Absolute Disappointment in Site Administration

I've been a member here for quite awhile now and have thought highly of the job done by administration for the entire course of that time. I've agreed with every decision made by you guys, and supported every change you've made to the site.

In creating the new Off Topic Forum, a need for a moderator was obvious...and the members of all forums requested numerous times that an official vote be held. That never happened...

I speak for myself...but I am positive I am not the only member that is completely in disagreement with site administrations choice for a moderator.

The member chosen is obviously not capable of handing the position and the authority that comes with it. He is biased towards the younger and more immature members of the board, and has proven in the few hours as moderator that he is himself not mature enough to handle his newfound authority.

Within an hour of receiving the job, he made a derogatory comment to me in this thread obviously bragging.
Looks like your day took a turn for the worse, huh?
Collinj, the longtime former moderator of the General forum is also outraged at the choice for moderator...TNproud2b lost posting priviledges at Collin's Website because he attacked the members of www.force3d.com to the point that he was banned.

He has already edited posts with a bias, and will continue doing so in the future. He edited Collinj's post here but didn't edit his friends post here until Collinj made a comment about it...then it was suddenly "taken care of".

Pathetic...I am sincerely disappointed that you have made no comment on any of these complaints Mr. Jarmark...and I am further disappointed that I received no response from you via email.

Sander Sassen...I would appreciate your thought on this issue as well. You have my personal email address, my ICQ number, and my work email address. I would appreciate something from you concerning your opinion of the choice.

Anxiously awaiting commentary,

SkySlash

You forgot to give them your 800 number.

I though TN gave you this support for the mod position. But now you turn this around and not support him isn't going to be too cool with some people.

sin2 - i'm not sure i see the logic there.
if TN supported SS, then it necessarily means SS must support TN?

anticircular reasoning?

PS: i got nothing against you, just pointing out what i see as flawed reasoning

I vote for TNproud2b, he votes for me also, so in my opinion the best solution is to elect he and myself as co-moderators.
-SS
From Skyslash's quote above, he did support TN. He's just feeling left out.

I supported him ONLY if he had a co-moderator that was on the conservative side of issues.

I made that clear...very clear!

He cannot do this by himself, he's already proven that...and at this point I DO NOT WANT the position...period!

That is my final thought...

Here's the deal. I mentioned to SS that he need some help of senior members if he wants the gig. Not just newbies facinated by his name. So SS replied to and said TN supports him and TN is not a newbie by a long shot.

You know the whole deal about mutual sponsorships. Seems the deal is off when TN got the spot.

There was no "flawed resoning". I am not even trying to reason a point. Just stating what took place.

That is completely incorrect and false. TN and I discussed this over email, not in a forum, and I based my decision on his email, not on any of your comments to me.

PS, SkySlash you've got 10 minutes to remove your ridiculous post from the forum I moderate or I will "help you out with it", so to speak.

It offends me, and I'm a member here too.
There's a link for this Feedback forum at the top of every page - if anyone is interested in what you've got to say, I imagine they'll click that link at the top of any given page.

9 minutes left...

Another fine example of inability to be neutral.

No TN...go ahead, I encourage you to abuse your authority...I'll just post it again...and you can delete it again...and by the way, I've got every thread that you've ignored the language in saved to disk...including that one above...

I like to keep records of people proving my points for me.

my watch was a little fast...

the next time I see a post in the 'Off Topic' forum with its sole purpose in life being to inflame or voice disrespect to anyone - I will give it the same kind of 'help' I just gave your post.

There has to be a limit, and now you know what it is.

And now you've abused your authority...

My original post said:
I would appreciate it if everyone would click on this link and share your thoughts with site administration.

Thank You,

SkySlash
Nothing offensive, nothing derogatory...and I have a copy of the original page if anyone wants to dispute that.

Contgratulations TN, you just screwed yourself...

Good job there and thanks for playing...Next!

If you think for a minute, maybe they gave me this authority because they expect me to edit offensive posts...like yours.

A lot of people have faith in me that I'll do the right thing - and so far I think I have.

TN,

But do you think editing people's post is the right thing to do? Only in extreme cases where the post gets edited. I can stand posts being deleted or threads locked but I can't stand being edited.

How about make your final comment then lock it. Let the people decide afterward.

I just 'abused my authority' again.

Keep your hateful topics in another forum - this one will do for now.

Until they make you your own.
