    fyi- Thread level banning tool is now implemented

    Hi All,

    We now have a new tool for forum moderation which allows us to ban specific members from specific threads. I'm sure we've all seen when such a tool could be useful.. for example someone is baiting or trolling people in a thread and trying to derail the thread. Two or Three individuals get into a power struggle in the middle of a thread discussion which then derails the thread. We can now put a stop to this and keep threads on track. This is quite a powerful tool and I've discussed with the moderation team that it should be used as a last resort. It is for those situations when good threads go horribly wrong due to one or two individuals. We can now remove them from the situation and allow other thread participants to continue enjoying the thread.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    P.S. if you feel someone should be removed from a thread use the 'report post' button located in the thread postings. Then tell us why we should consider it.

    Yeah, a striking resemblance to Salvador Dali's unknown brother...

    I have this fantasy that the British Colonel from Monty Python will step into some threads* and stop them because they're just "silly".

    * not this one, of course ...:rolleyes:
