I'm conscious there's been a lot of eyebrows raised at the level of moderation over the last few months.
I guess sometimes you can't always see why something is moderated so I thought it was worth a post to try to explain.

We (the moderators and admins) are forming a policy as we speak on what is and what isn't acceptable. I'll publish that in due course when we've agreed it. It'll be simple. :D

However perhaps if I can paint the picture of what I expect as I've done to the mods and we'll go from there. I've said time and time again, I expect the majority of this site to be viewable by anyone in your family; kids, MIL, etc..... However I do realise that you're all rufty tufty bikers and want to swear and post pics of naked ladies and men (especially Mav :D:D ) , etc.... but the Chatter forums are not the place for this. However I DO NOT want to sanitise the forum, and I appreciate it may seem that way to you but I don't... honest!
We also have a very very enviable Google ranking at the moment where we are the number one site for all of our choices of key words, and top ten in many that we don't want. Type in F800GS for an example and look down to link 8! This generates traffic and therefore income for the site to keep it going. You guys all know that this site is now costing me a small fortune to keep going each month!
If our site gets rated by Google as their equivalent of NWS a lot of the hard work done over the years will be undone. We've also had the site banned by various work place filters before so there is very good reason that we do this.

All I ask is that humorous posts of a mildly pornographic nature are shoved in the Jokes forum. That will help tremendously because the Jokes forum isn't indexed by search engines, and you have to be logged in to view the Jokes forum.
The rest of the policy we can debate....... and I will publish here.
So how does that sound folks?
Are you with me on this? Am I being fair or just a PITA power crazed Admin!!!!!:kermit::kermit::kermit:

Why dont you have a members only password section??
Wouldnt that filter the passing viewers?
Errr that's what the Jokes forum is. Only registered and logged in people can see it.

I think whoever pays the piper calls the tune. It's your site and I think you do a great job. I've never had an issue with the moderators' work.

I second that! Great resource and top Bunch of folk. Keeping it real keeps us off the top shelf! Outstanding work all round Dave - and the other organisers and adminers - thanks for everything you do! :happy7:

A total aside is that I'm a hetero bloke with a good appetite but have never felt good about the level of archaic - and nearly always female - nudity and semi-nudity in the bike world. It's like the cliché oily garage of the 70s with calendars on the wall and leering men in messy overalls. As though without the girls holding the umbrellas, we wouldn't watch any bike events on telly... yeah, right! :D

Dave, I think you and the rest of the moderators are doing a great job, I do not think it is too much to ask for "Adult content" to be restricted and the lighter side of things be placed under lock and key (i.e jokes).. So keep it up.
my only question is what does "NWS" mean? (no joke i cant figure it).

My only comment is.. are you in the red on the site server.. if so PLEASE tell us and we will send more £!

Two types of beautiful engineering together in the same place...blissss..

totally agree with you Dave. If the site started getting bad i would probably leave. i like the fact that its clean. At the end of the day it's your creation so you say what goes. You guys are doing a brilliant job and the site just keeps getting better. In the 2 years or whatever that i've been using the site it has really come on so much and i've met the best people through it and got the best advice etc.


Keep it up:cheers:

That reminded me... Chad has helped me out again a few times recently. If every time a member helps another out, those who benefit make a small donation to the site, it should tick over nicely. Another tenner on its way to Dave. And thanks again Chad.

Ditto pretty much all the above and no probs with the levels of censorship, there has to be a limit and I reckon you strike a good balance.
