Forums - Website Topics - Moderator announcements

A few announcements:

I am going to seperate moderators from contributors soon. All moderators can be contributors but we are looking to put together a team of contributors who will not be mods - they will just be able to add certain content to this site.

In light of this and some other changes, I have removed moderator status from 3 mods:

  • ckmlb - he never really wanted to be a moderator and would work better on the site as a contributor (if that is what he wants to do
  • BlindSight - ditto, as far as I am aware he rarely uses forums etc and would work better as a contributor
  • fishamaphone - same deal, works well as a contributor but uses the site only on occasion

I have added two new moderators:

  • twesterm
  • Bodhesatva

I may be adding 1-2 more in the coming weeks just to keep 24 hour cover on the site and expand the team.

In terms of structure, all moderators are equal in terms of what powers they have except for:

  • Stof - head moderator
  • Benkenobi - head moderator
  • DK II - super moderator
  • Me

Essentially Stof and Ben are regular users and will be there for other moderators to talk to regarding decisions over bans. They will make the final decision on most things and I fully trust their judgement.

DKII is who they go to for bigger decisions, but like me will not be regularly getting involved with day to day moderating. All three will be set up to receive emails from mods@vgchartz.com for those who want to get clarification on decisions) and obviously anything above those three I will (very occasionally) step in and deal with.

Hopefully this all makes sense, please welcome the new mods!

hehe. Poor bod.

Sounds like a good idea ioi.



I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

Maybe you should add some people from Asia? Because they can moderate the other half of the day.

Congrats to twestern and Bodhesatva,  they're very fair and level headed and will no doubt make great mods.



See, but Twesterm, I was not expecting that one!

Boysee woysee!

We already have two moderators from Asia. Plus, people from Asia don't always speak, ya know, English. 



 

 

Sounds good.

I would also make it obligatory that bans given out to members with a certain number of posts can only be given out finally by the head moderators, especially longer bans. Like that, we wouldn't have the trouble anymore that we had after Rol's ban.
