I'm interested in how people feel about the new moderation system and policy. So I'm going to try to pull a Skutsch and post my first poll ever.

Poll
1. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being worst and 10 being best, how would you rate the new moderation system and policy?

I must be too moderate, as I was unaware of the previous moderation policy nor any changes to it.

There is one? I mean there must be one, but I've never ran into trouble with a mod. I guess I am a good person in general. whistle

I always thought I was a good person. My family always tells me I am. I went my whole life without being moderated. Then I got moderated 3 times in the last few months. I feel like my life has been a lie.

It would be helpful to post the changes or link to where they are stated or discussed. But I have noticed posts being deleted recently - including a pretty harmless meme from me. To make things worse, the deletions seem to target much more often posts that disagree with certain political views.

The best new moderation policy is listed in Section 8, paragraph 12, subsection 31...

Any board member who presents a frivolous poll without providing sufficient link(s) for responding board members to make an informed and knowledgeable vote on the matter at hand may be subject to moderator review and if found guilty of said offense shall be subject to discipline commensurate with the board member’s past moderation history which may be mitigated by their record of prior annual financial contributions to this site, if applicable.

Oh yeah, I kept getting warned and having my posts deleted about some crazy guy who was spouting about these epic games he was making with his workforce of androids or something. He was soliciting artists on here and duping them into thinking they had found work. He's currently on Kickstarter defrauding people there with his fiction.

But apparently I was the threat to the gaming community and needed to be moderated...

I don't know that it is stated anywhere. But there's been a definite change. Some threads have dozens of deleted posts, where before there was a much smaller number of hidden posts.

In that case, at least you should make it clear, in your original post, what you are talking about. Even having noticed the change, I hadn't answered the pool because I wasn't sure if that was what you meant. Others may have not noticed anything.

A change in the number of posts affected by the rules does not mean there's been a change in the rules.

I figured I would post it at night so it could play in the sun for a while before it was banished to the basement. That metaphor didn't quite work.

Shoot, when I flagged it Wrong Forum, I assumed you didn't already know there was a better forum for it.

Oh, I can't see at all why you were moderated in the past. Must be their problem.

And this is from a Jedi Master of Moderated.

I smell some accessories for shoes, here. Pattern indicates either argyle or knee-high.

Wargamer - Check.

Post exodus - Check.

You think that post should be moderated? Why? A feeble attempt at humor that references a classic Twilight Zone episode? Seriously, I've read the community rules, which I agree with completely, and I don't think that post violates them. But you may be right, so I'm going to take preemptive action and delete it. It wasn't that funny anyway.

That's not what he's saying. You said you posted it at night in the hopes that it would take longer for the mods to move it; he's saying, people who make work for the mods tend to get their wish.

I appreciate that moderators have been much more proactive in moderating posts targeting women or minorities (mansplaining thread) making BGG much more inviting to such groups.

The new tools are great - you don't need to lock threads to keep them from being derailed or move them to RSP for being derailed.

I don't see change in the policy itself, the tools are just better and their effect visible.

Indulgences have returned.

Time for a reformation?

Good grief, people, it was a joke.

The actual text of section 8, paragraph 12, subsection 31 is "will be mitigated."
