READ THIS POST BEFORE POSTING YOURSELF.

(Invalid img) Read this here before posting. It addresses most questions many members of you have.

This topic was inspired by Slavik's first Q&A.

(Invalid img) Here, you can ask about moderation. What type of questions?
-Moderation Procedures
-Reasons behind rules, changes, and general actions on Naruto-Boards
-Ideas as questions

(Invalid img) Do not ask about:
-Things already explained in the Rules or Secrets of Moderation topic linked above unless you are asking for a specific detail.
-Certain action of certain moderators. (Ex. Why mod XXX ban YYY?) Pm those questions.
-Unbans for certain members.

(Invalid img) Do not post your opinions here. This is not a topic to express if you think mods are cool or not.

(Invalid img) Global Moderators or myself may answer your questions after I have unlocked the topic. GMs, contact me before posting so answers to questions aren’t made twice over.

(Invalid img) Topic Special Rules:
1. "Bad" posts are going to be deleted on first sight.
2. Answered posts may be deleted as well.
3. Reposting deleted posts is a good choice if you want a forum ban real fast.
4. DO save your post before posting it, using Notepad for example. You don't want to lose your well-written wall of rants about staff and it will be deleted for sure.
5. Topic will be unlocked only when I am able to moderate it.
6. Topic can be locked temporarily anytime. (Ex. When I see too much spam posts in a short time)
7. DO save your post before posting it, or at least open the topic in a new tab to see if it is locked or not. It will help you to not lose your important question.
8. If my timezone is bad for you and you can't add a question here, PM me and I will post your question as well as my answer in this topic.
9. Rule 15, discussing moderators and their actions applies here too if that is not clear enough.
10. Some questions may remain unanswered.

Basically just understand this is a topic for questions. Polite, about certain facts.
I don't want to see questions ended "but this will be deleted as moderators are corrupted". Yeah that post WILL be deleted for sure but not because anyone is corrupted - only because you are breaking topic and general rules

When you comment a mod's action in addition to your question, which is against rules, it will be deleted as well.

How is it different from making a single topic on each question? That you are sure your question will be seen and most probably answered by the current forum leader


Show that you can form mature question, and you will get mature answer.

Could you tell us some of your future plans for the Boards?

13. Do not advertise or promote other websites/services as a whole. [Falco made topic about this ]
Why sites are advertised on the naruto-boards , still ?
This acc should never be used again.

At this time there is not much planned. Some more tweaks on the Fanclubs section, maybe some staff hosted tournaments but nothing major is planned. I will be going through member posted Forum Ideas and Suggestions soon.

Just a bad post. One with malicious interrogative intentions, rudely asked questions, or simply a post that has the characteristics mentioned in the first post of what shouldn't be asked for example.

I am slightly confused what your asking about but I have an idea of what you are. Linking other sites, forums or games is still prohibited. What was changed recently was the ability to discuss defined competitive games on the forums. The definition of competitive games was changed.

Would you promote members making topics in the Forum Ideas and Suggestions section or directly contacting a staff member?
Taking into account that the suggestion is well thought about and concise.

The moderation staff is not responsible for the loss of accounts. Stolen or otherwise. We do not have the capability to verify the account's owner with complete accuracy and therefore have chosen not to aid in the recovering of member accounts due to member abuse of the verification system. There is nothing the moderation staff can do to prevent the loss of accounts, but spread words and messages on how to prevent those losses.

This sounds like a specific moderation issue and should be handled in pm. Shoot me a pm about it if that is the case.

No. Our moderation staff team at this time is filled to the brim and we are set for a decent span of time. People who make good suggestions or ideas are not rewarded with promotion. It is about helping the site in what ways we can. It does not mean that making good ideas and suggestions will not reflect well on that member either.

At this time we have 6 including myself. Including myself, our maximum is preferably 7 and out minimum preferably 5.

With the big change that recently happened in the staff team, including new admins (for example, yourself), retired admins and new moderators and a global moderator, what should we, players and members, expect from this major change?

Over time is each section going to have its own banner? Like for the miscellaneous section?

As the admin now, do you think you will be offering more forum related prizes in certain contests, such as banners heading the sections?
