Thank you @Charon.

I don't know about the others here keeping us in place, but I know that Charon carries a whip and is not afraid to use it. I know because I bare the scars of my many mistakes LOL. Sometimes I make mistakes and break a rule or two when trying to help those in need of info. I can sometimes get a little carried away without meaning to. So, I get a crack of that whip and I'm sent to the corner for my time out. But, if I deserve it, it's to the corner I will go.

All of you, Charon, Admin, and mods are doing a great job and it makes all of us feel safer than any other forum I've ever visited. I'm glad to see this forum grow and become the place to be.

BTW, the members are not too bad either LOL.

That noisy Cricket is seldom silent...just kidding Cricket, it's not your fault your kind demeanor leads to overzealous helping of others in a comprehensive manner. It's a fine attribute to possess.

Keep up the good work Cricket, just keep certain things close to your chest and You'll be sweet mate.

Take care,

Thank you Breacher. I will try very hard from now on to not spill too many beans.

Have a good one my friend. Smile

So everything seems fair to me but also very necessary to keep this place as awesome as it is and a cut above the rest. Charon, Admin of Steel and the other Mods have done an amazing job to get us to this point and the future looks bright.

Cheers,

Breacher

I wouldn't say it is excessively strict, or strict at all. Most places have rules, don't they? And I think Charon is quite lovely. She took the time to explain her intentions. She didn't have a "forum-temper-tantrum". I think she is right. I know that I was hesitant at first. I've been in 3 of these forums. Had my acct revoked and my ip blocked from the .com prior to this, then reinstated with an explanation. An oopsy - no harm; no foul. And then another .com Dunno if they're the same (though from the vend0rs and codes, I would say so.) 

@Breacher: I wish you would have answered MY question about the post count thing ... Instead, the person who answered, came across to me, as a little bit annoyed. O.o Hmmk!

I agree; the mods and admin have done an awesome job with keeping this place clean. :thumbsup:

So, if you are new, if you have a bad day, I shall edit out country of origin if you include it by mistake.  And, save your post count.

Members of this thread, I am afraid a few of u r scared off.

If you are discussing the comms (communications with a vendor,) or the quality of a product u received, (admin of steel said: u don't have to post what u receive,) please do so.

I won't ban u for that. I shall edit, or leave it be.

We are losing members I feel because of strictness.

We are losing our family values.

I, for one, want to be able to say Hello to barq in the thread he posts in the most.  Hello to Dusko in hers.

And, hear Snappy's opinion. And, like many of you, I love to see you give high praise to our vendors such as Dusko.  Top ten.  ppe2u.  Macro Mass.  SS4u.

Ok?

But, for topics totally off the wall, or comparing two vendors etc, please use the special area our Moderator Athena created.

Now, don't go bananas on me.  No jabberwocky in vendor threads.  Many want to jump on, get the info and jump off.  But, now, with new posting mandates, people will post:  Dusko is the best.  Its standard practice.

It allows the vendor to interact well with the client.

Deal? Let us be family again. And, feel comfortable. And, see how it goes.
Thanks for the post Charon.  I have a question.  I am currently using a computer at the library and don't always have the privacy to log on here

and chat.  Although I'm not scared off, I'm afraid of getting my account deleted because I don't/can't post very often.  Is there any way around

this?  In other words, must a person definitely have 45/50 comments within 30 days?  Thank You.

unfortunately, we don't now have the manpower to keep track of every account.

its a machine that automatically edits out ur account.

my co admin of steel will know if there is a way to mark ur account so its not deleted again.

but, i have no help right now. i cannot go through every account. so, we let the machine handle this.

however, ADMIN OF STEEL, IS THERE A WAY TO HIGHLIGHT CERTAIN PERSONS WHOM HAVE SCHOOL OR RESPONSIBILITIES?

(but, in all honesty,50 posts, in 45 days, is not so bad. and thereafter, once a month will keep u a member. can u try teddy? if u get ur first fifty, then most can handle A short post once a month thereafter.)

we have way too many whom come here and don't post.

unless my co admin has some tricks up his sleeve, i am afraid i cannot keep track of all the people I do know.


we shall try our best Teddy. u r a good member.

For the sake of our members getting worried about post count, I have modified the time duration from 45 days to 100 days now. If a member still doesn't post within 100 days then i guess its fair to not have him/her on board.

You are absolutely awesome, admin of steel.

You have the wisdom of Solomon.

And, such compassion.

YO: PEOPLE: IMPORTANT RULE ADJUSTMENT. YOU NOW HAVE 100 DAYS TO GET UR FIRST FIFTY POSTS. cool, huh?

and, we lost those whom spent no time here with our initial purging.

great idea, and, as always, we r both tough but compassionate. We both know how to go with the flow, mr. admin.

really nice.
