If we suspect that a certain mod may have an agenda in a certain thread, to whom do we address such concerns?

I would advise you to post a thread to the alert/complaint feature with your concerns so that all of Staff may review the concern.

That is the best route as we do not discuss the viability of other members (including Staff) in the public foras.

This thread will be kept open as long as the replies are civil and does not specify other members...

We all do... We outnumber them 1,000 to 1.

Basically we police ourselves(everything is logged), for the lack of a better term. No member is above the T&C, that includes Admin. In my time here we have had to get rid of one for abuse. The community comes first. I know this is a conspiracy site and some have it against the Man, that being us in this case but it's true. We don't allow "rogues" on ATS.

Obviously making your claims available to the public is what this site is all about, but there is also the avenue of directing your claim to multiple mods and obviously the site owners.

If that fails there is also a group that i fail to recall as they are no such agency but i am sure the moderators are more than capable of handling the current work flow on multiple levels.

I sent the mod in question a polite U2U addressing my concern and asking her(an assumption based on screen name) to recuse herself ans allow another mod to review the posts. Unfortunately I cannot address the issue post by post do to the deletions. I do not retain copies of my posts "just in case", as I have never had so many posts modded in one thread before. I believe in a free flow of information, and am not a fan of political correctness. I believe political correctness is one of the huge road blocks preventing us from even discussing, much less addressing the major issues of out times. Perhaps instead of outright deletion of posts, a mod with concerns could contact the poster and express his/her concerns and maybe a compromise could be reached? Unless it is just an outright hostile attack from one poster to another. I do not believe that such was the case in any of the affected posts, the closest to an "attack" would be where I accused the poster to whom I was responding of having his head in the sand.

You can mod the mod, by not coming to this website. If you are not happy you can simply leave, if everyone was unhappy then we would all leave, and there would be no website to mod. Thats how everyone Mods the Mods.

Ah, but all actions the mods make are logged, and removed posts retained for their review, submit a complaint here:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

And all of the staff will see it, and can review ALL of it.

Try it, you'll be surprised.

That's a good question OP. Many of us are curious about that. Illuminati infiltrates everything and anything that has potential.

I think modding of the mods is done very well on ATS, all the mods are different but they all share a common great quality and live up to the ATS "best staff on the internet" slogan IMO 100%

Basically, I think the mods here are great, and everything is transparent and open with each mods moderator actions recorded and open to scrutiny from other mods, and of course every post open to scrutiny by the members, which on a conspiracy forum is a hell of a lot of scrutiny


I'm not too keen on the admin though to be totally honest lol, well, not right now anyway

I've done this once and the issue was resolved pretty fast still not much need since 99% of the time a simple pm to the original mod will clear things up.
I don't like all of the rules but I do try and follow them and the mods here do a great job at keeping the forums clean.

As has been said...but a repeat for those who missed it or may not understand...

ALL actions taken by staff are seen by ALL staff. There is record of every action taken. MODs are held accountable for their actions. The best way to file a complaint against a staff action is to take it up with staff by using the Complaint Form located on the blue menu bar under TOOLS.

Staff is ALWAYS willing to work with a member.

Every single post removal and warning i have had has been at the hands of just 1 mod (who often disagrees with me in threads).

There should be a report button feature when you receive a warning or deletion so that the mod can have an eye kept on them as well to prevent abuse.

Again

If one has an issue with staff, ATS, actions, technical issues, etc use the COMPLAINT FORM to get the attention of the entire staff.


There is 100% transparency with staff. Again, every action is logged and there will always be a record of every action and communication between staff and member.

We answer to the "Mod God", he speaks to us from time to time, but we don't know who he is...

Since the complaints never get answered ,can we just send a pm to skeptic or some of the higher ups?
