Dear moderator...

How many moderators are there? Do you guys read every thread and post? I have noticed that you guys keep a good eye out for a thread that gets a little too political or off color and thanks for that. Seems that it could be a thankless job sometimes so thanks for what you do so that we can enjoy the fruits of your labor. PS: there probably be alot of political commentary over the next year, so please be patient. We have to disagree about something, might as well be the government!

Let me answer this for you"

Political rants can get downright nasty; take them somewhere else, no room here for all the name calling that will come with these types of discussions.

I think between all members of the staff we probably read the vast majority of posts but rely heavily on members to keep the forum largely self-policing via coaching and the "Report Post" feature.

We realize that with the election coming up the tendency will be for the number of political posts to increase but Melvonnar is right... this forum is not the place for them. I'm afraid we won't be very patient with them and ask all members to refrain from political posts and replies. We will be moving quickly to remove them as we see them. We have found that if we allow political discussion to continue it inevitably leads to someone crossing the line. If the offending post is from the "red team" and we delete it we are perceived as being in favor of the "blue team" and vice versa so please help us keep this the best RV FORUM on the web.

Thanks,

Rick

From our rules;

Quote:
Discussions of politics and religion are not allowed at iRV2.
We respectfully expect our members to abide by the rules, and since we are a RV forum, political discussions are not appropriate.

Being a mod is a bit of a thankless job, I agree. It's wonderful that these few volunteer their time and talent to help out. As you have pointed out, the board would likely be a lot les friendly if not for their efforts. Members can help by clicking the report post button when they see trouble.

This alerts moderators to a possible problem and is a tremedous time saver.

To all moderators, . . . THANK YOU!! for all your hard work. I have seen much of the work you folks do. You really do react quickly to inappropriate posts. I have also seen wise judgment by sending a little reminder to watch getting too close to the edge of a touchy subject. A little warning on a couple of threads i have seen and they straighten right out and move on to a more approbate subject. Really didn't mean to get into all that, I just didn't want this to be too much of a thankless job. so Thanks again, to all moderators for all your help to keep this the best website on the net.

As a past Moderator and Administrator, I can say the members help a lot on policing post. If you notice the red triangle with ! in it, to the lower left of each posters screen name, you can click there and send the moderators a message about any post that you may question.

Also, from past history, any political post or religious post will eventually turn bad. Some that are border line may be allowed to run and see how they go. Often a Moderator will step in with a warning to the posters in hopes of keeping things from going south.

The Moderators walk a thin line and often participate in the post, then they should not Moderate there, but other Moderators can step in.

Enjoy the best RV forum on the Internet.

Ken

Now if someone would just come up with an answer to the back button problem

You are right about politics and religion being a touchy subject. The only thing more dangerous is college football or ask what's the best RV. Thanks again moderators. I use the irv app so I miss some of the features on the full web site. I need to check out the full site but since DW got an iPad, I just never turn the desktop on unless I have too.

We do have a great mod team here, and thanks for your time.

I was a mod on camaros,net for many many years (I quit after they sold out to autoforums and went commercial) and it is quite a job with nothing (tangible) in return.
