    They are probably somewhere else, moderating or perhaps sleeping. (They’ve been known to sleep sometimes. Who does that!?)

    There will NOT always be a moderator available. And if you don’t know by now, we let a lot more fly here in the forums than other places. It’s only fair that you have a safe place to say FUCK. (Okay, maybe that won’t fly, maybe it will. It’s a jungle in here. )

    **trolls**

    But also as you know, the internet has trolls.

    So if you need to summon a moderator, there are “key words” that will get our attention quicker than others.

    I won’t list them here though, because trolls will exploit this trick.
    So next time you need a moderator, ask for one, and include a keyword, say for instance, “Mods we need you. Troll”. ***It might not appear for you to see, but we will see it.

    We might not get there right away, but we will come as soon as we can.

    Edit: Thank you all for bringing “trolls” to our attention. You all rock! Keep up the great work.

    IMPORTANT:

    DFTT: Don’t Feed the Trolls
    It really makes our life easier and faster for us to clean up if YOU DON’T respond to trolls. Try your best to keep scrolling and don’t engage in nonsense. Once we catch wind of a problem, we will work to remove all parts of the conversation, including those comments from legitimate users that are engaging with bad users. It’s not always you, and if you don’t participate, we can clean faster.

    Why is my post awaiting moderation? It was just a simple reply to someone on my topic. Is it because I just joined today?

    Technical difficulties:

    It appears something has happened to the forum software so that no text box and Submit button appears in any new posts — only posts that already have some replies.

    If this isn’t fixed, we won’t be able to provide any answers, advice, or sympathy in new threads.

    I’m sorry if this isn’t an appropriate place to ask this, however, I’m having trouble posting and wondered if it was a site glitch or if I’m not allowed to post? It is happening frequently.

    Oh yeah,

    We are working on adding “Top Contributor” denotation in the forums to users who pass our smell test, and it will appear under your name. This will help on some fronts and hopefully let people know we acknowledge their participation.

    I never mean to upset anyone when we say Read HWMC, we really hope you do and it’s our goal to use that to help people understand how we do our work and how you can help. Please share HWMC with others too. We choose the format and method of conversations for reasons I won’t go into here. But please know there are pros and cons to operating this specific type of forum. Our design has flaws, but it has benefits too. We work hard to continue to improve your experience within our design.

    @igmr-admin I sure will pass it on and help educate and inform the others!

    Think maybe next season we can have a “redacted B’s coffee and smoke lounge” as a forum??

    I know myself and others that hang in the threads I make CAN be rowdy at times. And say things that aren’t exactly…..ya know, appropriate. As that was always my way of expressing myself lol

    Just a thought? Folks would know what to expect!

    I’ll email ya about it rather than forum discuss. I plan on joining fb. Just keep forgetting about it when I actually have time.

    @bautiful1458,

    What’s wrong? If it’s a tax question, maybe one of us can help you out? The forum owners are busy, busy right now

    @Bad, not sure if you are new. I had to learn this one myself. Once you post comment, it takes you back to first page. A simple back tab click sends you forward to see your comment. If creating your own topic – You mustn’t forget to add your e-add. Don’t worry, it isn’t published. So, not sure if either of those answered your particular problem?

    Hopefully,
    And all the best ..

    No problem @jamar707. A fly on the wall here for many yrs. I recognize redacted! Almost feels like an old friend. Not sure why he’s become a target. But I suppose misery loves company. And waiting on IRS to release much needed funds will have the misery effect on some! Understandably so.

    Unlike Facebook, we do our best to keep up with crap and get it removed. Thanks for your patience.

    Perfect timing! Whatever happened to respect?? I left Face book, for reasons I’ve witnessed here. I’m too old for nonsense and have enjoyed the highroad.

    Thanks Admin/Mod team ..

    For all of you having problems…this will help us track down bad actors.

    Please leave a reply with info IN the topic you are having a problem…
    –If you just say “Mods we have a troll” or “#modlook we have a problem” or something to that effect with the word troll. You can’t see it if you use the word troll, but we can if you call for us.

    Reminder, be polite, even when others are not…
    –You don’t have to call someone out.
    –Walk away and ask for help from moderators if you’re upset/angry.

    Remember, it happens to everyone…
    –Sometimes someone just loses their mind on the forums. If it’s you, please log off and go knit, or swordfight, or run, or … you get the idea. Get outside and offline for a bit.

    How do I become a moderator?
    –Don’t worry, we’ll notice when you’re awesome. If you are a regular, you are helping others throughout the forum and helping us spot problems, that will make you stand out.

    Someone’s acting really badly. What do I do?
    –First, see if you can help them. Usually, people having a bad day are not bad people, just people having a bad day.

    –When Good Users Go Bad

    #Reply Kindly
    Sometimes it’s really just someone having an off day and a gentle nudge will get them back on the path to greatness. It’s really easy to forget that text is hard to read (interpret) and people can misconstrue easily. Maybe try a nice approach.

    #Time Out
    If bad stuff is happening and a reply is filled with expletives, they need to be forced to take a time-out. Call for a mod. Once you’ve done that, it’s best to walk away from the situation, as you probably need a break!

    #When It Hit Homes
    –When they start badgering you, or if they call you names, we have a word for that: harassment and we will jump on it.
