If we're disciplined by a moderator I think we have all rights to ask what we did wrong? How the hell are we supposed to understand otherwise???

But I'm not surprised, I got disciplined for being stalked. Yup, I really could help that. Not.

I was just rereading this thread and noticed something and would like clarification on it.

from doc johns post

"Remember that discussing administrative actions in a PM is against the Community Guidelines. "

This means you ........Can Not............ discuss things with other members......

example.....

member A gets a pm from the moderators that they did something that needs to be changed

then member A turns around and pms member B....I just got this from a moderator can you believe this crap. I didnt do anything wrong......
then member B responds with yea I didnt see that as wrong either ...bla bla bla...

then member B turns around and pms member C hey guess what so and so got punished for their comment in this thread can you believe that Im on member A's side what about you...

and soon the boards are in an uproar because member A was placed on moderation or suspended or asked to put someone on ignore.

on the other side of things

from doc johns post

"Remember that discussing administrative actions in a PM is against the Community Guidelines. "


..........Does..........mean

when a moderator sends you a pm you can discuss with the moderators the situation by pm ..............with........... the moderators. This way you will know how the moderating team came to their decision. explain your side and understand why they would like you to make the changes that they are asking you to make.

am i correct in what I think this phrase means?

So the rule means you cannot talk about the thing with the moderator themselves. It means you cannot talk to another member about an admin matter.

So, the mods are reading through our PM:s. I think we should be informed that private does not mean private in this case!

Jeeze!!! You can't do this without being super clear about it! We talk about really sensitive stuff in PM that aren't meant for ANYONE elses ears!!!

I don't know, I find this rule to be oppressive and against the idea of support. Sometimes situations happen between members and we need to PM with a safe friend to process and understand it.

And as Jimi asked, why would mods be reading our PMs unless the PM in question has been reported and forwarded? I thought PM meant PRIVATE message.

I thought PM meant PRIVATE message? Not public everyone can read it message?

This is only going to feed my paranoia issues if they can read our messages

PMs should only be seen by two people in my opinion, the person who sends it (how else would they type it up if they didn't read what they was typing?) and the person getting the PM

Please don't read all my PMs, it's bad enough three knowing when I'm saying anything let alone the mods and admins reading all my PMs as well

My inbox is not for reading up what I'm chatting about with friends on the forum

Please stay out of my inbox

I'm going to treat this as a misunderstanding until we hear words from admin.

That they do NOT read our PM's.

Because otherwise I'll throw up.

Stay calm, pplz!!!

Private messages are private. No moderator or administrator can read your PMs. The only way we ever see a private message that isnít ours is if it is forwarded to us and reported by the recipient as against guidelines (e.g., itís spam, itís abusive).
