Dang AMD ZEN you are on a roll attacking members here.. threatening to kill us is a very serious threat. You know you could get into a lot of trouble for that? But I could care less... you can't ban anyone because you're moderatorship here is over once David gets back in.

I agree with Matt; but I also feel that CF as a whole has slipped. The no-BS attitude kept this place inline, kept people getting along and yet still let people have fun. Now, the place seems to have turned into a playground all over CF. People aren't following rules, and some Moderators are showing favouritism towards members and letting them get away with the breaking of rules.

Question Re: Forum

I'll have to say that this place has let the rules bend , maybe too much for many member's.

But on the flip side of that, If Mods are too strict w/the Rules...As long as they are in-line..

Will Result in tention building, then in time...There is the feel of member's against the Mods.And the last thing CF needs is division.

I'd like to know there is a equal balance between the Mods keeping the site in order, and the Member's ...Behaving appropriately.

No I am not happy because some select members go out of their way to argue with others and make "noobies" lives harder

I'm not totally happy because of a particular mod. This particular mod doesn't do a good job moderating, shoves his own opinion to others, locks threads that he gets disgusted with, and acts like god. I'm sure most of the members know which mod I am talking about...HE SHOULD NOT BE A MOD!

I disagree; before, as Giancarlo said, there was a no tolerance attitude around this place; none of the Moderators took any bullshit, and, not to blow my own trumpet here, I was one of them. However, members starting going on about how the place wasn't "fun" anymore; so, we let them have their fun. The result? Look around dude; people are leaving, more and more complaints are coming through, and the place in all honesty, is an absolute shambles. CF has turned into a internet theme park, and I, along with many others, am sick of it. We've had more flame wars through our little "fun" era than we'd had in the 6 months before it begun.

I personally have to say that you are correct in CF turning into a theme park, So are you saying that there should be a Tight grip on the Rules ?

The way it was, before it turned into a zoo ? If so, I will support your call on this !!

I do want our member's here to have fun, But It has been taken avantage of, Most will agree.

Well, once we have everyones opinions, and David has checked through his PMs to see if any complaints about certain/moderators have come through, then we (the staff, including yourself) will discuss it to see what we can do to make everyone happy to some degree.

... I urge users to use this thread to say whatever they feel about this forum. Your complaints, your rants, whatever. Got a problem with how I do things? Fine; PM David about it. This is your oppurtunity to have your voice truelly be heard, so I suggest you take advantage of it. Oh ... and for god sakes be honest.

'

If you're talking about ....., I have to say I agree with you.

I'm not against him personally, just against his modship, because he locks threads just because, me and giancarlo are debating for example... hello.. Giancarlo and I have had different opinions on politics and global issues since he joined back in august. Now ***** comes and breaks up the fight... bullshit.. we're okay with flaming a bit, because we're still friends...

Which also brings me to... Mods should stop locking threads just because it's offensive to them or to a certain member. Like I said, I've been here longer then *****, I don't think it's fair that he locks my thread, for example, on views on bush because it's as he calls it "out of control".. when really were just doing what we've been doing for like over half a year. So in that sense, we DEFINATELY need some change.

Default Re: Forum

I have no choice but to name people in this thread. I cannot evade that.. it would look stupid.

I am not happy with the way this forum is operated because:

1) ***** is a moderator that acts like he is a god, an opinion expressed by other members. ***** acts like he is above everybody else and above the rules. He really shoves opinions down people throats and locks threads because he does not agree with the issues. As far as rakedog goes, he is still my friend. ***** has gone on a rampage locking threads unfairly, and misusing his powers.

2) Atmosphere of unprofessionalism! This is the kind of thing I see in individual members, rather then moderators. I see members typing a load of spam (like one word posts) and type up gibberish that is typically not backed up.

CF has collapsed in quality in recent months and this is putting the entire forum's future into grave question, and risk. This should be of concerned for the adminstrator. I think David should reshuffle moderators, and get rid of the moderator I mentioned earlier in this post. It is putting this entire forum at risk.

thats when i was first made mod, i like to refer to that time as the golden age, back when no one dared step out of line, where everyone was happy and friends but still stuck to the rules, back when we didnt have unfair mods, or rampaging arguments, or someone big kid thinking he was god

that my friends was the golden age of CF

Default Re: Forum

Hmmm, am I happy...

probably not. not naming any names, I generall stay out of the social lounge, basically because it's full of shit threads,
I think I left about the time that I couldn't look at the first page without seeing three, hello I'm new, or do you want to buy an Ipod threads.
I've got nothing against advertising in the advertising section.
and I've got nothing against new people saying hello in the getting to know you, or already established hello therads.
New people say that the longer term members are making it hard for them. well what can I say, don't make your first post a big hello, welcome to your own thread, make yourself known through the quality of your contributions.

As far as the moderators go.
This is no offence to David, but think you have made some quite poor choices, it seems like there was a period when you promoted just about anyone who wanted to be a mod.

What we have is a small clique moderating a whole forum, in some cases very badly, (and it'd not just limited to one moderator who's name has been said -despite Dvid asking people not to).

and perhaps that is a further problem, the actual users, in the first post in thes thread David said, don't mention names ni the thread. it took 10 posts before a name was mentioned, (and that was mentioned by a supposable responsible Guru member)...
The moderators have no respect for anyone other than themselves, and their newfound powers, and hence the members have lost respect for the moderators.

Sorry David, I rushed through the posts, didn't see that.

But I think I still get my point across.

Tis time for reform my dear friends. Join me in it, as I begin the next age of CF, the Emerald Age of Computer Forums. I will be making a post in the social lounge about it. I hope you can join me in my idea to make CF the BEST site on the web.

Okay this is what I dont like the certain Mod Im pretty sure everyone is talking about is AMD Zen, dont edit this because thats just censorship and is totally against our rights to express our opinions. Okay now I know Zen has his heart in the right places but frankly I find it plain annoying, STOP ALTERING EVERYTHING. The Emerald age? It sounds like a cult, just drop it. Also its annoying how Zen locks threads that are anti him. The one in the suggestions lounge which had to be unlocked because his only reason for locking it was he didnt agree with it, THATS ABUSE OF POWER. If this forum is to be set straight I personally think that AMD should be reverted back to Guru. Okay well thats my shpeel.

Go join the Emerald Age, I won't fight back with you over this. As a matter of fact, I agree with you. I am part of a reform, join me, or be stuck in the Dark Ages of CF, your choice. And I won't censor it at all, you have the right to voice your opinion of me if you choose. I will try to be more weary of thread locks, but at the same time, do not expect me to be weak, and pitiful. If you want me to be Guru, who would you have be MOD?

I dont want to be mod. Stop with all this Emerald Age bullshit. Not locking threads inappropriatly does not make you weak and pitiful it just makes everything fairer.
