I'm seeing this trend as well. Nonetheless, I can assure you guys that housekeeping is in the pipeline. Linus and myself have raised the red flag that this shall not go on. While we are trying to be 'lite & ezy' to allow more 'free discussion', we will see that it remains in the respective folder.
I'm also tired about all the TCSS going on especially with a few individuals, which I will be viewing their posting. If it proved that certain individual are only capable of TCSS, we will sent them a reminder. I apologise for not spenting as much time as I used to be previsouly over last few years, cos I'm going thru new phase in my own personal life (new job, new member in the family) and it just make my time lesser in mcf. This is why Genie47 have been promoted to Full-mod as well.
Meanwhile, I'm asking the rest of the mods (Linus and moderator) to monitor the forum more regularly.
Althought we are quite short handed, there is yet any new potential candidates worth considering at the moment.
We do receive pm requests that members are keen to be mod, we are having reservations about them. As mods will be able to see sensitive information about members (eg: IP Address), we have to be very selective as we certainly do not want to have any bad apple among the mods. Which is why, the current list of mods (Full mods) are hand-picked after monitoring them for over a period.
Thanks for posting this thread, your view will not go unnoticed.
Normal members posting messages/threads has a big part in their own role to keep the forum healthy.
Not just the job of moderator to clean up the place.
Posting unnecessary comments/flaming is intolerable IMHO. Not contributing anything useful but useless chunk of data that clog up the server.
Those not posting relevant information within the topic makes another person or even hundreds going through dozens of pages wasting everyone's bandwidth and time.
Hopefully these individuals realize the hard work behind all these moderators spending their own time sifting through the threads for such unduly behavior. Moderators could have spend 'QUALITY TIME' with their dearest family members instead.
Those were the days I missed it when MCF is truly one stop portal information for me and making real new friends.
Now I'm barely post. Most of the time simply flipping pages instead of reading it in detail. Nothing much useful to me.
Where art thou friends whom I make years ago? All have retreated. Things have changed....
