Locked: My Goal as Mod

Forums - Website Topics - My Goal as Mod

I've noticed some issues with some members on ioi's decision on making me a mod. Most state thinking that I'm a "Sony Fanboy" when I think the list of PC games in my sig says otherwise, but whats the point in arguing.

I figured I would take the time out and post a thread on my overall goal and plan on as a mod on these forums.

My general plan is to clean up these forums. Is it as simple as that? Nope. I'm trying to take a proactive stance on managing these forums. Cut possible flame-wars and troll feasts at their ankles before they start getting out of hand. 

If some of you thing I'm going to go ban happy and ban all "None Sony Fans" you are greatly mistaken. I, just like all the other mods, will warn/ban gamers in all 4 camps (PC, PS3, Wii, and 360); but, I plan on attempting to discuss issues with problematic members before a warning unless said member has receive multiple reports from members. One report wont grant a warning. 

Another thing that makes my system different is that my warnings can be repealed. If the member sends me a very well written message defending his or her post then I will gladly repeal it.

 Is the only requirement that the response has to be well written or does have to be well written and a good excuse?  If it's the first, man I could have fun on these forums. 



Ioi promoted you guys to work on the News and Game Database didnt he? I never heard him mention 'cleaning up the forums'?
Also I believe he posted that all bans should be approved by him, Stof or Bk unless under extreme circumstances?

Why are you going Nato on the forums? o.O

(I may have entirely misunderstood your or Ioi's intentions so, this is a genuine question)

 Yea I still need ban approval unless its the most extreme situation. Yea I have been cleaning up the game database, I have cleared out about 90 games. He isn't stopping any mods from warning people and discussing with them what they did wrong.

Its just that your moderation of Crazzy and Happy in that thread seemed to be more extreme than the normal moderation on this site, neither of them had resorted to personal insults or anything, they were just debating werent they? (Unless something was edited out of their posts?)



What do you mean by cleaning up the game database? I'm not familiar with this ish.
