This post sparked my question:

Martian Stacey said:
The removal of the thread had nothing to do with "legal trouble". It was purely a decision made by a forum moderator who believed the thread was getting out of hand.
My question is- when threads are removed/deleted/closed, is it the decision of one moderator, a group of moderators, a couple moderators?

I just wondered because when a big thread gets closed, after being open for a long time, I assumed that the moderators as a group chose to close it. But, according to Martian Stacey, this was not the case in the Sharapova thread.

I'm not upset/mad/trying to be offensive in anyway, I just was curious as to how it works.


And what if one moderator disagrees with another? Or is it- all moderators stick together and support the others, even if they disagree with the decisions??

They don't sit around all discussing every action before taking it - otherwise nothing would ever happen.

If a thread gets closed after being open for some time, it's usually because it has gotten out of hand or it's only just come to a moderator's attention. Sometimes a thread is being watched closely to see which direction it takes before any action is taken.

Every action is documented in the moderator forum though and is open to criticism from the other moderators. If someone disagrees, they say so and occasionally that leads to decisions being reversed after discussion.

Generally speaking though, most of the moderators appear to be of the same mind when it comes to moderating decisions from what I've seen.

Hmm... interesting. I'm glad the decisions get reviewed and are opened to criticism :devil:

Thanks Kart :wavey:

If you wish to air grievances you should do so privately by sending a private message to an administrator, or, if it's the administrator you are unhappy with, you can contact another administrator or the webmaster(s) Steve and truebluefan.

A list of forum leaders can be found here:
