Daily moderator of the chat

Mon, Jul 25, 2011 at 8:02 PM

To whom it may concern:
I've been banned from Korn.com's chat, for no apparent reason. I got on for 5 seconds, earlier today and left, without saying a word. I did notice the moderator star next to the user name ISSUES, whom claims to be 12 years of age. I tried to log back on about an hour ago and immediately got a pop up that stated I was banned. Could someone please get a little more control over whom is in charge of things around here? Especially by someone under the age of 18, which is questionable in the fact that some that are 20 years older, can behave the same way. It's fine if people goof off and mess around with banning and joking, to let the person right back on, but if they have no legitimate reason, but to be an ASS, then further action should be taken.
Thank you,
Tammie

    I like the idea of an age restriction but it would be easy to lie. Is banning necessary, especially when we can ignore people? Maybe users should be able to label someone a creeper and if someone is labeled by a certain number of different users they're are banned?? Just a thought.

    Personally, I'm not going on chat because of shit like this.

    I think, not only because I am one of those underage chatters on here, its not entirely fair to ban members from the chat do to our age. I agree that the moderator should be over a certain age, but I know of one adult [not naming anyone] who abused his moderator status.

    Anywho, I can only think of one under 18 year old who is excessively annoying towards everyone, but that's what the moderator is for, right?

    Also, acting immature in the chat is NOT something only members under a certain age does, we all do it from time to time. And, you can block certain members even if you aren't mod.


    That's my input

    I agree with all sides of this. Nate made some valid points & I was shocked to see such young people on a chat site where camera chatting was involved. I also see Raven's side of it too. It is sad that all underage people would be penalized for a few that screw it up & I agree that I've seen the mod priv. abused by all ages & I have seen people of all ages be just as immature as the younger crowd.
    When I first got into the korn scene online one of the first people I met online Synthetic.disease (Kyle) was maybe 13? & now he's MUCH MUCH older (Haha) so it's possible for there to be younger fans interacting with the older ones.

    Harrassment, taunting and being called names by these same individuals, is not acceptable as well. I clicked the ignore button, but they can refresh and come back on and do it again. Everyone who has had an input in this, brought up very legitimate points. FA-Q, you're totally on it! It's actually made me shy away from the chat more now.

    My age restriction suggestion, was just that, a suggestion. But I do not wish to see an age restriction because of the mod situation. I wish to see age restrictions from a legal standpoint.

    Apparently Sebastien fixed the mod problems, or so I heard. Now only JD, Munky, Ray, Fieldy, Sebastiens, and grnd(ctrl) can mod, so that's a step up.

    Even if you have a star next to your name, you dont have mod powers unless you are one of those people.

    This is correct. It was an issue on tinychat's end that we (ground(ctrl)) were not made aware of. Thank you for your feedback. The issue has since been resolved.

    Actually, the person that had the star today "tested" the ban feature and say's it still active. You'd have to check with him, Timkornspace, but he says the "ban" feature is still active. There hasn't been a problem with banning lately, but now that he says it's active, the problem might rear its head again. Just letting you know that the issue may and may not actually be corrected!

    And this is exactly why we STILL need moderators that are actually in the chat frequently. Someone responsible enough to not abuse the powers of having moderator controls.

    Thank you much! Here over the last few days we've had some pretty creepy peeps coming into the chat. What other avenues do we have to report inappropriate behavior other than just ignoring a person. The ignore feature only works while the person is still logged in. If they exit the chat and come back, you have to re-do the ignore feature. If you log off and back in, again, you have to re-do the ignore feature as well. What I've seen recently is a person will go out and came back again so that you have to keep re-doing the ignore feature. People can be such morons for the sake of just being a jerk. It's ridiculous! Another course needs to be available since we can't have moderators in the chat on a regular basis.

    After today, I realized that we need an moderator on the chat. PLEASE have more than just the band (and Sebastien)!

    Today we had a guy named Aaron go on cam and play guitar. Jonathan Davis was on chat at the time and he was trying to get people to quiet down so he could show us something. This Aaron guy was bypassing mutes by leaving tinychat and rejoining - it totally makes muting pointless. And I swear, he did this at least 10 times today and people had to keep remuting him. I didn't have moderator at the time or else I would've banned him and JD doesn't know how to use tinychat controls.
    And theres another guy (Pilus) that comes onto chat almost every night, drunk, and talks trash to Korn fans - its very, very annoying.

    The thing is, is they need to have people mod outside of the fan community, unless that particular "fan" is fair, responsible and not on a power trip. That's why the other way failed. Tinychat needs to take care of this and communicate better with this site.

    Tinychat consists of a plugin that I doubt would be easy to modify solely for the purpose of korn.com. A very likely possibility is that we are going to have to begin self-moderating. As in whoever has mod powers can only ban or block with a majority consensus, and agrees to pass them on to a new, responsible mod before leaving the room so that it isn't left unattended.

    We really need moderators in the chat room! There are some people that just don't get the hint when you try to ignore them and then when you do ignore them the just exit and come back so you have to ignore them again and again. Something needs to be done so that the chat room doesn't get out of control and people can still come and chat. I don't know the "right" answer other than the fact that we need moderators that have the ability to ban people from the chat. Without it we have a lot of people coming in and harassing people and annoying people for no reason other than to be annoying or to be mean. This can't continue. Please help us help keep the chat BS free!
