I've seen on a couple of other forums a thread where the admins declare bans and warnings (or users muted) given and give a one sentence explanation as to why for example "User01: Two weeks ban for talking trash about other users (sometimes user names are told to clarify the decision). This is so that there wouldn't be rumours circulating and bad blood about anything. When people know, there's no more questions. What do you think about this?
I don't get what you are trying to say.
I don't get why this thread has gone 21 pages long,I don't get what the big deal is about this new system. I didn't like the previous idea of some selective posters getting together and dish about other posters in some sort of secret thread. Looks like Maria and Thomas found a new solution to this problem as they need help with managing board, and right so, they decided to tell everyone what they are doing and let everyone know who will be the board helpers and what will be their role. I am fine by this because I don't expect moderators to sit all day long to manage this giant board and now there is no secrecy like before. I also trust moderators won't tolerate unnecessary bitching behind other posts back by board helpers . If I see any of these board helper s not following the rules I will report then to moderators and ifI feel they are being favoured by the moderators I will take this up here and share it with everyone.
What I an trying to say is that if you have issues their is a civil way of resolving them and taking shots at each other is not the way to do it. I don't like the tone of a lot posters accusing others of all sorts of things and yes I don't care if these shots are directed towards old or board helpers and not on me or new posters. I just don't like this attitude and atmosphere. I didn't like the old r secret board for the very same reason because I didn't like anyone dishing on others and I don't like it now when things are getting personal for older ones.
RD is supposed to be fun and entertaining for me. IMO it's very easy to use, you come, you dish on royals, you don't dish on other posters, if you think anyone is out of line report it to moderator, if you don't like any particular poster or their posts use ignore button. It's very simple to me and not rocket science but these personal attacks are getting worse and it feels like high school to me irrespective of who is being targeted. I don't know about anyone else but I am too old and tired for t this kind of childish attitude. If this goes on I Will also think about about posting here because I really don't want to join a board where a bunch of strangers take shots at each others. RD is losing it's essence and identity with this kind of behaviour. I have no idea why this thread has been dragged along so many pages and this is not good at all for this board IMO.
