news forum fully moderated?
    #1952645 - 09/25/03 11:41 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

what's the rationale behind this?

it sometimes takes up to 24 hours for a post to be approved. it's a pain in the ass and if there's not a good reason for it (is there?), maybe it'd be better if it wasn't fully moderated...

Yes, but that would be an invitation to both Chaos and Anarchy. Would you want those two coming over for your small catered affair? I think not -- they would make a mess of the shrimp boats and the ice sculptures... :smirk:

Seriously, the news needs to be tightly controlled and regulated by a small group of multi-national corporations who have broad investment interests to protect. Ourselves, we answer to a small, and secretive, group of wealthy Japanese industrialists. Who pulls your chain?

Its done so we can have some control over what kinds of stories go through, if anyone could post any story it would get a bit out of hand since we have a specific format we have to follow for news stories and of course only allowing on topic stories.

Usually stories are approved a lot quicker than you mentioned, but yeah it can happen that it takes some time to get through.

That makes more sense than my answer. It also seems a tad more coherent. :smile:

PS: Since Motaman has been a Mod of News, things seem to be moving at a pretty good click. I'm pretty sure he checks in once a day, at least.

lol, I am logged on the Shroomery 24/7. If posts go unapproved for a bit, it is because I am sleeping.  :smirk:
