without going into specifics, let me just say that there is an unwritten honor code for moderators - you must be fair and consistent in how you make decisions.
If you edit someone else's post for clarity or language , it is expected that you will state a reason for why it was edited.
If you ban someone, it has to be deliberate and well thought out. First, send a polite message and hope that the member understands how the forum works. next, report the member to us and recommend a ban. we can then follow through on your recommendation.
You do have powers, but they have been given to you in good faith. i trust that all of you will follow these guidelines in the future.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
1) Praet and his gang give us mod powers because they believe in us. Please don't let them down.
2) Not trying to be rude here, but we are grown-ups. Do we still need ppl tell us how to behave ?
3) Use your powers, but judiciously. They are with you for a reason.
If you do modify/delete someone's post, let the original poster know. They'll know what not to do in the future.
