    We have to do something about this. Until then, can I ask everyone to report andyf's (and any other spammers that you come across) posts? A few of us already have, but the more reports, the better.

    *signs petition*

    I've reported a few of his posts that I've come across. What a troll.

    I'm NOT, however, signing any petition (when was there a petition to begin with?), because petitions, in general, never work; but still, this thread alone should be proof that some thing needs to be done, for the good of the community.

    yeah...I'm not sure why people have suddenly thought this was a petition. it's not. It's just us expressing concern over the mod situation :confused:

    I wasn't being serious about signing a petition. It's kind of just throwing in my support so it's sort of like signing a petition. I know there's not actually one to sign. I was being metaphorical.

    Thats what I figured, but then everyone started saying that and I wasn't sure if people were clear with the point of this thread XD

    Don't worry, the point of the thread is perfectly clear. I knew there wasn't really a petition, but as Bannanasketch said, it's sort of the same.

    I agree. We can't have 1 person running everything here...

    This is a very important topic. It must be a very difficult job for poor Ed. We do need more mods who have the time to patrol the boards regularly.

    It's like having a crime filled neighbourhood where all the appointed police officers except one are called away most of the time.

    Say come to think of it if spammers can get away with their posts once they reach a certain number then how about legitimate members who go bad and become troublesome? Just how exactly does the banning system operate on the new style forum anyway?

    From what Ed has said, only Phil can ban members. Ed can actually delete members within a certain time period after joining. Which makes absolutely no sense to me.

    As it stands, there are two people here moderating the forum. Ed and Phil. Both people are extremely busy. So I don't see why we can't have another mod with the power to ban members at any given time due to poor behavior. With another mod Phil and Ed won't be bothered all the time, Phil won't be as bombarded with problems and concerns of users that he doesn't have time to deal with. it will ease the pressure off of both of them.

    Well said, Sarge. It would be easier for both Phillip and Ed if there's at least one more mod around here.

    Should we all vote on a mod to suggest to Phillip?
  13. Sgt Floyd

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    I don't know...that seems like a bad idea to me :/

    I'm afraid people will turn it into a popularity contest and vote for people they like, not people they think would be a good mod...

    At least Phil is aware of this thread's existence, or at least, it appears he's at least looked at it.

    Hmm..good point. I guess we'll leave it up to Phillip and the mods to decide. I happen to think a certain member would make a good mod, not becuase of any popularity or anything, but I think he's been proven to be a good mod.

    Whoever a new mod be, we need to make sure this person can be depended upon on three basic principals:

    1. Activity - Some one who is active on MC enough to really give Phil and Ed the help they need.
    2. Longevity - Some one who has been at MC for a decent amount of time to be familiar with the community.
    3. Firmness - Some one who will handle situations fairly and firmly.

    I would love to be a mod!
  18. Sgt Floyd

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    Guys, please refrain right now from saying that you want to be a mod or that so-and-so would make a good mod. This is how popularity fights start out and one of the reasons the MC awards failed. Too much tension between people competing and disagreeing with who is better. This is a BIG deal and we don't need any bad blood between people

    Well said Sargey.

    I also want to say I'm very surprised in fact that Ed doesn't have the power to ban or suspend. I thought that was one of the things that a mod was bestowed with right from the beginning. That's the way it is on other boards I belong to.

    It seems weird to me to be honest. Just like saying only the Chief of Police actually has the power to arrest anybody. Not any of the team of officers.:confused:

    I do agree with everything that has been said, but not just for the forum, but the website as a whole. I would love to see MC get a whole new makeover with new content, background, and new banners. I love MC and would love to see it grow into so much more
