    Question Mod's without Humor

    not to be confused with Men Without Hats!

    Serious question - What was so bad about the Bruce VandeVelde thread that a certain moderator determined it should be "locked"?

    The thread originator seriously wanted to know what had become of BVD and there was actually a little debate about the pro's and con's of his tenure. There was a little rancor in the thread as well, but nothing that doesn't go on in probably 25% of the threads on this site (and 100% of threads with mention of Dan McCarney).

    What criteria does a moderator use when determining whether or not a thread should be locked?

    I for one thought it was a legitimate topic! Can you unlock it?

    P.S. I love the site!

    I've been to a few message boards in my day and I gotta say the Mods here are increditibly nice compared to other sites IMO.

    I agree completely with iccyfan. Everyone just needs to relax a little bit. I enjoyed the BVD thread.

    Re: Mod's without Humor

    I have humor!! Just look:

    Two guys walk into a bar. The third one ducks.

    -----

    Seriously, though... I understand frustration, as everyone has different ideas of what is acceptable and what isn't, as far as posts go. I am personally really liberal about letting threads go, but I think that it's all a really big balancing act. One thing that we DO ask is that people let us know if something offends them. We have people under 18 visiting the site, so we want to make sure not to let anything offend anyone.

    Most of the people that run this site understand it for what it is (yes Jeremy I AM talking about you), a forum for people to get into and discuss/argue all things Iowa State. I believe that it was designed to be a free flowing discussion, and as long as noone is attacked on a personal level, then anything should be fair game.

    The problem is that there are SOME, I REPEAT SOME, moderators who consider themselves the perfect fan, and all should aspire to be like them, and root for Iowa State in their perfect way. When there are people of dissenting opinions on board, and they make their feelings known, it disrupts the moral utopia that some of the these people wish for. You have seen the people on here that try to guide the debate as it happens, we ALL know who they are.

    I love this site as well, Jeremy does a hell of a job, and I like a lot of the people on this site, even the ones that don't agree with me.

    I think everything will cool down IF Dan McCarney ever gets a job. Some of these people need it, because they invested so much in the guy. The problem is that the clock is ticking down. There aren't too many jobs left out there.

    Fine C.John, I'll give it to you. You have humor, BUT it could use some improvement .

    What is sad is when people change an innocent post about someone and turn it into a bit*h session. If the topic was on course it probably would continue. Don't complain about the moderators, this site is working fine.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
