Like so many of you out there I frequent the main domain forums regularly, hmm ok well two! Dnforum and Namepros are by far the best forums out there in terms of knowledge base and most importantly making sales (invariably to other domainers)
I’ve been a member of both for many years, I actually forget exact sign up dates but it has to be 6 yrs at least. Afterall that time I’ve still got 100% trader feedback, 161 positive on dnf and over 180 on namepros.
So whats my problem? Easy, is it just me or is anyone else out there feel a victim to trigger happy mods at Namepros? Forum rules change regularly, members make mistakes, so what happened to "friendly warnings" It’s not like I’m trying to scam anyone, so please mods, wake up and smell the coffee!
I’m fuming currently as I can not believe how content literally EVERY mod on Namepros is to slap 2 point / 4 point infractions at EVERY opportunity. Sure I realise forums have to be moderated but do you folks have to be so keen to throw penalty points around?
In over 6 yrs all I got infraction wise at Namepros was 2 points which are now expired, in the last month I’ve been thrown 10. Grief at this rate I won’t be able to post! OK I accept I deserved 2 of them, 2 for thread bumping (I noticed the time stamp at the last second but it was too late as I’d already hit "Post") but yesterdays 4 points for posting auction details of names I am selling for clients on Bido was a BIT MUCH! I posted in the VIP Marketplace section and was slapped with the 4 points mentioned and some blurb about "You can’t post names you don’t own in the marketplace" Fair enough but hell did you really have to throw more points around rather than send a friendly PM letting me know????????????
thanks for reading,
