Default Is it THAT hard...

...to find solid moderators that actually do their job? Almost every non-game board on BF has absolutely shitty moderating. And i made this a thread instead of a pm because i feel that it's something that should be made public. I think everyone should weigh in with their opinions here. Why is it that moderators like Tassy (no offense to him, he's a cool guy and everything) remain blue after weeks and months of inactivity? Obviously global mods aren't an effective way of moderating the forums. I think it's time to greenify certain mods because they just aren't doing their damn job.

Anyways, don't delete this thread please. I really think it's important that everybody give their opinions here publicly so we can legitimately decide what's going to happen.

I'm with Ace.

I love our mods, but after some time something needs to be done. Sure not much bad happens here, but still, standards guys.

QUICK

DELETE THE EVIDENCE, HIDE OUR TRACES OUR FORUMS ARE PERFECT!

ok on topic:

I agree but I also fear that in the end we'll become a community filled with greens and blues and just little white and thats because of our lack of activity, besides is this an urgency? Do we NEED it? I dont think so.

Lets say who you think would make a good mod for AnE for example or any other forum (SD maybe)

I'm 26, thank you very much.

I agree with Ace, but I think what he is trying to say is there should be a limit to the time we allow active mods to be inactive before we retire them.

I've volunteered to mod, but still no response from anyone. Oh well.

Default Re: Is it THAT hard...

Eh, even so, on the CoD boards I mod on, we're asked to be on a minimum of once every 2 days to keep an eye on things.

A month of inactivity would be beyond what's acceptable for us there.

Just saying.

Not saying this specifically to anyone - but when we look @ new mods - if we think you are part of the problem we're trying to solve/not leading by example we aren't likely to pick you to mod that area.

Default Re: Is it THAT hard...

I completely disagree with Ace on this subject, the GMs and administrators need to avoid trying to police the forums unless the most dire situations call for their intervention. I cannot count the amount of times a staff member has intruded into my personal space, gotten in my way or even threatened me over private messages in order to try and prevent me from experiencing this board to the fullest for the "common good". It's a bit frustrating really, I hope we can find a compromise on this issue in the not so distant future.

Default Re: Is it THAT hard...

I remember a time when it was a sin to double post and I got a PM about it or an infraction or something of the sort. It seems now more serious actions on the forums go unoticed or so it seems. I feel that if someone is completely out of line there should be consequences and of course the forums need to be monitored on a regular basis. I've deleted or edited my owns post if I felt at a later time they were inappropriate. We should all take accountability for our own actions considering I think most of us who post here are adults.

Default Re: Is it THAT hard...

HV I think what ace is trying to point out is that when you ask for a thread deletion or report a post the response time is minimal and a lot of the time you get a response from a global mod or super admin rather then that boards moderator. It's not exactly fair to them and it's not exactly fair to the posters to have to rely on such a small group of fairly sporadic posters. Requiring mods to meet some sort of posting or at least browsing criteria makes sense to me. How are they supposed to know what's happening in the forum they moderate if they aren't there?

And to respond to your other point, about smods and moderators invading your 'personal space'

This isn't nor has it ever been a democracy. When you flamebait and troll a board any mod will eventually get fed up of having to trail around you babysitting and they will contact you specifically. Adhering to the rules being civil and arguing in a manner that isn't simply hurling insults will have you left alone. There are plenty of posters who have been here for years without an infraction or with very rare infractions. You can enjoy the board to the fullest while still allowing everyone else the freedom to as well. And I think that's where you're wrong. You want the mods to let this board spiral into flamebaiting/spam/etc. With mods only dealing with the 'most dire' situations. This is a civil board and one frequented by a lot of younger kids. Why should they let this turn into a mini 4chan?

Yes, I understand that, and that's precisely why I disagree. I believe the moderation of the forums ought to be minimal to begin with.

I think the best solution is to have less moderators in general. Turn some people into the greens and the problem is solved.

Default Re: Is it THAT hard...

But why? Why should a board that isn't that heavily moderated to begin with moderate even less? There are only 2 boards I can think of where moderation has ever been 'overdone' and that's SD and A&E during the WAYLTN Prohibition of 07. Other than that the mods are very hands off already unless they receive specific complaints from multiple posters.

Default Re: Is it THAT hard...

Well as far as I see it the only legitimate point the OP has is the fact that we got some Blue mods who aren't online for weeks at a time. That's a technicality that can be easily fixed by turning them green...

or of course we can ignore this "problem" altogether and leave the state of moderation on the forums as it is right now. I am specifically referring to CC and GD.

SD I would love to have reformed. Kaizen and GA have provided excellent suggestions for that section. I think Kaizen qualifies as an SD mod. Same with GA.

Except they don't like each other and are two of the most outspoken SD members with the easily some of the best posts on the board. See the problem? The most visible solution isn't always exactly the best one.

Ok look Nuts i think you're a cool person and all but that is one of the poorest excuses you could've come up with. Since when is there an age requirement to be an effing internet website moderator?
