Title: WE HAVE NEW MODS! :D:D:D
Post by: Huckbuck on August 20, 2006, 12:39:18 am
I apologize if this is allready public knowledge.

In a resent PM by Steve (as well as in the PM with porn thread) he said that they were adding new moderators, and i wondered who's it gonna be? Will he just pick a couple of active members?
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: c14dude on August 20, 2006, 12:45:12 am
i don't think steve added any new mods yet. he will probably pick one of the long time users with the most maturity
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Huckbuck on August 20, 2006, 12:54:42 am
I think he should pick Krakow Sam, hes got the most posts.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Piloteer on August 20, 2006, 01:17:18 am
Steve probably hasn't decided yet, but we may know in the next few days.

I don't think that post count matters, but rather what is in those posts, and how much maturity you have.

We can trust Steve to choose the right members.

Hopefully someone who's actually going to actively moderate the forums.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Piloteer on August 20, 2006, 01:34:10 am
I think it would be helpful to have someone moderate right now (that it, nighttime).

Because both of our Moderator's are on the East coast, it is hard to moderate during the night. It is 12:30 am where I live and while there isn't as much activity at night as there is during the day, the spam attack did happen at night.

Good point! When its morning were i live (Sweden) its night in almost the whole USA and there are many members from Europe so i think we need a European moderator.

Since when has post count been an indicator of mod suitability?

Besides, if I become I mod I wont be able to get away with being rude to people  :P

Edit: I dont know. If people think I would make a good moderator... hmmm

I don't know... isn't Daxx a bit.. i don't know... sulky? is that the word? Fault-finding? like half of the posts by him that Ive read is corrections or complains. No offense.


EDIT: Maybe Hydro would be a good modertator?
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Daxx on August 20, 2006, 09:14:58 am
I'll admit that I might come across as grumpy sometimes, but if I were picked, I would know what I was doing and I know how moderators act. I've got a ton of moderating experience on other forums, some as big as this one. This is actually the first largish forum that I've been able to enjoy sharing my opinions with others on, purely because I haven't had to restrict myself so much.

I fully support KS for moderator, btw.

EDIT:
This is beginning to sound like an electoral campaign. It's Steve's choice and none of ours. We'll just have to wait to see what he says. There are lots of reasonable choices for moderators on the boards, and I'm certain that Steve will pick someone who's right for the job. Right now, it's pretty pointless to speculate.

Post by: syphonbyte on August 20, 2006, 12:19:43 pm
Vivec would be great, but he's awake the same hours as the current mods. I think for the next moderator, somebody active in the really off times would be the best choice, and I'm sure Steve knows this.

Yeah, I don't think I was ever a mod. If I was, nobody told me. I became an Ent around June 2005, then later on Steve made LadyM and Ovi into mods, I think.

i think KS should get it, because on other forums I have been the post leader as he is on this one, and I was not moderator, and I know what it feels like to be post leader without mod. powers. You feel rejected <_<


btw @ gaming steve, more moderators is definitel the solution, on another forum I went to they had a porn attack and the mods went up from 2 to 5. No more attacks after that

PS: omgz GS almost has 1337 posts!

Was it an attack or an isolated incident?

And KS shouldn't be a mod just because he's got the highest post count. A mod should be chosen based on who will do the best job, not bassed on who's feelings might be hurt.

Post by: TheChaos7 on August 20, 2006, 10:16:22 pm
i would love to be a mod though i doubt i ever would be on anysite

not on this site because everybodys already seen how opinionated i am..and regardless to what i say (i could say i would hold back and use good grammar but that dont mean anybody has to beileve me)

on a few other ones the admins were (no joke) intimadated by my intelligence. they could not stay with me in and arguement that seemed to scare them..no idea why

i tryed really hard on this one site...thier were many mods and they casted votes to make new mos..well friends of mine who were mods always told me how great i would be..when the vote came a single friend voted for me the rest did not..we were both awestruck how could they say over and over again. how great i would be then vote AGAINST ME. people like that should never have been mods to begin with.

oh well

I did visit the Spore forum fairly frequently, until I realized that it is pointless to speculate so much about a game that will not be out for another 1-2 years.

I am still looking forward to its release, but until then, I won't really get into the game much.

We have two detectives and the president of the United States on our police force right now.

What we need to do is add some hit men. Both of them will sit back and case the joint until they get the go-ahead. Then they do some more research, walk in, and put a bullet through the offender's skull, or maybe blow his city block up.

All metaphorical, of course.

I might make a good mod. I've never done it before, and I don't think I have enough understanding of the board. (And I won't read some main message boards to save my life.) And I can be bitter, sarcastic, and easily provoked by trolls, so I don't think I should be selected.

Even if people knew who I was.

I'll admit that I might come across as grumpy sometimes, but if I were picked, I would know what I was doing and I know how moderators act. I've got a ton of moderating experience on other forums, some as big as this one. This is actually the first largish forum that I've been able to enjoy sharing my opinions with others on, purely because I haven't had to restrict myself so much.

I fully support KS for moderator, btw.

EDIT:
This is beginning to sound like an electoral campaign. It's Steve's choice and none of ours. We'll just have to wait to see what he says. There are lots of reasonable choices for moderators on the boards, and I'm certain that Steve will pick someone who's right for the job. Right now, it's pretty pointless to speculate.

Spammers shouldn't be mods.

Well it's quite easy to find out about, just click on a forumers name and look at their last posts, it's quite easy to see if what they post is spam or not.

I have to reply to this out of sensibility: I shouldn't be a mod. And neither should Daxx, KS, Uroboros, or PatMan33. We're all far too arrogant and opinionated.

GS will pick people who are frequently reading, have pleasant personalities, and don't post often at all because they know when to keep their mouths shut. None of us five fit that description.

Well, Necro is wrong anyway because we already have 2 moderators who are polite and dont post that often. What the forum needs now is hitmen, like Samog said. To make their presence known and take out the trash (metaphorically).

Besides, unlike Necro Daxx and Pat and me occasionally know when to keep our typing-mouthes shut and not say something stupid or offensive  ;)

Actually it is pretty funny.

A lot of the time, at least seven or eight times a day, I will type what I really want to say in the message box, and then just close the window.

That way I get the satisfaction of writing what I wanted to say without actually offending someone.

*Hits head against wall* Another one of my stupid jokes turned into a can of worms. I said the Necro4Mod thing as a joke. I knew he wouldn't make a good one.

As for why I said it, it's because of the paradox of him remaining in CC but having to mod in others as well. (Although at other large forums, there are dedicated mods, so my point is moot if Steve does that.)

who is that never seen that person around.
As said, its because whenever I post it'll be in one of the spore forums, normally the general one. On top of that, im rarely around here any more because I ran out of Spore-related juice. I wouldnt really want to be a moderator because there are far too many subforums to look after, and I tend to be pretty sharp on my decisions. I've never been a fan of going easy on people who blatantly step over the line, and most sites like to be patient to the point that (I personally) think it looks more like babysitting. After all, warnings only really take effect on people who heed them, so many of them down the line and the moderators will just be ignored. I personally have a bit of moderating experience, were pretty clean and groovy, but both ended in a ball of flames when other moderators were getting openly obnoxious towards me. It happens I guess. So uh, no thanks.  :P

Well, he might make what one of the forums I frequent call "Dedicated Mods" who tend to look after only one or two forum sections. (Like having a "Portable Gaming" forum dedicated mod) Of course those forums are at least 10,000 members strong and really need those people.

No, the moderators will be for the entire forum, not just a section. There are also guidelines that mods have to follow so there will be no vigilante "hitman" mods either.

It might be posted but you will know there is a new mod when the person's name appears in blue and they get the clouds instead of stars. It will probably happen quickly and quietly like it did with me and Ovi.

There is a maturity factor to being a mod more than age. I think Steve was willing to bring on more Mods but things got crazy for him and it quieted down around here. Things run pretty smoothly and then once in awhile they flare up like today. As soon as we knew it was cleaned up. There eventually will be more mods when he has time to work it out.

Um, actually it's true. Hydro's presence being so prominent on this forum is 100% because of those goddamn Nauceans, and thus popularity is derived from that, and thus making him a mod would be an incredibly hollow decision. He's a decent guy of his own right but honest to ****ing murgatroyd i'm sick of the sight of the SCC being "Naucean, Torpal, ViS and their amazing friends". The point of spore is it's diverse.. if I keep seeing this junk with the goddamn unholy trinity on it i'm going to lose my mind and think the creation corner is some sinister greetings card company churning out stock image after stock image.

My main pick would be Krakow. After that, Patman and Daxx tied for second place.

You guys need to lighten up. This is probably a good example of why we don't have new mods yet. Bliz was not far off thinking of Hydro, I thought of him too once and he said he wasn't interested. This was last summer when the talk of new mods was going on.

Can everyone just be nice now.

Hydro is obviously trying to romance LadyM.

Chew on that for a while.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: /lurk on March 25, 2007, 02:47:18 pm
Come to think of it, if you only want someone to moderate the Spore forums, you could have just about anyone that doesn't post there. But for the rest of the forum, choosing a new moderator is a difficult task.

I don't envy Steve for making that decision. I'm not sure that there's anyone who would be appropriate for the position.


But something needs to be done.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Krakow Sam on March 25, 2007, 02:49:33 pm
Well, it was said last time that LadyM and Ovi are more the quiet sort of moderators that lead by example and quietly tidy up, and that what this forum may need is a mod who kicks ass and takes names... I guess its still pertinent.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: LadyM on March 25, 2007, 02:50:55 pm
Hydro was one of several that I thought of to submit to Steve. There were about 5-6 people on the list.

I'm not sure what problem your talking about Pat, if you want to pm me the details, that would be nice. The only problem I'm seeing lately is alot of cranky males.

I'm getting the feeling that you all don't think we are doing our jobs. I want to remind you again that we mod the way Steve wants us to mod. He is not a strict admin. Anyone who becomes a mod will have to follow the same guidelines that Ovi and I do. Steve does not want a kick ass/take names mod. A mod just can't come in and do what they want, they have to do it Steve's way. He wants us to be nice and thats what we are until action needs to be taken.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: PatMan33 on March 25, 2007, 02:59:25 pm
The problem has been mentioned already, Lurk just nailed it on the head.

Not every situation can be handled by just gently coercing the problem into a more workable position. Someone needs to kick ass and take names and deal out suspensions.


I'm just going off on things right now, I feel a bit better and most of that stuff I said is nothing I didn't say last time this happened... although I said it again so I think I feel strongly about at least a little of it. However I won't lose sleep if nothing is done.

Hey! I'd be good. I would just have to defer my moderator status to one of the others when involved in arguments with creationists and other purveyors of ignorance.

Yeah, that's what most forums I've frequented do.

If you have to post in a controversial topic on one side of an argument or another, you lose all mod priviledges for that thread. No-one can complain of mod abuse.

I for one am really against this attitude that says, "moderators should be emotionless, unthinking drones who cannot express their opinions". If you can't trust a moderator to be mature in a discussion or debate, then why are they a moderator? I'm not saying I'm incapable of being a mindless drone, but the problem is that you're basically throwing away a decent and respected member. Having worked with a lot of other moderators in the past I know that any moderator who abuses his/her position risks losing it and having the associated ignominy that goes along with losing that status, and so doesn't. There is no reason why a moderator should not be able to contribute to a discussion, and it's sad that we don't get to hear more from Ovi or LadyM.

EDIT:
Hydro is, no offence buddy, not a good candidate for being a moderator. The only reason he is respected is because he's an artist who posted a cool creature. It's not like he's demonstrated that he can be mature, sensible or whatever. I mean, it's not like there's any reason to choose him above other members.

EDIT EDIT:
I'm aware that this is Steve's forum, and it's not my place to tell him how to run it. The above is just my opinion, is all.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Werechicken on March 25, 2007, 03:31:27 pm
Hydro's a good choice because most people know him but almost no-one's had any negative experiences with him, he doesn't usually take part in the active debates and spends a fair chunk of time in the spore forum, out of all the current members he's the one who if appointed to moderator would be met with least resistance.
Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: PatMan33 on March 25, 2007, 03:34:23 pm
Probably... I'm just sick of seeing the mods getting walked all over by people who don't care about the rules.

They need to start suspending people for breaking rules and not telling them to be nice. Steve can't possibly tell them how to do their jobs when he has no idea how things work around here.

God, do NOT start with the whole gender supremacy thing. Neither is better than the other in any way, leave it at that.

Don't put words in my mouth, there is nothing about what I said that indicates gender supremacy or that one is better than the other. I simply said that the males here are cranky and I stand behind that.

You want to know how I got picked as a mod, Steve asked me. He noticed the way I acted on the forum, I don't correct spelling or grammer, I accept people for who they are and I don't pick apart every little thing they say or do wrong. I try to be helpful to new people. It's really sad to see new people come here and get jumped on by a pack of wolves. They might spam and they might do a few things they shouldn't but wouldn't it be better to help them out rather than attack them on every little thing they do? You're not going to stop the inflow of new people, there are going to be more. Then you ask them to step out of the spore forum and try the other boards so they do and they get picked on. I just wonder how many people have been chased away.

It's funny you think we are too nice and yet I'm talked about behind my back, I've been called a bitch, accused of being on a power trip and too controlling and I've had really nasty messages left in my pm box. Go figure.



Title: Re: Who are the new Moderators?
Post by: Luminar on March 25, 2007, 05:00:19 pm
I didn't say you were a bitch and if anything my opinion is that you don't use your power enough.
On a side note, who the hell is saying that ****? I mean, if I might be brutally honest here, to my eye you're something of a non-entity. I don't know practically anything about you and I can't seem to determine your personality at all, and my gut feeling tells me that's the way you want it, which is fine - privacy is practically a luxury for me so I know not to go sticking my fingers in other people's affairs.

My thought process on you is as thus: I can't tell who you are. Therefore, I have solely my internal judgements to go off. Said judgements by their nature are usually inaccurate. Therefore, they are not to be used in words or actions involving you directly. I go purely off your actions.

Additionally, this is kind of a refreshing outburst (not a bad outburst) since now I know where you stand, though I do admit feeling a bit guilty in that I seem to have pronged you into it, so apologies if I was hasty or harsh - I do stand by my statement that gender has nothing to do with it, though. There's like.. you, Great Distance and Guilmon. The scales are too skewed to really make a judgement based on gender.

I doubt anyone in this discussion has said anything offensive to you, M, and I would be exceptionally surprised if they had.

This is sad, frankly. I accept the way Steve runs things, even if I think they could stand to be improved somewhat (hell, I wouldn't be making suggestions if I didn't think it would help). I just won't bother in the future, because it's obvious nothing's going to change.

So how about we just let it go.



Besides I think she was just trying to lighten the mood with that comment.



Everyone had some steam built up and we all decided to let it go today on an easy target. Okay, it happened, so let's just move right along. Sometimes that's what happens and someone's head gets lopped off but we might as well keep going instead of letting it stop everything.

I've calmed down now.

@ Luminar - I appreciate your comments and no, it wasn't you who called me that. I guess the forum consisting of mostly males tends to make me think that way. The females here come and go.

@ Daxx -No one in this discussion said those things to me but they were said none the less and by more than one person. Usually in response to being called down on something. I use to keep the warnings in pms but I've started doing it a little more publicly, not sure anyone has noticed.

I think suggestions are good, I wouldn't say that things won't change but they might change slower than you think. I'm in the process of writing Steve with all the suggestions and discussions that have come up this weekend so we'll see what happens.

@ Patman - thank you for that  :)

I obviously missed most of what happened so I don't completely know what happened but i have to say I'm happy with the way things are run around here. If someone wants to join the forum and spam up a storm neither reacting via pulling them aside and having a quiet word or raining almighty fury down on them wont deter them they just want to spam and care not for consequences. If they are making innocent mistakes they just need a quiet word to set the straight and if they plan on becoming a regular at the forum thats all that should really be needed.

The only reason extra mods should be needed is because LadyM and Ovi can't be here 24/7 and it might pay to have someone here almost always that way a problem can be quickly attended to. The style for moderating this place with works we have the occasional outburst from trouble makers but its not like we can maintain a Utopia no matter what what style is used.

I only just noticed Danzik was a moderator just now, and decided to wander briefly into the untamed wilds of "Site News". I wonder how long they've been moderators. Its just like me to notice a small detail like that, so I might have to hunt down all records of nasty things I said about KS behind his back, before he can locate them...
*contemplative chin-scratch here*

Still, congratulations both of you, regardless of how late I am!

I was checking out some thread and though "hey! a post by a mod, it must be Ovi" but a milisecond later I noticed the post count was to low and half a milisecond later I noticed the avatar was Danziks. I scrolled down a bit and saw a post by KS and thought the whole world had gone nuts (or gone mod's), I then checked all possible places for anouncements of new mods, but there werent any, so I bumped this topic.

Oh, and I forgott to say congratulations  :P

We have three new moderators.

Cobra
Gec
OpDDay2001

As you know, Danzik stepped down so this now brings our total to six. Please give them the same respect and help that you give the rest of us. If you aren't familiar with OpDDay2001, he resides mostly in the Spore section and will be working mostly in that area.

Hey.. I just accidentally noticed too. Who knew there forums existed outside of the Spore ones? I joke, I joke. I'll try to pop into other forums, but it's hard for me because the hierarchy is already established there. It's hard for me to jump into old threads with conversations spanning pages and people already broken up into "sides" and new posts tend to wither away, so that's why I mainly stuck to the Spore Forums.

Aww come on. It's not that bad. I don't demand any special treatment. Just a small amount of respect, admiration, and fear. A bi-weekly donation of your weekly allowance, 10% of your earnings, or a one-time payment of your soul. Nothing major or anything. Grovelling couldn't hurt either.. oh and the smell of fear-induced sweat whenever I enter the room... and cowering into a corner with head low when I pass. If it's not to much trouble a pee stain on your trousers caused by the sheer fear I instill would be awesome, but otherwise nothing major.

I kid, I kid. You hope.

Why?

Pat's influence over the forum is such that he doesn't even need mod powers. He is the Bat he doesn't need Powers he just kicks that much ass.

its expected pat isnt a mod; too much power already, as stated. and hydro is pretty much irrelevant at this point.



I like the new mods, but im scared now that cobra is a mod.

Plus they're stupid. If we did anything we'd have an Electoral College because that will work.

Members of eighteen months and a minimum one thousand posts are given a vote.

They then vote among members who currently have mod status.

The mods with the top three vote counts then choose the new mod by two-thirds vote.

Hey, this all sounds rather depressing. Gaming Steve is like a family. Let's keep it that way. I think we can trust the decisions Steve and LadyM make.

I don't think there is anything wrong with what Mr. C is suggesting, but it isn't really necessary at this point.

Your right, it needs to be 1337. Your officially an oldie when you see yourself with a leet post count.
When you have 31337 you become a mod by your own right, just look at Patman and thats with just 20707.
