Forum rules

I'm too lazy to read all the forum rules to find out if a thread starter (not me) can ban other poster from his/her thread?

Some of the best trader/posters on the forum are being flamed on their own threads!

Brings the whole forum down several notches.

I think the best you can do is put them on "ignore"

In your "user CP" , go to "settings and options" and you'll see the "edit ignore list"

Of course, if you have me on your ignore list, you wont see this message!

Thread starters need to be able to ban nut cases from their thread...or we'll have fewer and fewer quality thread starters.

First, if anyone (thread starter or not) finds a post offensive, click the icon on the top right side of that post labeled "Report post". The moderators will be alerted to the post.

Second, yes -- the thread start can "ban" people from replying to their own thread. To do so, you must ignore that user. When that user tries to reply, they will not be able to reply. This means for the entire thread -- not just your view of it. You can ignore a user by clicking on their name and selecting Ignore from the drop down, or there is an entire thread about how to do it in the Beginners section.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Mike,

I note that a "Moderator/Administrator" cannot be put on "Ignore List". Why ?

I've had a look at the rules in the "Beginners section". The rule on "Ignore List" does not except "Moderator/Administrator". If a Moderator/Administrator's threads/posts/comments/views are considered offensive to me, then I would not want to see any of his or her threads/posts/comments/views anymore. I have a case in hand.

What are the rules that guide against a "Moderator/Administrator" that offends and double-talks in the forum all the time ? It is only "da Big Dawg" that should have this kinda immunity, because the "da Big Dawg" owns the forum, and in any case, "da Big Dawg" is cooooooool.

Please, let this rule be for all users.

Lolu

hi lolu,
moderators are here to have a look at "their" section, to take care that things not run out of control in several ways.
so its not senseful to allow the user to ban them from threads.

but on the other hand moderators also act as "normal" members with their postings + opinion.
Basicly, if you seriously feel yourself attact or whatever from someone - you can always use the "Report Post" button.
this way you send the posting with your comment to the staff here and we have a look at whats going on - we dont care about if its moderator or not.

Lolu,

I also attempted to block a moderator last week. A moderator for a different forum than the offensive posting.

It was declined.

Hello guys,

After some thought, I won't be changing the inability to add a moderator to the ignore list.

If you find a post offensive use the Report Post option on the right side of the message panel. and provide details on why you found it offensive.

Thank you,
Mike
