

Please do not open another thread regarding this topic. It is done.
