I think the underlying issue is what Jeff stated; editorial coverage. Which is why the technical aspects of the site really need some work as well. Releases should be able to be linked to articles and lists, so that users can either link a specific release or the more general page. Just a thought, though.
@Unknown_Pleasures: Yes, of course you're never going to have a ruleset that pleases everyone. The problem is, the rules were never clear in the first place. There are very little set rules, with numerous inconsistencies. Again, the staff was contacted on numerous occasions regarding these inconsistencies and the instances of unclear clauses in the rules. There were never any responses, or very limited. So rather than waiting (as the site has been around for almost two years now), the mods have taken matters into their own hands.
@Unknown_Pleasures: The thing is... these have been issues since the sites conception. Plus, both users and mods have tried to contact the staff (not limited to Jeff) on multiple occasions, something which I know from both experience and reports from other mods. Due to this, it was discussed and decided by the mods to revise the rules (who were given the authority to do so by coonce). These aren't recently arising issues, they have been longstanding issues that have been consistently discussed and never clarified by any member of the staff.
