Topic: I never thought I'd ask for this, but...

I just wanted to bring up the idea that the Café Community might benefit from more moderation... for example locking threads that just get completely out of hand with people arguing and getting each other worked up for no reason.

Just a few come to mind... http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=246788&forum=5&58

One could argue that Café members who do not wish to partake in or read about these frequent threads which soon degenerate into personal attacks, but I feel that the increasing quantity of these posts threatens to undermine the quality and community of the Café.

Thanks,
Maestro.

Thanks for the input - we do the best that we can and try our very best to keep our community a fun and helpful place for everyone.

It is unfortunate but not everyone has manners or is able to play nice, that is of course to be expected, especially in a forum of this size and scope.

Because we have an all volunteer staff we ask that our Café membership help us whenever possible. If you feel a thread is getting out of hand or someone is just being nasty in a post, please do not hesitate to use the [i]REPORT THIS POST[/i] link which appears on every post made on this website. This will basically flag the post and bring it to our attention. From there we can make a decision one way or the other. With over two million posts it is a never ending task for us to keep up with it all and any and all help is very much appreciated. :nod:

Thanks again for your input and we very much appreciate your continued support. :)
