As I said, I run a website forum myownself. I don't expect mods to be anymore active or responsive than the general membership except in cases where disputes arise. Again, it bears repeating...forums are communities. If there is a problem with engagement (or indifference) it is as a result of the whole membership. ..although mods can be influential in that regard.
you had a point in saying shitty mods lead to empty forums
(and I took that as constructive criticism, even if I don't think that our forum has that problem)
I'm sorry about that :/Well, look through the thread lists and see how many unanswered questions there are...more than you would expect, I think. Like thanking people personally, it takes time to, at least, say something to the effect that "there is no clear answer." "Or I don't know." "Or here is a link that will answer your question..." Too bad there isn't an icon ...along the lines of the "like" icon...that automatically inputs some sort of similar response. I suspect it would get used a lot by some people.
we do our best to answer questions, for everyone.
To be fair, people who have taken the time to answer my questions have, for the most part been generous and often they do provide links ...but I can't count the number of times I've followed a link to the wiki only to find one sentence basically defining a character or skill but nothing on how to deal with the issue.
Maybe that's part of the reason I ask rather than rely on the wiki.
And just to be clear, I'm not criticizing the wiki per se...it's a boon to even have one...or the people who contribute to it--they give what they can. But It is frustrating when one follows a link to find no better answer than none. In fact, if the truth be known...esp. in light of this incident...I'd rather, much rather, rely on the wiki (such as it is) than this forum, despite the generous people here.
of course you're welcome to ask.I don't believe that's true. Esp. in light of the approbation given by the mods to a blatantly personal attack--an attack that at its roots had/has no foundation, no basis in objective reality. But in this I agree with my attacker (and you)--"people are watching". It's very like what I said about "indifference" it's not about whether you intended it or not...it's about perception--"people are watching."
more than welcome.
I'm willing to let this go...but I doubt that my my level of trust has been restored nor my concerns have been taken seriously.
