I need to see what others are thinking about this topic?
As you know... Allen introduced "Members Are Moderators" concept in this new WF 3.0
By Allen Says:
"...What they are for, on this board, is for members to help 'train' new people who are screwing up before they get themselves banned." |
"...The infractions will stay because it gives members the ability to warn new people here that they are making some mistake, and they can then correct it or get booted."
"...So no worries about infractions. Use them for what they are intended for. If you get one you don't feel is right don't bother contacting anyone, just let it expire."
(i.e. only Admin should see who gave infractions to whom?)
or it should be (as it is now) onymous?
While infractions are expiring in 10 days...
It still feels bad when one is given
This was discussed (without a poll) by Jenn Dize (and others) but I was just wondering if members agree with her point of view (I do).
Advantages of being anonymous (among many others):
- Members can give infractions freely, knowing that they won't be attacked back by the 'infracted' member... in all cases Admin is watching!
- "infracted" members are going to think twice before doing something that
annoys the community... because they know that they will be "punished"
without a chance to "slap back".
Advantages of being onymous (among many others):
- Members who "standout" and give infraction, are aware that they
have to be responsible enough to do so...
Since they MAY (or may not?) be creating an ongoing [negative feelings] with another warrior.
- The ability to "traceback" any unfair infractions.
I'm curious what you guys think about this?
P.S. Please understand that I'm not criticizing (or bitching) how the forum is working... I'm only wondering if people are thinking as I do in this regard?
P.P.S. Post your opinion and also use the "anonymous" poll ...
