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.

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.

for me a good mood can take care of every single thing in a comm, if u consider that 5 moods are ok for this type of comm..thats ur opinion...andi accept that,
i just gived mine....and well if u feel like im saying that arashi fans are "better human beings"..when i havent said that....i think u are going to another side of the story that doesnt exist....
the only thing i said was b.c of them the mood found out the problem

"i saw some other groups being trashed too (i dont give coments in groups that i dont follow, so *whistle*)..but well this is all thanks to arashi *tun~tun*.."

Um what is this then? So, other groups don't have good fans who will report issues, only Arashi fans will?

And they will take care of every single thing in the comm, if people tell them the problem. It's like with a doctor- if you don't go to him when you're sick, he can't help you. You have to tell him that something's wrong.

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~

mmm....its sad that many people in this comm feel offended then for all this trollin
i think we can play around..but so much bashing....not sane
i think there are boundaries

Pretty much any kind of 'poking fun at celebrities' is playing around here.

MTE = My Thoughts Exactly.

OP was agreeing with you...
edneichon 19th-May-2011 06:56 pm (UTC)
i think i press in the wrong reply~ lol~
vivizanessafan 19th-May-2011 06:51 pm (UTC)
well, it's just that the whole mess in that post is obviously not something we should be proud of our fandom imo :/ and your cmmt is among the reasons why other ppl say "arashi fans are annoying".

i'm not trying to lecture you or anything, hope u understand :)
edneichon 19th-May-2011 07:04 pm (UTC)
