The vote closes 6/27/05.

One vote per customer.

In an effort to get the mod system up and rolling as soon as possible, we have chosen members out of the nomination thread to be voted on. Hence, some of those nominated there have been left out. There is no individual reason for this and we understand that we may have overlooked someone deserving in the process. For those left out, please know that no judgement has been made against you and there will be future opportunities to be mods.

** Update: There will be two moderators per forum. The moderator that gets the most votes gets first pick, and then down the line until all the slots are full.

Arrrgh. Choosing between Endymion, HornyPope, and Mota Boy was way too difficult. Anyway, most of the choices look great, so no need to worry.

That's what I would like to know too. Will you choose the people who receive the most votes? And if so, how do we decide who mods which part of the forums? Matter of agreement?

Your racist rant probably disqualified you from the running. We know it was in jest and apologies have been accepted, but I seriously doubt most of the board would have voted for you after that. No offense, just trying to let you know.

I noticed, but the original message still said "one vote per customer", so I thought that any extra votes would have been ignored or disqualified?

You can't come back and vote again later but you can have more than one vote on your ballot.

JohnnyNemesis
06-22-2005, 02:37 PM
I see. In that case, is it cool if I make some extra votes now, and only now? I made one vote earlier, but I'd like to give one vote each to some other worthy candidates and be on my way.

It seems kinda weird. Last time I checked you and JohnnyNemesis were tied up, and now Tijs is in first. I don't think Tijs is the type to create multiple accounts though. Or maybe Jack the Tripper is about, hoping to knock you and JohnnyNemesis out of the spots for mod.

Tijs would be an awesome mod anyway. I hope there's no bullshit going on here and that the votes are clean though.

TheUnholyNightbringer
06-22-2005, 04:43 PM
I've always thought Tijs would be an awesome mod for General Offspring Discussion. Though I'm pretty sure whoever did it, did it to knock you and/or myself off the top spot.

06-22-2005, 04:49 PM

06-22-2005, 04:53 PM
This is kinda stupid becasue it's more of a popularity contest rather than who should really be the moderator.

Jack the Tripper
06-22-2005, 04:54 PM
holy shit. Tijs is getting a lot of votes all of a sudden.

JohnnyNemesis
06-22-2005, 04:55 PM
Bullshit, Jack. You say Noodles should be mod, and he's never even around. He's too busy for that. That's not favoritism on your part?

Plus, everyone knows you're friends with I don't know, and you say she should be mod, when 95% of her posts consist of "hehehehehehehehehe". How is that not a popularity issue?

Besides, what qualities do YOU feel a mod should have, Jack? Making tons of "least favorite", "most favorite", "favorite pop", "favorite comedy" threads concerning The Offspring? Making tributes to Weird Al daily?

Trippy
06-22-2005, 04:59 PM
it's a clear win for tijs. the guy gets like one vote every minute. i think i didnt saw that many people nominating him.

TheUnholyNightbringer
06-22-2005, 05:00 PM
Very true. But he'll almost certainly take General Offspring Discussion. General Chat's where I want in.

don't worry dude you're in second position, while *I* didnt even get nominated :( haha j/k I don't really care, I'd be a lousy mod anyway.

HornyPope
06-22-2005, 05:13 PM
I'm glad you used my list, administrator, but your mistake is to give everyone the vote. Wrong, wrong, wrong! You open the poll up to major cheats--people will just use their multiple accounts to vote and ask friends to vote for them and a bunch of other crap. We have maybe 5000 registered members. Onlya hundred, however, can consider themselves a casual board frequanters ergo having the right to say what affects them.

I say- take the nominees from the poll, and have THEM choose a moderator (excluding themselves). I understand some might be frustrated that they have no right to vote, but at least in this scenario you have a vote where every single voice counts because at least the nominees are not brain dead morons like certain of the casual voters.

06-22-2005, 06:36 PM

You're just saying that because you don't like me. Grow up and admit that the problem with our quarrels have been YOU, not me.

Wait, you were talking about "jonny nemises", not me. My bad.

How can every single voice count if we limit the number of people who can vote? While I might agree that those I might consider "brain dead morons" don't deserve the right to vote, we want to give everyone a chance.

Don't worry. Moderators will not be given the power to ban users or abuse their powers.

JohnnyNemesis

Don't worry. Moderators will not be given the power to ban users or abuse their powers.

This is what I was getting at in the other threads. Moderators enforce rules, not make 'em, and are subject to the same consequences as anyone else, I'd hope.

Why should anyone feel threatened?

Onlya hundred, however, can consider themselves a casual board frequanters ergo having the right to say what affects them.

I agree to some extent, mostly on the issue of the multiple accounts. As someone who's pretty much completely impartial (what with being left off the poll *continues sobbing*), Jack The Tripper alone has about 15 different accounts, primarily consisting of "fakes" of other members (i.e. something along the lines of "TripBoi" instead of "TripBoy" where he'll use the same avatar and sig as the person he's faking, etc), so I can't be bothered to remember and list all his screen names. Anyway, for something like this I'd recommend registering votes only by IP address, not by user name.

If that account issue were resolved, then I'd suggest a slightly different voting procedure. A lot of people here are in tight with a certain group of friends, but other groups may have issues with them. While their friends might genuinely think they'd do a good job, the other group might think they'd be unfair and should have a place to voice this. Perhaps a second poll should be made where everyone gets one vote (and only one vote, not one vote like this where you can vote for as many people as you want) for who they think absolutely should not be mod? Every vote someone gets in that thread will take 1 away from the votes they get in this thread, and whoever has the most votes in the end would win. Just an option.

This whole thing shouldn't be as big of an issue as a lot of people are making it.

Rag Doll
06-22-2005, 07:55 PM
Good list...minus the lack of Nieh =\. Pretty shocked to see my name up there, since nobody seems to know me anymore. So....yay. =)

For the most part, I agree about limiting who votes...especially because some people here have many different accounts. Ah well.

We would vote for different people, I guess.Not only one.

Shut up, Jack the Tripper.

Sorry, just had to get that out. To answer your question, on other boards I've been on, Moderators have been banned, but it was extreeeeeeemely rare because chosen Mods are typically those who would never do anything that would get them banned.

Meh, I'm gonna be all whiny too, and complain about the fact that the freaks with more than one account can vote, but I'm very well aware of the fact not much can be done about it.

Nieh had a good idea there, with voting who should definitely NOT be mod.

Pope's idea about the nominees voting eachother is good, but blah, I'm all for the idea that everyone gets to vote, but not more than once. Not possible I suppose :/ Hopefully it turns out well this way too *sigh* But it's still not right :/

How can every single voice count if we limit the number of people who can vote? While I might agree that those I might consider "brain dead morons" don't deserve the right to vote, we want to give everyone a chance.

I meant "in this scenario, everyone who cast a vote has his voice count", as opposed to your current poll which is open to anyone without the slightest idea of who are the nominees. For all you know, they (the people who visited the board for maybe three times) might vote because they find the screen name of the nominee funny; and then to add insult to injury they take another account and cast another vote. Fair, huh? Mind you, registration to the boards is still open so what's stopping anyone from creating any number of accounts they please? Fast forward 200 bogus memeberships created and
we have ourselves a worthless poll.

Look- there are maybe 100 people on this board who post at least once a week. 150 tops. If you broaden the nominees list to say 40 names, we are including almost half of the regular members. I'm sorry for the 60 who are left out, but it's more fair to allow 40 votes at the expense of 60 who don't get to vote, than allow up to 5000 votes of whom only 100 (that's 2%) can honestly say they care enough for this board to be able to choose a moderator. Under my proposition, we risk offending several dozen of people who are already pissed at you for not including them in the initial 22-member poll, but the upside is we have a poll that NO ONE can dispute the results. Under your proposition, the poll is open to any sorts of frauds and cheats without any measure to check for authnicity, and people are still upset over not recieving the nomination.

The very LEAST you can do is make the vote public and so we can see if any bogus memebers cast a vote (and I guarantee you, they have).

I think the idea of an internet representative-democracy is very sweet, but unless you have any ways at your disposal to secure everyone his voice, you'll fall out flat despite the efforts. If you can't enforce it, don't bother. You know what Louis XIV had engraved on his fire cannons? Ultima Ratio Regum--or in plain English: "(this is the) final argument of Kings".

If people feel they are deserving to be on the list, they will ask the Administrator in due course. If you don't consider yourself a said person, don't say anything. If you do, run your mini-campaign, but for yourself only. Other people are able to speak for themselves. Did you also consider that maybe people you consider worthy don't actually want to be moderators, and therefore didnt nominate themselves?

Duskygrin, I'm not sure if this helps, but that was my explanation of why Jenny didn't get a nomination. I mean, it's pretty obvious. No way are people who appear to be racist going to even get voted in. You'd have to be crazy to think that Noodles is gay or Sin Studly would even stand a chance.

And yes, it's clear that you're upset that one of your friends didn't get a nod, I just read between the lines even though names weren't mentioned.

Personally, I think it'd be better if General Discussion and General Offspring Chat had three or four mods, seeing as those receive the vast majority of traffic. Politics, Other Bands and perhaps Tours could have a couple, but Offspring.com Discussion and Your Band really only need one.

I think General Offspring Discussion definitely needs more than two, but I don't think General Chat does. I don't think it gets SO much influx that it needs three. Though word on the Other Bands and Offspring.com Talk - I can't see the need for two there.

i agree that the higher traffic sections might be able to benefit from 3ish mods, but leaving the weaker ones with just one mod could lead to... well, poor judgement? sure it wouldn't last, but wasn't the point of two mods per section to be that there would be two different sets of eyes looking at issues? if not, sure, one for tour, off.com and your band, two for politics and other bands, three/four for general offspring and general chat would be around right.

I never estimate my importance based on a head count in a popularity contest. What's it to me whom punkangel and lodat and ruroken and jack the tripper and wishomie and their respective multiple accounts and friends voted for? They want to vote for their friends and whoever is nice to them in return. That's fine. Can't blame them. But i'm not one of such people. And I never claimed I was. It's nowhere an indicative of my importance or value, however.

Yeah, Endy the idea of two mods per form is definatly to avoid any forum of "descrimination" at the hands of one single moderator. With two mods, there's always someone else to offset the bias. That's pretty silly anyways because the kind of people we have nominated are not likely to be unfair to someone just to spite him, and besides it's not like the mods have any extraordinary power to abuse.

"Oh yeah, if you piss me off... i'm gonna... i'm gonna... EDIT YOUR POST, yeah that's what i'm gonna do!"

This is like, the ultimate test of popularity... kinda interesting to see...

I voted for one person and then realized I could vote for more right after I clicked vote... dammit... better get on my imposter accounts to rectify that...

Anyway, the voting seems to be going well despite the possible multiple accounts votes that was brought up. I agree that different forums may need a different number of mods though. Also, how will it be decided on who goes where?

First place gets first pick, and so on, until each forum has two moderators.

most of the people on the list have been regular posters on the official offspring board for between three and five years, most closer to the five end of things.

The fact that someone watches gay porn should have no impact on their opinion about moderators, nor should it affect whether we care or not.

Also kitten is a fucking spammer, so you have actually allowed a spammer to be elected moderator. Fucking wankers.

06-27-2005, 02:14 AM
1. You call everyone dickheads and wankers.
2. You just posted the same message twice.
3. You type in caps.
4. Apperently there aren't any(/enough) people who want you to become a moderator.
5. You haven't been a member for over 3 months when the mod-thing started.
6. Your screen name is 'fuckme!'.


I wouldn't take it seriously, Tijs.
I won't, but I'm still curious.
