Since the original feedback forum is shut down to all except "approved" threads, it serves no purpose whatever. I hereby declare Prime Time as the New Feedback Forum.
C'mon, man. Before they put up the screen all threads posted. Since they put up the screen no threads have posted. Whether "they" are getting notified or not is really beyond the point, innit? Someone, somewhere thought censoring feedback - squashing criticism - was a bright idea. They either fucked up the implementation or they still think it's a bright idea. Neither option is all that palatable do you think?Some did before that--so someone, somewhere was getting the notices. That's all I'm saying.
Semantics, huh? I would think bitch-fest posts should be easy to differentiate and eliminate. That is a legitimate moderator function but I wonder how bitch-fest would be defined.First--maybe it's just a matter of semantics to some, but the idea isn't to censor feedback. They welcome legitimate feedback. The idea is to prevent the feedback forum from becoming a cave-like bitch-fest. Like I said, maybe that's semantics, and to some, they are one in the same. But there was a clear propensity toward bashing and complaining. That was seen by some as unproductive.
There is no reason to go there. I never said any such thing. If you are feeling pressure it's understandable but don't turn accusatory to me. I have never questioned your integrity. If I see fit to it will not be something you have to guess at.WhiteStrat said:Second--as far as moderating the threads goes, I'm simply telling you what I know. If you have reason to believe that I'm a shill and/or a liar, then unfortunately, you're going to dismiss what I say anyway.
That looks like Admin is either incompetent or lying. Is there another possibility? Maybe they just don't give a shit? Ulterior motives? Were mods informed that Feedback was going to be screened and that they would be responsible? When was the fix requested?WhiteStrat said:All I can do is say it again: even the admins were surprised to learn that we weren't getting the emails. A prompt fix has been requested.
Admin has every right to accept feedback or not. Freedom of speech does not apply here. However if you are going to allow a Feedback forum you cannot screen the questions - it's all or nothing. If someone posts a bitchy complaint it is a simple task to say, "That's the way it is, tough shit if you don't like it." That is a legitimate admin response that can garner nothing but respect. It's honest.First--maybe it's just a matter of semantics to some, but the idea isn't to censor feedback. They welcome legitimate feedback.
