Good Afternoon all
I'm creating this thread to address a number of issues. Firstly being that I fear we didn't properly introduce the two new moderators that we've added. They are
I'd like to thank them both for volunteering to help clean up the abundance of spam that we were having.
That said, I have seen a lot of reports of deleted threads and heavy moderation.
As such I'd like to open this discussion so that we can clear the air and get this relation restarted on the right foot so to speak.
Members and Mods are asked to air their grievances in a polite and rational manner. I ask that no one dismiss anyone else's arguments and points, if you can't respond to an argument then don't. The goal of this discussion is to come to an agreement that can serve the best interest of all involved, if it starts to derail and over heat then I'll start pm-ing those involved and if need be close the thread temporarily. I've posed the suggestion to the mod team of having a sub section of general discussion that only members can access where hot button topics can be discussed. That way members and new guests can peruse the site unimpeded by arguments that may get deemed offensive. So maybe we can start with this option as a jump off point and go from there. We're all adults here and this is a community, so lets get things back on track.
