The entire line of discussion was removed by a Spanish forum moderator; the reason being that the role of women in India in encouraging their husbands to commit corrupt acts has little relevance to Inaki and Cristina of Spain.

I never thought it is all about me, I found the discussion of the 5 members interesting.

The thread was drawn to the Moderators' attention by a member complaint. Discussion of the culpability of Indian women in encouraging corruption by their husbands has no relevance whatsoever to the topic of Inaki, Cristina and the Spanish Royal House. After consultation, the moderator removed those posts. It was the correct decision.

An inquiry; the report button is for spam, problematic and harrasment messages. I get that, and I admit I have occasionally used it for purposes other than it was so designed.

But there is no facility other than PM'ing a moderator who might not be online, if posts are in the wrong thread, a thread has been created when it's a duplicate etc. The report button I imagine sends the message to a central point where some moderator picks it up, is it possible we could have a button for posting issues? I could PM a moderator about an ongoing off topic discussion not knowing they're on holiday for 3 weeks and the matter gets ignored until it's 20 pages long and I imagine that's techinical hassle and time consuming for you to delete instead of nipping in the bud straight away.

General honest inquiry.

On the bottom of the main page you will find 'currently active users'. You will see that most of the time a/several moderator(s) will be online who you can send a PM when needed. If you are unsure if somebody is on holiday you can add an extra moderator as BCC to your PM.

Fortunately there is no chance that the mod. team will 'miss' an on going off topic discussion that lasts for three weeks or 20 pages. Each forum has several moderators and all active threads are checked several times per day.

I was wondering, if posts that were made over a week ago could be removed, and how. Thank you in advance.

48 hours
after a post is made it becomes "frozen", after which time only a Mod or Admin can edit/delete/move it.

Use the 'Report Post' function (there is no problem in a member reporting their own post), and advise what you woud like done with the post, and why. It's pretty straightforward.

If the contents of a post become a topic of discussion within a thread it's unlikely the post would be removed unless the Mods felt that the entire line of discussion should go.

A post that may pose a threat to the identity or security of a member (for example, giving away too much personal information) will be edited or removed immediately on request, if the Mods haven't spotted it first.

Might just be me but I can't see any of the Abdication/Inauguration threads in the side bar? Is this because they're in a separate section? This also happened to be with the wedding threads in the past.

Thanks for this; yes, the Dutch Abdication & Inauguration subforum, the Madeleine & Chris subforum and the Luxembourg wedding subforum hadn't been correctly programmed.
All three areas should now be OK.

These aren't genuine issues, but I've been wondering a couple of things:

1. At the left hand side of a member's post, it says what time they posted it, but on my iPod (not on my PC), it says the member posted their post five hours before they actually did (e.g it would say I posted this at 1:25 pm when the actual time is 6:25 pm). Is there a way that I could change this so that the time is correct according to my time zone? (I hope this made sense )

2. Also, on my iPod, I cannot see some members avatars if they are tiaras/jewels/animated. This isn't affecting my avatar, but I'm just curious as to why they aren't appearing.

Regarding the abdications thread issue, I can't see them either...

Issue 1; All times on the website are GMT +1, your iPod (if you're using the app) may change the time. However if you're using the normal website. You should get the 5 hour delay. I don't know how to change it i'm afraid.

Issue 2; Animated avatars more than likely won't load if you're viewing the website on your iPod and won't move if you're viewing TRF via the app. Unless they're big images of tiaras/jewels they should load, they do on my iPhone in app mode.

I'm using the app, but I've been having the time delay for a while. I'll check my iPod again to see if it's the correct time now, but my iPod needs updating anyway so it could be due to the fact that I haven't updated it.

Thanks for this, maybe I need to refresh the page to see them.

Yes, it appeared to be a delayed reaction.
Curious, since most programming changes take effect immediately.
Anyway, it now displays, which is the main thing.

Yes it is okay to look at old threats, there is nothing wrong with that. You just can't reply to them after being closed.

I would imagine that being banned results from repeated violations of the TRF terms of service and rules. Our mods here are pretty easy to get along with, I think, but they also have to enforce the rules. Cross 'em too many times and you exhaust your privileges of membership.

Almost all banned members have been spammers (over 95%). The second largest group of bans are double (triple or more) accounts of already banned members.

So group that is left is quite small, most of them have been banned after multiple violations of our rules & FAQ (as Osipi says). Posters receive several warnings and usually one or more suspencion(s) before we decide to ban them.

In some cases however we may decide that an immidiate ban is the best option, this usually is the case with people who are here to promote one issue (f.e. : ´I am the true king of country X´) over and over and over again.
