The CEO dilemma

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

The CEO dilemma

Postby Soi Dog » Mon May 19, 2014 8:08 pm

This site was started in response to bannings and thread/post deletions by admin and mods at that evil forum. I get that. But if almost every thread on CEO is going to become a boring circle jerk between the same two annoying posters saying the same childish, predictable things to each other and derailing each thread, then you will quickly find that is as bad as over-moderation.

Here is my solution: if I put someone on "ignore", that person should not be able to read my posts or comment on any thread I start (and vice versa). I believe as of now, if I put someone on ignore, then I can not see their posts but they can still see mine. You end up with threads that show you nothing but "Poster X is on your ignore list and so their comment is hidden" or something similar.

I feel you.

Give us a few more days. We've only been up and running for about 6 days now and have been super busy just making sure the site actually "works."

I've also been too busy to follow every thread lately with everything going on, so please feel free to name the 2 posters you're referring to, as I'm not sure who you're referring to.

Again, everyone on CEO has the right to freedom of speech and to express their likes and dislikes about almost anything and everyone, but that does NOT mean will will allow a few users to ruin it for everyone else by posting insane crap in every thread.

Thanks, and more feedback on this is appreciated.


P.S. I don't know if that mod is possible, but will look into it and see if it's something we want to use.

^ Thanks for the reply. I thought it was best to bring this up quickly, before it gets out of hand. I know it's early days here and I like the way this forum is coming together so far. :thumb:

And Flying Chicken, you're coming very close to posting too much senseless crap.

Please make an effort to try and stay slightly on topic, and not just going around posting cute jokes.

Not a warning to you, I'm just asking if you could tone it down half a notch.

I'd be grateful, thanks.

That is what I like about this fledgling forum.You ask something and it is genuinely considered. Obviously not all ideas are followed through but at least they are considered.
I had the need to PM a fire breathing admin over the weekend three time and I got three very fast and positive responses.

There is a need for bone cutting banter, so maybe we should have 'The Colosseum' an area where you enter at your own risk and all gloves are off. Obviously, what happens in the Colosseum, stays in the Colosseum.

No bringing your bitch fights out into the main forums, now that would be very naughty. It would, however allow our 'Keyboard Warriors', Horace (2014) WARNING: Liam Strothers in PP, Phnom Penh, K440 (Reference to where I heard that great phrase, not a dig, btw) to enjoy their Forum Fun, without affecting others.

Just a thought

Thanks! ! We're really trying to run CEO as a community!


Re: the banter forum...

You must be reading my PM's! ! These things are already being discussed, as requested by fellow CEOers...


And thanks for understanding that we are unable to use EVERY good idea a member suggests to us, but each and every one get serious consideration and are often discussed privately.

Keep the feedback/suggestions coming, everyone!
