This is a temporary topic and will be removed once a majority of the forum has the chance to see the memo.

The past few weeks have seen a large increase of backseat moderation. This derails the discussion of threads by telling people to get back to topic, edit their posts or remove their topic. From now on, this will be more strictly enforced and all backseat moderation will be removed as it should be.

Report functions, PMing a moderator and the Modification Request Topic still exist for any and all inquiries.

In the meantime, not *every* discussion has to stay with the original topics. It won't kill you to allow a bit of leeway as to what people discuss, because obstructions will occur. As long as a topic about banned users does not become a discussion about cheese, please leave it be.

Okay, only if people don't get salty when I use the report button (I saw the Maple~Button ship when I left the forum- not cool)

As long as you don't report to the February 2016 levels (my e-mail was being spammed with over 20 reports a day...)

You're right. But it's one that many people didn't follow, and until now it was never enforced too much. So I felt this topic was necessary.

Does questioning whether or not it should be moved count as backseat moderation?

You shouldn't be bringing up a topic being moved unless it's in Modification Request Topic anyways.

What about when you post the topic in the wrong place and another person tells you the right board.
Does that count as backseat moderation?

Technically it is, but if you're just being helpful it's fine.

The issues come when someone makes a topic and then the topic gets 11 posts...and like 9 of them are "MOVE IT!"
