If you look in the "forum leaders" section, there is definitely a huge decrease in the number of mods. Interesting.

Rag Doll

Tijs

And then the rest just like quit or aren't in power anymore. This intrigues me more than you could imagine. I'm looking forward to news about this shit.

I didn't realize how many moderators left. I guess the logical thing to do would be to assume that someone told them to leave their positions. But I guess I'll find out what happened at some point in the future.

perhaps we will, perhaps we won't. most of the mods were largely inactive anyway and those six having super powers will make things simpler to moderate and what not.

This.

In the beginning, the band created the forum. Yea, there were multitudes of moderators but after years it seemed that changes would be necessasry to make things more awesome. And lo, Dexter opened the heavens and said 'Hey, which one of you guys drank the last beer? You're supposed to go on the next beer run. Those are the rules.'

see, what happened was, they were all conspiring together to overthrow sarah and release private mod info to the general public. So Dexter had to put his foot down. He said, "No moar funny buiznis!" and thus a new system was born.

IamSam
02-25-2009, 09:33 PM
I'd like to remind the moderators that as a trusted BBS personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to...toil in their underground sex caves.

I always thought that ilovellamas was a mod.

If there was a vote for electing new mods for certain things, I'd maybe nominate Lost, Vera, and Randman21 for the "your band" thing because they seem to have done a lot of work there and I don't know. But then again, maybe they wouldn't even WANT to be mods...:confused:

I also noticed less mods and I'm happy about those who are still around! Things feel much more peaceful these last months, or this last year.

Dear Offspring.com Forum Moderators,

Thank you so much for your service over the years. The band and management have decided to make a change to the moderating system and therefore are no longer in need of your service as a moderator. We value your participation and hope you continue to be a part of the community. You are exceptional individuals and we wish you the best... Your IDs have been returned to regular user status.

Thanks again,

Offspring.com

That was the first thing I heard about me no longer being a mod, and then I wasn't a mod any longer.

Not that I can blame 'em; I haven't been particularly active lately (and I wouldn't have given a whole lot of time to the BBS had I been promoted), but prior notice would've bee nice.

wheelchairman
02-26-2009, 07:35 AM
Yes I have to agree on the prior notice aspect. It was rather out of the blue and all of the sudden.

Not a real issue, but it was rather poorly handled. I'm hoping actual employees get better human relations. :p

Awright, a couple things I would like to know.


Why did most of the mods lose their position? Per, just to name one, posted a whole lot so it was not because of lack of time on the boards.
Are all of you capable of banning people? :eek:

So, if all the mods are super mods, doesn't that mean that none of them are? I'm not doubting your power or anything, but since there's no more distinction, it would make more sense to just be called mods again.

Yes I realize I'm arguing semantics over a really irrelevant point, but I don't really have much else to say.

everyone's reactions, including ours, speak for themselves. but whether you endlessly discuss it in advance, or open a conversation afterwards, as long as you manage to fully justify taken decisions, it's fine. the treatment wasn't specifically exhibiting awesome manners, but looking at what's been decided, which in the end is most important anyway, all is well.

02-26-2009, 02:01 PM
How come I don't see any moderator in "Your Band" at all? Dexter was so touched by rafrag covers so he decided to let us taste a little anarkiii? :P
But I'm almost sure that Dexter's appearance is related with mods "fireing", maybe he was asked by forum administration to check the boards before the cleanup, I don't think it was just a coincidence.
