1 : to challenge or object to (as a judge) as having prejudice or a conflict of interest

I think it would be a good idea as a general rule that if a moderator of any type has a high level of personal involvement with the subject being discussed in a thread they should then recuse themselves from behaving as a moderator in that particular thread. Otherwise, the conflict of interest is obvious and might lead them to behave differently then they would otherwise. There are always other moderators, super moderators, and administrators available if necessary. It's just impossible for any human being to remain fair and objective in that situation.

I think that this is a good universal principle in general for all forums and moderators, and it isn't directed at any particular individual.

Just my two cents.

I believe it was for creating a new account when his original was temp-banned for flaming.

I could be totally dead wrong, though (probably am, because my memory ain't what it once was).

No, that sounds right. That was a huge mess; I don't think either party handled it well (IMO). But mods always win, so tFP is dead.

As far as such things go, however, I'd consider this an official warning to not do that again. Single word posts are frowned on when they contribute, and we terribly dislike single smilie posts that do nothing.

You obviously didn't see the sarcasm in my post. Perhaps a "lol" would have made it more clear.

And I did not know that one word posts were banished from the lucasforums realm =D

Perhaps if it were funny to begin with?

I always preferred "I can't believe its not butter". I mean, it's the same consistency, and it certainly tastes better.

Another thread derailed by silliness.

Actually Amidala, that is our general principle and has been for a long long time (at least on the JK.net/Star Wars side of LF).

Now of course if a certain moderator were to be "picked on" (hypothetically speaking) and he or she excuses himself/herself from said problem area, and the other moderators decide that he/she (the moderator in question) was unfairly attacked, they may decide to take action, even if it was the same action the singled out moderator may have been intending to make!

So one should not assume that just because a moderator has personal involvement that "justice" will not be done (as descerned by the forum leaders of course).

So there's your politik for the day, enjoy!
