FR ADMINS, PLEASE LISTEN
We are scared and confused, and we dont feel safe on your forums anymore.
While I understand that due to the high traffic the site is getting, and the active userbase, you needed someone to interact with the community, Aequorin is not doing the job in a way that makes us comfortable, or feel safe.
She has had in numerous times deleted or locked theads for minor things, some not even in the TOS and only because she feels like it. In the new CoC, she has explained a little, and then stated that we were breaking the rules by discussing the new “Do not talk about how the threads are modded” rule, which… is part of the things we were supposed to be able to discuss since it was part of the new rules. The thread was supposed to be open until the 9th. it was closed in a mere 4 hours, and people are still scared and confused on what they can or cannot say on the forums.
We dont feel like we can talk to any of you about this, becuase a lot of you have closed your public inboxes, and with the new rules, we are effectively silenced from discussing anything the mods do. This isnt a good business plan. This is terror tactics. The government can do anything and if you speak about it, you will be silenced. All complaints are sent to the government, and will be silenced.
The contact us is all we have left, and we dont know who runs it, how it is being run, or even if we will get a response. We dont know what has been answered, becuase we will likely not get any public answers. So the Contact us will likely get flooded with repeat questions, and that will take time out of being able to take care of other user’s requests that need attention too
There is a lot of distrust towards Aequorin becuase of how she mods things, which is with no explanations, warnings, or regards to our concerns. IF she doesnt like things, it will get closed, and now we cant even ask about what we did wrong.
We have been forced to take on the actions of someone under bullying. Taking screenshots. Recording the fact that we did in fact say something or ask something in a way that was not against the TOS. Becuase for all we know, it could be deleted without warning, and our voice or question would cease to exist, with no documentation.
Please, we need a new community manager. We need someone we can trust to listen to us and answer us who wont abruply lock threads without warning and wont allow us to even question what is going on.
