my bad. 2008 Seven years. I still don't know what the OP is going on about.

EDIT

In point of fact the OP has been non-specific to the point of being downright coy. What are these problems. Lay some charges with evidence or stop with the sly innuendo and vague accusations.


Really though, you can't do that, the mods will get really upset and ban you for it.

I don't know how much my opinion would be appreciated since I'm more a lurker, but as far as I have seen, the mods here are no as strict. Yeah, they are more strict than in other places of the Internet, but honestly that is not setting the bar high. I can't say if they are biased or unfair, but generally the users I have seen banned were often breaking the rules.

So, without showing any concrete evidence or example, to me it seems some users are mad because the mods are actually doing their job. Maybe it's not the case, but certainly it looks that way. Furthermore, I have seen in other forums some users that clearly broke the rules complain about have been unfairly banned. So, I would not be surprised if that were the case for some users here.

I'm not sure what is and what isn't considered strict, but I've seen that some of the more active/popular people are gone. And all I wonder is what they did and when they're coming back lol

I can't claim that I pay enough attention to every thread to know if particular threads were deleted.

I do see that there is a lot of vagueness in the site rules. This is a social area so it's tough to make concrete laws, but I think the areas some people have the most trouble with is this:

Keep in mind that context is relevant. There may be times when a remark or image is acceptable as part of one conversation, but would be inappropriate in another. Sometimes one or two remarks or images of a certain sort will be taken as fun, but a glut of such posts/comments may create an uncomfortable atmosphere for others. Use your best judgment, but understand that mods will also be using their best judgment (which might not always agree with yours) and may take appropriate action at their discretion.

3) Be respectful of other users and assume goodwill. Don't insult other users; don't troll, don't flame, don't offer up flamebait.


Because written communication is often stripped of any emotion, it's extraordinarily easy to get caught on problems with context and intent.

100% I support holding moderators to a consistent standard of conduct.

I'm somewhat sorry to use this, but the OP is giving perfect examples. Even if I assume good will and level-headedness is behind the OP's posts here, I am hard pressed to see anything other than generalizations, statements that can be seen as broad nonspecific insults to the staff and users that don't agree with the OP, and an apparent confrontational attitude by short quoted replies. When elaboration is asked for, it is dismissed.

I would certainly not call this "trolling" or "flamebaiting." But on the terms of insulting other users and creating uncomfortable atmospheres this is brushing right up against the envelope.

It is unfortunate that some users feel wronged. But do try to consider what you write from the reader's perspective.

I don't know much since I wasn't involved in the forums until pretty recently, but I have been told by quite a few people that it is worse now since everyone gets super offended when people disagree with their opinion.

How is instant messaging people from a private server going to do anything? Maybe you should start a cr group about this instead and take screen shots for all users to see.

I've never really faced anything with the Mods. I've had some trouble in the past (with my very OLD account which I wish I could get into;;; } helped me out. Sometimes there were harassment and bullying in the threats and other users.

If you are nice and respect other people's opinions, which I know every site has a hard time doing; then there would be no problems. Its hard being an admin because you have to keep everything in check and hope nothing bad happens in a site. Give them a little break.

Sometimes I see users with "banned" above them and think, "I wonder why they were banned"
Other times, I think, "OK, I know why they were banned."
I figure, just because I didn't see the infraction, doesn't mean it's not there.
All I've really noticed: trolls/flamebaiters banned.
I think I have been fairly active for awhile now. Opinionated, and even cussing when I feel like it. The only interactions I can recall having had with mods has been when I created topics in the wrong section. Not unfair, nor were the mods impolite.

I've got to say I've gotten my Comments removed because apparently I was giving false information. Apparently the mods preferred my rival in this argument :3 But they'll rue the day they decided to think my information was false and invalid!

I've had some pretty stupid threads on this forum.

Not once did I get a warning from a Mod, or any sign of a ban. I'm within the guidelines, but I guess I got "lucky".

I'm never asking for a warning, but it really does make me wonder what some users actually do to get banned.

Majority of the time it's breaking rule #3. Often times as simple as one user disrespecting/insulting another.

I highly doubt that people are being banned just because of different opinions/disagreements to topics etc. It's not that uncommon for a person to twist stories around and over exaggerate it the way they want it sound like. I used to be a mod for a different site, and I saw this happen everyday. Not surprising anymore, even for a different site.

Anyways, if you were to leave Crunchyroll because of staff/community, you're being silly. CR is mainly focused around watching anime, & reading manga. If you don't like the community, go onto another site and socialize there.

Could you elaborate.?The only time that happened to me was when somebody else on the same thread became overtly offensive two comments below mine and they had to erase some to remedy the situation.
