Andy's attitude

Post by Guild » Sun Dec 09, 2012 10:59 am

i was discussing signatures with andy and i dont like andy he knows this , but i didnt choose to swaer at him like he did to me , and he is a moderator.

just wasnt sure that was how a moderator of forums should act to forum users, and if he should still be a mod on the forums.

i presume this is where this should go :S

im happy to pm the message he sent to me, but wont post it as it contains swearing

No, he has completely ignored protocol and the fact that he broke moderator respect rules and is still not watching what he is saying even though one warning and he gets permabanned again

Wonder why my post count is so low? Thats because I was deleted. Why you may ask?
Well, thats because I exposed the truth about Zeratul and Admin Jason had to cover it up.

But thats something you should have done as a mod, seeing as its one of the mods duties to report them. So, that being said, you are potentially causing confusion amoungst users, not knowing if they are being warned by a mod or by a user. Consitancy? I remember you sending many PMs to users asking them to change them as they were breaking the rules, as a mod. So why is Guild different?

PMs sent by a mod about signatures or other rule violations, are always PMs as a mod.
If in the course of such a conversation the moderator behaves incorrectly, it is correct to call them to order; by giving feedback and/or contacting their GM. The Ombudsman is here to appeal warnings and plea for pardons to. Not to moderate internal affairs (pun intended). ;)

I only asked as a mod once or twice, in both occasions they said no so I then asked as a mod. Guild changed his

Good points Jo. Thats how I always understood the rules. Though, I still don't see why going to the Ombudsman first is a bad thing.

It's never a bad thing. It can just be hard for them to accomplish whatever the user is asking because a lot of the staff disagrees with their involvement in certain situations. That's the wall we always ran up against, anyway...which is why we kept to protocol a lot of the time.

As to whom Andy reports to, in NewGrounds that would be Juliette, though she is not exactly a GM. He has no direct GM in any of the other sections which he Moderators. Kind of a funny situation Jason left us in with our GMs not being organized prior to the dismissal of the Admins.

I'd say if you did something about this and nothing was done then you could come to the Ombudsman, but I don't think coming here first is what should be done. Whoever his GM is should be told and then I'm sure they will handle it (though if not, like I said, then you can come here).

So, I'll move this.

Forum Guidelines wrote:Section 9: Moderator Respect
Users are required to be respectful while addressing moderators who are acting in an official capacity. Moderators are likewise expected to be respectful to users while operating in an official capacity. Moderators will get no special treatment while posting as a user. If one party ceases to be respectful, that does NOT give the other party the liberty to respond with disrespect.

This extends to private messages and reports. If you message a staff member with demands or insults, or if you file a report with demands or insults, it will not be acceptable and may be ignored.

Consequence:
Users who are disrespectful to moderators or staff members will receive a verbal warning. Repeat offenders will receive one warning point. Issues about Moderators being disrespectful will be handled internally.

Signatures.
Signatures may not exceed 450 pixels in height. That means you have a total of 450 pixels worth of space to form your signature. This does not include the space within a spoiler, however it does include the space taken up by the closed spoiler itself. Signatures will be measured from the top of the first item to the bottom the last, and on the forum skin the Moderator has applied; however in the case of a dispute the default forum skin will be used to measure.

Consequence:
The "Sig of Shame" will be put on any account violating this rule. The Moderators are under no obligation to give a warning prior to enforcing this rule, but may do so.

viewtopic.php?f=71&t=101808



To the 2nd, no, I will contact you as I have. If you refuse to change it your signature permissions will be removed. You don't get to pick your mod.
