Locked threads

Postby ez14. » Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:08 am

I was just wondering who you think is locking the threads? Doesn't seem like Macon is on here much and obviously dun isn't so maybe we already have a new mod? Or we had more then one the whole time?

There has always been more than one person who has mod rights on every forum as far as I know. Trust and believe the master lock is never far away.

In the 14 years that I have been on these boards, there have always been 2 mods.

Chances are slim to none that you will know who He / She is unless they want to be bothered with constant questioning of why did you lock this and why didn't you lock that. Forum moderation is like being an adult day care teacher I'm sure with all the different complaints. I think most would not want anyone to know they are the mod so that way if you have to block someone whom you like, it would be no hard feelings as they would not know you blocked them cause you were just doing your job.

Its not me.

I have a pretty good idea who one is. If that person wanted you to know, they'd speak.

There are clear rules as to what will cause a thread to get locked. There are times the envelop gets pushed and there are times when tolerance has been expended beyond reason and they nip things in the bud.

This is Macon's house. Respect his rules and you'll be fine. He will have people who are reasonable keeping track.

Through the years I have seen porn posted here. It gets deleted quickly. People will post all kinds of things. I am sure they get tired of settling the bickering between us.

We don't have many locked threads any more. I guess somebody has left recently, that was to blame.

A lot of the locked threads have a common subject denominator and common members participating.
Not a shock..it usually happens that way on every board.

If you ain't a mod you should be, years ago I told you you'd of been a great judge and I still feel that way.

A judge should be open minded, tolerant and compassionate. Not sanctimonious.
