What kind of site moderation do we want?
I know that we've had this discussion before. I can't recall what we all preferred, but we have ended up with a mod who sees it as OK to taunt, hound and attempt to out-bully another member. Not only is that likely to bring the site into disrepute but it is borderline criminal in Kestas jurisdiction and could lead to site sanctions. Is this what we want?

Mod mode could be easily implemented by making a mod account for posting that no one can mute while every other account could be muted. It would also add a separation between participant and their role as mod. We'd stop seeing JMO as a admin and abge as the ombudsman and would, instead, see them as fellow members of the community that put on a mod hat when they log in as the mod account.

They could then give their opinion and not have it confused as some official mod/admin/ombudsman opinion when it was just their own (something the US needs to do when it comes to Jefferson's papers).

Haha. I know Draug, and I appreciate it. Honestly, I wouldn't even be here still if it weren't for all the colorful characters I get to meet and interact with. With that being said, you guys suck to mod.
Draugnar (0 D X)

Here is a stop gap proposal that could be implemented today without changing code. All mods and admins have their accounts stripped of the privileges. Two new accounts (WebDipMod and WebDipAdmin) get created with the appropriate rights and the appropriate people are given the passwords. If Abge wants it, a third account, WebDipOmbudsman, could be created with his unique set of rights and only he would have the password.

We already have the tools. If anyone every stepped down or got rights stripped, you change the password and let the remaining mods or admins know it without telling the one who is stepping down.

This works Draugnar, up to the point where you are silenced and ask who did it, and the obvious answer is jmo as this happened to me before. I now having been docked points for some sort of trumped up cheating with you (remember!?) and when I asked who it was it was jmo. I could have bet money on it being jmo, noone else would take such satisfaction from docking my points. And that's why I ask in each mod case that jmo does not deal with it and I recommend all new players to stay away from him.

I don't dislike jmo but he should not be a moderator.

Uhhhhh.....maybe you should just stop being such an asshole/potential suspected cheater that you keep having mod cases. MOST of us go through life without these issues...

Just keep this in context - I have since posting that post received a threat from Jmo that 50% of my points will be docked for something else...I don't consider anything that man says to be accurate reflection of the moderator team or Kestas, I would be more likely to listen to a warning from someone like Draugnar. This is plain ridiculous.
SYnapse (0 D X)
11 Jun 14 UTC
Bearing in mind that I didn't receive a warning or anything *when* jmo closed my thread (he'll come up with some ridiculous story about queueing up messages for the end of the day) but since posting something about his competency as a moderator he found the reason to send me a 50% points dock threat.

SURVEY: How many people *frequently* get "threats" from jmo or any other mod, and occassionally have their points docked?

The problem isn't jmo. The problem is that you, apparently, are a rule-violating *asshole* that should probably just have your ass banned. Would be no great loss.

I find it more of a commentary on your competency as a user that you need to be given a dozen warnings not to post about ongoing games in the forum.

@ SYnapse: " I have since posting that post received a threat from Jmo that 50% of my points will be docked for something else"

Please be more specific. Which other rule have you broken now?
Hellenic Riot (1619 D (G))

I never know whether to be impressed or depressed when people manage to break the rules with such regularity without cheating.

In the forum you stated that you were previously docked points by me in a way unbecoming of a moderator.

Here is the instance you are referring too, please note that your thread this morning broke the exact rules Kestas said would justify harsher action.

This is your 2nd offense in regards to press violations, a 3rd offense will result in a 50% point dock and possible forum sanctions from a forum ombudsman.

So a Live Game has been paused
A live game has been paused due to Russia's impending absence, I was wondering if it doesn't start back up as a live game (as paused live games often never do) could a mod change it to a different time per phase so that the game could continue

The Favorite Author Tournament: The Sweet 16
Into Round 3 we go, with Team Virgil once again eking out a victory to move on...will it happen again? Will Rowling or Woolf be able to keep busting through that glass ceiling and move on as the only two female authors left? Will Asimov continue to keep the hopes of fans alive, as after a glut of sci-fi writers to start, he's the last one standing? Will Thucy drop the "vote 12 times per turn" thing now that Thoreau and Laozi have gone the way of Shakespeare? 16 enter, 8 move on!

What to do with a bent splint (right word?) in my mouth?
I already called the dentist and I'm going there tomorrow morning since earlier is impossible, but meanwhile I was wondering if there's something I can do to make it less damaging. The thing is that it's very much irritating the flesh around the teeth, as well as presumably pulling my teeth out of position. Can anyone think of a fix?
