I think we need someone moderate these forums better, not saying you guys aren't doing a good job, but I've been seeing alot of nonsense posted, a whole lot of spam, just wondering if you need someone that has nothing better to do moderate the forums. But I guess it just be me since other forums I'm joined up to are alot more strict on these issues.

I think the're trying to give us almost unbridled speech
unless it is something completely taboo i.e.: pornographic links, etc.
in some ways I do think the mods allow too much to continue but in other ways... it's kinda nice not having to feel like you have a baby-sitter on another computer Mr. Green

uh......you have less than thirty people on your forum. Winbolo has lots and it just wouldn't be fun w/o the "free speech". I also live on another forum, with strict rules and guidelines keeping ppl from posting anything REMOTELY off topic, and it's not half as fun as WinBolo.net, because there is less sense of "community" due to the fact that if some mod doesn't want something said, they will just delete it.

Good points, MM. I for one appreciate entertainment. Here, I can count on several moronic topics and dozens of laff-your-ass-off idiotic posts per week. Very Happy

We the moderators have our hands tied becuase of a strict policy of not doing anything about the nonsense .... Everytime we try to update the forum policy some "induhviduals" (you know who you are) snivel and whine and bitch and whine some more until elvis decides to do nothing instead of updating the policy. Quite a number of times policies that would keep this place clean, fully transparent, and improve the enviroment of this forum have been suggested and then shot down with some bullshit remarks about free speech. Sorry to say, this isn't a free speech zone, we're not infringing your ability to speech freely by having a policy that allows moderators to take action if excessive behavior is seen. This is a internet chat forum, we can't infringe on your right to speech your opinion freely. We however can restrict what you say on this forum, if you don't like it, feel free to lobby your congressman about it. But this whole arguement is pointless, since elvis will probably not get around to updating the policy, just like he never got around to creating a proper policy for the irc.winbolo.com #winbolo chat room, even though we requested that he did.

Yay! Winbolo.net is screwed! At least it isn't populated like xfn is, if we had that many people here it would be a living hell, well I guess my idea got shot down, all well...

From the 8 pages of resulting post I don't know if the community came to an agreement on it.

Well our community has alot of people who think there should be no mods or any rules and that they should be able to post and do anything that they want to, but we need guidelines to follow and I think we need somebody to enforce them, hence an update and mods that have no life and can be around all day long(me,lol pathetic I know) to enforce these rules. One thing I noticed that theres a voting thing to have a post locked and whatever, I don't agree with that, any mod should have the right to close a topic, if they did close something that was following the rules and nothing wrong with it and then they should be warned, if they did it again on purpose then they should be de-modded.
