Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

We do have a system of introducing yourself. In this way people can relate to what your interests are, where you are going to live, are you a student/retired/working etc. In this way we can be more supportive and more helpful, as well as more tolerant (Inshallah).
Maybe this can be a new start.

This may discourage some of the excesses of unpleasant vitriol repeatedly used by some members.

I closed the thread because it was quicker to do that than go into along winded conversation about who started it and was to blame.

Your suggestion of using the Temporary Ban is a good one and I think we will implement it.

So if anyone gets temporary banned, please do not contact the administrator, just wait it out.

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

Us old timers called it " doing a saoirse " , a short while later and all was forgiven.

Bit like green shield stamps , colllect up a few warnings and lo and behold a brief holiday.

Then surely it then becomes a simple rule infraction of 'Off Topic' Ibrahim, issue a warning, if not heeded issue a temporary ban.

It's certainly not about "protecting anybody's sensibilities" (imho), it's about stopping those who are only interested in creating an 'Off Topic' argument, for whatever reason.

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

So what do you do when a certain "mod"makes an idiot of himself by posting on the wrong thread and rather then admit his mistake, he closes the thread!
