Sometime, it's unavoidable that moderators will make mistakes in enforcing the rules (they are only humans). These might be simple mistakes, or the result of bias, but one way or another, while they're unavoidable, that's no reason not to fix them. To that end, we have created the Bulbagarden Board of Appeals. This board consist of some of our most experienced staff (at present, former Bulbagarden Forums Head Administrator and former Bulbagarden Rule Director @Evil Figment, and former Bulbagarden Forums Head Administrator and former Bulbagarden Chief of Staff @evkl). Reviewing complaints and deciding what to do with them will be their only task on Bulbagarden.
The role of the board of appeals is to make sure that the users of Bulbagarden are treated fairly by the staff. To do that, it will, on request from members, review any action by the staff (including infractions, warnings, bans, thread deleting, thread closing, etc).
How it works?
- You can appeal any use by a moderator of his moderator power (infraction/warnings, editing/deleting/closing, etc), or their behavior (harassment, flaming).
- Anyone can appeal: both the victim of the action, and anyone, user or staff who happen to see it happening.
- You can only appeal things once they have happened. We won't answer hypothetical complaints, only complaints about actual events.
- The board will decide whether the rules were respected, whether the rules are fair, and whether a moderator need to be punished.
Any action that's found to be against the rule will be reversed; and rules that are unfair will also be removed.
To complain, fill in this form: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/forms.php?do=form&fid=2 (infraction messages will also link to a complaint form)
You can also send a private message to @evkl or @Evil Figment requesting a review.
