Why does this forum feel so unmoderated?

@moderators this forum seems orphaned when it comes to moderation… I am currious why…

Two things that realy annoy me is:
Spam remains for ever - no one is cleaning the mess up. Spammer accounts seem hardly be blocked or deleted.
Lewish95 (which is obviosuly a bot) steals content from all arround the web without marking the original source.

There is a whole team of moderators and docker staff in the forum, but their involvement seem to be limited to dropping announcement every now and then.

Is this forum owned and operated by Docker or by Mirantis?

I have to second this view.

As an admin on another Discourse site I have all of the Discourse privileges and have also installed development and production versions of Discourse so know how to access the data as SQL from the database, restart the Docker containers, etc. In short I know what can and can not be done on a Discourse forum. Additionally I visit many other non-Discourse forums each day and this is the most left by the side of the road forum I use.

I use to come here to keep a pulse on what is happening with Docker but now come here to see how a site is like a lawless town of the old west functions. Knowing that Lewish95 is a bot is really interesting as it just goes to give multiple points of evidence that the moderators don’t even care about the site policies, namely

You may not post anything digital that belongs to someone else without permission. You may not post descriptions of, links to, or methods for stealing someone’s intellectual property (software, video, audio, images), or for breaking any other law.

So while I would like to see this site return to being the site the users expect of a site with a hostname of forums.docker.com until such changes take place it is now just a psychology experiment.

@moderators … and another one… Isn’t docker open source driven? Can it be realy that hard to find volunteers that fill in the position as acting moderators?

I would help digging the post.
The spammer is still there on the loose; if I can pin this topic, I would do it already.

Also, am I the only one for whom the huge header on top of this forum is blocking proper navigation?

No


Now for the required 20 minimum number of characters.

Can you provide an example for the problem?
I usualy click on categories in the burger menu to get back to the categories overview.

Appart from that: I gave up on this forum. It is time to let others perform the artificial ventilation for this forum ^^
