Re: Give Creator of a Topic moderation rights to own Topic

said by therau2000:

Hall the object of my request was to give "some" means to posters (topic owner) to keep replies "on topic"; otherwise discussions spiral into endless debate on anything but the subject at hand.

you have that power, it is called the "hey mods" link under each post. report the posts and IF a mdoerator agrees it is off topic or against site rules, then they will remove it.

As already noted though, if the user has this ability, TOO MANY will simply delete posts that they don't "like".

It's just the way this forum works. Some people only visit this forum every once in awhile, and they comment at that time on suggestions that interest them. This topic may get comments for weeks, for that reason. Nobody's trying to beat you down or inflame things if they object; they've just seen the topic and are expressing their opinion on it.

It'll be fine.

Plus we Internet people love to ensure people know they have a "Jump To Conclusions Mat" grade idea.

Like me! I have to agree with the others -- the feature would be misused. "Hey Mods" is a feature that works great and it's best if we leave the janitorial type of work to fatness See Profile and his great crew of hard working Mods.

Or delete posts from people they don't like.
