Administration/Moderation Concerns?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I'm in favor of adding a "punch", "kick" or "stab" button. It's for posters you really want to punch, kick or stab. I'm prepared for the inevitable bloodbath! :geek:

Yay , I'm all for that. Lets call it a Donald Trump button.
After acquiring X many stabs, the receiving poster is then relegated to posting only in the empty black abyss of the "Business and Finance" forum section.

Maybe an "acid attack" to keep the Cambodian theme.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

I can't recall ever having that. It was just a tab or what? And when do you last remember having that?

It probably had a different name but is was there from day 1. Vlad had a post about house hunting, OD posted a recipe, AK47 wrote about moto maintanence, Joon made sandwiches. It was used to highlight the best stuff posted here.

I remember we had a "star" feature where you could rate topics, but I really can't recall anything like that. Hmmmm

I'm preferring the stripped-down version of CEO now that doesn't have any karma nonsense. I'd like if there was a feature where registered users could up or down-vote posts, just to gauge how popular certain opinions are.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Yeah, I swear we'll look into all that, it's just been on the back burner. Been a busy few weeks for me too. Hell, just got our email system up and running again with the help of UT, so now everyone gets email notifications for PMs and subscribed topics, etc, again. Sorry to all for that going down, but it's working now. (I think it was only down for about a week, but an inconvenience nonetheless.)

One big holdup with the Karma has been a hefty price tag to bring it back with all the old data, but I'm kind of thinking we might just bring it back and have to lose the old data. And I don't see why we can't have that and a simple like/dislike button too. I mean, if it's there and some people prefer just a simple like button, then they can use either one they want and ignore the other.

Kind of like a smartphone. Might come with a bunch of apps you don't use, but as long as it's not slowing your phone down or anything, no harm in having them there in case you use it later.

Good to hear your thoughts on it, so thanks.

Having both the karma and the like/dislike feature seems a tad superfluous. Just the like/dislike would be the ticket, IMO. Seems a bit precious giving/collecting karma points; this ain't 'Backslappers Inc'.
