    Where would you like us to improve?

    I hope this thread isn't redundant with the recent barage of announcements. Now that we're done with those (fingers crossed) and the dust has somewhat settled and trust me I know we've had plenty of feedback but I wanted to make a thread about what people feel where we should go from here. and if this thread survives, we can come back to it and add on more as time goes.

    I guess you can insert technical mambo jambo in here as well but I'd specifically like to know where you'd like the moderation to improve. Are we being tight wads? Are we suppressing any freedoms? or do you want tighter control over moderation?

    If you feel that we're not moving towards the right direction, then advise the direction you'd like us to take.

    Please comment! Thanks.

    I want Sufi to be sexier. Just kidding. That's not possible because you're too handsome. On a serious note everything seems fine.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    The mods are fine. I never get into any trouble here. No infractions, no nothing. If you aren't a dickhead, it seems easy enough to avoid.

    Well, the only mods that have given out any infractions, and I'm not counting banning spambots, since new management settled in are three3-times and Rapture. But usually I've seen insults simply edited out and replaced which doesn't make sense since the user whose post is being fixed can just edit it back in.

    I want more staff to put their foot down pretty much. You will have people respond defiantly, telling you not to message them etc. and I know the feeling sucks but it's part of being a moderator to deal with those $#@!ty attitudes.

    it's interesting that you say this because i did have one member edit their post back, however, it was a special circumstance and the person changed it to something else.

    other than this, i'm glad to say that no one else has done this so far and as for PMs, i have not had any issues at all, usually people have been pretty understandable and members that had an issue with it, talked it over and were acceptable of the results.

    i think if we start out being scary and stuff, it can create a hostile environment. if someone wants me to stop messaging them then they should stop posting stuff that's against the rule lol though i haven't had anyone tell me that yet.

    they know that we can lay down the law and i'm surprised that everyone's been pretty cool so far.

    if the $#@! hits the fan, then yes I totally agree with you, you have to do what you have to do, though that hasn't happened yet...except the recent infamous announcement threads...

    Keep in mind we only announced the new system very recently. We will have a better idea of possible improvements and changes after it has been in practice for awhile.

    I'd like to see more subscriber incentives and a working shop.

    That would be all for now.

    most members simply want to be heard. infracting them simply doesn't do that. its merely a blanket punishment void of compassion and judgement.

    Seb disliked seeing members with "Banned" by their names, and quite rightly so, it gives mod here the appearance of descending from on high.

    the new approach to moderation here should ensure members voices are heard first and foremost.

    Stage 1: Private message with warning + user note + 30 day probation

    Stage 2: 3-7 day ban, depending on moderator(s) judgement + 30 day probation
    * Section bans may apply instead if it's isolated section behavior, ranging from 4-14 day ban to a section(s).

    Stage 3: Two week ban + 30 day probation

    Stage 4: One month ban + 30 day probation
    * The 1 month charge may repeat again if a member breaks rules, but still shows signs of improving and is worth keeping on the forums

    Stage 5: Perma-ban
    :: Only for the worst of the worst members who show no signs of improving or state they will not change for the better, after all of the above was done ::
    if a member reaches stage 5 and is issued with a ban, we want them, and everyone here, to know the mods did their utmost to solve the problem.

    those members who currently have temp bans reached such a point, luckily, the vast majority of our members are calm level headed posters, and we'll treat them as such, not slap their hand like a child.

    it should also be noted that no mod will be issuing bans by their own discretion. bans of any sort will be discussed my two or more members of staff.

    i hope that's cleared some of the confusion

    Ability in the user CP to turn off those funky text glows people insist on using in to write the main body of text with, my eyes are bad enough, I have to often highlight the text to make it easily legible.
    I can turn off similar effects in the chatbox but not the forum.

    This is something that is currently being developed. I'd like to develop it till the cows come home so the community can help support the site. There are a few initial things in the works.

    You should post some examples that you've seen around the web.

    Depends on how far back you wanna go to even see what forum software was being used. What was his role back then?
