However with the way CAOD is run, mostly in due of overzealous ISD and DEV moderators, that single subforum is now the least used subforum in here.
Right. Against my better judgement, as I should actually close this thread for discussing forum moderation, I will give you some facts.
The CCL division of ISD that is tasked with moderating the forum was founded in April 2012. So it exists for about 2.5 years.
In the 4 to 5 years before that moderation was often scarce and erratic.
The rule change regarding who can post in CAOD and who can not, was made long before CCL ever came to be, somewhere in the beginning of 2009
And now for the interesting part: In the entire existence of ISD's CCL division, all members of the team combined posted just over 20000 times on the entire forum. Of which 67 times in CAOD or about 0.34%......
That is including
posts such as 'this thread has been moved to CAOD' etcetera which constitute to about one third of them.
Keep in mind, each moderator intervention in a thread leads to one of our team posting in it that he/she has done so. So counting ISD posts is a pretty good indication on how many times CCL had to come into action to moderate a thread.
In essence it boils down to this: CAOD has had 40 to 45 moderator interventions in the past two and a half years
That's can hardly be called over moderation now can it. If anything, it shows a lack of activity there by the posters themselves, actually leaving us very, very little to do there.
I mean come on, apart from four CCL closed threads (2 cross-post duplicates and two blatant troll ones) in the past three months there are only 29 open player created threads there, the rest was automatically closed by the forum software for total lack of activity in the last 90 days......
You want to see the place more active and interesting? Do it yourself, but don't
blame us for the current state.We
didn't do it, we
weren't there! Well, hardly....
