Hello, Fellow Forumers, 

 

Lately i noticed a distinct increase in the amount of locked Topics.

 

On most occasions the decision seemed justified, but ( for example ) yesterday 

the ( hilarious ) Topic about "Guidelines For Blitz Gameplay" was locked, as well.

 

I've scrolled through all the Posts in that Topic, but couldn't find anything wrong ( IMHO )

that warrants that particular Topic to be locked. Can a Member of WG's Moderation Team 

( for example EndToast / EndTastic or anyone else ) please explain to us ( or me, in a PM )

the reasons for locking Topics, like the aforementioned one ?

 

Let me state beforehand that I'm not intending to pick a fight with the Mod Team, nor do I

question the need for this Forum to be moderated, but lately I found myself quite puzzled

about their decision making ; it seems ( a personal opinion ! ) a bit "random" to me now ...

 

I would really appreciate it, if a Moderator would care to offer some insights in this matter.

 

Best Regards,

PanzerPsycho68.

The mods here just do whatever they want, regardless whether it's against the rules or not. They don't justify their actions, they don't answer questions, they delete posts and threads if they don't like what's being said or disagree with it. they're a law unto themselves. 

I'm not complaining, I'm communicating a matter of significant importance to me  :)

Dear moderators,

Please don't lock topics or un-pin them. By the way, if you don't like fun threads, tell us the sub-forum where we can talk about it.

Regards,

@PanzerPsycho: Don't count on any explanation from the moderators. According to the forum rules they don't have to and can basically do whatever they feel fit. I guess we all accepted the forum rules by posting here - complaining about it in hind sight won't change it. I guess this a 'take it or leave it' situation.

@Netforce : I don't count on any explanation, but I hope that a Mod would care to explain their reasoning here.

 

This can work positive in two ways : we, as Forumers, will have a better idea about what is deemed acceptable

( or not ) by the Moderators and, because of this, the Moderators need to spend less time enforcing their rules.

 

IMHO, this will increase the understanding between "us" and "them" and lessen the irritation towards one another.

Surely I sympathise with your post and hopes ... I would be positively surprised if a moderator would explain. Let's hope together and channel the 'hoping force' towards the moderators :-) (is there any Jedi around that can help us channeling?)

It's not too much to ask or expect that the mods treat us with respect and behave decently. we would then reciprocate.

I am using the force but the dark side is strong in the moderators...

There shouldn't be a 'them and us' mentality. we are all blitz players and we are all forumers! the job of the mods is to make the forum better and more harmonious, not to upset or antagonise any of us.

I couldn't agree more with you ; judging from all the Upvotes you've received I'm not the only one !

 

However ....

 

At least one person here on the Forum doesn't share our thinking, because this evening another Topic

( about RNG affecting Lockboxes ) was locked, for no other reason that some regular Forumers were

telling eachother that some other Forumers received temporarily ChatBans.

 

They where not even criticizing or discussing this matter ; they where only mentioning it to eachother !

This "offence" was apparently enough reason for one of the Mods to lock down the Topic immediately.

 

As mentioned before in this Topic : it really starts to feel like North Korea here lately ....  Hello Mr. Kim ?

The forum rules state that you can't discuss a ban. Always have. It would indeed be good to have moderation that stated reasons, but the current moderator/s don't want to do this. It's their party, they set the rules. No point in crying about it.

@Merpug :

 

I know this Rule, but like I said before : they were not discussing or criticizing these Bans.

They were only telling / mentioning these Bans to eachother.  What's the Offence in that ? 

Is it really necessary for us Forumers, to be hunted-down by a modern Spanish Inquisition ?

 

FFS : I'm an Adult, over 50y , and even in High School I never felt the need to chose my words

in such a careful way as we have to do here, lately, to avoid locked Topics and / or Chat Bans.

Well, I'm an adult and over 60, my life has taught me to be circumspect and to moderate expression of opinions when it's necessary. A career in IT technical sales brings you into contact with many idiots who know everything on the basis of zero knowledge or ability. Winning business in those circumstances can be interesting.

Here's the 'Guidelines for Blitz' list that was asked for..  http://auslink.42web...guidelines.html

 

Maybe someone with suitable skills can jazz it up a bit with some graphics, decoration, etc.,

Yeah I made it as a webpage so if anyone wants to see it they can without downloading anything. But if you (or anyone) wants it as a .doc just copy and past the text into your favorite word processor. simplez! :)

Re the original post .... yes, I’ve noticed this, too.  

I preferred the red text and warnings...
