We Really Need Moderators on these forums that will ban people and close posts ok so some posts are in the wrong place so what. Some arent even about the offspring and in the wrong place and some are funny (even again if they are in the wrong place).

Its these I dont mind I don t even mind rude. But Those that simply just Post nothing but Crap thats Overly Offensive/Rude, Plain stupid and just down right disgusting we don't need. I'm not asking for strict moderation otherwise people will leave and not come back but the way its going people will leave no matter what. Me For one.

I know thats what these people want but i couldnt care less cause i just want to talk about anything sensible with fellow Fans and if they are going to ruin that then i will leave and they can waste there time with other losers that have nothing better to do.

Not sure this is going to do much but I think its worth a try.

When i signed up there were rules and i see those being broken every day.

Well Nag over. ANy one else feel the same.

Yes I totally agree; we could vote for mods to keep the place clean? With the admin having more power than mods so that mods don't act like idiots.

I agree for some moderators around here, but I don't think we are ever going to get some. It's allways been like that.

The old old message board had mods, and that worked ok. I think just to be able to keep on top of the members who sign up to post really stupid shit. I mean, look at my autographed guitar. You just have to hover over the topic to see the link it goes too.

Agreed, it would be nice to see some 'proper' moderators round here, but I can't see that happening.

I really think this problem is getting really out of control now, people just post stuff that has no meaning or add's to a thread in anyway. Just some of the stuff I came across this morning, these are not things you don't wanna see while your eating your breakfast.

Some of that stuff was pretty sick :mad: But anyways mods would be great just like the old BBS... :D Back then we didn't have to worry spammers posting sick ass pics all over the place.

When the mod gets online, he's gonna have field day removing all these threads and banning people.

mod's don't have banning powers, just maybe warning, only admins, and i highly doubt it that anyone will be promoted admin...

no prob.

i saw admin1 in here like 5mins ago...

he didn't do shit...

there is this dude, who spammed like http://www.offspring.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=2
and the admin didn't bann him, he viewed 1 thred and logged out.. sheeshh...

this board was made by liberationmedia - a webdesign company, and the amins is one of the webamsters. This company makes a LOT of websites and forums, they can't possibly moderate all...
This is how it works, i have a webdesign company 2 and for ex if i'd make like 5-10 forums, i'd be admin for all and well don't visit them very often only if someone calls/sends email with a complaint that i need to bann someone...

*poof*

Liberation Media designed the site but the band didn't hire us to moderate the forums.

I nominate myself and as you'll see in General Chat I have a constituency. Someone should keep the place free of spam and flooding.

The problems haven't gone unnoticed. That's all I can really say right now.

you should set some people as moderators, i know a few people who would make good mods, and im on here pretty much everyday, even tho i dont post a whole lot, i just read over topics.. just a suggestion :rolleyes:

General Chat is once again unusable, someone has posted a dozen nonsense threads. This is getting ridiculous, if you can't/don't want to mod the boards yourself then appoint someone to do it.

If the board ever does get mods, they should be people who were never members and who never posted here. That's the only way it would be fair.

it'd be great to get some mods around here... we need several to really make a difference...

Picking new members as mods would give you a 90% chance they're idiots, since 90% of the board membership consists of idiots. c0d3r and NiG would both be terrible choices.

There should be a set of rules which the moderators need to follow...

Of course; they can't be mods without a set of guidelines.


ok, 1 last thing, if there are going to be any mods then, they should have warning powers.

They wouldnt be real mods without warning powers, wouldn't you agree?


meh, so i'll apply...

Honestly, that'd make no sense. Too much favoritism with you and voodoomagik and Koobie hating anyone who disagrees with you. You know it's true.

And don't bother accusing me of the same, because I get into arguments with my BBS buddies all the time. Noodles is Gay, for example, is a good friend and I've been fair and arguing with her all week if I happen to disagree with her, and supporting her when I do agree with her.

so if i were you, i'd stop hoping.

just a suggestion.
Stop being so immature. I'm not "hoping" for anything. I'm just making a point, no need to dodge it.

Truth be told, if I were offered a mod position, I'd probably turn it down.

JohnnyNemesis

Most of the people who want to be Moderators actually used to Mod this board in the past, so it's not entirely out of reason that they would be Mods again. It probably won't happen, but it's not impossible.
