This forum has been in service for over 7 years. Half of that time I have been mod and Maegra has been mod the whole time. We know what we're doing. Thanks for your consideration, but we have it under control.

You have been a member here for some time. Please, you're causing a ruckus, so we're going to ask you to stop.

With that spam bot idea, people who haven't been on but came back (like Will, for a while) wont be able to. And that's not good.

I suggested the deletion of spam bot accounts with 0 posts several months ago, just so you know. I would volunteer to do it myself if I thought it was worth the time, but it really isn't. They just sit there and do nothing now.

EDIT: Here it is.

Then Add a Mod to take care of this work

BTW Merc, it's Sea's own fault that he doesn't have ads, so it's also his fault he is paying more so than he normally would be

Erm, the lack of ads is a good thing, and I  believe we should be thankful towards Sea.   Please don't get defensive, we're all friends here.

I think the banning idea has potential, but I do see the problems.   What if instead we banned people who haven't been on for two years?   And then instead of trying to do them all at the same time, we do them a handful at a time until they're gone, it would take longer but it wouldn't be as demanding.    Maybe you could get two or three volunteers to be temporary mods to help out with that? Just spit-balling of course.   I wouldn't mind helping with that,  but I couldn't guaranty being very speedy about it since I'm not on here 24/7.   But with my slight OCD nature, I would actually probably enjoy going through and cleaning up a little.  Maybe others on the site are of a similar view?     Of course, if this idea is vetoed, then oh well.  No problem.  :smile:

We've toyed with the idea with temp mods and giving power to people before and things got messy sometimes, so we try to avoid that when possible.

*nods* very understandable.   I'm in charge of, or an officer in several school clubs.  I understand the difficulty of giving people power.    Okey doke.  *shrug*  scrap the idea, but I'm here to help if ever it is needed.         Though I am a little relieved.  I know I would only feel guilty at not doing more than I'd have time for, even if I were to do more than expected.   Of course, though, as I said, happy to help if you need it.

Trust me, I feel guilty myself for not being able to put in a whole lot of extra effort into this place, but time constraints simply don't allow for it. We all wish this place was tidier, even us Mods. Unfortunately we just have to make do with what we've got for now.

It's not a problem Maegra, I understand.  :smile:         Besides, the spambots are nothing like when I first joined, so I'm rather content   :smile:



Gah!!! I just noticed a major typo in my post to Asura.  I'll go back and fix it.

I know I'd only ever want to be a restricted mod of the RP section. That's really all I'd ever want.

Yeah.  I don't think I'd like being a permanent mod. I'd rather help, then quickly be demoted again.

It would definitely have to be someone that's trust worthy, and won't start a coup and ban everyone. lol.
