Time for culture change at EC?

I came across a post on other forums which provided us some interesting points for reflection.

True or false (on each item): These are the reasons cited for new members to feel unwelcome, uncomfortable and/or violated:

1. 15-20 old time active members run this forum like it's their baap ki basti.

2. Moderators are overwhelming new members with dadagiri - especially you two SS and Sgars. Swami is little more understanding, (but that's probably because of the osho effect)

3. Amtha and Dirty are always yelling and daatofying new members.

4. Too much vulgur language, in general. Everybody is opening galli-galoching echarcha (the owner).

6. Saneless is being saneless

7. Dirty earns way more than he deserves at $150+ an hour.

Members from other dead forums want to come to echarcha and call it home. They want to change our culture. Maybe we could use some improvement.

What say?

Re: Time for culture change at EC?

Sgars is not a moderator.

Other mods/senior members in general complained about the laid back approach of present moderators. Not taking action is seen as ineffective, taking action is seen as aggressive.

These are not my complaints. I'm just saying that this is what I heard that new members are complaining about.

Every now and then you have to always question the status-quo, otherwise laziness creeps in and people become too complacent so from that point of view, this forum does need a "boot camp" treatment.

I mean I don't know why they closed, Jagmohan thread. There was nothing much going on, it is no threat to anyone, I'm not sure why there is so much insecurity.

I would value freedom of speech over vulgarity. I do not have any big complains just voicing my opinion. Let's freaking be little brave than being a wussy kid.

Re: Time for culture change at EC?

And the member who wrote it on the other forum is now filled with guilt and thats the reason he stopped posting here.

Its like going to a bar and start complaining that every one is drinking. The title says 'Loud and Proud'. And you find gali galoch in movies like Terminator and No one killed Jessica too.

What about levels of posting? Especially yours. I didn't know moderating was a profession, where's my pay? Where do I send my voided check for direct deposit?

I repeat .. Badi badi baate aur vada paav khaate.

My posts are best thing that happened to the board of yours

Moderating is a responsibility, if you can't do it, Pass it to someone else. I don't know whether you get paid or not, But you knew about that when you signed up, So why bring this up ?
