And yet another suggestion for the Webmiss is that from now on when any moderator deprioritizes a thread, that moderator should have to volunteer a public explanation as to why, so that the public can be made aware that certain threads here at DUP are being censored and by whom.

My suggestion thread about plagiarism earlier this morning has already been censored from the latest topics list at the bottom of the page.

Obviously, as in it should come as no surprise, people lose interest in participating in the forum when their threads are needlessly silenced.

There are enough crickets chirping in this forum for Chrysler's sake.

We don't  need to publicly explain our every move.  Regardless of some opinions around here, we do, do our best to make fair decisions and take it up within the mod communications, if something or some action, needs further explaining or addressing on the part of the mods ourselves.  

There are plenty of things on the mod honey-do list, sometimes to the point of not affording us our own time to interact here as members, post poems, etc.   Adding in yet another duty in the form of having to type up explanations of our every move, for public consumption, only serves to act as a scorecard where those who like to keep score, can say "See!  See, I told you this one did this or that!"

Sorry, not going to happen.

I concur

also, all suggestions suggested on the suggestion thread make their way to the webmiss. it matters not if the thread is prioritized or not. simples

If a mod can take 5 seconds out of his or her day to deprioritize a thread, surely another 30 seconds typing an explanation as for why won't impact that mod's schedule all that much.  

All I care is that the Webmiss reads the aforementioned suggestion and seriously considers it, given certain threads - including comp threads - have been and obviously continue to be needlessly deprioritized as if out of some personal bias or personal gain.

But, thank you both anyway for taking time out of your busy schedules to toss in your 2 cents.
