Title: Return to a more strict TOS enforcement?

Would you like to see the TOS more strictly enforced as in the past?

If these means banning anyone who doesn't support C=USA then no, we don't.

I think when we have certain members demanding the banning of someone and then threads appear to see if the site can do it without upsetting the regulars then we have an issue.

It is nice to see how C=USA has managed to rip this site in wto with the help of a few drones.

At least AW.net is keeping their threads to a minimum.

Still, I suppose C=USA and their minions would love to drive away the non-supporters...

Let me put this another way, if Franko goes then I go.

I dunno, would enforcing the TOS really help? Are there rules that would keep people from acting as unpaid shills for one company or another without completely inhibiting discussion of Amiga-related issues? That would keep CUSA zealots from spawning new praise threads every time Barry Altman so much as farts, and counter-zealots from making endless polls about how all CUSA discussion needs to be banned completely?

That's partially because the TOS allows AW to close threads with duplicative subject matter. It's applied to the "recent" topic list.
You could call it a compromise solution, where no one gets exactly what they want, but it works pretty well.

I don't, in anyway, see this as a stance against anti C-USA posts.

If the term uterus is enough to receive Congressional censure, then the posts you pulled and those you edited certainly deserved it.

Probably a good thing the old A.org database was lost. There's still a few as those fading posts lingering on my faded visual memory some where. Red probably remembers well enough. Then again maybe the old archives weren't lost. Wayne may have instead burned them in a funeral pyre out behind his place. And rightly so.

Personal attacks need to come to a halt.  As for the C-USA deal, no - such content should not be "banished" from A.org IF it pertains to Amiga users.  Shouldn't be crammed in peoples faces by "the powers that be" or their friends, either.  No one sees a tablet or commodity HW box with an Amiga wallpaper as the grand savior for the Amiga legacy, however.  That being said, the whole polarized C-USA deal is a complete hot button topic that causes 99% of the conflicts lately.  Some of the absolutely vehement posts from long term members that have erupted in the form of wild personal insults, well:  people WILL walk away from A.org if it continues.  There's a big difference between a joker taking a relatively innocent cheap shot post on someone, then you got guys DEMANDING JUSTICE AND IMMEDIATE BANS while calling others every name in the book on a personal level if people have alternate opinions to their own.  (Magnetic, mainly - nothing personal, dude.  Your posts make the place very unpleasant, far worse than what Franko could ever do - it's unbearable)  A.org is becoming a very unpleasant place to follow.  That sucks.  We'll never all "just get along", but the fact that people are leaving should send a clear message that the ship is veering off course, no?  I'm a SAM/OS4 user, which certainly puts me in a minority.  I started to follow A.org because of the sense of community, the sense that everyone here was here to learn something, to lend a hand.  There's been very, very little kinship here lately, the place is absolutely venomous and bordering on intolerable, forcing people to leave.

As soon as someone makes a personal attack, the post should be edited and a warning given. A second indescretion in the same thread should lead to a 24 hour cooling off period (i.e. a ban).

 CUSA threads should go in the correct section ('CommodoreUSA Partners with Disney' is under the wrong forum heading, imho), and not on the front page unless directly Amiga related. That way, if people go looking fro CUSA threads, it's their own doing. Mods should attempt to remain  bipartisan.

Dealing with Troublesome Users        Can I block posts, emails and messages from specific users?
  If there are particular members that bother you and you do not want  to see their posts or receive Private Messages and Emails from them,  then you can add these members to your 'Ignore List'. There are several  ways to do this:
  Through your User Control Panel: User CP (http://www.amiga.org/forums/usercp.php), Settings & Options, Edit Ignore List (http://www.amiga.org/forums/profile.php?do=ignorelist).  Then, type their name into the empty text box and click 'Okay'.
  What if I see something offensive?
  You will find 'Report' links in many places throughout the board.  These links allow you to alert the board staff to anything which you  find to be offensive, objectionable or illegal.

This whole 'banish CUSA' thing is silly.  Even the idea of 'banish CUSA off the front page' is silly.  If CUSA is not 'Amiga' enough, then neither it s OS4.  The original Commodore didn't make it, and never made anything for the PPC.  So, MorphOS is out too.  The MiniMig is certainly not a 68000, and RetroReplay isn't a real Amiga.  Nor is Natami.  We can banish Amithalon as no different than CUSA, since it was just Linux on an x86 with emulation and some integration.  And we can't forget to banish UAE.  We could give AROS a pass, but only for the 68000 as that is the only version that runs on an actual Amiga.

By the time you banish everything that wasn't produced by or for the one true commodore, you have very little left.

Amiga.org is in the unfortunate situation that it has a few members who go out of their way to troll the board and insult other members.  The moderators don't want to be over zealous, so those individuals get worse.  It isn't hard to figure out who are doing it just to be disruptive, and who isn't.  The worst offenders periodically will openly brag about how good they are at causing problems on the board.

I like it fine the way it is.

Don't turn this into another AW.net, where a great deal of the discussions are about what should/shouldn't be allowed to be discussed, and by whom, with regular polls to try to ban whole subjects of discussions, etc. That's madness. There is already one "TOS.net", let's keep it that way. There is no issue here, and if it aint broken, don't try to fix it. It will only mess things up.

All the things you mention are derivatives of AmigaOS, so are directly Amiga related. If CUSA produce something Amiga related, we have every right to see it on these boards, and i'd expect to.  If they produced an alternative AmigaOS, or an workbench like linux with UAE built in? that would have to count.

Your quite far off the beaten track though, an silk screened logo on an android tablet or C64 PC case bares no relation to something that will run Amiga software, and should not be compared to most of your examples. As an Amigan, i'm quite surprised you can't see the difference.

That doesn't mean there is not a place for these things, it's just people should judge carefully which forum to post them into, and whether or not they are Amiga newsworthy enough to hit the front page.

This is Amiga.org. Not Amiga brand name.org, or commodore.org. The machine(s) that run the OS and software are why (most) of us are here.

As for trolling on the boards,your right, CUSA threads would not be half as bad if our Mods would come down on the worst offenders a bit more often.

I have questions about the mods themselves. I think relying on Karlos and maybe Argo for all the mod duties is shortsighted. We definitely need new mods. I said this earlier today on another thread.

We should kick Wayne Hunt hard (nothing personal) as he's become sort of a burden lately being negative and all. He should know better.

Who is Silver Dragon? I think i have only seen him online maybe twice since i have been a member. Forgive me but isn't it hard to mod properly if you are never online? So tell me again why he is a mod? :confused:

The TOS have never been oppressively enforced on this site, that's why we are here.

There are bunch of "New Users" who don't get that A.org is about users more than some lump of plastic and metal... We all have a common interest and that's brought us together, but we stay for the social!

One more thought to add.... as CUSA rolls out it's 64 and later it's Amiga, chances are the average age of the crowd interested in visiting here is going to drop, perhaps dramatically. Though we have some younger users here now, my perception is that the majority of frequent poster are older duddies like me and the tone is set according.

A.org needs to think about how the forums play in the future. Will it stay the gruffer version where I can learn about barnacle appendages and how the apply to computer thread topics (which I though was funny actually), or will it try to smooth out the rough edges for new visitors?

At this point if my 14 year old who's interested in science and computers wanted to research Amiga info and history at Amiga.org, I'd seriously consider putting it on the restricted list based on the recent activity. Food for thought.

Well, the big difference between you going off on rants and tangents is that you don't have the power to moderate other users posts.

When a mod starts slinging mud and tagging his posts with personal attacks while moderating others "personal attacks", its time for that mod to take a break.

At this point I could give two fecal matters if CUSA stays or goes, red vs blue, or any of the other stupidity that passes for rants on this sites.  I originally came here like a lot of us "newcomers" did - because we feel a personal connection to a (now defunct) brand of silicon.  I voted moobunny on this poll because this poll honestly has nothing to do with its stated purpose.

Despite my asking nicely, more than once to desist, you went out of your way to goad him, implying he's been "bought off" by CUSA etc. All based on the evidence of various emails you claimed to have received but, I might add, failed to produce any evidence of and then acted as if he was in the wrong for reacting negatively to this criticism.

If you think I'm sticking up for him because he's an oldboy pal, you're wrong. If you think I'm defending him because he's been here a long time, you're wrong. If you're thinking he cried for help, you're wrong.

If you think I'm peeved because someone old enough to know better behaved like a complete tool for half the evening, then you are getting warm.

I thought we were all a bit more grown up than that. Imagine my disappointment.

I think you should change that to he went out of his way to goad me, as that would be more correct.

I may have behaved like a "Tool" as you say but so did he, so why aint you saying that he behaved like a "Tool" too, don't need to answer that one cos I already know what the truth is.

As for the emails when the time is right or needed then I will reveal them, whether it's someone just trying to stir things up between me and Red who's sending them I honestly don't know but if I do decide to show you them then you can judge for yourself.

If your disappointed then that's not my problem or concern as such disappointment doesn't really matter to me.

As core the CUSA stuff, I'm sick of the 'kill them' 'they should die', etc, threads. At least they're doing something with the name, and in addition they're doing something beyond just labelling standard hardware, they're making products styled around old C= designs.

I'll play :)

I doubt many youngsters are that interested in owning a breadbinPC, or a new Amiga. New Amigans come through the main Amiga sites first, as a general rule. Lemon Amiga might be a less controvertial forum to start in for a beginner.

If I were researching the Amiga i'd probably start at the Amiga info sites like http://www.amigahistory.co.uk/, wikipedia, or http://amiga.resource.cx/
I don't know if this forum should be child friendly, i'd probably say not.

But seriously, you bring up good points, although for the life of me I can't see anyone coming to this site via CUSA that isn't already an old fuddy-duddy.  The truth is that these pedantic arguments we have over "teh real Amiguh" only matter to us old enough to actually remember what a real amiga is.

One area of A.org where moderation (or lack of) has had an adverse effect is the Marketplace. Trading, buying, selling or dealing in any way, is a total joke here now. Has been for at least the last couple of years. How about this for example.... say you want to sell something. The original poster should have the ability to "lock" their thread and direct all inquiries straight to their mailbox. The seller then could qualify and deal privately. They could then update their sale or wanted thread as applicable and appropriate. Sale threads shouldn't be long-assed MySpace looking vertical nightmares that take up several pages where idiots post silly questions such as "how much to ship to Italy" and then several posts later respond publicly with "interest withdrawn due to shipping".  :mad:

That's just one example where self-voluntary moderation might come in handy. But just think if the original poster was allowed to lock their thread in another forum. They would then be free to post news about 'whatever' without fear of immature reprisal and opinions that just junk up a thread and ultimately, leads to school-yard fighting. If someone is dumb enough to post a flame toward someone or something and then locks the thread, great! Those of us who'd rather dwell on the business at hand, ie: buying/selling/trading/talking about computing, won't have an opportunity to feed the trolls. Combatting nonsense with nonsense isn't being "social". It's counterproductive is all it is.

This is how self-moderation works on some of the most popular social sites in the world. Facebook for example. Don't like what someone has to say? Well, if you're the original poster, you have the ability to simply delete their comment. If you find a comment is irrelevant, delete it. If it's a personal attack - goodbye! If it's a qualified comment and you want to address it in a mature manner and feel the other person can debate in a similar fashion - there you go then! You've now created your own environment where you would feel free to express yourself, all the while ignoring all the dolts around you. Isn't that what we do in real life? Actually, real life face to face, "moderation" is done much more swiftly. Sometimes with violence. Sometimes through legal means or through some other form of punishment or reprimand.

You do realise that Wayne is no longer in charge, right? If he's become a bit more "free" with his opinion, that's to be expected: since selling up, he doesn't have to try and please everybody anymore.

Sure I know it, I watched Jens flounce off when no one would tell him who the new owner was :)

 I just found Reds comment amusing: wayne wanted a family friendly site, and some of the newer members don't get it...and Wayne's one of the guys spouting! You couldn't make it up ;)

Anyway, i'm all for a bit more moderating. It won't need to be hands on forever, once everyone get's 'smacked with the hairy side' a few times, they will know what's allowable and what isn't...which means you'll have a sore arse franko :)

So we can be adult, but not specifically child friendly, which should be good enough.

@save2600
"This is how self-moderation works on some of the most popular social sites in the world. Facebook for example. Don't like what someone has to say? Well, if you're the original poster, you have the ability to simply delete their comment. If you find a comment is irrelevant"

Don't fancy that at all. I don't like the idea of censorship, or private deals for selling goods. A few good mods should be all that we need. I'd hate threads to become someones private playground. You could use the blog function for that.

The only time moderation is really required is if someone says something slanderous or threatening to another member.

The proper action is that the slandered member (or someone who know it's slander) should hit the Report button...and say nothing in the thread until a moderator handles the situation.

If the insulted person wishes to calmly explain the situation as best he understands it so the rest of us see what happened that's fine but basically, can we all just Get Along like grownups?  

and if you don't care for some people the Ignore Feature is your friend. Not here, but i have used it myself on other places. It's a good thing

You have received an infraction at Amiga.org
Dear Franko,

You have received an infraction at Amiga.org.

Reason: Insulted Other Member(s)
-------
Complete disregard for TOS
-------

This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

Nah. I know the current staff and they are "sympathetic" to what is transpiring here on a.org.

I see CUSA threads there too, so it isn't as if there's some iron fist moderation policy going on and they're in some sheltered bubble of innocence regarding the announcements.

The way I see it people arent perfect, sometimes theyre moody, sometimes life throws them a bad day, sometimes they just gout out of bed on the wrong side, but its how a person moves on (or not) that decides whether theyre a "public" nuisance or not. The terms of conditions are quite reasonable here and I really dont understand why people keep bringing up the whole "freedom of speech" thing. There's never been a time my thoughts have been moderated, even if Ive passinoately disagreed with someone else. The only time I can see it being a problem is if someone is being unreasonable/trouble making/etc. that moderation ever comes into things. Even in the real world freedom of speech only allows you reasonable leeway. A person would be evicted from a pub (random example) for carrying on to the level that might see a person moderated.

Yes there's been a more than average amount of arguing and whatnot here lately, but in humble opinion it'd fade away if people just let it go.

As for my vote, I havent yet, but Im leaning towards the 2nd and 3rd options. Leave things more or less the way they are, but maybe be a little quicker to give a friendly nudge on the shoulder if a person is starting to behave like a clown.

We don't need any moderation at all in my opinion, unless direct personal threats or mindless spam.

If amiga.org choose to accept this simple path you are welcome to use this logo.

(http://www.eurasia.nu/images/berzerk_logo.gif)

Freedom of speech is a basic right that should be honored and cherished, not sadly crippled by moderators. From experience people tend to behave well when allowed to type pretty much anything they want, it works because people are generally good once given a chance to prove it.

Freedom of speech doesn't have to apply to privately owned forums. Same goes for homes: Sure, you have freedom of speech, but don't expect me to allow you to say everything you want in my home.

This is a public website where you don't need to register to read posts, even more public than the streets in a way.

I think people tend to become rascals (or juvenile) when you police/moderate them, on the other hand, if they are responsible for what they post without getting banned or have their posts edited they are on their own, and there's no moderator around to save them when arguments don't hold water.

Since a time ago I'm more time in EAB. Yesterday I was asking here what was happening. Today I did in EAB. The thread was closed as two others about Cusa and A-Org. Perhaps it's too much, but perhaps it's necessary to have some order.

Just checked it, and that's certainly not what Amiga.org needs.


I wouldn't worry Thorham all this CUSA stuff will end soon enough and the site will get back to being a place for great advice and fun once again... :)

I'd point you to moobunny to evaluate that theory ;)


I can point you to my site (http://www.eurasia.nu/modules.php?name=Forums&file=index), where 271340 registered users get along just fine (most of the time).

Open up an Amiga section and see how long that lasts! ;)

Hehe. Seriously though, I don't see how it can end without moderation? If people can have it out without interference, the storms settle pretty quick.

Why would it do that?
Something tells me this has just gotten started and is only going to get worse once C=USA releases an Amiga.

This might well be the only thing you and I will agree on now.
You will never have a chance to "MODERATE" me again. Since it seems that any thing we say will be considered a "personal attack", and nobody is talking Amiga anymore - I guess I'm gone.
You might have very empty room to MODERATE soon.

No worries, I no longer am a moderator. Chances are Amiga.org will slip closer to Moobunny by the day.

No, just a bunch of hackers and copyright violators. In other words, nice people.

Nah... "The Sweeney" (Sweeney Todd = Flying Squad) was an old 70s British cop show famous for it's f'ing and blinding and cops knocking seven bells out the baddies... :)

Best of it was parents let their kids watch it cos we all used to play at being "The Sweeney" at school the next day and  were for ever getting into trouble for swearing and knocking the crap out of each other (course in them days there was no such thing as PC (Politically Correct) come to think of it there were no such things as PC (as in computer) either... ahh, happy days... :)
