Flava: From what I've seen, it's usually the same narrow set of individuals that complain when mods intervene, and they're often people who've been on the wrong side of the mods before. It's not actually a reliable indicator of how the community feels, just how one or two very vocal people feel.

Or maybe introduce an option that allows individual users to "warn" another user...if that user receives something like 10 warns in a day, then they're banned for the day, and perhaps it becomes progressively longer if they keep doing it (like Adam's idea, except users would have the control instead of whining to the admins). I think AIM had something like this way back when, and it still might---I haven't been on it for about five years, so I'm not sure.

It's always possible that it could fall into the wrong hands though, for example, someone could create multiple accounts and bully someone they don't like and get them banned...

Right, but I get the sense that it would be rare for ten people here (since there are really only a handfull of "permanent" members) to gang up on someone without provication. All the regulars here seem pretty reasonable, so I don't forsee people ganging up on someone for no reason. But I do wonder about someone making multiple accounts and misusing the warn feature...perhaps warning would not be anonymous...that way, if people were clearly ganging up everyone would know and they'd be reprimanded.

If being an admin isn't a job, then they have no reason why they shouldn't leave if it's worth complaining about. People at jobs can't just quit, admins can. Fact of the matter is, if something is voluntary, don't complain about how it interferes with your life. Quite simple really.

I said a USER warning system. Of course, half the people here are admins anyway.

There is nothing wrong with the odd fake account or spam post.

Sometimes they can even be funny.

I'd say that people should shut up and not start complaining when an admin deletes something so they could continue their good work. That would fix many problems

Also, I think ignorance system would be TERRIBLE idea. When looking to what it does for example in IRC, it would just create more chaos. Like mr.X ignoring mr.Y when mr.Y tries to apologise something he/she has done to mr.X.

 
No sig for you.
