    No response from a mod or the mysterious community manager. I guess no one is actually watching the site.

      I'm here Ken, was away yesterday though so didn't check the site.

      Whilst I'm on though, I've replied to a previous comment of yours. Would you be interested in being a moderator?

        Thanks for dropping in. Any thoughts on the comments raised here?

          I don't check every single story, so I can't say how many list-icles there are. There are some that can be helpful though, so it's very difficult to draw a line like Catalin said!

          I don't rely on people reporting posts, comments or users, however, it definitely helps, especially if something is missed! We are only human at the end of the day.

            Well, I guess that's contradictory then. The guidelines clearly say that such articles are not welcome, but then you say some are ok. Which is it?

              It's not contradictory at all Ken, the guidelines clearly state as follows: "We realize there is a bit of gray area regarding both appropriate and beneficial content. The following types of stories are frowned upon, and subject to moderation"

              Posts in this 'gray area' are 'subject' to moderation. That doesn't mean instantly remove and ban, it means we have a look and take action where necessary.

        Thanks for the offer, but at the moment, I am unable to devote the time to it. In all honesty, I would probably be too heavy-handed anyway.

      I saw on that Spenser dude's twitter that he is 'formerly' at designernews, so something clearly didnt work out there. My guess is that the admins/mods want to change stuff but the people who own this site dont really want to allocate any time for the devs to this site.
