What do you all want?

JRoss, that post that was locked was only locked for a short time and the Moderator posted just as it was locked. Yes Admin/Moderators can post on locked threads but if they do not see the top post we may not know its locked because we will still see the "Write your reply...." block below.

You may see a 'New' post show up briefly and then its gone. There was one earler by a new member that was spamming. Darus quoted the Spammer post with "There may be a SPAMMER behind that pretty face"...... That new member was banned and all posts removed except Darus's quote so it too was deleted to remove the SPAM link in the quoted post. This will happen.

Double check the time stamp of those 2 posts, it appears to have been locked about 8:55pm and the next post was at 5:49am. It was 9 hours between the lock post to the mod post. It was still locked when I viewed both posts. I don't know when it was unlocked/released from being locked. Not that I cared to post the the thread, and frankly agreed with it being locked at that point, but the principle that once locked, no one should be posting to the thread. Just bad form in my opinion. Also found and reported what looked like some bot posts about the same time.

PS, there's some janky ad popping up on my phone's chrome browser when viewing the forums...something about congrats you made the 1 trillionth google search garbage nonsense.

Ad bots are rampant on most forums. Ad's are how the forum owners get paid on a FREE forum. You can add a Blocker to most browsers including cell phones. I use uBlock for Firefox on both.

Again the moderator may not have seen that the post was locked. For any admin staff we do not see the "CLOSED TO POSTS' that non-admin see.

I am sorry if that's a problem. Its a thing that does not happen too often.

We got together and kicked his wife and kissed his dog.

still waiting for clarification on choices 2 and 3? Pretty much reads as the same thing except for some murky wordage difference

If I change the verbage to suit 1 then all the votes are null in value.

K.I.S.S*

If you feel so strong, please don't vote.

The only thing I can do is double every question so some can cast two votes for the exact same question. Like so above.

Just so if you want to vote for the same Poll Question above I doubled the same poll questions.

You can change your vote. You can vote only 2 questions.

I think it's pretty moot.

Judging by responses it looks like folks don't mind a lot of it, but a little is OK.
People pushing obviously unsupported conspiracy stuff really should work with that elsewhere.
Seems, stunningly I know, that folks in the scoot forum want to discuss scoots. Weird huh?

You get 2 votes.

But the system will only let you vote once for an item.

So I just copied #1 - #5 again. Now you can vote for #1 twice. This gives you sort of 25 options.

Looks like #5 is running at 57.4%.

Choice 1-3 are are conditionally supportive of the poll question and dilutes the appearance of support. As of now with 60 total votes submitted, 33 (55%) are conditionally supportive, and 27 (45%) are against.

Poll is a bit disingenuous with 3 conditionally (yabbit) supportive choices, no, or lets build a dumpster fire.

Interesting how data can be manipulated to support a narrative? Sound familiar?

No, I am not trying to start a purple helmet bumping contest, just an observation.

Good observation. Poll design can be tricky. Poll interpretation can be trickier.

It's measuring two axes; one is yes/no, the other is "if yes, then how heavy-handed should the moderation be?"

Something like....
Yes and no moderation
Yes and some moderation
Yes and moderate with an iron fist!
No. Just no.
No, but if it's allowed, moderate moderately.
No, but if it's allowed, moderate with an iron fist!

On the other hand, should the people who don't want it, be able to decide how it's moderated? They won't be (or at least I'd expect they wouldn't be) participating.

Tough choices.

Or, use your interpretation (again, it's a good one) of comparing "all 'yes' answers" vs. "all 'no' answers". If on balance, the result is "yes", then come back with a second poll asking how much moderator intervention we want.

I don't know enough about FB to be able to say which category that falls into -- but I don't want anything to do with FB in the first place so...

You pretty much better articulated what I tried to say without using many words. 😉

:rolleyes:

  1. You're able to write your own poll. Go for it.
  2. I will not change the wording just to make a couple members more comfy with the wording. The GENERAL idea is there. Accept it as written or don't vote.
  3. Its clear that most understand my substandard Amera-English. Sorry if you do not. See #1 above.
