Forum guidelines: complaints? compliments?

Forum users in the past have had many comments on the moderation of the forum--some feel it is over-moderated, some that it is under-moderated.

In order to address these concerns, we have taken a number of steps including drafting guidelines for how we relate to each other on the forum. We hope that these would make moderation decisions more transparent.

This is a chance for you to feed in directly into the moderation process and help to write the rules that the forum is guided by.

It would be wonderful if forum users could take the time to review these guidelines and send comments. We would especially like to hear comments from those who have sent complaints or compliments previously.

We do know that all would like to make this forum even better for those who rely on it so we look forward to hearing back from you!
