Please be sure to make submissions only in good faith.
If the removal of my hack was in "good faith" so are these submissions...If asking for equal standards to be applied is somehow "bad faith" then i am left a bit confused as to the meaning of "standards"
OR "good faith"
I dont want anyone to get the wrong idea here. I was not intending for removal, i was trying to make a point for reinstatement.
I don't know where the confusion is. Making a submission "in good faith" means that the submission is genuine, not spam, not done with underhand motives, and not rhetorical
. It means if you flag something as non-compliant, you mean to say that it is non-compliant.
The attack helicopter hack was flagged as non-compliant. Staff reviewed it and agreed. (And, maybe I'm confused, but I recall initially rejecting the hack for the same reason only for it to be resubmitted and approved by a different staff memeber. If that's the case, are you really surprised it got flagged and removed? I mean, really?)
You guys put your foot down. Additional hacks were flagged as non-complaint. We took them at face value, examined the hacks, and removed them. You got what you asked for. We treated your submissions and requests exactly the same as we treated everyone else's, as was always the intent and motive. I'll repeat it. That's what you were asking for.
I want to be excruciatingly clear on these points:
- RHDN submissions are subject to RHDN policy and rules, TOS for RHDN's hosting, and, of course, any legal concerns such as liability and copyright, within reason. They are not subject to blatant personal or political bias or an individual reviewer's taste. We are human, and therefore not always perfect or consistent, which is why we are always willing to listen to and address concerns.
- You guys are the community. Everyone, including the "BHDN crew". Your opinion is paramount and as long as you can engage in civil discussion, we want to hear what you have to say.
- The submission queue is not a place to mount a protest or make a point. I'm pretty serious about keeping it drama free, so I'm asking again that people only make legitimate submissions.
I'm here to help. I don't have an axe to grind or a point to make. And I'd like to not be roped into drama.
