Xtstrike had no right!


Xtsrike really had no right to close the thread. I think everyone knows what I'm talking about. He claims that bla bla bla people were just trying to increase there post count. They can do that anywhere in the lounge and not just the thread. Now he's probabley going to close this one because I'm bad mouthing him or whatever but he still had no right. That was a thread where a few of us could just go hang out and talk and know that a lot of the posts would only been seen by about 4 or 5 of us. Xtstrike, Chicken didn't have a problem with it. Nor did Matt F. So why did you? Jelous?

I would like to point out that in such an instance, please e-mail the moderator directly and ask politely why. As other moderators do not override others' decisions except in extreme circumstances and majority agreement, the thread will stay closed until further notice.

If you would like to vent, please do so in the thread one_web posted.

Well being that Xtsrike of all people closed that thread, I guess this is the one to use now. I do agree that Xtsrike tends to go over board, but I can see that being a MOD your really forced to read through all the stuff. So what is the right answer? Who knows, maybe on issues like this, ALL MODS get together and make a desision. It was posted in the open area with no specific topics required. I would hope that this thread does not get deleted, because I think this should be discussed, not Xtsrike, but the topic of one MOD closing a thread, just because he doesn't like it.

I don't know what thread you're talking about, but considering he's a mod, he has a right to do whatever he wants.

If one's not willing to read all the threads in the chit chat forum, then perhaps that person shouldn't be a mod for it.

Well, it isn't that he (or we) do whatever we want, it is that we try to do what we think is best. I had to take a mini-WHT-vacation (just busy here at the ranch), so I wasn't around for that thread in particular, but in any case, threads are closed for a reason, and if you ever don't agree, you are welcome to repectfully voice your opinon directly to either the mod who closed the thread, or to all mods, or matt or any combination of these.

People did voice their opinion and this is what he said

Hi, I have to reply just to calm things down.

Remember all of this you are arguing about is the closure of ONE thread that wasnt actually anything to do with web hosting. please just look at what you are getting irate about in perspective.

The only people getting annoyed here are the few people that posted bucket loads of times to the thread with meaningless messages.

Its not just the aspect of reading through it all, or any kind of "spam" aspect, its also because the thread was "CRAP", when I first looked at the thread I thought as many other mods and people did, you look at it, reply and your go is over, people went over the top and this huge thread kept bouncing back to the top of the board because of a few members that made sure it stayed at the top.

Let me tell you now, we have a split, you people want the thread open because you want to continue to blast it with meaningless posts, I also have on the other side a bunch of people that have PM'ed me saying the closure was a good choice, they messaged me AFTER the thread was closed.

Im not making you unhappy about WHT, im purely stating a fact that this board is about Web Hosting and general conversation in the "Lounge" your thread wasnt even "general conversation" because general conversation has a meaning to it.

Anyone that still has a problem can message me or the other mods in private, request my ICQ number from me in private if you feel it that desperate to talk about it.

Cheers

-XT

Do you think those are words a mod should be using? Well I'm not going to say anything else as he said he will close all threads that are started on this

CLOSED - REPLY PRIVATELY AS I POLITELY ASKED.

IM NOT GOING TO ARGUE OVER THE MOST POINTLESS THREAD I HAVE EVER CONTENDED WITH - OPEN ANOTHER THREAD ON THIS AND IT WILL BE DELETED.

REPLY PRIVATELY OR REQUEST MY TELEPHONE NUMBER/ICQ NUMBER AND WE CAN TALK.

Not to start a war or anything, but coming from the other side I personally agree, and was glad to see it closed. Xtstrike in my opinion was just doing his job.

My 2 cents...

I totally Agree!

If you have nothing to say, do it in another place.

Sorry but I don't agree. We speak had a thread, then he closed the thread. So we started another thread asking people what they thought of that decision and then he of all people closes that thread.

Chris -- That's exactly the point. He's a mod, he can do what he wants and it doesn't matter what we think of it. Mods aren't elected, so popular opinion doesn't matter.

I bet if the other mods thought he were overstepping his bounds they would do something about it. Opening a thread about the closing of another thread, and this thread about the closing of that one just clutters things up more. I wouldn't be suprised if this one got closed and quite frankly it wouldn't bother me a bit.

Again, my 2 cents...

I know xt personally.. and I don't see anything wrong with closing the thread. You guys are making a big deal out of a silly thread. I mean come on..

There are other people that want to post too, and it gets annoying when you come there days after days and its still at the top, with meaningless text.

I don't know why he would close the second thread though. Maybe he was closing it because you guys were taking things way too seriously, which some have displayed here in this thread alone..

Knowing xt i would assume that he just wanted you guys to cool off, or something like that, but really. let this go, its just a thread.

It's not the end of the world.

I get annoyed by some of WHT's members, but that doesn't mean I would support the censoring of those people. Supporting the censorship of something you don't like is different from censoring it because it is unacceptable.

And if a person isn't willing to read the threads he is moderating, then maybe he shouldn't be a mod any longer.
