OK, well fair enough I suppose. Personally I wouldn't see any harm in putting some of the information in post 1245280 into a sticky thread somewhere, so that newer members have a clearer idea of how things are managed here. Before this thread I wasn't aware that "QI Moderator" was an account that could be accessed by several different members, for instance. It helps to explain quite a lot.

While I'm on the subject of making things clear to new members, is there any chance of a update to the "How to Use the QI Forums" post (post 33152)? It refers to "I Series Talk" when we're now up to P, and it invites people to take part in "Qing Qong", which no longer exists. (I remember spending some time looking around for it when I first joined and giving up in exasperation.)

Well this is old.qi.com...

I'm sorry if you found my post insulting, I did not intend it to be. As has been pointed out by a number of people, this forum runs the way it does because the vast majority of us either like it like this or don't care either way. As I approach my decade on these boards, I cannot recall anyone else being motivated to complain about any issue concerning the running/moderation. This might suggest something to you.


Yes, it suggests that most of the members are quite happy to acquiesce in the sloppy running of the forum. Which is a bit of a shame in my view, because I think it could be a really good forum if run properly.

Never mind. I've been on worse run forums before. I'm a bit disappointed by the cavalier attitude expressed in this thread though.


Perhaps we don't agree with you that it's sloppy. I know I certainly don't.

But then I also know that you don't particularly care what anyone else thinks especially they don't agree with you.

I have edited post 33152 in line with some of GuyBarry's suggestions, which I thought were reasonable.

Folks, will you please go and check it out and make sure I haven't said anything wildly inflammatory?

Yes, Jenny, that's precisely the sort of thing I was looking for. Thanks for taking the trouble to edit the post.

Great work, Jenny.

Could I suggest a paragraph to be added to the "The Forums" section, in between the para on Quite Interestrings and the para on Series Talk.

This para is to concern the Sooper Seekrit Stuff forum, which was created for reasons outlined by dr.bob in post 765243. It was my idea, and when I suggested it to dr.bob he said words to the effect of "I can make it if you'll look after it", since spam was rampant at that time and we were keen not to give Jenny even more work.

The para reads something like this:


Sooper Seekrit Stuff is configured to be invisible to the Google crawler, for which reason it does not appear if you are not logged in. It is used mainly in December each year in connection with a quiz competition, and for this forum only the main moderator is suze.

Looks good to me, though I see you expect us to behave like adults.

I gave up hope on you years ago tets. Fortunately you are rather nice :-)
