The problem, X-Black, is that the feedback section for a while was being abused and it became a place for people to vent their embarrassment at "getting in trouble" somewhere else. In our Rules
, which everyone agrees to before posting and also has a reminder of at the top of every forum area here, it clearly states:
EnviroLink operates a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.
Arguing with team members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.
Users who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to make a complaint in the Feedback section or by PM to the Administrator. If they feel you were treated badly they may remove a warning.
I do intervene when I think a mod has gone overboard or whatever, but to be honest most of the time that is just not the case. Users will vote with their feet and move on to another forum if I'm wrong too many times.
Well Josh I was not given any warnings at all before posts were deleted and I was banned for very little IMHO. How else can things be sorted if you have no evidence of what goes on and if you do have an unfair mod/s how can you police them if people complain of indiscriminate deleting and bans?
Is it the case you wish people to vote with their feet or would it be best for objective moderation, then people wouldn't have to leave like the likes of Wayne a well respected member? I do believe the heart of the issue of him leaving is the main reason for MANY complaints in the past few months. This was always a fair forum that moderated objectivly, not anymore from what I'v noticed.
Am I missing someting here?
