    What clique is there with 12 posters?

    Ok Clans forum is mega-retarded but that forum could be excluded.

    No, this is a serious suggestion which could be trialed and add a bit of fun. Abuse would mean collaborators having to PM each other and getting a posse up etc. For a 6 hour ban? Not sure people would bother.

    However if the offender got n auto PM saying something along the lines of "12 y ...[text shortened]... ct but not long enough to cause serious inconvenience. Actually maybe 12 hours wou do be better.
    Apologies for misunderstanding your original post. Displeasure with a post is usually indicated by a thumbs down, so jumped to conclusions.

    Might be interesting to give the power to non-subscribers, as members should really know better and post responsibly. 🙂

    divegeester why involve other subscribers.
    Surely it would be better if you alone decided what was appropriate.

    Maybe, but I saw it as subscriber benefit initially.

    What if [b]subscribers
    have the collective power to inflict short forum bans on any other poster they see misbehaving?

    A short sharp shock from one's fellow public forum contributors. Posts could not be removed but the short ban would have to be linked/referenced to a ...[text shortened]... er to the people

    It seems to me that the status quo and moaning about it are more important to some posters than actual progress through experimentation. I'm reminded of the hue and cry at the last major site upgrade.

    That's just normal human behaviour. There are a lot of books out there on "change management" since people are so adverse to change.

    why 6 hours?

    what about a variable ban time?

    6 hours for minor offense,
    6 days for a mayor abuse

    This is a chess website not a multi-national mega conglomerate. Surely people here are open to a few new ideas or experimentation?

    Why not just let the mods do their job and stop whining about it.

    Everyone thinks they need help or that they could do a better job, which I really, really doubt.

    90% of a mod's job is invisible, so that's why they don't have to answer to the hoi polloi.
