    Moderators and moderation (OLD)

    I pleased to say that I am revoking the forum moderation policy temporarily implemented by the previous management - i.e. the removal of posts purely on the basis that they were perceived as 'negative'.

    The existing and well-established forum rules - see http://www.rpoints.com/help/10/1406/ - apply. In particular, please note that it is against the forum rules to post about competitor cashback sites - whether rpoints staff are associated with them or not.

    The only posts from the past week or so that have been removed are those that have infringed the above rules, including those that are potentially libellous.

    Please use the "report a post" facility to report any suspected infringements of the rules

    With regard to moderators, I am aware that there is continuing tension, exacerbated in the past few days, between some members and some moderators. I propose to make a fresh start, with all existing moderators stepping down and then any member will be free to volunteer to become a moderator if they wish. I will then appoint moderators based on feedback from you all and taking into account the qualities required.

    Let me know your thoughts on this!

    Now that I am back from my "ban" (it was fun to see it from the other side), I would like to recommend the following as potential mods:

    Ric
    Brucey
    Nina

    I think over the years they have contributed a great amount to the forums and I think they offer a balanced view and sound head.

    Jason.

    Yep
    I'd agree with those as well

    Don't know about numbers
    But 20 mods is excessive
    considerin the amount of Forum traffic
    Prabably 4-5 would be enough
    Unless it get busier

    Why should all mods step down due to the problems between just some moderators and members ?
