    Question Let's talk about the Moderator and Guide situation.

    TL;DR for the Tapatalk Crowd: Should we be getting New Mods and Guides in soon?

    As some of you have probably noticed, the staff around here is very small. There's only 7 moderators, and 3 guides. Of the moderators, there's really only 3 (Max, Wu, and GNC) that regularly patrol the forum. Darth and Death only post once in a blue moon, the ancient gamer is really only active in the POTUS thread, and Matther777 is off doing God knows what. The Guide situation is even worse, with Kahhhhyle being the only guide who posts regularly at all. Draco Breach very rarely posts any more, and I'm not even sure PKUltima even cares about this place anymore.

    Now, I know I've been snarky about the mods here a few times, but I do it out of concern. I like this place, and I want to make sure it's well moderated and staffed. I am also aware that there have been very few situations here recently that have required a mod to step in. What I'm wondering is should some new Mods and Guides be selected sometime soon. Feel free to discuss this further!

    (INB4 the joke posts about making Skyward or Joey Roddy a mod)

    It only makes sense to reevaluate the staff once in a while, especially now that we have rewamped the forums.

    I think he just wants mods so he can shut down opinions he doesn't agree with. Who wants more scrutiny? We are all adults. And Woody is like a super adult because he's very old.

    I want mods because what if a malicious troll shows up?

    And I have no issues with other people's opinions, unless you are belittling others for having opposite opinions.

    If a troll shows up either ignore it or block it. You don't need an outside party for that.

    If it were a straight up blatant troll I'd have no qualms with banning him but we'll take this into consideration. That's what this section is here for

    kinda, some mods that dont actively post on the forums will post when we all get together and discuss a report that needs to be talked about or voted on.

    Sounds like Day of the Triffids. The movie is sort of dumb, but the book is quite good. It's the zombie apocalypse before that was a thing.

    1. It's not like we could get ahold of Phases to make new mods and guides, anyway.

    2. Being a mod is not all it's cracked up to be. It's not really fun at all. That's why I'm not a mod anymore.

    Like I've said before, if a real, malicious troll showed up, the mods we have would kick it into gear. As a previous mod, I can testify that when things are going on, there is more going on behind the scenes than what you guys see. I know most of them aren't as active as they used to be, but I'm confident that the ones we have around could take care of things. As soon as they noticed something going on, they'd raise up whatever mods they could find and get it taken care of.

    Well, I guess we don't need police officers either. We can all just "ignore or block" the criminals.

    But seriously, Drew, of course you need mods. There are things that go on behind the scenes that we don't even know about because the mods clean it up so fast. I've seen forums where people have went on posting porn and all kinds of vile stuff. Sure, we don't have many kids here but it still is something that needs to be prevented.

    I don't really know if we need more mods, or if we need our current mods to show their faces more often. I understand that there are more important things in life than a forum, but it wouldn't hurt some of the current mods to try to post a bit more just to show to everyone (especially those concerned about a lack of mods) that they're still here and available.

    Guides help with organization mostly. Helping to keep threads in the right spots, we can fix thread titles that hare spelled wrong or whatever. Moderators can do all that plus disciplinary stuff like bans, probations, and so forth.

    Seems like it would be more beneficial for Kahhhhyle to be a mod than a guide. I think he'd make a good one.

    Not the same thing. Don't be a drama queen. Comparing an internet mod to a policeman or woman who risk their lives to help people is frankly quite insulting to law enforcement.

    Obviously it was a joke, but the point stands that they are a necessity. Did you realize that if things weren't kept up to a certain standard on a forums that law enforcement actually could be involved? So things can actually get serious.

    But I am literally so tired of the way you talk to me and everyone else that I'm just going to put you on my ignore list.

    Patrick Swayze taught him how to skydive.

    Sorry he's offended, but that's not a good comparison, and considering a couple of cops died in Virginia recently, so it's in bad taste if it was a joke.

    Plus, he blocked me, which means he took care of the problem himself. He didn't need a mod for that, correct?

    One specific person having an issue with another specific person isn't what mods are for though. You're right that's what the ignore button is there for. Mods are meant to keep the peace if it get's out of hand with an argument (we've come somewhat close to that in the POTUS thread) or for trolling and other obvious things. But like they've stated, things have been pretty chill here. There was a point when we probably needed to have at least one mod available at all points of the day, but I don't really know that it needs to be that way now.

    And for the record, I'm gonna start college in 9 days so if you want mods who are gonna be active, the first 2 weeks of that are going to be hell for me, not sure what it'll be like after that tho.

    I'm sorry Cloud was offended as that wasn't my intent. I don't like disrespect for police or soldiers though but sometimes internet humor falls flat. I'm willing to mend fences if he is.
