Too many chiefs .....

Im starting to think that this forum is way over adminstered .. there are so many Mods and "editors " on this forum.. and most of the time one mod does not know what the other is doing..for example the thread i posted last night had 28 modifications to it by moderators ..it was openned and closed on three separate occasions¨.. it was moved ..etc etc

Dating girls 15 to 20 years younger than you

I think we need to reduce the number of moderators or at least getting them working from the same sheet..

Given the hours they work , and the amount of work they are seen to be doing, there probably aren't enough. Learn form what you experienced and post with care, it will cut down on their work, and yours.

Dude, has it occured to you that it might not the quantity of the mods but the quality of your posts? Just saying...

Re: Too many chiefs .....

ABosolutely... We may not agree with them sometimes, but if this forum wasn`t moderated, it would really become useless...

Threads like the one you referenced, just being more rediculous responses than serious ones... I was surprised that it was given new life... So be thankful for that... But in the end, the result will be the same...

Re: Too many chiefs .....

Mods do not always act alone but respond to feedback from members as well. This may be in posts, PMs or reported posts.

This may influence changing decisions.

Re: Too many chiefs .....

And don't be surprised if this thread is "modified". I don't think it belongs in "Daily LIfe"...

Maybe that thread was not the best example, but people do date girls 20 years younger than themselves ..it is a real life issue, and it occurs quite regulary here in lucrative Switzerland..

Instead of mods acting autonomously ..the should at least work from the same sheet. I just cant understand the reasonning behind why some of my post have been deletd ..i think the mods should at least be liberal in their approach ..if it is not harming anyone LEAVE IT.

Re: Too many chiefs .....

I see our OP has a lot of Red Dots by their name, not one or two but four in fact! Whereas everyone else is displaying lovely green springtime-esque ones.

Could somebody please enlighten me?

And yes I have tried the search function!

Re: Too many chiefs .....

I'm going to have to side with the mods on this, sorry OP.

I don't think the chiefs are the problem but rather too many cowboys?


Informal . a reckless or irresponsible person, especially a show-off or one who undertakes a dangerous or sensitive task heedlessly: They put foreign policy in the hands of cowboys.

Re: Too many chiefs .....

Hi there. Hey, Number 7, thanks for letting the mods know how the forum should be run. We're always delighted to receive gratuitous, sorry, I mean gratis, advice.

As predicted, I'm now "modifying" this thread and moving it where it belongs.

As a general reminder, please note that trash gets deleted off EF. Persistent trash earns a ban.

Thanks for reading.

Anatomy of a post: all those buttons and links, explained ... although I suspect you may already know ...

Good point, though.

Re: Too many chiefs .....

When that thread was closed last night for the first time by economisto and whose comments I fully agreed with, it should have been left at that IMHO.

Certainly as far as deletions and modifications go, I think it was only right to remove the pictures you posted of the young lady and yourself (whether these were really photos of the two of you or not). Can't remember what else was there on the thread at that time that's now been deleted or changed so can't argue for or against these.

Well im quite sure the Owner would like to know how this forum is being moderated, the forum seems to be run by small people in uniforms with a holier than thou attitude.. some of the mods on here really should get a life ...or is EF their life...

Re: Too many chiefs .....

It may not be the case here, but often when a thread is locked and unlocked it's because moderators are trying to work from the same sheet.

It allows them time to discuss the thread and to tidy it up without having it grow and increase their work.
