Re: Is there Corruption in this base? What do you think?
The problem with most people is that they are blind to their own errors.
80% of the time when you hand out an infraction as a mod, all you get is 50 PMs with complaints about it. People forget that mods are here to make sure that the rules and standards of this forum are maintained. Even if in their own opinion, they didn't break a rule, mods can see that differently. The biggest problem with this is that so many members think that mods target them on purpose, only infract them, only punish them, and what not.
First of all, constantly going in against a warning/infraction doesn't give put you in a good book with anyone. I'm definitely not saying everyone should suck up, because sucking up won't help either. I'm just saying, if several mods start to infracts you for the same reason, you might want to go out and figure that your own reasoning is flawed, not the mods their reasoning.
Secondly; most people tend to forget that this is the internet. Things may seem contextual, but because it's the internet, and you have trolls and what not scattered all around the place, it's almost impossible to make contextual terms or situational remarks about something, unless you're very clear about it. This being said, they might get infracted for something that is completely out of line according to them, but in reality isn't so weird if you think about it that way. We try to minimize this and think contextual as people do, but it's not always a given.
Finally I would just like to clear out that, given what I said beforehand, I without a doubt can say that none of our moderators are corrupt in anyway. I think the problem is that people need to go and look out of the box before a second, before they actually start judging us, because our work is way bigger than just going around infracting people and banning them. Also, just to say so, the blue name-tag and bigger signature isn't really that much of a reward for all the work we put into it, because we don't do this for a reward, we do this to make a forum we like a better place.
