Have the Mod's gone soft?

Appears the Mod's have given up on their strict stance on people using chat as first stop place to post.
Perhaps it was fighting a losing battle for them
Maybe the members could have assisted more with polite reminders to help?

They are usually busy moving threads to the right part of the forum. cough cough......


I don't know what you're getting at, but if a post isn't appropriate you can report it rather than a moderator reading everything to find it.

Don't know what I'm getting at.
Maybe you do not view the chat section as much as me, or notice? For a few weeks none have been moved at all .... hence my comment which still looks clear to me.
As it happens I do try to politely suggest there is a section for "This" to help them perhaps look and move themselves. Actually, a few did. Kind of backed off as everyone just replies., so gave up. Now notice its free for all again and wondered why that's all.
It was just a chat topic in the chat section. If it's the wrong section, be happy to be told.

I'm not a moderator, so don't know how busy they are. What I do know though is that they all do this in their own time - for free.

If you see anything, hit that report button. I do. That's what it's there for.

I think some people just see the report button as something to use to "grass" someone up, or report a blatant spammer account. But it can be used to help moderators keep organised and move a thread that is clearly in the wrong section. Which means it'd also help the OP as the "correct" eyes will see their thread if it's posted in the right area.
