Mod Edits

Postby zoot horn rollo » Sat Nov 14, 2009 3:25 pm

Will recently edited a post and left a note explaining why.

edit by willbreathes: no sharing official releases on the OKP


If we made this an informal policy for edits and locked threads, I think it would go a long way toward addressing complaints about Mod control.

I agree. But I also think the people who complain are just looking to get a reaction in the first place.

Actually, I haven't locked or edited any threads since OKP 2.0 opened up. Just not my style, I guess. Will just has a heavy hand... :wave:

On the Jeep board I moderate (which has about 25k members and 200-500 people online at a time), we always leave a note as to why things were edited or deleted and we usually try to send a PM, too. Something along the lines of "Hi so-and-so, I just wanted to let you know that I had to edit/delete your post, as we do not allow x here on the forum. For more info, feel free to check the FAQ or contact a member of the moderating team. Thanks for your understanding!"

Of course, 50% of the time, we get a response somewhere along the lines of calling us nazis.... :lolno: But, hey, I guess it comes with the territory.

In my experience, I've found this board to be fairly light-handed when it comes to moderation in comparison to other forums I frequent. There aren't a whole lot of forums that let me drop a fucking f-bomb whenever I want... so I'm feelin alright. :mrgreen:

Good idea Zoot. Giving reason as to why would probably make it seem less personal.

I have no problem with this at all. I have never edited anyone else's post, but when I lock or move something I always leave an explanation of why. I agree with Neil that the people who complain are looking for a reaction half the time, but yeah, this seems like a reasonable policy to me. Honestly, the need to edit another person's post rarely arises from what I've seen.

we are all being pursed. some have been found, some are still running. some will keep running until they get to the end of the road, straight off the proverbial cliff. you don't have to turn back, you just have to turn around.
