Yeah, the whole "hope you're all having a wonderful day!" and etc is both professional and off-putting.

Maybe they teach that in some public communications book or something, but it's so far outside of normal posting that it's jarring to the point of having the opposite effect i.e. it comes across as impersonal and distancing.

That's my impression, FWIW.

Not sure, it's how i normally greet people here in Ireland, maybe a cultural thing

I mean, it's really friendly and all that... and if I see you post more in the future I might get used to it and it could become endearing. In other words nothing personal, just being honest happy.png

Thank you AlCzervik for your reply and feedback. Much appreciated.

I hope you are keeping well and having a great day!

First off the reason for offering my direct details is so I can show the community that we genuinely care and that I'm willing to personally put in the effort to discuss and take in feedback given where people can be honest in an environment where they feel they wont be judged by public posting. Its not meant as an alternative to public feedback, it is meant as another option that shows personal interest.

Also there is already a way to post public feedback in the site feedback forums: https://www.chess.com/forum/category/site-feedback

Or through the "Help" and "Make a Suggestion" tool on the main page on bottom left.

Secondly, we can look at giving a reason for locking threads in many cases however sometimes there are private reasons for locking a thread to protect members in the community and these reasons we cannot always state publicly.

In relation to the third point mods are always held accountable to their actions and it is something they are aware of also. We have had instances in the past where ones have had to have been removed from their role for these reasons and its something we take seriously. If you encounter any issues again you can always let me know directly. Our moderators are volunteers and give of their time freely. 

Also in relation to threads and restorations, we are currently working internally on an improved system.

I hope this helps address some of your concerns

Regards
