BTW, did you read my thread?
Can you show me to a similar thread please?
yes, yes i did.
i am no mod, just a concerned member who enjoys ATS, and enjoys open dialogue on various issues.
i am going to have to go with elevatedone's suggestion on this matter.
your entire thread opening was focussed on a suggestion on how you
thought an idea would make ATS/BTS better.
My suggestion would be that threads are NOT automatiically posted to the board but instead are first censored by ATS staff, then if worthy they post
to board. Maybe at this point a Mod could suggest a few changes to make it suitable.
Although i do not agree with this filtering idea for various reasons, i do think it is too much to ask of the ATS mods, and their obligations and
responsibilities are already enough of a burden on them. Let the mods enjoy their ATS, too.
and since it was a suggestion offered that you think would make ATS/BTS a better place, i think the mod's decision to redirect towards an existing
format for such suggestions was appropriate. (since that is one place where the staff look first for such suggestions)
and yes, i have had more than a dozen of my threads locked up and/or thrown into the trash bin over the years, and i can relate to how it feels.
but you are being hypocritical somewhat. you suggest the mods edit or proof read EVERY thread submitted for posting by EVERY member, and then you
don't like it when they apply that logic to your one thread.
you will post threads in the future that are a success, i am sure.
have a great ATS day,
