Re: Forum Moderators

I if catch you two fighting, I suspend both your accounts. I have so wanted to see something like that. It is also very tempting. My kamikaze plane is being fueled as I write this. I am kidding. <laugh> All the forum needs now is: "If I get any more complaints about you, MrSwiss, I will suspen...

Re: Forum Moderators

He clearly forgot the old adage: "Once a liar, always a liar." But I could not through with it and why I came clean. What we have is a pathetic excuse not to "come to some kind of understanding or compromise". It is academic because I have not withdrawn my resignation. I hung in...

Re: Forum Moderators

So far I have not contributed to any thread other than my resignation thread. However, I must say something with regard to Pritchard's last post. There is a variable missing from his equation when he posted the two links: I was not a moderator at the time. A Moderator's freedom of expression should ...

Re: Resignation

With imortis stepping up to the plate and counting_pine and coderJeff considering introducing additional moderators with specific responsibilities then this thread will have achieved something. Looking at MrSwiss' 'Forum Moderators' thread again it seems to me that the thought of my being a moderato...

Re: Resignation

MrSwiss has just posted Forum Moderators . Have a look he made some interesting observations. I am not interested in power as marcov thinks. I am not interested in taking credit for anything - as I have said on several occasions this past two years. I do not like being in the limelight - it brings m...

Re: Resignation

Then the forum maintainer can still kick him out. I may be wrong but I reckon counting_pine is a really nice guy and would not even throw Jack the Ripper out. What any organization should have is someone who is approachable, has a good sense of humor and not short of wit. However, if they are cross...

Re: Resignation

instead of taking it up with a moderator privately I have been around long enough to know that sometimes we have to go public. I may be wrong but I have this feeling that in the event of an election marcov will not vote for me. <laugh> moderators need a free hand Absolutely not. powerhungry diletta...

Re: Resignation

I think marcov was testing you for potential moderator material. I wonder if I passed. And to quote my favorite adage again, that chip on each shoulder will keep you level headed enough for the job.<test> Actually I could do with a chip in my right knee - they may help me walk straight. Did I pass?

Re: Resignation

An extension of the above protocol would be with regard to warnings. They too could remain for one year. In the event of another indiscretion which in of itself would normally require a warning then a penalty point should be issued. The penalty point would be treated as absorbing the earlier warning...

Re: Resignation

... I have to prioritize between writing code and resolving disputes on the forums. I often don't feel I know the best thing to say or do in conflicts, a non existing problem :-) To what extent I have no idea but the problem definitely exists. The fact that we don't see something is not evidence of...

Re: Resignation

Whether or not I get an invitation I should like to put forward an idea which may be acceptable to the membership. It is based upon the system used for issuing penalty points for Road Traffic Act violations here in the UK but with a safeguard. ---------- Penalty points remain for one year from the d...

Re: Resignation

democratically elect some people within the community I like the sound of that. Two, for example, could bounce ideas off each other with regard conflicts which are particularly problematic. This is surprising because I can not recall, ever, in this history of the forum, anyone willingly volunteerin...

Re: Resignation

@coderJeff Yeah, it was never my attention to push as hard as I did - I would have preferred not to but I figured that I had nothing to lose and, of course, it did work. I, and I am sure many others, were not aware of how much time you put into fb.net. In your best case scenario then you could be lo...

Re: Resignation

@Munair That is excellent advice and in line with what jj2007 and others have written. I don't care what people call me - I really don't. However, I do care how my code is described. It cannot defend itself but I can and came to its rescue when described as being not to be trusted. As a statement th...
