If I understand the arrangements, Only some ppl can/will see what he (I assume others as well) posts up - due to him adding some members, including myself, as a “foe”...or I think that’s how it works.

It's pretty simple who gets kicked off this forum it's those who disrespect people continuously and for how long will depend on how bad it has been and it will be up to the moderators I presume we as adults don't have to act like pork chops on or off a forum I think we get a good run on here and a lot of very good information has been passed around as for Gaz I think he may have took time out to catch his breath or something lets hope nothing is wrong :thumbsup:

Are you thinking of mediation perhaps?


No though the terms can be interpreted different ways. From wikipedia
"A discussion moderator or debate moderator is a person whose role is to act as a neutral participant in a debate or discussion, holds participants to time limits and tries to keep them from straying off the topic of the questions being raised in the debate. Sometimes moderators may ask questions intended to allow the debate participants to fully develop their argument in order to ensure the debate moves at pace"

Mick, you're putting far too much thought into this mate.

This isn't about bankruptcy, criminal law, or any of the other references your initial post compared to.

It's a forum, we all know what a 'moderator' and 'moderation' mean in that context.

I would say mate that if your the kind that goes years between 'brain fades', you've got nothing to worry about.

We're not looking to leap on people over every small thing, or hold endless grudges, just get rid of the people who continually can't help themselves.

It would be good if the mods can set up something under their profile pic that indicates if they have been sin binned or completely banned that way we know why they are no longer here on the forum.

I think that already shows bigfella...

Well the way i see it is when it says "member deleted" in place of name/avatar, that indicates that particular member has been banned...
:unknown:
Other than that i guess they just leave & we're left broken hearted & wondering why... :violin:
(Or blame me for upsetting them... 8-) )

The caravaners are the worst by far, they are a bunch of opinionated grumpy old bastards!! :lol:




Try a Stock Market forum!. those can get ugly really fast!!
This forum is pretty chilled compared to most. :drinks:

Now you mention that I do remember seeing that :D it would be nice to have something indicating if someone is sin binned for a week or 2 type thing, at least we know they will be back if they so choose to do so.

Wouldn't be a problem with your provider blocking "weapons" content as some of them are prone to?

You'd be the first to mention such a thing. With or without VPN should no make no difference at all.
See you on the firing line.

Sorry I missed this reply.

The criminal references were just to indicate people can make mistakes and have the counter re-set. If they can do that for a jail sentence its strange when talk boards take it more seriously.

As to putting too much thought it into, it was just an old fart warning. I have seen a lot of sites fail from poor moderation over the last 20+ years. I watched hunt america, sword forum, TMHL and cordite go altogether, and every time it was with the best intentions of managment.

I dont think any of it is an issue here, this seems to be a classy establishment to tell the truth. The jackass to knowledge ratio is very low, smart ass one line comments are low, when you ask a question you get answers not an inquisition into why you asked it. :D

Reminds me of cast boolits, accurate reloading, and paco kellys lever guns, three of the best on the net. :thumbsup:

Forgot to address this in my last reply... Regarding the queries about bans, deleted accounts etc.:

As it suggests, posts by "Member-Deleted" are from when an account has actually been removed. This is not a 'ban'. If an account it baned, the author remains visible and posts are still attributed to that account, the account is just no longer usable.

On the subject of missing members and how many have been banned... We haven't banned anyone since the new moderation system came in. We have issued a number of warnings though, and a few people have apparently taken umbrage with receiving one and decided to no longer participate in the forum as a result. So be it.

BFS, for the purposes of saving members from asking questions/waiting for replies from a banned account, some indication of a ban could be useful. I will think on that.
See you on the firing line.
