Not long now until the news mods are announced.
Anyone want to make any bets as to who the may be?
Well you would make a fabulous one Daahlink! Moderator that is.:biggrin1:
I had this conversation with a few people... I know who I think would make a great moderator.
Novice_btm~ The guy has excellent eyes for Trolls.
Hickboy~He doesn't give a shit about what people think about him.
Claire~She has a calming effect, but she seems to enjoy authority.:tongue:
I think the question should be WHY would anyone apply? It's a pretty thankless task.... I certainly wouldn't want to do it.
I'm sure there has been a lot of speculation about who may apply and who may be appointed but I have seen nothing posted by anyone. That is why I started this thread.
Yes Jeff I agree entirely with your choices. Did they apply though? Time will tell......................
Agreed and they also have to have skin like a Rhino because every post they make will be scrutinised by the masses.
Im Kinda New Here.. I Know They Are There.. However This Site Is Extremely Tollerant.. Extremely..soo Exactly What Is Unexeptableand What Can You Be Banned For As Ive Seen Recently Someone Was Banned???
You are correct Trufit this site is a lot more tolerant than most and that is what makes it unique and successful. There have to be limits though and I think most folks accept that fact.
If you don't know what you can be banned for here is a link to the TOS http://www.lpsg.org/new-member-introductions/24328-lpsg-terms-of-service.html
In my completely unscientific opinion, of the people you see banned:
85% were under 18
10% were spammers
2% were "trolls" who joined just to mess with people and disrupt the site
2% were people who posted under multiple identities to create the impression they were different people
1% were consistently nasty and disregarded warnings to chill out.
Dave's suggestion to read through the Terms of Service is a great idea for everyone.
I am going to throw a hell of a retirement party for me and my husbear.
Hey, Wait, You Left Out The NumBer Of People That Were Thrown OuT for Typing In Annoying Mixed Cases! :tongue:
You are SUCH a troublemaker!!!!!!! :moon:
Just thought of a few people at the site who would make EXCELLENT moderators.:tongue:
Jeff would be damned good at Moderating too.
Tragically, that number is 0 ...
*but I've got a few days left to change that*
I appreciate the efforts and generosity of all of the mods.
Thanks for getting your hands dirty diapering and/or ejecting others on our behalf. I know the job is time consuming and the armchair critics can make it distressingly thankless. And it can seriously diminish your enjoyment of the forum.

A big salute! You rock!
And less recently, but not forgotten, Altairion!
Um, so GET BUSY!!! :tongue:
Good point you guys. They all bring something different to the forum and have done a great job so far. Thanks especially to those bowing out. Keep up the good work those continuing.
