Welcome to ask a mod. You ask, I answer. Post your questions, concerns or feedback with the word MODS in it, and it will be posted here.
Q:mods: Talk questions on both Brides and Military Wives appear to be old confessions? Is the timestamp messed up?
Q: Mods: The talk of the day in Brides has been from 2010 every time it has changed. Just not enough new material?
Q: Mods, is there a reason there's a 2 year old confession as the talk of the day in Bride?
A: That’s just the most recent advice seeking confession I could find. So if you want your advice seeking confession posted, try those channels :)
Q:MODS: Since Office is such a different experience for all, wouldn't it be better to post the MostFaves instead of MostMeToos? Most Faves seem to say "group hug" or that it's just a comic office relief. Just a random thought.
A: I’ll forward that suggestion onto our new owner. I’m not sure we can individualize the headings for each channel, but I’ll ask.
Q:MODS: If you can put through confession truu301262, then you should have allowed through posted the confession where I wrote the opposite. It's highly offensive to fat people who have partners that are really attracted to them, regardless of their size. And don't give me the "We don't post confessions that appear to responses to other confessions," because people still post confessions in response to other confessions that get through the queue all the time. Hypocritical much? Really disappointed!
A: Thanks for the heads up about that post, I’ve removed it. I’m not sure how it slipped through, but I think you’ll find looking through the boards and blogs I come down much much harder on weight hate than just about any topic on the board.
Q:MODS, here is what the website is telling me when I go to sign up. "This sign-up form is not available. Please contact this site's Webmaster for assistance." and it re-directs me to this web browser: https://app.icontact.com/icp/signup.php. I would very much love to sign up so I don't have to keep posting anonymously. Thanks!
A: I think we got you all taken care of via facebook. But if anyone else is having this problem, let me know. Be sure your using the sign up box for the site, it’s confusing but it’s near the log in button.
Q/A: I was asked not to post the next question in ask a mod, but user I just wanted to let you know that your concern has been dealt with
Q:124859 is a response post. Pretty nasty one, mods.
A: Thanks for the heads up, that user has been banned
Q:Mods: 124859 is a response post to number. Posted a moment ago before I had time to find the original post. Also, number is a response itself to an earlier post, but I don't have that number.
A: Thanks for the heads up, that post has been removed
Q:Mods confession number user insults user calling him an asshole in the comments.
A: thank you for the heads up. I’ve sent a warning to that user.
Q:Mods: you probably can't or won't be able to answer this, but do you know what happened to user? I enjoyed her posts/comments. Thanks.
A: That user requested I remove her account from truu confessions. I wasn’t given a reason
Q:MODS, I have nothing against someone promoting their book...but why here? If it's not specific to mothers, their experiences or their confessions, it just seems kinda shameless.
A: That blog is for the entire site, not just the mom channel. On that blog we’ve discussed Twilight, Hunger Games, Fifty Shades of Grey, Shutterfly memory books, and used to host random authors. We’ve discussed politics, obesity, shelter pets, and hundreds of other topics that don’t relate directly to being a mom, wife, bride, ect. Here at truu, we believe you are more than your role and may enjoy a free excerpt of a book every now and then. If it’s not for you, and I say this with no sarcasm, don’t click the link in the center of the page. The blog topic changes every Monday.
And yeah, it was also shameless self promotion. I work at a website with countless users that has hits in the millions. I’d be an idiot not to take advantage of that, and as an employee of truu it’s an authorized perk.
Q:Mods: 688378 is a direct response to a post about people without children being on the mom board, it even uses the same wording. I feel that the original post was a live and let live type thing yet the comments on the response are just rude and even hurtful. Can you take a look?
A: It’s been removed. Thanks for the heads up.
Q:Mods, I didnt mean to flag #688600. My phones very touchy. Sry.
A: No problem
Q:Mods: 688730 is calling people who believe in religion, stupid. Please remove it?
A: Done. Thanks for the heads up.
Q:mods: This is like my third MODS post tonight. Sorry! But now there is a TON of gibberish down the right hand side of my screen? Looks like some script, and a conversation between Emily R Washkowitz and Dhiman Dhiman. The conversation takes literally that entire side of the page...maintenance maybe, but it does have phone numbers and it looks like Emily just gave her notice to StyleCasters and is moving to Washington??? Good for you, Emily, lol! Heads up and thanks for anything you guys can do about it!
A: No problem. I’ve forwarded your concern to our tech guy.
Q:mods, I'm wondering if it's possible for you to remove my username and all past confessions? (my username is user) My laptop was recently stolen from me and most of my confessions under my username were bookmarked. I don't want whoever stole it to find out my personal secrets! Thanks.
A: No problem. Sorry about your laptop
Q:Mods, I'd like to make a suggestion. In the top area where "Editor's Picks" and "Most Me Toos" is I think there should be a couple more tabs for the most active posts (whichever ones over the past few hours have the most combined metoo, omg, fave, and comments).
A: I’ll forward your suggestion to our new owner. Thank you
Q:Really Mods? Deleting my comments, but not those of the person name calling? I honestly don't understand. Whatever.
A: I don’t moderate comments unless they were brought to my attention, which unless you were the user mentioned in a question above, they weren’t. Comments can be removed if enough users flag them, but that has nothing to do with me.
