Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I'm very well aware that the PT do not take part in general board matters - I was there when the whole issue blew up - when the PT was created and there weren't any rules; we had to work them out. Anyway, did I mention the PT at all??? Now in theory, the DT are not supposed to take part in mod issue...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

5 years ago AVEN got 20,000 posts a month. Nowadays it gets 45,000 a month. Also, the Admod team is roughly the same size as it was 5 years ago. You have co-mods where there were none before, added 4 Declassification team yet the numbers are roughly the same :lol: Membership numbers are misleading,...

You will have been able to read my resignation thread and the one that triggered it - if you think that is acceptable behaviour by admods towards a vulnerable individual, well, I guess you may be on track to join the 'flog 'em and hang 'em' brigade :( . Do you really think that mass joining by admod...

Faeriefate - you've been a member here since 31 March; PiF was banned from AVEN long before that. How was he to contact you? Now, of course, much of AVEN is closed to him and other banned/non members - how are they to know how to contact you? When PiF says he cares about AVEN, he means it; as do I. ...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

How about a radical approach to things - only reports and disciplinary issues count as 'potential breach'. Anything affecting members should be discussed with members, we should be included rather than told ' admods have decided . Thing is admods used to listen to the members - remember the Grey For...

Re: The "safe place"

I know of one particular ex AVENite who is undergoing gender reassignment. It has been (and continues to be ) a difficult journey for her. In England you have to jump through all sorts of psychological evaluations and then live as your 'preferred' gender for at least a year. I wrote it as 'preferred...

Convention always was that new rules could not be applied retroactively. Admods are rather good at interpreting things to their own advantage.

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

To be honest, no. If the mod has done a good enough job they'll be re-elected. As you said, it works and works very well with the PT, so why should admods be any different? I've always said I couldn't stand for PT as I lack the imagination needed, I think most of the PT who stand for re-election get...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Traditionally member polls have been non binding (on the admods), but in the past we did take notice and managed to do things fairly quickly. I'm thinking of The Grey Area - something that Birdwing proposed, started a discussion thread conducted a poll and put it to admods. I think the forum itself ...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

It seems as though when they agree with what YOU want to do, it's the 'community's decision' (even though one poll ran for only FOUR days) but when the community wants something you don't, it's ignored and 'We know better' comes into play. I've written more than once n admods that you are CUSTODIANS...

Ciri made a vaid point though, don't you think? If A Pos members had done that on AVEN, we'd have been warned and banned in triple quick time. Their hypocrisy is showing.
