After a few complaints from members about "over-moderation", and a discussion among the moderators, we would like to hear your thoughts.

Do we need more or less moderation? More or less rules?
Should we move topics if we feel they've been posted in the wrong place in order to avoid a mess, or give the members greater freedom at choosing where and when to open new topics?
What have we (the moderators) done wrong in the past and how should we act in the future?

We are here for you - we need the input and we can take the criticism!

I think the modding here is fine. I don't think its over moderated at all. I've been to forums with a lot higher moderation and everyone accepts and respects it there. If people have a problem here then...well, maybe they need to have a chat with the mod at hand and have it explained to them why it was closed (don't know if thats already done).

If a topic needs to be closed then thats reasonable - I've never seen any cruel posts by mods when closing a topic. I've always found that it was done fairly and with an explanation.

So to conclude - everything is a-okay with me and 'great job!' to all the mods and admins who take care of this place - I love it!

I'm not only speaking for myself when I say: I love it here.
Seriously, I can't imagine LLT being different. I appreciate the work you guys have done, still are doing.

Oh, and one more thing. KEEP IT UP!  :D

Amen to that. Their threshold of patience never ceases to amaze me. :D

We do have a policy of notifying a member that their topic was closed or moved or deleted, and explaining why.

Thanks for the feedback - I didn't expect such a positive reaction :)

In never noticed bad stuff about the moderation and I was glad that in here is enough freedom, because I was also posting some while ago on some Harry Potter message boards and they wouldn't even let us have banners in our signatures. :rolleyes:

I don't think you have to change anything, this place is great :D

I think everything is going fine here. I don't particularly notice too many Mods. This place runs pretty smoothly for the most part. I agree with topics being moved to the correct areas as well. It saves confusion and time. About topics being closed, I guess it depends. What one person feels is important may be meaningless to a mod, but then again there has to be some order. One thing I'm glad to see is the "Be right back" thread, because there were a gazillion (vacation, Holiday, going away, leaving for good) threads started. :)

Amen to that, brother! :shooter:

I don't think the moderation on this board is excessive at all. Actually, the level of moderation is one of the reasons why I've kept visiting these last few years. You folks keep the board organized and unclutttered and you vigilantly patrol the boundaries to keep out inappropriate questions. I feel very comfortable here and think that most of us discuss our differences in a respectful, adult way. Thanks for all of your hard work!
