I know you’re not online on the weekends, but I just wanted to say something. Some people and I have noticed you seem to be... a bit biased towards certain users? I’m not going to drop names out of respect and because I can’t exactly pin down who, but you seem to be biased towards a lot of the younger/newer forumers, and it feels like us older forumers aren’t being given a lot of slack. It’s mildly annoying to see a new forumer not even get a punishment for breaking a rule when us older forumers would get long bans for doing something small (ie: referring to an outside website once or twice).
I don’t want to tell you how to do your job, because I don’t know how to and it’d be disrespectful because I’m a kid and you’re an adult. However, I have talked to some other people about this issue and they very much agree with me on it; you’re being a bit biased and it’s slightly irksome. I don’t mean to be blunt, either— ineivatably, this is going to come off as blunt or otherwise impolite, and people will likely say that you’re not being biased. I can understand the reasons why people wouldn’t think you’re being biased. I’m just offering some constructive criticism/feedback based off what other people like me (aka older forumers) have said, that’s all.
Since I want this criticism to be constructive, I think a good way to judge when it’s good to favor a certain user or not is looking at the context of the situation. Say Person A and Person B get into an argument, and you like Person A. Person A is lashing out at people and, as a direct result, Person B tried to calm them down but got mad at Person A. You shouldn’t just pin the blame on Person B and say they were attacking Person A; Person A is at fault, too, and they should receive a talking-to as well. Both of them should get a warning, not just one of them. Telling them how they could improve and giving some suggestions (ie: taking a break from the forums) is also advised. After that, see if they respond to what you said; if they respond positively, good, the argument is probably defused. But if they respond negatively and continue to be mad/lash out, I think giving them at least a 24 hour ban is a good idea. But since this is all constructive criticism, and I’m definitely younger than you, you don’t have to take this to heart.
