I don't see why members can't just post correctly?


Shush, that sounds like something Mitt Romney would say! /s

I agree with what the members are saying. Make it default.
Mods... Normally pretty smart idea to take smart ideas and give them a little thought, instead of going into defense mode and trying to make the members feel like dip****s or ass's... Just a thought though.

^ No disrespect -- can't you simply make it so the the prefix box is checked by default ?

Would save a lot of troubles. :)



How hard is it to check something, you want them to kiss your boo boos too?

Excuse you.

We're adhering to the site rules that we have been asked to enforce. Those rules can be changed if deemed necessary, and we can discuss the possiblity of that happening. But there is no need to insult the staff, and consider this your gentle reminder that publicly insulting/questioning moderator decisions is frowned upon as well. The OP was respectful and logical in presenting their case--please do the same.

Thanks.


Yeah, you've been excused sir.

how hard is it for you to understand that humans aren't perfect and that we sometimes forget little details

really though, is making the prefix option checked by default really such a big deal?

A number of times i have checked the box, and it still wont put it as the thread icon.

My recent threads are prime examples, the one i did regarding the iOS upload test was tagged, but didnt show. When it was moved to site and forum it is showing as correctly tagged.

You have to consider that most mods are adolescent males who are experiencing their first bout with what they consider real power. The owner(s) of the websites forget that it is the community that makes their site popular, many times web site owner(s) forget that (ask Digg).

What makes you think that? I don't think anyone on the moderation team is below the age of 20.

It doesn't take a perfect human being to take notice of this (see below). I don't see why it's so hard for people to follow some simple guidelines. The main reason threads are closed is to reinforce these guidelines. If I made a thread and it was closed because I didn't tag it correctly, I'd be sure not to make the same mistake again.

Also, I don't know if it's possible to check off the tag prefix option by default for specific forums. It may be a global setting that affects all the forums.

And therein lies the problem. We don't need all threads in all forums using this setting; the tagging system would become an irrelevant mess.

The tagging system is already an irrelevant mess when I see plenty of tags that only the words, " on, in, was," and so on. There are plenty of post that are adding every little stupid word as a tag, which doesn't help the system in any way.

This is exactly why it wasn't a quick 2 second fix like everyone assumes.

Its fixed now ONLY for the jokes forum (id 48), only took 45min... So gonna go ahead and close this. If you have another issue, make a new thread.
