I don't even get the "50% of people's reviews" part. Like, on TimeScales? How on Earth would a moderator here delete reviews on there? And if, by any chance, Kamelion means messages (not reviews, wtf?) on this forum... where the hell did they get that number? If that was anywhere close to reality, I'd be *very* lucky to have never had a post removed.
I think he means messages here, though I couldn’t see any when I looked at the thread. It might prove useful if he provided specific examples, with links.
I can only echo what my fellow forum members have said in that I’ve never had any issues with moderators nor any cause for concern.
Even when there has been the odd heated discussion or disagreement, it’s always been very civil.
I'd agree with that too. Unlike some, I've no idea what history Kamelion has, but this rather condescending talk of 'censorship' and telling the Mods how to run this site (which is lauded for its usually friendly community spirit) isn't the best way to make a good impression.
If you cannot provide clear evidence of your accusations then any credibility you may have hoped to have found here will be lost. It is unfortunate considering the strong brand of Outpost Gallifrey you are representing. Though it seems clear now that any positive connection to that brand belongs to the man from who you've stolen it These attacks feel more like a misguided ad-campaign than anything else at this point. I have not experienced any censorship within this forum. Considering you were crying wolf for someone moving your post to the correct section I doubt your definition of censorship will fit mine anyway.
I dread to think how you will manage a forum considering the behavior you have showcased here.
I'm more of an lurker than active poster here these days, but even so my thoughts echo many of those said above-I've never personally experienced any major problems on this forum, everyone is by and large friendly and easy going, what few arguments or disagreements are had usually resolve themselves amicably without the need for moderation. In my own (admittedly perhaps more limited than many other members here) experience the forum mods here are hard working and fair in their decisions, censorship or post deletions are very rare and only done for good reasons.
I can't say I know much about the timescales site, or the OP who started this thread but I'm not so sure starting a public thread was the best way to go about sorting this out, in my own experiences across various forums, things like this are best sorted out with Private message discussions between the relevant people involved, rather than venting or complaining at other forum members who don't have the full facts.
The thing is, that 'Outpost Gallifrey' was a reviews forum, as far as I can remember it, in addition to being a news site. The current *cough* 'revival', whilst using the 'defunct' domain name, is so far merely a single, solitary web page, without even a functioning navigation menu or banner. No links to sub pages or even shortcuts. All content is cut and pasted to the 'home page' and can only be accessed by scrolling up or down. I am not convinced of its community of 'volunteer reporters' and its 'multiple volunteer staff members'.
What is quite amusing, and please feel free to comment kamelion...err Zen Puppy, whoever you want to call yourself, is that your rant on the timescales.com, you seem to be replying to yourself under a different guise.
Edit: last part removed by me, would help if I'd logged in.
The mod team feels enough has been said on this matter and we're now locking the thread. We will continue to discuss what has been said.
We would like to remind everyone that we want to keep things civil and on-topic across the boards, so anything that was said in this thread stays in this thread. Please do not start further threads on this topic.
