Default Sub-Forum rules are not available in the TA app

Hello.
Please forgive me if my post is out of place.

Coolpepper43 and I noticed that in the TA app, the rules announcement is not there.
I noticed, that the rules are listed in the "announcement" before each forum section in the regular web site but not in the app.
Is it possible to make it a sticky instead of, or also(?) so it'll show up?

I'm not sure if I can explain this right. Under the link for promo codes, for example, there is a 1 line statement that it is for developers only. Again, not so in the app.

And yes, I do see that there is some info regarding rules in this feedback & news section, but, it's real easy to overlook the section in the app.

I believe it would help with less confusion for the posters and less work for the mod's.

Just a thought.

I'm pretty sure that as long as there are no complaints then there are no problems. I've certainly seen a few moderators posting/participating in these Starbucks and other member created threads.

Any comment Eli or Jared? Thank you in advance.

I see the starbucks ones in the price drop section all the time. I dont think that its a big deal.

That wasnt the purpose of my post. I tried to imply that not having the rules readily available in the TA app is what causes the issue and can be quite confusing for some members who only use an ipad to come here.

Some times a post 'magically' disapears and the member doesnt know why.
If there were easy access to the rules, then less confusion, less work.

Did this make sense? It's almost 2:30 am for me. I dont sleep much but, since i have to start my day in a couple hours, id better get to bed.

ya, some posts magically do disappear. I also wish if something was removed or edited the mod would tell you and why they did it. I'm like you with my sleep. I'll post something and then it disappears and then I wondered if I even posted it or I'm hallucinating from a lack of sleep.

Sorry for bumping this, but I thought this would be important to add.

Not to long ago, one of my posts disappeared and so did a part of someone else's post that I had written about.
Not a big deal. The right thing was done.

Anyways, I was on my laptop, so I was viewing touch arcade outside of the TA app. I noticed at the bottom of the other persons partially deleted post, it stated something like: reason for deletion or edit... By moderator.... And the reason for it. I looked at the same section through the TA app and saw that this information was not there.

What I'm trying to say is; let's not always be to sure that the moderator did not leave a reason.
Sometimes it just doesn't show up in the app. (Note: I am not making this statement to cool pepper. I am making to everyone, including myself)

I believe the moderators are trying their best within the limits they are working in. I really do. I appreciate this community and the the unpaid work of the mods. ( thank you - Mods!)

That's all.

On the whole thats not going to happen. What with deleting 100's of spam posts a day (Most arent reported), deleting any offensive posts or arguments i just havent got free time to PM someone to say why their post was deleted (when in actual fact its obvious most of the time)

I mean if someone writes something offensive and someone then quotes it i have to then delete two posts. Same for spam, some people stupidly quote spam (instead of reporting it) so thats another post to delete. Other times people beg/ask for promo codes when thats against the rules. (They never seem to buy games, just ask for codes !)

If there is an instance where you think 'why was that deleted ?' PM a mod. But i would say most times its obvious why

Yeah, with how much behind the scenes stuff we do, sending everyone a PM is not feasible.


I'm gonna open up the floodgates and say that if you're concerned about a missing post, PM me and I'll tell you the reason. I won't say who deleted it or anything, but feel free to ask me.

I want to ask you then... Is it better for you when members report spam? What about double posts? Posts in the wrong section?
I see spam sometimes and I don't know wether it's better to report it or wait for you, or another moderator to notice it. I worry about filling up your boxes with constant reports. I also don't want to be looked at as high maintenance. Although, that ship may have sailed a long time ago! LOL
I personally don't mind doing my part if my part means reporting things.
Thanks!

Don't worry about reporting spam. More the merrier!

If you notice spam is by one person report that once by that person as we nuke them in one go so that deleted their posts

But feel free to report as much spam as you want. Better to do that than not
Thanks
