Respect The Mods And Admin.

I've found that a lot of users seem to be assuming two things; firstly, that the mods and Jessica have to be nice and polite at all times, and second that we're not allowed to defend ourselves against attacks. Neither of these are correct.

The role of the moderators and super moderator is to help users; however, we are not required to just sit back and take every bit of abuse that's thrown at us. You wouldn't expect to be made to take abuse, so why think we should? Attacking any mod or Jessica will earn you an infraction same as attacking a board user will. We will be nice and polite only to those users who are doing likewise, however we will not be drawn into fights with users who attack us; instead, the topic will be locked and the user reported. Please do not assume that just cuz you're being told something you don't want to hear, that a mod is being rude to you. The same goes for mods responding to threats; either thinly veiled, or blatent, where a user says they are going to take action cuz of a real or imagined slight. We are not being rude. We are telling you how it is. Please don't respond with attacks or rudeness.

In the situation of a board or site problem, put your case accross in a civil manner. This way, we will be able to help you. If it's a problem with the site, rest assured that Jessica will get to it as soon as she can. However, just like me and the mods, Jessica has a life outside the site and can't come on here every single day. Making attacks or posting multiple threads won't help your case; send just one PM to Jessica (support) on forums, and be patient.
