Hey Kev, thanks for your post. We agree that there isn't really an easy way to enforce rule 1 and it can appear discretionary. All deletions and bans for non-MH101 content was halted immediately after users were upset by it.

We didn't have a system in place, we were all doing our own thing and going with what we felt. So, we got together and decided to work together more closely as a team.

So to address your first point, I can't tell a difference. But that doesn't mean that it is cause to abandon it. The problem wasn't what was being deleted, it was the lack of uniformity in doing so. That was the problem, not the rule itself. So, we fixed the problem.

We have been working on this over the last few days and trying to figure out a system. We have one and it should work. I can't detail it because it can be gamed which will then allow people to circumvent it.

You advocate for a system that was utilized for a long time. What did you think was happening before the four recent deletions? Just because you didn't see it, doesn't mean it wasn't utilized in the past. User complaints led to a change.

How is this transparent? I hope you can appreciate that this seems like "secret rules". Why is encouraging users to police the sub not an option. The majority of your users are against you guys deleting anything besides spam. Why are you insisting on it?

It's unfortunate that people game the system. Nothing malicious is being done.

Indeed we can. But nothing is forever. If it doesn't work, something else can be done.

Why is encouraging users to police the sub not an option.

Because this was already done and people were unhappy. So now there is something new being tried.

I don't think you understand that not everyone speaks their mind publicly.

As you can see below, this has not been resolved.
