Hello fellow posters,
While the Editorial Team have been busily working on our Charter, Constitution and the Processes for dealing with issues that arise, those discussions have not been completed.
In the interim and indeed, since the birth of the site, the code of practice to which all posters signed up to on registration has been the backbone of policy here. We are working on further criteria that meet the spirit of Machine Nation.
Meanwhile, however, a poster has raised a point of contention on the Gone Again thread.
It is our intention to fully investigate the issues raised, and the poster concerned has a number of anxieties which we take very seriously. To that end, we've implemented the policies we have been working on.
In order to deal with the issues raised by the poster, we have placed that thread in a holding pen which means that it has been locked and placed out of public view. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to users of that thread.
If you read over the threads here on what our potential moderation policy should be, you'll see that we feel it's important here that we don't have public discussion of grievances. So, while the Editorial Team deals seriously with the complaints raised, we would ask that you not indulge in speculation on the boards. Threads or posts which attempt to do so will be locked and hidden.
If you have comments to make about moderation in general, please take them to the mod threads.
Please send a pm to the Editorial Team if you have any queries or comments. It is possible to send a group message to the Editorial Team and we will all get it. The Team consists of Auditor #9, cactus flower, Evoting Machine, ibis, and Kate P.
We will get back to you when the issues have been resolved, hopefully to the satisfaction of all concerned.
