Message 1 of 103 in Discussion

Izzet you make considerable income from this site and it is in your interest to make sure it does not implode, and you have given moderator powers to a goodly number of contributors, some who leave people including me gasping in amazement, some who had powers on other boards, some whose postings have been covered in inuendo, these people have now got the power to delete posts at the flick of a switch so to speak, at least let us know publicly on board which moderator deleted a particular post then we will be able to build up a picture of what is happening

Moderators have the final word. If you have a problem or a complaint, email Izzet off board. Do not post it on the board.

Why do you need to know this?



Either you accept moderation or you don't.



I can only see that this request serves to undermine.

I am afraid the mods message on msg 1 stinks of dictatorship.



I am happy to be moderated, have had personal moderatrion on other forums, but this is not acceptable.



To avoid confrontation, because this is what you have set up. I request the mod concerned removes this comment.

cyprusishome - the comment on the first message is a direct copy from the Forum Rules.



As it says, if you think it 'stinks of dictatorship', then please contact Izzet - off board - and discuss it with him, as they are his rules.

Surely there is no harm in a moderator putting their name to a deleted or altered post, what harm does it do and if they have nothing to hide why not

If the reason for the alteration or deletion is not patently obvious, i.e personal attack, racist, etc then people will naturally wonder why the post was moderated, if the mods don,t feel comfortable putting their name on the board then perhaps the courtesy of an email to the member concerned could be the answer.



Moderators do not need to explain their actions, do not complain about this, hardly diplomatic is it.

Message 10 of 103 in Discussion

this is just getting silly,i thought that the purpose of the moderators was to stop personal attacks and abuse aimed at other forum members,but now they

(moderators) would appear to be deleting anything they dont agree with. an

explanation, as to why the post has been deleted i think would be welcome, for all to see.what we need from the moderators, is just a little common sense

and not a blanket ban on post,s that they dont like for what ever reason. i think izzet, has enough to do, without checking his e/m,s all the time to make judgements, on censorship,this i thought was why we had the new, moderators

in the first place.freedom of speech yes,verbal abuse no.the moderators have a

difficult job to do,but it should be done in moderation.

Of course moderators should explain their actions.

Boredhousewife for one has a history of banning members on another board by been judge,jury and executioner and then having to apologise for getting it wrong.

She has already proved she cannot handle the 'power'

Explaining your actions before hand avoids the 'act now,think later' metality.

We need some transparency when a post is deleted. The Moderator needs to clarify why a particular post has been deleted.

Britvic,



I requested the change of one member one ID as I felt that it was undermining the integrity of the board to have people arguing both sides just to upset people...



Now, I have to say they I knew Dodger and Newlad were one and the same but my problem was not with him as he only uses his split personality in a humorous way..



It was with the suspicion that others were not being anything other than duplicitous in their use of this board's latitiude to further an agenda/ outwith the aim and intentions of this forum...



OH, And I don't mean PP. Who may be many things but I don't believe him to have more than one ID on this or any other board...



We rely on the honesty of posters to say what they truly think not what will cause the most grief...



I also requested the new limit on the number of times items for sale could be sent BTTT.. not too rigid mind I might want to sell something! ;)

post,s are being deleted, for what would appear to be for no rhyme or reason,

other than the moderator,he or she,feels that it has infringed,the forum rules.

should we accept this without question,or expect an explanation.i think the latter.with an explanation we can then understand why the post was deleted

in the first place.this then gets rid of any dought,s as to why it was deleted.

Seems to me that you cannot make everyone happy. A couple of weeks ago this forum got totally out of control and everyone was screaming out for a moderator to do something. Action has been taken.



I have not had to use my moderator powers as of yet and would certainly not abuse them. If I were to delete a post, I would edit all the text from it (so the message number would still be there and make a moderator note to say why this has been done (with my name on it too). Surely this has to be the fairest way to deal with it. This would then make my actions answerable to the whole forum. We must get away from any cloak and dagger situations and have total trust or we are just going to end up with a them and us situation.



So to round it all up. If I edit something, you will know it was me!!



Now it's up to the other moderators to follow.

I think that is all people are asking for, it is not too much to ask for surely.

Hopefully the other moderators will take the same view and perhaps then some of the unpleasantness will go away, if they don,t I think this will rattle on for a while yet.

I agree with your post Nige. If you don't like the rules then don't post. The rules are not that bad anyway.

I suppose you could compare posting to a game of football. If you break the rules of the game then you are 'yellow' carded. If you break it again it's a 'red' and you are off my son!

Nigel

Do your comments include those you have made on other boards, not only the ones regarding you being moderated, out of order is the phrase you used I believe.

And what of the personal remarks made about some of the moderators/members on this board and other sites they may have registered on, are they not personal remarks.

Kettle and black spring to mind.

You put what ever slant you wish on anything if you can not or choose not to see i was trying to be even handed so be it, as for remarks about some of the moderators ( plural ) i think if you read again a comment has been made about 1 mod and his activaties as part of an orchastrated cyber bully gang the history is there in cyber space for all to see.

A moderator who talks sense! Of COURSE this is the best and only way to do it. I may stand to be corrected, but if the plethora of mods we now have among us didn't even have a briefing to include this or something like it, we have a BB equivalent of the TRNC - utterly disorganised, chaotic, nobody taking responsibility for their actions and only a handful of people showing any talent.

Honestly Pike,

You were talking sense at first, why did you have to spoil the tone of the post by the above comparison, everyone knows how you feel about TRNC but please, don,t let it colour every post you make, it doesn't do you any favours.

On the posts which i have had the occasion to delete , i have issued a warning , and if deleted , i have offered an explanation on why i deleted that post . Its there for all to see . If you want to know who moderated a post , then i too will be happy to put my name to it . I do have to say though , before the recent furore , moderators were not a problem . I understand that two moderators were away at the same time , so the fact is , that they could'nt do anything at that time to alleviate the problems anyway .

Can we not obliterate the Moderator thread.I have of late, wherefore I know not, lost all of my mirth. And indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame here seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'er-hanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appeareth nothing to me but a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculties! How like an angel in apprehension, how like a God! The beauty of the world, paragon of animals! And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor women neither. Nor women neither. Only thou Moderator, oh thy brave and only Moderator.

Stop this farcical nonsense.

I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about this moderating nonsense but first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it:

"I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

Re: Message 13.



I havent had a computer for the last week so am just catching up.



Gooligan I just want to explain to you the situation with the TBV owners forum. I was asked to be the assistant regarding members on that forum. All the owners on that forum said they only wanted "owners" and no-one else. I was advised to ask everyone who wanted to join a few simple questions suggested by the manager of that forum to which I did. I also then asked people kindly to fill out their details of who they were and which apartment they owned so every other owner could see who their neighbour was and get to know them. Some people chose to not do this. It was then bought to my attention that SM were on the board so I then sent out another request asking people to fill out their details otherwise I would have no choice to delete them to try and filter out SM's membership. This was all above board. I just wonder why people ignored this simple request I made and hence some people got deleted ..

Sorry mickey.

I forgot to ask one question with reference to your sweeping statement in message No.1.



"Izzet you make considerable income from this site".

Is that just supposition or based on facts that you are party to?

...and then rejoined and apologised for not having filled in their details and after I explained the situation were happy. I apologised to you for deleting you but had explained because you hadnt completed your details we were filtering out non-owners. I was only going by the wishes of most of the owners that had responded on the forum to a question "do you want this an open forum or owners only" and the majority said yes keep it to owners. Hopefully you will understand the situation I was in in trying to contain all private information private which was a very difficult task hence why I handed it over to Beverley because I was fed up with a few people constantly moaning!

Lem,



Stand back and I will let you have your pressie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Splash!



Did you know our old friend MM is back on board. Read his early bits on VO and sounds like he and Veta have had a real mare!! Just wish them luck.



I know some love to hate MM and ES and PP etc but those who have met them know different.



Back to it. As a mod of course you are the enemy and as such I hate you!!!!



PS - I plead guilty. E-mail if you wish, how is other half and that tearaway kid of yours.

It does not take brain of Britain, just someone with a modicum of intelligence to see the amount of advertisers on this site and to look at the tarriffs charged by Izzet for advertising to see that he in his guise of travel agent makes considerable income from it

I think Izzet needs to explain to the new mods what 'being light on the tiller' means..



It seems that petty moderating is the order of the day... The trouble with this is going to be that they won't 'spot the wood for the trees' i.e they are going to miss another attack by a BB bully because they are too busy micro-managing us all...



The lack of a 'report this post' facility appears to be the real problem.. so maybe there should be a central email account that the mods have access to so that they can pick up complaints timeously

BHW,lets get one thing straight.You deleted me from another board after listening to tittle tattle on this board.

You say that,and I quote "All the owners on that forum said they only wanted "owners" and no-one else."

Thats not entirely true is it.It was a handfull as well you know.

Thae fact remains that you have proved in the past you ban members first,ask questions later.

Thank you David. I know MM has had a rough time of it both with his illness and the visa problems Veta has had.



Wife and Ethan both doing fine, I've got a new grandson who is just over a year old and is a little pickle. Him and Ethan are roughly developmentally the same age.



Still plodding on in the Department dishing out National Insurance numbers to Poles and Bulgarians, nothing ever seems to change.

Lem,



Am I picking up on a bit of xenophobia? Is it only Poles and Bulgarians?



Better surely that they have National Insurance numbers so that they can contribute to the tax revenue of the country than become part of the black economy?

Gooligan people emailed me off board so you would not have read everyone's comments. There were about 3/4 people who thought maybe it might be an idea to have SM on board but the majority posted on and off board saying absolutely no. You were one of the few that decided not to respond to one question (in fact I asked it a few times) "please please could people fill in their details"! It was then after reading someone making out you werent an owner that I took the decision to delete your membership which I feel was fairly done. It was only then that you contacted me. Punk Rocker I never messed up the other board I was only ever dealing with memberships and did as I was requested to do. I am no IT boff like Beverley is and therefore Beverley is more able and has done a great job of re-arranging things, making things easier to view etc etc. That was never something I was asked to do so I cant see why you want to say I messed the other board up or do you have a motive? ........

The point is, If a post is really offensive to the majority then it should be taken off, if it is just something petty an taken off, then new threads start asking, where, why, when.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Ref your message No.67

An easy assumption to make but my guess is you have no knowledge of what Izzet spends or receives from his business interests. So your comments are not valid.

What Izzet earns from running this forum is irrelevant to any thread and is of no business to anybody.

Bill... it is of some business to Izzet...



As Izzet declared that he did make a small return on his time and investment I guess it's in the public domain but I don't really see that it's all that relevant..



It's a bit like a newspaper being asked to run an article criticising their biggest advertiser... it's going to take a lot of thinking about.

Gavin, You are quite right Izzet did 'declare' that he made a sum of money for running this forum - which we all knew anyway. However I do feel that it really is none of our business and to bring the subject up in the context of this bloody moderator situation is irrelevant.

I feel that some people are out to get Izzet and damage the forum any which way they can. Clearly I exclude you from that group.

Alsan,

you are a 'mod' one of the people who is tasked with the decent running of this board yet you attack Mickey R for stating something that Izzet himself did make public, I think the point mickey was trying to make is that Izzet needs to be careful who he makes mods on his board as they , not all mind, are in a great way, being put in charge of something that has a value to him so they can do his business interest a lot of harm, IMHO you should not have responded like that as a moderator, and you do not KNOW if points are valid or not.

Again IMHO 'mods' should not be contentious and should be there for all to see, not hiding behind masks, and again IMHO anyone who asks to be a 'mod' is likely to have a bit of a craving to be a power junkie, only In My Humble Opinion though.

Punk,



I did advise that Izzet should have immediately discounted anybody who nominated themselves... as a sort of joke - but there is, I'm beginning to feel, an element of truth...



Umpires and Referees don't take free kicks or penalties; "that's just not fair... miss!" ;)



I don't think I've had a post moderated excepted where it was within a thread that has been removed in toto... but I still feel like they are sitting waiting to pounce.

yes i have no problem with izzet, but this moderator thing is not unbias.



about a month ago, i was being slandered by a new poster, i had a good idea who this was anyway.

a moderator sat back and watched this and did nothing.

i contacted izzet and asked him to let me watch the poster for a day or so before dealing with it. which he did.

the poster thinking they had got away with it carried it on to another level, thats when i asked izzet to deal with it.

why did the first moderator not deal with it, when it happened there and then?

it was probably to their benefit to sit , watch and laugh.

i have no intentions of saying anymore about the matter, but i'm not stupid enough to have not noticed.

When a discussion turns into a fight. The moderators should step in and stop it. However some of the moderators just join in the fight and make it worse??

They can read on the net how to moderate a forum. Some do not have a clue.

AJ,



I honestly though that after all your years on these forums, you of all people should know you are being set up.



I refused the job because it is an impossible one to do in the eyes of some and I just do not have the patience to list to a load of garbage that you may well have to do. Not pointing to anyone folks just a potential excample.



Until all the mods get together be it on Skype, messenger or whatever and thrash out a common policy this thread and all succesive ones will continue to snipe.



To be a GOOD moderator you have got to ignore comments as above, despite your inner feelings. Unfortunatley you have also got to remain fairly neutral on all issues.



My opinion of course but also as a systems analyst and manager you have all got to get out the pen and paper and come to some simple conclusions to present to the forum. Going to mean work, yes, but ultimatley it WILL save each mod a lot more work.

Just don't worry, I can handle myself. I can give as good as I get and being a mod should not stop me from being able to reply to any postings as long as I do not break the BB rules.

As far as I am concerned freedom of speech and the right to reply on this board is why I post. I will uphold the rules of the board and if anyone thinks that I am breaking the rules then after consultation with Izzet then I will relinquish my role as mod.

I will not modify my behaviour on this board and unfortunately people will have to accept me as I am.

Enjoy your evening

Thats my point. You are always stepping in to argue. Read the numerous forums available on the web. That way you might be able to do your job adequately. But somehow I doubt it. You are too busy trying to prove yourself and how much wiser you are than the rest of us.

I started this topic merely as a way of pointing out what could happen and exactly what I was pointing out IS what is happening, Anyone charged with a position as a monitor should be above reproach and should be open enough to put their name to any monitored posts, look at the add on to the original post, as others have said it stinks of dictatorship,



moderators do not need to explain their actions, do not complain about this



Oh yes we will

Nobody ''wrote'' it - the words are a direct copy of the forum rules, issued by Izzet, who is the person you should be directing your comments to - off board, as it says in the rules.

I cant believe the energy and time wasted on this thread.

If you are going to be a legit poster, then why are you so worried about being moderated.

Stick to the rules and topics. 103 postings regarding who or what the moderators should or should not be doing.

What a waste of energy.

Can we please move on, if you have an issue with one of your postings being edited or deleted then you can address it.

In the meantime give them a chance and move on to subjects that people will be interested in reading.

It is also no ones business what Izzet is earning, what does that have to do with anything? you are free to post or not or move on. Nosy busy bodies.

I will not be reading any more posts on this thread so if anyone wishes to respond it will fall on deaf ears.
