Do not discuss moderation and sanctions

So, WG, could you let me know what rules your 'moderators' are working to?

Ok,

 

Err, I don't know if I have a complaint or not.

 

Because I don't know what rules they are working to.

 

If I had used bad language, I would understand.

 

If I had been crude, religiously, philosophically, damn it, just in general, I would get it.

 

But I would appreciate a reason to close my thread - even if, subsequently, I chose to argue it.

 

So, you tell me. But so far, your moderators have no level of responsibility for their actions and as such have no respect certainly from myself, probably from others.,

edit: Jesus that failed.

Right again...

 

Look at the avatar of the person who closed your paintball thread...

Now think about the cartoon fetish and pink underwear conversation...

 

Fairly sure someone felt embarrassed, then enraged, and then closed the thread.

 

BTW the paintball idea was good, well OK bad for a tank game but still.

Well this one will be closed under the "discussing moderator actions / sanctions" rule so you could start there.

Lol,

 

Ok, the post was:

 

4th Slot Ammo

 

If the mod that closed it took umbrage because of his avatar, or think it reflected upon his personal life aspirations, then exactly what MAY I write here without offense. I am professionally qualified in Diversity and Inclusivity, I am an instructor in Human Factors, and above all I am old and haven't been punched in a LONG time, so heck, what the hell was wrong with the post????

You're probably going to end up having a mental break down on this forum or at least a deep headache at the retched state of human kind based on the sample of posters here.

My advice, quit while you are sane.

 

Diverse, inclusive and human.... not here my friend, not here.

I imagine it was closed because the moderator has more experience here than you and knows where that thread is headed and decided to stop it now rather than later.

 

If you had got a warning then you would also have a reason for the warning.  In this case it's just a moderator keeping things on track.

Moderators make mistakes, though.

 

However, the one thing no mod can ever afford to do is to discuss his or her decisions publicly. It is just a question of numbers: one fool can ask more questions than a single mod may ever answer, but a thousand fools... Well, you get the picture. Hopefully.

 

Do what the manual says, contact the mods privately through the appropiate channels. Be polite. Answers might follow. Maybe. :-)

Well, I suppose you'll be fine as long as jalapeno or whatever he's called is on his shift. I mean, you can't even critisize WG in the slightest without getting warning points. And by God, DO NOT make jokes about WG or you will be banned.

 

But hey, I'm sure his paychecks are blooming, so nice career move I suppose.

None of them involved huge profanity or general bad language.

 

The 2nd reply on you paintball ammo idea was more than enough reason to close it early. As it was a clear indication of where it would go. You other past topics have been about MM and arty. And for logical reasons they want that on the pinned topic on top. So most of those get closed, even if you type really nice. And some of your other locked topics was not locked due to what you said or posted. But the discussion that followed that got out of hand. Tho oddly enough your "stick it where the sun don't shine" topic is still up. So go figure.

 

And since this topic is a discussion about moderation. I suspect this will be closed soon too.

Ok, gents, well thx for the input - it's hard to fight 'this thread COULD go in this direction'.

I mean, I COULD be the Devil himself, just playin' tanks for a larff.....:)

Most of the time they just edit out the stuff they dont like. Sometimes they will randomly ban though. Depends on their mood

Looking at that thread, you post was amusing and quite innocent.

The 1st reply was probably mean to be the same.

However, together, neither would indicate the thread was likely to become constructive, nor would relate to gameplay.

I would assume that was the reason the thread was closed. 

 

Some Mods will explain why, this Mod obviously didn't.

Don't be silly, people criticise Wargaming all the time on here without getting warning points.

 

The people who get warning points are the ones who think that criticism involves pointless ranting, all-caps sentences, insults towards various players or staff members and a choice selection of cursewords. It's entirely possible to be critical without any of those ingredients, but if you don't know how, you're going to have a ban time. Pun intended.

seriously, some sort of paintball ammo dealing no damage would be a fun thing to have.

Seems like a reasonable assessment. The "cartoon people" are very sensetive about their interest. I once expressed my view on a "very young girls" crew and voice pack mod and got put in the slammer for a week by one of them. :harp:

I've looked at their posting history a little and immediately noticed they mainly post on the Czech/Polish (I can't tell the difference) section of the forum. The post in your locked thread was the only english post I can see.

 

So that's another question: What's a moderator from another language section of the forum doing on the english forum?
