  • Scooterindo

    I've just noticed that scooterindo is banned. I'm curious as to why. Is he ban banned or is it just temporary.
    Would be a shame if it's for good.
    The challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else.

      As far as I can remember, he doesn't have enough infraction points to get permanently banned. Yesterday the forum was down. I guess during the process of tweaking the software, an error has been made resulting in the ban of scooter. I'll pass this on to our admin and so this technical error can be rectified immediately.

      cheers

        Yes, I understand how that goes. I once got erroneously banned because the wrong button was pushed after I reported a questionable post. That was a while back, though, and I have continued to periodically send reports to the mods with no adverse effects. Suggests to me that, barring the occasional technical glick, moderation is improving.

          Travellingchez, thanks for pointing out Scooterindo's ban. It was apparently some technical glitch; I don't know the details but it's been fixed.

          Not too long ago, a moderator on another board I participate in accidentally somehow banned about half of the active posters - hundreds of people! It was a simple mistake and was quickly fixed, but he still gets teased about it.

                  In the interests of transparency: a post upthread challenging a moderator decision from about three and a half months ago has been deleted from this thread. The poster concerned is being contacted. If anyone has concerns or questions, feel free to inquire via PM.

                        An unbiased opinion: I appreciate the candor, but does not it seem a bit oxymoronic to delete a post in the interests of transparency?

                          I think she meant that she was *reporting* the deletion of the post, in the interest of transparency.

                          Well, shock and unshock. Scooterindo banned, not really banned and already unbanned. Having exchanged a couple of friendly PM's with scoots just recently, I'm glad about the happy ending...er, continuance. Guess we all really do live in a yellow submarine, after all. Welcome back Scoots.

                            Yes, I am tuned into the reason for the notice of a deletion, but the irony imbedded in the phraseology was too juicy to be left uncommented upon. No good deed goes unpunished in these parts.
