When sent a PM to edit or correct a post by a Moderator the PM should be answered as soon as possible. If no answere from a PM then we will try to E-mail that person.
There is no set time limit .. Just a base of when we think you have had enough time.. A no answer from a PM or E-Mail will be taken as a "NO"
Moderators will not delete a post...nor will they edit a post.
Except for the following reasons:
When you post documents that have "Secret" stamped all over the place.
When some one is inflating their post count. Then they will only combine all the post into one.
A Moderator may also edit a post if the person who posted, edits his post, and says "deleted", or "aaaaaa", or nothing for the sake of readability.
Finally: Just to keep the flame war down.. Then the moderator will add to the post the following message.
"MODERATOR: [THIS POST IS IN VIOLATION OF FORUM RULE OF "-----------------" PLEASE EDIT IT TO MAKE IT ACCEPTABLE]
Moderators will inform the rest of the team when they have moved, locked and or deleted a post..
PM's to calm down don't need to know about unless it blows up.
Moderators can lock a thread with out prior notification...
