Hi there chiram.

Firstly I'll point out that starbucks_mafia is quite correct, posting this kind of issue in Scripts & Popups is wrong and you should deal with any queries you have over the decisions of moderators in private message, if it bothers you that much. I am replying here because anyone else who has this issue can now see at least my stance on the issue. This is in NO way some sort of "official" post though.

People who volunteer their time here to help others are truly appreciated. The forum couldn't run without the expertise of certain people, and it's great that people do that. However, everyone, and that includes moderators, are bound by basic netiquette. Being very helpful cannot be used as an excuse to occasionally break the rules, simple as that.

Which brings me nicely on to answering your question! There are very few published word-for-word rules on this forum. Never has been. I'm not gonna change that either. When someone is made a moderator they are not given anything like a "code of conduct" or anything. We're just people who are trusted by Khaled and/or Krejt to help with the maintenance of the boards. This means that moderation is very liberal. All decisions to lock threads or delete posts are based on common sense and how any single moderator sees a situation at the given time. It's really that simple. So far I think any regulars would agree that we've done a pretty good job, some long-time regulars have even noticed trolling has decreased.

Nevertheless, I can assure you that no moderator will delete your posts because they "feel like it". The specific thread I suspect pushed you to post this thread was locked for several reasons, which I politely outlined in my post. It's quite obvious a respectable forum isn't going to help with "war" scripts. I don't see the need for anyone to post a sticky explaining that, which links back to the idea of netiquette. Secondly, the original post is over 2 years old (so the chances of helping anybody was virtually non existent). Again, this is quite obvious to anyone who has some common sense and (again) who follows basic netiquette.

I hope that helps answer your question. However given the total inappropriateness of this thread, which you have admitted to yourself in your own post, I'm going to lock it. If you still have a problem please take it up in private message and I'll be glad to answer your queries, provided you're polite :-)
