Please see the list of our current mods and their responsibilities below!
- Deleting Comments
-Moderators have the right to delete comments that violate our community rules
-They may only delete comments on their own board, unless asked to help elsewhere by KR
-Posts that should be deleted:
--Spam-We all know what this is
--Harassment-Attacking another member. If the answer is YES to any of these questions:
--Does this attack another user?
--Is this post malicious in any way?
--Was this post created with the main purpose of stirring up other users?
-Online Vandalism-Posts to up a member’s post count
-Personal Information-This includes name, IP address, telephone number, address, email address, work information, etc.
--Impersonating other members/Knot employees
-Posts that will not be deleted
--Members who are disagreeing with each other
-Members have the ability to anonymously report posts
-Mods and admin will review and take appropriate actions
-This is NOT a dislike button
-What should members flag?
--Harassment-if you feel a user is harassing a member to an extreme level
--Impersonation of Other Members/Knot Employees
--Obvious violations of the Community Rules (click)
- Closing and Deleting Threads
-Threads will not be deleted
--Spam -Threads will not be closed without going through the process laid out below
--The only exception to this are zombie threads more than a year old
-As an FYI: Threads that are moved are not closed (redirect links are left in order to prevent too much confusion)
- How Threads Can Be Closed
-ANY mod may issue a warning to a thread if it is starting to get obviously out of hand. Mod will briefly explain some of the violations taking place--but will not call out specific members on the thread (they will be PMed).
-Mod will flag comments violating TOS (if it hasn't already been done) and contact the mod of that board (if necessary) and KR
-KR and mod will review thread and delete reported comments that violate TOS--at that point, if there are 5 or more violations after warning was given to the thread the thread will be closed
-Please, respect the mod that issues the warning on the thread (whether they are the mod for that board or not). This is not a threat, it is a courtesy so the thread will not escalate further which can result in the thread being closed, issuing warnings to members and, in certain extreme cases, members being banned.
