Do mods actually communicate with developers? Reply:13| View:1085
Well, I thought mods said they talk to developers, but apparently they still have to come to the forums for Support as shown in this thread -> http://community.gtarcade.com/thread/423330-1-1.html

So, the $6 million question... what can mods actually do?

Well look like someone higher up may have edited ur post, and in there rights they can do that.

and no u can not use my wording, first you are not a mod, u can not act as one also. I do understand and welcome that you try to help users, but that does not mean u can act as a mod

2ndly i posted that reply after user refused to provide his info even after asked by other mods. posting that reply from the get go while may not fall under bashing it will still be consider rude because of the simple fact that user may be new to forum and may not know how to post a issue correctly.

so kindly refrain from doing that. using words used by other mods out of context does not make it right.

i Hope that clear the issue

Regards.

well yes we do, but not all mod contact dev directly. and there is lot of mod recruiting going on currently, so it could also be a case where user is still a trail (some trail mod get title now also compare to how it was in past).
and sometime we actually ask other j.mod to still post the issue on forum even if we report it to dev, if we feel like it need to be recorded or dev we contact normally are away on holiday.

Just to be clear, we can not contact all devs just few, nor all mod can contact those devs. devs are too busy, so we need to filter and channel the info they get.

  • If I make a thank you card for the devs will you deliver it to them for me?

In this case, I can only guess some mod(s) thought it was necessary to have this issue reported through the forum for everybody else to look at. It might not be a bad idea if it would give correct and meaningful information to all the forum users. But then the question is looking at the lack of information whatsoever on that "report" thread, I tried to give all the forum users a hand by providing the (supposedly) right forum reporting procedure by quoting your EXACT response "hmm sorry but can u explain if we do not know ur IGN and server nor any screenshot u provided  how can we ask dev to have a look. or do u think dev have time to check all those hundred or thousand of account and then find your, well sadly they do not.".

The curious part is I found my reply being completely replaced by "Good thing that was fixed.", not a single word I wrote or authorized somebody else to write, and without the ID and comment of whoever edited it. It actually gave 100% misleading information to other users that I wrote it, which I completely did not.

It is puzzling why my useful information was completely taken out and replaced by words absolutely have no interests to the forum users, and not even consisted of a single word I wrote? Can a mod please explain or do you want me to ask the question formally in the Support forum or Youzu Support?

badsector27, I only quoted your EXACT reply to a similar issue in my original post as you can see from post #3 of this thread. I did not have anything "bashing someone, insulting, or something along those lines" there unless you consider yourself "bashing someone, insulting, or something along those lines".

Anyway, it was identity theft. If a mod did it please tell him/her not just not to do it again, it is identity theft. If somebody other than a Youzu/GTA employee or authorized mod did it, please make sure all my personal and in game information is completely safe from this person and his affiliates and report it to Youzu ASAP. I am bookmarking this thread and the original post for future reference to Youzu.

badsector27, I think you misread what I posted. I did not "act as a mod". I CLEARLY indicated the reply I quoted was from Senior Mod badsector27.

The other point, which is the key point, is no matter whoever "higher up" have to edit my post, even if he is President Donald Trump or Queen Elizabeth of England, he or she will still have to clearly indicate the resulting post is edited by him or her. Nobody can simply assume somebody else's identity without that person's consent and approval.

I understand your position. That's why I "support +1" your post but I do want you to realize whoever edited my post is wrong and he or she doesn't have my approval and have stolen my identity and all I want is in the future whoever edits a user's post should give proper indication and reason. Just don't do what this "higher up" person did.  Please let me know if this "higher up" person does not agree, in that case he or she did it intentionally under my identity without my consent and approval and I will pass this case over to Youzu's peson who should handle this.

Thanks.

I'm sure mods do communicate with the Dev's, if the Dev's actually respond however....that's a whole different story.

badsector27, I only need to know (1) is this "higher up" an employee of GTA and (2) when and where did we players authorize this person to assume our identities and act on behalf of us? I only need to know the answers of these 2 questions. The rest I will go through Youzu since this issue affect all the players, not just me and Youzu is the proper channel.
