The following post has been continually and maliciously deleted from the official BYOND "community" forums by the very admins that it is trying to put a stop to. If the BYOND staff feel that they need to further overextend their reach, in order to hold on to the power that they so eagerly abuse, and decide to delete the topic here, in these private forums, then I will reluctantly create an outside source to host this material against them.
If you agree with the points being made here, and want to show your support, you can reply to this post with a comment or simple +, or, if you wish to remain anonymous, send me a message over the pager!

Moderation Guidelines Post:
I request the feature of some publicly established (strict and logical) guidelines for the forum admins to follow. I explained such guidelines as the best method in another topic, but it was deleted.
This vague threat by one of your "employees" should be more than enough to get the point across of just how broken the moderation around here is: "As I can't lock the topic, if you guys get much more uncivil I'm going to move it somewhere I can lock it, and lock, or just plain delete it."
You could also just dismiss all of your moderators. There are far better systems for handling such management than placing a handful of biased community members above everyone else and letting them do as they please.
Open a support ticket. Feature Requests still isn't the place for this.I will not pointlessly file a support ticket for a feature request just because it threatens your position. Aside from the fact that I feel they never even get read, I previously explained to Lige: I would take this to the top and all, but the top is just as corrupt. Rallying the community against the current mods (which won't take much effort, because they pretty much already are), is the only way to get anything done.
Spam posting this won't get you anywhere. It's been deleted for a reasonThe reason it has been deleted is because you are incompetent, maliciously power crazed, and generally corrupt; and you don't want such benefits to come to an end. Re-posting it will hopefully accomplish bringing an end to such abuses.
You're deliberately and admittedly spamming. This is unacceptable.I am not spamming this any more than any other feature request, bug report, or forum post in general should be considered spam (Sending the same message indiscriminately to large numbers of recipients on the Internet.)
If you are referring to me re-posting it as "spam", then this is only due to your malicious attacks in deleting it. The post is never appearing more than once, due to its previous versions being deleted, so there is no issue. Stop deleting it (since that is not an acceptable course of action to begin with), and I'll stop having to re-post it.
Trying to justify your actions through spam and personal attacks is a no-no.Again, this is not spam. If you consider me stating blatant facts as "personal attacks", then perhaps you should fix the personal behavior that you seem to already knowingly consider offensive.
If you moderators truly wanted to better the community, which is what you are supposed to be doing with your positions, then you would stop deleting this topic. Ah, deleted again, I see you clearly don't care about any such integrity, only about maintaining the power that you so freely enjoy abusing.
I can keep re-posting this just as long as you moderators keep maliciously deleting it. If you have a problem with the claims being made here, or some proof against them, then feel free to post a response like any respectable community member would.
