If you think there's a problem with the rules I suggest you direct your concerns politely to Michael.

there is no need to close threads. we can talk about this in public. i think it would help make the board a bit more transparent to be able to see why a thread was closed or a person was banned, had an infraction, etc. we don't need this to feel like a secret police thing.

I don't feel like there's a "Secret Police" thing going on. It's clear to me why your two threads were closed...the same goes for most people who are banned.

Okay, this is getting out of hand so it will be my last post on the matter. If you, Otomik, have any more to say then you take it up with Michael via PM. If you keep creating new threads to circumvent thread closures or to complain about mod activity, we will have to start moderating your posts.



When threads are closed, a reason is almost always given. If it isn't, it's because we're human and we forget sometimes, so the OP can PM us and ask and we will add the reason. The reason for user bans is never going to be public because it's nobody's business except the user, the mods and the admins. Infractions will also never be public because it isn't fair to the people involved. If you have a problem with this then speak to Michael.
