Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

Feedback Thread for the GAA Forum 2020:

    The sanctions strike me as very lenient and must be time consuming for mods.

    Surely if someone has been yellow carded multiple times they're just a bloody nuisance at that stage and of no benefit to the forum? Any rational being would change their behaviour after, for example, 5 yellow cards.

    The most thanked post on the thread was mine saying that sanctions were too lenient. I don't care either way as I'm only an occasional poster on one thread but it seems the whole exercise was redundant if nothing is changing.

    Fair enough killbillvol2.

    See post #19

    "Regarding the sanctions. A red is classified as 2 yellows for the purpose of the Totting up, it will not necessarily mean a ban automatically.
    General Boards.ie rules and sanctions are of course still to be followed.

    It only takes one click for Mods to see any GAA sanctions a poster may have and it is easy for us to apply a ban as a result.
    Some may think the Totting up system is a little 'soft' but it is a Long 12 months remember and if introduced, it can be 'tightened' next year or thereafter if the Feedback from posters wish it"

    I agree with ShamoBuc's sentiments and would ask for your forbearance for the next 12 months and we can see how things go.

    If the sanctioning system are not working out or deemed to be too lenient it can be tightened up.

    It is a positive development that there is now a formal system in place for accumulated sanctions.

    Same is easy to understand and brings an element of clarity and consistency to the sanctioning process.

    Just a query about mods deleting posts. I didn't see it mentioned in this feedback thread. If mods don't like a post, can they just delete it and not explain why?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 9,275 Mod ✭✭✭✭ seligehgit


    Good question.

    My personal preference in general is to put in place a reason for the post deletion.

    Posters are always welcome to PM the relevant moderator if they've a query as the reason for the post deletion.

    Yes, they could if they knew who the mod was! When a post is deleted, I don't believe there's any way of finding out who did it?

    I don't think it's really a big thing, just maybe put a rule in where a mod has to explain why they're removing a post.

    It would solve any claims of bias if they were removing some posts and leaving others.

    In general, that is a good way of doing things. However, it can become a burden on moderators, particularly if there are repeated incidents of post deletions e.g. if a mod had to explain themselves every single time they deleted off-topic posts about Dublin dominance.

    I will feedback your request.

    Just to confirm cards will be reset to zero at the start of the calendar year January 1st 2022.

    However any bans will carry over into the new calendar year if applicable.
