Some of the New Moderators and Their Power Trips!
    #335818 - 06/06/01 03:11 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I really think something needs to be done.With all these new moderators it's getting so that all you see is mods threatning to close threads or delete posts!I will be the first to agree that there are certain circumstances were this needs to be done,but they are just getting out of control.They are acting alot of the time based on their own personal view's on a subject and that is not right.I always thought that this was a board were you had a right to express your opinion regardless of who agrees with you,just as long as it meets certian criteria.Well I guess that Idea is shot to hell,because they are closing threads left and right.I never complain and you never hear me bitching,even if something I read upsets me,I roll with the punches,but now it's just out of control.I am assuming that the Moderators have some set of guidlines they are told to follow.They should be held to those.There was never this problem before all the new Mods.Dont get me wrong,The majority of the Moderators do a fine job,it's the few that are stuck on a permanent power trip that will drive people away.Half the time you really have to stop and wonder if they actually read the post?I truly believe that it would be a good idea if thor got them all together and layed the smackdown upon them!I tottaly agree that if something is illegal or inappropriate it should be taken care of,but they are crossing the line and taking away our freedom. There I feel a little better it's just very upsetting when someone is right there trying to tell you what you can and cant say.Thats always been part of the atraction to this sight,you could say what you wanted.Is this changing?I hope not.

See the suggestion fourm for more information.

Ineed..  This is obviously a suggestion and you post it in OTD?!?!?  And YOU have the nerve to criticize the elite mod squad???  oooohhh, you're just beggin' to be banned.. :wink:

Serisously, there's been a lot of discussion about not allowing illegal business and such on the board for liability reasons.  The code of conduct for mods is still in a flux.  Criticisms like this post are given much consideration as far as I can see.  When I took the job, I signed up to serve.  So please keep the feedback coming.  We want to do a good job.

I really don't see that happening, can you give some examples?

This was locked but now is not.
Here's some discussion on it.

Another example of it.

More and more.

I agree that some should be locked ,I mean come on,why would you just post:no comment" and nothing else?That's just wasting space and litering up the board,it's the legit topics that get closed that upset me.And as egghead specificaly pointed out(thank you)it is happening more and more often.I agree if there was a code of conduct it would not only protect threads that shouoldnt be messed with,but it woul draw a clear line and set of standards that we as members would have to follow.I think this woud make the moderators just alot easier as well.Thanx for moving this thread.After posting it I relized it should be in suggestion,but I couldnt do anything about it.

I don't know how to link a thread but do a search on these posts and you'll see that the context was perfectly calm.

Power Trip would mean there is a destination....personally i don't think that they have plans to stop (with the exception of a majority of moderators)

Innvertigo,
that was sarcasm on the part of Senor_Doobie due to the quick banning of a few members by one or two of the new moderators.

Who cares, the new moderators got their positions because their lives revolve around the shroomery. So technically they have the right to decide what happens in their lifes, since the shroomery seems to be their only life.

Thats just stupid man.It was not my intention to imply that the moderators are all doin there job wrong.In fact I think exactly the oppisate.It is the minority of the new Mods who I feel are abusing there Power.There are alot of well informed,and very cool Moderators here and it is not right to generalize.Like I said Some of the mods are abusing there powers,but in some cases it just based on misundersatndings.Thats why I believe the code of Coduct is a good idea.

It is important to remember is the new mods are just that....new...takes time to understand exactly what is expected of you and what is the best way to go about it.

People just need to cut all the new mods some slack. Please don't downright attack them because all that does is raise the conflict to a different level. I would suggest instead that perhaps you attempt to discuss with them what you think they did wrong and how they could have handled it differently. It gives them a chance to reflect and understand the mod position better.

Think of it this way. If you got pulled over by a cop for speeding. He is going to right you a ticket...you get in his face and yell at him and tell him he's on a power trip...blah blah blah. Well one thing if for sure...you are getting that ticket and you might just also spend the night in jail for any number of reasons that the cop wants to use to put you their. However if you talk to the cop rationally and discuss with him the problem (i.e. I am sorry this is my girlfriends car and I am not quite used to it yet and didn't realize I was driving that fast...I'll be more careful next time.) He might just give you a warning.

This analogy isn't perfect because for one thing we all wouldn't want to consider ourselves cops but we are here to uphold the rules. Anyhow...I think you all get what I mean. Discussion gets you a lot farther then arguing.

Karen.. Ineed didn't get in anyone's face. He/She's making a perfectly rational criticism with a rational suggestion to avoid future problems. All the mods should read it and take it into consideration just like any other criticism. None of the mods are 'new' to shroomery. They've all been around for quite a bit (except me).
