MOD POST

This message will look familiar to some users.

So, myself and the other mods aren't here 24/7 nor do we sit in every post constantly refreshing looking for troll comments. I'm not sure how some questionable posts got accepted but what's done is done, if you guys actually familiarized yourself with rule number 7 we wouldn't have any of these issues in the first place.

7. If someone breaks a rule contact a maintainer or moderator immediately through e-mail or private message. Do not try to fix it yourself it will just end up making things more problematic

one more time

We rely on the users here to contact us if they see anyone breaking a rule. Prior to the arashi post only one person bothered to contact me about oppareul.

Also, while I'm here please please please stop putting tag requests at the bottom of posts I find them really annoying. If you have a tag request PM me or email aramatheydidnt@gmail.com, I've said this many times before. It's in the profile too.

uhm....apparently "skipping it" was count to be a mistake too. Since if there's a wrong/rude title, and we didn't say anything, we were at fault. idk, I easily felt guilty :P

and the mods have real life too, so I don't expect them to react as fast as we want a.k.a like now. But this reaction is quite fast. and the mods have done good job ^^

so we have to alert everytime when something like this happen to the moods
~camon this is a comm with more of 11000 people
if they need more moods..then why dont request for people
i also feel bad for that...but..there are some people here experts in trolling others and then looking at the side like nothing happened
.. and at the beggining thats why i said ~Finally!

No, it's not the mod's job to read through all the comments- there are THOUSANDS of comments posted in Arama every day and that would be an impossible task. If people have a problem with something then yes, they should tell the mods, becuase the mods' jobs are to fix problems, not find them. Why is expecting the mods to do all the work even fair?

Also acting like "my fandom is better than yours" is not nice. No matter what your fandom is- that's why we get so much wank bait, and that's why fandoms hate each other so much.

well the mood post was b.c of a title in an arashi post...i have seen in other groups titles..but nothing happen....so~~
yeah i know the moods dont read all the coments *not so good*
but what about the titles?...

Read some of the comments from the mod in here:

"In the past some of his titles have simply been ignored so I assume the mod that approved his post thought the same thing would happen this time."

It's not so good that they don't spend hours of their time every day reading what's mostly wank and stupidity? Nope. I mod a really tiny community and even that can be a lot of work, don't heap more on them. And about asking for more mods: Not a good idea to spread a community too thin. There are already five.

The reason why the Arashi post was the one people reported about is simply becuase there are more Arashi fans. Not becuase they're better human beings. If you start implying that other groups or other fandoms aren't as good, then you're also trolling.

Arama is a spinn-off comunity from ohnotheydidnt, which specialises in snark. Simply put, it's practically an unwritten rule to poke fun at celebrities, which was why the post got submitted through most likely.

I saw the post title a while ago and didn't think much of it personally. I didn't feel it was in particular bad taste (probably, because I read it as 'Nippon no Trash' at first lol). That said, I do not see how you could expect the mods to pay extra special attention to EVERY post title that comes through their moderation queue. Having been a mod for a moderated community before, I can assure you that it gets old, fast, so cut them some slack here. The mods are doing a brilliant job, as is evidenced by the fact that goto is even making this post~

i didnt mean it like that, but if u take it like an offence..im sorry
taecish 19th-May-2011 06:25 pm (UTC)
lmao the mods don't get paid or anything they shouldn't have to read every comment
edneichon 19th-May-2011 06:31 pm (UTC)
what about the title?
atenais_pala 19th-May-2011 10:02 pm (UTC)
+1 I feel the same way.

As a fellow arashi fan, I'm embarrased when I read what you wrote that this is all thanks to Arashi. Arashi may has more fans in Arama, but it doesn't mean other artists are less important for us to care. I was the one who contacted the mod for the first time, and it's because of an AKB post. I'm not even a fan of AKB, i'm indifferent towards them, but oppareul has clearly violated rule number 2 therefore I reported him, doesn't matter who the celebrity he attacks.
edneichon 20th-May-2011 05:58 pm (UTC)
well i feel like it was thanks to arashi, cause the bomb explote with that title....i saw the situation with akb..im not a fan either but there wasnt any post related to clear the facts, its sad that u feel enbarrassed for my coment..i didnt meant it like that, i dont get it how there are people who feel the same way than i and others that dont *well baby that how the world works*, and the phrase in discution was right after i say it was sad that they realize the whole trolling sitch thanks to arashi
