You're aware you may have just started a thing, right?

I feel like maybe we should unofficially refer to anti-character-assassination moderations as the Umbridge Protocol.

For the sake of transparency, not naming names yet, but two candidates have responded. One with a yes, and one with a no.
I'm awaiting response from one more, then we'll know how many mods we'll be getting definitely by the end of the week. At the moment, it's looking like, at the very least, 2, because someone already on the staff list has also expressed interest as well.

Eh Ted, I suppose I've been called worse a time or two. You've most certainly got what it takes so I'm rather surprised you didn't take the plunge. That said it's not exactly ridden with benefits either.

Nice shiny new mod flag by the way.

Step right up, step right up!
We have some new moderators including, as Defender rightly said, Cartertemm, but there's more, and they can be found in a topic in the newsroom.
In the dedicated topic, there's also me trying one of Dark's tactics that is to come up with something that I hope people will find a little amusing, although be warned it's very silly and I get the serious stuff out of the way first, but if you also keep on reading, there may be another surprise in there for you all too should anyone be interested in trying, apart from the usual mod welcoming. Below is a link to that topic, but this topic is remaining open for certain for people who still wish to discuss, plus in the future we may need more staff too.

omg, defender as a moderator, hellz to the naw. He's too emotional, and while he does want to do the right thing, he gets too weighed down in antfuckery that is only barely within the periphery of the issue.

Speaking personally here, the reason he was at least selected as a candidate is because he makes fairly good points and, despite his propensity to wander at times - which I also share, I might add - he's got a good head, doesn't get hyperemotional and seems relatively nonpartisan in his approach. I respect his choice to decline the position, obviously, but I supported his candidacy in the first place.

After deliberating for several months, I would like to nominate myself. At the moment at least, I am on the forum at least a little every day, and I don't see that changing any time soon. I am excellent at seeing differing points of view and take them into account when making decisions. My communication skills are also at least somewhat polished. Finally, I spend a lot of time in introspection and try to work on my weaknesses when I find them or have them pointed out. I don't have the list of requirements open right now, but there were no points where I think I am lacking at least as so far as moderating.

Thank you for any consideration my nomination would bring!

thanks,
Michael

I really don't want to be all official moderator about that last post, but please. Enough with the sniping towards staff. It's not helping anything at this point.
Thank you kindly.

That's okay. If they want me, I am more than happy to help out. If not. I am perfectly happy to leave all that responsibility in their hands. I think I would be good at it, but it won't get me all bent out of shape if they don't want or need me.

thanks,
Michael

Moderation:

MasterOfDeath, you can consider this an official caution. The next step will be a warning. Please don't make me do this.
As Liam pointed out, the sniping has to stop. We all know your stance by now. If you can't stop yourself from behaving this way, perhaps this isn't the place for you, or perhaps you need a little time to cool off. I would be saying this, and acting this way, no matter who you were targeting. You obviously have some sort of score to settle, but I promise you that you are not doing yourself any favours. In fact, the reason you're getting a caution - I'd considered warning you, honestly, but I'm playing it gently in deference to the delicacy of the last little while - is because a lot of people have already been telling you to cut it out, self included, and it's not making any difference. There is going to come a time, if you keep this up, where stricter measures are taken against you. My advice: cool your jets, give this a little time. I recognize and appreciate that you don't like me, and don't like the way things are being handled. Now please be more constructive about it.

end moderation

Now, back to the main issue at hand:

I am personally okay with Drums as a mod, and barring opinions of the rest of the team, I see no reason we can't deal with this fairly quickly. I've seen his posts (well, many of them, anyway), and most of it matches the little self-assessment he performed a few posts back. Just putting my two cents' worth in here to endorse the guy. Transparency FTW.

@141 You realize you just undermined Liam's efforts to resolve this in a peaceful manner, right? I mean, if the guy had posted again, that would be definitely time to do something about it, as his behavior has gotten way out of hand. You, however, have decided to come and trot the big guns out, and by so doing, have cut right across his efforts. Right now, the team's public image is not looking so hot, and it would be best if you guys showed a united front. It's not a good look when staff members are cutting swaths in other staff member's paths.

Mmeh. Truthfully he really has it coming. I was hoping it could be settled some what peacefully, but there are several instances where he's been skating on thin ice due to his snarky little comments towards the staff. Keep in mind cautiosn do not go on anyone's record, but I was trying to handle it somewhat peacefully. i doubt it would have done much good though.

Normally, I do not like stepping in front of people that way, so Liam, my apologies. I'm not going to make a habit of that.

I've tried to be peaceful with this guy in the past and it just doesn't seem to work. A caution is the first step for me, and it took several comments from him before I even got that far.

Now let's just see where it goes from here. If there's more snark, I will let someone else handle it, particularly if the snark is aimed at me.

No biggy. Thanks for doing that actually. Whether people realize it or not, I try to handle everyone with kit gloves. I hate having to bring down the hammer. it never feels good.
if yall don't like something we're doing, please be constructive. But also understand that at the end of the day the staff has final say. We're going to do our best to try nd make sure the forum runs as smoothly as possible. Invariably, people's feathers may get ruffled, but none of us are out for a power trip. Moderating/administering a forum isn't exactly a high and mighty powerful gig. If I wanted power I'd run for Mayor or city council or something. Ya know?
