Have you got people already lined up to be moderators or will you choose certain members after a week or so? How many moderators are we likely to have?

Just an opinion.... I think you need a LOT of Admins or Moderators... because... this site will be visited 24/7 .... and they need to moderate those stupid geeks who come to talk shit about People visiting the forums and stuff like that

Hysteria
10-21-2004, 07:27 AM
I'd agree, but no more than 5 mods I don't think. The last official bbs had no moderators and one administrator, and people posted loads of shit on there that not many people wanted to see. The bbs before that had one moderator I think, but I don't think one moderator is enough on a board which is going to get visited as much as this.

I'd do it. I run the TSOL website, so I have to online a fair bit anyway.

Ferna182
10-21-2004, 07:38 AM
i would like... but it's a lot of responsabiliy... dunno if i can enter here every ay and read every new posts in search of people talking shit...... it's a tough work

Yes I think it`s a hell of a work to keep this place clean of dirty posts

Ferna182

people here just want to be moderators just becasue they can now say "DUDE!!! I MODERATE OFFSPRING.COM FORUM!! DUDE I RULE!!" just because of that... but.... i would say "Im sorry" for that... because... "now u got a very tough work ahead hahahaha" i would like to help just sending PM to mods everytime i see shit posted here.... and... not posting shits ....

Hysteria
10-21-2004, 08:18 AM
If we've got 4 or 5 it should'nt be too much work, especially as posters are gonna be aware of them, so they are less likely to post stuff which mods would modify or delete.

samr
10-21-2004, 08:19 AM
I think I'd be a good mod...

Because the people respect me, they do.

Oh right yeah! I used to be on the official bbs all the time, but when it went, I signed up to TheOffspring.com Forums. I never really got on with it that much to be honest, but hey, I made a stupid impact by asking myself to be deleted and then signing up again as 'S2A'. :D

I thought you'd been banned the way your name came up in topics you'd posted to.

Vera
10-21-2004, 10:05 AM
I half-agree with Jesus.

I know many people would go powercrazy and start banning posters who'd critisize something they did or say something that was against their own opinion. A good mod would only delete trolling posts and truly offensive posts like if someone posted a post where they wrote about a bandmember's personal life in a negative way. But with some people, it would just go overboard, like "you said ixnay sucks ixnay does not suck!!! fuck you!!! i will ban you now!!! CAUSE I AM MOD!!!". That'd get utterly stupid and who wants to visit a board where you can't speak your mind because the mod might delete it if they disagree with you?

That's why it's not about what timezone you're on or how much time you could spend modding the BBS.

Also, I know repeating popular topics like "What song you listening to at the moment?" or "Top 5 of your favourite films" can be annoying, but moderating topics or moderating posting of new topics is so stupid. I know a board where you have to talk to the mod before posting a topic, just to make sure there isn't a topic about the same subject already and that's just stupid and boring. A little anarchy is healthy.

Trolls need to be get rid of, no one likes them, but god-modding sucks.

I pretty much agree with you.

And a mod would probably have to be a completely independant individual who knows nothing about the offspring or about the people who post here, and who just deletes the truly offensive posts, and does not get insulted/annoyed by pissed off BBS members taking thir shit out on him/her.

Yeah, you find that mod ;)

But come on, if we had had proper mods before, there would be no "Kill the president topic gets Offspring BBS closed by the feds" thing, or the "hackers" taking over the board... Or any of the fun stuff!

This board is meant to be retarded, accept it, or even better, just love it!

Vera
10-23-2004, 06:51 AM
"Kill the President - for real!"-topic was really something. Wasn't it before 9/11?

Dave
10-23-2004, 09:10 AM
I say go with the flow without mods.

Im a mod for a site with over 80,000 members (ooo get me), and that needs to be properly controlled.

Im just enjoying the anarchy here, but it isnt all too different here from there, as people seem to be cool.

So yeah, boo to moderators for here at least.

10-23-2004, 10:21 AM

I think I could be a good mod. I'll let alot of the chaos stay because thats what the offspring board is all about but I'll just delete those stupid treads like the ones crap man made.

Subsidal

Basically moderating a vBulletin forum is not hard. Only thing you need is a little previous experience (testing somewhere else or just moderating another vBulletin forum) and the knowledge of english language. :)

Julie
10-25-2004, 05:58 PM
I'm a moderator on an other forum along with 4 other people and 1 admin, we run the place pretty well and I get lotsa respect on there and I do a good job. We also use the same forum, meaning the vBulletin, so I know how it works pretty well.. Anyways, that's me, your loyal offspring fan and if you need a mod, I'm your girl. Later ;)

I seriously think there should be one because the amount of idiots is piling up. All I see is spam and pointless topics. This is supposed to be a discussion board and not a pile of random rubbish. It's always been like this and it always will because let's face it, we all know what people come on here. I'd clean this place of the shit if only I could. I'm seriously annoyed by some posters and topics. The only place where there are actually discussions running is "Politics".

I agree we'd need someone independent but then again if the person knows nothing of all our fun history. Because there's been many things and I really think it would be good if the person understood the (twisted) philosophy of this board.

For now on, I'll just keep up with the seemingly useless reporting.

This board needs mods, and now! I'm tired of seeing threads go off-topic and regress to bickering or conversations between just two people. (That's what PMs and IMs are for). I'm also sick of seeing the same threads over and over again, not to mention threads in the wrong forums (Wanna talk about Nirvana? Put it in the "Other Bands" forum and not the "General Offspring" forum).

This board needs order!

That must be the second greatest thing about The Offspring's internet stuff!
The absolutely BEST thing is that i met my girlfriend through it, we've been going out for years now... unfortunatelly we're loosing trust in The Offspring as a band since their albums bores us and their shows we go to, are as interesting as listening to the newest album.

But the second best thing about The Offspring's internet place is that there is some kind of "Anarchy" in the way that there are NO Moderators or Adminstrators.
I believe that no human can be filling a position of being "right" in making decisions over others, "leading others" and having "more rights" than others.
Im glad to hear that people agree with me that this board is doing very well without Mods and Admins, mostly because people actually are encouraged to speak their minds here with no concern of being "kicked" or "banned".
yes, i can have a pessemistic attitude sometimes, but this board is really a good board!

what exactly can the admin. and mod. do? can they delete and move posts? that would be really cool if for nothing else to condense the board a bit. it would be great to have only one post about how hot dexter is instead of like 50. this is probly just my lazy point of view, but sometimes when there is multiple threads about a topic u r interested in, it gets hard to keep track of all of them. dont get me wrong im not complaining, i think it would be easier, but like i said before, ive been really lazy lately :D so maybe its just me.

Subsidal
01-22-2005, 07:00 AM
Admins and mods can delete and move posts, and threads to keep it clean. That'd really help. Just for example, the General Chat is flooded by that TripBoy dude and thousands of topics from him and about him, an Admin or a mod could delete that shit what would help a lot!

We are in dire need of moderators, especially in the General Offspring forum! We also need stickied threads containing FAQs and some general guidelines to follow.

I also have interest in being a mod and will do my best to keep order in the forums. I also think that as soon as a thread becomes a conversation between two posters it should be closed and an explanation given (if you want to chat, IM each other).

I think that is a bad idea. If you don't like the threads or replies, don't read them. If threads start being closed for stupid reasons like that, you ruin the whole purpose of this message board and the meaning of punk. I say, just learn to deal with it, and if you can't deal with it, get the hell out of the forums.

I'd say the only topics that should be closed are the double topics. Except when there's quite a long time between the two topics. The other ones could stay.
The problem with moderators is that most of them have a waaaay too personal view on which topics should be closed. I liked the way z_911 moderated the red and white boards, you hardly noticed him until it was really needed. Which was only a few times.

Awesome man, that sounds wicked!

Yeah, I'm good, I quit college and now I've got a job, so earning money!
STA is kinda S2A now, so you refer to us as S2A now!
Not yet no, but our new CD should be out soon, and our manager is paying for around 1,000, maybe 10,000 copies of our CD done.
Also, we've got a new website nearly finished, our website is soon going to be www.s2aonline.com and we're playing gigs more recently.
Come and post on the S2A board again man, its different now, everyone's accounts were reset and things stay on topic!
Would be awesome to see you posting on there again.
