Moderators are supposed to set and maintain the standards of post quality. Not set and maintain two based on what banners you have beneath your name. If moderators can post hilarious images and spam threads, then don't get pissy at members that assume they're allowed to as well.
Me and my newly formed stiffy agree with Jodd. We can't very well run a ship that is divided on whether you are an ass-kisser or an infidel. We need more objectivity, with specific rules like "mods can't marry other mods" or "mods can't have mod friends." You have to put us first. We joined this site to put up memes, just like you did.

Look, Cody. Look at what you've become.

No, Cody made a post closing the thread, and I proceeded to **** with him by editing his post, he did it back, and we were screwing around all without making one single post. I don't see how this is an issue. We didn't spam a thread up, we spammed a post up. Unless you went and looked at the post after it was edited, you wouldn't even know it happened, all while the original point of Cody's post was kept quite obvious.

Re: Talk About The Moderators: Likes and Dislikes

John and Radek are both excellent mods. Many others are subpar.

A moderator is nothing without good judgment, regardless of how much you contribute.

Re: Talk About The Moderators: Likes and Dislikes

If there's a thread like this, I must bring up the unfair harassment of Pete a while back by a certain mod. He was simply defending his rights and got persecuted for it, the mod eventually infracting him to all hell. I think that it was entirely un-called for and despicable behavior on the part of a moderator.

As far as other mods go, I haven't noticed anything really untoward except for maybe a few threads that had potential getting locked-- but even then anything that really stepped over the line moderatorially was handled one way or another. So keep up the good work, mods.

I have to agree with Jodd. I don't know about the specific threads he's talking about, but I've definitely seen mods go off and have fun, and then give people infractions when people do the same things they do. I see it more often than I'd like, though there are some mods on here who don't do that and thus I applaud them.

Re: Talk About The Moderators: Likes and Dislikes

Well I don't mind it if the mods have a bit of fun every now and again. Sometimes it is for laughs, but honestly it does lets me know that they are just normal, and not uptight people with power.

Nod Flenders was a troll and banned for a reason. He's tried making multiple accounts, hijacked Kitsune's and been a pain in the ass. I forget exactly what happened with what you're talking about, but I feel no remorse for him and in the end, he did deserve the infraction he got.

If you have a problem with something a mod does, we encourage you to PM the mod and take it up with them. However many members seem to think this is an invitation to harrass the mod and tell them how stupuid they are. If it's a misunderstanding then there's a goos chance the infraction can be reverse. If it's not, the mod will explain why you got it and that should be it. Arguing will only result in another infraction.

Re: Talk About The Moderators: Likes and Dislikes

I don't think this is a criticism, but I haven't seen John around SD for a while. Is he he just lurking in the background? I couldn't blame him. Everything there has been discussed to death before. He can pretty much rely on all the older members to recite arguments he probably originally posted.

Though maybe I've just missed him.

No, I've been lurking a bit, I admit, mostly due to being busy as all get-out with work and such.

But don't worry Notsil, "Notsil" is how I've always read your name.



Oh, and to be on topic, I think Pani's a good mod, if perhaps mainly because she's sometimes the only global mod or higher on late at night here. Cody too, but I usually tend to think he's got more important stuff to do (like mess with what banners he's wearing. Right now he's a forum mod of no particular forum. Or at least not one I can see.)

I'll second that Pani's a pretty legit mod. She does her job but she doesn't do it over-zealously, and she still knows how to have fun

Re: Talk About The Moderators: Likes and Dislikes

Oh, Zach, I always read it as *******. Sorry. Easy mistake to make.

"you're a *****/whore/shut the **** up" etc etc, yes, I know <3

But for srs, Zach, I appreciate you muchly as a mod. You can have fun, but you lay down the law too. I love that.

I think Vey does a great job over in the Creativity Corner, too.

And Pani, like others have said, your effort is noticed and appreciated.
