Mods Locking Threads Unnecessarily 

Post#1 » by JoeyMorgan619 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 4:07 pm

There was a thread created about Steve Kerr appearing to be saying something negative about Draymond. A certain mod decides to lock it so that "no one wastes another second lip reading" as if it's a waste of time or dumb to even consider that he actually said this. Yet the very same topic is a headline on the front page! So why is it that the story is worthy of the front page, but because one mod deems it unnecessary to talk about, now nobody is able to discuss it on the GB?

I agree with you and that topic was re-opened.

Also - when a user disagrees with a mod's action, they should feel free to message them directly to express their opinions. That's probably the fastest way of possibly having an action reverted/analysed.

The Orlando Magic forum is like Nazis. They want to try to make a single topic 100 page thread and it’s impossible to keep up with anything.

Yes, that was everyone’s chief gripe with the Nazis. Did you PM someone for an explanation though? Or did they just do something you didn’t like and thus became nazis?
