What's with all the hype about becoming a mod?

Post by Delta on Sun Dec 05, 2010 10:14 pm

I mean, it's boring. You have to look through a list of reports and ban/silence users who broke the rules. I'm an admin, but that's okay, these forums aren't huge. Sparkworkz and PR3 are huge. So why are people so desperate so become mods?

People just like the status and the power.
And actually, being a mod is alright. I'm a mod on linerider.com, and all I do on there is ban and delete spambots, and help everyone out

ZandexLR is right, that's what I like about being a mod.

EDIT: sometimes it can be irritating

Oh, that makes sense.

Yeah, and it becomes irritating having to just report.

i see what you mean, 'cause when the spambots start kicking in and we have loads of people signed up to these forums. We are gonna get like 2500+ PMs all (practically) saying the same thing, like for example, one guy would probably PM us: 'OMG theres a spamBOT here PL0X'
and half of the messaged we get (2500 divided by 2 = 1250) would be in leet speech aswell.
I definitely get you point now.

No offence guys, but I don't think you'll be getting 2000+ members.
Even sparkworkz only has about 10-15 active members.
It's hard work getting a forum started, so, unless you advertise it heavily, I doubt it'll get very popular

yeah i know, i didn't say we will get more than 2000+ members, but i did say we can get 2500+ PMs, it doesn't mean we get 1 post from each member, like 25% of those posts can be from 1 person.

You said 2500 PM's - one user doesn't usually send more than one PM about a spambot..

Well, spambots can seriously churn out messages and posts, BUT we do have all the different Banhammers here... IP Banhammer, Permabanhammer, and the Account Delete Battleaxe. I think that all three combined will wipe out a spambot account in a couple of minutes.

Um, speaking of mods, you may have noticed that I de-modded everyone. We really don't need mods, I can handle anything that actually comes along. I mean, there's under one hundred posts, 6 registered, and ALL GENUINE POSTS. Sorry, but I'll mod people who have been mods somewhere else, when and if we need them.

What about people who are ADMINS somewhere else?

But if not, Zandex is a good bet.

Yes, you're on the list. Rolling Eyes But I don't think it's going to be necessary to add mods anyway.

Good point, piddly little clan forums aren't important enough for Spambots to attack.
