Moderator Guidelines

Postby Sonny on Sun Jan 23, 2005 2:00 am

Some basic guidelines for the various forum moderators....

1. Treat the moderators with respect.

2. Do not post messages attacking the moderators or site administrators.

3. All of the moderators on this message board are volunteers. They provide their time and their good judgment to this website free of charge. They do not make the message board rules; they only enforce the rules. They do not deserve to have scorn heaped upon them either publicly or privately.

4. If you think something requires the attention of the moderators, please send them a Private Message (PM). This will send a message to the moderator so they can address the problem next time they log on to their computer.

5. Please be aware that moderators are not expected to be online all the time, and therefore they cannot respond immediately to every problem that arises on this discussion board. If you send an alert or complaint to a moderator, please give that moderator sufficient time to respond. Do not assume that a moderator is ignoring your concerns merely because he or she does not respond as quickly as you would like.

6. When a moderator enforces the message board rules, members are expected to respect their authority and abide by their decisions. If you disagree with a moderator's decision, you are encouraged to politely explain why you disagree OFF-LINE. (Off-line means email or private message, not on the message board!) Do not send rude, dismissive, or disrespectful responses to the moderators.

7. If you think a moderator has acted inappropriately, please contact one of the administrators (sonny or mholtz) privately via PM or email so we can deal with it.

8. Do not publicly post private messages you receive from moderators and administrators.
