Let me set up a scenario for you:

Someone posts something horribly offensive at 7:30pm Central (1:30am British). What are the chances that a moderator is going to see it and take care of it before the American forum rush at night?

Slim to none.

I should say here that this is NOT a criticism of our current mods. Jonman and Leo are doing just fine, and I haven't any complaints about them. In fact, I should give Leo major props here - he's been doing so much work here in the forum. He's beyond the call of volunteer duty, big time.

The problem here the lack of an American mod.

I know that Jonman's here on US soil, but he's very busy with his real life. He's gone an awful lot. This means he is not here to take care of mod duties all the time. Once again, this is not a criticism, simply a fact of observation.

Mata and Leo are both Brits. They're not going to be lurking around here in the middle of their sleep-time while we Americans post it up in the evenings.

This leaves us with a problem. Say that afore-mentioned scenario comes into play. More likely than not, that post is going to be sitting around here, causing trouble and upsetting people for 6 to 7 hours. That 6-7 hour stretch includes the prime forum time for the American posters.

Which comes back to my statement about an American mod. We need a consistant mod force from this continent. Someone has got to be there during that peak usage time.

Not to mention that there are still 30 pages of unmoved threads in the General Chat forum... It's a big task, and it couldn't hurt to have more moderators working on it, right?

I really do think that an American mod would solve some of these issues.

Two cents, everyone?

it's a damn good point, cause for a lot of the time there's no mod around...and when something like that happens, it creates chaos...

someone that'll be around for the prime time over here is a good idea, cause it'll hopefully stop any of this happening...

There's nothing I could say that you didn't sum up, so I'll just put my own spin on it.

Jonman and Mata are busy, so Leo usually gets stuck with moderating our stupid little fights which I have terribly tried to cut down on. He seems to have a severe lack of appreciation that needs to stop, and I think he also needs a new assistant that puts in as hard as he does. My ideas for the new mods? MissyA, LoLo, Debaser, or ravein are fine. The only issue with ravein is that I don't see her around much, and we should have a mod that counters Leo's time tables so things are being watched near 'round the clock with the two counteracting mods. My best bet? Debaser. He's around plenty, doesn't abuse his priviledges, and he's already mastered and kept a very good eye, a very FAIR eye on IRC. Seeing as he's already exhibited the qualities, I say he ought to be modded because he does it correctly.

But I'm sure somebody will have conflicting beliefs. After all, s'just my two cents.

Offending post,where ?. I think that sounds like a good idea but I dont think we should get rid of Jonman either, I am sure he is a very busy guy and ties very hard to partrol the forums. Someone who can pick up the slack sort of speak

i agree completely...an american mod who is around a lot would be great (or just someone who is on the forums during the main activity times for american forumites). it would have saved the drama that happened yesterday cause of threads being posted in wrong places and whatnot.

*edit*...no one ever said get rid of jonman, reaper. would just be another helper, i think.

No one's saying to get rid of Jonman.

We're looking for additional mods, not replacement here.

Just clearing that up.

erm... I dunno if me postin in here is appropriate, an I dun wanna sound like I'm complainin, but I would like a little help sometimes... I know mata an jon are busy, but sometimes it feels like I'm the only one lookin after this place, an it's too much fer one person...

I spent the first 45 minutes I was here today shiftin inappropriately posted threads, deletin offensive threads an generally tellin people off fer misbehavin... The main problem bein that in 90% of the cases it was too damn late - as will always be the case cos I'm either in bed or at work when the US people are postin.

The main problem bein that, after those 45 minutes, I didn't really feel like bein here any more...

Jus to go against what syuu said; I dun think debs is a good choice cos he too is a Brit, an unless he's prepared to stay up till 8 - 10am every day, it's not really gonna work.

He is good for it because he's always up so late. I'd say until 4-6 AM brit time, and he covers most of the night shift when you're not around. He's usually back when I wake up, so there's a very small time space that he isn't watching the forums or IRC.

Well everyone has the same opion as I on this subject and I think if you want more people in the North american region, We should be able to volunteer and take a civilized vote on the american OR Canadian*cough* mod.

I would be willing to volunteer my services, im sure the veterans could teach me a thing or two, or perhaps someone with more posts could be qualified.

I apologize for discluding the Canadians - I should've thought about that. Of course a Canadian would be acceptable as well.

I think that pretty much Mata asks who he wants to be the mod if they will do it and then they say "yes" or "no".... lol

I know the feeling mate, I'm normally around harassing people about their sigs and trying to keep the place looking presentable! I was on here for three hours the other day... I think that the case is that we are patrolling different aspects of the forums, I get the feeling that I'm the main person poking people about massive sigs (speaking of which, some of the images in people's sigs here are getting rather carried away aren't they?) but there are other things that I don't need to do so much, probably because you're doing them Leo. I do appreciate it and I'm sure the regulars on here do too.

Of course, we shouldn't have to be doing all this in the first place...

But I think that your point is well made MissyA and I have thought about this before. Back when Jon was single this wasn't such a problem because he had more time on his hands, but currently he's rather occupied wink.gif

My personal feelings are that MissyA or Lolo would make very good mods. Are either of you interested in the position?
