yeah, you can make it so we can see the results until the end

i think it's to prevent getting people like me all flustered over the standings, and then trying to skew the poll results

which brings up a question—if an alt votes, can the mods see that?

I guess, then they can just match IPs.

I'll be going through the database once the poll is complete and check votes against the logged user id. Alts will be thrown out.

I don't want to derail this much further regarding the thing on the front page but it should at least be clear.

Shock horror, the mods aren't glued to the forum 24/7. I was playing Battlefield with Tru and Gasai iirc. Being told in cryptic messages that there is someone causing trouble on the flood is the equivalent of having lassie bark at you. Unless you are either psychic or reading from a script, how are you meant to know that little jimmy fell down the well or that the account that showed no signs of being an alt, on a VPN or anything whatsoever earlier was actually dustin.

'Tell me the name'
'Look at the flood'

Ahh how very helpful, I'm totally not driving a tank through jihadi alley whilst checking skype at the same time here. I'll just open random threads until one of them stands out at me as being haram.
The report option? Unused.
A series of unhelpful messages on skype in which you eventually just linked the thread? Used.

If you'd have simply reported the thread, or linked it to me in the first place then this wouldn't even be a topic of discussion.

In short, do things properly or don't complain that it took a whole five minutes longer than usual for it to be dealt with.

Seems you do need to be attached to the computer to read properly: "The mods need to be a bit more ready to act as well. And I don't mean 'attentive' ".

 Even after you saw it and started looking into it, it took almost 10 minutes to lock a thread.

Maybe I've just read the rules wrong and paid attention to the wrong things, but I was under the assumption that "calling out" threads got locked?

It took two minutes after I was in the thread, I 'saw' what tru was telling me over the mic about what you were saying in the chat. None of that was useful information for pinning anything down in a speedy manner.

We aren't the bloody Sibyl system, we don't have omniscient omnipresence. In the same way that you call the police to report a crime, you send a report to report a thread/post that breaks the rules. Playing twenty questions with the local bobby and expecting him to know whodunnit, where and when instantly is a completely unrealistic expectation of the way things work.

Again, if you had reported it properly it would have taken a fraction of the time that it did even if I was on Battlefield. Most likely because one of the other members of staff who were online at the time would have seen it before I did.

I'm going to point out that the thread title "I just wanted to say" doesn't scream "THIS IS A CALL OUT THREAD".

No one was, only after it was brought to your attention and presumably mentioned in the Skype Modchat did any other mods come online.

I'll respond to the rest privately, like I pointed out on the first page, this is probably better off in the feedback thread and is taking up too much space here.

Replied there because yeah, this is best back on topic and deal with this privately <.<

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.

Verb is right though, there's like what? 4 maybe 5 people on this forum that even care much about this shit.


So this is kind of funny.

I wouldn't say that considering there are still votes trickling in. The point is that not everybody votes right away.
