And why did you post this here?
Do you feel that the Moderators are not handling these subjects totally correctly in all forums????
As you are NOT a Moderator you do not get to see the posts that are prevented from ever seeing the light of day.
I know the reason you posted here,cause this is the reason for the feedback forum.
CNET is the best help forum,in fact i rate it a 10+,but the managerial aspect is another story.
I had a sitution the other day in which i received nothing less then abuse just cause i asked a question.I figured cnet would lock or delete it since it was it was going off the deep end.
John (mod) had an issue in which he tried to help someone and he tried to decipher a poorly written post,and in return the individual turned on him like a wild dog.
Other forums will move a post that is in the wrong forum,and also if someone talks trash,they are informed of this immediately.Point being,if you pull punches,people will walk all over you.
As far as i'm concered,if someone wants to talk trash,you do it in person like a man,not like a punk kid.
But so few forum users are even aware
that this forum exists, or ever reads it.
If there is a problem, the forums TOS addresses that.
The best approach in my opinion would be for the Moderator of each forum periodically post a statement such as Pudgy one posted here.
A major location for such has been the Speakeasy forum. A few months ago the policy was restated and the Mods periodically bring it up to the top.
What action did you take for your case??? Did you send a mod alert?? If yes, was appropriate action taken???
I did not send mod alert cause i figured its easy to see.
Your suggestion that the Moderator of each forum periodically post a statement such as Pudgy one posted here is an excellent idea,but will be useless if not enforced,hollow threats mean nothing.
One question if i may,what is TOS
Your feedback is much appreciated,
P.S.I noticed that sometimes there is confuession as to which forum to post in,like i said CNET is the best forum for help,but why don't other forums have this problem,it's not splitting the atom.
Click on the Forum Policies on the left
under Forum Information. They are the rules that are generally referred to as TOS [Terms Of Service] [terrible name IMHO]. Think that it is a carry over from ZDNET.
All the fire breathers in the Speakeasy forum know what it is. LOL:
I offer no solution on why they don't choose the correct forum. I haven't checked the numbers but seems that the Newbies may be a leadre. Lots of great help in there, with Grif a great Moderator.
SE is probably the busiest, but totally different animal.
I believe that those are actually two separate things. The TOS (Terms of Service) refers to the Terms of Usage, which are quite a bit more detailed, written by the legal department, and cover Cnet as a whole. (Remember, when you sign up in the forums you're also signing up at download.com, Cnet.com, etc. MP3.com, TV.com, and TechRepublic are separate, though.) The forum policies, on the other hand, are shorter, easier to read, and apply specifically to these forums.
At least that's the way I've seen it.
P.S. I stay out of the dragon's pit.
(NT) Chicken ;)
Ah, and don't forget ZDNet which started these forums
that CNet purchased, and still a part of CNet.
(NT) Jonn, There you go again?
?isolating your name on my blue control bar screen here on the Forums. I asked you to fess-up to this before. Nothing back from you yet and the post from Rick (thepudgyOne) Took a screen-shot and will forward to Rick. Are you someone special on my screen shots?
Wonder why this happens? Just too funny:
I left off the names of a number
of relatively newer Mods, Tufenuf, Flax, Williamson et al. Breathing some new life into the forums. They give complete replies rather than cryptic or a link to google.
In addition to what Ray posted concerning TOS,
Thanx John. I knew that it was
somewhere else. Never had read any of them. Simply enjoyed all the wild re interpretations used by the trolls during their battles in Speakeasy. LOL
Isn't this a free country!!! ROFLMAO
