So I am just wondering if Ubi and Maddox take any responsability for the community they have created. I have witnessed several malicious posts on the Squadrons Forums and seen no moderation at all to stop such activities.

Why?

Whats the point of having a new forum system that allows community members to report abuse and slanderous posts if NOTHING is done about them?

I've seen online communities slip and tumble into this quagmire before.

If somone reports a abusive post one would expect a responce to the report or some kind of action.

Where are the moderators? It's a fair Question...

First off: Me? Not a Mod.
Ok, now that that is out of the way . . .

The mods are all unpaid volunteers, and have to go to work. Tully, or Steve V. always make a show and do "housecleaning". If there have been malicious posts, they will take care of it. It just may take them a bit to get to it, since they have to work their real jobs to support their families.

umm I just checked the moderation que and there were only 2 active requests for threads to be looked at....sure you hit the right button or it worked properly? If so then the matter was probably handled already. If not then report again. It's the first thing we all check when we come online..... I rarely have to read them now since many are reported by people who are tired of the same old people causing issues.

Guys i know they are volanteers and all, I understand that. The alerts in question are now a week or more old but ive checked the string and nothings changed. And i guarantee if the squad getting slammed for no good reason makes another responce or posts again they will get more malign responces.

Maybe we could use more moderators? Is there a moderator for the Squadrons forum?

Im not *****ing I would just like to see this sort of thing curtailed before it poisons the community further.

All moderators cover all forums for the most part. Honestly some do not get looked at as much because the post count is so low.... Squadrons forum has the lowest post count of all I believe. Read my post prior to this also.

There has to be someone here modding, I guess you Hunter82? As far as I can tell that thread about the "secret" getting blown was deleted?

Anyway, SOMEbody is here moderating.

I didn't realize you were modding again Hunter until I saw your avatar label. Silly me I'd thought you'd quit a while back.

I think the problem also is not many people know how the personal messages system works and dont pm the mods on threads that need locking.

Thunak and hunter should definatly hand pick out some new mods

Bearcat and steveV stand out to me as mod matieral amongst a few others.

I'm kind of part time. Been very busy lately business wise and will only get busier in the near future.

Thunak is on the search now for some new mods that can dedicate more time also. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Just buyer beware here's some friendly advice doesn't matter how nice you are or how much eveyone thinks you are a nice guy....as soon as you become a mod you're the enemy to a large portion of people here...sad but true. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

BTW I've started hosting my server again on HL.Anyone who wants to send maps my way just PM me.

I want to get back to having fun with this not an occupation so to speak http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Tully's here, Rock is here, Tailspin is here when he can, Thunak is here. Snoopy is MIA and I have not heard from him. If anyone has tell him to call home so we all know he's fine...then he can disappear again if he so chooses.

Once again a certain idiot is harrasing a perfectly good squad.

Ive posted an alert on this fewl please eliminate him and his posts. This sort of BS should not be tolerated.

Squadrons forum same idiot, so maybe he's not banned or he's made a new account...Please Moderators do somthing about this. It may not effect many, it may only hurt 1 squad, but thats 1 too many.

S!

Voraptor, to send private messages:

Click on the name of the person you wish to contact next to one of their posts and select "Add to My Contacts", follow the prompts to complete this process.

Click on the "My Space" button at the top of the forum and select "Private Topics".

Click on the "Start a new topic" button at the bottom of the "Private Topics" page.

Select the intended recipient(s) from the list on the left and add them to the list of invitees on the right.

Once you have all the people you want in the list, click the "Invite participants" button at the bottom and follow the prompts from there.

The only tricky bit is that you can only invite people that are already listed in "My Contacts".

Once someone is in your contact list, you can also use the link from their public profile to start a private topic if you only want to invite that one person. Once a private topic is started you can't add additional people, you'll have to start over if you missed someone.
