I think it's cool to follow the rules and think it's cooler when the rules are the same for everybody!

They should all get some balls. But i never got that. You can grazes balls and still go down. Pusses are pretty tough comparatively so we should be saying they should get pussys or stop being balls.

Mat Sklansky, please shut down P7.0 or at the very least find a suitable counterpart to Chez.

Re: Politics version 7.0 discussion safe space

i'm back to not caring much about either one of the politics forums, and i'm not receiving emails from users complaining about them, so i don't have much motivation to change anything.

If you don't care about it why don't you either close it or find someone to co-mod with Chez? Obviously it's always a mistake to put one person in charge who allows their biases to run amok.

Re: Politics version 7.0 discussion safe space

Paul D,

Have you considered just not visiting that forum? Or if you do then engaging in a civil manner as is outlined in the rules?

Goofyballer posts there continuously and engages in arguments and does a pretty good job at winning those arguments in a factual and reasonable manner. He is generally smacking down people who you would claim that Chez is biased towards,

And yet it doesn't seem to be the case that Goofy is on the receiving end of any moderation. I wonder why that is?

If you just feel like attacking posters or Chez himself, simply keep it to the numerous threads available to you for such posts, and keep the content threads about content. Does not seem too difficult to me.

i don't really get paul's perspective, either. unchained is already closed. will never return.

you people all failed me there, by the way. so now it's just an alternative politics forum that nobody needs to read if they don't want. if chez gets tired of it, it will close unless somebody else wants to take his place. and as far as additional mods, now, fine with me as long as chez agrees.

Additional mods are needed to counteract a sole mod's tendency. Some of the so-called content threads aren't actually content but soap boxes for certain posters which should have the same rules as Chez's /\ threads. Another person determining what is and isn't content wouldn't hurt Chez or you.

Unchained at least had no pretense of being anything other than a place where we could fling mud freely.

Re: Politics version 7.0 discussion safe space

I disagree with your description but you can start what you are calling a soapbox thread as well Paul. There's no bias.

Anything that has a political context outside of 2+2 is likely to be fine. There are the PC rules but I doubt you're going to violate those.

It would be hilarious if Kerowo was brought back on as a co-mod for ChezzFront.

Chez you mod me in minutes but don't think modding the content threads within hours or days is your primary modding job. So your friends from SMP break your silly rules and get none of your silly corrections but call them out for it and you get temp banned. You really are bad at this.

Re: Politics version 7.0 discussion safe space

That's incorrect.

Some rules are a higher priority than others. For example, if you report hate speech then that will get addressed more urgently than most other things. the main moderation thread is also a high priority.

And no-one gets temp banned just for griping about the forum or how it is modded - not even when it's incessant and in the wrong places despite having a thread where they are very free to do so. Temp bans will only follow abuse of the timeouts from threads.

You give me warnings for griping about the moderation all the time. Are you saying I can just ignore these?

Call it whatever insulting name you want chez, preventing someone from posting in a thread is a temp ban.

You will get timeouts if you ignore those warnings.

You could just gripe about the moderation in the thread provided for griping about the moderation - that seems more sensible but it's up to you.

Which thread is that chez? I got a time out for complaining about the modding in a moderation thread. Why do you need 3 threads for moderation?
