Hey I pm'ed a mod and he simply said 'pass it on to Simpen' (which I didn't, oops!). So I'd suggest if anyone has problems to go straight to him? Note: Question Mark... As other mods seem to not know what to do with some information, especially when pertaining to fellow administrators/mods you can't PM or on calls mods made they don't know about, rules and internal forum issue politics etc (gay but true). But then you're leaving it to one person, who you may not agree with--and then it's a dictatorship, I own all the shizz arguement which leads to ragequit forums, delete account
Unfortunately you find it on a few too many forums though mate. +1 for speaking up, everyone's entitled, but -1 for it put in the wrong place.
(To both jsummers and Snakedoc). The only thing that I would add from past experience, and being a mod on other forums myself is expect a bit of cocky backlash, you're talking about totally different cultures and personalities which class (my personal experience is with eurofag/cocky attitude), ways of dealing with 'problems', and some mods think too much of themself and do not word things in a fashion appropriate to our perception as users. For example fatasy to one mod may mean pictures of cool gear to another...
Closing it by saying X may mean "Fuck you stupid asshole, thread closed" to our perception.
Fortunately on forums I mod, I'm very diplomatic... doesn't help with an Aussie laid back attitude hahaha.
You get mods explain an infarction or punishment without a reason--or an explaination, or at least a why (in a nice manner), simply put... it solves a lot of issues; both in your face issues and in the background issues. And by the way
Used rifles. Cheap and you can find really good ones. For example: http://www.usedguns.com.au/used_rifles_7mm.html
. Some people buy them and shoot a few rounds, hardly ever used. It's the way to go! Scopes, everything. Sure you could knock them down too!
