    Default Declaration Of Moderation

    The Declaration
    "If I was a Moderator I would never ever delete or edit any post unless I could give a real genuine honest valid reason for doing so and I would always give that reason clearly ................ I would also be very open to criticism about my decisions which means (to me) being open to my mind being changed and reversing my decision if neccessary and openly admitting I'd made a mistake.

    I would also have to set an example and refrain from posting any abusive language (whether I like it or not!!) because I would feel that being a Moderator comes with some responsiblity.

    Does that seem like a good approach to take as a Moderator??
    Compare my approach to that of the current "moderators" .............."


    This poll/thread is intended to guage what kind of treatment the Members of this site would like from their Community Moderators.

    It is a genuine valid question and is not intended to cause any further conflict.

    Please feel free to post your reasons for voting the way you did ............. in fact I encourage you to do so.

    Please do not post any foul or abusive language or give certain "people" any excuse to censor this thread/poll.

    Thank you.

    Seems like a pretty good declaration to me Paws. No arguements there....in fact, it s the sort of approach I would adopt myself in that situation.

    I know you would Carlos which is why I always thought if we had Community Moderators that you would make a good one ............. in fact I posted that more than once.

    I have no idea why patricia chose the "moderators" she did???

    I voted yes on this because i think that if a post is modified in any way by a moderator, he/she should give some reason for his/her actions.
    If it besause of bad language, a simple "bad language removed" will do but i do think that some explanation is deserved.
    I called for the same thing on the Escort reviews, I didnt think that a simple "patricia smells a rat" was good enough, we need to know why..

    Exactly Eps ................ for example west has even resorted lately to actually inserting his own comments into other posters posts when he is losing an argument in the hope of making himself seem less foolish than he obviously is ............. some "moderator"!!!

    Thanks for the vote btw

    Bigpaws, you have arguably made good points here, and if you are switching to a more constructive attitude I welcome that.

    But, to date, you have made it very difficult for the new mods, by being totally unconstructive and rude and badgering them.

    I've been modding for years and in an ideal world I would only delete what I had to, give reasons for doing so and not use any bad language.

    But the reality is, it is tough job, and there are only so many hours in the day and when you are dealing with someone who is intent on causing trouble, it gets very difficult and very frustrating.

    I've reached the point numerous times when I have had enough of someone and I'm just not able to spend any more time pandering to them.

    I don't think any moderator came her thinking - I am not always going to be a perfect mod - but they all walked into a very tough situations.

    You and a few others had multiple polls calling for the to be de-modded before they's even got started.

    They all started with a good attitude and I think they all still have a good attitude.

    I think I've picked moderators well because I've picked nice people who want the best for this site and want a friendly happy fair E-I.

    They are all human beings and they will all make mistakes - especially if their task is being made incredibly difficult by troublemakers - but they can all be a great asset to this site in my opinion.

    I think we also have to realise - I am the epitome of laid back modding - and for a long time laid back modding worked pretty well, but in recent times it hasn't worked so well, as the number of troublemakers here has just increased and increased, so the level of shit posted here gets worse and worse and whilst some may view that as free speech at work, many just feel intimidated, put off and sick of this place being so full of bullshit. Is it such a bad idea if we try deleting a few more of the nasty threads that don't offer anything positive and see does this improve E-I for everyone?

    You can't be a troublemaker and a helper bigpaws, so if you want to be a positive contributor to the site I suggest you stop causing trouble.

    BTW: Your complaint by PM to me today that a mod edited a word in one of your posts unfairly simply because you were annoying him, but you are prepared to say this to me privately instead of in public. Get over it. You treat the mods like shit and this is what you get. Why don't you start by apologising for your own disgusting behaviour to date and stopping it now, then I might start taking you seriously.
