Huh. I thought Cyb’s name here was JOHN. Not that I don’t think it’s him; I checked the profile.
He did, however, have at least somewhat of a point. Sometimes the moderation of this board seems haphazard, and while I do realize that the job is unpaid and pretty much thankless, I do wish there were some uniform rules that we could go by that are somewhat less vague than “Don’t be a jerk,” but not so restrictive that the place is no longer fun.
Whew, that was a long sentence.
Anyway, I think you all know what I mean. I’d imagine the main problem is that it’s more work than would be worth it to come up wtih a set of rules that are uniformly applicable to all of the sections. The reason I wish it could be the case is because of the recent C#3 fiasco, which could possibly have been avoided had he been politely warned the first time he posted his link to AllAdvantage, some two and a half weeks before the fit hit the shan. Had Euty (a somewhat less acerbic moderator than Nickrz, not that there’s anything wrong with that) reprimanded Connie, I doubt any of this would have happened. But since Connie felt like he was justified in doing what he did, mainly because he thought Nickrz was being arbitrary since he’d been allowed to do the same thing before in a different forum, it turned into a big nightmare. I’d like to find some way of avoiding stuff like that, but it’s hard to make up rules for this place, because people are always breaking rules you didn’t know you should have until they were broken.
I’m rambling, and I’m tired. I hope this makes sense. If not, feel free to e-mail me and ask me questions directly. Contrary to popular belief, when I raise my questions or concerns, I’m only trying to get the moderators to think about their actions, and hopefully make this board a better, and more fair, place.
