I have repeatedly asked by PM/FM what is the policy regarding “breaking” news...with no response.
There is nothing on the pages regarding posting as to what does or does not constitute “breaking”.
When I post something in “breaking” with which the mods disagree all my posts for the next 24 hours are relegated to the hinterlands of “General Chat”.
I get it: Your forum, your rules. But PLEASE, offer some solid guidance or else remove the “breaking” option for news forum posts.
Even if they do not answer directly it would be beneficial to post the guidelines so that people know the rules.
We do not necessarily have to agree with the rules, but we will respect them. What I have no tolerance for is rules that appear arbitrary. That would make us democrats.
It’s not just Twitter or whether it’s Breaking or Vanity....I can post something that is a vanity and be following what I assume is the rules and get booted even when posting under chit chat and then 2 threads older or newer there is the exact same type of vanity comment and it is allowed. I have no issue with being booted but there never seems to be an explanation that I can find and when I ask the moderator I never get a reply. It does seem to be at the whim of the moderator and not really consistent.
Can be frustrating. I don’t think any of us have a gripe about it if that is the decision but it would be really nice to know why so we don’t make the same mistake again.
This thread will probably be zotted...
