Locked: Who wants to be a moderator?

Forums - Website Topics - Who wants to be a moderator?

Really now, moderation is determined by specific guidelines set in place. It's scenario dependant. There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to this, well mine is 100% right, but that's besides the point. How I would moderate any forums, I would let the first guy have his fan boy rant, but edit his post so it doesn't look like he has no idea what the CAPSLOCK key does. People with a right mind will put him in his place for his post, so let the boy troll. The second guy however is a winner. His post gets removed for flaming a personally specifically, not to mention promoting bodily harm. Real champ there. EDIT Being a parent is a job, is that not supposed to be fun? You seriously don't have a clue. I hope Wii_Gamer chooses someone with a bit more class than you, you're obviously not fit to be a mod here.

That's better but still not quite up to par from what I used to do to paying customers for doing the same thing. (I was one of the nicer mods) EDIT for your edit: Being a parent is a job. I assure you it's fun. But is it still fun when your daughter comes home knocked up stoned out of her mind on crystal meth? (being a mod has ups and downs... well really it has no ups. Just downs... you can chat as a member. Being a mod only has downs) EDIT2: Actually it does have a up. You have new viewers looking up to you.

Being a mod also has UPs. You look at moderation like it's a bad thing, and that you have to be a hard ass with no opinion, who's only job is to sit there and make sure everyone else places nice. Your personification of it can be whatever you want, but you should try and look at it from both sides, you know like an impartial moderator should. As a moderator, you are doing the community a favour by offering YOUR services to assist in the maintaining of this site, or for the sake of the argument, any site. It comes with little reward, yes, but the feeling you get for knowing you do a good job (If you do a good job) is more than enough of a reward for a good moderator.



I'd nominate stof myself, he's relatively down to earth and could probably handle the task. I'm not certain if I could nominate Kwaad in good faith, but he certainly has the time to go over the forums.

If your a mod for self gratification. Quit now. They never make the best mods. Yes, your doing the community a favor. Read the last line of my post.
EDIT2: Actually it does have a up. You have new viewers looking up to you.
Other than self gratification. There are no 'personal' perks. You do it for a community. Does that help you? No. If I hate being a mod so much. Why Am I trying to show a basic guideline as to what a good mod is? I'm not saying. Be a jerkoff to everyone. "Your post is trollish. That's your 3rd warning. Goodbye." "Your post is personally attacking someone. Goodbye." "Your post upset me. Goodbye." That's a BAD mod. VERY bad. However. "Look dude, dont be telling people to go kill themselves with scissors." And that is it. That is well... Just as bad.

Thanks dude. Your my #2 person I'd nominate. (seriously. You know the website very well, and you have a good personality) However as your #2. I'm not nominating you. As I'm not gonna nominate everyone capable. :P And I'm not gonna say who I nominated. But I dont think anyone else has that I have seen. EDIT: But he is multi platform loving, and has a slight edge for the Wii. :P

There you go taking my words out of context again. I have 2 kids under 2. I _KNOW_ I do the best job I can with them, so does that make me a bad parent for congratulating myself on molding my kids into responsible humans? You need to go to bed, because right now it's very hard to tell what end your thoughts are coming out of.

I never meant your children. That's why I used a super extreme... extreme. So it wouldnt be personal. But I know people that HAVE happend to. I know the parrents. They did everything they CAN do for them. And that happens. Bad parrent? No. Bad Kid? Yes. However that is not fun... And if you think it is, you should have your children taken away. EDIT: I am not a immature little brat kid like I act. I assure you. I was picked out of 3000 applicants... I was one of 10. That was when I had almost no history being a mod. I have a game face. I dont like it. But i have it. As a mod. Just dont force me to turn it on.

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. Congratulations.



Wii_Gamer - You should send your 'potential' mods a quiz I guess you might say. Send them the rule-book. And then like 5 or 6 'virtual' problems. The Angry user. (This website is broke and it sucks but I love the data, is there...) The Troll. (I HATE blahblahblah) The Hater. (You should die.) The opinion. (I like the Wii) See how they respond. Someone who is like a jagged rock with the rules wont work. And someone who just let's everything 'slide'... is just as bad. A happy medium needs to be found. EDIT: If you want someone to help pick a mod. (like as in forward the test results to me) I could help pick. (not myself) :P
