This topic has been reposted here to deal with a specific issue:

Newbies are flooded with 'read the rules' and 'RULES ARE HERE' from the time they sign up. They don't need it from anyone else. It's rude, unneccesary, and our new members need to feel welcome to the community as opposed to immediately overpowered.

The mods, admins, ops, staff, pretty little banana slugs, whatever you want to call us--we have been throwing around a little pet peeve of ours.
It has many names. Some people call it backseat moderating. Others call it minimodding. Everyone in power agrees it's annoying.

Backseat modding, or 'minimodding', is when a normal member decides to take it upon themselves to bother normal members with the rules.
They may:
---Give a new member an extremely rude greeting: Welcome to KRR! Read the rules.
---Make a completely pointless post saying that someone else's post is pointless.
---Make a completely off-topic post telling someone to get back on-topic.

Those are just a few examples, but there are many, many ways to minimod.

"Why is this a bad thing?" Is one often-asked question. "We're making life easier for the admins/mods/pie!"

As previously stated, it's quite rude to greet a brand-new member with "READ THE RULES."
It can be dangerous, as false information could be passed on -- this is most common when a member thinks a post is pointless, or that a topic is going off-topic.
You earn your badge by setting a good example, not telling people off. Not everyone has the skills to behave as a good moderator. Minimodding is NOT the way to prove yourself worthy.


If there is a problem, talk to us! We won't bite!
We're quite happy to resolve any concerns you might have, all of us can be reached through MSN, AIM, IRC, or forum PM.

Thanks!

Wow... what a statement. o.o;

I always thought it seemed a little rude that almost everyone was saying "read the rules", they're told that on the forum splash page. >.>
And reminded when they enter the forums.
And when they read other important information.
And if they break a small rule. (eg. double posting)
They don't need many more reminders.

all right, i'll stop, and i think it would be good to say they shouldn't say "[...]and, if i could say read the rules, i would say, but, since i can't, then just don't follow them"... or something in this way.

Is re-directing to the right forum or giving a little heads up back-seat modding? Just asking :x

Like: This is the wrong forum. It goes *forum name here* PM a mod to move it

?
