    If you see this, please tell others I am sending a progress report – Thanks

    If you are looking at my profile, the next two comments is the message I sent to the moderators a couple days ago… Next week I’ll send them messages explaining the unfairness of the suspension process.

    It has been my experience that management don’t take kindly to suggestions. But we gotta try, maybe something will resonate with them.

    To Moderators:

    “For What It’s Worth”

    If it were me doing this job, here are some changes I would make and the reasons WHY..

    The ‘Flagging System’.

    I’ve never flagged anybody, no matter how egregious I may have found the comment, so I experimented. I went back a couple years, found a commenter who I’m fairly sure has passed, and flagged their comment. Left it for several hours and then went back to investigate.

    When I clicked it, it turned red and stayed red. When I went back and clicked it again, it returned to white — I assume that would be unflagging it. I can only surmise what you get at your end. You probably can see who flagged it and you are alerted to examine the comment.. (I’m guessing)

    ~ ~ ~

    Having an understanding of human nature, I would class people that flag into different categories:

    1) Chronic flagger — the person that will flag any comment that causes their lips to quiver, even a little

    2) Vengeful flagger — the person who takes a dislike to another and will flag his comment for the slightest infringement

    3) Legitimate flagger — the person flagging a legitimate violation

    4) Uninformed flagger — the person who doesn’t know what flagging does, and flags to highlight the comment for themselves as a keeper***

    5) Demolition flagger — they exist and try to destroy popular contributors..Why? (your guess here is as good as mine)

    Re .#4)** — a commenter told me.. She said, she was ‘so sorry’ but always thought it was to mark comments she particularly liked, and flagged them so she could easily find them again. And she had flagged many.. Also, when I signed up with GoComics, I had no idea the flag’s purpose, so I wouldn’t be surprised if many still are unaware..

    (Continued)

    I can only imagine you people are busy as all get out investigating these flagged comments…So here is a suggestion.

    When someone flags a comment, a popup appears and says:

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Hi Pickled Pete

    In 12 words or less, describe violation of the ‘Comment Policy’

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    So what does this do?

    .1) shows them they are NOT anonymous

    .2) shows the purpose of the flag

    .3) reduces nuisance flaggings

    .4) directs your attention to the violation in the comment

    I’d venture this would greatly decrease the number of flaggings, and thus reduce your workload..

    Thanks for reading — Pickled Pete

    I am working at trying to get them to fix this process they are pursuing with this banning without any notification..

    Wednesday, (after they get caught up investigating all the flaggings over the weekend), I will be sending them information about the flagging system, how we perceive it, and how I would improve it..

    A few days later I will post it here for you to see..

    I will take it a step at a time, and hope they will see reason…..

    Thanks to you ALL, for standing by us BANISHED SOULS !

    I got your message Tuco . . . I find it hard to believe that so few people stand up for themselves or for what is right…RBION just isn’t the same, and if I get back, I will continue the struggle..

  6. 7 days ago on Ripley's Believe It or Not

    Don’t know exactly why the moderators over at Imgur treat their members like people rather than as a commodity.. Maybe they get paid more; maybe they are more conscientious regarding their work; maybe they have a heart that cares…

    But I do still like Gocomics, and I hope they fix this matter of inequitability..

    Just joined the Imgur community. Here is their comment policy. Notice how these make perfect sense, and are FAIR and JUST!

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    If content breaks these community rules, it will be removed and the original poster warned about the removal. Warnings will expire. If multiple submissions break the rules in a short time frame, warnings will accumulate, which could lead to a 24-hour suspension, and further, a ban. To learn more about Imgur’s moderation and reporting system, please visit our FAQ.

    If you aren’t sure if your post fits the community rules, please don’t post it. Just because you’ve seen a rule-breaking image posted somewhere else on Imgur doesn’t mean it’s okay for you to repost it.

    If you feel you’ve been wrongly warned, suspended or banned for your activity on Imgur, or have a general question about the community rules or moderation, please contact Imgur Help for assistance at any time.

    What I came across today:

    The quote is from Wiesel’s 1986 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”

    @mbakerbr549 – your comment “‘@magicfever495’You’re welcome.” – I give you many Likes. . . Hoping you’re feeling better, and give my best to your mum… Almost feel like I know her..

    You’ve really got to hand it to John Shirley1 though; the way he manhandled those moderators to do his bidding… + attracting those sheeple… Just goes to show how some have so LITTLE pride!
