What is the doxing policy here?

However, now we know where he works. He is the only person who unicycles to home every day at 5pm.

And for all we know, he could also be the only person working there.

I'd bet that he won't post any ip's anymore after seeing the disconsent of members.

He still sees nothing wrong to publish IPs. That's a totally disqualifying viewpoint for a forum moderator. I am not sure I will stay here if the situation remains like this.

I think the issue here is that most here seem intent on hiding who they are.  I’ve never hidden who I am. My name is in plain sight.  If you want to know where I am, just google me. If I have your name, I can find out where you live, where you work.  It isn’t all that private. 

But I guess I understand for those who are hiding behind a handle like in the old days of BBS, not sure why this is still the practice. 

It isn’t like we are talking child porn here.  Why hide your identity?  Most don’t even put up their picture.  I guess I don’t understand.

Viewpoints and personal beliefs (up to some extend) have imo nothing to do with any qualification in regard to beeing a moderator.

Most people accept rules/defaults/guidelines without beeing convinced or even having an contrary opinion.

We have an (thanks god mostly) very unexiting voluntary job here to approve new posts. This includes to be not beeing an "excitment" for the members. So with every (seldomly happening) glitch/mishap/fault/misunderstanding rules/guidelines/behaviour is adopted to keep this issues as unexiting as possible.

As this forum is mostly very calm this evoultion is very slow as it is normally not necessary and there is noone urging to set up (more) rules and guidelines. Unless there is specific reason, as now.

I guess I was mistaken regarding the IP being visible to everyone.  I think it should be.  Maybe we would have less of the one person multiple account activity.  Most people post from their home, their phone, it is a general pool of IP's not specific to your location.  If you are posting from work, that is your problem.  I do think that IP should be included in the post like how we see it as moderators. 

OK I will add my 2 cents here. 

Like you folks can see I am a moderator too. And yes @eddiemoymoderators  see a few more things and have tools to admin the forum for different reasons. We have an IP look up to deal with spammers and harmful intent to the forum. Most members don't see this as this is role moderator have here.

Another role is to make sure things don't get out of hand. 

I think and believe that people have a right to be anonymous. But that comes at a cost, and all need to understand that we benafit all to be open, but I fully understand why someone decide not to disclose details, especially since not all countries allow EUCs. 

Normally if a dispute arise people file a report, a moterator handles it. Preferably if a moterator end up in a dispute as I view it that should be reported too for the team of moderator's to decide how to handle it. Like said on previous posts moderator's discuss different thing out of the public eye. This works really well as most members only see this as a friendly fairly clean forum. Imho this is how it should be. 

However lately (let's say the past 6 months) there have been a lot of heated posts, compared to the year before that. 

It seems like many other places people like in a black and white world, right or wrong, call it what you like. But the fact is the world is many shades or grey... and colour. 

Now if someone is creating extra account to get a view more favour or be seen more I think that is very do behavior. If this has happen in this case I cannot say for sure. I have not been monitoring this that close until I stumbled over reports generated of today. 

I could have posted this in moterator discussions too. But I choose to be open to the public eye. 

I would also that the moment for people to think about what they post and what reaction to expect from their posts. You might be right in your views or opinions but that is not always the same that it justify any type of response. After all we all share the same hobby/lifestyle/transportation/joy of EUCs.

Let's that connects us rather devide us as a community. 

You will not see me post I am sorry and we need to take actions and so furth. Reason here is this is a forum, not a company service, nor is the roles of moterator a paid job, but a role taking on by volunteers after being approached of the team of moterators. We are humans and persons. Mistakes can happen. There are things in place to deal with most situations but that means that members report things before things get out of hand. In most cases there are at least 2 to a argument/fight, anyone can at anytime step down or back off to avoid escalating debate until it gets out of hand.

Do you guys have some kind of "tutorial" for mods?

A little bit has gathered - mostly organisatorical/technical.

It would be a good idea to include this there, so it doesn't happen again in 5 years when a new mod comes around.

Is already in process as per today!

Who the hell is brockj? When I was new here I had other interests than constantly giving up likes in this discussion which has absolutely nothing to do with EUC. :efeee20b79:

More curious is, where is Crisjunlee? :efeed51798:

brockj is chrijunlee's college, they work in the same office.  he started posting when chrisjunlee started posting with his fake accounts.  he provide some proof he is real, but not sure if he messaged any of the staff/moderators from his public accounts as he offered to do.  no word from the two other fake accounts.

That's so touching, I'd also like to have such nice colleagues. :cry2: However, I would prefer them to help me with real problems around the EUC with helpful tips and not just step in when things get uncomfortable.

FYi:

It's the first (till now) written rule for moderators to not publish any private member date, especially the ip adress.

Doesn't help a lot, if the moderator doesn't understand what private information is though:

I don't think you get it: you are not supposed to disclose private information you acquired as a forum administrator for, say, account verification.
