    Moderation: questions, discussion and completely pointless whinging

    Well, MATE, the licksplittles you have moderating this BB are all affiliated by proxy to the ACF. So, I guess it is a de facto ACF BB.

    If you haven't realised, ACF has ABANDONED this BB. And yes, there will be a new set of rules which the admins and moderators will create together. This basically means you can forget your current way of posting. Better hide the screen from the kids. Wouldn't want them to see the previous few messages eh?

    Matthew's post count was 1952 yesterday, and is 1949 today.
    How can this be?
    Accuracy and reliability of these figures is paramount.
    There are people out here betting on this data, mate.

    during kevins moving of the matt v bill olympiad selection garbage to the non chess section, he deleted a few posts, so i would guess 3 of them were Matts.

    Can this allegation be true? Are you removing garbage that smells a bit? But leaving garbage than has no intrinsic value except that it pushes up the post-count by +1?

    Are you certain he deleted 3 of Matt's post or just speculating ( ) due to the difference in post count.
    The reason I ask is that he moved 3 of Matt's posts from the Olympiad thread to the non chess section.

    Thanks Bill for bringing a bit of sanity here.
    Moderators are not what they used to be.
    In view of the new policy to move Matt's posts because they are classed as clutter (rather than what the speculator thought was unclean), can we hope for even-handedness here and see the moderators move other posters clutter from the chess threads. I can give hints.

    An off-topic exchange involving several posters was moved. No posts were deleted but several were edited, some heavily.

    And yet, the mods don't seem to adhere to these standards at all

    What the hell's going on, Bruce says he'll meet me at the GG Chess centre and you close the thread already? What the hell did Bruce say to deserve that?
