The abortion thread got closed so people can't post there.

Complaint: I'm too short!
(Sorry, joke from Seinfeld)

My real complaint is that the Administrators and Moderators are closing all the good threads.  If there are two threads about the same thing, then close one, not both.

*bump* For some reason, at times my gender symbol changes to unknown.  I can change it back, but I don't know why it does that and I can't change it back on posts already made.  Really annoying.

[edit] OK it changes back on posts made, for instance the one above this, but still pretty annoying.
[edit2] And it changed my e-mail to not viewable by people.  WTF's up with this?
[edit3] Now that I look, it's supposed to be male-yes-yes, but it was dunno-no-no.  Weird.

The mod squad recently closed This thread, its predecessor, whose use had been accomplished, and a question thread by its creator Eyedol7513, all without fully explaining why they were closed.

Now, I think I know why they were closed: they were contests with limited entry, and I can see how that would bother people.  I didn't notice any sort of policy statements from the admins or mods before now, but I guess there was no precendent.

What I want to know is why was this contest allowed to continue for six pages and four rounds without one single peep from a moderator?  Nobody made any sort of complaint until he opened a second thread, which admittedly wasn't necessary except for clarity.  Why was something apparently against the rules allowed to continue for so long before a judgment was made?  If VF had come along on page 1 and said "this concept is exclusionist and against the philosophy of the board *closed*," I personally would have shrugged it off and moved on.

I suppose this is more of a question than a complaint: why did the mods take so long to reach a decision, and then start locking threads without consulting/discussing with the guy who created the offedning concept?

My guess? Because they didn't notice. The Mods aren't around 24/7. They would've shut them down earlier if they'd found them.

Also, mods don't need to consult with users in order to shut down threads.

If a user wants to ask a mod whether they can start particular kind of thread, they can always ask a mod, either through E-mail (which might be in their profile), or by checking on one of these threads in the Wish Void, like that Questions/Suggestions one.

Yes, I'm making assumptions. And a mod could come along and jump on me for being presumptuous. Still, it's as good an answer as any.

At least I'm not alone. Someone in charge (no offense to regular PEEL members), please explain this to me. As stated by Nerd-o-rama, that contest was allowed to continue for 4 rounds, and expand to 6 pages. (Roughly 2-3 weeks. Possibly more.)

I realize that Mods aren't able to be here 24/7, but for 2 1/2 weeks?

I understand my question thread being closed, and my new Futurama Trivia Champion thread being closed, but why the overall concept? If people had felt left out, they could've easily told me, and I would've cancelled the game. If no one said anything, it can be safely assumed that they read the rules, accepted it, and moved on. If there were no complaints, then why still close it? And again, it's a public thread. Anyone can talk in it, and discuss the game, as long as they're nice enough to not post the answer.

And why do you think one sentence explains everything? It doesn't, especially when there is nothing against that kind of concept in any of the rules.

I would just like it clarified. Basically, why wasn't a good reason for the thread being closed given, and why was the first one allowed to last as long as it did?

(Especially when no one complained. Hell, at least two users asked for reservations for the second game. As far as I can tell, they had no problems with the concept, and were patiently waiting for the chance to play.)

And if that fails, which would be completely unfair, and a perfect example of abuse of power, could I post the same thing, have for example 50 questions, keep score, BUT ALLOW ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PLAY, TO PLAY? (And the person who has the most points after all questions have been posted, wins?)

PEEL isn't an exclusive club and it's not a chat room. I don't like the idea of you having a game that only certain people can play (for example 5 at a time) and especially on the last page of the old game, it was just you and two other people posting. If you want to set up a game like that, why don't you set up your own website or see if CGEF wants to get involved.

and someone did complain, that's how I found out about it in the first place.

Ah, the joys of e-mail...or ICQ or AIM or whatever.

Next time someone has a conceptual problem with one of my threads (I can't speak for anyone else) I'd like the complaint to be addressed to me personally, just because I hate it when people go over my head.  My e-mail and AIM are both in the profile.

Well, I consider my question answered.  Better luck next time, Eyedol.

Ok, good to know that Nerd-o-rama, but concerning Eyedol, he hasn't made any way to contact him official.
And I also think that threads/games like these aren't complient to any (not only Peel) message board, because it leaves out the main part of a comunity for some time.

As VelourFog proposed I'd better use a website, or private (AIM or comparable) chatroom for this, since it is a fast played game for only few persons held daily at the same time. It shouldn't be so hard to do in a chat.  smile

OK, I understand the fact some people may feel left out.

What if I had the game with the same concept, but allowed everyone on PEEL who wanted to play, to play?
Say I post 50 questions, 3-5 everyday, and at the end of 50 questions, whoever has the most points wins? And could I continue another game on the same thread?

^Would that be OK?

And when I registered, I didn't feel like posting my e-mail, so I apologize. Now if I need to be contacted, I have an e-mail address.

I guess that would be ok, then. in fact this sheme is used already in the offtopic board for the music-cover game. Someone posts 5-10 questions and then everyone can answer. In the end there'll be the chart of points.

You may correct your profile, just activate the
"Keep your email address

" option.

Just a quick question. Why do you have to check if it's OK to do that? There are a lot of trivia games in General Discussion, and all of them allow anyone to post. Mine would now be the same as those games.
Or is it the fact that I have to announce a winner after a certain amount of questions? If so, then I understand, and apologize for posting this. (But I had to get it off my chest.)
If that is the problem, then I honestly don't think it's a big deal. I would keep starting new games, and if it got popular, would only open a new thread if it ever got to 20 pages. (Which I think is the limit.)

Well you can only upload it yourself, because it gets attached to your profile. The problem why you can't upload it is because it is wider than 450 pixels (sadly this isn't written down anywhere).

Try to save this to your computer and then upload it as your signature.



or one of these:

I got an e-mail that KAH replied to 'What Country Is It From?' and went later and there's no post by him.  Was it deleted or something?

I like to complain about bunnycat and her obsession on talking about sex all the time. It annoys me a lot. Yes sex is fun and great but I wish she would stop going on and on and on about it like I use to.

For annoying spam complaints please see this thread (which I will advice mArc to ignore) or get a life.

For complaints about another member please use the alert button at the bottom of the offending post.

Juliet, you're hardly in a position to complain about other PEELers posting about sex, acting "n00bish" (although i think i'll agree with Archie on the hatred of this term). Don't bring those complaints here.

The "Dead Celebrity" thread should be reopened. Every time some celebrity dies, we get a new thread. Every time, we get the complaints there should be 1 thread. This time the original thread got locked and re-directed to the general thread. Tweek then goes and just closes the thread due to spam. I see no point in this. Delete the spam and start-over or something, don't just keep this cycle going.

I agree. Also... I'd think the 2004 PEELie thread should be reopened. It was not members of the nominating committee making suggestions about who should be nominated, it was general PEELers... and I see no reason why those who were not selected for the committee can't at least suggest who they would pick, given the opportunity. Let everyone have a little fun, won't you?

If you do that, I will so send you money. You got a Paypal account?

Okay, back to business. Secondry accounts, should they be allowed anymore? It's getting quite annoying and confusing when someone pops up who acts in a way that reminds people of a certain PEELer that left a week ago or someone that posts once a full moon and they we get accusations right and left because people think it's that girl/guy with another account.

They were funny once apon a time, now they are just annoying.

I was browsing through old threads, found Archeological Dig. Then I clicked on a link in that thread, which bought me to the old Fiesta Hitler pic thread. I noticed the avatars were all red X's, so I hit the reload button and was treated to this disturbing sight.

All the spam in several threads complaining about them is far more anoying than they are. At least this is the correct place to mention it  smile

Nurdy, they should either all get banned or just those that have behaved in a way that would get a regular poster banned.
