You served?

It was a tongue-in-cheek remark followed by a tongue out of cheek emoji.

So that's like a double negative isn't it?

heh, typical Rol

Gotta admit that sig change Miguel gave you was pretty funny though

I'll let you decide what I meant. It's layered.



Some of these moderators I've literally never seen...

Thanks for giving us this platform, it's pretty good.

Minor suggestion is to decouple some questions. For example, I might rate one person high on "this moderator demonstrates good judgment" and then low on "demonstrates consistency when applying rules."

When both are combined, it's harder to slice.

Just wanted to step out and say that yes, I am a pretty bad mod, and I can admit that fact.

I'm simply not active, and I don't take action.

What I wanted to get out of my chest is that despite my name, I am NOT a Nintendo drone/Nintendo fanboy.

If you had seen how I reacted when Nintendo said Splatoon would not have private lobbies on launch, you people would think I'm some 5 year old Minecraft kid who hates Nintendo or something.

I hated Nintendo when they tried to get rid of Melee from EVO, Miyamoto's quote of "a delayed game is eventually good" made me roll my eyes, and then made me facepalm when Star Fox Zero got a 70 on Meta, and ALMOST all of Nintendo's games this year have been mediocre at best.

That's all, just wanted to get that off my chest.



I'll copy a little what Rol did and give my thoughts. 

Some mods I'll leave out because they do not post enough, which says alot actually.. I'm mostly going to focus on the best and those that need to go. 

Top tier mods: 

Carl, Raven
I know Carl deals extensively well with "the voice of the voiceless." If people have complaints and send to PM, he responds well to them. He also is unbias in platform and knows when to send a warning and to actually moderate. Raven as well has a really good track record for platforms. He's not afraid to moderate and has shown good consistency as a moderator. 

Need to go &or Shown Slight improvement

Starocean, CGI, Ultra
I'll keep it concise. Star ocean has shown a lot of really negative and insulting comment towards some members. Most of which should not be said by a mod and would be moderated by any other user. CGI, shows heavy bias towards PS. Numerous times I've seen warnings to threads for PS members (constant warnings for those individuals), while that same leniency hasn't been shown for others. And sometimes he refuses to moderate and continues to throw out warnings in threads. I understand the want to warn, instead of going straight to a ban, but there comes a time while you need to moderate. Despite all of this, I feel he has shown improvement. Ultra, all I see are spambot bans, and rarely moderates people. Recently saw a post where a member called someone I beleive a "two faced faggot?" Ultra posted afterwards and I noticed he did not ban him, this is only one example, but there have been many other times where I just do not see him moderating at all. 

Slight improvement: CGI
Needs to go: StarOcean, Ultra 

**No hard feelings, just being honest.

Why would people think that based on your name? I just thought you had a magic mushroom addiction or something



I've done my part.

I've taken a screenshot of each question with my answers.

Things that I've noticed within the past year that have irked me and have not been resolved (and probably wont due to the fact who it is against)

-My thread from Last december was locked multiple times and re-opened many times without advanced warning or reasoning.
-The same thread had its title changed numerous times by a moderator with no update/warning via a post or even a PM - and despite other threads being made with a similar name/title for other games - my thread was the only exception for whatever reason.
-I contacted a certain moderator (who I assume is the one who's been making the changes) and that individual treated me like a second rate member who had been permabanned and was not invited to the community.
-This person has alienated me a few times since then through forum posts/threads that were made days, weeks and months after the incident and stopped responding to my PMs.

I wont name the mod due to the chance of retaliation but he knows who he is.

I'll probably get banned/moderated for this anyways but there's no one else I can say this to (whether they are part of the mod team or the regular community) so I'll just post my frustration which has been bothering me for a while here.

It's just a weird hunch I have, maybe I'm overthinking it, but sometimes I feel like I come off as a Nintendo fan, when I'm not a fan of any company.

Doesn't help that I was a very active member of NintenDomination.
