Is there anyway some of the more regular users of the chatroom could be given admin powers over just the chatroom, as there has been now at least four incidents of abusive behaviour from a certain couple of members, and as the mods aren't in the chat room that often, it can be a nightmare getting rid of them, especially as a lot of new members go in there for help.. doesn't make it too welcoming a place with someone effing and blinding at everyone.

 

Just a thought.

Guest NATTIE

Guys with chatrooms there is a log which admin can view. Take a note of the approximate time, username and what was said and PM a Mod just asking them to take some action. Anything that is against forum rules can be dealt with by them potentially by a ban being made against the user or a quiet word in their PM box to remind them of behaviour in there. I have seen a few things there in my time and i agree it is not a nice thing for the CAG in general. Any chance Mods of a REPORT button in the chat room, i am sure i, sorry we, could use it:D

Good advice as usual Nattie

you will also find that mods will be in there a lot more in future as I have been for the past 2 days .That does not mean that we constantly watch the chat as that would be boring for any of us to sit and do all day .So if the mod that is in there doesn't react to an incident then please do as is suggested in Natties post .

I do not get alerts at present when I get a PM or someone rings the bell as my speakers are bust.:(

Good suggestions by all .

 

There is also already an sos facility written into the TUFaT flashchat program whereby if you type /sos + an optional message if you like , any moderators logged into the room will be alerted .

 

If you do not wish to see anything posted by a particularly abusive user you can also click their name on the list to the right of the screen and press the IGNORE tag.The user will be aware you are ignoring them and if enough people are ignoring or do not react to their comments who knows they may just leave of their own accord if no one is there to boot them.If you accidentally ignore the wrong user there is also an UN-IGNORE button .

 

There are a lot of useful commands built into the flashchat program and a list can be viewed by clicking this link

 

IRC-like commands for FlashChat

Many regular users are not aware of these functions (including some Mod`s:wink:) and these can be put to good use if used correctly and not abused.

 

I have worked on many forums where these have been used quite sucessfully and it gives ordinary users some useful tools.

Thx for the Info Jules,

 

Learned something new today, there have been times whena polite request to behave hasn't had much success but this should help keep the rooms for the purpose intended.

 

Thanks again

Any advise offered is my own opinion, and if in doubt, always seek clarification.

There are also many times when a polite request has been met with a barrage of abuse both on open chat & pm so thanks for this Jules. I will arm myself with this & also inform the chatroom addicts (you know who are).

I personally love a laugh and a joke in 'chat' but unfortunately recently I have avoided going in because of certain users attitude etc.

I have always enjoyed popping in and helping the newbies etc but its so offputting/embarrassing when you are trying to help and all you can see on the screen is abuse etc.

Can someone please notify me when something has been sorted out and then I shall return !

And lets not forget there is always the off-topic room for people to muck about it anyway.

 

hmm me-think I might just pop in there to see how things are going anyway, and guide the naughty one's into the off-topic room.

 

darling

Won: a few, claiming: quite a few more !!!!

 

Better in our pockets than in theirs eh! :)
