Please send me a PM with your order information and I will take care of it for you.
Thank you for sharing your ideas.  Some of them are doable, some are not.  We do not have the ability to scan a post for keywords and then recommend threads or articles on the topic.  That would actually be pretty resource intensive both in programming time and computational power to provide at scale. (But it would be pretty cool) The recognition type stuff is something we have been discussing internally and trying to figure out the best implementation, but definitely...
 Could you expand on what you mean by "serious rule adjustments" ?
  I have to disagree.  This is not about growing the member base to increase revenues.  This is amount the ever increasing volume of emails we are receiving from new visitors expressing that they were made to feel unwelcome or humiliated in their initial interactions on the site.  This is not caused by the majority of members, but there are some members who can be unnecessarily harsh or unwelcoming. We care just as much about existing members as new members, but more...
 I would not say that you cannot mention banned members, I think the point is that we don't want forum threads dedicated to lamenting the banishment of someone who took actions that resulted in banishment.  I do not like to banish people and I fully recognize that sometimes when we banish someone we also lose some amount of value and knowledge that person might have.  It is the unfortunate loss that comes with also not tolerating certain actions.  There are the things that...
 I am not specifically proposing that we have a special forum, just throwing ideas out to get the conversation going, the point of the thread is to get a lot of ideas flowing in and hear what the users think would work or not. While I agree regulating negative behavior is a key component, it is not the only component that needs to be addressed.  Organization of information, learning how CC works through screenshot tours, welcome messages, welcome committees, etc, are all...
If you want to tell me about how you feel you have been treated badly, please send a PM.     If you want to suggest how we (Mods and Admins) can set things up better to smooth out the community interaction, please post those suggestions here.   We really need to keep this thread on point or it will be difficult to go back through and pull out all the good ideas.   Thanks!
I understand you are trying to help, but this thread is not the place for us to get into the whole history of when and how we have recruited moderators ( and yes we have both publicly called out for volunteers as well as privately approached various members over the years), what efforts we take to show our appreciation, etc.  Moderation is one aspect of an enjoyable community, I recognize that more good moderators would be helpful, lets move on to the gathering of...
 Sure I don't doubt that either.  There are always going to be people overly sensitive in both directions.  It will never all go away, but we can all make it a goal to minimize the unnecessary conflicts, just remember why everyone is here to begin with, focus on common goals and interest and get along. The growth of the cake community is good for everyone in it.  More participants means more support and inspiration.  It also means more incentive for manufacturers to invest...
  I don't fully agree with this.. as a person who actually sees the reported posts, there are plenty of times where rudeness, pettiness and ganging up take place in totally unnecessary ways.   And I disagree with the idea that there is room for everyone here.  There is room for everyone who wants to be polite, respectful, and welcoming here.  For people who do not want to interact that way there are other forums to go to.   This is not an issue of honest critic, it is an...
