Warning!
« on: June 18, 2021, 08:19:46 AM »
In yet another terrible decision and injustice, I have apparently received a warning:

Quote
AllAroundTheWorld,

You have received a warning for breaching rule 1 (no personal attacks). Please try to discuss ideas, rather than the individuals who presented them.

Please abide by the forum rules, otherwise further action will be taken.

You may remind yourself of the forum rules here

Regards,
The Flat Earth Society Forum Team.

Now obviously this is another blunder from the mediocre mods, but point of order. How am I supposed to know what post I've been warned for?
Am I being stupid or is there no way of telling? Usually the post gets moved to AR or a comment is made in the relevant thread but I can't see anything, so...

My actual suggestion - when these PMs are sent could a link to the relevant post be added so the person can see what ridiculous decision has been made they're being warned for.

Ta.

I dislike the cowardly nature of the warnings. Who gave you the warning? Why is it anonymous? Why does no one stand up and take ownership for their actions?

If you have great power, you should also be charged with accountability.

Ordinarily, warnings come with a link to the message in question, so your main suggestion is more or less there.

There is a small UI bug which makes this difficult to do on mobile and sometimes forces us to issue a "generic" warning, so on rare occasions this information is missing. That will be fixed Soon™️.

In addition, we normally follow up with a post or PM, and you can always simply ask if all of that has failed (as you have today, and I hopefully helped to get to the bottom of it).


In short: AATW, we agree. In your particular case things didn't go entirely to plan, but this happens very rarely, there's a clear way out of it when it happens, and once I've found a moment to work through that bug it'll probably become a non-event.

EDIT: To give you an idea, this is what the standard message would look like if I were to warn you for this thread's OP:

How about this one?
Either way, both SteelyBob and AATW, are guilty of not providing the name of the author of this piece of trash table, something I thought TFES was keen on avoiding. If you cannot provide proper references, both of you should stop posting.
To be clear, I don't know what this link is. It was poorly formed, it was fairly obvious how to correct it but you were apparently too stupid to work it out so I helped you.
The fact you couldn't work out how to correct a simple URL does not fill me with confidence that your maths is correct, but I'm sure you're about to present it any minute now...

I hope you’re ok.
Th*rk is the worst person on this website.

It was me btw, based on a post someone had reported. Usually I make a post in the thread mentioning the warning, but this time I didn't because I didn't.
