A Moderator's Decision
We live by these rules, and any moderator action is due to an infringement. We don't moderate on content, but we do enforce these rules.
Challenging a moderator in public for their action will lock you down, all abilities to post and edit will be removed.
I feel that a moderator has acted unfairly. What can I do?
If you feel that a moderator has taken inappropriate action, there is a set procedure you can take to resolve this issue. Creating a thread about the problem in public is not the proper procedure.
1) Send a PM to the moderator that you believe has acted unfairly. State your case in clear, polite terms. See if you can resolve the issue with this moderator first. If you do not know which moderator to message, you can send your message to any moderator who is online.
2) If you can not resolve the issue with the moderator in question, you may then contact one Global Moderator to state your case. Your complaint will be posted in the staff only area for review by other staff members. Once a final decision has been made regarding the situation, you will be informed.
3) If you have a complaint regarding the actions or decisions of a Global Moderator, you can send those complaints to the Administrator. As with the other messages, please be clear and to the point.
When you are moderated for an infraction or infringement, you may receive a PM as to why. If it was a blatant infringement, it will be deleted with no notice. If not, it is acceptable to send a civil note to the moderators requesting the reason. We don't sent messages for general scrubbing or cleanup of banter or chatter.
Discussing Concerns about Forum Admins
If you have a concern about an action that a forum leader (administrator or moderator) demonstrated, send the leader a private message expressing your concerns. Re-creating locked threads, public questioning of moderator actions and attacks against moderators will result in your posting privileges being suspended or permanently removed.
RCDiscuss.com reserves the right to remove any post that does not relate to the topic being discussed or is considered inappropriate on the board. In addition, RCDiscuss.com reserves the right to organize message boards (or folders) in order to best serve the majority of our members. For example, narrow-interest or minimal activity topics may, at RCDiscuss.com's discretion, be relocated to a more appropriate forum, or deleted entirely. RCDiscuss.com also reserves the right to prohibit or delete messages that are thought to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members, or the rights of RCDiscuss.com or others.

Nor can we ensure prompt removal of offending message board posts. We encourage members to report offending posts and threads to bring them to our attention so they may be dealt with as quickly as possible.
We also reserve the right to remove your RCDiscuss.com membership should you violate its rules or should we deem necessary. Any decision to ban a member for abuse of any of these rules, or for whatever reason, will be made by the administrator team.
