<font size="1" face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif">But i also have to disagree with the whole NL aspect and your issue with the mods. If Aarathi needed help with the NL, she would've asked. Obviously it's enough for her to handle and she has people contributing to the NL so it isn't just her. I don't think you can make the judgement that she has too much work for herself to handle with the fact that 2 other NL members are inactive.</font>
<font size="1" face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif">Also you said you didn't intend to make the thread "personal" or to "hurt" anyone. Well it sure seems to me that you really did want to take it personally. Calling out Gunia like that was wrong. Especially since this is a PUBLIC forum and I really don't think every single person in this forum cares if you have issues with her. That's something that needs to be dealt with through PM, not in a public manner. That to me is just childish. If she's inactive that's her choice. We all have things to tend to in our own life. You yourself said you have exams. Just because she is a mod doesn't make her a superhero. If she's inactive that's her choice and if you want someone else to replace her or for her not be moderating this forum that's something you'll have to take up with the GM.</font>
<font size="1" face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif">ALSO coming back to the aspect of MODS aren't superheroes. Yes I do think that some mods are unfair and I have my fair share of "mod bashing" but you can't expect them to cater to your every need or anyone's every need.</font>
<font size="1" face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif">Look at it through their eyes. They have to make basically EVERYONE on this forum happy, along with closing a bunch of useless threads and they have their own personal life to deal with. I get that you're upset that there's some threads that are floating around that are totally not needed and there should be more imp threads but you can't expect things to get done right away. I'm sure they're trying their best.</font>
<font size="1" face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif">This is just my opinion and I hope understand where i'm coming from.</font>
I understand ur POV and thanks a lot for the comments.
I don't expect u or anyone to agree with me on this account.I stated what I wished just like everyone else.
Since I've never ever seen ur posts in QH forum I wonder if u are new here.I think you are not aware about what has happened in the past 6 months.
We had to pm mods for the silliest issues since they never took initiative but thankfully things are much better than before.But there is always a room for improvement right?
Nothing is right or wrong in this world,everything is perception.
You may be ok with an inactive mod,I'm not.PERIOD!
I've already talked a lot about ur suggestion regarding our mod with CM n admins but they always say that they'll look into the matter and take proper actions.
CM says that the decision lies with admins n she can only forward my request.
I made a request for one more mod when we had only 3 DTs here and the condition of the forum was pathetic with too many bashers.
Infact we didn't have a single Viewbie for a week or two before making a demand for it.
Nothing works on IF before a protest and sadly the dirty politics in choosing DTs exists here as well.
You must have noticed that it was not only me who felt that DTs are not giving 100% on the forum.So,definitely things are not 99% right here.Isn't it?
I hope u may understand that I didn't have any personal motive behind the thread and yeah I really didn't wish to offend.
I think if Gun and others believed that they did their job with 100% dedication,the wishlist thread must have not witnessed such an immature behaviour from the side of DTs.They not only cornered me but others as well just because we don't fear to get a warning or the image on this so-called public forum.I wonder if IF shud be called a public forum at times.Really members receive very less freedom here as compared to various other portals which are even bigger than IF.The admins don't give a damn at times to the pms send to them.The voices of the forum members are often not heard or deliberately ignored just like mine.
I understand that gun has genuine problems of exams but she has been saying this since 29th October.How come is this possible?
She only appears on my threads on the forum which question the DT activities apart from stickies and other bashers/conflicting threads.what shud I derive out of this?
I wonder if few DTs of the forum even watch the show.Really,I've felt that a few don't give a damn to forum rankings as they like other shows coz often I've seen them playing pass the buck game.Often,I've seen DTs to blame lower rank's reason on members that they can't do anything if members are not involved in various activities.
I don't want mods to fulfill my wishes.I just want them to take care of my beloved forum properly which very often they don't have time to do for whatever genuine reasons they have.
Another thing which intrigues me is that if a person does not have much time to devote to the forum,why has he/she taken up such a huge responsibility in the first place?This fact really amuses me at times and sometimes my ears get really tired of hearing I'm busy with exams,studies,job,etc etc when things have to compromised regarding the forum activities.
Personally,I feel that mods shud be chosen from the members of the forum by the forum members instead of admins coz I'm a firm believer of democracy.But then I think I don't really have a say in this matter being a mere member and I'm ok with the procedures n policies of IF as long as they are working for the benefit of forum members.Sometimes it's really difficult to happily accept a person to make decisions for the forum and control it if he/she appears to have no interest in the show and this disinterest in the show eventually reflects upon the performance as well.
OMG!! I just realized that I've written soo much...
I didn't have intentions to corner Gun or anyone else.I just wanted to ask if her exams will ever end and I don't understand why she has made such a huge hue and cry about it.I just want the mod of this forum to be a little more active here.I don't think I've asked Gun to bring a star for me.Right?As a member it feels really nice to see DTs showing some interest and passion in taking the forum to number 1 position.
Just like RD organized VM contest,I wish apart from members other DTs may also take such amazing initiatives like this.We have had a OS contest earlier and I thank Shifu n Gun for that from the bottom of my heart.
You have expressed ur thoughts really well.
I just went on with the flow and didn't notice that I've said soo many things when I don't even know you.So,I went through ur profile and noticed that u r a IPK/SRS fan,right?
Welcome to the QH forum dear.
I hope u've a great time here...
And yeah!! Thanks for telling me that u too had some experience with the attitude of mods in some matters.
PS-All the above mentioned things are my personal views.Kindlydon't take things to heart.I apologize in advance if I've hurt someone.
