Forum Moderation - A new post. Old Idea.
I'm on the verge of leaving the website and no longer interacting on here.
I don't know how many people feel similar to me here - But this forum is a wonderful resource for all, so many talented people here, but there a few people who will go out of the way to cause irritation, negative impacts & literally abuse you.
Some people are so tunnel visioned in their way of thinking if you think anyother way to them - they'll call you a dumb idiot for it.
This is NOT what posting on a forum is about. Calling people stupid, or dumb for doing X, Y or Z is not a helpful environment to be in.
When new members join this website and browse the forum and articles (In the last couple of months i've introduced a few people to it) They've all said the same thing "Awesome. The forum is full of people attacking each other however"
I want moderators. People to balance out a conversation and silence a thread if need be. To stop abuse or negative comments.
Feedback is great. Critique is brilliant. Give them, by ALL means. But do NOT call people idiots, dumbasses, stupid etc because they have a different opinion TO YOU.
This has happened so much over the last few months. Things NEED to change.
Please either upvote this or comment on it your thoughts.
There are a few issues yes - Who becomes administrators etc, but that's things we can flesh out in the future.
This is a great forum, let's keep it that way and help silence abuse and attacks on here.
