    to the best of my knowledge most of what's been going on is merging. Right now, we have three posters that enjoy posting news stories...and don't always check to see if it's already been posted.

    We also had a HUGE spate of folks posting the story about the person who said the show made them kill....and we went on a merging spree

      Nope that is what I meant .... And Oh I thought that users could see their own deleted posts but now that you mention it I do remember being told that if we *The Mods on High* deleted it the user couldn't see it...*sigh*... so much power .... in this teeny weeny living space...(yes I meant my brain...so no one says a word *glares at all you smart alecs*)

        When a news item is specific to Season Ten / Season Three, there are also often duplicates created in those folders. If we deem the topic more season-focused or episode-focused than "newsy," the merging will be done into the season folder.

            posting the info mal looked up

            remember folks, the questions are for the MODS to answer here...if you want to help out, pm the person, don't post it here


            Q: What are the tier levels?

            Level 1 (0-800): Standard set of avs. Not a lot of variety, but enough to cover the basics.
            Level 2 (801-1800): Advanced standard. All the avs you think are "missing" are probably here. An expansion of previous categories as well as some new ones.
            Level 3 (1801+): Complete. There are a couple more somewhat random categories here, but the important thing is that it's when you can start using your own av.

              Many Thanks

                    So, Mods, can you please tell me exactly what the purpose of this thread is? And give some examples of things that are NOT appropriate to ask/post here?

                      Well so glad you asked

                      The purpose of this thread is to ask questions that could be relative to simple guidance...such as how do I do this or that and we can lead you in the right direction.

                      Members can ask us about policies, procedures or any number of other Forum related netiquette and we can either answer or lead them in the right direction.

                      Merges, Thread edits, thread moves can be placed here BUT we will always re-interate that the *Report Post* function will get you faster results. But you can still ask.

                      Anything related to the Forum is open for questions and we will answer it in some way, shape or form.

                      That however, does not mean will have the amswer at that exact moment, or that we will give you the answer you think we should.

                      Sometimes we will even tell you that your question is not appropriate for this thread and proceed to help you privately.

                      Basicaly, its for anything you as a member would like to ask the Mods regarding the Forum. Personal issues should be sent in the form of a PM and will normally be deleted from the thread

                      Hopefully that cleared that up for ya'all

                        correct?
                        Am I correct that in addition to not discussing other users on moderation, you shouldn't post here demanding to know why YOU are on moderation and that questions/arguments/discussions of that type should be saved for PM's with individual mods?

                        Comment


                          for rep points, we can remove 'bad' comments, bad = against the rules/insulting, however we cannot alter the point itself.

                          I'm not sure that i understand the last half of your question though

                            well, we,as mods, do our best to keep moderation issues private. Yet, we can't do much if the moderatee's make their status public.

                            if an individual is put on mod, s/he is very rarely placed there by one person's decision, the mods normally discuss it. There are some exceptions, spammers, porn posters or if someone goes sooooo OTT that they need to be silenced and they need to be silenced now.

                              If I understand your question correctly ALL of what you have asked would fall under the *Personal Issues* and should and would be handled privately.

                              A Member may post the question here but normally we will end up deleting it and going into a private conversation with said member regarding their issue.

                              We would prefer it begn that way as well Privately

                                if the person is already ON Moderation .... no one BUT the Mods would see the post anyway and unless we are having a strange day...we won't approve that post to be posted here in the first place.

                                and if said person on modration has their friends post here asking we will just delete the posts or just answer with the comment *That is between the Mods and the member*
