Could be someone must have thought 7 overturned reds out of 203 issued was really too much of a riot I guess.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Perhaps it would be better if those responsible for the change gave their reasons.
That would be more useful than any guesswork on my part.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Hello.

The reason I was given about the new appeal rule is because of the new ammount of mods in MTF in the last months.
I have my personal opinion on the rule, I'm not totally confortable with it and I have no problem on saying it. But rules are rules and I fly on their radar, even if I don't like the new rules, it's my job.
But i'm not ok with it. I gave my opinion to the mod team about the new rule and I'd be the first one to vote against it.

Second, I'd have no problems on giving stats about the appeal processes, but, I'd prefer not to. I think it's a personal thing, and all the users who appealed had recieved their feedback from me, to the appeal, and the situation.
But, if the majority of the people prefer to know those numbers, I'd have no problem at all in creating a thread like the one Goldenoldie had.

Sonja gave a right number, 1/3 of the appeals had been successful, if we consider only those who were considered and supported by me, the number is a little bigger.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

I'm not even a moderator but I can tell that would be a pain, and double the time it takes to deal with every single complaint.

Can't you just assume it's dealt with? And if it's not, maybe it didn't warrant any action.

I don't think you need to know about infractions of other posters - that could just make posters target other posters they might want gone who might have racked up a few. It would definitely happen. I would have contemplated it

Yeah the explanation given by Motoflou was good enough, and I understand the reasoning .

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Sorry, I just saw it and quoted it - didn't look for a reply. Silly enough as that sounds.

Please do so.
The last time I made a suggestion in this thread, I wasn't informed about the decision.

The mods talked about it, and we decided it would be best to leave it to Viruzzz, since he's the appeal mod. He replied a few posts ago- Ask MTF Mods

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Why doesn't the site upgrade to the latest version of vbulletin ?

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Why doesn't the site admin doesn't do anything for this problem?

They aren't online that much like us. It doesn't mean that they ignore it.

Never ever give up

A valid one?

What do you want us to do? The site admin responded to you in that other thread, asked to be kept up to date, and said he'd have a tech guy look at it. It's only been a few days, I'm sure it's being looked into. I don't think it's time to start hassling the site admin about it again.
