    Re: Derailment du jour and you

    I have absolutely no control of people responding to what I say..I do try to get back on topic,but if others keep going..perhaps I should just stop typing,and I at times get the feeling that if it happens it is ALL me.

    - - - Updated - - -

    also understand I am not typing thing to force a derailment,but it seems some believe I am doing things on purpose

    - - - Updated - - -

    That is how it feels from this side.
    MAGIC is MAGIC,black OR white or even blood RED

    all i ever wanted was a normal life and love.

    This isn't directly relevant but there are two misinterpretations here that I want to clear up.

    Historically, no one turns you in. Your posts come to staff attention because unlike the rest of the board, we do have a responsibility to monitor things. I've said this before and will again, 95%+ of reported threads are reported by staff members to catch the attention of other staff members and give a concise place to discuss a specific issue. Most of the remaining reported posts are members reporting spam. A member based report that isn't related to spam is just slightly more likely than a unicorn and a member based report regarding a senior member is slightly more likely than a unicorn farting rainbows. If we appear to respond faster in one place than another than generally either

    A. The response requires little thought beyond wording so there's no real need to delay
    B. The thread is distrusted enough that we'll rush a response on the premise that an imperfect answer now is better than a perfect one in twelve hours
    C. The post is at or near the top of our unread list and we have time to kill
    D. Any combination of the above (A and C describe the event you're referring to. That thread was third in my unreads when I checked my phone at lunch and I was in no hurry to start an hour drive home)

    Regarding chastised severely, there's a continuum of mod/gm/admin wrath. The only active (there's a relatively quiet exception) senior member that is both unbanned and has seen the higher edge of said continuum in recent history is Medusa when I threatened a permaban last year (I think it was last year) if I saw a certain behavior. You were far more likely to get a pink username and a custom title of "Not A Mod" if I had to repeat myself. A ban was not under serious consideration unless things escalated in very messy ways.
