You're all aware that currently, the site is admin'd by Saoreire. I don't know what he wrote in his application form, but it must have been pretty good for him to be entrusted adminship of the site.

Now, you may have or may have not noticed, but comment and news moderation has been an utter farce. Comments are deleted for any form of negative comments, and pretty much anything that finds itself into the news inbox is posted on the site, no matter how pointless it is.

I know I'm not the only one here who thinks Saoreire isn't doing a very good job. So, I'm asking for anybody who agrees to call for a new admin to be chosen.

If we want a decent site, we have to work for it.

Well if they got more staff wouldn't be a problem but I know getting trusted staff is hard to get.

Posting a forum thread saying 'Saoreire needs to be replaced' is hardly going to get you any points now, is it? When I was staff on DoWFiles, he was doing a reasonable job, I saw no problem. Comments were deleted when it got to the stage that arguments were arising, or insults were flying, though not for simply negativity, though I would imagine that being for the PoTD's? If so, like they say, if you can't say nothing nice, don't say nothing at all ;) This 'problem' is on most of the FN Sites, in regards to PoTD comments. You do get a fair few people posting with pointless, rude, or negative comments. The point of this is useless, they might as well say nothing. Rate the picture, and be done with it.

Indeed, 'you' the community have to work for it. Saying that the staff are no good is not 'working for it'.

I've e-mailed DoW files several times in the past, and never received a reply. I didn't expect much difference now.

Tycoon;3868296if you can't say nothing nice, don't say nothing at all[/quote]

This is my point. You can't have constructive criticism if you're not allowed to say anything negative about whatever the topic of discussion is. I'm not saying that no comment moderation should take place at all; I sent several e-mails a few admins ago when moderation was non-existant to complain about idiots posting "OMFG THIS MOD/MAP SUCKS" etc. [quote=Tycoon;3868296]Indeed, 'you' the community have to work for it. Saying that the staff are no good is not 'working for it'.

I'm not just saying the staff are not good, I'm calling for them to be replaced, which is action rather than just complaining.

Also..

[quote=Ruley;3868244]oh, so you think you can do better?

Yes, I do.

Meh, usally peoples comments that get deleted reallly do deserve it. thw modrators on dow files had to kinda 'crack down" on the rules since (from what ive seen) people don't want to liston
