Wish List for Cythera's webboards



  • This is a topic I started where you can politely ask to have a moderator do something, like delete spam in a specific topic, possibly lock a topic, mediate a dispute over something, etc. Slayer and I (Gandreas and andrew are usually too busy) will try to keep up with the requests. We will check to see if it is a valid request, if it is a mad person wanting to close a topic because he lost a game of dice...well, we probably won't do it. However, if there is a topic with obscure or offensive content and a request that we edit it out, we most likely will.

    Please post your requests here, and not in the topic it occurs (well, you can if you want to be specific), and in some cases, the dates and times of the offending post(s)/topic(s) and the person who posted it. It is easier than it sounds and I'm trying to prevent the topics from being cluttered. Also, it saves us time when we look through a 50-topic post for the offending post that someone mentioned in a completely different topic. This is a way so we don't have to look through every topic (though some of us will probably do so) to find requests. Furthermore, if you post your request here, it'll most likely be answered faster than if it was posted elsewhere.

    Sample:

    Dear wise moderators,

    There is a problem with the 'those goddamn smileys' topic. Some posts in there abuse the privelage of the image tag our administrater gave us. Could you please edit the images out, or close the topic? (then the date of the posts and the poster of the offending posts would be listed afterward, preferably in order)

    --(insert name here) (optional)

    That was a sample of a request, and no, you don't have to grovel like that when you request something. I hope this topic is used to its full extent, and doesn't rot away while offending topics are cluttered.

  • Dear GODLY moderators... :)

    Please delete the large amount of spam created by certain people (me included :frown: ) in the "character info" topic. I think it is lots of spam there that needs to be removed so people won`t need to scroll through piles of meaningless posts just to edit their character...

    Note: I created the "goddamn smilies" topic just because I couldnt get them to work properly, not to abuse them on this webboard. I myself had not time to read the last posts before Andrew removed the tags, so I really dont know how srious it was in the end.

  • You can consider the Character Info to be de-spammified. BTW, I decided to finally put my character description up.

  • Isn't that one guys post of an actual character in the game? I think so....the one that talks about talking with Glaucus, etc.

    ------------------
    And so the problem remained; lots of people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they had all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that the trees had been a bad move and that no one should ever have left the oceans. - Douglass Adams

    I wrote that Rogan helped Glaucus with his wine, because Rogan loves the Northshore Red wine. Its not meant to be game-related and my post is not a description of the character in my game but a description of my character on the webboard "team stories". Dont even think about deleting him! ;)

  • I took out most of those. The last one seemed to be part of the story. That topic is now back down to one page.

    That would be a good sign. The perfect webboard would have no problems, but of course moderators wouldn't be needed then and we'd be jobless. Maybe that isn't a good sign after all... ;)

  • Avatara, could you (in Part II: Onslaught) collapse LKH on my head already? I've been waiting for days, now, and I don't have all day to die.

    Done, and Theo...what do you mean? LKH collapse? (appearantely I missed a post somewhere)

  • I thought you said that no one should go into LKH because it was going to collapse. I could be wrong, though, or maybe you ment Pynx. Hmmm...maybe you could let me know if something else is going to collapse, though? ;)

  • It was Pynx, and that was a while ago. Anything else going to collapse? Well, not unless Kestrel enters the bar... ;) (j/k)
