6. Moderators - Moderators are the key to the success of any board. They are expected to live up to a higher standard as such we expect you to treat them with a higher standard. Any rule broken against a moderator could result in a temporary suspension of posting priveleges. Publicly disrespectful behavior from a member toward a moderator regarding moderator actions or decisions may also result in a summary suspension of that member's posting privileges.
Please note that the moderating team is under no obligation to read every post. Occasionally, inappropriate posts will slip by unnoticed by the mods, if you see one of these posts, please report it immediately by using the "report post" button under the offenders avatar. This is the icon:
6a. If there are any concerns over moderator actions, the only way to officially address them is with a private message (PM) to Vauge or a moderator. Your feedback and concerns are very valuable to the success of this board. Each and every PM will be read and investigated. However, until specifically told by a moderator, of a reversal, the moderator action is considered official.
Publicly disrespectful and/or negative behavior from a member regarding a moderator's capacity as a mod, the moderator team in general, or moderator actions may not occur on any open forums.(see addendum)
Violations of any of the above guidelines is termed "Insubordination" and may result in a summary suspension or termination of that member's posting privileges.
6a. Addendum - Understanding that at times members may need to vent, a new area in The Basement, called "Where's my Binky", has been created that is exempt from 6a and made specifically for members wishing to rant about moderator action. No issues will be resolved or overturned due to disputes here, and moderator participation in this thread is not mandatory.
