Where are you drgrudge....???

You can see the forum dont have much tech discussion now. Compare the 3 months old digit forum with the current digit forum. Very rare tech discussion, few gets perfect solution of the problem. most regular members visit once in 1-2 days for 5 min.
True..!! People (me included) have started losing interest in this forum for various reasons... I'm far more active nowadays in other forums than this.. :(

Well said ravi
The forum was at it's best 3 months ago..

I still remember i used to go to the college internet cafe as soon as the college ends and used to sit there 1-2 hrs browsing digit forum..i never missed a day...even when their were no classes i used come to the college just to see my digit..

After that i got a BSNL BB in my home....As soon as i got the net i dunno what happened to this forum....i never miss a thread but all threads seems to be in flame or some BS discussion...Original post was intended to say something and the discussion was something else...

Forum building takes a long time......and forum vanishment takes a very small time.....

I think the title of this thread says it all, "The Whining/Complaint Thread" and it certainly is not called "You whine, we fix!":D

what i've observed about the mods here is that if there is a conflict of interest between the mods and members they won't reply n the thread, newer mods like kalpik & hitboxx though bother and choose to do so but certain other mods don't.

what makes matters worse is that the admins too don't bother to reply because the forum activity stats give them the liberty not to do so :)

Let me share my personal thoughts on a few proposals made here and then some more :)

1) Ask admin for a ban: This is highly impractical, imagine going to the admin asking for a ban everytime, while the fact is, the position of moderator is created so that admin can't be there everywhere and everytime, not to mention they are not the admin for just the forum while we are the mods for just the forum.

2) 24 hour deadline: Someone suggested the user must be time-framed for 24 hours between the warning and the ban. Let's take an example, glance this thread, when a user is out for kicks and ignoring all forum policy, if I do give him the 24 hours time, will he heed? No, because he won't bother. And because the activity of the members is swift and agile (thankfully), reactions and counter-reactions occur with a very short time frame. And if you take the particular thread in question, the user even managed to get another id and come and hit back at a member. NOW, imagine the same scenario in regard to 10 members in 10 different threads in 10 different sections, how should we manage?.

3) Mod assisted ban: Regarding this, we do consult other mods whenever we are in doubt on how to react to a particular situation, and different mods have different working hours, so it gets a little difficult due to the nature of the internet.

4) Mods are users too: We are users too, just like you, no better no less. Scanning every post, reading discussions, maintaining directions, etc take just half of a mod's daily ritual, and in most of the cases what happens is, due to the nature of the content, when we would have already edited the things beforehand and a user oblivious to this, who just came in, demands the mod for a justification for the actions he has taken there. You tell me, is it fair we have to gone on explaining every other action? And there is the other evil too, spams, and this forum has become some sort of hit list for the spam(bots & humans) these days.

An example


So you see, we do tend to be vulnerable to the same things that you all are. Only constant improvisation will lead to a better growth and we are trying.

As for the particular incident, I can't practically comment or judge, as you should understand, it may be an emotional moment, it may be a spur of feelings, or something entirely different for the party involved, I don't know nor can I imagine. All I can say is we are trying to do the best we can.

These were just my thoughts and in no way affiliated to anybody :)

@hitboxx: i chose to stay away from this topic considering my previous run-ins with 3 other mods, but wth!

when u make your second point, you lose some credibility in my eyes (not that you should care), why?

Neither are we so dumb nor are u, the case your pointing is a blatant violation of laws & ethics and I don't see any member revolting against that decision, the member is a new guy to this forum & is using defamatory language, but there are various occasions where mods have used their powers against members who have been around long, are well known to other members even mods in some cases, when you weigh such a case with the 1 u pointed out makes no sense, there is no comparison.

eggman, is a well-known active member, fellow members know him, he has credible posts to himself, it is rather dis-respectful that you compare him with the guy you pointed out to.

most of the active members are well aware of what amount of work a mod needs to put in (note: some members are mods at other forums too)

a member who is well known, who is active, has credible posts to himself giving him a 24 hr warning will work for the good rather than the bad ;) ask kalpik he would agree.

Fair enough, but my thoughts were in regards to the general feel of mods being anything else but mods.

It's got nothing to do with eggman or drgrudge. :)

I agree with you, the purpose of mods are to reduce the load of admin.
2) 24 hour deadline: Someone suggested the user must be time-framed for 24 hours between the warning and the ban. Let's take an example, glance this thread, when a user is out for kicks and ignoring all forum policy, if I do give him the 24 hours time, will he heed? No, because he won't bother.

NOW, imagine the same scenario in regard to 10 members in 10 different threads in 10 different sections, how should we manage?.
But you have to take the case of innocent mistakes, when user is unaware of his mistake. Better give him warning, in case of repeat... Ban him.like iMav says.....
3) Mod assisted ban: Regarding this, we do consult other mods whenever we are in doubt on how to react to a particular situation, and different mods have different working hours, so it gets a little difficult due to the nature of the internet.

Yup. Noone is complaining on the inefficiency of mods.We all know its a hard job for you fellas and (most of)you are good at your work.:) But if someone thinks himself superior to everyone and misuses his power he needs to be stripped off his power. ...

Why don't you tell that particular half of the involved party to give justification for his Godly action,instead of hiding under babooon.:p

Of course, we do and can differentiate a silly mistake by a newbie and a reputed member and then the inbetweens. But most fun lovers(register just for the kick) we see are just out for kicks and this has been true in recent times.

That was an example.

if the mod assisted ban response is being made because of this, then let me clarify that the consensus need be sought only if the member to be banned has more than 10/15 posts

obviously it would be impracticle/unnecessary to wait for other mods when a new member starts posting ads for shoes sex and drugs

Oh! i think i missed a lot of things!

But i think that When someone is given Great powers for greater good and he misuses it Then The Power Must be Taken from him (like it happened in SHAKTIMAAN WEN HE SAVED GITA'S LIFE :lol: :mrgreen: i think u guys remeber SHAKTIMAAN, Do U?)

and where is DRgrudgy now! His action was really unfair!

HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR MISSUSING HIS POWER :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
