      Bickering & insults.

      The bickering & insults have become very boring to most of us that post in water gardening. Last year I sent PM's to several of you. The bickering did stop.
      As I mentioned, the water garden forum is meant to be a peaceful, relaxing place to come & see each others pics of our blooms & ponds and to share our ideas with each other.
      If someone posts something that you disagree with, just post what works for you without name calling & insults. Let the folks that read the post decide what they want to believe or do.
      If you feel the need, just PM the person that you disagree with. That way the rest of us are not involved with it.
      I have been told that some members are afraid to post their pics & share their ideas because of all of the bickering that is going on. This is just not fair to the rest of the members who want to enjoy water gardening.
      Now that Spring is here, lets make this a fun forum to post in. Not a war zone. If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding this, please send me a PM.
      Thank you for you cooperation.
      Nancy

      FYI Mods will be editing posts of all flaming remarks and/or un-approving post that deter from topic or attack.

      Thanks for understanding

      We have just had another thread ruined. The bickering & insults have become very boring to most of us that post in water gardening. Our members are here to enjoy this forum & all of our beautiful pics of our lilies. Some members are afraid to post their pics & share their lilies now. This needs to stop!!!!!!

      Asking for folks to stop doesn't seem to be enough. Unfortunately we will need to take further steps to stop what is happening . This forum will now be heavily moderated from here on in. Please stop the bickering & the insults. This is your last warning!

      In the future when you start a thread, let folks know if you want other members to correct your statements or your info. Do so by saying this up front.

      If a member has not asked to have their threads corrected, please do not do so.


      Thank you for you cooperation.

      Bump. Making sure all members see this. Thanks.

      Furthermore, we mods & admins are not going to let the WG forum continue to be a place of the Lily Wars any longer.

      Unfortunately another bump to this thread has become needed. This is the infraction chart:


      Method Ban Period Controls

      2 Infractions = 7 Day(s) Ban

      3 Infractions = 1 Month(s) Ban

      4 Infractions = 1 Year(s) Ban

      5 Infractions= Automatic Ban =Permanent

      All infractions are permanent and never expire.

      The Forum Management Committee and quorum of Mods agree that we have had enough. Non compliance to Mods/Admins is call for Infraction. We're here to moderate to keep this forum a place of learning and sharing without attacks or insult or demise of the forum. In means of correction when mods are attacked on forum or by private messages it is due an Infraction per TOS. Personal attacks will result in Infraction. We have tried many avenues to keep peace in this area of Koiphen all have been null.

      Infractions will build to banns by your own demise if you choose to bann yourself do so. Infractions can not be given by a lone moderator there has to be two or more in agreement that this response is due.

      TOS IV. Personal attacks are prohibited on Koiphen forums. If you have an issue with someone’s idea, please criticize the idea, not the member. Non-compliance can potentially result in restrictive posting or membership termination/suspension.

      This is rule for all forums on Koiphen.com

      It seems that now we have members who are posting personal attacks by way of insinuations or making negative & offensive references of other members threads, posts, pics & ideas.
      As of today's date, no longer will this be allowed. Take your on going war to PM's or block each other.


      We have a wonderful Water Garden forum.The majority of the members get along & enjoy each others post, pics & threads. We even enjoy meeting & visiting each other's ponds & gardens.
