User should be notified when his/her posts are removed by mods

Mods removing offensive posts is necessary, in principle.
It is only fair that the user should be notified when his/her posts are removed though.
Thx!

We have a warning system in place and will use that to give a friendly notice (zero point warning) if necessary. However, I don't like to use it that often as people think they are getting warning points due to the nature of the messaging system.

However, when a massive clean up, for example, is needed, in which many posts are removed there is simply no time to be able to send each individual a private message.

I appreciate you taking the time to comment, as usual.
However, I wish there was another mod responding here, as there is a conflict of interests when you are the one who has been removing many of my posts for no obvious reason.

There are 2 benefits for informing users WHEN and especially WHY a mod decides to delete their comments:
1. Fairness
2. Education

This should be more important than wasting time typing "thank you" in countless threads.
But of course, notifications don't raise the level of "expertise".

Thank you for your reply.

I am not the only mod who has removed your comments; I am not sure why you think that I am. If you notice that posts have gone missing, please know that it is not a personal issue. Likely it is because another member mod alerted the team for concerns such as rudeness, off topic, trolling, spamming, or any other number of reasons in your (general "your", not you specifically) responses.

You may want to consider your posts carefully before responding, just as I am sure that you would like for people to offer you the same courtesey.

In line with all my comments that are always civil and helpful, I am providing some constructive criticism here.

My suggestion is for the SD software developers to handle a post deletion the same way replies are handled. For the most part,this should not require additional work from mods.

When a post is deleted, the author would be automatically notified of WHAT, WHEN was removed, and BY WHOM. As for the WHY, the user can message the mod privately to find out the reason, if it's not obvious that any SD rules were broken.

Hi,
Finnz may have removed the majority of your "removed" posts but that would simply be due to timing. Mods work a schedule so if you post a lot during her schedule she would be one of the ones handling the majority of them.

Mods have a lot to do and taking time to notify members when they remove posts they'd never catch up. If you are antagonizing members, calling them out and name calling we assume that you know it's inappropriate and they will likely will be seen, MAd and removed.


If you wish to discuss further you can PM me or email support@slickdeals.net
