Yes, have it set up so that it is the ONLY thread that people who are currently banned can post upon; also relax the moderation on it.

Heck, they're already banned, damned and dead.



While we regulars might find it amusing, I doubt that it would do much to impress / entice the Wiz's potential clients / sponsors.

It'll never happen.



I think the Wizard should consider some sort of appeals avenue at least. If banned, you have no recourse except what is basically activist jury nullification. This leads to "NotDraculas". I like that painting. Who is the artist?

Now that I think of it, how about letting the membership rate our moderators? Let us anonymously answer a poll on how we feel without fear of repercussions.



Why? You can directly tell me that you think I absolutely suck without fear of repercussions.

Mission you SUCK!!! Man I feel so much better. :) This stuff reminds me of all the guys that get arrested and go to
jail complaining about how they were innocent and got @$%d.

I personally have never been arrested for something I didn't do. :)

You suck ... NOT!




I'm kinda glad I'm no longer a moderator here...

Yep the mods do suck at times, have been browsing the suspension list, are the rules equally applied to all, or does it depend on the target?

Take this fella Beethoven, gets a temp 30 day rollover for trolling, then there is this other fella DMSCR

He receives three bans for this;
7 days
14 days
31 days

Then you look at his 183 posts,
over 70% carry the same theme and are in fact related, what are the odds in that? Anyway what was the deal, you mods not paying attention, asleep on your watch, good to think you missed the bus on that one, but never mind, there is another due.

Appears to be a bad case of constant trolling, the member seems to have a wendel fixatation, other than some mumbo jumbo about having the ability to see patterns inside patterns, plus the odd extravagant claim while enquiring how little can he bet. I notice some members have been nuked for far less.

How about adding an extra column to the "hall of shame" list that shows who issued the suspension? Think of the fun that could be had if bets were placed on your favorite moderator. Who will win the "contest" at the end of the year? Bets could be made on the most suspensions, most days or even on which day of the week gets the most suspensions. You could even vote on who would give out the least suspensions. The possibilities are endless. Step right up and vote for your favorite moderator.

Now that I think of it, how about letting the membership rate our moderators? Let us anonymously answer a poll on how we feel without fear of repercussions.



My question is why would you or anyone want to rate the mods? They all follow The Wizards standards and if they don't follow it, he addresses it. And if you don't like how they handle issues why not state it? No reason to put it out there without your name. If you are joking about this, sorry for busting on you. But if not, follow the rules Clearly posted or risk the wrath.

A clear evaluation shows most suspensions are valid and are either "new" posters or good long term posters who let emotion get the best of them. Either way it is always valid. JMO
