Wings900 Member Notice

To all Wings900 members,

As the majority of you will have noticed, there has been a recent influx in the number of hostile and derogatory posts in the Wings900 forum, stemming from newly created accounts. The moderators of Wings900 are well aware of the issue, and this message is on behalf of the team.

We request that members do not respond to posts that are obviously negative in nature. If you believe the post was written by a hostile/spam account, report it through the reporting tool on the left hand side of every post. By responding to the post, you complicate the clean-up job for the moderation team, and add fuel to the fire.

Instead of getting into arguments or fuelling conflict, please focus on posting high quality content that adds to the value of the Wings900 forum.

Thanks!

I'm not quite sure I understand what you are saying. Are you saying that you have reported posts and that nothing has been done by a moderator in response to that?

Believe me, they do read them. Sometimes the action they'll take is to monitor the situation and make sure it doesn't get too out of control if it is something relatively minor. If they determine it does, or is well on the way to do so, then action is taken.

Re: Wings900 Member Notice

WestjetGuy.....Since "the moderators" have voted you as their spokesman can you let us know when the database is going to be updated on a regular basis? It is currently months behind? Also why is that "the moderators" seem so distant here and rarely answer or correct any issues that occur?

Hi there. I've looked into your case a bit. I can't find the member you've mentioned on either the current or banned member list. Could you please PM me, and I'll see if I can help you out with the situation.

Correct. For every reported post, it is set up so that an email will be sent to me immediately with the details of the report. From there we can act as we best see fit.

Indeed we do.

I'm curious why you insist on adding quotation marks when referring to the moderator team. Regarding the database issue, I'll pass the message on to the appropriate parties. The database fix isn't a simple issue, although I acknowledge the frustration that you (and many other) members hold. And rest assured, we're here. Moderators such as furryforest, Charter, mmu69, myself, etc. regularly post and visit Wings900, and are always on the watch for any problems. The majority of the problems are actually fixed quite quickly if reported, on more than one occasion I've attempted to respond to a report only to realize that it has already been dealt with. If you have any current issues, I (and the moderator team) would be happy to address them.

Re: Wings900 Member Notice

WestjetGuy......If your information is true then where is Lou and the folks that are updating the database? It hasn't been updated in months.
