Re: Xoops developer wanted (paid)
1) Reg. originally private messages showing up in public forums, we don't have any problems with moving them to the private area. As we said in the email to you and others - please pinpoint which ones, and we'll do it
2) We've said before that we're not responsible for content of messages being posted here.
3) I'll contact you off-line to discuss the other issues. It's a learning experience, so hopefully you'll be patient with us.
4) In general - the modifications on the jobs listings are done because we support only people and companies who are supporting and promoting XOOPS. We will not promote individuals and companies who are actively competing with XOOPS. I'm sorry, but I don't think that you would see Microsoft promoting Linux developers, right
Content on XOOPS Project websites should never conflict with the Purpose of promoting and supporting the XOOPS Project and the XOOPS community.
XOOPS reserves the right to refuse or delete any Content of which it becomes aware and reasonably deems not to fulfill the Purpose.
So the moderation is done from mainly one perspective - "What was the intent of the poster - is this to promote and supporte XOOPS and XOOPS users"? If it is something than can be seen as trolling or flaming XOOPS, then we deserve the right to moderate it. To be honest - I don't think that you ever met a moderator, including yourself, who made everybody happy. There will be always somebody who feels unhappy.
Time permitting, we'll try to get in touch with posters and explain why, so we all can learn from it.
Again, this is XOOPS Forums to promote and support XOOPS and XOOPS users, not to use it to promote competing individuals and projects. We don't go to Joomla, Drupal, or other boards and try to tell them what's wrong with them and to promote XOOPS. So we would appreciate if people from competing systems would leave us here alone as well. I can guarantee that every constructive feedback will be considered. We are working hard to get XOOPS back where it should be, and we don't have time for trolling and fighting, because it takes our time away from helping our users!
Bender, I'm sorry you don't feel happy. We are trying our best to do everything here as professional as possible. I'll respond to your email later, and we can continue the dialog off-line.
