Too Many Posts Getting Trashed?

    In the last little while I have noticed that there are a Lot of posts simply being sent to trash when a simple fix of an icon or a couple clicks to move it to the proper section is all that is needed.

    I have posted in the past and again just the other day to one of Ladybbirds threads that I usually FIX any post that is from a new member who has less then 10 posts that has a Wrong Icon, Bad Title, Live Links or is posted in Wrong Section and then send that member a polite PM explaining what I have changed and why and ask them to be more careful in the future, and if it continues in future posts that they will receive a Warning Infraction and then if it still continues then their posts are moved to the "RECYCLE BIN" for them to fix themselves...

    Posts with Live Links are still sent to 'Recycle Bin' (unless they are Porn, Phishing links or Fakes) which gives the member a chance to Edit/Code the links and asked to be moved back to forum.

    What confuses me........ is that once you are in the thread to look at it, It takes the same 2 clicks to either move it to the proper section/fix icon as it would to move it to Trash....

    Personally, I do not agree with trashing a post and sending the poster a PM or Warning Infraction telling them to "re-post" it with the chance of it being posted incorrectly again even after giving suggestions as to why it was trashed in the first place...

    I have received a lot of PM's from frustrated members complaining about posts being removed without any notice and how it can be corrected.... Lately, it has come to the point where members are sending me PM's either with the link of their post or their post in the PM asking if it is correct and OK to post.... This is what we do not need.


    Agreed, the more experienced poster here should already know the rules, but I have also fixed their posts and sent them a PM asking to be more aware when posting as I just fixed one of their posts and give a Warning in PM and usually get a grateful reply.

    Granted we do not need to fix every post that has errors, but fixing a few and sending a PM should fall into the category of 'being of help' or 'Moderating', since that is what we were asked to do....



    Please look at Pisko's post here in STAFF ANNOUNCEMENTS..... to re-familiarize yourself with what was asked of us back in May..

    Thank you so much for this excellent thread Just, I have replied within your points, it certainly clarifies things and will make things an awful lot easier. How on earth can we be expected to work as a team when everyone is doing it "their" way and in different strokes for different folks. I had already read Pisko's thread.

    Let's just "Hope" we can all follow your and Pisko's wise and learned suggestions and work together as a happy team and enjoy working this site and making it the very best it deserves to be. (When hopefully, all the repairs are done). I do hope my suggestions above and in my thread did not offend anyone, it is certainly not my intention to do so, and I hope I do not appear too "brash" for a newbie Mod on here. I "Just" wish for us all to get along and create a nice atmosphere so we can also have some fun together, you are such a nice bunch and we have already had some good laughs

    both have a good point . but lol .. I fix posts and trash posts. Its very frustrating when you fix or move a post and a member just keeps breaking rules . In most cases before i trash a post i check there posting history and ip info see if they have more than one id on here .. When going through all new posts its hard to send everyone a pm . I have no problem with another mod who wants to fix a post i trashed .It's called team work and we should all work as a team . If i give a warn and poster ignores it then i may hand out a temp ban and trash posts ..

    Ladybbird - thewin165 just posted 5 theads in Divx without post icons. He's already received 2 infractions about that. You want to go ahead and fix those posts and send him a love note?

    just to add to my post ,, when a poster is deliberately and it's obvious he/she is posting in wrong sections with post after post or auto posting , yes i warn or ban. but i said i always check there history and ip to see whats up. just found another in app section with 4 login ids.

    # downgt 118.71.132.56
    # khwarez 118.71.132.56
    # Mrwarezpro 118.71.132.56
    # mylove8889 118.71.132.56

    Bottom line is were here to moderate site , help out when we can . Were not here to trash all posts , we want posts on site that are good and clean , this way site can grow and members know when they come here posts are in correct section with proper post icons etc. You may see a post in trash and wounder why , check there history , far to often i find double/ triple posting , many ids etc.Some just dont get it . you hand out a warn and they ignore it . when i warn i send this , i remove what does not apply this way they know why they got an infraction

    post trashed > read & respect rules
    infraction given for following reason/s
    post in proper sections
    use proper post icon
    put date in thread title
     
  9. fixed 2 with wrong icons in divx downloads the guy had 270+ posts
    i never told him off or gave him an infraction though
    :O)

    Guys, we do not have to explain every move we make. We were only assigned to be mods after careful observation and trust. Obnoxious mods have a way of disappearing after a short while. I expect it won't be long...

    Sorry - that was not meant for you, Omni. You've been doing an outstanding job here. Seriously!

    Here's what I mean - Omni, you fixed the post icon on this post:

    http://www.forumdivx.com/divx-download/1171786-brothel-2008-dvdrip-xvid-vomit.html

    and on another by the same poster without giving infractions. He posted again after that and still didn't use a post icon. If we just clean up after people, they will continue doing wrong. If we make them clean up their own mess and maybe give an infraction they will start posting right.

    That's not saying there was anything wrong with the way you handled that - there wasn't. But I will continue to trash posts and give infractions to let people know that they need to take care of their own actions. And if someone wants to come behind me and un-trash posts and send the posters love letters that's up to them.

    Dont be sarky with me now foto, you wont get anywhere. Everyone else is being pleasant in this discussion. I know your domains before you started on here, so please show me more respect. As I have said before, I am a newbie on here but not to moderating.

    The problem I am trying to make to you, is that how the heck can folk learn when you just trash their threads into garbage and also into recycle bin without any message. I agree if they are persistant offenders then trash and take action, I am not disagreeing with that at all, but the bally rate folk are being banned is incredible, infractions yes for persistent offenders but not banning. You are throwing away and detering good uploaders from coming back, how on earth can that be good for the site for just a small thing like icons.

    The other thing you are not taking into account is that if you check their situ (IPs), you will see that many are not from an English speaking country so probably dont understand the site rules and formats. As I have said before there are certain sections that do not have an assigned icon, so what the heck are folks supposed to do?

    I really cannot understand that you as a Supermod would not want to encourage more threads/posts/participants, hence making the site grow and be even better.

    I have told Hope and Xanax that I want to start encouraging more donations, but how can I do that when uploaders are being treated so badly? Do you know that the software to stop all the spammers and crap ads on the site cost a fortune and they need more $$$$ to do that. Perhaps I should have explained all that on here before, then you might understand the reason for my threads.

    You probably dont know the history of this site, before you even started on staff, well I do and I would not like anything like that to happen again.

    I only want the best for this site and trigger happy on the Mod buttons is not good for it. We should listen to Pisko and itisjust.

    Keep going dear, I dont know why you need to make such nasty remarks,, you must be very unhappy about something to act like that. I just laugh, wish you would too a bit more, you would feel much happier you know.
    We are discussing a serious matter here that affects the site, not love letters and I think we should be guided by itisjust and Pisko's good instructions/advice.

    Hmmm, trashing games threads is a hobby of mine (which I've missed terribly lately) :D

    I think I see some kinda Celtic alliance forming somewhere..........any chance this half-blood can join?

    Yeahhhhhhhhhh for sure, as long as you stop the trashing unnecessarily. LOLOLOLOLOL No man in his right mind wants a woman nagging him. Get the bally beers in will ya, I'm gasping, although a wee drop of the hard stuff would be better.

    Nice to see you back Dead, I hope you are recovering, just take it easy and dont take on too much.

    I was taught years ago by the very best guru that owns sites, that if something upsets you, just walk away from it and ignore whomever has done it. That was excellent advice, cos the internet can be a very nasty thing, when those that are disturbed or unhappy in their lives in some way, use the net to attack others as it is anonymous and no come back on them for their comments/actions sometimes.
    Believe me I have had it, as in the fta world there are not many female staff compared pro rata and if men sometimes have problems with their women they go for our throats.

    They dont know how tough us Celts can be, but I usually turn them around with kindness and humour. Some however can't be helped, which is a shame, as life is so precious and should not be wasted by having your heart filled with bitterness and hate.

    I treasure life greatly. a couple of years ago I fractured my skull and developed a hematoma. (This affected my heart and I have had 3 heart attacks and recently had heart surgery). I had to have 2 brain operations and lost my long term memory for a year. It came back somewhat but the short term memory didnt and it is a nightmare, sometimes in mid sentence I forget what I am saying. The worst part is sometimes I dont even remember friends I have not seen for a while and have to either pretend or tell them the story. I lost many things, I used to speak French, Italian and Spanish well, but most of that is gone. It is tough because I live in a Spanish speaking country and I cant relearn it as the short term memory wont retain the knowledge.

    That is why I believe it enjoying precious life as much as I can and being kind to folk (although I always was)
    But watch out, hurt me or mine and the mama instinct comes out. I have not only used my Irish tongue, but the arms get loaded and I have used them in this country. You need to sometimes, which is hilarious as before I moved to the caribbean I never believed in arms!!! lolololol.
