Make Shiachat Shiachat again

notme

We have given leeway for members to air their grievances in a polite and reasonable manner, but this is definitely not permission to condemn individual moderators or discuss specific details of a moderator action (beyond generalities). According to rule #9, discussions on moderator actions are to be discussed privately by PM.

Salaam- thanks Darth bro for starting this thread. Only a veteran member like yourself could start it, others who are not as equals as you are, would get banned. I’m not being sarcastic here, this is all I would says as my judgement on certain MODs on SC.

In real life, in my workplace, we get rid of managers who fire lots of people or under whom many employees quit in short period of time. We need to have the same mentality here on SC, just go back in the “banned” thread and fire all of the Mods who have banned the most amount of members. We don’t need to be mommie’d by a KG teacher who corners each and everybody on small infringes only to announce a ‘bring your favorite toy day’ to look good to parents. 

2. Number one being above, I think the Dev team went too overboard from the old SC look and feel. Currently things are all over, hard to find, (it took me three clicks to get to this most recent thread of yours). Site owners handed SC to trigger happy mommies (some baseball wielding dads too) and video game developers and this is what we got. 

3. The only reason I now come here time and again is to get ideas on a few things I’m working on, and for a few of you here who I would love to make my friends in real life, given we SC’ers ever meet in the ‘day of Hashr’. Other than that, #2 above mentioned people have made SC a dead Texan wasteland with tumbleweeds all over. 

More later.

Times change and shiachat has to change along with or get forgotten.

Except for those of us who just keep coming back. 

Each of the mods and admins has strengths and weaknesses, and a lot goes on behind the scenes that members aren't aware. I think the team that we have right now is outstanding. We balance each other very well.

I agree that each mod has their own strengths and weaknesses, but I also think mods are meant to stay neutral where there is chaos on some threads. Not going to name any, but I have noticed that a couple can get very nasty and personal in a way that I feel is inappropriate for a mod. 

I understand that everyone has good and bad days, but to take it out on other users and get downright nasty on multiple occasions make me believe that some abuse their power.

I wrote a poem once on this site, and a mod removed it although it violated no guidelines, and it was removed because the mod personally didn’t like it. Other mods saw it and thought it was fine, but another mod removed it, and the other mods said sorry and backed that mod up because they obviously would not tear each other down or question another’s decisions.... to me, this particular act seemed like an abuse of power and inserting personal feelings where there should be none. 

I do like most of the mods, though.

Number one rule for a forum is longevity.

Better off with a loyal team than members changing every two months. 

You talk about elections here, I say be grateful to those who dedicate their time. Because they stay on duty while members tend to come and go so quickly. 

Just see how often we see members getting hyperactive for 6 months and then disappearing.

Everyone keeps talking about how mods and admins dedicate all their time. Okay, we appreciate that (for the sincere and good ones) but some mods and admins seem to come on here to seek an adrenaline rush by playing with members like they're yoyos, banning and unbanning them in the span of 5 minutes, policing the chatroom like they own it etc.. not all mods are amazing just because they spend alot of time on here. Yes, there are good mods and admins, but that shouldn't undermine the fact that there are some incredibly disrespectful and biased ones. Any argument with one or defence is also used against you, and another justification for unnecessary bans.

Also, there is a huge lack of consistency with the way members are treated by mods and admins, which highlights the biased nature of many members of the team.

:ws:

I am very sorry to hear that. I for one still remember you although we may not have had much exchange. But then, its usually been like that. A few have always carried their biases and they come and go. I am not so immune either. Before my absence began I was being maneuvered on my way out. I have 8 warning points in total now. A few of the younglings could never sleep easy feeling "in charge" abusing their power. Its not their fault. What would you do if you had a shrine for Goku and I did not care at all about that? Such individuals will always be there and always have been. So don't worry about it. We need to take life easy.

Btw my purpose with this thread was MOSTLY to say HI , and that I am back. So, hi. :D I am not whinging. And I really did not intend to be serious about complaining. I do however preferred the old style of the website.

What an excellent idea!  

This place was irrevocably changed after the mega banning spree over a few months for anyone who irritated specific mods. I was even threatened with being banned - even mild mannered me..

We lost so many members that contributed to interesting ongoing discussions, debates with their varied and extreme viewpoints.  It was interesting and thought provoking and passionate!   When you checked in there was always some topic that grabbed your attention. There definitely were some characters on here, but I totally disagreed with banning 90% of them.

Mostly because some MODs are hellbent on kicking each and everyone of these to the curb. Go back to the banned thread and see how many were banned soon after they came in or were treated like juvenile criminals -:) once they logged in initially.

I should have been careful to be very honest.
