Wherein the mod simply reasserts the decision.Quote:If you have a question or concern about a forum moderation decision, please private message the applicable moderator.
I can understand the regulation of slam-threads/posts that do little more than flame a mod, 343 dev, or fellow Halo fan - but if an argument presents itself in opposition to a mod decision, is it not an imbalance to have the poster ask the mod in question to reevaluate his or her own decision? There is no comparable procedure like this in any other hierarchal community or business; allowing the higher up in question to preside over themself.
Has there ever been a case where PMing a mod over a decision has ever resulted in the decision overturned? The current appeal procedure is predicated on the possibility of exactly that, otherwise it's one of two truths:
Either the mods have never been wrong in their flagging, or the appeal process is just having the mods explain why they aren't overturning anything.
*I'd like to make clear that I'm not arguing in defense of trolls and other very clear violations of rules. But in a hypothetical case of the mod being wrong about something, what in the current appeal process makes overturning his decision possible?
