A couple of members have a problem with the site, some of their points go into deleting/moving posts, Sigs being too big and moderators having special sigs with moderator with their name on, so please vote if you would consider this a problem or not.

I've not been on enough to see any of the events with regards to post moderating, but I've tried to add my 2p on Vics thread. With regards to signatures, they seem pretty much OK to me!

Maybe its worth putting up a rule about the size / content of the sigs - so everyone knows what is and is not acceptable?

Other places limit theirs to about 80p-100x high or 3-4 lines of text to ensure the signatures dont take over the threads from the posting and allows the old 56k users to be able to download the pages quicker? They also insist that items not be placed in there as 'free advertising' without authorisation first, or to use words otherwise block by filters that could be offensive to others.

Common sence should prevail when people make their own signatures, and usually does. Many people are usually happy to comply with keeping them apropriate, so long as they know what to comply with first.

I reckon that just by doing this poll, the site managers have proved that they are looking at ways to make the forum as good as possible. I`m sure we are all in agreement with that way of thinking.

A lot of the problems seemed to have arisen through the admin not being very experienced in running the show, but that will come with time. Some site members have been a bit less tolerant than they could have been and perhaps should have directed their gripes to the people concerned privately instead of airing their views to everyone, but it won`t hurt once in a while to let people know their concerns via threads like this one.

I figure that the advice that rich_b gave in the "Vic's say!!!" thread just about sums up what needs to be done here, especially about when people get posts edited, saying that explanations should be given etc.

A set of rules isn`t a bad thing to have, but these have to be thought out pretty carefully. You can easily have rules and still not be thought of as being draconian, just as long as your careful about how you use them.

Cheers. Ewan.

I forgot to mention in my post that I'm not saying that any of the things I mentioned aren't being done, or trying to say how it should be done - how this site is run is totally up to the new owners. I was just listing what I have found to work on forums in the past in the hope that some ideas might be helpful. I hope it's taken in the spirit it was meant! :smile:
