  • Question for Administrators.

    To the O.Com Administrators:

    What are your thoughs on the recent war about who posts what where?
    We (O.Com) members rarely hear from you guys. If you don't already know, there is a rash of whining going on about the "Ask a cop" section. Is there a way you can fix things so that only a verified cop can reply to a question in "Ask a cop"? And, is there a way you can delete or move posts that don't belong in the "Ask a cop" section? I, for one, am growing tired of the "I'm quitting this forum because so & so posted this here & there"

    I think the O.Com members really need your help & suggestions with this problem here.

    Thanks! JK

    Mate, we've been down this road several times and you are going to get the same answer, that is, if you get one.

        At some point, some day, maybe, we'll be able to verify officers vs. non-officers by some fax system or otherwise. Until then, its the internet folks. There's only so much effort that can be expended managing a very popular message forum. (and even then, with any verification process, there's no 100%)

        If a post is misplaced in a wrong category, should be closed, etc. simply use the 'report a post' function with the comments that will help us address it.

          Here are some considerations. To make it verified leo's would cost some money. No, it couldn't be 100% foolproof, but it would be a good start. More mods. Pick some decent people who have been around for awhile. I'm not sure who is currently a mod. If there were a few more mods, the site could be better policed. Also, with more mods, it could be easier to track the IP addresses of people suspected of coming back under new names after being banned or chased off. Just my thoughts. Also another idea, should anyone have any ideas as to how to make it work, the actual verifing of the LEO's, or making it work on the forum (I'm not quite up to speed on how it would work) could offer their ideas/expertise to make it work.

                  I posted this in response to another thread. O.COM has now spoken. It's up to us.

                  In my opinion, the title "Ask a Cop" speaks for itself. I don't believe a "ruling" by O.COM is required here. I don't think that moving it will accomplish anything either...when you click on "New Posts" they are all mixed together anyway. I have inadvertently posted in both threads because I wasn't paying attention. I try and remember now to check the origin of the post before I post.

                  Whether or not I feel that I may have something to contribute is irrelevant, I am not an LEO and I think it's a matter of respect to those that are to stay out of "Ask a Cop" and "Squad Room Only."

                    Folks

                    We could spend every waking hour of the day trying to moderate to ensure people post in particular threads, etc. and stay on topic. We don't. Even if we had volunteer moderators, even that would be a waste of their time to some degree. If a post is in the wrong area, or gets out of hand REPORT IT and it will be dealt with rapidly and effectively.

                    Overall here, these 'problem' threads total -- when reviewed -- amounted to about 18 or so of nearly 200 new threads started in the last week. And probalby a half dozen users out of over 1,500 that were active in that same time period. And posts that needed to be deleted or removed? Maybe three dozen out of over 6000 -- 6000 posts! So anyone who says things are out of hand just doesn't know the math. Thats less than 1%.

                    Sad that everyone ignores the overwhelming majority of posts that are in line great forums, and just focuses on the bad and thinks the world is doomed.

                    Let's be reasonable. A few threads are always bound to get out of hand. They, and their users, are dealt with, and life -- and the forums -- moves on.
