Starting today, we'll be running a trial of more stringent forum moderation.  For the next several days, the following additional forum rules are in effect.  This post will be altered as needed and removed when the trial is over, at which point the rules will either revert or be altered permanently, depending on the results of this trial.

- Moderators have been assigned to each forum from the contribution evaluation staff.
- Negative feedback does not affect reputation score.  Instead, it serves only as notice to forum moderators to investigate a posting.
- Political and Religious discussion is not allowed
- Keep all posts polite and to the point.  Off-topic posts will be removed, and rude/incendiary posts will be removed and may result in additional moderator actions.
- We will be handing out 24-hour posting bans as maximum penalty during the trial period.  We will do this by artificially adjusting the reputation score.

At the start and end of the trial, all negative reputation scores are being reset to 0.

I sure hope this will help (re-)introduce some common decency in these forums...

Wount?  Will, won't or would? I for one would be perfectly happy with such a simple "no such posts"-policy. This is, after all, the forum of a piece of DVD cataloging software - what do we need political and religious discussion for? Seeing as though recent attempts have almost unanimously ended in disaster, I could easily live without them.

For Ken: a little earlier I awarded a post with negative feedback, but it shows up on my reputation page as though I've given a green ("up") arrow instead of a red one. Is everything all right?

It is now!  But, please resubmit the feedback now that it's fixed.

You've gone from, little to no moderation, to moderation in the extreme.  I was kinda hoping for something in between.  I guess we will see how things go. 
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.

Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

So are the moderators anonymous?  Do we know when somethings been moderated (moderator leaving posts like in some forum)?

Yes, they're anonymous. If you look at the last page of the Bemused thread (or last couple of pages in fact), you can see what it looks like when something's been edited by them.

If you look at the posts, on the last page of the locked thread in the contribution forum, you will see this:

So, yes, there is some indication.

Edit: I see James types faster than I do.
