wait wait wait, what now? That's a link to a 14-year-old Kingfish post that is just a link to an AP story. I don't see why anything should be removed.

Deleted a couple of them, but I'm not sure if this is one of those controversial actions that will make people yell at me, so I'll wait for input on the rest.

Could you please delete glenn's final list of metal nominations (beginning 'Those were just the ones I liked myself…')?

2019 Metal 'n' Heavy Rock Poll: NOMINATIONS thread (open until the 3rd of January 2020)

People are likely to ctrl + f within the thread before nominating and they may get the impression that certain titles from that disqualified list have already been officially nominated.

the boldface one to stay as glenn had to correct his noms as he had included singles in the one pom wants deleted

Yeah, boldface is fine. Solely the one that begins with 'Tales Of Evening - A New Dawn Awaits' needs to go.

hi mods! never used this space, don't know exactly how it works, but may i kindly ask you to consider deleting this one post of mine from tonight:

Bruce Springsteen - Classic or Dud ?

it's about a celebrity in a public space several decades ago and yet it feels like a weird violation of privacy to me, and i regret the post. no one responded to it, so it wouldn't be missed, i don't think. if this isn't a kosher ask, so be it. but if i could remove this one sentence from the public record, i think it would make the public record, and therefore the world, a teeny little bit more kind.

thank you!

fact checking cuz, Thursday, 11 February 2021 05:16 (two weeks ago) link

As you asked so nicely, go on then. The general policy is not to remove any and all regretted posts (at least partly because there aren't enough mods to handle that), but you make a reasonable case and I don't have anything else to do right now.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 22 February 2021 03:21 (one week ago) link

I'm not sure it is the job of the moderators to enforce whatever prohibitions the starter of a thread tries to impose. It's enough of a job already just trying to keep up with the usual ruckus.

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Monday, 22 February 2021 03:28 (one week ago) link

Delete mine too, but I had to.

xp - that was def worth it

sarahell, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:05 (one week ago) link

boy posts, both malicious and inadvertent, have been deleted from that thread for 12 years. I'm not sure that the one dedicated no-dude thread out of tens of thousands here should be made a brospace now that the threadstarter is no longer around w/ mod powers.

stilt in the wings (sic), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:08 (one week ago) link

better solution: petition for a board mod who will commit to enforce the "no boys" rule on that thread so the other mods don't have to deal with that. It's not a small commitment whenever that thread is active to monitor it for dude posts, whether or not "boys" are actively posting.

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:19 (one week ago) link

afaict men haven't posted on that thread for years prior to this weekend's clusterfuck but you don't seem busy so maybe you could take one for the team and do it

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:22 (one week ago) link

Sic: "boy posts, both malicious and inadvertent, have been deleted from that thread for 12 years."

So how could you tell?

This isn't me advocating for that thread to be overrun by men. It's me pointing out that ilx isn't set up to make that an easy job to enforce that prohibition and the mods should not be expected to take on that level of oversight on a single thread unless one or more would like to volunteer to take that on.

I mod on two other message boards already, cad, so I respectfully decline to take on a third mod position, but maybe you'd like to step up?

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:30 (one week ago) link

i can tell because i pay attention to what goes on here. so yes i could do it because it would take no effort whatsoever, as could the existing mods for the reason i just explained.

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:33 (one week ago) link

so yes i could do it

Is this a request?

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:34 (one week ago) link

i don't think either of us has any authority around here so no it is not

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:36 (one week ago) link

Aimless, this is like if someone were to ask to have a poll thread title changed to reflect when ballots are due ... as in it is a routine thing that "comes with the territory" ... and you suddenly are coming along making it into "a thing" ... except instead of complaining about ilx being serious about polls, you are sounding condescending and considering the context of the thread ...

sarahell, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:37 (one week ago) link

the mods should not be expected to take on that level of oversight on a single thread

have you read the title of the thread you are posting in

stilt in the wings (sic), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:37 (one week ago) link

xp

stilt in the wings (sic), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:37 (one week ago) link

btw, a mod has complied with sahahell's and pplains wishes. the posts are gone. so, this has been resolved for now.

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:38 (one week ago) link

the flowchart is literally bookmark thread > check bookmark > did a man post in the thread > if so, delete --- but maybe that is complicated for some.

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:38 (one week ago) link

how dare someone make a request on the mod request board

stilt in the wings (sic), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:39 (one week ago) link

deleting a post in a thread, if you have the link to the post in question is very quick and easy to do.

sarahell, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:40 (one week ago) link

idk, some posters say "it is not a small commitment"

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:42 (one week ago) link

in the minute since my last post, I have deleted a post of my own in an ILAFL thread and updated the Admin Log with a reason ...

sarahell, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:42 (one week ago) link

Aimless, sic was pointing out that there's been a long-standing tacit agreement that we do clean up that thread, even before we had any non-boy moderators. We don't have the person-power to clean up every thread, it's true, but "not boys" are a significant minority on the boards and having a space is important. I mean, in theory I'm not super-into the idea of people making up rules for participation in threads and then expecting the mods to enforce those rules, but in practice there are plenty of times when that's needed, and that's cool by me.

(several xposts, sorry)

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:44 (one week ago) link

Also, yeah, I kind of wasn't even thinking about the fact that this was a request made on the request forum - that's even less work for the mods because we're given the links straight up. For some reason I was thinking about the work involved in monitoring a thread for boy-intrusion.

xps again

xp CAD - I might need a deep tissue massage and a long bath because of the intensive labor required

sarahell, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:46 (one week ago) link

did a man post in the thread > if so, delete --- but maybe that is complicated for some

gender is already complicated, but it can get more complicated in a space where no one has a corporeal presence and is only identified by such labels as

masthead
or
goombah
.

but one or more of the mods has acted in this specific case, so now we are only discussing what sort of policy the mods might want to follow in future cases such as this. imo, that is for the mods to decide among themselves, if they wish.

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:46 (one week ago) link

You know I'm going to squish those goombahs.

fair; wishing the best for your recovery

call all destroyer, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:49 (one week ago) link

xp dude, pretty much the "policy" has been that a non-male will alert the mods, often with a post to the mod request forum, notifying them that a boy has posted to the thread. I think in the past 10 years, it has either been WGW-style lol action or someone like sic, treeship, or crut accidentally responding to something and forgetting which thread it was.

sarahell, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:51 (one week ago) link

For some reason I decided to check that goombahs were indeed the Mario guys who we all love to squish, and now I've found out that "goombah" with an h is actually a slur against Italians, and that "goomba" (the Mario guys who we all love to squish) is probably derived from that slur. Well, shit.

emil.y, Monday, 22 February 2021 04:54 (one week ago) link

Mario is a great Italian-American, so it's all good

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Monday, 22 February 2021 04:55 (one week ago) link

sarahell otm. Aimless, the idea that the no-boys thread needs a special mod so that "the other mods don't have to deal with that" is weird. no one is actually asking for mods to sit around clicking refresh on that thread to police it - they're asking, in the "delete this post" thread, for a mod to "delete this post." they've additionally provided justification by invoking the longstanding precedent for mods to delete threads by boys barging into the "no boys allowed" thread, which i gather has been done for ages, for good reason. are you actually looking to have a discussion of "what sort of policy the mods might want to follow in future cases such as this"? why?

Every single “delete this post” request requires discussion among moderators, and then the appointment of a new sitewide moderator, to handle this and any future post deletion requests regarding that one specific thread. This will eliminate the difficulties involved in reading and reacting to a linked post, freeing up more time for managing ruckus.
