PostPosted: Fri May 22, 2009 6:45 pm Post subject: Interesting moderation Reply with quote

 I  was  just  browsing  through  another  forum  where  a  heated  discussion  took  place  over  the  last  couple  of  hours  and  turned  into  a  full-fledged  flame  war.
 
 After  going  through  the  post,  I  moved  onto  another  post  and  a  couple  of  minutes  back  happened  to  be  back  on  the  same  topic  again,  since  I  saw  a  new  entry.  The  topic  interested  me,  not  the  flame  war.  
 
 Imagine  my  surprise  when  I  saw  that  the  entire  flame  war  portion  was  deleted  (personal  attacks  only)  and  each  one  who  participated  in  the  flame  war  got  four  points  in  the  negative.  A  10  point  negative  serves  a  ban  from  the  forum  for  45  days  by  the  way.  
 
 The  whole  post  now  looks  clean  except  for  the  debate.  No  moderator  comments,  no  warnings  on  the  forum.  All  warnings  are  sent  by  PM.  Only  the  negative  point  is  seen  against  the  name.
 
 Maybe  we  should  have  something  like  this  on  IAH  as  well.
 
 No  offense  meant  to  anyone  or  disrespect  to  the  Mods  and  Admins.  This  is  just  a  suggestion.

 i  also   think  that  this  is  better  way  to  keep  the  tab  on  the  people  who  indulge  in  rudeness  or  personal  attacks.

 Agree  with  Suraj  ....  will  ensure  sanity  in  some  threads.
 
 @  Vimal  -  We  still  do  have  the  reputaion  system,  it  appears  as  stars,  and  is  not  visible  in  some  themes.

 Why  a  forced  moderation  by  Admins????  Isn't  it  better  to  go  with  Self  Moderation??  We  all  are  here  for  our  hobby.  What  is  the  point  of  spilling  blood  on  each  other?
 
 Just  a  thought.   Smile

 well  Tirtha,  i'll  somewhat  agree  with  what  you  have  said  but  sometimes  the  situation  is  like  that  when  people  just  lose  it.  it  has  happened  to  me  on  other  places  and  i  repented  it.  but  as  there  were  no  strings  attached  to  it  so  i  took  my  liberty.sometimes  situation  arises  and  we  just  take  the  liberty  to  be  rude.
 
 if  there  are  strings  attached  to  it.  specially  the  one  which  Suraj  has  suggested  i  might  think  twice  in  destroying  my  reputation  which  i  have  built  over  a  period  .  specially  being  barred  from  IAH  for  45  days  is  a  very  dreary  situation  as  i  guess  lot  of  people  are  addicted  to  it.
 
 i  remember  when  the  server  went  off  for  a  day  or  so  and  i  was  restless.

 Seems  like  a  good  idea...how  workable  is  it?  How  do  the  Mods  and  Admin  feel  about  it?

 That's  a  good  idea  Suraj!  Ashwin,  already  our  mods  keep  monitoring  the  posts  made  and  they  are  making  out  corrections.  In  this  case,  I  believe  we  will  be  able  to  do  it.  Let's  hold  on  for  mods  suggestion  or  an  announcement   Wink

 I  agree  with  you  Suraj,  I  made  a  post  in  this  topic  earlier  ,  but  it  seems  to  have  been  deleted.  I  understand  the  reason.  Nice  moderation  here  !  Now  there  are  a  few  people  here  (  we  are  not  allowed  to  name  here  anyone  ,  right  ?  )  who  don't  understand  the  meaning  of  self  moderation.  
 
 check  this  :  http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=14394&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
 
 These  people  should  be  banned  without  warning.

 A  healthy  debate  is  a  must  for  every  forum.  However,  when  it  gets  personal,  it  is  derrogatory  for  the  entire  forum  and  acts  as  a  repellant  for  genuine  would  be  members  while  attracting  a  new  notorious  crowd.  Hence,  although  self  control  is  the  key,  there  must  be  strict  punishments  in  place  to  send  a  message  to  pranksters.

 Request  you  to  stick  to  the  thread  topic  by  expressing  your  views  on  the  subject.  Do  not  fuel  any  personal  spark  which  would  lead  to  flamewar.
 Admins  will  ban  people  when  they  feel  the  guilty  member  was  given  enough  chances  and  there  is  no  scope  or  hope  for  improvement.
