Journal: Slashdot admins keep me dangling!

Journal by asciimonster

I've posted a poll a few weeks ago. It's still marked pending. I know that polls are held open to use in bad times, but there are limits. I also know it's a dog-eat-dog world out there and only the ones better than the best gets posted, but this anticipation is just killing me.

I understand the admins want to have a backup in post-free times. Taking into account the volume of posts nowadays this is very unlikely to happen. So just reject when you are not using it within 2 weeks. If need be, you can always re-accept the entry previously marked "rejected".

It might also be worth considdering adding a small comment as to why it was rejected. So moderators can say, "sorry, not enough room" or "Sorry, those bablefish-translated pages just cannot be read".

Is the slashdot moderation system grinding to a halt? Well this copy&paste says it all:

How does this get modded up? The sentence doesn't even make sense! Do people just get mod-happy when they see that maybe Fox is being made fun of? Even if it's in a sentence that a 4-year old could write better?

Jesus Christ people.

I agree with you. I'm a Dutchman and all week the Dutch media covered the American elections. It isn't even our president for crying out loud! By the way, there the Dutch media always paints the Amercans as dumb sheep following a completely biased news channels. Which just cannot be true. To be short, I got fed up with it all. I spoke my mind and accepted this would get a mod "-1; Flamebait".

English isn't my native tounge, so sue me... :-|

Journal: Karma Modifier

Journal by asciimonster

When I was posting a relpy I noticed in awe that I had been granted the option of a "karma modifier", meaning that I would get an extra karma every post I've made. Shure makes you proud doesn't it? ;)

But since people cannot mod me higher than 5 points shouldn't I wave this honour and post at just 1 point? Surely, my posts are good enough to grant met the 5 points anyway! >;-F

Ah! The difficult choices in life!
