Default Question directed towards the mods, admins, and founders

I was wondering how you all felt about all of the threads that have been popping up regarding creating "task forces" of people to police the forum banning people who they feel are being mean and rude. Do you feel unappreciated? Does it seem that people are doubting your abilities to do your job? I was just wondering. I am not trying to be rude or mean. I don't mean to put anyone down and I don't want to be banned. I just wanted to hear from some authority since there are all these threads popping up today.

Most of those threads get deleted because we DO have a staff that can handle WI problems. But also, I'm glad that people want to work to make WI a safe, nice place to be - so the members who start the threads have good intentions.

However, I want EVERY member to be part of the "police" force here on WI. It is the job of every member to flag things that are not right. The staff can't do their jobs without each and every members' help.

And the staff receives so much help and appreciation on a regular basis from great members that we never take the other stuff personally.

I was just wondering how the mods felt about all the threads regarding the fact that soo many members feel that they should take on the job of scolding people whom they feel are being rude. If I were a mod I would be upset because it seems that people are not appreciating them and having faith in their abilities to moderate the forum. That is all.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to respond. I respect the decisions of the mods.

I did (and most people who made these) thjis to HELP out the mods by getting everyone excited about reporter and making WI a better job. We weren't trying to take the mods job! We couldn't even if we wanted too!

We all know and appreciate the wonderful job that the staff does on this forum. Best one that I have ever been on!!

I probably average flagging 4-5 posts each week now -- the bad behavior it is definitely increasing.

Usually, besides clicking the flag on a rude or improper post, I also alert the person and other readers on the thread that something wrong was done and has been reported.

Sadly, it isn't always appreciated. You have to have "thick skin" to take some of the extremely rude posts and PMs that are sometimes returned. But, that is part of being a good citizen of our forum and we should never stop helping the mods do their job.

I for one appreciate our mods and admins very much!! And of course our wonderful founders! I like the system we have. You see someone being rude to you or you see that someone is being ganged up on and you feel that they can't stand up for themselves, then you flag the offender. Then you let the mods handle the situation. Being a good citizen to me is allowing the "authority" to do there jobs and helping them by bringing attention to serious offences but not overstepping and taking on an authoritative role.
