Often, issues are dealt with before many people see the aftermath... moderators tend to be quick acting on sax-p (if someone is online)

There are currently OVER 900 deleted threads in this community... threads rarely get deleted. Sometimes the get locked to diffuse a situation, but something 'bad' has to happen to get a post deleted.

So 900 deletions is pretty bad...

I worry that this could be because of a more abrupt approach though. I dont think too many people have taken offence mate but if you open a thread asking for comments then people will pick niggly worries. I'm all for the system, aslong as its used in a similar mannor as you would do when recieving a word from a mod re-instating the rules.

Then dont worry...

If you receive an infraction penalty you automatically receive a PM saying what/when/why you received it along with some comments from the moderator.

The mode of contact is far easier/efficient for the moderators.

and that short explanation has scratched the worry I had. It sounds like it will also cause alot less hastle for when people do have to be warned as I've noticed sometimes when mods step in, they get a fair bit of attention, like school kids laughing when there mate gets told off. I for one hold my hands up for occasionaly having a giggle at someone getting a little irate because because there posts/threads get deleted!

sorry mate missed your post, I was referring to a thread I read a little while ago about things such as a different selling system. I would have thought a bit of confidence when buying/selling would have been up there on most users wish list, rather than dicipline! lol but guess we always have egay! Another was regional meets I think or a big sax-p meet?? Anyhow i'm quite looking forward to seeing the system in place was just wondering if it was a mod decision to introduce this system or whether we, as in paying users, were asked where we'd like to see time spent?

Premium Members are constantly asked how the Premium Member services should be improved... and usually we receive very little feedback.

Membership fees do not contribute in any way towards 'time' being spent on management activities. Nobody receives a wage from this.

Some people are blowing this system WELL OUT OF PROPORTION.

It took approx 2 hours to set this system up... and a couple of weeks to chew it over and decide if it was the correct thing to do (a process always undertaken by the admin/mod team). The community will see that it was the correct decision in time.

This thread has turned into quite a deep cutting debate and shows some members' true feelings about certain aspects of Saxperience. I am truly concerned and a little disgusted by some of these feelings.

I can see my responses getting shorter and blunter.

am i right in thinking that this is just a method of moderating the forum in a controlled way, as opposed to simply banning people for offences on some occasions and doing nothing at other times? Why do people have a problem with this? Why do they even care that much as it won't affect many on here

Yes.... thats exactly right.

This system offers the moderators a better tool to moderate consistently AND offers a better method of documenting who has dealt with what situation... and how.

It also enables the community to 'see' things are being dealt with responsibly.

Seems to me people are taking this out of proportion.

I don't even let it bother me, I'm just carrying on using Saxperience as I have always done and always will.

Simple as, I have nothing to be afraid of because I don't act like a dick on the forums tbh.

I didnt even read the thread, I just found the need to post a pointless remark as 10 pages have passed and there was not 1 post from myself.
