I Got An Announcement! (karma: 22)

Now, stay with me on this one. Because, for some of you, this is going to be a stretch.

THE MODS AREN'T STUPID!

Our policies are really quite simple:

Your first ban for netspeak, you get a 48 hour warning.

Your second ban, it's a 96 hour warning.

Your third ban, your gone. Done. Finished. Finito.

I'm not certain why everyone feels like we must prove the bans (especially when we were in chat, and you weren't), or why everyone has decided that we just ban people just because we feel like it.

We have chat logs, for every single member, that we can access at any time we wish. We can prove that the member used netspeak, and we can even tell you what TIME it was when they used it.

But, why do we have to?

I think we've proven ourselves to be more then competent when it comes to running this website.

But, all the sudden, when it comes to bans, we have to fight with everybody and their brother about it. And, it's always the same members that disagree with every single ban.

They're all deserved. We're not idiots.

Theresa

Hi

That sounds more than fair enough to me, I don't envy you your job. Well done to all the moderators, I for one certainly don't think you are stupid, I appreciate the job that you all do here on dance.net.

Take Care and Thank You

I believe in and trust all the mods. They have always been fair to me, especially when I was a *cough* newbie.

That's just it, though, Tutufun...you were a newbie and not a n00b.

Good Grover, we wouldn't have a website if we did that! hee hee. No, honestly most people are very supportive...but it's difficult when people accuse you of picking on just them or their friends.

Pfft Uh Hello Theresa? Obviously you are cause like, like, Its an announcement? And like, obviously like, we have like this board called an announcements board like. And yeah like, so like, you suck like.

Nah just kidding, I'm in a stoopid mood (please don't hate me :( )

Well said though. The mods are always being challenged by someone. The mods would NEVER ban someone if there wasn't good reasoning for it. They're being fair. What good is it to have rules and only some people abide by them?

w00t! Go mods! *sends love vibes*

I thought it was something really exciting....

But no, it's the same old thing that's been said over and over and over....

I can't help but notice that it's the same people who respond AND who take notice of what the mods are doing AND who have positive things to say AND who are not the culprits!

Make this a sticky and PLASTER it EVERYWHERE....because no offence to those who do take notice - there's some pretty stupid people out there in ddn land!

There's six of them in my office. We have battles with them.

I think they'd be great for hitting n00bs with.

Hi

Becareful PokeyStar you are verging on netspeak, "send em over here" just an observation ;)

We can't have one rule for one set of people and another set of rules for everyone else, netspeak is netspeak.

Right on, Theresa. Well said, point taken. You and the other mods I've had contact with have been nothing but professional and friendly, and your standards for this site aren't that demanding, so when someone needs to be scolded a bit by a brief ban (whoa, alliteration at 5:30am), the action is deserved and fair.

Y'all kick butt, in other words! :)

Uh oh. Now I have to be a good girl ALL the time, not just when a mod is there!

in my opinion, "em" is a regional slang. so you're right, can't have one set of rules for one group, and not for the other, therefore the use of "em" is fine.

I dont consider "em" as netslang. Howevr tlkin lyk dis iz.

Anyway, Theresa, you rock my socks off. Have I told you that? You really do. And I don't understand why people give the Mods flak, Cause they are all awesome. (But don't let it go to your heads ;)).

MIClogger, thank you for stating the rules so clearly. You and all the rest of the mods are doing a great job.

This site just has got to be well protected. I think we need to remember we do have a lot of young participants. How can they tell what good behavior is, unless the action of others demonstrates it really clearly. We can all still have fun, though. I am glad we do.

Mods -- carry on! Thank you! You share a big responsibility, I think.

If substituting 'you' for 'U' is netslang then surely so is substituting 'them' for 'em'.
I'm not having a go at pokeystar here I just thought I should defend Tracy as I think she's right and she was only pointing it out in fun, hence the wink ;)

I believe "U" is considered netspeak while "em" isn't because the last time I checked you don't use "U" while speaking but (at least over here in Massachusetts) "em" is used rather frequently.

if people can use "fabby" for fabulous, then why can't we use "em" for them?

either way, it doesn't matter. it was petty to call pokeystar out on this in public when there is a thread a few lines up on calling people out. if you felt there was a problem with it, but were not sure if it was netspeak you should have mod reported it and let them decide.
