Some Board Changes, Listen Up!

Post by Bev » Mon Feb 09, 2009 8:47 pm

Stony, Pike Ridge and I just got done with an hour-long web meeting where we discussed the administration of this board. There are going to be some changes that some of you won't like, most of you I believe will.

1. There will be no slamming the board, its rules, or the moddys (including me). You are a guest here, and you will have to show respect and manners -- even if you disagree with how we do things. We have a PM feature if you want to object to something. If you think you are at liberty to embarrass us or hold our feet to the fire over something, you are wrong. We will start deleting any and all posts we find to be of an insulting nature that are aimed at those providing you this forum. If we find we have to delete your posts often, (and you aren't learning from your mistakes) then you will be gone. When dogs bite the hand that feeds them, they don't stay in the kennel long.

2. We have created an Administrator's forum that is accessible by only us. We will utilize this forum to keep each other updated on who had to have corrective action and when. The info will stay there forever. If we find you have a history of coming here mostly just to stir a turrd, it may be a deciding factor if we are considering termination of your membership.

3. Do NOT make slanderous remarks or pick fights with other board members. This is not kindergarten. It's an adult discussion board where ideas are shared and sometimes debated. It can be done in an adult manner. Read this part carefully. I don't care if you have a quick temper. I don't care if you are just a teenager. I don't care if somebody said something about you first. You do not get a pass from me. I don't care what your particular problem or excuse is. If you attack others personally, you will pay the price. Disagree with them all you want, but do it respectfully.

If you are pi$$ed right now reading this, then it probably applies to you especially. If You are glad to see this, then you are the type of members we want to attract and keep. We will not let you be abused, and we will not be abused by message board thugs.

Thank you.

Thank you Bev, Stony, and Pike Rdg. I know it is hard for you to take such extraordinary measures but you really weren't left with much of a choice. The Administrators forum should prove especially helpful and I fully support your efforts in keeping this a clean, friendly, and free resource for everyone. Thank you all for what you do.

Bev and board members, thanks for keeping this forum for hounds and houndsmen/women. I do like some of the topics that have been on here lately but I do agree that it turned into a pissing contest and needed to come to a stop. thanks again

Having walked in your shoes many miles as a moderater and as an owner (both boards now defunct), I have huge respect for you. I have enough drama in real life to want to deal with it on the boards. I come here for knowledge, laughs and smiles. I used to tell them all, save the drama for your Momma or get out of the sandbox. Kudos!! Keep up the good work :!:

I used to be really, really strict on this board - back when it started, and we never had lack of participation. And we had a ton of laughs. But I've gotten lax since then and look what happens. My suggestion to those who feel the board is a good place to cause problems for those they don't like, is to go down to the Prayer Request forum and just read through that for a while. Then decide if the bug up your butt was really that big of a deal or not.

Thanks for the encouraging words everyone. And thanks Aaron and Ed. (Two top-notch beaglers, folks!)
