Re: The Euro Mods are watching you new [re: power2charm]  

In reply to:

But we live in fear that we will run awry of one of the two Euros, that they will find us lacking and start badgering us and drumming up ill will in the lead-up to a possible banning.


I think this is an incisive and accurate comment. Recently, Sysio called me an insulting name, "painocraft," and labeled me a "flamebaiter" on the message board. When I called him out on it, he edited the insulting name only.

It is devastating to be insulted and labelled by one with the power to silence your views and remove you. I wonder if this moderator was beginning a campaign to get me banned.

In reply to:

pablopicasso: I would move the offending post to the correct forum without mentioning the movement on the boards and PM the author and tell them their mistake



That's a completely reasonable response, and one I've meant to employ on the sparse occasions I've moved threads. Now that my Adderall script has been renewed, perhaps I'll actually be organized and thoughtful enough to follow through.

Marquis and Wraith2



Wow. You guys make me feel all girly and protected. How sweet. Marquis, it's mutual admiration (and send me some of whatever you're smoking, must be mighty potent!) Wraith2, there might be a little something extra in the toe of your stocking this xmas. Look hard!

What are the duties of the moderators?



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Glad you asked, EJ. You and the others were appointed after Adam blah blah blah You are here to blah blah blah You are not our Socialist blah You may recommend Adam or Evan ban somebody if and some more blah blah blah



Yeah? Because you say so? Funny, 'cause neither Adam nor Evan delineated any such pompous doo doo protocol in the grueling interview process preceding my invitation to become mod. Are you saying you intercepted my Moderator's Manual before I got a chance to peruse?

When concerns are brought to the attention of the mods by NMPs, we usually brainstorm. Sometimes Adam contributes, and sometimes he doesn't. EJ, Sys and I have sought Adam's counsel on matters, 'cause we kinda picture him as a Yoda, and as far as I can recollect, he has trusted our judgment, and put final decisions in our hands. You should too.



In reply to:

you do *not* have that right anymore in the arena of posting your negative opinions of posters over which you moderate.



So I should sit here, allowing hangdogten to state that he doesn't like me, but not be able to say that--in my opinion--Stu is the most bloated sac of flatulence that this board has ever seen? And you should be allowed to announce to the TW community that poorsoul's posts make the enamel peel off your teeth, but the mod boys and I should sit here stoically and pretend we have no opinions? Bullshit p2c! The speech and the opinions of the mods will be no more restricted than yours!

And while on the topic, I'm glad hangdogten doesn't like me and feels free to say so, but I have to be allowed the same freedoms! The only good piece of advice I ever got from a parent was from my dad (RIP) who told me once "If everyone liked you, there'd be something wrong with you." Becoming a mod was not the result of a popularity contest. We all already know the result of the TW popularity contest, don't we.

And the mods cannot--nor can they reasonably be expected to attempt to--make everybody happy. Regarding the temporary ban of ddz74, some thought it was too harsh (I hear partially responsible for the departure of Dara ), and some are totally miffed he was even allowed back (I hear the flaccid cheek flapping of somebody whose name I won't mention.) I guess most of the others' opinions lie somewhere in between. I agree with EJ that the resolution was adequate.

In reply to:

You banned ddz74 temporarily because you received threats from posters that you like that they would leave if dogz, whom you have stated you do *not* like, was not banned.

So you banned who you didn't like to keep on board those you do. That is Hall of Shame Moderating right there: I award the Blue Ribbon Prize to the TW Mods for letting the inmates run the prison.



You are so off the mark it's ludicrous! My keyboard sputters in attempt to address this. Just let me say, if each of the three mods (minus Tati for not being here, and minus Adam for actually being *Administrator) banned everybody each one doesn't like, SPF would probably be here solo.

In reply to:

I'm gonna put it in a dictum for you: DON'T BAN POSTERS JUST BECAUSE YOU OR OTHERS DON'T LIKE THEM.



Sorry, Mr. TW. Your title allows you the crown and the bouquet only. Your stompy foot little temper tantrum is in vain. Just smile and practice that regal wave, will ya?

In reply to:

We don't need you to promote interaction amongst us or adjudicate our squabbles.



Do you hear that Persilot? According to Mr. TW, my moderating "power" is not within the scope to address the issue you brought to my attention this morning. Same for you, Arlequino. Evidently, I can remove certain nakey pictures, and that's it.

Sorry.

Heh. And to think I was about to change my sig!

That's it. Time for a new "Mr. TW" competition.

Why did you delete my "Can vaginal walls overpower a cock" thread?

I was simply sharing some insightful information and personal experiences with the Kegel exercises.

Oh, Beltene, Beltene, sweetie. TW is not the best place to ask questions like that. We all know that no-one here ever has sex.

But of course the answer is "yes."

Now male Kegels... those are a bit more of a mystery.

Make mine a bagel new [re: Beltene]  

I thought it was as graphic as the spate of porn pictures (which I am sanctioned to remove) that were popping up at the time. Sorry if I erred in judgment on that one. It was close.

Re: Long live Big Brother new [re: 96dbFreak]  

Ohramona - nicely put. You too, EJ. And Sysiyo too. I really haven't seen any moderator do a bad job, and I don't really see where this complaint came from. It's a shame the banning issues may have had an impact upon Dara's leaving, but as a move to try and please everyone on the board was impossible, it seems the action taken was the fairest and most effective course of action.

Edit - I ought to explain the seemingly pointless sycophancy of this post. I was initially going to use it to reply to Stu, but felt I ought to just say that I agreed with what all the mods have said about their duties. But then, I decided replying to Stu was best left to PMs, hence the really sucky post that's left here!

later,
Chris...

AEOS new [re: Arlequino]  

Although probably the whole DD74 banning issue might have been an issue, from what I can make out it was more to do with the air of negativity which pervaded this board a few months ago which led to Dara deciding there were more important things in life to concentrate ones energies on. I think to a degree that air of negativity has lifted lately.
Rather than concentrating on things we like or are enthusiastic about it all seemed to be about what we disliked, what annoyed us, who annoyed us and the dreaded THBDB curse that was uttered to newbies on arrival.
I think after the terrific amount of activity in the last two years and the subsequent quiet patch due to the early demise of the Reality tour, where once this board was a hotbed of gossip, facts and figures suddenly it felt like the brakes were put on, and rather forcefully too. Things have improved and are still improving. I note elsewhere that Adam is aware of the 'bouncing email' problem with registration. I is a shame that the whole registration process couldn't be simplified as it is very long winded on this site compared to others. We need new blood, if only to satisfy Monkeyboy and Pianocraft for differing reasons.

Regarding the issue,again, of posting in the wrong forum, couldn't there be a locked and pinned post put up in each fora stating the nature of the forum and what can and cannot be inserted? Wouldn't take much effort and might solve some problems.

Now, just let me finish

Painocraft was a writing error on my part, I edited it before you had made your reply as I did not wish to miss-spell anyone's name. (I'd also appriciate it if you didn't miss-spell mine). However, as an individual poster I felt you were flamebaiting. It was also, to some degree, a joke (though I know I shouldn't try to make jokes). In any case, I did not say what I said in the function of a moderator, only as a poster. It was, if you may, my personal opinion. And unlike p2c seems to think, I do not allow my personal opinions on indivual posters to affect my judgement as a moderator.

The idea isn't bad, but I know from experience people tend not to read such 'guidance posts' (I always skip them ). Also, there is an explanation of each forum's funtion (IMO quite clear ones) on the Main Index.
