NEW Caution Flag Icon on Forum Posts in Miscellaneous

4 days ago

Steve,

You have indeed come up with something that , if used properly, can reduce
the workload on moderators to a great extent.
No longer will they have to try and wade through each & every post.

BUT, i do wish to voice a reservation here.
The very 1st REASON " Unclear purpose" is somehow inappropriate.
May be this reason SHOULD find a place of lesser prominence in the list.

I recently posted something recalling an interesting RECOLLECTION as my
response to some observation(s) by a member friend.
I thought it would be amusing for all fellow members to read BUT it was taken
off [ post not approved ] for the VERY SAME REASON i.e.:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The purpose of your post was unclear.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I still can see [in the post that was not approved ] that i CLEARLY MENTIONED:
(1)
THIS is again lighthearted banter. I want you to smile, not get annoyed.
(2)
Other members can chuckle / smile / whatever and leave their "comments"
Any similar childhood memories shared here can "spread joy" throughout
the community.

Not that i am complaining but is "trying to make people smile" a purpose
that SHOULD BE "unclear" to just about anyone ?

What would the world be if everyone only grimaced and / or scoffed but
never smiled or laughed ?

Just a KISS* thought !

I AGREE ( and you can see that on the icon ).
But WHAT IS SO DIFFICULT if someone decides to
AGREE *&* THANK at the same time ?

Beats my pea-size brain... even tonight

I know you are still not ready for breakfast but i am already
thinking of moving from my P.C. desk to my dining table.
AND,

Let me REPORT this straightaway... What do you say

Dear Rebecca


What you say comes STRAIGHT FROM MY .

I would like to congratulate you too on your clearheaded thought [ Please allow... ]
BUT i can not do that simply by clicking the icon once i AGREE with you.

That is THE MAIN REASON for this post.
It was suggested by me earlier under SUGGESTIONS & persistence is my OTHER
virtue , the 1st being LAZINESS.

Of course, you do not need to agree with me.

Dear Nafisa


Phill did say:
why would anyone move me as a previously solid source of income under someone
who is not? I can't see that it has any major purpose other than to push an unknown
to me BTL to a higher rank. I don't get it.

There are considerate persons like you [ as you say in point (2) ]
BUT
not everyone is perfect as you can see for yourself.

Had it been so, you would not be doubting yourself [ ]
[ point (2) again ]

As for me, an American friend pointed out to me recently that my
sense of humor can be interpreted as having NUISANCE VALUE.

Let me assure you, it is only a friendly jibe not intended to hurt or
- God forbid - insult ( ? )

Providing INFORMATION... What is the harm ? in Suggestion Box #Astro Auctions #TripleClicks

12 days ago

I just won an Astro Auction for TCredits Subscription ( 3 Months ).

BUT the email that i received intimating me about the win mentions
only an Order Number.
=================

TRIPLECLICKS.COM ORDER RECEIPT

Order Number: 3531698
Order Date/Time: 2018-11-01 0011


=================

Would it not be more convenient for the members if they were
instead told:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TRIPLECLICKS.COM ORDER RECEIPT

Order Number: 3531698
Order Date/Time: 2018-11-01 0011

##
You won this in AA# 2567 | Date: Sun, October 28, 2018 - 10:42 AM
Yor winning bid was : 302
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope this will be considered with an open mind.

Thanks & Agree Both cannot be used by one person at Forum in Suggestion Box

about 1 month ago

Dear Teresa

I agree with you ( partially though) AND would ALSO like to thank you for putting my thoughts so succinctly in words.

BUT
here is an analogy for ALL concerned to mull over::
*I have already declared that i am neither pro- nor anti- the ONE RESPONSE
dispensation. I also INSIST, "NEW is not better every time."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My son comes home with an excellent marks-sheet or a sports trophy.
As a father, i hug him, congratulate him on his achievement and, on spur of the moment, reward him with a $20 bill from my wallet.
Now, would that be gross ? Would it "create unnecessary complications." ?
Should i rather "KEEP IT SIMPLE" and indulge in only one of the above actions ?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The world is made up of myriad cultures and indeed, "diverse " personalities abound.

WHY should EXPRESSION be curtailed, whatever the argument in favor of doing so UNLESS, of course, some great damage is foreseen ?

Just a thought for today

Thanks & Agree Both cannot be used by one person at Forum in Suggestion Box

about 1 month ago

The ONLY 1 OUT OF 3 is a FRESH DISPENSATION but not necessarily
an IMPROVEMENT.

Moreover, it is only a matter of opinion & mine is a minority 1-2 vote as
per the discussion in this post here.
I have, on occasions, used TWO but never did i feel the need to use all 3.

ALSO,
before going ahead with this change, was there any "statistical study "
carried out about how many persons were clicking on ALL 3 options ?

In my opinion, a few odd-balls can hardly cause any complications
- and the option to use 2 or three votes should be restored.

IF, at all, restoring STATUS QUO [ all 3 clicks allowed ] disrupts the forum's
KEEP IT SIMPLE doctrine and "creates unnecessary complications", this is
a matter that can be [ rather, it should have been ] discussed.before taking
any action.

I have always propounded [ in this forum too ] that NEW is not better
every time.

Personally, i have no interest in EITHER SIDE [ 1/3 or all-3 ] but there are
some opinions that simply NEED to be aired.
And, if you notice, i did not exercise even the 1/3 option .
EMOTICONS, yes ! they are my weakness &* express my feelings
Honestly at that

Off hand, i would say THIS is better than ONCE EVERY 4 DAYS
although my last WIN was only on 2018-09-20 2104
it was CERTAINLY more than 4 days ago.

PERSISTENCE , not LUCK is THE KEY

Preventing Fraudulent RT claims! in Suggestion Box #Localvantia #Rewardical #TripleClicks

3 months ago

Ideally, HONESTY should not require any guidelines or supervision.
Conversely, DISHONESTY should be dealt with severely, rather CRUSHED
remorselessly with an iron fist.

One FALSE CLAIM can be considered a genuine error & the user flagged.
Even honest people CAN make a mistake.

Second false claim & the member can be penalized... a week's suspension
or any other penalty [ including monetary ] as deemed fit.

In case the member persists, do we really need such people in our midst

My 1st action as a STL = Suggesting an EDIT in Suggestion Box #Leadership

3 months ago

Dear Munish,


Where else could THIS ( ) have come from but India

I am applying for a Croatian passport as soon as this name
becomes OFFICIAL

BUT
technically speaking, a spelling mistake is JUST THAT , certainly not
a BUG.
So i am doing the right thing by "suggesting an edit" rather than
"reporting a bug".

Ignore the lady who found EVERYTHING OKAY.
There is an English proverb about "missing the woods for the trees"

Hi, everyone



I achieved my STL norm around an hour ago [ 4004 VP's ] & the
formal announcement should be hitting my inbox any time soon.
{ No emojee for a man dancing }

And, guess what my 1st action as an STL is...
I found yet another boo-boo in our website pages

:

Row # 9

BAs (mononus CSthly)

Should be Bonus CSAs (monthly) or so I reckon
====================================================
My father was an EDITOR for the Government of India &
I always followed closely whatever official work he did at home.

I wonder WHY no other member has noticed THIS
No one has reported it for sure...

With DUE RESPECT to ALL members ,

One look at my own ticket number(s) & the figure is not a secret anymore.

ONLY OBJECTIVE was to draw attention to an expense that i feel is avoidable.

Dear Gery,


I am truly appreciative of the fact that you, the top honcho, takes
PERSONAL INTEREST in an individual's "welfare / issues".
Evidence is right here for all of us to see.

BUT, what about certain issues that are swept under the carpet &
never reach [ / are intentionally kept away from ] YOUR eyes ?
******
(2)
I am sure the 3rd party IS being paid.
Would you care to share the exact figures ?
OR, like 3 bosses of mine, tell me gruffly to "stop meddling"
... [ or, you will face disciplinary action - they threatened ] ?

It was only the 4th incumbent who listened to me & ACTED.

Call it persistence or call it obstinacy. BUT, that's me.

Of course, here too, i can not INSIST that what i feel is right.
I only "expressed" what i felt i should.

(3)
I remember your "assurance" about your receptive attitude.
PLUS you never told me " Never send us emails. "
I still remember that you replied to my ( silly, as they seem in
retrospect ) emails with utmost patience [ 2014, was it ? ]

AND (4)
By the way, India is celebrating 71 years of INDEPENDENCE.
See ? No emoticons this time...

Dear Ray,



You are being overly modest
AND, a gem of a person IF my experience is anything to go by.
BUT
To be very honest, you ARE wrong.
The idea occurred to me SUDDENLY - AFTER the post had
been submitted.
And the nostalgic reference ? That too was an innocent "BRAG".
IT saw the light of day { although it is nearly midnight for me }
simply because the cases were similar.

Four or five years ago, in fact, i had made this suggestion that ideas
that ARE implemented should be rewarded.
BUT, Gery shot it down on the premise that the members will then
be tempted to inundate SUPPORT with unnecessary tickets.
So, there !

Find me like Christine did [ ] and we can be friends.
