The flaw in what you're saying is that you're claiming it's your site. Red Hot Pawn is not your site, it belongs to the administrators. When moderating happens the moderators are following the wishes of the site administrators. There are plenty of times where the wishes of the administrators conflict with the wishes of the community in terms of forum ...[text shortened]... t's "ours". Ours to the extent that subscription allows it to be ours, that is.
dude, when dive said 'our' he meant 'our' not 'mine' as you so wish to twist his post into. don't puts words into peoples mouths, you're giving a bad name to the rest of the forum moderators.
for a start dive is not taking about the 'site' just it's forums, forums that lets face it the administrators don't really
care about. they're nothing making any money directly from them and they put their trust into a few people to keep the forum 'user friendly' we'll say. it is a 13+ site, certain things shouldn't be allowed and no one is debating that fact.
what many of us are seeing since the new mods came to town though is a much stricter, less enjoyable forum. petty things are being removed that wouldn't have been under the old team, yes it's the responsibility of the poster to post within the 'forum guidelines' but as a mod you don't need to take those guidelines as your koran, common sense plus a sense of humor should be used when dealing with leftfield posts and certain alerts.

funny that because the new over moderating style is pushing people not to renew their subscription... how do you think the admin feel about that?
Paying for the site doesn't mean that you own the site. It means you are entitled to the privileges that come with subscription. Subscribers don't get to control the content of the forums. Subscribers are allowed extended privilege in their forum use.
there you do putting words into people mouths again, in a quite patronising way i might add. the forums are free to use, subscriptions don't come into play here, non-subs (once they've been here a while) should be allowed to alert posts as well imo.
