Discussion of Moderator Actions

Post by rwo power on Thu Feb 11, 2016 9:32 am

Okay folks, after thorough discussion we decided to set up this thread as an experiment. If we find that it is abused or the discussion turns into finger pointing or name calling, we will close it as fast as it was opened, so please read this intro post thoroughly before posting here.

And while we are at it, as a reminder, here are the Forum Rules.

The GL staff wants to give users a platform here where they can issue constructive criticism and give us input and feedback how we can improve the way we are moderating this forum. We hope that we can channel the feedback in this thread so that we get a better understanding of the problems the users might have and where we can explain on what basis we came to our decisions.

This thread is only meant for constructive input and not uncontrolled venting between specific persons. Mind you - you reap what you sow, and if people start dealing out insults or bicker aimlessly around, we will deal out warnings and dock percentages here, too. We don't want endless arguing about actions either, if we explained what we did. After all, sometimes opinions might vary, but we do have the last word.

This platform is not meant to become a war zone between users and staff, but a place where you can politely inquire about actions you didn't understand or give us input where we can improve our performance and your GL experience.

If you have certain questions that individually involve only one mod, you might also consider asking via PM, as sometimes things can better be addressed on an individual basis and not publicly.

If you want to address some specific action where you think the explanation could benefit the rest of the forum, please don't forget to add the link to the post in question, so that we can take a look and know what you are talking about.

And now we're hoping for a civil discussion here. We will closely monitor this thread and make sure that things won't get out of hand here.

Why is making a another account a permabannable offense? Other forums are doing just fine without the punishment being so harsh.

Definitely needs a change IMO. I've seen trolling on here that deserves a permaban more than someone like Vibe did for example.

I think RGs reply in the "Good night, sweet prince" thread should be pretty clear on this:
@RealGunner wrote:We have talked about multi-accounts before in length. There is no such thing as 'creating a 2nd account in good humour' or 'severe punishment to permanently ban for a multi'. How about we all make a 2nd account in good humour? and just let everyone get on with it without banning anyone because it's too 'severe'. It's Impractical and stupid. I don't know why it's so hard to understand.

About the trolling - if you think there is too heavy trolling, you can simply use the "Report" function (the tiny downward pointed triangle with an exclamation mark) next to the edit button, so that we can take a look into it.

As mods can't read each and every post that is made, we need the help of the users in this. Moreover, if for example I read a post about some PL team or so, I wouldn't understand that something particular might be "trolling" as I simply don't feel about certain things like an avid fan of a certain club, so there needs to be a mod who is involved with a specific team to look into it and evaluate how bad the trolling is and whether it really needs taking action. So maybe if you report a post, you might add a line or two why you consider this trolling, so that it helps understanding the problem.

I think I speak for a lot of us when I say we appreciate the work the mods do and their effort for transparency. Thanks to Rwo and everyone behind this thread!

Someone implemented a thing where when you type 'P e p' it's changed to 'cowardiola'.

I feel this is an unacceptable abuse of power, violating equal treatment of clubs.
I feel personally offended by this, as I can't type the name of my beloved club's coach anymore without it being altered into an insult.

Whoever did this should change it ASAP, and then step down from moderating/admin duties.

I'm serious.

Come on Hans, you're never serious.

OT: Wow, didn't realize GL started taking baby steps towards democracy while I was away! Doff my hat to the admin/mod team for the transparency!

Don't look into it, remove it.

If I find out it was you behind this I'm retracting every bit of my support for Arsenal.
Then you'll not win the league, not this season nor ever.
You'll get smashed by Barca.
Then they'll take Özil AND Bellerin from you.

I'll investigate who did this. My suspicion lies on JD Thumbs up

Outrageous abuse of power. I feel severely victimized.

We Bayern fans are a tiny minority, and when did it become fashionable to bash and insult Pep Guardiola?

Best coach in the world, nice and respectful guy, didn't hurt anyone, positive football, interesting tactics, great to watch.

I think RG should resign.

He must resign unless he apologizes to Pep, me, Bayern_Munich and Robespierre.

If anything his human side off the pitch is even worse than his fraudulent side on the pitch.

Unfortunately the admins don't trust me with power so it couldn't have been me.

Agreed CSpurs is the most likely culprit tbh, just like him to throw everyone off with his fake Barca supporting tirade.

Incredible nerve from RG to be lying like that in the new DOMA thread.

What's next, you'll implement a Villas-Boas -> Fraudas-Flopas automatic change and tell us CBarca's responsible for that one too?
