Default The standards of this forum.

Ray is a man of high standards in this forum. He's a person who's carried on what MerciAlizee and Arronius tried to establish here. Me....I'm a loose cannon. I try to maintain good standards, but when I see things that bother me, I'm too quick to go off, in a bad way.

We or maybe I should say I, try to go against things we see that led to the demise of AF. One of those was the language that we thought wasn't acceptable to Alizée and so, not acceptable to this forum.

Unfortunately Ray, being the only active mod, has to bear the brunt of disciplanary action in this forum, even when such action may have been instigated by someone else, such as me, which I often do.

So members here need to realize there are many members behind the scenes, trying to keep up with keeping this a site, Alizée would be proud of.

I feel the regular long term members are aware of common civility between members. We've had a few and I mean VERY few members in the past that come here to spread their drama. Lucky for us they've seemed to move on to other venues to entertain themselves.

Some people just need to get over that this forum is all about Alizée, and not about them and the legend in their own minds of how important they are to the board. That has probably been the biggest obstacle to many individuals not playing well with others on the board.

Age and geography can have a lot to do with what a person feels is appropriate or inappropriate. On the one hand there is forum tradition, but there is also the constant evolution of standards, and this community is a global community.

I've never interacted with Brad or Ben... I arrived too late. But I have looked back at old threads and posts and have tried to pick up on the way they wanted the forum to go. Seeing their comments at times of conflict. The guidelines here intentionally aren't too specific beyond no politics and no religion. We depend on the members to use their best judgement when posting to maintain the balance but at the same time sometimes stand back and see how something plays out. Often times something questionable will quickly fade away on it's own without intervention. That seems to ruffle the fewest feathers.

All the members are part of the community and activity is the best way to keep it going. Over-active moderation can stifle participation.

I remember those days. Wasn't fun at all. Trying your best to make the right calls and keep the forum "in shape", just to have all that effort thrown back in your face.
