I just glanced at the Site / Forum Feedback and Help and I noticed a question about where did something go.
That's not in context of what I'm about to say but it goes without saying the confusion isn't great.
I post a topic in the wrong place.
Moderation notices and moves it.
Usually the mod will add a post saying that they are moving the topic because it is in the wrong place and they will provide any relevant information. Where its going and why it was the wrong place.
....erk. Hold on a second. I posted a question. I go back to the forum I remember posting it in and it isn't there... well I'll be stupefied. Ok, I'll click on my userprofile and track it back because I haven't been on in a few days. Found it. Apparently I put it in the wrong place. *blushes*
If a mod moves a newly started topic because it is in the wrong place they should notify the poster by pm with an all mod default message.
Your topic at http://www.rpgrevolution.com/forums/whatev...inthewrongplace
was relocated to the Category/Forum/Subforum.
If you have any questions as to why your topic was moved please review the moderation judgment in the topic.
It takes less time than moving the forum does. And I'm sure (haven't seen the client side) there would be some feature you could create in the forum function that notifies a topic starter that their topic was moved. This would be an autonomous utility that would make mod PM unnecessary but resolve this issue.
There are no bad mods, but a good mod would notify a member if they were being effected. I don't mean to tell mods what to do, I'm just suggesting a new way to handle the users and let them know that you're there not as police, but that you care.
Wow, I did it again. Addressing issues I find relevant and I haven't even gone back into the forum for deving.
Lets build a stronger community people.
