dont think applying rules to some and not others helps the place either
#3
more leaving then being pushed ,just like the UK
[admin]#4
suspensions and bannings are being handed out wth minimal notice or warnings.


I think we give members fair warning and a fair number of chances before we ban. Suspensions have a end date and are not final.

From what I've seen the misc forum tends to be lightly moderated which encourages some to run and then keep pushing closer and closer to the edge until someone goes over. Rinse and repeat.

yeah...so why not punish them rather than the people they are pushing?

I have an e-mail from contact us that basically says you can troll and bait all you want now...just dont mention there name :roll:

Well said

Even though Admin is fit, i am still mega miffed that people can go around calling slappers etc, and they are not punished for it. Wrong IMO!
#8
Its like football refereeing, all we ask is for consistency.
Threats should be dealt with severely, not brushed aside.
I WOULD be punished if I sent a threat.

Because we don't have the time to dissect every 10,000 reply pub thread to figure out who started what when how. It's up to each member to decide what they are going to respond to and how and then take responsibility for that.

Been saying this for a while now. Lack of consistency on application and clarification of rules only leads to situations like these.

seems some ppl can stay close to the edge though and others just need to something minor to tick off a mod...shouldnt u have two mods decide whther a infraction is necessary..otherwise it just becomes dependent on if that mod has issues/bad mood with u..its an unfair policy.

and like i said u can dish out punishments but cant help when u promise u will look into things.

called you worse than that - if you are that bothered about what people say on a website - then you all seriously need to get a life - they don't know you and as the saying goes - maybe the truth hurts

On grey issues the mods discuss infractions together before making a decision so it's not just one grumpy mod.

I find it poor when some can get away with almost anything and others are delt with harshly.. I like HUKD's a lot but the site has got a whole lot poorer today with the inconsistency of the powers to be. I read somewhere that the mods had not actually meet each other face to face. Perhaps now's the time so that they can thrash out whats acceptable and what is not. At the moment what some mods think is done in jest others think it's worthy of a suspension or ban. It's the inconsistency that really does need sorting..

To be honest, if i was getting rude comments made towards me, I'd want to act upon it, not be told 'get a life'.

Take on more mods then if the ones you currently have can't moderate fairly due to more posts than they can manage?

Moderating is a thankless task, however some decisions on here only serve to wind people up - look at dcx earlier, his thread about unlocking was closed - he asked why days ago, thread moved from feedback to misc (so obviously had been read), no mod commented, and still hasn't, preferring to suspend him than just say why it was closed.

You need some new mods and some mods need to go.


+1

but personally I think only 1 needs to go, and 1 needs to toe the line (but not much tho)....the rest I cant grumble about as I've never had any interaction with them to determine how they manage situations.
banned#38
can you tell if someone has spammed as the threads have been expired or spammed by useless freaks
banned#39
there has always been inconsistencies on hukd and always will be, been many a thread about it and it never changes anything, as this one wont although it may get someone back so as to shut the rest up so to speak

you clearly haven't understood what i'm getting at - this is a website - the things you write on here make you out to be a dirty little scrubber (rightly or wrongly but if you write these things then you have to accept the consequences) but if you take to heart the comments people make about what you have written then you either need to think about what you are typing because you dont like getting told what you sound like - or you think 'sod them' they dont know me so why should i care - personally i take no offence to any comments people make on here about me because i only reply to the ones i know i can wind up (and it worked didn't it because you took time out to send me a silly private message - or two - and then reported me - again taking up your time - not mine)... So my suggestion to everyone that gets wound up over other peoples comments is unless its true about you - ignore it - cos the more you reply the more the wnd up will happen
