For the record: The topic starter (username "Subbetje") has deleted his account and all of his posts. While we can only guess WHY Subbetje did that, it makes this topic a bit weird to read and understand. However, with the replies of the other users, a good reader will be able to conclude a part of the nonsense written by Subbetje.
First reply post:
First of all, since this issue is not about the new .com site, I moved your post to this dedicated topic, made especially for you.
It seems like you are on a mission (again), that's why you write in the English section of the forum, while we both speak Dutch and you know exactly who is removing certain comments, aren't you?
And once again, you are making a couple of thinking mistakes and factual errors. To be honest, it's getting quite tiresome to keep on replying to false drama yelling, but once again I will do it, although it may be the last time I'll spend my time on your 'mission'.
Not every comment is being removed. Comments with thank-you's and subtitle requests are being removed systematically. Other comments basically remain.stop removing every freakin comment people make om subtitles.
If you understand why thank-you's are being removed (to avoid flooding while there is a dedicated thank-you-button) and you think that's okay, you may understand as well why subtitle requests are being removed (to avoid flooding while there is a dedicated request section). I don't understand why you think this is not okay.In the dutch section, people's thank you messages are deleted, that's okay, i guess since we have a thank you button, but also people asking for a resync to different sources are being removed.
I am wondering where you get your info from. Did you do any survey amongst users about this? If so, please state your sources, the methodology, the research population and conclusional outcome.People are having a hard time as it is following 'rules and guidelines'. People hardly know what they can type anymore.
Personally I have the impression that in general people know it well enough: no thank-you's, no subtitle requests and no aggression, intimidation, provocations, privacy/security violations, etc..
The latter is common sense and seems to be no problem with most users, a few exceptions here and there, now and then. Like for example with you, see https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/subtit ... -rule-1-nl
As for comment-written thank you's and requests, true, some users seem to be not aware. This is when those comments are deleted and, if it happens more often, that user will be explained kindly and well.
I don't think activity level is nearly dead. Would you rather see zillions of thank-you's and requests? That would not be "alive", I would call it "flooded" and actually I think exactly that flooding would actually kill other communication.The activity level is near dead as it is
You almost made me cryand now we can't even properly help people, because their questions are being removed without any help given.

I am sorry, but you are turning things upside down while twisting them. it is much harder to help people, when/if the comment system is flooded. Help is not frustrated by removing requests in comments. On the contrary, this is how to keep space for (for example) real help questions. If you want to help people with requests, you can find some work to do in the request section. Other help IS given through the comment system (amongst other means as well).
No, I will not give you that. New users get a great benefit of the doubt and beginners privileges and are not treated as veterans. Users DO get notifications on comments UNLESS they actively switch this system off or use some kind of fake or unmonitored e-mail address.and please don't give me the 'users should message each other on their profiles'. Users hardly know they have a profile. There is no notification system that notifies when someone sends you a message on your profile either. it's a completely random wishfull thinking scenario to avoid issues and doing an admins task. Users have no clue they even have a profile, only old ones might know, by accident, totally random.
Stop being so hard on newer people.
It's totally okay for users to use the comment system to communicate. That's what it is for. Once again, some examples of useful and sense making communication, which I posted before in your other SmallBrother scandalizing topic:
● https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/subtit ... e-truth-nl
● https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/subtit ... outpost-nl
● https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/subtit ... cognome-nl
● https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/subtit ... ode-2-1-nl

Ironically, in the example you give, the user making a request is gellimo. On his/her profile page you can see that 1. I asked him/her before about using the request section for requests, 2. he/she has read this and 3. today I explained/asked again. All in very kind and calm tone. And with reference to a very well explaining forum topic.
So I have no idea what you want to prove with your example. Proving that "users hardly know"? Apparently some do. Proving that I removed a comment with a request? No need to prove that. I don't deny, I did it and I will do it again. Unlike some people I don't run away for my own actions and typically my actions are well overthought.
So, I think I replied to your issue well enough. And I think there is not so much left of your arguments.
It makes me wonder what is your REAL issue and why you are posting here what you are posting.
- Are you upset that I don't choose sides in your 80 year war with your rivaling release team?
- Or maybe worse, you think I am on the side of your rivaling release team?
- You are upset that SubbedNinja is admin and you think I made him admin?
- Is this maybe again a very tactical attempt to put my adminship in bad lighting, trying to weaken my position and strengthen yours?
- Do you think I will change my behavior in favor of you to avoid further similar 'genuine forum posts'?
- Maybe a combination of the above?
Be advised, if the Dutch section ever needs an additional or even new admin, I am sure the big boss will definitely think about you. However, I don't think a user on his (literally) 17th known account, who was banned a couple of times before for aggression (etc.) and deliberately falsifying credits (to mention just a few historical facts) will make a great chance.
Now please answer my questions (for a change).
