Weird MOD-moves

Tue Jan 22, 2019 11:23 am

Last two days I've seen a lot of threads moved out to polls and preferences. Such as the A220/757 , BA/KLM, Chinese A330neo's,

A) it's not the right thread for a lot of these topics
B) Similair topics of (mostly US origin) are allowed to stay in the Civil Aviation topic.
C) no notice or reason is given.
D) even sourced threads are moved, which used to be a sort of criterium in the civil aviation thread.


What is wrong mods? Why the double standards of late.
It's starting to feel a lot like US-based stories are always allowed, but the rest of the world can be left to linger in other (wrong) sections of the website and "rules" are strictly applied all of a sudden. The 1000th PanAm topic, lingerings about what if NW never merged or what will DAL order next are always allowed, but watch out if it's about something non-US airlines.

Sad that mods have to be like this, it seems to get worse and worse..

Very sad indeed. Copy/paste from the KL/BA topic that was recently moved: viewtopic.php?p=21030695#p21030695 . Many posters there complained about this moderation behavior, but all posts have been removed without addressing the issue.

Weird that this thread has been moved indeed. It's doesn't have anything to do with Travel, Polls or Preferences but there seem to be some very US-centric mods around here that aren't willing or able to appreciate non-US topics and move threads to this subforum that they deem not deserving of attention.

Some 'what if' topics that weren't moved:

Why didn’t AA try a separate low fare operation ? viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1413019
Could Pan AM have flown some in state domestic routes viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1397991&p=20530467
"What If?" NW/AA. UA/DL, And CO/US viewtopic.php?f=3&t=607777&p=9712477

Probably not coincidentally all about US airlines. And purely hypothetical, while with KL/BA there is an actual development with the BA CEO saying he'd still like to see a deal. Does any mod care to explain the logic and/or relevant criterium to make sense of this if it's not bias?

IMO, this site is becoming overwhelmed with the "what if" threads. Sure it's interesting to think about for about 5 minutes, but at the end of the day, it's still fantasy.

Another case in point: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1413621

Purely hypothetical and no current event or relevant new source whatsoever yet deemed relevant enough. Because US aviation?

Which is fine, but then you have to act equal across the board. Move them all or non at all.

And so of course your thread was moved...

Incidentally, before I came to this thread I happened to be lamenting the boring list of titles in civ av which seem to be the latest "what if" about possible United hubs and new routes to [fill in your US airport code here]. If you're not in the US the main forum page is dull as heck!

I was feeling the same way as OP even before reading this thread!

Indeed, one of the mods in the BA-KLM topic only said "keep on topic and open a thread if you disagree".

So I did here, but I would love to know what criteria are used for moving.

Just to be very clear, I'm not anti-US aviation, but it's weird that there seems to be a very double standard.

Actually it is in the right forum, you were asking a hypothetical question, essentially polling and asking other users what their opinion was if the BA/KLM merger went ahead

B) Similair topics of (mostly US origin) are allowed to stay in the Civil Aviation topic.


The above topics were moved because they were reported, the US ones haven't, report them and we will have a look.

C) no notice or reason is given.


All threads moved show an arrow which identifies it has been moved. We have also been on record for the last 2 years that notifications for moderating logs have not been working.

D) even sourced threads are moved, which used to be a sort of criterium in the civil aviation thread.


Just because a thread is sourced doesn't mean it should stay in civil aviation, if the topic is better suited to another forum it will be moved to that forum.

What is wrong mods? Why the double standards of late.

Speaking of double standards didn't you start this thread in civil aviation? Personally there is no US bias, we have mods from several countries and we don't play bias to a particular country. I am from Australia and I certainly do not show bias to US posters

The posts were removed because they were not relating to the topic, they were off topic. You are well aware that if you have an issue with moderation to contact us through the appropriate channels as stated in the forum rules.

As already stated the posts that were reported we looked at the ones that haven't been reported haven't. Report them and we will look at them

Okay, there's a lot to respond to here, so I'll try my best. We regularly receive complaints about moving threads and not moving threads. We've received these complaints for many years, so this isn't a recent phenomenon. I chock these complaints up to two issues: one, the delineation of our forums is unclear to many users, and two, everyone wants to have their thread in Civ Av, because that's where all of the traffic goes.

Please realize that the way a thread is created, it could technically fit in more than one forum. It's up to the interpretation of the moderator as to where that thread should best live. We don't win either way — if we don't move it, we'll receive multiple reports requesting the thread be moved; if we do move it, we get multiple complaints for moving it. It's a judgement call that's guaranteed to upset at least one person every time.

I'll start by saying that I only initiated one of these actions, but this is my take on what you're addressing.

The A220/757 thread best fits as a "Preferences" thread. It's soliciting opinions, so that one is clear cut to me that it belongs in the Travel, Polls, and Prefs Forum. Nothing about this thread fits the definition of belonging in Civ Av.

Because the BA/KLM thread is seeking a hypothetical "what if" answer, this likely belongs in the Polls Forum. I realize that many threads like this stay in Civ Av, usually because they aren't reported to us, but Polls is technically the correct place. Civ Av is intended for factual discussion and current events.

The Chinese A330 thread is similar: it is a poll question, so it belongs in Polls. These threads sometimes stay in Civ Av, usually because they're not reported, but it belongs in Polls.

A) I assume you mean forum? They have been moved to the correct forums, as defined by each forum description.
B) This has nothing to do with being US topics, so that argument is a non-starter. These three threads were moved by three different moderators, only one of whom (myself) is American. Similar topics sometimes stay in Civ Av for two reasons: one, it isn't reported to us, or two, we allow it to stay until it's reported despite being "borderline". In some cases, if no one complains, we'd rather not take action.
C) No notice is required to be given. For privacy reasons, the only user we are allowed to provide any sort of explanation is the user involved in the action (in this case, the thread starter). It is our prerogative whether or not we initiate contact with the user, but sometimes we don't have time. We are volunteers, and there are only about a half dozen of us, so we don't always have time to notify everyone for everything. It is the user's responsibility to contact us with questions. It's not ideal, but it's the only option we've got.
D) I'm not sure I understand. You mean a factual thread moved from Civ Av? It's hard for me to answer without examples.

Yes, I realize it's a double-standard, but you need to see it from our perspective.. If a thread is posted to Civ Av and potentially fits more appropriately in another forum (not an obvious case, but a "borderline" one), but no one is complaining, then we'd rather not stir up controversy (and the subsequent threads in Site Related) by moving it when no one seems bothered. However, if someone does complain, we can't just ignore it, because that would mean to imply the user who reported the thread is wrong. We're damned if we do, damned if we don't, so in many cases, the actions we take are where it is necessary.

This isn't a recent trend, I promise! These days, most of the users on this site don't work in the industry, so fantasy/"what if" threads are the primary topics on their radar. For those of us who work in the industry, there's a bit less fantasy involved! Maybe these threads stand out a little more than they used to, but I wouldn't consider it to be any more endemic than before.

It's been moved. Do you feel better? We can play this game all day long, but no one is ever going to win...not unless we blended all of the forums into one. If you think a thread needs to be moved, then report it to us. Posting about it in Site Related or stewing about how we're plotting some US aviation thread conspiracy won't generally satisfy your concerns.

In a perfect world, sure. However, there are literally about six of us, and we all have jobs in the real world that consume most of our time. I'm an air traffic controller (funny enough, I'm currently volunteering there, too), so my moderating duties here are generally done on breaks or when I have a chance sitting at home. Is it ideal for the forum? No. But it's what we've got right now. I've asked if we can bring on more moderators to help us out, so hopefully our consistency will improve if and when that happens. I would encourage you to apply. Having done this for a few years, in addition to officiating several sports for the better part of two decades, I can say with relative confidence that consistency is always the goal, but it's an unachievable goal. You can always feel that you've acted equally across the board, but a dozen people will still stand up and say you've been biased. We do the best we can while knowing we're guaranteed to upset a certain percentage. The goal ultimately becomes an attempt to limit that certain percentage.

Thanks for the explanation qf789 and acts, it makes sense. :thumbsup: I still perceive there to be a bias in relation to some topics but given what you've said it could very well be that this is with a few members actually reporting topics rather than with moderators themselves. I can't imagine there are many complaints about 'borderline' topics being in the wrong subforum so the few people that do report them can have quite an impact.

So my take from this is that the US posters are very active in reporting things (non US) that should be moved whears most others are somewhat more laissez faire about threads. Personally I hate reporting things and whilst I have reported posts I have not and probably would not consider reporting a thread for a move. I only really look at Civil Aviation and Tech Ops. The threads in other areas are not to my interest.

I also find we have a preponderance of shouty, not listening threads. People make posts based on Wikipedia range and then dispute the "facts" they have with pilots who actually fly the frame.

Since the forum became free to post the average standard has dropped significantly. You can tell when two experts are in a discussion - they listen to the other argument before responding and may modify their view. We have far too many who will never amend their viewpoint - they are right, end of.

This isn't only here. It is the effect of social media is having on the level of discourse.

Oh and by the way I do not think the BA KLM thread should have moved - but I do appreciate moderating a forum isn't easy and that you do not please all of the people all of the time.

There are a few users who account for a majority of these types of reports, yes. Forum placement matters to some users more than it does others. I think it's also partially related to the fact that many users don't seem to know that the report post function can be used for this purpose, or understand the purpose of each forum.

StTim wrote:

I don't think this is accurate. I would say close to 50% of topics reported for move come from two users, one of whom is not American. As a whole, I don't think there's any correlation at all between country and reported threads.

Obviously this is your prerogative. It doesn't help us to ensure threads are in the correct forum if no one reports it to us, though.

We've had shouty, not listening threads for a long time. It's definitely gotten worse in political threads in Non Av, as well as incident/accident threads. I blame cable news, but I don't think that's a problem we're likely to solve. We can moderate those threads into oblivion, but then everyone will just accuse us of censorship.

As for free membership — you're preaching to the choir. Obviously it's not related to this topic, but I assure you we aren't blind to that fact. We've begged for two years to bring back paid memberships, and we've been told it isn't happening. We don't have the ability to make those decisions, as we're basically just custodial staff. It has unfortunately drowned out those of us who do know what we're talking about, but I don't know of a good solution that's within our power. All we can really do is remove offensive posts, ban the worst offenders, and hope they don't just create a new account.

You and a few others have been making this claim a lot lately, but it's meaningless without actual evidence. We can't act on meritless claims.

Besides, we don't simply acquiesce to every report made to us. I don't even read the complaint until after I've reviewed the post myself. I'm pretty sure I know the user you're referring to, and I can assure you that we don't simply "go along". If anything, excessively reporting posts annoys us because they're abusing the system, so their attempt at "mastering the reporting system" generally backfires. I'm more likely to apply additional scrutiny to posts reported by some users. Not that their report may not be valid, but some people use the reporting system to be vindictive, and I assure you that we aren't too stupid to realize it.

There are only a handful of users that I trust enough not to give much of a second thought when they report posts; they were either former moderators, or they've been universally respected users on the site for many, many years.

In this age of globalization with PR firms having a worldwide presence, there is no way to prove our claims. Multiple shills geographically dispersed. sock-puppets with VPNs, there is no way a human moderator can identify or deal with it.

There are multiple insults towards US population like Amreekan or Murican, which are now widely accepted. Why?

Very difficult to express an opinion here without a paid snowflake melting on behalf of their client and report the post.
IMHO a fanboy may debate emphasizing his/her position, but will not melt so fast, throw insults and report posts.

Thanks for answering, it saddens me however that even though it might not be your fault it does seem/feel however that US reports have a different standard. Let's agree to disagree in that regard. And in order to "negate" that feeling I shoudl start on reporting on other topics. I don't know who reports so many topics, but he/she does it very selectivly. I don't want to "equall the ods" by reporting every topic I disagree with. Live and let live in my regard, it's a public forum.

What i would like however if that if you do move, that mods leave a small remark in said topic with the reason, could be nice.
As with my BA/KLM topic, you see that quite a few people disagree with the move, so why leave it to one report to move it, when other people seem to read/enjoy the topic. is one mans opionion enough to move?

How one does report a whole thread to be moved?

I'm also full of all the "Why didn't xxx order the 743?" or "Why doesn't xx fly to Asia?" topics.
I have been around a.net for more than 13 years and it was (and still is of course) a great source of recent news and actual information - directly available on the main forum page. Nowadays, it lost it's appeal to me to go through the entire forum in search for something interesting. Quite unfortunate indeed... I don't want to go to the 2nd or 3rd page, because of all the above mentioned topics.

With the same token I would like to express my gratitude for the voluntary work of all moderators!

To report a post or thread just click the triangle near the quote icon, it will then open the report this post form, there are 3 or 4 selections from a drop down menu, if it doesnt fit any of the criteria select the last option and add a comment. Such examples could be flamebait, inappropriate languange, should be in Tech/Ops, personal attack etc then submit. We will then review it

As to those all those thread's Why or what if, while some add value some dont, I have moved some to TPP forum as they are not really having value in civial aviation, yesterday I deleted another 3 threads because they were started by users who should know better and asking silly questions such as "Why didnt Loganair order the 748?". Again please report anything you think it is the wrong forum

I am struggling to understand why this thred on whether Northwest should have merged with American not Delta viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1413907 is continuing in Civil Aviation. How is it different to the KLM & BS thread?

How is this thread - yet another on why some airline didn't buy the 748 still existing on Civil Aviation.
