Default Emotional participants

Dear friends,

When one goes through the contents of various threads, one cannot help feeling that a lot of space is taken by posts which are emotional in nature. This includes personal attacks and intolerance with the opinions of participants with different point of view etc.

Instead of venting their emotions in all threads, there should be one dedicated thread where the emotional participants should give vent to their feelings. This will free up the remaining threads of their emotional outbursts and those threads can be used to discuss the topic at hand.

While going through the list of threads, I came through the thread " Posting Guidelines" which had prompted no replies. I cannot blame the participants because there was indeed no option of reply in that thread so even willing participants could not have responded.

The participants who find it difficult to keep within the " Posting Guidelines" should have one forum dedicated to them. I think the Super Administrators should take appropriate action and create a thread for this purpose.

Thanks

Emotion comes within the package of the person. So it's hard to seperate if not impossible, more so for non-specialists like us.

In fact emotion is something that get us going. But as a responsible adult we should be able to keep it within the city, thukku, community limits. If not there are police, thukku again, mods around!

Posting guidelines was discussed adequately before being adapted. But we are open to suggestions. Anyone can avail the wonderful scope of a post to make the call.

Your suggestion was noted. We'll keep it in mind next time we discuss about the guideline.

Thank you.

This is a sports channel. There will be excitement,emotion for your team. Thats what make it fun, different from regular life, where everybody needs to keep their guard. This emotion about our team and country makes us fanatic. So let us be fanatic. Donot treat us as student of theological baptist convention.

Front article writen by chinaman if I am not misteken, talks about n-tier system. Whole discussion started from the thread vv_shunil started. Things got toasty in that thread a lot of time. At the end came out nice report and understanding about good and bad of the n-tier system. If it would be a polite discussion where everybody is keeping their mouth shut thinking of other people's feeling then realization about the topic wouldn't be as clear as now. So let the Idea flow, even if it is little heated. Its a sport channel, not a Baptist convention.

I do understand cricketfan's point of view. I think, with the expressions of emotions and wonderful balancing acts by the mods, we do pretty good, compared to other fan sites. It's a good mix. Also, we do a pretty good job detecting the bad apples quickly. Having said that, there may still be a need for some fans to have an unmoderated fansite. May be not on this site, but somewhere else. I like this one the way it is. If we have an unmoderated forum here, I can see it quickly spill over to other sections. My two cents.

Personal attack should be moderated if it is reported. When 2 person exchanging, context matter. Sometimes mods interupt without understanding the context of it. If one person complain to moderator then something should be done. Otherwise live it alone.Everybody is adult here.

I personally found moderator didnot go through the matter entirely, but imposed his will anyway. This is not good for the conversation.

You have a point there, sageX. But you know what, prevention is always better than cure.

We can always keep an watchful eye on heated discussions but personal attack is a definite no no. Besides more often than not, personal attacks kick in when one finds only scanty of reasoning. So in all likelyhood, once started it has little chance of getting resolved by itself. Moreover, early intervention has extra benefit of early reconciliation.

Ofcourse there are other sides of the coin. But in general, in order to be consistent, we follow certain rules. We also try to recognize other grey areas as well. We try our best but certainly we can not gurantee that our call will always be right. And even when we are wrong you guys always can point that out with sound explanations.

Moderation's a tricky business. I'm glad we have it. It actually helps everyone sound-off in a democratic way. I find that moderation here is done in a civilized manner. One may not like every call made by the umps in a game, and sometimes, they do make bad calls. All in all, I think most of us support the job these guys do.

Unfortunately, everyone here isn't an adult here. We have some 13/14 year old members among us.

"Unfortunate" refers to the comment of assuming that everyone is an adult.

We welcome members from all age groups. There's nothing unfortunate about it.

Is it true? Are memebers of all age groups really welcome? I understand that it is difficult to monitor the age of all registrants. But, the COPPA agreement says the following:

This bulletin board has COPPA (Child's Online Privacy Protection Act) compliancy turned on. This means that you must, on the current time and date, be 13 years of age or older in order to participate in any functions of this message board (registering, posting, etc.). By clicking the button below, you agree that you are at least 13 years old.

When I said age groups, I meant age groups and nothing more. I wasn't talking about any specific age. We welcome all age groups as in, teenange children(obviously 13 or over as they agreeded to COPPA), young adults 18 and obove, 20s-30s group, 30s to 40s group, and 40+.

As far as I know currently we have all age groups covered in the forum.
