Moderation Inconsistencies Rife on EF

Can I have more insight into EF Mods? How does it work? Who are these people? How do they achieve Mod status? Do they talk to each other? Are they friends with others users? Why are their moderations never consistent?

A few examples:

- The usual suspects groan my posts. Either my opinion doesnít fit theirs, or I am not worthy of posting an opinion. Fine
- I groan other posts I donít like. They bad rep or personally message me to whinge.
- I like to read the opinions of people who groan me. Sometimes I donít like what I read. I groan them. I get warning.
- I read a thread in Daily Life wanting tickets for football game. Its not moved. I donít care
- I post thread in general off topic, regarding same football game, but what the experience of people who have attended said stadium have sampled in going. My thread gets moved, to Sports, not daily life.

Anyone care to explain?

Re: Moderation Inconsistencies Rife on EF

Now that you mention it, you didn't like me saying that I lost my virginity earlier than I thought?

Why?

And no I didn't groan back or bad rep you for it.

you groan cris1973 5 times in the same thread. Something considered as a groan frenzy. Hence the warning.

While you get groaned by other people, it seems it's several people and certainly not on all posts.

The only costant in all the cases is you it seems.

Also, thread belongs in Forum Support. Please keep the place organized.

Could it possibly be, that you engage in tit-for-tat groaning/bad repping? This practice is highly frowned upon on the EF and therefore, you don't necessarily have the sympathies of everybody on the forum. Take it easy...relax, take a load off. Sometimes, you just have to take certain posts/remarks with a pinch of salt.

Re: Moderation Inconsistencies Rife on EF

Moderating is done by volunteer individuals, with individual ways to react and therefore cannot be consistent as such. Must say it's made me laugh a few times when a post is moved several times in a few minutes by different moderators - but so what?

They do a great job and the Forum couldn't really exist without them- and for that I am very grateful, Merci.

To be fair, And as I have mentioned Ad Nauseum.
while nobody would expect pinpoint consistency close to a nanometer, it is somewhat obvious that it their consistency is far too spread apart at points.

Re: Moderation Inconsistencies Rife on EF

you do appear to be a bit of a dick, groaning posts for no reason and on threads you have not participated in, drive by groaners are one thing that really pisses me off.

Are you aware of the existence and meaning of the word hypocrisy?

I didnt like his posts. Were boring. I thought anyone can exercise a groan at their preference? surely its ones choice what they like and dislike?

Is it forum support? I dont want or need support.

Just a general off topic query where I am interested in peoples opinions.

Why thank you, you seem quite a treat too

Interestingly, I groaned those who did exactly what you discuss.

Hence my thread.

All the best, and dont get too stressed, its not good for the blood pressure

If you put it in forum support then you could have groaned more people

Yes, thank you for asking. (Despite being the champ ) I'm a little hypocritical as well at times...and just like you, when I first joined the forum, I was an obnoxious, $hithead poster....well, thanks to some mod-facilitated vacations, little has changed over time..but I've learned to share and distribute my pile of nonsense amidst usefullness..like that, I can maintain a healthy, harmonious balance. See, you're barging in and expect everybody to group hug ya and smother you with love...whilst, this forum is a pool of information and, you need to learn how to simmer down.

Your groaning and complaining history would seem to disagree.

And no, as I have stated before, there is Etiquette.drive-by groans and groan frenzies on a single thread do not constitute proper one.

If you disagree, multiquote and argue. The purpose of the groan is for disagreeing on a few comments, not the whole thread worth.
