New system suggestion:

Instead of having a few moderators(I don't even know if we have that many) for the entire forum, how about having different moderators, for different sections? And have a group of 2-5 ADMIN's that can run the entire forum.

This is a proven method of successfully moderatoring forums. This way, there are seperate teams of moderators for the different sections. If a certain section of the forum is lacking disipline, and people can say and do whatever they want... the team moderating that section is responsible. See how it works?

In the end, the moderation of the forum will be affective, and the Adminitrators will be kickin' back doing basically nothing.


Plus, a password-protected section would be good. That way, moderators and administrators can discuss rules and updates... along with what members need to be banned... what sections need to be reinforced, etc. etc.

I of course would volunteer to be a moderator... but the decision on that would be on whoever is the current Admin.
Zeig heil mein fuhrer . Where did you come from ?

This is the internet and a forum owned and ran by someone else, you are subject to their rules. The allowed "Freedom" is up to those making the rules. Use of private ran forums is a privilege, not a right. Unfortunately, this place has none, so you won't be hindered too much should you decide to go "hog wild."

Internet or not its like everything else these days .The minority cause a problem for the majority . The majority being people who behave in a descent manner. Another Total over reaction !

Ok, regardless of whether this is the official US Army forum or not, it is still a public forum. And yes, all forums have rules. And, in my personal opinion, there should be people that enforce those rules.

This is of course my personal opinion. I am nobody more than the next person who speaks their mind.

Dear chris

Could we have the pics back on ,please . The problem now is people are using links to show pics . So now , it is a lot harder to spot any wrong doing on the site . As you know ,many people Immediately reported the stupid actions of one ex-member who posted porn . Do you not think it is better to trust our judgement ,as we have demonstrated that we will not tolerate such posts ?
By not having the facility of pics for immediate view. For me is a backward step for the website !

Thanks Tex

P.s I feel like Jack Nicholson in "one flew over the cuckoos nest " writing this . Please nurse can we have the TV back on for the game ?

I agree with Texas,without pics we cannot show people what we're refering to and everyone has to guess, which makes life difficult and spoils the enjoyment of a decent discussion,especialy for me who likes adding pics to the military technology section.
Now i have to add links and not everyone trusts it,which is understandable.
please please please Chris bring the old system back,as Texas said if anything bad is posted the people who have been using this site for ages and truly appreciate it will report the incident and you can remove it,please dont make us all suffer for the actions of one mindless idiot.Thanks.

Over 500 000 000 people have access to this forum. Everything that one can imaging being posted will eventually be posted by someone. It is impossible to avoid.

Banning people for abuse is something that is appreciated, and allowing members of the forum to retaliate against obvious abusers is something that should be aloud on all public forums. If someone want's to express a crude opinion then they should get some opinions back. Thank you for alouing that.

I've never posted a picture, but we can see that there were piles PILES of posts here before someone conducted themselves with such a degree patheticness.

Minority ruling the activities of the majority help it stop.

I'm anjoying this forum regardless of what happens with the pictures. It's so bad in some places though that if the admin feels you have strayed off of a threads topic you get banned for a week! I'd be doomed!

Cheers
