Another fix is to not let a "new" member have access to the shout box or be permitted to make threads until they have posted 25 posts.

I have seen that too and it cuts down troll activity.

It's not that hard to put some controls in place.

It's a message forum, not Fort Knox.

Just my $.02.

Regarding the first suggestion, that is now the way it works (since and because of the incidents that are being discussed).

I like the shoutbox suggestion (yay! more sleep for me!). I'll raise it as a formal request. Thanks.

RE: I am only slightly appalled that the admins have said nothing still, I'm done waiting
As for the mods, they have a hard job at times. That said, moms is not only an amazing mod but an outstanding human being. I mean this, and Tarty was helpful as well. Others have been too but these two, I've talked to a bit more.

I also learned that I have a lot of work to do on myself. Sad I'm embarrassed and it's hard to put into words how I feel right now.

But the mods are good people and I hope they know they are valued. Heart

I just want to add that I think the admins are good people too. They just make for terrible admins and they need to step down.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

It's sad I don't know who everyone is, as it relates to the colors of their names. Lol I thought Tarty was a mod before he was one and asked him for help. Blush

He's a Senior mod.

Vosur and I are Trainee mods.

If you stare at your screen, very close up, for about an hour, you'll see that Tarty has a slightly different shade of pink.

So is the resignation of aurora and DL being discussed or what?
I've also seen both of them on now too. DL is on right now.

I wanna know, from an admin (not a sm, not a mod), that this is being taken seriously or whether we should try our luck going above their heads to Seth.
