Change in moderation policy

When I first took the helm of this community I thought the rules were a little too strict. The forum were opened up so members could be a little more free with their post.

Things have gone too far with the trolling, rudeness, hateful comments, and now racism.

Tone it down guys and gals.

There is no need in racial slurs. There is no need in hateful comments. There is no need in being overly rude.
  • Keep all rude and hateful comments confined to the general discussion and politics sections.
  • No trolling.
  • No racism or racist comments.


If you have any questions or comments please post them.

I agree.

We probably need a couple of more moderators.

I think JRedHorse would be an excellent choice. I guess it depends on how much work it would be. We shouldn't have someone extreme left or right.

A leftist moderator could evacuate the site quickly, as there are plenty of other sites to go to. Too far right is a problem too. Maybe everyone needs a single veto vote, in a poll thread. Or the most active posters have a veto. Of course the most prominent posters in the Political forum would fall on the sword, myself included. Someone would take them out with a veto.

This is a gun forum and the moderators should be folks who mainly post in the gun forums.

Anyway, the ugliness has to go. Many threads need to be cleaned up or deleted.

As JRedHorse volunteered grumpy for the job, I think it's only fair to nominate JRedHorse.


Side note: Anyone who insists on maintaining an ignore list for real, and isn't just playing at it like most seem to be, isn't going to be able to do a very good job.

For whatever its worth, in my opinion a good moderator does not have to have any knowledge whatsoever of firearms, the only thing a good moderator needs is impartiality. Period. Without impartiality one cannot be an effective moderator.

Unfortunately this is almost an impossible attribute to find among the members here.

Hah.

Kevin can do whatever he wants. His board, his rules. He doesn't need anybody's final approval.

No, that is not what he is doing.

Putting those whose posts annoy you on "ignore" is one thing; making a production about how everyone else should also put certain people on "ignore" is something else.

And it isn't about trolling, it's about conformity. If it were about trolling, the list would include many of the same names as those calling for putting people on "ignore."

How is someone who tries to enforce conformity of thought and opinion in this way going to exercise impartiality?

I appreciate being mention , but I do got a lot of irons in the fire and would sooner be more of a joker here , like I use to be !

I will be busy going on fishing and hunting trips plus bicycling when not watching my grand kids in sports .

Also I'm busy chasing a wild woman in Omaha , so yes I'm in rut a lot and that may cause me to not focus to what everyone here thinks is fair !

I will tame myself down , starting now ( check the time , date and whatever ) and go back to the gun threads more when not doing many of the above mention things !


Wishing everyone well !

Put me down as 1 Vote for No Mods. Not that voting matters in a Dictatorship, but every so often the Monarchy appeases the peons to discourage Revolt.
I dont think the Poli board should be moderated unless somebody has a complete and total meltdown. We rarely see those here. For example. I dont remember who the poster was but a few years ago somebody tried to do a board wipe on the mini14 forum. Posting multiple bogus threads "tantrum style". That should be the only thing moderated in the Poli section.

Heres another situation I hope Kevin takes into consideration. For sake of argument I will direct this at myself

There are people here that do not like me.
There are people here I do not like

Who ever becomes mod MUST remember just because you dont agree with somebody's point of view you cannot ban them out of spite.

For example... **folks.. roll with me for a second**

Durango, Free, Carp and I have been known to go around in circles. If this is done in the appropriate section I really dont think anything should be done. If it spills over into a non-sht talkin section then action should be taken.

I also think that the actions taken should fit what was done. Please future mod dont "bring down the ban hammer" as you have all been saying lately. Attempt to pacify the situation first with...hmmm.. some sort of moderation<--see what I did there folks.... If that doesnt work perhaps a time out is in order.

This place sucked right around the regime change. Old mods were up in arms. New comers were getting banned for stupid stuff. Then the mods all disappeared... and this place went to sht again for under moderation.

We have been through alot over the years. Owner ship change. Multiple invasions. Troll wars.... This is still a great forum though

Well whofarted, how do you expect to deal with the Old and Experienced vs the New and Unbridled situations that arise within the firearms sections?
Let say an Old Drop your A.L.I.C.E and become mobile person, gets into a Heated Discussion with one of the Young Carry 76 lbs worth of everything because it's to important to Drop Folks. Neither is wrong but the two viewpoints don't coexist?
Who gets the time out or worse, and who makes the call?
