Feedback / Moderators Should Delete Nasty Remarks. Why they are saving it in Off-Topic Lounge? [30]

this forum is a shame , why do they let thread like this ones in the forum

"Thanks" to you I've learned at least a few bad words in English I've never heard before because you used them so often. Now you're sorry for using them I assume?

this is the only forum i'm registered with that allows this kind of disgusting behaviour

Same behavior is on the streets and probably in your own neighborhood..

I joined other polish forums, Moderators are watching their Polish Forums. If they noticed bad remarks about people or Poland, and Polish Peopple. Or genral topics.
Moderators should deleted any threads.

They must lie to each other and their readers as well. Here you can find a more balanced and real picture of Poland and Poles because both the good and the bad things are freely discussed. The picture is not 100% true, of course, but it's more real than a picture based on censored comments.

Feedback / How to connect with who are online here ? [11]

Thank you, But there is no way to know all the online contacts ?

Based on your posts here, I'm 99.9% sure you'd be asking whoever is online for free translations. That is not a Polish definition of a 'friend.'

Feedback / Why are threads deleted or send off topic list? [62]

Answer:

Because you don't care to think before posting. For example, you posted this thread in "Everyday Life" and that means you don't care about the answer (if you did, you'd have posted it in the FAQ and Help section).

This is not off topic as it is the latest thing happening and affection many peoples travelling plans. Who decides the deletion or movement of threads to another categories?

In your post you never mentioned anything about Poland being in any way affected (and Europe doesn't always = Poland).

Feedback / Ads in posts and wrong page quantity of most threads [30]

For a script it's very unlikely it works correctly one minute and doesn't work another minute, there is always some kind of pattern. I did some pagination changes in the morning so that's most likely related to that and your browsers keeping the old settings for some reason (refreshing should do the trick).

when you click on the last page number appearing next to the thread topic to read the newest post, in most cases it doesn't take you to the LAST page at all.

It happens when you are on the index page or from other pages?

Feedback / I like the new buttons of PolishForums! [76]

Ermmmmm.......I seem to remember in the long and dim distant past , that once upon a time the Avatars and names were on the left hand of the page?

Reinventing the wheel comes to mind LOL

I guess same applies to "I leave" / "No, wait I stay" attitude :}

Or you could cap the amount of letters for usernames? I don't see why anyone would want to sign up as fantasticextraterrestrialalienfromouterspace really..

If you can sign up as "fantasticextraterrestrialalienfromouterspace" I'll buy you a beer ;).

That's the 'problem'; the only 'solution' would be to put the same width on all posts, but then there is a wide gap for posters with short usernames (or for those who choose not to show avatars in posts).

Feedback / What is your suggestion to make PF more enjoyable ? [55]

Guests can only posts in selected forums and sometimes their opinions are interesting and useful. Sometimes only one topic/news may be interesting to them and if they all were required to register then most of them would not bother. Registered users can and will also post 'crap.'

Feedback / What is your suggestion to make PF more enjoyable ? [55]

It feels any point system would be easy to break and it's better not to provide any system if it's not bullet-proof. But most important is that adding such system would only add clutter and unnecessary things to the forum; the message itself should be the most important instead. It takes less time to skim a 100-word post than to: decide if to vote, then decide if to vote 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down', then repeat it with every post. In time (possibly after a few days or so) such system would lose the most of its value because you're here to read and give written opinions rather than agree or disagree with a voting system. It's just not efficient and time consuming.

change the boring grey layout to something less boring... and then everybody should be happy :-)

Maybe except for your eyes and head ;}. Perhaps adding some colorful banners or pop-ups would help?

Clutter is bad indeed; the less clutter the better :)

install few useful modules such as user warnings etc.;

Once you have at least 20 posted messages you'll be able to alert moderators about inappropriate posts.

Whats your motivation Admin? im curious.

The biggest motivation is to make the site useful and efficient for those who want to learn about Poland and Polish people. Other things may/will come later if needed. If the main motivation was to 'make money' then the site would probably fail after a few months. The idea is quite simple - do what you are interested in and do it well and other things will come when you need them.

Feedback / The image of Poland according to PolishForums [90]

There are many threads discussing PF in this "FAQ & Feedback" forum and this is a good place to discuss it indeed. You provided your point, I provided mine.

Feedback / The image of Poland according to PolishForums [90]

The Poland of PF has an Admin (the All knowing, all wise, all powerful and omipotent, eternal).

You forgot to mention that All your posts and All posts of other members here are pre-moderated. And that Admin participates in all threads to make sure the point of the discussions is exactly what he wanted.

Based on your statement I wouldn't be surprised you truly believe in such nonsense I wrote above.

Feedback / Happy New Year to PolishForums Members from the Moderating Team [57]

What if a family member of a/rape victim or family member of a murder victim had been on to see the 'joke' one member made?

The point is that nobody was moderating the forum - or, in other words, moderators had 2 days off. Nobody was checking the messages for their content. Two days off a year don't seem too much by any working standards, I hope.

Feedback / Happy New Year to PolishForums Members from the Moderating Team [57]

Below are the messages posted or sent directly to Polish Forums moderators or admin in the last 48 hrs when the website was "abandoned." This is about how the forum would look like if total "freedom of speech" or the sudden lack of moderators and admin's interest were to prevail.

It's nice to come to the site and enjoy reading on-topic, annoying ads-free, moderated messages or articles written by paid freelancers, isn't it. Then complain (or threaten to "leave") if something appears to be wrong, just for a day or two. Or simply complain if something results from a hard moderating job.

The website is and will remain free for all members, but if you feel it's worth setting and keeping high standards it may be worth reading this page. Maybe sometimes a little more understanding for the moderating team would be nice too.

We apologize to those who felt offended because of the unmoderated posts; they have been taken care of already. We thank to those who have supported us and our views in the past.

Polish Forums Admin and Moderators

So, until this site becomes a bit less hostile and hateful, I'll be keeping away and only looking in occasionally.

Shame really, as it could be a great site.

===

Admin......feel free to remove this thread and indeed remove posting rights from the troll

===

uuuhhhhh Moderators are you going to let her get away with saying that

===

Moderators, are you going to allow him to continue with sick comments like this?

===

I've pretty much stopped coming onto this site because of this person.

Nuff said.

===

ADMIN........are you sleeping.....come on....do the necessary!!

===

I can't imagine any Polish related businesses wanting to buy advertising space on forums that carry this sort of content.....and as for voluntary donations ???????

===

Hope someone gets the message .....

this person has done 12 posts ALL the same ...

===

I wonder what the Polish newspapers would write about this forum, if they read page two of this thread.

===

Admin - Waken up !

===

"I'm hoping it's just because they aren't around at the moment, but I've sent a report anyway." -- I'm hoping you're right, because I've just logged on and what I have read here has made my blood boil

===

Reason of alerting: wrong thread

===

This thread should be trashed.

===

Because, frankly, I don't see anything funny on that page. I do see some very offensive posts [or opinions] though.

There is a limit to what some of us will put up with.

===

Yes, it is called spamming a forum.

===

HELLO ADMIN [SPAM!] It must be the same person thats posting all the other new ones

I have to agree, I am really disappointed in admin not taken action over this.
