  1. Don't think I was defending him in my post if that's how it came across as I am not but he'd obviously had beef with some one on the admin staff lol

    Didn't read your post mate. He had been pm'd about the weird karma things that he used to do and I asked him if he had issues but never got a reply.
    I guess he has now jogged on :)

    Moderator.....clue in the title I think. These mods lack self control.

    This is not doing the job they took on, even if they do it voluntarily, this is just them exacting revenge. What happened to a warning PM, followed by warning tags, followed by banning for unruly members. I want unbiased moderate people in the background and not the type that engauge in tit for tat nasty posts. If they think WoodyLubber was deserving of this sort of treatment, use the proper process. (was he pm'd about his posts?)
    This lets members know where they stand.

    I think this has already been addressed by HF here http://thelatebay.com/index.php?threads/admin-cock-up.20833/page-9#post-340934 occasionally members (mods included) take the bait or have just had enough.

    In this case you are probably right, but in the other 99% of cases I think they do a great job of biting their tongue and turning the other cheek.

    So what have we learned ?

    Me: i am going to do a Rick and move off the main page , i am very very grateful to tlb for helping me through my resto and for helping me make some nice friends ( members and mods ), i have enjoyed it immensely , this bickering and them and us business has put me off posting as i will never again be sure it's being taken in the right spirit and never again be sure about certain people on here .

    Beside's i do post some crud at times - time to get a grip and move on for me me thinks not in a " i'm off you're all a bunch of so and so's " way, i am just going to try and enjoy this superb forum from afar .

    peace and positive vibes to all :)

    I agree that 99% of the time they do a great job, i dont think they should have to bite their tongues or turn the other cheek. I think they should follow a process that removes the need this.

    What was said by me in your Summercamp thread to stop them from biting their tongues, was their anything concerning them, NO, was there any abuse, NO, did you realise you'd abused some members, YES, did you mod the thread to make you look good, YES, then behind the scenes it was planned to attack Springcamp, YES, I've never had a warning from anyone about anything, im not on the watched list or never have been, maybe sometimes you just don't like the truth coz it makes you look bad, never mind coz you did look bad and so do your mods

    Genuine question - what would you suggest?

    Just because you were not given a warning doesn't mean that it wasn't discussed, you know that in the past what you have said has caused a lot of grief and that you like a good stir yourself. If you want to pm me to discuss it further, feel free. If not, it's no great loss. :)

    Woody how can you say that?? You yourself have lit the touch paper in the past for others to bite. As an ex mod I cannot sit back and say nothing with regards to making the mods look good.

    There have been many posts that the team has modded over the years to make the members look good. On many many occasions I became quite vocal in the staff room in letting the members bang it out to allow themselves to look silly on the open forum. This was one of the reasons why I left.

    I cant really answer that beacuase a) I dont know how you have things structured in the back room b) I am not aware of the process you currently follow for dealing with perceived baiting, nuisance posting and all the stuff we can do without.

    I think that whatever system you have needs to be followed or those that deviate from system should be subject to its rules. Like you said before the meltdown, you need a warning tag.

    I dont want to go on and on, I just want integrity and consistency. I feel the same as Poptop, It's a great forum. I just see people diffently now.

    From what has been posted I don't get this "seeing people differently now" trend?
    All they did was agree to stir things up a bit. They didn't try it on with your mothers!
     
  18. It would seem there is a lot of us feeling like that Silver - things have not been the same for a long time - think back to the days of Magic Trev etc.

    People will always come and go, and I am sure new blood will soon be in our place - you were one of the first people we met from here and it filled us with a lot of faith!

    I know I speak for Mr B here too, unfortunately he has no internet access out in the woods - I just hope this thread isn't removed before he gets chance to see it all this evening - I could never begin to explain it! :p

    To be honest I think everyones feelings are stemming from much farther afield then the latest incident with the staff room being left unlocked - think that was just the icing on the cake so too speak!

    If it gets pulled, you can easily explain what happened as either "nothing" or "dull".
    Hope that helps.
