Title: Moderator Guidelines
Post by: Arithon on October 29, 2003, 07:34:18 AM
Courtesy of Tazdev.........comments extremely welcome.

MESSAGE EDITING:
NEVER edit a message to change its meaning. NEVER edit a message to correct spelling, grammar etc. (some people get offended by this).

Along with any message that gets edited a PM should be sent to that member detailing what has been changed and why.

If a thread has to be tidied up to rid it of nasty posts, first make a copy of it in the moderators section with a reason saying why so that we have a copy of the earlier behaviour before deleting posts from it for the publics benefit.

WARNINGS:
If you see something that you don’t like happening (flaming, racism etc.) PM the person responsible requesting that they change their behaviour. Make sure you make it clear that you are a moderator.

The more communication between moderators and members (be it through PM, ICQ, AIM etc.) the better off things will be. There is nothing that annoys people more than not being given a reason for the moderation.

MOVING MESSAGES:
NO threads or posts are to be deleted! They are to be moved into the moderators section with a post saying why.

Any time a thread or post is moved a PM must be sent to the person responsible for the thread / post in the first place advising them that it has been moved and the reason why.

Possible reasons:
- Illegal activity

- Anything in breach of club code of conduct (http://www.skylinesdownunder.co.nz/mod.php?mod=userpage&op=Print)

- Anything that goes against the terms and conditions of the forums. (http://forums.skylinesdownunder.co.nz/terms.html)

At the end of the day, if you are unsure of something either put a post up in the moderators section or send an email to Arithon (Jon) jonw@olympic.co.nz. He is on that email address all day during the week so a reply / action is usually prompt.

Any comments / additions that people would like it make, add here to this thread so they can be discussed and implemented as required.

there are other guidelines (mainly pretaining to the forsale section) but I couldn't find them in my search. If one of the For Sale section mods would like to add them feel free.

Seems to take a long time to edit threads and PM people....

Timesaving tips:

After copying the thread here, in the thread down the bottom of the screen where there is a dropdown box for Admin options, choose Delete Thread / posts. In the next screen rather than clicking on 'Delete thread' button there is a small text link underneath 'Click here to selectively delete posts within this thread.' That opens the thread with delete yes / no radio buttons next to each post, so you can delete multiple posts in one go.

I'm almost tempted to set up a form PM to send to moderated posters.

Team,  in the stuff to discuss etc,  we probably need to retouch on our Moderator base to make sure we have a keen bunch.  Do we need to re-touch on any of the moderator guidelines as well?
