Shouldn’t a good moderator be interested in threads?

The TIE Army thread was different, though. It would contain friendly mucking about and then one hour later and ten pages later it would turn to hostility, and back again. It made for a long, mindless read. It was locked rather quickly after someone posted an objectionable picture.

Shouldn’t a good moderator be interested in threads? Not to say that your a bad moderator, but come on, as a moderator you should check out the threads, read each post, make sure everything’s okay, and then watch for the new ones. Correct? I remember when you were away from here for a while, and when someone asked you, you said nothing interesting was going on. Reason?

Unreasonable. Every person here has his or her own life outside brickfilms. Personally I prefer a less active moderator if (s)he is the (wo)man for the job. As mentioned, if people are offended they can always notify a moderator of objectionable behaviour.

I hope this doesn’t hurt the high level of esteem you’ve always held for me. :lol: You’re right though, you’re getting all the tough questions. This could be perceived as a good sign, because it means people are taking you seriously. Nonetheless, I’ll do my part and ask the Duke a few things I was wondering about: if you want to avoid foul language, are you considering using a filter of some sort? Also, do you have any plans for LDF?

I plan on for the most part just letting the moderators keep on doing what they’re doing, since as you said, they are doing a good job. I do plan on changing a couple of things, the biggest thing would be to more clearly define what language is not acceptable. I should have mentioned this in the first post, but I didn’t. I think the moderators are doing a good job, but I really think the standards for language should be raised. Since when are “d-words,” “h-words,” and “a-words” acceptable? I think that things like this should not be tolerated any more than an f-bomb or whatever else. Many will think that’s too strict and old-fashioned, but that’s what I plan on changing.

“Cometgreen” wrote: And again, I don’t mean this in any malicious way.

No problem, and thanks for raising those questions.

“Dewfilms” wrote: What makes you stand out compared to the other candidates?

I think my stance on language would be the biggest thing. Other candidates seem to think our language issues here are almost non-existent. As I explained above, I would disagree.

Stefan.

Then maybe we should add a “Report To Moderator” button MOD to the forum. It would be easier then sending a PM and having to do everything, when the server could do it for you.

While I’m talking about a MOD, what is your stance on adding different MODs to the forum, whether it be adding new BBCode, new pages, or functions?

I didn’t want to keep on posting my own thoughts in someone else’s thread, so I addressed LegosJedi’s suggestion here. Although it would be interesting to know if the area of forum programming would fall under the Minister of Discussion’s authority.

Cometgreen, who wouldn’t like the idea of being Z’s superior

@ Dewfilms:

Like I said, the moderators are doing a good job. I don’t see the need to change anything as it is now.

I definitely think the language standards need to be raised, as the Duke said. I’m sure other people such as Cometgreen would do a good job, but I think the Duke would do an even better job, based on my experiences with him.
