The Forum Staff account
« on: April 04, 2012, 05:31:40 PM »
To counter communication problems that may ensue when a private message about board matters is sent to only a single moderator, we've implemented a shared account among all the moderators, Forum Staff.
When a private message is sent to Forum Staff, the account will automatically repost it in a private forum for all moderators to see.
Therefore, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, and so on regarding the boards or mod activity, please send it to Forum Staff so that all mods will be able to see it and give a consensus answer. Response pms will also, in general, be sent by forum Staff. For private matters, such as commenting on a piece of homebrew by a moderator or the like, continue to send PMs to the individual mods.
Note that this is the account's only purpose, so please don't pm it for other reasons. Forum Staff will also not generally make posts for the same reason.

Two examples:
"Could you explain your reasons for taking moderation action X in the matter Y?" - This should go to Forum Staff, even if there was only one mod involved.
"I have a private question or comment about Z non-moderation post by you" - This should go to the user themselves, as usual.

Use this thread to ask questions about or comment on the measure itself.

PM any site-related issues to this account, rather than the mods' individual accounts. (How it works)
