You ask, and we answer. Got a question or feedback for this site? Post a confession with the keyword MODS (yes, it must have the S) and it will be featured in next weeks blog!
Q:MODS: my confession about military being able to use taxslayer, H&Rblock, Taxact and other tax services for free. I wasn't advertising for any company, responding to a post, or breaking any of the other rules. Why was is not approved?
A: It was a response directed at a user who mentioned how much she spent filing taxes. You specifically referenced that confession, therefore it was considered a response.
Q:MODS: is everything alright? Updates on the body board look like they've gone down to 1-2x a day. Or is there a lack of confessions coming in?
A: Everything’s fine. Saturdays and Sundays only get three updates. I appreciate your concern though. The body board has slowed down a bit, I think everyone is working on their new years resolutions :D
Q:MODS: Why was confession #62222 in Single not published?
A: We don’t post confessions that belittle a group of people or claim another people to be superior.
Q:Mods-please do something about the user user. He's ritually abusive in comments. I've never seen anything remotely nice come from this person. He's hateful.
A: I absolutely agree with you, but he’s not swearing at anyone, name calling, or breaking any rules I can see. The comments are where we allow users to respond to posts and hold their conversations. Unfortunately many, if not most, of our users choose not to be supportive in the comments. I really wish that were different.
Q:I am shocked by some of the vile comments truu monitors allow through, yet they reject positive comments that don't further agenda.
A: We don’t moderate comments, if your comments are not getting through it’s most likely an issue on your end.
Q:MODS......661738 is a response post to ###. Remember that whole ban IP address's thing? That is a direct swipe at users comment in ###.
A: Done. Thanks for the heads up
Q:MODS, what is the updating schedule for truu now?
A: Weekends the site should be updated by 9:00 am, (all times are EST), 12:00, 3:00, 5:00, and eleven. That last time tends to be closer to 7 or eight, but I try to wait as long as I can since it’s the biggest gap between confessions. Weekends are updated by noon, five (typically three-ish) and eleven (with the same addendum as above).
Today that did not happen, and I really appreciate everyone’s patience with the late morning update. My daughter was up all night sick, which meant I was also up all night, and I slept through the morning udpate. I’m really sorry for any inconvenience.
Q:MODS.......66136 is a direct response to 616304. This is really really getting old. Can we please start banning these idiots? They know they are posting against the rules, that is why they are not doing it under their screen name....
A: actually the second one shouldn’t have been published either. Sorry about that. I can definitely see that confession could be a response so I’ve removed it, but it’s not specific enough to ban someone over. They actually could have just been talking about someone they know. Thanks for making me aware of it though :)
Q:MODS: just out of curiosity - how many unique users are there on Truu, and in an average week how many of those users are active?
A: I’m not sure, so many users are anonymous. I’m sure there is a way to track how many people are visiting and posting on our site. I’ll email our tech guy and see what he says.
Q:MODS, confession ### is a direct attack on a user who's avatar is Super Mom)
A: I appreciate your concern, but given that the confession was about a mother at her preschool... I just don’t think that’s the case. I’ve called people Supermom before I ever discovered this website. I’m going to err on the side of caution and leave it at this point.
MODS: thanks for the message about removing comment 1694809 and warning the commenter. Would you please actually remove the comment now? I don't really like that it's out there.
A: Sorry! Complete glitch on my end, the comment should definitely be removed now.
Q: Mods: Thanks
A: You’re welcome!
Q: MODS what is your favorite kind of confession to see/read?
A: I love the funny confessions! Like the one about the little boy playing power rangers in the parking lot. If it makes me laugh, I love it.
Q:MODS......Mods.....confession 660662 is a direct (and downright NASTY) response confession to ###. Seriously........someone was a bitch anonymously. You know that whole "we will ban IP's " thing? That person could probably use a banning or two.
A: Done, thanks for the heads up. The good news is this is less than last week, so either the people who do this routinely are getting banned (yay) or I’m getting better at catching responses. Either way, yay success
Q:Mods, no one cares whether or not SAHM's should get paid, or what they're supposedly worth. Can we please kill this?
A: It died out on its own.
Q:I wish the Mods would update this site more.
A: We’re working on that. Hopefully you guys will see some positive changes in the coming months.
Q:mods: how come some confessions have "related tags" (sometimes none of which even have anything to do with the confession at all), while others confessions don't have any tags? just curious.
A: Oh gosh, those annoy me too. When they redid our website it was supposed to make things easier, so you could just click the tag MIL and read every confession about mother-in-laws. Well, here’s the thing. We can’t edit them, and they aren’t that... smart. MIL also tags military, or million, or anything with those letters in them.
