Do mods actually read every post in the fs/ft forum? (no this isnt in relation to scammers!)


No they don't. :)

No they don't. :)


just wondered cos yesterday around lunch i misposted a post in ft/fs instead of misc and asked for it to be removed on the tread but its still there:roll:
banned#5
no they arent staffed unless reported, although im sure they will now say they are, think it depends on what day it is;-)

Even when reported, they stick their bit in and thats that, never to be looked at again, as i have come to find pretty pointless wasting your time hitting the triangle really, the rules are being continually flounced, although most breaking them see them as petty unless its others breaking them.

this morning two members have been gven one day bans for selling trade, threads locked but still being advertised, what the hell is the point:? so your not allowed to deal by thread, but we will lock it and encourage you members to deal by pm, although dealing by pm is against forum rules, although once again what they eye dont see aye:roll:



Edit - So you do read in here, just not reply

The point is so that people can look back and see why someone was banned! So that all the info is open and there for you to see!

Just some more info for you sassie. When a post is reported, a mod steps in to look at the thread. If something is done, you will likely see a post there from the mod. If other regular members come along and keep on saying the same thing, these posts will probably be removed as they could be construed as thread spoiling.

For any infraction of the for sale forum rules, a permanent note is put on a members account, which only the mods can see. This means if anything further happens, action can be taken as appropriate, based on previous history as well. So your comment of "they stick their bit in and thats that" is really unjustified.

Recently, we having been giving out 1 day bans for a primary breach of the rules. As I said above, a note is put on the account, so further breaches are likely to have more serious consequences, leading to longer bans, and a possible eventual site wide ban.

its ok all the stuff going off behind the scenes but we dont see any of that, at least when the traders list was there the members could see something was being done, now as its all behind the scenes we dont know if we report something if anything is done, can be kinda off putting reporting as you think why bother..

was a thread other day with NUMEROUS blatant rules brole by op yet looks like thread just got pulled.. now we not talking about 1 rule here we on about a few in one go.

[COLOR="Red"]Emma, i was not referring to other members posting the same, i was referring to reporting a thread, a mod posting in a thread then never going back to check the answer given[/COLOR]

[COLOR="red"]So your intention of leaving their thread up, is so others can see why they are banned, yet most is done behind the scenes, yes i can see a method here, NOT[/COLOR]

With the old system, we didn't know about anything happening until a member was banned.

Having a "Rogues gallery" is probably better, but sometimes people were put on their for making genuine mistakes, and we never knew about it, so would avoid them unecessarily, at least this way they can serve their ban "almost" unknown.

Follow the guidelines set out, and all is well and good. :)

But if they are banned, they will be seen trading won't they?

how will we know they are banned? the traders list isnt used anymore.. thats the problem..

If they are banned then they can't trade? It's quite simple...

It says 'Banned' under their username?

Like I said, the list is probably better, but whatever is done, someone will complain about it.
If HUKD gave everyone £10, there would be a flood of complaints from people who wanted it as two fivers instead of a single tenner. :)

and if there not banned but dont post a sale then whose to know the difference ?

with the traders list in place we could see things were being done, now we dont know we can only assume. can be kind of demoralising reporting things if you dont know anything is being done as you think why should i bother.

for a site ban it does, not for trading,,

i was saying the list is still needed first of.. ( why would someone complain we have the list ? unless they was on it )

I thought that if they were banned from trading, they weren't able to post in the "For Sale" forum anyway, you've confused me now.

Do the proper checks, and you will drastically reduce the chance of getting stung is the bottom line.

they cant, but as i said above what if they just didnt post how would you know the difference between tehm being banned and just not posting.

the bottom line is im not even on about me buying anything let alone getting stung lol.

im on about us the members who report things we see in the for sale section that breaks the rules or look dodgy etc, it can feel pointless if it seems nothing is being done.

If they can't respond in the "For Sale" forum, then what is the problem? Whether they are banned or not is irrelevant isn't it? :?

If you want a big Sign saying "Scammer" and a Blue Peter badge for your trouble, then you are in the wrong place. I think the mods have said something is done when a thread is reported.

It's more important for something to be done, than "Be seen" to be done. :)

maybe also helpful to let them know why they are banned - lol

going round in circles to be honest, you think its all good then fine, i think the traders list or something should be re instated. 9/10 things from teh for sale section are reported by the members,i see it if they get fed up reporting then it leaves the section more open to abuse. but hey, if im not going to get my blue peters badge then im not even gona concern myself with it ;-)

not unless they check all their threads to find out why, probably logged in and found they where banned, assumed it was for the dupe threads - dont think there is a reason given when you log in, hence why people dont know why they have been banned:roll:

I thought that they were sent an e-mail when they are banned. He/she responded in their thread the reason why they thought they were banned.

We could debate this all day, do the relevant checks etc, and all will be fine.

Cheerio. :)

no, just a ban i believe, unless your extra special;-)

Actually if you try to log in to a banned account then you *should* be told why you are banned (a description we enter in - not some automated dribble).

I'm not entirely sure if this covers a FS/FT specific ban as that may just say "you are not permitted to post in this forum".

Although that person was on a full ban at the time AFAIK.

I can verify that when you are banned and try to log in..instead of taking you to the redirect screen telling you 'thankyou for logging in....blah, blah, blah'. It takes you directly to the same screen and in the top left hand corner it reads, you are banned, the reason why, and when the ban will be lifted. You are not able to go anywhere else in the forum then :-D
