This is a place to discuss Problems about the site. Because every forum needs people to discuss faults of the past, that way they won't be repeated in the future.

However these aren't "Traditional Complaints" it needs to have a good reason, I don't think there should ANYWHERE, that people just go and say "wha? y u lok ma fred?!?!" but say someone posts " Excuse me [ModeratorXYZ] has locked my thread, the problem is, I cannot infer the reason as to why, some explanation seems to be in order." If the mod locked for no good reason, the Topic maker should be justified. If the moderator has a good reason, then the guy should shut up, this is a place for intelligent discussion NOT to air dirty laundry

I don't think "Because I said so" is healthy for ANY response, if the answer would violate someones privacy(EG, Why somebody was banned) Simply say it would Violate their privacy.

I mean everyone just makes topics in this forum for any complaints/questions/issues anyway, so.

OK I'll Post the first "Complaint"

Name:The Useless Post
Against:Hawkeyeeone
Topic(s) Involved: http://www.supermariobrosx.org/forums/v ... =50&t=4651
Description:As Joey said, this is useless and only brings down the quality of the forum, however, we can still easily see it.
Suggested Resolution: Either move it to the archives or delete it.

Now to see what an admin says about it, this may be a case that does not go in my favor, but I will abide by the staffs decision as long as it is sound logic.

The archives aren't really for these kinds of topics, it's not a trash can. As for deleting posts and topics, this is only done under special circumstances or in extreme cases.

Ah, I see, then I will respect this decision and move the case accordingly, thank you.

We have an entire forum dedicated to posting complaints and questions regarding the site. We don't need this topic.

I like this idea rather than having the SMBX.org forum be filled with complaint topics. Next to suggestion topics (which should be locked since there was a topic for "what you would like to see" as well) complaint threads have just been piling up.

Is this not just the moderator control panel in a topic?

This topic serves no purpose other than to organize complaints in a way that I don't agree with.

If you have a problem with something, PM a staff member or create a topic if necessary.
