Hmmm, must have forgotten that one, too much text inbetween.


Opening up this anouncement- thread is a veeeery good idea! But why don't you take it further? I just got a bunch o' ideas:

Split the anouncement- thing in two threads: Re-name the SinBin thread, and use it but for announcing SinBin sentences also for announcing any other things.

Open up another permanent thread that is open for members to comment the SinBin etc. sentences announced in the other thread. By doing so you could avoid countless threads being opened when there is any trouble, and the discussion and solving of such issues would get much easier!

Bob,

I'm sure with the new spirit of things around here, on topic comments will be appreciated by the mods...

The points and the solutions raised all seem very sensible to me, and a good way forward. Heres's to the future

BTW, anyone else think of mods as being this-

I doubt that it ever has been the other way

The tradition heralded a turning point, a celebration - The day that marks the return of the sun and all that is good. Given the quickness with which most of us condemn, there is a certain wisdom and humanity in such traditions.
Has anyone extended a hand in the same spirit to Dice45 or Chris8? Ignoring the rights or wrongs of their actions, these individuals have been treated pretty shabbily by some of the inhabitants. Is there only to be forgiveness for Fred or does this extend to people who have devoted themselves to the health of this place?

I can't express my thoughts directly to Dice45 since his member information does not permit email messages. It doesn't bode well for the future of this place when becoming an ex-moderator means being cast out into the void.

Phil

I think that might get too complicated, best leave the sinners where they are, I suspect otherwise it might get too difficult to find important things, although maybe an Announcements thread is a good idea.

From reading the thread, I think Dave has this in mind already.

I have opened a new thread on my take on Mods to save cluttering up this important one

Au contraire, I think it would get easier to combine the SinBin with the announcements-thread. The Sinners could get something new like the top10 poster chart. Announcements of punishment would be made in the Announcements- thread, for a quick view you would just check the charts for any changes...

The cast out was done by the members themselves. It is not up to us and they acted on calculated decisions in both cases. If it makes them feel better, I don't think we should talk about it any longer. It just puts them in a wrong spotlight.

Default You guys are good

Nice!

I posted a somewhat sarcastic response when I thought you guys were going to go the other way and be more rule bound. Thanks for showing me how off the mark I was. I'll gladly eat those words.

Congrats Dave, Peter, Jason and all. You have a great site here.

The ultimate test will be if it can teach me anything.

Welcome back everyone.

Cheers
Craig Ryder

I will abide by that. I don't know what was going on behind the scenes anyway, just what was publicly posted. I do know that if the things that were being said about Dice45 were said about me... see ya. I do wish there was some way for to contact Dice45, but perhaps you are right and that situation is beyond repair.

Before leaving this subject, How many ex-moderators are still active member. I know of three ex-moderators: Grey, Dice45 and Chris8. There has to be some way for a moderator to quit without it becoming awfull.

I would hate to lose you that way too Peter.

Phil

Phil,

Sometimes things just need time to heal. I'm sure if and when our lost souls ready they will come back.
