I can’t log in anymore!
I’ve lost my points!
I’m a moderator of the forums, and recently we’ve had to delete accounts from people who’ve been members for a few years and even accrued over 1000 points.
The broke the forum rules. But what has amazed me is that, as moderators, deleting an account is the last resort, not the first. We try to communicate – sending emails, feedback to posts and rejections of post. As a pre-ultimate resort, we even may deduct forum points! :-O
So, why does this happen?
BECAUSE MODERATOR INSTRUCTIONS ARE IGNORED
PLEASE! If one of your posts is rejected, READ the email. And if you don’t understand why it was rejected – ask! My email is on my business card – it’s easy to find.
PLEASE! Set a watch on any post you respond to and READ all responses. You may find a moderator has tried to give you guidance.
PLEASE! Read the emails on the account you registered with. Moderators are able to send you emails as feedback to what you posted. READ what they’ve said.
I’m a nice guy! I hate requesting users to be deleted!
EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES
Respond to moderator requests and you’ll find that we’re very forgiving. All we want to do is help the community.
