Locked: The moderator team here is not doing their job

Forums - Website Topics - The moderator team here is not doing their job

I think situation on forum is under control. It's far better since Mods arrived. I was skeptical about some of them but I have to admit they are pretty unbiased. No need to criticize. As ioi pointed it's not a full time job so I think everybody should be a bit more charitable. Many guys here expect much but don't give anything.

I think it's good idea to split mods in teams (for example - off-topic section, sales section etc.) it would minimize dissension for sure

As for banning. Yes, there are a few people in here that tend to be at the route of most problems. But their only the route because of how other people choose to respond in an even poorer manner. Kwaad and Hus are by no means a valuable contribution to the board, but you know that old "first sinner cast the first stone thing"? Well a lot of people are too busy hurling stones to realize that well... they shouldn't be hurling stones. 


Agree, but mayby it is time to also ban those that respond with idiot lines. Then Hus or Kwaad or whatever have to respond to those that really wants to get the line discussion going.

Other than that I do think you all need more help, it is not your fault a someone calling himself wiisucks registrate and then does 12 post in 12 minuts with the only purpose to start a flame war, when you aren't online.

If we had 100 mods that would still have happened. We'd do well to have one mod active every minute of every day. When the mod team starts getting large you have issues with disagreement amongst themselves and effectively moderating the mods. It all gets a bit silly then. I think we have enough mods and I think they have done a good job but maybe time has come to ban a couple of continual offenders...



Do we even have a lot of deleted posts? If so I didn't notice them that much. I think those could go a long way to stop some decent people from freeweeling. They have to be visible though, not just empty boxes.

Hardcore gaming is a bubble economy blown up by Microsoft's $7 $6 billion losses.

Being a mod, I primarily do the prediction league stuff. I probably see more of the flambaiting than anyone else, despite the fact I don't get a ton of time to do stuff.

 However, most posts are enjoyable, even the "PS3's future" threads.

The issue aren't the threads, but the people discussing in the threads.

I'll try to start locking more threads and banning more people that are unsavory. I just took care of Wiisucks for a few days. I always let the other mods take care of stuff, but I'll try to get a few more taken care of.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

here's an idea to improve things:

don't lock threads that we are in the middle of a discussion on!! *glares at mrstickball*



Help! I'm stuck in a forum signature!

I personally would like to respond by saying I saw this coming.  I banned Kwaad weeks(or has it been months?) ago and there was a huge outcry by the users that it was unfair and that he should be unbanned, which he was.

 It was at that point that I realized I didn't have any power over users because you didn't want me to.

 If you guys want us to moderate, there is a sort of unspoken agreement that you will accept our decisions.  You can't pick and choose which ones you like and which ones you don't.

 That's pretty much why I haven't been moderating much recently.

I completely understand this, but don't deny us the right to bitch ;)

To be hoenst though, we were in the middle of a conversation and the thread just got locked, I could understand if it became a full-on flamefest but it was civil and (I thought) quite interesting.

There are plenty of threads which I would have expected to get locked long ago that didn't, and I was quite surprsed that it was the "Future of PS3" thread that got locked.

The forums here are getting ridiculous, and need to be cleaned up.

The moderators here have shown time and time again, that they are not willing, or not able to handle the negativity here, allowing a team of 2 to 4 trolls to dominate the forum, and drive away any legitimacy that this site MIGHT ever gain.

 If you want this site to work, grow a set, and start rolling the BanWagon.

 

Case in point, as of right now, as documented in View All Users, no moderators are logged in.


Youre crazy?

Thers no more negativize that spell troll the people, go to germany in 30' and say 'Jew'....

You rang?

(To tune of "Spiderman")

Super Jew, Super Jew
Does the things a Jew can do
Files your taxes fairly quick,
He can even cure the sick!
Mazel Tov! He's Super Jew


He's not old, but he is wise
Yes, he has been circumcized
His rabbi taught him every lesson
His parents run a delicatessen
Oy! He's Super Jew

Need an answer? He's got two
He's the amazing Super Jew
He can solve your every plight
Unless it's a Friday night
L'Chaim! He's Super Jew

BRIDGE!
He'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain--- wait, that's not Super Jew

What's his weapon? He's got none
He uses wit instead of a gun
So heed this warning anti-semites
Engage with him and see the light
Oh yeah, he's Super Jew


Oy vey! I'm Super Jew!
