    I am not sure what we are complaining about here, did we not ask for stricter moderation sometime back ? I think that's when GF became moderator and he seemed to be doing exactly what we asked for.

    In this thread GIMH and Matteh both were defending GingerFurball and his action against HB and his inability to act against Burgey for a personal rant.
    GIMH also defended him for banning Satyam ,just because he disagreed with general opinion.

    Quoting James post in that thread before it was closed-


    If a thread goes so over-board and personal insults start as what happened with that thread, then there's only one way the thread is going to go, and that's into closed-ville.

    Anyone is entitled to their opinion on a topic, butit's up to the moderators to decide whether it's breaking forum rules or not. It isn't up to member(s) to decide what is right or wrong for the forum and for them to disagree with the decision publicly and take matters into their own hands.

    Thread Closed and Merged with the original.
    And now because he was banned they have got a axe to grind and has turned around.
    As they say what goes around,comes around (or something like that)

    Have to say I'm not surprised GF has taken a view on being a mod. As Sanz says my recollection is that when we had this discussion a while back the consensus was that stricter moderation was what was required, so it seems a bit rich to moan about it and particularly to single out GF

    I may be wrong here but I'm assuming the mods act on the basis of some sort of collective responsibility rather than individually - it does seem a bit odd to me then that they do the modding on their individual accounts rather than some generic shared identity - the impression I get, and I might be completely wrong in this as I don't visit all of the forums, is that most of the active modding is done by a few of the newer mods - poor old GF in particular seems to have put hours and hours into it and anyone who does that voluntarily for such a thankless task gets my respect - heck on occasion he's even admitted to be being wrong - I do hope he carries on posting

    On reflection though I have to say I think the stricter moderation, which I did support at the time, was wrong. Comments have been made about the quality of CC being dire and it is. There are a few factors in that some of which are cyclical but SJS leaving is a big one - essentially it was the new moderating standards that caused that and his loss was far too high a price

    The bans have gone too far as well - I'm not keen on bans for "conduct" issues at the best of times but when you get GIMH banned for reacting then things have gone way too far - there have been others, social for one, who's banning I was surprised at. Long standing members have earned the right to be treated differently - I'm not saying that means being able to disregard the rules but bans for established members should be an absolute last resort, imo.

    Multis are different - they should be banned and banned quickly. You get the odd one, like the_sean, which should obviously not be treated as breaking the rules, but generally they're just taking the piss - its unfortunate in some ways as the likes of Precam and Bruce Campbell do/did have something to offer but we're better off without them. As to Sir Alex I'm far from convinced he's Precam - I don't know what standard of proof the mods use for multis, and see no reason why it should be a particularly high one, but after the relative ease with which the other Precams were detected they must surely be pretty confident Sir Alex is Sir Alex and not Precam

    There is a lot of stress on here at the moment which is a great shame - I get stress at home and I come here to get away from that - Mrs Fertang cant help being menopausal, well maybe she can but that's another issue, but some of the folk on here certainly don't need to be as chippy as they are

    Agreed.

    Except for the part about GF'S moderating.

    Yes,he is putting effort in and i appreciate him for that,but his standards are inconsistent at times which often depends on his preferences.
    If he could sort that out,he will be a great mod.

    Major moderation decisions like bans and the likes are always made by the group after discussion, but things like closing threads, deleting posts, warning members etc are done an individual basis - mainly because they are things that really do need immediate action. We can't wait until everyone puts their 2c in over whether to close a thread because sometimes that can take three days. We try to be consistent and we discuss decisions after they're made to ensure some sort of precedent is set, but sometimes it does come down to individual interpretation and sometimes mods disagree. It's something we try to reduce as much as possible but we'd be lying if we said it didn't happen sometimes.

    You know, it's possible for Corrin to agree with GF on one issue and disagree with him on others without being biased. In fact, that's actually a good example of a lack of bias. He's expressing his opinion on different issues irrespective of whether he likes the moderator in question.

    Mods are like Cricket Umpires, they make so many good decisions, but everyone tends to focus on the ones they disagree with. Such a thankless job.

    Cevno, Furball is no longer a moderator.

    I know this is going to be an unpopular sentiment, but I actually believe that Sir Alex does contribute quite a bit of positive stuff to the forum and should be allowed to stay.

    He is obviously very passionate about cricket and does make quite a few interesting observations

    Furthermore, if it wasnt for regular posters like him, there'd have been any number of times when you could've shot a gun around the place and not been in any danger of hitting anyone

    Now I know that he does enjoy the wind up and that can result in a thread going quickly to the dogs but surely that is as much the fault of people like me who are only too happy to indulge him from time to time

    From a personal perspective, I think that posters who take any criticism of their favourite player/team/country/sport etc personally are far more annoying and a much greater blight on the forum.

    Basically, if you not interested in debate then join LemmingsRus and talk to yourself

    And I also find it interesting that there are a some people speaking out here whose only "positive" contribution many threads is the odd one-liner designed to annoy/humiliate somebody

    Guys, it was mildly funny the first time but after 5683 times it's just old

    Anyway, dont have any probs with the mods - thankless and underpaid job that I wouldnt do for quids

    Interesting.

    I definitely think he was consistent in everything he did. The problem people had was that he wasn't always consistent with the other moderators (early on at least - I think it was a stigma that he kept despite changing the way he did things later on). Whether you agree with the way he handled things or not, I definitely don't think it's fair to say he wasn't consistent.

    Have to say I feel exactly the same way, any interesting or funny discussions I've had for months have been outside of CC.

    But I think that has a lot to do with the lack of decent cricket at the moment (damn BCCI!!!). The World T20 subforum was perfectly good, and I can't imagine there'll be any talk of a decline in standards when the Ashes rolls around again. Over the first half of last year we had two of the best test series I've ever seen, between Australia and South Africa, followed by the Ashes in England. It was a great time to be a cricket fan. This year we've had an unbearably uncompetitive Australian summer, Bangladesh and the West Indies getting their arses handed to them repeatedly and a bunch of T20. There's been a distinct lack of good test cricket so far this year- two matches between India and South Africa is about it. I think my absence from CC simply reflects a declining interest in cricket, especially when the World Cup was on. That forum is worse now than it's ever been, certainly in my memory, but when a good test series fiiiinally rolls around (particularly one involving Australia or England) the quality of posting usually recovers.
