Hell, even I would stop bitching on PEEL and use the alert button if it had an all mods function. There is always #fc, but not all of our mods even go in there. Also, I like TNUK's idea of having more active moderation, with warnings and stuff. I know you guys have been doing this for a few years and are burnt out on it or too busy or whatnot, but we could always appoint new mods if you don't have time...

I'm pretty sure this is a top of the page.

If somebody is really desperate to get swift action it is always possible to press the alert button then add the email address of another mod or mods to send it to.

People complaining here might want to consider that if a warning function were added they might get warned themselves. The people who want stricter moderating are usually the first to complain when they are dealt with in a strict manner.

The problem with that is knowing which mods are online.  I usually know when to find you, slimmy and to a lesser extent mArc in #fc, but there's a period covering several late night hours where you and mArc are both offline, and slimmy's usually doing something else.  And I can't recall the last time I saw any of the other mods in #fc, if ever.  So unless they make a post on PEEL that grabs my attention I don't know if they're online or not.

Nix used to go into #fc, but he hasn't in forever, I don't recall VF ever being in there... and I rarely even seem to see Kryten post anymore. Drippy isn't alive anymore, and Jon is a lazy bastard (no offence  tongue).  So it's at least a valid argument.  I still like slate's idea, if the mods were willing to actually look at a new email account on occasion, all we'd have to do is change the address of the alert button from marc's email address to a new joint email address. 

It's also good to note that if this were enacted, we might actually have less people whining in threads about people they hate, although it's doubtful  frown

Another benefit of that is that you could see the number of complains about users build up in one account, as opposed to only mArc seeing complaint emails, if people actually bother to send them.

Would there be a set number of complaints(or users that make complaints) that would have to come in order for the mods to take action if this new email comes into effect?

I read all the complaints but only react on those I find reaction-worthy. One thing I might have forgotten - and I don't remember if it was you Lamp - don't go around calling people idiots, dumbasses or the likes while meaning it.

If there's something that truly needs direct action, just add the other moderators on your own. I'm pretty much opposed to sending all complaints to a host of moderators, since in my experience that reduces the reaction speed ("someone else will do it"). In addition to that, we'd be forced to use some lame web mailbox no one ever checks in order to share the mail, since I doubt every mod is using IMAP ready mail clients.

Wouldn't it be a good idea in that case to create a joint email account for the moderators and administrators, whereby the alert button sends the message straight to that address. Then when a mod/admin logs in, the first thing they should do is check that joint account to see if there's anything that needs action.

If there's something to action, the first one to see it ought to do it.

 hmpf I guess that won't realy work...
Everyone has a lazy part, and won't check this account. Though these complaints will remain for the next mod to check it. I think this is what [-mArc-] meant with :

How ever... another question (I already asked some time ago):

Is it possible to sort the search results in the other direction? Now it is set to descendending order, which gives oldest topics at first.
With ascendending order the newest would be first.

I think doing this would also reduce the bumping of far too old threads! Beside that it is by far faster if you search for a certain thread as a "new-school" Peeler.  wink

It should be a moderator's duty to check it. They have the power, let them also take the responsibility.

Jerkberg:
A) PEEL is not related to #FC, don't bring your problems here.
B) If you have to, take them to the #Futuramachat thread.
C) Stop being annoying, i thought you weren't that bad but it's even getting to me.

Is there really that much stuff on PEEL that requires instant Mod action? Maybe we could all get beepers so if a thread needs closing, or someone was spelling poorly, we could drop what we were doing in the real world and take care of it.

It's a message board.

Hey, Juliet was willing to say "sorry" too, look how well-respected she is.

I agree with VF, it's just a message board.  The only thing worse that those who are annoying, is the fucks who complain about them. 

Seriously, get yourself a life, and this shit wouldn't matter so much.

M0le has put an invalid email address in his profile by accident and can't reactivate it, he needs it to be reset, if possible.

Ooy: Put two and two together. My posts are constantly getting deleted for saying bad stuff. However, they were the last posts in the thread. So it will say that. I had a post deleted because I was trying to stay on topic while making fun of the overuse of question marks and exclamation points in the initial post.

In saner conspiracy-less news, sometimes the last post of a thread doesn't show up. It's a glitch in the system and the post will show up once someone else posts there. Occasionally you will see someone post "posting to show ghost post", forcing the new post to be visible. Why it happens isn't yet known. I heard aliens, Area 51 and the Illumanti are getting together for secret meetings though...

Speaking of alternative browsers (like firefox), I have a request having to do with the browser Opera. Whenever I try to go to a specific page on a thread directly from the place where all of the threads are listed (I forget what it's called), it takes me to page one. This doesn't happen in any other browser I've used. Normally I wouldn't complain about it, but it gets kind of annoying after a while.

I haven't used opera in a while, but i believe the solution is to press F12, then in the menu that pops up; disable Javascript.

Also i think it's patched in the latest version.

They're not always blue, though... Some people are the mystical last Urban-Legend star. And the star itself is replaced with Alex's avatar. I cleared out my temporary files, and it's fine, now.

I'll send you several pounds over my paypal account if you say no and ban Jerkberg.

Seriously, do not. Also the Politics thread is turning into an annoying pro/against Abortion whine and I want someone to close it if it keeps going, as a personal request can they eat a gummy fetus while doing so?

Nurdo, I don't even want to sit here and listen to this anymore. If a thread annoys you, stay out of it. It's no less interesting than you and your communism anyway.

PEEL's been doing good lately. No trolls to report of(at least none on a large scale). Let's keep it that way.

Lampy: I'm not being mean or anything, it's just that I want to read something that isn't a for or against argument about abortion. I wanna discuss and read something else, I want to live! why won't you let me live!
