Hey DDO!

I hope everyone is well and had an enjoyable and safe holiday.

I figured I should give a brief update on some of the things going on lately.

I'd like to thank Mikal for the work he is putting into several projects and I look forward to continuing to work with him. He mentioned most of this in his recent update, so I wont rehash those things.

As he mentioned, we are continuing to work on the Read Me sticky, so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas, they are always welcome to contact either of us.

As for the other issues of late, I think everything that needs to be said, has been said, so I don't feel it's productive to add my own thoughts to it.

Tangentially to that though, is the issue of focusing on some of the greater problems the site faces from a moderation standpoint. I generally like to be discrete in my actions and do not want to become an overbearing presence or over-moderate the site. But there are things I believe can be improved, and Bladerunner has been a great help so far on that end.

In addition to the assistant moderator Bladerunner, I have asked Whiteflame to be a forum specific "junior moderator". His role will be entirely to oversee the religion forum and to deal with the issues there.

I am fully cognizant of the fact that I have been stretched too thin to deal with much of what has taken place in the religion forum and that has to change.

Let me be clear here, this isn't about controversial topics or heated conversations - those are absolutely fine and that is not something that will be changing. This is about the absolute worst conduct that happens to take place, and that is in the religion forum. It's constant personal attacks, nonsense flamewars, and the very worst that this site has to offer. I am often embarrassed by what I see, and that is now going to change.

I have complete confidence in Whiteflame to oversee that forum and to communicate with members that continue to be a problem. I know he will keep me updated on anything that need my attention, and that whatever he suggests will be thoughtful and prudent.

While everything ultimately will be my call, I know that Whiteflame is a responsible and thoughtful member that will take his responsibilities as a moderator seriously. I know that he understands how I approach things, and that with his eyes being specifically dedicated to improving that forum, that a positive change is imminent.

The days of the wild west religion forum need to stop. The types of things I have seen there in just the past week are an embarrassment for the whole site and those guilty of it are now going to stop, or they will be removed from the site.

I know that Whiteflame is serious and dedicated to this, and I'd like to thank him for his assistance.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

Thank you.

Will a feature be added to notify you when a reply was made to a forum topic. In mafia that would be helpful. Just a simple notification of x replies made to this topic since you last posted or something. Instead of multiple ones. There are
probably some other uses for it tho

Anyway, thanks for the introductory post, airmax. I have no doubt that this is going to be a difficult process, but it does need to be done. I haven't spent much time on the religion forum, but I'm well aware of the kinds of issues that pervade it. I'll do my best to improve on how it is progressing and try to make it a receptive place for discussion and debate to occur on a reasonable level.

I would like to help in making the religion forum a better place. How can I help?

I would always appreciate more help in monitoring the forum. If you find anyone doing something that violates the TOS, send me a message about it and I'll investigate. I'd extend this same message to anyone who wishes to help: talk to me first, rather than immediately reporting it. I'll do what I can, and if there's a need, I'll pass it on to airmax for further action to be taken.
