We are looking for moderators for the forums. As those of you who've been on the boards recently know, this is a necessary step.

Each section will have two moderators elected by the board at large.

What Will A Moderator Do?
A moderator will be able to remove postings and threads and suggest users to be banned to the administrators. Moderators will be instructed that only posts, threads and users which include the following can be removed or banned.

1) Private Information - The band's or anyone else's
2) Pornography/Graphic Images - We have visitors of all ages and we'd like to keep it that way

Moderators will not determine what are acceptable discussion subjects, this is an open forum. But they can refer threads to the administrators for review.

A moderator should try to check their section at least twice a day, or as needed when contacted by an administrator.

Why Are You Adding Moderators?
Most everyone here has no problem being civil but those that don’t ruin it for the rest of us.

How Will This Work?
If you are interested being a moderator, please nominate yourself in this thread. If you think of someone else who would be a good moderator, you can nominate them as well. Once we have enough nominees, we will setup a vote. You must already be member for at least three months to become a moderator!

Thanks to all our loyal board members.

I would like to be a moderator, because there are some people I would like to have banned (you know who you are), but I don't think I'll get picked. After all, I've only been here for little more than a month, and I'm probably still considered a newbie on some standard.

05-29-2005, 08:35 PM
As the highest poster, I feel it's my duty to put myself forward as a nominee. Although I do realise that in that post I did kind of disappear up my own ass.

u also have 2 b a member 4 3 months at least
it is like a popularity contest isn't it?

admin, baby, you know as well as i do that self-nomination is lame.

but seeing as i somehow made the other list and was the third highest (after dave and ricky) without cheering myself on, i'll throw my hat in the ring. been on the 'official' offspring board for 5ish years (i've lost count, but it was very shortly after they actually put up the first board) and other than a few random third-worlders, i'm not particularly hated.

oh, and you should add spamming to the list of valid ban/delete reasons.

Sin Studly
05-29-2005, 08:40 PM
First, everyone who just nominated themself (with the exception of TUNB and Endy) would make terrible mods.

I nominate ;

Not Ozymandius
Endymion
The Unholy NightBringer
The_Goddess
Betty
Little_Miss_1565
Johnny Nemesis
Vera
ninth

All would make terrific moderators. Naturally I won't nominate myself, cause I'd abuse the living bejesus out of my powers.

I'm not saying I should be a moderator, but where does it say you have to be here for 3 months?

...Who the hell are you, and why are you voting for me?
I can't be a moderator, I've only been here a few weeks.

Although I would make a good mod, :cool:
there are people here that would do a helluva better job than me.

administrator_old
05-29-2005, 09:03 PM
We hope that the votes would be based on how the members have contributed in the past and it would be awfully hard to judge a member that has only a few posts.

Anyway, the 3-month sign up limit stands.

Also, this will be a fluid process... Mods will inevitably come and go and empty slots will be filled, etc...

Unholynightrbringer, Endymion, JohnyNemesis, and Horny Pope are great canditates.

HornyPope
05-29-2005, 09:13 PM
Dear Admin, you may already know it or you may not, but there is a community of members that existed on the board for 3-5 years already. We grew to love and care for this place and naturally would be the obvious choices to moderate the forum. Chose any one of those. The members in question are:

Joy
Goddess
Ragdoll
HornyPope
Izie
Endymion
Skratch
Sin Studly
Little Miss 1565
Nina
Nieh
Wheelchairman
Sunny
Vera
Linda
Betty
Wliethof
Vicky
Ninth
Jesus
RXP*
Mota Boy*
TheUnhollyNightBringer*
Tizz*
Not Ozymandias*
DirtyMagical*
Arak0r*
Tijs*

Those memebers marked with an asterics are slightly newer but they still have at least two years at the boards and that's good enough. Mind you I don't like every single one of the nominees, but at least this is our community for the better and the worse. Please don't make a mistake of choosing someone outside. I'm temped to include more newer members who i'm sure would make great mods too (think JohnnyNemesis) but then i'd be basing the selection on my own preferance and I rather exclude any form of personal bias. Instead, I want some of the veterans to get the position. You newer folks just have to understand and deal with it.

Sin Studly
05-29-2005, 09:13 PM
Word to your list.I'll add Wheelchairman and Mota boy. But HP isn't here frequently enough.

Agreed, but I don't think Mota boy is here frequently enough either, sadly.

Ok, I just wanted to know.

So, let's say it's July 9th (exactly 3 months after I joined), and someone leaves moderatorship. I could become a moderator later on?

I know this is a bit off topic, but I noticed the thread had "sticky" next to it. What's a sticky thread? One that sticks to the top?

I've been here almost daily since October (I've gone through some username changes) and I reckon the people who'd make the best moderators are TUNB and JohnnyNemesis. TUNB just a little bit more however...

"punkconspiracy," then I got sick of seeing it as lower case, though it wouldn't let me upgrade to "PunkConspiracy," so I became "Punk_Conspiracy"

Anyone with a band name, the word punk, and anything offspring related in their screename should not be a moderator. The rest could be possibly nominee if they want.

Sorry, but I can see exactly where this is going. The people most everyone will pick for moderators are the biggest offenders of not being civil to others.
That can only be seen by reading the threads in General Chat. If they are picked, you are going to lose alot of good members. Surely you have seen that the past few weeks? As much as I would like to be a moderator and get some of them IP banned, I don't have the time to take on such a task.
Man, this board just keeps getting worse, never better. :(

05-29-2005, 10:07 PM
I am also interested in the position of Moderator. I would be interested in moderating the General Offspring page. There's a lot of off-topic threads and other needless crap going on.

Betty
05-29-2005, 10:14 PM
I would like to second Hornypope's comments and say that I seriously hope that the veterans (3-5 years) are given the moderator positions, at least in the general chat and politics forums.

For these forums (don't care about the others) I nominate:
-Hornypope
-Mota Boy
-Endymion
-Little Miss 1565
-Joy
-Goddess
-Vera

Other senior members would be okay too...

For an Offspring-related forum I nominate Mike_911 if he is interested in spending the time required.

Rag Doll
05-29-2005, 10:26 PM
Have to agree with some of the others (HP, Betty) about long time members being mods. 1565, z_911, and I were mods on the old board as well. We (the people HP listed) have been here way longer than most people and know "whats what" so to speak. *shrug* But whatever.

People that break the board rules will not become moderators.

I like the idea of long time veterans getting the posts and I hope that the community takes it in that direction.

Also, moderators are not gods. Just like any other member, if they start to cause trouble, they are history.

When do you want moderators to start? Are you and the admin team also going over the nominees?

Betty
05-29-2005, 11:37 PM
I'd like to hope so too, but the community is huge and the veterans are small... so it might not work out that way.

It might really depend how the voting works... how many people everyone can vote for and in which forums, etc, etc. And possibly if admins have veto over ridiculous choices, etc.

Rag Doll
05-29-2005, 11:44 PM
I think the only way it would work is if the only people up for the spots were veterans.

I was reading another topic where 1565 posted about the AFI board...and what they do is indeed good. No one knows who the mods are (except the admins & mods) and they all use *one* account to do the "mod work"....I think that's pretty good. Either way, I definitely think the admins should have a lot of input in it...not just go by popular vote.

didn't bother to read all the posts, just the 1st one.

I am fairly new here, but i still don't understand y people think that mods should be members of this board for a long time, it doesn't influence your work in any way, you could be a member since 1day or 5years, the job could be done in the same way if you have experience. It doesn't take you more than 1week to find out what kind of people are here. Just takes a few posts, 50 maybe 100.

I was a moderator on 2 forums, but unfortunately they had some hosting problems and got shut down.
Now i am a moderator on 1 webdesign form, www.webmastertalk.in and own 1 forum, well actually 2 but the other one is really dead.
the one i have some activity on is http://dhotst.info/groundzero.

Well if anyone cares i also have a webdesign company, and this is the website. www.intuitive-ds.com, feel free to check it for other projects of mine..

Anyways, i think i'd do good as a mod, i don't think i'd be unfair to anyone, some people might think so but no...

Ok, now this would be my aplication, if u feel like selecting me that's fine, i'd like to help out on the forum

Regards,
Lucian B.

PS: as i read through the therad, i see that people nomite themselves on their popularity and on the number of posts, which clearly shows that they have absolutely no idea how mods are picked, a clear example of lack of experience...

I like the idea of long time veterans getting the posts and I hope that the community takes it in that direction.

Good then. If I may suggest, take the 5-6 more popular veterans off my list, provided they are themselves willing to become moderators and have the time for it, and among them pick anyone at your own discretion. Whether it's gonna be Little Miss 1565 or Holynightbringer or Endymion or whatever, each candidate is a fine choice. Maybe it's not someone who I'd truely like to see selected, but i'm sure they'll do a fine job. The way I look it- moderating isn't really about ability. We all talk about who'd make the "best" moderator but let's not kid ourselves. Anyone with two and a half brain cells and the slightest sense of objectivity can do a good job. And if he doesn't his position can be removed in a matter of few clicks. So this question really comes down to who deserves it, and that's why I insist that you pick the veterans. We've been on the board for a while and we've done our share to support the online Offspring community, so if you had to choose between dozens of perfectly capable moderators on the forum, pick those who truely are commited to the board. It's only fair.

Sin Studly
05-30-2005, 03:54 AM
The only problem I see with voting on moderators is that certain people, not naming names, are in the habit of creating two dozen profiles to spam and be ridiculous from. Any chance you could set it up so that you only get one vote per IP range?

Well, thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I would make a great mod. And posting within stupid threads to tell the thread makers how stupid they are is often an unnecessary move. There are many users I would like to rid this board of though...

Anyway, the hornypope is right. It has to be a vet. Along the lines of

The Goddess
Johnny Nemesis
The unholy nightbringer

And so on. (Those are examples, there are quite a few good potential mods.)

I would like to be a moderator of the Offspring.com forums because I was around on the previous BBS and it was poorly maintained in terms of an actual moderator(s), there was one I think.

I would take great pleasure in maintaing these boards to a great extent. Iam here regulary, perhaps not posting, but im here - I like a decent forum for viewing and I like a nice community and no slagging off with endless threads.

Fuck the voting. Let us nail down the selection to the most obvious willing candidates and then just choose someone at random. Because there are only so many 'qualifications' you can demand from a moderator. Hell, I still think i'm the best pick for the position, but i'll be embarassed to argue that i'm better at moderating content and deleting posts than Goddess or Mota Boy, for example.

Trippy
05-30-2005, 07:15 AM
huge mistake. i always thought the offspring board is special for its non-moderators. spammers usually just go away, just like they did this time. if couple of threads are in the wrong place, not that big deal.

whoever the moderators are they think they're so powerful and they must moderate just because they are ones...i'd let moderators come out of Liberation Media, but not from this board.

also offspring discussion should have a moderator that actually likes the band. i don't see any of those so-called veterans do so.

and choosing the mods by voting would be ridiculous. another popularity contest and the mod would come from a real inner cicrle. thats why id like to see the mods coming out of impartial position ie liberation media.

I'd like to be a moderator. I've been offended and annoyed by a lot of material posted here and I'd really like to help do something about it.

I've been a member since last year and I watch the board all the time but I don't post very much, so I guess if mods are just getting picked on popularity then I don't stand a chance. But still, if you're looking for a fair, reliable moderator, I've got the time and I'd like to do it.

Vera
05-30-2005, 08:26 AM
Good call - the spammers ruin it for everyone. And I'm sick and tired of the constant posting of gross pictures. It's got to stop.

Nominees:

JohnnyNemesis (on a lot, good feller)
The_GoDdEsS (ditto)
TheUnholyNightBringer (pretty much same reasons)
Endymion (he doesn't do caps but don't hold it against him, heh)
HornyPope (I may not like him but he'd make a good mod)
Little_Miss_1565 (this girl used to be a mod on the old board and those were good, good times)

Linda, the mods can't ban. All they can do is request people to be banned. Of course they won't be banned right away, because the Administrator's will see if this person deserves the punishment, or the mod just has a grudge against them.

05-30-2005, 09:01 AM

i know that me, tijs, jesus and Zee would be good mods, ask them for my "resume"
And we have all been around for 4-5 years, at least myself, not sure about the others. So im hoping youll go by some of this and not by how many "votes" you get.
Cause A mod aint here too make friends, hes/shes here to make a structure in this board. so its important that he or she doesnt favorise, it has happend before so please dont do it again

and id also like too nominate sneedo hes an oldtimer...and he does great covers :D

I would be a good moderator, if it weren't for the 3 month rule. I don't spam, or post anything offensive, and I have pretty good judgement. The only time I use offensive language is to LoDaT, who really annoys me a lot.

05-30-2005, 10:15 AM

I wouldn't mind being one myself, but I get the feeling I haven't quite been here long enough, and am not particually popular on the forums..... ;~;

Also, I think Camilamazed would be up to this task.

I kind of don’t consider self-nominations appropriate, especially when they’re coming from random members who wouldn’t make good ones. Although on the other hand it’s like applying for a job. Still, I'd prefer to be on lists thanto mention myself. I also agree that it should be a person who’s been on this board for years and knows its ‘mentality’ without being too biased/taking sides.

And as far as I know most of these people can keep a cool head so my nominees would go to:

Little_Miss_1565
Mota Boy
Endymion
Horny Pope
JohnnyNemesis
Betty
Vera
wheelchairman
JoY
TheUnholyNightbringer

I would have nominated Sin Studly as well because even though he’s being harsh on the people he ends up teaching them a lesson anyway. On the other hand, out of the same reason he himself stated, he’d eventually abuse it.

I would like to nominate Tijs and Jesus, these guys are running www.theoffspring.info and I believe they are really honest as mods

Agreed !!!


It doesn't matter who is gonna be mod.What matters is that the mods always ask the other members opinion about how to manage the boards. Everyone would be part of it.I mean, Before thw mods having a decision, the other members should be asked about.Then everyone will participate.(Surely spammers opinions don't count).

Just a thought :D

Dear Admin, you may already know it or you may not, but there is a community of members that existed on the board for 3-5 years already. We grew to love and care for this place and naturally would be the obvious choices to moderate the forum. Chose any one of those. The members in question are:

Joy
Goddess
Ragdoll
HornyPope
Izie
Endymion
Skratch
Sin Studly
Little Miss 1565
Nina
Nieh
Wheelchairman
Sunny
Vera
Linda
Betty
RXP*
Mota Boy*
TheUnhollyNightBringer*
Tizz*
Ninth*
Not Ozymandias*
DirtyMagical*
Arak0r*


Those are good choices for the General Chat and Politics section, but not really for the other sections.

So for the other sections: Tijs (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=41) (co-webmaster for theoffspring.info), BuddyHolly (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=171), Zee (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=68), RobinoZombie (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=53) ... and myself (also a veteran from 2000) I suppose

I very much agree because most of us post in either of those forums. So Jesus and Tijs would make brilliant mods for the Offspring-related sections. :)

Pope speaks the truth. Old members would be the best ones. Personal preferance:

Joy
Goddess
Endymion
Skratch
Vera
JohnnyNemesis (even though he's not an old member)

are the ones who post regularly, but I'd still like to see HornyPope, Little Miss 1565, Mota Boy, Betty, wheelchairman and Tijs as mods too.

Zee
05-30-2005, 12:27 PM
I agree with Jesus, the names above are mostly for off-topic discussions. I don't really mind that, so I'll just give some nominees for the Offspring discussions...


The same Jesus named
Leo3375
Mike_911
TheOldMark

RobinoZombie
05-30-2005, 12:36 PM

Tijs
05-30-2005, 12:39 PM

I'd very much like to moderate the Offspring related forums. And most of the other nominees mentioned are quite good choises.

wheelchairman
05-30-2005, 12:40 PM
I've been nominated several times now, and am thus accepting my nomination and making myself a candidate for a mod-position.

If it makes any difference, I moderated the Votes And Polls forum of www.soviet-empire.com for almost a year. And so far, have been the most popular moderator in that boards history.

Anyways, I'd nominate many of the same names, because they know what is acceptable.

Hornypope,
Little Miss 1565,
The Goddess,
Izie,
Joy,
Betty,
TheUnholyNightBringer
RagDoll
Endymion
Jesus,
Tijs,
Vera,
Tizzalicious,
Mota Boy,

All of these people, would be excellent in moderating, and would provide objectivity and fairness. Furthermore, like myself, they have spent between 3-5 years here, and know the boards, ins-and-outs fairly well. All of them would do brilliant jobs.

05-30-2005, 05:20 PM
huge mistake. i always thought the offspring board is special for its non-moderators. spammers usually just go away, just like they did this time. if couple of threads are in the wrong place, not that big deal.

whoever the moderators are they think they're so powerful and they must moderate just because they are ones...i'd let moderators come out of Liberation Media, but not from this board.

also offspring discussion should have a moderator that actually likes the band. i don't see any of those so-called veterans do so.

and choosing the mods by voting would be ridiculous. another popularity contest and the mod would come from a real inner cicrle. thats why id like to see the mods coming out of impartial position ie liberation media.

I nominated myself and Camilamazed....but hey, for the first time in my life I see Trippy has a point.

The point of picking a mod from among the members - so-called fans of the band - is to bring them closer to the site's maintenance, thus making them feel there closer to the band. At least, that's what I feel :D a bit.

But your statement is simply perfect, Trippy. I agree 100%.

a moderator will be picked as the result of a popularity contest???

What else would you expect? It's not really a popularity contest, but you vote for who you think would be a fair and just person to be in power. Besides, to be popular, you have to have something going for you. You have to be nice, funny, fair, or always have something great to add to threads. All of those sound like great qualities to have in a moderator.

I would nominate myself, but I'm more of a lurker on these boards, I only signed up recently, dispite reading these forums since the old boards.

So instead, I nominate Tijs.

True. If I were to get a Moderator position for that board, I could make a FAQ thread that (hopefully) would end all the repetitive photo threads, the threads about who the better drummer is, discussions about retirement, etc. I could also make report people who are spamming the boards and making pointless threads ("offspring sux, greenday RULZ!!!11").

I'm touched that I've been nominated several times already. I would like to be up for nomination to be a moderator. I've been a member of message boards at offspring.com since the days of the Graffiti Wall (circa Ixnay on the Hombre). I've come to care very much about this community, and was honored to have been chosen as a moderator a few years ago for the Fan Corner forum (like our General Chat now).

I've really liked what you guys have done with this place and would very much like to be a part of it--and, contrary to popular belief it seems, I do still listen to and like the Offspring. Like anyone else, I have my favorite songs and albums, but the band retains my long-standing affection.

I've met more than one of my dearest friends IRL on offspring.com, and I'd like to see this place be able to spawn more of those friendships among others.

Same here! Actually, not "since" in my case...I was a complete addict on the Ixnay era BBS (tag wall), then I never kept up or even registered for any of the boards again until this past winter when I started here.

I'm just glad someone else remembers that old place. I remember this kid named "Fuelrod" there. I think he was my buddy.

Mota Boy
05-30-2005, 11:37 PM
So this question really comes down to who deserves it, and that's why I insist that you pick the veterans. We've been on the board for a while and we've done our share to support the online Offspring community, so if you had to choose between dozens of perfectly capable moderators on the forum, pick those who truely are commited to the board. It's only fair.
True that.

As I said in the earlier thread, everybody thinks (or at least secretly supects) that they'd be a great moderator, even though this isn't the case for everyone. And just as not everyone would make a great moderator themselves, not everyone would have the best ability to choose a great mod. Personally, I'd be annoyed to see someone who's been on the board for a few months ride in to power because they've befriended a bunch of other newbs. No, not everyone who is new would make a bad mod and there are some that would likely make very good ones, but it's so much a popularity contest that it's a crapshoot.

I'd say to go by Pope's list. Everyone listed there has been around for several years and still post regularly (which is why Faded Soul wasn't included). Not all of them would be good moderators, but it's a very good "short" list. Also, I don't think that a straight-up poll would be the best way to go about voting. To better reflect a multi-position candidacy, I think we should post our top four (or five, or three, or whatever) selections. It'll be more tedious to count, but I think the results will more accurately reflect the race. I'd hate to have to choose just one person for mod when... what, a dozen or so positions will be open?

And personally, I'd just like to be a Politics mod.

Not Ozymandias
05-30-2005, 11:55 PM
What's most desirable is people who won't go mad with power and become dicks. If you've been on other boards for a while, chances are you've seen this happen before. All we need is someone to be there to get rid of spamming/flooding and delete idiotic threads when they're created to excess. Having someone get uptight and butt-in when we're having fun would be lousy.

I think HornyPope and Endymion should mod General Chat since the former has already done it before on a previous incarnation of this board and did so well, and the latter appears level-headed and mellow enough to handle things.

the mods for general chat should be asked from people in the general chat, and the same with general offspring discussion if there's now going to be mods. they are like two different worlds. also if admins setup a vote, they should separate on-topic and off-topic discussions. the nominees for on-topic area doesnt suit off-topic id say.

Those memebers marked with an asterics are slightly newer but they still have at least two years at the boards and that's good enough. Mind you I don't like every single one of the nominees, but at least this is our community for the better and the worse. Please don't make a mistake of choosing someone outside. I'm temped to include more newer members who i'm sure would make great mods too (think JohnnyNemesis) but then i'd be basing the selection on my own preferance and I rather exclude any form of personal bias. Instead, I want some of the veterans to get the position. You newer folks just have to understand and deal with it.

i wonder why some people that were there before then too, aren't on that list. I don't see anything saying that you're posting only the names of the people who were there then, and would make good moderators. I myself would be a crappy one, since I don't come here that much anymore, but I have some severe doubts about some of those people being moderators. I agree with the idea of having members that have been here a long time, but I'd want to avoid any that suck up to their close group of pixelfriends.

Still, I don't see whats so bad about having no moderators, it's been like that for ages, and no one thought it was such a big problem

I nominate myself for obvious reasons. I am a vital and very active member of this brilliant site. I am always on the lookout for any types of spam and fight to rid the board of all types of it.

I am a firm believer in keeping this site in it's best operation and if you choose me as a moderator I will be more than happy on behalf of everyone to take on the position and use it for the good of this site.

My position as moderator would be backed by many other users who have witnessed my zero tolerance scheme of ridding this site of all types of spam in the past. Some users who would back me are:
*Dirtybird
*Billiejoe87_greenday
*Sk8ter hater
*Jimbob2005

In past circumstances I have been forced to rid spammers by using my unique ways. This has included putting high pressure on spam removal as well as linking up with several other users including those listed above behind the scenes to pressure spammers of the site.

Please take into consideration my application for administrator of this very fine board. If need be I will change my User Name. Please be aware that although I may have come to this board as an inconsiderate bafoon. I have grown up now and will only do what is best for this site. In conclusion please vote for me to be board administrator.

I forgot people. Yourself, Vicky, Faded Soul, Jesus, Tijs, Leo and probably more.

Vera
05-31-2005, 06:10 AM
I think a lot of people have this sort of weird misconception about what modding is about.

Like the admin said, they'd remove spam threads, graphic pics and private information.

That means, if someone's obviously spamming, posting porn, goatse or tubgirl (I mean the actual pic, not just a link, though I guess links would also be removed) or for example one of their classmate's phone number, the post will be removed.

This does NOT mean that only topics by certain members who're not cool in the mods' minds would be banned. I think ANY of us decent posters could become a mod because it's really not difficult to understand the line between a thread and an idiotic thread that's a part of a spam or has some SERIOUSLY questionable content.

The admin said this is still a free forum and you can still post a topic about your underwear if you must, as long as it's posted in the correct forum.

If some mod goes powercrazy, other posters can let the admin now.

All this elitism bullshit is just ridiculous. Vicky, you can come play with us and stop whining, for god's sake.

I think it's funny that voodoomagik said "They'll be picked as part of a popularity contest?!" on that thread, and then in another said he'd pick c0d3r and Koobie, two members who registered here a few weeks ago and exist for the sole purpose of defending him in arguments, as mods.

Give me a fucking break kiddo.

And to all: Mods can have banning powers if the Admin wishes to give them some. They're called Super Mods. I've seen them on other boards that use the exact same template as this one.

Oh man, you guys mentioned the old boards! I first joined there around February 2000 and remember Vkay (Vlad, I forget how your name was exactly spelled on there) and N (Nicole) and a few people who totally disappeared.

Also, this 133t talk. It's the same what Vera said. Apparently there's a 133t group that discriminates other members and makes them feel unwanted. But did you notice how people tend to be actually against 133t and not interested in talking to them? Isn't it basically the same? The 133t does not exist as a firm group of people. It might be just a group of some old and respected members, then again it's absorbing newer members too who prove themselves to be awesome and intelligent people. You're all starting to sound like Linda "Waaah, everyone is against me. The 133t gang!". She brought it upon herself no matter how much she wants to deny the fact.

Those are good choices for the General Chat and Politics section, but not really for the other sections.

So for the other sections: Tijs (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=41) (co-webmaster for theoffspring.info), BuddyHolly (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=171), Zee (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=68), RobinoZombie (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?u=53) ... and myself (also a veteran from 2000) I suppose

wise choice ;) but yes, i think we could do a great job at the other sections.

Re-read my post. I didn't say mods could ban.

But you said a lot of members will be lost. My point being that, ADMINISTRATORS will see if the person deserves the punishment of being banned.

05-31-2005, 10:54 AM
Asking the group at large regarding who should be a mod is going to get some fairly biased opinions. To make it fair I think you as the Administrator should spend a couple of weeks observing on how and what people post and base your decision off of that. Maybe you're already doing this. I don't know. At any rate anyone can say they'll be a great mod.

There is no 1337 group really. At least no entity that acts in an orchestrated and single minded way. The people who throw around this name, are the people who have generally acted like asses to certain members of the bbs, in a very public way, and now fear the shunning effect of their own actions. But instead of accepting the result of their own actions, feel the need to blame this on some uncontrollable and all-powerful entity.

JohnnyNemesis
05-31-2005, 11:22 AM
Indeed. Furthermore, I've found that this alleged "1337" group is the only objective group of people around. The people that have been accused of being in this exclusive group have been known to argue with each other, and passionately, very often. RXP, Endymion, wheelchairman, and Sin Studly don't hesitate to say what they feel no matter whose toes they're stepping on, friend or foe.

Incidentally, the people who often accuse others of being in this group are the only people I see kissing ass all over. Odd.

Actually Vicky, you're an exception. You're not an asskisser, but when I look aruond, I notice that almost everyone else that brings that up IS an asskisser within their own groups.

That obviously doesn't apply to the "so-called 1337" group. RXP's been getting into a lot of arguments lately, wheelchairman does when necessary, etc.

I've been an Offspring fan since '94 and I've always been on the BBS. On the last BBS, some of you may remember me as banana_fish. Anyways, for over a year I've been a moderator on an other website that has close to 10 000 members (www.420times.com)

We also use vBulletin over there so I already know how to use the moderator powers. I've never abused them and always played fair. So that's it for now, I hope to be able to help out on here too. Later



EDIT: I had alot more posts, but I see my never ending thread has been deleted so my post number has gone down, bummer.

I meant "lost", as in GOOD members leaving, as has happened in the past, not as being banned. In my opinion, there are already several members that "deserve " to be banned, but, whatever.

yehh i've been here for 4 years now (which is pretty scary/lame), but I rarely post anymore and I dont suck up (which is pretty much what all the ones I call the "elite" do), if that makes any sense at all! and its not all the old schoolers.. like, I wouldn't put Linda in that category either, or, err.. other people, that I don't remember the name of. Willem, Tizz not so much, Chris (nofx_kid on the old boards), are some others that I can think of :/

And the problem I could see with that, and those people being mods is that, they might not do what they're supposed to be doing, properly, if they're really friendly with the offender, through fear of 'falling out' or something lame like that. Or that if its someone they don't particularly (sp?) like, that they'd come down too hard on them. I was going to use examples but I can't think of any decent ones.

I know you don't suck up and you're a nice chica I respect. But I don't think with the others it's a matter of sucking up either. Most of those people talk to each other a lot on MSN, share LJ accounts and simply know a lot about each other's lives and are keen on each other. It's agreeing with each other because we tend to show mutual respect/friendship like that. Don't you catch the side of your friends in real life too unless they're wrong? What I call sucking up is what newbies are currently doing to Trip. That's a funny one.

It does seem that its just arsekissing a lot of the time, to me at least, and a lot of the people I would put in the "elite" seem to be pretty stuck up their own arses.
And to be honest, its very rare that I compliment my friends IRL, not because I'm mean.. I just.. don't. My 2 best friends are the same. Heh, infact, most of the time we make fun of each other, and we have stupid jokes and stuff. With other friends, that I've just met at college recently, I'll sometimes say "oh, you had your hair dyed, it looks nice" or "I like your bag, where did ya get it?", but only if I think thats true. :/
(woop, I have no idea if that makes any sense whatsoever! and cheers for not going crazy and arguing with insults and loads of swearing, cause I hate that :p)

I've not seen that too much, though I have to admit, I don't pay much attention to a lot of people anymore (that and I don't read that many topics, just +/-, Photo Album and random others that catch my eye)! They probably do, its just I've not seen it, so my perception (sp?) of people stays as it was, or something like that.

What I would say, some people in this thread are displaying, are perfect examples of Nietzche's 'ressentiment'-complex.

Vicky, your point of view, seems to that of someone who feels scorned by a group of people. I don't know why. You group a lot of people together, and collectively dislike them, yet you could be a part of 'this group.' Your choices and actions were your own. Quit this whining, like you are a step-above or something. It's pathetic.

This turned out to be an interesting discussion. I agree with vicky mostly. I know a lot of the 'cool' people have become good friends through other ways than the bbs. But still I notice people saying things like 'omg yer so hotttt <345' to people when they're not. Its a question of taste of course, but sometimes the pseudo-bisexuality just annoys me. I think I'm not making very much sense right now, since i had a few beers and I'm watching the bbc babbling about our voting tomorrow, so I'm a bit distracted.

There is no denying that you, Vicky, Sunny, Simma, RXP, Justin, and a few others are extremely attractive, and those people seem to be the ones that get those comments most. People love me, and NO ONE, aside from Isa Isa and maybe one or two other people, thinks I'm attractive at all, so I don't know if what I quoted from you applies much at all....

It seems more fair than people let on. The only difference is how aggressive people are!

We are looking for moderators for the forums. As those of you who've been on the boards recently know, this is a necessary step.

Each section will have two moderators elected by the board at large.

What Will A Moderator Do?
A moderator will be able to remove postings and threads and suggest users to be banned to the administrators. Moderators will be instructed that only posts, threads and users which include the following can be removed or banned.

1) Private Information - The band's or anyone else's
2) Pornography/Graphic Images - We have visitors of all ages and we'd like to keep it that way

Moderators will not determine what are acceptable discussion subjects, this is an open forum. But they can refer threads to the administrators for review.

A moderator should try to check their section at least twice a day, or as needed when contacted by an administrator.

Why Are You Adding Moderators?
Most everyone here has no problem being civil but those that don’t ruin it for the rest of us.

How Will This Work?
If you are interested being a moderator, please nominate yourself in this thread. If you think of someone else who would be a good moderator, you can nominate them as well. Once we have enough nominees, we will setup a vote. You must already be member for at least three months to become a moderator!

Thanks to all our loyal board members.

I know who you're thinking of. Some don't. Some didn't break the rules to be banned. I'm speaking for the ones who didn't brake the rules.
Pornography- No
Spamming- No
Personal Information- No, despite pictures.

Keep in mind, I'm only basing this on what I've seen.

But still I notice people saying things like 'omg yer so hotttt <345' to people when they're not. Its a question of taste of course, but sometimes the pseudo-bisexuality just annoys me.

I kinda agree with this Willem. Well mostly the "OMG <<<333" part. Sometimes I just think "Wow, I can't handle this over-the-top flattering/girlish giddiness". But a lot of the people who do that kinda thing have some really amazing things to say, and I just look past that, because it's all in good fun.

I feel like I am only more recently really starting to "fit in" here, and I may never totally just because I'm not the right personality, but I speak my mind when I see fit and people can take it or leave it.

I think one reason I don't click sometimes is because I'm not good at the "role-playing" aspect... you know... like *gives a hug* *runs away* *giggles like a schoolgirl* etc, etc. I think that stuff is silly and couldn't bring myself to take it seriously.

BUT, I think this "1337" talk is pretty silly too. This place is totally not like highschool. The cool people aren't the jocks and hot girls who are rich and look good and are smooth talkers and snobby, etc, etc... or whatever stereotype you wanna use. The cool people here are the people who have SOMETHING INTERESTING TO SAY and generally understand WHAT IS GOING ON.

I will agree there is a "divide" between different older members (eg. you, Vicky, etc.) but I think there are reasons... for one you actually know each other and live near each other or whatever... you tend to talk mostly amongst yourselves... you don't usually participate in a lot of the same discussions... so I don't know if it's so much a better/worse divide so much as a different interests divide. This is at least from my perspective because I know there have been actual conflicts between people, but I don't know the whole story of those things.

Linda, your problem is you bring it up on yourself that everyone is 'slagging' you. Nina has the right to express her opinion even though you don't agree with her. What are you gonna do now? Hate on her too just like you hate on all of us because we simply disagreed with something you said? I thought you were friends? Are you gonna ruin another friendship just like you ruined so many others on here? Horny Pope would make a good mod and everyone knows that, except those who'd rather not see it because they got "slagged".

hmmm. i've been here on and off for five years. but i am completely unreasonable, and so would be an awful mod. therefore i think i won't nominate myself.

but i do think 1565, JohnnyNemesis, HornyPope, Mota Boy, Unholynightbringer, Endymion, and probably Betty would be good mods.

i'm an awful female, i have little faith in a woman's ability to moderate.

Not to sound offended or anything (like a feminist which I'm not) but this was a very, very bad stereotype about all women. Or it sounded like that, I'd leave out the second part if you feel like your being a woman wouldn't be appropriate for this job, because the second part is a generalisation.

yes, because we wouldn't have time to moderate a big bad forum full of nasty boys, such as this one - what with doing our hair, putting on our make-up, going shopping and having long phone conversations with our friends. And what about when that time of the month came? Oh dear Lord; we'd just go mad and ban everybody in sight.

Those memebers marked with an asterics are slightly newer but they still have at least two years at the boards and that's good enough.

oh dear. seems i've offended people. the reason i started with "i'm an awful female..." is because i know it's wrong. what i meant was, i'm a let down to women because i've chosen more males than females. i didn't actually mean women would be bloody awful. i probably should have said i appear to have little faith blah blah blah. and i didn't mean i'm an awful female in that i'm girly or something. again, i meant let down because of the not choosing many females. oh grrrah.

ay dear. i'll have to explain myself better in future.

Linda, people were begging me to ban you, edit out your posts, give you custom titles (remember "Old Hag"?) etc... I did none of that. I EVEN OFFERED TO GIVE YOU BACK YOUR NAME WHEN YOU VOLUNTARILY GAVE IT AWAY TO SICKBOY BECAUSE YOU SAID YOU WOULDN'T EVER COME BACK. Admire my self control. Shit, a person can't get any more objective than that.

Then why the fuck didn't you?

The fact remains that you should not have posted my pic like that.
What the fuck did I ever do to you, but tease you a little?
I just don't think anyone who posts a members picture for the sole purpose of getting them slagged and made fun of is worth being a moderator. I also don't think the people who participated in the slagging should be moderators. I never posted anything that was any worse than what any of you posted. You guys slagged me, I slagged you back. So what. But now you all act like I was the only one doing the slagging. bull-fucking-shit.
You guys need to stop acting so all fired innocent, when you're guilty as sin.

In that case I think I'm an awful female as well. But honestly, sometimes I think that men are better suited for management/leader positions simply due to their decisive/less sentimental/etc nature. Like, when the argument of why there aren't more females in high positions (the glass ceiling), I'm not sure if it's just a patriarchal thing or whether men are overall just better suited for the job.

Anyway, it's a generalization obviously, and also a personal opinion, and one that I haven't entirely decided at that. (Also note additional point: women are way better at other things). My goal in life is to be a super important boss person because I love to be in charge, so I'm not gonna let that dissuade me.

It's funny because that is the exact opposite of the truth in my experience. Women are less sentimental, better suited for these jobs, etc.

My mom's an awesome boss. So's my dad. Although I'd imagine my mom could lose her cool more easily than my dad, and I've known a lot of other women to be like that (me too!)

But really, I could be totally wrong. It's just something I've thrown around in my mind. When I've had more "life experience" maybe I'll change my mind, maybe not. Boys have their faults too... like possibly not paying enough attention to detail... which can be pretty key. But then women might be less aggressive?

Blah.

I think I understand quite fine. Mods aren't that big of a deal. But making comments like the 'Great way to get me slagged more.' doesn't actually make people respect you more. Who cares if you get slagged? It's not that big of a deal. If you think of yourself as a good person, why care if you get slagged over the internet. Some of these people you have never met and will never meet. Forget about it. You shoudn't think that highly of their opinions, if they mean so little to you. It might suck to get slagged, but just ignore it. You shouldn't make a deal of it, because all you're doing is feeding the fire. Also please just hear me. I'm trying to help and you're telling me to shut the fuck up.

Oh my God, that was just too funny!

And as for Linda, I'd like to reduce my argument down a little, because we've trodden this path so many times, and I know it won't make a blind bit of difference. So here it is:

Linda, shut up.
