Praise for a moderator - it is due!
So a rule had been changed a while back and i was not aware of it - as most people i read them once in a while but not too often. As a result i was actually breaking the rules for quite some time - and would have to accept any consequences right down to a ban.
This did not happen!
Instead a moderator contacted me nicely to make me aware of the change, which happened a few months back already, and was even so nice to explain (in a second message none less!) how and why it happened.
And that deserves a praise, the guy in question is xxxxx and i love him for being a real human moderator, no "i am god" complex and no power trips as i have experienced on a certain other site in the past.
This is why i love gaytorrent.ru, the staff here is just simply nice!
And here publicly i promise to check the rules on a weekly basis now to make sure i won't break them ever again.
Edit: disguise a single moderator's name
Thanks for your plaudit.
All staff members try to help our members and explain what and why a member made a mistake (in case there happens something like that).
Of course we (staff members) all are glad hearing such praise about a member of our team. I hope you will not be angry with me that I had to overwrite that moderator's name - we don't want to single out a moderator not positive nor negativ, I hope you can understand our reasons. We once(?) had a rule about moderator fan postings are not appropriate, sorry I could not find it again :(
Let me say "Thank you" as well - in the name of all members of our team.
No problem my friend. I have previously had very nice conversations with other members of the team and was always extremely happy to be here. Just that today i was in fact caught breaking a rule of which i didn't know it had been changed and that is why i wanted to highlight that one person who pointed me to said rule instead of first banning me and then letting me guess for what (as happened some other place).
Many thanks again for your support, the support of all the team and staff in fact, and a good night from Thailand…..
I don't have any experiences from other private trackers/forums since this is the only one I joined but I agree with Thanhbkk.
Whatever mistakes I made or problems encountered here, there was a very good communication with the mods. I observed professionalism, politeness and helpfulness.
'hurrah' to you guys. Thank you for your hard work. Much appreciated.
