He needed the Ban Hammer, he was just determined to be a disruptive, disrespectful jerk.
If the users could vote him out, he would have been gone in 5 min.
One thing that I would like to add here, is the use of Thread Tags. If everyone, when you are on a PC of course, could go to the bottom of a thread, you'll see a link that says Edit Tags. Here you can put in something along the lines that has to do with the ROM, kernel, mod,... That way when someone uses the Search, it will help to narrow and define the results shown.
If everyone in this thread alone did that on the threads they frequent in a day, then the better search results it would render in the long run. Now getting them to use the search is something else entirely.
Again another well thought out post from the mobile.
The app is a convenience, yes. But it is also sometimes a hindrance when wanting some things out there too. But, there is always the ability to hit the menu and use the Show Link in Browser or whatever it is called. That will take you out of the app, then into the browser and you can use the normal daily functions. XDA is working on a better app solution, but that is still a ways off.
You know Aero mentioned that we need more Mods and that rules are not enforced. Im not going to go further into this, as that is not what this thread is supposed to be, but as I've said before, we cannot read every post on every thread. It just isn't possible. We rely on you to help us with that by using the report button. Once we know the problem, then we can action it accordingly.
But yet, not a single person reported him. I went back and looked. You know who reported him? DJ, when he asked that his thread be closed. See what I am saying here?
I can say personally, that as I kept reading on, I felt like it wasn't my place to report him. I can't tell you why, and maybe that's simply the wrong attitude. We all need to take responsibility for things we see we feel are out of place. I think a lot of people, like me, take the "better to not get in the middle of the drama" approach. But I often forget that simply reporting a post isn't fueling the drama. If it turns out the report was unfounded, no big deal, but if the mods can take notice of something before it gets out of hand, perhaps they can take action to nip it in the bud.
Very good point. I'm going to make it a point in the future to take more responsibility when a thread takes a turn that I feel is counterproductive. Maybe if I and a few other people had actually reported the nonsense in that recent thread I was referring too, we would still be having a nice friendly conversation about a great ROM.
|be nice, do not provoke the trolls, mods are here for you, no flaming, posting ediquette, proper posting, use the report button, woody is awesome|
