    Default This section now moderated

    Hi everyone,

    FYI the political section is now being moderated. Krista and I are the new moderators for this section only. Please remember that all Forum rules apply when you post. Thanks!

    Will there be a change in the topic line, ie. Politics - unmoderated? Or will we still call it unmoderated?

    Thanks.

    I don't know. Krista and I can't change the forum thread, only the administrators can. You guys can ask them in Forum Feedback.

    I've updated the sticky thread, please be sure to read it. In the thread, I posted why I was a bit hesitant to change the section title. I was also trying to get my thoughts in order, but other forum/online stuff kept popping up for me, so I didn't get the chance. I'm so sorry that I wasn't able to officially introduce Krista & Alexa as mods.

    So, here's my welcome: Welcome!!

    Heather, thanks for changing the name and posting about the section. I think we all know you've been busy with the various matters regarding the move over here to this new and improved venue, and patience is not a stranger to MK Fans.

    I don't understand your reasoning in choosing to add moderators, and I have no idea how they were chosen, but I won't demand more answers, I would much rather just tell you I still think of you as Webmistress Extraordinaire.

    But may I ask one question? You don't even hafta answer it, but please think about it, okay? In that you have told us the section can be shut down forever if folks send a bunch of complaints to the full-board mods, then what's to stop some bunch of meanies and/or trolls from flooding those mods with complaints, just to see it get shut down, ending all discussion of the important issues of the day?

    I think it's mostly because we could do it much easier here than on ezboard. This section was always basically "watched", as mentioned in the original FAQ for this section, and several of the mods would do so. I never did (lol, it's amazing I actually came back into this section today to see your post. ) But the mods who were watching still didn't really want to have to continue to worry about this section, and when we brought up the idea that we could add mods just for this section, it was agreed that it would be a big help to the rest of us.

    I don't mind explaining how the mods for this section were chosen. The mods who had kept an eye on this section recommended one poster who they felt was rational and clear headed in their posts in this section, and who they thought would do a good job as a Political Moderator. I asked if they could suggest someone who's on the other side of the issues as well, so that no one would think that we were biased one way or the other, and they came up with another poster pretty quickly that fit the bill. And there you go.

    Before we started this section, the mods were CONSTANTLY receiving PMs/emails from people who post on the forum all the time about political issues. They were regular MKF posters, not trolls. If we suddenly started getting PMs from people who we knew were just trying to cause problems, we would not shut down this section. Frankly, if anyone emailed/PMed me about something here, I would just delete it without even reading it, since the rules are pretty clear. The rule about shutting down at any time has been in the FAQ for this section since day one, so nothing has changed. Also, bothering the other mods with issues here is just one of the reasons this section could potentially be shut down, not the only reason.

    I am very happy with you guys, that this section hasn't caused any problems once it opened, so I don't forecast the section being shut down. I just have to list it as a possibility, so that if the worse case scenario does happen, and it is shut down, no one say they weren't warned.

    ...it gets a bit aggravating when threads are closed sometimes...i know

    you guys have to keep order...but ..


    .....i proposed it before.....


    ........wish we could have one, basically "no-holds" barred thread about

    politics in general that would allow aggressive comments and disagreements..


    ...i feel it would eliminate the need to close any other thread, because

    it would be the thread to go to for some real discussion without worrying

    about someone getting their feelings hurt...
