So all moderators/administrator have the ability to bury posts now as well as not being able to be flagged, is that not a little bit unfair? What's next moderator/administrator posts can't be disliked?

The way I see it, a moderator/administrator can bury a post they don't like.

Disclosure: Not discussing moderator/administrator actions, merely illuminating an unfair power, nor am I breaking any rules.

    We have had the power to delete individual posts since long before these new forums. Not sure why it would be an issue now.

    As a general rule, if someone thinks a post or thread was handled incorrectly they can always contact the Kixeye CMs about it.

    I didn't say delete posts, I said bury them. I don't have an issue per say more the fact that a mod/admin can flag a post and it gives it 5 flags as opposed to the regular 1 flag.

    Even though a post is buried, it is still relatively easy to access and view. When compared to various other moderator abilities such as banning players from the forum or deleting posts, It would determine that burying a post is either equally or less of an ability that the former two. However, like all moderator abilities, if players feel that they are used incorrectly, they can PM a CM to discuss the matter.

    Threads made complaining about the new MR3(in BYM) gets closed every time. I think its because things have became really sensitive due to players not liking the new MR and its glitches, while the Mods have to handle everything, though they cant do anything about it. I do understand KIXEYE's need to do this, but please, do consider what the players are complaining about as an area that needs improvements on. That could help the community better.
    [edit:]Requested to be a moderator, put into waiting list. Still waiting LOL C: haha.

    Completely untrue. They were mostly merged into one thread. The only things that get removed are the threads/posts blatantly violating forum rules.

    and thread closed.
    Please do not contact me directly by Chat or via posts on my profile page. If I cannot deal with it on the forums, it should be taken straight to Support.
