Re: Thread closings are disappointing

the normal rpm box is the one that has the brake rotor on the input..
thats why we are getting one build for revolts hopefully...
the normal rpm box brake rotor would interfere with the exhaust of the revolt...

And I expect the same from others if I am on the other end of the stick. We are all grown adults and if the sometimes rough comments bother you, you should simply not respond or do not read the thread. Running and crying to a moderator to get a thread pulled because you do not like what is being said is crybaby $h!t and there is no place for that on forums. The transmission thread is a prime example. RACERS are breaking parts RACING a vehicle is not built for racing. Any racer who breaks stuff does not blame the manufacture they correct their problem by any means neccessary and keep racing or stop racing. They should not blame Redline. I believe this should play out on the forum so people who have concerns can see all of the comments play out and make their own informed decision. Or add comments that may open the eyes of those having issues and help save them parts without spending any $$$$. Good luck to all of those having gearbox issues and we all hope you find a resolution in the new RPM box. But my guees would be those will be getting broke as well. I have seen a lot of feed back on RPM boxes and they are not bulletproof either.
The above quote is well stated by Sandracer. I believe that the closing of the "Pictures of Completed Turbo Install" was not warrented. In my opinion this is a Perfect example of the "Political Correct Mania" that is spreading through this country at this time. Although some of the back and forth posts of the thread were perhaps not polite and maybe some ego coming through, I do not think they were particularly offensive. Also editing a post of a member, in my opinion, is just wrong. I believe that if a post is really getting out of control , the members themselves will police it adequately. If we cannot express ourselves, even if not polite or Politicaly Correct without being sensored, then the Thought Police can not be far behind. Sensoring the flow of information and opinion will not, in my opinion, force all people to be friends, nor will it force those of us that value unrestrained discourse to be "Politically Correct". So here I go. This situation Sucks!!!!! and is a pile of Male Bovine Manure.....for those of you who are not politically correct that's Bull Shit!!!!

Re: Thread closings are disappointing

Klemdotter, I understand your point of view, the mentioned thread has been re-opened.

Redline UTV forum itself is has always tried to maintain the goal to be a family oriented environment were a young redline owner or the kids of redline owner parents can log in and obtain information in a positive oriented manner. That is what makes this forum special and sets it apart from many other buggy forums, and that is why many people enjoy the well greeted welcomes, the positive environment that it has and the respectful & trustful members that this forum posses.

Myself, being the only current active moderator, I enjoy participating in forum discussions and always try to maintain a neutral point of view and try never take sides towards any particular party or member. I will moderate your posts the same as I will moderate any newcomers post or any well known longtime member and will try to not let anyone be disrespected. With that said, I moderate posts using the following quoted forum guideliness which can be found on the following link: Redline UTV Forum - Redline Riot & Redline Revolt Community - Forum Guidelines

"In an effort to make RedlineUTVforums.net more enjoyable for our members, we have adopted the following simple posting guidelines. We’d prefer not to moderate a single post, but not all of our members feel that way. We’re trying our best to find a happy medium but as this forum grows many situations will need to be handled with care. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding in creating an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone." "Respect other members. Do not flame, badger, disrespect or taunt anyone on the forums. If we feel a thread is getting out of hand we will close it or delete it. You can, and will be banned if you continue this type of behavior. The off road community is an awesome group of people who generally want to learn, develop and expand, so we don't expect this will be a problem."

-- When I moderate post, its usually to delete spam, or to bring down the tone or level of profanity used to a more acceptable level at the same time trying to maintain the family environment with out the distortion of any information. nobody here is forced to be friends, and nobody here is forced to post a reply, but it is expected from them when replying to a post to do so in a civil respectful manner, which I think shouldn't be hard enough. lately the threads have been getting a bit out of hand (which is expected every once in a while) and I have left people to solve their own issues... but it grows old when you see that its the same people over again fighting over the same issue.

Tough I'm just a moderator, I do feel that the community is the owner of the forum and they will turn it into what ever they want it to be, im just here to support them. If they wanna turn it into a forum like the rest of many other buggy forums,then so be it, I'm not opposed to that.

But in the meanwhile, as per my duty in this forum, even tough I know you guys can defend yourselves, I will not let you or any forum member be disrespected.

Any input or opinions in regards to my reply or the moderation methods that I use, are welcome as long as they are addressed in a respectful manner... I will review your suggestions and will try to apply them for the best interest in the Redline community...

Re: Thread closings are disappointing

There was no profanity!
There was some jousting!
Did someone get their feelings hurt?
I understand that being a moderator is a thankless task! Sorry to hear you're doing it alone.
Posts have been edited!
Posts have been deleted!
Closing the thread was completely uncalled for!
This Forum has been close to dead until the turbo installs started out here in Oregon.
Judging from the number of views, and posts, the turbo install threads have helped to rejuvinate this forum.
The "TURBO" thread needs to be re-opened!
We would appreciate your doing this for the good of the forum!

In closing.....Klemdotter for Moderator

Dude?
The last word we had is that the thread had been closed. You can turn the switch off, or on, at your disgretion. The point was made and you apparently made the right decision. Thank you.
As for editing my posts...you did so on one occasion, not a couple.
And for the deleted post, all I did was agree with another member's post and ask if he thought his post would be edited as mine was. What is wrong with this? You did edit his post! You apparently have a problem with your authority being questioned.
You told me to contact you if I had a problem with anyone on this forum by using a PM. Your choice is to keep this matter public, so I am replying in public.
As far as being hurt...HA HA! When someone refers to me as a "smart ass", you had better expect a responce! When someone calls one of my good friends the same thing, you will get a responce. When someone says they can beat someone else in a drag race when they have not even seen the other person run, that too deserves a responce.
Just my opinion, which happens to be the same as several of us Oregonians!

Re: Thread closings are disappointing

Mayhem, your welcome for the thank you.

I apologize for causing you any inconvenience when reviewing your posts and moderating them. My first instinct was to close the thread when I reviewed the last posts when people were being told to "shut up", my first thought was that it was just gonna get worse and I decided to prevent that by closing the thread (as per my job here in the forum). I deleted the post since I was about to close the thread, and the post was not relevant to the thread topic. you might be right that I might have problems when my authority is questioned, Ill try to work on it . Its true that I did PM several individuals about keeping it cool here in the forum and like it was mentioned, its expected to respond to others peoples posts in a civil manner, even if you are responding to back up your bud.

I like this thread, even tough it goes against forum guidelines, it reminds me about who polices the police and helps to check on moderators to stay back on track. I have no problem with it being public in regards to me. in regards to the subject of being hurt, it was a sarcastic joke. I was trying to lighten up, since I'm assuming that's what you guys want me to do when reviewing posts.

Never the less, I apologize for any other disturbances that I might have caused to you that were not mentioned. If that ever occurs again feel free to send me a PM or let me know via this thread.

Mayhem for Moderator....

Re: Thread closings are disappointing

Like I said before...being a moderator is a thankless job. I appreciate your time you spend doing this. I believe we all do. Thank you.
"Mayhem for Moderator"? Purty funny!
My mention of Klemdotter for moderator was serious since you said you were doing this alone. Having someone to bounce ideas off of could make this task easier for you. I don't know how he would feel about this, but it only takes one to get the ball rolling.
In the meantime, let's keep on burning those fossil fuels in the name of fun and hope that Redline can get back on track, to help further the number of enthusiasts to join us. I know...I run a RZR...but I run with a bunch of "Revolting" friends! At least I am powered by Weber. Guess that makes me a half-breed? And...I like it!
Have a good day, and let us know if you ever make it up to Oregon. It's always good to meet a forum member in person!
