Banning or foregiveness?
 
Well it would appear our opinions are as varied as our membership. How about a little "CONSTRUCTIVE" feedback from the members on how things should be handled when things get ugly.
Remember that this board belongs to Testclear and having new members who stay means potential customers for the company that runs and gives us our FREE board. Also remember that all the Mods are volunteers who merely try to keep things running smoothly in the forums. Nobody wants to deal with anything that's a hassle but sometimes the guidelines force one of us to act to quell potential disruption.
So the question is...What is a good method for handling members who act up and go beyond common decency into downright hatefulness?
What are the consequences of their actions?
Should they be forgiven immediately or should some form of "Time out" be used to get folks to think about their actions.
The Mods are reluctant to enforce rules that are so whimsical.
What does the membership want?
Discuss....civilly please.

You're first after me!:D

Dr. ShinDig 04-06-2012 04:39 PM

define hatefulness.. Because I havn't seen anything lately that could be classified as that.

farmergiles 04-06-2012 04:39 PM

IMO it depends entirely on what was posted.

Getting heated and somewhat personal in a discussion = week max or better perhaps = 24 hrs IMO.

Dr. ShinDig 04-06-2012 04:46 PM

define personal :D

farmergiles 04-06-2012 04:50 PM

I don't have to, there are dictionaries on line.

slunt 04-06-2012 04:58 PM

Anyone have any well thought out definitive reasons or suggestions.
You folks get irate when you aren't consulted about potential changes in policy or guidelines, but when asked to participate you reply with very little substance.
While your opinions are welcome, some suggestions would help also.
So far in 9 posts only FG's has participated helpfully.

Dr. ShinDig 04-06-2012 05:02 PM

I need clarification before I can contribute


look back to FFA in 2004 and that's what we want, I think.

farmergiles 04-06-2012 05:03 PM

So look at the past and complain?

04 led to 05 and so on. Make a change or whinge. Members do have a say in this.

Dr. ShinDig 04-06-2012 05:08 PM

I'm not saying let's go back in time, I'm saying give us the same freedom of back then.

For instance, a say in what? changes? no changes!!!! (in ffa)

Jester4yall 04-06-2012 05:13 PM

My thoughts are close to what was posted by Farmer. Little personal attacks should be 24-48hrs on first offense. Repetitive abuse from that member should result on harsher penalties. Stalking a member around for motives other than to insult and start drama 30 days

Blatant disregard for the rules and other members should result in a pm from All mods who discuss bannings on 1st offense. I say this because I think the multiple perspectives will help clear confusion and maybe change the way one posts in the future.




More come on yahooka talk this over like adults. Youve got the mods attention with your fuvk komp post, now lets be civil since they are allowing us to discuss this. They didn't have to you know.



More to come after diner

So FFA is a little padded cell where it is safe for the inmates to freak out?

Using those guidelines would mean that Terry shouldn't have to do a month. I know I'm not contributing any solutions to the overall problem but it seems this all stems from Terry's ban. And whatever is allowed between members should be allowed between Mod's and members. What Terry said to Komp wouldn't have gotten him banned if he would have said the same thing to a non-mod.

farmergiles 04-06-2012 05:25 PM

They aren't guidelines, just my opinion.

But yes I agree (with my own opinion :bg:).

ionlylooklazy 04-06-2012 05:45 PM

Personally, I don't think Terry's ban should be upheld -- it should be extended. Time and time again, I have come to lurk and constantly have to put up with Terry's shit-posting. It's time that we as a community use this as a moment of reflection to define a common operating boundary where civilized discourse is the norm, rather than the exception. Terry needs to be made an example of.

DubStyle311 04-06-2012 06:12 PM

Who the hell is slunt?

DubStyle311 04-06-2012 06:13 PM

Oh and what did terry do?
