Nice move by the mods...
I see this thread was moved to ensure it doesn't get the attention it deserves, couldn't the move have been made after activity on the thread died down?
On a second note, why was this thread moved here? In order to have less users see it and contribute to it, right? Because, the NT traffic cannot possibly compare with Suggestions section. I would like to thank the Moderator team for this big helping hand once again. I know that the thread titles suggests it be moved here, but this is an important debate that needs to be seen by all.
this thread is about rule changes in this site and rightfully belongs to Suggestions/Feedback section. The mods did exactly the right thing and what happened? Posters claiming they only want to improve the forum complain only because they felt it's an important debate so the mods should bent the rules and keep this in forums which have more traffic.
A more positive way may be to encourage other posters to make their opinion here/keep this thread active, ask admin if they are willing to put an announcement about the discussion of rule changes.
This forum have posters from all over the world with different backgrounds, from different cultures and at various ages. It is extremely hard to moderate and please every posters.
As for permaban or not. How long is the banning period, etc. I haven't made up my mind
And I am not sure this is the best time to debate.
My suggestion is every year moderators set up a period of time for debate on rule changes. Over the year, posters may make suggestions about rule changes.
