Mod Abuse

I am about to rush off to class but I'd like to say that I think that some of the mods have been very abusive of their power and closing and deleting threads that do no harm. They also like to delete posts for no reason. The particular mod that I am discussing in this case is Bibi.
This mod deleted 3-4 of my posts and this is what I remember of them...
1.
2. (Something to frontier like) I thought posts were being deleted frontier. And you said it was Bibi?
3. Oh I get it now, Bibi is a Justine fan,
I remember the fourth one as well but that deletion was justified.

So I would just like to know why some mods are not corrected for not being impartial.
I really feel like some of you guys are just abusing your power because of personal opinions,

Thanks for the reply and the close of this thread that I know is coming,
Why not leave this thread open for discussion,

Rena's Army, Ana and Vika!!!

Re: Mod Abuse

At least your post is a lot more articulate than your last contribution to this forum.

If there are questions regarding deletion of a post (or more posts) contact the moderator by PM. There is no need to waste several posts in a thread that is about a totally different topic. You may still not agree in the end, but there is room for discussion always. Only thing is you do it in a reasonable fashion. Hurling accusations about will not get you anywhere.

I will leave the thread open for now. But don't make me regret it later then.

2nd.

Almost all of the Mods (except few) NEVER awnser PM's and even less if you're complaining about something they did.

I already said something about that in my reply. If you send a reasonable message, you will no doubt get an answer. I have seen cases though where people first either hurl abuse or badrep the mod in question. One should not expect a lot in those cases.

I've seen mods who are like that.

Is there any way to complain about a moderator behaviour and get them stripped of their moderator status?

I can think of two moderators who are biased againsts players they don't like and if you try to discuss it with them they act like their above it all.

Note: I'm not talking about ^bibi^

I understand your point, but I would like to offer another perspective on that too. Mods and admins have a special responsibility. Yet some people think that this means they can never voice an opinion for this reason. It's true to say that when a mod or admin acts in an official capacity that opinion should not come into play. Sometimes they are human too and there can be a fine line between the two roles. Mods and admins are not above criticism in any way though.

Complaining about mods or admins can be done by reporting the relevant post, as with any other poster. Stripping of the mod status can happen in extreme cases.

I will add to James' post that it is also a possibility to PM any of the admins with links to posts that prove your point

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Re: Mod Abuse

Bibi's losing his mind. He's a nice guy but such a HORRIBLE moderator! Having him among the staff is a travesty IMO.

I'm not bashing anybody, I'm just expressing my personal opinion on the topic. Plus I sent him a PM like 10min ago, I'm waiting for his answer.

Re: Mod Abuse

PM answered, and no I'm not a girl lol (lots of people seem to think that lol)

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Re: Mod Abuse

Some of the posters here are ridiculous. Don't complain about moderators when 50% of your posts are nothing but insults against other posters and trying to antagonize people.


As you can tell, I'm not as diplomatic as James or Linda. And based on the crap bibi puts up with in GM, I wouldn't blame him for not responding to some of you.
