Title: New Mods?
Post by: Ceres on March 01, 2017, 10:14:38 AM
Since the mods Rai, Kristina, and Mercedes (and Deca) haven't been active in months,does anyone else think we should maybe have new mods? Partly to delete the international catalogue of spam in the introduction, and partly because we should probably have mods that come on at least semi-regularly in case something besides spam that required moderation actually happened :P

You could always e-mail Scott about it like last time.

True. Who should I suggest as mods tho? I wouldn't want to bother him with the idea and then not have a list of people

New mods sounds like a good idea. And we haven't really had like community issues in a very long time so probably it would just mean deleting spam so anyone active would probably do fine

Agreed.

I think the last community issue was that guy with the Spock avatar that claimed to be an returning oldie and then ended up going all creeper 9_9

Okay, coolio, any suggestions/volunteers?

Yes yes, new mods are a good idea. But I don't really have an opinion on who just yet.

They should be people who've been here awhile, are responsible, and come on frequently.

Is there anyone on here that fits that criteria that would be comfortable being a mod?

I'd say Blue but idk if she thinks she comes on often enough anymore to do it.
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on March 03, 2017, 06:18:03 AM
I was thinking Blue and Clare two but yeah, I'm not sure if they have the time.
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 03, 2017, 06:26:31 AM
I mean. I'm on here like 25/7
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on March 03, 2017, 06:35:46 AM
I would volunteer but I don't know if I'd make a good mod.

I don't think Blue comes on often enough anymore (I miss her) but I think you two would make good mods. Although Julia, I know you said you were considering leaving, I assume that isn't true anymore?
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 03, 2017, 07:56:19 AM
That awkward moment when you wanted to volunteer to be a mod in your original post, but wasn't sure anyone thought you were good enough.

I can do it if you guys are sure you're comfortable with that.

Okay so we got me, Julia, and Blue. I think three is good, but are there any more recommendations?
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: Ceres on March 03, 2017, 08:32:20 AM
Yeah, if we have three then it should be good if one of you guys are too busy :)

I shall email Scott Once he replies to my original email

...Kira, remember last time you emailed Scott? Which email did you use? Because I'm afraid I used the wrong one .-.
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 03, 2017, 09:00:16 AM
Ummm I will try to find it
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: Ceres on March 03, 2017, 09:03:04 AM
I used the one on his official profile but he hasn't responded yet so I'm paranoid I sent it to an inactive email
Title: Re: New Mods?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 03, 2017, 09:13:37 AM
I think thats what I used, but I can't find the emails. It'll probably take him a couple days and from what I remember when rai emailed him was he didn't even reply, he just made people mods
Title: Re: New Mods?

Oh, true. Well, I sent him the link to this thread so he'll probably see :P

I'm not in the roleplays as interested as I used to but I still come on because I like the people here.  :)

As long as I wasn't the only mod I'd be fine.

I've had to deal with problematic members on site before, alone as staff and that wasn't pleasant.

Glad you're staying :)

If Scott ends up reading this topic, *coughcough* meetup?*cough*

In the mean time, know that I still get mod emails and do randomly appear to take care of the reports you guys send :).

Just remember to report the posts and we will know to deal with it
