So much for the vault
« on: May 11, 2018, 7:08 AM »
Well there goes transparency, apparently mods have a secret new power they forgot to disclose, deleting posts as they see fit .  Delete, fine, but I'm a little hurt by the lack of transparency, thought you guys were straight up.

May as well delete the vault.

Wah?
While I understand it means 'with serif', Comic Sans just means 'comic without comedy' to me.

They're about to throw a sh** fit because, what I'm assuming was, a sh**-filled diatribe laced with so much tin-foil hat conspiracy bull**** regurgitated all over it until it was just an ugly mess that someone with the power to do so deleted it out of hand as routine.

I don't mean to sh** on their parade, but uh... things have been getting deleted, and not consistently vaulted since the shakeup a few months back. They only want to get up in arms over some posturing shitposts months after the fact....

Personally, I don't see any point in archiving the exploits of TMC's village idiots.

I'll bring it up in discussion, or hell, let's just use this as the discussion.

It probably is needless, extra work, with no actual measurable benefit.  I was one of the ones suggesting and advocating the vault before I was a mod, basically on the grounds of "vaulting instead of deleting would likely ease some butthurt", but that seems to be the default state for a vocal minority around here anyway, and I don't really see the point in trying to assuage these egos any longer.

Some of tmc's users are striving to get themselves featured in the vault.. I thought it was decided a few months back that it would be far better for the community to outright delete posts that were of a trollish nature?

There was so much back and forth all around, and honestly I think so many people taking contrarian positions just for the sake of being contrarians, that I lost track of if there was actually a consensus on any of that discussion.  It seemed that opening all that up to public discussion just turned into another reason for people to argue and flame each other and most of the useful info that could have been gained from that was lost in the noise... which that fact in of itself was probably the most useful takeaway.

Where I fell with it all was that if we looked at it on a scale of 1-10 where 1 was "I don't care" and 10 was "NO SOUP FOR YOU!", landing around a 6 or 6.5 on how uptight and enforcement heavy things needed to be...  Basically have the stick hanging just low enough to keep some of the problem posters mostly in line, addressing the worst of the nonsense that arises, trying to refocus discussion, trying out the 24 hour cool-off ban seems to be the best way to keep discussion from being stifled but without letting things run crazy out of control.

Just outright deleting the nonsense instead of leaving it somewhere for ego-stroking I think would fall in line with that.  If its worth being moved somewhere else entirely instead of just being locked, it probably is silly not to just delete it.

If this thread is in regards to the 5 new topics made by a totally new user with the subject "What is the best xxx" then those new topics were spam just to up their post count.  Really not sure how we are going to stop new users from doing this so they can vote!!

Any ideas are welcomed!
