If a moderator is going to lock a poem, wouldnt it be fair to the poet or prose writer that they know. and receive an email. so they dont have to search for their poems, and perhaps before locking a poem you could contact the poem, and figure out what is the meaning and if they would mind editing it?

If you only understood my pain then maybe you could learn to be my friend. Be there. My crying shoulder. The smiles. And the caring i need to survive.

Yes, Ina, it would be. Being a moderator of this and the Lounge, I try to do such, if an email is shown or is valid. There have been a few times when this has not been the case. And, though there are many mods and deputy mods, we are all human, and therefore, make mistakes or may not have all the time needed to send messages to those with such posts.

Another facet, which you might not agree with, is that not everyone checks their email...heh..I know I have between 3-5 email accounts scattered around, and don't check all of them..only the primary two. And some people may open an email account just for the purposes of registering a name...then will no longer check that email account, or will delete it, making contact with them very difficult.

There are also several chat applications which could be used, including the ICQ pager. But, again, there are some who set their preferences to not allow for ICQ pager messages, or may have settings on other programs not to accept messages from people not on their list. See how convoluted and problematical alerting the poster can be?

And that's just for the two discussion forums I moderator or help moderate. I can't even begin to elaborate on the sheer busyness of the main poetry forums.

Well said, Persnikitty - We do indeed email a poet to notify them of actions taken on their posts.  If that fails for any of the above-mentioned reasons, it's the exception more than it is the rule...

Yup...I either email..leave a reply in the thread...or leave a general reply before locking or deleting anything...

It's definitely not the rule for any of our mods to fail to do one or even more of the above

I apologise for any mistakes that were made.

We try to get it right but nobody's perfect.


Sorry,

I'm really not trying to be sarcastic here. Really, I'm not. I'm quite serious.

Don't post work that needs to be moved or deleted and there won't be a problem with being notified. You deal with a handful of Moderators, but each of our Moderators has to deal with a bucketful of threads. Mistakes are inevitable - on both sides.
