It's really simple, refrain from personal attacks.
Refrain from subtle innuendo that someone's point of view is an indicator that they're stupid.
Wouldn’t it be nice if this was the way people behaved?
Actually, most KVR members do a fairly decent job. There are a few problem people. Some don’t seem to be aware of how to take care in their wording, but aren’t inherently aiming to irritate (social awkwardness; abounds on the Internet).
Some don’t feel it’s worth their effort to be careful with their words whatsoever. They put the responsibility of interpretation, being bothered or not, etc, entirely on others (not a good social ethos, but also common on the internet, especially in tech forums).
A very very tiny minority are actually huge trolls
, which seem to be protected by the site admin, despite CONSTANTLY being aggressive jerks/trolls in every thread where they post. Why KVR tolerates this tiny minority of repeat offenders I will never understand. It’s self-destructive to the forum in several ways.
Mod edit: seriously...you are trying to get this locked?
Here's the thing. A few hours later Jace's post is still standing. Am I allowed to respond? Or will I get slapped down for replying?
no, it has nothing to do with jace's post feel free (as long it's within the rules oc) I edited just a simple personal attack made (one that seems to ruffle a lot of feathers and serves no useful purpose), and yes it pissed me off..I know Dave was being cheeky but there is a time and place for it and this was not it.
To be fair, I erred because when I deleted the thread and then brought it back (called a soft delete) I was out with Holly having dinner and going for a ride), I checked my phone while she was in the lady's room and there was a PM from someone about this thread. As it was I was going to wait until I could go over at home on my laptop to restore it but I decided to do it there on my phone and I missed that quote...I apologize Dave, if I had of seen it, the quote would have been deleted, that's what I always try to do.
Now I want people to think about that last paragraph, I was out to eat with my honey but was still here too.
Now to Jace's point, naturally I agree on all but the last part, a great expression I like is your perception is your reality
, I dont think I can argue your point with you because of that (not a bad thing ftr). This is very common everywhere, we all do it and so said expression applies to us all. Please keep in mind I was a high posting member for 13 years before I became a mod, I can absolutely understand your feelings, I do disagree but...here's the thing, my reality is I think KvR is great, we have so much to offer each other and do. We have many of the top name devs here on a regular basis, extremely intelligent people, people with all levels of talent and skills in so many ares people come here to learn.
I would hope people, some of which have known me for over 16 years, would know is, what I do I do for KvR and not any single person. I'll always be learning and growing as a mod, but what I do I do for the good of this place. I listen to you (as in kvr, not just you jace), I act for you, I advocate for you and I learn from you. I try to explain things when I can, I dont always just act
like this thread appears to assume. I am out here on the forums all the time, I go into some threads with a little silly just to remind people I am there. I try to keep things very light and I am surely 90% clown. All I have ever asked for is just a little respect and part of that respect is simply having faith that Hink will always do his best kvr. Also understanding that I'm human, I make mistakes and sometimes I'm wrong because I also do try my best to make amends when I do err and I really hope that shows.
