Don't try to be admins, ever!

Administrating a forum with thousands of members is easy. The only problem I've ever found is coping with other power-hungry admins.

If you want to be a mod, you have to send money to this paypal account:

You'd better hope nobody's dumb enough to fall for that, or else it's wire fraud.

I regret that no.

that's cute, you're cute. *grins*

I wonder on what grounds people would like to be an admin, or mod. just for the power, because status is sexy, or because they think the place isn't runned well.

the Offspring message board is a friendly, well organised, fun place with plenty of freedom. anyone can add to that by contributing in his own way to topics, discussions & conversations, & respecting each other & forum rules. it's not very difficult. every member has a certain influence defined by his attitude, behavior & contributions on the forums. maybe to you it seems like the power is entirely in the hands of the admin & mods, like they're the only ones who can make a difference, but they're in the vast minority, only assigned to step in when things go badly.

so if you, in the position of a boardmember, want to contribute to keeping this board a fun, enjoyable place - which is basically also what the admin & moderators try to do - you have every opportunity to do so & it's entirely in your own hands. basically what I'm trying to say, is that in the position of a boardmember you're very important to this board & you can make a great difference, even if you can't call yourself admin or mod.

Like JoY said, you have alot power as a board member. If everyone respects the rules and each other a board can be very nice. I was a admin on a smaller forum once, and the only thing you do is just act like a normal user, only when theres something that violates the rules you remove things or ban a user. If you do more then that (ban people you dont like, make up new rules etc. etc.) people will leave your forum.

Bipolar Bear
07-12-2008, 10:41 PM
I have a question for the moderators though, how did you guys become mods?

Thomas
07-12-2008, 11:30 PM
A while ago, everyone on the boards was allowed to nominate anybody the wanted to be mods. The people with the most nominations were included in the election for mods and voting ensued. The current mods are the ones who got the most votes. I believe there were some other mods who were runners up but got put in later due to a need for more mods?

Am I missing anything?

Exactly. However, when you're administrating a larger forum along with other third parties, you'll find that more of your time goes into keeping the other admins in check than moderating the users. What with absolute power corrupting and all.

In the spirit of american politics, I firmly believe that moderators need a system of checks and balances, because they have made a hobby out of abusing their power, and belittling and stifling any normal member's opinions. So, I favor new mods.

The mods and myself are watched, closely and much of the time. Just because our check isn't readily apparent doesn't mean it's not there. It's easy to make a lot of general proclamations like this and not make any specific and/or valid arguments (see also in this forum "Mota Boy should be banned"), so I would recommend that you open a dialogue not on the open forum with me or Mod Admin containing specifics.

Wait... first you suggest that you think the board needs a system of checks and balances. Then you ditch that and say we need new mods. Checks and balances = new mods? Since when?

I am in complete agreement. How the heck do checks and balances = new mods? Checks and balances = improving the way current mods do their work now.

For the record, though, I want to say that I would be in full support of voting in moderators because that's how we got this current team in the first place. But to oust us and start all over is utterly pointless because this place really isn't running so poorly, and management agrees to a certain point. If we do vote new mods in, it should be due to current moderators stepping down, no longer being active, or management deciding to oust certain moderators for whatever reason.

Also, can we please retire the "moderators abuse 'normal' members" argument? That piece of complete bullshit is right up there with "MEXICANZ BE STEALIN MAH JOBZ + WIMMIN". It's not "mods" that belittle opinions, it's a random assortment of assholes that includes some normal members, some moderators, etc. All scattered.

Little_Miss_1565
07-15-2008, 03:16 PM
But I guess that's the thing too...sarcasm is always going to be a part of this forum, and what some consider sarcasm others consider abuse. Actual abuse is pretty much not okay coming from anyone, and it would be really great to get some more people on board to exert some peer pressure to elevate the level of discourse on the forums.

JohnnyNemesis
07-15-2008, 03:21 PM
Of course. But what I'm saying is that if we elevate the discourse, we ALL need to elevate it (even if moderators lead the charge)...and we should also see the "abuse" for what it is: something that comes from lots of different places and not just moderators.

The world will soon come to an end. BBS we know now will forever be gone. Because the Dark Lord Davo (previously known as Lord Suron) is rising again, even though Tolkien thought he finished him for good in the last book. When the One Ring was thought to be destroyed, he dived into hot lava and somehow obtained the melting ring from it, and so the One Keyboard had been forged somewhere in the volcanoes of Slovakia. One keyboard to rule them all, one keyboard to find them, one keyboard to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them...

In short: we are so fucked...
