Just a heads up to Members. The rules
have been updated as of May 1, 2008. There was a addition to the rules. Number 8 to be exact.
8) Questions or Concerns If you have a question, comment or concern contact the Moderator of the area you have the issue with. If they can not resolve the issue they will refer it to the next person in line.
Basically what it is saying is at the bottom of the forum you are in has a list of Forum leaders. If you have a issue with something that is happening in that forum, be it a flame fest or just something overall, contact the first forums leader in line. The SMods are listed there as well. So some might see b1gapl, nitestick and Trotter listed.
But we are trying to encourage members to contact the dedicated forum leaders before the SMods if at all possible. This will keep the SMods and Admins free to do their things while allowing the Mods of each are to make decisions for that area.
Now this is not set in stone. If you wish to contact someone higher up then you have every right to. There is nothing saying you can not. There will not be any punishment for skipping over a certain Mod to contact another. We are just trying to keep the hierarchy in place to allow the most efficient use of every Leaders Time.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
